THE AXOLOTL DECK THE AXOLOTL DECK

The Axolotl Playing Cards are a project created to help support the axolotl conservation efforts in México by spreading knowledge about this amazing creature through the art contained in these playing cards.

AXOLOTL AXOLOTL

The Axolotl is famous and beloved, a celebrity among amphibians. Named after an Aztec god and the inspiration for a Pokemon, it can heal itself better than Wolverine from the X-Men, even regrowing lost limbs. 

In nature, the Axolotl is in peril. It is native only to Lake Xochimilco, a UNESCO World Heritage site outside Mexico City.

In 2006, the species was declared critically endangered due to habitat degradation and the pervasiveness of invasive fish in the lake. In 2009, experts estimated that the axolotl population had fallen 90 percent in the past four years, a decline further exacerbated by urbanization. In 2015, scientists briefly believed that the critter might have gone fully extinctin the wild—only to find one a few weeks later.

This little guy its been in danger for a long while now and needs our support to survive.

If this project gets funded, We will be able to donate 100% of all profits produced from the decks of cards that remain after the campaign.

Donations will be focused on different conservation efforts projects that will help restore the axolotl, like donating to Units for Environmental Management (better known as UMAs in México) which are special spaces dedicated to the breeding of axolotls and Various projectsdedicated to restore the natural environment of the Axolotl in Xochimilco.

ACE OF HEARTS UNDER WATER ACE OF HEARTS UNDER WATER

Axolotl Playing Cards features original art for every card it contains (court cards, aces, joker, regular number cards and back design) inspired in the Axolotl and its natural environment, the design focuses on 3 main elements:

  • The Axolotl 
  • Water 
  • Water hyacinth

The back design illustrates how the axolotl interacts with this elements that are constantly present through all its life. Ripples in the water created by the movement of the axolotl pass through the water hyacinths, this scene displays the harmony that its present between the 3 elements the water hyacinth, the axolotl and the water.

The aces were inspired by the Axolotls cute almost child-like looks and the curious interaction that they sometimes have with different plants (in this case the water hyacinth).

      Because it’s never too early for Christmas themed kickstarters...

      This is an unusual looking concept:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tabulagames/volfyirion
       
      It's a modestly priced deck building card game (€9) that has an optional dragon which costs €18 by itself. Combined it is €25 (with a few €22 early birds left).

      It's a really interesting looking dragon.

      Skirmish game and miniatures for a post apocalyptic world.

      Mini selection is a little confusing and I’m unsure if individual minis can be ordered separately... but I’m pretty sure I saw Dastardly and Muttley in there along with Penelope Pitstop, so this has my attention.
       
      Plus giant mutant ants and scorpions. Damn dirty apes on horseback. Motorcycle gangs and a cast of dozens.

      About
      Hi everyone.

      Welcome to our 2nd project. The Meatwalker 28mm scale creature and rider.

      This miniature was sculpted by Johan Tieldow and has been master cast by Lancaster Castings in resin. It will also be cast in metal by Macrocosm Miniatures.

      We are looking to get £250 to put this into full production. Its a big miniature and has so much character to it.
      Meat Walker Painted By David Stafford  We are offering this miniature in High quality resin and metal (see reward levels).

      Supplied with a 50mm round base (as seen in the pictures).

      It is a multipart miniature and requires assembly and painting (and pinning for the metal version).

      Suitable for a variety of different wargames and table top roleplay games, this would look great on the battlefield or in a dungeon somewhere. 

      If we hit our funding for the production moulding of these we will look at getting some alternate heads, arms and riders made. This would delay the fulfilment on these alternative versions only.
      Alternate Sculpt Ideas  And we feel a dwarf alternative for the pilot would be a good option too.
      Alternate Driver Goals!
      £1500 - More Options! 2 more versions will become available with alternative goblin pilots and troll arms. These will become options for you to add to your pledge.

      £2000 - Dwarven Pilots! We will do a set of 3 Dwarven Pilots for you to add to your collection. You will be able to order the pilot individually to replace the Goblin Pilot. 


      Add Ons (extra Trolls!)

      If you would like more than one Troll and rider then you can get 2 for £40.
      Or 3 for £50. Postage is free for the additional sculpts. For metal extras see the reward level.
      If we unlock extra parts we will give you the option of which trolls to choose.
