  1. Kickstarter successfully funded on November 17th. Thanks to all of our Backers we were able to raise over $7,000. Now we're getting into the nitty-gritty of production and packaging. It's not too late for Late Backers -- simple go to our Kickstarter project page and click the "Follow Along" button to get access to Late Pledges and Add Ons.
  2. Nearly to $7K in total pledges thanks to all of our Backers! More free Stretch Rewards have been unlocked. We've also announced that all Backers will receive a free monstrous guide to the Fungal Mysteries of the Depths. This PDF will contain dozens of monsters with stat boxes (5th edition), illustrations and extended back stories and ecology write-ups. The expected length will be 24 to 36 pg in length and I've included a preview. Only 12 hours left to back!
  3. We're heading into the final 48 hours and the Kickstarter has made some really nice progress. We just about at the break even point financially, so we can reinvest in the project and unlock some new minis. below are a few of the minis likely to be unlocked over the weekend. Thanks to all of our Backers so far!!
  4. @dschumm - Thanks for your positive feedback. Shipping to Europe can be expensive. The cost for 8 oz or less will be about $16 to ship (laments the cost to ship via post). I set that to be about $29.99 usd in purchases, so that would be the cost for the Ancient plus its Children, if this helps. @Corsair - Thanks for the thought. Do you have a link to a Facebook page where I can take a look at some of @malefactus sculpts?
  5. We've added 3 more Mushroom Folks to the Stretch Rewards. Pedro is having a little fun with these concepts. We hope to have two more soon. In addition to this 5 piece set, we're hoping to do at least one more. And are looking for ideas. The complete collection is listed here so you can see how all 19 concepts -- 28 miniatures have already been created from these concepts thanks to Pedro!
  6. @Highlander - Thanks for your interest! Here's a recently revealed Phantom Fungus cast in clear resin. Hopefully this piques your interest. It's available as an Add-On. We've also re-imagined this curious monster first introduced in the late 1980's. You can read about its ecology here: https://www.mortalarrow.com/the-scroll/burning-gehenna/phantom-fungus/
  7. We're now Live and Funded (within first 12 hrs) and also moving toward our second Stretch Reward level! We've also revealed the Gas Spores and Ustilagor with full 5e write ups! We'd love for you to check them out!
  8. Thanks Elbon! Pedro Navarro deserves all of the credit. Regarding pricing we have a few Pledge Levels, the first starts at $35. There will be Stretch Rewards as well as. All minis are available as Add-Ons and the price per mini will vary depending upon the size. All except 1 is under $20, with must running under $10. Currently we plan to include 28 minis in the KS, but this may grow...
  9. Thanks Sanael and others for taking a look. Special thanks to Orlando for already spreading the word!! Here are some other images that I recently posted on Facebook of the actual sculpts by Pedro. I've made sure to include The Rasper (half-bug fungus) which is the largest of the "Corrupted Myconids".
  10. Warren of Vile Fungi is scheduled to start at 7:00 pm EST on Friday, November 1. It will include over 2 dozen individual fungoid-based miniatures developed and sculpted by Pedro Navarro. He's been working on this project for over 2 years in collaboration with Mortal Arrow. It's a deep dive into heroic, fantastic, and terrifying fungal beings from the 1970's to the present. Ascomoids, Gas Spores, Basidironds, Ustilagors, corrupted Myconids, and heroic Myconids are just some of the many hand-sculpted miniatures from Pedro. The project itself will be live for only 2 weeks, so please consider supporting this effort by Mortal Arrow and Pedro Navarro. Every little bit of aid is important to us, so we kindly ask that you follow this project at the link below: https://www.kickstarter.com/…/12638849…/warren-of-vile-fungi You can see more details about the miniatures on the Mortal Arrow Facebook and Pedro's blog here: http://mr-bugman.blogspot.com/ We will be posting details and updates on this thread as well. Thanks in advance for everyone's help and enthusiasm!!! We are very excited to bring scary, and heroic, fungi to peoples around the globe!!
  11. We've hit our first Stretch Goal and officially unlocked the Arachnid Rider set (Tikki Troll rider and Giant Pedipalp steed). The next Stretch Goal is less than $1500 away and includes a shaman-type Death Kahuna Tikki Troll, as well as a wondrous set of Giant Rhino Beetles by Pedro Navarro (modular sets that allow up to 9 different beetle styles).
  12. "Early Bird-Only" Rewards are Unlocked! See here for details: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263884974/tikki-trolls-fantasy-metal-miniatures/posts/1908504 All Early Bird Pledge Levels close at midnight, tonight (June 11), so please consider signing up soon to get a guaranteed reward.
  13. Just passed the Funding Level! Thanks to all of the Backers. Now we have a bit more than three weeks to add as many minis as possible. First up is my personal favorite, the Arachnid Rider Set. The Tikki Troll rider will be sculpted by Paul Muller and the Giant Pedipalp has already been sculpted by Pedro Navarro. Take a look at the artwork by Bobby Penafiel and let me know what you think. Just $2,500 in Pledges gets us their.
  14. Thanks Joshua! Let's try to give Paul Muller some extra work this summer. :-) I may be making this project a bit more collaborative than I intended with the Backers because, you know, it's nice to give the customer what they want. It's also more fun from my perspective. So comments and feedback on the Kickstarter page are always welcome from any of the Backers. Cheers!
  15. A couple things of interest for the Tikki Troll project: 1) We’ve added Bags of Bugs to the initial list of Add-Ons. These will include a Bag of Beetlings and a Bag of Arachlings (little Pedipalps). Both sets of small bugs will be sculpted by Pedro Navarro. The Bag of Beetlings is actually complete and I’ve included a few pics (courtesy of Pedro). These Add-Ons will be $5 for each bag. I’m not quite sure how many will be in each bag, but will be in the range of 4 to 12. 2) We'll be running a contest every two to four days. Winners will get free stuff (all types of miniatures from Mortal Arrow's vaults). Anyhow, to play you must back. So if you're considering to be a Backer, join in early for some fun puzzles, riddles etc.
  16. Thes Hunter - thanks for the compliment on the Totems. You bring up a good point. I'm fine with you using funds that way for the Troll Warrior reward level, but maybe I should have a $5 Add-On Only Reward to avoid confusion. I hadn't really considered this.
  17. Thes Hunter - Yes, absolutely. What are you looking for and I can let you know the projected price. BTW - thanks for the pledge.
  18. The Kickstarter is now live. Thanks for your words of encouragement and support. The goal is to keep the project at a level that is easy to manage and carries almost no risk for me or for the Backers. For example, many of the sculpts are finished, master molds made and limited product runs in hand. My hope is that if this is successful, then Mortal Arrow can continue to pull iconic RPG humanoid types (both evil and good) out of canon and place them into different cultural milieus. To let you know, Lin’Chi and I have consciously developed our fantasy universe to be antithetical to the all too commonly used European cultures. There are so many interesting aspects from other ancient cultures to be explored. I hope that some of you will find it interesting too.
  19. Paul Muller has begun sculpting a tribe of Maori warrior-themed trolls. All arms and heads are interchangeable for customizing your gang of trolls to have its own unique look. Go feral with claw and tooth alone. Add some fearsome leiomano war clubs and bone-barbed spears. Turn up the regeneration factor with an array of mutated troll body parts. Or go macabre, with gruesome “living” weapons and arachnid augmentations. This tribe will have up to 9 different all-metal miniatures from 38mm to 54mm tall. This first Kickstarter project will be of a manageable size and well controlled. I’d be remiss not to mention that Pedro Navarro has sculpted some terrifying pets for the Tikki Trolls including, Giant Pedipalps, Giant Rhino Beetles, a Giant Slug from Hell and a Colossal Rhino Beetle the size of a house. Take a look – your feedback is important. Thanks! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263884974/1559271584?token=9243891
  20. Thanks to Thrym for being a wonderful Host. Lin’Chi and I met the whole gang, watched Marvel movies, chatted and painted … a lot. I had the time, and no distractions, to make progress on one of the FDs Lemures. Lots of fun!!
  21. @Werewolvians - thanks for your interest. It seems your thread got shunted to the back closet of the forum section. In general, the Reaper Forum has been pretty rigorous about their “no commerce†rule. This is fine, and there is plenty of good discussions here, but it does make it difficult to communicate any commercial details on their board. If you’d like, you can read direct customer feedback on the Mortal Arrow Facebook page. Alternatively, here’s a thread on Lead Adventure Forum that may help: http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php?topic=80999.0
  22. Really wonderful job. The subtle paint scheme, matches the melancholy look on these wretched little creatures. I love the touches on the bases.
  23. I had a chance to speak with Brett this past weekend. I realize he's not kept up with his email responses, so I can't comment on this. He has acknowledged that the effort to pack and ship is well beyond what he expected. The good news for those international Backers is he indicated that most, if not all, of these shipments will be ready to go in the next few weeks (he's waiting on one of the molding houses for more product). Also, regarding the webstore, Brett and I have been working on a reboot. However, we don't want to put anything out until after he's completed fulfilling pledges to all Backers. For those with partial shipments, he's aware, and he's intending to send the rest once everyone has received at least their first shipment. Please don't lose hope on this one, They will arrive -- late yes -- but will arrive.
  24. Beagle and KayBee, Sorry for not seeing your mails earlier. Didn’t notice until Beagle’s last comments. I’m a bit wary to comment on this project because of all the bad karma associated with the last KickStarter I got personally involved with. For those who care about such things, there are two reasons for the slow fulfillment: i) waiting on resin pieces for Orcus and the Great Beast. Both of these minis are quite big, and Brett (at the molder’s suggestion) decided that cost was too much. The molding took months to complete and the final shipment just went out to Brett; ii) the time required to pack and ship each order is much more than Brett was expecting. He’s got a new job, with less free time than before. It is my understanding that 35% is packed up, of which some have already shipped. Most of the other orders were waiting on the two big pieces mentioned above. I believe that money is NOT an issue with this project. Though I’d be very surprised if Brett has made money on this KickStarter, he’s willing and able to cover any shortfalls. It’s not a matter of "if", but rather "when" with this project will be completed. As for communication from Brett, I’m not sure and I won’t comment. He did mention that he should have pics of the Great Beast in short order, which probably will be included in a general update.
  25. For as much as it's worth, I've been in contact with Brett. It's my understanding that he has all minis inhand and is in the process of packing and shipping. Over the past month he's been pre-occupied with personal things though. I don't think the project is at risk of failing, though I understand the lack of communication is not helpful. I'm waiting on these beautiful Muller sculpts too.
