  1. Hopefully these will ship by July of 2017 for a Christmas in July sort of thing.
  2. Thank you gentlemen. I had no idea this thread was even taking place until recently. Thankfully a backer of this project told me about it. What more can I tell you? I bartended for several decades, and I have also held management positions. In this project the I'm the creative guy, and I do as much as I can. For the things I can not do I have hired awesome professionals, to help make some cool stuff. The $6,000 goal is low and doesn't even cover all of the costs encrued in the design and production of this project. Professional working artists are not cheap, and rightfully so! The artists I have hired are worth every penny spent. In regards to shipping, I reside in Louisville. We have Amazon here :) Also, the manufacturer is hip to Kickstarter fullfillment too, so I will see what they have to offer. I hope this helps. Thanks you.
  3. Hello I'm the guy who is launching The War in Christmas Village Kickstarter. For the folks who enjoy the designs thank you. The digital sculptor is Alex Peereira of Spec Toys, and I think his work is amazing. This is both my first Kickstarter and first venture into model making; I figure we all have ave to start somewhere. The $800 pledge idea was to see if anyone would be interested in a custom made model of their design. It appears there isn't much interest in custom work. I recently updated the Kickstarter with a Zombie Reindeer as stretch goal. Originally I had planned to manufacture the Zombie Horse, a sculpt based on a creature some players faced in a Village Hommlet based adventure I wrote, but folks prefer the Zombie Reindeer, so I chose that design instead. The reindeer has not been printed or painted, but the horse was. At the request of a couple of backers I included add-on options for multiple miniatures. The Snowman and Krampus designs are quite popular. The reason for the estimated shipping date in 2017 is that I would rather not disappoint backers with my first venture because of a failed shipping estimate. As I have learned, there will be unavoidable snafus in partnered creative endeavors aka chaos. Ideally I would love to have this project fulfilled and shipped in July. The goal is to get these beautiful sculpts into the hands of backers well before Christmas of 2017. I feel we are inundated with Christmas stuff earlier and earlier each year. I didn't want to be that guy who markets Christmas before Halloween. I feel I have put together a team of amazing artists to make this twisted holiday vision a reality, and thank you for opening up this dialogue. And lastly, I couldn't have a Krampus model without featuring his buddy :) ...and if this helps give me any sort of Dork Sided "street cred" here's a featured post on something else I made earlier this year with my friend James. http://www.beastsofwar.com/frostgrave/osprey-shows-stunning-frostgrave-table/
