Hrothgar's Hoard miniature cases

Recommended Posts

starting to hit those mid-campaign doldrums and want to get things moving again. The next wood unlock is Brazillian Cherry at $2,500. Go to the project here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/347848038/hrothgars-hoard-treasure-case-for-miniatures

 

What wood should I unlock after that? Bubinga? Bloodwood? Birdseye maple? let me know what you want!

 

I'm also including a facebook stretch goal. I just opened the facebook page under Hrothgar's Hoard. Get me to 50 likes and the unlock is an option for felt lining rather than foam padding. Use your case as a dice tray!

I'm always looking for ideas too! A larger case is in the works as a stretch goal, so get on board today and you can always upgrade when the stretch goal is released!

Love to back this, but I really need something larger.  I might anyhow to have an incredible looking case for a few key figures though.

 

These cases really do look fabulous Hrothgar.  Even Grendel would live in one.  :-)

@Harrek: Keep checking the page over then next 10 days or so. I'm currently working on some prototypes on a 8x12 size case that *should* hold about 30 minis. I know I'll be able to do it in oak, poplar, cherry and maple (maybe even curly maple). Some exotics may also be available (purpleheart seems to come in wide boards.) Cost is looking to be at about 2x the price for the Rogue cases. The new line of cases should hold about 3x the number of minis that the Rogues will hold.

 

@scorpio: I've thought about ebony, but I'd have to have considerable interest Ebony before I could unlock it. Ebony runs about $70 a board foot here and I'd have to buy a full board regardless of whether 1 case is being made or 5 of them. A single board could easily run $250+, so I'd either have to charge that much for 1 box, or make sure that several people are willing to pedge so I could afford the wood.

 

@Nomad: well...they are going to need a place to put all those Reaper minis, right? :-)  Reaper is exactly the reason why I started this. All of a sudden, I have a ton of minis coming in and need a place to put them! But I understand...I spent more $$ between Reaper and Dwarven Forge, than I had in the past year on gaming.

 

I've just unlocked a new piece of artwork (line-art of "Doomed Princess" so it can be colorized) and only need a few more Facebook likes to unlock a felt option in the case rather than foam for those who want a nice dice tray. I've also updated the Stretch goal table and added the next couple woods (Padauk and Mahogany) as well as an epoxy upgrade. Stretch goals can be unlocked through pledge amounts, facebook likes or # of sponsors.

That is great news, I will keep an eye out for that.  Love to have a way to do custom artwork, but I realize that would be a huge and time consuming task.  I might have a local engraver do something personal on it anyhow.

A couple updates: 

 

The Facebook "likes" goal has been reached allowing felt backing instead of foam backing. The next FB goal is for 100 "likes" at which time I will unlock mahogany as a case option.

 

I am taking a survey to get some feedback from people interested in the cases. Only a few questions. Take a second and let me know your thoughts: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/14IjmsTOZ11SGU88ifn-r5OudFWcNbqHKMi6bUjQbsPc/viewform

 

Thanks to everyone for feedback and support

OK...we've broken another stretch goal. Padauk is now available. Also have some new stretch goals listed, so go take a look. I'm looking for some more facebook friends, more backers and higher $$$. All things can lead to new unlocks.

 

Also, check in tomorrow if you want a larger case. I'm unveiling the PRIEST line of cases that will hold up to 3x the number of figures on average that a ROGUE line will. Available in oak, poplar, maple, cherry, and quite possibly purpleheart. maybe other woods if there is enough interest and if I can find boards wide enough.

I have to say, I'm extremely impressed with both the product you are offering, and the care and thought you've put into your Kickstarter. I read the entire page, as well as the Risks and Challenges and most of the FAQ's, and I can tell that you've tried to plan for every eventuality (planning for waves of fulfillment if your KS goes viral was a smart move, and one that I wonder whether it was inspired by Bones 2 :) ). Your writing was clear, your pictures good, and I liked how you showed a few with the glare to demonstrate just how shiny the cases will be.

 

Our current financial status is a bit iffy right now, but I definitely plan on backing, and clicked the little "remind me" star so I'll remember to check again later. I'd love one of these gorgeous cases, if only for the PC minis in our games. :)

 

One question, though: How sturdy are the latches? Do they have springs in them so that they snap closed? I'd just like to know how firmly they stay closed. :)

 

Glad to see that you're fully funded already, and I wish you much continued success!  ^_^

 

Huzzah!

Oneboot: Thanks for the kind words. I actually owe a lot of the polish to the campaign to Stefen Pokorny over at Dwarven Forge. My original video and pictures were...ummm...lets say "less polished". Stefen saw my pre-launch page and gave me some great advice.

 

The Bones II campaign also heavily influenced my project (not just in the video where it is pretty obvious I stole from them). I really liked how Reaper did the Bones II campaign complete with waves for shipping. In fact, it is safe to say that if there wasn't a Bones campaign, I wouldn't be expecting a ton of minis that would need some cases to be made.

 

To answer your question, the latches do no have springs. But once some figures are in the case, since there are no holes cut in the foam to make room for the minis, there will be constant outward pressure on the latches. Since the latches use a hole-and-pin design, that outward pressure more or less 'locks' the latches closed. To open the case, you will need to slightly depress the two halves of the case together in order to release the latch. It is actually a pretty secure system. I won't swear it won't open if you drop the case, but should have no problems staying closed when transporting from point A to point B.

 

Thanks again for the comments. I hope to see you on board before the project ends.

 

John

Ooo, those Priest cases look awesome, and that is indeed a smashing deal!

 

One minor thing you might want to correct: In the picture where you show the Priest case with the minis in it, you said "Have giant sized minis? As long as they are not more than 1' in depth, this case will hold a whole family of them!"

 

1' should probably be changed to 1", since I've come across very few miniatures that are 1 foot in depth. ;)

 

EDIT: It looks like you used the same notation in the two pictures above it, too.

 

Huzzah!

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
