RAFM Airship Pirates Miniatures have been available since May of 2012. The product line started with 32mm miniatures of the six Abney Park band members. Since then the line has grown to eleven miniatures. However we wish to upgrade this product line by adding new miniatures to it. Silver Fox Productions Inc. will launch their new fundraising program for RAFM Airship Pirates Miniatures at kickstarter.com.

Look for this program going live on Wednesday October 15, 2014! Check our our website at www.rafm.com or visit us on Facebook at RAFM Airship Pirate Miniatures to get updates.

Our Kickstarter looks to build on our past fundraising programs by being affordable, have shipping included, be EU friendly, and get new figures sculpted.

RAFM Airship Pirates Miniatures line provides gamers with pieces to bring to life the Airship Pirates roleplaying game, in which players take on the role of real life pirates on an alternate timeline where steam powered airships rule the day. RAFM Airship Pirates Miniatures are hand sculpted white metal miniatures which can be painted or used to represent characters and monsters during game play or just be collected. The Role Playing Game has won “Best Roleplaying Game†at the 2012 UK Games Expo Awards. It has also won awards from the Steampunk Chronicle’s Reader’s Choice Awards and Diehard GameFAN’s Tabletop Gaming Awards. The game has also had several nominations for it’s artwork. RAFM pledges to continue this high standard of art with the miniatures we produce.

This fund raising project aims to build the world of Airship Pirates through a new miniatures for this product line.

There is also a link to the models in RAFMs store for pre-order

They did one thing different that means the new one is almost guaranteed to succeed. They posted an update to the failed project (which raised almost $9k before being cancelled) with link to the project preview. They will be offering the same 11 existing minis for $40 with free shipping to US, Canada and EU, $10 shipping elsewhere plus all stretch goal minis will be added for free as well. The reason it is sure to succeed this time is the goal is $100, so they only need 3 backers to fund. The first stretch goals (each a free mini) are set at $2000, $3000, and $4000.

 

The first project was trying to raise $16,500, raised $8,867 when it was cancelled early, and offered 6 minis for $45 and 9 minis for $70, the same six and nine that are in the eleven they are offering here for $40. Or 14 minis if they raise $4k. Of course, with smaller dollar value pledges they need more pledgers, the last one had 76 backers when it was cancelled, this one will probably need 100 just to hit the $4000 stretches. And since I would imagine some of the 76 previous backers probably picked them up at retail, many of them will need to be new backers. Still, it looks like it could be very successful, a dozen or so nice looking steam-punky minis for $40 will be hard to pass up. And their Cthulhu minis were great, this will be an easy back for me.

Since you won't answer questions posted directly to your kickstarter, I'll post it here.

 

Since this is a Canadian venture, why do Canadians have to pay for shipping within Canada, but the Americans get free shipping? (No offense to any American backers)

 

It seems counterproductive to alienate potential backers who live IN YOUR OWN COUNTRY.

Indeed, the "Shipping included to the USA, Canada and the EU" part in the pledge level descriptions does seem pretty self-explanatory.

 

I can't actually find the question posted to the KS comments, by the way. So unless by "posted" you mean "PM'd through contact creator", it would've been impossible to reply.

I'm not clear on what they're planning on doing different from their first failed kickstarter to make this one successful.

 

They made the funding goal only $100.....

 

I suspect this is like the dragon. The sculpts and molds were done allready so it's just a pre-order for these minis.

 

I hope them well, outside of Cuthuluu they haven't had much KS success and they're a good company.

      Hi chums!
       
      This is the latest Kickstarter project, expanding our fantasy range this time, and bringing light to the ones we have that might not have been noticed. Along with some super cool female minis, we have some brand new scenics too, and a whole bunch of add on bundles.
      I'll post more on the lead up, but for now if you're interested, could you click the "notify me" on the pre launch page and it will help the algorithms, and you know algorithms are the new gods!

      A new kickstarter from Crooked Dice. I've been following the publicity for this and it really appeals to me. Lots of very colourful figures and most of them are a nice change from the usual predictable gun-toting heavies. I've collected plenty of Crooked Dice figures over the years and always been very pleased with the quality.

      Story
      Welcome everyone to the Kickstarter campaign for Sun & Moon. Two highly detailed 1:20 scale (90mm) resin kits  cast in high quality resin. Sun Is roughly 100mm to the top of his head!
      Sun & Moon comparisment: Sun stands at nearly 100mm!!!
      This has been the project that has been the longest in the works and also our most expensive one to date! We could really use your help to bring these two kits onto the market so we do hope that you like what you see and will be able to back us and help us spread the word! :)
      Story
      Many years back, the idea to do some themed knights popped into my head and out of all of those, Sun & Moon were the ones that really stuck and kept coming back in my thoughts.  The idea to do two characters that are opposites of each other in every way really appealed to me. 
      Sun
      You have the Sun Knight, devout follower of the Sun God, a fiery and strong warrior with everything about him representing his deity. I can just see him painted in bright and warm colours that embody the very essence of the Sun!
      Moon
      And then you have the Moon Knight, a cool and brooding figure that operates under the cover of darkness, guided by the wisdom of the Moon Goddess. Very much a deadly warrior in her own right! Painted in moody hues that represent the colours that only moonlight can shower the world in.

      Nice models and one of the SG is a 20% discount on the Kimera Colors range (They will open a pre-order for their "almost-impossible-to-buy" colors at the end of April)
