HSD anthro scifi miniatures

Recommended Posts

About this project

Welcome to the third Weapons Grade Funk Kickstarter! With the successfully funded launch of HC SVNT DRACONES and the work on additional expansions and editions well underway, I figured it was time to give players a way to represent their characters on an actual game mat. So this is it, folks: paintable, modular miniature kits for custom anthro characters!


Our goal is to sculpt a variety of different components, from heads to torsos to legs, wings, tails, you name it, and allow the buyer to select what they want, so their figure can be assembled looking more like what they see in their head, rather than what they see in a rulebook. Using Imagine3Dminiatures' Visor system, you'll be able to select from the wide collection of bodyparts produced by this kickstarter to assemble a custom figure, made to order.




WGF has a partner in this endeavor: the great folks at Imagine 3D miniatures, who already have an established miniature design line. We've been working together for months now to figure out prices, distribution, and order systems to best facilitate this operation.


   Test models have already been sculpted, printed, delivered, painted, and played with, just to make sure l the detail and material is up to snuff. Our test models are the same scale as the models that will be made available to you, but you'll have the ability to hand-pick heads, arms, legs, torsos and other components to make your hero completely your own. The results are beautiful and affordable in the small order numbers we expect from individual consumers.




3D printing technology has advanced by leaps and bounds recently, and now allows for the creation of extremely high detail, smooth figures at the 28mm (and sometimes even smaller) scale. This allows for high quality, rapid construction at comparatively low startup cost next to traditional mold injection. 3D printed mini's are more expensive per-unit on the consumer side (the material costs more than resin or mold injected plastic and takes longer to create), but the set-up costs are phenomenally cheaper. Brand new, from-scratch models can be created in a matter of days for a few hundred dollars, whereas injection plastic molds cost tens of thousands to produce and are then locked in shape, without allowing for customization unless every component is included in the same mold (resulting in more plastic use and a higher cost, which limits the major benefit of that method to begin with).





By working with 3D printers, we can afford to maximize the number of new sculpts in this miniature line, which in turn grants the greatest variety of options for you, the customer. Since the primary goal of this line is to create custom "heroes" and not necessarily full platoons of troops, the slightly more expensive per-unit price is mitigated by the fact that most people will only be buying one or two of them, rather than a dozen or more at a time. When we looked at the balance between saving you 5 dollars per figure, but only being able to afford to sculpt 5 different figure options, vs. the figures costing 5-10 dollars more, but having dozens and dozens of available options to chose from with the same funding goal, 3D stood out as the clear choice for custom, heroic figures for character representation. With this, you can make YOUR hero, instead of just selecting A hero.

They look great, but I am confused.


They talk a lot in the description about being able to order your own mini, but the pledge levels seem to be the existing cat figure (for $60 oww!!) and the the cat figure and the tauric cat figure for $120 (again oww!!!).  There is no pledge level to order a custom figure, the KS seems to be to fund the ability for them to start a company to allow others to order their custom figure.  Either I am being really dumb, or there is something really weird happening....

If I understand correctly you get the prints themselves, which are normally only used as masters by most companies dealing with renders.

I like the idea! I would most def. like to see more anthro's in sci-fi but I would rather just buy the miniature and be done with it. Setting a reminder for fun.

      I checked out the Scooby Doo cooperative game play looks like something fun to play with the kids (since he will probably be 10 when it delivers )

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
      Thanks again!
