HSD anthro scifi miniatures

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.

      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.

      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      About
      -Hi everyone, this time I propose you a Fishing Village:
      5 Houses   7 Footbridges  1 Bridge -A few years ago I did something similar for video games 
      here you can see the video: and I've thought of creating models suitable for 3D printing.
      -The models are in scale for 28 mm miniatures and are divided into components to be assembled without glue only joints.
      -Doors, windows, nets and winches are printed separately.
      -Each house is playable inside, with working doors and on the ground floor there is a fireplace with the pipeline out.
      -The prints you see below have been made with an Ender 3, layer 0.2 mm, infill 5%, Pla Geetech white, the models have been designed to have as few supports as possible, I printed them with an overhang of 80 ° -85 °, support Z distance 0,3 mm.
      -I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 20x20x20 cm (for this scale).
      -Paint with cans and acrylic colors.
      -Each house needs about 500-800 grams of filament.
      -I put hooks scattered on the houses to attach cordage or oil lamps 
      -I remind you that only digital models will be sent to you, NOT PHISICAL ONES.
      * Good fishing ... *
      By removing the base you can have houses for a land village.
