Corvus Corax Miniatures - Reinforcements

Recommended Posts

Some of you might follow this project on social media, and know then that I am planning to run another Kickstarter. I would love to get some feedback of the preview link. Note that the page is currently a work in progress and some pictures aren't finalized. There are some placeholder in use at some parts, but it is just so that I can get the layout done. Again, I know, that this layout is rather basic looking and still not as graphical and professional as others. But I am not a professional and I am doing my best. :)

 

Some of you that followed my previous project will see that this one follows the same basic structure, but also that the funding goal is lower. This is a test, good or bad, to see if it will make any difference in regards to the funding. Maybe some earlier stretch goals might entice people on the fence to join. We'll see if there are enough interest in a project like this.

 

Anyway,as always, any feedback is appreciated. Good or bad. No offense is taken. Hopefully, I will be able to launch the campaign late September or early October.

Set to notify. Your minis are of amazing quality!

 

That being said, I find most interest in a couple of the stretch goals this time.

Really looking forward to this one! Ninja type dudes ftw. Great concepts and sculpts. Just based on what you've shared on FB. I'll hit up the preview tomorrow. Tonight it's Rocksmith time (just got a new bass) :)

Love your figures, but unfortunately I'll be unable to back you this time due to finances being tied up with the building of our new home and ReaperCon coming up next month. I wish you luck and hope to see you break all stretch goals and unlock everything. Next year I'll buy some more at retail when I have hobby spending money again. ::):

Even setting aside how much I'm COMPLETELY OBSESSED with the homages in the art...you don't often get a cool mini that's well sculpted and cast with a freaking' kusarigama :) I'm in for the Tetsu for sure. Not really digging the skull dudes, first of the line that I'm not into, so not the biggest problem in the world :) Really hope to see that first stretch unlocked.

 

Feedback:

 

Since you're going for boutique style, I'd like to see the concept/sculptor credits on the big graphics.

Overall the graphics could be cleaner. The spotty paint thing is kinda 80s imo, and I'm not in love with the palette used, both of these reduce readability of the section headers. I'm more of a fan of Kingdom Death's stripped-down less-is-more style, high contrast with little 'noise'. I'd give some mock-ups for you, but I haven't done design in a few years and I'm swamped here at work anyway :) Hate to give criticism without solutions!

Otherwise it's pretty clean and understandable. The pledge levels make sense and seem to fit all the basic needs.

 

Typos:

"Campaign-page" in rewards should just be "Campaign page"

On 'Messiah' pledge text: "totally 12 miniatures" should be "a total of 12 miniatures" (also found in the Harbinger pledge box and in the graphics for Pariah and Harbinger)

I'll have to wait and see more as it progresses. Imagine size and presentation is nice. I would like to see more angles of the miniatures but it's not necessary.

Looking good there and from the previous projects I'm sure the quality will be great

 

I'd agree with Cash that it would be good to credit the sculptors (I know you do on your facebook/dakka previews but not everybody will have seen them there), doing so may get you a few extra backers from fans of one or another of them too

 

(and being selfish a later launch is better as all my cash is committed to other things at present and I want them all)

Thanks mate.. I'll adjust those typos. :) And yeah, I'll add a small section about the sculptors. They deserve all attention they can get. :)

You contract the top tier, so it's a very attractive feature of your line. I think they shared the project on FB last time, but encourage them to do so again to get their fanbase who might not get the notification otherwise.

 

I mostly follow sculptors these days, I wouldn't know at all about Black Sun if not for them :)

Looks good to me. The only thing I am curious about is "Will the pick and choose levels be able to get minis from the past KS?" I can see you mentioned it in the add ons, but unless I am missing something I see no mention of it in the pledge levels. Info like that will probably get asked often and having it on the graphic would nip that in the bud. I like the addition of the Savings Percentage. Straight and to the point and also stimulates the I should spend a bit more to save a bit more.

Yeah, the headers are much more legible now. Don't forget to fix the 'totally' typo in the actual pledge levels :)

      Hello all - Chroniclers of Barbaric Splendor is now live. It features licensed miniatures from creators of swords and sorcery such as David C. Smith (Oron, Red Sonja, Bran Mak Morn) and Howie Bentley (The Snake-Man's Bane).

      It is perfectly reasonable that this will come up, so I wanted to post this here as well:
       
      It is no secret my first campaign was delayed, although fulfilled. Part of that was poor planning and expectations, and part was health issues that exacerbated each other and financial issues that arose from that. All such issues are in the past, and I am proud that I overcame them to fulfill what I feel was an amazing Kickstarter with amazing miniatures. Since then I have been operating Barbaric Splendor Miniatures and have been delivering excellent service and product. I have learned also from others in the industry and feel confident I am offering a well-thought out campaign that will be a success for all of us! 5 of the miniatures have already been sculpted, and sculptors lined up for the rest, including add-ons and stretch goals. Dark Platypus studio will be doing the casting - from previous experience I can attest to both the quality and timeliness of their work. Thus, the only risks would be possible delays in sculptor schedules for stretch goals and the fact that I will be doing all the packing and shipping myself when not working my regular job could lead to slower times getting things out if the campaign is wildly successful. I understand that some will be displeased with the delays of the first campaign, but I feel I have proven myself over the past year with Barbaric Splendor Miniatures, and I look forward to bringing more great Swords and Sorcery miniatures to you!

      You spoke and we listened ...
      Thank you for checking out our project. After our first successful project we are back with the same great detailed miniatures but in the 28mm scale many of you wanted.
      Made from injection moulded PVC we were incredibly happy with the quality of our previous models, the factory we worked with were very efficient allowing us to start to fulfil our Kickstarter a full two months early.
      We worked hard to have our sculpts in place meaning as soon as we are successful we can spring into action and instruct the factory to start the process. 
      Core Box Alpha containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Core Box Beta containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Pledge for both to make a saving. Both Core Boxes containing 4 large Animals (2inch base) and 12 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Containing various animals and companions these 2 core sets are everything you loved in the first but with a 28mm scale. 
        At a staggering 7" tall and 10" long the mighty Tarrasaque attacks... Think yourself lucky, he was originally intended to be 14" in height!

      I'm not associated with these guys, but they make some pretty good MDF terrain, and are branching out into minis

      About
      Mirrors of Tullarn is a new range of 28mm miniatures from Knights of Dice, set in a distinctive fantasy setting and cast in glorious metal!
      These characterful figures have been sculpted by Anton Ducrot (from Flytrap Factory) for tabletop miniature wargames and would look amazing in any fantasy setting, whether that is your Dungeons & Dragons or other roleplaying campaigns or as weary adventurers in your Frostgrave warbands or other tabletop games.
      We are using this campaign to fund the production molds and the initial release of 28 figures from four factions, the Anram, Tarusa, Lahari and Saresh, in glorious white-metal!  Hopefully (with your help!) we can also release a host additional figures in the form of freebies, add-ons and awesome stretch goals!
      A small band of Lahari faces of against some Saresh warriors All the miniatures have been sculpted and master molds created, we simply need the funds to make the production molds to put these figures into full production.
      With your help, we can bring these figures to market and hopefully get a good headstart on expanding the range quickly.
      The Anram defend their mountain hide-away from a marauding band of Tarusa raiders There are 8 simple pledge levels to choose from, we’ve broken them into easy to understand groups. Simply pick a pledge level, (each one represents a group of figures from the different factions), you'll then receive any FREE STRETCH GOALS unlocked during the campaign ... the more stretch goals that are unlocked, the more figures you get for free!
      A group of hired knights accompanied by their paymaster The Wanderer - no rewards, select this pledge to simply show your support!  Thank you!
      The Nomad - back the project at this level and you'll receive the Kickstarter Exclusive 'Void Witch', and gain access to the Add-ons and Stretch Goals to add more when they are unlocked. This pledge does not qualify for any free add-ons.
      Anram Nobility - receive the 7 Anram figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Tarusa Chieftain - receive the 7 Tarusa figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Lahari Seafarer - receive the 7 Lahari figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Saresh Labourer - receive the 7 Saresh figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Warlord of Tullarn - You will receive all initial 28 figures from the Anram Nobility, Tarusa Chieftain, Lahari Seafarer & Saresh Labourer  pledges.  You'll also receive all FREE stretch goals, access to add-ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      All-In! - You will receive all 28 figures from the Anram Nobility, Tarusa Chieftain, Lahari Seafarer & Saresh Labourer  pledges.  You'll also receive FOR FREE every unlocked stretch goal, add-on and the Kickstarter Exclusive 'Void Witch'!  This pledge is a little  bit of a gamble, but as the stretch goals start unlocking this pledge level really starts paying dividends!
      *25mm Round slotted base included with every miniature. 
      The masters of time, the Anram live high on the highest peaks across Tullarn Savage mountain clansmen, bent on domination and oppression! Masters of the oceans, rivers and trade the Lahari wear the finest silks and flaunt oppulent treasures Saresh tend to the fertile valleys and vast farmlands of Tullarn A true Warlord knows how to bring people together, and then pitch them at each others throat!

      Here is a Bones inspired kickstarter that I think my fellow painters will appreciate, a travel and display case for your mini.
