Super Chibi Round 3 by MidKnight Heroes Kickstarter (Final Day)

Recommended Posts

Thank so much for the support you guys have given.  With each KS we do we learn more and more. We sure how that we get some of these stretch goals unlocked including the bust. Starting in 2018 we have decided to put most of our focus on our fantasy Chibi line of miniatures and then focus on our Sci-Fi Chibi's. We also want to start working on more standard 32mm miniatures and have decided we will start off with a range of fantasy miniatures first. Not sure when we will be able to get those out but the work has started. See you guys a Reaper Con and when you're there come by booth 16 and we will give you a demo of our game Super Chibi A.C.E.

I'll be honest - I'm in on a Super Chibi Round 3 pledge now, but I'm not interested in Absolute Valentine at all.  If it doesn't look like we'll reach the bust, I'll probably go down to a Chibi Pledge and choose Deyanni and Shin as add-ons.

 

But I really like Deyanni.  And the bust looks nice too.

Thanks John for your input. Yeah, it seems AV is not popular among most and that is fine. We love him but we are a little bias. :) With that said we know the main direction we need to go moving forward. We need to put more focus on our fantasy side and less on our modern and Sci-Fi since most tend to like the fantasy side more. Now that does not mean we will not do Sci-Fi because well I love Sci-FI specialty Mecha (im a Gundam nut) it just means that when we do these sets that two of them need to be fantasy based and not the other way around.

Friday Update!

(we like to give updates on Friday if we have anything to report. But we don't have anything today but, we updated you anyway. :) 

Not much to report except that we are 1/2 way to unlocking the Midknight Bust. This is a figure we really want to get unlocked as there is no Chibi bust that we know of on the market right now. Let's see if we can get the word out and get her unlocked. 

#GenCant

As you may or may not know GenCon is going on right now. We so wanted to be there but could not make it this year. One of these years we will make it, I just know it. If you're there stop by the Ninja Division/SodaPop Miniatures booth and check out the Golden Kobold chibi painting contest. We are sponsoring that event with Ninja Division this year and it's going to be an annual thing. Also if you enter the contest and place in any category with a Midknihgs Hero miniature you will win the ability to help design a character in our next core set.

 Have a great weekend heroes and if you're at GenCon have a GREAT con! 

See you when we unlock MIdknight Bust!

Natakue

 

 OK, Heroes, this is it! The last week of Super Chibi Round 3. We have made some amazing progress and we are over 1/2 way there to unlocking the MidKight bust. So let's see if we can get some goals set to get that bust unlocked. Let see if we can hit 63 backers by the end of today. (8-21-2017) If we can, we will throw in a copy of both the Super Chibi Origins Seed ebook with your pledge and our art book as well.  You will get Super Chibi art book, Super Chibi Origins S.E.E.D. and Super Chibi Origins Tactics ( this rounds origins book) with your pledge.

Let's see if we can make this happen!

"OK, let's do this. Early in the Kickstarter, it was asked if we would put a pledge level in that would allow you to get some prepainted Chibi. We thought about it and the last 24 hours we will be opening a limited pledge that will do just that. Now, this will just be for the core set to be painted nothing else but hey, it's a painted set. So who's painting them? Natakue will be the painter for these sets so each set will be different and painted up to high table top standards. 

Who is Natakue? ( Yes I'm talking about me)

Who am I? Well, I'm the owner of MidKnight Hereos but for a time was a pro painter that painted things from 40k to Infinity and even Chibi. I enjoy painting when I have time for it and my favorite miniatures to paint are Chibi. I will add some video references of what I can do. This was back when I did some pro stuff for my YouTube Channel before I started MidKnight Heroes.

Now, this pledge level will be very limited and will cost a bit more. How much more?

The pledge level will be at $150 and will add some extra time for delivery. Like we said it will be limited and only be three of them. So if you're interested you will have to back quick. If this is a hit then we may look into on our next Kickstarter having more slots and other painters painting some.

Now, why do this now? Well, we really want to get the MidKnight Bust unlocked and we feel this could help that happen. So keep an eye out for this pledge level and thank you all for your support.

Thank you so much! Because of you all, we were able to unlock the bust and are now on to stretch goal #2. We have another fantasy based character for this stretch goal and she is a character from our Super Chibi Clash world. Her name is Nona and she is a Uni. Uni are a peaceful race that has an innate ability to wield and control the arcane. They are not huge fans of conflict but if forced, can lay down some damage.  Nona will unlock at the $3000 mark in our Kickstarter and included into all pledge levels.

 WOW, that was fast! We hit $2000 real quick today. What does that mean? The MidKnight Bust was unlocked and all pledge levels will now receive this in their rewards. AWESOME! Good job!

Stretch Goal #1 UNLOCKED!

 So whats next?

How about another character, this time from our Super Chibi Clash world. Let me introduce to you, Nona. Nona is a mage from the race known as the Uni. The Uni are a very peaceful race that has an innate ability to wield the arcane and perform magic feats. feats. They tend to shy away from any form of combat but if push comes to shove they can do some serious damage. 

Nona will be unlocked at the $3100 mark.

      The only issue I have is the number of claims they are making. Not sure how many have actually been proven.

      The second of the superdeformed Chibi hero minis from the Bones 4 core set that I have painted, here comes Arnise the Elf Barbarian.
      Kissed by fire.
       

      I have no idea if she actually is meant to be a barbarian or not.
       

      Getting that much skin smooth is not an easy task, especially not by drybrushing. ...oh damn I forgot the freckles!
       

      Same height, different scale.
       
       
      B4Core#118 Arnise
      from the Small World Heroes subset in the Bones 4 Core set, 2019
      Reaper Miniatures
      Sculpted by Gene Van Horne (I think!)
      Made in Bonesium PVC

      Overview The 1000 page Hardcover Series by Jason Brubaker has finally come to it's epic conclusion. Now is your chance to collect all six hardcover books at a massive discount! All six books are first printing. The series will NOT be reprinted in this form again. Once they run out-of-stock, these collector books will be out-of-print. There will only be 2000 to 2500 copies of the complete series available. Hi, I'm Jason Brubaker and this is my new COMPLETE comic called Sithrah.
      I've worked as a professional Storyboard Artist, Animator and Visual Development Artist in Hollywood for 20 years on movies like Blade, Pitch Black, and the Kung Fu Panda Trilogy. In 2015 I quit my coveted and cushy job at Dreamworks Animation to pursue self-publishing my own graphic novels and I've been doing it ever since. My first graphic novel series is called reMIND and it won a few awards. 
      Sithrah 5 - 176 pages
      Sithrah 6 - 208 pages 
      Sithrah is a project very close to my heart. It is a journey about "the Leap of Faith" of a little girl who travels in and out of the spirit world to try to find her missing father. It is heavily inspired by my love for Miyazaki's movies but with a western worldview. 
      For this final campaign, I am printing the last 2 books in the series. The artwork is complete and pretty much ready for the printer. The last 2 books contain a total of 380 full color pages.
      Best of all, the final book is not scheduled to be released until the end of 2020 and so only backers will be able to read the full story without having to wait for the release date. If this campaign does really well and we sell out of copies, you will be the ONLY PEOPLE who will have copies of Sithrah 5 and 6. 

      The only reason I am able to print these high quality books is because of you. You guys have come through for each campaign and made it possible for my crazy stories to get published. You are my financiers, friends, editors, collaborators, inspiration, motivation, mentors and marketing partners. I could not have done any of this without you. You have changed and blessed my life in so many ways on this 5 year journey to complete Sithrah and I cannot thank you enough for helping me get these books made and onto coffee tables around the world.

      50% off of my entire back catalogue.
      Indiegogo exclusive! I am slashing the prices on all my old books for this campaign. This will be the cheapest price that you will be able to purchase Sithrah or reMIND. That means that you can get the entire Sithrah 6-book hardcover set for as low as $99. 
      Get Sithrah 6 a YEAR before anyone else!
      The release dates for each book is spaced out by a year for retailer orders and Amazon orders. That means that only you will be able to read the final Sithrah book a year and a half before it's release date and 6 months early for Sithrah 5.
      And if we sell all of the print run in this campaign then it means that you will be the ONLY ones who have a copy and I not release it in stores or on Amazon. Why would I limit the print run? Because the previous books only had a print run of 2500 copies and in order to print more copies of Sithrah 5 & 6, I would also have to reprint Sithrah 4, 3 and 2. And since I don't have that kind of money laying around I will not be reprinting those older books again.
      Win Exclusive Gifts
      You are my marketing experts! I need your help in spreading the word to all your friends and family and in return I will give you exclusive gifts and rewards. Watch the video below to see just how easy it will be to get something unique from this campaign like a sticker, art print or original inked page from the books.
      VIDEO
      Book Specs.
      Sithrah 1: Kingdom of the Air -  96 pages
      Sithrah 2: Propositions - 160 pages
      Sithrah 3: The Symbol - 188 pages
      Sithrah 4: The Deep - 176 pages
      Sithrah 5: Light City - 176 pages (NEW)
       Sithrah 6: The End - 208 pages (NEW)
      Only 500 copies of the new books have a signed and a numbered collectors bookplate.

      Art Contest - Get Your Art Printed in the Book!
      Just like my past publications, I want to include some guest art in the back of the printed books. And so… ART CONTEST!!! Submit your art while the campaign is active to get a chance at getting it published in the gallery of Sithrah: Book 5 or 6. Send me your amazing artistic version of the Sithrah characters to be printed in the book... FOREVER! If you make it into the book, you will be credited with your art. 

      The page dimensions are 6.75 inches (wide) x 10.5 inches (tall). Please make sure all art is 300dpi when scanned. The deadline for submission is the end of the campaign. Please send all submissions to CoffeeTableComics@gmail.com for consideration. I'll pick the final winner(s) for the book. :)
      Add-Ons
      I will be offering Add-ons when you take the survey after the campaign is finished. You will then have the option to add single books to your order as well as copies of reMIND and other books of mine at a discounted price. Because there are already so many books and options with this campaign I decided to keep the Add-Ons separate. But not to worry, you will have the option of adding things to your order prior to shipping.
      Timeframe
      The books are pretty much ready to go to the printer. I'll be preparing the files in InDesign while the campaign is active. The moment the campaign is finished I will deliver the files to the printer. The printing schedule will be about 2 months and so you will get your books before Christmas. International orders might take a little longer. 
      Why so Much Money?
      I've been making beautiful hardcover graphic novels for 10 years now. Sithrah: Books 1 - 4have already been printed with high quality cloth bindings, foil stamped covers and thick delicious paper. Yes, I said delicious. 
      To wrap up this series, I am trying to print the final two books at the same time. It usually costs about $12,000 to $15,000 to print just one book like this, and not only am I printing two books, I plan to make a collectors slipcase as well. The shipping costs have been anywhere between $8000 to $30,000 on my past campings and so that is why my funding goal is $45,000. If I don't reach this goal then you will be refunded and the books will not go to print. But I am confident that we can easily make this happen.
      Win Inked Pages and Prints!

       
       
      --------------------
      I'm a backer of the previous 4 books, and have also backed for these two books.

      Hello All, 
       
      Came across this looks interesting so thought I would leave it here
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oraclesights/oracle-sights-handheld-projection-devices-for-tabl?ref=email
       
      I've been running games for 20+ years and I can hand wave AOE or mark it out with dice etc, this just looks like it would be fun and satisfying to see the full fireball effect in living color so to speak.
