About

DEAD MAN'S CHEST

Squire Olsen, Dr. Edwards, and the rest of the EOE gentlemen having asked me to help promote the whole particulars about this Treasure Island Kickstarter, from the beginning to the end, keeping nothing back but the bearings of the Casting Room, and that, only because there is still castings not yet purchased, I take up my pen in the hope of being paid by John in the year of grace 2018, and go back to the time when John first presented his plan for this Kickstarter and the stained old Salesman with the sabre cut first took up his lodging in the EOE Office. I remember him looking over his desk and whistling to himself, then breaking out in that old Casting Room Pirate Song:

“Fifteen men of a dead man's chest, Yo ho ho and a Pirate Kickstarter, Drink and the devil had done for the rest, Yo ho ho and a Pirate Kickstarter”

The first 4 sets include all the named Characters from the book.

THE TOUGHEST OLD SALTS

The 5th Set includes the Characters in the book that were not named. I have taken the liberty of calling them The Toughest Old Salts.

"We got together in a few days a company of the toughest old salts imaginable--not pretty to look at, but fellows, by their faces, of the most indomitable spirit.”

THE BLACK SPOT DEAL

"...But what is the Black Spot Deal, John?", I asked.

"It's a Rare Deal, Mate. People keep their weather eye open for such deals, then buy them on their honor.  

People who is smart as paint is likely to lose their dead lights if they don't see how good this deal be. A collection of the finest Pirate's Pewter. 30 Dirty Scoundrels, Monkeys, Artillery, Barrels & Treasure Chests and even Captain Flint himself"

Why are you talking like this John? "Yarrr, I dunno" he replied

 All miniatures 28mm scale and are cast in fine Pewter. Miniatures are supplied unpainted and a few require a little assembly.

Risks and challenges

The Major challenge is time
Most of the design work has been done eliminating the lion's share of work needed for pre-production.
We are working with Fortress Figures to do the Molding and initial casting. Jeff and Ben are highly decorated Veterans of the Kickstarter industry and have over a hundred successful Kickstarters under their belts!
I am very confident that we will meet all deadlines in plenty of time.

      I almost backed for ROME and JAPAN, but somehow the proportions of the humans seem a bit off?
      They look like their legs are too long?
      I'm in doubt, I like a lot of it, but something looks odd about them.
       
      Is this just me or am I right?
      Maybe a sculptor like @TaleSpinner can tell me if I'm right?

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
