XCase Enhanced and Insert - Active Minds Games

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone, first let me say thanks to all the great people who visited us at ReaperCon. You guys definitely made it our best Con yet. We sold out for the 3rd Straight year. We always love coming to ReaperCon!

 

Now it is time for us try again to restock and continue to make the best storage and display solution for miniatures on the Market, No Foam required. Our latest Kickstarter has launched, and this version of the Clear XCase will be better, stronger, faster...OK, maybe not faster, but definitely better and stronger. These units are able to withstand pretty much any normal usage scenario that you might throw at them, for, what should be, years to come.  Also, you will have a chance to get your hands on the first wave of organizational inserts we plan to offer for the XCase. The shelf and tray inserts that are add-ons will allow you to display your miniatures even more prominently during travel or will hold your dice, tokens, cards or whatever components your game has... except the board.

 

This is a relaunch as our September campaign came up short. We did quite a bit of marketing this time and we are doing better but we could still use your backing I hope you will come check it out.

 

XCase 2.0 Kickstarter

I have 2 clear cases from the last kickstarter. I hung them on my wall over my paint racks to hold WIP minis. They've been ideal for that. They hold most human sized minis mounted to corks or wooden candle holders. Are these the same dimensions as the ones from last time?

I'm definitely picking up something from this kickstarter, was very impressed with the cases I got from the last one :) The company are good at keeping you updated as well.

I like the cases as well. They stand up to abuse. I sent my case packed in the luggage and through the TSA hands. Arrived back home wiwitwiwith no cracks or dents. I know for this project,  they are making the plastic sturdier for the clear versions.

Won’t be backing this because of their use of Fedex for shipping to Canada.

Backed the previous Kickstarter and Fedex charged handling fees that were more than the customs fees they “collected”. The extra charges ended up being as much as I pledge for the kickstarter itself.

 

I order a lot of hobby/miniature things from the States and know had it been sent through US Postal Service and Canada Post there’s a good chance I wouldn’t have been charged customs fees and even if I had the handling fees wouldn’t have been anywhere near that high.

Yes, exact same dimension only much stronger material with some small feature improvements that may only be noticeable comparing units closely.

You are not the first person to bring this up and we feel your pain. We hate the cost of shipping and we will definitely be looking into USPS this time around we were not aware that they handled that sort of thing differently. We just wanted to offer the lowest base price. We are also in talks with some fulfillment services to see about using their services to lower costs to Canada.

What do you think of this Cool Variant. Talked to Reaper and we are going to make a branded unit if our Kickstarter Funds. This is just a mock up though so the image won't likely look exactly like this or even for sure be placed on the back of the unit but we will make it look good, where ever it ends up. These will be Kickstarter and Reaper/Event Exclusives. So be sure to check out campaign if you are interested.

Going clear with the Reaper logo makes me want to check and see what a stack of these would look like in a Detolf Case from Ikea...

Minis would probably look fine in one of those though it will probably take up more room space and be hard to transport your minis in it. :-)

 

The Reaper logo is just an optional (special event) unit, not required, same with the color. Most seem to like the clear units more than the others (produced 3 times as many clear in the original materials and sold out of all but a few) but we do carry the opaque units still and if we fund we will have more of the non branded clear as well.

      I'm not associated with these guys, but they make some pretty good MDF terrain, and are branching out into minis
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/knightsofdice/mirrors-of-tullarn-28mm-fantasy-wargaming-miniatures
       
      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.
