Hmm...does anyone know anything about who is running this? I'm curious as to whether they have experience in making minis that need to be molded or not.  Given that everything here is 3D renders or prints, and there are a lot of undercuts in their sculpts; I'm curious as to how well the details on these will mold and cast in a production environment.

As best as I can tell (from my measly 10 minutes of research on their facebook and website), no they do not appear to have experience with making minis. They appear to have a pretty successful business selling what look like very nice gaming accessories (over 4000 sales on Etsy with all good feedback) and they have some D&D miniatures in their shop, but this appears to be their first foray into making miniatures themselves.

"Critit started out as a shop making wooden gifts and toys, my love of RPG gaming propelled it to be your one stop shop for all your gaming accessories. I welcome custom orders and love to hear your ideas."

 

ETA more from their Etsy page:

"I have been making wooden items for many years now, I was lucky enough to learn my trade in carpentry during an apprenticeship where I grew up in Germany. Having worked a number of jobs I have now decided to realise my dream of running my own business.

I ran a kickstarter project where I was fortunate to exceed my goal allowing me to finally purchase a shed/workshop to allow me to fully concentrate on my creations and take my starting business to the next level. Starting out making wooden decor items and Toys was great but my love of RPG games shone through and a range of gaming boxes where made and put on the website, these boxes where so popular I decided to fully concentrate on them and new products to turn my buisness into Critit.co.uk - Everything for the RPG gamer!

I enjoy every aspect of making the accessories and have met some fab people along the way. Custom boxes are a particular favourite as the ideas sent through are amazing and it shines through what a creative bunch us RPG gamers are :-)

Hope you find something you like :-)"

 

Also found the Kickstarter creator page: https://www.kickstarter.com/profile/163050832/created

They have previously successfully (as far as I can tell) run 5 kickstarters for dice. A 6th one (not the most recent one) was cancelled

I dunno.

I really like what they’re showing off but I kinda feel like I need to see what the final production minis will look like, which obviously can’t happpen until after this kickstarter is over.

 

The phrase “board game quality pvc” bothers me a bit, especially from a first time mini producer. There’s just so much that can go wrong.

Yep I'm hoping too! I'm in for the basic set.

 

You should get yours fairly early then- they stated in one of the updates that core boxes were going out first.

 

I added on the raptor/octopus/tressym expansion so I'm probably a bit down the line from you.

Just got mine in today, very happy with them. They look great! Apologies for the bad photo.

 

My favourites are the pack donkey, raven and the velociraptor from the expansion set. I really wish that I'd gone for the T-rex now.
