Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

Recommended Posts

Honestly, with the way Sir Cyr keeps pouting at me to give him a coaster at his computer desk... I'll be glad for more. We have six floating around at least, but they always seem to end up away from where he wants them.

Glad to hear that you got yours! Since it is coming from Spain, I wonder if it'll get to Canada in similar time as the US. I'll see soon! 

 

In the meantime... pics? 

 

Or maybe arriving over here in little old Blighty some time soon as well. You know, what with Britain being closer to Spain than Canada is.

 

Actually.....  ironically the medieval village of Canada is a short distance from where I live. Yes, there's a village in England called Canada and it's been around since the time of Willaim the Conqueror in the 11th century.

^^ this amuses me greatly.

 

The KS has a comment that they haven't gotten all boxes out the door; they sent the easiest to pack first, and will be done shipping this week. Kinda surprises me that it is taking this long since starting to get everything out the door, considering it is a 635 backer KS, not multiple thousand. Probably means that mine will be a bit longer. Oh well. It'll get here eventually.

For the US backers, what shipping company did they use so I can keep an eye out in the right places?

Mine was shipped DHL.  Received notice on a Thursday.  Package was delivered on a Monday. 

 

Ahh bugger I hope it isn't DHL in Canada. DHL can mess things up badly here.

Mine came today USPS with no notice.. Backerkit is still in the 'locked' stage

 

The extra Zhoor I ordered came packaged, but the free one is just in a zip lock.  the plinth badge i ordered for Irina was just tossed in the box and came broken so I'll need to email them.

That's unfortunate. They do have good CS, but it is annoying for a long distance order. Also surprising since they are taking their time on packaging.

Seems they started with Singles, then doubles, etc.  I ordered five so I'm wondering where I'm at in the shipping queue.  Also hoping that it show up in better shape than the Steampunk one.  Everything was crammed into a plastic baggie for shipping which was ripped in transit resulting in all the 35mm figures falling out somewhere along the line.  They shipped replacements but it was still annoying. Especially since they mentioned they were going to file a claim, so I held off on opening anything or getting rid of the packing for six months after I received the figures.  After that long, and no response from the, I shrugged and finally got to play with my toys.  Communication is definitely NOT their strong suite.

I'm at four figures plus the freebie, so I suspect I'm back in line somewhere as well. Maybe I'll get a mini-Christmas sometime soon.

The resin minis were in blister packs in my package, and the metals were in zip-lock bags.   

Bases(for the metal) were loose in the box. 

 

I was in at the 'Blind Justice' (2 resin minis) level, for Keera and Lisbeth, and added Loreen in the PM afterwards.

After thinking about this for a bit, I wonder whether Scale75 is casting in-house and sending out rewards as the figures are cast. It would make the slow rate of fulfillment understandable, especially if they have limited resin-casting staff (and mold-cutting staff, since they would need to replace molds several times during the casting process).

This is an interesting thought.  I don't remember rewards trickling like this on previous campaigns, so I wonder if something changed.  Though to be honest, I usually tune out once I have received my shipment.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      Found this on kickstarter, seems a very useful handle, the idea of the ring is super and  I find that the way it turn upside-down it's brilliant!

      Maybe the shipping for EU it's a bit too hight considering it ship from UK... but at least it is not overpriced. 

      I'm in for the early basic :)

       Morana, 75 mm Morana was once a champion of the sacred order of the Radiant Fist. During a mission, the dark wizard Shahrivar cast a curse over her and traped her soul in a gem. Since then his body has become the wizard´s tool, bringing death and disease wherever she goes.
       Akanksha, 75 mm Heiress to the throne of Shin Kingdom was always known for her diplomatic skills and her sword mastery. In one of her many diplomatic meetings, she received as a gift a pendant in the shape of a heart and, since then, there has been no desire which have refused or a lover that have rejected. It must be said that the tensions between the neighbouring kingdoms are more relaxed than ever.
         Najwa, 75 mm  At another time, Najwa was the high priestess in the Sharated Temple. The Great Tremorrevealed an ancient buried room in the depths of the temple that contained writings from a thousand years ago. She was the first to study them and learned dark and forbidden knowledge which poisoned her body and soul. The high wizard Lucianus tried to save her but it was too late, she destroyed the temple and was lost in the night.
      Here you can see a comparative image of the projected height for the miniatures in both versions. Has you can see, the 75 mm scale will offer an excellent miniature for your shelf and the 32 mm scale will fit in any boardgame and wargames that you can imagine.
          In adition, some parts have been changed from the 75 mm scale to the 32 mm scale to avoid too small details and give the best painting experience.
      Here you can see the reward levels offered in this campaign. You can find the full information about every offer in the reward list of the campaign and, if you have any doubt, don´t hesitate to ask.
                  Here you can see the stretch goals that are planned for this campaign and they correspond to new extra characters that will be fully revealed during the campaign. When we reach the corresponding objective, their miniatures in both versions will be added to the available Add-Ons.  All those who opt for the Fallen Maidens reward may access to a special offer of these characters.
      Although only tree Strech goals are scheduled, I would add new characters in case the campaign reached higher goals. If this happens I will consider your suggestions to create new characters that captivate you.
      The add-ons are additional items you may be interested in adding to the rewards that correspond to your pledge level. To include an add-on, simply add its specified value in € to the amount of your pledge.
      When the campaign ends you will receive the backer survey where you will be able to specify which add-ons you want to include.
         Here you will find the available fantasy football products. If you missed the Asgard´s Sons campaign, this is your chance to get them and obtain exclusive characters.
        All shipping will be delivered by ordinary postal mail. How is it possible that there is a great disparity in the size of the packages, the shipping costs will be calculated according to each order to be fair. When the campaign ends and once the survey is done, the backers will be contacted to collect the shipping costs through Paypal just before sending each order. We can not ship to PO Boxes.
      If you come to Pamplona to pick up your order you will save these expenses and we can also meet in person!
      So you can get an idea of how much these costs will be, here you have a list of the estimated value of the shipments.
      I will do my best to keep these cost to the minimum possible. The shipping is planned to begin in March 2020. However, depending on the production requirements, it might change. 
      For those who opt for the Add-Ons level, it is possible that they receive their rewards sooner, It will depend if I have already available what they want to purchase or it must be manufactured.
      Further information will be posted on the updates of this project. 
      The master model of every miniature will be printed by 3DA Impresiones, a company that specializes in prototype.
      The resin miniatures will be manufactured by GRX Creations known by his high quality.
      Risks and challenges
      All designs are not a final product and can suffer changes during the manufacturing process. 
      Due to production requirements, the planned date to begin the shipping process might be changed due to the amount of the pieces needed and other factors out of my control. However, I will keep you updated on any changes.
      If you do not accept the terms of the campaign, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.
