Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, three projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive. Thanks to the support through Kickstarter, 17 miniatures have been made available.

The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Clansmen of Caer Loch. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).

You can also pick up the other Corvus Corax minis from previous projects as add ons


I've backed the previous projects and been very happy with the results

Pretty cool, but seems a bit pricey for what they are.

Thanks! They are pretty cool, indeed. But I am not sure Joaquin Palacios is able to sculpt something that isn't cool. :D I guess the price depends on what you compare with. If we make a fast comparison with some other resin miniatures we might get a fair idea. These are just a few other companies that are ontop of my mind. There are obviously a lot more. The figures are more pricey than metal and plastic, but lower than comparable other resin figures of equal size. But yeah, only saying that things should be considered in perspective. :)

 

Corvus Corax kickstarter: ~$12 (single and down to ~$7,50 for several)

Games Workshop: $17-25

Kingdom Death: $25

Infamy Miniatures: $17

Demented Games/Twisted: $20

Mierce Miniatures: $18

Arena Rex: $19

Purgatory: $17

Infinity Miniatures (metal): $12-13

I backed the previous project that was cancelled, with these Scot guys and an other clan of Native Americans.

 

I was only interested by the other clan, so I won’t be backing this time.

Funded! And stretch goal #1

Posted by Grefven (Creator)
 

Thanks everyone for the great support. While I had hoped for this project to be successful, I didnt expect it to go this fast. Hopefully, we'll be able to reach one or two stretch goals before the project is over.

Stretch goal #1 - Skult

Skult is a member of the Clansmen of Caer Loch. He will be added for free to anyone who has pledged for the "Pariah" pledge level. So once this goal is reached, the deal will be all the sweeter. Skult has been sculpted by Pedro Fernandez Ramos.

Stretch goal #2 has also been reached, and everyone who joined in at the Pariah pledge level will now receive Selkie for free, bumping the group up to six miniatures included!

Stretch goal #3 will see the first add-on, which will not be a member of the Clansmen, but of the Outcasts of Dur Makeb. If we reach stretch goal #3, Cervus will be available as an add-on. Cervus has been sculpted by Roberto Chaudon.

Stretch goal #4 Posted by Grefven (Creator)

 

Stretch goal #3 has been reached, unlocking Cervus as an add-on. Cervus is a member of the Outcasts of Dur Makeb, and has been sculpted by Roberto Chaudon. Lets just hope that no one drops, or lowers, any pledges now so the total drops below the goal! :)

The next stretch goal, if reached, is another free miniature included in all Pariah pledges, bumping the package up to 8 miniatures. This is an alternate pose of Aktra, a member of the Exiles of the Tetsu Clan, sculpted by Pedro Fernandez Ramos. This version of Aktra is a Kickstarter exclusive miniature and will only be available through Kickstarter, and in a limited amount.

Thanks mate. :) I hope a couple more also jumps onboard before the end of the project. :)

Stretch goal #4 has been reached, meaning that this Kickstarter-exclusive version of Aktra is added to all Pariah-pledges for free (well, as long as the total doesnt drop down below the goal). The Pariah-pledge will consist out of 7 miniatures. An already good value has become even better!

If we manage to reach Stretch goal #5, Surtr will be made available as an add-on. Surtr is a member of the Nomads, and would increase their amount a bit. Hopefully, we could potentially bolster their numbers a bit more during the campaign, making this faction being able to compete with the others!

Stretch goal #5 has been reached, allowing Surtr to be claimed as an add-on. Surtr is a member of the Nomads, a faction that need some serious reinforcement to bring their strength up to level with the other factios. Surtr is a true colossus on the battlefield!

We've reached stretch goal #6, which means that Aktra "standard miniature" is included in all Pariah pledges. This is, of course, depending of that the project does not see too many failed pledges in the end, that would drop the total down below the goal!

Congrats on a successful campaign!  I will need to add one unlocked model still.  Poor me.  :-)

Thanks for the support everyone who pitched in! :) Now I am just waiting to see how many pledges will fail to collect. Thus far, its a fair bit more than 10%. I hope it clears up a bit before the 2 weeks deadline as it could affect the "final stretchgoal".

      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.

      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.
