Secret Weapon Miniatures Pre Painted Bases Kickstarter Relaunch

Recommended Posts

A message from Secret Weapon:

 

Big news time everyone!

As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.

BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.

That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.

So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:

1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.

2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.

3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options

Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.

There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

Obvious question due to paints being included in things: when is expected fulfillment?  I have to ask, because paint and Canadian winters really do not mix well. 

 

Additional question: for the $200 tier, is that a full pigment + fixer set, or just the pigments? ^_^

 

Canadian friendly shipping?

At the $200 pledge, you will receive the Tire Black Trio and the Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange pigments. No fixative. :) Fulfillment is expected January of 2021. Canadian orders will be shipping from the US, so you'll have to pay any duties or taxes that would normally apply.

Hope that helps!

Jess

I also wanted to address a question I had read before on the last thread regarding how much texture the bases already had. I took some time this weekend to play around and do some spot repainting, and full repainting. Hope this helps as well!

Will there be lower priced points of entry as well as the $50 minimum point spelled out there?

Hi Disciple of Sakura. $50 will be our lowest price point for this Kickstarter relaunch.

Glad to see it's live again.  How's support for 70mm round bases looking, due to the Silhouette 8 miniature Infinity has?  (Maghariba Guard)

I like all of them...If forced to pick one though, for what I would use them for, it would be the top right.

 

having said that, it looks like I probably won't be able to support this one, AUD crashing against the USD makes it harder to find the funds

Nice!

 

Maybe upper right. That's generic enough for western, but also modern day model homes (eg. a museum). Lower left might be better for western and Lovecraft? Upper left is too dark for me.

 

@ratsmitglied : Bases should hit retail (and the SWM online store), so hopefully that will work for you when the bases come out!

 

BTW, SWM is located in Sacramento, CA, which is under lockdown. Expect orders for current stock to be delayed. Staff on (temporary) layoff. https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=secret weapon miniatures&epa=SEARCH_BOX

WhiteWulfe - We do not currently have plans to release a 70mm base.

That's a pity to hear, given one of the factions included in the Red Veil set uses said Silhouette 8 murderscorpion...  It would be nice to have a matching set. 

 

How many unique designs for each?  More specifically, the 25mm bases, since some Infinity forces can have a decent amount of minis on the table even for a 300/6 game. 

 

Will there be an option to add other Secret Weapon items in there, such as filling out the bonus pigments to the full range Secret Weapon offers?  Gotta ask because I suspect shipping even just a few sets of bases will wind up being rather expensive for international orders. (and for some reason, the full pigment set never came back on the Secret Weapon site, only a few combinations did)

Each design in a set will be unique, so a pack 10 25mm bases won't have duplicates. I don't know exactly how many designs for 25mm bases there are.

We have thought about add ons of other Secret Weapon products. What does everyone think? Pigments, paint sets? Your input is invaluable!

Pigments would be interesting to me, but given the planned January fulfilment I know I'd be avoiding paints.

 

How long will the pledge manager be open for after the Kickstarter?  Will one be able to add in additional funds by chance? ^_^

Paints in January, yeah, not a great idea in Maine, either.

 

Maybe a delayed delivery option for people with paints?

 

I like all the wood floors. Maybe favoring both on the right.

 

If I were to go in for anything, it's the wood patterns, they are a lot harder to paint than stones of any sort, at least if you want a decent grain.

      Story
      Welcome to our newest Kickstarter! You'll notice this one is a little different. In this Kickstarter we are offering the STL Files of some of our classic models for you to print on your home 3D printers. These files, created and designed by John Bear Ross, offer tons of combinations and entrance into an amazing realm of sci-fi models. These models come scaled in 15mm AND 28mm!
      Now, keep in mind, these are for personal use, not for commercial or resale. We own the copyrights and designs but for the sake of this Kickstarter, we are allowing the files to go to you, our loyal supporters.
      So why are we doing this Kickstarter?
      Short answer…We are raising funds to increase our in-house printing capabilities. This will allow us to develop more detailed models, models in larger scales, and bring out even more product lines. Rebel Minis is growing and we want you guys to be part of it.
      But we can’t do it without you, so please consider pledging, and spreading the word!
      Thank you,
      Mike and JBR
      The Reward
      We have only one. ALL the files listed to be available for one pledged amount.  You get the files to everything you see scaled in both 15mm and 28mm.
      Your pledge of $40 gets the whole kit n’ caboodle.  Once again, this is for PERSONAL USE! You do not have permission to distribute, copy or sell the files. *C'mon man, you know that ain’t cool!*
      Stretch Goals
      If we reach our goals, we will unlock stretch goals. These files will be added to the reward and download at the same time.
      Delivery
      After the Kickstarter ends, and if it is successful, you will get a survey to confirm your email. Later, when they are ready, we will email you the links for download.
      The Files
      Look at all these Glorious Files, they can be yours!
      Can I print the weapons and vehicles on FDM and Resin Printers? 
      Yes, everything should be printable on both types of printers found in common use. Most of our prints are optimized for desktop resin printers like the Anycubic Photon or the Elegoo Mars, but FDM should be able to support most builds. If we encounter files that are too large for resin printers, we will happily go back and supply sliced and optimized files to be printed in smaller chunks
