Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.

These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.

We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.

This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

I've got one of their busts. Really beautifully produced. No air bubbles. The pieces went together perfectly. I'm definitely interested to see where they go with a celtic Arthurian concept.

I am curious about it, but the goblin I just finished from Big Child Creatives was a pretty poor cast. Resin bubble+blob on the nose, big crack in the ankle, more mold slip than expected for cost, and packaged such that an ear broke off. Other Vancouver painters got good casts though. I suspect they're probably Usually Good, but need to do better quality assurance checks.

After the first few (reasonably priced) pledge levels one can't help the feeling they just got greedy. Three thousand euro pledge level anyone? Fifteen hundred? Nine hundred? Hmm.....

 

Now to find out which figures are Standard and which are Exclusive. Did I see a Sir Bercilak (The Green Knight) sculpt briefly during the campaign video? I did. I'm not sure I like this version very much. No axe. No terrifying face.

 

There's not a lot of clarity as to which figures are available under the Squire pledge as opposed to the Adventurer pledge level. I'm in for a single Standard figure for now because there's a pledge manager promised. That being said their sir Bercilak sculpt, while not the best way I'd like to imagine sir Bercilak,  would easily fit into some kind of barbarian army on the tabletop as some kind of giant.

 

It would appear that one of the stretch goals is an alternate weapon for the Green Knight so hopefully that's his trusty axe.

Hmm or Pelinor and the questing beast

Or Yvain, the Knight of the Lion? They could do something crazy and have him riding his boon companion instead of having it be by his side.

So I'm currently at $150 total, but likely to jump up to $250 total and switch to the Knight Errant pledge..  I know I already want Galahad, the Green Knight and Uther, it looks like Guinevere will be unlocked before too long, so as long as I am  buying 3 standard ones and the KS exclusive, it doesn't make any sense to not get the 4th regular one for free. which will probably be Mordred or Merlin.

I'm currently at 50 trying to work out if I can go up to 100 for Galahad then add 50 for sir Kay or the Green Knight in the pledge manager. I liked sir Kay's moustache (very Sturm Brightblade, Knight of Huma) but the way that he's been painted without one so convincingly gives me concern that the moustache detail might not be very refined.

      Help a small bakeshop survive these COVID days....
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sweet-alfas-cookbook/x/10803452#/
       
      Small Town Family Bake Shop at a Critical Point
      Sweet Alfas Bake Shop & Kitchen has been serving the Elizabeth, Parker & Aurora communities for 3 years. Melissa & Luigi Casaretto’s  journey began in 2012 as a fundraiser selling Peruvian Alfajores for their daughter’s dance event. It eventually flourished into a successful online cookie bakery. In 2017 they bought the kitchen they used to rent in Elizabeth, Colorado and Sweet Alfas was finally a brick and mortar shop.

      In 2020, the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic started to take shape and as early as February we started to see our sales dipping. We improvised and started serving curbside and specialty meals to survive. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to save the bake shop and kitchen after all. Our business survives primarily on our wholesale efforts and our biggest accounts had to cut their orders by 50%. After reviewing our options we had no choice but to temporarily close and halt our 5 person operation.

      After mulling over what to do next, we decided we were not giving up without a fight. In order to raise funds we are opening our kitchen publicly to the world in the shape of a bakery and kitchen cookbook(as well as other unique perks we are offering).  All of our secrets, techniques and ideas will now be available in your own home. With your help we can catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through. 
      In 2019 our community stepped up and helped us fund a new mixer when we were struggling. While we appreciated the community effort and love our community we have always wanted to give back. So instead of asking for handouts, we are asking you to help us fund a 100 page cookbook with detailed recipes and photography. 
      What We Need & What You Get
      By purchasing our cookbook you can help us catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through with some expansion of our kitchen, bakery and staff.

      You’ll notice we have some tiered packages. We are not only going to offer our cookbook, we are going to include shirts, hoodies, master class videos and gift cards.

      Our goal is $20,000 which is what we were asking for from the SBA. At this time we’ve received very little confirmation from the SBA about our loan. So instead of asking for forgivable money, we want to fund a cookbook for our most loyal customers and supporters. We would rather earn it and show you some love back.
      The Impact
      We have always wanted to make a cookbook and now this opportunity has forced our hand. So on the positive side, we see a win/win situation. We can provide something special globally and save our local bakery, maintain our wholesale accounts in Parker and Aurora, keep our employees and remain in Elizabeth, CO.
      Many of our customers across the US can not try some of our more traditional baked goods because it’s expensive to ship them. So this gives everyone a chance to try our baked goods.  They say restaurants don’t survive after a year of being in business. We’ve survived 3 years and were finally making the right strides.  We’re gonna be here for a very long time and we may even continue pressing cookbooks in the future. Risks & Challenges
      This will not be a short order(pun intended). We will have a long road ahead of us and we are still not in the clear from everything happening globally during this pandemic.
      We will use the funds to catch up and reinvent ourselves(a 3rd time) in order to adjust to the "new normal" of Covid-19. We are hoping to add a fryer and overhead extinguishing system to provide some fried goods, donuts and churros.  We will need to negotiate with debt collectors, property managers and our accounts. We will need to heavily market this cookbook and our bakery.  Melissa and I both come from extremely competitive marketing and sales backgrounds in the tech industry. We are capable of overcoming these hurdles and getting Sweet Alfas back on the map.  Other Ways You Can Help
      We are all in a crisis, not just businesses. Many people are out of work, struggling to pay their bills. We understand and wish the best for you and your families. There are non-monetary ways to help us out.
      Tell your siblings, parents, best friends and coworkers about this campaign. You can share our campaign on facebook and more using the Indiegogo share tools!

      Unfortunately, all rewards are physical/US Only right now.
      Also, they've chosen 'Flexible funding', but since they're at 45% already, with 29 days left, they have a decent chance of making it. 
       
      Me?
      I'm in it for $5(no perk pledge) because they make cookies...

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).
