We need help turning these lovely sculpts into a pewter miniatures. This line features many classic creatures from the Cthulhu Mythos.
LAST 24 hours update:
We just received in from the sculptor a Spawn of Yog and 2 new Spawn of Cthulhu. All 3 of these are 20mm high. You can add any one of them to your KickStarter for a $4 increase to your pledge. For $11 you can add all 3.
We also have an Avatar of Shub that will be cast up. He's a big guy at around 40mm to his shoulders. You can add him to any pledge level for $12.
Want to get all 4 added to your pledge level ... just increase your pledge by $20 and we'll add all 4 to your pledge.
In addition with the addition of one big guy and 3 little guys ... for you fantasy football gamers out there we added a $100 level for you to have a 14 figure Cthulhu Ogre team. 2 of each of the 4 Spawn figures (Yog + the 3 Cthulhu Spawn (one was previous offered in Stretch Reward #1)) and one each of these 6 big different big guys: Yog-Sothoth, Shub-Niggurath, Elder Thing, Dagon, Avatar of Yog and Avatar of Shub.
Impact! Miniatures has traditionally produced fantasy sports miniatures and we are looking to widen our range. We also have a program to help amateur sculptors build a portfolio, have their works produced and receive payments based upon how successful their miniatures sell. When we were approached by a talented, amateur sculptor from Spain with these miniatures we knew we had to work to get them produced and into the community's hands! The cost of producing a full range, rather than just a miniature or two here and there, is daunting and so we've come the community looking for some help. We're seeking some capital to help defer the costs of master moulding, production moulding and having them cast up. If these are successful, the sculptor has 15 MORE miniatures he'd like to make including Hydra, Cthonian, Mi-Go, Azathoth, Tsathoggua, Yig, Yith and more!
STRETCH REWARD #2 - $13000
Stretch Reward #2 is that everyone pledging $100 or more will receive 3 FREE miniatures of their choice from either Group #1 or the Stretch Goal #1 Group and will recieve a set of 2 of the Cthulhu dice (your choice of the 4 colors). This stretch goal represents the actual cost for us to have this line of figures made so if we reach this goal we really want to give everyone some free items to thank you for your support!
STRETCH REWARD #1 - $6000 - REACHED!
Stretch Reward #1 is a free miniature from the Stretch Goal #1 Group to everyone who has pledged $100 or more.
We are pleased to announce that we've worked with Chessex to create a custom d6 for the Kickstarter. They are 16mm d6 with the Necronomicon logo on the "6" facing. The colors available are:
Gemini Black-Green w/gold (top left); Gemini Green-Purple w/gold (top right); Gemini Gold-Green w/white (bottom left); Vortex Green w/gold (bottom right). You can add $4 to your pledge to get 2 dice of your choice.
After looking at the various sizes of the miniatures we decided to offer them in four "bands" which are based on cost of production and future MSRP. These costs include the weight of the metal and the number of pieces the miniature is made of. We also added two other reward levels for those that would like the package set of HP Lovecraft and Cthulhu and for backers that would just like one of each miniature. All reward levels include the price of worldwide shipping.
How to Determine Your Pledge Total
Pledge for any level that sounds good to you. You can then add additional figures to your pledge from any of the 15 below. Just add in an amount for the Group the figures is in (no extra shipping is needed to be added for any add-on miniatures!)
Stretch Goal #1 Group: $5 each
Group #1: $5 each
Group #2: $8 each
Group #3: $12 each
Group #4: $18 each
For example, if you want one miniature from Group #2 and Group #4, you would pledge $30 at either the OUTER THINGS or GREAT OLD ONES level. As another example, assume you want one miniature from Group #1, two from Group #3 and one from Group #4. You would pledge $51 at any of the three levels that includes one the figures you want (for example at the OUTER THINGS it would be the $16 level + $5 for Group #1 + $12 for an extra Group #2 figure + $18 for the Group #4 level).
