This campaign will create a pair of posters - which map out a medium size space station - and a matching miniature. Digital documents detailing the station are included at every pledge level.
Shipping within the US in included in the price. International orders will have $10 added for the miniature pledge level or $20 for pledges levels including posters. Rewards will be shipped using USPS first class mail from Pittsburgh, USA.
The Crucible-class stations are designed to forge raw materials into finished goods. Some are used as industrial ore processing stations or gas mines. Others are employed as military academies or civilian training facilities - transforming raw recruits into ready professionals. Still others may process nothing but wealth and power as corporate outposts or crime syndicate headquarters. These stations have room for a hundred personnel and boast a variety of facilities to suit a wide range of duties.
The deckplans take up 2 complete posters – that’s four sides: one for the hub and three laid end to end to form the ring. The maps have a 1-inch grid built into the floor and are scaled for use with miniatures at approximately1 inch = 5 feet. They are mailed rolled in a sturdy cardboard tube.
The miniature is cast resin modeled from a highly detailed 3D print. It is unpainted and includes a clear acrylic base. As with all of new miniatures, this one was cast by Trollforged Miniatures using their professional equipment and proprietary formula. This resin is very durable and holds paint well.
The digital documentation is from the most recent issue of the 0 hr Armada Codex product line and a download is included at every pledge level. Inside you will find details about the station’s history and components, as well as a description of the interior areas and a system independent stat block. Giant images of the posters are also included for display on screen or via projector for high-tech gaming.
If you would like additional miniatures or poster sets, manually increase your pledge accordingly. When I send out the surveys at the end of the campaign you can specify what the extra money is for and I'll bundle everything together. To add a Crucible poster set to any pledge level, manually increase your pledge by $30. To add a Crucible miniature, increase your pledge by $10. International orders should end up paying $10 total shipping for miniature-only orders, and $20 total shipping for anything else.
If you would like to order posters or miniatures from my previous campaigns, please visit my website ( 0-hr.com/Shop ). You can order directly there; or you can check the prices, increase your pledge, and let me know the details in your survey.
As a thank you to everyone for supporting this campaign, I will create a new rendered image of a Crucible-class station for every $1000 by which we exceed the funding goal. These high-rez images will be included with the digital reward files exclusively for backers.
Risks and challenges
I have run several poster & miniature campaigns just like this one and all have been successful. I create the miniatures before the campaign and order the posters as soon as the funding goal is hit. This makes for the fastest possible delivery once the campaign is complete. The main risk is that demand may exceed initial supplies, causing a delay in delivery while new materials are acquired. Because this is a 2 poster set the initial investment and funding goal are higher than normal. This means that the print order might not be placed until later in the campaign which, given the two week print time, means that shipping to backers may take a few days longer to commence.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
