As with my three previous Kickstarter projects, the purpose of this one is to fund a large print run of posters so that the cost per poster will be affordable. This ship depicted on the poster is supported with detailed electronic documents, additional digital art, and (for those interested) a custom miniature. The rewards are detailed below.

 Thank you for taking the time to look over this project. I hope that this ship, and the whole armada, may serve you well!

Risks and challenges

For the Origins convention I have already created a handful of copies of the poster and miniature, so I know the quality of the end product. Casting a three part miniature takes longer than a single ship, but I will get an early start on the process. The pieces fit together well and a dab of super glue works wonderfully to make things solid.

I have all of my shipping materials on hand and will have the posters ready to mail within a week of the campaign ending. The "Special Order" pledge is new this time around. My hope is that keeping the exceptions isolated will stream line the process and prevent possible errors.

    <<< SPECIAL ORDER >>> This is EXACTLY the same as the $50 pledge below except that you can pledge less than $50. I made a mistake in setting the "default" pledge to $50 but I can't change it now that we've launched. Use this one for Special Orders less than $50. Use either one for larger Special Orders. Sorry for the confusion!
