First, let me thank everyone who made my first campaign (the Clydesdale-class transport) such a success!  As with that project, the purpose of the campaign is to fund a large print run of this poster so that the cost per poster will be reasonable. The ships depicted are supported by detailed electronic documents and, for those who are interested, a custom starship miniature. All of 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

Overall, things went very well with my first Kickstarter campaign and so I plan to do all of the good things the same way this time around. I was very happy with the poster printing company and the shipping tube supplier. The only major change this time is that I am going to use traditional resin cast miniatures rather than 3D printed miniatures. With the Clydesdale run there were some issues with reliability and durability that I think can be avoided by doing things the old fashioned way. It's a bit more work on my end but the result will be a solid, and more affordable, miniature. I am also looking into making stands for the ships, but am not 100% certain if that is going to work out or not.
