The goal of this (my fifth) Kickstarter campaign is to fund an original print run of posters, and cover the cost of miniature-making materials, for the Gryphon/Phoenix starship design. The maps on the posters are supported by detailed electronic documents and additional rendered images. The rewards are described below.

Thank you for considering this project. If you want to learn more about the Armada, or if you would like to order extras, or get posters and miniatures from my previous Kickstarter campaigns, please visit  http://0-hr.com 

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter number four (Cygnus) ran into a couple of snags because of the complicated "Special Order" options. The 3-part miniatures also took a long time to cast and clean. To avoid the first problem I have set up a simple shop on my website ( 0-hr.com ) where people can place custom orders for posters and miniatures. The Gryphon ship design is well suited for casting. It is a single piece and doesn't have a lot of nooks and crannies, so casting the miniatures will be straight-forward.

My printing company has been a real pleasure to work with, but there is always the possibility that something will be delayed, or may have to be reprinted once I see a physical proof. To minimize the impact of such an event, I will order the posters as early as possible - the goal being to get the posters, miniatures, and shipping tubes ready to go the second the campaign ends and I get address information returned from the majority of backers. I fully expect to ship these out within a week or two of the end of the campaign. Domestic customers can expect to have these in plenty of time for the holidays (and I think they'd make a great gift :).
