The goal of this project is to print an original starship deckplan poster, cast a fleet of matching miniatures, and get them to you before the end of September. Links to digital documents will be provided to fully detail the ships and their interiors. Two complete versions of the ship are included - one on each side of the poster.
Lakota is a Tomahawk-class courier. At 195 feet long, the three-deck ship has a sizable hold suitable for either cargo or craft. The main deck has an additional bay for a ground car or small fighter. Lakota is an excellent ship for a group of up to seven whether they are hauling cargo, exploring beyond the civilized worlds, or running dangerous missions. The Arikara variant is a salvaged hull used by marauders and pirates. It has barracks for a dozen raiders, a breaching bore for hostile takeovers, and a detachable upper deck that can serve as a runabout.
US Shipping is $6 for all pledge levels.
International shipping is $15 for single items and $24 for multiple items ($10 and $16 for Canada). Rewards will be shipped using USPS first class mail from Pittsburgh.
The centerpiece of the campaign is a 24x36 inch, two-sided, full-color poster featuring complete deckplans for the armed courier “Lakota” on one side and the infamous Arikara marauder on the back. The maps are scaled at 1 inch = 5 feet and have a 1-inch grid built into the floor. The are shipped rolled rather than folded.
The custom miniature was created as a digital model, 3D printed at the highest resolution, and made into a mold to cast a fleet of resin ships. The result is a highly detailed miniature ready to paint and play (miniatures are sold unpainted). A hexagon-shaped, 1-inch, clear acrylic flight stand is included. Note that the wings are separate pieces. They can be glued on for Lakota or left off for the Arikara variant.
Lakota is from the digital Future Armada product line, issue number 15. Arikara is from the upcoming"refit" issue of Armada Codex. Those issues are included at all pledge levels; other issues can be found at RPGNow & DriveThruRPG. The set of PDF documents includes room by room descriptions and suggested statistics for the ships, as well as deckplans broken into printable pages. Additional renderings are included as are huge digital images of the poster for use online or with a projector. Before the end of the campaign, Starfinder statistics for Lakota & Arikara will be provided for free on my Port Zero page.
If you want to add any posters or miniatures to your order, use the “Manage Pledge” button in the upper right (or mouse-over your reward) to manually increase your pledge. The end-of-campaign survey will let you specify what any extra money is for and I’ll bundle everything together. The available posters, ships, and prices can all be found on my Zero Hour Shop page ( http://0-hr.com/Shop ). If you have pledged for the $26 combo, then a second Lakota poster is $17 and additional Lakota miniatures are $6. Otherwise posters are $20 and miniatures are $9. With add-ons, total shipping is $6 / $16 / $24 for the US / Canada / the rest of the world.
As a small token of my appreciation, I will create an original 3D rendering or image of these ships for every $1000 by which the goal is exceeded. These images will be included with the digital reward files exclusively for backers.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this campaign - I hope that you'll join with us to make this dream a reality!
Risks and challenges
The map images and miniatures are already made, so the only real risk is that shipping could be delayed for some reason. I am personally handling the shipping so I can ensure that it will be my highest priority when the campaign ends. If demand exceeds my initial estimates, there could be a delay while more materials are produced, but this would not be more than a couple of weeks at most.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
