About this project

The goal of this ultra-fast campaign is to print an original poster, cast a fleet of matching miniatures, and get them into your hands before Halloween. Digital documents and supporting images will be provided to fully detail the ships and their interiors.   

Free U.S. shipping. International adds $12 for one item or $24 for the combo (because international postage doubles after 8 ounces). Rewards will be shipped using USPS first class mail from Pittsburgh, PA.

The deck plans are provided as a full color, 24x36 inch, double-sided poster. They are drawn to a 1 inch equals 5 ft scale and have a 1-inch grid built into the floor – perfect for Starfinder and d20 RPGs. Note that the price of posters and miniatures have been reduced from previous campaigns. Though production costs have remained the same, my hope is that these new prices will get the ships onto new tables and grow our community over time. So please spread the word and bring more people on board if you can!

The matching miniature was created as a digital model, 3D printed at the highest resolution, and made into a mold. From that, Trollforged Miniatures spun out the ships using their proprietary resin and professional techniques. The result is a highly detailed miniature, approximately 2inches long, ready to paint and play (miniatures are sold unpainted). A hexagonal 1-inch, clear acrylic flight stand is included.

Mercury is from issue #8 of "Future Armada". Every pledge level includes a digital copy of this issue, which details the interior and presents sample stats for the ship and crew. It also includes a write up on the Remora boarding craft and Valkyrn interceptor. Maps are provided on printable pages in both color and black and white. The digital reward also includes giant images of the poster for use online or via projector.

Talarion is a brand new design and will be featured in an upcoming chapter of the 0-hr "Armada Codex" devoted to refits of classic designs. A preview of the chapter will be included, as will Starfinder stat sheets for both Mercury and Talarion.

If you would like to order multiple copies of the poster or miniature 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. If you have pledged for the $26 combo, then a second Kintaro poster is $17 and additional miniatures are $6. Otherwise posters are $20 and miniatures are $9. International orders only pay shipping once ($12 for just miniatures, $24 for posters or mixed orders.).

If you would like to order merchandise from my previous campaigns, please visit my website ( 0-hr.com ). You can order directly there, or check the prices and then increase your pledge here and let me know the details in the survey at the end of the campaign. 

As a thank you to everyone for supporting the campaign, I will create a new rendered image of Mercury or Talarion when we hit $3000, $4000, etc.. These 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.
