The goal of this Kickstarter campaign is to fund an original print run of posters and custom cast miniatures for the starship Mourning Wolf. 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

This is the sixth poster/miniature Kickstarter I’ve run and I feel like I have the process down pretty well. The poster images are done and already at the printer. They’ve been great to work with in the past and I feel confident that they will deliver again. They’re also just a couple hours away so I can always drive up there if needed.

This time around I got some professional help with making the miniatures. That frees up a lot of my time, but also means that I don't have my usual amount of control over the process. Since this is the first time that I haven't done it all myself, there may be some bugs to work out. So far though, I really like what I've seen!

Two posters and a miniature (plus a shipping tube) pushes the weight limit for First Class USPS shipping. This means that I might end up shipping some miniatures separately. The risk is extra time and expense on my end of things.

Lastly, rising production and shipping costs forced me to increase the price of posters by a couple of dollars - which may turn away some backers. Though I hated to break the even $20 mark, I did lower the price of miniatures; so at least the upper pledge levels avoided an increase.

The Digital Reward is higher this time because both issues are "oversized" and very recent releases. With the cost of the digital poster image included it is still over 50% off retail. Future Digital Rewards prices will likely be more in line with previous campaigns. It is, of course, still free with any of the physical reward levels.
