About

A lone light is on over the table. The players are getting their drinks, snacks, and dice ready as the GM rifles through her notes once more. Last week's map has been rolled out. Michael grabs his phone to look at the picture he took and the end of the last session so you can all get your miniatures in the right spot. Except this time is different. This time you have a new miniature, one that actually represents your character's race. As your compatriots drag out their pre-colored, plastic humans and elves you smile. Pulling out the half-orc you've been using to represent your Netherstorm character, you  flick it across the room. In the same fluid motion, you set your new miniature down on the table. A four-armed, metal monster. He has been cast. You have painted him. And now, he is ready for blood. The room goes silent with awe.

When we created Netherstorm, we wanted to really show people who we are and how we game. Part of that was coming up with our own, non-standard player races. It was a lot of fun creating, and later playing, characters that weren't the same old elf, dwarf, or half-whatever, however there was a downside. No minis! Maybe you're the GM who likes a good, meticulously drawn map.  Maybe you're a player who enjoys finding the perfect likeness of their character, painting it exactly so, and showing it off on the hexagonal battlefield. The bottom line is, miniatures are awesome. But when you have a unique race, miniatures that encapsulate your character are thin on the ground. Finally, we are making our own minis for use with Netherstorm, as well as other systems. We are starting with our four-armed warrior race, the Kentrona. These desert-born brutes boast many great traits, whether as an impressive PC, an NPC, or a monster for the second greatest role-playing game and other systems. 

Risks and challenges

The largest obstacle we face is getting enough funding to get the product made. That said, the people we work with are very good at what they do, and they are highly professional. We have teamed with Dark Platypus, a company with years of miniature design and production experience, to produce these miniatures. The first one speaks for itself. They have given us quotes on how much time they need from the moment we say "go", and then we added on top of that. So if something goes wrong, we should still be able to ship at the proper time. We will continually update when we hit milestones (artwork done, 3D modeling done, etc.) so you know where we are at in the process. (Note: if we hit stretch goals, delivery time may change for the sake of shipping everything at once.)

    Max Level

    If you are so hardcore that you would fully fund this project, letting us get straight into stretch goals, we will fly you out for a weekend of gaming. We'll hit local gaming havens, meet people in Michigan's tabletop gaming industry, and most importantly... We. Will. Game. Michigan has an embarrassment of riches concerning food and beverage, so the game time grub will be pretty amazing too. Not to mention, all the stuff from the previous perk levels.
