Skulls and Bones campaign.

With this campaign I'm aiming to add some great new products to the Toad King Castings range. The main item for the campaign is the Skull and Bones sheet. I already produce a Bag of 100+ resin skulls which is popular with gamers wanting to add skulls to their bases. This new product also gives modellers the opportunity to add bones to their bases also.

The sheet contains both skulls and bones and is great for adding thematic details to the bases of undead armies or evil characters. It can be used on the bases of monsters to suggest the remains of previous meals or added to terrain pieces to add a deathly theme.

The method for using the sheets is very simple and quickly creates a great looking base. I've included a tutorial below where you can see some bases being created and some painted examples.

As well as the Skull and Bones sheet I'm launching other new items in the campaign including a set of 28mm scale monster skulls, a large dragon skull and a large altar filled with bones.

Skull and Bones sheet.

Here is a quick guide to using the Skulls and Bone sheet on your bases. First carefully trim individual parts off the main sheet.

It helps to use tweezers for the next stage. Cover the base with white glue and the carefully position some of the Skull and Bone parts in the glue.

Once everything is in position cover the base in standard basing gravel or sand. Leave to dry and you have an easy custom skull and bones base for your models.

Prime and paint for a really great looking effect.

Pledges.

I'm attempting to keep the pledges as simple as possible for this campaign. Rather than try to create multiple pledge levels to cover all item combinations there are only two pledge levels. The £1 supporter level and the £3 Bone Collector level. The Bone Collector gets you 1 Skull and Bones sheet and will automatically add postage according to your location. If you would like to pledge for more Skull and Bone sheets or any of the other items on offer please just increase your pledge by the appropriate amount.

If you would like to pledge for items but do not want any Skull and Bones sheet here is what to do. Still pledge at the £3 Bone Collector level to the correct amount for the items you are pledging for. When the survey is sent out you can let me know exactly what you have pledged for.

This should prove to be a simple and easy method of pledging.

Postage.

All pledges will be sent out boxed by Royal Mail First Class service in the UK. Overseas will be sent Royal Mail Standard International.

Risks and challenges

I'll be producing all the items for this campaign in house. I now have many years experience making moulds and casting in resin so can't foresee any serious problems in the production of the resin items. I have a regular supplier for the rubber and resin so I am confident of the supply of materials needed. All items featured within the campaign will have already been sculpted so you will see the actual pieces.

All pledges from my previous campaign were boxed and posted out and more importantly arrived! I'm confident of being able to pack and ship a large number of parcels and will implement some lessons learned from my previous campaign.

I've estimated a May shipping date which will give me plenty of time to get moulds made and products cast.

Thanks for looking!
