The aim of this project is to fund the production of a range of 28mm mushroom themed miniatures and scenery items. I'll be using contract casters to turn the Mushimen greens into metal figures and I'll be looking into using resin casters for some of the resin miniatures. Anything else will be cast in-house by myself.
With the Mushimen, I wanted to create a range of mushroom-men creatures who use stone-age weapons. This sets them apart from D&D Myconids who only use their fists for combat. I felt stone-age technology suited the feel of these creatures and would make them useable in traditional fantasy settings as well pulp "lost world" settings. Along with the melee warriors, certain Mushimen attain a mastery of magic and become tribal wizards.
In addition to the Mushimen are other fungi themed creatures. I've made a selection of the classic Shrieker mushrooms including a huge Boss Shrieker. To go with these are four metal branches which can be used to turn them into the dreaded Violet Fungi. Shoomies are the possibly the strangest of the lot, one-eyed creeping mushrooms.
There are only two pledge levels for this campaign. The first is the Supporter pledge which is for people who'd like to send over some funds to help the project along, without requiring any rewards.
The second is the Mushroom Master level. Use this if you are pledging for some or all of the campaign rewards. All the models included in this campaign will be show below, along with the price. Select which rewards you would like to pledge towards, total the prices and pledge that amount. You will be able to let me know what rewards you have pledged for when the survey is sent.
Postage and packaging will be automatically added at the following rates:
UK : £3
Europe : £4
Rest of World : £5
Parcels will be sent out Royal Mail First Class.
Below are the models I'm hoping to bring into production with this campaign. They are grouped into packs. Following the packs are pictures with some 28mm figures for scale purposes.
The Mushigiant model may be cast in resin or metal or a combination of both. Club arm will need gluing into position.
Risks and challenges
I will be able to use the experience gained during my previous two campaigns to succesfully complete this project. I have set a delivery date which I feel is very achievable. I have a number of years experience casting resin in house and feel confident in being able to produce high quality castings for the campaign.
The metal figures will be produced by an experience metal caster with decades of experience so I expect the figures to be of the highest quality. I expect the mastering and production of the figures to run smoothly with any problems being overcome between the caster and myself.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
