WHAT’S THE CAMPAIGN?
Get ready for 7TV: Pulp with a new range of pulse-pounding pulp miniatures from Crooked Dice!
With this campaign, we hope to fund the production of TWELVE highly detailed 28mm white metal miniatures to support the upcoming release of the 7TV: Pulp boxed set in June 2019.
These miniature designs are based on the Star and Co-Star profiles from the forthcoming 7TV: Pulp game. However, while they complement the existing Crooked Dice range and 7TV skirmish rules, they are suitable for any pulp, horror or modern gaming settings.
Sculpts have been brought to life by the very talented Ernst Veingart and will be cast in white metal. If we are successful, we have a small number of stretch goals - also sculpted by Ernst. All miniatures are supplied unpainted.
There are four simple miniature pledges to choose from:
- Sidekick - just show your support and crooked love!
- Pulp Heroes Pledge - six heroic archetypes!
- Pulp Villains Pledge - six villainous archetypes!
- All In Pledge - all twelve miniatures!
While the campaign will be short and sweet, there's always room for some extra rewards! So as some encouragement for our loyal backers, we have four small scenic objective markers that will hopefully get unlocked at key funding milestones.
- 2K UNLOCKED - The Golden Idol is FREE to all backers. The centrepiece of any ancient, crumbling temple, the Golden Idol is as much trap as treasure. Sculpted by Ernst Veingart and cast in pewter.
- 4k UNLOCKED - The Priceless Jewel is FREE to all backers. Displayed in museums or private collections, this enormous gemstone can attract unwanted attention from cat burglars and obsessive collectors.
- 6k UNLOCKED - The Unholy Tome is FREE to all backers. This blasphemous text is rumoured to hold cosmic truths not meant for the human mind to comprehend.
- 8k UNLOCKED - The Holy Grail is FREE to all backers. This blessed chalice is the ultimate maguffin - with the legendary power to heal any wound - and even restore the dead back to life.
- 10k UNLOCKED - The Occult Statue is FREE to all backers. This unsettling cyclopean carving is prized amongst collectors who hope to unlock its ancient secrets.
- 12k UNLOCKED - The Monkey Totem is FREE to all backers. This golden treasure is protected by savage simians, deep in the islands of the South Pacific.
- 14k UNLOCKED - The Ark is FREE to all backers. Lost to the ages, and holding the very power of God, this holy relic is the ultimate prize!
- 16k UNLOCKED - The Falcon is FREE to all backers. The true power and purpose of this highly sought after jewel encrusted statue remains a mystery, but to a very few.
There are also some existing pulp-related packs from the Crooked Dice back catalogue that you can add to your pledge. The cost for these are not included in any base pledges, so you will need to increase the value of your pledge for each add on you require. All Add Ons are supplied unpainted.
WHO ARE CROOKED DICE?
Crooked Dice Game Design Studio has been part of the wargaming hobby since 2010. We specialise in wargames rules and 28mm miniatures inspired by the many and varied iconic worlds of Cult TV and film. We have a range of over 400 miniatures and an extensive selection of resin terrain and vehicles.
We also publish the 7TV skirmish system. These fun and flexible, cinematic skirmish rules allow you to recreate any type of cinematic action on the tabletop. We currently have two settings Inch High Spy-Fi and Apocalypse and will be bringing 7TV: Pulp to the tabletop in June 2019. The launch of this campaign is to help create miniatures to support that new game.
7TV: Pulp is a tabletop skirmish game inspired by the American cinema serials and pulp magazines of the 1930s and 1940s. It is the product of a unique collaboration between Crooked Dice Game Design Studio, developers of 7TV and 7TV: Apocalypse, and Creative Writing students from Edge Hill University in the northwest of England.
This boxed set will be going direct to retail, launched at the UK Games Expo on 31 May, so is not part of this campaign. However, you can follow its development and get previews of new mechanics on the 7TV: Pulp Blog.
Kickstarter has been chosen as a way to help fund production of this new set of miniatures. Successful funding via Kickstarter will be the quickest way to deliver more miniatures than if we used our traditional release schedule. So simply more minis, much faster! Plus the reach of Kickstarter is huge, and a community in itself, so we hope each new campaign will introduce Crooked Dice to a new audience.
We have set our initial funding target at £1500 which will cover production costs for the 12 new white metal miniatures.
You will be able to choose your pledge, provide shipping details and pay for shipping via the pledge manager that will be hosted on the Crooked Dice website once the campaign ends. Here you will also be able to add any other products from the Crooked Dice back catalogue and also pre-order the 7TV: Pulp boxed set.
As a long standing mail order business with a successful web store, we ship packages all over the world, every day. So you can be rest assured that your parcels are in good hands and will reach you safely.
The shipping will be added AFTER the Kickstarter, so is not included in your pledge. Shipping cost will be calculated by weight and size of your pledge plus any variables that you may add in the webstore. However, we try and only charge a flat rate, so estimated costs are:
European Union: From £5 to £12
Rest of World (including Canada and USA): From £8 to £13
Australia & New Zealand: £8 to £15
Crooked Dice are not responsible for any additional shipping or handling charges.
Risks and challenges
Crooked Dice is a successful manufacturer of miniatures and rules, so we have years of experience of designing and producing models.
The majority of models have been mastered, so as soon as the funds are in, moulds can be put into production.
Casting of all pewter figures will be completed by Griffin Moulds who are renowned for the high quality and ability to deliver on schedule, and have strong and established working relationships with Crooked Dice.
In the case of any delays outside our control - please be assured that your money is in safe and professional hands, and you will be updated regularly as to the situation.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
