This is a miniatures-only project and has been created in order to co-fund the tooling of Shieldmaiden troop miniatures in hard plastic (HIPS) as well as other miniatures of this army in resin. This project will feature shieldmaiden infantry kits (shieldmaidens, rangers, warmaidens etc), Ice Warbears and Yetis (with their riders) and a lot more planned for this unique worldwide fantasy army. These miniatures are fitting for both skirmish and army gamers & collectors!
All polyurethane resin casts are done by Shieldwolf in-house. We have proven our expertise in casting over the past several years with products available both direct and from worldwide retail. All plastic kits for Shieldwolf Miniatures are manufactured by Renedra Ltd., an experienced and valued manufacturer who have produced hard plastic kits for Warlord and Perry Miniatures, as well as our own Mountain Orcs.
Note: All miniatures from this campaign are supplied unpainted and may require assembly.
(Yes, both of the above are PRODUCTION miniatures!)
All miniatures are designed to fit 28mm "heroic" scale games.
Please Take Note : Based on past experience, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this after the campaign ends and when ready to ship. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options. We have cofunded shipping in the past but we found out that is not directly noticable, so we decided to cofund exclusively the plastic sets instead! :-)
Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping
-a standard game package (i.e. the boxed game) EU should not be more than 15$. ROW should not cost more than 18$.
-a Raiding party EU should not cost more than 10$ ROW should not cost more than 15$
-a Starter army EU should not cost more than 15$ ROW should not cost more than 20$
-an Orc campaign army EU should not cost more than 25$ ROW should not cost more than 30$
-a Shieldmaiden campaign army EU should not cost more than 30$ ROW should not cost more than 35$
Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose. All parcels leave without a tracking number as we have noticed the chance of it being lost is close to zero! If you however wish for a tracking number, we will provide that option as well. We also cannot ship to PO Boxes domestically or internationally. Due to the size of each package there is too great a risk of the package being bounced back to us. Also note that not only we will do our best to get you your rewards in a timely manner -as we have proved in the past-, so you may receive them before the product makes it into retail distribution in your own country (if these newer plastic kits ever get tooled naturally). We retain ourselves accountable regardless of legal windows that may be available. In the remote case that a delay may happen, we hope that the special price and exclusive items you will get during the Kickstarter will make up for any such possible lag.
However, if this is something that is not acceptable to you, please do not back this project and instead wait for the retail release (again, if these new plastic kits get tooled). Thank you for your understanding.
And finally, for those who want to sound the drums or blow their battle horns...
Augmenting the current range will allow Shieldwolf Miniatures to grow a variety of high detailed & innovative miniatures but also speed up the creation of their game, "War is Coming". What can you do to help? Spread the word! Share, comment... anything that may let more people know.
Risks and challenges
This is the reboot of our second Kickstarter (technically our third) and with the (massive) experience gained we believe homework has been done and -excluding natural disasters that are out of our hands- this campaign will again run smoothly.
A crowdfunding project may inevitably carry risks we had not (or could not) foresee. However here at Shieldwolf Miniatures we hold very dearly to our reputation! We don't do excuses! For this reason we are offering a money-back guarantee (just like we did in our first Kickstarter project) to prove the dedication we have in this project. If for any reason you do not like what you receive, please mail them back within 30 days of receiving your rewards; we will refund you 100%, fees included, no questions asked.
We comprehend that a highly augmented number of backers compared to our KS-1 is harder to work with; although we trust we can meet expectations it is a challenge for sure! :-)
The good part is that this project has an easier structure compared to our previous one, so the pledges will be easier to organize. We have a number of sculpts ready, the sculptors commissioned are professionals whom we have faith will keep their deadlines and we have time slots registered for everything.
We appreciate you taking the time to read this! :-)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
