This is a miniatures-only project and has been created in order to complement the Krumvaal Northern Alliance female army, which includes troop miniatures, cavalry and other (larger) goodies in hard plastic (HIPS) as well as other fantastic miniatures of this army in high quality polyurethane resin.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Some designs illustrated might be changed according to tooling restrictions but also any other needs the project demands. This is a crowdfunding campaign to create something completely new; this is NOT a pre-order!
After which, more female factions come into play like our Paladin faction who in the Shieldwolf World are the guardians of knowledge and protectors of faith, the Sisters of the Kingdom of Talliareum. And more to follow!
We start this project with the fantasy Wolf Wardens and sci-fi Sisters of Wolves; for each fantasy kit we unlock, Shieldwolf Miniatures will fund an alternative hard-plastic kit for the sci-fi version making thus new pledge levels available to its backers (i.e. new Raiding Parties, Starter Armies etc).
These lovely fantasy and sci-fi female armies provide miniatures fitting for both skirmish and army gamers & collectors!
WHAT DOES EACH WOLF WARDENS AND SISTERS OF WOLVES BOX INCLUDE?
Each Wolf Wardens Infantry box (click on link for larger image) will include enough parts to assemble 20 multi-part hard plastic miniatures allowing you a large variety of items to choose from (weaponry, multiple head versions, etc).
To add more variety to this nordic fantasy horde of warrioresses you can also choose to enhance your army with the existing Shieldmaiden Army we created with the help of the backers in the Shieldmaiden Army project!
Each Sisters of Wolves box (click on link for larger image) will include enough parts to assemble 10 multi-part hard plastic miniatures allowing an equally large variety of customizable choices. Boxes include ten 30mm round bases.
As stretch goals pile up, more and more stuff will get added to the boxes and pledge levels in general, depending on what level the backer has pledged for.
Just like in our previous campaigns, we will be rewarding at two different levels, Gold and Silver.
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.
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 the Pledge Manager is ready. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all.
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 12$. ROW should not cost more than 15$
-a fantasy Starter army EU should not cost more than 20$. ROW should not cost more than 25$
-a sci-fi Starter army EU should not cost more than 25$. ROW should not cost more than 30$
-a fantasy campaign army EU should not cost more than 25$. ROW should not cost more than 30$
-a sci-fi 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 the final package there is too great a risk of the package being bounced back to us. Based on past experience we are forced to inform that this project excludes shipping to the following countries: Brazil, Russia.
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 new plastic kits get the required funding to be 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 receive the required additional funds to get tooled). Thank you for your understanding.
And finally, for those who want to sound the drums, blow their battle horns or transmit in all frequencies...
Augmenting the current range will allow Shieldwolf Miniatures to grow a variety of high detailed & innovative miniatures but also speed up the creation of our 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
Shieldwolf Miniatures (TM) currently holds a 100% track record in regards to fulfilling Kickstarters with two under our belt totalling more than 100,000$ and 750+ backers.
Risks are mainly limited to grave misfortunes (knock wood!) and unforseen issues but otherwise we have twice proven our ability to deliver what we promise!
We consider the main challenge to be in the over-extention of the project; we like challenges, we'll see how that goes. We have every confidence we will be up to the task due to the augmented passion we have when creating these new projects.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
