About

Frills & Fauna - Vent Dragon Mother

£1,014

28

This project offers you the chance to help fund the production of the Vent Dragon Mother miniature, to be cast in resin. Should pledges go beyond the funding target, stretch goals will be unlocked, allowing you to add other miniatures to your pledge and in some cases gain free items.

The basic pledge level grants you one copy of the Vent Dragon Mother cast in resin, with the option to add a scenic base or other add-ons. She comes with an alternate head should you find her a bit too alien.

 

Inspired by its name sake, the mother is an expansion on the Vent Dragon miniature designed for Frills & Fauna - Krakon Games' first Kickstarter. The concept was the brain child of Jon Boyce, who gave us permission to use again for this new model.

The sculpt was designed with a 28mm scale in mind, but would work in other environments or your display cabinet just as well.

Risks and challenges

This is my third Kickstarter, so I have experience planning, running and fulfilling such projects.

I have just finished fulfilling and posting my first Kickstarter, which has been received very well - it inspired this one! My second Kickstarter is currently with the caster, with work on my part complete until stock arrives to post to backers.

Each Kickstarter has been both a delight to create and important lessons. While I don't feel there have been any mistakes or problems (we delivered early!), each new project is better equipped for you, the backer with my improving skills at running them.

I have previously released my own models using the high-quality services of Hysterical Games for mouldmaking and casting. This means I have an understanding of the costs and timescales involved in the process of taking some putty and converting it to resin (or metal) miniatures in your hands.

All models involved in this Kickstarter at time of launch are sculpted so there is no risk of their sculpting delaying the project. However, if the worst should happen, as the originator of the sculpts, I am more than capable of recreating them.
