ABOUT THE PROJECT

Aeon Trespass: Nymphs is a beautiful series of pin-up style miniatures inspired by Greek mythology and the Science Fantasy genre. Each Nymph is a highly detailed resin miniature in the 32mm scale – perfect for painters, collectors and wargamers alike – and comes with a scenic base, an art print and a hand-numbered authenticity note, everything enclosed in hand-stamped craft box. This Kickstarter is a limited collector’s run, which means the miniatures may not be available outside the campaign or, if they are available, they will be released as an unnumbered Encore edition.

WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?  

We are a group of passionate professionals, eager to leave our mark upon the miniatures hobby world. With this first limited collection we wanted to make sure our message was clear: we strive for original content of the highest quality. Our pin-up models were inspired by Greek paintings and sculptures. We’ve taken care to be inclusive, choosing to go for the varied natural body types over photoshopped magazine cover artificial beauty. Bottom line: we want you to be satisfied and awed by the hard work of our fantastic artists and sculptors.  

WHAT IS AEON TRESPASS?  

Art doesn’t exist in a void. It needs context to be fully realized and appreciated. The great paintings and sculptures are as much a fruit of the artist’s labor, as they are of the times they were created in. So too, we wanted to root our Nymphs in a world that is more tangible and ‘lived-in’. We love world-building and game design; cool giant monsters, grizzled anti-heroes and epic tales of adventure. All that – and much more! – awaits you in the world and game of Aeon Trespass. 

The story takes places many years after Olympus fell - an event ominously called the Eschaton - when mortals have to deal with both, an unchecked technological progress and a return to more primal beliefs that precede even the old gods. It is a dark, dangerous world, stalked by kaiju-like monsters and visited by otherworldly entities, but one not without hope: courage, valor, loyalty and a penchant for beauty, they all shine the brightest in the pitch black of night.

NYMPHS

The Nymphs are a group of powerful entities that sprang into being after the old gods of Olympus died. Their motivations are unknown and their methods inscrutable. What is known, is that they like to play with the fates of mortals... Below you will find a short description of each Nymph and their place in the world.

This is just a small foray into that world: a wetting of your feet, if you will. Inspired by the great storytelling works of Dark Souls, Malazan Book of the Fallen and Kingdom Death, we’ve sprinkled small pieces of lore into those sections that will inform you further on the world of Aeon Trespass and point into the direction of its mysteries and secrets.

ABOUT US

We are a team of entertainment industry professionals and, more importantly, a group of close friends. We created our company, Into the Unknown, to tackle ambitious, unique projects. To explore strange beautiful worlds and share those wonders with you. Over the years, we’ve been involved in almost every facet of the fantasy hobby world: we created role-playing games, written speculative fiction novels, designed and translated board games, and developed and produced video games. We have experience working in small and large teams. We have the passion and the will to create great art and games, and we invite you to participate in this odyssey with us.  

Our creative director, writer and game designer. Miniature gamer and collector, the glue that binds the team together (also, coincidentally, the one writing these bios).  

Our unmatched art director with extensive experience in video games, board games and classical arts. Well, that’s selling him short: he’s also a graphics designer, 3D modeler, concept artist, visual style designer, video editor and game designer. His hard work puts us all to shame.  

Production director (‘producer’ just doesn’t cut it), programmer and game designer with over 10 years of experience in the video game industry. Jovial, passionate and very much into miniature board games. 

Our financial director (yes, we’re a company comprised solely of directors), game designer and passionate miniature and board gamer. His extensive knowledge of board games and economics helped shape our systems, company culture and beer tastes.

STRETCH GOALS

 More Stretch Goals coming soon!

SHIPPING  

This is our first campaign and we anticipate a lot of different combinations of rewards. To manage this challenge and deliver you the best experience worldwide, we decided on flat shipping costs based on your pledge level. When you pledge, the basic cost of shipping will be added to your pledge amount. Any add-ons you take on top of that raise the shipping cost by a flat +$2 per add-on (like an additional deluxe miniature set). After the end of the campaign, you will be sent a form to fill in your shipping address.

Flat shipping costs (one rate worldwide) based on pledge levels:

The Dreamer pledge - $12
plus $2 per add-on miniature set  

The Collector pledge - $15
plus $2 per add-on miniature set  

The Argonaut pledge - $20
plus $2 per add-on miniature set 

Basic pledge shipping example: If you select the Collector pledge, you get 3 deluxe miniature sets for $51 and $15 shipping. This flat fee will be added to your pledge amount when you select it.  

Basic pledge with add-ons example: If you’d want to order 5 miniature sets instead of 3, you’d select the Collector pledge ($51) and add additional $38 for the 2 additional sets plus shipping (2 sets for $17 each, and an additional shipping fee of $2 per set).

We plan to start production as soon as the funds from the Kickstarter campaign are available. We’re aiming for a May 2018 delivery date for the whole collection. We’re certain we can do it faster, but this is our first Kickstarter so we want to be on the safe side. 

Depending on the number of unlocked stretch goals, stretch goal fulfillment may be pushed back as 'wave 2'.

We expect to fulfill all rewards from within the EU. As a result, EU backers do not have to worry about customs or VAT costs. 

Please note that we cannot be responsible for any customs fees for those pledging from outside the EU. 

Tracking is not offered through this campaign. If tracking is important to you, please contact us via the KS messaging system before the campaign is over. 

Please note that we cannot take any responsibility for any lost or damaged copies to Hungary, Russia, Asia, South America, Africa or Antarctica.

Risks and challenges

We are confident to say that we are well-prepared for this campaign. As mentioned in the “About Us” section above, we are industry professionals, with experience in art, storytelling and, most importantly, managing production. The development of the collection is complete, all the art pieces for the art prints are final, all the models have been sculpted, master’s created and resin molds tested. All that is left is the actual production – and development of stretch goals, if you grace us with overwhelming support that will bring us over our initial goal.

Over the course of the last several months we’ve forged a great relationship with our model manufacturer, we received the first castings and we are satisfied with their quality. Both our model manufacturer and the printing company are located in our home city, which facilitates faster communication. Finally, we’ve booked our printing and production equipment in advance.

The only obstacles are the ones out of our hands: production or shipping delays on account of 3rd parties. As stated above, by designing everything ahead of time, by testing the castings and by booking equipment, we’ve done everything to ensure your models will arrive on time. If the reception to our campaign is overwhelmingly positive, we may need to design and produce another set of miniatures (oh, woes!), but in that case we will offer shipment of our collection in waves.
