Hi, my name is Damien Lyne and I would like to present my first solo project through my new company, Miniature13. Over a year ago I decided to create the miniatures that I always wanted to have, but could never find. Getting to this point has been an incredibly fun and interesting journey and I've had great support form the community with over 4000 Likes on Facebook, I'd just like to thank everyone for helping me get to this point, thank you. 

Initially I was going to do a traditional release but after talking with friends and a lot of research across the internet, as well as watching and reading what Ronnie Renton from Mantic games had to say about the positives of Kickstarters, I felt it was the right thing for Miniature13 to do. 

The first two models, Rayne and The Overseer, are going to be released whatever the outcome of this campaign, but for this campaign I hope to be able to fund the sculpting, printing and casting of the Eral Controller. After that, hopefully with your support, we can hit some stretch goals and get some more of these beautiful Sci-Fi concepts produced, and into your hands.

 Concept. Render. Mini.

I've been through the process of bringing two miniatures from concept art to the final model. From the start I wanted to stay as true to the concept as I could, keeping the final model as close to the original art as possible. In the future whenever i display preview art, I want people to know that what they see is what they'll ultimately get. 

All miniatures are 32mm scale, cast in a vacuum chamber, using high quality resin for best results. They are not 'restic'.

The miniatures you see below are prototypes, the final versions will be printed at a higher resolution and cast by Zealot Miniatures.

You can see other high resolution views of these miniatures, as well as concept art, on our Facebook page, as well as on our Pinterest page.

Kickstarter Exclusive Miniature.

This exclusive miniature is only available to backers of the Delta level pledge and higher. The exclusive will only be available through this and future kickstarter campaigns, it will not be available at conventions or through our online store(when launched), or bribery, unless your offering me a Porsche 8). So get it while you can!.  

Why the short campaign?

I've been looking through previous miniature campaigns and I noticed that most 30 day campaigns have little to no movement in the middle, especially for new companies like Miniature13, To help minimize this I've decided to do a smaller 17 day one, making it easier to keep up the momentum and excitement which I'm sure, with your help we can do by hitting a few stretch goals along the way:)

As the stretch goals are unlocked they will be added free to their respective pledge levels. You can also get them from the optional extras section further down the page, where extra minis can also be added to your pledge if required. Both Rayne and Scarecrow will also be available in 54mm.

The cast.

Frontline.

Scarecrow

During the fourteen minute war, Scarecrow led a minimally equipped E.V.A Special forces team against a Hask'l Empire command ship. Launching from the Earth vessel 'Lack of Interest', they traversed two hundred and fifty thousand kilometers of open space, to the Hask'l Empires command ship, where they then proceeded to breach and take control in less then nine minutes. Scarecrows team executed the Hask'l Queen and detonated charges in the Royal hatcheries, venting the atmosphere. The death of the Queen and immediate Royal line led to the Empire fracturing, almost instantly, as each Hask'l princess felt the death of their Queen. Fifty years later the Empire is still in a state of civil war.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuesday.

Tuesday is a highly decorated, naturally skilled sniper and veteran of numerous battles. Under the leadership of Scarecrow, she learned the skills needed to survive. Tuesday has become a regular member of the freelancer team know as the ''Never Knights'' which is led by Skinner West. Tuesdays love of classic Earth motorbikes is obsessive and she has amassed a substantial collection. She believes a fast sniper is a happy sniper.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Controller.

Early in their space-faring history the Eral discovered that they had the ability to manipulate the minds of some of the lesser developed races they discovered and it was decided by the Spire Council, to instill within those that were usefull an almost religious fervor towards the Eral. 
Controllers are the lowest of Eral command ranks, but are also responsible for the main bulk of Eral forces. During combat Controllers maintain a psychic link with the Primitives, managing their fears and building within them a fanatical need to honor their Living Gods. The number of Primitives in a unit depends on the Erals innate psychic ability and type of Primitive being controlled.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lucius

Lucius was the successful outcome of project 113 proving his worth on one of his first strike operations against a Voch Hegonmony facility. Due to bad Intel, the presence of two Overseers at the location was overlooked. Once encountered, the mission was immediately aborted and Adira lay down covering fire while the team retreated. Lucius engaged both Overseers and a vicious hand to hand fight ensued. During the fight Lucius managed to kill one, breaking its neck before the second Overseer managed to get the upper hand, ripping out Lucius's throat with its clawed hand . If not for Adira and the team coming back he would surely have died. Lucius is the only sentient creature on record to have ever killed an Overseer, one on one, and because of this, twelve more of his brothers and sisters were created by Blue Ocean.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adira.

Adira served with the Earth Navy for almost a decade, most of which was as liaison to the Eral Fleet. After leaving the Navy she started working for the Blue Ocean Corporation as a part of its security forces. She was put in charge of training the Organics that resulted from Project 113, most of the which were deemed unsuitable for purpose and terminated, until Lucius, who surpassed all expectations. After several missions together they have developed a strong bond and are often referred to as 'Beauty and the Beast'.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rayne

After a clandestine meeting with the rogue Mind, Widow Blue, Rayne left her job with the Blackwell Alpha Corporation, and began working as a hacker for hire. Her unique talents have resulted in high demand from both Incursion and Strike teams as well as a few less legitimate agencies. On one particular Incursion within the Phantom Worlds exclusion zone, she came into contact with the Stream, and if not for the decisive action of the team commander, Skinner West, brutally hacking off both of her lower legs and right arm, she would have died, or worse become part of the Stream.

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overseer - The Voch Hegemony

The Hegemony breed Overseers to lead its military forces, in the most crucial of conflicts, whenever victory is needed. Standing at over seven feet tall, and equipped with the latest in Voch technology, these genetically modified warriors are rightly feared and are often seen leading the charge into the heart of the enemy.

Here you can add some extras to your pledge, just increase your pledge amount by the cost of extras total, for example if you back the Beta level reward(€30) and add Adira(€15) your new total would be €30 +€15= €45 plus shipping.

Risks and challenges

The main risk in this project is that, due to circumstances out of my control, the miniatures may be delivered later than planned but I am working with some fantastic and experienced people and i firmly believe I can meet the delivery dates stated.
