Frankenstein is a classic tale of a scientist who creates a monster with unintentional consequences. My brother Jeff Rodman created all the cool laboratory equipment. We enlisted mad scientist Jason Wiebe to create our monster and his faithful mechanic Eekgor and of course Fortress Figures gives life to these inanimate chunks of resin or pewter.
This project is for unpainted, white metal and/or resin figurines. Models are provided NOT painted. Models are scaled to 28mm toe to eye or 1:60. Models are provided with a plastic tab/slot base. White metal figurines are not toys and are intended only for adults. Models may require some assembly, may have sharp or pointed parts and are a choking hazard to anyone prone to put them in their mouth.
On the end of the campaign, each backer will be issued a coupon code via Kickstarter to redeem at our on-line store for your pledge rewards. This worked out very well last time around seeming to be the simplest way and also allows for some last minute additions if you desire. Shipping fees are not included in the pledge level and will be collected at the time you redeem your coupon code.
Estimated shipping fees:
U.S. $0 - $5 (U.S. receives free shipping for $50 or more pledges)
Canada $0-$15 (Canada receives free shipping for $125 or more pledges)
World Wide $0-20 (Free world wide shipping for $175 or more pledges)
Customs fees, duties, taxes, tariffs and or additional charges incurred at the shipping destination by the receiver are the responsibility of the receiver. RBJ Game company cannot accept any responsibility for additional charges imposed by the taxing authority of the legal jurisdiction of the receiving residency.
Kickstarter has proven to be the best method to launch and expand a new range of miniatures. Kickstarter has enabled a renascence in miniatures by allowing manufacturers to appeal directly to their fan base. With the success of our Kickstarters, we were able to have several more figures sculpted, printed and put into production than we initially planned. The funding level directly affects the expansion of the range with our backers literally funding our efforts with their venture capital. What better way to participate in creating the miniatures you want while supporting the hobby we love?
Risks and challenges
There is practically no chance of this project not being fulfilled once the successful funding level is reached. Fortress Figures is one of the oldest professional miniatures production companies with more than three decades of experience casting the finest white metal miniatures with capabilities for casting several thousand figures per day. All molding and casting is done in house by our dedicated staff of three well experienced individuals. Only the sculpting is outsourced and the sculpting portion of the project is already completed. We have again, allowed ourselves what we consider to be an extraordinarily abundant amount of time to complete this project. We have, so far, completed 13 Kickstarter projects. A quick look at our previous Kickstarters will show that we shipped rewards to backers well ahead of schedule. We believe we have a 100% backer satisfaction record after twelve successful kickstarters. We're not perfect but if a problem does arise we do our honest best to resolve any issues.
An unforeseen event, though unlikely, could be, well, unforeseen. Should anything go awry, I pledge to keep our backers up to date on any delays or scheduling changes that might occur.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
