About this project
With two successful miniatures Kickstarters completed, RBJ Game Company has hatched a vile new alien race, INFESTORS. The Infestor models are sculpted by Gene VanHorn and Cast by Fortress Figures. The Infestors are the scourge of the galaxy. They can be the scourge of your game too.
For this Project we have Infestor Eggs, Larvae, Workers, Warriors and a few other Nifty new Items. We have added new FREE shipping to certain countries based on pledge levels to help out.
Our figures are for the commonly used gaming scale of one inch is equal to five feet scale.
This makes our human figures 28mm from toe to eye or 30mm from toe to the top of head if standing up. See photo above for a size comparison to figures produced by other popular gaming companies.

Stretch Goals and Loyalty Backer Bonuses :
Our intention for this kickstarter is to add a stretch goal to each pledge of $50.00 or more as each funding level is achieved. All backers at pledge levels of $50.00 or more at the end of the campaign will receive all stretch goal rewards included with their pledge rewards on fulfillment. The stretch goal rewards will be awarded in addition to your pledge level and will be automatically included with your shipment when your pledge is fulfilled. The stretch goal models shown are between 15mm and 25mm tall and will fit comfortably on a 25mm base that will be included for them. All stretch goal reward models will be cast in white metal.
We have a variety of pledge levels to choose from including all new figures if you participated in the last kickstarter and don't need duplicates and an ALL IN level if you missed the last one so you can catch up. It should be noted that this $15.00 level is not eligible for stretch goal rewards.

On the end of the campaign, each backer will be issued a coupon code via e-mail to redeem at our on-line shop 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)

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 last Kickstarter at more than double the funding level, 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 and 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 and printing 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. A quick look at our previous Kickstarters will show that we shipped rewards to backers ahead of schedule. We received a total of 2 (two) complaints from all of our backers regarding fulfillment. One of these was simply the delivery company not getting it to the backer which was eventually resolved by sending a replacement and the other one was a backer not happy with a defective casting that was resolved by substitution and replacement. We believe we have a 100% backer satisfaction record after two 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
