This is Ben Rodman, AKA Wizard Goose from RBJ Game Company. My task is to come up with new designs and concepts for our artists to work from. With the success of our first Kickstarter the stars have aligned for me to produce a good number of brand new designs. Bobby Jackson has sculpted some imaginative models for you this time around. Fortress Figures is again producing our figures so you know the quality will be top notch. Along with my brother, Jeff, and my sister, Ronda, we are reaching out to the miniatures gaming community to support our second Kickstarter Project.
For this Project we have General Aurora Salt, Robots, and several more specialists. For our backers in the U.S.A, we also offer FREE shipping for pledge level ending the campaign at $50.00 or more.
White metal production copies of the new models from Fortress Figures.
Our figures are for the commonly used gaming scale of one inch is equal to five feet scale. This makes our human figure 28mm from toe to eye or 30mm from toe to top of head if standing up. It is our goal to keep our figures a consistent scale throughout the ranges. See photo below for a size comparison to figures produced by other popular gaming companies.
Last Minute Add-On
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. The $10.00 level is for the General Aurora Salt and her trusted genetically enhanced covert operative companion Sergeant Pepper. It should be noted that this $10.00 level is not eligible for stretch goal rewards.
If what you get in the standard pledge is not enough, and how could it be, you can add any number of additional models to you pledge as desired.
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)
Other Destinations $20
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 still have some 3D prints that need to be printed (the standing at attention guys and the stretch goal figures), a few master molds and a half dozen production molds remain to be finished before casting your figures can begin. 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 Kickstarter will show that we shipped rewards to backers a full three months ahead of schedule last time around.
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 so no one is left guessing about what is going on.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
