A New Beginning...

Hello pledgers,

Thank you so much for putting faith in Minion Miniatures and helping us raise over £10k for this Kickstarter. The truth is, we may have bitten off more than we could chew in regard to the amount needed to fund and I realise, as a new start company, this was extremely ambitious. However, I have learned so much over the last week and I have been thoroughly amazed at the support and constructive comments made by you all.  

I think the best thing for us to do as a company is launch a much smaller Kickstarter to launch the brand. I think we have a unique take on the fantasy genre and I would like to offer a few of our models to you guys in the short term before coming back with a bigger Kickstarter in the new year. Our next Kickstarter is going to be for our two fully rendered big beasties; the Flesh Golem and the Bugbear Ironshield. We are also going to add the Goblin Skulk into the mix as well.

The stretch goals will quite simply be addons for both models, different head choices, different, weapon choices or shield choices for the Ironshield. The funding goal will likely be around the £2k mark with stretch goals being implemented every £500-£1000. This will enable us to fund some of the additional renders and models for the full Underdeep Kickstarter in February 2015.

The other good news is the turnaround time. We would anticipate no more than a three month wait for the models which will show you that we mean business and that we can delivery a quality product on time! So don't fret! Minion Miniatures will be back very soon! 

Whats more I would like all of you who think you will participate in our next KS to send me your details as you guys will be privileged owners of a unique head for the Bugbear Ironshield and the Flesh Golem! So don't cancel your pledge just yet as I would like to get your details before I close this Kickstarter. We are likely to relaunch the Kickstarter within a couple of weeks so please keep your eyes peeled. We will be posting on Facebook and advertising this new campaign. Once again, thank you for your support. It means a lot to us that you have faith in our creations and I am sure we will be seeing you again soon!

      Do we need to contact you with the link, with particular info, or are you grabbing info from kickstarter itself?

    4. Trodax on

      Sounds great! Keep us posted on when you'll be launching the new one!

      I'll be there.

      It'll be a long hard road to get those lizards you showed off, but I will definitely be happy to settle for a few sneaky goblins and a bugbear to keep me satisfied for the time being!

      Awesome! Im going to need a Bugbear or two to protect the flanks of my hobgoblin legionaries. ;-)

      It's a shame and understandable, I'll be here but don't forget the standard goblins and zombies as they are awesome and I was really looking forward to painting and playing with them, so good luck and see you in the new year :)

      @Simon Barnes:

      Thanks Simon. This mini kickstarter will pave the way for the relaunch in February. The more successful we are in the mini KS the more we can pump into the next one!

      Thanks Euan!

      @Richard good decision and I will definitely be interested in your interpretation of both Zombies and of course the Goblins.

      It is positive that you have realised that you might have been overly ambitious and pulled the plug, rather than allowing the thing to drag on into a failure to fund, or, worse still, a funded kickstarter you couldn't complete.

      All the best with the new launch. The bugbear is a great miniature.

      @Per-Olov Gothe:

      As stated I think we will release in metal and resin first with a quick fulfilment timeframe. The plastics will be a stretchgoal. Looking forward to seeing you at the next one Per!

      We will have a new Prefundia page but please feel free to message me with your email address and I will personally email you the link when it goes live!

      And i'll be back aswell. This works out well for me as i worried i would not be able to afford a horde of Goblins and Zombies ...and the Bugbears at the same time. So a split KS sounds good to me. Please tell me that the Bugbear Brute will be on the first KS!
      And i do hope you guys can avoid making it so that the plastic KS mean a longer release time.

      I'll back the next Project for the Ironshield. And the full Feb15 for plastic armoured zombies... :)
