About this project
Createyourminis is about letting you design through our website your own 28/32mm miniatures (1:56 precisely, for example the miniature of a 1.80m tall human will be 1800/56=32mm high). You choose the type of model you want, like man or woman, then select the clothes, the weapon, the equipment. Once you are done, you choose how the weapon is held then select a pose among the compatible poses.
After you wait a couple of minutes for the model to be built then you can visualize it, order it or save it to be modified or ordered later.
Among the numerous features, the most important in regard of this kickstarter campaign is the possibility to add symbols on some flat elements, usually shields, torso armors or shoulder pads. You can even add those symbols on some elements of the weapon sprue so you can convert other miniatures.
But the best way to see what our website is capable of is to try it ! (just go to createyourminis.com, I know you want to)
We developed the website and designed a lot of 3D elements, showed our website on specialized forums so our site could be beta tested and to get feedback. For instance we got the idea of symbols from a suggestion on a forum. Now we are ready for the next step :
By supporting this project you are helping us to acquire the means of production we lack, you are also giving us the opportunity to extend the range of elements. You will also allow us to rent better servers, ours are slow to build the 3D models and we can probably divide this delay by 5 at least.
First, you will get our thanks and our eternal gratitude to allow us to complete this project. In the remote possibility this is not enough, pledging will also gives us the possibility to extend this project by adding new elements, poses or body types :
You will also get the rewards defined in the next paragraph. But that's only if our eternal gratitude is not enough.
Hanôn and Drop Dead Daisy are 2 FREE models exclusive to this kickstarter campaign.
Symbols are a possibility given to backers to send us an image to be include into our database to personalize even more your miniatures. You will just have to provide us an image in black and white, black being the background. For obvious reason we won't accept anything copyrighted, swastika or equivalent and so on.
For the highest pledge, we will add the weapon of your choice to our database. It will have the same restrictions than for the symbols (nothing copyrighted, etc.), plus technical limitations :
some weapons are too exotic for our system (a whip or a retiarius' net for example) and some more that look good in artwork might need some adjustments (parts too thin to be printed, the buttstock being too short or too long for a rifle to be held, etc.)
For the need of this campaign the currency is the Canadian dollar but since we are based in France our price will eventually be in Euro, which means that you might notice a slight variation one way or the other between the announced saving amount and the real one. I tried to call Wall Street, explaining it would be easier for our backers if they fixed the exchange rate between the Euro, the Canadian and the US dollar, they said no. How rude.
For obvious reasons we can't produce in advance nor in bulk, meaning we will first give the possibility to order to the backers with the highest pledges and slowly open it to the lesser ones when our production capacity allows it. The order between backers is define by the wave number. Non backers will have to wait a few more months before being able to purchase from us. Once you can order your reward you can also buy more from us, you will even be able to join your reward and your purchase, so you'll pay for the shipping only once.
We don't charge the shipping in this kickstarter campaign. Instead, it will be charged at the order, when we will actually be able to ship your miniatures. It allows us to know exactly how much it will cost us therefore charging you a fairer price, and you won't have to pay it upfront.
That said, the shipping will cost around:
European Union and Switzerland: €11-14
Rest of the world : €14-18

Risks and challenges
We took a lot of time before launching this kickstarter campaign, we showed the website and got a lot of feedback (but we still hope for more !) and all the software problems we know of are solved. In theory we just have to buy some 3D printers, plug them, send them the 3D models you will have created and voilà !
We should be able to start the production in march 2015, easy. No problem. With time to spare. What could possibly go wrong ?
So the estimated delivery date for the first wave is may 2015. Because Murphy's law.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
