This campaign is for 32mm / 1:57 scale original resin miniatures that each come with their own story art cards. This kickstarter is a one person job with everything being done myself except for some painting. The goal is to create a full in-house studio to manufacture and create high end miniatures and have fast turn arounds of prototypes through 3d printing, and having the necessary equipment to turn an idea into an available figure ready to be released in less than a few days. This is my absolute passion and dream pushing to create a robust world as well as to test my abilities as a creator and manufacturer. I hope you will enjoy these figures if the funding is complete and join me on my journey to create and invent.
Fateslayer has been an idea that has been constantly evolving, it has gone through countless names, and changes to its themes and ideas. Finally, I can say the world has started to come together and has started to come alive. It's set in a dark fantasy with a large theme of as you would guess, fate and it's constant struggle to break free from it. Each figure holds a story piece that weaves the world around each other and brings life to the world of Fateslayer. Many of the stories hold secrets and reveals what's to come in the Fateslayer universe. I hope you'll enjoy each of these crafted stories and the many characters that reside inside of it.
10 model sets each with their own story art card.

I concept, model, then cut up in zbrush. I send the figures to a 3d printer for prototyping. Afterwards if the prototype is successful I create a positive mold in zbrush then mold in silicone under pressure. After the silicone is set I cast in resin under pressure and vacuum.
Picture depicting digital modeling process.
Upper left depicts the casted models, lower left is casted models on the sprue, everything else depicts the prototype model. Each model requires test prints to ensure balance, fitting, and everything in between.
These pictures depict painted examples which have been painted by Grendler. These are the prototypes sent to him to test the fits and paint. The pictures with other figures show examples of different scales.
The lower picture depicts the scaling of various different kinds of similar scaled models to show the base size. The upper picture shows the scaling differences between the actual models in the kickstarter. The black bars are there to protect the identities of those pictured.
These are the prototype art/story cards, these were tested as tarot size, but will be instead going for regular playing size cards as well as the text being edited for better readability.
Currently just one member, but will hopefully be adding more in the near future.
I've been on a long journey to become a self-sufficient artist. My passion is sculpting and creating, having freedom of my works and control of what I produce is something I hold very dear and strive to accomplish.
Nick Johnson - For making a lot of this possible.
Rasmus "Grendler" Söder - For beta testing my figures, painting, and overall helpful feedback. You can find him at https://www.twitch.tv/grendler
Twitch viewers - For watching and keeping me company while I toiled away.
Each stretch goal that is met will be another new figure that will be added on top of the Fate slayer tier and the Secret slayer tier. These will be of no extra charge and will follow the same guidelines of Card and figure.
Unfortunately I am unable to do free shipping due to the costs being too immense to balance for the cost of figures. I'm expecting international customers to pay 30ish or less dollars for shipping and 12 dollars or less for mainland US customers. All EU deliveries will be shipping from Red dice games located in Scotland. For the UK I have gotten estimates for around 7-8 usd and for the rest of the EU around 14-16 usd, this may go lower or higher depending on unforeseen circumstances. Everything will be done in backerkit and I will not be able to do an accurate estimation until then.
Risks and challenges
I have been doing this nearly non-stop for the last 3 years nearly everyday from learning to do traditional sculpture to digital, learning production and doing mass productions. Learning what I need to create under not the best circumstances have taught me to be adaptable and problem solve or recover quickly. I have been streaming a constant 3 years of this experience as well showing every step of my process and having much of it documented. The goal has always been to do every part of this in-house to have full quality control as well as a quick turn around without the need of 3rd parties. Delays will be rare unless I am injured severely or am dead, everything should be delivered sooner if not on the month predicted.
Shipping is something I can not unfortunately control, but will try my best to land them safely to where they will need to go. All shipping will be done through backerkit and will not be collected until the very end,
