To show our APPRECIATION for you SUPPORT...we are ADDING MORE ITEMS to the Pirate Hoard & Double Hoard packages!

Thanks to you, we BLEW by BOTH stretch goals!  To show our gratitude, we are adding 2 NEW "modular" scopes styles to each Pirate Hoard & Double Hoard packages.  There will be 4 versions of EACH new scope, which means Pirate Hoard levels will get 8 additional NEW items and Double Hoard levels will have 16 additional NEW items added to their packages for FREE!  The $25 Pirate Hoard level NOW has 36 NEW items!  The $45 Double Hoard level now has 72 NEW items!  So EVERYONE already participating in those levels will have their packages UPGRADED to include the new items and EVERYONE that chooses those particular contribution packages from this point on will receive the new UPGRADED packages! 

There will be a Black version, "Baby Blue" Version, "Tan camo" paint scheme and a "realistic" paint scheme version of EACH new scope in each Pirate Hoard package (DOUBLE that number in the Double Hoard packages).

Below are 3d scans of the new items and the UPDATED list of items that are in the Pirate Hoard package (Double Hoard packages receive DOUBLE the items in the Pirate Hoard).  Since we surpassed the original "Stretch" goals, we were able to add ADDITIONAL items to the packages to show our appreciation for your AMAZING support!

UPDATED!  Since we passed our Stretch Goals and we wanted to ADD MORE to your packages...the Pirate Hoard "Mark II" level now has 36 NEW items!  The price of the level has NOT changed and is still just $25!  The Double Hoard "Mark II" level will have 72 NEW items and is still only $45!

Why are we doing this?

Our original Kickstarter project to release new gear for 1:18 scale action and gaming figures was a huge success.  Even though we hit the funding target goal, we did not hit any of the "stretch" goals that would have allowed us to release even more items.  During the production process for the new items, we have encountered a very narrow "window of opportunity" that will allow us to release some additional items at the same time as those already planned for this upcoming May/June.   This limited opportunity involves some significant production costs savings that will allow us to release some of the MOST popular items at greatly reduced development costs.

Which brings to our "new" project here on Kickstarter...or what we refer to as "Mark II."  If we can hit this much lower funding goal, we could add 3 additional items that will also be released this May/June 2013 (along with the other items from the original Marauder GR Kickstarter project).

What Do I Get For Supporting You?

We have a number of opportunities available for our supporters.

Our goal for this project is a much more modest $2,400.  That will allow for us to sculpt, prototype, tool and produce 3 ALL NEW items.  We'll be able to release new items in our very popular "unpainted" versions, but also in some other special edition PRE-PAINTED versions.  We have several contribution levels starting at a $1 and going up from there.  Also, there are some "Stretch goals" that will allow us to release even MORE items in this "Mark II" event if we surpass our $2,400 (hey, you never know!).  There are just 2 (two) stretch goals (each just $1,200 apart) and hitting those goals will mean SEVERAL ADDITIONAL NEW items added to some of the support levels (with NO additional contribution required...you just get more stuff added to your original support package level).  The more stretch goals we can hit, the more NEW items can be produced and added to the May/June 2013 release.

Something for everyone who loves 1:18 scale miniature plastic action & gaming figure accessories. Whether you participated in our original Kickstarter event or you only will participate in the "Mark II" supplemental event, with your help, we can ramp up production and release a lot MORE accessories QUICKER for all your action & gaming figure needs.  Again, we thank you for your support and hope you decide to participate in the Marauder GR Kickstarter event!

We're doing this Kickstarter to give Marauder's supporters a chance to get MORE of their requested items produced and to gauge demand for more "Deluxe" action & gaming figure accessories. If you love detailed miniature gaming accessories, then here are the various pledge levels. We appreciate any help we can get!

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges of this project are the same we've been dealing with since our first releases in 2005. We've not only proven to be a reliable source for miniature gear, but have shown a passion for customer service and commitment to our supporters. We have access to some of the most talented sculptors, access to state of the art production facilities and a proven commitment to delivering what we promise. We have a proven process in place to deliver items as planned and successfully reaching the project's goal will allow for us to dramatically speed up the release time table for the new items.

We plan to deliver the items as described, but hope to add several "modular" & "interchangeable" features to most of the items. The addition of any "Bonus" features and/or "Bonus" functions to the items in this project will be added based upon the final appearance & the working functionality that will hold true to the original design. Will keep you all updated on the status of the items as they go through the process & relate any of the additional features that can & can not be included. We do not anticipate any delays that will prevent us from hitting our planned release date. But we will keep all participants updated with the progress of the items and relate any possible changes and/or delays immediately.
