About

What is this project's goal?

This project's goal is to help make D&D more immersive with hand painted figures that are colored to your specifications to truly bring your adventurer to life.  If this project interests you then I invite you to stay a while and listen.  Safe travels adventurers.

How did this idea start?

I thought of this idea not too long ago while playing D&D with my friends.  I had started painting figures a little under a year ago.  I started painting because at that time I was looking for a way to make my D&D experience more immersive.  I decided that a good way to do that would be with figures.  I scoured online for painted figures but found a very limited selection of them and all the ones I did find were painted to the painters choice and rather expensive.  I wanted one that looked like how l imagined my adventurer looked so I found an unpainted one and painted it myself.  I realized I had a knack for figure painting and ended up painting several other figures for friends.  Recently one of my fellow dungeon delvers said I should start selling my painted figures but I didn't know how to start.  That's when I thought about this project.

Whats the plans for the future?

If this project is a success my plan for the future is to build a website where you can purchase these figures and of course have them custom painted.  With the website I plan on extending the options for painting into objects, creatures, and NPCs.  Further down the road I also plan on looking into crafting dungeon tiles and offering them for purchase as I have also looked into those and found them to be sparse and expensive.  I may even look into crafting customized figures as well, once again further down the road.  It all comes down to whether this project is successful or not.

Figure List:

Here is a link to the list of figures offered by Wizkids=  https://wizkids.com/upm/ 

On that site there are many figures but for this project I am limiting it to just these figures(don't worry it's still a large selection).

In the list I have the figures class and race and the number you can type in to look at that specific one.  Each one has two different figures under its title.  I would personally recommend typing the race you want into the search bar so you can thoroughly examine what there is available and because some of them have the same name but different genders.

Additional details.

The timeline is a bit long with everything set to arrive in May of 2019 however that is more of a receive by this date.  I set it a bit longer just in case there are issues along the way.  I will be sending out the orders as I complete them.  I will be running orders in the order they were received via the survey.

The figure painting includes the colors you choose, detailing, washes, and a polymer finish if you would like.  If or when this project gets funded I will let you know when I have started with your order and give you updates as they get completed, having you verify the colors are to your liking before doing the poly coat.  During the process you will have the opportunity to make 2 changes to your original choice whether it be color, wash, or color placement.

I have also been the DM for our group of adventurers and over the years of our playing I have created most of our campaigns from scratch including maps and story arcs.  Throughout this project I will be sharing some of the maps and stories that I have used If anyone is interested or looking for ideas for your own campaign.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge I face is the timeline. The timeline I made was set based off of all the pledges being filled with extra wiggle room for any issues that may arise. The only other challenge I fear I may face is delays in receiving the figures for me to start painting however i feel the timeline left enough room to accommodate that.
