Welcome to my third Kickstarter campaign: Fantasy Fighters!
This project brings to life 8 new Heroic miniatures suitable for a variety of Tabletop wargames and Dungeon Crawlers. Like my previous projects, moulding and testing has taken place prior to the start of the campaign to minimise risks and ensure fast dispatch of rewards.
EDIT: - NOW WITH ADDED FREE MINIATURE STRETCH GOALS!
Traditionally hand sculpted and moulded, these miniatures have been mastered in resin before being cast in metal. There are a limited number of resin casts available from the initial master mould - once these are gone though, there'll be no more!
A number of top sculptors have contributed to this range: Tim Prow, Bob Olley, Lewis Collins, Sergus and Bobby Jackson - they're named under their sculpts in the pictures below.
The height of each miniature in mm to the eye and weight is displayed under each figure.
Weight: 20g Height 32mm to eye. Sculptor: Lewis Collins

All miniatures will be bubblewrapped and sent in sturdy cardboard boxes to prevent transit damage.
Weights of the sets are noted on the pledge levels and underneath the pictures of the individual minis. To have an approximate idea of the shipping cost, simply add up the weight of your order and compare it to the table below.
Standard shipping is at buyers risk but proof of postage will be retained for a claim in the unlikely event the package goes missing. Tracking details for tracked parcels will be sent upon dispatch.

Risks and challenges
The only potential risks I see occur with a high number of pledges. If the campaign runs into hundreds of orders then this would normally cause a delay at the end with packing time.
After speaking with my caster, I can mitigate this by casting and packing sets as the project matures. This way, in the event of a very successful campaign, there should not be any delay to the shipping.
(My past two projects shipped exactly on time, 3 weeks after the project ended)
