Snappy Stencils is a new product we have designed to help people when painting their miniatures. The idea came about when Jay was painting a tank for the "get it painted" DVD series and he needed a stencil to do some digital camo. He had to resort to using a piece of card which he then cut some very basic shapes and the result ended up being pretty good. So we decided we would improve on the design and create some more but in a more durable form, thus Snappy Stencils was born!
The stencils are cut into 3mm HDF which is strong and durable which means you can use them time and time again, this is fantastic as most stencils have one or two uses in them before they become useless.
The kickstarter is going to start with 15 designs available for just £25! However we have scope for 100's of different designs and shapes depending on its popularity, and we are more than happy to receive suggestions on designs you guys would like to see in a stencil format. The designs that will be open for selection initially are as follows.
Hexagonal/Carbon fibre small
Hexagonal/Carbon fibre medium
Hexagonal/Carbon fibre large
Dragon scales Large
Dragon Scales Medium
Dragon Scales Small
Digital Camo (Urban)
Freestyle Flames tool
Digital Camo (Pixels/squares)
Diamond (Harlequin grid)
With TTCombat's Snappy Stencils you can turn a good paint job into an amazing paint job with very little effort, just hold the stencil as close to the miniature as possible (the flatter the surface the better the effect) and spray away, it really couldn't be easier. That means there is no masking, no teadious cutting of tape to get that "perfect shape". The stencils themselves are precision cut by a laser so you couldn't get a finer more exact cut.
TTCombat's Snappy Stencils are designed to be affordable hence the RRP being just £3, which as is as much as a small pot of paint. The idea being that when you go and buy your paints you can just as easily pick up the stencil thats relevant to the project your doing. Above is a picture of the dragon scale stencil being used which would be perfect for a salamanders player, you can give your vehicles that little extra something with some cool dragon scales which will leave your friends in awe!
We really hope you like the idea of this project and decide to back us. Everyone who pledges should receive their stencils within a couple of weeks after the kickstarter has finished, so early January you could have that stencil you have always needed and in a re-usable form!

Risks and challenges
There really is no risk, we stated that there was no risk in our last kickstarter campaign (Get it painted) and we were 100% honest, that particular project is running ahead of schedule and on the verge of completion. The reason there is no risk is because we already have everything we need to make this product a reality, we just need an idea of popularity so we know which designs need to be produced more than others. If the kickstarter ends up being more popular then we had originally imagined then we will purchase additional laser cutters to help get the product to you sooner rather than later!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
