Newly Cast Bust
Newly Cast Bust

 

 In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. 

Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored.

The Lawgiver bust is a high quality, vacuum & pressure cast, resin model. It is 65 mm high and 80 mm wide, and is comprised of six pieces: the body, two arms, the halo, the mask strap, and the name plate. It is an easy to assemble and easy to paint item, worthy of honor in any collector's display. This Kickstarter is for the complete bust but you will need to provide your own base.

Here are some additional photos of the bust for this Kickstarter. The Sculptor -  Francesco Pizzo - has done an unbelievable job helping bring the CotW world to life. Francesco has truly invested heavily into this project and has done breathtaking work for us. He is a sculptor, 3D sculptor and illustrator and has been working with Boyd's Toys for several years. His credits also include work for Dust Studio, Megalith Games Ltd, Manic Games Ltd, Grindhouse Games, White Dragon Miniatures and more. I consider Francesco a personal friend and valued business associate. May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt did a great job of bringing the figure to life with her detailed artistry and specialization in painting busts. She took the realism of this figure to the next level and was an excellent communicator and pleasure to work with. We highly recommend her painting services.

For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures.

 

 

Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

 

Shipping in the United States will be free and the rest of the world will be $10. If you just order the limited edition figure it is $5 shipping in the US and $10 World Wide.

Risks and challenges

The risks to the project are quite minimal. The sculpt is complete. We do our own production in resin and we have been casting our own game pieces for over 18 months. Our last project was to help complete a failed Indiegogo project that a producer got left holding the bag when it came to production. We are not putting a cap on the number of busts or figures that can be purchased, but demand is unpredictable and unforeseen circumstances may extend delivery. We will update everyone of progress on a weekly basis.
