About

Who: Hello, I'm Red Rogers. I am the creator, designer and sculptor for Nemisphere.

What: Nemisphere is a 32mm science fiction miniature line. It features human forces collectively known as Forcecon against the robotic artificial intelligent forces of the Decrypte. If you had to quantify the range you could say at its core it is HALO VS Terminator. Different sci-fi troops versus a number of diverse robots.

Scale: 32mm to the top of the head. Here is a scale chart for all the Nemisphere Units and initial stretch goals in this Kickstart.

Miniature Material: What are the miniatures made of? Spin cast plastic. Tough, slightly flexible, glues together rock solid with any standard super glue.

What miniatures are included in the initial Kickstart?
There are two units in the initial Kickstart. The Forcecon Assault Soldiers and Assault Soldier SAW's.

As I am sure you have already noted, most of my miniatures are detailed and others are highly detailed. As I have done quite a bit of 3d printing, the translation works fine into 3d print. Generally speaking the smaller fine details will not show up on the 3d print at all. If they do it is unlikely the minute (pron: my-newt) detail will survive the master molding process as well as the production molding process. This is no different than looking at a object then backing away from it. Details will become smaller until they eventually disappear and you are left with stronger base shapes. This is exactly how 3d printing works with large and small details.

This means that the majority of the larger, stronger shapes and details on the miniatures will show up and the others will vanish in the process of creation. Why then do I spend quite a bit of time sculpting details that are generally non-worthwhile to the end product? This is generally done to add visual fidelity to the 3d art and 3d turnarounds and enhance the overall artistic presentation of my work and minis.

Old Forcecon Print Test

 Above is an older print test of a recon version with lots of packs for the Forcecon Assault Soldier. I was playing with the idea of separate heads etc but it felt to finicky and a bit pointless with slight left to right variances, so I decided to just include the heads with the body. Nonetheless this is an example of what I was talking about above and how 3d details translate into 3d print.

Risks and challenges

The production timeline for the initial four sets of miniatures is a safe and sound 5 months. If you purchase any stretch goal miniatures, your collective shipment date will be that of the latest stretch goal miniature you have adjusted your pledged for, as opposed to the shipment date of the original four Forcecon units.

To expedite the process in which the Nemisphere Miniatures are printed, molded, cast and shipped to you, all miniatures in this Kickstart are already sculpted and are 100% ready to send to the 3d printer right now.

This includes all stretch goal miniatures as well. There will be no back and forth design process, receiving concepts nor changes sent to the sculptor. As I am the creator, designer and sculptor for Nemisphere this process is completely internal and has already been completed to get these miniatures made in a timely manner.

As a side note, this will also affect miniature production in the future, as again, the process will be greatly streamlined with no constant back and forth interaction between multiple parties to constantly produce miniatures.

I have talked with my miniature caster and he will definitely have more time available in about 2 months after this Kickstart finishes to jump head first into the Nemisphere Miniatures.

It is my hope that if you enjoy my work and the general idea and direction for my game that you may consider pledging in the Nemisphere Kickstart. Again, I am Red Rogers, and thank you for viewing and considering my Kickstart.
