Bog's Mushies...

I wanted mushroom men for my favorite table top games. I sketched out the army and brought in the right people to bring it from paper to tabletop. Now, I want to bring it from my tabletop to yours.

 I have enough prints and equipment to do small runs for myself and friends, but I want to offer Bog's Mushies to everyone, as well as expand upon the models I have.

Let's meet the Mushies!

Models are urethane plastic resin, but have been metalized and highlighted to show detail. All models will ship unpainted and unassembled.

Sporelings: The first of the Mushroom Men. The low level mushie solider. Designed to represent all the underlings of a Mushroom army. 

$15 for bodies with caps and 25mm round bases. You will receive them in 2 poses with 4 cap varieties, randomized.

*Expect bonus items and miniatures with this set.

Models are 28mm Heroic scale. I tried to be conscious of base size and scaled the basic infantry so they would fit the ubiquitous 1" Round base. Large mushies fit a 40-50mm round base. All sets ship with round bases.

I designed the caps to be interchangeable between size levels to allow for more customization and variation. I also designed them in a way where they can be angled to suit your desires, and are incredibly convenient to paint since they come separate from the mushroom bodies.

Special Thanks:

Special thanks to Aaron Duneman who provided the 3D prints to make the molds for all of the models for my Kickstarter. His extensive knowledge and experience with 3D printing was critical to capturing the high detail of my minis and the incredible quailty of the end product. Aaron was an asset to this project by quickly printing high quality models and advising on improvements. His knowledge covers areas of miniatures, mechanical engineering, medical prototyping, and jewelry, to name a few.  Aduneman@originplans.com

Ultra Special Thanks:

Ultra Special thanks to all of you and to the Kings of War Fanatics facebook page for inspiring me to make the army in the first place. Thank you so much for your support!!

Risks and challenges

I've spent the last 6 months designing, printing, fine tuning and casting Bog's Mushies. It has been a lot of fun and with my years of experience with casting, painting, and design, I feel like I've really been able to put together a fantasy army with a lot of fun characters.

I need to invest in some equipment to expand my production capabilities, and pay for tons of additional prints so I can make my production molds off of 3D printed masters.

There are also some cavalry, hero, and monster Mushis I'd like to produce as well, but need additional funding to complete.
