About

The Campaign

My name is Andrew May, for the last couple of years I have been working as a freelance miniatures sculptor, creating wargaming figures for several well know companies plus private collectors. In addition I run my own miniatures business "Meridian Miniatures". I have found Kickstarter to be an excellent way of launching new miniature ranges to the general public without interfering with my busy schedule of freelance sculpting. So now I return with my latest project: Terramortis, heroic scaled gothic sci fi miniatures.

The Miniatures

Shown below are the initial miniatures, either as pre production resin castings or my original sculpted masters. These are my most ambitious figures to date, created over the last year, combining digital modeling with traditional hand sculpting. In each of my previous campaigns I have tried to avoid leaving to much ambiguity between the miniatures promised and the actual product you will recieve, where possible I try to avoid relying on renders and "concept art". Some "stretch goals" to aim for during this campaign will be illustrated using digital renders and I may throw in the odd sketch to show an idea or concept but feel I have built up the reputation for delivering on promises by this stage that you won't be disappointed.

I have been running an online store for the last 9 months and have built up strong relationships with my casting partners, I know how much figures will retail for and what I can offer them to you for  as rewards, this is the tightest budget that I've had to work with so far, quality has been stepped up in both the sculpting and the casting but I have still managed to give plenty of incentives to pledge towards the funding of their production. By funding the moulding and casting en everything in one large I can afford to offer higher level rewards at a reduced amount compared to their final retail cost and working with my shipping partners I can make further savings to pass on to you. See rewards section for details.

Add Ons.

If you wish to add models on you may do so by selecting the appropriate amount from the rewards section and adjusting your pledge level. For instance if you wish to add an extra five man squad to your pledge the simply adjust your total pledge up by £15 or say you wanted an extra Lord miniature then just adjust your total pledge up by £9.50, no extra postage required.

The Game

The figures shown above form the core forces that you need to play a game of my new developing game system Terramortis. I combines a lot of ideas that I have been working on since completeing my first game system "Steam and Aether". I will be sharing concepts and rule mechanics as updates during the campaign's progress with a PDF beta set going online to all backers for free shortly after.

The Setting.

Terramortis is an apocalyptic sci fi setting, your forces batting for supremacy over the ruins of a once glorious world.

No-one alive remembers how the war began, or how it ended. All they know is that the Earth – Terra – was once very different. Mankind had succeeded in taming the planet, transforming its surface into a vast civilisation of gleaming spires and terraformed splendour. But all that is gone now, ground to so much ash. From its ruins, a grim caste of men has arisen – warriors intent on claiming a barren world for their own. The war for Terramortis has begun anew – a war without end. 

I will be sharing the back story of Terramortis in the campaign updates as the project prgresses. All backers will receive a free PDF of the backstory shortly after the campaign ends.

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk involved in my project. Once any additional sculpting is finished it is a case of having the moulds made and castings produced. It is possible that there will be complications with moulding or postal service but nothing that will delay me significantly. I feel I have developed an excellent reputation for fulfilling KS campaigns at this stage, feel free to browse my past campaigns updates.
