About this project

We are potentially funded!!

Stretch Goals and Rewards

We hit the first overfunding goal of $350. I’ll include a sidekick model in the initial release.  He will be included in the rewards for all Super Villain and up backers, and be an option for any of our other supporter to fill out their ranks.

We also hit the second Stretch Goal, so I'll also include a guarding goon that matches the other henchmen on offer.  This will be a great piece for your games where you need sentries or men just standing impressively and looking tough. He will be included in the rewards for all Super Villain and up backers, and be an option for any of our other supporter to fill out their ranks.

So I suppose a new stretch goal is in order.  If we reach $5300, I'll include a command henchman in the initial release.  He'll fit nicely with the other henchman and be a great lackey to make sure the boss's orders are carried out.  You'll be able to tell who's in charge.  

He will be included in the rewards for all Super Villain and up backers, and be an option for any of our other supporter to fill out their ranks.

The Project

Super Heroes you can modify?  Villains to suit your needs?  Henchmen built to fit you unique villain?  Let's make it happen!

What We are Going to Make for You

Our vision is to produce 8 Heroes/Villains with three head options apiece (for a total of 8 models and 24 different heads).  The heads will be generally universal to bodies of the same general size.  We also plan a unit of four henchman with three head options apiece, so that's three different types of henchmen from the same body.

A special treat for our kickstarter supporters will be the inclusion of all three heads for each model.  After the kickstarter is over, models will be sold with only one head option.

Eh?

We'd love to bring a fantastic new range of Super Hero miniatures to the public.  Many of those available today are the Intellectual Property of large companies.  We'd like to change that by sculpting and producing high quality Super Hero Miniatures that you can bring to life yourself. 

Ever spent time looking for the perfect Super Villain but couldn't find exactly what you were looking for?  How about coming up with the perfect Super Hero but all you could find were different version of the big names in comic books?  Now is your chance to make this happen.

Old School Hero

One body, many heads, endless possibilities.

We are envisioning a range of modifiable Super Heroes, Villains and Henchmen to fill the voids found all over the comic universe.  When possible, our miniatures will have interchangeable heads so you can personalize them to your own tastes.  Think that hero would look better with a full face mask?  How about some wings on the side of his head?  What would he look like with an old school eye mask?

Super Soldier with Different Head Options

Henchmen Too

Our Henchmen will fit the bill as well.  First we'll create some universal bodies that will work will in many different situation, then we'll produce a number of different heads so you can create the perfect Henchmen for your Super Villains. Need hooded minions?  How about hard hats?  Masks and helmets? We are going to bring some flexible muscle to the table with these guys.  

If we raise more money than our goal, expect more henchmen with the initial release and a slew of new heads.

Henchman with Good and Evil Head Options

Get Involved and Bring Your Desires to Life

To take this even further, our artist will collaborate with up to 9 lucky supporters to create a Hero or Villain from their imagination.  
  • Benevolent Overlord - 3 supporters will work with us to create figures that will go into production.  You give us the concept and a few uniform pointers and our sculptor will create his interpretation of your instructions and one head option.  We'd like to make you as happy as possible, but we will retain some creative control on the final product.  Want total control? Go for Intergalactic Megalomaniacal Overlord.
  • Intergalactic Megalomaniacal Overlord - 6 supporters will communicate with the artist and receive his best interpretation of the instructions you send him and receive a One-Of-a-Kind miniature!  This could be a character you have envisioned years ago or any character you would like!  Our only requirements are that it's a 28-30mm figure roughly man sized.  Other than that, bring your imagination to life and get some fun stuff while you're doing it.  If you'd like to share your creation with the world, and we like your concept, we can talk about putting him into production and then you will receive 10 miniatures of your creation to hoard or share with friends.
Villains

Our Appeal to You

To show what is possible, we have created these three super hero/villain bodies and one henchman body with three heads apiece.  We need the help of the Kickstarter supporters to pay for the rest of the sculpting, producing molds, and the initial cost of the metal for the Kickstarter production run.

  • The material that the sculptor uses to create the model is that color. When produced they will be in a lead free white metal. People generally paint the models themselves or have them painted.
