Behold, earthlings! Bask in the dubious glory of The Big, The Bad and the Angry a.k.a. The Galaxy Lords!
My name's James and I am a miniature sculptor (that is, I sculpt miniatures, as opposed to being very tiny). I am looking to raise funds in order to get these three 32mm 'scale' miniatures cast in metal.
If you want to find out more about me or my sculpts, you can find me over at Brass Monkey Games.
Skellie McSkullface [The Bad]
This dastardly villain comes as a 6-part model: body, pistol, staff, sword and two horns (for the staff). He will be cast in high quality metal. Base not included. (Note that I have sculpted a second, less-curly pair of horns, as the ones shown might be a little tricky to cast. They still look badass though)!
Iron Jaw [The Angry]
The dimwitted, but ultra-violent, Iron Jaw comes complete with two arms options - the power claw and machine cannon. He will be cast in high quality metal. Base not included.
Bob the Space Ogre [The Big]
Bob is a rather large fellow, coming in at a whopping 49mm! He is a 6 part miniature. He will be cast in high quality metal. Base not included.
I have a few ideas regarding stretch goals, and I will be providing updates on these when I have them.
In the meantime I can announce that the first stretch goal is Iron Jaw's mantis-hook arm! This stretch goal will be hit at £1k and will be FREE to all backers with an Iron Jaw in their pledge (mainly because Skellie and the Space Ogre don't have much use for an augmetic hook hand).
1st Stretch goal - £1000
The first stretch goal is Iron Jaw's mantis-hook arm! This stretch goal will be hit at £1k and will be FREE to all backers with an Iron Jaw in their pledge (mainly because Skellie and the Space Ogre don't have much use for an augmetic hook hand).
2nd Stretch goal - £2000
The next stretch goal will be hit at £2k, and this will be for backers at the Big, Bad and Angry (£22) pledge level only.
I am currently sculpting Omicron Rho Kappa Omicron (or just Omi for short) as a floating cyber-familiar to help carry Skellie's shopping. He will be FREE to backers at the £22 pledge level! So tell your friends and let's push towards that £2k mark to get you even more goodies!
Here's a WIP photo of Omi...
[Note: Those aren't legs btw, they are where the cloak will be flowing down to attach the mini to the base]
3rd Stretch goal - £3000
The third stretch goal will be hit at £3k, and this will be available to all backers as an add-on for £5.
Below you will see the armature for a fellow who may or may not have a penchant for fringes and furry underpants. He will be an add-on available to all backers at the special price of £5. Shipping will be combined with whatever pledge you have already made, so you do not need to pay any extra shipping. More WIP images coming soon!
Costs for postage & packaging are added to your pledge, as detailed in each individual pledge level. These costs are:
- One miniature (Skellie or Iron Jaw) = UK £1, Rest of the World £4
- One Space Ogre = UK £2, Rest of the World £5
- All three miniatures (the Big, the Bad and the Angry pledge) = UK £3, Rest of the World £7
Miniatures will be packed in baggies, wrapped in bubblewrap and sent in cardboard pip boxes for added protection. Delivery will be via Royal Mail 2nd Class in the UK, or International Standard (not tracked) for International backers. If anyone would like Tracked delivery, please get in touch and I can find out how much this would cost you to your region.
Risks and challenges
This is the second Kickstarter I have been involved with, although it is my first featuring only my miniatures. I will be using the excellent casters at Macrocosm for these models and they have a proven track record of quality and delivery. I have set a sensible, achievable, funding goal that covers all the production costs for these three miniatures, and they should be delivered well before the expected delivery time of July this year.
I do not foresee any major risks. The only challenge would be if the project massively over-funds, but that is a challenge I would thoroughly enjoy!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
