GN:W - Warrior and Spirit Beast Models
This project will add to the 28mm miniature line based on the real life native cultures of the Americas and the Pacific and their myths
Going Native: Warpath is a miniatures based table top strategy game that focuses on the native cultures of the Americas and the Pacific. Two years ago, I launched a successful Kickstarter to create a game and a new and exciting line of Native American and Polynesian models. During the campaign, I ended up creating more miniatures then I could produce with the funds that I collected. The main goal with this campaign is to raise the money to send all of the models I have in to production. All models presented during this campaign will be cast in white metal in order to maintain the highest quality and quickest delivery.
I have great news for those who are looking for gifts for their loved ones for this Christmas, all of the models and kits listed as done below will ship before the holiday. The models listed as new will likely ship after the holiday season, due to the time needed to create the greens (pre-production model) and ship them in from the region of the world the sculptor lives.
The models are split in to two groups: warrior and spirit beasts. Warrior models are human models that are based on the different cultures of the Americas and the Pacific. Spirit Beasts are the mythical creatures and monsters that appear in the stories of these native peoples. After the main funding goal is reached, new warriors and spirit beasts will be added to the campaign as we rise above the funding goal.
Similar to other campaigns, this Kickstarter will run off a point system. You get points from the pledge level you picked and you can spend the points any way you see fit on the product listed below.
Here are larger pictures of the models listed above -
Stretch Goal # 1 - $7000 - Ewah - Locked
Ewah is a woman who disguised herself in the skin of a cougar to spy on the men of the tribe, as they sat around the campfire with their wolf brothers, and told sacred stories on a hunting trip. When the woman was discovered, the tribe's Shaman or Medicine Man punished her by transforming her into a half-woman, half-cat creature.
Stretch Goal # 2 - $8000 - Capelobo - Locked
The Capelobo is a sad creature that was once a lonely and forgotten human that the Amazon Jungle has claimed and reshaped in to a this vampiric monster that now wanders the jungle it now serves.
Risks and challenges
The risks are very limited. Most of the models that are listed as done are already in the hands of the caster. Where they will make master and production molds for all of the models. When the models are cast, they are sent back to me and I sort them and then send them out to you folks.
Now the models that are not yet sculpted, like the Piasa above, will take some time to get in to your hands. It has to be sculpted, then has to be sent to me for inspection, then I send it to the caster for casting, then it comes back to me for sorting and packaging, and then it goes out to you. Like I stated above there is a chance that allot of the unlocked models will ship after the December deadline.
One of the problems I had with the last Going Native Kickstarter was lack of packaging and presentation when it came to the models. While I had no control over that part the fulfillment process, I have fixed that problem. I have simple packaging on hand right now and I will be getting clamshell blisters as soon as the funds allow. So that should address the packaging problem.
With all of the forethought I have this campaign and all the lessons have learned from previous Kickstarter campaigns, this all model KS should run smoothly and without incident.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
