The Ayame Battlesuit Mecha miniature will be produced in a multipart resin kit and stands an impressive 70mm tall once built making it useful for many table top games.
We have already had the renders translated into 3d prints and produced master castings and are now seeking funding to push the Ayame and all it variants into production.
The initial campaign will seek to fund the basic Ayame model and then stretch to fund the command and assault suit variants bringing even more firepower to the tabletop.
To help you help us we are offering free worldwide shipping with all pledges.

Shipping - Shipping is always a concern, so we are offering free worldwide to help you help us.
Shipping Dates - Whilst we will do our very best to meet our estimated shipping dates there is always the potential with a project of this type where the required quantities involved by all the backers may exceed expectations. If this is the case we will work to keep backers informed of our progress through regular updates and expedite the work to completion.
Campaign management - Critical Mass Games has successfully completed the ZAS 15mm Mercs Campaign. This project funded at over 700% of it's initial target, it taught us many things regarding the running of a Kickstarter campaign.
The project was completed and delivered to all our backers in a timely fashion.
