About this project
The Shadow Lords have been waging war in the depths of the Shadow Realm for thousands of years.
Each model will be cast in gray resin at the highest quality and be shipped as a model kit with some assembly required. They will be boxed with supportive foam ensuring that they are delivered in the best possible condition. As you can see each figure is highly detailed and stands roughly 6 inches or 152mm tall making them perfect for hobby painting, display, and 28-32mm scale table top gaming! If you need a new final boss, a overlord for your cult, or just a new way to wipe the party you've got trapped in the Underworld.. you've come to the right place! They will make perfect Christmas gifts for the gamers, painters, and dungeon masters in your life.
**All models are printed in gray resin - NONE ARE PAINTED**
The project funds 1 Shadow Lord at a time! Basically, the Kickstarter's total goal will cover the complete production costs and ensure the price point for a single model. There are 4 Shadow Lords in total and we will have to reach 400% funding to unlock all 4! Once a stretch goal is unlocked that Shadow Lord will then be available to choose as a reward or Add-On!
Each model or a T-shirt can be added to any pledge level. Simply select your pledge level and in order to add an additional Shadow Lord figurine or an additional T-shirt to your order simply add $75 for a Shadow Lord or $25 for a T-shirt to your pledge! Its that easy! If you want more than one simply multiply the add on price by the number you wish to add and let me know in the Backer Report message at the end of the Kickstarter what the additional funds were for.
Once a Shadow Lord is unlocked more details about them will be released!

As any of my previous backers can tell you I generally like to create monsters! My brain is basically Monster Island and there aren't enough hours in the day to get them all out. The story for this project technically started in 2015 when I lost my grandfather. I had a very difficult time with it. I actually took a break from my art for a while after wrapping up Spawn of Sharktipede which I had already done the majority of the art for by that time. In 2016 I lost 2 more family members and had an additional 2 diagnosed with cancer that would eventually take them both early in 2017. Any time I did any art it had taken a bit of a darker turn. I wasn't making my fun monsters anymore. I found myself sculpting dark creatures, demons, and skulls. I am a very positive and cheery person and something like this was completely out of character for me, but the loss of multiple family members in such a short time had taken a toll on me and I became a shell of myself. Any time I did art it served to release some of my pent up emotion, but it very much drained me like it never had before.
It took me a while, but instead of letting myself fall into some kind of art-related depression I decided to channel this dark energy if I was going to be stuck with it and so the Shadow Lords were born! I sculpted each one with care over the course of the last year and a half with a driving supernatural force behind me.
If you read this far thank you for taking the time to listen to my story. These demons are truly mine. I've struggled with them for over a year and their evolution from dark thoughts in my head to the creatures you see before you has been a long road that started in pain and ended in self discovery and personal growth.
These figures may just look like monsters but they stand for so much more than that. These are the dark thoughts I had at my lowest point. These are the creatures that stalked me from the shadows of my bedroom. They are the physical representation of my pain and anguish that kept me awake many nights over the past few years. I would be honored for my demons to hunt your party members and become raid bosses or summons to fight even stronger enemies! Each backer of this Kickstarter not only gets a really awesome, high quality, limited run figurine but will have a piece of my soul that I poured into making them in the memory of my family.
I attended the Art Institute of Phoenix and earned a degree in Game Art and Design there. I became completely obsessed with the program Zbrush and creature/character design. I started doing contract work for MFV Studios on Hero Clix and I have done work for multiple board games funded by Kickstarter such as: The incredibly successful Shadows of Brimstone, Blackwater Gulch, and The Kings Armory.
I have previously run two successful Kickstarters printing figurines, both of which funded well beyond the goal. Feel free to look at my previous campaigns for an idea of what to expect from Rise of the Shadow Lords.

Risks and challenges
The usual risks and challenges that come with creating a figurine, 3D printing it, and molding/casting duplicates for "mass" production are things I deal with on a regular basis. I have successfully delivered on both of my previous "Sharktipede 2.0" and "Spawn of Sharktipede" Kickstarters as well as a decade of freelance creating miniatures for table top gaming and with that experience I will ensure these new models are shipped in a timely manner and created at the highest quality possible! I will stay in contact at all times with all my backers and keep you up to date on the project and any changes that will arise as well as how I plan to deal with them!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
