* Update 2/11/14
We've now Unlocked THREE Stretch Goals and updated Add-Ons! Details below.
I unleashed Kaiju Kaos - The Miniatures Game on the public in May 2011 with downloadable rules and stats at WargameVault.com and official miniatures at AchesonCreations.com. Fast-forward to July 2012 when I decided I wanted to take Kaiju Kaos into the designer toy market with original minifigure designs that are fully compatible with the regular line of metal and resin gaming miniatures. It was at that time that I commissioned the super-talented Steven Patt of Papagrim Toys to create the initial set of minifigs, and consequently, Kaiju Kaos: Smackdown was born.
It is my hope that this project will appeal to both the gaming community that birthed Kaiju Kaos and also the designer toy community that has already embraced Kaiju Kaos: Smackdown in its limited release.
Each design is handmade and ready to hand-cast in durable urethane plastic. Each will be made in a Kickstarter-exclusive Vivid Slime green color that looks fantastic straight out of the moulds but can also be easily primed and painted for personalization. (Vivid Slime resin dye by Monster Kolor.) Your support will enable us to take these sculpts and put them into production.
Over the past year I have commissioned additional designs to round out our initial 12 characters presented in this project. Each sculpt is approximately 50mm tall and is able to be placed on a 40mm round base for game play. Your support will enable us to take these sculpts and put them into production.
Every supporter of this project will be able to choose exactly which characters you want from “The Fourteen” shown in the video and detailed below. Designs can be chosen in any combination from 1 of each to an army of 13 of the same sculpt, or something in-between. You decide!
In addition to choosing what characters you want, EVERYONE who pledges $1.00 or more will receive a FREE coupon code to download Kaiju Kaos: Smackdown Stat Sheets for every figure released in this project... even if we don't get funded! The coupon code will be for a FREE PDF download at WargameVault.com (so you'll have to be registered there to use it).
In addition to figures and free Stat Sheets, we have the following Add-Ons that can be included with most pledge levels. Add-Ons are a great way to get more of what you want and also help us meet our goal.
If you would like to add any of the following items to your pledge, please be sure to include the product code and quantity desired in a Message and I will confirm all Add-Ons once the project is over.

Risks and challenges
Acheson Creations has been in the business of making high-quality tabletop terrain since May 2000. Despite our longevity and experience, we are a small company with limited resources and personnel. If this Kickstarter is successful, it will take some time to hand-pour each and every item (and that's after making every mould). Fortunately, we now consider ourselves to be experienced at successfully running projects such as this and we have tried to account for the labor time involved in our estimated shipping dates. We have shipped all rewards from our American Frontier project. We are over two months ahead of schedule on shipping rewards for our Fantasy Worlds project, having shipped nearly 1/3 of the rewards already. And, apart from the highest Stretch Goals, we have all the sculpts and moulds completed. In addition, the sculpts for "The Twelve" are already in hand and ready to go into production (as are many of the potential Stretch Goal figures).Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
