 Hi Everyone, I’m Roj of Moonkraft Games, I have been a sculptor, model maker and scratch builder since the early nineties.     

After a successful 1st kickstarter project earlier in the year I am back with a second.  

This time I am looking to extend my existing range of 28mm scenic bases with 3 further lines. I already make bases as part of my business and have paved bases, lava bases etc. along with various bits of terrain in my range already. 

Moonkraft is a fairly new start up and I am looking to add many many more goodies to what I already sell. I have a brain overflowing with ideas, the only trouble is deciding which to do 1st.  

If you are like me and are a miniature painter and gamer, then you already know that a good base will give you miniature the finish you want and can really make or break a good bit of painting. Also this bit of modelling can be a little tedious and time consuming and if you are painting a new army those minutes soon add up and turn into hours.  

I have created 3 new sets of bases, Rocky outcrops, Skulls and Rocks and my personal favourite Atlantian Temple Ruins. I need to raise just £500 for the moulding costs to produce all 3 of these sets of bases. which I will add to my growing range of terrain and bases. 

The bases were sculpted by myself and I have made them in 3 sizes, 25mm, 30mm & 40mm so they should fit all the sizes you require.  

The pictures don't do them justice.

I do things the old fashioned way, no 3D printing or computer software, I build and sculpt, then I make moulds, then I cast. If necessary there may be a 2nd mould made to improve casting after any adjustments have been made, but this is a rarity as I am an old hand at the process.  

The funds will be used for the silicone to make the molds (the expensive bit) and also go towards the resin. 

Postage. We will be shipping the set out as soon as the funds come in and the prices are set to the following 3 zones: UK, Europe & Rest of World. Prices are based on Royal Mail to calculate the cost.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
I have been making moulds and casting resin for years and have modeled these in a way that they should be easy to cast and I am fully set up with a lovely (but noisy) vacuum chamber and am confident that it will be easy to do a great job. Bases really are my bread and butter it’s what I do.

I will be using Royal Mail to ship the sets out to backers I have never had an issue with deliveries before.
Obviously if the project gets really popular there might be slight delays in shipping due to workload but it will really have to go ballistic for it to be too much to handle & I don't expect that to be the case.
