This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Sat, March 16 2019 1:08 PM UTC +00:00.
While we are busy at work on the next Dreamwars' expansion set, due to release very soon, we thought we could tempt you all with a brand new line of Dreamwars-themed, high quality resin miniatures, called DREAMWARS CHRONICLES. We are passionate collectors, painters and fans of high quality miniatures but we need your help to make this new line a success! The campaign will be launched with an initial bundle of miniatures. All miniatures will be cast in high quality resin and in 32mm scale. So as to provide all you collectors out there with the best material and the best models for your miniature games! With your contribution, we believe we can also expand the campaign, adding more miniatures, more components and… more free rewards for everybody!
If it’s true that an image speaks louder than any word, let us let these pictures do the talking! We would also thank you in advance for your interest and your kind support.
Shipping costs for all rewards will be charged after the campaign and added in the Pledge Manager. This approach allows us to charge only the actual shipping costs each of you will incur, based on how many miniatures you get. For 10 or more miniatures the shipping price will be that of a DHL Worldwide Shipping, with a delivery time estimated between 3 and 5 days. Online tracking will be provided.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Our team has many years of experience in miniature design and production. We understand that there is no better way to judge the quality of a model than to hold it in your own hand, as the proportions and the details of a model are best experienced in person. Drawing from our experience and employing the best techniques and methods available, we stick to the following principles, in order to achieve the best results for each of our models.
1 - DETAILS - Yes, a rendered image looks great, but how well will it look once painted? We balance details so that they don’t overwhelm the figure, knowing that simple, clean lines will produce better finishing results both in production and painting.
2 - RENDERS - Renders are just the beginning. High quality prototypes of all our models are printed for evaluation after they are initially designed. We thoroughly inspect these test-prints to ensure that details and proportions are as intended before committing them to production.
3 - SCALE - Not too big, nor too small - We want our models to be compatible with the majority of the game systems currently on the market. At the moment, the most common scale is 32mm.
4 - PRODUCTION - It is not easy to produce the high quality of detail that we aim for in resin models. Our knowledge, experience and dedication come together to achieve this goal. A significant part of our success in production starts with the designing process. Clean lines and the right quantity of individual pieces bring to a higher production quality.
5 - MATERIALS - For this project we have selected one of the highest-quality resins available on the market. Our resin will withstand heat and will also be as flexible as possible. All to protect your models from being damaged once deployed on the battlefield.
6 - UNIQUENESS - One thing we've learned is that each model is different and we approach every new piece with the understanding and the expectation that it must be optimized in its unique way. There are so many considerations that come into play, when we approach a new model, but instead of boring you with tons of details, we simply put that experience into our work.
As you could see we made 3D printing tests, the results are very satisfying, but we want to improve the details' yeld, the deeps and proportions, in order to guarantee you a high quality miniatures and the best experience of painting for painters.
The 3D miniatures' final result and their production will be done in collaboration with Heresy Lab that claim a great experience in the production of miniatures.
At the end of Kickstarter's campaign, a post Kickstarter via backerkit, we could suggest you one of the best painters with whom you could make arrangements and contact directly. Once painted, we'll manage shipping in order to deliver you miniatures. For any kind of information, costs and timing contact him directly to the following link: https://www.facebook.com/axiafishpainting/

Risks and challenges
We developed and delivered Dreamwars to 99,9% of our backers without any problem and we participated to several successful crowd-funding projects in the past. Therefore we are confident that all rewards will be successfully delivered. In crowd-funded projects there are always several variables that may escape the initial planning. As a consequence, there is always the possibility of a delay in the delivery. These delays are usually due to last-minute additions of stretch-goal content, new rewards, or delays in the production process, or in the delivery circuit itself, as well as customs-related problems, where the goods are kept for inspection for long periods of time, or due to a delay accumulated by one or more of the producers involved in the project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
