Our "Core Funding Group" consists of 20 creatures from the Kobold Press universe. Many of these are already in our hands and have had casts made of them. Funding this Kickstarter will not only allow us to pay for licensing for these miniatures, but will also pay for further molding and casting costs.
These miniatures will also be produced as 28mm scale, unpainted pewter, with the exception of the very large pieces such as any dragons that might get unlocked.
STRETCH GOAL PROGRESS SO FAR!
CORE FUNDING GROUP:
SAMPLES OF CONCEPT TO MINIATURE:
WHO WE ARE: Effincoolminis.com is a small Ohio based miniatures company and casting facility. John and Phillip have been life long role-players and wargamers with a serious itch when it comes to minis. We own our own casting facility for both 100% lead free pewter and resin.

Q-How do I get "X" miniature?
A-Once you have pledged to a group, increase your pledge by adding the $ value of a miniature to your pledge amount total. Once the Kickstarter has finished we will send a survey to get the details of which miniatures you want to receive as your rewards for your pledge.
Q-What size are these miniatures?
A-The miniatures are scaled based on a humanoid or Medium sized creature being 28mm from foot to eye level.
Q-Will these miniatures also be available in resin or plastic?
A-At this time the only items that are planned to be made in resin are the 2 dragons. Doing the rest of the project in resin will only delay the delivery of rewards.
Q-When do you expect to ship the rewards?
A-This answer hinges on how many stretch goals get unlocked. We have many of the Core Funding miniatures in hand and ready to go, but sculpting miniatures takes time. If this project unlocks all 40 of the Stretch Goals, then the fulfillment will take much longer. We are allowing for October of next year to cover ourselves, but realistically it should not take anywhere near that long!
Q-How will I be billed for shipping?
A-At the completion of the project you will receive a survey from Backerkit. Once that is complete and your package is ready to be shipped you will be emailed a link to purchase shipping from our website Effincoolminis.com.
Q-What can I expect for United States shipping charges?
A-Our experience is that Priority Shipping is the best method for domestic miniature shipping. The rates for Priority are given at USPS.com and will vary based on the number of miniatures you are getting. We anticipate that this project at 60 miniatures should fit in a Medium Priority box.
Q-What can I expect for foreign shipping charges?
A-We hunt for the best possible shipping rates for each of our projects. Having said that, foreign shipping is very tough to estimate, as we do not have finished weights on many of these models.
Q-How does this project differ from the Midgard Miniatures Kickstarter.
A- First of all, we are not affiliated with Eastern Front Miniatures in any way. Because we are aware of that project we have specifically avoided producing anything that was/is slated for that project.
Risks and challenges
This is our 4th miniatures project, and we have learned some things... :-)
While we still feel the risks on the miniatures production side are minimal since unlike most miniatures companies on Kickstarter, we own our own casting facility for both 100% lead free pewter and resin. This allows us to produce finished product without having to wait on a third party's production schedule, which can delay any project.
However, we have discovered that as our project grows delays may occur. We still use both traditionally sculpted miniatures and 3D digital pieces which we print in house, and our sculptors have been at work on this project for about a year. We're already very invested in this project, but it's going to take Community backing to help move us forward. We are counting on YOU!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
