# incoming transmission.....zzzzt....crackle...."Hear me puny Earthlings!
I, General Squamous, intend to liberate you from your pink, fleshy overlords and institute a new reign of amphibian greatness on your delightfully damp planet! Sadly our Phrogg civilisation is not what it once was, our planetary empire is in decline and our interstellar cruisers are in a lamentable state. Croak! This is where you can help, by providing us with your shiny Earth gold we can train and equip squads of Phrogg troopers to conquer your world and usher in a new era of benign, warty dictatorship. You can become a part of the new Phrogg empire and help us rebuild our warfleet on your very own planet! Sign up today, ribbit! ...zzzt..... #transmission end.
The aim of this
project is to produce a brand new range of 28mm scale sci-fi amphibian
miniatures. They are firmly of the old school style, green sculpted,
rubber moulded and cast in metal. These miniatures measure over 35mm
tall and will represent serious
opposition, even for power armoured troops. They will retail for at
least £4 per miniature.
We plan to use this kickstarter to get the range off to a great start with 10 miniatures. they are available in pledges of 5 trooper squads or a larger platoon of 10 troops. All will be variant poses.
We are asking for £1,500 but we have incorporated a mini stretch goal
at £1,000. Once we pass the £1k mark each 5 trooper squad will have one
member upgraded to carry a support weapon at no extra cost.
EDIT- the squads now include a heavy weapon upgrade.
The Poison dart frog pledge will get a rocket launcher and the fire bellied toad pledge will get a flamer.
The Bullfrog pledge platoon of 10 will get both support weapons.
If we are fortunate enough to reach our funding goal the majority of
stretch goals will be available as add-ons, but if there are to be any
potential free stretch bonuses, they will start at the Bullfrog pledge
EDIT- Since the project is now funded available add-ons are listed below and in update #4.
ADD-ONS and Stretch Goal #1
Backers that have pledged at Poison dart frog / Fire Bellied Toad or higher are elligible to add extra miniatures to their pledges. To select an add-on simply increase your pledge by the required amount and when the kickstarter ends we will send out a survey to collect your list of additions. Just under the green bar to the right is a blue button that says 'manage', if you click on this it will allow you to increase your pledged amount.
Each of these add-ons is available at the Kickstarter exclusive price of £3.00
The first Add-on is also our first stretch goal- you can purchase the Sergeant for the kickstarter exclusive price of £3.00 but if we reach our first stretch at £2,000 all backers at Bullfrog level and above will receive one free of charge!
You can also take additional 10 trooper squads, (that include a launcher and flamer) for the kickstarter exclusive price of £35.00
Risks and challenges
We have been making metal miniatures for around 15 years, all mouldmaking and casting will be done in house we just need your help to get the range started, to cover the sculpting and material costs.
This kickstarter will allow us to produce the Phroggs much sooner than would otherwise be the case, with the potential to grow the range as soon as possible.
We have kept postage as low as we can. We ship parcels worldwide every week as part of our mail order business so delivery won't be a problem.
There is plenty of contingency time added into the expected delivery date, we feel there is every possibility of delivering early.
