The Project

Hello guys, firstly thanks for checking out my project, I really do appreciate your time!

I am funding today for the 3D printing, master molding and production molding of the Thaumaturge bust along with production molds for the 35mm and 75mm scale miniatures. 

The prints and resin masters for the 35mm and 75mm have already been funded through my savings, below is an example of the resin casts and an example paint job by yours truly, note, I do not concider myself a great painter by any means but I cannot afford to pay a professional currently! I do hope though it gives an idea of what the finished miniature could look like.

*All miniatures will be supplied unpainted and require minor assembly.

These 3 miniatures are the first step in turning my vision into a reality and will help support the development of further miniatures and ultimately bring a new game to the tabletop. 

As an individual this is going to be a struggle - I have no foothold in the industry, I do not have the backing of a large established company or access to mainstream financial lending.

I am undertaking as much of the process as I can up to the point of the physical 3D printing and resin production process which will be handled by a well known and highly respected bunch of chaps here in the UK.

Thank you again for taking your time to check out my project, please feel free to ask me any questions either through Kickstarter or via instagram; @thronedowngames :)

The Pledges

Level 1: 35mm plus 25% lifetime brand discount* - £9.00 

Level 2: 75mm OR Bust plus 25% lifetime brand discount*  - £24.00

Level 3: 35mm + 75mm OR Bust plus 25% lifetime brand discount*  - £31.00

Level 4: 35mm + 75mm AND Bust plus 25% lifetime brand discount*  - £48.00

No early bird?

After long deliberation I have decided not to go for an early bird discount, my reasons behind this are that I believe anyone who is wanting to support me should be offered the same value for their money as any other person wanting to support me at any given time, to that end I have devised a pricing structure that balances a return on my products that I can justify with (hopefully) accessible prices for you guys especially for the larger scale models as these can quickly become very expensive.

I have however decided to give all supporters for this project a lifetime brand discount as an extra big thank you for supporting me in this critical time of my business, again this is a discount I can justify for all supporters and not just a quick few.

 I hope this explains why there are no early bird offers for this project.

*lifetime brand discount will only be on offer through this Kickstarter as an extra thank you for supporters during this critical time in my business.

You will be issued with a unique code to use on my webstore once it is up and running (estimated for April 2019) for future purchases, the discount will also  be useable on future Kickstarter projects, more details on claiming the discount will be available with future projects.

*I reserve the right to withdraw the discount should abuse of the code be detected, the code is for your personal use only and should not be distributed or shared in any fashion without prior written concent.

Shipping

Shipping will be charged when making your pledge and will be charged at a flat rate detailed below, any postage excess will be supplemented by myself on this occasion. Any import duty or customs charges however will be your responsibility.

UK: £3

EU: £5

RoW: £6

Risks and challenges

I have taken as many steps as I can to reduce any risks involved in bringing the project to fruition, I have been working with a highly reputable and well known British caster who is handling the 3D printing, mold making and casting of my miniatures, through working with them to produce the 35mm and 75mm miniatures I am absolutely confident in delivering the bust to the same high quality and professional finish.

I would note that reward delivery time whilst as accurate as we can possibly give is still an estimate and may overrun, touch wood, delivery will be earlier than expected, however if any delays do present themselves I assure you that I will be keeping you as updated as I am myself.
