Welcome to the Outlanders Kickstarter campaign. A new range of figures being launched by Blind Beggar Miniatures which will work in a number of different settings for sci-fi, steampunk and post-apocalyptic gaming.
The idea is to develop some alternative 28-30mm scale figures that will complement the ranges that are already out there, be they gang members, nomad bands or frontier settlers, as well as beginning the development of the Outland setting.
The Outlander War Party.
Outlander groups look to their own defence against anyone threatening their way of life, with both male and female members of the community taking up arms when necessary.
The first offering in this range is based on a typical Outlander War Party and contains members representing various elements of the society they are protecting.
Initially the War Party will contain ten sculpts cast in white metal, with more potentially being added to it as Stretch Goals.
The War Party now stands at 13 members as the Shaman, Veteran and Cyber Hound have all been Unlocked and added....
The above picture shows master castings that have been 'inked'.
Pictures of painted examples will be added as they are completed.
Here is the first one...
,,,,more are being added at the bottom of the page, just scroll down and take a peek.
The Stretch Goals.
Should the total raised go beyond the initial £1000 target it would enable more figures to go into production. This will result in more members being added to the War Party and also make other Packs available as optional Add-On's.
To represent this, the following Stretch Goals will come into play.
Stretch Goal #1 - Shaman Added to War Party... UNLOCKED!
A Shaman has been added to the War Party.
Stretch Goal #2 - The Marshall and Hounds. (Add-On)... UNLOCKED!
The Marshall and Hounds are available as an Add-on for an additional £8 per set of three miniatures.
Stretch Goal #3 - Veteran Added to War Party... UNLOCKED!
A Veteran has been added to the War Party.
Stretch Goal #4- The Merchant and Porters. (Add-On)... UNLOCKED!
The Merchant and Porters have become available as an Add-on for an additional £8 per pack of three miniatures.
*The Merchant and Porters shown here have added 'loads' which are NOT supplied. This, of course, leaves you the option to have them carrying whatever you decide!
Stretch Goal #5 - Cyber Hound Added to War Party... UNLOCKED!
A Cyber Hound has been added to the War Party.
Note: Backers will receive either the Sitting or Standing Hound chosen at random.
Stretch Goal #6 (£2000) - The Hooded Ones. (Add-On)
Should the total reach £2000, then the Hooded Ones will become available as an Add-on for an additional £7 per pack of three miniatures.
The Hooded Ones do not come with a slotta tab. As the bases of the figures are flat they can be easily stuck to any base required.
All of the above figures have slotta base tabs and will fit most types of plastic bases, which are NOT supplied.
More pictures of painted examples will be added here as I get to them..
Risks and challenges
There are no significant risks to this project.
All the figures have been sculpted and master moulds and castings made.
It is just a matter of getting production moulds made and the figures cast.
The only thing that could delay the process at all would be too many Backers, but that would be a pleasant problem to have and there has already been extra time factored into the plan to allow for this.
I fully expect everyone to get their shiny new goodies long before the delivery date stated.
