About

RPGminifigs

What is RPGminifigs?

RPGminifigs are minifigs designed for fantasy, tabletop role-playing games. Our dream for RPGminifigs is to become an alternative to standard tabletop miniatures that allows you to create unique, playful, modular, and customizable characters. While our goal is to create fully, custom characters, we felt that the best place to start would be the 12 basic classes of fantasy gaming:

Each class name contains a link to an image.

Barbarian through Monk
Barbarian through Monk
Paladin through Wizard
Paladin through Wizard

The images of samples shown are still works in progress. All torsos will be replaced with custom, pad-printed, torsos.

Our parts are coming from companies that make some awesome minifig accessories including; 

  • Arealight
  • BrickArms
  • Brick Forge 
  • Brick Warriors
  • Cape Madness
  • Citizen Brick
  • Crazy Bricks

Origin Story

First of all, we are in no way the first people that have used minifigs as miniatures for tabletop gaming. That said, while playing some D&D 5e Adventure League games, one of the players brought in a very generic minifig. I was playing Ager, my Half-Orc monk, and I was frustrated with not finding a miniature that matched my vision of the character. So I set out on a quest to make a minifig version and discovered a whole new world of custom, third-party, Lego-compatable accessories! Soon my friend, and co-founder of RPGminifigs, Franco, was making his minifig character and people took notice. Thus, RPGminifigs was born! We wanted to make a place where you could find everything you might need to create your character!

Budget & Timeline

After, a lot, of number crunching, we have come up with a Kickstarter goal of $18,500. How did we get this number? This number is based on creating a minimum of 1,350 minifigs, which we could would be the minimum amount to make everything cost effective. Here is the breakdown of spending:

  • $1,300 - Odoo - ERP solution for keeping track of inventory, purchases, and orders.
  • $8,000 - Minifig Parts & Accessories
  • $250 - Shipping Supplies
  • $7,000 - Custom Printed Torsos
  • $1,650 - Kickstarter Fees
  • $300 - Budget Padding

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk with this project will be managing production times, especially with custom torsos, and if make some stretch goals, production times of other custom items.

The second risk will be supply from third party partners and turn-around time if there is a delay for certain items. Most likely this would only lead to a short delay, or at worst, substituting a comparable item.

As this is my first Kickstarter, I suppose there is some challenge of doing this for the first time, however, I have a background of being the Director of Operations and Purchasing for a large guitar manufacturer that should help alleviate any of the two major risks I previously mentioned.
