When faced with mighty warmachines, martian tripods or terrifying monsters, the humble infantryman needs some serious fire support just to stay alive. Curious Constructs has the blue print's to support your troops next time they march to war; now we need your support to bring this highly detailed miniature kit to life!
This 28mm Anti-Tank Lasercannon has been designed by Kit Burrows of Zinge Industry, a highly regarded 3D designer, on behalf of Curious Constructs. It is a multi-part kit, which will be cast in high quality resin, and offers huge potential for customisation. As well as offering the Anti-Tank Lasercannon, the carriage will be available seperately to be fitted with your choice of third party heavy weapons, or with any of our own Steam Punk inspired alternative weapons which we have in development as stretch goals.
Update 15th April -
We're very pleased to announce the addition of the Mule Logistical Support Vehicle, or LSV for short. The Mule is a rugged all terrain tractor unit, a battlefield transport ideal for transporting supplies like ammunition, and even towing artillery pieces. This detailed multi-part resin kit, designed by Faolan, measures approximately 5.5cm (2.16") long and includes alternative exhausts and an optional towing hook. The kit is available in two new pledge options, or can be added to other new or existing pledges.
So why a kickstarter?
I'm a long term, passionate, and dedicated hobbiest who loves the idea of taking cool ideas, and then bringing them to the tabletop. After dabbling with selling my own sculpts, which I originally created for my personal collection, I set up Curious Constructs as a more permanent outlet for my work.
Through Curious Constructs I've released a number of successful kits, including a number of conversion sets and complete kits, like the Gatling Gun and Iron Horse Bike. However, as a one man band, I've only got so many resources, to turn concepts into finished products. Though I work a full time day job, I am able to work around the time constraints, by working with other skilled designers and sculptors such as Kit. However, financing is harder to come by, and that is where Kickstarter, and you, come in.
With your help, we can achieve our initial funding goal. This will cover the project's design fees, setup costs, including the 3D printing of the masters, mould production, and the initial production run.
However, please remember to not only pledge your support, but to share your support! If you like what you see, please tell those you know, who might also be interested, to help us secure vital funding.
As ever with kickstarter, if we can exceed our initial funding goal, we can go further and offer more. Each of these will be unlocked and added to the project in turn, if and when we reach the indicated amount.
The Gatling Cannon, Autocannon, Tesla Cannon and Rocket Launcher, will be included as an extra to all those supporting us at pledge levels including complete Anti-Tank Lasercannons. Meanwhile, the Artillery Crew, and should we unlock it, the Multiple Rocket Launcher, will be available as separate items, which you'll be able to add to any existing pledge for a small additional amount.
Pledge Reward Extras
Anyone who has selected a reward which includes one or more complete Anti-Tank Laser's may add additional carriages to their reward in order to make up complete extra heavy weapons with your extra weapons components unlocked through our stretch goals.
If adding 1-4 carriages, these are £9.00 each.
If adding 5 or more carriages, these are £8.00 each.
Due to Kickstarter rules, you may not add in excess of 10 carriages more then you have spare unlocked weapons in your pledge.
Anyone may add a maximum of ten Mule LSV to your selected reward.
If adding 1-2 Mules, these are £14.00 each.
If adding between 3 and 10 Mules, these are £12.00 each.
Anyone may add a maximum of ten sets of six Artillery Crewmen to your selected reward.
If adding a set of three random models, each set is £6.00.
If adding a six man set with all six models, each set is £12.00.
Anyone selecting at least one full six man set will also recieve 'the Bomdardier'.
Multiple Rocket Launcher / Nebelwerfer
Anyone may add up to ten MLR / Nebelwerfer weapons sets to your selected reward.
Each set is an additional £5.00.
Risks and challenges
By working with experienced and skilled industry professionals, Curious Constructs has minimised any risk in the manufacturing process. Our 3D designs have, from the outset, been created with conventional casting techniques in mind.
We have also kept this foray into kickstarter small scale, with realistic and achievable goals, rather then with a huge and expansive project with multiple goals. Not only do we expect to be able to achieve our delivery aims, but I fully expect to be ahead of schedule all going well!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We've been amazed by the response to the Kickstarter, it really has exceeded all expectations - and then some. Between myself, and the two CAD artists involved in the project we have numerous other potential weapon concepts to mount on this carriage, including the previously discussed Gatling Mortar and a standard Mortar, we've not included them here because of time constraints. Additional funding means we'll be able to invest in these items sooner, in addition backers have also requested a Heavy Artillery range, additional funds may also be invested into early work on this project.
I'm afraid not no, the £5.00 is just for the weapon, you can use this with any of your existing carriages, or add additional carriages to your reward as listed under Pledge Reward Extras on the campaign page.
