Welcome to my Kickstarter !
I am very excited to present my figures to you in this Kickstarter. This is my second Kickstarter campaign, and I have been busy getting everything ready to show off.
The figures and creatures in this campaign have been lurking in my head for years, and now they are finally being made into reality. Designed and sculpted by me, Mark (aka Frozen Ninja - 3D Sculpting), I am also making silicon molds and doing resin casts of the majority of the figures. The 3D printing is being done by the best printers out there, such as Zealot Miniatures and GT Studio Creations.
I am well prepared for this campaign, and I have help and support lined up should they be required.

ADD-On List UPDATED 12/7/17
We have unlocked our First Stretch Goal, Sun Warrior 1 !!! Next up is the 30mm version of the Reef Queen, and then at $1,800 we will unlock the Chibi version of the Big Guy !!!
Thank you for taking the time to view my campaign! LETS SEE SOME MINIATURES! First I will show the 3D render, then the Resin Casting.
The Big Guy
The Big Guy 28mm was designed to be a little smaller than the standard 30mm figures, because I wanted him to appear that way when standing alongside the others. He got the nickname Big Guy because of his large attitude, not his large presence. However, his 55mm counterpart is ideally suited to be a giant or a boss in a war-game. He is ready to take on an army!
The Big Guy is available in 2 sizes, and resin casts are in hand and ready to ship out. The following pictures are of resin copies and were base-coated in white, then they were given a dark wash, and then a white dry-brush.
Tree Golem is available in 2 sizes, and resin casts are in hand and ready to ship out. The following pictures are of resin copies and were base-coated in white, then they were given a dark wash, and then a white dry-brush. There are a LOT of leaves on this guy!!
Reef Warrior 1
Reef Warrior 1 comes with one dock piece, and resin casts are in hand and ready to ship out. The following pictures are of resin copies and were base-coated in white, then they were given a dark wash, and then a white dry-brush.

Resin Casts in progress
More resin casts are being done each week. Here is a sample picture that shows the connection pieces on The Big Guy.
Miniature Sizes, Design, and Quality
These miniatures were all designed to be useable figures in war gaming sessions, as well as for painting and display. In addition, each figure was designed with very nice locks and keys so that fitting together the parts will be very easy.
I chose a 30mm scale for the smaller figures because that scale seems to be a great fit with the majority of war-games out there. The larger figures would also work great in games as one of the Bosses that the players must face. I am really looking forward to seeing some paint on these figures!
The resin casts are coming out beautifully, and are able to capture even the smallest of details from the master 3D prints, and I am very happy with the quality of these figures.
I am doing quality control on each figure that is cast, and I am doing my best to provide the highest quality castings I possibly can. Because it is possible for something to slip by me, if any figure arrives with a problem then don't hesitate to contact me for a solution. Being the Designer and Sculptor, I want to make sure you are happy with the figures you receive.
Shipping will be charged depending on where in the world you live. I have done my best to get the shipping as low as possible, and so I decided on one shipping charge per package, no matter how many miniatures you purchase. So, it doesn't matter if you purchase 1 or 20 miniatures (or more!), you will only be charged this one time shipping fee :
USA Shipping = $4.00
Canada Shipping = $10.00
Rest of the World Shipping = $15.00
My name is Mark Norton and I started this campaign to help Kickstart the new line of figures that I designed and sculpted myself. I have worked for almost 2 years getting ready for this campaign, and I am ready to bring some beautifully detailed figures to life! Each figure is designed and sculpted by myself, going by the name Frozen Ninja - 3D sculpting. This is my 2nd Kickstarter campaign - the first was successful and we were able to fulfill all pledges before the estimated due date. I learned an incredible amount doing that first Kickstarter in 2015, and I have worked hard to make sure I am well prepared for my 2nd adventure in crowdfunding.
A Little History
M&K Adventures was founded by myself and my wife Kimberly, back in 2012. Our goal was to create fun miniatures, and that still remains our goal today. After our successful Kickstarter in 2015, we began the vision that is this campaign. In 2016 I started working FULL TIME sculpting figures, and doing my own molds and resin casts.
Thank you very much for viewing and reading all of this. I appreciate the support.
I want to thank the following for all of their help and support :
Kimberly Norton - My wife and supporter of everything I do, helping with all aspects whenever she is needed. As an Accountant and Human Resources expert, her advice is legendary.
Zealot Miniatures - Printing beautiful 3D prints, and making some great resin casts.
GT Studio Creations - Printing beautiful 3d prints.
David Arevalo - Printing beautiful 3D prints.
Ravenstar Studios - Making some great resin casts.
Mini Painting Studio - Providing great livestream painting videos, and the painting is looking great!
Risks and challenges
The Risk associated with this project is very low. I am doing this as my full time job and I am working with the absolute best 3d printers from around the world. I am in charge of all sculpting, I quality check every 3d print, and I am also making high quality molds and resin casts myself.
If this project gets really big, then I have already secured help that is ready to step in. In addition, I am working with 2 high quality resin casters that can help with casting if needed. All casts are quality checked by myself to assure a high level.
Because the printing, molding, and casting are complete for almost all of the beginning figures, the biggest Challenge I face is getting the word out that this project even exists! So please help spread the word.
As an independent artist who is completely dedicated to this project, I am doing everything in my power to make sure every backer receives their figures by the estimated delivery date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
