At GenCon 2011, Chance Kirchhof from the podcast Three Die Block and Bryan Mitchell from the podcast Zlurpcast were talking about Tabletop Fantasy Football and about all the miniature teams they wished existed. They soon discovered they both shared an interest in the great apes (don't ask how that came up!) and had always wondered why, with people's interest in apes and monkeys, there were no fantasy football ape teams available. That's when Impact! miniatures got involved, telling the lads that they'd be happy to oversee the project and run the Kickstarter phase.
With Bryan's guidance, Chance's sketches and a crazy ape film, these super simians took off and are now ar your mercy - do they evolve into a fully realized metal miniature team or face the grim spector of extinction? Show your support for our fellow primates by ordering yours today and, in four-six months time, go ape with them on the pitch!
Without further ado, here's the sketches of the players. Sculpting will be done by renowned artist, Patrick Keith. These figures will be standard 28mm scale.
Please note that all figures will be cast in lead-free white metal and due to their size and sharp points should be kept away from small children.
PLEASE NOTE that you can add $5 to ANY reward level to get a SHOUT-OUT on an upcoming Three Die Block podcast!
TIMELINE: We anticipate that sculpting will be completed by April 30th, with moulding and casting being completed in May and the figures will be shipped in June. We are trying to be conservative and will keep everyone up-to-date as we work through the process.
