I was looking over the vast number of miniatures available and thinking about all their various uses. They come from many different genres and are for many different uses. It occurred to me that there weren’t enough miniatures that really had no direct use. I was looking for something to tie it all together….miniatures that had no purpose other than to remind you to relax, have a beverage and take it easy.
It might be laziness, flashbacks, day of the week or just League Night, but I couldn’t put a detailed outline together. I had an idea, commissioned some sculpts and ended up with four 28mm scale miniatures for your review. So, like, I have the sculpts but checked my briefcase and there’s no money in it. Business papers, no money. “Where’s the money?” I asked myself, but never could find it. It is for this reason that I have come to Kickstarter. It is, like, my opinion, Man, that these are cool and I could use some help to finish them up.
These four miniatures are the ones referenced in the pledge levels to the right. So when the $24, $40 and $54 pledge levels say ALL miniatures they really mean ALL of the original 4. Duder's brain didn't plan for this to succeed so well.
Like, man, I already had the Valkyrie made so she's complete. All miniatures will be cast in pewter and supplied unpainted.
Delivery: I have it listed for October, but could be earlier if all the pieces fall together, man.
"THE RUG" DICE BAG:
Based on your requests and the help of backer Genre_Fad we've figured out how to produce velveteen dice bags with the Dude's rugs on them because they really tie this KickStarter together. One one side is Dude's original rug before the unforunate incident and on the other side is Dude's new rug that the Old Man "said" he could take. The picture of the dice bag shown was a test on a green 3"x3". The actual bag will be black and 3"x4" and can hold 15 D6 dice pretty easily. You can get this dice bag by add $8 to any pledge level. If you want more than one "The Rug" dice bag each one after the first is $7 (so $15 for 2, $22 for 3, etc.)
If you just want one of the two rugs printed on fabric with a heat seal backing (to use say for a diorama) you can add $4 to your pledge. The rug is 2.4"x3.5".
Duder went and had some dice made since you all are making this project fly. The Dude's image is on the 6 face and I figure the Dude and 6 of his friends make 7, you know. The dice are in 3 colors, Basic White because those dice really tie your sets together; Velvet Black because it just look like a normal bowling ball; and Gemini Black-Red as that is the color of the Dude's own bowling ball and we had to have that one.
You can add as many sets of 2 (same or different colors) of these dice as you want to your reward by adding $5 (per set) to your pledge.
Stretch goals are not included in the pledge levels for $24, $40, $54. These pledges are just for the original four miniatures pictured. PLEASE NOTE: the Stretch Goal sculpts cannot be sculpted until end of September and it normally takes 2 months from when we get the sculpts to receipt of metal castings so to be safe plan on your fulfillment being January 2013 if you add Stretch Goal miniatures from Stretch Goals #1 to #4 to your reward and we'll do our best to get them finished sooner.
To add one copy of any of the 4 Stretch Goal #1 to #4 figures to any level just add $5 to your pledge.
To add 2 copies of any of the 4 Stretch Goal #1 to #4 figures to the $40 level, just add $8 to your pledge.
To add 3 copies of any of the 4 Stretch Goal #1 to #4 figures to your $54 level, just add $11 to your pledge.
So if you want all 11 figures, pledge $55 for the $40 level. 2 copies of each of the 11 would be a $96 pledge at the $40 level and 3 copies of all 11 figures would be a $131 pledge at the $54 level.
Stretch Goal #8 ($10000):
We will sculpt Jackie the Adult Filmographer.
He will be available as an add-on figure following the rules stated above for Add-On Stretch Goal figures ($5 add-on ... less if ordering from a multiple set backer level).

PLEASE NOTE: If you add the Trophy Wife, Accessory Sprue or Old Man to your reward, your ENTIRE reward will ship in March or April of 2013 as we cannot have these sculpted until winter of this year. We currently plan to put the first 8 figures in our store by November or December 2012 which will mean that dudes will be able to purchase these 8 figures before your reward ships. If you add the Trophy Wife, Accessory Sprue or Old Man to your pledge, you are acknowledging that you are willing to wait until March or April of 2013 to receive all the figures you are asking for as part of your reward.
