Modest Medusa Miniatures is a small series of 3D printed resin miniatures based on the characters from the popular Modest Medusa webcomic. Modest Medusa is an all ages comic series by Jake Richmond about a 6 year old snake girl from a magical land who finds her way to our world where she meets a new family and enjoys a life of video games, junk food and Pokemon!
Our series of miniatures features Modest Medusa and her sisters. These super cute chibi style miniatures are perfect for gaming, painting or just collecting!
Our Modest Medusa miniatures are 3D resin miniatures sculpted by Brian Phelps and produced by Steve Tooze of 3D Printing Delaware. Each mini is 33mm tall and sits on a 25mm plastic base. Our single piece transparent green resin miniatures are solid and durable!
Our miniatures are easy to prime and look great painted! Check out these photos from painter Drew Olds!
Each Modest Medusa miniature ships in a clamshell package with a card backing, featuring art by Modest Medusa creator Jake Richmond!
"Are the miniatures finished?" Each of the miniatures has already been sculpted, and Steve has already produced a whole bunch of samples (which I've been showing off at conventions all summer). Packaging has already been printed and art has been completed. Once the Kickstarter finished we'll begin full production. Production is done in-house by Steve, and we expect to deliver most rewards by April of 2020 (if not sooner), with our painted rewards shipping later in the year.
"Why are pledges limited to just 100 miniatures?" This Kickstarter is a test to see if we can produce and deliver a nice set of miniatures in a reasonable amount of time. Steve has a history of producing 3D printed miniatures, but Jake's a comic book guy and has never done anything like this before. We want to focus on producing a limited run and fulfilling our Kickstarter as fast as possible. If all goes well we may choose to do a larger project later. For now we're starting small and playing it safe.
"Do your 3D printed miniatures have those annoying 3D printing ridges?" Our Modest Medusa miniatures are 3D printed in resin and the result is nice and smooth, with only the barest hint of texture! Of course if you look closely you can see the layering from the 3D printing, but this disappears under a coat of primer or paint. Take a look at this extreme close up photo and you'll see that our 3D printed minis look pretty good!

Risks and challenges
This project is an experiment to see if we can produce and deliver a series of miniatures in a reasonable amount of time. We think we can, but there is always a chance that something will go wrong, or the project will take longer than we expect. While delays are common with Kickstarter projects, I've learned from past campaigns and we're doing everything we can before hand to minimize that amount of time it will take to produce and deliver this project.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
