Introducing Anarchy Models High Speed Stencil system!

 Last year we ran our first kickstarter, for the HD Stencil system, the campaign was a hit, and we have been selling tons of HD Stencils via our web site. Thank you to all our backers from last year, as well as all our customers!

Now its time to bring in a sister product, the HS (high speed) Stencil System.

Now lets just make things 100% clear from the start, HS stencils are NOT a replacement for the HD stencils. Our HD stencils are here to stay.

"So why make a new range?" you may ask

Well, some jobs are only possible, or are more practical to do in one type of stencils or the other, while some can work in both types, but will produce a different effect.

HS stencils are;

  • Fully Re-useable - with proper care, HS Stencils will last for years.
  • Semi-transparent - you can see where you are putting the stencil
  • Washable and solvent proof. Simply clean with a suitable substance for the paint you are using.
  • Thin and Flexible.
  • Will produce a softer edge - In some cases you may not want a really crisp edge like the HD stencils provide.
  • Not Sticky - are used either freehand or by taping to the model/item
  • Quick to use -  you do not have to spend time making sure the stencil is stuck to the item, and in some cases you may not need to mask off the rest of the item.
  • Easy to use - create amazing paintwork with even a basic level of skill

Details of each design can be found below the Add-ons and Freebies areas

.
.

Add-ons

To add an Add-on to your pledge, simply increase your pledge by the amount shown. (you MUST select a pledge level to be eligible for Add-ons)

.

Additional HS Stencils £12

We see this option as mostly usable by people with an early bird spot that want some extra stencils, but is open to anyone who has pledge for 5 or more HS Stencils.

Blank Stencil Sheets.

You asked for it, so here it is. Blank sheets can be useful for making your own stencils, and in the case of the HD mateirla, can be used to great effect for custom masking by cutting it while stuck to the model.

5x Blank A4 sheets of HD material £9

5x blank A4 sheets of HS material £14

(the blank HS material will be a thinner grade than used for most HS stencils, as its easier (though still tricky) to cut by hand. For basic shapes its fairly easy, but if you want a complicated design, you may be better asking me to custom cut you a stencil (we won't be doing custom stencils until after this kickstarter ships.)

.

HD Stencils Add-ons

Right from the start of this campaign, we had many people mention they were sad they missed our first campaign, for the HD Stencil System (our current sticky stencils range) 

 So, we thought we would offer our lovely backers a chance to get some HD stencils at a discount, which will then be added to your pledges, for no additional shipping charge.

 You may choose any combination of designs, multiples of these offers if you wish( for example 2x HD stencils for £16), but due to kickstarter rules, you cannot ask for more than 10 of the same design (not that anyone is likely to need more than 10 of one design ;-) .) 

 To add these HD stencils to your pledge, simply add the required amount to your pledge. 

 To see the available range, visit our web site, www.anarchymodels.co.uk. or here is a direct link; 

www.anarchymodels.co.uk/index.php?page=shop.browse&category_id=27&option=com_virtuemart&Itemid=1&vmcchk=1&Itemid=1

  •  1x HD stencil of your choice £8 
  •  5x HD Stencils of your choice £37 
  •  10x HD Stencils of your choice £69 
  •  (note; these will not come with full retail packaging)

.

Airbrush Kits.

Iwata are widely thought of as the best there is, and in my opinion, rightly so.

We realise that even after our discount, these kits are still a lot of money, but these are top quality pieces of equipment and worth every penny over buying a low quality knock-off, that will just break in 5 minutes.

.

.

  • HS-03 - Dreadball Pitch - £15  -------("why is the dreadball stencil an addon?" Due to our agreement with Mantic, we need to know exactly what was paid for a Mantic themed item, and so its not practical to include them in pledge levels that have a varying degree of discount.)

Continuing our partnership with Mantic Games, this stencil makes a full Dreadball Extreme pitch with only 4 repeats of the main stencil., and also included optional numbers for the rush track and turn counter.

Next year mantic are planning an expansion that lets you use any size pitch, so this stencil will help you create the pitch of your dreams :-)

This image shows the full Dreadball Extreme grass pitch i made using a hairy/ static grass mat, as well as the stencil itself, and a sample of a sci-fi pitch we made.

A close up showing the hairy/static grass mat. on a smooth surface the lines would be much sharper. This one was actually done as a test with a spray can, rather than my usual airbrush.

Risks and challenges

As with our HD - Stencils project last year, the stencils from this project will be made by me, in the UK, so unlike many kickstarters that rely on multiple people/companies, sometimes in other countries altogether, problems should be pretty minimal.

Our last project did ship slightly later than planned, mainly down to receiving a much higher than expected level of funding, but, we ARE more prepared this time

There may well be some unforeseen issues that arise, but we will keep you informed every step of the way.
