Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, three projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive. Thanks to the support through Kickstarter, 17 miniatures have been made available.
The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Clansmen of Caer Loch. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).
- Villa, the Headsman of Caer Loch
- Ulsor, the Chariot of Caer Loch
- Dullahan, the vessel of Caer Loch
- Draque, the Sea Dog of Caer Loch
(Actual copies of the resin miniatures. Note that the resin miniatures below are not 100% in scale with each other, but resized for editing purposes.)
(In the "Pick & Choose" pledge, you may add miniatures from the add-on section listed below.)
If you are interested in adding more miniatures to your pledge, you may easily do so by increasing your pledge. The amount you need to be increased corresponds to the Pick & Choose pledge level. You may also add-on any Caer Loch members if you so desire.
For example, say that you want to add one (1) extra miniature. By looking at the Pick & Choose pledge level you can see that 1 x miniature is an additional 110 SEK. You then simply increase your pledge level by 110 SEK. Say that you want to add 3 x miniatures to your pledge, that would mean that you need to increase your pledge by 300 SEK. If you want to add 7 x miniatures to your pledge, then you would need to increase your pledge by 540 SEK.
None of the pledge levels include the shipping cost. Shipping will be determined after the project has ended and paid through Paypal to ensure that each backer will only pay the actual cost of their individual pledge.
To keep the shipping cost to a minimum, the package will only include the miniature without any base. The miniature will be protected by bubble-wrap and a simple kraft box.
Typically, the estimated shipping cost breakdown is as follows (however, note that this is a rough estimate, and that the shipping cost will be based on the weight of each package, which might differ depending on which miniatures and how many you choose). Again these are ESTIMATES, meaning NOT FINAL.
- 1-4 miniatures: €5
- 5-12 miniatures: €10
- 13+ miniatures: €15
This does NOT include tracking. If you want to include tracking (recommended letter) that will cost an extra €10 in addition to the shipping cost (for example, the estimated shipping cost for 12 miniatures with tracking would end up at €20). The insurance for recommended letter is at max value of 2,000 SEK.
Risks and challenges
The biggest risks and challenges are 1. delays, 2. quality and 3. communication.
Three previous kickstarter projects have been successfully funded and delivered within the estimated date of delivery. The miniatures are sculpted and pre-production casts have been approved. The production will start as soon as the project successfully funds. This project does not run on promises and concept art alone. With the experience of running earlier projects, I have complete confidence that this project will run smoothly!
I am working with the same resin caster as I have in the previous three projects. The quality is outstanding, and the caster has extended knowledge of the process and is being employed by numerous other of well-known companies that offer resin miniatures. Needless to say, the quality will be world class!
I am dedicated to this project and will do my best to answer any questions quickly, both during the project and after it ends. You may also reach me by using e-mail or on the Facebook-page. The risk of an extended period of "radio silence" with me is slim-to-none!
