Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, I have had three projects successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive.
The Funding Goal is for 50,000 SEK (Swedish Crown) which equals aprox. $5,700, €4,800 or £4,300 (exchange rates may vary, please check your current ones).
The goal of this project is to attempt to raise funds for the production of totally 12 miniatures; six for the Clansmen of Caer Loch and six for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic, resin. The scale of the miniatures are 35 mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters can be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).
The miniatures have already been sculpted and pre-production resin casts have been completed and approved for final production if the funding is reached. A successful project here will help me be able to pay for the resin casting, and it will help me to kickstart the miniature range and expand it even further!
(The grey resin miniatures below are not 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 adding extra to your pledge. The amount you need to add correspondes to the amount of miniatures that your pledge will consist of.
For example, say that you have picked the pledge level "Pick & Choose" and you decide that you want six miniatures. Each one of those miniatures will cost you 80 SEK each (as seen on the graphics above). If you then want to add one miniature from the add-ons that would mean that you need to increase your pledge by another 80 SEK, since the total amount of miniatures adds up to seven totally.
None of the pledge levels include the shipping cost. Shipping will be paid after the project has ended 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, a simple kraft box, and a padded envelope.
Typically, the estimated shipping cost break down as following (however, note that this is a rough estimation, 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 to select). The following is only ESTIMATED and does not mean that it is 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 previously kickstarter projects have been successfully funded and delievered 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 arts alone. With the experience of running earlier projects, I have complete confidence that this project will run smoothly, too!
I am working with the same resin caster as I have in the previous three projects. The quality is outstanding and the caster has got extended knowledge of the process, and is being employed by a 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 be using e-mail or on the Facebook-page. The risk of an extended period of "radio silence" with me is slim-to-none!
