I've finalized the designs, the prototypes have proven their worth and now it's time to move into production. That is where I need your help. In order to control the workflow, turn-times, and to keep costs down I need my own equipment.
So there I was, I had just made a trade for a GSX Magneto and I was looking at it trying to figure out how to move it around during tournaments without breaking it. Searching through my garage I found a piece of plywood and thought this would be great if it had holes the same size as the Heroclix bases. I made a prototype and took it to a local tournament and people seemed to like the idea. I took the idea to work and we where cutting some 1/2" pvc and I thought it would be perfect. I drew it up in the computer real quick and ran out a prototype. Everyone seemed to like the idea and I've now expanded the line from 1 tray to 6.
Show us the goods!
Standard HeroTrays have 9 slots for figures, each slot can hold any single slot kind (Oreo, Cup, or H Base). Also has separate slots for 2 standard dice, cards, and tokens/items.
Peanut HeroTrays have 6 slots for figures, each slot can hold any single slot kind (Oreo, Cup, or H Base), plus 3 slots that can hold Peanut bases, each peanut slot can hold a peanut or 1 oreo and 1 cup or H base. Also has separate slots for 2 standard dice, cards in top loaders, and tokens/items.
Resource Tray replaces 2 of the Peanut bases for the Resource base.
Quarrior Trays have a slot for your Active Pool, Ready Area, Spent Pile, and Used Pile. Great for keeping yourself and your friends honest. Even if someone bumps the table there's not guess work as to who had what here. Comes in a set of 4 and will fit in your extra expansion boxes.
Quarrior Wilds Trays have enough slots for all the dice and cards for a game. Even with 2 slots to expand as new expansions invariably add new rules and play styles. Great for keeping the dice from being scattered everywhere! Comes in a set of 4 and will fit in your expansion boxes, with the trays.
150% funding ($5250) then everyone that backs for at least $35 will get a free card tray, see below. Great for organizing draw and discard piles for almost any card game.
200% funding ($7000) then everyone that backs for at least $35 will get a 3D printed light item token
Want a combination of levels not listed? Say a Peanut Level and Resource Level: Just select one and add the value of the other to your pledge total. In this case selecting a Peanut Level will show up at $20, add $20 for the Resource Level and your Pledge total in this case comes out to $40. Type in box that says Pledge amount: $40.
What about colors? The Trays come in either white or black. The white is paint receptive. Recommended paints include: vinyl's, acrylic lacquers, and two-component polyurethanes.
How do I get what I want? Surveys will be sent out after the Kickstarter to collect this information.
What about shipping to Canada? To help my brothers to the north I'm offering shipping at half price. So just add half the international total to your sponsorship upon ordering and make a note in the comments. Thanks!
Risks and challenges
I've addressed most everything that I can think of when it comes to the risks. The biggest thing would be learning a new machine. It might take a little longer but I personally guarantee the product will end up in the sponsors hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
