Just like our host we are celebrating a tenth anniversary and welcome you to our tenth project here on Kickstarter!
Last year we were thinking of doing something a bit different than the historic, scifi and fantasy ranges out there and thus, Exquis was born. A range of modern day women.
I reached out to one of our regular sculptors, Edgar Marocsek, who is known for his beautiful sculptures of women and he instantly liked the idea. So we went to work and decided to start with five different stereotypes with hopefully many more to follow.
The campaign will help us fund the production of the five initial busts we have prepared and hopefully get the others we have in mind underway.
As said above there are five busts in total but you'll only see four here for now. ''Why is that'' I hear you say?! Well the fifth is a stretch goal and will be entirely for free when you pledge at the group pledge level. ;)
We have a few types of pledges. The regular ones that will be available throughout the campaign with the busts at a discounted price from the MSRP and... 48 hour only EARLY BIRDS!!!
We will sort out which ones you want through the surveys.
Shipping will be charged during the Kickstarter. For all pledges it is €10,- which includes tracking, signed for delivery and insurance.
We have set the delivery date for August 2019. Casting will begin once the campaign is over and we have funded. We believe that this is a realistic date after speaking things through with our caster.
The company who handles our shipping proved nine times already that they do a good job. We have every faith we can deliver on time as we have become quite good at organising and packing. We don't think there will be a delay in packages going out to backers but would just like to add that delays can happen. Once the shipping company has your parcels, it is out of our control. However we will do everything possible again to fulfill this Kickstarter on time.
Please note that we are not responsible for any customs or other fees that might occur.
Miniatures come unpainted and need assembly and some cleaning. They are not toys and might take some expertise to put together.
As always there are a few people we would like to thank! The following people who's help and hard work have made it possible to do this campaign!
- Sir Castalot (mysterious and legendary caster supreme!)
- Edgar Marocsek
- David Colwell (David Colwell Miniature Painting)
- Micron 3D
- Raeviel Cirnigliano (Takamin)
- Kyle Cruickshank (Mr Lees Minis)

Risks and challenges
The busts of the Exquis range have already been sculpted and printed. The cast will be indentical to the prints and are underway to our caster. Moulding will be done as soon as the prints have arrived and production will start as soon as (and only if) the campaign is successfully funded.
Once we receive the casts, we will process them and make everything ready for sending them on their way. Out of experience packaging doesn't take us very take long. We have a reliable shipping company who does the distribution and therefor we have good confidence that we will be able to deliver on time.
Please note though that the estimated delivery time is based upon a certain number of expected backers. In case of a highly succesful campaign, the delivery could take a bit longer.
This is our tenth campaign and from our previous nine, we only had one campaign being delivered late. All others were shipped on time or even ahead of the estimated delivery times. Our current caster is a true professional and a man of his word. He has delivered on time and provided great quality a great number of times so we know he will get the job done!
We have great confidence that we can deliver yet another project succesfully and on time and deliver you some fine outstanding poducts!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
