Large Tracked War-bots x 6:  Add $50 

You will receive these non painted, non assembled, metal castings, as depicted below.  Three version A bodies, and three version B bodies in top of image.  Six plastic bases.  Two each of three types of heads as depicted running down the top center of image.  Six Left tracks and six right tracks.  A left and right grabber claw arm and 11 weapons allowing for two different arms/weapons per bot with one left over spare. Six chassis at bottom of image to mount tracks and bodies.  A total of 49 parts in this kit.  Part of the interchangeable weapons system described at the bottom of this page.

 Bi-ped troops are able to climb steeper grades or enter multi-floor buildings as opposed to the tracked versions, but could easily become immobilized if hit in a leg.  Work those advantages and disadvantages into your rules.

 Below is an example of the spin casting molds that I make and cast.  The example shown is a weapon part from the Security Drone version A miniature.

 

Risks and challenges

There are no risks or challenges with this project because I personally cast all the pieces and make all the molds on this project and there are no other persons involved in production. Therefore, no fingers to point if something goes wrong.

This is my fifth Kickstarter and I have already fulfilled 100% of the previous four Kickstarters.

For those of you who do not know me, I used to own and operate Mega Miniatures (2001-2013) and maintained an inventory of over 1,700 different products that I produced.

I still own my casting and mold making equipment and will be creating one more kickstarter in 2017 expanding upon Fantasy Dungeon Decor and Monsters.
