The character models will all be made out of white metal. Large models will be in resin.Last updated:
The 15k covers the following costs - Kickstarter and amazon, advertising and marketing, resin for test 3D prints, master 3D printing, master molds, cleaning of the print, mass production of metal models, packaging, postage to the warehouse, warehouse storage, distribution, campaign managers, promotional, resin production and labour, developmental costs (2D, 3D and technical production), and finally - taxes. Taxes suck. It's actually a rather boring list with a few other things in there as well, like bills etc.
Rest assured, we're not going to take your money and spend it on paintball refills and lobster dinners or something else equally irrelevant. All proceeds are being put towards the getting a quality product out to you.Last updated:
Yes! If you pledged either the silver or gold levels, and you want multiple copies of the same character, it's totally fine!
For example, if you pledged at the silver level and you wanted 3 Dragon Monks and 1 Bertha. It's totally fine!
During the post Kickstarter survey, you'll be able to state clearly exactly which models you want with your pledge.Last updated:
Playtesting a game takes a very long time and a much larger commitment from many different parties. I personally feel that it's far more important for us to get our minis designed and sculpted at the highest quality possible - so we're working hard on that.
We do have a game in the works but it'll be some time before it sees the light of day, as game testing is much more time consuming than designing and sculpting. Hopefully after Arcane Factories Season One, we can dedicate more time into working on the game system, so you might see it being tested in Season Two or Three.
Right now we simply have to focus on communicating with the wargaming community to make the best sculpts we can!Last updated:
You'll see in a couple of interviews I say "under-promise and over-deliver". That's our aim. We don't want my first Kickstarter to be this gigantic, bloated project that'll be a logistical nightmare.
Sure, there are new companies that have reached fundings in the hundreds of thousands, that have promised games and high quality miniatures - and that's great... but a lot of those Kickstarters are notoriously late, and horrendously delayed, sometimes over a year! We prefer to have a small, project, with a much more reasonable achievable goal so we can build up our reputation and integrity as a company that delivers quality products on time.
We know we can sculpt awesome models. We know we can get them manufactured and shipped out at a reasonable pace, and that's exactly what I'm offering with our first Kickstarter. Nothing more, nothing less. For us to offer hobbyists anything more would be incredibly greedy of us, and we don't want to go down the path of offering incentives that we know we won't be able to fulfill at this point in time.
We're just some friends, after work, we sit down and butt heads and make cool stuff. I can promise you we can make cool stuff. We can promise you we can ship the cool stuff to you in a reasonable time frame.
We are the underdogs.
We put out a small, neat little campaign with some nice models in it. We know we can complete these by the due date and we want to build a reputation and brand that people will come to like, and respect, and be known for a drama-free delivery.
Will you help us get there? I can promise a monk with dragons coming out of his arms!
TL:DR - Logistical nightmare for a small company trying to build reputation for making fantastic sculpts.Last updated:
YES! Paypal will be available after the campaign has completed. When the pledge manager becomes available, we will make a posting about it on our Facebook page. You will be able to purchase our bundles and models again for a limited time through Paypal.Last updated:
