Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to our very first Kickstarter! In it, we wish to release one spincast mould's worth of 15mm metal Tjubgobs with your help, all sculpted by Tobias "Tjub" Torstensson from Gothenburg.
This premier Kickstarter is run in a deliberately simple and safe manner, to test the waters and learn the ins-and-outs with the platform. The Tjubgob sculpts have already been succesfully moulded and test cast (by Polish Kazrak Miniatures).
These are the 6 different infantry kits available. Together, they all make up 1 Maniple bundle in this Kickstarter:
As to size, the Tjubgobs are 14-15mm tall from toes to eyes:
We ship anywhere in the world. Shipping is not included in the pledges, but is added on top of the pledge. Requesting tracked shipping will be €10,5 extra. Here is the list of international shipping costs for the various pledges (Swedish backers will have lower shipping):
1 Tjubgob Infantry kit = €2
1 Tjubgob Maniple = €6
1 Future Tjubgob of Your Own Design = Shipping included (but not tracked shipping)
2 Tjubgob Maniples = €6,5
3 Tjubgob Maniples = €6,5
4 Tjubgob Maniples = €6,5
5 Tjubgob Maniples = €8,5
6 Tjubgob Maniples = €8,5
7 Tjubgob Maniples = €8,5
8 Tjubgob Maniples = €8,5
9 Tjubgob Maniples = €8,5
10 Tjubgob Maniples = €8,5
Special shipping arrangements (such as lowered shipping for combined pledges, to prevent artificial stacking of shipping in the system) should be possible to set up. Please request, and we will look into it when the campaign has concluded.
Please share feedback and suggestions, and do not hesitate to ask if you wonder anything. This is our premier, where we'll learn the waters. Thanks in advance, and we hope you enjoy these sculpts from Tobbe!
Risks and challenges
This Kickstarter is run as securely as possible. The great risk of running miniature crowdfunders, is to estimate wrongly, and having sculpts mould poorly. As such we already have a mould made, and test castings succesfully produced and shipped, so that we rather well know the numbers to calculate by. You may view it as more of a pre-order than a traditional Kickstarter.
This Kickstarter is our first, and as such the premier will be a cautious low-scale one, where unexpected extra costs beyond all the known numbers will not be crippling for us. This is where we test the waters, uncover all the potential issues, and find solutions to it. Future Kickstarters may come to include several moulds' worth of miniatures, with a more elaborate setup. This one is run as simply and safely as possible, to learn.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
