FIRST OF ALL.... HI GUYS :D
hi guys :D
with this KS i want to raise money to make a set of colored front and rear paper miniatures in a 28mm scale for wargames and rpg, set in my fantasy world. They are well suited for fantasy wargames but they are an excellent group of encounter or generic characters for fantasy roleplay games. I m open to suggestions and requests so write down there all you want to see!!!
THIS IS WHAT YOU WILL GET
DIGITAL DELIVERY ONLY
This kickstarter is meant to be DIGITAL DELIVERY ONLY... I REPEAT... DIGITAL ONLY.
You will only recive a pdf, if you want i will upload everything on drivethrurpg after the ks complete completion and there you can order a printed version of the ruleset if you want.
NOTE THAT ALL THE MINIATURES ARE 28mm SCALE
WHY PAPER MINIATURES
I've been a wargamer for at least 10 years and and a rpg player and DM for about two years... in all this time i recognized that plastic and metal miniatures are too big of an expense. In terms of money and time needed. But what made me most unhappy 4-5 months ago was tthat I couldn't find the miniatures that I wanted. So i decided to start following a 3d course for 3d modelling...I have to say that it's wonderful what you can do with those programs but i felt that i needed a lot of time and effort too... And not to mention the cost of a 3d printer and the time it needs to print, so i searched for another solution.
The solution in my opinion is paper miniatures. They are cheap and quick to assemble, everyone can print them easily, storing them is not a problem and thanks to the fact that i m good enought at drawing I can make the miniatures that I want!
So going back to the KS, i want to make a set of paper miniatures to populate my fantasy world. I'm not new to making paper models, if you go to my page on DRIVETHRURPG you can see what i have already done in the previous 2 months...
CONCEPTS AND IDEAS
Phantasya is inhabited by thousand race and civilizations big or small, this set focus on the eastern region of the main human empire. This region is sorrounded by high mountains, the land is hilly and covered by woods. There are a lot of minor river and creek, making this zone inhabited by humans and other species.
THE HUMAN EMPIRE OF GOSLAR
Goslar is the main human empire in the west of PHANTASYA. This empire is ruled by emperor Elman Tormund from the Tormund family. They rule above the empire from 2 century. The empire is stronger than in the past, but it s far away from being safe from enemies from within and without. The aristocracy is decline, mercants and bourgeois little by little are becoming the dominant caste in the empire. Cities are ruled by two magistrates appointed every two years. One is appointed from the emperor and one is appointed from the city nobility. The emperor appointed magistrate has more power than the other magistrate but usually this sistem grant to the empire a stable enought form of governament.
this s an example of imperial soldiers you will get (if unlocked)....
THE GOATMAN HERDS
Goatmans are a faction of half man half goat people. They live in herds and move freely in the Valgar woods without a sedentary economy, they are mainly hunters and gatherer. They are omnivourus, but they prefer to eat fruit vegetables and meat rather than grass or leaf even if they can. They end usually fighting and pillaging the human, dwarf and other factions insediaments rather than trade.
THE VAMPIRES FEUDAL KINGDOM
They have a little kingdom, subdivided in feuds by various vampire lords. They are 1500 estern european looking and uses a mixture of night beast, mosters, human soldiers and vampires of various levels.
Many of you will think... " what? humans too?? " well, it makes sense, they cannot live in a land of dead, they need to drink blood.... this way the towns people offers daily blood toghether with taxes, and when one cannot pay he becomes the payment.... and then there are those humans that wants to became immortal and serve the vampires as soldiers in excange of the promise to be turned in vampires if they serve well....
here s a concept for the vampire
the first one is an old vampire, they are not numerous, they can live under the sun withoud burning like the lesser level vampires. Aniway being them creatures of the darkness, they feel the power of the sun on them. Under the sunlight they feel week lose strenght, and are unable do use their magic with full power.
the vampire soldiers are this strong human like beasts with bat wings. When a new vampire is made from an elder vampire they have to controll their need of blod, if they dont rexist enoguth to understand how to controll it they became mindless beasts like those belowe. With time they can evolve and in 2-3 century they can become as the old vampires and acquire their powers, Needless to say that the older vampire dont like this and usually mantain a narrow numer of them. The older vampire fear to be killed by their own kind, so they prefer to mantain little army of this low tier vampires.
the mindless vampires, those called night beasts usually are kept asleep from the masters and awoken when needed to fight. They tend to be voracious and need constant controll from the master to avoid them to run around drinking blood without controll. They cannot reproduce and wander around if they flee the controll of the master. They are one of the most hunted beast in the woods of the empire from vampirehunters and monsterhunters.
The dwarves dont need to be introduced... they live under the mountains and once upon a time a strongest faction now they have to fight against the goatmen, the ratman and the cave goblins. They are a strong faction. here s a concept:
Ratmans live above and belowe the ground... they are a malevolent and diabolical race that like to stab and fight in a dirty way... they are divided in noun, the lowest noun is the slave noun. They usually form the base of every ratman army, they are expendable and if they die in battle they then became food for the other ratman.... here s a concept of them
