“Welcome to Blightmoor”

First, thank you for looking at our campaign.  

ABOUT BEAR CLAN CREATIVE

We are a start up company specializing in the design and manufacture of toys, model kits and of course gaming miniatures.  Our home is in South Bend, Indiana and we are owned and operated by David Martin, a member of the Pokagon Band of Potawatomi Indian Nation.  

WHAT IS "THE CATASTROPHES OF BLIGHTMOOR"?

Blightmoor is a swamp/dark forest setting that the dragons and monsters from this campaign reside, fight, haunt and bring catastrophe to.  The focus of this current campaign is of course giant deadly dragons.  Each dragon that is in this campaign will come with a little back story so that you can make it easier to include them in your current gaming campaign.  Unlocked stretch goals will add more lore, dragons and other monsters to enhance the setting of Blightmoor. 

THE MODELS

Each dragon kit will be a large sized 28 mm scale figure that will require assembly.  Though each figure will have its own unique dimensions due to the pose of that model, they will all occupy roughly the same weight and mass.  Using Seris as a point of reference you can see the wing span is 16 inches (41 cm) and has a height of 7 1/4 inches (18.5 cm).  Some dragons might end up taller and not quite as wide but they should all look to be the same anatomical size on your shelf.

 They will be 3D printed in a resin that mimics plastic and is not as brittle as regular 3D printing resin.  They will come unassembled and will require glue and paint to get the most out of your model.  

THE STL FILES

All STL files will come in multiple parts that will be keyed, hollowed and drain holes already added so you can just add supports and print.  We will include an orientation PDF with all the figures to make printing easier.  

Seris was printed on a DLP printer and we recommend that an SLA or DLP be used to print these.  Because of the detail, we cannot guarantee the quality of the print if you use an FDM printer.

PLEDGE LEVELS

Small figure scale.


 Ugath, the Abomination is free with every pledge over $10.  Foundation of Mud and Evil Plans will receive the STL file.  All resin model pledges will get 1x Ugath and his STL file.

Ugath will not be available to purchase in the retailer pledge level and will not be packaged for resale.  However retailers will still receive 1 x Ugath model as a free reward. 

STRETCH GOALS


PMANUFACTURING 

All resin miniatures will be 3D printed using a number of DLP printers working simultaneously to quickly produce the figures in a period of time equal to how long it would take to have them cast in resin.

When designing our company it was important to us that we did all our manufacturing in our own facility for multiple reasons.  By bringing everything under one roof we have a better control of our product and how it is designed, presented and manufactured. Many companies that make similar product use plastic injection molding or cast their figures in resin.  Both of which rely on an outside contractor (usually over seas) to do the work.  This can lead to excessive wait times when it comes to updates on the status of the project.  With the current advances in 3D printing in recent years, and especially this year, it is our opinion that for short run items (5,000 or less units) like gaming miniatures, it is more viable to 3D print them.  

They will be made in a durable proprietary 3D printing resin.  We have spent the last year getting the mix right to maintain the highest amount of detail and also make them more rugged than traditional 3D printed resin figures.  The detail will be better than what you can get with plastic injection molding or even resin casting.  With plastic injection, the more detail = more pieces to make sure to eliminate undercuts and make sure the pieces can come out of a mold.  And with resin printing, 99% of the time the mold is made from a 3D printed master (that is also made of resin) and it will loose some detail compared to an original 3D print.

SHIPPING

We will be shipping all pledges via United States Postal Service.  All packages will be shipped with tracking.  Please be aware that your country might have duties or fees that you might be required to pay before your rewards can be delivered.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk in this is that we are a new company. We have been working on the design and business plan for Bear Clan Creative for several years now and we like to think we have thought of everything but surely things can and will go wrong. If in the event something does go wrong and we think it will affect you receiving your rewards on time we will be open and honest with you. I have personally lost $500 on a kickstarter for a game that never delivered and ghosted the backers. A lot of our research has been centered around what NOT to do with our campaign. Because we are manufacturing ourselves, we look forward to doing a lot of updates with videos of your figures being made.

Our chiefest concern is mechanical failure. We are manufacturing ourselves but machines can break. We already have common spare parts to repair all our machines and we have several back up printers as well.

Printing takes time. We have scaled our campaign and priced our figures so that if it over funds we will know way in advance if we need to purchase more printers to complete all manufacturing to maintain the delivery date.
