Welcome to the latest Kickstarter campaign from Blind Beggar Miniatures.
Juggenfloot are an up and coming 28mm scale White Metal Band that seek funding to help them get off of the ground or even out of the mould.
If this campaign is successful, it will see Juggenfloot being produced in miniature and landing on tabletops and painting desks worldwide.
Perfect for both Sci-Fi and Post-Apocalyptic settings, they will make great Aliens, Mutants or simply fellas in fancy dress. You decide!
The Band consists of six members playing a variety of instruments with a young 'lady' with very powerful aural skills on vocals.
An optional extra that you can add to your pledge are the Amphibious Alien Civilians, who will also double up as a great set of Roadies for your Band, or quite simply in their original guise as Civilians, or even fans if you wish.
You can simply select the 'Band and Roadies' pledge level if you would like the Band and one set of Roadies, These are, however, limited in number.
The leader and agent of the Band, known simply as The Management...
This mysterious character deals with the contracts and arrangements for the Band so that they do not have to, allowing them to concentrate on the important things in life.
All of the above figures have 'slotta' base tabs, which have been designed to fit most types of plastic slotted bases.
Bases are NOT supplied.
There are several reasons for this:
Firstly, whichever type that I chose may not necessarily be compatible with those of any given Backer.
Secondly, I would have to increase the cost of all Pledges to cover this.
Thirdly, and most importantly, the space that they occupy could take parcels from the Large Letter category, which 95% of all parcels so far in previous campaigns have fit into, up to a Small Parcel and thus increase the postage further. This can be quite a significant increase when sending overseas.
Bearing all these factors in mind I have decided it makes more sense not to add them.
Risks and challenges
I have already run many successful Kickstarter campaigns, all of which have funded and have been fulfilled well within the time frame specified at the the time of launch.
I see no reason why this should be any different as the figures have already been sculpted and master moulds have been made to eliminate as much risk of delays as is possible.
This project is to fund the production moulding and casting of the Band.
I have factored in extra time for any delay in casting, so every pledge should be fulfilled in time.
The only problem would be if The Management took exception and sent the boys round, but their payments have been made on time so this should not be an issue....
