Since a child, I've had two constant interests in my life. One was for animals--I've collected and read numerous books regarding the study of animals as well as fictional stories in which animals where prominent characters. I've also loved to draw and I especially like cartoons and animation. So I finally got with Pat and discussed combining these passions and talents into a new line of critter miniatures.
The result is a fantastic list of cute critters of many animal types from many popular genres, including Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Western, and more, that we hope you'll enjoy. The core set begins with several characters with medieval Asian influence, but stretch goals will encompass various other genres. Care is taken to size the figures so they are compatible with other models from the most popular manufacturers within the 28mm to 32mm range of heroic scale sizes. KritterKins™ are cast in high quality pressure-cast urethane resin that reproduces almost exactly the detail of the original sculpt. All models are supplied unpainted and some assembly may be required.
Why return to Kickstarter? We have all of the models shown ready to go into production, but molding, mastering, and casting runs are expensive. It would take us longer to raise the funds to put these models into production over time than if we ask for funds to make a collection of them at one time. We want to get these models out to you as soon as possible, and through Kickstarter, YOU can make that possible.
Since we funded in just over 24 hours from launch, we are currently selecting additional KritterKins to offer as upcoming stretch goals and will be posting more art, sculpts, and ideas along the way.

We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter based on the actual costs. This will be collected via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. DO NOT INCLUDE ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO COVER YOUR POSTAGE PAYMENT IN YOUR PLEDGE!
Any funds collected through the KS system are reduced by 10% when KS takes out their fees. This means that any funds collected to cover postage are 10% less than what is actually needed to cover postage IF the postage rates do not increase between the time of billing and shipping. (Postal rates have increased on us during our projects at least once prior to fulfillment. In one case the rates increased twice!)
After the campaign ends, backers will be able to select their rewards via the pledge manager. Shipping costs will be calculated and collected at that time. You will also be able to select additional rewards options at that time if you wish.
Postage will be billed by region when backers make their choices via our pledge management system. All postage fees must be paid at that time before shipment can be completed. Rewards will be posted from the US to all backer's addresses.
Postage ESTIMATES by region: (Please note these are estimates only. Your actual shipping charge may be higher or lower depending on the type of shipping selected and your region.)
