Want to see the entire underworld sculpted in 28mm scale? Our initial funding goal was toppled in just 7 hours....let's keep it going!

LAST MINUTE STRETCH GOAL! Click the link below for more details. We need to hit $66,600 to achieve this one...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/centerstageminis/28mm-demons-and-devils-center-stage-miniatures/posts

In just a matter of hours, you won't be able to get any of these miniatures at KS prices. And with over 31 miniatures in exchange for a $75 pledge reward, that's A LOT to miss.

Center Stage Miniatures started this project to fund the production of two greens - and due to your outpouring of support, we've turned those two figures into a veritable ARMY of new devil and demon miniatures for fantasy role-playing games. All of these figures are cast either in lead-free metal or high quality gray resin.

In the last few days, we've added a massive dragon add-on, as well as several other stretch and bonus goals. 

The Dragon King is available as a $75 add-on. Or, if you'd like to support our project and are only interested in the Dragon King miniature, we've added a "DRAGON KING ONLY" pledge reward for $75.

Right now, our most popular "pledge" level is $75 - and your reward selection includes a massive number of the new demon and devil miniatures! Take a look:

There are also many "Add-Ons" for backers. Some are available to all backers, while others are available only to those with the $75 and $100 reward packages. The ADD-ONS are listed below - including Tyranthrax, First of the Molydeii, CSM's new demon prince.

CSM's original demon lord, Tyranthrax, comes with statistics for using him in the Swords & Wizardry and OSRIC role-playing games written by Matt Finch, the creator of Swords & Wizardry!

For those of you who are visiting us for the first time, the story of how this project came to be is below. Please read our story below, and know that none of this would be possible without you, our backers!

******

Center Stage Miniatures has been producing high-quality 25 and 28mm miniatures for use in fantasy role-playing games since 2009. With over 40 figures available in our Advanced Fantasy Miniatures range and the recent acquisition of the Julie Guthrie Fantasy Personalities range (196 figures), we've been growing in leaps and bounds thanks to you, our customers.

Our regular sculptors include industry veterans like Patrick Keith, Jason Wiebe, Tim Prow, as well as some extremely talented newer sculptors like Nicolas and Federico Genovese.

In our second year of business, I decided to begin tackling the Demons and Devils of the underworld, so I commissioned a Molydeus from Tim Prow and  Baphomet, Demon Lord of Minoaturs from Jason Wiebe.

I've wanted to do even more since then, but have been sidelined by other more mainstream monsters for RPGS.

Recently, Federico Genovese completed his first sculpt for me, a Horned Devil, based on the old-school illustrations found in RPG books.

A few weeks later, he had an Ice Devil ready. "Fed," I said, "Slow down, I can't put all of these into production at once...!"

He replied that he had already started a Pit Fiend, several Manes, and other demons from the underworld. I thought to myself - this sounds like a great Kickstarter - "Let's see how many of these awesome denizens of the underworld we can get into the hands of gamers and miniature collectors!"  --- (ALL OF THESE DEMONS AND DEVILS ARE SCULPTED IN 28MM SCALE AND INCLUDE PLASTIC SLOTTED BASES!)

*** I'm extremely excited about this range, because not only are these figures usable with any role-playing game or system out there, but the majority of these figures have their basis in literature or history. Whether it's a name, layer of the underworld, or specific demon or devil, all at some point got their start in history, myth or legend.***

A little about the sculptor - Federico Genovese is the brother of Nicolas Genovese, who has done a great job on our Giants range at CSM. I've been itching to get Fed on board at Center Stage, and now that his energy is up, we're ready to "fill the Nine Hells" with miniatures!

Fed specializes in demons and dragons - two of his dragon sculpts are available through miniatures giant Dark Sword Miniatures. He's eager to reach our stretch goals and begin sculpting even LARGER demons and devils! 

SO WHAT DO YOU GET?

So on to the REALLY cool stuff - the Stretch Goals:

We will commission (1) Bone Devil, (2) Barbed devils, (1) Succubus and (2) Spined Devils which will be included in all $75 reward packages or higher. In addition, we'll commission veteran sculptor Patrick Keith to sculpt an Erinyes devil, based on this old-school illustration we commissioned from legendary artist Jeff Dee. The Erinyes will be included in all reward packages $75 or higher as well.

We will commission  (1) Horned Devil II (Variant), (1) Demon I and (1) Demon II which will be included in all $75 reward packages or higher.

We will commission (1) Demon III, (1) Demon IV and (1) Demon V which will be cast in lead-free metal and included in all $75 reward packages or higher.

We will commission (1) Demon VI, (1) Fiend from the Pit, (1) Imp and (1) Quasit which will be included in all $75 reward packages or higher.

ON TO THE BONUS GOALS!

It's time for the big boys - and by big boys, we mean DEMON AND DEVIL LORDS AND RULERS! We will commission Geryon, Moloch, and Graz'zt, which will be available to all rewards packages $75 and higher for a $20 add-on.These rulers of the lower planes are all cast in the same durable, high-quality gray resin we use for all of our non-metal figures. These are NOT small, human sized 28mm miniatures - especially Geryon. The add-on price is far less than the cost of Geryon alone will be once these products are added to our product range for general sale at the end of 2013. 

We will commission the pot-bellied and ram-headed Prince of the Undead and fellow arch-devil Mammon, which will be available to all rewards packages $75 and higher for a $20 add-on. These rulers of the lower planes are all cast in durable, high-quality gray resin. These are NOT small, human sized 28mm miniatures - especially Mammon. The add-on price is far less than the cost of Geryon alone will be once these products are added to our product range for general sale at the end of 2013.

If we reach $25K, we'll unlock two drone-like dretches for your armies of Hell. Order as many as you would like, exclusive miniature comes in sets of two. The only bad news is that it's two of the same model. They are drones, after all.

*(Can be ordered by ANY level at the Add-On rate.) Cast in resin.

UNLOCKED! The Abishai, the dark dragon-like servitors of the Lord of Evil Dragons, are now AVAILABLE for $8 each. Another KS exclusive model, which will be retired once the KS is over. You can order multiples, if you wish.

*(Can be ordered by ANY level at the Add-On rate.) Cast in resin.

Asmodeus' daughter is now included FREE in all $75 pledge reward packages and higher.

NOW AVAILABLE! The two-headed Prince of Demons and his lashing forearms are available as a $20 add-on for backers of $75 and more.. The add-on package also includes the devil himself - the man (fiend?) - Asmodeus, ruler of all things evil. In what other project can you say you purchased the two toughest demons and devils in the underworld for $20?

UNLOCKED! All backers at the $75 reward level and higher will receive (1) Princess of Hell miniature, too. The daughter of Asmodeus is as conniving as she is beautiful. She has been known to be the source of hatred and animosity between demon princes, as she pits one lover against another...All three miniatures will be available in resin.

The deeper you descend, the BIGGER the rewards and opportunities!

 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

This section will be updated frequently once this Kickstarter project has launched.

FAQ

  • As most of you know, international shipping from the US isn't cheap - and if you go over a certain weight limit, it becomes cost-prohibitive.

    What I can say is that a USPS Priority Mail International Flat Rate Large Box can hold up to 20 pounds of miniatures, is fairly large in size, and costs $60.95 USD. To offset that cost - and the 20 lb. shipping limit - if we hit the $5K stretch goal, all backers at the $75 Level and Higher will have the option of selecting ALL of their rewards in RESIN instead of metal. In other words, I am confident that if you select resin and are an international bidder, you could acquire all of the Stretch Rewards (including those not yet announced) for a MAXIMUM of $60.95 shipping.

    All Kickstarter rewards will be sent and pressed carefully between layers of self-stick bubble wrap to ensure safety during mailing and to reduce the cost of shipping everything in standard "retail" packaging. The retail packs would not only increase the needed box size, but probably the weight of the parcel as well.

    The best part is that International Flat Rate Priority shipping provides proof of mailing and is delivered normally in 6-10 calendar days.

    To close, I would also like to add that I am not looking to "pad" shipping charges. If you are an International backer, you will pay only the actual cost of shipping, not anything more.

    Hope that helps answer some questions!

  • See above. We're not trying to be "wise guys," here, but overseas shipping is very costly, hence the previous post. However, we'll do everything we can to help our friends outside the US make it work. Currently, the plan is to add two "complimentary" miniatures from our existing ranges to all international parcels, and cap the shipping at $60. Or, we've talked about making all overseas customers rewards in RESIN ONLY and capping shipping at $30. We'll keep you posted, but rest assured, whatever we come up with, we're trying to work it out!

  • By popular request, YES! However, METAL castings are not an option with multiple rewards. For example, if you selected one of the LIMITED $75 or $100 pledge rewards, your initial miniatures will be in metal (unless you opt for resin and the $20 credit) but any additional pledge rewards packages you select will be in RESIN.
