28mm fantasy miniatures compatible with Swords & Wizardry and Pathfinder based on the Tome of Horrors Complete by Frog God Games.

So what do I get, and for how much? I want as many miniatures as I can lay my hands on!

One of our fantastic backers has created a "pledge calculator" so you can see what you get and for how much! Click on the lnk below to see what each pledge level can receive!

The $100 and $200 levels have the potential to grow IMMENSELY as our backer pool increases. The more pledges, the more miniatures unlocked, and the more freebies added ad different levels!

Who is doing the sculpting? And why aren't all the greens ready NOW?

We've already made contact with our regular sculptors Tim Prow, Mark Evans, Jason Wiebe, Nicholas Genovese and Patrick Keith. We've also contracted with two sculptors who are new to CSM -  Gary Morley, a former Games Workshop sculptor, and Drew Williams. We're excited about acquiring some new talent on that front! Now that we've acquired our initial funding goal, they are hard at work - We'll continue to show their talents as time goes on, but these are the miniatures completed so far, so you can see how exciting the rest of this project will be!

Pretty cool so far! Tell me about the rest of the project. What are the rewards levels, stretch goals, and more?

At the $87.4K funding level, we add 2 more LARGE miniatures - a Gorgimera and a Furnace Golem to all pledge rewards packages of $200+. They will be available as swaps for the $25/$50$75 packages, and swaps OR $5 add-ons at the $100 level.

At the $95.5K funding level, we add 2 more LARGE miniatures - a Shedu and the Archdevil Lucifer, as well as the (M) sized Chalkydri to all pledge rewards packages of $200+. They will be available as swaps for the $25/$50$75 packages, and swaps OR $5 add-ons at the $100 level.


I'm very confident that this Kickstarter is FULL of value, and anything past this reward level is pushing the capacity of a growing company to fulfill in a reasonable amount of time. Thus, with the acquisition of the actual Tome of Horrors terrain piece miniature, we conclude our offering of stretch goals and rewards. We don't want to overpromise, and at this point, we're confident fullfillment of everything will happen within the allotted time and right on schedule.

This Kickstarter is just the beginning, however - Center Stage Miniatures has signed a five-year contract with Frog God Games to produce miniatures from this hulking volume. If you didn't see your favorite in this particular Kickstarter, we welcome your discussions, suggestions, and ideas over on our forums at www.centerstageminis.com.

Thank you for your support!

About Us

Since 2009, Center Stage Miniatures has taken pride in producing old-school fantasy miniatures for use with tabletop RPGs. We started with only a few releases our first year, but have built up momentum and now have over 250+ products ready to be integrated into our online store this Spring and Summer. With the acquisition of some major  miniature ranges, most notably the Julie Guthrie Fantasy Personalities (from Grenadier Models/Mega Miniatues) and Dungeon Crawl Classics Miniatures (from Goodman Games), we're poised to support your need for high-quality fantasy miniatures for years to come!

We will begin setting up our own in-house metal casting operations, as well, in 2014, thanks to several dedicated investors and our continuing growth.

CSM has already completed two very successful Kickstarter projects - our Demons and Devils Kickstarter ($65K+) and Torn World RPG Miniatures Kickstarter ($4K+). Torn World is in mail-order fulfillment as you read this (a month earlier than projected!), and our Demon/Devils Kickstarter reward surveys just went out, and casting is keeping our affiliates at Valiant Enterprises busy all month long.


And a big "Thank You..."

...goes out to "Skeeter" Green, Chuck Wright, and Rachel Ventura of Frog God Games, for being as excited about this project as I am and helping get this Kickstarter set up. Your enthusiasm is motivational! To Skeeter, specifically for helping set up the later pledge rewards and making errata changes and being my biggest cheerleader, to Chuck for his T-shirt design, and to Rachel for appearing in our promotional video (and for not letting me scare our backers away by being in the video myself!)

And thanks also to Bill Webb for allowing us to move forward with the Frog God licensed ranges; and to Matt Finch, a good friend, class act and fellow businessman who believes in second chances.

...and finally, but NEVER least, our backers, without whom this project never could have happened. "Thank you," from the bottom of our hearts!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The two biggest challenges facing any miniatures producer are waiting for sculpts to be completed and then the production time required to fulfill all of the castings required in a Kickstarter project.

But as you know, crowdfunding has become increasingly popular and is now a means used by many different miniature manufacturers to fund their projects.

Our current contract casting company, Valiant Enterprises, has never let us down on the timely shipment of an order and their quality has been impeccable. They assure me that their facility has never been truly tested to "capacity," meaning that they have yet to encounter a job that throws them off schedule!

As you can see from our "About Us," our Demons and Devils Kickstarter is shipping a few months behind schedule. That - as I explain in this section - is due to latecoming sculpts (many miniatures were commissioned after the KS funded! Imagine one sculptor cranking out the bulk of an entire range in six months - he's still lightning fast!)

Sometimes a company has no control over "3rd party" delays should they occur, but that has not been our experience to date.

Other than that, both Frog God (our licensor) and CSM have excellent track records of customer communication. We welcome and value your support!

  • We've already commissioned six of the initial miniatures for this KS and will commission the rest the MINUTE our funding goal is met. The concepts show you the artwork that each miniature is based on, so look for something very similar. It is our hope to have at least a half dozen greens to show before the Kickstarter itself ends, perhaps even more!
