About

Welcome aboard, mateys! Join us as we set sail on the undead seas, in this, our first Pirate Fantasy Miniatures Kickstarter. 

This campaign seeks to bring to your tabletop a crew of Dwarf Pirates, along with an Elf and an Orc. There are 5 different dwarf sculpts available to pledge for plus an extra, exclusive Kickstarter variant Chef figurine which is free to all backers of the Magnificent Seven pledge.

Miniatures will be cast in white metal and will be supplied unpainted. All miniatures are single piece models and will be supplied with a plastic base. Dwarves are scaled for use with human figures of the 28mm scale.

In addition to the miniatures - as if they weren't enough - all backers will be given access to the beta rules for our Fantasy Pirate Skirmish game. Though still testing - the game is fully playable and ready to enjoy with your new figures!

 POSTAGE

Postage costs will be charged AFTER the Kickstarter campaign, so please be aware of this. Postage will be charged at Royal Mail rates. The reasons postage is to be added after are two fold: 

Partly - we don't actually know for sure how much the miniatures will weight in metal, though given the known parameters this is unlikely to cause a problem

Mainly - Kickstarter counts funds pledged for postage as pledged to the campaign if they are added during the campaign. These means we might hit the £2.5k target but actually be paying a considerable amount of that to the Royal Mail, especially if we get a lot of backers from around the world. This could jeopardise being able to pay for the miniatures themselves to be case.

STRETCH GOALS?

We've run a couple of Kickstarters before. We really liked being able to deliver on time. We didn't do that with our last one, and part of the reason for that was that it started simple and then we complicated it by adding and adding extra stretches. So, we aren't doing that. This Kickstarter is intended to be the beginning of a game world of fantasy pirates, and we want to deliver as soon as possible so that we can carry on honing the rules and planning more crews. As such, there will be only one stretch goal. Meet Beery: 

 If we make our initial funding goal, we will then set a target at which Beery will be added, at no additional cost, to Magnificent Seven pledges. 

Risks and challenges

There are no risks with the project being fulfilled. All sculpts are already sculpted and 3d printed, ready to be made into moulds and cast if funding is successful. Our previous Kickstarter did deliver late, and we have tried to mitigate against the chance of this happening by having more ready to go at the point of launch. We are much more hopeful to deliver on time. This is also the reason we have avoided complex stretch goals which can cause delay.
