This is a simple and straightforward project which aims to put miniature wargaming units of Warbears and Stagriders in your hands without a two year delivery wait. We have created one of each of the two sets of beasts and riders so far, which you can see painted examples of here. They are 28mm scale and made of white metal alloy. They are unpainted and come in several parts each. They were designed to be used with our The Shattered Crown wargame rules but will fit any number of fantasy settings, or simply look fabulous in your display cabinet. This Kickstarter is to raise funds to expand these models into units, by sculpting and then casting variations of the existing models. In the case of the bear, two new poses for the bear, and two new riders, whilst for the stags, two new poses for the beasts themselves and 5 new variations of rider. This will be sculpted and cast by the exact same team as the ones we already have, so you needn’t worry about the quality. Every pledge also includes completely FREE of charge the most recent Beta rules for The Shattered Crown. You can download a copy of the work in progress rules from our Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/880558895369078/
You can also find our more about the game, and our first game, Across the Dead Earth, at www.deadearth.co.uk
All pledge levels include free beta rules for The Shattered Crown.
Our Warbear and Stagrider models were created to be just two small parts of two great armies - representing the Houses of Hellesburne and Khra. As such, we have already created some additional models which are now available as add-ons to any pledge level. Simply add the amount to your pledge whilst keeping the same level. We'll clarify exactly what you want before sending.
There is no need to add additional postage funds.
If you'd like a number of Bears or Stags not covered by our pledge options, you can add more simply by sending us a message and adding the amount we quote you, the prices are as follows BUT PLEASE NOTE, we will have to provide a new quote for shipping:
If you have ordered ONE miniature or ONE OF EACH add
£5 per additional Stag and £8 per additional bear.
If you have ordered ONE unit of either Bears OR Stags add:
£7 per additional Bear or £5 per additional Stag/£9 per 2 additional Stags
If you have ordered ONE UNIT OF EACH add
£6 per additional Bear or £4 per additional Stag
No Kickstarter campaign would be complete without Stretch Goals! As we have the entire world and lore of The Shattered Crown to choose from, we have invited all backers so far to VOTE on what they would like Stretch Goals to be. Hrashnarr the Hunter won the first round of voting to become Stretch Goal ~1 and has since been unlocked.
This Sorceress on a White Tiger won the vote to become our second stretch goal target
Q: I have ordered X number of Stagriders/Warbears. Will I be sent a random one/selection or will I get to choose from those available?
A: You will be ENTIRELY free to choose how many of each of the finished sculpts make up your order, whether you have pledged for 1 or 20 Stagriders and Warbears.
Risks and challenges
We see very few real risks in this project. Dead Earth Games was established in 2013 and our first game, Across the Dead Earth was successfully funded on Kickstarter in 2014, shipping ON TIME that same year.
In terms of making miniatures, we have worked with EVERYONE involved in this project every step of the way before, and chosen to do so again.
Our sculptors Duncan and Russ always deliver to us when they say they will. Our 3D printers go out of their way to be as helpful and punctual as possible. Our casters is less than 4 miles away, and have never let us down, even when incredibly busy.
Delay can creep into projects from time to time, as anyone who has funded miniature wargames Kickstarters before will know. Well, other people's anyway, did I mention ours shipped on time? For some backers, it was a month early :-)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
