Hello and welcome to our second Kickstarter ! As many of you already know our first try have failed, but we promised our friends that we will be back, so here we are, with the old 2 models and 2 brand new ones!

Why we are on Kickstarter ?
Why we are on Kickstarter ?

All of the models shown already modeled and test printed, ready to go into production. We need your help for the final phase: molding, mastering, and casting runs are expensive. It would take us a lot of time to raise the funds to put  these models into production over time and we ask for funds to make all models printed and packed. We want to put these models into your hands  as soon as possible, and Kickstarter can make that possible.

 We are a group of friends from Italy, avid players of Wargames, Role  Playing Games and miniatures painting and collecting. I personally have a  miniature collection started in 1985 with thousands of pieces; maybe we  can say that we played more or less every game with miniatures of the  last 30 years… Now we want to create the miniatures we waited uselessly  for years that someone else can produce. We have had our miniatures  sculpted by some of the best artist of the world, and we will print them  on the best services on the market. We strive to give you the best of  the best service available.

Iyaxill, Orc Champion

The Orcs are a nomadic people, and can be found nearly in all lands of Valenor (it is said that some Orcs live even in the oceans!). Iyaxill, like many Orcs, is a follower of Gharuk, the God of Fire. But his faith is so strong that he has become a Choosen of Gharuk, a priest of sort but a powerful user of fire magic.

Few enemies can stand before a giant Orc in full tribal armour and wielding fire as his weapon. When a Choosen of Gharuk call a tribe to war, thousands of Orcs reply to his call, hundreds of Firestone slinger pelt the enemy line with explosive stones, giant fire elementals walk at the side of priests of Gharuk trampling anything that stands before them...

Gutmeg: Goblin Rifleman

A Goblin is smaller and weaker than all other races of Valenor, and in a world where slavery is practiced the Goblin race suffered more than any other. Goblin can be vicious fighter, that use any tricks and any means to beat an enemy, but usually they get beaten back and defeated.

When the first firearms appeared on the market, for the Goblin was an item sent from the gods. With a firearm a Goblin is the same as any other race, the Great Equalizer. Some Goblins take this to the extreme and create a real cult of Gunpowder.

The Gunpowder Cult is a group of fanatics that revere their weapons and live only to tally how many they kills. (All non-cult creatures are fair target) some of them get the "Flamebearer" rank, like Gutmeg, to show their total dedition to the cult. Losing their weapon is the worst offense a Gunpowder Cult member can do, even if they acquire a new weapon, the old one must be handed down to a new member of the cult. To this end the Flamebeares hold their firepowder reserve stocked under a constant flame the carry on their back. When a Flamebearer fear to be defeted, he opens the flame conduit to reach the gunpowder storage, immulating himself as a living bomb.

For our second year models we want to change our creation process, so instead of historical research and lore history we started from scratch. We put a lot of ideas on paper, burned them and start again a couple of time until we have a number of original stories and character ideas, then we contacted the great Aitor Holgado  a really talented artist to develop our ideas. He got us a lot of great miniatures ideas, and we choose two: Iyaxill & Gutmeg.

We then give the design of Gutmeg to Alessandro Depaoli our great 3D artist, and Iyaxill to a young but talented sculptor: Ocampo Lopez Julio Cesar from Argentina !

Konohana: Oni Namanari
Konohana: Oni Namanari

Namanari are female demons or oni (Kijo). They were once human women  who were consumed by jealousy and transformed into demonesses. Namanari  still resemble human women. They have small horns and use dark magic to  perform their evil deeds, such as summoning ikiryo to attack their  enemies. They are not completely evil; there remains a chance for these  beginner demons to return to humanity. Konohana was a beautyful woman  bethroted to prince Otogi, submissive and learned as befitted a prince wife. During the battle of Watahama, prince Otogi was captured and  transformed in a creature of the shadow. Released, he returned to his  castle, but his new nature quickly showed themself. He submitted  Konohana to all sort of evil practices, until finally turning her into a demon like him. Finally turned in an Oni, Konohana and Otogi married.  The ceremony was dark and perverse and summoned a lot of terrible creatures from the world of demons. Now as a full demon princess, she ride at the side of Otogi often wielding his marriage gift: The Dominatrix Lash, a Katana that turn all the people  it killed into Zombies.

Work in Progress
Work in Progress

The project for our Konohana model started, as usual, from the research. We want to create completely original models, so we start with searching for documentation, we look for interesting bits and ideas  that we think will make the difference from a NICE model to a GREAT  model. The second step was sending all the research work to our 2D  artist:  Bokuman. He work with the reference to create a new model, with  his style and his original ideas. After some revisions we have sent the  2D arts to Daniele Danko Angelozzi a really great 3D artist! He started from the  2D arts but was free to elaborate on the concept and he do a really great job, not only mantaining the original idea, but inserting a lot of marvelous details that will let you love to paint this model!

The final art, was created by our very talented Paolo Maddaleni.

Otogi: Oni Samurai
Otogi: Oni Samurai

Prince Otogi was a chivalrous samurai, pledged to a girl of great beauty and virtue, Lady Konohana. During the battle of Watahama prince Otogi  was captured by the enemy and transformed in a creature of the shadows.  Corrupted by the darkness he returned to his castle and begun to influence all the people around him. Slowly his castle become a  receptacle of the most depraved warriors, oni and monsters alike. The humans of his village flee or became corrupted from his darkness. Who suffered the most heinous acts was Konohana, slowly transformed in a Namanari, a demon of Envy and Lust. After the dark marriage where he finally corrupted Konohana, the Lords from the neighbour realms take heed of the terrible danger and set out to destroy the evil couple. After a long  and terrible battle the corrupted couple flee the destruction of their castle, carrying with them their treasures and the most faithful of servants. Now they roam the lands, killing and pillaging.

The project for our Otogi model started from research in Japanese history and lores.  We set out to create a companion model for our Konohana Oni Model. Our  plan is as always to create completely original models, so we start with  searching for documentation, looking for interesting bits and ideas  that we think will make the difference from a NICE model to a GREAT  model. The second step was sending all the research work to our 2D  artist:  Bokuman. He work with the reference to create a new model, with  his style and his original ideas. This time he have to elaborate a  companion model, so he stick to replicate some key elements in the new  model. After some revisions we have sent the 2D arts to Alessandro Depaoli our great 3D artist. He started from the 2D arts but was free to  elaborate on the concept, not only he created an astounding model,  mantaining the original idea and style, but inserting a lot of great  details that let this model really stand out!

The final art, was created, again, by Paolo Maddaleni. 

As i said, we come from a long history of gaming, and in time we have  created a fantastic list of classic character archetypes as well as new  characters from many popular genres including Sci-Fi, Fantasy,  Steampunk, Weird West, Pulp and more. To not put too much confusion in  our projects, we choose to start with for the core set of our 90mm Fantasy  Line as well as numerous stretch goals. We have done a lot of study on our fantasy world, called Windship Traders TM, created rules for wargaming that will be released in another kickstarter, as well as rules  and stats for all the mayor miniatures game that you already own.

I’m an avid miniatures collector, of all size and producers, but me and my friends have had a lot of thoughts on some model: 

• This model is wonderful, but at 28-32mm it’s too small to really show his potential… 

• I love great size model, but i like to play with them too… how can i place them on a battlefield?

To  solve this, we planned our own miniature line! Where all the character will be available in two size: 90mm and 32mm. During the last Kickstarter we proposed the sell of both scale models together, but we got a mixed response, not all of you are interested in buying both miniatures. This time we separated the offers. this Kickstarter will only sell the 90mm miniatures, the 32mm will be sold separately.

Our 90mm are  mastercrafted by some of the best sculptor available, to give you a  fantastic experience painting them. All the miniatures are cast in the  finest resin, to assure as much of the details of the original sculpt is  preserved. All models are supplied unpainted and some assembly may be  required. All miniatures will come with a Certificate of Authenticity  and will have a limited casting. All the master will be destroyed at the  end of the campaign.

The starting offer for Kickstarter is an incredible value for your money:

 Our Iyaxill. Orc Champion pack and our Gutmeg, Goblin Rifleman at the price of only one pack.

Our Konohana. Namanari Oni pack and our Otogi, Oni of Shadows at the price of only one pack.

The Full Pack with Konohana. Namanari Oni pack, Otogi, Oni of Shadows, Iyaxill. Orc Champion pack and our Gutmeg, Goblin Rifleman at a super discounted price of only 119 Euros.

This offer is so good that we can afford to sell only a limited  number of models. If all the projected print run goes sold before the  end of the kickstarter, we will think of a new print run, but inevitably  with a different price.

So… first come, first served!

All the pack contains one 90mm miniatures, the certificate of authenticity, a print of the art signed by the artist and a limited number ID for your miniature.

If we reach the main goal for the first two miniatures, we have  planned more stretch goals; more miniatures from our Windship Trader  world will be discovered and offered to you. 

Please note that no miniature will be offered for free as a stretch goal.

The  new miniatures will be made available with the same discount, the first  will be paid and the second will be added free to the pack. 

All the stretch goals will be “game ready” as the main project miniatures, with rules for WTC, D20, etc… If there is a good request we can add more rules compatibility.

We have already signed contracts to send all the shipping to be made within the EU, so no charges apply to EU customer.

No shipping cost and no Custom expenses for EU customer.

We can also offer Free Shipping for the following country: Canada, China, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong,  Japan, Iceland, Israel, Italy, San Marino, United States of America,  Vatican, Switzerland, Turkey.

All other country are still to be defined, but range from 10€ to 40€. 

Outside EU we cannot comply with Custom duties payment. 

Risks and challenges

The miniatures for the base pledge have been already sculpted and test printed, the masters are ready and we only need to finalize the final printing run, if some problem will arise with the stretch goals we are sure to be able to solve them quickly. This is our second try at Kickstarter but we are confident that we have learned from our errors and planned for many contingency, so we are confident we can deliver, on time !
