Our intention for our DCM miniatures is to bring forth concepts that are not saturating the painted plastic market, but most importantly that they are created to fit in to many different fantasy worlds.
Our miniatures are made with high density injection molded PVC-type plastic(*insert Tim the Toolman Taylor grunts here*). In order to get these flexibly durable delights in to your hands we need to fulfill minimum orders, cover expensive tooling, and mold costs for each new figure.
Why are we doing it? We want a line of ready to play product. We want stuff that doesn't require assembly, that can be carted around in a backpack, tossed in a sorting drawer, or dropped on the floor without stressing or breaking (can't prevent pet mishandling). Most of all we want Minis for our games that you can use in many of yours.
Come on Botanimoth!!
Our Kickstarter is set up to feature new Sculpts (figures) as Stretch Goals. In between our stretch goals we are doing mini stretches referred to as "Check Points" for the pre-painted versions of our sculpts.
By splitting the sculpt and pre-painted goals we're able to fund the basics such as artwork, prototyping and molding costs in the first goal, and then the extra production costs of the paint jobs in the second goal. Also, having two stages allows us to cater to two different markets, the DIYers that like to paint and the guys that want it ready to play out of the box!
NAT = Unpainted, PPM = Production Paint,
& KSX = Kickstarter Exclusive.
Don't want to use our crazy bases? The KS figure bases are removable from the figure.
Our Supporters are important to us, and we are determined to prove it whether through private messages, comments, or simply by having a campaign with customization features & rewards for everyone interested in minis.
Below is a chart revealing our Stretch Plan for this campaign. Highlighted cells are a quick guide to pricing multiples of miniatures that have been achieved in this campaign.
If you want to back us and aren't sure what level is the sweet spot for minis & rewards - right now it's Deep Sea Crew - start there! If you want to start at a lower pledge, try Skeleton Crew for multiples of the painted Firbolg Skeleton & the Mermaid Stretch Reward. Then just follow the updates! Easy as pie. :)

And at the end of the campaign we will send everyone a email to the survey link, and use the Kickstarter survey for final confirmation of addresses for your orders.
Combat Counters can be used to track which monster is which, to track damage, to countdown as a timer, to track psionic points, or any thing else based on numbers.
There are 4 colored number dials (0-9) that come in groups of 8 with 16 pegs.
Packs of Combat Clips contain the following (1 of each):
- A Flag,
- A Banner,
- A Torch,
- A Hovering Sphere,
They can be used to: track light sources, statuses, or allegiances on the battle mat. All four come painted. The banners come painted as canvas, ready to be customized by you.
We can now offer Blank DCM Bases thanks to the efforts of 20 special people (many thanks)! We have Small, 1x1, 2x1, 2x2 & 3x3 10 packs available.
You can add-on any of the 10 packs below or add-on our special Vampire Bundle for $50. The Vampire Bundle has twenty three 1x1 ten pack bases, two 2x2 ten pack bases and one 3x3 ten pack bases for a total of 260 bases (more than enough for a good start).
This set of 3 quarter-sized metal coins comes in Dwarven, Elven and Keldornan!
The old Keldornan Eagles are simple pressed gold measured by the metals weight alone.
The Gold Dwarves of Stonehold use uniquely squared coins called Durgots passed down throughout generations of Dwarven history.
Currency is a concept foreign to Elves. They have difficulty finding value in "precious metals" that are not formed in to works of art. The Alliance introduced the Stags as currency to the Elves of the Sylvan Lands to strengthen the bond that the Alliance formed between the Elves, Dwarfs, and Humans, honouring this custom and thus further opening trade routes.

That's Us! We are just 2 people not afraid of hard work, doing what we love, making games and meeting people. We have been successful as a Mom & Pop Shop in our business ventures, manufacturing products for the Dungeon Crawler Universe.
We are pretty new to the miniatures industry, as our first miniatures came out in late 2011 early 2012. Up until the now the manufacturing of our miniatures have been funded by 3rd party licencing.
We did this because we are Plasti-Addicts, and our favorite is Pre-painted. We've been collecting pre-painted minis (PPMs) since 2003, we have a very good idea of what is already in collector's hands.
We invite you to enjoy your Dungeon Crawler minis (DCMs) in your favorite campaign setting or ours, let your imaginations run wild, after all, that's what table-top gaming is all about! Or you can choose to add them to your Kickstarter Pledge, these and the card game are Add-on items ONLY.
Don't want to wait, order some now.
Everything will ship together or will be split in to as few stages as necessary (but, we will keep you abreast of all situations). Shipping is included for continental USA backers, and International backers add $15 to their pledges depending on their reward level.
*Note that we do not usually ship to Italy or Argentina. We are willing to ship to Italy and Argentina for our KS and will provide a confirmation # as usual, but if the package goes missing we will not be sending replacements. Our only other alternative is to not include these countries in our campaign.
We're a Canadian based company and we're in the tight spot of counting Canada as an "international" country because of KS settings. So, for those Canadians that back us, we're going to offer you a $10 credit at the end of the campaign which you can use towards anything that this campaign is directly responsible for funding. So, this will not include; the ECG, From the Depths, Omens or Town Folk. This will be in exchange for you having to cover the shipping costs of being "international" while just being over the border from our US-based fulfillment house.
You can place badges your signatures on forums or emails, put them as your avatars, and basically whenever you can - link to this campaign.
We are an Indie company and we know how hard it is to work to fulfill your dream, so we are proud to support other indie companies!

Risks and challenges
Depending on the size of the order we place, the delivery date may be delayed. As we have several of the prototypes completed at the start of the campaign we should be able to go straight to our manufacturers once we've received the KickStarter funds. We've done our best to estimate the time required for manufacturing by taking the manufacturer's quoted time vs our experiences and adding what we feel as a sufficient buffer. Our timeline can also be affected by the workload of the manufacturer (whether or not they can make us a priority), which we have no control over.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
