About this project

In the Grimdarkmost far future, war has engulfed the galaxy. A plague has come from the furthest dimensions of the unknown, wiping out whole populations. The plague causes an unspeakable agony as the victim's butt takes on a life of it's own, tearing itself away to attack mindlessly. Perhaps it's some government science project gone awry. Perhaps it's, I don't know, magic or something.

What I do know is: The Butt Wars rage. 

Please note that the product concept images indicate no flying bases are included. As long as the project ends at $1,000 or higher, I will in fact be including the appropriate flying bases, as a promised stretch goal.

And the sky darkened, and there was the rustle of wings. Before we knew it, roaring, reeking death was upon us - horrifying to see, yet strangely dapper.  -Miguel Santos, survivor of the First Butt War

The most dread of all the Butt Empire  - a rampaging Rumpagon!This would be considered a large creature, and would work well on an 60mm base. It's about 3 and a half inches high when on the stand, and a little under 5 inches long.

This will (almost certainly) be the last character - at this point any further   goals will be freebies for the people that have already pledged. 

Speaking of, the next stretch goal will be:

Stretch goal unlocked! - $1,000 - free bases for everyone with a pledge over $1 (i.e. one that would actually need a base). The bases will be black textured plastic with a clear rod, and will be: 25mm for Assault Butts, 40mm for Captain Buttbeard, and 60mm for the Rumpagon. 

Stretch goal unlocked: $2,000 - If the project ends at $2,000 or higher, there will be a free Sir Reginald Buttleson included in every pledge $30 or higher.

Vampire Batts, er, Butts:

These guys will be available with any pledge that is getting a physical product for $6 per base of 3. There is no pledge level for these, just increase your pledge by $6 for each base you want and answer the appropriate question that I'll ask in the survey at the end. 

Additionally, If the kickstarter ends at $2,500 or higher, there will be a free Vampire Butts base included with every pledge of $30 or greater, in addition to whatever else you have. 

Final stretch goal: Ol' Ironbutt!

More Tank than Butt
More Tank than Butt

The most heavily armored of all the butts, Ol' Ironbutt specializes in spearheading the assault. He is appropriate for a 40mm base, which will be included, presuming requirements met. 

Ol' Ironbutt will be available with any pledge that is getting a physical product for $6. There is no pledge level for these, just increase your pledge by $6 for each base you want and answer the appropriate question that I'll ask in the survey at the end. Additionally, If the kickstarter ends at $3,000 or higher, there will be a free Ol' Ironbutt included with every pledge of $30 or greater, in addition to whatever else you have.

Thank you for looking!

Risks and challenges

I'll be making these in my spare time, but am pretty well experienced with casting small projects like this. The only issues I expect to encounter are what Donald Rumsfeld once called the "unknown unknowns". That being said I should be able to make these no problem.

FAQ

  • Yes.

    Last updated:
  • There is a typo in the description. The correct cost, as in the reward title, is $8 (plus $2 if international). The lower price as reflected is accurate and is what is being charged if successful. Sorry about the confusion.

    Last updated:
  • No - these are a little rough and were intended to gauge interest as prototypes ( I didn't realize this project would be even as popular as it is). The final models won't be fundamentally different in design or size, but will be cleaner, tighter sculpts - no one is going to get a model with fingerprints molded into it.

    I'm also likely to change the attachment points for the wings very slightly to make them easier to cast and attach, instead of at an angle now, they're either going to go very slightly lower (to attach at the sides) or very slightly higher (to attach at the top).

    Last updated:
  • I have no intention of doing so. This project will be a one-off run.
