New and last stretch goal...
LV10 now gets you 13 BP miniatures of your choice! 55% Off MSRP
Over the past decade I have directly assisted multiple miniature companies achieve success with their projects. I have both broad and lengthy experience in the miniature industry. My previous work has covered all aspects of miniature production from design to manufacturing, and ranges from working with metal to resin and also plastic materials. Now I am creating my own line of high quality figures and am asking for your help to meet my goals. This project will begin with 10 figures and will expand to add more figures, add-ons, and freebies. If a picture is worth a thousand words than these images should speak for themselves.
Thank you for your interest and support!
These are the BP (Base Pledge) models available with perks from LV1 to LV11. Based on your level you can choose any combination of models from the 13 available below.
More models available to select
The models below can not be choose as one of the models in the various pledge, but can be added only as an Add-On. Just add the corresponding amount to your pledge and you will choose the ones you want with the pledge manager.
This pledge grants you the STL files for the 14 BP models uploaded in the page Ildyn to Sister Mary. No KS exclusive models are included in the offer. The files from Ursula to Jade Devil will all be available for an extra 6$ each.
If you pledged for LV10 or above the STL files are a $60 Add-On. You save 10$
3D Printed Big Sisters Perks:
This perk is a KS exclusive and will never be available again after this KS.
Selecting this perk will entitle you based on the amount pledged to get a high definition printed model in the size you prefer. Each model will be printed using a Form Lab 2 printer at his max resolution in light gray resin.
At the end of the KS in the pledge manager you will be asked the exact size you want and we will print the model for you.
Printed with a FormLab2 printer. The end result is amazing...
Retailers can select the 100$ perk. Minimum order will be 500$. The initial 100$ will be counted in the 500$ minimum order.
Retailers discount will apply. Retailers must be actual retailers. For more details please feel free to contact us.
All retailers models will come with appropriate packaging for display.
Freebies are not counted in this perk.
Shipping costs for rewards will be charged after the campaign and added in the pledge manager. This approach allows us to charge only the actual shipping costs incurred, which will vary based on how many miniatures you take. For 10 or more miniatures the shipping price will be for DHL Worldwide Shipping, with a delivery time between 3 and 5 days. Online tracking will be provided.
We are now also Canada and Australia friendly shipping!
What does this mean? Well we will charge each backer only 1$ for shipping + local Canadian service. This should make shipping cost lower for you and will not involve import taxes. Why? Well we will be paying the taxes for you. New updated prices coming soon for AU and CA!
Estimated delivery date?
Estimated delivery for this project is May/June 2018. There may be minor delays caused by factors that are not under our control such as factory delays, customs, or an additional miniature unlocked late in the campaign. However, please note that we are confident that delays, if any at all, will be brief.
THE DESIGN PROCESS
Our team has many years of experience in miniature design and production. We understand that there is no better way to judge the quality of a model than to hold it in your own hand. The proportions and every detail of a model are best experienced in person. Drawing from our experience and utilizing the best techniques and methods available we stick to the following in order to achieve the best results for each of our models.
1 - DETAILS - Yes, a rendered image looks great, but how well will it paint? We balance details by not overcrowding them and knowing that simple clean lines will produce better finished results both in production and painting.
2 - RENDERS - Renders are just the beginning. All of our models are printed at a high quality for evaluation after they are initially designed. We inspect these test prints to ensure that details and proportions are as intended before committing them to production.
3 - SCALE - Not too big not too small - We want our models to be compatible with the majority of game systems currently on the market. Presently the most common scale has become 32mm.
4 - PRODUCTION - It is not easy to produce the high quality of detail that we aim for in resin models. Knowledge, experience and dedication come together to enable us to achieve this goal. A significant part of our success in production starts in the design process. clean lines and the right quantity of individual pieces enable a higher quality of production.
5 - MATERIAL - For this project we have selected some of the highest quality resin available on the market. Our resin will withstand heat and will also be as flexible as possible. All to help your models avoid actual damage on the battlefield.
6 - UNIQUENESS - One thing we've learned is that each model is different and we approach every new piece with the understanding and expectation that it must be optimized in a unique way. We could write a book covering all of the considerations that come into play for each model, but instead we will just put that experience to work.

SO HOW DOES IT ALL WORK?
Once we have raised the funds to reach our funding goal, the models will be produced at the end of the campaign.
However, reaching the funding goal is not the end!
The campaign will continue beyond the basic rewards of the project and the more people who join the project, the more stretch goals will be unlocked.
The beauty of crowdfunding on Kickstarter is that you can choose how much to spend at any time during the project. This means you can join the project and pledge to get all the rewards of the campaign and are still free to change your mind until the very last minute of the campaign. Conversely, if you like our models you could join with one of the lower pledges and then decide to change your pledge and get a more expensive pledge or add-ons instead. You don't have to worry about choosing the right option, because you can change your pledge at any time. After the funding goal is reached we will announce new stretch goals for the project. The stretch goals will either unlock new add-ons or add free items to your existing pledge, so the more people who join the project the more free items you will get without having to spend. This is a very good reason to help us spread the word on social media and in your own community of gamers. If your friends join the project then both you and they will benefit from it at no additional cost.
Don't want to use a credit card? Or want to join at a later time? Just visit our store and buy the Entry Level for 1$ you will be added to the pledge manager when ready.
Risks and challenges
I have participated in several successfully completed crowdfunding projects in the past and I am confident that rewards will be delivered.
In crowdfunding projects there are always certain variables that could escape the initial plan. As a consequence there is always the possibility of a delay in delivery. These delays are typically caused by last minute additions to the campaign, such as new Stretch Goals, or are a delay within the shipping process itself such as problems with customs releasing the goods, or a delay by one or more manufacturers involved in the project.
