"The Bumblebees are an enthusiastic team that keep jumping to the pitch once and over again despite being beaten repeatedly. Halflings are definitely not suited for sports, even less for football. They are short-legged, weak, unskilled and almost every single one has over-weigh problems. But the Bumblebees are not your average halfling team, they have attitude! Sure, they love food and drink! Yeah, maybe too much. But they also believe in their possibilities and are confident in achieving victory sooner or later. Is there anything stonger than self-conviction? An ogre, you might say! But... did I mention that these guys also have invited to play with them a couple of huge treemen? Don't judge a team by its size cause strenght is in the hive and they play... Dodging against all Odds!"
Iron Golems, in collaboration with Two Drunk Flings, is proud to introduce this new project for a Fantasy Football halfling team, the Buzzed Bumblebees! Magnificently sculpted by Stavros Zouliatis in 32mm scale we'll offer it in both metal and high-quality polyurethane resin. The full team consists in 14 different halfling players and 2 treemen that Stavros has already sculpted. The miniatures will be supplied with round 32mm bases. But that's not all! Star players, staff members, gameboards and more extras are ready to make this campaign a very special one!
To get the Add-Ons you only have to increase your pledge by the amount stated in each of them. After the Kickstarter campaign ends you will be able to choose your items via the Pledge Manager form. More Add-Ons may show as the campaign advances so stay tunned!
An easy system that adapts to the base of your miniatures. Two different pieces that fit perfectly to function as one. This set consists of five pairs of pieces from six different colors (green, yellow, grey, blue, orange and purple) and are available for 25mm and 32mm base (choose size in the Pledge Manager after campaign ends). You can also download this brochure with the info on the skills and positions code we propose.
Stretch goals will be unlocked once certain fixed amounts are reached. All of them will be added for free to full and premium team pledges although it is possible that we add new ones in the future as unlocked add-ons. Let's go for it!
The estimated delivery date for the project is October. Please take in consideration that due to the possibility of unlocking stretch goals and getting optional purchases, shipping costs will be applied once the Kickstarter is over so we can calculate the exact amounts. We will collect this via the Pledge Manager we'll send to all backers some weeks after the campaign ends. We'll ship worldwide from Spain, trying to get the better fares possible. Next is a table with the estimated shipping costs we have at this moment:
- Spain: 5€
- Europe: 12€
- Rest of the world: 20€
This halfling team project was never been possible whithout three different components combined: Iron Golems, Two Drunk Flings Podcast, and a wonderful sculptor, Stavros Zouliatis. All three have mixed up to bring you the best looking fling team we could imagine.
Iron Golems is a project formed by two friends, Lucas and Ricardo, who live in Valencia, Spain. We are long-time players of role playing games, wargames and Fantasy Football. Our love of the later game has led us to take the step of creating a brand under which make real our player dreams. We firmly believe that you will be pleased with what we have to offer.
Two Drunk Flings Podcast is a newcomer in the fantasy football focused podcast run by Liam and Alan that has had a really good aceptance by the public due to a special sense of humor and funny experiences while coaching. They are our english soulmates.
Stavros Zouliatis is the artist behind these wonderful sculptures. He really gave each one of them a soul and this team is inconceivable without him. He has had an epic patience to deal with our design request. Thanks for all mate.
The other two artists who have participated in the campaign in the graphics have been Alvaro Ramirez and David Lanza with whom we have worked in the past and we love their work.
Another newcomer to the team is Daniel Guijarro, armed with his brusheshe will give this halfling team and even beautiful look.
To be able to produce this wonderful team we need your support! Not only for the funds needed for the whole process of creating a miniatures team but also to know if our product is welcomed by the wider Fantasy Football community. Your direct support and feedback are very important to us! Also sharing the project at social networks will help to reach more people that could be interested. The more people backing the project more stretch goals we'll be able to unlock! Please follow us and share our publications in Facebook and Twitter. You can also visit our website!
Also take in consideration that a crowdfunding campaign is not like a direct purchase. By pledging in this campaign you're collaborating to make real a product that is not fully developed and needs to be produced, all of this with your support! You'll also need to pay the shipment costs and fill the pledge manager we'll be sending you once the campaign is over so we can prepare and ship your order. To contribute to the campaign you must choose a pledge from the list on the right. Then, if you want to get some add-ons you only need to increase the amount of your contribution to the campaign by the amount stated in each of the add-ons.
Risks and challenges
This is our fourth crowdfunding campaign after a succesfull project for a Fantasy Football Dwarf Team funded in Indiegogo, the amazing Fantasy Football Pro Box campaign funded in Kickstarter and the most recent Wood/Pro Elf Team. The Pro Box campaign was a very complex one due to the different manufacturers involved and the innovative elements we produced and because of that we've learned a lot in the process and we are familiar with the delays that can unexpectedly pop up, whether they be due to production, shipping or customs. Even so, the campaign for the elf teams suffered a lot of delays as we changed the sculptor and the box manufacturer among other things. But that delay was not just a waste of time and we took advantage of the situation to advance in this campaign and be sure that we have everything under control before we start. The result is that almost all miniatures are already sculpted and the premium boxes with their gameboards are in our warehouse. The estimated delivery date for this project is October 2018, but please keep in mind that this is an informed guess. Also note that due to logistical restrictions in different regions, some backers may receive their pledge rewards before others. We will be doing our utmost to avoid these situations.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
