About

The Order of the Indigo Cross is a concept focused on creating a line of female miniatures that are both elegant and practical in their design. Each figure has been sculpted as a unique character, and stand at 32mm from foot to eye. These figures have been designed with both hobbyists and collectors in mind, making for a great addition to pre-existing collections, the beginning of a hobby, or simply being collected for the enjoyment of painting. 


Why Kickstarter?

For me, Kickstarter is realistically the only way that the Order of the Indigo Cross will be produced, as all pledges will go directly into covering the initial outlay costs associated with commercial miniature production (creating master copies, moulds etc.). Lionfish Games is a small company that is run by a single person, and while it allows the pursuit of creative endeavours, Kickstarter and the backers of this project are essential to the commercial viability of this project. Because of this, I am always so thankful for people's support and input, and continually try to create the best experience/outcome for everyone involved!

The Order of the Indigo Cross

The Order of the Indigo Cross is a concept about creating a range of female characters which were inspired equally by fantasy and medieval themes. I wanted the miniatures to be interesting and beautiful, but not in the cliche, overt manner often depicted by miniatures. As such, I've done my best to create the range of pieces that offer extensive variety, yet also share a likeness and similarity that ties them together.

Stretch Goals

While I would love to release the entire range of the Order of the Indigo Cross simultaneously, I wanted to set a realistic funding goal, with further miniatures being unlocked depending on the overall success of the campaign. Each unlocked stretch goal will be available as a seperate add-on for purchase.

Protector of Peace

Shipping will be collected after the campaign ends via the pledge manager, and will be calculated using the prices listed below.

About Lionfish Games and this project

Lionfish Games is an independent games company based in from Western Australia, with all design, sculpting and prototyping elements completed on location. Character creation is something that I have always enjoyed, and over the previous months, I have spent much time modelling and refining the figures for the Order of the Indigo Cross. I believe that it is now at the point where it is ready to share with a wider audience; with the ambition of getting the figures produced commercially - I hope that you enjoy these pieces as much as I've enjoyed designing and sculpting them. I would like to personally thank you for taking the time to look over my campaign!

Having spent my entire life on the coast of Western Australia, I understand the importance that the natural environment plays in ours lives. With the ever-increasing pressures that human impact has on the ocean, Lionfish Games has opted to donate a portion of our profits to the Coral Reef Alliance. 

Each year, 5% of profits will be donated to help fund research and conservation programs operated by Coral Reef Alliance.

Risks and challenges

While this isn't the first Kickstarter campaign by Lionfish Games, it is the first to incorporate miniatures, and with it, a new range of risks and challenges. Understanding the complexity associated with high-quality 3d production, I have already undertaken much of the groundwork before the commencement of the campaign to ensure things run smoothly, while also trying to mitigate any potential delays.

Even after having successfully fulfilled a campaign, I understand that unforeseen circumstances/problems may arise in the coming months. If for any reason, delays are encountered, I will maintain complete transparency with all backers... striving for the best quality product within the shortest possible time-frame.
