Hi, my names Martyn Wood, I've been a creative person for as long as I can remember, and over the past few years I have discovered and been practising detailed miniature sculpting which I find really suits my talents.
Through this outlet I have had many ideas and projects, however I have struggled to reach people who may find these projects interesting or useful to them- this is my first Kickstarter campaign and I am hoping that it will provide me with a platform for people to see what I have been working on. If I reach my goal, I am hoping that some of the funds can go towards developing a good quality website on which I can collect my ideas, and also some of the funds will go towards marketing some of my finished pieces so I can move towards being able to sell more of what I love making.
This campaign is based around a project I have been very passionate about and have been working on for the past few months- a chess set based on dinosaurs- creatures which I find fascinating with them being so large, ferocious, varied and different from anything you can find walking the earth today. I can really appreciate the level of intellectual skill that goes into chess playing, and I found the idea of crafting pieces for this game very appealing,
Stretch Goals- I am so happy to have been successfully funded. I have set a stretch goal of £3650, if I reach this total I will add an alternate King piece (currently being sculpted) to every set which has been purchased in the campaign.
**Glass Chess Board Now Available as an optional alternative**
Below I will introduce the chess set and pieces in a little more detail.
Risks and challenges
Regarding the production of this set; I have an in house white metal manufacturing capability which I have much experience of working with over the past 5 years, and I have sourced a reliable and high quality bulk manufacturer for the board itself. I have put November in as the delivery date for the sets which is very achievable however I see the biggest risk for the campaign as being some of the deliveries slipping into December- my main goal is to have these all delivered in good time ahead of Christmas 2019. I have researched into shipping to various countries and made the project available to back world wide- with the delivery charges varying accordingly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
