About

MidKnight Heroes Season 0

Here at MidKnight Heroes We take fantasy, and give it a twist!

What is MidKnight Heroes?

MidKnight Heroes is a new miniature and gaming company that combines Sci-Fi warriors with fantasy races. Our Mission: To create long lasting miniatures and games that appeal to a broad range of players and collectors that combines many elements of the hobby into one. These miniatures are collectibles that can be used in tabletop gaming and will be highlighted in our up and coming tabletop skirmish game that will be released at a later date. We hope to fund and produce our core lineup of starting miniatures with this Kickstarter.  Following this Kickstarter, the miniatures will be featured in our online store (www.midknightheroes.com). 

If this campaign is successful, our next project is to develop and release the game that will allow you to use these miniatures in small scale skirmishes that combines all forms of gaming into one. It has a very cool and has a unique twist to it.

Our Core Set is the basic set you can chose a hero from when you make the ALPHA Pledge, or you can get all three with the The Omega Heroes Pledge. Our season 0 Core set consists of three characters Elvia and B.E.E.M., Leonide, and Oda. Once you make the ALPHA Pledge, or The Omega Heroes Pledge, it will allow you to add stretch goals as they are unlocked to your pledge. If you want all stretch goals instead of picking and choosing you can select The Omega War Alliance and or UNITY or any of our Crazy Level Pledges and get all stretch goals by default. 

Core Set Characters:

Core Set Miniature #1: Elvia and B.E.E.M. (Artist:Juan Caruso, Sculptor: Robby Crawforth)

Artist: Juan Caruso
Artist: Juan Caruso

Elvia!

Miniature Number 1 in our Core Set is Elvia and her rifle B.E.E.M.

Elvia is an Elvarian heavily trained with the tactical assault rifle and hand to hand combat. Having been raised in a noble family she had always found herself to be the black sheep of the family, until she brought honor to her family by joining the Elvarian Royal Guard (ERG). She joined the special forces of the ERG and was assigned a special P.A.L. by the name of B.E.E.M.. Life was good for her, until the Omega War. It was in the war that B.E.E.M. was damaged; her body ripped apart in front of Elvia’s very eyes and her core memory unit damaged. Elvia acted fast and integrated what she could of B.E.E.M. into her custom assault rifle in hopes to save her friend. Unknowingly, she did much more than that. B.E.E.M. had helped design her rifle and the P.A.L. was able to integrate herself into the weapon as if it were a new body. Since the weapon was integrated with Elvia, B.E.E.M. was now integrated into Elvia as well, creating a permanent tattoo on her face..

Elvia will be sculpted by our main Sculptor Robby Crawforth! (see video above) She will be 30mm and cast in white metal. (Pic is not final pose)

 

Core Set Miniature #2: Leonide Fai Barbarian Chieftain of the Kaioe clan (Artist:Juan Caruso, Sculptor: Fancagne Didier)

Artist: Juan Caruso  Colors: Natakue
Artist: Juan Caruso Colors: Natakue

Leonide is the Chieftain of the Kaioe (Kai - o - e) clan, the largest clan of the Fai. Leonide did not like the way his father had run the clan and felt that his actions were not worthy of him being the Chieftain. His father showed a disdain for the creature that was sent from the sky. This creature was not of the planet so it could not be trusted. He urged his father to accept the creature with open arms, but he would not. Leonide saw only one option, challenge his father for the right of Chieftain. The battle was fierce as his father was the strongest warrior of all of the clans. Although he did not go easy on his son, in the end Leonide was the victor. Leonide pledged his clan to P.A.L. and urged the others to do the same.

Leonide will be sculpted by the amazing Sculptor Fancagne Didier! (see video above) He will be 40mm and cast in white metal. (Pic is not final pose)

Core Set Miniature #3: Oda the Rokheim Battle Master. (Artist:Juan Caruso, Sculptor: Robby Crawforth)

Artist: Juan Caruso  Colors: Natakue
Artist: Juan Caruso Colors: Natakue

The Rokheim are a proud and strong race. They value three things above all else; their God, fighting, and ale! Oda is no different from any other Rokheim on that front, but he is a Battle Master; his entire life devoted to the art of battle. Battle Masters are able to fight as long as needed to protect the church and people. Oda is a legend among the Battle Master’s and has spent many seasons protecting the church with his wife Hanna by his side

Oda will be sculpted by our main Sculptor Robby Crawforth! (see video above) He will be 28mm and cast in white metal. (Pic is not final pose)

Starting at $10,500 and every $2,500 after that new characters will be unlocked that can be added on to the basic level pledge. If you choose the The Omega War Alliance or The Omega War Unity or any of our Crazy levels they will be included by default.

Risks and challenges

Our core development team has artists, writers, and game designers. This is the team that first started working on the project and has done most of the work to bring it to you. We realized early in the project that our biggest initial challenge in bringing our vision to life was finding a great sculptor. We have done our research and found two excellent sculptors to work on this project. For the humanoid and robotic miniatures, we will be using Robby Crawforth. For our beastly miniatures, Fancagne Didier will be doing our sculpts. For more info on the sculptors, check out our website at www.midknightheroes.com.

A big part of this KickStarter is to gain the funding to pay for the sculpts and production of the miniatures. We have thoroughly researched the costs associated with sculpting, molding, production, and shipping of the first set of miniatures. We have also built in some extras for future stretch goals after we hit the initial funding. We are confident that we have considered all of the costs that will be associated with this project.

Our biggest challenge will be the time needed to sculpt and produce the miniatures. As the sculptors have to do all of their work after the project funds, the time frame following the KickStarter will be longer than we initially wanted. Bear with us, these miniatures will be awesome and well worth the wait. Plus, we will keep you informed with regular updates on the progress of the project. However, we're not going to be idle while the sculptors are doing their work, the rest of us will be busy developing our first full season of miniatures and finishing game designed around our miniatures.
