What's Super Chibi Round 4? It's the next step in the Super Chibi miniatures line. What is Super Chibi? It's a shared universe that spans four interesting worlds, created by MidKnight Heroes. Each world has its own style and flare but is 100% pure Chibi. What's in the Super Chibi worlds? Everything from mecha and cyborgs, to fantasy and monsters!
Super Chibi miniatures are high quality 30mm multi-part resin miniatures that can be used for board games, role-playing games or even great additions to your miniatures collection! The sky's the limit!
This Kickstarter introduces three more characters from the worlds in the Super Chibi universe. These characters are from the world of Super Chibi Sector 7, Super Chibi Tactics, and Super Chibi Clash. In this Kickstarter, we are asking for help casting these three new characters; Nona, Tenago and Sakura. All the sculpts are done, we just need help getting them cast. This Kickstarter will cover the expense of taking them from their mastered sculpts by Heriberto Valle Martinez to the mold and casting process also help in providing us with funds to help produce additional figures, with an aim to populate the worlds of Super Chibi.
As in our previous Kickstarters, we will be including a book, Super Chibi Round 4: Origins. This time, it will tell the stories of our three main characters in their respective worlds.The book will include three short stories that will explain the world of Super Chibi Sector 7 and Super Chibi Tactics and Super Chibi Clash. Just like all of our books, it will be published by MONOLITH and after the Kickstarter, will be made available on their website.

We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter, based on the actual costs and weight. This will be collected after the campaign ends via our pledge manager.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT INCLUDE ADDITIONAL FUNDS TO COVER YOUR POSTAGE PAYMENT IN YOUR PLEDGE AT THIS TIME.
Any funds collected through the KS system are reduced by 10% when Kickstarter collects their fees; this means that any funds collected to cover postage are 10% less than what is actually needed to cover postage, if the postage rates do not increase at the time of billing and shipping (postal rates have increased on us during our projects at least once prior to fulfillment; in one case, the rates increased twice).
After the campaign ends, backers will be able to select their rewards, via the pledge manager. Shipping costs will be calculated at that time. You will also be able to select additional reward options at that time if you wish.
Postage will be calculated by region when backers make their choices via our pledge management system. All postage fees must be paid before shipment can be completed. Rewards will be posted from the United States to all backer's addresses.

Risks and challenges
Our core development team is made up of artists, writers, and game designers. This is the same team that first started working on the project over three years ago and has done most of the work to bring it to you. We realized early in the project that our greatest challenge in bringing our vision to life, would be finding a great sculptor. We have done our research and found the best sculptor for the job. His name, Heriberto Valle Martinez.
A big part of this Kickstarter is to gain the funding to pay for the overall production of the miniatures. We have thoroughly researched the costs associated with sculpting, molding, production, and shipping of the core set of miniatures. 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 most of the stretch goal work after the project funds, the time-frame following the Kickstarter may be longer than we initially wanted. Please bear with us, these miniatures will be awesome and well worth the wait. We will keep you informed with regular updates on the progress of the project. We're not going to be idle while the sculptors are doing their work, however. The rest of the team will be busy developing the future line of miniatures and finishing games for future releases.
We reserve the right to modify pieces shown to meet production requirements.
