About this project

 We are a resin casting company that has been producing bases since our founding in 2007. We want to see your army on our bases. Our philosophy is simple; to give you a solid place to start and watch you grow.

 We want to get Transparent with our business…well, at least our bases. We want to raise enough funds to launch our new base lines! Our fundraising will go to dedicated equipment and molds for our new Transparent Line of Bases.

 To start, we are working on our endlessly popular Cracked line in transparent. With a silver or red underpainting, they look like Ice or Fire/Lava. It's pretty cool. The few painted ones we show in the video are shown below.

We will be producing these bases in the following sizes:

•25mm - 10 bases per Bag - Small
•30mm - 10 bases per Bag - Small
•40mm - 5 bases per Bag - Medium
•50mm - 3 bases per Bag - Large
•60mm - 3 bases per Bag - Large

When the Kickstarter closes, you will have the opportunity to let us know what sizes of bases you need in the survey.  To avoid confusion and complications, please make sure you know what sizes of bases are legal for the game you play before filling out the survey.

 Your rewards for "discovering" the bases in their trunks will be the ability to choose between sculpts. We have 4 upcoming lines that we're working on, and 2 are designed to be fully transparent.

The stretch goal tiers are as follows:

•$1450 Unlocks the Victorian sculpt; bases featuring a Victorian cobblestone road and drainage pipes.

•$1700 Unlocks some Bonus Bags.  Donation tiers $30 and up will receive an extra bag of product.

•$1950 Unlocks the Crystalline sculpt; transparent bases sculpted with clusters of crystals.

•$2200 Unlocks the Clockwork sculpt; bases featuring lots of cogs and gears.

•$2450 Unlocks MORE Bonus Bags.  How many will be determined by how much the campaign closes at.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest delays will come in equipment setup, mold creation, and the casting time inherent in using resin. Cool or cold weather can extend cure times and cause delays in both the molds and the resin casting.

We have budgeted for a couple extra hands to help with mold creation and casting. As far as cold weather delays, we have taken that delay into consideration when quoting a delivery estimate. Simple things, like a few well placed heaters in the shop, will also help combat cold weather delays.

The biggest delay beyond our control will be shipping. We have set a January shipping date to avoid the Holiday shipping rush and minimize losses and delays. Just in time to use all that Holiday Gift Money on a new army for your bases.
