This campaign's minimum funding goal of $4000 will be used to produce 4 heroes in white metal (pewter) for 28mm -non heroic- scale wargaming. Accompanying the main goal, there are 8 more potential heroes to be produced as stretch goals plus an extra 13th exclusive miniature that will be free for all of the pledges levels.

The miniatures will come with 25mm round AND square metal bases specially designed for these miniatures, or to use with other characters. They have a small area in which you can write the name of your character and exalt them to that hero level! Update #1: Backers can now choose from a 25mm round base OR a 30mm round base, along with the 25mm square base as usual.

The entire line consists of 22 heroes who will be produced over time. All of them are part of Menhir Game's fantasy world background in which further miniatures and rules for wargaming as well as detailed settings for RPG games, will be released.

Menhir Games is based in Argentina and specializes in sculpting unique miniatures in various scales and for various genres. In this occasion; 28mm Fantasy Champions from Around the Ancient World aims to offer champions/characters from different fantasy races based on cultures & nations of the historical ancient world. Offering new, original concepts and backgrounds.

In partnership with artist and board game designer, Nick Ryan, owner of this KS account, and producer of the graphics for this campaign. Future tabletop projects are in the works from these two. Expect big things From Menhir Games & Nick Ryan.

Risks and challenges

The only real risk or challenge here, is time; the first set of 4 miniatures and first 2 stretch goal renders are ready, however the remaining stretch goal figures will be sculpted during the campaign as those levels are met. however it is not under my control the time that the printing process takes or the molding process, but of course I can say that all the printing + moulding + casting copies will take roughly 4 months, if possible, earlier.
