Who are the Curious Cats of Crumptown? 

The Cats of Crumptown are or were domestic cats but through prolonged contact with the arcane magicks of the Darkewood they have become sentient and achieved human levels of intellect. These curious kitties live in the port of Crumptown near to the Darkewood and the Realm of the Nightfolk. We want to bring them to you as Heroic 28mm Scale white metal miniatures for you to use in RPG's and Tabletop Wargaming.

They have been specifically designed to fulfill the core classes in 5E and come equipped with a small digital adventure designed to introduce you to a world in which you can bring these characters to life in your own way. 

There are 12 uniquely characterful miniatures plus an exclusive figure just for Kickstarter backers.  You will have the opportunity to pick up these exquisite miniatures and some addons with a fantastic discount on the usual retail price and perhaps bag yourself some free stretch goals on top! Your support will enable us to put this project into production at a larger scale than our usual release methods which will enable us to make more miniatures than we normally could.

There are four straightforward pledges to choose from an you can upgrade your pledge at any time:

  •  Alley Cat - Pick out what you want and then pledge the amount, you will be able to finalise your choices in the pledge manager.
  •  House Cat - A full set of 12 Cats of Crumptown and Luna the Dragon Kickstarter Exclusive Miniature in deluxe box set,
  •  Fat Cat - A full set of 12 Cats of Crumptown and Luna the Dragon Kickstarter Exclusive Miniature in deluxe box set, along with The KittenGuard add-on. A massive 25 miniatures. 
  •  AristoCat - A full set of 12 Cats of Crumptown and Luna the Dragon Kickstarter Exclusive Miniature in deluxe box set, The KittenGuard Add-on, The Lampligter Add-on, The Crows Add-on, The Gnomes Add-on and the Cawwlock Miniature. A whopping 37 Miniatures 

This will be the biggest project we have launched to date and since we are launching this on Kickstarter so we really wanted to make it something special, to that end we have prepared a number of stretch goals which if hit will be included for free in any of the qualifying pledges. The first of these Goals are listed below and we have a load more planned that will be added as we progress. All Stretch Goal Miniatures and Bases are supplied unpainted.

We have had the pleasure of working with some wonderfully talented individuals in bringing you this project. 

Sculptors  - Martin Buck and Ristul. Martin is our resident Cat shaper and sculptor extraordinaire we have worked with him for a long time and he is responsible for some of our best selling Miniatures. This is the first time we have worked with Ristul and we were not dissapointed with the magical item sculpts, the work was fantastic, so much so I had to talk David down from immediately ordering twenty treasure chests!

Artists - No project is complete without a large amount of art resources, so we couldn't have done it without Philip Adamson or Penflower Ink. Philip worked on the concept art for the Cats of Crumptown, Penflower Ink drew up the magical items and the card design.

Painters - The miniatures were painted to an impeccable standard by John Morris and Andrew Taylor.

Writers - We have Josh Heath of High Level Games to thank for helping us bring the city of Crumptown to life in 5E. He was a perfect fit for the job having previously worked on whole worlds of anthropomorphic creatures in 5E D&D.

And then theres us, David and Simon - Northumbrian Tin Soldier
