Far cry from small boys in the park, jumpers for goalposts. Rush goalie. Two at the back, three in the middle, four up front, one's gone home for his tea. Beans on toast? Possibly, don't quote me on that. Marvellous.

- Ron Manager (The Fast Show)

 

Do you love a game of 'Mob Football'?

Do you love the idea of having a team specific Goal Post but don't have the time or skill to make one?

Well today is your lucky day!!!

  

Each model is multi-part, and has been designed to sit inside a standard 50mm lipped base (which is included in your pledge). That means that some assembly is required and therefore adult supervision is required for younger gamers. Models will be supplied unpainted.

In addition, each has been designed to look functional, so there will always be either a hard target to hit or a hole through which your opponent is trying to kick the ball.

The two main Pledge Levels come with either 1 (for pundit level) or 5 (for pitch side seller level, retailer only) Goal Post models.

If you want more, then simply increase your Pledge by £9 (pundit level) for each additional model or £35 (pitch side seller level) for each set of 5 additional models.

After the Kickstarter finishes we will issue a Pledge Manager where you can specify how many of each Goal Post model you want, up to the value of your pledge.  Only those shown in the Available Now section (above) can be selected.

Simples!

 

We wanted our first Kickstarter campaign to be easy to follow and straightforward for both Backers and us.  We could have done many different things, such as offering assembly options, undercoated or pre-painted options, painting tutorial videos, etc.  In the end we decided that all of these took time, cost and focus away from delivering the core product that you want.  So instead we focused on delivering a quality model at a great price.  We hope you'll agree.

We decided to start with Masons' and Brewers' Goal Post models to cover both existing players and to compliment and support the current mob football scene.  They would also make great Obstacles and Barriers for your games!

 

OK, before we go any further we need to clarify that "Stretch Goals" are additional levels of funding and not some new concept in elasticated model making!

This Kickstarter will offer Stretch Goals for all released teams, so if you want a Morticians' or Butchers' Goal Post model then please pledge early and help spread the word.  The Stretch Goals will be based on the additional cost of sculpting, moulding and producing another Goal Post model (£750 each), and we have kept these to the absolute minimum cost.

Once we reach our funding target, our first Stretch Goal will be to unlock the Morticians' Goal Post model.  To give you an idea of what the other models will look like, here are the basic concept frameworks.  Remember, these are all frameworks and we will work our magic to transform them to be fully detailed as we have with the Masons.

[UPDATE 19/11]: Since launch we have listened to feedback from backers and non-backers alike and we are now arranging for concept sketches to be created for each stretch goal to give you all a better idea of what each will look like.  In the meantime we've also added some notes below each which may also help.

 

Morticians Goal Post Concept
Morticians Goal Post Concept

[Update 19/11]: Morticians love their work, and this Goal Post centres around the collection of a recently punished individual in preparation for their final journey.  Embellishments will include an arm draped out of the side of the coffin as the Morticians have taken their lunch break early for an impromptu practice!

Butchers Goal Post Concept
Butchers Goal Post Concept

[Update 19/11]: Any Butchers Goal Post would be sorely lacking if it didn't have the staples of hanging carcasses, a chopping block and a selection of hooks, cleavers and saws.  Just as we have with the Masons, these will be separate, highly detailed pieces that you can place where you want.

Alchemists Goal Post Concept
Alchemists Goal Post Concept

[Update 19/11]: Alchemy meets Surrealism in what has got to be one of the most individualistic and striking Goal Posts in the collection.  Adorned with all of the traditional elemental symbols (Earth, Wind, Fire & Water), this is the one that has set tongues wagging.

Fishermans Goal Post Concept
Fishermans Goal Post Concept

[Update 19/11]: Perhaps the hardest concept to interpret, but we will run through it for you now.  The goal itself is a large fishing net.  Beneath it, in clockwise order from the rear right, are; a coil of rope, 2 x floats and a lobster pot.  The rest of the blank space will be for you to embellish, and to help you do this we'll be giving you some additional items.

The Union Goal Post Concept
The Union Goal Post Concept

[Update 19/11]: The Union are all about taking the coin, and to do that they need an endless supply of fresh rookies.  So it will come as no surprise that their Goal Post allows them to sign up anyone who is good enough at smashing the ball through the makeshift goal or defending it.

Engineers Goal Post Concept
Engineers Goal Post Concept

[Update 19/11]: Drawing many admirers, this intricate series of cogs spins the goal in perpetual motion.  Fortunately for opponents of the Engineers this is only a model so it's pretty static (though I'm sure if anyone misses a 4 dice effort then they will disagree!) 

Still to come we have Hunters, Farmers and 2 x generic Goal Posts which will be added as further stretch goals if we can reach this level.  We'd love to show you them now, but we're going to keep these under wraps for now.  Do you think you can help us uncover them?

 

We love retailers and, especially, FLGS (Friendly Local Games Stores). Once this Kickstarter has fully shipped to all backers we plan to offer the models to retail and direct through our webstore at an RRP of £14.99. We consider Retailers and FLGS to be just as important as individuals and so when we say "backer" this means you too.  As a thank you for your support you will be able to stock these models early and at a further discount to what we expect when released. Note that they will be supplied in individual packaging as "Retail Ready".

All that we ask in return is that you provide proof of business (generally a link to your website will be sufficient)

 

This is where YOU take a breather, not us. When do we plan on fulfilling?  Good question!  Let's try and answer it...

For the initial 2 Goal Posts the digital sculpts are complete and have been reviewed by the caster.  We are confident of being able to put these into production within 8 weeks of the end of the Kickstarter, and shipping out to backers within 10 weeks.  However that's if we hit our initial funding level and no more.  Part of the problem is not knowing whether we need 150 cast or 1,500 and so we can only provisionally schedule the work with the caster at this stage.

If we unlock Stretch Goals then there will be time it takes for our digital sculptor to convert the rough sketches into rendered models, and then move this into production as above.  This extra time will also depend on how many are unlocked (it being quicker to sculpt 1 Goal Post than 7).  If we work on an extra week per Goal Post unlocked then I think we have an estimate:

Number of Unlocked Goal Post models / Estimated Shipping Starts

2 / week commencing Monday 27th February 2017

3 / week commencing Monday 6th March 2017

4 / week commencing Monday 13th March 2017

and so on...

It always worth reminding people that these are estimates and that, when working with a small number of key people, holidays, illness and personal life can all impact on delivery timelines.  Oh yeah, and that small matter of Christmas!

 

 

 

All shipping will be made from our offices in the UK.  Shipping will be charged at the end of the Kickstarter and based on where you are in the world.  Packages will be clearly marked up and any customs duties charged must be borne by the backer.  We're sorry about this.  We are looking at how to ship out of distribution centres in US, Australia, etc but we haven't got this capability yet.

Shipping fees will be added via the Pledge Manager once the Kickstarter closes, so there is no need to add them to your Pledge itself.

For 1 to 4 Goal Posts

  • UK: £3
  • EU: £4
  • Rest of the World: £5

For 5 or more Goal Posts

  • UK: £4
  • EU: £5
  • Rest of the World: £6

  

So who are the team bringing you this Kickstarter?

We are four life-long friends who have collectively been gaming for over a century. We must be clear that Primogenesis has no commercial relationship with SteamForged Games Limited, however on an individual basis we have voluntarily provided hundreds of hours of feedback and playtesting for this famous 'mob football' game and we are huge fans of it, just like you!

Geoff P: Head Coach on this project. That doesn't mean he gets to pick the team, but it was Geoff's idea to create this as a Kickstarter.

Kevin H (aka "Mad Max"): Kit Man on this project. This campaign really started from the initial Goal Post that Kevin sculpted for his own Masons team.  

Mark M: Talent Scout on this project. Mark has been using his contacts (for another Kickstarter) to cost this one up and plan for production.

Dave H: Marketing Manager on this project. Whilst we are all responsible for spreading the word on this Kickstarter, Dave will be focusing the vast amount of his efforts on doing so.

 

Risks and challenges

We will address all risks below (and any issues that crop up) by keeping backers fully informed of progress on a weekly basis and highlighting what we are doing about them.

RISK #1: KEY PERSONNEL ARE UNAVAILABLE WHEN REQUIRED
- Unfortunately we are unable to mitigate this risk as we are working with specific individuals. If their availability changed completely for any reason then we do have alternative people we can switch the whole project to (but we'd rather not do this unless we have to)

RISK #2: THE DEMAND IS 100's OF TIMES MORE THAN EXPECTED
- Whilst that would be phenomenal, we don't think that this is a realistic risk. If it did happen then it may mean that we have a longer lead time to get everything produced.
