Welcome to Splintered Light Miniatures' 15mm fantasy Egyptian Sons of Anubis Kickstarter. A few years ago we released the Sons of Horus, our first fantasy Egyptian themed army, as well as some fantasy Egyptian undead. Last year we ran a successful Kickstarter, adding a new army to the fantasy Egyptian line--the Scarab-men.
The next army in our line of fantasy Egyptian figures is the Sons of Anubis, sculpted by Faron Betchley. He has also sculpted some mercenary figures. Our main goal with this Kickstarter is to get the funds we need for the production molds and initial castings. Our hope is that as we are getting the funding for production molds, we can also keep Faron sculpting new armies and mercenary units for future Kickstarter campaigns. We need your help to get this done so please pledge today!
Our plan is to have 8 packs of Sons of Anubis available as well as 7 new mercenary packs. We also have 5 packs we were able to produce from our last Kickstarter that we will be offering here.
ANUB01 Sons of Anubis Command: 4 leader poses, 4 standard poses, and 4 musician poses
ANUB02 Sons of Anubis Spears: 6 of each pose
ANUB03 Sons of Anubis Khopesh: 6 of each pose
ANUB04 Sons of Anubis Archers: 6 of each pose
ANUB05 Sons of Anubis Guard: 6 of each pose
ANUB06 Sons of Anubis Chariots: 2 complete chariots
ANUB07 Sons of Anubis Jackal Beasts: 3 of each pose
ANUB08 Sons of Anubis War Jackals and Handler: 3 of each jackal pose and 3 handlers
For this Kickstarter, I will be offering these at three pledge levels. First, backers can choose to get one of each pose in packs 1-5, 1 of each jackal pose, and 1 random beast pose for $15 as a war band for skirmish games. This option will not qualify for all stretch goals.
Second, backer can choose to get an army with enough units to make a Mighty Armies army or HOTT army. The army will include: 1 Command Stand (leader/caster, musician, and standard), 1 Guard Stand (3 figures), 2 Spear Stands (6 figures), 2 Khopesh Stands (6 figures), 2 Archer Stands (6 figures), 1 Beast Stand (2 figures), 1 Jackal Stand (3 figures), and 1 Chariot Stand (1 complete chariot). This option will qualify for all stretch goals.
Third, backers can choose to get one of each of the Sons of Anubis packs. This will include ANUB01-18 and will give the backers 61 infantry, 2 chariots, 6 beasts, and 10 jackals. This option will qualify for all stretch goals.
In addition to the Sons of Anubis packs, we will also be offering mercenary packs. These will be sold separately as add-ons but there is a 4th pledge level that will include all of the Sons of Anubis packs plus all of the following mercenary packs (Sons of Ptah Warriors, Sons of Ptah Archers, Sons of Basti Warriors, Daughters of Basti Archers, Sons of Sebek Warriors, Sons of Thoth Guard, Sons of the Serpent Spear, Sons of the Serpent Khopesh, Sons of the Scorpion Command, Sons of the Scorpion Spears, and Sons of the Scorpion Warriors)

Shipping will be handled after the campaign is finished and product is ready to ship. Unfortunately, since Splintered Light Miniatures is a small company, we do not have distribution channels around the world so we have to ship from our home base. Most every domestic USA order will fit into a small flat rate priority mail box, which at this point in time is roughly $7. International orders will fall into two categories (Canada will come in slightly less than this)-- orders 8 ounces or less will cost roughly $14 to ship and orders over 8 ounces will cost roughly $23 to ship. Both of these prices are based on international first class shipping rates. Backers will be sent a Paypal invoice for the cost of shipping once the product is ready to ship, and the cost will be the actual cost of shipping.
Please do not include the shipping in your pledge total.
Risks and challenges
As far as risks go, I am very confident this will be done in the time given. I have been in business for 13 years and working with the moldmaker/caster I use for most of that time. They do great work and since the sculpts and master mold is made, it will just be a matter of getting production molds finished and product shipped. The only real delay might be if the moldmaker is overly busy, but two months should be no problem for getting it done.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
