About this project
The Four Horsies of the 'Pocalypse is a campaign seeking to fund the production of a series of collectible figures based on a brand new universe of characters and concepts from Bigshot Toyworks!
MEET THE HORSIES:
It’s the end of the world as we know it…or is it?
Meet Calamity (Pestilence), Raven (Famine), Clash (War) and Ghost (Death). They’re the Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse (or at least they would be if they could only get their act together)! This next-generation of doombringers are on a mission to destroy the Earth, but to do so, they'll have to beat the likes of Queen Chroma and her rainbow sprite army! Too bad they can’t crack teamwork to save their lives.
Led by Maddie (an older sister type with an affinity for destruction, funded in our last Kickstarter), these would-be Champions of Chaos are desperate to show their parents they've got what it takes to inherit the legacy. Cake and ice cream for eternity? Not if these freaky fillies have anything to say about it!

MEET CLASH (war)

FOUR HORSIES DEVELOPMENT
Klim Kozinevich of Bigshot Toyworks came up with the idea of Maddie, which led him to expand the world and create the other Four Horsies characters. One of the ways that Klim vets new ideas is by making 3D renders on the computer. Although he draws and sketches frequently in his sketchbooks, some of his concepts (like Maddie) start out as "3D sketches" on his computer.
We have big dreams of growing the 'Four Horsies brand (and other, as-of-yet unannounced projects) into all sorts of new areas, including convention booths, exclusives, apparel, serialized web episodes & more. The hope is that this campaign helps us generate interest and we keep getting to do what it is that we love: creating!

Risks and challenges
Designing and producing collectibles is what Bigshot Toyworks specializes in, so we do not anticipate any issues with the beginning stages of this process. By the time you read this, the figures will have already been designed and tweaked hundreds of times to ready them for production.
With projects like this, the main challenge is adhering to a pre-determined timeline. There can be many delays when products are manufactured, for a variety of reasons. Our goal with this Kickstarter is to establish a production and reward fulfillment timeline that is reasonable, and we will do our very best to stick to it. If there are any delays that would push the delivery of these figures beyond that timeline, we will notify backers immediately.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
