About

Welcome back everyone! 

If this is your first time here, you've arrived at the second big expansion to the HC SVNT DRACONES tabletop role playing game miniature line. 

The HSD mini store

This line of minis contains modular parts for anthro figures in the 28-30mm scale range, suitable for just about any tabletop game but made for HC SVNT DRACONES, which has recently entered its second edition. You can check that out here if you're curious!

The HC SVNT DRACONES 2.0 Rulebook

The existing miniature line began with biped bodies, anthro heads and tails, and a variety of arms. Our first expansion introduced a huge number of new body types including tauric forms, which turned this into one of the best lines to check if you have a tauric character. 

Now we're on to expansion number 2, where we bring in characters and critters that are iconic to the HSD franchise instead of general sci-fi themed models. While this is more niche than the previous HSD mini kickstarters, it's also going to produce some of the cooler, larger, more dynamic and exciting sculpts for the tabletop. Awesome monsters like Owls and Palemen, unique playable character types like Exonymphs and Cogsunes, Fan favorite creations like Active armor, and a big list of stretch goals including characters from the novels, books, and extended lore. If you're an HSD player, a mini collector, a fan of unique sculpts, or just a supporter of small business, this is an awesome one to get in on.



You can view the existing heads and tails here! https://www.shapeways.com/shops/weapons-grade-funk-miniatures

All four expansions are part of this kickstarter, for a total of at least 24 new store models. But there's more to be had here! The stretch goals for this expansion include Character duos and expansion reinforcements all the way up to $18,000, adding figures for many of the featured characters in the HSD books as well as augmenting the existing miniature line.

Risks and challenges

For the past two miniature kickstarters I have been working with Imagine 3D miniatures, who handled the sculpting and the interface that allowed for custom in-browser model configurations. Alas, Imagine 3D closed up as a company, which shut down the custom mini designer. That was definately an unexpected setback.
This time however we're dealing directly with shapeways for the miniature line, which is where the originals were printed through anyway after they exported from Imagine's browser program. Shapeways is a large and established firm with thousands of clients, so while we may have lost the ability to build the custom minis in browser, it is unlikely we'll lose the ability to print them at this point. Moreover, now that there is no longer a third party involved, the minis from this kickstarter will be cheaper to buy than they otherwise would have been.

    Personal Print Starter

    This backer value gets you the four .stl files that will produce the special character miniatures listed in the four core sections of this kickstarter. That's Nyss the exonymph, Hush, the cryptic named whisper from HSD: Sound and Silence, Cassius Cael, a hardened veteran and key component of the joint attack against the Ruby Spire, and a dynamic sculpt of a vector boarding active armor with spots for head and tail replacement.
    There are no physical rewards in this tier, but the .stl files can be used in conjunction with your own 3d printer or through a print service like Shapeways to create as many prints of the figures as you want

    Core Specials

    In addition to receiving the .stl files described in the $30 reward, this also gets you one of the four of your choice, and one of the named character stretch goals, printed and shipped to you. That's three printed figures (the named character stretch goals are all pairs). This is a solid choice for people who want their money's worth in physical products without diving all-in.

    Gotta catch em

    No printer? No problem. I'll give you the .stl's of the special characters anyway, but this level also gets you:
    All 4 special characters printed.
    One of the stretch goal character pairs of your choice printed.
    That's 4-6 characters with ever-increasing variety as our stretch goals increase.

    Gotta catch em ALL

    Oh, I see. ALL the things. Fair enough.
    This reward gets you:
    All four printed special characters.
    Every stretch goal character printed.
    The further we get, the more -you- get! This is a great tier to upgrade to if the kickstarter starts hitting those stretch goals (but I'm not going to stop you from starting here if you really want)
    This level has a potential return of 20 figures if we hit the top of the listed goals.

    Contract killers

    This is a variant from the norm, for folks that need figures for their games but not necessarily the figures being made for this expansion. This reward will get you:
    2 printed Light armored generic Vector mercenaries with helmets
    4 printed Medium armored generic Vector mercenaries with helmets
    3 printed Heavy armored generic Vector mercenaries with helmets
    1 printed Active armor mercenary
    That's ten great models you can use in various configurations in nearly any contract you decide to run. Just be aware: this is a standalone reward, you won't be receiving the other models with this one.

    Listen, I have a mighty need

    I feel you.
    This level combines the Gotta Catch em ALL and the Contract killers reward tiers. You get both. You can like, use the fancy characters to fight the mercenaries on the table. Or mix and match.
    I'd be embarrassed about telling you how to play with your little toys but let's face it, we know why we're here.

    Custom diarama

    This gets you all the rewards of the Gotta Catch em ALL OR the contract killers tier, your choice. But in addition you also receive one figure of your choice from any of the ones produced in this entire expansion. The Whispers, the Owl, one of the named characters, your choice, arranged in a two-character pose with a custom built miniature of your character. They can be arranged together or separately so you can use your character standalone on the table or have them as a diorama together. In addition, since this particular sculpt wont be going into the miniature store, I can print it in a larger scale if you'd like to use it as a desk model. If you're a collector this is a very cool way to get something very custom done.
