Special Thanks!

All designs are by the legendary and prolific 3D designer, Miguel Zavala.  Miguel has a Patreon account, mz4250, where he interacts with fans and even will produce designs per request. I encourage all of you to support him. His work will no doubt live on for many, many years to come, and I am happy to be able to spread his designs through this set of miniatures.  ( https://www.patreon.com/mz4250/posts)

Presenting......The Heroic Townsfolk Set. 

  •  Rich characters to support deep, memorable story-telling.  
3D Render of the Spy miniature

    Driven by my passion for all things fantasy, I set out to create a range of fantasy miniatures that are under-represented and fill a need in the community. The tabletop RPG gaming community has so far been amazing to me, and I want anything I create to be something they really get excited about.

I created WildSpire Miniatures as the vehicle for this dream of bringing truly unique miniatures to the community.  No miniature I produce will be just filler on a map or decoration, but will exist to spark curiosity, intrigue and richer story-telling. Many of these Heroic Townsfolk characters are unique characters and can be played as both player-characters or non-player characters.  

The Core Set : Set of 18 Heroic Townsfolk

The term "Heroic"  sets these apart from generic townsfolk.  Heroic Townsfolk are worthy of building deep storylines around and many can be played as player-characters or non-player characters (NPC). They can become the heroes (or villains), too. Either way, they are able to help carry stories. Diverse races, genders and occupations that are not the normal "filler" peasants too often seen around town.

All pledges that include the "Core Set" contain the following 18 Heroic Townsfolk plastic miniatures.  

These 4 bonus minis will be added to each Core Set for which you have pledged. These are not STLs, these are actual physical minis. Enjoy!

Stay Tuned! Stretch Goals are still being worked out  on a rolling basis based on backer input and feasibility.  

The Core Set of 18 high-quality plastic miniatures are made per 28mm scale are suitable for Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder and other tabletop fantasy role-playing games.   

Prototypes. The orange color is due to the specific prototyping material, and the final miniatures' color has yet to be decided.

  These Miniatures all come unpainted and are made from high-quality PVC plastic. They will be injection-molded to ensure the highest possible detail.

 Why do you call them "Heroic"?

 I use the term "Heroic" to illustrate the fact that, compared to most other townsfolk miniatures, these Heroic Townsfolk are brimming with personality and hint that a tale or two lies just beneath the surface. With enough depth to take the role as heroes (or villains), they help build memorable stories. In diverse races, genders and occupations, the Heroic Townsfolk are the antithesis of the generic, anonymous peasants too often seen around town.

  These Heroic Townsfolk help to color and flesh out the truly engaging characters we all strive to create. Less bland human peasants, and more excitingly unique characters from varied backgrounds.

   Story telling in RPGs strives to be memorable and moving. We need unique characters that can support these stories. So, I am excited to present this set of diverse races and genders, highly-unique, and AFFORDABLE minis. I hope you are excited about them as I am.

 3D-Printed Prototypes 

In preparation for mass production and to ensure feasibility of the designs, I have 3D printed all 18 designs. The detail is superb compared to the original 3D designs.

 How are the minis so affordable? 

We have NOT in any way sacrificed quality to make these more affordable. You can expect the same or better quality than you are accustomed to in miniatures.  The more people that play with my miniatures and get excited about them, the more I feel like I've accomplished my goal. We want to provide these to broadest community possible and make a name for ourselves. Sure, a lower price means that it will take longer to reach profitability, but I am confident in my product in the long-run.

How will I spend your pledge? How is our Estimated Delivery Date so soon? 

We will start production as soon we are 100% funded, and we will not wait until the campaign end date to start manufacturing. So the sooner we reach our funding goal, the sooner we start production.  Being 100% funded is a way for me to verify that there is demand for these minis, and I am determined to create them. Initially, before the campaign end date arrives, I will invest my own money to pay for the miniature molds, so they production will not have to wait until all pledges are collected. And then use your contributions to this campaign to repay a part of this investment.  

  •  Affordable. Significantly cheaper than mainstream miniatures, yet the same or better quality! 
  •  Heroic. Unique, interesting characters worth building stories around. Not bland anonymous humans!
  •  Diverse. Various races, genders and occupations.

Risks and challenges

What are the risks and challenges that come with completing your project, and how are you qualified to overcome them?

Production and Fulfillment

Non-completion

Prior to this project, I have lived and worked in China for over 12 years. During part of this time I began designing, sourcing and fulfilling products to the USA market. Therefore, I am experienced in dealing with the manufacturers, managing production quality, deadlines, and the overall logistics of packing and shipping physical products. I also plan to visit China and the factory in order to be hands-on during the crucial steps of quality inspection and preparation before shipping.

Of course, there are still forces that could cause he non-completion of this Kickstarter, including: loss of cargo during shipping, due to natural or man-made disasters. However, the products will be fully insured against loss and damage.

Delays

Delays in production or shipping could be caused by the aforementioned natural and man-made disasters, or by US Customs and Border Protection and Consumer Product Safety Commission inspections and delays. We will of course make every precaution necessary to avoid any delay and will always update our backers as soon as possible.

We reserve the right to modify pieces shown to meet production requirements.
