About

First of all, let me introduce myself. My name is Alessio Cisbani, and I'm an Italian miniature sculptor and painter. For the past several years I have worked as freelance sculptor for various miniature companies (Manorhouse Workshop, Greebo Games, MK 1881, Eastern Front Studios, Macrocosm miniatures, Knightmare Games, CP Models Miniatures) and have worked on several crowdfunding projects.
you can see some of my works on my Facebook page:

At the moment I'm working with Mustafa Bekir of Spevna Studio on the project Shieldwall Designs.

What do I want to achieve with this Kickstarter project?

Basically produce a series of  some miniatures sculpted by me, miniatures inspired by the classic ones of the 90s that I collected and painted. These miniatures will fit perfectly with your favourite wargames like Warhammer, Mordheim, Frostgrave or Dragon Rampant but they can be cool PC or NPC for your pen&paper roleplaying games.
I will also produce some accessories for the Ogre (see below), like alternate heads, weapons and bits of armor, so that you can customize your Ogre as you wish :)

The initial goal is set at 600 Euros, enough for starting the production of the first three figures.

Three heroes in a Dungeon

The path this project will take is like the exploration of a dungeon: as our heroes delve deeper, they will face menacing creatures like the Gargoyles or treacherous cultists and enchanters, but they may also find unexpected allies (like the Old Dwarf Miner)... Moreover Randolf the Ogre could find bits of armor, and weapons of his size!

Every room they explore represents a new Stretch Goal. Exploring the room will unlock different Add Ons: some of them will be FREE for those fortunate and wise backers that have chosen "The Ectasy of Coins" pledge!

Let me now introduce you to the protagonists of this (ahem) epic story: The Short the Shortest and the Bulky...

The Short: Bruno Greenfoot, fearless Halfling Fighter: He inherited a map of a dungeon from his great-uncle and decided to explore it in search of gold and glory...

The Shortest: Goldie the Fairy: He is looking for a brave fellow who can free his Familiar friends imprisoned in the dungeon by an evil mage, and if they can find a few gold coins along the way ...that’s not so bad, is it?

The Bulky: Randolf the Ogre was hired by Bruno as a bodyguard. He has a personal interest in entering the dungeon too .... armour of his size for free! And if mission takes too long... he has a fairy and a halfling when the food runs out..


Below you can see some of the add ons that (hopefully) will be unlocked. They can be of three different categories:

  • Dungeon Villains&Critters: the enemies of our heroes, they can be characters or generic creatures (like Kobolds)
  • Dramatis Personae: special characters that can be hired by our three fellows or that could join their mission for their own goals.
  • Accessories of the main characters (Randolf, Goldie and Bruno): they include equipments, weapons and so on
The Old dwarf miner could be of great help in a dungeon... if you have enough gems to hire him

Kobolds. They're are an unavoidable hazard of any underground exploration and are in almost every dungeon. There’s not much that can be done about that...apart from slaying them...and stealing all their gold...and booby trapping their bodies...

Gargoyles: not as common as kobolds but just as nasty! They bite, they scratch, and they FLY!

    A big thank to Mustafa Bekir for helping for me with the text in English and for the proofreading, and last but not least, for his contagious enthusiasm, and to Chris Nicholls for his support for producing and delivering my figures.



Postage

All postage will be charged at cost, and I will be using Royal Mail.

This link will give you an idea of how much postage within the UK will cost.

https://www.royalmail.com/personal/uk-delivery/1st-class-mail

https://www.royalmail.com/personal/international-delivery/international-standard

The packages will most likely be Large letter in size.

Once the Kickstarter is over, we will send you an PayPal invoice for the cost of postage.

For more informations about shipping don't hesitate to contact me.

Risks and challenges

There are few risks involved with this as the pre series miniatures are yet created, I'm working on the new ones and I have a caster lined up (Chris Nicholls of Macrocosm Miniatures).

The only challenge will be to get them to you in a timely fashion.

Some components (especially the armor parts) could be done in resin if this will ensure a better result. This could cause some small delay , but I'm pretty sure that all the stuff will be delivered within the month of September.

As soon as Kickstarter has released the funds, production will start immediately.
