How exciting! I’ve had my eye on so many ewal dvergar minis before. Could be a great chance to get hold of some. @Zoddtheimmortal@Sjoerdo , @Iceman and @Zanko and any other old school “helm” collectors will Probably get a kick out of these.
I’ll post Kickstarter link here if I see it first :)!
So I’m very basic terms someone has a product they want to sell but need guaranteed sales before they can produce it. So they say hey I’m making this thing and if 100 people agree to buy it it will go on sale. 100 people all say yeah I’ll spend the 20 pounds or whatever to buy this and then all the money gets sent to the maker and they make the thing.
Sometimes kickstarters exceed the target and add extra goodies and stuff to what they sells other times they fall short and it doesn’t get made. Every Kickstarter I’ve backed has been miniatures related and all have been a success. However just ask about dancing yak miniatures and a few dudes around here will tell you it doesn’t always come to fruition. That was a quite high profile chaos dwarf Kickstarter where people sent their money and never got their stuff. Not fun.
I’d say this is low risk tho. We know @Clam and we know Old school miniatures and know they are good eggs. Kickstarter helped get their John Pickford arsecannon released so they’ve got previous success.
For sure im saving up for september. I have a bunch of these models from clam and they are great. You get lots of top helms that can fit on different bodies for the crossbow dwarves. I think this line will do very well ( just please dont be too dear for me!)
Great to see! Good going, @Clam and John Pickford. Lovely miniatures! Best of luck.
As to KS in general, small limited Kickstarters for cast miniatures can be done in a safe way: Have all moulds finished and test cast. That way you can calculate hard numbers rather than estimating and guessing. That way you know everything works before rolling it out for people to back with their money.
Oxymandias has a great way of making complicated things simple to understand. This I have found is usually the opposite with most explanations. Hats off to him and his ability to teach an old hob grot new tricks.
