Samurai-Ninja-Warrior-Monk-Ratmen Army Kickstarter from Cromarty Forge

Samurai-Ninja-Warrior-Monk-Ratmen Army Kickstarter from Cromarty Forge

Beautiful, highly detailed, lead free pewter and resin, rat-men army for 10mm tabletop wargaming.

About

Combining digital sculpting with cutting edge 3D printing, and over 30 years of metal miniature casting experience, Cromarty Forge 10mm bring you these exquisitely detailed 10mm scale Rat-Men. Having completed the design and testing phase, I need your support to move into manufacturing.

If you help fund this project you will receive a set of highly detailed 10mm Rat-Men models cast in lead-free pewter and high quality resin. All models are supplied unpainted, and without bases.

Select one of the reward tiers to the right. To add additional units simply apply multiples of £9 to the base pledge level. You can select your units using the survey that will be sent at the end of the kickstarter. To streamline this kickstarter I have used Kickstarter's inbuilt postage and packaging.

Scotia Grendel: thanks to Robbie and Elton, a sculptor could not wish for a finer casting forge, better advice, or more know how.

Mathew Harker: Many thanks for your superb painting!

Andy Meechan: a better font of knowledge, advice and support than any sculptor / gamer could hope to deserve.

Andy Jarvis @ MOB Games: thanks for support in getting this project off the ground, and advice on casting.

Warmaster Podcast: for encouragement, and getting the word out there about these minis. You chaps do a bang up job of supporting a game I love.

Rik Adam's: for support in getting the project to this stage.

Stirling war-games club: for running a damn fine Warmaster tournament where these minis were aired for the 1st time.

Risks and challenges

The design and testing phase of this project are complete, the miniatures shown here are painted examples of the final lead-free pewter and resin models. Your support of this Kickstarter will fund the move to production and manufacturing of these miniatures. The remaining risks associated with this project concern manufacturing and distribution:
- Scotia Grendel (a company with over 30 years experience in casting of metal miniatures) will be handling the manufacturing.
- I have eighteen years experience in delivering large scale time critical projects.
- Depending on how well the campaign goes, I will either be completing the packing and distribution myself, or using the services of Scotia Grendel.

Delivery dates above include a healthy margin on the anticipated timeline for manufacturing and distribution, I intend to deliver metal into your hands this year.
