I am toying with the idea of using kick starter to help me dedicate some time to my minis and games business. I didn't want to jump on the bandwagon as the hobby is flooded as it is, but being pulled all over the place by work really inhibits my plans.
Here are the hovering projects I have. If there is a kickstarter here holla in the comments:
*Dwerg series 2- artillery- modular troops and war machines.
*Skulldred core rules, toad minis, skully mini, portal minis, resin dread tokens, lasercut sticks and tokens.
*Dundred RPG: old skool dndesque game with modern rules
*Dundred lairs: Floorplans for 30mm bases, + card buildings ala 3rd ed.
*McNastybeastie: shakesperian scots minis. Laird, lady, helldog, clansmen, spear girl
*Dungeon Noobs boxed set: rpg foolish minis on their first dungeon raid
*Stardred skirmish: Skulldred with blasters! 80's style future minis action plus minis inspired by the era. Space helmets, cricket pads and laserguns anyone? Think eagle, future shock, starblazers, Druillet and Mobius.
*Missing bitz: replacement proxy parts for classic minis such as early citadel giants and wheels for war machines.
*chaos halflings. 'Cause.
*Steampunkish/creepy cyber robotic spiderlegs and limbs to fit any minis.
*Amulet spell toads. 15mm versions. 28mm versions are awaiting production molds and webstore.
*restoring classic minis web book- kind of a heroes for wargames 2 style thing.
After these I was thinking of entering the resin kit market, getting stuff cast in europe and distributed from the UK, adding modular gaming thingies to augment my aussie made metals (I hate metal modular minis hence resin).
This would allow me to put into practice some of the ideas I have explored within my blogs. I am, after all, a pro digital character sculptor and have all the same software and haptic hardware citadel use- no reason not to explore my own 80s scifi universe in an affordable modular way, right?
Kickstarters have worried me in the past because of my health- particularly my sudden chronic energy drops - it seemed random... however I am now diagnosed, am on the right diet and getting treatment, so thats not an issue anymore. I am shiney and new and ready to go!
Anyway, I would love to hear you thoughts on Kickstarting Darkling games. Its all about you folk after all! Now back to Skulldred editing!
