Title: Vanguard Miniatures' first official crowdfunder
Post by: Malika on November 17, 2017, 06:29:44 AM
So yeah, after a little delay Vanguard Miniatures first official crowdfunder has gone live (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/small-scale-armies-from-vanguard-miniatures#/)!

Quote
Who Are Vanguard Miniatures?

Vanguard Miniatures is an established wargames company with its own range of metal and resin miniatures (http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/), as well as plastic bases (http://vanguardminiatures.co.uk/product-category/bases/vanguard-bases/).

In order to ensure this campaign runs smoothly, Vanguard are teaming up with collaborators Troublemaker Games (https://www.facebook.com/TroublemakerGames/) to help run this campaign, as having run five successful Indiegogo Crowdfunders (https://www.indiegogo.com/individuals/1434646/campaigns) they're pretty good at knowing how this button-pushing bippety-boopety computers lark is supposed to work.

What We Need & What You Get

Our 6mm scale models in this funding campaign are intended to reinforce our Defeat In Detail range of models, by adding more models to the existing ranges.

As we cross stretch goals, we'll be unlocking more models, some of which can be seen in silhouette below...

We have many designs already sculpted, and without a crowdfunding campaign it would be another year or even two before we could afford to put them all into production, so your interest and support at this stage means we can put out more metal models at a much faster rate than would otherwise be possible.

The Models

All of the models in this campaign are to be METAL models, unless otherwise stated.

Most of the models have already been Matter Printed and are awaiting a trip to the casting foundry, whilst other models only exist as-yet in CAD form - your support now will ensure they become real tiny toy fighty models!

Can't direct link to the pictures of the campaign itself since IndieGoGo doesn't let me...

Another stretch goal reached
Hello again Backers,

Thanks to a bunch of pledges over night we have hit the next stretch goal sooner than expected.

The skinnerz field gun perk will be released once the set contents have been finalised these models are not quite ready yet I did not anticipate reaching this goal so soon. We will get them up as soon as humanly possible many thanks for your continued support and patience.

I anticipate this perk being available by mid week at the latest once Ben has finished sculpting work.

We are looking at adding more arm choices for the Hierarch figure and a quad rider to the Urban specialists set, to be confirmed.

Charon Fighter
Backers,

Once again we have hit a stretch goal before it's ready to release, you guys/gals are funding faster than we can finish new perks. Your support has been outstanding thank you all very much.

The Charon fighter stretch goal is now ready for pledges, also note that you can pledge for a mixed squadron deal consisting of four of each Tainted aircraft should you wish.

We do not foresee enough time for further new perks but do intend to create upgrades as it where for existing sets should funding merit it, for example the urban quad bike rider would be added to the urban specialist set and we are looking at more arm options for the Tainted Hierarch figure.

Kind regards John

Hello again Backers,

It has taken a while and much effort from Ben the designer to bring you the latest perk which is now ready for pledges. The Skinnerz heavy artillery set consisting of three different towed ordinance pieces to support your Skinnerz army.

I must thank you all once again for your continued pledges really appreciated people thank you so much.

Should funding allow we hope to create individual limbers for each weapon and if possible a crew set may be added as well.

Hi Backers,

Just a quick post to thank you all for the overwhelming show of support for this campaign, over 300% funded i'm truly stunned especially considering the financial restraints of this time of year.

We are now looking to upgrade the odd set or two with additional minis should funding continue to rise. First up will be a quad bike rider for the urban specialists set, second would be an extra set of arm options for the tainted hierarch figure, this will happen at 8.5k. Also planned will be a crew set for the skinnerz heavy artillery models with perhaps a few detail tweaks here and there as well at 9k. All these will be included with existing pledges.

Should we reach 9.5k of funding I will be offering a set of three or four backers exclusive character figures absolutely free to all supporters of the campaign. Planned are character leaders for the Urban regulars, Tainted Elites and Skinnerz drop troops sets.

It just remains for me to thank you all once again for the fantastic level of support really appreciated people. Here's to the next already at planning stage campaign.

Regards John

Campaign Over, now the work begins!
Hello Backers!

I'd just like to say thankyou on behalf of John and his sculpting team for the huge support shown for this campaign, over £10k now!

We've elected to use the "InDemand" function on the campaign to keep it open for any last minute top up pledges for the next week.

The current plan is that, due to the unexpectedly huge amount of support shown for the campaign, dispatches will be sent in March rather than the originally planned February.

 

Thanks everyone,

- Ben, Campaign Manager

Final prints for funder 1.

Hello backers,

Quick update, the final set of prints have arrived been cleaned up and will ship to the casters this week, that took longer than expected but that is the nature of the beast I suppose. Casting has begun with the first print batch moulds, and batch two mould making is in progress, the images below show the batch three prints shipping this week.

As can be seen we now have two variant Hierarch's in the tainted command set and I decided that the Skinnerz tractor needed an engine boost plug in in order to tow those heavy arty carriages and we have a portable generator option too all added to pledges for free.

Regards John

Update from the crowdfunder:
Quote
State of play for the campaign pledges.

Hello again Backer's,

A little update to keep you all informed on just what's happening.

Good news, I have received this week another batch of campaign casts with more to follow by the end of next week. I will be checking over all this mountain of casts and separating them into individual pledges ASAP.

Bad news, there have been some issues with a lot of the infantry casts so in order to get the best casts possible to you all I have been working on correcting the problems this week and have just shipped the figures back to the casters for moulding. This obviously means that these figure sets will be further delayed with late May sometime as the best estimate for delivery to me I can give at present.

The following sets will be delayed, Tainted command, Tainted heavy armour, both Urban regulars sets, Skinnerz artillery crews, Eloi Phase walkers and female commissars.

So what I intend to do as far as practicable is ship out all pledges with what models I have available and send the delayed infantry sets in a second shipping wave once they are in. Obviously this is not ideal but at least you guys will be getting the majority of your orders and I clear a load of castings I have lying around here. Costly for me to do it this way but I hate to keep people waiting.

Hope you guys find this an acceptable solution.

King regards John

The Skinnerz are assisted in many tasks by the diminutive energetic Gobblers, the first of House Fero’s old bio-engineered slave worker classes who followed the Skinnerz exodus of Novan space at the end of the great Skinnerz Rebellion. They have since carved out a place for themselves amongst the Skinnerz various tribes in many rolls including militarily as logisticians, maintenance crews, and artillery operators.

This set contains: 56 x gobbler’s helper figures

Please note that occasionally a few figures on each sprue have casting defects which we hope to address with a new mould at some stage but until that time I will be adding an extra sprue of figures free to compensate for any losses that may occur.
