Update - May 25 - New Perks for Contributors
We've added a new contribution level: Trailblazer at $75
You'll get all 6 miniatures PLUS $50 of Resin miniatures from Ainsty Casting, with free shipping! Ainsty sells resin boats, buildings, dungeons and other great looking scenery pieces. We're thrilled to be able ot offer this limted perk and will be extending this to the people who have already contributed at the $100 level.
Additionally, Matt Jackson ( http://www.msjx.org/ ) has offered to do a custom black and white map for two randomly selected contributors! Once we get to our $3,000 goal we’ll select the two winners from everyone who’s contributed from the $5 level and up.
We’re at 65% this morning with 7 days left. It’s getting down to the wire so anything you can do to help spread the word and bring in those remaining pre-orders would be very appreciated!
Update - May 19 - Finished Abraham Lincoln
Our first finished miniature! I can't wait to see this cast and painted. :)
Update - May 18 - Preview of Abraham Lincoln
Here it is, the first photo of our axe wielding Abraham Lincoln for Weird West Miniatures! Ian is still working on his face but we wanted to show you the progress so far.
Update - April 20 - New Preview Art and Weird West Cards
You can now see the preview art for Abraham Lincoln, Victorian Vampire, and Indian Princess on the gallery page. We'll continue to add artwork so you can see what we have in mind for all the miniatures.
As a surprise perk we're releasing a printable sheet of Weird West RPG character cards. People have seen these at RPG Conventions I've been at demoing Weird West and asked where they could get their own. Any contributor ($5+) will not only get a printed copy of Weird West, but we'll also email you the character cards as well.
Update - April 19 - New Perks and Contribution Levels
Everyone who contributes to our campaign will now receive a printed copy of the Weird West RPG when we ship out the miniatures.
We've added 3 new contribution levels to let you pick just the Heroes, just the Villains, or 2 sets of Villains (2 vampires, 2 mummies, 2 werewolves). We've also reduced the cost of some of the higher levels to make you get more for your contribution.
Thanks again for your support! :)
After the success of our Weird West RPG last year we're excited to announce our next project will be Six 28mm miniatures: Heroes and Villains of the Weird West! We're creating a set of minis you can use in your Weird West game as well as other Western, Steampunk or Alt-History tabletop games.
After we finish this campaign we plan on creating further sets of Weird West and Alt-History miniatures, and then release an expanded ruleset for Weird West miniature gaming later this year.
We need your help to make this happen!
We're working with talented UK sculptor Ian Mountain to create our Weird West miniatures. Ian is a great choice for this project having done Western, Historical and Alt-Fantasy sculpting for Crooked Dice, Gringo 40s, Zombiesmith, and other independent miniature companies.
We're ready to get started on producing the miniatures as soon as we meet our funding goals for this campaign. We'll also be working with the experienced team at RAFM Miniatures who will be helping us with our mould making and casting in white metal.
Heroes and Villains of the Weird West will include the following figures:
ABRAHAM LINCOLN - The 16th President of the United States. With an Axe
VICTORIAN VAMPIRE - This undead Cockney geezer hitched a ride to the Old West
BILLY THE KID - Outlaw and one of the most excellent gunfighters of the West
AMERICAN WEREWOLF - Tales of this wolfen fiend have reached as far as London
INDIAN PRINCESS - A brave huntress that doesn't back down in the face of evil
MUMMY OUTLAW - This ancient egyptian now stalks the western frontier for victims
The more funds we can raise the more miniatures we can include in our first release!
$6000 - Bonus Miniatures
Everyone at the $65 level and over will received an extra 2 miniatures:
SHAOLIN MONK - Travels the Old West armed only with his mastery of Kung Fu
THUNDER GOD - This Chinese spirit of Storms, Wind and Lightning is big trouble
Funding beyond the $6000 mark will let us add more bonus goals!
If you are outside the US and Canada please add the following shipping costs below so we can send your miniatures to you:
