For some reason it took a pint of cider and much deliberation to actually just start typing this blog post. When I haven’t posted in a while I start to ponder how to return. Do I recap all that has happened since I last blogged? A bad idea since I’d spend the day figuring out what all that is. No, let’s just keep it simple, current and relevant.
My Scum & Smugglers Kickstarter is live!
It can be hard to manage time between various tasks and hence I’ve neglected posting on my own blog.
With just over 3 days until its conclusion, the Kickstarter has been funded, broken my previous Kickstarter’s total and is working through the (more sensibly paced) stretch goals well.
Previously, I introduced Arim. He was one of the five starting characters for the project launch. Here are the other 4.
After the success of my first Kickstarter – Frills & Fauna, it seems obvious to me that I should sustain use of the crowd-funding strategy to reach out to an audience. Despite being incredibly niche, the project raised more money than sales of anything else I’ve sculpted, combined. Admittedly, I am fairly new to the scene so that’s not a major statement, but when you are trying to make a living from the art, it’s one hell of a tasty pie to eat from.
Here is the live link to the Kickstarter project:
Here are a couple of shots of the actual cast Cirripods against a selection of models:
And a look at what is on offer at time of launch:
In order to be able to show prospective customers how the final product will look, I had one o fthe family sets cast up before the project launches. The Cirripods arrived today and so I’ve put together a scale shot. Hopefully I will find some time to paint them up tomorrow.
The Kickstarter launches tomorrow at 12pm GMT. That’s 15 hours away!
With just 2 days until launch, it’s hard not to get impatient and excited. The project page is ready to go. Now we need to get the word out!
Here’s a recap of the models available upon launch:
