Geek Tank Games have teamed up with Printable Heroes to Kickstart an extensive, 200 or so, collection of robust paper miniatures for your tabletop RPG battle maps. They’re also working on unique bases that allow you to pop those paper minis in and have them stand up.
It’s going well. At the time of writing, there are 26 days left, Geek Tank Games have asked for $35,000, and they’re closing in on $60,000. If you want to pledge, or see progress, then pop over to the campaign page.
This is one of those Kickstarters where more and more people join in the higher the tier is. Why? People want complete sets, and there are loads to buy here.
The tiers, though, are just for the paper minis. The unique bases and smart holding sheets seem to be reserved for add-ons later on.
Geek Tank Games are protecting themselves, and us, with this approach. They’re not promising any prices for those bases. However, it also means we have no idea how much those bases will cost. If they’re expensive, then the paper minis become less economically attractive.
I’m still tempted, though. I don’t have the space for 3D minis. I don’t have the talent to paint.
Let’s look at costs. At the time of blogging, two backers have promised $600 for loads of sets.
You can start at $15 for one, though. There’s $30 for two and $45 for three. The first discount starts at four sets, which cost $58.
The most popular tier, so far, is $91 for seven sets.
Delivery date? No promises. Hopefully, within 4 to 5 months of the campaign ending.
