Bang on schedule, the Kickstarter for Hero Forge 2.0 launched. Bang. It funded.
We’re still in day one, and the project which wanted $42,000 to finance some impressive full-colour 3D printing is about to smash the $1,000,000 mark. You can check out the details or join the 10,000 other backers over at the Kickstarter campaign page.
Hero Forge 2.0 will be a tool that lets you design your own custom mini by mixing and matching from templates and colours. The mini itself might be printed in colour, or you can quickly get a human at Hero Forge to paint it for you.
I can’t paint, not even a bit, and so this service is incredibly tempting for me and judging by Hero Forge 2.0’s numbers I am not alone.
A pledge of $39 (about £31) is enough for one full-colour 3d printed mini, early access and exclusive Kickstarter decal.
Or you could use $39 to get access to the token maker for virtual tabletops if you roleplay online without actual models.
At the time of writing, more than 4,000 gamers have gone for the 3D printed model and over 100 for the tokens. You can see what’s exciting people.
You get more models, the more your pledge.
The early bird $99 option will get you lifetime access to the token maker. That tier will close 48 hours after the campaign opened.
Hand-painted custom minis are limited to 1000 available in this Kickstarter and cost $149.
One person has already claimed the $10, 000 super-mega backer pack. Now that’s someone determined to add minis to their tabletop gaming.
