Barren lands project. Furnishings and accessories for postnuclear board games.

Hello!

My name is Nastya, and I am owner of the Tiny Furniture Store. I'm passionate about creating, manufacturing and painting miniature accessories for tabletop games.

In addition to “Warhammer”, “Dungeons and Dragons” and “Frostgrave”, I really love computer games from the Fallout series and for a long time I dreamed of creating new miniatures in a post-apocalyptic - retro - futuristic style. That's why I decided to run a crowdfunding project and asking you for support.

My friends from  “MyWayMiniatures” company already developed 3-D models of 15 miniatures: computer panels, racks, desktop consoles, garbage cans and others. The entire set of models you can see in the description of the project below.

All these models will be printed on a high-quality industrial printer, and then cast in resin.

We have been professionally casting miniatures for a 2 year period. We have a workshop, pressure chambers, pumps and high-quality materials. We are deeply committed to ensuring miniatures that each client buys are the best quality.

 

What We Need & What You Get

3-d sculpting and specially 3-d printing in the best quality is very expensive. Total cost of one finished master-model is about $300-$400. That's why I need your support, folks. Without you it will take me about one year to produce all of these miniatures. 

To this day we have sculpted, print and cast the Grocery Stand miniature to give you a taste of the game visuals. If the campaign will be successfully funded, we will produce more according to the plan below.

Miniature creation process.

All miniatures for "Barren Lands" project designed and sculpted in 3D by our good friend Alexander Zigle from MyWaMiniatures company. Our business partners from factory in Saint Petersburg print prototipes using super quality industrial 3d printer with  ~0.1 mm layers. After receiving prototypes we mold and cast it in pressure cans in our workshop. If you have already bought tiny furnishings from in our shop, you know that we create the high quality product without bubbles and other defects.

 

Road Map

Optimistic view of the "Barren Lands" campaign future below.

June: prototyping

July: making initial molds, begin casting

August: Casting, casting, casting

September: Casting continues and shipping starts

October: Casting again and shipping main part of orders

November: no casting anymore! Shipping remain orders.

 

Risks and challenges

Risks to this project are minimal. We do moldmaking and casting every day. And have been doing so for almost 2 years, as a small workshop.

3d printing of prototypes is outsourced to trusted and friendly company. Molding and casting happens in our workshop. 

We cast miniatures in resin. And it is a intensive manual labor without any automotisation. Casting 10 units or casting 1000 units, its the same amount of time and work to produce each piece. 
If the project is particularly successful, then this may overstretch our current capacity. If so, we will expand production with new staff and equipment. 

This kind of miniature manufacturing is what we have been doing for years. There is nothing out of the ordinary workflow. Everything will be produced to our usual high standard.
