Kickstarter Pledge Tiers!

UPDATE: Add-ons!
Interested in getting additional figures when we launch? Great news! With Add-ons, you can custom tailor your pledge to receive exactly the number of minis you want!



How to select add-ons:
  • Go to the Hero Forge Kickstarter page.
  • Press the "Manage Your Pledge" button.
  • You will be shown a list of the pledge tiers we offer. Without changing your pledge tier, simply increase your pledge amount by the total number of add-ons you'd like.
  • At the end of the campaign, you will be contacted to verify which add-ons you have opted to receive.

NOTE: Kickstarter does not allow a project to provide more then ten (10) of something as a reward, so steer clear of attempting to add more than a combined total of ten miniatures or statuettes (combined).


This is a more in-depth description of our pledge tiers, including commentary, tangents, and more in-depth descriptions! Note that all pledge tiers including shipping and handling, unless you live outside of the United states, in which case you’ll pay a bit extra for shipping.

$1
—SCOUT—
  • Be added to our mailing list and receive exciting e-mail updates of our progress and additions.

$20
—PATRON—

  • Receive one customized 28mm-30mm character in lower detail material. Rougher texture means it's not optimal for painting, but it is especially durable and flexible which is ideal for heavy use. (Note: all other tiers do offer ultra-detail plastic as an option, which is very suitable for painting and display)!
  • NOTES: 'Strong plastic,' though less detailed than the ‘ultra-detail plastic’ that we consider our default material, is nevertheless a great choice for gamers who want a robust, durable, fully customized mini, but don’t necessarily need incredible detail. It has a rougher texture and is not ideal for painting. We want to offer solutions for all tabletop gamers, including the price-conscious ones! All other tiers, apart from statuettes and the "Novice Party," tier offer miniatures in your choice of launch materials.

This material is for tabletop gamers who want several customized miniatures for a lower backing pledge than out "full party" tier.
