KICKSTARTER: CTHULHU MYTHOS FOUNDRY STYLE





A través de este impresionante Kickstarter, ya que no es menos al tener un Cthulhu de 16.5 pulgadas de alto, 21 con las alas, van a subvencionar la creación de estas increíbles "miniaturas" y toda la estructura de Mythos Foundry. La participación para Cthulhu es de 150 $, el precio de venta al publico será de 300 $. Además a cada nivel desbloqueado se irán publicando más miniaturas, el cazador de Mytos, Wilbur Whateley, etc... que se añadiran al nivel de Cthulhu o se podrán escoger por separado.


My goal with Mythos Foundry is to provide finely crafted miniatures, sculptures, art prints, gaming gear, and collectables. This Kickstarter will help in laying a foundation for this.
The funding of this Kickstarter will allow us to produce the model kits, miniatures and art prints. Funding will also go towards the production of a web site for Mythos Foundry.
Cthuhlu is a work in progress. These images will be updated as the sculpt progresses.

Cthulhu is 16.5 inches to the top of his head, 21" tall with the wings!
Sculpted by Michael Brand
Miniatures: The miniatures are in Trü 30™. Trü 30™ is approximately 1/61 (1/60.96) scale, where a six foot tall human would be 30mm to the top of the head. All the models in the Trü 30™ range will maintain the 1/61 scale to each other (Cthulhu is also in Trü 30™).
A pledge of $150 at the Cthulhu Level is an amazing deal, as the Cthulhu kit will retail for $300. All miniatures unlocked during the stretch goals will also be added free to the Cthulhu, Elder Thing, and Old Ones Levels.
The miniatures and Cthulhu sculpt will be cast by Ed Fortae at Troll Forged Miniatures.
Art Prints: There are four levels of art prints;


Cthulhu Model Sheet
Cthulhu Model Sheet
Night Gaunt Level: The Night Gaunt Level is a 17x22 black and white print on heavy bond paper.


Ghoul Level: The Ghoul Level is a 12x18 lithograph print on 110# archival cover paper. Add $20 to your pledge for each additional print.
Mi-Go Level: The Mi-Go Level is a 24x36 print on 212g poster paper. Add $40 to your pledge for each additional print.
Shoggoth Level: The Shoggoth Level is a 24x34 canvas print. Each canvas print will have a 2" border so that if you wanted to wrap the canvas on a wood frame the finished size will be 20x30. Add $60 to your pledge for each additional print.
A 12x18 Art Print (Same as Ghoul level) of the art unlocked in the stretch goals will be added free to the Cthulhu, Elder Thing, and Old Ones Levels.

Stretch Goal #1 $9,500: The Colonel, Mythos Hunter



The intrepid hunter of Mythos horrors. 30mm (This is the "28mm miniature"shown in the video). Add on to your pledge for $8, Cthulhu Level and above will receive one free!
Sculpted by Michael Brand

Stretch Goal #2 $12,000: Art Print - The Dunwich Horror

An art piece inspired by "The Dunwich Horror" a short story by H.P. Lovecraft.

Stretch Goal #3 $14,000: Miniature - Wilbur Whateley



"It was partly human, beyond a doubt, with very man-like hands and head, and the goatish, chinless face had the stamp of the Whateleys upon it. But the torso and lower parts of the body were teratologically fabulous, so that only generous clothing could ever have enabled it to walk on earth unchallenged or uneradicated." ("The Dunwich Horror")
Wilbur Whateley from "The Dunwich Horror". 43mm. Add on to your pledge for $10, Cthulhu Level and above will receive one free!
Sculpted by Michael Brand

Stretch Goal #4 $16,000: Art Print - Pickman's Model

An art piece inspired by "Pickman's Model" a short story by H.P. Lovecraft.

Stretch Goal #5 $18,000: Miniature - 1:6 Scale Ghoul Bust

“These figures were seldom completely human, but often approached humanity in varying degree. Most of the bodies, while roughly bipedal, had a forward slumping, and a vaguely canine cast. The texture of the majority was a kind of unpleasant rubberiness.” (“Pickman’s Model”)

RISKS AND CHALLENGESLearn about accountability on Kickstarter

As a Creative Director and Production Manager I am well versed in the pitfalls and challenges of the production environment. My main experience has been in the print industry which is fast paced with quick turn arounds and large volumes.
Teaming up with Troll Forged Miniatures is also a great benefit as Ed has proven that he can deliver a great product.
One of the biggest challenges will be figuring out the best method to cast the Cthulhu kit. With Ed's expertise and a realistic delivery date I am confident that we will be able to deliver a great product to you.
