FAQ: Alien Adventurers - 32mm resin miniatures
For the most up-to-date information about the status of our project, check our project updates on Kickstarter!

What's the difference between a miniature and a Mod Kit?

The basic miniature comes assembled (or almost entirely assembled, in the case of the Dru) in a single piece, at the base price. The Mod Kit is an upgrade to a miniature that allows the swapping of different pieces when assembling the model. You need the base miniature in your pledge/pre-order to get the associate Mod Kit.

Are there bases available for Mega-Sized Miniatures (54mm and 75mm)?

No. For the production types and scale of this project, making bases for larger miniatures proved cost prohibitive and wouldn’t have been a good value for backers. There are many great third party suppliers to larger bases available online or in your local shop.

What are the different materials used in the various miniatures?

Almost all miniatures are 3D printed using a white, translucent resin. This is a great material that ships well and is easy to handle.

The Tusk, Tusk Mod Kit, and 32mm bases are all cast in a proprietary gray resin called Trollcast, by the team at Troll Forged. It’s very durable and lightweight.

There are some proofs 3D printed in a black resin that is very hard and tough, but brittle. We used this early in the process and for making “masters” for casting, but not in full production.

What is the Breachworld RPG?

Breachworld is a complete role-playing game set on a post-apocalyptic Earth. It uses the Mini Six rule system and is published by Jason Richards Publishing. The characters portrayed in the minis found in this campaign can be used at almost any table, but originated in this game. It’s great and you should try it! You can add on the PDF of the RPG at a huge discount, and there is a ton of “pay what you want” material found on DriveThruRPG.com for your consumption.

What is Jason Richards Publishing?

Hi, I’m Jason. JRP is my little company that I use to create things and offer them to the world. It’s mostly gaming-related, but not exclusively so. The company has dozens of products on DriveThruRPG.com and has now run two successful Kickstarter campaigns. Other things are in the works, so keep an eye out.

Will the miniatures be offered after the fulfillment/pre-order campaign ends?

I honestly don’t know. We have some preliminary deals in place to offer miniatures via select retailers, but that will be limited. Offering them as print-on-demand on Shapeways or a similar service is possible, but will be very pricey. It’s also possible that they could be offered as Add-Ons for future Kickstarter campaigns, but that’s not at all certain yet. Your best bet is to snag them now.

Can you customize one of your minis for me? Or create an entirely new one?

Almost certainly! One of the best things about running a Kickstarter like this that you get the process and details figured out, and gain the expertise required to produce. Email me at [email protected] and we can talk about it.

BackerKit FAQ

What is BackerKit?

BackerKit is a service that crowdfunded project creators use to keep track of hundreds to tens of thousands of backers—from shipping details, pledge levels, preferences and quantities, whether they have paid or had their card declined, special notes, and everything in between!

The BackerKit software and support team is independent from the campaign’s project team—BackerKit does not handle the actual reward shipping. For more information about the preparation or delivery status of your rewards, please check the project's updates page.

How does BackerKit work?

After the campaign ends, the project creator will send you an email with a unique link to your survey. You can check out a walkthrough of the process here.

I never received my invitation. How do I complete the survey?

The most common reasons for not receiving a survey email is that you may be checking an email inbox different from the email address you used to sign up with Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account, or it may be caught in your spam filter.

Confirm that the email address you are searching matches the email address tied to your Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or Tilt Pro account. If that doesn’t work, then try checking your spam, junk or promotions folders. You can also search for "backerkit” in your inbox.

To resend the survey to yourself, visit the project page and input the email address associated with your Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Tilt Pro account.

How do I update my shipping address?

BackerKit allows you to update your shipping address until the shipping addresses are locked by the project creator. To update your address, go back to your BackerKit survey by inputting your email here.

When will my order be shipped, charged or locked?

That is handled directly by the project creator. BackerKit functions independently of the project itself, so we do not have control of their physical shipping timeline. If you want to check on the project’s status, we recommend reading over the project's updates page.

I completed the survey, but haven't received my rewards yet. When will they arrive?

As BackerKit does not actually handle any rewards or shipping, the best way to stay updated on the shipping timeline would be to check out the project's updates page.
