Hell Hath No Fury is the Kickstarter for you, if you are looking for some amazing new miniatures, or great new terrain to show your characters they are really going through hell. A paltry £22 gets you the entire Kickstarter. There are some add-ons that are available in the Kickstater or in the Backerkit, as well. I know I will be adding them to my pledge. The Kickstarter even includes a “Claw Handed Demon”, a free sample miniature to download. The Kickstarter started strong, and has smashed through every stretch goal that Printed Obsession planned for, and I think he added a few extras on top of those, even, since it did so well. I didn’t add up all the miniatures and terrain pieces, but suffice it to say that “A LOT” is a bit conservative estimate. There were 21 stretch goals unlocked alone, above and beyond the base Kickstarter.
What miniatures games do you play?
- DnD mostly and I used to play a lot of WH40K, chaos specifically.
How long have you owned a 3D Printer and been making Miniatures and Terrain?
- I’ve owned a printer for around 5 years now but I’ve been printing for closer to 10 now as i work in the jewelry trade.
What printers do you use to print your models?
- CR-10 an Asiga Pico Pro and occasionally a Form 2 when i need larger ones printed.
What got you interested in modeling 3D models for print? What was your first model?
- Well originally I was planning to become a character artist. When i graduated i couldn’t find any work so I learned about 3d printing via the jewelry industry and built a career from that. Miniatures is more recent as my sister got me into DnD which led me to discover the community and well here we are. My first mini was a pack of wolves on MMF.
Do you have a favorite model you have created?
- Heh the Falor is probably my fave so far.
What are some of the challenges you have run into, starting your first Kickstarter?
- Honestly, underestimating how well it would do. i was expecting to struggle to get 100 or so backers. 800+ backers to date and I’ve had to add a lot more to keep those unlocks going. Lesson learned for next time.
How long have you been working on Hell Hath No Fury?
- Since Christmas, most evenings and weekends to crush out all these minis.
What is your workflow for creating pieces for Hell Hath No Fury?
- Start with good reference, sculpt in Zbrush, render in Keyshot, print for test.
What software do you use for your modeling?
- Zbrush – king of all sculpting programs.
- Well the Kickstarter really came about from my current DnD campaign. My paladin got fooled and charmed by a succubus cloaked as one of his commanders (it ended well enough once a fellow paladin got me uncharmed). From there I decided to make all kinds of ideas but it was EC3D who told me to stick with the demon theme to keep it well focused.
You have less than 2 weeks to go in your campaign. You have already utterly destroyed your funding goal. Now, you are funding stretch goals at an incredible rate. (already at 23 stretch goals, and not really slowing down). How is this doing compared to your expectations?
- Yea massive underestimation on my part. next time i’ll be running things a little differently.
You already have a number of awesome looking figures and terrain pieces not only created, but also printed. How long have you been working on getting this Kickstarter ready?
- Really, since Christmas, though I really hit my stride a month ago. My keyboard makes for an interesting pillow.
You talked about a few more “Hath No Fury” ideas. I know this may be a BIT premature, but have any of those started to take root and start ticking your creativity to get started?
- Oh, I have rough ideas for all of the themes for the next campaign. It’s just a case of picking one which your readers will help decide. Personally, I’m looking forward to the fey wilds the most. Plenty of scope there for miniatures.
I hope you enjoyed this interview. I know I am really excited for this Kickstarter. The Photon is probably a bit scared at the thought of producing all of these miniatures. I am sure it will do just fine, though. Check out more Kickstarters in our Kickstarter list for April.
