Edit June 4th: The Kickstarter is LIVE!! Click here!!
In this post, we'll introduce you to a new member of the Jailbird Division, and tell you about the deals we've planned for the upcoming Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Kickstarter...
First, meet Punky.
The biggest mouth of the entire Jailbird Division.
Think Mad Max meets Tank Girl.
Always spoiling for a fight. Always pushing you for one. And never, ever, backing down from one. She'll do anything on a dare, and she'll always deliver!
As you may recall, we have endeavoured to create a pledge system that will allow you as much flexibility as possible while working within the Kickstarter system and guidelines. If you missed it, check out our blog post on The TGG Kickstarter Army Structure to see how things are planned so far.
However, beyond knowing what's coming, you're probably wondering how far your pledge amount can go.
Well, first, we should tell you that from the start, Raging Heroes' mission had been to deliver the best possible quality, casting and customer experience.
To do this, we work with the most exacting suppliers in the world.
And we spend A LOT of time and resources on designing and sculpting our miniatures.
Not to mention our personal goal of excellence for everything, from quality control to packaging and customer service.
This has paid off: “outstanding attention to details”, “virtually no flash”, “the poses are staggering”, “characterful models”, “few or no mould lines” ... are just a few of the comments we regularly get in our inbox and on our Facebook page.
This, however, is not inexpensive.
And yet, this is a Kickstarter that we're talking about!
And for this very special event, we worked very hard to be able to offer you very exclusive discounts...
So, what kind of deals can you hope to find in the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Kickstarter?
Well, there's gonna be plenty of them.
To thank you for your pledge, we have created rewards that feature discounts on ALL the TGG minis to thank you for pledging. The smallest discount is at 16.6%, but most of the minis are discounted between 20 of 40% off the estimated retail prices at final release time! And you won't have to wonder what's what: all the pricing info will be shared for each mini.
But in fact, the actual discount you'll get will be HIGHER than that!
Because we've planned much more than the basic discounts...
Better than 16 to 40%? Oh yes! And here's why:
Free bonus minis
Starting at the CAPTAIN BOX pledge level, free bonus minis are included in the pledge.
Free upgrade packs
Yours to unlock! When the KS campaign reaches specific stretch goals, we've planned for free upgrade packs (additional weapons and extra heads, for example) to the minis you'll have pledged for.
All all pledges above LIEUTENANT BOX will have access to freebies when they are unlocked.
Early Bird Specials
We know that many of you have been following and supporting the development of this project, and we think that Early Birds Specials are probably the best way to thank you for your support and your steadfastness. The means that if you can get one of those, you'll get an even better deal on the TGG minis!
Yes of course, we've planned one. She will be accessible for pledge levels LIEUTENANT BOX and up.
And yes, you've actually seen her concept art already...
And finally, in case you're still wondering what got us started on the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy, check out the Kurganova sisters.
We've set up a new page especially for the Kickstarter Drop Ship Programme, and we've added France, Belgium, Poland and more since our last update!
Well, as you know, to make this work, we need YOU!
A smart reader suggested that we provide banners to help spread the word on the Kurganova Shock Troops Kickstarter. So, DONE!
You can grab the banner below and link it to this Kickstarter page (http://www.ragingheroes.com/pages/kickstarter-news) we've set up (until the Kickstarter is actually live).
You can put it on your blog, or as your signature in forum posts, or anywhere else you can think of...
Or the French version:
We've mentioned it before, but may we also strongly suggest that you ask us (Asharah Raging) as a friend on Facebook, (for communication purposes, "Friending" Asharah is more effective than "Liking" the Raging Heroes page). At this point in time, Facebook is probably the best way to get real time info on what's going on with our Kickstarter and other projects.
Asharah Raging is already up 1200+ Friends since we've started communicating on this!
You can also follow us on Twitter. We're not very effective Twitterers yet, (but working on it); and all our Facebook posts do get an automatic Twitter update.
PS/ Want to make sure you know when we get started? Just sign up for our newsletter.
Want to help out? Please leave a comment below - just remember to use your actual email address so we can contact you (don't worry, it won't be visible online).
To make this happen, PLEASE, PLEASE, SPREAD THE WORD!
And a big heartfelt THANK YOU to those who already are!!!
