About Dread Forge Miniatures

Hail adventurers! Welcome to the DREAD FORGE!
OCTOBER PACK NOW LIVE! 
POLL FOR DECEMBER PACK RUNNING FOR PATRONS!
(2 Days left on voting!)


ABOUT US
Here at 
Dread Forge Miniatures, we are looking to supply you with unique, stylized, encounter-based miniatures driven by an underlying story to enhance and inspire creative campaigns for tabletop gaming. Whether you are a Dungeon Master looking to throw something new at your party, a Player Character searching for that next mini that represents your hero, or a Miniature Enthusiast we hope that our work will excite you to get out there and get gaming.

We were so excited to start making miniatures for you that we already have more than two years of content planned! In addition to this content, we plan on running Patron Polls so you can vote on what content we release to you next.

With your support, we strive to deliver high-quality monthly miniature sets. In addition to the monthly sets, we have a series of patron powered stretch goals that will focus on adding additional (Dread Forge) tier miniatures, additional monthly set releases, and future (Raid Bosses).

The miniatures we supply are designed with resin and FDM printing in mind. We are always working to improve printing performance to make it as easy as possible to get right to gaming. Currently, we test print on an Anycubic Photon.

HOW DO MONTHLY RELEASE TIERS WORK
Becoming a Gravelurker or higher gives you access to the Forge Master's Starter Kit which will constantly be updated for as long as we are able to create miniatures (scroll down for more info on the kit). As well as an invitation to participate in Patron exclusive polls.

Once you have finished lurking your way out of the graveyard, and are fitted with your custom armor in The Armored Dead tier you will gain access to our monthly release base packs. Base packs include (5) thematic models every month.

Dread Forged (Berzerkers) and Dread Forged will unlock access to the base and bonus packs along with any variants we have the opportunity to create for each month's release. 

At this time the Bonus pack includes:
(1) Special "Rare" Model
- Any variant models we are able to produce for the month.

Looking to spread the plague of our miniatures to your followers? Think about joining our Plague Bearer (Merchant) tier. This tier allows you to sell 3D prints of our sculpts for profit. This does not allow molds to be made for mass production. You can sell prints of any of our sculpts released via Patreon or Gumroad as long as you are currently an active pledge of our Plague Bearer (Merchant) tier. (Please refer to IMPORTANT note down below)

If at any time you wish to stop selling 3D prints of our models you can step down to our lower tiers or cancel your pledge.

Plague Bearer (Merchant) tiers include an agreement that whenever you are posting on your website, social media, etc. you will credit the artist myself (Nicholas Callow) from Dread Forge Miniatures as the sculptor and creator of the work. We would greatly appreciate a link to our social media and/or our Patreon page as well! Thank you.

We are always on the lookout for ways to provide more!

Keep your eyes peeled around the holidays for holiday-themed models! These will be released for free for everyone on Thingiverse and linked here!

HOW IT WORKS
Upon pledging, your first month's amount will be deducted. Following, that amount will continue to deduct on the 1st of each month until canceled. 

You will immediately be able to view the general posts and posts for your pledge tier level.
The link for the starter kit will be included in our first post, and models will be added each month.

Monthly Releases
Posts will be made on the 1st of the month and include a link to that month's release.
Within the dropbox link, you will find the files ready for downloading and printing! The links for each monthly pack will be accessible for the duration of that month. Once the month comes to an end they will be on our (Gumroad Website) for sale. Certain models will be chosen for free download on Thingiverse.

Links for previous months will deactivate on 1st of the following month.

Stretch Goal Releases
Stretch goal unlocks will be released to Patrons Only (All Tier Levels) 

- If hit (before the 15th) of the month the stretch goal will be released during the next month.
- If hit (after the 15th) of the month the stretch goal will be released during the following month.


PATRON POLLS
We are currently running our first patron poll for December's pack will continue them throughout the year. These polls will determine the next month’s release. Polls will include the most popular suggestions along with some of our future planned themes. Random polls may appear to patrons to engage hearing feedback and some just for fun, so be on the lookout!
