Wizard of Trash is creating Game Supplements, Miniatures, Terrain, and Mead

First of all, thank you for taking a look. The fact that you are even looking here at all fills me with warmth and joy. I'm here because I enjoy sharing my hobbies with the world, especially when I make something that I'm proud of, or that others can use.

What I'm already doing is aggressively photographing, blogging, and serving as a hobby guru for games like Necromunda, Warhammer 40k, D&D 5th Edition, and Magic the Gathering. I share home-brewed rules and tools that I've developed for my own local group, as well as event info for games I'm running locally and at conventions like Gen Con Indy. I'm going to keep doing this regardless of patronage.

What I can do differently with a little support is the following.
  • Battle Reports - for games like Warhammer 40k, Kill Team, and Necromunda
  • Tutorial Videos - for hobby techniques in miniature painting, sculpting, and terrain building
  • Campaign Modules/Scenarios - for D&D 5th edition, skirmish games, and Mtg
  • Podcasts - of me talking about the various hobbies, recordings from game sessions, etc.
  • Surveys - for what I should work on next, what color schemes I should use, YOU DECIDE
  • Food Recipes - for hungry and weary travelers, including Mead recipes.
  • Mead - a good enough batch to put on store shelves or serve at a local pub
  • Finish Prototypes - I have bins full of design notes for tabletop games, could FINISH THEM
 I've got a grand dream of a combination meadery-and-hobby supply shop complete with gaming tables and work-space for hobbyists of all kinds (keeping the bar area separate of course, to keep it family friendly). Even though this dream is impossible erm, challenging, the rest of what I'm aiming for will be possible even with minor patronage.

So if you want to see more stuff like this (the first of my painted Necromunda gangs)


Or hope to have a sample of this (it doesn't look like much now, but its Mead in-the-making)

Then your assistance would be so very helpful!

I don't plan to ever live off of this patronage. I already have a career where I am comfortable and happy. The funds I acquire here will go directly into the supplies, tools, and travel for announced projects. I won't starve or even stop creating in the absence of funds, it will simply affect the scale and pace of my projects. In the unlikely event where this can become a career, well then I'll have to do something glorious and humiliating to celebrate.

Social issues such as Economic Inequality, Gender Equality, LGBTQ rights, OP Rules, and Unfair Nerfs are all very important to me. I sometimes choose to discuss these issues in my content. As a member of the City Watch, you will have my ear on these topics. I'll weigh in on these issues in my content and credit your suggestions. You also gain access to the Inner Circle in the Discord Channel and the rank of City Watch.

Executive Officer
$50 or more per month
As an Executive Officer, you will have the right to request more of your favorite content, or to have me branch out into something new!  Before I send out a Content Survey for voting, I will consult with the Executive Officers for submissions. Pending approval, I will add or tweak options on the Content Survey, or work your request into its own post. Executive Officers and up get their own channel in the Hobby Heap discord as well.

Ringleader

You'll notice that my hands sometimes appear in my content. As a ringleader, you'll get to pick a finger, and decide what appears on that finger in every ounce of content that includes my hands (pending my approval). If you have a specific ring in mind, a portion of your contribution will go towards the purchase of said ring (if I don't already have it). Choice of finger is first-come first-serve, and the fingers where i wear my engagement ring and wedding band will be off-limits. Ringleader comes with its own rank on the Discord channel, along with the rights and privileges of an Executive Officer.
Includes Discord rewards
Corporate Sponsor

Corporation or otherwise, sponsors at this level will get the privilege of seeing and hearing "brought to you by..." followed by your name, business, web-site, or expensive inside joke (pending my approval).

Corporate Sponsors get their own Discord rank, and have the rights and privileges of an Executive Officer. 
Includes Discord rewards

All of the rights and privileges of Corporate Sponsor. In addition to a sponsorship message, a design or logo of your choice will be incorporated into terrain, larger miniatures, or dice featured in Battle Reports and Build-Paint-Review articles. A vector image of the design will need to be provided, and on request, product placement could be incorporated. This too could be used as an expensive joke, pending my approval.
Includes Discord rewards
Goals
46% complete
1st Goal - I'll set up a private Discord channel for hanging out, hobby chatter, etc. called the Hobby Heap! Citizens or higher can join, but there will be a channel for Consul level and up, and another just for Executives and up. This comes with the added bonus of having access to me while I'm hobby-ing.
