Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Kickstarter Ends Soon!

Friday, October 13, 2017

Only a few days remain in the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures kickstarter project by the folks over at Ninja Division! They've already exceeded their fundraising goal and unlocked a number of cool and weird aliens and characters for you to drop onto your Starfinder campaign table (including Skittermanders, Ysoki Bounty Hunter, and Necrovite!). Today, we have a preview of some of the miniatures that will be unlocked shortly. To start, here's an image of the Swarm Thresher Lord based on artwork from the Alien Archive! Taking up four creature slots, the Swarm Thresher Lord miniature will be a biggun (large size).

Next, we have the Swarm Corrovox, the Swarm "Soldier," also found in the Alien Archive.

And for our final reveal, we have renders from Ninja Division of the Vesk Free Captain!

These are just a few of the awesome miniatures just waiting to be unlocked and spread across the galaxy. Don't miss out—go to the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures kickstarter page and back it now!

Sculpting is 100% done (even though the tracker hasn´t been updated).

Update #36 shows both the Skittermander & it´s alternative (both looking great) version.

There are still 34 minis to be approved, if the tracker is accurate about that.
There are also quite a few sculpts to be shown, at least a dozen if my quick count is to be trusted.

Update #37 shows the two different Ikeshti Brood Minders and states:

100% of the sculpts are completed and the last batch is under review right now at Paizo.


I'm still sad that neither WizKids nor Reaper got the Starfinder licence to make the minis. Looks like it will be pawns and proxies.

I found out that my Humble bundle minis are delayed until later this year, so I checked to see how the KS is doing. The latest update is that six of the figures will ship in May. Which is ... not great. At that rate it would take years to fulfill.

Years to fulfill. That would make it a fairly normal Ninja Division kickstarter. I have a hunch that Paizo will put enough pressure on ND to make sure they fulfill this project before some of their older unfulfilled kicistarters.

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Ninja Division will be making another shipment in June to get caught up on the miniatures shipments and will be continuing monthly shipments to ensure that the miniatures you've pledged for get in your hands as soon as possible.

I haven’t seen a May shipment yet. Don’t know how long it was supposed to take to get to Australia. ND’s policy seems to be continually announce what’s about to happen, then not bother actually following up on delivery. I guess I’ll wait until the end of June and send them another email/message if I haven’t seen anything.

Did you get a shipping notice... Paizo shipments take up to 36 business days if it was shipped on May 1st today would be business day 34, so still wouldn’t be late.... I can’t assume ND paid for faster shipping.

No notice. They have apparently not finished the May shipment. My gripe here is there’s no information on how far along they are - just more assurances of future behaviour.

I don’t understand why Kickstarter creators make posts along the lines of “Things are still going great!” or “We’re going to ship a ton of packages this weekend!” instead of “We’ve shipped 19 packages this week, 543 of the May shipment remain”.

Lots of people are complaining about "sticky" minis.
The quality of the first wave minis seems questionable.
The pictures i have seen so far are not very promising either.
I'll reserve final judgement until i hold the prepainted minis in my own hands, which i'm willing to bet won't be on august 2nd.

Either way, i hope that Paizo can find another producer which is more reliable for future Starfinder minis, as a one year delay to make 15 prepainted minis is unacceptable.

Speculation on the Kickstarter is that the 'sticky' figures weren't left to cure for long enough and that it should be possible to leave them for a few weeks somewhere warm and dry to finish off that process which should remove the issue.

I haven't heard anything official confirming that though.

Steve, that's the report that I received from Ninja Division at PaizoCon as well. In the rush to get the first shipment sent out to backers, some of the minis weren't given sufficient drying treatment.

Thanks, Glenn. Hopefully it's no long term issue. From what I've seen the minis look terrific. I'm just a little annoyed at trying to get actual information from Ninja Division (rather than breathless announcements about how good it's all going to be in the future...).

Despite my irritability, I really appreciate Paizo continuing to post updates as you hear them. The only thing keeping the prepainted minis in my sidecart is the fact that you folk have partnered with ND, so there must be something to commend them. Communication with customers isn't it, unfortunately. :(
