Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Partnership

Three flaming skeletons with mouths open wide attacking a 4-armed, bipedal alien with grey skin and an angular face and dark pits for eyes. The alien's upper left arm is wielding some sort of yellow energy bolt. The silhouette of another adventurer looking on in horror can be seen in the foreground.

We have some really good news to share about the Starfinder Masterclass miniatures Kickstarter! Paizo is pleased to announce that Archon Studio will be taking over the license to produce Starfinder Masterclass miniatures, formerly produced by Ninja Division. As part of the agreement, Archon will fulfill backer rewards from the Starfinder Masterclass Kickstarter.

About Archon Studio: With their Unicast technology, Archon Studio has published several board games with miniatures, including League of Ancient Defenders, Vanguard of War, and Chronicle X. Recently, Archon Studio advanced its technology to hard plastic, which resulted in even more highly detailed miniatures.

Archon Studio also recently moved into the production of tabletop terrain with Rampart Wargaming. In August this year, its second tabletop terrain project, Dungeons & Lasers, is being launched on Kickstarter.

There are a few areas we want to highlight:

Archon Studio will be producing plastic miniatures instead of resin. They will also be starting over with Kickstarter fulfillment; this means that backers who have already received resin miniatures from Ninja Division will receive those minis again from Archon, this time in plastic.

Archon Studio plans to ship Kickstarter rewards in waves. Approximately every 6 months, the pledge rewards produced during the previous 6 months will be shipped to backers free of charge. Additionally, any time a Kickstarter backer purchases any Starfinder mini from Archon Studio—whether that’s a new mini or a duplicate of a Kickstarter mini—they will also ship any released Kickstarter miniatures due to that backer for no additional charge. Details of which minis are shipping when, and how to purchase other miniatures, will be posted on the Kickstarter page.

Archon Studio will be fulfilling backers in Europe, and Ninja Division will be shipping to the rest of the world. Paizo does not have specific answers to fulfillment questions: if you’re a backer with a question about your order, you’ll need to post the question to the Starfinder Masterclass Kickstarter page.

Thanks for all of your patience as we worked with Ninja Division and Archon to get this done. We’re looking forward to some epic minis!

Thanks, Dragnmoon. That's a pleasant surprise. Fingers crossed mine were included as well (although like you, despite half a dozen emails they've never actually told me whether they were or weren't - even when I explicitly ask me they cut-and-paste the usual "here's what to do to have your kickstarter minis included in your shipment" guff).

There might be a communication problems due to language barrier.

Came to check in, will check in again as people get orders. I am wondering if waiting for wave 2 is the best idea now... It's what I was going to do but now I am not so sure if it has been this confusing for people doing it during wave 1


I posted this to the KS comments:

"I paid my original kickstarter fee, but never got the pledge manager to work. I was never able to select any minis. I sent messages to ND but they just kept saying it was the PM fault. I have posted and messaged again recently but cannot get anyone to tell me what the status of my order is or how to fix it.

Can anyone here suggest a new approach or POC to help me out?"

I was directed to this forum thread for suggestions as Paizo personnel seem to be regularly posting here. I have read through the entirety of the posts and do not see anyone mention an issue similar to mine. Still looking for a resolution.

ND originally posted that if there was any trouble with the PM to contact them. I did and they said to work with GOTT. When I contacted GOTT they told me to go to ND. ND told me they cannot help me and to go back to GOTT. I kept all of this informative correspondence.

I selected the adventure pledge and paid 100$ to KS. I never got the PM to work so I was not able to pay for shipping or select any of my Hero / Encounter Slots. What is the best way to ascertain where my pledge/order is in the process?

The (convenient) Void of Nonexistence would be my guess.

To follow up - my shipment arrived today and included zo! plus half a dozen NPC figures as it was supposed to.

So Archon delivered everything to me as they said they would and the process of bypasding ND by ordering a single figure from them worked fine. (Pretty impressive really - no way they made any money on that transaction).

The communication was terrible (they still havent confirmed what was in this package despite multiple specific requests) but the outcome excellent.

I'm not sure how or if theyre tracking add-ons. The six extras were collectively labelled "wave one" - which will work fine for covering my all-in pledge but may miss those minis I ordered extra copies of.

Having said all of that, Archon do seem to be offering us a very good deal and are so far delivering on it (albeit with scant communication). It's not what I signed up for but I'll reserve my opprobrium for ND and tip my hat to Archon based on my wave one experience.

That is at least heartening Steve thank for the update! Now I may have to take the plunge myself.

Wayfinders

Never got confirmation that they found my pledge (had to follow up and give them a different email), but I got a shipping notice that Zo! is on his way. Hopefully they just didn't get around to replying to the email.


I ordered also. I didn't see on the order where I could say I was part of the kickstarter. I purchased the Zo mini the Necrovite, and the 1/2 Elf Steward. I put it in the ordering notes I was part of the kickstarter. My kickstarter order of the phase-1 mini's arrived with the other mini's I purchased.

I received them in California on 11/13/19.

They do require assembly. The Necrovite in particular I found difficult to assemble. The 1/2 Elf Steward was fairly easy to assemble. I haven't touched the others yet.


For those that have received their minis from Archon how is the size compared to the original ND minis...assuming you received some from ND when they first started shipping them.
Thanks in advance.
