RAFM Call of Cthulhu Miniatures will be launching an Indiegogo campaign to fund… well… some Call of Cthulhu miniatures.

From the announcement:

Silver Fox Productions Inc. will launch their new fundraising program for RAFM Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition miniatures. The program will start on Thursday, July 11 and run until August 9, 2013.

RAFM Call of Cthulhu Miniatures line provides gamers with pieces to bring life to Chaosium’s classic roleplaying game of Lovecraftian horror, in which ordinary people are confronted by the terrifying and alien forces of the Cthulhu Mythos. Rafm Call of Cthulhu miniatures are had sculpted white metal miniatures which can be painted or used to represent characters and monsters duting game play. This bestselling line has won many game-industry awards and supports the Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition Chaosium Kickstarter.

This fund raising project aims to build a new edition of this classic horror miniature line and replace up to 85 miniatures in one project. Could you please pass this information along to your subscribers?
RAFM Company Inc, began producing rules and then miniatures for the gaming industry in 1979. RAFM Call of Cthulhu miniatures has probably been our most successful line. Envisioned and sculpted by Bob Murch for the Call of Cthulhu RPG by Chaosium Inc. the figures have transcended the industry and been reissued by many companies. None compare with the lasting tradition of the line. All miniatures are produced for Chaosium’s Call of Cthulhu Role-playing Game and continue to be an official licensed product for the Call of Cthulhu Role-playing Game TM Seventh Edition.

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    This is sad for me. On one hand, I love RAFM miniatures and have always wanted to see them expand their product line. On the other hand, I am sooo sick of Cthulhu merchandise because of all of their competitors flooding the market. At this point, I am surprised there aren’t Cthulhus with Cthulhus stamped on them.

    • Give it another month…
      I will be delighted when someone starts up a fried calamari chain and slaps on the cthulhu name. “Get your deep fried ones here!”

    RAFMs were some of my earliest minis and I have a soft spot for em.
    I’m bummed it’s Indigogo and not Kickstarter.

    • Bewulf

      I’m bummed because it is flexible funding (loosing a lot of potential backers), because the available pledges are limited and only add up to less than $160k but stretch goals are posted up to $200k (over $40k with shipping and R’yleh Disk add-ons?), because there is very little actual info about the minis in the written text (no scale given and the material is only mentioned in the question about shipping?) … well, to sum it up, I’m bummed because there are so many things to be bummed about.

        We will add more perks to cover the difference at a higher price point as per Cthulhu Wars, hehee. Scale questions are answered here http://rafm.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=588
        We are a miniature company, we have been for 37 years. We produce miniatures. You will get your product.

          I would trust them to fulfill all orders and not be shady. It’s RAFM for crying out loud, not that woman who has started up and canceled three soapstone dice KS projects. The only thing I wouldn’t trust RAFM to do is not kick ass.

          Personally I have no doubts about that. But crowdfunding is about convincing the crowd, mostly people who do not know you, to give you money. And that is the point I was trying to make: If I would not know RAFM/Silver Fox I probably would not give this project my money.

          I do hope that this project will be successful, I am merely disappointed because I feel it could have benfitted greatly from better pre-planing. I applaud that there has been an update so quickly that addresses the issues brought up, it just would have been better if that update had not been necessary.

          Again best of luck of luck, I have already referred a friend who is both into RAFM minis and Cthulhu to the project. I will be watching interestingly to see how far this will go.
