Spinespur Kickstarter Contest!

Thug blister pack (4 models)
     Okay ladies and gents, time for our first official Contest! For this one, we've teamed up with Bob Mervine of Comfy Chair Games to bring you an awesome opportunity- 8 painted thugs and 2 big characters!!!









Cerebeast
     You heard right! To help support the kickstarter in it's final two weeks, I will be painting up 2 full blisters of thugs, the Cerebeast, and the Grave Golem! That's a painted two-player game right there! Over $70 worth of models, and all painted up nicely to boot! Here's all you need to do to qualify for the contest:


  1. Pledge your support of the Kickstarter in an amount of at least $65.
  2. Make a post on this thread saying what name you pledged under in the Kickstarter. (This will allow Bob to verify all the entries maintained a minimum $65 pledge in the Kickstarter.)


     Sound simple? That's because it is!!! 

Grave Golem & Caretaker
     Once the kickstarter is finished, we will draw the lucky winner and announce it here on the LXG Blog. If you've already backed the kickstarter for a pledge higher than $65, you're halfway there- comment below to let us know who you are! If you have a pledge of under $65, all you need to do is bump it up. Remember, if the Kickstarter hits the $13K mark that pledge also gets you a free model! So let's get some pledges shuffled up, and make this thing happen!

    1. Just doing our part. Keep an eye out for followup articles, I'm going to be asking for painting "suggestions" for them. Check out http://lxg-blog.blogspot.com/2013/03/model-review-spinspur-thugs-revisited.html for an idea of what the painted figs will be in the quality range of.

    1. Bob put up the models, we're just putting up the brush time. If it gets a few more people pledging or bumping up to the $65 mark, it's good for everybody!

    This is a great idea, well done and thanks to both Bob M and yourself. I hope it draws a few more pledges in, Spinespur really deserves to succeed.

    1. That's what I was hoping for- getting a few more pledgers in, a few bumped up to $65, and a more publicity for the game.

      Good for Bob and Comfy- more money in the door.
      Good for LXG- more readers.
      Good for every pledger- more pledgers means more likely to get games in.

      Everyone wins.

    I am really eager to get a hold of the minis; it's not often that someone puts out something truly different.

  17. I've successfully funded a small independent game using kickstarter, It is such a great tool for people who don't have the ability to secure financing in the traditional way. Overall it has been a great help in the product development process.
