Hell on Earth Miniature Mega-Release Kickstarter in Its Final Hours!

Wormling Green for Studio 2 Publishing's Hell on Earth Miniature Mega-Release KickstarterStudio 2 Publishing’s Hell on Earth Miniature Mega-Release Kickstarter will be wrapping up soon. In fact, if you’re not a timely reader of the Tuesday web page update, it may already be too late!

With a dozen or more stretch goals met and funding over 1,000%, I’d have to say their campaign has been pretty successful. They’ve also introduced a dizzying array of additional materials, from backer-selected minis to Savage Worlds Miniatures Transporters to soundtracks, and I really don’t know that they’re done rolling out new material!

Don’t let this one slip by you. Be sure to check out the Hell on Earth Miniature Mega-Release Kickstarter before it’s gone. The Grandmaster Traveling Warband pledge level now has so many bonus rewards that it’s worth over twice its price and comes with free U.S.  shipping (with worldwide shipping available at astonishingly low rates).


Hell on Earth Minis Kickstarter Now Includes a Savage Worlds Minis Transporter Option!

Savage Worlds Miniatures Transporter from Studio 2 Publishing’s Hell On Earth Miniature Mega-Release KickstarterIt’s the last full week of Studio 2 Publishing’s Hell on Earth Miniature Mega-Release Kickstarter campaign, and they just keep uppin’ the ante. They’ve added new minis, new options, new combinations, and the really cool Savage Worlds Miniatures Transporter to their list of backer rewards.

The campaign is more than fully-funded now (over 800% of their $3,000 target), but you can still pack more minis into their initial release by helping them hit more stretch goals. Remember, getting the word out and recruiting your friends can get you more minis just as effectively as pledging more money.


Hellstromme Goes Green!

Hell on Earth Minis Kickstarter CampaignNo, Hellstromme’s not gone all environmentally conscious—but he is available as a preview sculpt of the new Hell on Earth Hellstromme miniature as part of Studio 2 Publishing’s Hell On Earth Miniature Mega-Release Kickstarter.

For those who weren’t aware, by the time of the Wasted West, Hellstromme had long since transplanted his brilliant mind into a robot body. The final incarnation of this mechanical marvel is extremely powerful and armed with an array of weapons. Good thing he’s…wait, that would be telling!

 Check out Studio 2 Publishing’s Hell On Earth Miniature Mega-Release Kickstarter for the opportunity to get this exclusive one-of-a-kind miniature!

Kickstarter for Hell on Earth Minis Marches On!

Studio 2 Publihsing Hell on Earth Minis KickstarterIf you’ve not checked out Studio 2 Publishing’s Kickstarter for Hell on Earth Miniatures, you probably ought to. If you have, be sure to follow the updates! That’s where we get our news and preview pictures—why wait for us?

At less than 25% through their schedules, they’ve hit over 400% of their funding goal—and they’re not just sitting still! They’ve added eight new pledge levels, options for picking up additional Stretch Goal minis at discounts, and preview banners for seven additional Stretch Goal minis.

They’ve even lowered the target for their Wormling goal by $5,000 in appreciation of everyone’s support and feedback. Seriously, who else is going to give you a five thousand dollar discount for feedbackSee what the hoopla’s about now!


Hell on Earth Miniature Kickstarter Goes Live!

Hell On Earth Reloaded Miniatures KickstarterNo, smartypants, the Kickstarter isn’t miniature—it’s a Kickstarter for Hell on Earth Miniatures!

Our friends at Studio 2 Publishing came up with a new idea for the Hell On Earth miniature set. With a blowout Kickstarter, the whole line of Hell on Earth minis could be released at the same time as the Hell on Earth printed rulebook instead of dribbling out a few a month afterwards! That’s right, at the same time you get your print copy of Hell on Earth Reloaded, you could also populate your gaming table with potentially dozens of denizens of the Wasted West in small scale!

If you’re one of those people who doesn’t play Hell On Earth (not that there’s anything wrong with that), check out the Kickstarter anyway. The minis are suitable for all sorts of genres, including modern, post-apocalypse, post-modern, and sci-fi! Even if that doesn’t get you, the illustrated audio drama should!

Everyone in the Wasted West needs a little bit of lead on their side to help keep off a bad case of the Glows. Support the Hell on Earth Minis Kickstarter today!


A Little Taste of Hell

Our good friends at Studio 2 Publishing had an idea for Hell On Earth semi-niggling at the back of their brains, gnawing around like the worm you shouldn’t drink from the glowing, green tequila.

Don’t worry your pretty little parasite-filled head about it, though, for all will be revealed next week. Well, all of the plans—hopefully not all of your brains.

But until then let’s kick off the conjecture and start the speculation with a hint of what’s to come.
