Today we hit the $11,000 goal needed to unlock the Guppy infantry squad, and that funding figure continues to rise. Thanks to everyone supporting this campaign.
The master print for the Salamander came in a few days ago, you can find a picture of it on the kickstarter page.

We've decided to open up the Protectorate Wars backer free add-on deal to pre-orders also. So if you've backed or per-ordered The Protectorate Wars digital art book you will get a $3-$5 add-on for free when you pledge for a Salamander miniature.
Here's a link to the blog page where you can pre-order the digital book: therangersproject.blogspot.com…
And here you can find the Salamander campaign if you've yet to check it out: kck.st/1gJHvee

Thanks for reading and sticking with us.

*Update 02/08/12*
The Salamander kickstarter has now passed the $6000 mark and is closing on another stretch goal. On the horizon of stretch goals is an unlock for a 15mm soldier, but for that we need a zbrush sculpt. So I'm putting a call out here:

If you're a zbrush sculptor with experience modeling soldiers (preferably experience in small scale) AND have sent your sculpts through perfactory 3D printing (this is critical), we're looking for a single soldier design in 5 poses. If you're interested and can start work right away, send me a note. This is a paid job.

*Update 02/05/14*
We're pretty blown away guys. Within 14 hours the Salamander miniature was fully funded. Not even 2 days in and we've already passed 300% funding. 6 Stretch goals have been hit and a 7th is likely today, causing the Salamander Squad option to increase in value roughly 40%. All this in just the first 2 days of a 3 week campaign, it's exciting to see where this will go.
I'll be using my cut of the funds to cover the extended time I've decided to spend on The Protectorate Wars book, so it's great help.

Now in order for us to keep up with our success I need to start designing more mech parts. Come join my livestream and watch if you want: www.livestream.com/shimmypaint…
_______________

Chris Gotcher, my friend who has done most of the 3D modeling work and will be doing all of the physical production work, launched the Kickstarter page for the Salamander miniature today.

Check it out here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/1…

I've had a few of my designs turned into tabletop game miniatures before, but this is the first one from my Rangers project setting, it's also the largest and most complex.

Up for grabs is the default Salamander seen in the art I've been posting, from there you can add on an auto rifle, and if we hit stretch goals other add-on parts will become available.
Those that pledge for 3 Salamanders will get them at a discount and also receive 3 rifles. Every stretch goal we hit will score this pack an additional free add-on, so it's value will grow the more we fund.
Anyone who backed The Protectorate Wars digital art book that pledges for a Salamander mini will also get a free add-on. The first of many perks you supporters will get as I roll out new Rangers items.

Anyway, go check it out, share it with your friends who are into tabletop miniatures, and thanks in advance to all who join in the fun.
For those who missed the chance to back my book project during it's kickstarter campaign, I've set up a Rangers Project blog page which hosts a PayPal widget for pre-ordering.

Check it out here: therangersproject.blogspot.com…

Why pre-order rather than waiting for release day? All backers and pre-orders get exclusive production updates that include uncropped views of all completed artwork. It also helps continue funding production, as any extra funds can be used to bring in more help or cover unforeseen costs.
I also plan to give all digital book backers and pre-orders a discount on the printed edition when I get to that later, and maybe some other perks. No hard details on that though, as I haven't figured out printing costs yet or how to organize such rewards.

Anyway, have at it! Thanks to everyone who's been supporting the project. Feel free to share the page around to those who missed out on the kickstarter or may be interested.

So how is the Protectorate Wars Art Book coming?  I know you said it most likely will not hit its target release date but just wondering how things are going.
