The Atlanta Business Chronicle wrote an article about our Castle Kickstarter!  

We were recognized by the local business paper here in Atlanta, That was a nice surprise!

The company had originally hoped to raise only $30,000. Its raising of $142,000 makes it one of the more highly funded Kickstarter campaigns from Georgia this year.

Thanks for the mention, we really do appreciate it!

Various layouts of Castle KickStarter pieces

The MBA Castle KickStarter  coming to an end here very soon.  I pulled out our castle pieces and made some fun layouts.  Not trying to use all of the pieces this time, but trying to make some interesting layouts.  This is what I came up with and hope to see yours when your KickStarter pieces arrive.

Thanks again to Eric at Break from Reality Games for the Grip Matt.  I like this grass printed one.  Just does need to be a bit larger for a castle layout.

2 1/2 Days left!! MBA Castle Kickstarter coming to a close with a bang!

Only 2 1/2 days left to get in on the big success story of the Miniature Building Authority Castle Kickstarter project. We have already broken our initial goal by four times, and have some great awards already in place for our premium backers. Yesterday we broke the $120,000 stretch goal. Now each premium and super premium backers will each get the laundry maiden figure with tub and a fighting dummy to help train your knights. (Super Premium backers we will paint the fighting dummy for you) Also, the kitchen has been unlocked.

We have also added a new Stretch Goal of $130,000. When this goal is met each premium backer and super premium backer will get the Lady and Hand Maiden figure set (unpainted) ($12.95 value) and a 2nd Archery Target and a 2nd Fighting Dummy (unpainted for premium backers and painted for super premium backers).

…and finally a sneak peak at the $140,000 Stretch Goal. The blacksmith lean to. This great looking piece will look fantastic in your layout. Each premium and super premium backer will receive one kit. (Super premium backers will be painted) ($24.95 value)

Thanks for everyones support making this a huge success.

Final 10 days! Let’s ratchet it up!

We want to give you, the backers, more options. So first, we are creating a super premium backer. Any backer who spends more than $1,000 on this Kickstarter project will get all Archery Targets, Fighting Dummies, Castle Wells, and Lean To’s painted as part of your stretch goals. That’s right we have found a source and are having them painted. (Note: the lean to’s will not be glued together. This is so that we can ship them flat. It will take 2 minutes to glue them together, but they will be painted)

Premium backers can upgrade their Archery Targets, Fighting Dummies, Castle Wells, and Lean To’s to painted ones for a small fee (Archery Targets/Fighting Dummies $3.50 additional fee per piece and $4.50 for the Wells, and Lean Tos painted per piece). All backers can add painted ones to their pledge by adding the cost of the individual piece and the $3.50 or $4.50 painting fees to their pledge levels.

Additionally, we are unlocking three new pieces that are now available as add-ons. First is the re-issue of the Corner Turret House. This is a great piece that has been out of production for around 3 years. Additionally we are unlocking the Dungeon and the Torture Chamber Equipment add-ons. So we have lots of great news for everyone. Thank you again to all of our backers. We appreciate you and thank you for the feedback.

Sincerely, Kirk, Claudia, Jim, and Parry

$100,000 broken on second day!!!

Thank you backers. You keep breaking new stretch goals and make this a very exciting time for you and we here at MBA. All premium backers just earned the Animal Lean To Pen. This is an awesome little detail kit that will be a great addition to your castle. You also unlocked the 135 Degree Towers. These are one of my personal favorites in the new series.

Looking forward to seeing some great designs with these in your layouts.

Here is a review of all the stretch goal goodies the premium level customers are getting as part of their pledges.
