Grim Dark Compendium: Legio Custodes

Once the funding goal has been met we will begin work on the series.

FAQ

What is the Grim Dark Compendium: Legio Custodes?

GDC: Legio Custodes is a series of video painting tutorials, painted in a grim dark style, that  we hope to create for the Warhammer and Miniature Painting Community.  If we can meet our funding goal we will begin work on the series.

What is the funding goal and what does this budget cover?

The funding goal for the entire series will be 1500.00 USD. This goal will cover the Procuring, Assembly and Painting of each model. This will also cover the time we invest in the creation of all of the educational videos associated with the series.

What is included in a "series" ?

Each series will cover a troop, a vehicle (tank), a character (primarchs if available or the highest quality model available) and a dreadnought or walker/monster. Each of these types of units will be covered in there own separate video.

What will a single video include ?

Each video will be a full length step by step demonstration that explains the processes, applications, and products used in the painting of each miniature.

Will there be different levels of paint qualities demonstrated?

Yes, typically we will start with the vehicle. In this video will attempt to showcase all of the products and techniques that we will be using across the series. In the troop video we will demonstrate a "Standard" version of the process and in the character video we will show how to refine the information you have learned in the previous videos, taking the paint scheme and quality to the highest level.

How long will each funding campaign last?

Our campaigns are set to never expire. We are doing this due to how interest in particular armies can change frequently in the Warhammer community.

If a campaign takes too long to get funded can I get my money back?

Yes, we will be happy to refund pledges up until a campaign is fully funded.

What will you do with the models once completed?

All of the models will be given away as rewards for higher level support tiers. We will even paint additional models to fill out some of our rewards for supporting. These give away supporter slots will be limited.

Are you going to sell the videos on your website?

Yes, we will be selling the videos to the public for a reduced price. However, atleast one video (usually the troop video) will be free to download for the public and also posted up for free on YouTube.  Our usual pricing structure for a video is 9.99 USD but for videos that have been funded through our crowd funding campaigns within the Grim Dark Compendium, we will be charging 3.99 USD.

How will this work with your Patrons from Patreon?

Patrons will eventually get access to all the videos we create within the GDC though they may not be all at once or in any particular order.

How will the videos and PDFs be delivered?

Once we have completed all of the videos in a series you will receive a download link via Dropbox to download your rewards.

Will there be stretch goals?

Yes, we will be incorporating stretch goals very soon. We expect to include things like videos for Knights, basing or full blown Hard copy Publications that cover the process for each model used in the series.

Are there other ways I can help besides giving money?

Yes, if you would like to send New Models or Paint Materials this would be greatly appreciated. Rewards could be negotiated.

How can I contact you if I have questions?

Updates

Hello!

We wanted to insure everyone that backed the project that we are working to get the Legio Custodes GDC Series moving and on it's way to completion.
Here is the latest project update!
We received the models and have them in assembly as I post this update.
I also have Custodian Wardens test models here,  have rendered some paint tests  and plan to start the tutorials in the upcoming weeks.
Though I wanted to start them In October, as I had mentioned, unfortunately my schedule was already full for that month.  I honestly didn't expect for anything on the GDC to fund so quickly, so it caught me a little bit off guard when the Custodes entry funded in less that 24 hours .
I am working diligently to clear my schedule and start the series as soon as possible.
We had originally planned to release the Tutorials as a series, delivering the content in one package.  Considering the situation, I may release them one at a time. If you, as a supporter of the project, have any thoughts on how the videos should be released please feel free to comment in the comment section.
Thank you for your support.
