Hero Forge 2.0 Blows Through Kickstarter Goal in 20 Minutes

The new color customization options will arrive with at least 19 stretch goals as Hero Forge hit 2000% of its goal in minutes.

The age-old tabletop dilemma of finding the perfect mini for your Pathfinder or D&D character was tackled through the advent of 3D printing via sites like Hero Forge.

While the service has offered customization of various fantasy and sci-fi miniatures for years, a horde of additional options lies on the horizon with Hero Forge 2.0.

The next iteration of this popular mini customizing tool will add pre-colored figurines, as well as an option to have individual minis hand-painted based on your own color scheme.

The new color selections are coming via a crowdfunding campaign, which immediately blew past the original funding goal of $42,000, hitting 2000% of its goal in less than an hour.  As of this writing, the Kickstarter campaign sits at $1.2 million.

That amount has already unlocked 19 stretch goals, including a portrait studio, glass effects, earrings, new magic items, makeup, and other options for customizing minis like tattoos, decals, and clothing patterns. The next stretch goal features tights and masks for superhero-themed units.

Are you planning on funding the campaign, and what customized mini are you going to build? Sound off in the comments below!
