    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    Gorgeous looking minis in the add-on. The update has closeups of several renders.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    It's an interesting looking game, very different from the previous offerings from Mythic Games (or Monolith). I like the look of the virtues: They look pretty large: There are still a few hours to jump in on an early bird. It is the core game plus an expansion campaign that comes with a bunch of cards and a single mini:
  3. I just got my stuff today as well. One of those rarities, a kickstarter fulfilling on time. Athena looks great, and her owl is amazing. She is a bit larger than the other minis, as befitting a Goddess. The owl is nicely made, I didn't use anything to hold it in place, it balanced well on it's own on the flying stand and separate base. I also added a set of pillars, as you can see they are quite tall, I didn't want to zoom any further out or I would lose too much detail on the other minis. I got a pack of translucent snakes and the set of resin hoplites, they are surprisingly dark, but look quite good. There is a reaper guy on the end for scale. A close up on the snake and hoplite. Still a bit hard to see, but the detail is good. Somehow a sleestak grabbed a machine gun and snuck into my box (I'm guessing it was a bonus freebee to show their other lines). I laid a pillar on it's side to show proper size. The schnauzer was a freebee, then one from the archer, spear and sword sets I picked up. There were a few shield options, I picked the assorted packs. Unpainted the minis look topless, they have belly button and nipples on them. Only the raised edge across the chests and skirts make it obvious they are armoured. Of course painting them would make it clear. I picked up the medusa as well. She's a beauty, but needs some assembly. There is some flash, but not any abnormal amounts and it looks easy to clean. Overall, a very good ks experience. Nice minis, good prices, and quick delivery.

    Legends of Signum

    I'm curious how many backers even noticed. I sometimes back a ks, and unless it's active here, only really notice when there is an update. I do check backed projects every couple weeks around payday just to make sure there are no forgotten surprises, but otherwise depend heavily on project updates. This was a little different for me in that I joined the FB page for the early bird option though. They have shared some pics on the fb page while this thread was locked. Nice looking archer wip: And a painted version of the crouching wulfen, I think she looks even better painted, I thought she looked a bit misshapen in the original render: And a mysterious* WIP: *Kidding, it's totally another wulfen.

    Feral Elves by Westfalia

    Or they are feral halflings that got into a little too much ent-draught.

    RE-LOAD by Archon Studio

    I got this and Zombicide Friday, so I combined some pics. They are really creative with the mounts. Delwen and Braith are riding some sort of dirigible. Thais seems to be partially inside her bull mount, though it doesn't really seem to be a construct. Queen Anara is mounted atop a toothy-looking squid creature. Marquess rides a ferocious goat, whilst Skorus and Glop appear to be a dwarf riding a flying toad! They all look amazing, with the same level of detail and fantastic bases found on the original Load project. And those are just the regular mounted characters, there are several mounted epic minis. The epic winged-centaur woman Seela is keeping company with some Zombicide and a Reaper mini. Sadly the pic is blurry, her details are amazing. They weren't without problems though. Four minis had the oily surface that sometimes comes with resin minis. I have them soaking right now to see if it will come off. Also, a couple minis have broken parts. I can glue them back on, so not a big deal, but Epic Grok is missing a horn. On the bright side they do seem to have good customer service so if I can't get the oily substance off I'll ask for some replacements. Otherwise a minotaur missing a horn just adds some character. Oddly, all the issues were on the epic side of things, I wonder if they were rushing a bit to fulfill the ks and let qa slide.

    Zombicide: Green Horde

    I had a good Friday, this and Re-Load arrived, so tons of great minis. I took some pics. The dragon looks epic, like an undead jabberwock inspired creature. Freddie Mercury and Vashara from Load are ready to take it on though. Next is a very blurry :P demigorgon and a massive minotaur next to the epic winged centaur Seera from Load and a Reaper dude for scale. Here we have a Load squad facing off with the X-Men and Solomon Kane. My money is on the Zombicide team, as they brought the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog along as backup.
  8. She turned out great. She lost some of the aesthetic of the wonderful concept art, but actually looks more like a queen in hell as a result. The only disappointment for me is she's no longer a lefty. It's odd that the sheathes are still where they are though. I can't imagine how her right hand could draw that sword, and her left couldn't easily draw that dagger. Both sheathes should be on her left hip if she's a righty.

    Skull Tales: Full Sail!

    This is an interesting looking project. It's apparently a second edition of a well reviewed game on BGG (8.1 rating). The first edition raised $83k with 909 backers, this one has $446k and 3848 backers with 4 days to go, which seems like a good sign. It's called a semi-cooperative game for 1-5 players, though there is a pvp mode listed under unlocked stretch goals. The game has three phases, a sea voyage phase that looks like a resource management mini game, a exploration phase that looks to play similar to D&D board games like Wrath of Ashardalon and Castle Ravenloft, and a port phase for upgrading and getting missions. There aren't a lot of ks exclusives, but the war dog looks great: And some add ons, a set of interesting sea miniatures to replace game tokens: Can't say I've ever seen a sperm whale mini before, though he's probably minnow sized next to most tabletop minis. And the dice tower looks good, with an awesome demo video:

    Skull Tales: Full Sail!

    Any kickstarter is a risk, but I don't think this one has too much for the pledge. The main pledge is $106, it has over 100 minis, but a quick scan shows there are only 37 unique models (the 50+ includes paid add-ons) and only one large mini. And it has raised over $500k. Companies like Cmon and Monolith (and Reaper for that matter) deliver many more (and a great many larger) for a similar price range. They also have very few ks exclusives, so they can take a lot to retail. Anyway, this just entered the last day, for anyone else still wondering about backing. Here are a couple of the last stretch goals (they decided to unlock all remaining stretch goals yesterday). Armoured Amazons: And the aforementioned large mini, the awesome looking Tarantula Anansi: Not a stretch goal, but The Darkclaws and Bootbiter are looking good:

    StoneHaven Adventurers 2018

    I backed everything before the giants. I do think the first two projects were the best, the later designs are still interesting (I even like the much maligned elves), but the flatness that has crept in to many minis has been disappointing. I skipped the giants mainly because they didn't really fit in with the giants I already have. Then came the Adventurers ks. First it was a point buy system, I am not a fan. I shouldn't need to do math to figure out what minis will cost. Then, they offered a 100 point bonus to backers of the Giants project, but nothing for backers of any of the previous kickstarters which caused even more ill will. They didn't even announce that project (nor this one for that matter) to backers of the previous projects. It might not have been intentional, but it seemed like they wanted a clean break and didn't want old backers returning. Look at those numbers, there are potentially 1000s of backers of earlier projects who don't even know this one exists.

    32mm Fantasy miniatures

    She looks great, check out those feet. I can't wait to see the rest of the sculpts.

    StoneHaven Adventurers 2018

    For sure the ferret is coming. He likes sculpting little critters, plus this is a quote from the project page: "Niviny Shimbler, the Female Half-Elf Witch, and Toader the Ferret has been added to the Skull Stabbers Adventuring Party"
  14. Stretch goals have been lackluster because they haven't been unlocking any. But they look good, right in line with what you'd expect based on the original designs that got people to jump on board. I think these add-ons were originally intended as stretch goals and I love the concept art for them: They also added mini only pledges after backers asked, so it's not like they were unresponsive. It is a mystery, I didn't see anything that would indicate the serious lack of progress. Confrontation and LOAD were the only other projects I've seen flatten like this and they had massive red flags (and LOAD even managed to fulfill). Even the language thing, plenty of projects recently have had the same potential problem without it unduly affecting backers (Mythic Battles for example).
  15. Exo Mankind Reborn (running now) has almost the exact same curve:

    Black Rose Wars

    That necrodragon looks amazing. I'm more excited for the Kitsune though:

    Legends of Signum

    That sounds even more fishy. When I first read about this and the possibility it was the Confrontation people, I thought they would be better served if they did this before their project ended, hoping people would flee this ks for theirs. But since it happened after theirs ended, they don't stand to gain as much. With the news the claim was placed a week before theirs ended, this seems like a much more likely scenario. I hope this whole thing gets sorted out without too much fuss. This could end up killing this kickstarter and company even if they have done nothing wrong. Lost backers, potential legal battles, a small company might not survive.
  18. Mumlak looks great, I hadn't even noticed the idol. I can't help but think Sir Forscale is safe though, that tusk will block the swing.

    Legends of Signum

    They posted a core box unboxing video which looks interesting. I'm guessing this means they won't have any trouble making the fulfillment date. It also explains why the initial funding goal was so low, it seems they have it ready to go. They also posted a short unboxing fails compilation that offered a couple views of a game in progress. The minis and terrain look amazing.

    Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

    Still waiting here as well. But I'm fine as long as they show up eventually.

    Black Rose Wars

    This is a preview link, the project goes live April 26. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lmstudio/244257038?ref=447949&token=a6d2a5f6&utm_source=LMSFBPage&utm_medium=cpm&utm_campaign=BRWPreviewKS This is by Ludus Magnus Studio. They kickstarted the Nova Aetas and Sine Tempore games previously. I backed Nova Aetas and was very happy with the minis and game. This game is set in the same game world/time (Italian Renaissance), but looks to be a completely different style of game. It looks like it has some very interesting mechanics and game pieces. It is a wizard dueling game, the kickstarter page says 2-4 players, but the Man vs. Meeple video mentions 2-6, so I'm guessing there will be a stretch goal or add-on at some point. Even though it is a dueling game the objective isn't killing the other mages but to collect victory points. I hope they release some actual gameplay videos, the review videos piqued my interest but I'm very curious to see how it actually plays.

    Court of the Dead - Mourner's Call 4/24

    I think there are some misconceptions here. Sideshow have been making these Court of the Dead statuettes for a while, with a whole line of supporting projects like comics, puzzles, art books etc. They are just now branching into a board game based on their IP. The minis for the game seem to range from the size of the smaller Gods from Mythic Battles Pantheon to a more common tabletop scale. If you go to the sideshowtoy web page they have a link to a lot of Court of the Dead info. I found a teaser video that will likely be their kickstarter video: The first half is a lot of interesting fluff for the setting, but the second half of the video is gameplay with a good look at the figures. They are unpainted. I also found a first-look video by Man vs. Meeple that talks about gameplay and shows a few more figures plus a lot of game info. It does look like it might be an interesting game, if the price point isn't too bad I'll probably back. It looks like the game is made by ProjectRaygun who seem to be the actual game designers. I'm not familiar with them but they made the The Thing: Infection at Outpost 31 game which seems well received on BGG. I was doing a little more searching and I found a web site devoted to the game. It has a pdf of the rules amongst other things. It doesn't appear to be a commerce site so it should be okay to link: http://projectraygun.com/mourners-call/
  24. Last day for this. It's funded with several unlocked add-ons, and has some freebees for $50+ pledges: I think I have to back, where else will I get an amazon schnauzer?

    Dark Gate Games Vampire Hunters

    I got my order today. Minis look good, slightly harder plastic than bones, similar details. Some small flash and minor warping, typical for this type of mini. I backed at the slayer level with a couple addons. I picked up the Nyx crossover figure since I backed Middara. I also picked up Gugadeth because it looked like an interesting mini and I like mounted figures. The Reaper guy is for scale. This a random group of baddies from the core box. They all look good, but that first guy looks like he should be hunting down He-Man. They have a nice mix of different types of traditional and non-traditional vampire looks. Core box heroes. They all look pretty good, and there are several more heroes that came as stretch goals in a separate box. They look like they'd make a good team of vampire hunters, they remind me of the characters in the 1998 John Carpenter movie Vampires. Some of the stretch goal minis. A stack of crates and barrels, a huge demonic vampire, a great looking winged vampire, a rubble pile, rat swarm, and a ghostly spirit along with four more heroes. The big guy on the right has a flame thrower and a large tank on his back. The second looks like Abraham Lincoln, vampire hunter (a co-incidence I'm sure). The third is a good looking ranger with an eagle atop his bow, and the final is a female stabbing with the spiked (or staked) end of her axe. She has a nice action pose, the pic doesn't do her justice. Overall a great looking bunch of minis. Even if the game doesn't turn out great, they'll see plenty of use. And it's getting mostly positive reviews on BGG, so I'm hoping the game will be good.
