    DG Games Dark rituals

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1900818244/dark-rituals-malleus-maleficarum?ref=discovery About As the many planes of existence turn and churn, occasionally worlds come into alignment. For brief moments in the multiverse’s timescale, these Conjunctions allow objects to slip from one world to another, sometimes unnoticed, sometimes causing chaos. Dark Rituals: Malleus Maleficarum is the next exciting miniatures based game from DG Games Entertainment. Dark Rituals is an asymmetric “One vs Many” game for 2 to 5 players, with a solo mode. A small band of Heroes defends villagers from a coven of Witches. One player, the Witch Master, controls the Legion of Darkness. With two players, the second player plays the Heroes in a strictly competitive game and up to three more players may join in, each taking a Hero to help battle the Witch Master. A solo mode is also available, where the Witch Master battles game-controlled Heroes. You can choose between two Early Bird Pledges in the first 48 hours of this project. Both pledges contain an Early Bird bonus, a playable KS Exclusive Hero, the Swordsman. After the EB period, backers will be able to get The Swordsman as a $10 Add-On. The Swordsman will be available as a $10 Add-On after the 48 Hour Early Bird period expires.
  3. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915262526/fred-perrys-gold-digger-colorized-part-4/description About Help us colorize the original Black and White Gold Digger series by creator Fred Perry. If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators. You may have seen some of our other successful and fulfilled campaigns. Over the years, we have published a number of series. Prominent among these is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger. One of our most frequently received fan requests over the years is, "When can I see the original black-and-white series of Gold Digger in color?" Getting a book colored is not an easy proposition due to the cost and time involved, and both of those commodities are scarce in the independent publishing world. But with Kickstarter, it is now possible to achieve that goal. We experimented with a previous Kickstarter (Gold Brick 7), and due to its success, we were able to color the first two issues of the black-and-white series. So back in June of 2016, we ran the first part of this campaign, and we were able to COLORIZE 5 ISSUES. With such encouraging response, we made successive colorizing campaigns. Out of the 50 black-and-white issues, a total of 15 have been colorized thus far. Here is a small sample of what's been done. Below are original and colored pages from Gold Digger #6, colorized thanks to one of our previous Kickstarters. What we would like to do is to continue this process with issue #16 of the series, since the first 15 issues are already funded. Here is a PDF link for Gold Digger #16... http://antarcticpresslibrary.com/gdbw/gdbw16.pdf The money collected will go to paying the colorist to perform the task of coloring. And for each $1200 we collect beyond the first, we will color the next issue. For instance, if we collect a total of $2400 with this campaign, we will then proceed to color issue #14; if we collect at least $3600, we'll have issue #15 colored, and so forth and so on. Supporters will receive the PDFs of each completed issue that is colored, and those in the upper pledge tiers will also get the issues that have already been colorized. Wouldn't you like to see the many great Gold Digger moments in color? Theo versus the Lich King, the first appearance of the Leprechaun mecha, Ace's 747 battle against Dark Bird, Gina and Penny's wedgie war, the first appearance of Ryan, and the epic Time Warp saga are but a few of stories that can be eventually colorized. How we budget the money... $1200 Goal $120 Kickstarter Fees (Kickstarter takes 10% for various fees) $150 for Fred...for all his hard work $130 Administration...to manage and send the PDF's to all the supporters $800 for our esteemed colorists...each issues is from 24 to 30 pages long, so that comes to about $25 to $30 per page for them.

    Black 3.0

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/culturehustle/the-blackest-black-paint-in-the-world-black-30?ref=ksr_email_backer_backer_confirmation_v2 The blackest black paint available. Absorbs 98-99% of light. Black 3.0 is a super special acrylic paint. We have spent nearly 2 years tweaking its formulation to create a black that absorbs between 98 and 99% of visible light! Quite simply we've created the blackest black acrylic paint. Black 3.0 brush applied to sculpture Last November we shared a beta batch of Black 3.0 with 1000 artists around the world for feedback and thoughts. We've now taken that information and reformulated it to be the best black we could possibly make. All the photos and video content on this page are created with the final formulation of Black 3.0 from the UK factory that are producing it for us, we are excited to be playing with it and feel like it's perfect!We need your help so that we can pay the paint factory to produce their minimum order quantity of our recipe so we can share our creation with everyone!
  5. Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left.... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy. I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all. Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun. I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues. £10 Road Builder £30 Asteroid Miner £40 Planet Settler

  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/822163699/noresmian-nights-from-bruegelburg-to-the-ends-of-t?ref=discovery I've backed three of their Kickstarters before and have always been very satisfied. Characterful minis and fast delivery. His Excellency, the Grand Vizier (NOR-01) The most trusted confidant of His Highness, the Grand Vizier is the chief courtier and administrator of the highest affairs of state. His Highness, the Khan-Sultan of Noresmi (NOR-02) Ruler of the City and the surrounding lands of many leagues, the current Khan-Sultan hails from a long line of rulers, some weak, some strong, some cunning, some naïve. Having traveled with the Grand Caravans in his youth, he is determined to maintain and expand Noresmi’s standing, yet keeps court in the lavish style expected in this part of the world. The Khan-Sultan’s Wife and the Royal Chancellor (NOR-03) From a marriage of reason to cement an alliance with a neighbouring state grew respect and love – these days, the Khan-Sultan’s wife takes great interest in her husband’s duties and advises him as the need arises. Rumour has it that the rode out as a Warrior-Princess, but who would dare to ask her about it? Supervising the Khan-Sultan’s treasuries, the Royal Chancellor is traditionally appointed from the most successful and proven members of the trader aristocracy. Wise Men of the East (NOR-04) Knowledge is not a commodity as easily traded as more tangible goods, but still in high demand. The Khan-Sultan, following the example of his great-grandfather, expanded his court by maintaining an academy of sages to collect the wisdom of the world. Merchants of Noresmi (NOR-05) When it comes to preparing a Grand Caravan, the Khan-Sultan summons the foremost merchants of the city, as well as the most-renowned travellers to plan out this great venture. But with trade being such an important part of Noresmian daily life, one will very likely meet those notables on the markets, at their trade houses, remarkably comparable to the Kontors of Bruegelburg. Advisors to the Court (NOR-06) As merchants grow in age and esteem, it is customary to hand over the daily running of business to their successors. The most esteemed among them may find themselves appointed Advisor to the Court, as the Khan-Sultans seek to put their knowledge and experience to good use (and keep an eye on those of great ambition). Courtier of the Hillfolk and Servant (NOR-07) In ages past, when the Dwarfs were more adventurous, some clans set out to claim new lands in the East. They maintained some of their ancestral reclusiveness, but some dwell in the city of Noresmi itself, working as blacksmiths and goldsmiths, where their prodigal skill find great acclaim and may even lead to a place on the Khan-Sultan’s council. The Cuisinier Royal (NOR-08) Noresmian cuisine is known for its exotic combination of foods, spices and specialties from all over the world. Only the most skilled and trusted cooks find themselves appointed to the court kitchens, and closely watched due to their sensitive position. Male Servants (NOR-09) The Khan-Sultan’s palace guard maintains a continuous presence on the streets of the city. Still, there are some areas where only the shrewdest and toughest servants are sent to conduct their masters’ business. The Tax Collectors (NOR-10) In order to pay for his court, but also to maintain roads, bridges and other public institutions, the Khan-Sultan levies various taxes and duties. Guarded by trusted palace guards, Tax Collectors are a common sight during market days and at the time of every third moon. Streetfolk (NOR-11) Despite the strange smells, uncommon sights and sounds, life in the city is broadly similar to that in Bruegelburg. On market days, one will meet people from all walks of life. Palace Guards (NOR-12) Palace Guards are hand-picked from veterans of the standing army. It is a posting of high repute, and many a guardsman retired to become chief bodyguard to powerful merchants favoured by the Khan-Sultan. Master of the Armies with Herald (NOR-13) One of the most trusted positions on the Khan-Sultan’s court, the Master of the Armies is the chief commander of the palace guard and the small standing army maintained to keep peace along the trade routes.

This rug has been known to quickly wrap around adventurers strangling them to an untimely death. It is a favorite of merchants who want a capable self protection system to defend their stores that is less... direct than a friendly orc. Classic Smothering Rugs are obedient to their owners and will defend the shop until the last thread. Classic Smothering Rug Magic Flying Carpet This friendly carpet has been known to help adventurers by carrying them and their heavy loot through dungeons and grasslands. The Magic Flying Carpet often binds itself to one particular party member who has traveled the most in their life quests. These carpets can also be used to gain sight and height over other enemies for adventurers with ranged weapons. Magic Flying Carpet Corthon's Color Changing Carpet Corthon's Color Changing Carpet comes in a variety of colors to help fit his magic's cantankerous mood. Corthon was the sorcerer brother of the textile merchant Celia. Celia asked Corthon to enchant her carpet inventory. Corthon created a carpet that always in flux, changing colors rapidly until touched by a nonmagical creature at which point the color was permanent.

Javeere was the last of the most dangerous dire jungle tigers. He lived his live quietly in the forest unrivaled in power. His reputation grew until the evil orc Muurg heard of his existence. Muurg was a terrifying and evil poacher who collected rare pelts from his victims. Muurg sent 100 of his best men and laid an intricate trap to ensnare Javeere the Jungle Tiger. Caged and bound, Javeere was brought to Muurg's lair as a trophy. In the cell next to his was a druid Antharc weakened by his years of imprisonment. As his last dying breath, he bound the spirit of Javeere with his fur forever. When Muurg slaughtered Javeere the next night, his ego full, he walked on Javeere. Immediately the rug came to life ensnaring his captor and tearing him into pieces. Now, Javeere is bound forever to his rug, the last flickering memory of his kind. Javeere seeks to destroy all evil in the world and will bind himself to good adventurers if their cause is just. Javeere Jungle Tiger Rug Si's Summoner Rug Those who attempt the art of summoning dragons spend hours on their knees in desperate focus.

    The Art of Privateer Press 1/14

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/privateerpress/the-art-of-privateer-press?ref=discovery Privateer Press was founded by artists who shared a great love for fantasy and science-fiction artwork. The worlds they created and the games that grew out of them have always been driven by a passion for visual creation. The very first book Privateer published—Book I of the Witchfire Trilogy: The Longest Night—received the EN World gold awards for Best Interior and Best Cover artwork for an RPG product for the year it was released, establishing the company as visionary creative studio. Nearly 20 years and literally thousands of illustrations later, the images that have adorned the games and novels of Privateer Press will finally be collected into a long-anticipated, beautiful art book, sure to become a favored gem in any art lover’s library. Art books, however, are not a product that has traditionally been a staple offering of game distributors and game stores, which is a big part of the reason Privateer has not previously green-lit this project. As an art book is an expensive undertaking, we have been cautious about producing something unlikely to receive a reception through our traditional distribution channels and that might fail to justify its expense and effort. For this reason, we will be taking this project to Kickstarter on January 14th, which will allow us to tailor the size and scope of the book, as well as its print run, to the precise demands of the audience who has long desired it. What’s Going to Be in the Book? The Art of Privateer Press will be a 9˝ x 11 7/8˝ hardback book (dimensions of final may vary), printed in portrait orientation on 80# paper with a spot-varnish finish on the cover. A foreword penned by Privateer’s founding owner and Chief Creative Officer Matt Wilson will detail Privateer’s history and its approach to visual creation. Between the foreword and the final dedication will be wall-to-wall illustrations featuring the best images from all of Privateer’s worlds and games, including the Iron Kingdoms, WARMACHINE, HORDES, Monsterpocalypse, LEVEL 7, Skull Island eXpeditions fiction, and more. The Art of Privateer Press will include hundreds of images from acclaimed artists such as Andrea Uderzo, Susan Luo, Svetlin Velinov, Johan Grenier, Néstor Ossandón, and many, many other talented individuals who have contributed to Privateer’s artwork over the years. The book will be a minimum of 148 pages in length, but how big it can get will only be up to our backers…and the limits of physical reality. To push those limits, though, we’re creating some exciting rewards, including physical sketchbooks, supplementary digital art books, and a special preview model featuring a character who has been part of the Iron Kingdoms since nearly the beginning… As you may already know, Riot Quest is an upcoming miniatures game set in the Iron Kingdoms that we’ll share a lot more about next year, but that’s a story for another update. However, we wanted to offer something new to generate excitement for The Art of Privateer Press, and we determined that the Iron Maiden character, affectionately known as “J.A.I.M.s” in the upcoming Riot Quest, was a perfect fit. The first rendition of the Iron Maiden originally appeared in the Monsternomicon way back in 2002. As you can see from the original pen & ink artwork, there was just no way she was ever going to be producible as a miniature, not with all those blades and talons, which is why she’s not made it to the tabletop yet. So, she was reinterpreted for Riot Quest in a fashion that could, in fact, be made into a miniature. And while Riot Quest will be a stand-alone game, all of the miniatures in it will be compatible with WARMACHINE and HORDES, so anyone preordering The Art of Privateer Press with the Iron Maiden miniature will be able to put her on the tabletop long before she’s released next year. Another reason we wanted to include a miniature as part of the promotion for this art book is because frankly we know waiting months for something to show up sucks, and we really wanted to offer something you could put your hands on sooner rather than later. So, the Iron Maiden miniature will be shipped by the beginning of May, and she will not be available in any other fashion until fall of 2019. We hope that you will be as excited to get your hands on The Art of Privateer Press as we are and that J.A.I.M.s and our other planned rewards will offer a bit of extra incentive to back this project. The campaign will launch on Kickstarter on January 14th, 2019, and will run through January 24th, 2019, with an expected delivery of fall 2019. We know this book is long overdue, but the wait won’t be much longer… Happy Holidays!
