Man these are really awesome minis! They actually look like they're going adventuring. Kinda pricy though. I'll have to see how my funds look later before I can pledge.

If you go in at $280 it's $5.80 a miniature plus all the bonuses when they are hit. I think that is very reasonable. And there will be plenty of bonuses. Nicely compliments all the monster I will have arriving from Reaper in November ;)

Most affordable I've seen Otherworld, but I have heaps of adventurers, its their monsters I want and they remain too expensive for me.

They look very nice, but I note with immense frustration that there's not a single female character option available until one hits the $160 level pledge.

Agree with ObsidianCrane. The minis might (or probably) would turn out great, but I would MUCH rather have, say, a Drow II pack or any one of the other monsters from the original MM than adventurers....

My disappointment is that you have one selection of female miniatures, but two male. Also, I agree it's a bit pricey.

 

On the plus side, the stretch goals look nice. The free shipping world wide is a boon for those who live over seas, since they are based out of the UK that'd be me for a change. The henchmen/hirelings box set sounds very tempting.

 

Over all, I think I'll wait a bit and mull it over before I decide.

It is cool, but there is only really two sets of the minatures I like the look of and that is the final two...

I don't really want the two sets of the boys...

 

I guess I'll think about it, but will probably not do it just because of that factor.

I'm undecided at the moment, I really only like the fighter from greens shown and with current Kickstarters I really don't have the funds to put down a pledge. I'll keep an eye on this one.

I get most of my adventurers fix of minis through Reaper. Although it is a bit different that these aren't the typical heroic versions one usually sees, but more of the everyday grunt types... Although if one looks hard enough those can be found in Reapers catalogue too.

 

Some of the stretch goals are a little different that interest me, and it looks like they'll be using some familiar sculptors. However while I've backed several projects through Kickstarter, I find this funding site harder to navigate for info and site policy. I think I'll adopt a wait and see stand on it.

I like them but can't see myself buying in. I'm all-in for reaper at this point. And I agree with the concept that we have too many characters and not enough monsters. I suppose characters must sell much more since players and not DM's buy them.

While they are nice sculpts, I think I'll stick strictly with reaper. I really like the character designs better here.

nice enough sculpts...but quite pricey. And although I like the concept (dungeon-in-progress rather than Combatty McFightsomemore) of the character designs, the execution doesn't quite get there. And to be honest, my campaigns (YMMV!) need more talky-talk people...like Reaper's Dub Bullock, Hannah Blackruby, etc.

 

Like others, I am turned away by the lack of females in initial releases. And I'm not encouraged by the lack of concept art for the ones that will eventually happen.

 

The initial cleric has a jewel-encrusted cross...I have a hard time imagining a fat Catholic friar traipsing through a dungeon in a fantasy world that doesn't have Catholics. Seems poorly planned to make a mini unwelcomed by most campaign settings' pantheons.

 

The initial ranger is yet another Tanis Half-elven clone...especially after Darksword just released such a lovely series of Not-Dragonlance Minis, do we need another Tanis clone? At least it's not Drizzt.

 

Just because I want to sound like more of a pedant, I'll say "initial" one more time.

 

My money will stay with Patrick's Bombshell KS.

You can pledge at the level that gets you one set and email Richard to change it from Set 1(Male Humans) to Set 3 . If you read the comments he's already told others that won't be a problem.

 

I'm in for Level 7. It's the Henchmen box I want the most. I hire a lot of hirelings when I play.

Y'know, if instead of everyday adventurers, Otherworld had planned this project around expanding the ideas expressed in some of their stretch goals and were giving us pack mules and treasure and supply laden carts and wagons as well as other assorted dungeon dressing... I would already be pledged up over this.

 

Even progressive versions of the same characters, from cannon fodder to veteran adventurer would have been more likely to capture my imagination, and money. :)

      BABES III September on Kickstarter
       
      by Bombshell Miniatures
       


       
      Bombshell Miniatures is very excited to announce Babes III coming to Kickstarter September 19th 2016. We have made special arrangements with artist Chris Walton to reproduce a selection of his fantastic designs for fantasy women. In addition to these, we have several existing designs in the Bombshell archives that may also be produced if we exceed our funding goal. Sculpts are in the works now and over the next several weeks we will be posting progress pictures of them. Join our Facebook Group or sign up on our mailing list for all of the updates leading up to the launch.

      Hey everyone,
       
      I just wanted to let you know that we have a new Kickstarter project beginning on the 26th of December... we're looking to fund some more anthro animal miniatures, and a terrain set... and we're doing it a little differently this time, as we are only going to be live for 24 hours!
       
      Here's a link to the KS video if you want to hear me and Jo randomly waffling at a camera, and below that are a few pics of the type of thing we're hoping to fund...

      I backed TAGs last KS for their Dwarves which went nice and smoothly and has delivered to everybody before the due day (last few shipments just going out but they'll be in peoples hands before June which was the target) 
      The minis were well cast and nice and characterful
       
      so if you need some Halfling chicken riders (or just some riding chickens) or some of their existing Halfling militia on foot which can also be selected as a reward get your pledging card out and jump in

      Guillotine Games has announced Zombicide: Black Plague. This new stand-alone Zombicide game brings the zombie-killing to a new, fantastic world. Gone are the malls, hospitals, and prisons. Gone are the molotov cocktails, machine guns, and chainsaws. Gone are the riot shields and tactical vests. Instead, players will use short swords, chainmail, and powerful spells in order to stem the growing tide of the zombie apocalypse as they invade a fantasy world.
      The game uses the same mechanics as previous Zombicide sets, but reworked to fit the new setting. With new scenarios, equipment (including powerful artifacts), characters (such as righteous paladins, stalwart dwarves, and powerful magicians), and location tiles (from mysterious vaults to village streets and everything in-between), it’s a whole new take on the original. There’s also new foes to vanquish! This time, there’s powerful Necromancers roaming the board who can add to the hordes ravaging the land. They’re sneaky, though, and it will take all of your cunning to hunt them down.
