Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

Recommended Posts

I was super excited about this one but seeing the teasers I may sit it out. None of these look to be my type of minis...

 

More money for when the chubby chicks hit the Hasslefree store lol.

Ok people, I am pretty savagely working to make it possible to go live on Sunday, we'll be putting out a newsletter before then too, to warn people (possibly tomorrow, possibly Saturday).

This is the second of our miniatures, Niska, the archer. You've seen a couple of the images before but the 'pin-up' full art is pretty special I think you'll agree.

Both Niska and Erryn (the bard) will be in the initial 4 characters available.

All miniatures will be available separately and in both metal and as resin masters. There'll also be some limited availability signed art cards as add-ons (Signed by Matt, Kev and even me if you give a crap, or just Matt if you're an art collector and don't want our signatures messing with it :D).

I like Kev's work thus far, but Dixon doesn't light me on fire. It's not bad, but I find the concepts pretty generic and the art pretty plain.

 

*fixes monocle*

Hmm I may have to sell some more minis from my collection to raise some much needed cash for two kickstarters here... this one and BB 3...

Patrick Keith used Matt Dixon's art as concepts for several of the miniatures in his Bombshell Babes Kickstarter and they came out quite nice. I'd think that Kev's would as well.

Starting on my B day?

I'm in...

 

Starting the day after mine.

 

After the last few years with occassional mentions, hints and rumours that Hasslefree were going to run a kickstarter (some may remember that they were planning to run three but were waiting for the right time to launch the first one, then swapped the first two around so this was technically going to be the second one) it's finally happening. As a long time Hasslefree customer & fan I can honestly say I'm looking forwards to this one.

I have little worries about wee Kev's ability to spin gold out of putty, and I think I own all the Dixon-based Keith sculpts :)

 

It's just the art that doesn't do much for me.

Well have to keep a eye on this one. With RCon on the horizon & last month, spending cash will be tighter.

It's gonna mean some hard decisions lie ahead with Patrick's and Kev's kickstarters both running around the same time.

I know what you mean.

 

Does one go with Top Ramen, or live a little, spend the extra dime, and go with Maruchan?

      This is my version of Grond from Hasslefree Miniatures. I've had the figure for a while but never got around to him. I can't really tell why I picked him up now (might have been that I wanted something to try my Valejo steel color on), but after I started I had trouble putting him down. I'm really happy with how he turned out, and with very little resistance as well. I had trouble with the eyes. I would have preferred a "normal" straight ahead stare, but every time I filled the left eye it had him looking to his right. After three attempts with the same result I figured it was meant to be.

      This is by Bob Naismith, who has a long pedigree in figure design.
       
       I really like all of it, especially the hoverbikes. But the prices are steep. I might buy a couple of display pieces, wish I could afford an army.

      Skirmish game in the Kings of War setting.  There's a rules preview link in the kickstarter description.
       
      For new models there are two forces to choose from initially.  Big images in the Hidden Contents below.

      Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search
       
      From the Mantic Newsletter:
      "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.
       
      The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers."
       
      If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for.
      Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.
