We are looking at producing a small range of female figures for a fantasy forest tribe.

These have been designed via a computer, and will be cast in resin - this is a completely new venture for us, away from the standard 'greens'. Hence why only a small, initial range to see how the market takes to them.

The figures will be cast in resin, so far there are four command, five archers and four warriors.

All of the figures are different - there are a selection of figures above, and we will add more as time goes on.

All stretch goals will be added free to those who pledge the 'warband' and 'company' groups

Stretch Goals:

£1,000 - four spearwomen

£2,000 - chieftain riding unicorn

£3,000 - standard bearer riding unicorn 

This is just a taster, if the project proves successful, these will be amended and added to

He's pricing the minis way too low...   

 

Not backing this one until the Dragon from his earlier campaign arrives.

(New personal rule)

Must be very warm in that forest for them to be wearing so little clothes. Surprised they're not eaten alive by bugs.

The models seem a little "meh" to me.  Like something I'd look at on a vendor's table at a con and put back down afterwards. 

 

But the price does seem really low.  6$ for four figures in resin?  61$ for fifty-four ?

Yeah. That's the same he takes for the minis he's already selling on his website. 

I don't think he's really adding in labour costs, wastage or mishaps.

 

And since KS take a good chunk (10% or so) out of the money, he's actually worse off than selling direct.

I like the poses, but the faces are all completely expressionless.

The proportions seem a little off for humans. Many of them have noticeably short thighs and forearms. That would be okay for gnomes, but it look a little odd for human sized figures.

I like what I'm seeing - assuming that these are digital sculpts where the faces have not yet been finished. I also am wondering a bit about price and I have backed his Landsknecht KS which more or less just ended and so it's miles away from being delivered ... not sure I'll stay in.

Frankly, I'd feel a bit better about it if he took £2 for each mini rather than £1.2 as he does now.

It'd give him quite a bit more leeway without pushing the unit price up to where people would hesitate to buy them.

(It'd also make it possible for him to invest in more and better equipment )

ditto. Also, I gets this kind of creepy feel off of them. Not sure why. Is it just me or are the proportions a bit off?

      From the Kickstarter page:
      The Basius Max collection is a DOUBLE SIDED series of large solid purple resin pads, full of jaw-dropping hand-sculpted negatively recessed texture
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/984996675/basius-max?ref=friends_launched
       

      Basius stamps are one of the most talked about hobby tools that I've never tried, mainly because they never seem to make it to retail.  This time I'm not letting frugality get in the way of awesome bases!

      About this project
      The Sequel to the super popular Ghosts of Gaia. And yes, you can add any of those figures onto your pledge for this one!
      Across the horizon....
      At last... reinforcements.
      Angel, having to maintain the cool exterior, secretly sighed with relief. Now perhaps they stood a chance, perhaps Gaia, stood a chance.

      About
      We have teamed up with Gamecraft for the relaunch of the Miniature Paints range of liquid acrylic paints in our new, mail order friendly packaging. 
        These high quality, pigment rich paints are fully inter-mixable with the other major brands and at 30ml per pot contain around twice as much paint as some of the well known brands.
        Miniature Paints have been around for over 30 years, though originally formulated specifically for use on metal miniatures they work well on resin and plastic that has been properly cleaned and primed, and have been used by our customers on canvas, leather, glass and even fingernails. 

      As this Kickstarter progresses I will share more pictures of the paint in use and being mixed with other ranges.  
      We are trying to keep this Kickstarter as simple as possible so there are no add-ons to worry about, there are 3 paint set options, each one available without extras or with brushes and miniatures added. Just select the pledge that suits you, if you are new to the hobby of collecting and painting miniatures then a pledge with brushes and a sample set of our miniatures (for a special kickstarter price) would be ideal for you. If you are only interested in the paint then the PRO set gets you all 20 paints for the lowest price -just £1.60 per pot! 
      Postage will be added at cost, it is charged based on weight using current Royal Mail prices. 
      Basic Set - £17.50 The Basic Set- 10 colours for £17.50 
      White, Black, Bright Green, Royal Blue, Bright Red, Golden Yellow, 
      Pale Flesh, Chocolate Brown, Bright Gold, Silver. 

      This pledge is also available in an option with brushes and with both brushes and a sampler set of RPE miniatures.
      Advanced Set - £25 The Advanced Set -15  colours for £25  
      This adds 5 more colours to the basic set:
      Dark Green, Mid Blue, Burgundy, Tanned Flesh and Leather Brown 

      This pledge is also available in an option with brushes and with both brushes and a sampler set of RPE miniatures.
      Pro Set -£32 The Pro Set -20 colours for £32        Stretch Goals apply to this pledge.
      This adds another 5 paints to the advanced set-
      White Primer,  Matt Varnish, Dark Grey, Olive Green, Copper

      The "I'll take the lot!", pledge is for anyone that hasn't backed one of our previous projects and wants to catch up in one go, it includes the top level pledge from this kickstarter plus a warband of 10 dwarves, a crew of 12 dwarf pirates, a set of 6 wizards and for a festive touch, Evil Santa, the Snow Queen and an evil present. One or two of the miniatures from those kickstarters are included here as part of the sampler set, so we will replace them with stretch goal add-ons from their respective kickstarters where applicable to avoid duplication. More information and pictures for this pledge will follow in future updates.

      This is a second edition of a game that had some kickstarter success last year.  The project ends in about a week.  A solo game, for those long, lonely nights at sea.
       
      No miniatures, although the price tag is pleasantly miniature in comparison with the bloated behemoths rampaging their way across kickstarter at the moment, devouring available funds.  I know nothing about this game except that the box undeniably very excellent and the custom dice look neat-o.
       
      Cheers.
