Black Scorpion Miniatures/Tombstone Kickstarter 5th april

Recommended Posts

"I've set this folder up to start showing the previews for the Tombstone kicksarter. We expect to launch on April 5th, over the next couple of weeks I'll be previewing the new miniatures.. all 110 of them over 7 factions! Probably a faction every few days. Also previews from the book, details about the game and kickstarter etc.. Tombstone is an old west skirmish game, rulebook (available in English, Spanish, German and French) and miniatures launched via Kickstarter. For now I've added some photos of the scenery we used for scenic shots for the book and some play testing. 1f642.png:) I'm extremely proud of the work that has gone into this project and book and can't wait to share it with you."

I am usually a bit reserved over what projects I really hope hits big, but I really like the old western theme, so here's one I hope will do great. :) Just look at those factions; lawmen, outlaws, indians, mexicans UNDEAD zombie cowboys! Holy cow! :D

I don't know about the game, but their miniatures are excellent.  I just hope all the females don't look like whores. I'm encouraged by the cowgirl in the 2nd image above, (the one that says "coming soon") would like to see that one on the game table.

I have some of  their previous female minis from back when they were producing metal minis and they did provide a mix of "sexy" and "sensible" female sculpts. Hopefully they'll continue with that and not overdo it.

I've been waiting for this one.  I have a bunch of their western (and pirate) minis already and they are excellent!

I've a bunch of the their western and pirate minis too, all back from when they were still casting them in metal. Some of my favourite minis for those genres. Don't own any of their resin pieces though.

I've got several of their resins and the quality is pretty decent. While the sculpting style is a bit "simplistic" there are a lot of sculpts that have a ton of character, still. Every year when I head over to Salute, their booth is always one I make sure to visit to pick up a gunslinger or a swashbuckler. :) And with them going to release 100+ miniatures for this campaign, there will for sure be a lot of variety for individual preferences for those who'd rather cater to that.

I bought some of their resins during a sale last year.  And I have to agree completely with Grefven.  The sculpts themselves are not overly detailed, but they have enough, and they do have a ton of character and the style really works for me.  I'm sure I'll pick up something, but not likely to go overboard on this either.

Are there going to be any civilians as part of this? Some regular townsfolk including children would be nice.

No clue whatsoever. I am not very familiar with their gaming system. But there are simple townfolks in their existing miniature range, so I suppose that it isn't entirely out of the question.

They used to do a fair number of civilians in their metal days, but I got the impression they're sort of moving away from that. I don't think there's civilians for their pirate game (Cutlass iirc) beyond a single noblewoman type. So I wouldn't get my hopes up too high.

Looks pretty interesting. Love the sculpts so far. If anything, if there is just a rules pledge, you can always sub in Reaper's western themed minis.

These female look pretty good. :)

Not sure I can make my will save against this Kickstarter.  A have several of their metal minis and I really like them.

      For those looking for something a little different in character and style from the usual fantasy minis.
       
    • By Gadgetman!
      One of my favorite authors have a new KS project...  
      Because there just ain't enough slice of life or baking in modern Sci-Fi books...
       
       
       
      About
      Years ago I wrote a science fiction story about two forever-friends, unlike in almost every way--species, backgrounds, temperaments, orientations--and how they came together in a relationship that would last through every tribulation, including an intergalactic war. When readers asked me how they met, I wrote their college story. When readers asked me what happened next, I wrote how they began their xenotherapy practice. I'm still writing about them, in fact, because they are, bar none, my readers' best loved couple.
      Their names are Jahir and Vasiht'h, and they are dreamhealers.
      Some people call their story an asexual romance, but whether you go for that or prefer 'forever besties', these stories are about growing up, making choices, figuring out relationships, deciding on what your life means--or should--and baking. A lot of baking. They are cozy slice-of-life novels, and there aren't a lot of novels like them in science fiction. If cups of tea are your cup of tea, you might enjoy checking out Book 1 and 2 respectively. There's an e-book reward tier; you can choose one of them! This Kickstarter in particular is to fund the print edition for Book 3, Dreamhearth, and possibly Books 4 and 5, Dreamstorm and Family, if we hit our stretch goals.
      I love space ships and aliens and epic war sagas. But science fiction has room for quieter stories about what you want to be when you grow up, and the thorny personal challenges of day-to-day life. If you also love spaceships and aliens but want a moment's respite... you might have come to the right place.
      Stretch Goals
      We've got plenty to look forward to this time, including the opportunity for two more paperbacks!
      Bookmark 1. At $750, we'll get Jahir bookmarks! Every print backer will get one! Dreamstorm paperback. At $1000, we'll hit the Dreamstorm stretch goal, opening new tiers! Bookmark 2. At $1500, we'll get the Vasiht'h bookmarks! All print backers will get both bookmarks! Family paperback. At $2000, we'll do a print edition of the final book in the series, Family, opening Yet More Tiers! Risks and challenges
      As much as possible I've streamlined this one so it takes very little by way of work. I've gotten very good at packing and shipping things!
      I think the biggest risks are:
      1. I get hyper and start throwing in prizes and things that I shouldn't because I like running myself to ragged shreds doing stuff;
      2. I get too perfectionist about the things and fuss them to death over millimeter differences in whitespace only I am going to care about.
      I think I'll be able to handle #2 since I've done OVER NINE THOUSAND of these Kickstarters. It's #1 you all are going to have to help me with. Sit on me if I start gibbering about something that sounds impossible, please?

      This is for the supplement, but you can pick up the original book as well if you missed it like I did.

      Burning Rose Kickstarter
      On 12th April we will be launching a Kickstarter to fund the creation of the Daughters of the Burning Rose, an entire new army of gothic medieval warrior women!
      The range is heavily inspired by historical armour and weaponry. Models will cover a range of fantasy, steampunk and gothic sci-fi styles, so you can use them in all kinds of game systems and settings.
      We are using Kickstarter because we have exciting ideas for a huge range of different infantry, character and larger models, and we need your support to help make them a reality.
       
      The Models
      The models will be 28mm heroic scale, designed to closely match similar plastic models from existing manufacturers. 
      Rank and file infantry will be modular and fully poseable with a range of options.
      All models will be made in hand cast resin, manufactured in our London studios using the same high-quality methods we have been perfecting since 2011. 
      We will be offering around 8-10 different models to start with, but have many more at various stages in the design process which we can unlock if we get enough funding.
       

       
      The Pledge levels
      There will not be any “early bird” pledges/special offers, so you won’t miss out if you are not able to join us for the launch. 
      You will be able to pledge any amount of money, and choose exactly the models from the collection you need to suit your game system, making a great saving against the retail price. 
      Shipping will be charged after the campaign ends, and you will be able to change and add to your pledge on the pledge manager website.
      We will have pledge levels at £1, £40, £100 and £250, which will give you access to a number of exclusive models and freebies depending on how much support we get.
       
       

       

       

       

       
       

       
      Not a company I've heard of before, but they do seem to have good reputation as a 3rd party supplier of Imperial Guard bits.
       
      There's a few more bits of concept art on their Facebook page.
