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

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 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.

      The Wrath of Cichol is the first episodic release for Creatures of the Night.
      Creatures of the Night is a fantasy miniature range (and perhaps, in the future, a game) designed by Krakon Games. Each chapter explores a period from the Lebor Gabála Érenn (Book of Invasions) - an Irish histro-mythology exploring the various races to inhabit and invade ancient Eriu (Ireland).
      Chapter 1: The Wrath of Cichol introduces both the Fomorian adversaries and one of the first invaders - Partholón.
      By backing this project you will help fund the production of Krakon Games' first fantasy range and be "rewarded" with your chosen models.
      All models will be cast in resin and supplied without bases. Most are multi-part models that require a little cleaning and assembly.
      There are 8 large character models available at project launch, with a list of stretch goals that will unlock as funding levels increase. If there's something on the stretch goal list you would like, feel free to include it in your pledge total to help unlock it.

      Your RPG adventures develop into a world like no other.  The places, the players, the trinkets and treasures that are discovered.
      These vivid constructs exist in our imaginations in incredible detail - our aim is to bring each element of your RPG experience to life with an all new 3D modular dungeon!
      Not just another STL file sale...
      We're living in exciting times; 3D printing has emerged in a variety of industries for rapid prototyping and one-off on demand prints.
      So far, 3D printing has proven extremely expensive for the average Joe given machinery, materials and equipment rental costs.  Frankly, printing a whole Dungeon is not practical or cost effective for the vast majority of RPG players.  That is, until now!
      At RPG Factory, we do not sell virtual files which you'll need to print yourself - we've done all of the hard work for you!
      We produce fully printed products so that you can assemble, paint and play in no time at all!
       
      RPG Factory is built on talent and vision.  We have a huge amount of artistic, CAD and business experience which we're using to deliver a cost effective product which is durable, easy to assemble and practical for RPG gamers of all ages!
      It's been 12 months in the making...
      We've been developing our ideas for months, working out the kinks in our designs to make sure that our products strike a balance between looking good and functioning as gaming pieces.
      We've taken the time to trial the modular system with gamers to make sure that it integrates properly with the most popular gaming systems.  Particularly ones which house fearsome giant lizards in giant concrete underworlds...
      Finally, we've experimented with a number of different materials to ensure that the final product is extremely durable, captures detail and takes paint without discolouration or de-lamination.
      Section of the Dungeon All of this effort and attention to detail has led us to our first Kickstarter, but we won't be stopping there!  The funding for this Kickstarter will be going straight back into the RPG Factory coffers so that we can expand on our range in the future (and boy do we have a lot of ideas for you!!)
      So, if you want to immerse yourself in exciting new adventures, dive right in and Pledge today!
      Crawl through the twisting corridors, facing terrible foes!  
       
         
      We have designed the dungeons to be as modular as possible, giving you a huge number of options!
      A number of components within the Dungeon set can be used in different ways, further increasing versatility.
      Our clip system allows your set to be assembled quickly, for testing layouts and re-engineering your network or corridors and rooms in minutes!
      Our Dungeon components are supplied unassembled and unpainted.

      Miniature lights for all shapes
      Grimlight are tiny magnet-controlled light circuits for miniature gaming, dungeon mastering, model trains, LARP:s and whatever else you can think of. Grimlight has the following features:
      Magnetic control – switch on and off without touching the miniature Easy to hide – 0.2 mm wiring laid either inside or on the miniature  Switchable effects – fixed, pulsating or flickering chosen by magnet Convenient – easy to use and install  Small circuit – 21*2.4 mm fits in regular 28 mm miniature bases  Small led's – 0.6 mm fits in a drill hole  Battery operated – using a CR1216 clock battery  Long stand-by time – over a year  Flexible – 2 led's per circuit  Any colour – paint or cover the light thinly in any colour  SHIPPING INCLUDED, WORLDWIDE! How about that?

      Stretch goals
      SEK 140,000: We add additional effect settings to each Grimlight SEK 150,000: Produce a guide for how to modify the software to change lighting effects. Publish all code under an open license. SEK 200,000: We add some fiber optic cables with every physical Grimlight reward, perfect for added variation. To be continued.... Rewards
      To keep it simple there are only a few different reward tiers. For different amounts of Grimlights, just pledge in multiples of the chosen non-"early bird" tier. The regular one that we believe will be what most want is the 250 SEK tier simply called "five grimlights". For ease of handling and due to shipping cost it is only possible to get Grimlight in multiples of five. If you would like to get 15 for example, just pledge 750 SEK. The reward level "5 Grimlights with larger battery holder" are Grimlights that are modified to operate from three AAA batteries instead of from one CR1216. If you want to add lighting to something big and think it would be good with extended time (about 50 times the capacity) before needing to change batteries this is for you. If you have some special needs and ideas for the lighting you need there is also a tier where we can program custom effects for you (within the constraints of what is possible with the micro-controller we are using).

      ABOUT THE PROJECT
      Aeon Trespass: Nymphs is a beautiful series of pin-up style miniatures inspired by Greek mythology and the Science Fantasy genre. Each Nymph is a highly detailed resin miniature in the 32mm scale – perfect for painters, collectors and wargamers alike – and comes with a scenic base, an art print and a hand-numbered authenticity note, everything enclosed in hand-stamped craft box. This Kickstarter is a limited collector’s run, which means the miniatures may not be available outside the campaign or, if they are available, they will be released as an unnumbered Encore edition.
      WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?  
      We are a group of passionate professionals, eager to leave our mark upon the miniatures hobby world. With this first limited collection we wanted to make sure our message was clear: we strive for original content of the highest quality. Our pin-up models were inspired by Greek paintings and sculptures. We’ve taken care to be inclusive, choosing to go for the varied natural body types over photoshopped magazine cover artificial beauty. Bottom line: we want you to be satisfied and awed by the hard work of our fantastic artists and sculptors. 
      WHAT IS AEON TRESPASS?  
      Art doesn’t exist in a void. It needs context to be fully realized and appreciated. The great paintings and sculptures are as much a fruit of the artist’s labor, as they are of the times they were created in. So too, we wanted to root our Nymphs in a world that is more tangible and ‘lived-in’. We love world-building and game design; cool giant monsters, grizzled anti-heroes and epic tales of adventure. All that – and much more! – awaits you in the world and game of Aeon Trespass. 
      The story takes places many years after Olympus fell - an event ominously called the Eschaton - when mortals have to deal with both, an unchecked technological progress and a return to more primal beliefs that precede even the old gods. It is a dark, dangerous world, stalked by kaiju-like monsters and visited by otherworldly entities, but one not without hope: courage, valor, loyalty and a penchant for beauty, they all shine the brightest in the pitch black of night.  
      NYMPHS
      The Nymphs are a group of powerful entities that sprang into being after the old gods of Olympus died. Their motivations are unknown and their methods inscrutable. What is known, is that they like to play with the fates of mortals... Below you will find a short description of each Nymph and their place in the world.
      This is just a small foray into that world: a wetting of your feet, if you will. Inspired by the great storytelling works of Dark Souls, Malazan Book of the Fallen and Kingdom Death, we’ve sprinkled small pieces of lore into those sections that will inform you further on the world of Aeon Trespass and point into the direction of its mysteries and secrets.
