"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.

      About this project
      This project is designed to bring you new Warriors of Baalor miniatures for the Darklands fantasy wargame from Mierce Miniatures!
      Warriors of Baalor are powerful, heavily armoured humans loyal to Baalor, the evil power of the Great Ice Sheet, lord of the Fomoraic and the greatest threat the Lands of Darkness have ever known.
       
      All Warriors of Baalor were human, once, but have been turned to Baalor's cause by the twin promises of power and slaughter. They are rewarded with a strength, skill and fearlessness unknown to mortal men, and if they survive the wars of the Ice they can become the leaders of Baalor's great war-hosts, answering only to him.
      The Eye Arisen, Great Axe Warrior of Baalor Unit We've already begun work on the Warriors of Baalor sculpts!
         
      The easiest (and cheapest!) way to get hold of the new Warriors of Baalor is by pledging for one of the infantry starter hosts, shown below. Scroll down and you'll see loads more starter hosts than just this one - and there'll be more versions of the Warriors of Baalor as this project continues, too!
       
      The Darklands: Warriors of Baalor Kickstarter project is not just designed to bring you the new Warrior of Baalor miniatures for the Fomoraic, though - it's also a great opportunity to get into the dark fantasy world of Darklands for the first time, to expand your existing Darklands collection or maybe just to grab some fantastic miniatures to paint! As you can see, we've give you the option to purchase everything in resin, if you're more of a painter than a gamer!
      Make sure you check the comments on this project too for sneak peeks, Darklands lore, hints, tactics, painting advice and general insanity! The community that builds during these Kickstarter projects is amazing, and even if you just read the comments, you'll gain so much more from Darklands: Warriors of Baalor!

      Hello all.
      I just launched my sixth Map project on kickstarter.  This time I am working on larger 18" x 24" and 24" x 36" maps.
      Please take a look if this sounds interesting:  https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1592014779/battlemaps-in-25mm-scale-for-tabletop-games

        About this project
      As far as one can remember, Elves always dominated the world. They are condescending and quite full of themselves. But their time is drawing to an end as decline looms over their kind. From the Bohorg tribe to the Steamfield Barony, along with the Godleif clan and the Army of the Tomb, every clan is secretly arming itself to conquer the elven cities and the precious crystals they hold to forge the powerful legendary equipment and take the Emerald Empire back!
       
      Designed by Frédéric Guérard (Titanium Wars, Ilôs, …), illustrated by Djib (Titan race, Sabordage,…), and published by La boite de jeu (10’ to kill, Outlive,…) Clash of Rage is a conquest and skirmish game with miniatures in which different clans will fight for victory. Every army is unique, with its own units and characteristics. Players will equip each unit as they see fit, buying weapons and armors so that every game will be different! Overcoming the Elves will be the first necessary step to victory, but the showdown with the other clans is bound to happen!
      After 2 Years of development and hundreds of playtests, this is what Clash of Rage brings to the table:
      High replay value and endless customization of your armies with equipment and heroes. Short term in-game strategy combined with long range campaign planning giving you bonuses from one scenario to the other (a skirmish mode and a scenario mode).  An innovative combat system that rewards your armies’ complementarity over the number of units.  A turn order mechanism depending on the tactical cards you’ll play (that also define the reinforcements and income you’ll get).  An easy-to-learn game system, yet offering countless strategic possibilities mainly related to your tactical cards, equipment and actions choices. We showcased the game in lots of conventions so be sure that Clash of Rage is ready to roll out! We truly believe in this game and think you’ll have a ton of fun with it. The Elves are in for a challenge!

      About this project
      What is this thing??
      Tabletop RPGs have many bits and pieces. And there isn't a good way to hold everything in one place that is good looking, convenient, and has an active role in the gameplay, right? WRONG! 
      It's the Adventurer's Kit.
      Question: So what does it do exactly?
      Better Question: What does it NOT do?
           The Adventurer's Kit comes with a:
      Favorite dice section Space for more dice More space for dice (or anything you like to put there. Do what you want. I'm a gamer not a cop.) Place for pens and pencils Pencil sharpener  Modular miniature box (informational gif below) Phone charger Brackets for a phone or tablet Card section for spell cards or flash cards Large rolling tray Clipboard for your character sheet Brackets for the character sheet clipboard and/or book Space to transport books to your gaming location It allows for gaming in a unique location (forest, renaissance faire, etc.)   If you've ever lost dice or minis or crimped the corners of your otherwise pristine character sheet then you want to look at The Adventurer's Kit. This well organized case contains space for everything. Lets take a look at some examples of it's versatility.
