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

I do too.

Just saw pics of the undead sets. Some excellent sculpts in those. Very tempting.

Plus I don't have any undead western figures... Yet.

Sure wish I knew what western mini's were going to be offered in Bones IV. With Gloomhaven the previous day, Reaper Bones IV and Dwarven Forge in a few months, and the taxman in two weeks, there's not much budget left for 110 resin miniatures!

I like some of the female figures, but some of those legs are very long, even with the high heels.

The sculpts look good but I am not really interested in the western theme and they are resin not metal.  Will save made.  I wish them luck,  but I wont be joining in on this one.

I'm on the fence. I would be in if there were some nice town citizens to go along with them. There are definitely a few that could be converted to such though. I have a few Black Scorpion western minis in both resin and metal and they are among some of my favorites.

I find I like one or two from this set, one or two from that, same for another. But in those same sets there's usually one or two that I have no interest in at all.

Guess I'm on that fence with you.

No, I agree. In all sets, there is at least one figure that I would not normally pick up. But each pack of 4 figures for £9. That is a pretty darn good deal, even if one particular figure isn't what one desires. E-bay the ones you don't like. :) The stretch goals are spaced out pretty wickedly insane, though. I wonder if they are really calculating to reach this high. I don't know how popular their pirate game is, or how large their fanbase is. But it looks like they have worked harder to prepare a lot in advance, so this should really be a smooth and fast fulfillment.

Take a look at their website. The figures are only slightly higher cost, free shipping at 50 pounds, and some non-western miniatures as well. Still have four packs.

and it's live, and funded!  I failed my will save and went for the full meal deal + book.  I've been wanting to do a Wild West game for a while now, and I like the look of the figures.  <sigh>  Now to explain the charge when it appears on the card to the missus!

That female deputy is sweet. I may go in for the "mix and match" option.  I think I have Billy the Kid from a previous KS or something. Or a very similar sculpt.

      About
      A lone light is on over the table. The players are getting their drinks, snacks, and dice ready as the GM rifles through her notes once more. Last week's map has been rolled out. Michael grabs his phone to look at the picture he took and the end of the last session so you can all get your miniatures in the right spot. Except this time is different. This time you have a new miniature, one that actually represents your character's race. As your compatriots drag out their pre-colored, plastic humans and elves you smile. Pulling out the half-orc you've been using to represent your Netherstorm character, you  flick it across the room. In the same fluid motion, you set your new miniature down on the table. A four-armed, metal monster. He has been cast. You have painted him. And now, he is ready for blood. The room goes silent with awe.
      When we created Netherstorm, we wanted to really show people who we are and how we game. Part of that was coming up with our own, non-standard player races. It was a lot of fun creating, and later playing, characters that weren't the same old elf, dwarf, or half-whatever, however there was a downside. No minis! Maybe you're the GM who likes a good, meticulously drawn map.  Maybe you're a player who enjoys finding the perfect likeness of their character, painting it exactly so, and showing it off on the hexagonal battlefield. The bottom line is, miniatures are awesome. But when you have a unique race, miniatures that encapsulate your character are thin on the ground. Finally, we are making our own minis for use with Netherstorm, as well as other systems. We are starting with our four-armed warrior race, the Kentrona. These desert-born brutes boast many great traits, whether as an impressive PC, an NPC, or a monster for the second greatest role-playing game and other
       
      and from the comments by the creator:
       
      "I can tell you that prompting from others prompted us to commission art for a second miniature, a female Kentrona soldier. We should have it early next week.
      I will update as changes are made, and rest assured, we will be making some changes very soon. (Including removing all additional shipping charges.)
      In the meantime, Netherstorm is available on Drive-thru RPG."

       Fateslayer has been an idea that has been constantly evolving, it has gone through countless names, and changes to its themes and ideas. Finally, I can say the world has started to come together and has started to come alive. It's set in a dark fantasy with a large theme of as you would guess, fate and it's constant struggle to break free from it. Each figure holds a story piece that weaves the world around each other and brings life to the world of Fateslayer. Many of the stories hold secrets and reveals what's to come in the Fateslayer universe. I hope you'll enjoy each of these crafted stories and the many characters that reside inside of it. 
       
      I wont post any of the pics. Some of them are not safe for work.
