About this project

 

Along the Great Northern Trade Route that leads to the town of Midlam, merchants come from distant lands to buy and sell their wares.  

One such trader is the Great Sultan, who has brought along his entourage of advisers, entertainers and of course, his guards.  Also, arriving close behind the Sultan are rumours of strange and exotic wizards, and something more sinister.  

Could it be, that he hopes to escape the curse of the Undead Pharaoh, who's tomb he ordered looted for it's fantastic treasures?

Whatever the truth of the matter, the High Wizard of Midlam has chosen to investigate these rumours...

Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of six 28mm scale mages & priests from the distant desert lands, for all of your Fantasy Egyptian, Pulp and Arabian Nights games.

This is our fourth Kickstarter, and we are using it to help develop and extend our existing range of 'Arabian Nights' miniatures.

We have also included an option to purchase 'An audience with the Great Sultan' alongside the six mages and priests.  The set includes twelve miniatures: The Sultan on rug, two guards, female guard with spear, assassin, servant with fan, panther, caravan guard, adviser, snake charmer, rug merchant and sword swallower.

Getting this project funded will not only help us get these figures made, but will also help us plan and create future ranges and expansions. 

Our three previous Kickstarters, Wizard Apprentices, Wizard Halflings and Cultists of the Kraken Lord all successfully funded and delivered on schedule.

We are also happy to receive suggestions on what to make next!

PLEASE NOTE: The miniatures are cast in a high quality pewter, with a high Tin content, but may contain a small quantity of lead.   We unfortunately cannot guarantee lead free models.

They are not toys, and are not suitable for children. 

We regrettably do not have the ability to produce resin miniatures. 

All miniatures are supplied unpainted.

Nice!  I like the sculpts and they are metal. The full monty comes out to $2.33 a figure.  Is shipping included? June seems an ambitious date, but it looks like everything is sculpted already.

Shipping isn't included.. they've done a ton of other KS's so you could check them for delivery delays.. they also limit how many of each pledge it would appear

Shipping is extra, but when you pick a pledge level it will autoupdate to the correct sum.

My £12 pledge turned into £18 because of international shippng.

 

Still worth it...

wizards apprentices was funded in Aug... estimating shipping in Oct and started shipping in Oct.. completed Nov 4... so June is not too ambitious. I like this more than Krakens so I'm in!

I've backed their previous three, and have nothing but positive things to say.  Everything has arrived early, and in great shape.

I probably won't back this one, as I don't have a need for further Egyptian pieces any time soon.  But it doesn't mean I won't tell others to!

      WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ABOUT?
      This KickStarter is a joint venture between Royal Art Games and Impact! Miniatures to bring two incredible looking metal Fantasy Football teams from Rolljordan into affordable resin for about half the price of the metal teams to give more gamers the opportunity to own these great models. The resin versions of these models will be molded from the re-touched masters that Rolljordan produced to make this a better more pitch-worthy team than when it was first released. The miniatures will be offered in Standard team which have everything you need to have a full team and Deluxe versions that will give you sideline characters (like cheerleaders) and star players.

      The KickStarter is bringing the Necro Undead and Volmarian Dwarf teams into resin. The KickStarter is also offering the teams from the last joint venture KickStarter at great prices.

      Here are the team and pack selections for the KickStater.



      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack





      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack

      The Deluxe team is the Standard team plus this Deluxe pack






      The miniatures in the four teams are the new resin that Impact! started using this year that is stronger and able to be painted much easier than our past resin. The miniatures all come with bases and are provided unpainted. The miniatures will require light clean up and some assembly (although many of the models are one piece). Impact! Miniatures has created several KickStarters and delivered to all backers on all our previous KickStarters so bid with confidence. We are keeping this KickStarter small and focused so that we can quickly produce the teams and get them shipped out on time. NOTE on shipping: Shipping options are displayed when you pledge for a reward. Shipping is free to the USA, $5 to Canada and $10 to all other locations.

      About Ambionics
       
      My name is Ben.  I’ve been on an extraordinary journey over the past two years which started when my son was born.  Sadly, Sol lost most of his lower left arm due to a blood clot following an injury at birth.  
      I responded as any parent would have. I looked into how Sol would be treated and what support we could expect.  I quickly learned that many toddlers abandon prosthetics early on and I wanted to know why so Sol would stand a better chance. Calling on my psychology background and my passion for engineering, I started doing my own research.  I noticed big gaps in what was being offered and saw lost opportunities at several key stages.  Rather than complain, I decided to do something about it and set up Ambionics. 

      (Above) Dressing change at Alder Hey Children's Hospital post-amputation
      We deliver a totally new kind of online service and are currently developing unique functional prosthetic solutions (including our world famous hydraulic technology) for children with upper limb differences everywhere.    
      Our first press release (March 1 this year) went viral.  The response was truly out of this world and our story was covered in every Country and in every language. Most of the media attention centred on the hydraulic prototype we are working on. 
      It's inspired by the way spiders use fluid to move their legs (to find out more please follow the press links below). However, there is much more to Ambionics besides this.  Let me explain...
       
      Early Intervention

      Children are usually given their first prosthetic arm between 6 and 12 months of age. We introduce prosthetics much sooner - one month after an amputation (as in the case of my son) or from the moment a child with a limb difference arrives home from hospital.  The director for innovation at NHS Wales described our research based approach as ‘potentially revolutionary’. 
       
      Replace casting with scanning

      Normally parents must take time off work to attend appointments at specialist centres which might be hundreds of miles away from where they live.  A prosthetist then creates a plaster cast mould of the affected arm and this is used to make a crude socket.  Young children often find this stressful.  They can wriggle and resist when the cast is taken and any sudden jerk can result in a poor fitting socket and a poor first experience of prosthetics. 
      At Ambionics, parents simply scan their child’s arm while they are asleep then upload the file to our online platform. We do the rest and deliver the prosthetic through the postal service! Simple! It takes about five minutes to do the scan and 40 minutes for us to model a socket. It’s worth noting that within two years all phones and hand held devices will come with a scanning application built in.

      5 Day Turn Around (compared to 6 - 11 weeks)

      A traditional prosthetic can take as long as 11 weeks to make. 
      From a fresh scan, we can produce a new arm within a matter of hours
       
      Backup Copies

      If a traditional prosthetic is misplaced or damaged it can take five weeks to get an appointment for a re-mould, and another 11 weeks before the replacement arm arrives (that’s four months without an arm!).  At Ambionics we just print another from the digital copy we keep.
       
      Reduced Waste

      Traditional prosthetics are discarded after use.  To help keep costs down and reduce our carbon footprint, Ambionics only replace parts that need replacing or upgrading – this is usually just the detachable socket.   
       
      Managing Growth Rates

      Traditionally, children receive two arms per year (based on NHS service) which means that for a lot of the time the socket is either too tight or too loose.  Plaster cast arms are designed to be slightly oversized so children can grow into them. This is a false economy in our opinion because loose or unsecure arms and ones that are too tight don’t inspire confidence. It’s easy to see why so many children stop wearing them. We recommend at least four or five sockets per year depending on the needs of the child.   
       
      Making Devices More Accessible

      In most cases, cosmetic arms are made of fibre glass coated in varnish with a functionless silicone hand (often described as creepy looking).  These are surprisingly expensive for what they are! In the US, a cosmetic arm can cost as much as $5,000!  Our knowledge of 3D printing and scanning has the potential to seriously reduce these costs, making prosthetics accessible to children everywhere (and anywhere!)
      We also believe in customising the look of the hand.  We want to help break the stigma of 'cosmetic' prosthetic devices by offering bold colours and a choice of designs for infants. 
      We even encourage older children to take part in the design process.  What better way to meet a young person's needs than to enable them to produce their own assistive devices and accessories!

      Kickstarter

    • By Knight of the Dinner Table
      That company is quite busy on Kickstarter, always nice miniatures with a certain character. The idea of getting one miniature in standing and "sleeping" / "dead" position is unique I think ... though I don't know if it's useful. On the other hand, a couple of sleeping halflings might go well with my hafling village ...
