Time for testing.

The primer and liner seem to give similar results. The paint only is not enough...unfortunately.

Got mine today.  Everything looks good, but the hot southern summer was not kind to the horse and cart.

However, I also finally have a horse and cart for EVERY D&D MODULE EVER WRITTEN, so that's nice.

I must have missed this during the Kickstarter. I was expecting similar product to Bones and Dwarvenite. Is that not what I should have been expecting?

No - that is exactly what it is - firmer than Bones, and holding detail well.

 

I can honestly say I have no idea what he is on about - it is exactly as described, well detailed, and sturdy.

 

I have already started priming mine.

I can answer that, cause it's the reason I dropped out of the kickstarter.

 

Mantic was never clear on the hardness of the plastic being used. They kept on saying it would be the same as the minis found in their Walking Dead game.

Mantic made the exact same statement regarding The Star Saga plastic.

 

The problem with that statement is The Walking Dead terrain, the vehicles, batticades, and supply tokens, are made of a hard non bendy plastic. Similar to that of the Bones container or Wyrmgears wings.

The minis of the Walking Dead Characters are made of a slightly softer plastic, still firmer than Bones though.

 

The Star Saga character minis are made of a similar plastic as the Walking Dead characters.

Howevet The Star Saga terrain is a much softer bendy plastic that is nowhere near the hardness of the Walking Dead terrain.

 

Fear of not knowing what I'd be getting is what made me back out of this campaign.

In a first for a Mantic KS there are no major mispacks or QC issues with my pledge! So it is all washing hopefully I can start painting tomorrow!

 

Also I hadn't realized the book cases stack.

Actually, they answered that question several times during the campaign - pretty sure you can find it buried in the extremely long comments section.

 

Whether or not you got to see the answer before it got buried under chaff....?

 

But it is exactly what I expected from the description - neither super hard nor super bendy.

 

I can't compare it to Dwarven Forge - I pretty much skip them every time.

 

Nor can I compare them with Star Saga.

 

But I can compare them to Bones and to the Dungeon Saga furniture.

 

Better detailed than the DS furniture - crisper corners, deeper yet less exaggerated textures - definitely an improvement over the DS furniture.

 

Less bendy than Bones - only a few of the really skinny pieces - candlesticks, cressets - show any bending - and those look like a hot water/cold water dip will fix them just fine.

 

I really do not understand what he is on about - they have good detail, are not overly bendy - at a guess, maybe he wanted resin?

 

I run games for kids - these are better detailed than some resin furniture, and much, much less fragile.

If they did, then it's a shame Mantic never updated the kickstarter FAQ.

Even now it still states it's the same as The Walking Dead plastic, and as I stated previously, the Walking Dead terrain is not bendy at all.

The horse and cart are high on the list of things I wanted from this. I've got plans for them in several games.

Still nothing here in Oz.

 

Bit annoying that we don’t get the plastic inserts like the retail box. Do the Kickstarter boxes have more items in them than the retail versions?

From the looks of the options they have up for preorder, looks like significantly more.

      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.

      About this project
      Origin
      As you know, rats are zoologically original from Sulawesi, a tropical island in Indonesia. We decided to re-design the famous rat army as a Sulawesi tribe.
      Background
      The night was cool and moist. She was moving into the forest with seasoned experience, silently, predatory, and careful to not become prey. ..  ...That same day, a few hours before and in a very far place, two armies were deployed, each in front the other, ready for the imminent fight. Among these, two powerful wizards found in war a credible pretext to face. To show everyone who were the best among them; the strongest, the best. .. read more

      Surprised this hasn't made it here yet.
      Tre is at it again, this time with an Aenglish based warband.  Sitting at 10 figures for $55.  A full-figured female mage with her male apprentice, a female thief and 7 semi modular men-at-arms.  End date is 8 days away (KS just went live yesterday), and he has several stretch goals planned.  Just about funded now.
       
      Sorry for no picture, my work computer doesn't like to cough up links.

      About this project
      Hail traveler!
      In this campaign i offer you modular dungeon pieces and accessories for  game masters and diorama builders.
      NO walls to hinder the view on the action, NO weeks of 3D printing necessary, NO connectors to puzzle around with, lots of possible add ons...
      With the campaign money i will buy the materials and make additional silicon molds for the parts i don't actually cast at the moment. The production can then start.
      As a registered Hirst Arts licensee i offer a wide variety of the great hirst arts stones cast out of ceramic, some molds and many (resin) terrain pieces.
      I also offer gaming aids and add ons usable for many games. Just have a look in my shop 
      The basics for this campaign:
      Each floor tile is based on a one by one inch field. All pieces are made of resin and come UNPAINTED. All pieces must be washed to get rid of the mold release spray. All pieces can have sharp edges that must be sanded (wear a dusk mask while doing this) or can be small and are not suitable for children below 14 years! This is not a toy and meant for older gamers. "Dungeon Poins" (DP)
      You can add all other pieces with "Dungeon Points". Every Dungeon Point costs you 0.25 EUR. Just add up all the "Dungeon Points" for all pieces you want and divide the sum by 4 and you get what to pledge in EUR.
      You can download an Excel calculation sheet here:
      The "Hawksworld Dungeon Set".
      The "Dungeon Master" pledge starts with the pictured set that is not available in the store at the moment. All the pieces you see in the following picture come UNPAINTED and cast out of resin.
