Minotaur Brute looks good. Maybe open that up as an addon? I know its on preorder on your website.

I'm liking what I see so I upped to the $50/3 box level.

Thank you. I'm correcting and revising what the artist is sending, and then ill do a rank of 5 for the page.  Throwing some Minotaurs to backers wouldn't kill me, perhaps 1 for each pledge.

I like the concept picture with the spear, but agree that it does look more amazon than Thracian faun huntress.

Some minor sketches, correcting the wicker shield to be just as it was. However, the idea of a neutral torso is being introduced, and should open up a lot of melee weapon possibilities. 

 

The rank of 5 should include some special add ons. Narrowing down the choices, as thracians were not typically held to traditional standards you might find in Greece. If they carried items into battle, they would be light.

now if you turn that spear around, shorten it a bit and the arm comes separate from the body, you'd have a javelin thrower. Legs extra, too, so that it could be a more dynamic pose (or were you focusing on the upper torso here to give as the basic idea?).

 

I guess we need to know how many parts you are planning for one miniature: head extra, torso extra, one leg part or two leg parts? ... two arms extra with open hands so you can put different weapons into those hands?

How can it be ensured that the arms fit the body in different positions? ...

It would have to come down to creativity. If we want a neutral body like the spear above to have a bow, we would have it carry a bow. The original javelin pose repurposed to portray a spear backing the first line. Another example following legs shows how we can use the neutral spear body, with a pair of new legs.

With the minotaur added for free to everyone at $25 or over the value has really increased.

Assuming a discounted value of $10 for the minotaur, the $50 level gives you 3 boxes at basically $13.33 each. That is a super value. $1.33 per beastman.

So... I think I am out. The project looks really nice, but from some comments I have read it seems like delivery/production is being underestimated. The Creator responded but with more of a "the factory is nice and like us" kind of response. Also the material is going to be the stuff Legos are made of... Not sure about that either. I have tried to cut Legos (don't ask) and it would be a nightmare to convert whole units out of.

 

I hope they do get funded. The project looks great, and it is a great value... but it is starting to sound more risk than I am willing to do. So I wont be keeping up with this thread for updates.

I like the art on these, however on the digital sculpts the torso-to-legs ratio looks off to me.  It looks fine in the concept art.

It might be the angle from what the renders are viewed at. I should be able to get some future renders where we straighten it out for the viewers. Fixing a concept for a throwing knife and a throwing axe to help the javelin line a tad. Consulting with the factory if HIP plastic is an option. The original inspiration with ABS plastic was due in part to Kingdom of Death. We saw how they used resin, and experimented with ABS (if I read correctly, they blend ABS and HIP) to make their products affordable.

Kingdom Death models are... affordable?  :blink: 

 

I think I just failed a saving throw for sanity. My reality is coming undone. :;,;:

Moreso, but they are expensive.

That Minotaur looks awesome!!  Is it for sure offered if I pledge?

 

I only paint so I would not need more than 10 and would only be at the $25 pledge.

 

I am pretty interested in these... I have been on a beastman kick lately for some reason and I think these would fit in nicely.

Hmm, forwarding the info to Megan - she is thinking about a Forces of Nature army for KoW, and Herd would make great allies for them.

 

The Auld Grump - greater love knows no man, than to give his lady love suggestions for things to kill his army with....

100% guaranteed to have a Minotaur for each pledge of 25 or more. They will be on hand in about a week, we have the Fed ex express number to keep tabs.

      About this project
      The Story
      Hello again from Munchkin Metropolis!  This time around I'm targeting all of you Roleplay Gamers!  With my DIY Dungeon Kit you can now take your game nights to a whole new level.  Being able to customize your dungeons into the format you want makes being a game master so much more fun!  Below you'll see the Base Set that includes the 4 most popular sets, plus the Stretch Goal Furniture Set.  The miniatures pictured are not included in your reward (I just wanted to show how I personally utilize this setup)...Other than that, the picture is exactly what you'll receive. 
      Too Much Information
      I've recently been to the Doc and have been placed on a very strict diet and workout regimen (Working out isn't that strict, it's just 30min of light cardio daily).  But he told me not to do anything overly physical, which for a woodworker means I can't really work.  So, to save my heart and keep my business afloat, I've chosen a campaign that utilizes the laser for 80% of the work...with the remaining 20% being light physical duty.
      Due to the sheer weight of these items, I've worked to minimize the cost on materials and labor as much as possible.   The base set weighs almost 15lb and will ship in a 12x12x6 corrugated box.  Making each set is 8 hours of laser time and about 2 hours physical labor (Which is why I set the delivery date 2 months out instead of 1...but for you early backers, expect me to start shipping rewards within a week of the campaign ending.)  Mostly, I wanted to GUARANTEE delivery before Christmas.  By setting it to October, I will have plenty of time to handle anything that comes up. 
      The base set already includes the 4 most popular Expansions and will make an AWESOME Christmas Gift!  
      The floor pieces are designed so that you can expand into infinity to make those LARGE scale battle zones.  
      You'll choose either 1 or 2 inch per expansion. Each Wall Expansion is designed to be as versatile as your campaign!  
      A Base Set ready to ship (The Furniture Set is in the bag)

      Science Fiction themed 1 vs many boardgame featuring resin miniatures, 3 factions at present.  Creators are apparently partnering with Ninja Division for the miniatures and production, which may give some pause.  It's a shorter term campaign - 12 days left, with funding just reached tonight.

      About this project
      Overview
      Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love.   Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. 
      You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures.
      Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need.
      Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price.  We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists.  So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use.
      Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility.  We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. 
       
       
      The Process
      First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story.

      Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories.  But made sure they could easily fit your stories too.

      Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below.

      What you get for your support:
      Set #1 - Human Adventurers
      Concept design:
      Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples:
      Male Viking Warrior  
      Female Blademaster  
      Male Cleric  
      Male Ranger  
      Male Wizard  
      Female Archer
