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....

 

Some folks would even consider hunters of the wild. FON is a cool army in theme.

I might be interested... I just worry about the material.

I'm listening to that. ABS can work well, but HIP is a bit more consumer friendly. Everyone is right in that it holds a special place in the market. Luckily we can use the same .CAD blue print for HIP plastic.

I was going to spring for an early prototype from the base renders. Let's see!

Not looking too good for this project - 11 days to go, and less than half way to the needed funds. ::(:

 

Megan is holding off - she wanted to see some Stretch Goals before pledging.

 

The Auld Grump - I'm going to slip in a pledge, Stretch Goals are supposed to be a bonus....

That is correct. Renders are booked for the 5th, which will allow me to get the render files for the models. The files can then be translated with the .CAD designer I am working with. Both still very on board.

 

I had to accept the current pace that we will likely not raise 7k as is. Though we still had enough backing to almost raise 3k. Instead of waiting around ill be getting the models to the point we can simply print them. Had a friendly backer suggest a HIP injection molder out of the UK.  http://www.skengineering.co.uk/index.php/4 . We can see if we can get on a waiting list. If this works out, it would make shipments through Europe much easier.

 

Once I get the undercuts cleared, and clearance for a prototype, i'll get a sprue made and painted up. That should give the confidence people need. Im testing frontline gaming's painting service with the Minotaur and Ghoul King for now. In practice we could print the base files we already have, but we will go with the sprue. 

 

We didn't do stretch goals because we wanted to focus on the project, but we know we needed to add on to the pot. Hence, our Minotaur. And for higher pledges, the resin battle upgrade packs. The other thing about stretch pledges at the moment is they would likely be done in resin. Kickstarters have been choking the resin houses as of late with influxes of model demands. 

 

One thing I would love to add is eagles, since we already have concept art for them. But we will see. 

 

Here is the site for updates, I expect it to take a few months.

PS: possibility we might be able to throw in the choice of a Minotaur, a Ghoul King, or a Vampire on Pegasus.

      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.
