My miniature purchases do not regularly consist of 75mm or busts. Are these great prices to jump in on? I'm looking at two busts and three 75mm if I can swing the hobby fund. Otherwise, 2 busts and the smaller versions will do.

Yeah very good prices, especially since they are high quality and some are KS exclusives.

Free shipping too! Since they are from Spain, that could have have been pricy. 

 

I was was hoping to escape this one but my two favorites are exclusives, so I am in.

There's a lot of tempting stuff in this one but those prices aren't cheap.

Will be watching this.

 

Questions for anyone in the know. Kickstarter shows this as the creators first project but in the campaign description they mention they are fulfilling a previous project.

Anyone familiar with this company, it's history, or had dealings with them previously?

They're talking about 'Fallen Frontiers' by Scale Games LLC.

 

The quality of their minis is aweinspiring(I have a few that I've yet to do anything bad to, including a couple of smog riders which comes with painting instructions... ) and I fully expect these to also be awesome.

Making some of them 'KS Exclusivs' is kind of mean, though...

One, yes, but so many...

Actually, they're talking about their "Steam Wars" series of Indiegogo campaigns. Most characters getting busts now wwere originally featured as 75mm miniatures in those. Very reliable company with a good track record, except that record is not on Kickstarter.

That's just as well. I've only pledged for 2 busts, there's 4 KS exclusive busts, and Helga is one of those. 

So that means I only have to agonize over which 2 out of the other 3 I want...

While not into Steampunk babes & such, Jessica Thunderhawk peaks my interest. Seeing that she is one of the 4 KS exclusives, means I'll have to decide before the KS ends. Just not sure I really wanna spend over 40 for something that will probably just sit in the box on the shelf.

As much as I like the company, busts just aren't my cup of tea. 

 

I noticed that the prices of their add-ons seemed a bit higher than I remembered, and they are a bit more expensive than the European list price.  I assume that in order to cover "free" worldwide shipping, they've simply factored shipping into their base costs.  If you just pick up a couple this is likely still cheaper than a direct order & either way is cheaper than their US storefront.

      About this project
      Help Cold War Miniatures to launch a new range of Resin Wargame Minis for Gamers, Collectors and Painters. 
      Hawkmen by Cold War Minis Inspired by the old black and white serials but with a modern twist, these minis are an imagining of a range from a "rediscovered lost serial". 
      Adversarial Aliens, Despotic Dictators and Rampaging Robot Legions are all planned, the range launches with the Heroic Hawkmen.
      The range is scaled at "Heroic 28" (32mm) which is a standard size for current Sci-Fi and Fantasy Minis. At this size they are slightly taller than some older 28mm ranges and slightly shorter than some newer ranges but should sit well alongside both. They are also proportioned to be "fairly chunky" like traditional putty sculpted minis. 
      (Picture of other manufactures products for comparison purposes only)
      Comparison  The Hawkmen are sculpted digitally and will be produced in Resin as the lighter weight allows for more dynamic poses and makes the flying poses more stable on a stand. The minis will be supplied with plastic bases and flying stands where appropriate.
      To start with there are 10 designs available, half in flight and half on the ground with more designs, optional extras, specials and exclusives available to unlock if they are popular and the campaign progresses.
      Hawkmen in Flight  
      Grounded Hawkmen  
      Stretch Goal Preview  If the initial target is reached then as a thank you backers who pledge £30 (Pick a Wing) or more will receive an exclusive Kickstarter mini, that won't be included in the retail range. More to come later.
      KS Exclusive when funding reached Manufacture and Shipping will be from the UK and will ship worldwide. Shipping costs are currently an estimate and will be fully calculated after the KS ends as every backer could have different requirements depending on chosen options and location. It will be upfront based on the Royal Mail's Pricing (http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder) + a small packaging charge with options for regular or tracked shipping.
      A quick note on the Video
      All images and visual elements made by Cold War Minis, the soundtrack is lifted from the 1934 movie "The Evil Mind" under Creative Commons as it is now in the public domain, for anyone interested the full movie is available to view here

      New Kickstarter starting in November
       
       
      Mythic Games aims at creating and developing high quality games, combining great mechanics massively play tested and demoed in public with spectacular visuals and miniatures designed by world renowned artists.
      Monolith (click) instantly became a reference in the world of high quality miniatures board games with Conan, which raised over $3.3 million on Kickstarter.
      Monolith and Mythic Games joined forces to co-publish Mythic Battles: Pantheon, which will soon hit Kickstarter
       
      Looks like you control a God (giant sized) and its faction (human sized).
       
      Minis look nice

      Who Are we?
      Antediluvian Miniatures are new company producing an ever expanding range of 28mm miniatures for the war gamer, collector and role player. You can see our existing miniatures at www.antediluvianminiatures.com
      The Plan.
      We would like to add to our ever expanding range of unique and unusual figures by producing this range of Medieval Devils and Demons inspired by the freakish illustrated manuscripts of the medieval period! 
      These figures are sculpted by Andrew May ( Demons ), Ian Mountain ( Witch ), and Jo Brumby ( Terrence the Goat ). We think these will be great fun and an unusual addition for fantasy wargames, skirmish and role playing games. There are all 28mm scale, cast in metal- they will come with plastic bases supplied.

      If the campaign goes well we have some extra characters and a potential terrain feature we'll add in as stretch goals and freebies.

      More details of the pledges and locked figures are below.
      What do you get. 
      all the are figures metal cast and supplied with bases. Figures are 28mm scale.
