 Just not sure I really wanna spend over 40 for something that will probably just sit in the box on the shelf.

 

That's poor rational....I have 1,000's of unpainted minis sitting around! Lol :lol:

 

I will probably get in on this for four minis. Three of the exclusives (I am not a fun of the Nancy Steelpunch one) and yet to decide on the fourth. I took a class at Adepticon where we used busts and I like the change of scale, so this looks like a good opportunity....to paint another bust -or- add to the piles of unpainted minis. :rolleyes:

Beautiful looking figs, but sadly they got trumped by a blown head gasket....

Cool looking stuff.  Did some price comparison between their online store and the KS offerings for the "extras" and the a tiny bit more expensive through the KS, though shipping is included.  The 32mm pieces are cheaper through the KS though.  And with them throwing in the what will likely be at least 2 free 32mm pieces, I may just have to grab one or 2...  Have it on remind by my wife keeps telling me we need to have a second look at the household budget...  :ph34r:

 

EDIT: not all the 32mm pieces are priced the same on their site so for some the KS is a deal, for the others, it's a couple Euro's more, like the bigger ones, likely to cover shipping.  Still cheaper than paying for the shipping to Canukistan!

A head gasket doesn't cost more than one of those busts... 

(Been there, done it, has the old parts to show for it... )

 

I already have Nancy Steelpunch in 35mm scale, so don't really see the need for her in other scales.

I'm backing for now, mostly because getting one bust with (so far) three extra figs seems like a good deal.

I agree.  Have it on remind for now but will likely hop in for a single bust at the end, just to get the 3 other figs, hopefully more by the time we're done.

Also, the sweet magnet / bottle opener! :)

Newest news is that if they get to the 15% off coupon for a year, the American reseller's going to honor the discount, which is pretty nice if we get to that point.

 

How good is that Steampunk in miniature book?  I'm tempted to add it to my pledge, since shipping's going to be free.

I'm in for all 8 plus the book and bases.  I'm really hoping that we make the 15% coupon for a year!  It may be interesting to compare between the Spanish and American site, because right now with the Euro where it is, the base cost of the figures in Spain is significantly less expensive than the US site.  Have to play with it and see how it evens out with the shipping...

Their last answer about Jessica and a weapon arm seems a little confusing, " @Bogdan Papuse In this exclusive version for the KS is not possible, we are sorry. We already have a version with the arm of the weapon. Thank you for your comments." It sounds like the KS exclusive busts will be released later with different arms? Or is this just a translation error on their part.

Really?  You must not look at prices for figures this size, cause the price they're charging for these is actually pretty reasonable.  At 25% they'd be ~$10, and that's what most of the boutique 28mm figures are going for (Darksword/Bombshell etc).

Ok, I surrendered. I'm in for 2. Mostly because I do really like the idea of Painting both Bridgette LaFayette, and Jessica Thunderhawk. 

 

Though I am curious to the possible translation issue @Splurch mentioned. I would be more interested in Jessica Thunderhawk with her right weapon arm in the bust.

      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!

        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.
