The Winter Adventurers

Recommended Posts

 

 

The High Wizard of Midlam has received disturbing reports that a small group of 'adventurers' have headed north, to the forbidden and foreboding Lost Mountains.  These distant mountains have long been a source of dread and legend to the people of Midlam.  Once home to the great dwarven people, now thought abandoned, the Lost Mountains have been under the grip of a magical winter for endless years.  It is feared, that should anyone travel there, they may bring some terrible evil upon Midlam.

The High Wizard has sent a small but dedicated group to pursue this 'Winter Party' and force them to return.  He has hand-selected a group of his greatest wizards, while the Baron of Midlam has assigned some of his most trusted scouts and warriors to guide and guard them on their search.

Midlam Miniatures are pleased to present a collection of nine 28mm scale figures, for all of your winter and snow-based Fantasy games.  There is a male and female warrior/scout, female dwarf, male and female halfling, male wizard and apprentice, and female wizard and apprentice, all in winter clothing.

I think this time they got me ... never backed one of theirs before because ... I really don't know why I didn't. I always liked a couple of the miniatures ... but this time, I like a lot.

I'm gonna need you guys to invent teleportation so we can play Frostgrave.

 

Also, these minis are excellent.

I hadn't heard of them before, so it's nice to know that they're good at the Kickstarter thing.

I've always been impressed with Midlam.  Great models at great price points.

Frostgravy!

I especially like the male Halfling and female Dwarf. They make me think of the most recent issue of "Rat Queens", though their gear is a little more sensible than caps and scarves tossed over standard armor.

That female Halfling .... thinking about putting a bottle into her hand so it looks like she is pouring some vodka ...


Oooh.  A St. Bernard would make a great Ranger companion.

With a name like Brunhild I'm guessing they were thinking Nordic, but she looks like she'd make a beautiful Inuk warrior.

I have backed a couple of their KS's earlier, and will definately back again. 

Good communication, delivery in time, high quality, crisp castings of excellent sculpts. Great stuff, A+ all around.

      Launches Oct 24! I'm very excited, and if you aren't a Commie Mutant Traitor, you will be too!
       
      I do have a lot of questions, card based what and frantic action what? Still, since I Paranoia BLOG for goodness sakes, I will be checking this out, and will probably get it regardless of whether I ditch my old books for the new ones.

      Kickstarter has launched:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806316071/conan
      <<<MOD>>>


      From the Conan facebook page(https://www.facebook.com/monolithedition):

      "Happy new year everybody !
      We have a date! Conan on Kickstarter will launch on January 12th, at 1:00 p.m. on the East Coast of the United States (UTC-5 ), 10:00 a.m. on the West Coast (UTC- 8), 6.00 p.m. in the UK (UTC + 00 ) and thus 7:00 p.m. in France (UTC + 1). There will be early birds, so check it out!"

      Here is a link to the original thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/55443-conan/?hl=conan

      And the most recent video from the facebook page, showing a game being played, as well as several of the minis (some of them are shown in closeup a couple minutes in):

      Going Native: New World Monsters - New Kickstarter Campaign that will launch 2/1/15 and will last until 3/8/15

      Throughout the folklore of the native peoples around the world, there is always something that roams beyond what is known and safe. Be it a shadow in the mists, a form in the tree line or a shape in the night the mind creates monsters and creatures to explain them. These explanations lead to stories, stories lead to songs and songs become legends. These monsters of legend take on the shape of the fears of the people that tell the stories. The Greco-Romans tell stories of misshaped cannibalistic demigods, the people of northern Europe have sagas of giants that live in the ice and dwarfs that live in the mountains and in the Far East there are tails of club wielding demons and dragons that swim through the air like a fish moves through water. The native cultures of the Americas and the islands of the Pacific also have these monsters that have been formed by fear, but with few gods, creatures of hope and courage took shape to bring balance to the world.
       
      In the realms of games and models, the monsters and spirits of Europe, Egypt, and the growing popularity of Asian Culture has led to these subjects being well covered by several model companies. Paymaster Games is addressing the lack of Native American and Polynesian models on the market place with our Going Native line of models and games, this includes the spirits and monsters of their myths and legends.
       
      About the Project
       
      The Spirit Beasts for the Going Native line of models are gaming miniatures set in the 28mm scale. These models will be cast in either white metal and/or high quality resin (depending on the model) by the brilliant casters at Valiant Enterprises Limited. All of the models will be supplied with a new style plastic base that will be appropriate for the size of the model – 30mm base for small models, 40mm base for medium models and 50mm base for the largest models.
       
      25% Discount off Retail Price
       
      Since many of the models featured in this Kickstarter Campaign already have pre-production models (Greens) and/ or molds, Paymaster Games can offer a fair discount to all of the products we are bringing to this campaign.
       
      Free limited edition Ai Apaec the Decapitator model
      At certain pledge levels, Paymaster Games is offering the mad god of the Moche people, Ai Apaec the Decapitator, as a free Kickstarter Exclusive model to certain pledge levels. Ai Apaec is a large sized model and is currently being sculpted by the talented Leandro Ventic. Since the pledge levels with the free Ai Apaec will be limited, we will offer the Decapitator as an add-on once the campaign reaches $8,000.
       
       
      The Models
       
      The following models will be offered as part of this Kickstarter Campaign. The prices are listed next to the model or kit.
       
      Small Models –
      Deer Woman - $5
      Nagual - $5
      Monster Hunter - $5
       
      Medium Models –
      Ahuizotl Otter - $10
      Mo’o, Guardian Gecko - $10
      Malku Condor Spirit - $15
      Capelobo - $10
       
      Large Models –
      Uktena the Great Horned Serpent - $25
      Ahklut the Orca Wolf - $20
      Sasquatch - $20
      Piasa Bird - $35
       
      Since there are a number of monsters in this campaign, I think it would be more than fair to offer a Dungeon crawl team made up on some of the models in the Going Native line. All of these models together would normally retail for $38, for this Campaign this Dungeon Crawl team will cost $30. Here is your team. –
      Tank – Tlacateccatl, Aztec War chief – Paladin
      DPS – Nagual – Spell Caster
      DPS – Monster Hunter – Hunter/ranger
      A yet to be announced hunter pet.
      DPS – Nacom, Mayan War chief - Warrior
      Heal – Kallawaya Doctor – Priest
