5 core ones. 2-3 more planned as stretch goals. Then weapon and equipment swaps so they can customized a few ways for more variation 1f603.png:D (musician, and standard also)
Should be able to get a convincing army from them. 1f60a.png^_^

 

Thanks Ty, our thinking exactly, 13 different miniatures is going to be faster dispatch than 130 different miniatures 1f609.png;)

any friends/family who are interested in minis who could be persuaded to share on your behalf and like zealot's page?

 

(worth a try as it's still going to generate more publicity which it the aim)

I have no real idea concerning the price of the minotaurs, but 4 adventurers for 15Pounds (in resin) does not seem to be that expensive (never thought I'd say that).

 

I knew I had something to compare ... Heresy's Manbane the Minotaur is 15Pounds and depending on your taste, the Zealot minotaurs should be easily worth one pound more.

Man I'm really disappointed I was really looking forward to this almost as much as Bones 4!  But $100 (with shipping) for 4 minis is way out of my price range!  Even for one is almost $30 by the time  I pay for shipping  And I'm not really into the adventures. 

 

Not that I'm saying anything bad about Zealot it's my problem not theirs. But I can get over 100 Bones for that!

Adventurers and prisoners (locked stretch goal) look fun to paint.

That's exactly what I'll be going for ... adventurers and prisoners. Europeans have to bite a bullet when getting something from the US (Bones 2: I paid $50 for shipping and $50 for taxes alone ... Bones 4: Shipping is cheaper, but now 20% VAT is added). The other way round, if the company does not use its own money to make shipping to the US more affordable because it is a huge market, folks from the US feel a bit of the same sting.

Female minotaur is READY!

Posted by Alexei Popovici (Sculptor)

It was a while since our last update on sculpts.

We are happy to present you guys final version of the first female minotaur from our army! So now you can see what's the difference between WIP's (work in progress) images what you will get in the end :)

I would like to mention here as sculptor, those WIP's that we will reveal soon are mostly the direction in what we are going with the sculpt, like really basic vision. During polishing process, pose and details of equipment may change , so please don't treat WIP's as final product :)

Our next target is SHAMAN, stay tuned, concept will be revealed soon! :)

As usual we are happy to hear your vision and propositions :)

Raise the banners for the horde!

I like the sleeping one. Part of me wonders if there'll be an angry awake version (I haven't bothered to check to see if the details all match up with one of the existing ones - I think a few come close but there's no exact fit yet).

That sleeping minotaur looks great. :) Would be cool to have an awaken one, too. :)

      Text Link because picture is a bit too non-PG.
       
      This is a miniature set featuring the Goblin King being carried around by his burly orc goons, as he flaunts his girls and his gold. The set fits well into any 28mm heroic to 32mm fantasy miniature setting. This set can be easily be the center piece to any goblin army.

      Currently on Kickstarter for the next two days!

      I got in on the original release of this game and it is very cool. It's like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure board game. It is loosely scenario based, but there is a fair amount of randomness and replay-ability in each scenario. I have played the first scenario four times and have yet to win, but had an entirely different experience each time. The most interesting thing to me is the action/health/timing mechanic. There is a serious economy of action in the game and if you aren't very careful with your choices, you will definiltey die on the continent.
       
      Sadly, the production costs on the game are astronomical. At over 1,600 cards, they have said that they will likely never make it to full retail, so apart from this KS and potentially further private sale, we may never see it again. This KS is running until Thu, October 19 2017.

      I'm not familiar with this company, and this project is a relaunching of a previously aborted kickstarter, but I thought the ideas for ship and the trees looked particularly interesting.

      About this project
       
       
      Trash Runners
      Their glamorous mission? Delivering precious tons of household refuse across the barren earth of outworld.
      Form up your posse for adventure as you head across the desolate wastelands. Face down rival gangs trying to steal your cargo, barbaric tribes defending ancestral hunting grounds, anarchic revolutionaries raging against the machine and crazed enforcers wielding deadly judgement.
      This is the world of Factious Waste, a cinematic tabletop skirmish game which blends strategy with narrative roleplay. Factious Waste is set in a near-future dystopia, drawing on the traditions of classic comics and action movies from the 80s and giving them a twist for the 21st century.
      Natural resources have run dry, industry has collapsed, global borders have been shaken by forced migration. The world is divided between the tiny but affluent inworld, comfortable home of the tech-elite, and the brutal wastelands of outworld. Outworld is controlled by two powerful entities- GenPower, the corporation holding the monopoly on electrical production, and the ReFrat, mobsters who handle the dirty but essential task of waste management and recycling. Caught in the midst of their struggle for superiority are the NeoPrimitives, tribes fighting to protect a natural world which has long since given up the ghost. Revolutionary Luddites are former slaves from the treadmills of GenPower, now attempting to bring down the corporation and liberate their fellow workers. Artisan Collectives scour the desert wastes for rare materials to make bespoke goods for the inworld market and exiled former cyber-cops vent their deranged notions of law on the hapless wastelanders. Through the chaos ride the Trash Runners, vying amongst one another for the most lucrative contracts, hauling the refuse of inworld back for reprocessing and hunting for undiscovered treasures buried deep in the wastes.
       
      Following previous successful Kickstarters with The Woods and Legends of British Steampunk, Oakbound are returning to bring you Factious Waste, the second of Oakbound's settings to run off the SystemMech game system. Factious Waste is the world the rules were designed for back in 2014. Since then we have been playtesting and refining and are finally ready to launch this cinematic sandbox skirmish. Players build their own posses of up to 12 figures which grow, gain skills, equipment, injuries and character traits, control territories and fulfil contracts over a series of games.
      A scrap convoy heads out across the desolate red deserts of outworld.
      SystemMech is Oakbound Studio’s narrative miniatures roleplay system. The rules for SystemMech are the same whether your games take place in the depths of space, a realm of high fantasy or across a gritty, post-apocalyptic landscape. The MOST IMPORTANT RULE: Tell a good story! As a skirmish-scale tabletop miniatures game, SystemMech is unique in two respects. Firstly it uses no dice rolls or decks of cards. The element of uncertainty in the game lies in the way players’ models interact together. Secondly and more importantly, SystemMech is designed for playing out encounters on the tabletop which are not a simple matter of ‘smash and grab’ or ‘fight to the death’. Combat is certainly an element, but subterfuge, coercion and exploration of the game environment are just as (if not more) important than killing off the opposition.
      Simple concepts: The principles of the game fit on a couple of pages. Characters have six core statistics which combine to affect the outcome of their actions. Characters with high Decisiveness activate before those with a lower value and models can perform a number of actions during their activation equal to their Stamina rating. Models can target actions at elements they can perceive- dictated by their Perception range and a Field of Vision template aligned with their base.
      Flexible action: The majority of the rules section is made up of six action tables: Movement, Relational (interaction with environment and other models), Shooting, Grappling, Driving and Reacting to the actions of other models. This allows characters to do anything from jumping between buildings to programming machinery, interrogating enemy models to high speed car chases. All in a concise and easy-to-reference format. We've even produced a super-slim reference booklet so you don't need to carry the large book around with you.
      Strategy and Narrative: With twenty five scenarios included in the rulebook, a strong emphasis on objectives and a comprehensive campaign system Factious Waste instinctively plays out as an engrossing narrative. Because there are no dice rolls involved players have to work their posses to their characters' strengths and plan their strategy carefully. With combat only one element of the game the stealth, leadership and charisma of your characters all play a crucial role in achieving your objectives.
      Fast-paced gaming: A Factious Waste scenario typically takes between 1 and 1.5 hours, allowing a short 3-scenario narrative to be played in an evening. Games usually take place on a 3' square board so can be played where space is at a premium. Posse creation is simple 3-step process and the War for 1984 and Faction Packs come with pre-generated  posses allowing you to get started right away.
      A mid-game car crash results in a spectacular pile-up. Converted toy vehicles and Games Workshop miniatures joined official Factious Waste figures for this skirmish.
       
       
      Oakbound's miniatures are hand-sculpted and cast in metal from vulcanised rubber moulds in the finest traditions of the hobby. The Factious Waste miniatures are cast in hard, lead-free white metal which allows the finest details of the figures to come out clean and crisp.
      The average size of these models is 30mm from the sole of the foot to the top of the head, allowing them to fit with both old school '28mm heroic' and more modern 30-35mm miniatures. We appreciate that there are an enormous array of games available (we play a lot ourselves) and want these models to be as compatible as possible with other ranges so whether you're playing Rogue Trader or Infinity, original or new Necromunda you will be able to fit these models into your games.
      Each of the Faction Packs have been put together to give you a particular 'flavour'- boiler suited workers, native wastelanders, pulp mobsters and armoured enforcers.

      About this project
      The Third Android Collective.
      Welcome to the launch of The Third Android Collective.
      This campaign, if successful, will see the expansion of the Androids and Robots range of miniatures produced by Blind Beggar Miniatures,
      This Third Collective of Androids will see the extension of the 'Andy' Series, with a new selection of models which fulfil even more roles in society.
       The 'Andy' Series
      The 'Andy' Series are based on an original design first conceived and created by Andym Industries (the MK1).
      This original design was later acquired by the BB Corporation where further research and development saw this pattern evolve into a range of models with differing specifications.
      There are currently thirteen different models in production in the 'Andy' Series, This campaign will, hopefully, see the introduction of several more.
       The New Models
      The new models that the BB Corporation would like to put into production are shown here:
       
      Please note that the MK 14 is a two-part miniature.
      The First and Second Collective miniatures..
      Here are the miniatures from the First and Second Collective campaigns.
      The Original Android Collective, featuring Mk's 1-7,
       The Second Android Collective, featuring Mk's 8-13 (and also includes 'Barker', the Android dog, not pictured).
       
      The Pledge Levels.
      Take a look at the Pledge Levels on the right to see the options available for acquiring some 'Andy's of your own. You will also find the option of getting hold of some of the earlier models from the previous campaigns.
