Bruegelburg – A day at the fair

Recommended Posts

Their last Kickstarter (Dwarves) was full of great, characterful sculpts and delivered very much on time. This here seems a worthy successor (look, Beagle, no Dwarves):




Balalaika Maiden: The Gardariki Trade Caravans always include entertainers, poets and the like as well as the more pecuniary-inclined. When the day’s work is done, they string up a tune to entertain at the banquet table.


Set 01 – Market Women: Although the actual Fair focuses on the trade of commodities and precious goods from near and far, supplies for daily life in the bustling town is provided by the peasants and small craftsmen from the city’s bailiwick. In many cases, it is the women who man the stalls and wander the market square proffering their goods.


Set 02 – No time to chat!: As the market opens, there is always a jostle for the best spots. No time for a friendly chat then, although once the hunting grounds have been staked out, call and chatter fills the various market areas.


Set 03 – Georg von Würstenberg, Master of the Butchers’ Guild: Formerly a mere butcher, Georg von Würstenberg made his way to the top of the prestigious Butchers’ Guild, his paunch equalling his influence and power. Some say that, along the way, various rivals ended up in his product, but not to his face! Wherever he goes, he is announced by his herald, Peter Pfefferbeis.


Set 04 – Guardsmen of the Butchers’ Guild: The Guilds of Bruegelburg always vie for the prime spot in the City Council, and many are not above using nefarious means to advance their own position. Hence, prominent Guild members are escorted by armed guards, who also make up militias policing various areas of the town where the Town Guards cannot or will not go.


Set 05 – Patricians: The richest and most powerful merchants of Bruegelburg are commonly called “Patricians”, and it is they who head the various factions in the City Council. As the Fair opens, they can be seen ambulating across the Grand Hall, sampling wares and making deals.


Set 06 – Country Nobles: The City of Bruegelburg is surrounded by various small villages and fiefs, some loyal to regional potentates, some allied with the city. The heads of these fiefs invariably visit the city for the great Fair to see and be seen.


Set 07 – Paupers of Bruegelburg: At the bottom of the social ladder, a teeming mass of paupers and beggars, pickpockets and thugs makes a living in the meaner parts of town. As the market opens, they venture forth to profit from charity and carelessness, respectively. 


Set 08 – A Word in Jest: Entertainment is a key aspect of the Market Day, and Jesters from near and far are happy to provide. Just don’t forget to guard your purse as you watch their antics on the stage! 


Set 09 – A jesting Tjost: An increasingly popular pageant in recent years is the “Jesters’ Tjost”, a parody of the grand tournaments that hail back to the great days of knights long past, with the entertainers striving for the most amusing way to “unhorse” each other and poke fun at their betters. 


Set 10 – Days of Childhood: Market Day is a welcome diversion from the often dull and dreary life of kids in Bruegelburg, and gaggles of children can be seen everywhere.

These are nice, but after splurging vast sums of cash on the Carnevale kickstarter today I think I'm well and truly out, I even pulled my Bones 4 pledge :-(

Ah, Bruegelburg - a great place to visit, but you really wouldn't want to live there!


Very happy to see this - but so, so badly timed as far as my finances are concerned.


The Auld Grump  beautiful miniatures, of less than beautiful people.

Totally understand ... there are 3 projects at the moment that I really want to back (dropped to $1 for CMON's Song of Ice and Fire, find it a bit lacking .. but want to back Bones, this project here and Darcy Perry's Dungeons of Doom).


First stretch goal almost unlocked ... free for pledges of 50 Euros or more:

Is this from the Miniatures line associated with LAF? (Lead Adventures Forum) I remember they have a lot of similar looking villagers.

These look good but the pricing is off. 2 minis for $9 or 10 for $50? Am I missing something?

It's not per mini, it's per set

Dwarvenranger: 10 For 50, but with the limited Balalaika-Player and certain stretch goals. If you only get one set, no stretch goals, no Balalaika.

But yeah, if you want less than 5 sets (and the stretch goals do not entice you), the $9 per set are probably the way to go.


TGP: Yes, it's Lead Adventure.

      Interesting and focused KS for skulls and other bones (not Reaper Bones!) in resin. You get a fair amount for the price.

      About this project
      Hello again!  
      About a year and a half ago you all helped bring Fantasy RPG coasters to life.  Since then I've still been making sawdust, developing new products and taking the coasters on the road. While exhibiting at conventions (GenCon, GameHole Con, GaryCon) the question I had the most was "Do you have anything for Cthulhu?"  To which I had to reply "Cthulhu F'htaghn!" and also "Not yet."
      Well now I've got a few and if it pleases The Great Old Ones we'll make quite a few more!
      Why Kickstarter... again?
      Artwork is expensive and there's so much in the realm of Cthulhu RPGs that can be brought out with your help.   I also need a new table saw, the tentacle-laden heart of any workshop, which is where the initial goal will be going!
      I'll be partnering again with Dan Warren, who you may know from those awesome Steve Lichman campaigns.  Dan has worked on a ton of stuff and I'm delighted to be working with him again to bring these maddening coasters to your game table. 
      About the coasters
      All of the coasters I make are made from solid hardwood and are about 3.75" in diameter by a quarter inch thick.  They've got 1/16" felt on the bottom to provide a nice cushion and not scratch any of your beautiful tables!
      New Products & Add-ons
      Since the last campaign, I've made a couple new products that have been well received.  I'm offering them at a discount through this campaign.  They'll be Add-ons to any backers pledge.  When inputting your pledge amount add an extra amount to cover whatever the Add-On is that you'd like.  After the campaign you'll be able to manage your add-ons with Backerkit. 
      The dice boxes are 5.5" in diameter and work well for dice storage and rolling, and they fit perfectly behind a Keeper/GM screen. The lid is held in place with four magnets that defy the natural order with their strength.  It's quite tough to pry the lid off, but a simple twist will open them right up.  The suede flocking on the inside is red or green.
       Warning - The magnets in any of my products are very strong and can be dangerous, especially if swallowed.  They're not toys and shouldn't be given to children.  Please see the manufacturers guidelines.  I've not had any installed magnets come out of my products, but I thought I'd mention it. 
      Do you love some of the artwork enough to put a huge 13.5" diameter wall coaster on your wall? This is for you!

      About this project
      Pledge to fund The Assault Group's transfer of five 28mm Landsknecht Zombie miniatures, from White Knight's Miniature Imperium.
      With two large Kickstarters under our belt, and with a least two more to come to complete the transfer of White Knight's private range, we looked at what we still have left to release; Sea Elves, Dwarf Bear Knights on foot, the Land Griffons, all exciting stuff, but we have these great zombie minis, that didn't really fit in anywhere with anything else...
      ...grr... But, as these are excellent minis, and well-worth bringing fully to as large an audience as possible, we have decided to run them as a tiny (miniature even) Kickstarter all of their own.
      As the low Fund Goal indicates, we don't anticipate that this a large or difficult undertaking; the minis are made, the master mould prepared, and all we really need to do is make a new Production mould and cast the numbers required of this Kickstarter.
      ...ahhhh... Pledge Levels.
      Pledge £15, for one of each of the 5 different 28mm size white metal models. Pledge £45, for five of each of the 5 different 28mm size white metal models. ...roar...  
      Stretch Goals.
      £1000+ Add a Special Addition Freebie miniature, to all Pledges at £45+ £2000+ Add a Limited Edition Landsknecht Zombie all Pledges. (more details to follow)
      Mini Size.
      Scale shot. As you can see these are large 28mm, or 30mm model.

      Dear Friends, I wanted to invite you to join me for a new musical adventure, "Dawnstar: Eternity"! The music features cinematic and fantasy stylistics, and this album is the third in the Dawnstar series, which I have been conjuring inspired by astronomy and The Elder Scrolls during the past year. I hope that you may join me on this quest for musical exploration as this new album is inspired also by several art and science disciplines. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to make the production possible, and I hope that you may consider joining this new project and enjoy being a part of it. Thank you very much for supporting and inspiring me! Julia <3
