Is the cauldron in the Kitchen part of the fireplace, or a separate piece?

 

My witch can use a cauldron.::):

It's a separate piece, but it looks like the firewood underneath it is part of the cauldron (though I don't know whether they come attached).

Last 12 hours!

 

Some backers did a recount and the Docks set now has 120 pieces plus a game mat, not 88, for $75. The display area is the same (the pier pieces were separated from the dock tiles).

I'm still in for just the docks set but I'm expecting to add things through the post kickstarter backerkit.

 

Some nice stuff here. Too bad it didn't catch on with more backers.

I am torn on that. Less backers means quicker turnaround time. Sometimes too much success is a bad thing. This way, maybe we are closer to another KS campaign than we would have been.

 

Also, I hope that I hope my wallet can recover a bit before the backerkit goes live. A longer wait is better for me. 

 

As of now, I am in for docks and the portal.

Talae, yes, they've hinted that they might be fulfilling early. They started making some of the minis before campaign even ended and I think the painter is already painting some things.

 

Adventurescapes 2 is already in the works and should be launched in a few months. At one point, I think they mentioned a December/January time frame, but I'd expect they'll probably wait until Adventurescapes 1 is fulfilled before launching.

I am hoping that in Adventurescapes 2 all their pieces can be made of their stronger material,  I was very impressed with the material video and would gladly pay for all the accessories and tiles to be made nearly indestructible.  Plus if they separate the tiles and accessories I can spend more on what I want with out getting more of what I don't want more of.

Hey guys,

 

Yes we are underway to get this one turned around hopefully ahead of schedule!  We are taking a lot of what we have learned here and will be changing the format of our adventurescapes line.  instead of tiles and accessories its going to be more about "micro encounters" much smaller sized kits.  A lot of the suggestions provided during the campaign will be used as the basis for our initial encounters. we will also have the complete kit, and just the true accessories also broken out. 

 

Current guess is the next campaign would launch around march, we need time to get this one fulfilled and really flush out the concept.  Thanks again for the support, and feedback!

Looks like PM invites went out today. The window closes late January.

 

I need to decide if I submit now for what I backed for (just the docks) or if I wait for January to add the shark, portal, and telporation circle thing. Decisions...

This is a real growth and learning campaign for us! We have just trippled the size of our casting department to handle the anticipated volume!  We have also produced our first large scale 100mm x 100mm piece.

 

Lots of firsts for us here! I think I heard the other Kevin cursing me about something like 18,000 dock tiles being produced lol

 

All updates on the kickstarter are always public and I like to post fun pictures etc fairly often.

 

We cut this one a bit to close and the good news is we covered our hard expenses, but any dream of profit is out the window.  That being said you will see us back on kickstarter at the beginning of the year as our unpainted pledges start shipping out the door!  I think we're figuring out our place in this ecosystem and how we are going to morph our offering!

 

Thanks again for the amazing support and encouragement! 

 

Kevin

I ended up going docks, and the two portals.

 

I hope to get the shark and beach tiles at retail.

      About
      Welcome to The Land and the world of Spitfyre, our exciting game of aerial warfare in a fantasy world. Enter a world where Dwarves and Orcs fly giant creatures and arm them with bombs and machine guns to continue their millennia long struggles... Come fight in the skies of Spitfyre and see if you can reign supreme over The Land!
      Spitfyre is a fun 'Historo-Fantasy' miniature aerial wargame in which 10mm scale miniatures are used to depict the everyday struggles of standard fantasy races such as Orcs and Dwarves fight out battles with 20th century weaponry.
      We are keeping this Kickstarter very simple with three basic pledge levels. The key one is 'Pilot' where pledgers will receive a discounted copy of the core game and ALL stretch goals added in FREE of charge.
      THE TARGET - £1000
      Spitfyre - the core game The target goal is to produce the core game which will include the rulebook, a flight of three 10mm scale resin Orc Spitfyre wyverns, a flight of four 10mm scale polyurethane resin Dwarf War-Eagles and seven flying bases.
      STRETCH GOAL I - £1500
      If we reach Stretch Goal I, all Pilot backers will have one polyurethane resin 10mm scale Dwarf KampfGrier 87 vulture dive bomber and flying base added to their pledge for free and the rules will be extended to include dive bombing.
       More Stretch Goals to come...

      About
      Project Background:
      With every project we embark on, we always set out to make top quality products that you just can't find elsewhere. We enjoy pushing the boundaries of everyday items and turn ordinary objects into extraordinary objects. We typically like to work with Copper & Silver, but in order to form these objects, we first have to make a forming die. In order to make it be able to form these metals, we have to use a very strong, special steel that will never bend or dis-form. To achieve this, we have to use a ultra strong metal alloy, Tool Steel.  
      The Strongest Dice Ever Made!!!
      We want to set out and push the boundaries a little and create a dice that you truly will never be able to destroy! A dice that will put all other to shame and will literally be able to "crush" the competition! Is it really necessary to create a dice that you would never be able to destroy, it's debatable. But one could then argue that any dice besides a white plastic injected dice is not necessary either! I for one find the dice I use while playing games helps emerge me into the game and even give me that added confidence. Imagine taking these dice to your game night with your friends and "rolling" them out! Knowing that your dice is no match for your opponents, makes it half the fun and boosts excitement for the game! 
      Designs:
      We currently have three designs to choose from, Traditional Pips, Dragon, and Skull designs. Each of these designs have The Copper Kingdom shield logo as the one side. You may choose from any of these three styles and if you're getting multiple dice, you may mix and match styles to make up your custom dice collection! Style choices will be collected on the survey.
      Three Style of Choose From: Skulls, Pips & Dragons How The Dice Are Made:
      In order to create these dice, a combination of precision machining as well as hands on labor is needed. I will be commissioning a local machine shop to create the tool steel cubes. Once I have the special tool steel cubes, I will be individually engraving each dice. Each side will be individually carved, having to be hand turned six times (one for each side). The process to carving all six sides of the dice will take almost an hour per dice due to the strength of the steel and the small size of the engraver in order to create the detail. Unlike other materials that can allow the images to be stamped or formed with the designs, this steel won't allow it. From this point each dice will need to go into a special oven in order to harden the high end tool steel to its full strength. They will get heated to 1750 degrees for an hour, followed by a series of controlled lower step down temps to make the metal fully treated and as hard as possible. The final step will be sand blasting and polishing the dice to the desired finish. 
      Hardening & Tempering Process for these Dice takes 24 hours! How Strong Are These Dice?
      I will be having these dice made from a high quality Tool Steel. This is the same type of steel that the US Mint uses to stamp coins and is able to withstand hundreds of tons of pressure before it bends or breaks. The steel dice start out only a little stronger than most other steels, but after the designs are carved into the faces, they are forged into an oven at almost 1800 degrees! This process of heat treating and conditioning the special steel takes over 18 hours! Once this process is done however, the steel is incredibly strong. While it may not be be 100% indestructible, for all practical purposes it is. You can drop them, smash them, try to crush them in a high powered press, run over then with your car, hit them with a sledge hammer, and they will still hardly show a scratch!

      It ain't the first Flash Gordon RPG. It ain't the first Rocketships and Rayguns RPG. In fact, it's not completely an RPG; you need the Savage Worlds rules to play. But durned if I'm not interested, and they're talking miniatures for sale as well. This is one I'd like to see do pretty well; I'm in...

      KICKSTARTER: Flash Gordon for Savage Worlds!

      Not sure if I'm pledging for it, but here're the greens from the sculptor from their previous Wizards Conclave project, and current WW project.
       
      "The idea for this kickstarter struck us during our previous wizards project when our excellent sculptor produced a fantastic ice golem, rather than have yet another add-on in a kickstarter that had already gotten big enough we decided to start another project. As the previous kickstarter is well underway and this idea wouldn't have made sense any other time of year we decided to launch it as a Christmas special. "

      ABOUT THE PROJECT
      Aeon Trespass: Nymphs is a beautiful series of pin-up style miniatures inspired by Greek mythology and the Science Fantasy genre. Each Nymph is a highly detailed resin miniature in the 32mm scale – perfect for painters, collectors and wargamers alike – and comes with a scenic base, an art print and a hand-numbered authenticity note, everything enclosed in hand-stamped craft box. This Kickstarter is a limited collector’s run, which means the miniatures may not be available outside the campaign or, if they are available, they will be released as an unnumbered Encore edition.
      WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?  
      We are a group of passionate professionals, eager to leave our mark upon the miniatures hobby world. With this first limited collection we wanted to make sure our message was clear: we strive for original content of the highest quality. Our pin-up models were inspired by Greek paintings and sculptures. We’ve taken care to be inclusive, choosing to go for the varied natural body types over photoshopped magazine cover artificial beauty. Bottom line: we want you to be satisfied and awed by the hard work of our fantastic artists and sculptors. 
      WHAT IS AEON TRESPASS?  
      Art doesn’t exist in a void. It needs context to be fully realized and appreciated. The great paintings and sculptures are as much a fruit of the artist’s labor, as they are of the times they were created in. So too, we wanted to root our Nymphs in a world that is more tangible and ‘lived-in’. We love world-building and game design; cool giant monsters, grizzled anti-heroes and epic tales of adventure. All that – and much more! – awaits you in the world and game of Aeon Trespass. 
      The story takes places many years after Olympus fell - an event ominously called the Eschaton - when mortals have to deal with both, an unchecked technological progress and a return to more primal beliefs that precede even the old gods. It is a dark, dangerous world, stalked by kaiju-like monsters and visited by otherworldly entities, but one not without hope: courage, valor, loyalty and a penchant for beauty, they all shine the brightest in the pitch black of night.  
      NYMPHS
      The Nymphs are a group of powerful entities that sprang into being after the old gods of Olympus died. Their motivations are unknown and their methods inscrutable. What is known, is that they like to play with the fates of mortals... Below you will find a short description of each Nymph and their place in the world.
      This is just a small foray into that world: a wetting of your feet, if you will. Inspired by the great storytelling works of Dark Souls, Malazan Book of the Fallen and Kingdom Death, we’ve sprinkled small pieces of lore into those sections that will inform you further on the world of Aeon Trespass and point into the direction of its mysteries and secrets.
