I'm glad to hear that! It's so good to hear people's experiences with the company before I back a kickstarter. Reading through the forums here has already saved me from some potentially unwise investments. Now I can feel better making my wallet cry :p

In my opinion, their minotaurs look pale in comparison with the really epic minotaurs from Zealot miniatures that recently ran their own kickstarter. And some of the design of the minotaurs look a bit odd (for example, how are the leg armour worn, the cloth running under and over the shoulder armour, the hooves look a bit too rounded). However, the faces/heads look spot on, and the hair looks good, too. :)

I'm still thinking about getting some dwarves, and the orcs and trolls turned out fantastic (got a bunch), but don't know that I'll be backing this one.

 

Keep in mind though that they have continued to refine designs/details during and after the KS project for both previous ones.

Anyone remember at all about how much the figures were priced at during the last KS?  I really wan't some Atlantis miniatures but they are a little pricey on their website.  I am keeping my excitement limited on this one and expecting them to be out of my price range but I am hoping for the best!

I'm with you. Hoping to get the 3 werewolves but if they are like $20 a piece I doubt I can swing it... And I am guessing that is probably the range.

I am guessing you are probably right.  Although @Clearman said that you can add funds during the PM so depending on how long that stays open I might be able to swing it!

 

I am really liking the Sphinx, the Pegasus, and the Cerberous!

I went and looked at their KS' and compared them to the prices on the website. The dwarves are currently at preorder prices which are comparable to the KS prices. However if you look at their orcs and goblins KS, the large models are almost half the website prices. And in either case the box sets are the best deals. Looks well worth the money but could be hard on the wallet.

This should be kicking off first thing in the morning (at least here in the state).  We'll see if I can actually afford anything though.

Thinking about backing this to replace some of the Mythic Battles minis I'm not overly fond of (Heracles). These look great, but at the price point I'm not sure. Not that they're not worth what they're asking, just for my needs it might not be worth it.

      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!
