Some info on the Dakka forums, including "backward compatibility" ::): and "skirmish, and only skirmish" : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/150/717182.page

 

Anyone have any info about the company? How able do you think they can pull off a KS? They've at least been in business for a long time?

It seems it's French publisher Sans-Detour that's running the show, and yeah...  

Their website is only in French. 

 

I've dealt with French companies before, and no, not going to bother.

Nice to see this come back.  I used to follow the line back in the Rackham days, but I have to admit I lost track after it switched to prepainted plastic.  I have no idea about the current company.

Very mixed feelings about this. Some Confrontation models were wonderful (Ninja Goblins!) and I'd buy new ones in a flash, but I can't see them being able to sort out the IP issues in order to produce a set of rules.

178 minis to start, before stretch goals or possible expansions. I am definitely interested. 

 

Especially in new Wulfen or other beasties.

If they go the resin route, and with the possibility to pick and chose characters, I'd be interested, too. I am a long-time Confrontation fan-boi. :)

Didn't Cyanide Studios and Legacy Miniatures get hold of the IP after Rackham went bust, and weren't they to relaunch the game in 2014?

 

There's no news on Cyanide's pages about any transfer or leasing of IP that I can see?

 

With 178 minis in the set, I would assume that they're not about to let everyone pick and choose just the handful they want. I expect there to be core sets(with books) and expansions and whatever, to make production and fulfillment less of a nightmare.

 

As for sending Cadwallon a C&D, that's a rather .... move.

This could hurt A LOT.  But on the plus side I have all the Wolfen, Drune, Daikinee (except the 2 mail order ones) and Griffin models already.  So really, I'm not interested in that much more.  Only Dirz, Cynwall, Orcs, and Devourers.  Oh, and Mid-Nor, Sessairs, Lions, and Acheron.  And Ophidians.....  :-)  Oh, if they flesh out that other elf faction I'll be in really deep then.

Only interested if these were metal.

 

On the other hand, you can pick up just about all of the old Confrontation figures in metal for practically nothing over at ebay.

You and I must be looking at some very different ebay results. I saw a few of them for $150 +

Maybe I missed something, but weren't they selling recasts of miniature they didn't have the rights to? Why wouldn't they get a C&D?

       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

      This is a very cool RPG product where you'll find a use for all those Mythos minis you've been collecting. One of the authors is a longtime friend and gamemaster of mine, I'm sure this will scare the pants out of your players! 
      From the kickstarter: The Sassoon Files will be released as a PDF and a printed book, approximately 150 - 200 pages long.
