If so, I hope they're dragon style dragons, instead of the wyverns of the show. Could go either way, since DS's previous GRRM stuff predates the show.

Perhaps a new set of 'core characters' based off the show? Having a Radghast the Brown didn't stop GW from making a new version when the Hobby movies came out.

GRRM signs off on all the sculpts, so the style of dragon will be what he envisioned.  Whether or not that matches the HBO version...

 

Aside from creatures (I don't remember any children of the forest or giants in the line either), another possible opening for new sculpts is for characters that lived long enough to have changed appearance.  Some people lost body parts, but some children simply grew up.

I am pretty certain that GRRM sees dragons AS the ones on the HBO show.  So no front legs and "wyvern" like.

We need giants and dragons and walkers and their bosses!

This so made me think of a dragon in an AT-ST from star wars... Not quite certain why brain went there..

Also, this is not going to be a Kick Starter.  So not sure the discussion belongs here?

Huh. You are indeed correct. From their facebook: "We will be releasing this new batch of GRRM Masterworks releases via the site instead of via Kickstarter. It will be a large bundle of miniatures at an incredible deal."

Interesting.  I guess they changed their mind?  It makes sense, they'll probably get just as many people, and they don't have to pay Kickstarter it's cut.  I wonder how many other companies are likely to follow suit?

Northstar games already does the same thing with their "Nick-starters" for Frostgrave.  Seems to work for them.

Curious. That was definitely a Kickstarter logo on the photo in the OP.

 

... Also, does it say anywhere that these are Tom Meier figures? The detail on the example looks like his level of detail, but its style is not very obviously his, to my semitrained eye.

Looking at their Facebook page it appears that for whatever reason, Darksword has changed their mind about using kickstarter for this release.

      In “A thief tale: Ars Draconis” we put ourselves in Thyra’s shoes, a young woman whose skills as a thief have turned her into one of the Citadel’s most wanted. She will be assisted by many fascinating allies who will help her solve all the puzzles hidden in this huge Victorian city, its intrigues, conspirations, and of course find the answers to the gaps in her knowledge about her past.
       
      In an island amid the vast ocean the wind whispers rumours about an ancestral object… Thyra, a reputed thief herself, won’t let the opportunity of acquiring such an object go away, and she will try to make the most out of it – whether that implies selling it to the highest bidder or using it. But the mysterious object attracts the attention of the three factions fighting for the Citadel’s control, and they will do anything to get it for themselves… even if that means burning the city down.
       
      "A thief tale: Ars Draconis" uses the basic mechanics that have made 2D action games wonderful and challenging, We wanted the gameplay to be familiar to all those who love the genre and at the same time to add unique elements from multiple videogame and tabletop role-playing games genres, creating an experience that invites players to stay in The Citadel.
       Experience a hectic adventure
      In this narrative, inspired in pen-and-paper roleplaying games, you will enjoy an elaborate and extensive adventure full of secrets, conspirations and charming characters who will appear along the three possible paths through which you can decide the Citadel’s destiny. Aside from the main plot you will have several sub-plots available, all of which will help Thyra see the events in a whole new light.
      We estimate about 40 to 45 hours of gameplay including all plots but... there will always be some new secret in store for you in the Broken Valley Island!
      Two heads are better than one
      Thyra won’t be living this adventure by herself — her odd friend Sokrattes will be by her side from one end to the other and advise you in key scenarios. Even better — you can switch between both of them and pick the best solution to each one of the situations you’ll have to face throughout this adventure!
      And what is more, if we reach our multiplayer goal, you will be able to play both characters at the same time with the help of a friend.
      Clean-cut pixel art
      The world in “A thief tale: Ars Draconis” revolves around a victorian city full of retrofuturistic and fantastic elements. Everything in the game, from scenarios and characters to animations, is created using traditional pixelation techniques. We aim to honor those classic games that made us, both the old and new generations, enjoy so much back in the day. To do this we rely on our pixel artist, who has more than ten years of experience in the field.

      An unforgettable soundtrack
      We are decided to dedicate as much time and effort as possible to create a soundtrack able to transmit each and every sensation Thyra will feel in the numerous and assorted settings that the Citadel has to offer. To achieve that we have bet on orchestral integration with classic chiptune, giving a retro and epic feel to every situation. This being a very complex task, our studio counts on one of the best Galician musicians, who has been on tour both in Spain and Europe with renowned artists as Jose Rubio or Pacho Brea.
      Pick your weapon
      Our combat mechanics are based on old-school action games and platformers, to which we have added a wide variety of weapons and gadgets that will make for a dynamic combat, allowing Thyra to mirror the player’s preferred combat style.
      As any self-respecting thief, Thyra will have to be stealthy and always go for the most discreet way to do things. We have implemented a complete system where everything counts: the sound of our steps, the enemies’ field of vision, and even the noise we make when we knock out (or kill) any guard standing between us and our goal.
      Exploring the Citadel
      From the beginning we’ve been adamant about offering you a world in which you will be able to find the path that better suits you and shape your own story. That’s why the Citadel is an open world environment for you to explore to its full extent; be it to learn about its history, steal valuable treasures or plan your next heist as you think best.

      I have been a gamer my entire life. Early in 2017, I decided to take my years of manufacturing and construction experience and build myself a gaming table.  
      I wanted something sturdy, something that I could see myself passing to my children someday. A table dedicated to gaming at night and yet able to be a beautiful piece of dining room furniture the rest of the time.  
      My first gaming session with my friends ended with two of them asking how quickly they could have their own and how much it would cost. That got the wheels rolling. Two months later, I showed the tables to a large group at Grand-Con. Several hundred positive comments later and here we are.
      Grand Con 2017 The designs are set. Choose from coffee, dining, and pub tables.
      Coffee Table   Overall dimensions 2 foot 6 inches X 3 foot 6 inches Internal Play Area 2 foot X 3-foot x 3.5 inches deep Coffee Table in Knotty Pine with Hairpin Legs                                        Dining Table
