they didn't ever give them different names.

 

They changed the names (sort of, lol) after your comment! so that's good. I was a little hung up on that (not hung up enough to not pledge obviously, lol)

 

It's not my field of law, but between the different art style and name changes, I would speculate that it's distinct enough to avoid issues

Plenty of miniature companies have knock-offs, though they're obviously riskier through KS than retail. IM has done at least two of them. :

There's a new update

 

 

What an incredible first 24 hours! Thank you backers! 4 Unlocked Stretch Goals

Posted by Impact! Miniatures (Creator)

What a great first 29 hours. We are in awe as we hoped but did not expect to be sending our first update not only funded but with 4 unlocked extra miniatures!

So thanks for helping us fund (it took 14 minutes) and for unlocking 4 stretch goals all in the first day of the project.

So we unlocked all four of the character and beast Magical Girl Riders! So all of these will be sculpted and available as 3-D prints!

Chibi Capsule and Impact! are both really looking forward to making these figures for everyone.

And now with that success ... we want to announce Stretch Goals #6 to #9 which will move the Riders from 3-D prints over to spin cast resin which once we can pay for all the molding will allow the KickStarter to offer these figures at a much lower price!

We are very grateful to our support during this project. I'm working with Heriberto to come up with even more fun items to bring to us over the next 2+ weeks!

Thank you again backers!

Tom @ Impact!

So two things on the IP front.

 

I have no intention of trying to go for IP issues so if something has an IP-ish name and I was not aware ... definitely let me know.

 

I was not a hardcore gamer and so when I ported in the catalog from Chibi Capsule to set this up of what he had sculpted ... I did not know the 2B or 9S connection.   Gladly named changed them once @redambrosia mentioned it to me.   Like I said ... I have no intentions of pulling a tiger's tail.

 

That said ... in almost all cases ... a major change in artwork (ie move to Chibi style) and a change to any IP related names is normally all that is required to not have an issue.   That has been our experience in our business and working with other companies during the last 12 years.

 

However ... I like being safe rather than sorry ... so if you think there are any other names that need to change ... let me know.   Happy to do so.

 

Thanks for everyone that said they loved the figures.   I really look forward to producing these.   This project is an experiment for my company as I started commercial 3-D printing fantasy miniatures for hire for other companies late last year.   I had several of my long time KickStarter backers order some to test them out and they all told me they were as good a quality as cast minis.  So with that feedback I made the decision when Chibi Capsule came to me and asked if we could do a KickStarter for his designs in partnership to give it a go and see what happens!

So many tempting figures in this one. Are Mariya and the Fighting Girlfriend inspired by "Girls und Panzer", or is it a inspired from another source? Whatever the case, it's a great sculpt. Like others have mentioned, Corgberus makes this project almost impossible to skip for chibi fans like me.

Mariya inspiration was this:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mariya_Oktyabrskaya

 

And thanks for the kind words on Corgberus

Hey @impactminiaturesI would definitely recommend looking at renaming the Max and Chloe figures, as they bear more than a passing resemblance to Max and Chloe from Life is Strange.

 

I haven't backed yet to tell you in the comments, but I'm definitely going to have to, at least for the pirate and the princess...

      Hello guys! 
      I am here to show you the new KS from Ludus Magnus Studio coming this spring!
       

       
      Black Rose Wars is a board game that will guide you into the world of Nova Aetas.The Black Rose lodge meets to determine who will be the new Magister, the keeper of forgotten magic. The most powerful mages affiliated with the lodge will confront each other in a series of epic and captivating battles, exploiting the arcane powers in their possession. The event, which determines the destiny of the lodge every ten years, will be hosted in the rooms of the Black Rose manor.
       
      In Black Rose Wars, each player uses magic to collect Power Points by killing the other mages, destroying the rooms of the lodge, making them unstable or completing personal missions. At the start of the game, each mage begins with spell cards selected from a school of choice. Each of the Black Rose Wars schools contains different and unique spells, which leads to different victory strategies. Each school, like Divination and Trasmutation, have different type of spells which gives the mage different strategies to become the most powerful mage.

      Or you can ask here and I will do my best for answer!

      EDIT: link to the live kickstarter:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/hellboy-the-board-game/description

       

      The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts.
      Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series.
      “Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”

      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?
