I didn't back their last KickStarter (Skulls?), but backed the one just before that. (Skeletons).  The had decent communication and fulfilled quickly and on-time.  I will back again if the project is right.

 

That said, I'm liking the look of that medusa.

Keeping an eye on this one, that’s a nice Medusa. Never heard of RBJ Game Company before, wish they’d name the sculptors in their store though :unsure:.

 

On another note, I’ve never heard of “Popular Company” miniatures as shown in the scale shot...

I backed the skeleton one and the skulls one. Good communication, easy to use website for 'ordering' the KS, quick shipping. This one isn't up my alley but I may head in for a figure or two.

I'm in for the Medusa.

The rest just doesn't stand out, really.

Also, while soldiers might have marched with their helmets up like that, they definitely pulled them down to cover their face in actual combat, or even when 'just' practising with their weapons, because one, it's a helmet designed to PROTECT the head, so it's stupid not to use it, and two, wearing it 'up' like that it's likely to fall off when doing vigorous movements. It's also a good idea to practice with the helmet on to get used to the weight, mobility issues and lack of peripheral vision.

I like the characters and add ons.  The cyclops and gorgon are my favorites.

Yes.  I went in on their sci fi Kickstarter and it was all good.

 

Looks like they’re over the mark for the Cyclops!  That’s the one I dig the most.

Cute triumphs over accuracy. Actually, maybe she had just taken a fearsome blow to her face. Her helm did it's job, protecting her and getting knocked back in the process. Yeah, that's the ticket. It might even look good painted up with some manufactured damage and blood on it. Then she'd have it up because it didn't fit properly anymore. Of course the suspension of disbelief is severely tested when you see three out of four are knocked back in a similar fashion...

 

Hey, maybe they are fighting a flail snail, and the flails all spin upwards, causing an abnormal number of helms to be knocked back.

 

Or they are marching to war through tiger territory, and have faces painted on the tops of their plumes for safety:

I just got my stuff today as well. One of those rarities, a kickstarter fulfilling on time.

Athena looks great, and her owl is amazing. She is a bit larger than the other minis, as befitting a Goddess. The owl is nicely made, I didn't use anything to hold it in place, it balanced well on it's own on the flying stand and separate base. I also added a set of pillars, as you can see they are quite tall, I didn't want to zoom any further out or I would lose too much detail on the other minis. I got a pack of translucent snakes and the set of resin hoplites, they are surprisingly dark, but look quite good. There is a reaper guy on the end for scale.

A close up on the snake and hoplite. Still a bit hard to see, but the detail is good.

Somehow a sleestak grabbed a machine gun and snuck into my box (I'm guessing it was a bonus freebee to show their other lines). I laid a pillar on it's side to show proper size. The schnauzer was a freebee, then one from the archer, spear and sword sets I picked up. There were a few shield options, I picked the assorted packs. Unpainted the minis look topless, they have belly button and nipples on them. Only the raised edge across the chests and skirts make it obvious they are armoured. Of course painting them would make it clear. I picked up the medusa as well. She's a beauty, but needs some assembly. There is some flash, but not any abnormal amounts and it looks easy to clean.

 

Overall, a very good ks experience. Nice minis, good prices, and quick delivery.

      Hello everyone we are venturing into the Kickstarter realm again with a fully digital to cast project. Warning this one is on the artistic nude side, so be careful if at work or sensitive area...
       
      "In the desert realm of Tharaa, summer’s heat lies as heavily upon the lavish court of the Sultana as it does upon the simple shops and homes of her subjects. Yet they are the ones who rejoice with the cool evening zephyrs that race refreshingly through their markets stalls, tents, and villas; breezes that never seem to reach the perfumed halls of the Sultana’s court. On those stifling, windless, near endless days; comfort, pleasure, and even mere distraction elude the powerful ruler. Her great wealth, her many servants, and her countless possessions seem more burden than blessing. On those days when clothing itself seems a pointless effort, the beauty and power of the human form acts as reminder that modesty can be a needless vanity..."

      About
      The concept for Mother of Dragons was born a few years ago.
      I still recall seeing the beautiful illustration made by Stéphane Wootha Richard posted on his Facebook profile and I fell in love with her immediately – I knew immediately that I wanted to bring her to life in miniature form.
      Fortunately, Stéphane was also very excited about the idea of a collaboration.
      We were inspired and driven to start working on the project that we both felt so passionate about and now, with much pride we can finally share this project with you all.

      What you see here required 2 years of committed development, during which time, our team has created and implemented many variants until we made of it a full range, indeed in addition to the varied scale of the main subject , you will find unique versions such as the bust or the lovely "super deformed" miniature. In fact, this is the characteristic of all of our Kickstarter campaigns — we always enjoy experimenting with new products and offering you something you've never seen before.
      Every successful kickstarter campaign enable us to share our dreams with the most supportive community in the world.

      In Mother of Dragons you will find exciting new figures as well as numerous artefacts (artefacts? – I hear you say. Exactly)! Be ready for an ancient Dragon Jar, or a real dragon’s tooth. One thing is certain. They will not be the only exclusives to catch your attention.

      Now with your continued help and support; it’s time to bring this project to life!
      So why support this project?
      Well, first because you’re a hobbyist and a modeller and you can’t wait to lay your hands on a new figure.
      Second, because the Mother of Dragons will also appeal to your collector’s side; she will be the “queen” of your showcase, no matter the scale, you choose.
      Apart from the main subject of this campaign, as usual, we’re offering great deals, rewards, add-ons and freebies, indeed Kabuki Studio places great importance to Kickstarter and for this reason the benefits/conditions offered will never be seen again outside the campaign, not even in the pledge manager/late backer's option.

      KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
       
       
      What is this, and how does it work I hear you say?
      Well it’s simple. At some point during the campaign we will show some super-secret stuff that isn’t quite ready yet. You, as Kickstarter backers will have the exclusive first chance to grab some of this cool stuff.

      Any funds gathered from this boost will be added to the total campaign fund and will also go towards unlocking goodies for the qualifying pledges
       
       
      It’s simple, we need your support in order to fund the project and unlock all the amazing items we’ve designed!
      To donate, select a pledge amount and reward on either the right-hand side of a project page or after clicking the “Back this project” button and selecting “Continue”. From here you’ll be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have an account.
      If you would like to continue as a guest, just enter your email address and select “Continue as Guest”.
      Next, fill in your payment details and take a minute to review your pledge details. When you’re ready, just click the green “Pledge” button and the job is done! Easy, isn’t it?

      During the campaign, thanks to your help, we will unlock several new rewards so you may want to review your current pledge, well how do you do that? To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page.
      From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.
      If you don't want to receive a reward, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your new pledge amount. Alternatively, you may change your pledge amount within the reward tier modal.

      Note: you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
      Everything will be dispatched from Roma (Italy).
      You don’t have to be worried about customs tax because we’ll provide a special invoice for that purpose.
      All the pledges will be posted through DHL Express and the delivery time is brutally fast!
      18-24 hours for Europe
      2-3 days for rest of the world (customs clearance included)
      So even the delivery time is a “problem solved”.
      Average costs:
      up to 1kg to Europe 14.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to USA/Canada 19.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Asia 31.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Australia/South America 38.50 Euro
      We removed “Poste Italiane” from the carriers choice because the price difference is almost zero and the reliability of that carrier is particularly low, that means you could save 3 or 4 euro from shipping cost, but have great delays in your delivery or pay more in custom taxes, or even have the parcel lost.
