I ordered my first Stonehaven mini off ebay yesterday. One of the gremlins, he may become a goblin gunslinger for We Be Goblins. Will wait for that + hopefully they show some greens for the sculpts. I like Stonehaven but their recent price hike makes them a bit out there for me. KS prices are decent thou.

Wish they at least had some greens to look at, hard to know how these will look from just concept art.

I hear you and agree, but having backed many of their previous kickstarters I will say that with a few exceptions, the sculpts match the concept art very closely.

 

I think it helps that Mike is both the artist and the sculptor.

If I recall correctly they stopped selling directly and only sell their minis though a third party. Hence the price increase.

Tempting. I will probably pledge for this. The stuff that I like from Stone haven I really like. but so far each group looks like it will have at least one of their habits that I don't like. Weird flattening in their poses, like that poor half elf woman whose neck is snapped so she can look left in a completely perpendicular manner. The first group looks pretty good for the most part although the sorceress's staff will be at a weird angle, it shouldn't be too bad. I'll have to see if other groups unlock or if I'm going to have to ala carte this.

 

hmmm. looking at the greens on that instagram the half elf is still pointing her spear down weirdly but her head is not turned ninety degrees so that's promising at least. I actually want that mini a bit now.

Their half-dragon duelist remains one of the best minis I've ever had the pleasure to paint. Their best moments are truly special indeed.

 

 

But that price hike's still in place, huh? Drove me off their last KS. Store prices were plumb nuts. Ah, well.

Ugh, I shouldn't have looked at those greens. I'm in. Not going for the full teams (yet), but I can't pass up some of these. The goblin, kobold and dwarf got me.

I don't think the price hike affects the KS prices for them. Store prices are just a bit unfortunate though. Which is sad because I did want to back the halfling KSer but didn't have the money at the time. So now i'm not likely to ever get them.

Edit: Very much agree on that half dragon duelist

It's a 30 day project, so that's a long time to keep people's interest on KS these days. I expect they're just holding the greens to show gradually throughout the project.

I hope it does well for them - I wasn't too keen on some of the earlier stuff, as it was a bit flat for my liking, but Mike's really improved with this lot. I love that dwarf!

If they put that dragon in this project I'll have to back. A cute sleeping dragon would be awesome :ik_oops:

Even though I probably never need another Goblin or Kobold again, I really like Stonehaven's take on them.  The semi-Pathfinder Goblins but with more equipment just...works!

Yeah, the prices post-Kickstarter have gotten insane.  The last project, Adventurers 2017, was pretty expensive as it was only per-piece prices, but this one is closer to their old pricing structures if you get groups.

      About
      The Hunters 2114 is a fully cooperative game which enables you to play solo or with a group of friends.
      Players become machine hunters who participate in a complex and gripping campaign comprised of 200 story cards. The narrative presented on the cards is full of story twists and difficult decisions to make.
      During the campaign, players execute missions. Each of them takes 30 to 60 minutes to play. It may take place during the day or at nighttime, in various weather conditions. Every time players must choose proper tactics and equipment matching current circumstances.
      Players may barter with local inhabitants, undertake various jobs, overcome unexpected obstacles or expand their base in order to manufacture over 70 different types of gear from parts scavenged during the game.

      I always liked the Idea of a KS for a complete RP module, minis, terrain and all. FOI is a nice company.

      WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ABOUT?

      To produce three new resin 32mm scale fantasy football complete teams along with the DeathChariot.

      This KickStarter is a joint venture between Rolljordan Miniatures, Heresy Miniatures and Impact! Miniatures to bring three incredible looking metal Fantasy Football teams into affordable resin for about half the price of the metal teams to give more gamers the opportunity to own these great models.

      The miniatures in the teams are the new resin that Impact! started using this month that has good flexibility while still being able to filed. The resin is to be painted as easily (both brush and spray primers can work). The miniatures all come with bases and are provided unpainted. The miniatures will require light clean up and assembly. Impact! Miniatures has created several KickStarters and delivered to all backers on all our previous KickStarters so bid with confidence.

      I know for many coaches I talk to that making sure a new team fits in with the current 32mm scale is very important. All 3 of the new teams fit very well with the 32mm scale. From left to right, Norse Ice Trolless, Norse Thrower, Human Lineman, Kalle Imp, Heresy Ogre, Legio Halfling and Legio Treeman.


      another Impact! fantasy football KS, they're nice and reliable so if you want any of the stuff back with confidence

      This looks interesting ... no, actually it looks too good to be true - the buildings are plastic and almost (?) correctly scaled.
       

       
      Has anybody heard about that before? Or about the company? I hope they show better pictures of the minis as it looks a bit as they are light on detail.
