StoneHaven Adventurers 2018

Recommended Posts

Backed.  Going pick-and-choose route.  There are about 2 minis per group that I'm interested in.

 

Also, agreed on their post-KS prices!  Those suckers are expensive if you buy 'em from their store.  I like Stonehaven's work, but not enough to pay $12 per mini (for most of them).

I thought I might get away without backing this, but a cheese-fixated Modron is too good to pass up.

Hopefully we'll be able to replicate this awesome picture from the DMG by the end of this Kickstarter:

Are Stonehaven campaigns usually this.. slow? How many more minis do you think will be realistically unlocked?

 

I'm currently in for a party, probably the Volunteer Watch... just hoping more will be revealed/available.

Thier early kickstarters were much busier but thier more recent ones do have a much slower pace. Slow but steady.

 

I'd expect s few more parties to be unlocked before it ends.

I hope so.  I like their completionist packages but those don't usually open up unless they get 5 sets or more.  I pulled the trigger and I'm in for at least a few sets.  maybe more...

 

Decided that I had to paint my grippli's....  maybe the dawning of knowledge that something has changed...

I'm not sure if I'm a typical or atypical Stonehaven backer. I backed almost all of their earlier Kickstarters at the Completionist level. However, the last few Kickstarters seem to have a larger number of more "out there" miniatures like Owlfolk, Kitsune, Kenku and Grippli, which I just don't have much use for, so I've given them a miss. I'm on the fence about this one, but will skip this one as well as this stage.

Those are the exact sorts of things that are making this my first stonehaven KS. Those guys fill gaps in my collection and seem fun and fresh to paint. Ill be cherry-picking them out of the lineup. I have decades of assorted adventurers stockpiled, so more human/elf/dwarf characters are an easy pass. Hoping for enough owlfolk to make a group of their own.

Oh, I'm sure there are a number of people like yourself that absolutely love those minis, especially as there aren't many options around for them. I was just explaining why I haven't backed the last couple of Stonehaven Kickstarters.

That's kinda my thought too. There are tons of standing upright humans and elves. Not so many owlfolk and funky figures. I haven't backed yet - not sure if I want to cherrypick or just snag a big batch or what. I wish that the adventurer sets had the "normal" figures in one set, and oddball ones in another though, instead of mixing them up.

That would be a better option and would encourage both people that like the oddball minis and people that like more stereotypical minis to back.

Yep. If there was a set of the oddball ones all together, I probably would have failed my will save already.

That seems like it would be a good compromise. There are certainly people who need a variety of classical adventurers, and folks like me who are looking for more unusual fare -  it checks both boxes.

I haven't researched into the project, but can we do the $12 pledge and add individuals?

My list so far would be (running total = $39)

$12 dollar pledge plus add-ons:
1st chosen = Male Owlfolk Wizard
2nd chosen = Female Owlfolk Fighter
$5 = Male Owlfolk Rogue
$5 = Female-Elf Witch with Ferret
$4 = Male Goblin Archer
$4 = Male Kobold Fighter
$3 = Female Grippli Druid
$3 = Male Grippli Mage
$3 = Modron Wizard

      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.

      About


      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.
