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).

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.

$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 Kobold Fighter
$3 = Female Grippli Druid

      I don't think I saw this one posted here before, but with 48 hours left, I thought I'd share this fun-looking little film project.

      I backed his Chaos warrior and Goblin Kickstarters. Very nice minis, delivery a bit delayed but communications good, both Kickstarters were well worth it.

      Warning: Nudity

      About this project
      The Shadow Lords have been waging war in the depths of the Shadow Realm for thousands of years. 
      Each model will be cast in gray resin at the highest quality and be shipped as a model kit with some assembly required. They will be boxed with supportive foam ensuring that they are delivered in the best possible condition. As you can see each figure is highly detailed and stands roughly 6 inches or 152mm tall making them perfect for hobby painting, display, and 28-32mm scale table top gaming! If you need a new final boss, a overlord for your cult, or just a new way to wipe the party you've got trapped in the Underworld.. you've come to the right place!  They will make perfect Christmas gifts for the gamers, painters, and dungeon masters in your life. 
      **All models are printed in gray resin - NONE ARE PAINTED** 
      The project funds 1 Shadow Lord at a time! Basically, the Kickstarter's total goal will cover the complete production costs and ensure the price point for a single model. There are 4 Shadow Lords in total and we will have to reach 400% funding to unlock all 4! Once a stretch goal is unlocked that Shadow Lord will then be available to choose as a reward or Add-On! 
      Each model or a T-shirt can be added to any pledge level. Simply select your pledge level and in order to add an additional Shadow Lord figurine or an additional T-shirt to your order simply add $75 for a Shadow Lord or $25 for a T-shirt to your pledge! Its that easy! If you want more than one simply multiply the add on price by the number you wish to add and let me know in the Backer Report message at the end of the Kickstarter what the additional funds were for. 
      Once a Shadow Lord is unlocked more details about them will be released! 
      Stretch Goal 1 - Abatszar Prince of the Shadow Realm 
      Models are printed in grey resin  
      Textured 3d model - models will NOT come painted  
      Lore Stretch Goal 2 - Steve the Soul-Eater
      Models are printed in grey resin  
      Textured 3d model - models will NOT come painted  
      Steve & Nik Lore Stretch Goal 3 - Nik the Flesh-Reaver

      About this project
       
      Barbarians: The Invasion is a worker placement and area control eurogame from acclaimed author Pierluca Zizzi. Enter the mysterious World of Fenian, a place where barbarian clans rule wild lands and corrupt civilizations live in decaying cities. Each player will become the Warlord of a clan and lead them on the conquest of civilized lands, but only one will leave his mark on history. You will need a strong economy and an even stronger army, do you have what it takes?
