Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project

Recommended Posts

I was in on the Chibi project they did earlier this year and it was delivered on-time and the quality was good.  This looks like an interesting assortment of figures, including good deals on  bunch of Heartbreaker stuff!

 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/impact-miniatures-presents-the-lost-ks-mini-projec?ref=friends_launched

 

Their synopsis:

 

Not All Minis go to Heaven

 Impact! believes that lost and forgotten or unmade miniatures shouldn't stay lost to the hard drive abyss they've been relegated to.  

Whether they were from discontinued lines, failed or undelivered projects we think they deserve to be resurected, brought into the light, and that's why this project is dedicated that end.   

Today we give you a chance to get minis that are either no longer available, or never made it the light of day.  

Over the past year Impact! has reached out to different Kickstarter Creators whose lines of miniatures failed to fund, were never got delivered or finished, or simply were discontinued after an initial printing run.     

We've licensed or outright purchased everything shown in this project and now all that is left raise the capital for molds and materials and bring these amazing miniatures to backers to you, your friends, and your families and for gamers on tables everywhere!

That... is kinda awesome!

 

Spreading word, thanks!

I backed Impact! for the Kev Adams goblins - and was extremely happy with the models.

 

Plus - the Torn Armor minis will finally see the light of day!

 

The Auld Grump - the question is not whether we will be backing, the question is going to be how deep.

I spotted the Torn Armour figures immediately. They were the first thing I thought of when I read the opening pitch.

Splintered stories. 7 for $14 or 1 for $7... [p]such a difficult choice[/p]

 

Or was there something wrong with spincast. Cannot remember.

I backed his Heartbreaker Armies Kickstarter and was very critical and wary because he used the same company that did the Raging Heroes minis (which to me were totally unacceptable). So he reached out to me and guaranteed money back if I was not satisfied.  I still only backed for a small amount and when the minis arrived I wished I had backed for way more. They were very, very nice (awesome considering the price point). I was missing a tiny part and two hours after telling Impact about that, I had a tracking number for that part. Awesome service, very nice guy and I was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with the minis. I will back this here - just don't know how much I can afford yet.

As a Torn Armor backer, I appreciate the sentiment. I backed for the $2. Will at least get those Vanara!!! Though the thing I wanted them for ended in 2013... or 14? Don't even remember now.

The Splintered stories minis were Not Torn armor produced but were licensed torn armor minis done by another company. Not sure I need them but the little blind axe red riding hood child is interesting...

Oh. I like impact. They have been courteous, professional, and great to work with. I couldn't remember if the spincast was a problem or not. Ah well. A few of those sets are cheap enough to justify the risk.

Hmmm, I coulda sworn that there used to be a thread on these forums for the Torn Armor Kickstarter - I was going to nudge it with the info from this Kickstarter.

I have the spincast goblins from last year - most assuredly not a problem.

 

I was incredibly impressed with it. Clear detail, near HIP in regards to hardness. It is a plus, not a minus. ::):

 

One mini had a slight miscast - and I could have gotten a replacement, but I turned it down. (Right here on these forums. ::P: ) It was an easy fix.

 

They were extremely courteous, and I will be happy to back this as well.

If they had gotten the renders from Drake II I'd be in trouble.. 

 

I do not know how ... but I JUST found out about Drake and Drake II 3 days ago.  Too late for me to try and get them included in this project.  So we'll see how this project does and use it after I have the backers delivered as a proof of concept and approach them for a sequel project.   Have a few new suggestions since this launched of companies to reach out to that might be interested in similar arrangements.   So yes ... a bullet dodged for you ... (for now ... muh ha ha ha ha!)   ;-)

Wonder how the Hwacha bolts will stand up in resin.

 

So the supports LOOK like it will print fine ... but I plan on printing one over the next couple days just to make sure it prints okay!   I'll let you know the results!

Drake 1 as well. I know I only backed the Drake projects for a few figures each but I never received any of them.

      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.

      OK, Heroes Super Chibi Villains is now live! You can head over to Kickstarter via this link to check it out.
       
      http://tinyurl.com/y22q93kj
       
      This Kickstarter is very special to us. It’s the first time we will be focusing on the evil side of the Super Chibi universe and it’s the first time that 95% of the character was designed and drawn by Brian “Natakue” Saunders himself.
      We are also doing something different this time around to test interest. We have included a digital pledge this time around for the .stl files of the minis. This is for those of you out there who want to print your own minis. We know 3d printing Is an ever-growing market and well, we want to see if Super Chibi can be one of the items people want to print on their personal printers. You can also print these files from any company or retailer who provides printings services. Just to name a few there is Impact Miniatures, Shapeways and much more. Right now this is a Kickstarter only deal but if there is interest we will look into making this a standard pledge in all the upcoming Kickstarters and possibility adding this option to our online store.
       
      So with that said we want to say thank you for supporting us and we will see you at the end of the Kickstarter.

      About
        The Origins of the Lost Lands
      For almost 20 years, glimpses into the world of the Lost Lands have been revealed in the publications of Frog God Games and Necromancer Games. The Lost Lands contain locations now legendary in the annals of roleplaying, from the depths of the massive dungeons of Rappan Athuk, to the city of Bard’s Gate, the Desolation of Tsar, the Blight, the demon-tainted Sundered Lands, the chaotic tumult of the Borderland Provinces, and the fabled Northlands. These publications offered hints of the sweeping scope, deep history, and epic grandeur of the Lost Lands.  But only hints.
      For well over a decade, a Lost Lands campaign world has been our customers' most requested project...
      ...and the time of the Lost Lands has now arrived!
      The Primary Reward
      Over 42 years in the making, this is the definitive guide to the world of the Lost Lands!
      This massive volume includes the history of the Lost Lands, a wealth of detailed maps, cultural information about its nations and peoples, and a huge gazetteer containing descriptions of the world's countries, cities, waterways and geography. For the first time, readers can explore the length and breadth of the great continent of Akados, including regions never before described, and far Libynos, home of the Desert Kingdoms and many ancient cultures alien to the folk of Akados.
      The book weighs in at approximately 700 pages in full color, with maps by award-winning cartographers and beautiful, original artwork to place you directly into the world itself in all its glory and terror.
      Entirely system-neutral, the guide can be used with any game system you choose.
      The Lost Lands are the setting for a tremendous array of over 150 individual adventures and sourcebooks already published by Frog God Games and Necromancer Games, many providing statistics in multiple game systems. All of this material is available to provide an almost inexhaustible resource of ready-made adventures and epic quests! Future Frog God Games products set in the Lost Lands will be built into the ever-growing canon finally revealed in this volume.
      About 4000 example pages of Lost Lands Adventures Pictured Above A small sample of some of these already-existing adventures include Rappan Athuk, Sword of Air, Slumbering Tsar, Bard's Gate, Necropolis, Cyclopean Deeps, The Borderland Provinces, The Blight, and Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms.
      Authors of adventures which have, over two decades, explored the Lost Lands include Clark Peterson, Ed Greenwood, Bill Webb, Gary Gygax, Matt Finch, Jim Ward, Morten Braten, Jeff Harkness, John Stater, Bill Kenower, Nate Paul, Dennis Sustare, and Alex Kammer.
      The authors of the guide to the Lost Lands include Bill Webb, Greg Vaughan, Matt Finch, Vicki Potter, Pat Lawinger, Anthony Pryor, Rhiannon Louve, Mark Greenberg, Ken Spencer, Casey Christofferson, and Thom Wilson.
      Shipping
      International shipping on a book this size may be quite expensive. If you are a non-US customer, please read the shipping information below. We anticipate shipping to be $80 to $100 for most countries, and could even be more. Shipping for the tapestries (and only the tapestries) is calculated into their price for Canada, the UK, the EU, and Australia.
