    Eternalverse Heroines Miniature Collection

    I don't disagree. This project isn't really to my interest. The goal seems to be to make a couple non sexualized minis for "daughters" or other ladies. The minis aren't great detail wise, but if its intended for an eight year old to play in an RPG with the family I think they are fine enough. The minis look to be juvenile characters, but size wise it looks like they will be just as tall/big as an adult model comparatively. Still, My cousin has her girls (8 and 10 I believe) playing D&D and the D&D board games like Wrath of Ashardalon, so... I may back as a present for them.

No boob armor, we promise. About We wanted to make a collection of miniature heroines that you would be proud to give to your daughters. We strugle to find variety in this field and we want to make a difference offering wonderful designs with non sexualized poses and clothes and, of course, defeat the boob armour for good, let's keep it practical. The nerd future deserves awesome heroines and we are gonna do it right. Our miniature Heroines are perfect for a lot of tabletop games like Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Warhammer, etc. Also they're lovely for the painting enthusiasts with a medium level of difficulty. The miniatures will be available assembled and unpainted and in .stl, ready to be printed. They're in 28mm scale and come with circle bases. Moulds and production are going to be done by a factory of miniature proffesionals who make high detailed works like anime figures and wargames miniatures (and that they do the production on a very well know brand of figures who casually have a cool range of women soldiers!).

This pdf booklet will feature original concept sketches, illustrations and 3D renderings by three different artist. We didn't want to add a lot of stretch goals because we want to give all our attention and care to our four heroines.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    Did anyone back this? I dropped out of this to back Anno Domini. There are 3 minis I really liked, Le Loup, the other ale Loup and the knife throwing guy. Oh well. looks like there will be a 7 month delay on this one.

    Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood of Venice

    Did anyone else back this? I just filled out my pledge manager. Base game and Roma expansion came out to about $200 US with shipping, pledge manager will be open open until November and the game won’t be shipping til next year. Still feels like a good deal.

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    To go a little further, and I guess this has changed my stance to defending the pricing... :) This kickstarter is clearly meant for people who want to buy an army for whatever their favorite war game is. Now, while in an army you might need 3 unit A, you will probably only ever need one of hero A. So the vast majority of people might buy multiples of the units, but only one of the heroes. So the molds for the units will be paid for sooner. They may sell 3 units to 100 backers. Meaning they pay off that mold quick and start making profits on it. But only selling 1 hero to each of those backers means that the mold gets paid off slower. Charging a higher price helps mitigate that and get that mold pay off. I for one welcome our Aztec overlords, and look forward to serving them in any capacity they deem fit!

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    So, the character mini costing almost as much as a unit.... I am not defending it, but that is kind of common with wargaming minis. A hold over from Games workshop style. A single character mini can be $30+ while a units of 10 (or in the old days 16 or 20) was around the same price. Not saying I agree with that reasoning or strategy, but just saying its not something new. Several things have been unlocked on both sides for freebies and add ons. Also there is a social media stretch goal that will unlock command options for the Amazons. The creator has said that there will be a blow gun unit and a spear unit for the Amazons coming. I was kind of in... but I have been thinking of some cool adventures and uses for these. Just wish I had the money for both the amazons and the more conquistador looking ogres. So now I am in - In. May sill get the Ogre Pistoliers and Rodrigo/

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    I initially grabbed the early bird big amazon army, but I agree with you guys on the dragon/bird mount. The head is a bit off and too big. I dropped down to the early bird $89 level. I like the ogre pistoliers. May add them. I don’t really need any of this, but it looks cool. I am kind of on the fence though between backing this and buying a whole lot of new ASOI&F minis. Will see.

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1084608523/raid-on-the-temple-of-serpents/description About Welcome to the most thrilling raid in the miniature history! Choose your side, fight until the end and get greatly rewarded for your engagement! This campaign features 2 lines of miniatures! "Temple of Serpent" is a brand new collection inspired by the lost civilizations of Amazonia and Mesoamerica. It envisions an utopian enclave hidden so deep in the wilderness that it is considered forbidden territory. The tribe is focused on preserving an ancient magic with the help of gods and dinosaurs. Be the first to explore it! "Bloodsail Island" is an established line of ruthless ogre pirates. Upon discovering the Temple of Serpent they have became overpowered by the desire to plunder its treasures. They are going to need every hand on deck for this one, so the line is getting a massive extension! Our products are in 28mm scale and come with square bases. Check pictures at the bottom of our campaign to see the size comparisons. All miniatures are made from high-quality resin that ensures highest details, durability and flexibility. Based on our Kickstarter experience and community feedback we have came up with the simplest Reward System to date. You can choose one of the following pledges. Deckhand Pledge is for you if you are not sure what you need but you want to be a part of the campaing. It will give you the access to the Pledge Manager where you will be able to spend your additional funds on any miniatures you want. Basic Pledge is for you if you do not want to pick a side. It is really simple. You plede $99 and you receive $99 to spend on addons. But on top of that you will choose and receive either a set of Serpent Freebies OR Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with those freebies packs. In Captain Pledge you become the commander of ogre pirate army! Pledge $199 to get Captain Krabor in special offer for $40. The rest of your funds ($159) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive a set of Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs. In Serpent Pledge you become the deity of the Temple! Pledge $199 to get High Priestess on Pterossus in a special offer for $50. The rest of your funds ($149) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive a set of Serpent Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs. After the campaign ends, we will open a Pledge Manager. You will receive an e-mail address with a link to it. When you log in, you will be able to pick your rewards and spend your funds on any chosen add-ons from the campaign. You will also be able to transfer additional funds via PayPal. After finishing an order a shipping cost will be charged, based on your address and the package weight. All additional funds you pledge over your reward price you will be able to spend on add-ons. When our Campaign is live we will post a link to an online calculator that will help you in figuring out how much you need to pledge to get all the miniatures you want. Example 1: You want just 3 units of Raptor Riders that are $39 each. In order to get them you need to choose Basic Pledge and pledge $117 (3x $39) for it. This will allow you to spend that $117 in Pledge Manager and choose 3x Raptor Riders. On top of that you will be able to choose a set of freebies (either Serpent of Ogre one). Example 2: You want Captain Krabor, 3 units of Sharkman that are $39 each and 5 units of goblins that are $12 each. In order to get those you should choose Captain Pledge and pledge $217 for it. In this pledge Captain Krabor is in a better price and you will also get $159 for other addons. You need 3x $39 + 5x $12 = $177 so you need to pledge $18 on top of the pledge price to cover everything. In case of any mistakes, there will be no problem with make a correction. You will always be able to add funds in the Pledge Manager via PayPal, so if you do not pledge enough through Kickstarter, you will still be able to get everything you need after the campaign ends.

    28mm Hard Plastic Fauns

    That’s fine. The campaign started with a certain goal. At $10,000 the ks would fund and you would have a sprue for both male and female fauns. People pledged based on that. Now with this change, if funding only reaches that $10,000 goal, then those who pledged for that and are expecting what you had said may he disapointed. If funding goes up to $20,000 then it wouldn’t matter, unless of course you change the order again and decide something else is more important or would gather more money. i wish you luck, and hope everything you want to fund does so. I will keep an eye to see when or if the females come around.

    28mm Hard Plastic Fauns

    Well, saw a poll on their Facebook that looks like they are prioritizing centaurs to the female fauns. Since I was only gonna back this for the females I guess that means I’m out. There is a lot of things looking for my money right now, so I guess it’s a good thing. One less thing to worry about.

    Gruesome Foes - Rogue Genius Games

    Thanks for posting this, I will definitely try to support as much PF1kickstarters and 3rd party stuff in general as I can, as I don't plan on switching to PF2. Following the Kingdom of Ghouls thread, If it was PF1 I would have backed that as well.

    Confrontation: Classic

    The resin actually looks pretty nice. I have the naked lion centaur with wings from the prepainted lions box. Though, as she is naked, that pic should probably be removed since that is against forum rules.

    28mm Hard Plastic Fauns

    hmm. I only want the female ones (if unlocked) but could use 40 of them. Will keep an eye. I have plenty of beastmen that fill the need of the males.
