    I really like the design of the figures from the first Kickstarter.  I got the minis in plastic, which was a bit of a mistake since some of the minis have hands that look like blobs.  Others are just fine.  I will probably go for the metal ones even if they are a tad larger this time.

     

    vutpakdi. What minis did you get that had the issue with the hands? I kind of want to go and check now. :) I didnt look too hard when I got them. I kind of just did a once over... did some hot water straitening on a couple, then boxed them by gang type/nationality. Which shows the mindset i was in when i got them... I was kind of on a hobby break and just going through the motions...

    Will think about it. I was quite satisfied with what I got from their Kickstarter and how they handled it ... but I'm trying to reduce my KS spending and my mini hoard (yeah, you can stop laughing now).

     

    Yeah... i feel that too. There are 3 kickstarters in April (this one, Fireforge Dwarves and Dungoens and Lasers)... after not really doing any for the last couple months. I havent played a single game of Anno Domini. I liked the minis, but they are teh tiniest bit smaller than my other gaming minis. They will be used next time i run my Pathfinder game, but i already have plenty i could do that with...

  2. Anno Domini 1666 was a Kickstarter for a swashbuckling board game with some magic and supernatural elements.  Players run a "gang" of characters based on literary heroes... like the 3 musketeers.

     

    You have objectives and can use skills and combat to acheive objectives. The game takes place in a fantasy Vienna.
     

    I was satisfied with all the minis I got in the first Kickstarter, though due to certain world events never have gotten a game played ...yet.

     

    so they will be kickstarting an expansion.  Just got a preview of one of the exclusive characters. On a side note, I had no idea that Alexander Dumas was biracial. His father was a noble and his mother a native. Being of similar racial stock, I find that interesting. 
     

    “And here is a miniature of Alexandre Dumas (3D render to be more precise). 

    Alexandre Dumas will be our Kickstarter and convention only miniature. Well, we hope there will be any conventions we can visit in the future...  He will be also narrator of our campaign and you will be informed about some events from his perspective (or rather from the perspective he wants to impose on you - be careful!).

    Dumas is not an amazing fencer. If necessary, he can draw a sword or shoot a pistol, but he believes that a feather is more powerful than a sword. Charisma (quite high), Intelligence and Connections help him with his reporter's tasks but his most powerful weapon is his modest notebook. It may happen that the story told by Dumas looks completely different than in reality and the heroic deeds will be forgotten or even presented in a completely negative way. In the game's mechanic, this means that once during game you will be able to prevent your opponent of getting point(s) for killing your character. Obviously only if Dumas manages to survive to the end of the game and will describe the situation in the way he would like it to be presented to a wide audience...”

    Keep in mind that TT Combat's Halflings are really small.

    I got a Arabian one in the Desert KS as a freebie and some zombies, I like the sculpts but they would be tiny compared to an older GW Halfling for instance.

     

    Hmmm, ok, thats good to know. Ok, so maybe i wont be getting the halfling maidens

  4. Gonna wait and see but I am interested in:

     

    OGRES

    * 2x female giants (110mm) 30 pounds

    * 6x female ogre warriors 20 pounds

    * Lord of the feast. female ogre character and 2 gnoblar staff w/ cauldron

     

    Halflings

    * Mounted halfling maiden 7 pounds

    * Halfling Maiden 5 pounds

     

    I am starting a halfling army using Wargames Atlantic multipart halflings. So i can use some halflings... but the helmet design is very different so i dont know if will match up well. The knights may be useful though. The Maidens would make a good wizard for the army.

  5. I will back for a couple halfling heroes, but its a bad time as i am saving for some fireforge dwarves.

     

    Still, I have a GW ogre army, so adding some female ogres would be cool. And the 210mm Giants, I wanted a gargant army... and 3 giants here are 150 euros... which less that 1 of the GW ones.

    While I'm not a huge fan of the overall design (a little too human and under-bearded) the fact that there's a multipart plastic option coming that has female Dwarves is something I never expected.


    I have never been a dwarf guy. But I like these, probably because they aren’t comically fat or with super long beards that seem like would get in the way. I mean I guess that’s why I have never played a dwarf in an rpg or collected a dwarven army. So I get why these may not appeal to classic dwarf lovers... that’s sounds weird... 

     

     I’m excited for the females too...  I like the matchlocks on the fusiliers and the flintlock pistols on the rams. This will be starting in April. I was gonna get the new GW vampire themed box game, but will likely be going in on this instead. 
     

  7. Fireforge games will be launching their dwarf faction for their Forgotten World range. I really enjoyed their northmen line which were basically game of thrones not Stark warriors. They had undead in that same Kickstarter.

     

    so these will be heroic 28mm hard plastic multipart figures. This is what’s been shown so far.

    There will also be foot troops with spears and hand weapons. And both male and female will be on sprue. 
     

    they haven’t confirmed yet, but if it follows with their other Kickstarter, there should be resin shields and resin heroes available too.

  8. Funding has been reached, so the Satyrs, Scythians and Amazons will be produced. 

     

    The $40 level gets you 2 boxes. You can choose from the fauns or centaurs they produced in the first kickstarter, or the Satyrs (32 in a box) or the amazon/scythian combined box (32 amazons and 32 scythians per box for 64 total). 

     

    If you add $20 to your pledge, you can choose a total of 4 boxes. this works out to $15/box but if you choose the Amazon/Scythian box since he is including both sets per 1 box, you are basically getting a box of 32 minis for $7.50 each....

     

    This means that if you choose the amazon/scythian box for each of your 4 choices, you get 128 amazons and 128 scythians. You can also double your pledge for $120. which would net you 8 boxes or 256 amazons and 256 scythians. There is on 59 hours left in the campaign.

  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jobhermes/goblin-miniatures-0/description

     

    .STl campaign. Its 15 euro for the whole set of 5. 4 "Goblins" and a bugbear. I think the models look great, but not really reading as goblins. 

     

    I don't have a 3D printer, but these look pretty cool so I figured someone here may be interested. They would make great halflings... I wish the creator offered a reward for printed minis...

    okay this created some questions. 

    Are you building a single structure or just planning on using it as scatter terrain? 

    or do you primarily want to triple up on vampire figures, if so for what? 

     

    Would more than one work together  with other reaper terrain such as DDS2 tower and the ghoul Pit? 

    - this possibility sent me back to look at the pictures - the doors would get repetitious, but several stair units might lead to cool scenes  

    Do I need more than one? 

     

     


    yes and yes 

     

    I actually added a 4th one. I plan on using the 4 Raven Home ruins with the one Charnel pit I got in the center. We rotate story telling. My next run is still a year off, but my recurring game sees my players going to a Ghoul kingdom following a group of vampire that kidnapped one of the pc’s nieces (the pc and niece are natural werewolves). So I will definitely be using the vampires as well...

     

    but the terrain looks like I can get a lot of general use out of it. And $14 is a steal. I kick myself for not grabbing at least one more pit or bridge.

    Kind of a moot point now, it's no longer on the site I see:(

     I had a feeling it was on the way out, glad I grabbed # 4 when I did then

  11. The pledge manager just opened. My one guy was estimated to cost €7 shipping but was €13... the mini was €9 so shipping cost more than the mini... oh well, but that convinced me to only stick with the one.

    I wouldn't mind buying a few of those minis, but the game iself?   no. 

     

    Actually an 'All the Heroes' pledge would be just right... 

    agreed on both counts. And apparently others feel the same way as the question about just a pledge for minis has been asked several times on the Kickstarter but the creator has said no. 
     

    so yeah I’m not interested in the game, and the cost is just too high for only using the minis..,, so it’s a no go for me.
