  1. Ugh. At this for 37 minutes now, and have not gotten it to go through yet. Wave 10, here I come.

    SWAG Bags for sale when? If?

    For the lucky ones who get a bag, could someone confirm what Reaper figures are in them (besides the Sophie and Mousling)? That way folks can avoid duplicates. Thanks!
  3. B&B is an insta-back for me, and there aren’t many of those (Reaper is probably the only other). These sculpts make painting easy (or as easy as it can be), and the folks running the company are lovely (and extremely punctual). Definitely have a soft spot for that toad.

    Pre-Launch Bones 5 Excitement thread

    Hmmm... What theme would possibly involve Amazons and owl sculptures? Perhaps if we try hard enough, wisdom will come... Some sacrificial bulls probably wouldn’t hurt either.

    Amazonians by Tomb Guardians Miniatures

    I am guessing that is per figure for the pledge price plus shipping for a full pledge (so if there were 10 figures, a pledge plus shipping would be $66.90). At least that is the info they had on their last KS as i recall (and then decreased it as stretch goals were added).

    Looks like July 24th for these. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tombguardians/305078254?ref=cwnqeh&token=ded10eaf

    It is a very fine looking stable and would go quite well with the very fine looking cottages and windmill sitting on my table waiting for some paint (a condition in which they are, sadly, far from alone). I need somewhere for my Burrows and Badgers figures to commit adorable fluffy murder after all.

    Looks like this one is live now. And modular. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ttw-altburg-stable/tabletop-worlds-altburg-stable-32mm-resin-cast-terrain

    Katai The Chinese Army Kensei Kickstarter

    Thanks for the info! And strong work on the painting. Good to know they look ok alongside Reaper. Obviously 28mm means different things to different companies. Are there any specific figures besides the conquistadors that you really like? And any thoughts on the game system?

    Glitterwolf (or anyone else), Considering upgrading. How have you found the quality on these vs (day) Reaper. And have they been on time (at least in KS terms)? They seem a little disorganized. Thanks! ian

    First Legion Fantasy Line

    About 30 hours left on this one, for anyone who was considering.

    Tomb guardians LOST DWARVEN MINES tiles 6/11

    I got their set of dwarves, and the quality is definitely there (and delivery was prompt, with a free bonus model). No experience with them on KS. Owner seems genuinely enthusiastic about the hobby.

    First Legion Fantasy Line

    Definitely appreciate the extra clarity on the company’s history. The project is more ambitious than average, and I think a lot of folks get a bit leery about that since there’s a pretty regular history of ambitious mini projects running into trouble. That said, it seems that often comes from throwing so many stretch goals and additional products into the mix mid-KS that project scale creep or post-KS economics make the project impossible. I like free extras as much as anyone else, but (paradoxically) the treatment of stretch goals here is also a source of reassurance. The milestones have held firm. Many creators hit the panic button and drop milestones to try to generate more momentum (and get themselves in trouble in terms of margins). That this hasn’t happened suggests a company that knows its economics and is sticking with them. Not that I’m not hoping for a bit of a late surge of course (what is it that has the scythe?)... So I’m in for a few sets, which is a pretty big investment in the unknown (although below my annual Reaper budget). I would also point out that topping 100k is actually pretty good for a minis-only project with no game attached (at least in recent years). So not something to be disheartened by. As you say, the right way to build a business is to get quality products out there and let them speak for themselves. And delivering on one ambitious KS range will be pretty huge when people consider whether to invest in the next one.
  14. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/firstlegion/first-legion-heroic-scale-28mm-fantasy-figures?ref=discovery&term=First legion Just ran across this. I’m not familiar with the company, but they seem pretty established in the historical line. Anyone have thoughts on these? The price per figure seems reasonable for good resin.
  15. I’d usually use hot water for the metal, as with Bones. I think it makes the metal a little more pliable so the margin of error between bending and breaking is more forgiving. And then skip the cold water and let it come to room temp on its own. And yeah. That troll is a bit of a project just to get ready for paint.
