  1. I got my minis yesterday in Canada. They are nice, though definitely not the same quality as the resin minis I got from their web store last year. I'd say they are comparable to Mythic Battles or CMON, though not quite as good. There were a few mostly minor errors, some small flash lines and a couple voids. They came in nice boxes, way too big but probably designed to stand out at retail. They also had a few ks exclusives that also came in an oversized box, a real waste since they aren't intended for retail. A blister pack would have been plenty for hard plastic minis. All the figures came pre-assembled, assembly was well done though. The ks exclusives: These guys are apparently Firbolgs, and maybe clones? I don't know the lore, I just backed for some nice looking minis. Anyway, they are very friendly looking, and would make good bartenders or merchants, even bugbears or ogres. The warrior type (an artificer apparently) is a great figure, his face is very similar to the Reaper bones guy in the background. The robot taking notes reminded me of the snarfquest robot. The shininess seems to be an artifact of the camera, they don't actually look or feel shiny. Here's a rear shot of a couple of the exclusives: On the left is Taryon. He's a very nice looking mini with some great details. In the middle is a Mythic Battles troop to compare detail and size. On the right is a firbolg, you can see a flash line down his back, this was the worst spot of it on these minis, so not bad at all. This is the extremely oversized/wasteful package for the ks exclusives: They also came in a cardboard box. This is the Mighty Nein set: Overall a nice looking group. I am particularly fond of the monk, she could also pass as a wizard or a barbarian. The bard has a cat familiar around his ankles. The male tiefling would make a good Marko from Saga. The female tiefling though has a poorly made head. Her horns are hard to follow and her face is oddly shaped with oversized cheeks. She's the only mini from this ks I'm really disappointed in, though she isn't so far from the render so maybe it's a design choice. This is the Vox Machina set: The Golden Compass escapee looks out of place, but it's an armoured bear, so it's pretty awesome even if his details are a little soft and he has a bit of flash on his head. The archer has a bit of a baby face but is a good looking mini that should see plenty of use. The druid is my favorite mini, she reminds me of Nelvana of the Northern Lights. The gunman is quite nice as well, he looks like he escaped from a video game. Here's a close up of some of the Vox Machina characters: My camera was a bit too close which is why there is an orange tint. The two little minis are supposed to be gnomes, but they don't look anything alike racially. The male has a huge, joker like rictus grin, and the female has not just a baby face but a porcelain doll baby face. They are both good figures though. The rogue's nose is a bit miscast, a shame because he has a very nice face and is a good looking figure otherwise. There's nothing wrong with the druid, I just left her in the shot because she's my favorite.

    Jurassic World Miniature Game

    Not that I'm recommending this ks or anything, but I think that is a pretty common disclaimer for any licensed project. And even if it isn't on the project page, you can be sure one exists anyway. Most companies are pretty protective of their IPs. They have a license to make the game or they'd likely already be shut down, the licensor approval is referring to specific minis, card art, box art, etc. For instance the Street Fighter project I backed has this: " Products presented on this Kickstarter page and during the campaign may be subject to change in order to meet the expectations of the ©CAPCOM CO., LTD. license agreement." I know I've seen a few projects run into delays thanks to needing licensor approval on specific bits.

    Arcknight rpg spell effect templates 2.0

    I backed their first spell effects kickstarter. They were really really late for some sets. I only backed for wizard set though which was one of the first fulfilled (3-4 months late). The design work should be all done for this one so hopefully it shouldn't be so long this time. The finished product is absolutely fantastic. It is, by far, the most used kickstarter product I've ever bought. It is so simple to pull out the transparent template whenever adjudicating a spell effect (or breath weapon etc.). And the product looks really nice and is very durable. It is made with very sturdy plastic, so sturdy that it was a pain to cut (seriously, I'd cut a couple then need to rest my scissor hand). I got mine at the end of 2016, so I've had them for 2.5 years and they don't show any signs of wear and tear even though I have a fairly rambunctious D&D group and as I said, they get used a lot. This set is precut so its an easy recommend from me. However international shipping is insane. Apparently they had a lot of lost packages for the first ks so they are shipping everything insured this time. I got four of their big sheets shipped to Canada for $11 with the first project, it's $38 for three this time around. It does look like they have reserve option so you can pick a cheaper shipping method after the project end.

    Eternalverse Heroines Miniature Collection

    They could definitely benefit from a better paint job and photos. Also, one mini is €5 whilst four are €25, so that doesn't make a lot of sense. Still, they are cute minis and a nice idea.

    Nocturna N-Paint & Fantasy Figures

    Seems like an easily fixable issue, they'd just have to have a "northern" shipping option in their pledge manager to allow shipping a couple months later for those worried. Given typical ks delays April thru June seems more likely anyway. Someone should suggest something along those lines. At a minimum it'd be a good test of how they react to customer feedback.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    I stayed in for this. I really like the look of the minis and it's a very underrepresented era in my collection.
  7. They are interesting. Here's a link to the project page if anyone is curious: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2004599158/black-crab-miniatures-2 The concept art for the witch looks fascinating and horrible all at once. I don't even want to post it here. Anyone looking for nightmare fuel can check out the ks.

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    Some nice looking minis here. A couple things are odd though. A single human sized mini sells for $15, but a group of 10 sell for $18? Still, it's the sameish formula they used for Dragon Empire, and that seems to have been pretty successful. Any backers from that project around who can give some feedback? That priestess on a wyvern looks way too front heavy for those little legs. I think that'd be a huge breaking risk. I'll probably talk myself into taking a chance on a raptor patrol (though it seems to be at a similar unbalanced weight/breakage problem to the wyvern). But then if I do that I'll have to give some serious consideration to a set of serpent guards. And where else will you find a set of hammerhead shark veterans? And an ogre pirate in a tricorn hat atop a giant crab? *sigh* I think I have a problem...

    28mm Hard Plastic Fauns

    If you check out the concept art and renders their legs look like they are covered by leaves more than fur. It definitely looks rocky the way they painted them. They just did a nice rework of the main page. They show contents of pledges, and mention that the box of 20 includes male and female figures. The reason only males are shown is that's the only sprue they've produced so far.

    28mm Hard Plastic Fauns

    I backed their first project which failed to fund. This relaunch has a higher funding goal and lower cost per model (the first was $25 for 10 fauns, this is $30 for 20 with a pewter minotaur). The time since the first project was well spent, the page looks a lot better this time around. For anyone interested, the first project had a great updates section, with tons of concept art and early renders. It's a good look behind the curtain for what goes into a project like this. Here's a link to check them out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rgdgaming/plastic-injection-mold-for-32mm-fantasy-faun-minia/updates Hopefully it will fund and hit some stretch goals, the females were a lovely design and the centaur options look good as well. I'm am not sure how you get 20 fauns from sprues of three though...

    Galladoria Games Rise of the Mimics 2!

    I backed for an unpainted set of the first set of mimics. Then I got the painted Christmas mimic. Now I'm backing for the lazy...I mean painted set.

    Legends of Signum

    I finally got my minis yesterday. I received shipping notice three weeks ago, so it was a long journey. I was a little worried when I saw the box: It had one very bad ding on the corner. Fortunately the minis inside were well packaged and padded, so no damage done. I got the core box plus a few add-ons. I messed up and forgot to order Aria, which really bugs me because I love angelic minis. Still, I did get some nice ones. Queen Zenobia: It's a beautiful mini, but requires a lot of assembly (the wings are two pieces each). And the vent pieces that need to be removed are very thick, often thicker than the part they are attached to. For example, on the tabard visible on the front, the whole bottom piece is venting and needs to be removed, but it's much thicker and stronger than the piece it's attached to. Inez Nimble Fingers: I couldn't resist such a unique miniature. This is another one that raises some serious concerns with trimming pieces. The pegs for joining are sometimes smaller than the vents, so I'm sure at least some will break. Hopefully I can repair it without too many problems. This is Zaira the Shadow of Grand Master, the super-secret early bird mini. Also the reason I missed out on Aria, for some reason I thought she was the free mini: This is a great looking mini. She's topless, covering herself with her arm and holding a sword in the other. On the left is the base, which includes her shield, breastplate and helm. Play D&D for any length of time and you'll empathize with being caught without your armour on. She also comes with a choice of three heads, seen in the middle. Lots of pieces, but these don't look quite as rough to put together. Tara the Moonblade: Another mini that should look fantastic assembled, but she's got a lot of vents connected to small tabs that are sure to break during cutting/assembly. Finally I picked up the Forest: I could only easily assemble a few pieces without some serious cutting. There are a lot of vents everywhere needing removal. In the foreground you can see a bird that sits atop one of the bigger tree. Hopefully I can remove it from the vents without damaging it, but the venting is thicker than the legs. It's going to look great fully painted and assembled. The front right tree is two pieces, I broke a tab off when I was trying to assemble it: Fortunately it's just a tree so it's not the end of the world, but it snapped off so easily I am very concerned about the character minis. if you look closely, the left side is the tab that should have remained on the tree, the thicker part is the venting. For all I'm complaining about the vents, I'm happy with the minis. The bigger vents mean less voids, I didn't find a single flaw in these minis. I'm very glad I backed.

    Bears Head Miniatures - Fantasy Series 1

    I got my minis a couple days ago. I only picked up the Fairy Cavalry and Grace the Bard: They are very nice minis. Grace is the same height as the Bones mini, but she is standing on a very tall tab making her seem taller. The cavalry is great, I love the boar and the squirrel rider on the right, ironically neither was shown when the project was live. Here's a closer look at the squirrel rider: He's holding his hat on and has a bit of a panicked look on his face, clearly he hasn't been a squirrel rider for long. I love the personality shown. The only thing that would make it better would be a more dynamic movement for the mount to better sell the terror. Of course they are fairies, he could be the comedy relief character, there is no reason he couldn't be panicked even if the squirrel hasn't started moving yet.

    Realm of the Dragon Kickstarter is lIve

    Much clearer photography on this pair, looking good.
  15. I might jump in for a couple or three, the inquisitor, warlock and witch hunter all have their charms. The inquisitor especially looks good, a formidable woman in sensible armour. Of course if she were wearing her helm she'd probably not be sporting such a big scar.
