    Black Crab Miniatures 2, necropolis scum

    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.

    The Curse of Hollow Hills - Crippled God Foundry

    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.
  10. That was...different
  11. Here's a pic I posted a while back: I only dry fit it together, and so some fangy bits are still on their sprues near the head. It needs some boiling, the base was warped, but it's a very nice looking piece. That's a man-sized old-school bones mini on the front for scale.
  12. I wasn't that interested in Dreadmere, in fact I almost passed on it. I really wanted to see how the turtle turned out though, and now it's my favorite of the expansions in this kickstarter. The minis are all have a lot of character, they feel like they all have backstories related to living in a hard-scrabble coastal community of retired pirates and brigands. And great timing for D&D fans. With the Ghosts of Saltmarsh adventure coming out next month I think the minis will get plenty of use. Of course the Stygian Barge expansion might also be useful...
  13. Good catch! It looks like both hands are the same, it's just her finger positions. Maybe she is finger-tutting. I do like the new giants. But I LOVED the concept art giants.
  14. I don't like the wizkids owlbear at all, it doesn't look like an owlbear to me at all. Yeti is a good call for that figure, walking around like a humanoid. I always pictured them moving around on all fours like a bear, and only rising to attack or intimidate. Ironically though, it does seem closer to how the original owlbear moved around: Of course that guy was a sad looking abomination and quickly forgotten about as soon as a better artist took a crack at one (and I say that as someone who generally loves the old school monster manual art).
  15. The object above the oars is a pair of fishes. They could go anywhere, perhaps beside the net, but atop the bait bucket seems like the best spot.
