  8. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/awakenrealms/the-edge-dawnfall-v16?ref=discovery About The Edge: Dawnfall is new miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms for 1-4 players. It was created by Michał Oracz (man behind 13 years of Neuroshima Hex and recent hit Cry Havoc) and it brings next level of competitive gameplay to the table. Fresh, exciting, pure and rewarding. It’s a living organism with a very passionate community. It’s thousands of hours of development, hundreds of unique art pieces, over hundreds of pages of rich and unique campaigns, 7 extremely asymmetric and unique factions and finally and most importantly a fast, dynamic and very exciting skirmish game with tons of cinematic skills and turn the tide moments. This is a second Edge the Boadgame Kicstarter, a reprint of our naive 2016 kickstarter promise of an unreasonably high amount of content that not only we still managed to reach, but even overdeliver. It’s our biggest and most ambitious project yet, it’s our favorite child, our blood tears and sweat. It’s a Beast!
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/durginpaintforge/the-second-government-of-inneath?ref=discovery_category_newest About [...] In the tragic accident of 2006, the world lost the renowned Professor De Carli, but we did not lose his spiritual heritage. While he gained his fame for being the first to theorise the so-called ‘Scale of happiness’, in the final years of his life, the holistic researcher utterly devoted his body and soul to the study of an equally mysterious phenomenon: ‘The swamp of the second-born'. It is widely known, at least in the creative sphere, that successfully duplicating a piece of work is a very difficult undertaking. Many promising artists, even those who experienced outstanding success with their first piece of work, have found themselves mired with Artax in this deadly swamp. I know, I know, that’s a low blow. However, or so the never-too-late Prof. De Carli expressed in front of the three hundred thousand students of the University of Turin during his celebrated lectio magistralis of 2004, "No road will be inaccessible to those who travel it animated by the fire of passion. No road except Corso Grosseto that is." Welcome to this new, crazy campaign by Durgin Paint Forge, mighty backers! We have worked hard over the past years to create a new range of miniatures capable of making your little heart race at a million beats a minute. At long last, here we are, eager to throw ourselves into this new adventure like a lemming on the edge of a cliff! With ‘The Second Government of Inneath’, we want to repeat the wonderful experience of two years ago and, if possible, raise the bar a few notches. Just as with ‘The Iron Crows’, our goal has been to make you fall in love with us and our creations, "The Second Government of Inneath" was born to remind you that, despite the passing of years, in our eyes, you are still as beautiful as the day we met. We have a single purpose: to create miniatures that are worthy of great heights. Or, at least metaphorically; in as much as 32mm miniatures can be. If you took part in our previous Kickstarter (the blessing of Grundur be upon you!), you already have proof of how uncompromising we are when it comes to the quality of our products. On the other hand, if this is your first experience with us then you are even luckier! Now we have two more years of creative and technical experience that give us a firm belief that this Kickstarter will be even better than the last. PLAY 3d prints! NDT: we strongly believe that humans have different heights. Or at least, this is what I learned when I met a Latvian guy and I seemed like his backpack, comparing our heights. For this reason, our human characters represent individuals with different heights and their miniatures reflect this concept, going approximately from 34 to 41mm size. Have I failed to dismiss your doubts? Feel free to write to us at [email protected] if you have any more questions! The rules of the game are simple: 20 characters, 5 bundles and a large assortment of stretch goals ready to break into your bundle like a commando behind enemy lines. You will be able to support this project and contribute to the success of this range in three ways: you can select the miniatures you like individually, pounce on the convenient bundles for some bulk savings or, if you have an impassioned heart but only a few doubloons in your pocket, we would greatly appreciate if you could share this project far and wide, to wherever you think people might be interested. If you are only interested in some specific miniatures from the range, take a look at the table below, crack out a sheet of paper, a pencil and some rounded-tip scissors. Note down the miniatures that interest you and add up their individual prices. Their total will be the amount that you will need to insert as your pledge amount. After the campaign is completed, we will send out a pledge manager in which you will be able to sort out the details of which miniatures you want. We have 5 bundles available: Bluecoat Bundle, Redcoat Bundle, Arcane Bundle, Mighty Mega Box and Friendly Mega Box! If you are interested in buying a bundle, simply select the appropriate pledge and enjoy the anticipation of that little box of goodies being dropped on your doorstep (if you still have those scissors ready, you could cut out some nice origami to pass the time!). "What if I want to buy more bundles? Or add more miniatures to my bundle?" Easier than shooting an Elf in a barrel (don't feel bad, he deserves it). Just select the reward you are interested in, then modify your pledge by adding the value of the miniatures or any other bundles you want to add; voila!

  11. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/waylaid-by-bandits-volume-2/description Story It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square. WANTED: LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery. REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member. Speculation and rumour was rife! Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam? Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women! Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit. But still the robberies and raids continued... Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games. Waylaid by Bandits Volume One You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge. Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'. You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals! Waylaid by Bandits Volume One It's only an 11 day project, so hury up and back.
  12. EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more! Some miniatures from previous projects... Why are we making more miniatures? Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush.... And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on. We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too. Why we need your help... We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started. About the miniatures... There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example. Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted. The Pledges We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day! ^Minimum of £10 Pledge Level: The Great £40 Pledge Level: The Small £64 Pledge Level: All In £99 Original post:
  13. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/805848592/hs-stencil-system-wave-3-from-anarchy-models/description About Note: Once this campaign is over, all our stencils will be available at anarchymodels After the great success of our previous campaigns, we have been busy shipping stencils worldwide, but now its time to head back to kickstarter to expand the range even further. As always, our organic patterned "creature features" designs have been very popular, and even after expanding the range last campaign people still want more. So we are bringing several more designs to that range, as well as a few other requested items. Time permitting, we may even be able to squeeze in some requests, so please private message us if you have any. Although these videos are from our now current range, they are used in a similar way to the new kickstarter stencils. New videos coming soon. . HS stencils are: Fully re-usable - With proper care, HS Stencils will last for years. Semi-transparent - You can see where you are putting the stencil. Washable and solvent proof- Simply clean with a suitable substance for the paint you are using. (cleaning video at the bottom of the page) Thin and flexible- Will produce a softer edge - In some cases you may not want a really crisp edge like our HD stencils provide. Not sticky - HS are used either freehand or by taping to the model/item. Quick to use - you do not have to spend time making sure the stencil is stuck to the item, and in some cases you may not need to mask off the rest of the item. Easy to use - create amazing paintwork, quickly, with even a basic level of skill. Best used with an airbrush . New Designs List: Please see the New Designs area (below the freebies) for pictures. The New HS designs for this project are: #36 - Tri Grid ==Micro== #37 - Brickwork ==Micro== #38 - Negative Hex Mesh Small + Mini #39 - Anarchists Toolbox 2 #40 - Tri Grid Small + Mini #41 - Creature Features - Less Mottled #42 - Creature Features - Blotchy #43 - Brickwork Small + Mini #44 - Creature Features - Bigger Mottled #45 - Creature Features - Blotchy ==Micro== #46 - Creature Features -??????? #47 - Creature Features -??????? #48 - Creature Features -??????? ??????? = Hopefully unlocked as the campaign progresses I have some stencils from Wave 2, and they look good. The only eason I haven't really done anything with them is that I'm not all that good with an airbrush...
  14. Just wanted to update this thread that we are now live! Kickstarter Just wanted to start this topic to let everyone know that we have a new Kickstarter planned for next month! Rise of the Mimics 2, our own brand of wacky Mimics and matching non Mimic accessories will be expanding on Kickstarter in May!
  15. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/hobgoblin-raiding-party?ref=discovery_category_newest That might hurt ... Midlam always has some very nice sculpts, great castings and timely delivery ... and I do not have enough Hobgoblins ... (i.e. less than 20).
  16. So.. I fell over this. It's... well, go look for yourselves; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/159974695/badbandana-6-pizza-dragons ... pizza and dragons. Where have I seen this notion before..? I can't quite... >.>
  17. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/iscreamart/the-ring-the-innovative-way-to-help-you-paint-your Found this on kickstarter, seems a very useful handle, the idea of the ring is super and I find that the way it turn upside-down it's brilliant! Maybe the shipping for EU it's a bit too hight considering it ship from UK... but at least it is not overpriced. I'm in for the early basic :)
  18. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/josemox/forever-myths-fallen-maidens?ref=discovery&term=miniatures Morana, 75 mm Morana was once a champion of the sacred order of the Radiant Fist. During a mission, the dark wizard Shahrivar cast a curse over her and traped her soul in a gem. Since then his body has become the wizard´s tool, bringing death and disease wherever she goes. Akanksha, 75 mm Heiress to the throne of Shin Kingdom was always known for her diplomatic skills and her sword mastery. In one of her many diplomatic meetings, she received as a gift a pendant in the shape of a heart and, since then, there has been no desire which have refused or a lover that have rejected. It must be said that the tensions between the neighbouring kingdoms are more relaxed than ever. Najwa, 75 mm At another time, Najwa was the high priestess in the Sharated Temple. The Great Tremorrevealed an ancient buried room in the depths of the temple that contained writings from a thousand years ago. She was the first to study them and learned dark and forbidden knowledge which poisoned her body and soul. The high wizard Lucianus tried to save her but it was too late, she destroyed the temple and was lost in the night. Here you can see a comparative image of the projected height for the miniatures in both versions. Has you can see, the 75 mm scale will offer an excellent miniature for your shelf and the 32 mm scale will fit in any boardgame and wargames that you can imagine. In adition, some parts have been changed from the 75 mm scale to the 32 mm scale to avoid too small details and give the best painting experience. Here you can see the reward levels offered in this campaign. You can find the full information about every offer in the reward list of the campaign and, if you have any doubt, don´t hesitate to ask. Here you can see the stretch goals that are planned for this campaign and they correspond to new extra characters that will be fully revealed during the campaign. When we reach the corresponding objective, their miniatures in both versions will be added to the available Add-Ons. All those who opt for the Fallen Maidens reward may access to a special offer of these characters. Although only tree Strech goals are scheduled, I would add new characters in case the campaign reached higher goals. If this happens I will consider your suggestions to create new characters that captivate you. The add-ons are additional items you may be interested in adding to the rewards that correspond to your pledge level. To include an add-on, simply add its specified value in € to the amount of your pledge. When the campaign ends you will receive the backer survey where you will be able to specify which add-ons you want to include. Here you will find the available fantasy football products. If you missed the Asgard´s Sons campaign, this is your chance to get them and obtain exclusive characters. All shipping will be delivered by ordinary postal mail. How is it possible that there is a great disparity in the size of the packages, the shipping costs will be calculated according to each order to be fair. When the campaign ends and once the survey is done, the backers will be contacted to collect the shipping costs through Paypal just before sending each order. We can not ship to PO Boxes. If you come to Pamplona to pick up your order you will save these expenses and we can also meet in person! So you can get an idea of how much these costs will be, here you have a list of the estimated value of the shipments. I will do my best to keep these cost to the minimum possible. The shipping is planned to begin in March 2020. However, depending on the production requirements, it might change. For those who opt for the Add-Ons level, it is possible that they receive their rewards sooner, It will depend if I have already available what they want to purchase or it must be manufactured. Further information will be posted on the updates of this project. The master model of every miniature will be printed by 3DA Impresiones, a company that specializes in prototype. The resin miniatures will be manufactured by GRX Creations known by his high quality. Risks and challenges All designs are not a final product and can suffer changes during the manufacturing process. Due to production requirements, the planned date to begin the shipping process might be changed due to the amount of the pieces needed and other factors out of my control. However, I will keep you updated on any changes. If you do not accept the terms of the campaign, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.

  19. <<<MOD>>> Commerce Link Removed <<<>>> From The Site... A collection of 28mm scaled miniatures based on the Midgard campaign setting as well as the Tome of Beasts from Kobold Press! Link Here "...Our 'Core Funding Group' consists of 20 creatures from the Kobold Press universe. Many of these are already in our hands and have had casts made of them. Funding this Kickstarter will not only allow us to pay for licensing for these miniatures, but will also pay for further molding and casting costs. In addition to the Core Funding Group you will see that we have outlined Stretch Goals for an additional 40 miniatures. We believe that these figures, combined with the Core Funding Group, represent some of the most interesting creatures to be introduced to 5th Edition Roleplaying, and we want to deliver them to you! Do not wait to pledge for this one!! If you will notice we have several 'Early Bird' types of funding groups, with a plan to add more as we dig deeper into stretch goals. The price for any additional groups will reflect the number of minis that are unlocked. This means the only way to get the full 'one of everything' effect is to lock yourself into those pledge groups early!..."
  20. Preview page up. Launches on the 20th. I always need more Undead, so this is probably an auto-buy. Anyone have experience with Fireforge? The humans look overly modular to me (but cool), but the Undead line looks great! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fireforgegames/927490714?ref=558303&amp;token=630d2b53
  21. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915262526/fred-perrys-gold-digger-frederal-reserve-gold-bric It's time to print and release the newest volume of the GOLD BRICK SERIES, the GOLD DIGGER FREDeral Reserve which compiles a multitude of the Gold Digger spin-offs and ancillary series. If you supported the previous Gold Bricks, thank you very much, and we hope you support this campaign too. With a load of great standalone and continuity pickup stories, this collection makes a great jumping-on point for any new readers, as well as awesome reading for longtime fans. THESE ISSUES HAVE NEVER BEEN COLLECTED INTO ONE VOLUME BEFORE. Between its black-and-white and full-color issues, the main Gold Digger series is fast approaching the 300-issue mark and is going strong! (Including material like that being compiled into the FREDeral Reserve, GD is already well past that milestone!) If you're not familiar with us, my name is Joeming Dunn, and I run Antarctic Press, a small, independent comic company started in 1984. I have personally collected comics of almost every type and genre since 1974, and I can say that during the past 30 years, we have published some of the greatest and best independent comics out there. Our publishing history includes titles like Gold Digger and Ninja High School. The comic industry has changed over the years, so we have started this Kickstarter program to help introduce new projects from our talented group of creators. Prominent among the many series we have published over the years is Fred Perry's ingenious title, Gold Digger, which Fred describes as a mixture of Indiana Jones and Final Fantasy. The idea for Gold Digger was first conceived during Fred's tour of duty in the first Gulf War, and it debuted in Antarctic Press's anthology comic, Mangazine, in 1991. A four-issue miniseries followed in 1992, and a regular monthly black-and-white series followed starting in 1993. The current color series began in 1999 and has continued since then. It is the second-longest-running solo-created title in the industry. Among comic books with female leads, its run is second only to Wonder Woman. In 2013, Fred was honored at Comic Con International in San Diego, where he received an Inkpot Award for his work on Gold Digger. Over the past years, we have released other Gold Bricks as Kickstarter projects. This Gold Brick is outside the numbering system of the main-series Bricks, so no potentially confusing volume numbers this time! If you haven't seen or read Gold Digger, this is your chance to enjoy one of the best and longest-running ongoing series in comics. Like the other Bricks, this one lets new readers join in easily, so you don't have to be shy! Over the next few years, we'll go back to reprint the other volumes to match the new Kickstarter printings' format. We want everyone to have nice editions. In addition to reasons already mentioned, during previous campaigns, many backers have asked us to collect these series, since many of these issues are difficult to find. So what is included in this Gold Brick? A Science Affair Asrial vs Cheetah GD Minus 18 Gina vs Penny (GvP) Gold Digger Dreadwing's Mymior Gold Digger Adventures WHEW...that's quite a line up. What are we going to do with the Kickstarter money? Plain and simple, we're going to print and ship the Gold Digger FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick. The FREDeral Reserve Gold Brick is over 600 pages, many of which are in full color. Printing the actual books is the biggest single expense. The first print run of a typical Gold Brick is quite costly, as most printers require a minimum run to make it cost-effective. We are thus using Kickstarter to assist us with those costs. If the amount seems high, you must remember that we are printing at least a thousand copies of a 600+ page book. Another cost is shipping: First we will have to ship the books from the printer to our offices, and once we get them, send copies to all our supporters and distributors. Several thousand pounds of books represents a significant shipping expense. Here is a breakdown of our expenses. Printing: $12,500 (which includes hard and softcover) Shipping: $3,000 (Sending a 600-page book is costly, especially overseas. The cost for shipping just one copy overseas is now around $34.) Fees: $1500 (Kickstarter takes their fees off the top) Handling/Supplies: $1500 (We have to pay for boxes and pay people to pack those boxes.) That does not include cost for sending the large PDF files to all the supporters and other miscellaneous costs. Those basic expenses total $18,500. So what do you get? The brick is 6 x 9 inches and will contain AT LEAST the series we mentioned above.
  22. About Welcome to the world of Nemesis! This new board game, designed by Adam Kwapiński, is the result of a collaboration between Awaken Realms (creators of This War of Mine: TBG, The Edge: Dawnfall and Lords of Hellas) and Rebel (creators of Drako, Dream Home and K2) .It's a 1-5 players semi-cooperative Sci-Fi horror where you and your friends try to survive while attempting to fulfill your secret objectives that may sometimes collide. It will also enable full co-op as well as solo play experience. Nemesis offers one-of-a-kind gameplay, that you currently won't find anywhere else in the board game world. It has been in professional development for over three years, so it already plays very well, provides good balance and contains a multitude of interesting mechanics, as proven by the prototype reviews below. If you like Sci-Fi survival settings and ships swarming with alien life forms, you will love it - and if that genre was never on your radar, this game is likely to change your mind! *We will be lagging a little bit with the Stretch Goals presentation due to too high funding speed! *Out of all reviews / movies two were paid: Cardboard Rhino (rules presentation / tutorial how to play that took a lot of time to make!) and Man vs Meeple (which is a preview showing the game in detail). All other videos were not paid.
  23. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/earthworm-jim-the-comic-book/x/10803452#/ Overview Earthworm Jim has been a beloved character in video games since his launch in 1994, but due to the limitations of cartridge space, his epic story was never properly told.

The evil Queen of Insectica has a super-suit invented that is capable of altering the universe when it is stolen by her ugly sister, Princess What's-Her-Name... Earthworm Jim... from the creator of Earthworm Jim! My name is Doug TenNapel and I created Earthworm Jim 26 years ago. Though "EWJ" appeared in award winning video games, an animated series and a toy line, his epic story has yet to be told! We all know the character, but none of us know the story. This deficit in the universe ends NOW! (P.S. Do sign up for the Earthworm Jim Comic mailing list! http://earthwormjimcomic.com/ ) For the first time in 27 years I am crafting an epic graphic novel worthy of the true fans of Earthworm Jim in a multi-book set! Let's launch the cow! My last Indiegogo campaign was for a comic book called Bigfoot Bill and my backers blew me away by providing $196k in funding! Together, we were able to make a hard bound, giant book with over-the-top gold-leafing and embossing on the cover. With your help, we can make Earthworm Jim: LAUNCH THE COW a beautiful volume that is a work of art unto itself. It goes on the coffee table, not some box of wrinkled, floppy comics in the basement. This story will be a sprawling love letter to the fans of Earthworm Jim! YOU are my Plan A. There is no other plan! Making a big, beautiful book requires a lot of funding. Paper costs go up every year, and I only use top quality end sheets, cover stock and print work. It's made in America in my state so I can oversee every step of production. The book will start as a handsome hardbound edition, oversized at 9" x 12" and 160 pages long! It documents the origins of the super suit and how it got to earth to make our favorite hero. You'll see some familiar characters ripped straight out of the video game like: Peter Puppy, Princess What's-Her-Name, Psycrow, the hideous Professor Monkey for a Head, Queen Slug-for-a-Butt and Evil the Cat! The Making Of EARTHWORM JIM Book! Your Earthworm Jim: Launch the Cow comic is lonely and needs a companion... The "Making Of The Earthworm Jim Book" is a perfect companion to the comic bookk. It will also be hardbound, 9" x 12" and starts at 64 pages (But I KNOW we can do a lot better than that!). It has a comprehensive backstory on all of the main characters and villains. I think it's tacky to have too much expository dialogue on everyone's past, so it's better to unfurl that in this book. I give you the why behind the entire Earthworm Jim universe... and yes, I'm building a universe! I recently had a reunion with the whole Earthworm Jim game team and I got to interview everyone. We talked about how Earthworm Jim came to be and I will document that many close calls and freak accidents that had to fall into place for it to happen. There will be team bios, and a catch up on what everyone has been doing over the last 25 years since we got together. The Shiny Team section of the book has portraits of the talented artists, programmers and musician and the photos were even taken by David Perry the Earthworm Jim programmer! I'll show every step of the comic book's production, from raw ideas on the white board to printing every notecard I used in breaking down the story. You'll see the raw pencilled pages, inked pages with washes applied and I even scan my script pages that are covered in pencil re-writes! Who remembers this cartridge and packaging art by Mike Koelsch...? I've asked Mike Koelsch to paint a new "90s-style EWJ cover" for the Making Of book! Koelsch will give a step-by-step story on how he illustrated EWJ including a sneak peek into his studio madness. (Check out Koelsch's website here: http://www.sporkunltd.com/) He has also allowed me to make prints of the cover and the original is available on our highest backer tier. I'll put it in a beautiful frame with matting so it's ready to hang in your home! Here's Mike giving step by step progress on the cover: I've got perks where you can own the original comic pages, the book covers and enjoy frame-worthy prints plus a perk where I will draw you an original signed Earthworm Jim head-sketch in your book! 3 ART PRINTS! I hope to make three collectable prints with each Earthworm Jim book by guest artists, and these are the first three. Note: They will only be offered on this campaign and won't be offered on any future campaigns. The first is by Mike Koelsch, the artist who did all of the cartridge and packaging illustrations for Earthworm Jim 1 and 2. The next two are from the CreatureBox boys Greg and Dave! Click here to learn more about CreatureBox: http://creaturebox.com/ FUND THE TEAM: The funds will go to a costly print run, my letterer Eric Weathers, flatter Radka Kavalcova, my colorist Katherine Garner, book designer Joe Potter and shipping fees. Here's a sampling of the team's test pages so far: The Art of Bookmaking I've spent years making graphic novels and Earthworm Jim is probably my most well-known creation, yet his story hasn't been told. This is my chance to do the best job I can to entertain you and your backing will make this book a fantastic work of art. I don't see comics as disposable rags made to read once then toss aside. I spend a lot of time writing and story and crafting every page and merely reading some thin floppy or a PDF isn't the experience I'm going for. This book will be something you can enjoy for a lifetime, it's literature, not pop-garbage and I want to stand on the tip-toes of my ability to reach for the highest possible craft I can accomplish! My track record in this arena has few peers. I Kickstarted two sketchbook archives where we managed leather covers, gold gilded edges and the best printing money can buy. These are one-of-a-kind collector's items that are not available in stores. The book honors the backers who made them happen. I write for the most diverse audience imaginable, and the backers constantly tell me, "I got more than I paid for!" If you look at my books that are made outside of Indiegogo, you'll see that they don't have the over-the-top printing production I can pull off through crowd funding. Only through Indiegogo will you find foil-stamped gold cover art, UV gloss coatings, embossing and de-bossing! I hope to explore new printing techniques that make these hard bound books the kind of items you show off to your friends with a durability that ensures a great re-read for the rest of your life! For more on the Bigfoot Bill campaign click here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/doug-tennapel-s-bigfoot-bill-graphic-novel/x/838702#/ I spend a lot of time putting these books together, it's time away from my family and I've dedicated my art philosophy and have the highest commitment to being transparent to my backers, include them in every step of the process and take the moral contract between backer & creator seriously. Why Beale Air Force Base? When Crew Chief Matt Konar was allowed to choose any artist to paint the nose art on his KC135 refueling plane he wanted something like his favorite character Earthworm Jim! A friend put us in contact, and I designed the artwork for the plane and attended the commissioning ceremony on May 5th. The whole base came out and I felt so humbled to get to help America's finest that I wanted to do something special for those folks and give YOU that same feeling. By backing the Beale Air Force tier, I hope to send one copy of the Earthworm Jim comic to all 800 people on that base just in time for Christmas! As a thank you, I will send you a signed book! Here's a sample page from the comic:
  24. Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/399883540/orc-warband-collectors-by-yedharo-and-gt-studio-cr Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures. Something for everyone! I got the early bird 4 bust deal. FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.
  25. Live Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/cthulhu-death-may-die Two week campaign Information is growing on Cmon page and BGG. This rings all the right bells and is likely to mug me quite severely. From the Facebook announcement: "The ritual has started, and there’s no stopping it now. The only hope for the Investigators…and the rest of the world for that matter, is to disrupt it just enough so that when the Elder One arrives, it will be vulnerable for a split second. Just long enough to kill it! They’ll get their chance when Cthulhu: Death May Die comes to Kickstarter on July 10 at 3 PM EST. The new game from CMON and Guillotine Games combines the creative talents of Eric M. Lang and Rob Daviau. Stay tuned as we reveal more about the Investigators risking their lives and the unspeakable horrors they will face off against." Or as Mr. Lang says in interviews, the game where you "shoot Cthulhu in the face."
