  1. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087306595/black-sailors-legends-of-the-jade-sea About Black Sailors: Legends of the Jade sea is a project that will expand the Black Sailors 75mm resin miniature line with new and exciting models based on the myths of the Far East. Although it is aparently planned as a four miniature line-up, we have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life. These miniatures have been designed, sculpted, and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This will allow us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery. We have learned a lot since our previous Kickstarter almost four years ago, and we wanted to see how far we could take a new campaign. We invite you to join this journey into the remote Jade Seas to discover their many wonders and some of their most iconic inhabitants. Four years after our previous campaign, we wanted to set sail again and see where the winds would take us. We have been slowly cooking this campaign for the past few years, taking care of every little nook and cranny of these miniatures, pouring our souls into each detail and texture to make each character unique. This campaign is designed as a journey of discovery, full of surprises in the form of custom kits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases. .
  2. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/procession-of-the-plague-cult A set of 13 hand sculpted 28mm scale sinister robed figures, for all of your pulp, horror and fantasy games. I backed Midlam’s Village of Witches and was very happy with them. The minis are very well cast and pretty reasonably priced. I’m particularly fond of the guy with the bells.
  3. Campaign link, because I'm awake now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gameenvy/the-worlds-most-versatile-painting-handle-and-grip?ref=user_menu About The Hobby Holder is the only all-in-one mini holding solution and the most versatile painting handle and grip on the market. And now it is better than ever with the addition of an injection molded Ergonomic Grip Mod and XL Stability Bar that seamlessly integrate with the original Hobby Holder! Since our first campaign was a smash hit last year, the original Hobby Holder All-in-one Miniature Painting Handle and Grip (Patent Pending) by Game Envy has had a global impact on miniature painting with well over 4000 painters in 54 countries now using the Hobby Holder as part of their painting arsenal! We have talked to hundreds of painters across the globe at conventions, online and in person, and we have listened to your wants and needs. Now we are back to add two new pieces to the Hobby Holder system: the Ergonomic Grip Mod for even greater control and comfort and the XL Stability Bar for more support with a wider range of miniature sizes. We are also adding more color to your desks with New Colors of the original Hobby Holder parts with a second production run! Make painting more miniatures a New Years resolution! The Hobby Holder is the World's Most Versatile, All-in-one Miniature Paint Handle And Grip The translucent blue parts are resin printed prototypes. Attach Miniatures to the Hobby Holder with Standard 28mm Bottle Caps or Even Wine Corks for Pinning. Accepts 28mm plastic caps; Citadel ™ Paint Caps; Formula P3 paint caps; and 20mm wine cork. With the innovative bottle cap attachment method, just stick your miniatures, based or unbased, to a standard soda/water bottle cap with your favorite sticky stuff (we use Loctite Fun-tak, the best blue-tak on the market!) and you can quickly and easily screw them on and off without ever touching the miniature! Perfect for batch painting because you can switch even wet miniatures without smudging. New Ergonomic Grip Mod Provides Even More Control and Comfort Tailored to How You Paint. Clicked into the Ergonomic Grip rotate your mini 360 degrees easily with one hand! The new Ergonomic Grip Mod gives even more support when attached to the bottom of the Hobby Holder Base and allows the use of the Stability Bar and Grip at the same time. Simply click in your Hobby Holder Base and start painting. The QuickClick design allows for Full 360 Degree Rotation of the Base with one hand while attached to the Grip Mod. The Ergonomic Grip Mod is two pieces and can be taken apart and weighted if desired. It also has the option to add two standard nuts to screw in the original #6-32 bolt to lock down the Hobby Holder Base and now a 1/4" bolt to attach larger platforms if desired. NEW XL Stability Bar Offers More Room For Larger Miniatures With the Same Superior Support. The New XL Stability Bar uses the same QuickClick design as the Standard Size Stability Bar and attaches right onto the Hobby Holder base in Upright or Grip modes. The XL Stability Bar accommodates miniatures with up to 70mm bases with ease and the offset finger support design allows you to attach miniatures that are even taller than the bar itself. The angle of the XL Stability Bar has been adjusted slightly so that even with the taller profile it is comfortable and easy to use with large or small hands. Ultimate Support, Brush Control and Comfort with the Original Stability Bar and NEW XL Stability Bar The stability bar rotates 360 degrees so you never have to let go of your miniatures.

  5. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806316071/batmantm-gotham-city-chronicles/comments KS only (not coming to retail as Monolith made a loss on the retail version of their Conan game) optional buys plus lots of unlocked stretch goals game roughly based on the fairly well recived Conan game engine, they did a decent job with the Conan minis too so if your into batman and have the (significant) buy in it's probably a wise pick.
  6. The New Offering from Paymaster Games and their Going Native line. Going Native: From out of the Mists is a model centered campaign that will cover different heroes, warriors, monsters and gods of the New World. Here is the link to the KS Page -
  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/russrmc/animal-adventures-tales-of-dungeons-and-doggies/description So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available... Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!
  8. If you got a few extra Argents, you could strap a set of wings to a corgi and make corgi dragons.
  9. Another awesome themed 3D print file set is up on Kickstarter, "Titans of Legend" https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1426243056/titans-of-legend?ref=user_menu Even dating to before recorded history, some of the greatest heroes and villains of myth and legend have been titanic in size. Giants, titans, and others strode the mythic landscapes, the earth quaking at their steps. Now you will be able to use your 3D printer to create 32mm scale figures of these legends, and include them in your Dungeons and Dragons campaign! Reaching forth from Greece, France, Denmark, Cornwall, and the Basque region, these giants each include additional accessories, as well as a PDF file that includes their basic story, a statistics block for Fifth Edition Dungeons and Dragons, how to run them in a typical game, and potential adventure hooks to blend them into your campaign! In addition, each of the giants includes a pre-hollowed version for resin prints, and even pre-chopped, multipart versions (hollowed and not) for smaller 3D printers. Most of them can even be used as generic giants, to use how you want in your own campaign! CONTENTS The following are the five giants, and their accessories, included as planned in the set. The Core Package includes Cormoran, Ferragut, and Grendel, while the Full Package includes all five: ARGUS Argus Panoptes is a giant of Greek myth, a cowherd that served Hera with his very life. Included with him are a generic Storm Giant based on him (with helmet and spear), and his beloved Dire Buffalo. . BASAJAUN From the Basque region of France and Spain comes the Basajaun. Moderately friendly, and creators of the various henges and standing stones, they could also be used to represent various "furry" humanoids, such as yeti. They include two Basajaun, a singe henge, double henge, freestanding menhir, and an altar stone. . CORMORAN Hailing from Cornwall, the cannibalistic and miserly Cormoran just might be immortal somehow. He includes files for two different casualties, and a ruined tavern wall. . FERRAGUT A literary giant, pun intended, the epic "Horn of Roland" includes the mighty paladin Roland's duel with the Saracen giant, Ferragut. With Ferragut comes files to print basic Saracen soldiers, as well as the mighty Roland, himself! . GRENDEL Though never fully given a physical description in the epic poem, Beowulf, the monster Grendel is, here, represented as part troll, and part giant. Whether used to represent Grendel himself, or shrunken down slightly and used as a troll, he includes the table and benches from the mead hall, Heorot, as well as his utterly epic foe, Beowulf. I really like that they're all themed encounters with monsters, heroes, and some terrain. They remind me of the "GameMastery Encounter" packs that Paizo used to make.

  11. Can it be that I'm the only one excited about THIS business? https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sjgames/the-fantasy-trip-old-school-roleplaying/description One of the first RPG systems. One of the stepping stones that launched Steve Jackson's career. The ancestor of the venerable GURPS. They're bringing back Liz Danforth, the original illustrator, and reworking and refurbishing the whole enchilada. Article on Boing Boing linked here. And it's BACK. Why are you not all immediately funding this?

  13. I've been a fan of this comic for nearly a decade now... And now its finally going to end up in my bookshelf! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/novil/sandra-and-woo-10-years-anthology-art-book/description About 10 years! Over 1000 comics! One book! ... No, wait, two books!! (+ art prints) And I’m super happy with how they turned out! Update [11 November 2018] International shipping of the books is now available!! Scroll down to the chapter “International Shipping” for all the details! Sandra and Woo readers have been asking me for a printed version for years. Now, it’s finally here, the Sandra and Woo: 10 Years anthology! It collects all 1031 comics that have been published so far. Check out the following infographic for all of its features: I guess that almost all visitors of this page are familiar with Sandra and Woo. If not, here is a short introduction to the comic strip: Sandra and Woo is a comedy webcomic about love, food, raccoons and other important stuff. Written by Oliver Knörzer (“Novil”) and drawn by Puri Andini (“Powree”), it mostly consists of short story arcs about the adventures of middle-schooler Sandra North, her talking raccoon, Woo, and their friends. You can see some of our best comics on the following pages: [1], [2], [3], [4]. Here you can see six sample pages from the anthology (pages 19, 184, 265, 334, 444, and 547): 6 sample pages from "Sandra and Woo: 10 Years" I carefully selected sketches and illustrations by Powree to fill the “holes” in the layout left by the irregular sizes of many comics. The anthology features a preface about the history of Sandra and Woo. Many of the comments below the comics include web links for further reading. Our editor Chris made sure that the English text contains no errors. But that’s not all! I also decided to publish an art book that collects illustrations of Sandra and Woo characters drawn by Powree and 50 other artists, The Art of Sandra and Woo. Most of the artwork by other artists was drawn as commissions or as entries for our yearly fanart contests. Check out the following infographic for the features of the art book: Here you can see six sample pages from the art book: 6 sample pages from "The Art of Sandra and Woo" Powree and Fredy Siloy are currently coloring over a dozen drawings for the art book that have only been available in black and white until now. A few drawings will stay in black and white because they look better this way. I carefully arranged all illustrations so that all adjacent pages have a common theme, art style or particularly pleasing color scheme. All featured artists are listed in the preface. They will receive a fair share of the profits of the art book which they agreed to beforehand. The special editions of the books come with a sketch in form of a stencil, a good fit regarding the graffiti theme of the cover. For this, I will use undiluted high-quality acrylic paint and apply it to the interior side of the cover page with a sponge brush. Beneath the stencil, I will add my signature and my favorite catchphrase from the comic: “Freedom! Justice! Cookies!” Hand-made stencil inside the special editions Several reward tiers include the PDFs of the books. The PDFs will be DRM free. The resolution in each dimension will be half of the resolution of the original PDFs used for printing. As a little goodie, I will also include the PDF of our first book that was published in 2009, Sandra and Woo 1: The Woo. If you not only want to put Sandra and Woo into your bookshelf, but also on your wall, you can get a set of art prints (mini posters). The art prints are 17 x 11 in (43 x 28 cm) large and UV coated. The set of 5 art prints contains the following ones: The set of 11 art prints contains the ones above plus the following ones: All books and art prints will be printed by Ka-Blam, a print-on-demand comic book print shop. Over the years, they have shipped over 150,000 orders and printed more than 3 million comic books. I’ve received sample copies of the anthology and the art book and I’m very pleased with the print quality! I’m particularly fond of the black and white line art of the comics. The lines are sharp, have the correct thickness and no aliasing effects. In addition, the paper is thick and has a pleasant, slightly shiny, white color. Before receiving the sample copies, I was concerned about the binding of the 550 page omnibus. But the binding also makes a very solid impression. Therefore, I saw no need to publish the anthology in two volumes. My sample copy of the anthology Ka-Blam will also be responsible for shipping all orders. I’m sure they can do it much faster and better than I could. The anthology and the art book will be ready to be printed before the end of this Kickstarter campaign! If all goes well, Ka-Blam should be able to ship the first books just a few days after the end of this Kickstarter campaign. Note that the covers for the special editions first have to be sent to me so that I can add the sketch and signature. After that, I have to send the covers back to Ka-Blam. Since Ka-Blam is located in the United States and I’m located in Germany, this will add at least a month to the total fulfillment time. If fast delivery is your top priority, you should rather get the standard editions of the books. Why does the campaign last longer than the usual 30 days? The weeks before Christmas are always very hectic. Ending my first Kickstarter campaign right during the most stressful time of the year just didn’t sound like a good idea. I wouldn’t have been able to promise a delivery in December anyway. International shipping outside the U.S. is available for the books as well! These books won’t be printed by Ka-Blam, though. Instead, they will be printed by the well-known German print shop Wir-machen-Druck.de. They will then be sent to the backers by the German fulfillment agency Aimplify.com. The shipping costs of all reward levels are: Germany: 5€ (~ $6) European Union: 10€ (~ $11) Other countries: 15 € (~ $17) In comparison, sending the books from the U.S would have cost 46€ (~ $53)! The art prints are not available for international shipping since Wir-machen-Druck.de doesn’t offer this product category. The profits (after all expenses for printing, shipping, etc.) will be used in the following order: Pay the shares of the artists featured in the art book. Pay Powree for her work on Sandra and Woo and Gaia. Increase the prize money for the upcoming massive Sandra and Woo 10 Years Artwork Contest! Risks and challenges Since the books are ready to be printed and Ka-Blam is an experienced comic book publisher, the risks involved in this project are very low. I currently see the following risks: • There’s currently no backup plan for the worst-case scenario of Ka-Blam’s printing plant burning down (or Ka-Blam going bankrupt). In this improbable case, I would look for alternative printing companies located in the United States that could fulfill the Kickstarter campaign. • I don’t know yet how sturdy the plastic piece used for the stencil is. If it breaks (multiple times), this will lead to a delay of the special editions. • I’ll go on a month-long vacation to Japan from the mid of March 2019 to the mid of April 2019. In case we get a very large amount of orders for the special editions, this could lead to a further delay.

  16. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2036377947/samael-the-raven-demon-dark-whisper-the-chronicles/description I would say this is a dream; in particular, it’s a project born 3 years ago, initially as a role-playing game (written and played successfully) but now the most important characters in this setting will come to life for collectors and painters. Every month a new story will come out and it will tell the events in this world and the Background of the various characters. I want to create a series of high quality models with a thrilling story telling that is constantly evolving. The Dark Whispers project includes a total of 8 characters, the first of these is Samael, The Raven Demon.

  20. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/963152868/skin-deep-vol-4-illumination/description About Skin Deep: Illumination is the 4th collected book of the award-winning webcomic, Skin Deep! You can read the entire comic right now online, right here! This volume collects four stories about mythical creatures living hidden from humanity in Liverpool, England. These stories are: The Bugbear Talisman: Follow Lily Snodgrass, a mischievous glaistig with a flare for pranks, as she finally takes down her biggest rival with the help of a mysterious talisman she found in the Mysterious Items Store. Kill Them With Kindness: Rhonda Phelton gets to meet her boyfriend's mother. Her boyfriend's mother is a monster. She's also kinda mean. Reunion: A continuation of Anthony and Blanche's story from Skin Deep: Exchanges. Anthony is now living with Blanche's family as he tries to come to terms with his sudden transformation into a harpy, but it's not easy. It doesn't get any easier when Anthony's mother shows up to tell her son a big family secret. Illumination: A 3-part story continuing the main plot of Skin Deep as Jim brings Michelle, Merial, and Greg to the Liverpool Avalon in the hopes of getting answers to Michelle's random and unhelpful visions. With the help of a mysterious new friend who is unhelpfully helpful, Michelle might get the answers she needs, but might also get a whole new batch of questions. Budget Breakdown $7000 - printing 1,500 softcover books $2000 - printing 250 limited edition hardcover books $2000 - shipping from Hong Kong to Oregon $5000 - shipping to backers $3000 - estimated taxes, Kickstarter fees, incidentals The Book! This book clocks in at 227 pages and is my longest Skin Deep book yet! It's full to the brim with extra goodies you won't find online, like story notes and a character guide! (digital mockup) (digital mockup of the character guide!) The limited edition hardcover version is individually numbered with a custom book plate and a clothbound, screen printed cover. Each one comes signed and will have a unique sketch inside! Beautiful! (digital mockup) Stretch Goals! Because I want to focus on making the best book possible, if I get any extra funding, it will all go towards making the book better and higher quality! I do have a few stretch goals planned, such as: $20,000 - Gold Foil Cover on softcover book! LOCKED $25,000 - Kickstarter exclusive enamel pin (design to be announced) with every book! LOCKED FAQs Why is shipping so expensive?? - This book will be over a pound in weight and international shipping prices have gone up dramatically! As it is just lil ol' me shipping out books individually, I don't have much choice in the matter. It's as cheap as I could make it without losing money! Do the physical books come with a PDF copy? - Yes! All physical copies of Illumination also come with a PDF copy! Risks and challenges This will be the fourth book I've printed through this printer, and my 8th Kickstarter. There are always unforeseen issues that come up with this sort of project, but I've never failed to deliver! ----- I'm in it for the whole stack of books....
  21. The Royal Court of the Common (or Garden) Gnomes https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/the-royal-court-of-the-common-or-garden-gnomes/description
  22. About this project Our continued goal is to create the next-level of miniatures for your games and painting. More detailed, more dynamic, more characterful and better than before. We are pushing things forward. Because, as every painter or gamer knows - these are not toys; this is miniature art! It has been a while since nearly 1,000 kind gamers worldwide helped us bring to life TC: Fantasy Dungeon Terrain, back on KS, in 2014. Now we have returned, we are ready to raise the bar once again with a new range of models. With these, we have the scope to really show off how proper resin models should look. Welcome, adventurer, to the Minotaur Horde! A lot of companies focus on budget value, and that's good, if good value is what you want. More models for your money, buckets of models cast in PVC plastic, spin-cast 'restic' models. Cheaper production, corners cut. You get more mediocre models than you could ever paint or really appreciate. Familiar, right? I know ;) Now these Minos are a little bit different, these are the kind of high detail miniatures which will get a "Wow" from your gamer friends when you reveal them. Miniatures which you will want to paint and will want to keep in your collection forever. We are making miniatures with the best blend of new and old. New, cutting-edge 3D Printing for the sharpest details around. Old, tried and tested vacuum casting, the same method perfected over the last 30 years, for the best quality cast models. Our last KS received high praise on the model's quality and phenomenal detail. But this time we really have the scope to spare no expense and truly show off what we can do on these fearsome Minotaurs. Minotaurs are the perfect race to begin on our quest to modernize, since only a few of them are needed to make a warband. We can lavish attention on a dozen or so models and produce a concise campaign with a quick delivery. On one side, there is the production; over the years, Zealot has built a reputation for making stunningly detailed models. We have worked with many big-name miniature companies, producing their models, all behind the scenes. If you have supported many miniature kickstarters before, you likely have some of our casts already! But the awesome level of detail possible is all moot, without some stunningly detailed artwork for us to produce! ... So we have teamed up with Alexei Popovici, who is an industry sculpting veteran and one of the most talented model sculptors working today. He not only produces great sculpts which looks superb as a render on your huge PC screen - but it transfers well into an actual model, where all the details are clear and possible to paint. Superb renders indeed! Choose your miniatures from these core selections. If you wish to pick them as further Add-Ons, the cost is displayed on each image. (For the Adventurers, there are more views of castings coming soon)
  23. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/howardtayler/schlock-mercenary-books-14-and-15 About It is high time we put the next two Schlock Mercenary books into print, and into your hands. We love these books, and we're excited for you to have them. THE BOOKS Broken Wind: Schlock Mercenary Volume 14 "Think of it as a great, big can full of sky... You could drop Mars into that can, and then tuck Luna and Europa in on top." Cover art by Howard Tayler and Travis Walton. Design by Sandra Tayler, Howard Tayler, and K.B. Spangler. The Toughs have taken a small contract in a very, very big place. It's just the sort of mission Captain Tagon excels at, but his gunboat isn't answering to him, and his command chain includes the outed spy who stole the gunboat, the retired general who took it for a joyride, and the disgraced major from whom it was stolen in the first place. With air on both sides of the airlock it's tempting to start throwing people through it. They'll fall for days, provided nothing with wings decides they look tasty... This comprehensive print collection will be 176 pages long, perfect-bound in full color, with 9 pages of all-new story and over 30 pieces of margin art. Delegates and Delegation: Schlock Mercenary Volume 15 "I have standing orders to start exactly zero wars." Cover art by Howard Tayler and Travis Walton. Design by Sandra Tayler, Howard Tayler, and K.B. Spangler. Captain Alexia Murtaugh has a new ship, and a new contract to provide embassy security. Sergeant Schlock has a new title, and a shiny new "get out of jail free" card. Lieutenant Haley Sorlie has new friends, new implants for spying on them, and a newfound distaste for the politics of diplomacy. As Earth orbits its way into a new century her people have new allies, new enemies, and that old, familiar panic one gets upon discovering that there really is something new under the sun. This print collection will be 160 pages long, perfect-bound in full color, with 9 pages all new story, and over 30 pieces of margin art. WHY WE USE KICKSTARTER For years we handled our print runs by taking pre-orders in our online store. Last year we changed that, using Kickstarter for the pre-orders of Random Access Memorabilia: Schlock Mercenary Book 13. We were very pleased with the way it worked out. We like Kickstarter's system for communication between us and you, our backers. Kickstarter delivers a great pre-order experience for backers, and with Backerkit we get very robust fulfillment tools, making the job of shipping thousands of books much easier on us than it's been in the past. Kickstarting this print run lets us offer you more than we've been able to offer in the past. When we say "offer more," we don't mean "more pages." The books are finished, and we're all better served if we don't mess around with that part. We'll be offering additional merchandise, both physical and digital, that we wouldn't otherwise be able to produce. You'll find those in the Stretch Goals. STRETCH GOALS $60,000 Desktop Backgrounds All backers at 1 book pdf level and above will get desktop backgrounds featuring the cover art for Broken Wind and Delegates & Delegation. (Howard has finished a few of them already, and is trying them out.) Howard's over-the-drawing-table monitor, now with 100% more BROKEN WIND $70,000 Fleet coins Three new ship coins, one each for Broken Wind, Neosynchronicity, and Cindercone. The coins will be available to purchase as add-ons for $10 each. We've cleared this goal, so we'll have some art to show you next week. $80,000 Maxim 70 Key chain Maxim 70 reads: "Failure isn't an option. It's mandatory. The option is whether or not to let failure be the last thing you do" Our M70 coin has been one of our most popular challenge coins. This time we want to reprint it as a key chain, so that you can more easily keep it close. The key chain will be available as an add-on for $10. $90,000 The Reprints Teraport Wars is almost out of stock, this is a problem for making up book sets, we'd like to do a second printing. Howard Tayler short story PDF. Howard has written some prose short stories that were sold to various anthologies. The rights have now reverted to us and we'd like to make these stories available to backers. There will be at least two stories, one previously printed in Shared Nightmares, the other in Shadows Beneath. This pdf will be given to all backers at 1 book PDF level and above. Expected delivery January 2019.
  24. Hello everyone we are venturing into the Kickstarter realm again with a fully digital to cast project. Warning this one is on the artistic nude side, so be careful if at work or sensitive area... "In the desert realm of Tharaa, summer’s heat lies as heavily upon the lavish court of the Sultana as it does upon the simple shops and homes of her subjects. Yet they are the ones who rejoice with the cool evening zephyrs that race refreshingly through their markets stalls, tents, and villas; breezes that never seem to reach the perfumed halls of the Sultana’s court. On those stifling, windless, near endless days; comfort, pleasure, and even mere distraction elude the powerful ruler. Her great wealth, her many servants, and her countless possessions seem more burden than blessing. On those days when clothing itself seems a pointless effort, the beauty and power of the human form acts as reminder that modesty can be a needless vanity..." https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/497254986/court-of-the-sultana-by-effincool-miniatures?ref=5vt7of
