  1. Now Live, a kickstarter for a Set of 10 Female Amazons(Queen, Mage, Shaman, Ranger, Bowwomen, Slinger, 4 Warriors) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tombguardians/28-mm-fantasy-female-amazons Tomb Guardians use many of the same sculptors as Reaper so some of the sculpting styles might seem familiar. Pictured below is a render of the mage.
  2. Dwarven Forge is doing a smaller kickstarter in June. It's a pseudo sequel to their Caverns Deep line (which was their 6th kickstarter, aka KS6), KS6.66 - Hellscape. This is different than their 7th Kickstarter - Wildlands which will be outdoor themed (trees and such) in Jan 2020. Many of you have been asking for smaller Kickstarters that are more digestible. So we're going to try it! We are going to launch a small, two-week KS with a limited scope. Best of all, it's happening very soon -- KS6.66 - Hellscape will launch in late June 2019! As the name implies, the lava-based project will focus on the fiery wasteland the fiends of the Nine Hells inhabit. The collection will consist of a small number of new sculpts as well as some repaints of some Caverns Deep pieces. EDIT: It start on June 16th (Father's Day in the US)
  3. A kingdom of terror and blood ruled by vampires... A sprawling empire of ghouls... What horrors await you deep in the underworld? The 5th Edition EMPIRE OF THE GHOULS is the next major Kickstarter campaign from Kobold Press! Be sure to sign up to get alerts! https://koboldpress.com/kickstarters/
  4. Zombies in various historical uniforms (No British uniforms of course, we're always the goodies) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/687110463/dead-through-time-28mm-undead-zombie-historical-mi?ref=discovery&term=zombie historical
  5. This is a small campaign that features a set of Michael Anderson Models. Only one honest pledge level, that's it. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/the-adventures-of-siegfried Thanks for having a look :--)
  6. “The Curse of Hollow Hills” is a miniature project of fantasy heroes & undead monsters for role playing and board game enthusiasts, painters and collectors. If funded, it will include a collection of more than 35 original sculpts (including future stretch goals), inspired by the most iconic undead creatures of fantasy novels, RPGs & tabletop boardgames. www.facebook.com/CrippledGodFoundry/posts/2062784023819601
  7. EDIT: The kickstarter is now LIVE: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/monsterfightclub/monster-terrain/description This is a company set up by some of the guys from Gale Force 9. They posted on FB saying a little over a week after Adepticon (mid-April), these trees are hitting kickstarter, and they can come painted... The sign in one pic says $30 for the trees, with 3 trees in front of the sign. If they are indeed $10 per tree painted, I will be in it three figures...
  8. Facebookey page Yup, I'm backing!
  9. Townspeople with a Warhammer Fantasy RPG feel to them: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kinggames/dunkeldorf-28mm-fantasy-rpg-townsfolk-miniatures?ref=discovery&term=dunkeldorf&fbclid=IwAR1oSTtbIK7ddIrJZH3vP7UnNyznFy67WShZO48Wn5ZnVoAWy6iSKxQ9LvQ About Dunkeldorf Miniatures - 28mm Townsfolk Miniatures Welcome to Dunkeldorf! A dark and grim fantasy town filled with sinister characters, but also a few good-hearted ones too! Our kickstarter focuses on these characterful townsfolk that will fit right into any fantasy RPG or tabletop setting, either as heroes, player characters or NPCs! Meet the Dunkeldorf Townsfolk Each of the Dunkeldorfians have their own background story along with detailed artwork. Below you can see artwork of the 12 townsfolk included in the full set of miniatures!
  10. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1209005612/trailblazer-game-stamps?ref=discovery_category_newest About Game Stamps are a map-making tool for role-playing games, which can be used right at the table as you play. The Trailblazer stamps depict iconic terrain such as mountains, forests, or seas. Whether you're preparing for a campaign or mapping the adventure as it unfolds, the stamps let you create attractive paper and ink maps in a fraction of the time it would take to draw them. All of the artwork is compatible with 1" hexes and grids, making the stamps ideal for open-world games. Stamp each hex as the players explore it, or pass the stamps around the table and create a shared world. No matter how many people contribute to it or how many sessions it takes to explore it, the map will be detailed and consistent. Game Stamps are made of natural gum rubber, deeply etched to produce a high quality image. The rubber is precisely trimmed to avoid artifacts, and cushioned with thick foam to distribute pressure evenly, improving the quality of the impression. The hardwood mounts have an hourglass profile, making them easy to grip. Each set comes in a cushioned chipboard box and includes an archival-quality ink pad. A wonderful addition to the toolkit of any game group with a penchant for exploration. Whether you're creating a world ahead of time or improvising a hexcrawl on the spot, Brendan Day's Game Stamps will help you create a handcrafted map with speed and clarity. ~ Jason Lutes, author of The Perilous Wilds and Berlin. Game Stamps are a great idea executed well. They're a welcome addition to my gaming library. I can't wait to see more! ~ Tony Dowler, author of How to Host a Dungeon. Whether we use high quality pens and papers, or just scribble on the nearest scrap of paper, map making is one of the many hobbies within a hobby, that are part of being a gamer. When it comes to maps for fantasy games, there is an artistic quality to homemade one of a kind maps, that cannot be equaled. Game Stamps really do have that handmade look and feel. ~ Griffith Morgan, Co-Director of Secrets of Blackmoor: The True History of Dungeons and Dragons. The Trailblazer stamps depict the following terrain: Mountains Hills Grassland Swamp Forest (Deciduous) Forest (Conifer) Sea Desert Tower Village Castle or Walled City Megalith or Dungeon Entrance If you back at the Wanderer or Explorer level, you will receive a starter set containing 6 or 9 stamps. The Wanderer level lets you choose either the Deciduous or Conifer forest, whereas the Explorer level includes both of the forest designs. If you back at the Adventurer, Wayfinder, or Cartographer level, you will receive all of the designs. The Wayfinder and Cartographer levels include 3 additional stamps, which depict individual trees. 1/2" Tree (Deciduous) 1/2" Tree (Conifer) 1/2" Tree (Leafless) You can use these smaller stamps to create mixed terrain such as forested hills, or to add variety to large sections of woodland. All sets include a jet black archival-quality ink pad, but if you back at the Cartographer level, you will receive three additional ink pads in colors of your choice. I recommend Cobalt Blue and Vermillion Red, but other colors are available.
  11. Purple Pirate Games presents:Secrets of the World Harvesters - Live as of 3/5/2019 - DCC compatible https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/purplepirategames/secrets-of-the-world-harvesters?ref=nav_search&result=project&term=secrets of the world This adventure and setting guide is complete and ready to print.
  12. Looking for Asian themed 3d printable buildings and terrain. http://kck.st/2EnIXlN War rages across the borders of the Empire, and creatures of legend descend from the hills and mountains to prey upon helpless villages and even the better-defended walled towns of these regions. Most deadly of them all is the Hobgoblin King, ruler of a vast city populated by his hobgoblin legions and their oni allies, along with flocks of quarrelsome tengu and even humans who traffic with such evil beings. The adventure sets offered in this Kickstarter range from defending a small village or attacking an outpost of hobgoblin soldiers, to adventuring in a human city based loosely on Northeastern Asia, to an all-out war in the Hobgoblin King's own city! The pieces are designed for 28mm D&D or other fantasy RPG gaming, but can be scaled to 15mm for wargames using smaller scale. These .stl files allow you to print two entire cities with dramatically different architecture reflecting their inhabitants, along with sinister bamboo forests to fill with monsters, treasures, and puzzles! Whether you're fighting hobgoblin raiders, conniving with thieves, plotting against the Emperor, or working to thwart the plans of the Hobgoblin King, this Kickstarter can give your players a visual spectacle they'll be talking about for years. Well-known 3D sculptor Iain Lovecraft is teaming up with ENNIE award-winning author Matt Finch and Zach Glazar of Frog God Games to bring you buildings and terrain designed to provide what gamers need with tabletop terrain - places to hide, places to put figures, things to climb, and all the little details that can sometimes get left out of the sculpting process. Including the ever-present dangers of "fat fingers," being able to see the minis over the terrain, and cat attacks on the table setup. All of these files print without the need for slicer supports.
  13. About The Origins of the Lost Lands For almost 20 years, glimpses into the world of the Lost Lands have been revealed in the publications of Frog God Games and Necromancer Games. The Lost Lands contain locations now legendary in the annals of roleplaying, from the depths of the massive dungeons of Rappan Athuk, to the city of Bard’s Gate, the Desolation of Tsar, the Blight, the demon-tainted Sundered Lands, the chaotic tumult of the Borderland Provinces, and the fabled Northlands. These publications offered hints of the sweeping scope, deep history, and epic grandeur of the Lost Lands. But only hints. For well over a decade, a Lost Lands campaign world has been our customers' most requested project... ...and the time of the Lost Lands has now arrived! The Primary Reward Over 42 years in the making, this is the definitive guide to the world of the Lost Lands! This massive volume includes the history of the Lost Lands, a wealth of detailed maps, cultural information about its nations and peoples, and a huge gazetteer containing descriptions of the world's countries, cities, waterways and geography. For the first time, readers can explore the length and breadth of the great continent of Akados, including regions never before described, and far Libynos, home of the Desert Kingdoms and many ancient cultures alien to the folk of Akados. The book weighs in at approximately 700 pages in full color, with maps by award-winning cartographers and beautiful, original artwork to place you directly into the world itself in all its glory and terror. Entirely system-neutral, the guide can be used with any game system you choose. The Lost Lands are the setting for a tremendous array of over 150 individual adventures and sourcebooks already published by Frog God Games and Necromancer Games, many providing statistics in multiple game systems. All of this material is available to provide an almost inexhaustible resource of ready-made adventures and epic quests! Future Frog God Games products set in the Lost Lands will be built into the ever-growing canon finally revealed in this volume. About 4000 example pages of Lost Lands Adventures Pictured Above A small sample of some of these already-existing adventures include Rappan Athuk, Sword of Air, Slumbering Tsar, Bard's Gate, Necropolis, Cyclopean Deeps, The Borderland Provinces, The Blight, and Cults of the Sundered Kingdoms. Authors of adventures which have, over two decades, explored the Lost Lands include Clark Peterson, Ed Greenwood, Bill Webb, Gary Gygax, Matt Finch, Jim Ward, Morten Braten, Jeff Harkness, John Stater, Bill Kenower, Nate Paul, Dennis Sustare, and Alex Kammer. The authors of the guide to the Lost Lands include Bill Webb, Greg Vaughan, Matt Finch, Vicki Potter, Pat Lawinger, Anthony Pryor, Rhiannon Louve, Mark Greenberg, Ken Spencer, Casey Christofferson, and Thom Wilson. Shipping International shipping on a book this size may be quite expensive. If you are a non-US customer, please read the shipping information below. We anticipate shipping to be $80 to $100 for most countries, and could even be more. Shipping for the tapestries (and only the tapestries) is calculated into their price for Canada, the UK, the EU, and Australia. The Lost Lands
  14. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/splinteredlightminis/28mm-lesser-goblin-horde?ref=discovery_category_newest Splintered Light Miniatures is pleased to announce our 28mm Lesser Goblin Horde Kickstarter will begin Monday, February 18 at 6:00 PM and will run 14 days. These were sculpted by Bob Olley and stand 15-16mm tall. We will be offering an Early Bird gift for anyone who signs up in the first 24 hours at various pledge levels. These Lesser Goblins will likely be recognizable to many as having been available on the Splintered Light Miniatures website before. Originally, they were intended for 15mm but due to their bulk, I think they really work best with 28mm figures. The money from the Kickstarter is intended to retool some of the molds to better fit 28mm packs and perhaps some new Hedgerows and Heroes armies. We will also have a variety of Add-ons, including cavalry packs, a were-creature pack, and some Hill Trolls. Finally, we will be offering some sculpts as stretch goals that have never been officially released to the public. You can see more pictures at << commerce link removed>>

  16. I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/9thlevel/kobolds-ate-my-baby-20th-anniversary-zine-quest

  20. "We’re planning to have four Crates on the Kickstarter, including Gothic Estate, Modern Life, Occupied Town and Abandoned Village (all names TBC). Across these four Crates, we’re going to cover a load of different periods, settings and uses. What’s more, if you want to pick up four Crates (and who wouldn’t) there will be a great all-in deal during the Kickstarter." The announcement on January 5th didn't have the start date of the KS, only that it would be "soon". Do take a look at the previous Reaper thread about the quality of the plastic. I think it's fine for tabletop and there look to be plenty of pieces that haven't been mass-produced in plastic. However, if you want highly-detailed furniture pieces, I would recommend Tiny Furniture's resin line. Mantic Blog : https://manticblog.com/2019/01/05/12-days-of-christmas-terraincrate/

  23. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cosmo-communicator/x/10803452#/ BACKERS 1,371 Quick Facts Cosmo Communicator is a pocketable clamshell smartphone with a physical backlit keyboard Device features dual colour touchscreen displays and a 24MP camera External 2" touchscreen when device is closed and large 6" touchscreen when device is open - ample space to create on the move. Cosmo runs Android 9 (Pie) and also supports Linux OS, such as Sailfish OS and Debian, with a multi-boot option Built to be the only device you need to carry, and small enough to fit in your pocket, it’s a true all-in-one replacement for both your mobile phone and your laptop. Media Coverage Slashgear "This is just the latest and greatest of the machines the company’s made to fill the gaps between smartphone and laptop“ ZD NET "Tiny Android, Linux laptop: Cosmo Communicator is also dual-screen phone” The Verge “tiny Android laptop …doubles as a phone” The Register "Planet brought the clamshell QWERTY back to the market 17 years after Psion made its last PDA” Engadget “intended to serve as a phone, not just a pocketable productivity machine” Liliputing “… use as a smartphone replacement rather than a smartphone companion” Engadget Japan “レトロフューチャーなデザインに最新機能山盛りのGemini PDA後継機” The Planet Story continues... At Planet Computers innovation is at the heart of our company. Earlier this year, we successfully delivered our Gemini PDA product to more than 7000 Indiegogo backers who supported our mission to kick start a new mobile computing revolution. Now, we are ready to push our vision even further and you can be part of it. In the process of developing our new device we asked our Indiegogo backers, users and followers what features they wanted to have. We are excited to announce that we are extending the range of Planet devices with the Cosmo Communicator, our new flagship device. The Cosmo Communicator is a modern dual-screen clamshell-based mobile communicator with an integrated keyboard. It is built to be a great pocket computer, a superb mobile phone and an excellent high resolution camera. The Cosmo features dual colour displays: it features an external colour touchscreen display for easy phone call control and notifications. Tucked away inside the beautiful and sleek award winning clamshell design is an ultra-wide 6” colour touchscreen display providing ample space to create on the move with a fully functioning keyboard integrated into the device. When open, the innovative clamshell also acts as a support of the device, allowing you to type comfortably. Cosmo’s newly designed backlit keyboard, allows you to comfortably work at night or in dark spaces such as on long plane journeys without the need of external lighting. Disclaimer; I own the Gemini, their previous communicator. Yes, the keyboard works and you can write on it at a decent speed. Unfortunately, on the Gemini, Libreoffice on Debian really lags... like my painting... (Yeah, struggling to catch up.) They're promising a faster CPU with more cores on the Cosmo, but so far I don't know how much faster. MUltiboot OS is possible (I have Debian as default, Android as second and Sailfish as the third on my Gemini), but currently it requires a fiddly process where you download OS images, erase the internal storage on the device, then use a PC SW package to flash it with the images. And multibooted devices don't support the usual Android update system. (I expect the process will be improved later) I'm currently undecided and have about a week left to decide...
  24. A little more than 48 hours left for this one, I think it looks really cool. http://kck.st/2z0HjUk Kamigakari: God Hunters is a tabletop role-playing game set in modern-day Japan that combines centuries of Japanese mythology with a modern-day setting and urban fantasy action. You play as a God Hunter, a being wielding supernatural strength, magical abilities, and reality-warping spiritual powers. Your mission is to protect an unsuspecting populace from evil beings known as Aramitama, and to prevent the supernatural from leaking into the public eye. Originally, the game was released in Japan by Arclight Games on November 2013 as Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari, to great popularity. In January 2017, a text-only fan translation appeared on the internet, exposing Kamigakari to the attention of English-speaking RPG fans world wide, and creating a thriving fanbase that continues to grow to this day! Serpent Sea Games is a team of experienced RPG translation and development professionals, including the creator of the fan translation, who have licensed Kamigakari from the creators at Arclight Games for publication in English and want to bring the game officially to Western audiences. But we need your help to bring this book into existence! The Game The world of Kamigakari features a distinctly seinen action anime and style to it. With crazy abilities and flashy powers, it's an over-the-top world where you can battle kaijus, giant robots, gods and demons all under the same umbrella. The system is designed to keep interactions as simple and intuitive as possible, for an easy pick-up-and-play. Kamigakari splits its play up into "scenes", which are short, episodic and will often split the focus onto individual players. It's a different experience compared to western systems that often assume the party is always together, which allows for more varied and engaging character focus and development. So what is a God Hunter? A God Hunter is a person who, through one means or another, has gained supernatural powers by possessing a shard of a legendary weapon, relic, suit of armor, or maybe even the crystallized soul of a legendary hero. These powers can be anything from a master of the sword or magic, transforming hero, a living avatar of flame, or the ultimate hacker. Instead of a familiar class-based system, Kamigakari uses its own character generation called Styles, which lets you mix and match your power sets to create a gun-slinging samurai, a chainsaw-wielding magical girl, a hacker who codes his magic into existence, or a hunter who stalks his victims through the shadows. And it's not just limited to your class: weapons and gear are utilized under the Arms system, a mechanic where a base weapon is upgraded over time by using materials or spending gold. Two basic swords, in the hands of two different god hunters, can end up very different weapons after extensive modification! An average God Hunter on a normal day. Does being a God Hunter mean that you hunt gods? Of course it does! With concepts rooted in Shintoism and traditional Japanese folklore, a God Hunter is tasked with tracking down dangerous beings known as Aramitama - a dark god that is born and grows in power by devouring the souls of its victims. Aramitama come in many forms - from recognizable Japanese icons like oni and tengu, mythical beings like the Pegasus or Griffin, to eldritch monstrosities made of gnashing teeth and glowing orbs. Upon defeating an Aramitama, God Hunters can use their remains to create stronger Regalia - magical weapons and equipment, in order to face even even more powerful Aramitama. It's not just a fun gameplay loop, either: These creatures threaten the sanctity of innocents and the world in their lust to reach their ultimate form, the Avatar of Ruin, a true god of destruction capable of ending the world. It's up to the God Hunters to prevent that! An Aramitama awakens. Kamigakari utilizes the unique Numen Dice pool. Numen Dice are resource wherein you roll a set of dice and use it to pay for abilities or change the outcome of a roll. There's many ways change, swap and spend dice. Players must be careful how they manage their Numen Pool to both survive the battle and save the perfect set of Numen Dice to activate their ultimate abilities! We'd like to support this game far into the future, and plan on translating and releasing supplements if financially viable. Arclight Games has also requested the creation of original content exclusive to the western release, but that can probably wait until we have a few expansion books finished, we're only mentioning it now in the interests of full transparency.
  25. *Edit* This is live now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1162110258/reichbusters-projekt-vril Mythic Games has a new ks launching Nov 20. They released an impressive looking video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DT5ffQw_twk Looking on their web page for the project I found a few pictures: It is a 1-4 player cooperative game with a stealth component.
