    Warbands of the Dark Beyond

    Tre manor is at it again... Another well-designed warband. Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1103158358/warbands-of-the-dark-beyond/description
  2. "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/

    Confrontation: Classic

    <<<MOD Edit>>> Link to the kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/996665814/confrontation-classic-the-legendary-skirmish-game/description Some info on the Dakka forums, including "backward compatibility" and "skirmish, and only skirmish" : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/150/717182.page Anyone have any info about the company? How able do you think they can pull off a KS? They've at least been in business for a long time?

    28mm Hard Plastic Fauns

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rgdgaming/help-us-make-28mm-hard-plastic-fauns-for-your-tabl/description Quite a long time ago, this project was on KS for the first time. The creator had a lot to learn about material, options on sprues, poses etc ... so the first KS lost momentum. He sure took his time and now he's back and it looks to me (at first glance) that he definitely did his homework. It might me a niche "army", but I'm definitely interested in a pack of those fauns. If some of the stretch goals get unlocked, there is some awesome stuff coming.
  8. 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.

    Atlantis Wood Elves 5/22

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/atlantisminiatures/atlantis-miniatures-28mm-wood-elves?ref=discovery_category_newest About Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on. I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns." Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement! Shipping Date: APRIL 2020 If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

The miniature will be available as an add-on after that and does not have any effect on the gameplay. Cliquez ici pour une version française de cette page.

Players will use their Assassin's skills, equipment and their own sense of tactics to complete various objectives while evading detection from the Guards. The campaign will pit you against Templars, let you explore unknown events of the Brotherhood in Venice, and determine the fate of the Brotherhood in the famous City of Masks. Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a Triton Noir game under license by Ubisoft Entertainment. First time on Kickstarter ? Click here to see how it works. The game will be available in English or French. You will be able to choose your language in the pledge manager (after the Kickstarter campaign).

  12. The Kickstarter is now Live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/badsquiddogames/amazons-and-dwarves-quality-28mm-female-miniatures - I backed one of Annie’s previous kickstarters, the one with all the forest animals including beavers and moose and bears (oh my). I also bought several of her female minis and the sculpts are quite nice and the castings were great quality. Very sharp and clean. I’m very happy with what I’ve ordered and if finances allowed I would back again.
  13. Exquis. A range of modern day women with five busts planned in total and one of them potentially entirelly for free! The Kickstarter should start towards the end of May after we have shipped out all the Dragon Masters packages. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/859512613/exquis

    Black Rose Wars

    Hello guys! I am here to show you the new KS from Ludus Magnus Studio coming this spring! Black Rose Wars is a board game that will guide you into the world of Nova Aetas.The Black Rose lodge meets to determine who will be the new Magister, the keeper of forgotten magic. The most powerful mages affiliated with the lodge will confront each other in a series of epic and captivating battles, exploiting the arcane powers in their possession. The event, which determines the destiny of the lodge every ten years, will be hosted in the rooms of the Black Rose manor. In Black Rose Wars, each player uses magic to collect Power Points by killing the other mages, destroying the rooms of the lodge, making them unstable or completing personal missions. At the start of the game, each mage begins with spell cards selected from a school of choice. Each of the Black Rose Wars schools contains different and unique spells, which leads to different victory strategies. Each school, like Divination and Trasmutation, have different type of spells which gives the mage different strategies to become the most powerful mage. For more information you can visit: https://www.facebook.com/groups/blackrosewarsunofficial/ Or you can ask here and I will do my best for answer!

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1084608523/raid-on-the-temple-of-serpents/description About Welcome to the most thrilling raid in the miniature history! Choose your side, fight until the end and get greatly rewarded for your engagement! This campaign features 2 lines of miniatures! "Temple of Serpent" is a brand new collection inspired by the lost civilizations of Amazonia and Mesoamerica. It envisions an utopian enclave hidden so deep in the wilderness that it is considered forbidden territory. The tribe is focused on preserving an ancient magic with the help of gods and dinosaurs. Be the first to explore it! "Bloodsail Island" is an established line of ruthless ogre pirates. Upon discovering the Temple of Serpent they have became overpowered by the desire to plunder its treasures. They are going to need every hand on deck for this one, so the line is getting a massive extension! Our products are in 28mm scale and come with square bases. Check pictures at the bottom of our campaign to see the size comparisons. All miniatures are made from high-quality resin that ensures highest details, durability and flexibility. Based on our Kickstarter experience and community feedback we have came up with the simplest Reward System to date. You can choose one of the following pledges. Deckhand Pledge is for you if you are not sure what you need but you want to be a part of the campaing. It will give you the access to the Pledge Manager where you will be able to spend your additional funds on any miniatures you want. Basic Pledge is for you if you do not want to pick a side. It is really simple. You plede $99 and you receive $99 to spend on addons. But on top of that you will choose and receive either a set of Serpent Freebies OR Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with those freebies packs. In Captain Pledge you become the commander of ogre pirate army! Pledge $199 to get Captain Krabor in special offer for $40. The rest of your funds ($159) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive a set of Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs. In Serpent Pledge you become the deity of the Temple! Pledge $199 to get High Priestess on Pterossus in a special offer for $50. The rest of your funds ($149) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive a set of Serpent Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs. After the campaign ends, we will open a Pledge Manager. You will receive an e-mail address with a link to it. When you log in, you will be able to pick your rewards and spend your funds on any chosen add-ons from the campaign. You will also be able to transfer additional funds via PayPal. After finishing an order a shipping cost will be charged, based on your address and the package weight. All additional funds you pledge over your reward price you will be able to spend on add-ons. When our Campaign is live we will post a link to an online calculator that will help you in figuring out how much you need to pledge to get all the miniatures you want. Example 1: You want just 3 units of Raptor Riders that are $39 each. In order to get them you need to choose Basic Pledge and pledge $117 (3x $39) for it. This will allow you to spend that $117 in Pledge Manager and choose 3x Raptor Riders. On top of that you will be able to choose a set of freebies (either Serpent of Ogre one). Example 2: You want Captain Krabor, 3 units of Sharkman that are $39 each and 5 units of goblins that are $12 each. In order to get those you should choose Captain Pledge and pledge $217 for it. In this pledge Captain Krabor is in a better price and you will also get $159 for other addons. You need 3x $39 + 5x $12 = $177 so you need to pledge $18 on top of the pledge price to cover everything. In case of any mistakes, there will be no problem with make a correction. You will always be able to add funds in the Pledge Manager via PayPal, so if you do not pledge enough through Kickstarter, you will still be able to get everything you need after the campaign ends.

  18. Hi all, Andrew May launched the second season of Black Crab Miniatures. I backed the first season, and was pretty happy with it. They’re resin minis with very creepy looks, I thought you guys might be interested. :) The campaign is very short, there’s already less than 24 hours to back it.

    Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2087444096/stonehaven-dwarves-vol-2/description About "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever." -J. R. R. Tolkien Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties: From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies. From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves. Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals: At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on. At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on. As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

    Trailblazer Game Stamps

    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.

  22. EDIT: This kickstarter is now Live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-invader "Humans came to PK-L7 in search of high powered fuel. They found it with Xenium, a dark, oily compound deep below the planet’s surface. But they found something else too. The Xenos attack was brutal and unrelenting, and they’re still coming. On April 10 at 3pm EST, Zombicide: Invader is coming to Kickstarter. Follow the CMON and Guillotine Games Facebook pages for regular updates on the Survivors, Xenos, Equipment, and Environments of this interstellar battle for life, and look for our interview with the Zombicide: Invader design team later this week. Grab a weapon, barricade the doors, and prepare to be invaded." Zombicide:Invader is a cooperative game where 1 to 6 players face Xenos, an unfathomable swarm of infected Xenos controlled by the game itself. Each player takes on the role of 1 to 6 Survivors in a sci-fi setting being overwhelmed by these Xenos. The goal is simple: choose a Mission, complete its objectives, kill as many Xenos as possible, and (most importantly) survive! Survivors will fight Xenos, rescue each other, recover vital data, unveil dark secrets, and much more! Survivors can be Civilians or Soldiers, each with specialized Skills. They all play together as a team, trading Equipment, and covering each other. They use whatever weapons they can get to kill Xenos and slow the invasion. The better the weapon, the higher the body count, but the more Xenos will appear, attracted by the onslaught! Survivors must also be mindful of their location as conventional weapons work fine indoors, but the planet’s oxygen-starved surface, they’ll need to arm themselves with more specialized weaponry… Lasers, anyone? Most of the time, Xenos are predictable, but there are a lot of them and they use nasty tactics not encountered in previous Zombicidegames. Only through cooperation can players achieve the Mission objectives and win." - I haven't backed a CMoN kickstarter in a awhile, but I think this one might tempt me depending on what the minis and gameplay are like.
  23. Have to say I’m quite liking some of these halflings: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/halflings-and-fantasy-friends?ref=project_build# Just a few pics of some of the minis and concepts. A lot more are on the kickstarter site. Curiously, no women folk though.

    Cosmo Communicator

    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...
