  1. I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.) More discussion on Dakka : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/792719.page#11049486

  3. We're super excited to announce our second kickstarter campaign... MIMIC MANIA Focusing on Mimics, from the obvious to not so obvious. They're perfect for DMs to scatter in their dungeons and surprise unsuspecting groups.. The campaign launches tomorrow... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/vinegarfog/mimic-mania
  4. In November, I am launching a Kickstarter project for a new tabletop RPG product. The Gaming Stage is an alternative to the dedicated board game tables that have become so popular, but can be so hard to justify. These are units that can be pulled out to play and put away when done, or displayed proudly with the wall hanging kit. There are three standard versions. The first is the most portable, with a dry-erase printed playing surface. The second two have hinged lids to allow hand drawn maps to be inserted under an acrylic playing surface. All three have highly distressed wood, and forged steel hardware for an impressive fantasy-themed appearance. Multiple add-ons will be available to increase the versatility. I'm a couple of days from the Kickstarter pre-launch page from going up. In the meantime, I have a project dedicated webpage with all of the features clearly sown. Check it out and let me know what you think. http://crafted-concepts.com -Mike Catanzaro
  5. Heard about this on Trapped Under Plastic. Some of the sculpts look pretty interesting and look large scale so I will be curious to see what they cost. Launches Friday Oct 23.
  6. Click on the Notify Me in the KS preview page for a KS discount. The $185 / $205 six-set (two of each of the 3 map sets, with and without vinyl stickers) is the best price. Dungeon set, Frozen Waste set, and miscellaneous. I guess the ideal backer would be someone who has no 2D maps or 3D game tiles, plays RPG and Frostgrave, and has $200 to burn on maps. Each dry-erase map set is 20 17"x22" maps, double-sided and removable. Removable means portable. Yes you're gonna need a bigger table. I already have his original Book of Battle Mats, as well as Loke Battle Mat books and 3D dungeon tiles, so I'll pass on this one. I liked the maps and stickers, although a few thought the art was cartoony or something. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/atlasmundi/130219410?ref=9n5vvd&token=6d7a5de9&utm_campaign=GIB1603062156.ckn&utm_source=greeninbox.com&utm_medium=referral
  7. Hi everyone!,Now you can take a look the next kickstarter campaign that we are working in. We have widened choices including a dwarf unit and all Dwarf Lords of the Depths as stretchgoals unlocked.Dont forget put your mail and click "Notify me" to keep an eye out about campaign progress and dont miss important offers.Thank you!!Preview. Work in progress <removed commerce link>I show you the drummer of unit.
  8. Got a email regarding these. KS will launch sometime next month but these are the same people that did the Animal Companions stl KS. Since currently the way our FLGS has the game play area, I really don't need minis for the players as I have to move em on the map + the players need visible tokens as well use a webcam & projector for people that aren't sitting near the map (social distancing rules apply). Last year I picked up a bunch of dry erase 1 inch tokens & I'll just put the player's first initial on them in different colors. It's not the ideal way, but it works. These would at least give the players a sense of "hey I have a character". I'll probably back this one. Hoping thou it's a stl campaign, cause well I have printers & can do it.
  9. I've got a new project in the works, the third wave of the A Dozen . . . series PDFs that I'm creating thanks to support on Kickstarter. So far, 30 PDFs (across two different waves) have been created; that's 360 pages of gaming content. The new project isn't ready to launch, but the preview page is all set to go. Just click the "notify me" button on the page to receive an email when the new campaign goes live. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/philipreed/a-dozen-frightening-rumors-for-use-with-fantasy-rpgs
  10. from the creator that brought you https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/brassmonkeygames/ian-millers-grim-tarock/description And now for something completely different. I have just launched the Facebook page for our latest collaborative effort - Ian Miller's Middgyr: Tower of Chaos! So what's this all about, I hear you ask? Here is a quick summary: A cold wind moans, its sighing a thousand alien voices breathing in your mind – meaningless, tenebrous. Yet promising everything. You look up at the great gates before you and at the impossible tower above. The gates are open. You take a step forward… Middgyr: Tower of Chaos is a co-operative dungeon crawl board game for 2-5 players set in a world plagued by war and the increasing influence of Chaos. Players fight for their lives as they explore the mysterious Tower of Chaos, high above the swamps of Middgyr, united in their quest to end the war, yet each with their own veiled agendas. Players take charge of four grim anti-heroes as they set out upon a vital quest that will take them through the twisted forests, crumbling bergs and foggy meres that crawl, slither and gibber from Ian Miller’s wonderfully dark imagination. One player takes control of the unknowable Tower of Chaos and its many devious denizens, acting as Game Master. The labyrinthine Tower of Chaos will offer an immersive gaming experience, fast-paced and intense combat, and many challenging puzzles for the players to overcome. Middgyr aims to deliver an experience that will capture the very essence of Ian Miller’s legendary artwork with an expansive, story-driven campaign mode containing many twists and turns, as well as a number of different outcomes. Make the right choices and untold power, fame and fortune awaits – make one wrong decision and oblivion is your only reward... If you are on Facebook, you can join the fun here [link to commercial site removed, if your on facebook just search for Middgyr and you should find the group] If not, watch this space as I will be creating the mailing list soon. Cheers everyone and stay safe! James

  13. Did you know you can click on the 'Kobold Kickstarters' graphic right on the Kobold Press web site's home page? It's a GREAT way to find out if there's a new Kickstarter coming soon .... just sayin' Mod: commerce link removed
  14. Saw some sculpts for this upcoming miniatures kickstarter and thought some folks here would be interested. Kickstarter is expected to start in September. Will Post more details and a link to the kickstarter once it goes live. In the meantime here’s some pics of the minis. This is the same sculptor who did the Narthoks the Excellent kickstarter amongst others including the Highland cattle Minotaurs and a bunch of animal minis. Ive backed his previous kickstarter and also ordered a variety of his other minis and have been pleased with all I’ve received.
  15. Not quite sure why I keep looking at boardgame Kickstarters, but I stumbled across this one that starts on 24th June. It's for a reprint of the base game from their previous Kickstarter:- And a pair of Expansions:- Looks very JRPG influenced, which is what has me interested. They've got a draft page up at the mo, with more info, playthrough videos and stuff:- https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/succubuspublishing/772262949?ref=854027&token=fd1cf2b1
  16. Apparently Stéphane Simon -- a notable contributor to Rackham Confrontation and Mierce -- will be having a Kickstarter (presumably soon, but no date provided). "Hi Guys, I decided to develop my SIMONMINIATURES range with crowdfunding for the production of several pieces (resin). BELIUS LE NOIR, a chaotic giant will be the major piece of this KS, it will be accompanied by other pieces, a small band of Barbarians to fight it. I will give you a specific date soon, if you are a fan of my work, share and participate!" Since there is no project yet, I cannot link to it, and I believe that board rules prevent me from linking to his "website" (on blogspot). Anyway, his blog doesn't seem to mention this; I found out only by direct e-mail. He also has a presence on Facebook, but since I don't, I don't really know what information might be available there.
  17. Not much info out there yet, but Bob has started to put up concept work for upcoming mins.

  20. Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War A miniatures game featuring exciting boarding actions in the universe of the Traveller RPG, with Imperial Marines battling Zhodani. Campaign FAQ Updates 0 Comments 12 Community Back this project Saved About Greetings fellow Travellers, and welcome to the Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War Kickstarter project! This is a project we have been wanting to do for Traveller for a long time now, and we need your help to bring it to light... Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War is a brand new miniatures game depicting vicious shipboard clashes between Imperial Marines and Zhodani Commandos during one of the mightiest conflicts to occur in Charted Space - the Fifth Frontier War. This game includes everything you need to engage in these close quarter battles, including full colour deluxe game boards, strategy cards, vital and never-before-seen background covering the Imperium and Zhodani Consulate, and two complete forces ready to fight! Inside the Box The Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War box set contains: 16 Imperial Marines 16 Zhodani Commandos, including 2 Warbots Full-colour 64 page Rulebook (download sample pages right HERE!) 40 Unit and Strategy Cards 6 Deluxe Gameboards (11.7 x 16.5 inches each) Thick cardstock counters to mark Wounds, Entry Points, Barricades and Objectives. Free-standing Iris Valves, in both open and closed configurations. Keep an eye on our Updates, as we will have plenty more previews of the rules, miniatures, and a full battle report of one of the missions! Playing the Game We have created a rules set that is very easy to get to grips with (you will have the basic rules memorised within a few minutes of playing) and yet mirrors the core rules of the Traveller RPG closely. All actions, for example, are accomplished by succeeding in an appropriate check (such as a Gun Combat check to shoot an enemy or Computers check to hack a sealed door). Play begins by selecting a ship to board, such as a Destroyer, Cruiser, or (gulp!) Battleship, and then both players build appropriate forces to attack or defend the vessel. This could be as small as a platoon or an entire company, depending on the type of ship being assaulted. An initial breach scenario is played and, from there, players will proceed through several scenarios as the two forces battle one another, culminating in either the attacking force reaching a critical objective, such as the power plant or bridge, or the defenders throwing their enemies off the ship altogether! This campaign-style of game means players have to be careful as to which forces they commit and when, marshalling their best troops for the most important fights. To complicate matters, both players will acquire Strategy Cards that will allow them to wrong foot their enemy - like turning off the ship's artificial gravity or explosively venting the atmosphere, exposing everyone to the void! Stretch Goals The Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War box set contains everything you need to play these exciting battles on the tabletop - but we have the opportunity to give you more for your money and further expand this corner of the Traveller universe. Taken on the Run If we reach a total of £60,000, we will include a printed short story written by fan-favourite Martin Dougherty. Taken on the Run begins during the first few minutes of the Fifth Frontier War and will take you through a dangerous boarding action from the point of view of the Imperial Marines. The Aslan We do not want the Imperials and Zhodani to have all the fun! If we reach a total of £80,000, we will add both the rules and 16 miniatures for the powerful Aslan, a warrior race who will look forward to boarding the largest enemy warships. The Aslan lack the sophisticated armour of the Imperium, but more than make up for that with lethal weaponry, a penchant for close combat, and sheer predatory ferocity! The Vargr Often derided as mere corsairs and pirates, the Vargr have a lot to prove. If we reach a total of £100,000, we will add both the rules and 16 miniatures for a Vargr raiding force. While not known as mighty warriors, the Vargr are exceedingly good at what they do, and many a starship has fallen to their cunning tactics. Multi-Deck Battles If we reach a total of £110,000, we will add rules to combine two or more sets of Vanguard: Boarding Actions in the Fifth Frontier War so you can launch multi-deck assaults upon a warship and really keep the defenders on their toes! After More Traveller? Traveller is one of the oldest Roleplaying Games still around, and it has built up a massive amount of background lore. You can explore this universe by adding any of the following to your pledge, simply by increasing the amount you have pledged by the appropriate amount (no need to increase your pledge level, just the pledge amount!). These items will be dispatched to you post free after the surveys for the Kickstarter have been sent out, or when they are available, whichever is soonest. Traveller Starter Set (everything you need to start playing the Traveller RPG): £50 The Element Class Cruisers Ship Builder's Blueprints (explore the inner workings of an Imperial warship): £50 The Pirates of Drinax (a massive sandbox campaign to throw you into the Traveller universe): £70 Ties to the RPG? One question we have already been asked is whether you can take Travellers from the RPG and use them in Vanguard... We will not be producing 'adventurer' miniatures at this time, but we will be taking steps to ensure miniatures produced for future games are compatible with Vanguard. However, if you already have some suitable miniatures, it is an easy step to import them into Vanguard, as the important skills will translate across directly. After that, it is just a matter of worrying about the equipment. If you have characters you would like to see in Vanguard, drop us a line in the comments and we will go through them, walking you through the process to convert them! Risks and challenges We have always delivered on our Kickstarter projects and if you were to ask one of our previous backers of, say, the new Paranoia or previous Traveller project Element Cruisers Blueprints box set, we believe you would hear that the quality of our Kickstarter projects is always worth it. That said, we have taken steps to ensure Vanguard does not overrun its projected completion date. For a start, while tweaks will continue throughout the Kickstarter process, all Imperial and Zhodani miniatures are complete (you can see painted prototypes above!), the game boards are finished, and the core rules written and undergoing continual playtests. For the production of both the box set and miniatures, we are using a factory that we have used many times in the past, including the recent Traveller box sets, Paranoia supplements, and (a blast from the past!) the award-winning Starship Troopers miniatures game. This company is highly reliable and consistently produces good work on time. Mongoose Publishing announced the start date of the KS for their Traveller 28mm skirmish game as Nov 14th. http://blog.mongoosepublishing.co.uk/?m=201811
  21. Haven't seen this one posted yet.
  22. What's up, denizens of the Reaper forums! I'm proud to be able to show you some of Breachstorm ; the new sci-fi skirmish game launching on 9/18/18. :D Breachstorm is a small-scale, fast-paced game featuring 6-8 models per side that's streamlined to play in under an hour. Every part of the game - from picking your asymmetric, narrative objectives to setting up the terrain, is a crucial part of the game's strategy and a unique activation system allows players to take turns acting with small portions of their team lead by powerful Field Officers so you're never out of the action for long. The Kickstarter features two factions - the felinoid Zhen'thrar prides and the human Homeworld Confederacy; each with their own unique playstyle and a several troop options rendered in highly detailed resin figures. In addition, optional add-ons include cross-faction mercenary "contractors", deluxe acrylic tokens sets, measuring widgets, and laser-cut terrain templates. Two more factions; the enigmatic Ativari Conclave and numerous Volucrid Host, as well as additional game components, variant sculpts and mercenary models will be available as stretch goals. You can learn more about Breachstorm and even read the full rules and models statlines at www.breachstorm.com! Stay tuned for the Kickstarter campaign launching 9/18/18!
