Australian Animal Miniatures Kickstarter

Olaf the Stout

Recommended Posts



Hi all,


I'm very proud to announce the Australian Animal Miniatures Kickstarter.


Over the years a large number of awesome Aussie animals have created as tournament support for the Southern Shrike Bowl and Eucalyptus Bowl Bood Bowl tournaments.  We've now got enough different minis that people can make full teams out of them. However, due to their limited nature, many of them are really hard to get hold of and can be expensive when you do.


So, as a once off, the 3 miniature companies and 2 tournaments behind the miniatures have all joined forces to make these miniatures available again via this Kickstarter with some awesome bundled rates. So if you've always wanted a Koala with a weed wacker or a bowie knife, or a boxing Kangaroo, or a chainsaw wielding Platypus this Kickstarter is for you.  Many of the figures in this Kickstarter will not be available to buy after the Kickstarter has finished, so this may be your best and last chance to get a hold of these minis.

Note:  In the interests of full disclosure, I am the tournament organiser for Southern Shrike Bowl, a Blood Bowl tournament that this Kickstarter is helping to support.  The Kickstarter itself is being run by Impact Miniatures, the company behind the Chibi Dungeon Adventures Kickstarter, the D14 and D18 Die Kickstarter and the Necronomicon Cthulhu Minis Kickstarter.


Feel free to ask any questions.  I may not be able to answer them all myself, but I should be able to get the answer pretty quickly.

I've overdosed a bit on Kickstarter lately, but these certainly look great so I'll be keeping an eye on them. They might make fun surprise additions to my Dreadball team.


Now if you had a Kiwi or the like for your mates across the ditch then I definitely couldn't resist...

Arkady, I'm sure some people don't like 'counts as' teams as they can potentially be confusing if the positions aren't clearly marked on the team. However, I've played against a number of counts as teams here in Australia and seen quite a few online from overseas players. 'Counts as' teams seem to be relatively common and somewhat accepted by the Blood Bowl community in my experience.


I myself have some Singirit minis (African animals) that I use as a 'counts as' Norse team. I recently played a tournament with them and had no issues with them as I mark the edges of the bases different colours to represent the different positions. Personally the most trouble I've had with distingusing positions on a team is Orc teams customised from Warhammer minis. Trying to figure out which ones are Blitzers, which are Lineorcs and which are Black Orcs can sometimes be quite a challenge!

As I mentioned in the project I'm actually more interested in these to convert them for use in Gamma World or very strange D&D encounters ( "You are attacked by, a werekoala!" ). The game gear overall mostly looks like it could be painted to represent leather armor or improvised stuff in a post-apocalypse setting.

      Interesting Kickstarter for resin minis based on the Mork Borg setting (Nothing something I've heard of, but I barely know anything about RPGs):-
      Also not a company I've heard of before, but they do seem to have a pretty solid track record.

      What is it about this week and Kickstarters for weird minis? On top of this one there's Coven launching on Saturday too, I'm supposed to be getting out of this whole Kickstarting malarkey!

      Robbits (the nickname for Urban Halflings) are a small mischievous folk with an uncanny habit of ‘finding’ ancient relics of vast and horrifying power. In this case, a troublesome Ring, belonging to an evil wizard called Nörmün. Nörmün has sent his Goblins to retrieve the Ring, even as the Wizard Gudgrief tries to form a Party of Dwarves, Elves and Robbits to take the Ring away on a Quest.
      But the reluctant Robbits know that nobody ever comes back from Gudgrief’s Quests, so the Dwarves are forced to Press-Gang and the Elves to Enchant them out of their Pits to join the Party. However, Robbits are innately ‘Tricksy’ and will use Magic and Excuses to avoid going on the Quest. Only one Robbit will live to tell the epic tale of... 
      Our card game is a parody of Epic Quests in roleplaying and fantasy fiction, where brave heroes would normally gather together to find, destroy, or hide the 'McGuffin'. Robbits however, want nothing to do with it, and must use Magic and Excuses to avoid going on the Quest, all the time dealing with troublesome Dwarves, Elves and Goblins.
      This game contains, 100 fabulously illustrated cards,  a rulebook and a die. 
      The card game is for 1-6 people (and is also a solid two player game) and games are incredibly varied.  It is ideal as a warm-up or filler for game evenings or just some interactive fun with friends.  It is a fast-paced game, typically taking 30 minutes or so.
      Once again we have a beautiful die produced by Q-Workshop for the Battle Die.  The Battle Die is used to resolve Battles in the game, the outcome of some events and Enchanting Elves.
      The Robbits are also available as minis, in Midlams classic style, and they're also adding in 'The Book of the Dead' a 9minute card game in some of the pledge levels.   
      They're only at 70 backers and 400% yet, so there's still room for a few more backers...
