Someone posted some of these sculpts before, I remember making fun of them because they have picket fences on their shoulders for some reason. ::):

 

Still, the renders they have are beautiful, I love the fact that both male and female figures look powerful and aggressive. The first production sample of the really large female troll looks great, and I think she'd be amazing assembled and painted, even if she is also wearing the picket fence. The mining guild elf is impressive, I like how they managed to make him look weathered and sturdy, but still managing to look elfin.

 

I'm not much of a skirmish gamer, but the design philosophy sounds good. I'll definitely check out the rules, and I think chances are good I'll back the ks for some minis at least.

Ya, like Aku-chan said, their first one barely funded and was full of really bad greens. They were originally Rune and rand into some legal troubles with that name and, I believe, decided to cancel all the original stuff and refunded everyone who backed via IGG as they weren't sure how long it would take to rebrand and change whatever else got them in trouble.

 

Edit: Here's the IGG.

 

And here's a quote about some legal issues:

 

You may have noticed some changes on the site. Due to a legal issue, we have to put a hold on our first rule book. The game will be known by its working title "Project 1" (original we know) until we have decided on a new title.

At this stage those who pledged on our Indiegogo campaign for the rulebook will receive a refund for that book due to the legal issue. Those effected will be contacted shortly.

Sadly this issue is beyond our control but we will soldier on.

 

I have to say, looking though things they've really improved. Here are their first sculpts from the IGG:

And here's what they're making now:

Apperently the biggest reason for this change is they're working with (most likely contracting through) MaxMini which is a fairly established EU mini maker (CMoN carries some of their stuff).

I remember the original project now! I didn't like the initial models at all. What they are showing now is a world apart. A rebrand and change of location for the crowdfunding is probably the best thing that could happen to them

Those look very cool, I love the style for the female warriors so far especially. I'm not sure I've ever seen a serious female goblin warrior like that before. I don't have any money for miniatures for the rest of the year to be honest, but since they're across the ditch I may support this a little for down under. :)

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
