Dragon Bait Indie Go Go

Recommended Posts

Too bad the three I like are all in different packs. Makes the will save a little too easy...

I like the concepts. The half-orc druid is inspired. I have faith in Kev Adams' sculpting.

 

But I ain't gonna IndieGoGo. Nuh-uh. I'll wait for retail on these puppies.

Is INdieGoGo somehow worse/inferior to kickstarter?

Ehhh...  It's not inherently worse, but it depends on which funding option they choose.  Unfortunately, this one went with flexible funding.  That means that even if the Kickstarter isn't successful, they keep your money.  If they'd gone with fixed funding, it would be basically like a Kickstarter, but with lower exposure.

Seriously?  Thank you for telling me this - I would never, ever back anything under those terms.  I mean that just sounds insane.

The project owners are still obliged to complete the project if they go for 'flexible' funding...I've backed two which have done so.

 

The only difference between IGG and KS is that you pay up front for IGG.

I like the look of this project, but with P&P and customs charges I'm only supporting UK/Euro projects these days

I had the same experience here. Orcs! only raised a little over half of it's funding, but still managed to have many happy customers. I know I was very satisfied by my Orc Hunting Pack: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/orcs/x/87644

 

One very big positive to indiegogo projects, is that fulfillment is usually much faster due to the smaller scope. This project seems already well underway, so minis should be ready pretty quickly.

 

I think I will end up backing. A dozen old school styled minis by Kev Adams for $65 sounds pretty good to me. Although, when I hear Dragonbait, I expect to see this guy:

These are some lovely pieces, but I share the problem of the pieces I like the most being spread across several packs.  I do wonder if we'll see any fun stretch goals past the first two mentioned.

Thanks for that Suden! :) I was the one behind Orcs! and it does me good hearing people being positive about it!

I love old school miniatures but I won't back flex funding projects on Indigogo.  I hope they get made so I can search them out at a retail level.

      Hello again!
       
      here are the other two that I just finished, two elven fighters that Ran Partha did a while back.  They had a couple neat ideas, one was to have a male and female version of a race and class, and these two are the miniatures that are for the Male and Female Elven Fighters.  Not sure who the sculptor is on these, should probably find out.  
       
      I did them both with more or less identical color schemes, partly in the thought that it's the same adventurer just in a different male or female version and then also because it made my life easier with one color scheme instead of two.
       

       
      and here they are together:
       

       
      Anyhows, hope you enjoy!

      My mother died last month. While cleaning up her house my sister found this miniature, probably the last survivor of my original collection, most of which I took with me to college and later gave away.
       
      Does anyone know what it is? I would have purchased it between 1980 and 1984.

      Hello everybody,
      here's one I just completed, a Ral Partha female adventurer, I think sculpted by Julie Guthrie, because it's from the All Things Dark and Dangerous range.  Hoping the photos are in proper focus.

       
      I really enjoyed the fact she had a sling and that the sling ball was sculpted into it.  Not overly happy with my metals on this one, but she'll do for now!

      As I backed Brayan's previous KS but never got my files (I got a email in regards to this KS) but a quick email response & I had my file that I backed + a bonus file. Love the look on the minis. The goblins can be new PC gobs for ReaperCon We Be Goblins. Love the Oriental dragon as well.
