Middara

Recommended Posts

I haven't seen any warning signs, just the typical growing pains that new companies have with their campaigns. Some of the sculpts look like they might be difficult to make, for instance this is the CAD file from the latest update:

a22fc847c8dc06cd7ba9cf67d6fdbf03_origina

It's a fantastic looking figure, but might require some serious assembly. However, if their prototype images are anything to go by, they seem capable of making some fantastic and complex figures, so I'm optimistic. Here's a link to some prototype shots on the board: http://imgur.com/a/KN68C

 

I just locked in my pledge in their pledge manager, it was a painless experience for me. Of course it is pretty simple if you don't want a lot of extras, and since just about everything unlocked is included for free, unless you want duplicates there isn't much needed (I think only the mats and art book weren't included in the base pledge).

 

I even kicked in the extra $10 they mentioned shipping cost them, because they were pretty polite about asking for it as an optional add on.

Has there been any word if minis will come assembled? 

From the FAQ:

 

Will the miniatures require any assembly?

 

- We are still in the process of finding the best and cheapest way to manufacture our miniatures without compromising the quality and the detail.

If there is any assembly required, it will be very minimal.

Have there been any warning signs that might make people reconsider backing Middara? 

 

No KS fulfillment experience, no business experience from the creator. Has anyone found otherwise?

 

LinkedIn says "Manager": https://www.linkedin.com/pub/brooklynn-lundberg/50/651/9b3

Facebook only has personal info: https://www.facebook.com/brooklynn.lundberg

 

IIRC, Prototypes are 3D prints. From Project: Elite, renders *and* 3D prints don't mean anything.

Just a heads up for those who didn't know:

They've upped the minis scale to 38mm.

 

Glad at this point I only backed at the dollar level and haven't added in the pledge manager, as I can't really justify shelling out for minis that won't be of any use for gaming... even if they look really cool.

I always use the 38mm as 'heroic medium'. Your goliaths or really tall humans for example. 

They said that they'll still fit on a 1" base, but I can understand the concern.

Wowzers, this project hasn't had a comment since 2015 and it still doesn't seem to be in production. I decided to wait for this game to hit retail and check out the reviews before shelling out money for it. No idea why there's been such a lengthy development, but I'm hoping it's because they were working to make the gameplay rock solid. I'm still hoping this hits the market someday.

Yeah, there's regular communication and they're getting fairly close to production.  They suffered from a bit of over-reach which increased the complexity of the project.  They've also announced this game will not be released at retail due to cost.

Yes, it certainly seems like they are getting close.  I decided to add a couple more copies since this isn't going to hit retail.  Should easily be able to pay for the one I end up keeping.  I hope....

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.

      Story
      The world of Alberon, as ancient and unknowable as its timeless depths are, has few certainties for those that live in it, but ruin and corruption awaits all but a blessed few.  Halflings are, of course, no exception...
      The Western Wastelands beyond Midlam are a harsh unforgiving environment, that breeds a fierceness through necessity for survival alone.  It is thought that the first halflings to enter the Wastelands, did so unwillingly, captured by Hobgoblin Raiders some several hundred years ago.  
      It is reported that the Hogoblins thought that their small size would make them useful servants for all manner of tasks, but when the monstrous and unstoppable nature of their appetites became apparent, the halflings were stranded in the middle of the wasteland and left them to die.  
      That they didn't is some testament to the hidden reserves and ingenuity of these small folk, but they have not survived unscathed.  Their souls, often forsaken to unknowable gods, have changed as much as their bodies and minds.
      As a counterpoint to the Wasteland halflings, those that inhabit the town have found unusual niches, whether that be as criminal masterminds, pirates, anarchists, grave robbers and the somewhat cliched, but ever problematical, burglars.
      An Excerpt from 'The Robbit' by The Wizard R.R.R. Gudgrief
      Welcome to Halflings Gone Bad - Volume One!
      A collection of sixteen 28mm scale halflings from the wrong side of the elven forest tracks, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Welcome to our second Kickstarter to cover some of the more nefarious occupations and depths that halflings have stooped to.
      The worrying nature of the appearance of wasteland halflings, something seen as a threat to all halfling civilisation, combined with the new depths of depravity of halflings in Midlam has called for a new town council to be convened from amongst the artisans and workers of Halftown.
