HOARDERS is a competitive 2 player board game that pits a band of Dwarves, bent on recovering the lost treasure of King Dorum, against an enormous and greedy Mountain Troll. The game plays anywhere from 20-40 minutes, where-in the Dwarves strive to recapture the Relic of the Iron Peak and the covetous Troll defends HIS treasure at any cost.

Long ago, King Dorum sent away the Relic of the Iron Peak Dwarves to aid their kin in a far off land. En route, the Relic and the treasure with it was stolen by a filthy Mountain Troll. The Relic was considered lost, until now… King Dorum’s son, Khorum, now rules the Iron Peak Dwarves and he has sent his bravest warriors and lancers to recover the Relic from the vile creature’s lair.

A brave band of Dwarven Lancers and Warriors storm forth from the Iron Peak to raid the Troll’s lair, where they will kill the troll, steal back their treasures and reclaim their birth right, the Relic.

As the enormous, smelly, Mountain Troll, you will control its huge feet and powerful Hammer. The Troll needs to fend off the greedy dwarves to protect his treasure hoard. Did we mention Dwarves are good eatin'?!

a417f80b2c2e232c4a7ed819969bba04_originaDwarf and Troll card examples Three ways to play

  • The Dwarves must recover all three Treasure piles (fairly hard)
  • The Dwarves must recover the Relic that was stolen, but it's in which Treasure pile? The Troll doesn't even know!
  • The Dwarves are after the Relic, but this time the Troll knows exactly where it is.

$30 for actual pewter lances!? This is a very confusing project. Everything looks very professionally done except including toothpicks as stand ins for miniature lances in the base game. That killed the project for me.

It's a well known fact that trolls keep their treasure tucked in between their teeth.

How much would it cost to just buy 7 dwarf spear guys from Reaper + 2 Dwarf hero types + a nice big troll?

I sorta get that the troll is partly abstracted and is much larger than these dwarfs...

 

...wonder what the biggest troll or giant made by Reaper would be.

It looks like part of the gameplay involves removing the lances from the models at various points...

Well, there are a few other hiding spots, but picks generally help with those, too.

 

 

 

Doesn't look like there's a dwarven spearman in Bones, yet. How odd. Might prevent the cheapness of coming at it sideways like that.

Warrior Hoarders get a stone and some toothpicks to represent the dwarves

 

And

 

A pair of slippers and a squeaky toy hammer to represent the troll

 

King Hoarders get miniatures

Oddly enough, there are quite a few historical lines that don't include spears and leave it to the modeller to come up with copper wire or whatever.  But yeah this appears to be a game mechanic, based on the description.

I was thinking of the Kragmarr Warlord faction spear-dwarf. He is metal, rather than bones. Seven of him would be $42 dollars.

When looking at the Kickstarter... I didn't see anything about toothpicks now. Wonder if it got changed.

 Maybe...

 

$30 for actual pewter lances!? This is a very confusing project.  [...]

5x Reaper Kagmarr spear-dwarfs @ $6 each is $30.  So, 5 entire dwarfs AND spears...  thirty bucks.

If I had to guess, I'd say that the feet are probably not required to be in a specific configuration on the board, so the troll and be feet together or have a wide stance.  as a concept, that doesn't work with a regular mini.

      About
      You spoke and we listened ...
      Thank you for checking out our project. After our first successful project we are back with the same great detailed miniatures but in the 28mm scale many of you wanted.
      Made from injection moulded PVC we were incredibly happy with the quality of our previous models, the factory we worked with were very efficient allowing us to start to fulfil our Kickstarter a full two months early.
      We worked hard to have our sculpts in place meaning as soon as we are successful we can spring into action and instruct the factory to start the process. 
      Core Box Alpha containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Core Box Beta containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Pledge for both to make a saving. Both Core Boxes containing 4 large Animals (2inch base) and 12 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Containing various animals and companions these 2 core sets are everything you loved in the first but with a 28mm scale.

      About
      Mirrors of Tullarn is a new range of 28mm miniatures from Knights of Dice, set in a distinctive fantasy setting and cast in glorious metal!
      These characterful figures have been sculpted by Anton Ducrot (from Flytrap Factory) for tabletop miniature wargames and would look amazing in any fantasy setting, whether that is your Dungeons & Dragons or other roleplaying campaigns or as weary adventurers in your Frostgrave warbands or other tabletop games.
      We are using this campaign to fund the production molds and the initial release of 28 figures from four factions, the Anram, Tarusa, Lahari and Saresh, in glorious white-metal!  Hopefully (with your help!) we can also release a host additional figures in the form of freebies, add-ons and awesome stretch goals!
      A small band of Lahari faces of against some Saresh warriors All the miniatures have been sculpted and master molds created, we simply need the funds to make the production molds to put these figures into full production.
      With your help, we can bring these figures to market and hopefully get a good headstart on expanding the range quickly.
      The Anram defend their mountain hide-away from a marauding band of Tarusa raiders There are 8 simple pledge levels to choose from, we’ve broken them into easy to understand groups. Simply pick a pledge level, (each one represents a group of figures from the different factions), you'll then receive any FREE STRETCH GOALS unlocked during the campaign ... the more stretch goals that are unlocked, the more figures you get for free!
      A group of hired knights accompanied by their paymaster The Wanderer - no rewards, select this pledge to simply show your support!  Thank you!
      The Nomad - back the project at this level and you'll receive the Kickstarter Exclusive 'Void Witch', and gain access to the Add-ons and Stretch Goals to add more when they are unlocked. This pledge does not qualify for any free add-ons.
      Anram Nobility - receive the 7 Anram figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Tarusa Chieftain - receive the 7 Tarusa figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!

      The masters of time, the Anram live high on the highest peaks across Tullarn Savage mountain clansmen, bent on domination and oppression! Masters of the oceans, rivers and trade the Lahari wear the finest silks and flaunt oppulent treasures Saresh tend to the fertile valleys and vast farmlands of Tullarn A true Warlord knows how to bring people together, and then pitch them at each others throat!

      Here is a Bones inspired kickstarter that I think my fellow painters will appreciate, a travel and display case for your mini.
