A new set of Dwarven Musketeer miniatures produced by Gary Price.

I backed his first Kickstarter and they were a real treat. Great sculpts, nicely cast, and very characterful.

About this project

For our third Kickstarter, the Dwarf Musketeers prepare for battle, mustering over forty poses (not counting head variants) sculpted by the very talented John Pickford. For this campaign, we are lowering our prices and including a bonus figure with every pack. Hopefully, this will help ease the exchange rate for our international backers. Our aim is to help you build units of dwarf musketeers, pikemen, and halberdiers for your OldhammerDragon Rampant, or Kings of Wararmies. We have core infantry, command figures, and two new Mounted Dwarf Musketeer poses. We even have some superb limited-edition figures rolled into some exciting stretch goals.

Though popularized as duelists and adventurers, the Dwarf Musketeers’ battlefield record was exceptional. From the Wars of Distemper and the H’Ogrenot Wars through the War of the Spinach Succession (also known as the War of the Halfling Succession), theirs was a chronicle of valor and victory. In times of war, the Dwarf Musketeers might even be seen fighting side-by-side with their arch rivals, the Cardinal’s Guard Ogres. In fact, the Cardinal himself, as General of France, frequently chose the Dwarf Musketeers as his Forlorn Hope, the brave few chosen to lead the attack, reinforce the battle line, or assault the defended position.

The core of this release is comprised of musketeers on the battlefield: advancing, at the ready, firing, and loading.

The firing line includes figures both kneeling and standing (although, to be truthful, with fantasy dwarves it is sometimes hard to tell which is which).

To fortify the musketeers’ line of battle, we have pike-armed dwarves standing, at the ready, and advancing. These poses complement the musketeers so you can model Pike-and-Shotte units as your army requires.

We also offer halberdiers in poses that complement both the pikemen and the musketeers.

All of these poses come with separate, interchangeable heads, so there are numerous modeling options for each pose.

The Regimental Command pack includes Officers that can be modeled as standard-bearers or troop captains, a Sergeant with halberd, and a Sergeant holding his separately cast spontoon or halberd horizontally so he can poke, prod, and otherwise push his soldiers into formation and keep the ranks aligned. We also added a Senior Officer and a Halfling Drummer to the list of Personalities.

well, elves would not look as good as musketeers, that's for sure ;)

Just once it would be nice to see some elfin musketeers so we could make a proper judgement. I mean they are typically shown to be slim (other than Porthos), fit individuals with easily finessable weapons, and are portrayed as dashing and charismatic individuals, which seems to put them well within the elfin wheelhouse.

      DCC Dying Earth
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!

      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.

      Hi everyone, I wanted to share that we have just launched the third Dunkeldorf Kickstarter! Our last Kickstarter was focusing on "The Prancing Peacock" more or less a full tavern setting. 

      Our new Kickstarter still focuses on the town of Dunkeldorf, but this time it's all about a Brewer "Sven Wentzel" who's also the leader of a ruthless gang of thugs. There's also more focus on the mutants that dwell in the sewers beneath the town. Finally, the third "Faction" for this campaign is Witch Hunters and their Hired Swords who are en route towards Dunkeldorf to root out the mutants they've heard continued rumours about. 

      The Kickstarter can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kinggames/the-kingpin-of-dunkeldorf - With our last 2 campaigns we unlocked a lot of Stretch Goals and included a bunch of extra free miniatures, accessories and pets and we hope to achieve the same this time! 🙂

      One of my fellow party members is publishing their first adventure path on KS!
      "Lament of The Widow is a tale of thrilling mystery and cosmic horror, spanning over 20 elegantly appointed and thoroughly haunted rooms in the labyrinthine world of Moorehouse, each of which contains the potential for rich rewards, powerful magical items, or painful, agonizing failure. Behind our beautifully illustrated cover, players and Game Masters alike will be thrilled to find over 100 pages of carefully crafted maps, incredible illustrations, and detailed descriptions, as well as a new setting-appropriate background option,  brand new magic items, an update to a classic tabletop monster, and an array of original creatures created just for this setting, all brought to life by our passionate, talented team of artists. Will you brave the perils of the Infinite Manor, unravel its secrets and escape with your lives? Or will you remain forevermore within its halls, trapped in a cycle of suffering and torment without end? The choice is yours...if you have the strength to make it."
      It's got some really great art and cool monster concepts! Dalimar is pretty amazingly creative, too - I have 0 doubts it's going to be an awesome adventure.
