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.

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.


      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.
