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.

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.


      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.

      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!

      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
