Confrontation Resurrection

Recommended Posts

Just heard about this. I'm super excited, but my wallet hurts already. Definitely a top 3 miniatures line and game for me. There is a book of faces page already. Can't wait!

Been talking about this on Dakka in the News and Rumors forum for awhile. Mostly rumors, though!

Main questions are support for or release of previously released models, as well as rights to the sculptures or whatever.

Depends.

 

Will it be the metal miniatures or the prepainted plastic ones that get ressurected?

 

The First...Excitement..!!!

 

The Second...meh..

I'd be interested in seeing what they come up with.

Somehow, I missed the whole thing the first time around. Was the game any good?

I am not, but I did not ever fall into confrontation until much later (when they had gotten to prepainted, and I was done with that at that point).  I'm curious to see what they do with it, if it's more like Heroclix or if it's more akin to D&D miniatures, or, finally, akin to Super Dungeon Explore Warbands.

I still have some of the metal minis in my to do pile.

 

Awesome stuff.

 

In the past I painted some of their Undead and Wolfen, Great stuff.

 

However the plastics and prepaints didn't appeal to me at all.

It killed my interest.

The 3rd edition of the game was really good as it was in the printed book. But then they made an addendum that effectively made ranged attacks broken. If you can find the book cheap and just print out cards to proxy minis, there was quite a lot of depth to it. But yeah, the pre-paints were a horrible idea.

 

I still have a big plastic tote full of metal Confrontation stuff. Pretty sure I have all but 1 Wolfen model, all the Griffin, and all the Drunes. And a smattering of other things too. But would love to get Lions, Ophidians and Devourers still.

      Welcome to the Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Return to the Black Root Forest Kickstarter Campaign.  For many years, renowned sculptor Ben Siens has added great sculpts to our line of fantasy figures.  A year ago, we ran a successful campaign adding beastmen and treemen into our range of miniatures.  Over the past year, Siens has sculpted more wonderful figures for us and we decided to offer them to you via a second Kickstarter.
          Our primary goal for this campaign is getting the funds needed for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we get the funding for production molds, we can also keep Ben sculpting new figures for future lines.  We need you help to get this done so please pledge today!
        Our plan is to have 11 new codes but we will also be offering these along with the entire range of Ben Siens sculpted figures.
       
       
       
       
      There's only 4 days left in the campaign, so if you want some well-made 15mm goodness...

      Just wanted to throw this one out there.  Witchborn is a rather cool tabletop minis game, but there is also a companion app for each scenario with a lot of variety that allows you to play that scenario many times, but each one can be a very different experience.  Your warband will also evolve over time.  I discovered the game at GenCon in 2017 and have really enjoyed it every time I've played.  Plus, Cory is really cool and responsive.  I haven't checked this out yet, but you can also play the game on Roll20.
       
      Did I mention that they use Reaper Bones minis?

      For when your heroes are slightly less than heroic?
       
       
      Welcome to the 2nd release of Fatal Fantasy! 
      Edit (29/09/2020) NEW Painted pictures in Gallery and Stretch Goal Update. Edit (12/09/2020) NEW Stretch Goal section added! Edit (21/09/2020) NEW Add-ons added!  
      This project brings you 23 new fantasy casualties for use in your tabletop wargames or board games. 
      You'll find close-ups and measurements in 'The Miniatures' section, please also take a look at the contents of the 'Pledges' section and the details in the 'Shipping' section. Excellent painted examples by the talented Paul Allen from 'Toomuchdevlan' and Russ Painting are dotted between the sections with more in the 'Gallery'.
      The original sculpts and metal production moulds have been finished and tested in advance so metal miniatures will be ready to ship as soon as the funding period is ended in mid-October.
      I have included a resin option for the casualty bases too - this is to give backers outside of the UK, a cheaper shipping option. However, the resin casualty casts won't be ready until mid-November. (International backers can also choose metal but the shipping costs will be very high due to the weight of the miniatures). I've deliberately kept the resin availabilty low - this is to make sure there are no delays due to casting lead time. If the casting gets ahead of schedule, I will add further resin availabilty.
      In the add-ons section, you'll find the previous Fatal Fantasy casualties, Fantasy Fighters and also some NEW Ye Alchemist sculpts. These miniatures are all METAL and have had the moulds tested.
      This is my 5th project so I am experienced in reward completion and delivery. 
      Slain Mimic sculpted by Aaron Howdle The 23 core miniatures were originally designed and sculpted by Christian Af Bjärgö and Aaron Howdle. 
      Measurements are in green, alongside the pictures below.

      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.
