Minotaur Brute looks good. Maybe open that up as an addon? I know its on preorder on your website.

I'm liking what I see so I upped to the $50/3 box level.

Thank you. I'm correcting and revising what the artist is sending, and then ill do a rank of 5 for the page.  Throwing some Minotaurs to backers wouldn't kill me, perhaps 1 for each pledge.

Some minor sketches, correcting the wicker shield to be just as it was. However, the idea of a neutral torso is being introduced, and should open up a lot of melee weapon possibilities. 

 

The rank of 5 should include some special add ons. Narrowing down the choices, as thracians were not typically held to traditional standards you might find in Greece. If they carried items into battle, they would be light.

now if you turn that spear around, shorten it a bit and the arm comes separate from the body, you'd have a javelin thrower. Legs extra, too, so that it could be a more dynamic pose (or were you focusing on the upper torso here to give as the basic idea?).

 

I guess we need to know how many parts you are planning for one miniature: head extra, torso extra, one leg part or two leg parts? ... two arms extra with open hands so you can put different weapons into those hands?

How can it be ensured that the arms fit the body in different positions? ...

It would have to come down to creativity. If we want a neutral body like the spear above to have a bow, we would have it carry a bow. The original javelin pose repurposed to portray a spear backing the first line. Another example following legs shows how we can use the neutral spear body, with a pair of new legs.

With the minotaur added for free to everyone at $25 or over the value has really increased.

Assuming a discounted value of $10 for the minotaur, the $50 level gives you 3 boxes at basically $13.33 each. That is a super value. $1.33 per beastman.

So... I think I am out. The project looks really nice, but from some comments I have read it seems like delivery/production is being underestimated. The Creator responded but with more of a "the factory is nice and like us" kind of response. Also the material is going to be the stuff Legos are made of... Not sure about that either. I have tried to cut Legos (don't ask) and it would be a nightmare to convert whole units out of.

 

I hope they do get funded. The project looks great, and it is a great value... but it is starting to sound more risk than I am willing to do. So I wont be keeping up with this thread for updates.

It might be the angle from what the renders are viewed at. I should be able to get some future renders where we straighten it out for the viewers. Fixing a concept for a throwing knife and a throwing axe to help the javelin line a tad. Consulting with the factory if HIP plastic is an option. The original inspiration with ABS plastic was due in part to Kingdom of Death. We saw how they used resin, and experimented with ABS (if I read correctly, they blend ABS and HIP) to make their products affordable.

Kingdom Death models are... affordable?  :blink: 

 

I think I just failed a saving throw for sanity. My reality is coming undone. :;,;:

That Minotaur looks awesome!!  Is it for sure offered if I pledge?

 

I only paint so I would not need more than 10 and would only be at the $25 pledge.

 

I am pretty interested in these... I have been on a beastman kick lately for some reason and I think these would fit in nicely.

100% guaranteed to have a Minotaur for each pledge of 25 or more. They will be on hand in about a week, we have the Fed ex express number to keep tabs.

      $70 for 100+ miniatures, plus a free Terrax. Some overlap with Bones KS sculpts.
       
      Company is based in Spain, and, while this is their first plastic injection molding KS, they've been producing resin miniatures in previous KS.
       
      Myself, I've backed Bones I-IV, and double-pledged for Black List Game's Fantasy I and II, so am on the fence. And have a lot of mold lines to scrape.

      This Kickstarter just launched for double-sided magnetic dungeon tiles. Similar to Ettinstone tiles, and aside from appearing to be a bit thinner, I can’t see why these wouldn’t work with Ettinstone tiles (I certainly plan to use them that way).

      I didn't see this KS listed after a quick search.  I like the painters, and I like HD, but there's just so much free stuff out there now...

      Story
        Fallen Knight is a classic cooperative dungeon-crawler set in an outlandish dark fantasy world. Players take on the role of death knights, lost warriors who devour the memories of the dead for their silent gods. Once consumed, these long-forgotten memories can be used to unlock powerful, forsaken abilities. Alongside their mechanical advantages, these memories will be showcased in a beautifully realized artistic comic, revealing new insights into these dark lands..  Through a combination of its foreboding themes, exciting game mechanics, and unique artistic vision, Fallen Knight occupies an innovative space within the board game hobby, and we're so excited for you to be a part of it!
       

       

        Story The Fallen Knights were created by the Gods with the sole purpose of acquiring and reliving lost memories, to better satiate the Gods' voyeuristic appetites. Like dogs on a leash, the Knights were bound by oath to track and consume specific memories, as demanded by their greedy masters. These lost memories -- once consumed -- would offer the Knights a rare, tender glimpse of life. Yet it was fleeting; when returned, they were reduced once more to lifeless husks by their hideous lords. And so it continued for an age, in an endless cycle of servitude, lifelessness and hate....
      Now, the Gods are gone. The curse is broken, and the Knights are free to live and relive any memories they encounter. But like bad dreams, these memories are vague and fractured. And so it's time to leave the realm of the Gods, for Fallen Knights must forge their own path, or be lost forever alongside the memories they covet.
        Corpses As you travel the world, you will absorb the memories of corpses - both found and defeated - in order to enhance your characters, freely developing them as you wish.
      You will spend 'life' to reanimate 'unsouled' Fallen Knights, mastering their bodies and upgrading their potential effect on the game.
        Damned sword The Fallen Knight's 'Damned Sword' can naturally morph into new weapons; you'll be able to access the martial abilities of any character class, as long as you've consumed the right memories!
        Gameplay Fallen knight is a 1-4 player cooperative dungeon crawler board game. The gameplay consists of strategic, visceral combat, embedded within a campaign-driven framework. Though consumed memories, players will unlock the abilities of dead adventurers, which they can then use in combat. Each ability is represented by a unique ability card, composed of an individual action, a character class and weapon type.                 
      Synergies are special active or passive skills that Fallen Knights will receive if they have multiple abilities of the same class or weapon type. With hundreds of ability cards and over 20 unique synergies, Fallen Knight provides a dynamic and exciting space for character creation, customization and optimization!
      Instead of dice, Fallen Knight utilizes a sub-action deck. With over 20 sub-action cards, players can flexibly tailor their strategy to best deal with their immediate foes!
      Monsters are controlled by a combination of Monster Action cards and Monster Behavior cards. Monster actions - unique to each creature in Fallen Knight - will dictate its actions during boss battle combat. Monster behaviors - drawn from a deck shared by all monsters in the game - will modify the monster's actions by adjusting damage range or type, changing targets, or activating a myriad of special abilities.

      Looks like Miniac will be doing something to promote this, which I think will likely take it to funded.

      I think the frogfolk are particularly fun, but they have a bunch of other stuff. Worth checking out, there's an early bird special for the STL files or the physical resin prints. Because they're doing it all in house, appears to have a pretty quick turnaround too.
