#94, hurray! Early bird even.

 

Not much difference in the early bird vs. regular pledge ($5), but I feel all special now. Excepting the one I got at ReaperCon, these will be my first Dark Sword/Stephanie Law minis.

 

As I was entering my pledge, we reached the $10K stretch goal. Next one at $12K (from creator comments).

Holy elf due to misunderstanding world time buddy I was camping here all night, with the kickstarter going live just as I cooked dinner. I hate time zones.

I think I got the last early bird.

It's exciting, it's my first mini kickstarter ever.

So, are you guys in because of the sculpts or because of the Art associated with it? I will be honest, there are a couple I like but there are more than a few that I don't. The sculpts aren't as close to the art as I would like. My other concern is I have about 6 DS minis. Some are perfectly scaled to my other 28mm-32mm stuff but a couple (a duelist girl with a sword and dagger and a lady muse in a dress) are huge... towering over everyone else. I cant tell the scale or if the scale is consistent. They do look nice though.

 

The all or nothing though is the kicker. If I could get the Druid and a few others on their own then I would have likely been in.

I do like the sculpts. Especially the female ones.

Yes, the art work does look different, but I did not expect the sculpts to be 1 on 1 copies - the old Stephanie Law miniatures aren't either, it's just not a style that is easy to convert imho.

And I really like the male druid, my bf is probably going to use it in our current campaign, since most other druid minis look old and have a long beard, which doesn't fit his character.

 

Also, I don't really have that many PC/NPC minis, since I'm fairly new to this hobby and I mostly bought monsters thus far (which I will continue doing), so I have use for them all. A lot of you probably have a box full of female spellcasters, so I understand you're more critical before you buy more of them.

Last but not least, DSM are hard to come by around here, or at least they are quite expensive compared to the kickstarter. For the money I spent (including shipping), I could have bought 9 of them here, and I already get 15 in the kickstarter.

Personally there are none that I hate, I like most of them and I love a few of them.  My biggest criticism of the first Stephanie Law line was that a lot of them weren't at all useful from a gaming perspective, all of these can at least hit a table. 

 

I'm also in the same boat of having difficulty getting Dark Sword minis locally.  I can't easily pick up just one or two and by paying shipping costs over and over, well it adds up.

I feel exactly the same. I love Stephanie Law's art (I have 2 of her books). So many of the first set of Law minis are amazing. There just isn't $100 worth of minis that I want in this set. I can easily find $100 worth of awesome minis in the Dark Sword shop. Heck, I just got a couple in the mail last week. 

 

I hope this project goes through the roof. I'm okay paying full price to pick and choose my favorites later on.

It is not a must have, but I could use a few more ladies in metal. 

I have to balance this vs picking up a display cabinet - hobby money is not exactly tight but I have to set priorities. 

There is a huge neighborhood garage sale next week, if that fails ill fall back to Ikea. Buying into this KS is what I have budgeted for the other.

ill check back in on this after the sales.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
