New giant, old giants from the first chibi KS re-sized to 40mm (some thought the originals were too big to be bosses in a number of games like SDE/Arcadia Quest etc) and a Trojan Pony

From a chibi standpoint, I like that the frost giant has a silly lightning bolt that looks like it's from a kid's cereal.

Thanks everyone ... I am really excited about this project ... especially now with the new resin and release formulas that work with any brush on or spray primer.    Stretch Goals that we will hopefully discuss soon will have voting to unlock the other 3 Giants and 2 Elementals (and after that we have fun new stuff to come)

Not a chibi fan normally.  But I like these monsters a bunch!

I just read about needing specific primers on their website.  So the real question is if you buy old models in the KS, are you still going to have that problem?

One of the promises is that ALL castings for this KickStarter (new releases and previously existing figures) will be done with the new resin formula.  So no special primers will be needed for anything you get as a reward from this KickStarter.

Update #2

May 19 2017

FUNDED! Thank you backers. VOTE here for the Giant to unlock for Stretch Goal #1

In just over 3 days, we have reached our funding goal to make 12 new or resized Chibi Giants and Swarm miniatures.   Thank you so much backers.   We really appreciate your support.

But we still have 2 weeks left so lets get several more figures unlocked to choose from.

We are going to let you the backers pick which Chibi is unlocked next when we reach $7,500!   Will it be the battle hungry Fire Giant or the magic wielding Cloud Giant.   All you need to do reply to this update and let us know Fire or Cloud.   The one with the most votes will unlock to be made when we reach $7,500.

Thank you again for helping us successfully fund these fun large scale Chibi miniatures!

Update 3

Spreading the news

Just wanted to stop in and say that I've been working to get the KickStarter shared in as many media sources as I can to help us break through Stretch Goal #1.

I am grateful to all our backers for helping this project fund and will continue to seek out new ways to share the project online to help us unlock that Cloud Giant (and hopefully) more for Stretch Goal #1. 

If you have any way to help us spread the word about the project as we approach our final week, thank you for any and all assistance!

Tom @ Impact!
 

 

 

spreading the word = more chibi goodies

you know it makes sense

Update #4

Jun 1 2017

Final Day! All Stretch Goal are revealed. 3 new items added to KickStarter

 

First off Chris and I wanted to thank all the backers that are reading this update.

This KickStarter has been one of the wildest of all rides for us that we've had.   We've had over $2000 in cancelled pledges during this KickStarter ... fortunately we've had a matching amount of new pledges to offset that during the time since we funded (so thank you backers from the last 12 days for that).    Enough cancelled pledges to easily have unlocked two stretch goals.    KickStarter is a fickle beast and we are not trying to read too much into it.   The good news is for all of you ... we funded!   KickStarter does not allow cancelled pledges in the final 24 hours that would de-fund a project so these new chibi WILL get made and that is the good news for us.

As a thank you to all the backers we wanted to show you the art we had Lorraine do for us for all the stretch goals.    We hate wasting Lorraine art ... so while the majority of these did not unlock ... we will definitely slow trying to work on them to have them made or maybe try to get the rest of them made with a future KickStarter.   Chris and I really were excited by the art for this KickStarter and we are sorry that this project did not generate the buzz like any of our many previous Chibi KickStarters.  

But before we show you the art ... we are adding 3 new unlocked items right now today in hopes that we can get to $7500 and unlock the Cloud Giant (which based on requests we also plan to make a 30mm version with longer ears for an Elven Mage).

New unlocks are:

Chibi Rooster Swarm (so $3 for 1, $10 for 4 and $15 for 6)

71fc11b824cc0a9288e014f2307e9596_origina

Cockatrice Mother and Chicks set - $10

8f4b9502d41fe77556b2d1b5e1c0aa9e_origina

50mm Pit Lord $10

3e0502bba0da40c5e74f76f284922f96_origina

Again ... thank you so much for all the backers that helped us fund this project today and I hope we can get a small surge of backers on the final day to fund the Cloud Giant and Elven Mage!

Here was the rest of the art from Lorraine for the project

      a new Impact! project offers 12 frog folk either for RPGs (with smaller heads etc) or as Chibis (with larger heads etc)



      you can buy the minis directly as physical prints

      or you can buy the STLs if you have a 3D printer of your own

      Digital Models - You can purchase the STL 3-D Print file for any of the below 24 models for $2 each. One entire set of STL 3-D Print files for the 12 models in either RPG or Chibi format is $15. All 24 STL 3-D Print files are $25.

      (NOTE: The RPG Frog Folk Merchant is available for as a free download below .. you do not need to buy it!)

      Physical Models - You can purchase individual physical copies of the miniatures for any of the below 24 models (see the image for price per a model). One entire set of 12 physical miniatures in either RPG or Chibi format is $65. All 24 physical miniatures for this KickStarter (both sets) is only $110. The sets are discounted for this KickStarter from the expected retail prices of $70 and $130 for the sets when/if they go to into our retail store.

      The physical models both RPG and Chibi are designed for an average Frog Folk Villager to be 28mm in total height when standing. Since most Frog Folk are shown of smaller stature than a Human in most RPG settings we feel this scale helps show that well.

      Free Sample!
      If you want a sample of the models, Cute Loot Miniatures is providing the RPG version of the Frog Folk Merchant for free to download for your review!

      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      Main Game ($80)

       
      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

       
      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
      Basically a Tweaked version of Arcadia Quest designed to run faster and be easier to set up, with Sci-Fi-ification

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)
