Player characters, that's who!     The Auld Grump One of my all time favorite Calvin and Hobbes comics, in case no one could guess.

I lost most of my goodwill towards Paizo about session two of the playtest for the second edition of Pathfinder.   The new Pathfinder is going to stink on ice.   Grump, of all peop

If only there were some kind of platform where you could test the demand for niche products...

I wanted to back this, I liked a lot of the sculpts, even though we don't play Starfinder,

 

Grump talked me out of it, pointing at BOTH the companies involved in the figures.

 

If Grump could see it, so could Paizo, so why was this allowed to go forward? Are they THAT desperate for money and or miniatures?

 

I wanted the blue dragon with shoulder mounted cannon. :lol:

This is literally the ONLY thing I wanted from it...Who doesn't want a dragon wielding a plasma cannon?

Sounds like there would be a market for taking a bones dragon and some of the weapons from the bones CAV's and making magic happen.

 

... gimme a few minutes, and a lot of green stuff - I have one of those awaiting completion. ;p

I'm still sort of contemplating that idea for a Pathfinder Red Dragon riding on top of my resin Dictator B, but...  That's a lot of insanity for the $150 CAD worth of minis we're talking about... 

 

Oh wait, we're talking adding weapons to a dragon.... Hmm.

Not exactly about this kickstarter, but it's very relevant nonetheless:

It looks like Paizo is starting to look elsewhere for Starfinder miniature production.

I rember ordering that dragon...do you think the wizkids miniatures will be all new minis or will they reuse the few Kickstarter minis that where released...hopefully Reaper makes some genaric orcs, elves, troll, etc in space type figures

Probably new, as I understand it Ninja Division retains the rights to their sculpts from this project.

 

Also note that the new line is prepaints only--I'm guessing we won't see unpainted Starfinder models until this KS is resolved.

Another interesting detail is that in the Paizo post they note that Ninja Division retains a license for unpainted miniatures. Ninja Division has been selling prepaints as well to try to make some money to keep the operation afloat--makes me wonder what the status of those will be going forward.

In my estimation, definitely all-new minis. The companies have different manufacturers, use different materials, are packaged in completely different ways... compared to the molds used for plastic production, sculpts are pretty cheap (from what I understand) so the advantages of repurposing the sculpts would be pretty small. But I don't know if we've seen anything official on that.

There was an update today that a new manufacturer, Archon Studio, is taking over the production on the miniatures and will be producing all of them in plastic.  And will be starting with fulfilling rewards for backers and shipping them in batches as they are produced and selling the completed miniatures online.

Odd choice given Archon’s history with the AvP Kickstarter. Feels like an out of the frying pan and into the fire scenario.

Archon/Prodos were always the ones who were making the starfinder stuff as they were the company Soda Pop used to do the casting (and they were using some sort of proprietry tech the called Unicast to make the moulds so they could do fairly complex poses in resin without having to produce a cast that needed assembly)

 

they'd also cast a whole bunch of the starfinder stuff that didn't get shipped to Soda Pop as they hadn't been paid  so these may be sitting there ready to go out (although that stuff might also have been destroyed to avoid paying a big tax bill on assets held so they might have to start again, I wonder if Paizo stepped in to cover that bill?)

 

but generally acting as Archon they've been reasonably good about getting stuff done on time and in decent condition so I'm moderately hopeful this will mean backers end up getting their stuff

 

 

Edit: having now read the actual starfinder update as well as the soda pop one it says

 

Archon Studio will be producing plastic miniatures instead of resin. They will also be starting over with Kickstarter fulfillment; this means that backers who have already received resin miniatures from Ninja Division will receive those minis again from Archon, this time in plastic.

 

so even better for many ('ive got a test sprue of a mini from archon in HIPS, and it's pretty good)

I'm pleased that I've another chance of getting the minis I pledged for.  I'm not sure it'll happen, but we'll see.  Best case, I get starfinder minis.  Worst case, I'm still in the same place as I am now.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers! 
       
      $100 level has 40+ miniatures and FREE USA shipping!
       
      RBJ Game Company has created 18 KS projects, mostly miniatures. Let me know your experience with them if you backed before.
