Serpine

War in Christmas Village Sequels

Recommended Posts

Hey Serpine. What do you think of the minis?

I remember that first kickstarter.

I was tempted but the timing was bad so I didn't back.

 

Hmm. That Christmas treant and those elves are great and Mrs.Clause with her crossbow is very nice.

 

And I see they're offering a level that includes minis from their first kickstarter...

 

Yep. I'm in. Unless Serpine has bad things to say.

Hey Serpine. What do you think of the minis?

 

I am very pleased overall with what I got from the first project. The material feels solid and the detail on the figures is reasonably good (they are definitely less sharp then figures from say Zombicide, but close enough that once painted they should fit in fine with other games). The packaging for the core set of 6 figures was great, with a solid colorful box (protected with plastic guards for shipping) and internal molded tray. I had also added on an extra 6 snowmen and a second zombie reindeer. The extra snowmen were individually packaged in little boxes and fine. As to the reindeer, while the one in the box set had been perfect, the second one didn't fair as well: It was bubble wrapped and bent askew on the stand and with antlers sort of squished together. I think some other backers mentioned in the project comments a similar packaging issue on that figure. That being said, I am fairly confident I can fix the problem with some hot water based bending, so it is a small flaw in an otherwise fine delivery.

Serpine, thank you for the review. Once we get our shipment, as it appears to be in air freight limbo, we'll send you some replacements.

 

Also, what's your opinion on the d6 direction/scatter die in the box?

I don't need a replacement. I've dealt with *way* worse levels of plastic bendage before. :)

 

As far as the die, I never turn away something to throw in my dice bag but overall I don't anticipate ever using it. I mean, it is just a generic white scatter die without any holiday elements, of which I already have plenty I don't use already (from various prior editions of 40k). If the die indicated winter weather, had three sides each of "naughty/nice", had random holiday monsters on each side, pictured different number of presents or zombie carolers, or even just had numbers 1-5 with a wreath for the 6, then it might have been more interesting (at least as a conversation piece).

The kickstarter has completed its  funding and reached about a half dozen stretch goals during its run.

 

My money had already been collected do now the wait for fulfilment begins.

 

Looking forward to receiving these as I don't have anything quite like them.

Shipping through Amazon appears to be a complicated process that the projects creator is still trying to work through. Amazon wants each UPC to be sent to different Amazon fulfilment centres.

I’m starting to get concerned that this is getting more complicated than it should need to.

 

Most US orders have been sent out and product is now available to order at retail through Amazon.

 

As a Canadian backer I’m still waiting for international orders to be sent out.

As per Canada posts promise, these arrived at my home today.

 

Minis look good. I like the boxes. Really I’m just glad I finally have them.

Only 8 months late which isn’t a huge delay for kickstarter, but it was all the uncertainty over the shipping method and following confusion that I admit had me on edge about receiving these.

 

I know there’s a follow up kickstarter coming up, but as I got these mostly for their novelty factor, I don’t know that I want to go down this particular rabbit hole any further.

 

Nice minis though for anyone wanting to increase their Christmas or holiday themed collection.

      From the team behind hit games Hellboy: The Board Game and Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf’s Kings Quest, League of Infamy is an occasionally co-operative dungeon crawler for up to 5 players, where it pays to commit dastardly deeds and partake in foul thievery – often against your own party.
      Join a rogue’s gallery of misfits, ne’er-do-wells and miscreants on a disgraceful mission to kidnap cute little baby Drakons, steal their eggs and viciously wipe out any irritating, goody-goody Elves that try to stop your nefarious schemes.
      But it’s not just the Elves you’ll need to keep a wary eye on. Your fellow (mis)adventurers are just as likely to betray you and steal your loot, shove you into harm’s way or just leave you in a dungeon full of unbeatable foes. As they like to say in the League of Infamy – ‘keep your enemies close but keep your friends at knifepoint’. 
       
      In the limited edition No Half Measures expansion, you must investigate reports of an ancient form of long-forgotten magic: gastromancy! Deal with halflings as strong as an ogre or tricky traps with toxic poisons. It's not all bad though, because you might come across a tasty pie or two to loot!
      In the Kickstarter Exclusive Siren's Wrath expansion, the League is furious that the Trident Realm is messing with one of its most important trade routes... which absolutely won't do! You're sent in to raid the Trident Realm keep and gather as many goods as you can. However, this will be your hardest mission yet, as the Keep Master takes advantage of the aquatic landscape to boost their Defenders.

      About
      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.

      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99
