I just now realized how much I need a giant exclamation point miniature.  Because reasons.

 

Edit: in the comments, it looks like they are running demos in my area this weekend.  I can stop by and report back how it looks/plays.

I'd be more impressed if the 'Kidlovestigergames' website wasn't just a parked GoDaddy domain, and all their other dealings seems to be on FarceBook.

(The parked page seems to have had the title 'The World of Wayword' )

Also, no pledge level for just the minis.

 

As far as earlier Kickstarters, it might be prudent to study Beast Masters, the Dice Placement Game(on KS), Legends of the Mist(another KS) and Hunters: Enter the Darkness(yet another KS).  These are all by Chris Peach, but as the verified ID behind both that name and the Kid Loves Tiger Games name is Erica Wiebusch, I think they need to be considered, also. (Nope, haven't studied those older KS Projects, but the Hunters game looks as if it has some neato minis... )

I got some pictures of the prototype game at Con of the North yesterday:

I think the models would benefit from basing on something heavier like a metal washer, as small table bumps can topple trees / fire hydrants / lamps.

 

For the game itself, it has all the standard superhero stuff I'd expect.  Running up the side of a building and pushing another dude off the top, throwing trucks at people, big dude bowling over the top of several smaller dudes, etc.  And some silly stuff like getting soda from a vending machine to get caffeined up for extra actions.

 

The game moves really quickly. Characters get 4-6 actions per turn all of which can be used for movement or attacks, so you can all out run 15+ squares in a turn, or unleash a multiple attacks, or line up knockback chain reactions, etc, all pretty easily.  Special powers unique to each character are listed on their card.  Tokens for damage or status effects can go on the character card to keep the play area less cluttered.

Since I liked the look of the game and wanted to spread the word I also started a thread on my other favourite forum Dakkadakka, and some information has come up over there that raised possible concerns over this project

 

i'd urge anybody interested in backing read over the thread here https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/750823.page and make up their own minds if it's a risk they want to take

 

(i'm sure this is a real game they want to make and that it would be fun, i'm less sure the driving force behind it is who it initially appeared to be and therefore the risks might be higher than I first thought)

      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
       
      The Gnome Guard
       
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
       
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
       
       
      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
       
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
