About

THE PROJECT

Over the past decade I have directly assisted multiple miniature companies achieve success with their projects. I have both broad and lengthy experience in the miniature industry. My previous work has covered all aspects of miniature production from design to manufacturing, and ranges from working with metal to resin and also plastic materials. Now I am creating my own line of high quality figures and am asking for your help to meet my goals. This project will begin with 10 figures and will expand to add more figures, add-ons, and freebies. If a picture is worth a thousand words than these images should speak for themselves.

Thank you for your interest and support!

I kind of like some of these .. but I'm a bit confused by the pledge levels .. $60 gets you all 10 core minis plus all the stretches.  Then, $70 gets you the STL files, but not actual minis.. and $75 gets you one 75mm mini..

They don't appear to be cumulative like other KS's I've backed..

Yeah, that confused me as well...I don't know why they didn't do cumulative up to 10 core minis, then have the 75mm and 55mm minis after that point. It isn't clear how to get everything in the campaign.

 

Additionally, re-reading the page, the creator mentions participating in crowdfunding projects in the past, but does not cite which ones, and this is marked as his first kickstarter. His idea of the delays possible don't account for a couple of different ones I've seen, such as legal issues... And finally, he doesn't say how he plans to avoid being slowed down by them. 

 

All matters considered, I'm personally unlikely to end up backing in the end, unless updates end up being clearer than the initial posting (even if a couple of miniatures are really pretty)

Clarification:

I also am unlikely to back it.. I had some of the same concerns (and I'm supposed to be paying down debt instead of backing more mini kickstarters)

 

Also, Kickstarter says Heresy Lab is out of Chicago IL but their webstore prices are in euros..

I think he means he backed other projects when he states 'participated'... 

 

the webstore also allows you to select US$ and GBP£

 

now, what i don't like is that Heresylab's KS profile states Milwaukee, Wi... nd that he's using a 'privacy' registrar for his domain, and that his site is hosted in Italy, possibly somewhere in Toscana?

There's also no 'about us' page on their website explaining who they are, where they're base, VAT registration, phone numbers or anything you'd reasonably expect to find. 

 

Of course, using a privacy registrar does cut down on the spam... 

nd the Italian server job may be because it was cheaper than a Us server. the fact it defaults to Euro can be just a sucky store front-end with default settings...

 

Most probably, they're just unprofessional, not a scam, though.

 

They have a good number of minis I wouldn't mind owning, but for now I'm staying out of it.

Unless specific examples are given of his design/sculpting/manufacturing experience in the miniatures industry, I wouldn't even consider backing.

 

I've been burned before.

I think it is an unfortunate choice of name, since it invites confusion with Heresy Miniatures.

Definitely some interesting designs, but wow, those are quite a few red flags from various people in short order.. 

 

... Not to mention the pricing...  Or that adding on a larger model is one that's just 3D printed, not sculpted and cast...

I think I'll see if they survive the kickstarter and then pick up the ones that I want via their webstore.

The sculpted eyelashes look weird to me and would severely limit any attempt to paint these women in anything but heavy makeup. After looking at a bunch of the figures I started to see the eyelashes like that embarrassing old fake epicanthic fold stage makeup they used to put on white actors playing Asians.

 

I like being able to paint the expression I want on my figures’ faces, and that includes whether they are wearing false eyelashes or indeed any makeup at all.

 

Also, what’s up with Col Gurten Lena? She’s fat, and her shirt has tension folds at the buttons, but it curves right around her breasts in a way that shirts exactly don’t but that makes her look essentially naked.

That confused me too. I thought, “Man, that doesn’t look like his style ...”

It's not a shirt, it's bodypaint...

      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.

      The Project

      This is our 12th Chibi miniatures project. Over the last 5 years at conventions, our Pony Chibi from our previous KickStarters are always the most popular figures and we love hearing the happy sounds of people seeing them for the first time in the display cases. Now as technology has greatly changed we wanted to add new ponies and accessories to the model line and now offer them to everyone as digital models to print at home for yourself!

      The Miniatures
      The digital models will be sent as STL one piece models within a month of the project ending. Models will be sent without supports (we will have a stretch goal to buy software and add supports to all the files).

      Due to Stretch Goal #1, the ponies will also be provided with STLs for the different components of the models, so you can use a free product like Meshmixer to mix and match parts from the different models to create your own ponies.

      In addition, if you want the models will be available as physical one piece 3-D prints as well in super high quality resin prints. Prints will be grey and will come with bases (as most are not free standing models)

      The miniatures will come in two sizes. The base pony figures will normally be 30mm tall to the top of the figurine's head and a couple large pony figures will normally be 50mm tall to the top of the figurine's head (the Nightmare and Kirin are large ponies)

      This time they have 150 EB slots (35$ instead of 40$) for minis + terrain. They also added a 220$ level that gets you all the add-ons (but not everything from their previous campaigns).
