Congratulations, Confrontation backers.

 

You won't get your mini's, but you'll be happy to hear you'll be paying Stellar's legal bills. Oh, and the salary of the SD folks.

<<<MOD EDIT>>> Kickstarter is now Live:       Legends of Signum is a 2 players fantasy world wargame, where players will face off against ea

On one hand, they've got some things going for them:   - Professional looking kickstarter - Mini sculpts are largely finished - Fairly prompt and continuous communication - Compa

Good for you guys. Mine arrived a while back. A few missing components (one sphinx had 2 front left legs & no front right leg, one miniature didn't have  ahead etc). I got in touch and the company

I'm thinking it might be time to do a bit of sympathy shopping over on the Cadwallon site...

You know, I actually thought the same thing. I'm more inclined now to increase my pledge in the Kickstarter rather than lowering it because of this if it turns out that the SD-team is behind this.

 

According to the creators of the KS they were not involved with Cadwallon other than to sell their miniatures through the Cadwallon web store.

 

The first day of the KS there were a couple people giving the creators a hard time about selling through Cadwallon.  Saying that Cadwallon were recasting Confrontation sculpts without permission. But the creators insisted that they had nothing to do with Cadwallon and knew nothing of their business practices. 

 

But if the creators of the KS turn out to be Cadwallon then I would be hesitant to shop over there as they said that Cadwallon was not associated with LoS or the KS.  Unless I'm miss understanding you and you're saying Cadwallon is the real victim from LoW and SD. 

 

Can concept art be considered IP?  Just seems like creators probably have hundreds of drawings for concept when creating a game. Seems like most miniatures probably could be considered violating IP on concept art. 

 

Still hope LoS is legit and this comes back!  Doesn't look like too many have bailed yet... Knock on wood!

I'm no lawyer, but if somebody paid an artist to make concept images for them and the artist exchanged that art for money, then...yes? The problem would be proving that the new minis where based on it. Hard to prove unless they have the original art and can connect the mini artist to it.

This claim was apparently placed on the 9th so while the timing might look suspicious it could be coincidental.

 

That sounds even more fishy. When I first read about this and the possibility it was the Confrontation people, I thought they would be better served if they did this before their project ended, hoping people would flee this ks for theirs. But since it happened after theirs ended, they don't stand to gain as much. With the news the claim was placed a week before theirs ended, this seems like a much more likely scenario.

 

I hope this whole thing gets sorted out without too much fuss. This could end up killing this kickstarter and company even if they have done nothing wrong. Lost backers, potential legal battles, a small company might not survive.

Soooooo glad to see this back!  Can't wait for the official update from them, and what plans are such are. 

 

Such a pity that $20k or so in people have dropped...  But should come back readily ^_^

It's actually impressive that they didn't lose more. They've got a lot of faithful backers (myself included).

I'm curious how many backers even noticed. I sometimes back a ks, and unless it's active here, only really notice when there is an update. I do check backed projects every couple weeks around payday just to make sure there are no forgotten surprises, but otherwise depend heavily on project updates. This was a little different for me in that I joined the FB page for the early bird option though.

 

They have shared some pics on the fb page while this thread was locked.

Nice looking archer wip:

And a painted version of the crouching wulfen, I think she looks even better painted, I thought she looked a bit misshapen in the original render:

And a mysterious* WIP:

*Kidding, it's totally another wulfen.

I stuck around too, mostly because the game and minis are already finished to a large portion and because they did a good job communicating during the freeze over Facebook. I'm glad the extended the time since I may have backed another project or too in the meantime xD

      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.
