Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project

Recommended Posts

I was in on the Chibi project they did earlier this year and it was delivered on-time and the quality was good.  This looks like an interesting assortment of figures, including good deals on  bunch of Heartbreaker stuff!

 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/impact-miniatures-presents-the-lost-ks-mini-projec?ref=friends_launched

 

Their synopsis:

 

Not All Minis go to Heaven

 Impact! believes that lost and forgotten or unmade miniatures shouldn't stay lost to the hard drive abyss they've been relegated to.  

Whether they were from discontinued lines, failed or undelivered projects we think they deserve to be resurected, brought into the light, and that's why this project is dedicated that end.   

Today we give you a chance to get minis that are either no longer available, or never made it the light of day.  

Over the past year Impact! has reached out to different Kickstarter Creators whose lines of miniatures failed to fund, were never got delivered or finished, or simply were discontinued after an initial printing run.     

We've licensed or outright purchased everything shown in this project and now all that is left raise the capital for molds and materials and bring these amazing miniatures to backers to you, your friends, and your families and for gamers on tables everywhere!

That... is kinda awesome!

 

Spreading word, thanks!

I backed Impact! for the Kev Adams goblins - and was extremely happy with the models.

 

Plus - the Torn Armor minis will finally see the light of day!

 

The Auld Grump - the question is not whether we will be backing, the question is going to be how deep.

I spotted the Torn Armour figures immediately. They were the first thing I thought of when I read the opening pitch.

Splintered stories. 7 for $14 or 1 for $7... [p]such a difficult choice[/p]

 

Or was there something wrong with spincast. Cannot remember.

I backed his Heartbreaker Armies Kickstarter and was very critical and wary because he used the same company that did the Raging Heroes minis (which to me were totally unacceptable). So he reached out to me and guaranteed money back if I was not satisfied.  I still only backed for a small amount and when the minis arrived I wished I had backed for way more. They were very, very nice (awesome considering the price point). I was missing a tiny part and two hours after telling Impact about that, I had a tracking number for that part. Awesome service, very nice guy and I was pleasantly surprised and very satisfied with the minis. I will back this here - just don't know how much I can afford yet.

As a Torn Armor backer, I appreciate the sentiment. I backed for the $2. Will at least get those Vanara!!! Though the thing I wanted them for ended in 2013... or 14? Don't even remember now.

The Splintered stories minis were Not Torn armor produced but were licensed torn armor minis done by another company. Not sure I need them but the little blind axe red riding hood child is interesting...

Oh. I like impact. They have been courteous, professional, and great to work with. I couldn't remember if the spincast was a problem or not. Ah well. A few of those sets are cheap enough to justify the risk.

Hmmm, I coulda sworn that there used to be a thread on these forums for the Torn Armor Kickstarter - I was going to nudge it with the info from this Kickstarter.

I have the spincast goblins from last year - most assuredly not a problem.

 

I was incredibly impressed with it. Clear detail, near HIP in regards to hardness. It is a plus, not a minus. ::):

 

One mini had a slight miscast - and I could have gotten a replacement, but I turned it down. (Right here on these forums. ::P: ) It was an easy fix.

 

They were extremely courteous, and I will be happy to back this as well.

Don't know - but while I was on YouTube, getting the link, my manager came up behind me going 'That is so cool! :lol:

Odds of a Hwacha showing up in one of my Kings of War armies... 100% ::P:

If they had gotten the renders from Drake II I'd be in trouble.. 

 

I do not know how ... but I JUST found out about Drake and Drake II 3 days ago.  Too late for me to try and get them included in this project.  So we'll see how this project does and use it after I have the backers delivered as a proof of concept and approach them for a sequel project.   Have a few new suggestions since this launched of companies to reach out to that might be interested in similar arrangements.   So yes ... a bullet dodged for you ... (for now ... muh ha ha ha ha!)   ;-)

Wonder how the Hwacha bolts will stand up in resin.

 

So the supports LOOK like it will print fine ... but I plan on printing one over the next couple days just to make sure it prints okay!   I'll let you know the results!

Drake 1 as well. I know I only backed the Drake projects for a few figures each but I never received any of them.

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!

      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

        My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.    The first sheet The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full.                      Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?
       
      seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!
