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.

      BACKERS 1,371 Quick Facts
      Cosmo Communicator is a pocketable clamshell smartphone with a physical backlit keyboard Device features dual colour touchscreen displays and a 24MP camera External 2" touchscreen when device is closed and large 6" touchscreen when device is open - ample space to create on the move.
      Cosmo runs Android 9 (Pie) and also supports Linux OS, such as Sailfish OS and Debian, with a multi-boot option
      Built to be the only device you need to carry, and small enough to fit in your pocket, it’s a true all-in-one replacement for both your mobile phone and your laptop.
       
      Media Coverage

      Slashgear  "This is just the latest and greatest of the machines the company’s made to fill the gaps between smartphone and laptop“
      ZD NET  "Tiny Android, Linux laptop: Cosmo Communicator is also dual-screen phone”
      The Verge “tiny Android laptop …doubles as a phone”
      The Register  "Planet brought the clamshell QWERTY back to the market 17 years after Psion made its last PDA”
      Engadget  “intended to serve as a phone, not just a pocketable productivity machine”
      Liliputing  “… use as a smartphone replacement rather than a smartphone companion”
      Engadget Japan “レトロフューチャーなデザインに最新機能山盛りのGemini PDA後継機”
       
      The Planet Story continues...
      At Planet Computers innovation is at the heart of our company.  Earlier this year,  we successfully delivered our Gemini PDA product to more than 7000 Indiegogo backers who supported our mission to kick start a new mobile computing revolution. 
      Now, we are ready to push our vision even further and you can be part of it.
      In the process of developing our new device we asked our Indiegogo backers, users and followers what features they wanted to have.
      We are excited to announce that we are extending the range of Planet devices with the Cosmo Communicator, our new flagship device.
      The Cosmo Communicator is a modern dual-screen clamshell-based mobile communicator with an integrated keyboard. It is built to be a great pocket computer, a superb mobile phone and an excellent high resolution camera.

      The Cosmo features dual colour displays: it features an external colour touchscreen display for easy phone call control and notifications.  Tucked away inside the beautiful and sleek award winning clamshell design is an ultra-wide 6” colour touchscreen display providing ample space to create on the move with a fully functioning  keyboard integrated into the device. When open, the innovative clamshell also acts as a support of the device, allowing you to type comfortably.

      Cosmo’s newly designed backlit keyboard, allows you to comfortably work at night or in dark spaces such as on long plane journeys without the need of external lighting.
       
       
       
      Disclaimer; I own the Gemini, their previous communicator. 
      Yes, the keyboard works and you can write on it at a decent speed. 
      Unfortunately, on the Gemini, Libreoffice on Debian really lags... like my painting... 
      (Yeah, struggling to catch up.)
      They're promising a faster CPU with more cores on the Cosmo, but so far I don't know how much faster. 
      MUltiboot OS is possible (I have Debian as default, Android as second and Sailfish as the third on my Gemini), but currently it requires a fiddly process where you download OS images, erase the internal storage on the device, then use a PC SW package to flash it with the images. And multibooted devices don't support the usual Android update system.   
      (I expect the process will be improved later)
       
      I'm currently undecided and have about a week left to decide...

      This is a small campaign that features a set of Michael Anderson Models. Only one honest pledge level, that's it.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.
