Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project

Rhino in a larger size could potentially be neat...  Or is he already somewhat large in all dimensions at it's current incarnation at 52mm tall?  Figure I'd ask, since he's $14 more than the $18 minotaur, but only 7mm taller, which indicates to me that he's a lot bulkier in other dimensions...?

 

@WhiteWulfe Pretty large in all dimensions.   I took this image which I think might help you with this question.   The Rhino is pictured with both the Minotaurs from a top down view.   The square are 10mm.   I can make the Rhino bigger but because of his bulky body mixed with that rock and the club ... his price is going to go up very quickly as he gets a few mm taller.

Out of sheer curiosity, how tall are the various minis in the Necromancer pack?  Specifically the one that kind of looks like a zombie puppy hybrid thing of doom? ^_^;;;

 

EDIT: Second rown, second one in the Necromancer pack

 

@WhiteWulfe  updated graphic to answer this question.

Many thanks for the quick reply!  Had a feeling that rhino would get pricy quick if increased in size.  Seems like he'd be a size hubby might like, he tends to prefer painting things that are at least 2" tall, keeps mentioning something about "too many fiddly details I can't see" or something like that.

 

Kind of scary that the rhino's shoulders are almost as wide as both Minotaurs, or at least a minotaur and a half!

 

No idea why, but I keep thinking that that 38mm minion in the necromancer pack would look downright epic at 54mm...

I’m in the exact same position myself, down to almost the exact dollar amount.

Looking it up, it was actually 285 for me. I just tend to round over time. :)

@WhiteWulfe I am willing to resize any miniatures in the 3-D print range as a special request.   I will just need extra time to set it up and quote it and it would be a transaction outside the KS project (so that I don't mess up the mass printing of the models at the original manufacturer height).  At 54mm that model would be $28 ... I could use MeshMixer to cut off the base if you wanted to drop that a bit.   Just wanted to let you know.

The question is ... do I spend all the time to set it up ... any takers you think at $135?

I imagine the gnome pilots are still tiny even at a 6"+ size, and the legs were never really convincing (especially those little hook feet) for handling such a construct while on the move. Compared to the rhino or elephant I just can't see this being worthwhile even at its *original* kickstarter pricepoint.

I have to be honest that was my thought ... and the 3 Gnome Pilots were very uninspiring which is why I did not convert them for individual sale.

Highly tempted to consider this myself... That dog thing would be great to represent a particular deity in my home D&D games, so the bigger the better.

Ooooooh, that is very much so something I will have to consider then, because both hubby and I rather do like that one and think it would look lovely a tad larger ^_^;;;  As to removal of the base, I have to say nah, I kind of like what it feels like it adds into the whole thing...  It's actually one of the first undead that REALLY catch my eye.

A small part of me is curious as to what it would be like dimensions-wise at 72mm tall, but I suspect that would probably be over $50 USD by that point...  I also suspect you'd get some rather colourful language dropped by your players if it came out as something possibly hostile!

@WhiteWulfe If you'd really like that quote for real-sy ... just let me know and I'll work it up for you.   But yes I do expect you'll be getting close to $50 USD.

Doesn't really have anything to do with the kickstarter, but I would like everyone to know that I'm disappointed in all of you for not pointing out to me that Impact has a set of chibi xenomorphs. Fortunately I discovered this on my own and ordered them, so order has returned to the universe.

 

On topic - I think this is a really neat project and good on you for trying to make things better for people that got stiffed by another company!

The Alien Queen was just a painting example.   Those figures are already on my website.

 

Apologies @Darsc Zacal did not know I could not link ... lesson learned!   Sorry for that

      Hi all,
       
      Andrew May launched the second season of Black Crab Miniatures. I backed the first season, and was pretty happy with it. They’re resin minis with very creepy looks, I thought you guys might be interested. :)
       
      The campaign is very short, there’s already less than 24 hours to back it.

      About
      Welcome to the most thrilling raid in the miniature history! Choose your side, fight until the end and get greatly rewarded for your engagement!
      This campaign features 2 lines of miniatures!
      "Temple of Serpent" is a brand new collection inspired by the lost civilizations of Amazonia and Mesoamerica. It envisions an utopian enclave hidden so deep in the wilderness that it is considered forbidden territory. The tribe is focused on preserving an ancient magic with the help of gods and dinosaurs. Be the first to explore it!
      "Bloodsail Island" is an established line of ruthless ogre pirates. Upon discovering the Temple of Serpent they have became overpowered by the desire to plunder its treasures. They are going to need every hand on deck for this one, so the line is getting a massive extension! 
      Our products are in 28mm scale and come with square bases. Check pictures at the bottom of our campaign to see the size comparisons. All miniatures are made from high-quality resin that ensures highest details, durability and flexibility. 
      Based on our Kickstarter experience and community feedback we have came up with the simplest Reward System to date. You can choose one of the following pledges.
      Deckhand Pledge is for you if you are not sure what you need but you want to be a part of the campaing. It will give you the access to the Pledge Manager where you will be able to spend your additional funds on any miniatures you want. 
        Basic Pledge is for you if you do not want to pick a side. It is really simple. You plede $99 and you receive $99 to spend on addons. But on top of that you will choose and receive either a set of Serpent Freebies OR Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with those freebies packs.
      In Captain Pledge you become the commander of ogre pirate army! Pledge $199 to get Captain Krabor in special offer for $40. The rest of your funds ($159) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
      In Serpent Pledge you become the deity of the Temple! Pledge $199 to get High Priestess on Pterossus in a special offer for $50. The rest of your funds ($149) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Serpent Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
        After the campaign ends, we will open a Pledge Manager. You will receive an e-mail address with a link to it. When you log in, you will be able to pick your rewards and spend your funds on any chosen add-ons from the campaign. You will also be able to transfer additional funds via PayPal. After finishing an order a shipping cost will be charged, based on your address and the package weight. 
      All additional funds you pledge over your reward price you will be able to spend on add-ons.
      When our Campaign is live we will post a link to an online calculator that will help you in figuring out how much you need to pledge to get all the miniatures you want. 
      Example 1: You want just 3 units of Raptor Riders that are $39 each. In order to get them you need to choose Basic Pledge and pledge $117 (3x $39) for it. This will allow you to spend that $117 in Pledge Manager and choose 3x Raptor Riders. On top of that you will be able to choose a set of freebies (either Serpent of Ogre one).
      Example 2: You want Captain Krabor, 3 units of Sharkman that are $39 each and 5 units of goblins that are $12 each. In order to get those you should choose Captain Pledge and pledge $217 for it. In this pledge Captain Krabor is in a better price and you will also get $159 for other addons. You need 3x $39 + 5x $12 = $177 so you need to pledge $18 on top of the pledge price to cover everything. 
      In case of any mistakes, there will be no problem with make a correction. You will always be able to add funds in the Pledge Manager via PayPal, so if you do not pledge enough through Kickstarter, you will still be able to get everything you need after the campaign ends.

        Risks and challenges
      Risks and challenges that are a part of every campaign with tabletop collectible miniatures are usually:
      - Delay in delivery
      - Production difficulties
      - Digital models conversion and creation of production molds
      - Communication with the Backers that are postponing filling out the Pledge Manager that creates a delay for the start of targeted production
      We have a lot of experience as for the miniatures production and delivery and we will do our best to keep risk levels at minimum and deliver the best miniatures that you have always wanted.

      Enter a Realm of Unending Darkness
      A ghastly, green fire flickers in a long-forgotten tomb. From within comes a thunderous crash as the lid of a stone sarcophagus is contemptuously flung aside, followed by the clank of armor and the dread sound of footsteps.

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

      Quite a long time ago, this project was on KS for the first time. The creator had a lot to learn about material, options on sprues, poses etc ... so the first KS lost momentum. He sure took his time and now he's back and it looks to me (at first glance) that he definitely did his homework. It might me a niche "army", but I'm definitely interested in a pack of those fauns.
      If some of the stretch goals get unlocked, there is some awesome stuff coming.
