A couple of folk over on Dakka are wondering about the price of the lizaradmen & sun god, are they larger than they appear or is it a case of them being in lots of bits taking up a lot of mould space?

 

@Orlando_the_Technicoloured ... the Sun God is 70mm tall.   The Lizardmen are only 35mm tall but have a lot of bits that are taking up the mold space.

 

I even agree that the Lizardmen are not a good deal ... they were part of the acquisition so I put them in the KS.

I did not need to see that ... ;)

Neither does @Glitterwolf because it totally wouldn't fit in with said wolf of sparklyness' Lost World army.  Not one but.  Nope, not at all. (purple for emphasis on the silly, because Glitterwolf totally could make use of such I figure...)

 

And for myself, hubby is contemplating a lizardman army of some description, which means I'm going to have to learn how to paint scales, aren't I...

I’m unlikely to back this one (too many unpainted fantasy minis as it is), but I will say that I have backed multiple Impact Kickstarters before and also had over a dozen dealing with Tom at Impact in the past and he has been nothing but outstanding every single time.

 

An awesome guy who does a lot of great things for the community. I could not recommend him more highly.

That's a very cool lizard/dinoman indeed!

This might sound strange, but for now I'm good.

I just backed a huge Aztec style Lizardman Army ( Quetzpal-Lost Kingdoms) and I still have to paint a few 20 reptilians.

So I will paint more first before I buy more ( he said hopefully while he just ordered the Reaper Komodo Dragon two days ago)..

 

If you start painting lizzies, use pics of the real ones for inspiration how to paint scales.

And use pics of birds as well.

The colours of reptiles and tropical birds are so awesome, you can find a lot of inspiration online.

And maybe you can use my thread a little as well.

I was a Torn Armor backer as well and I am excited to see some of these reach the light of day.  I backed for something like $200, the core with the 3 behemoths. So we will see what happens.

I guess there's no reason not to make them available for people who really want them.  

 

Can you name some of the projects these minis come from?  I feel like I recognize more than a couple of them, but I don't remember all the projects.

 

 

 

Oh- and i'll add that I've handled and painted the results of Impact!'s 3D printing, and they're WAY better than the price would suggest.  I expected to have to do a lot of prep work to fix the grooves I'm used to seeing in 3D prints, but I didn't have to do ANY of that (and the mini had a lot of smooth surfaces- it would have shown if they were flawed). 

 

It was more like painting a cast of the mini than a 3D print.

So, if anyone is on the fence because they think that Tom's 3D printing might not be up to snuff, go right ahead and get on board, because his prints are terrific.

@odinsgrandson - look at the main page of the KS - very much at the end. There are a number of companies and Kickstarters mentioned where the minis come from.

 

WHERE DID THESE MINIATURES COME FROM?

  • Miniatures from the discontinued board game Wizard's Academy
  • Miniatures from the closed company ZN Games
  • Miniatures from the discontinued line for Breachworld by Jason Richards
  • Miniatures from the discontinued line by Hivetrygon Minis
  • Miniatures from closed company Soul Jar - these were from the Torn World KickStarter which was originally rescued by Pacesetter Games which was a noble and awesome act.
  • Miniatures from the failed to fund KickStarter Dawn of the Archmage
  • Miniatures from the failed KickStarter Torn Armor

I backed the failed to fund Dawn of the Archmage project. The creator posted that he has no plans to try and redo it (it failed to fund twice), but he is planning on releasing a print and play version at some point.

Oooh.  Well, if he does that, we'll have the minis for it.  It would be nice for the whole project to see gaming tables.

      A bit late, as there's only 21Hours left at this time, but...
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lumir-k-the-one-and-only-cooking-oil-led-lamp/x/10803452#/
       
      I'm at the 'Get 1 Give 1' which means I'm getting one of these weird lamps, and a family without electricity in Cambodia also gets one. 
       
      -----------
       
      Overview Lumir K is a cooking oil powered LED lamp that converts the thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity. ▶Make an Impact- Bring the light to the people living without electricity. ▶1 Lumir K = 100X candlelight ▶Easy to Use-Just placing the lamp over the lit wick will turn the LED light on. ▶Accessible-Olive or canola oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. ▶Instant light-No need of charging or battery ▶Efficient-Consumes the only 5ml of oil for 1 hour of light ▶10-year life span
       
      Small heat energy turns
      the 100 times brighter LED light.

      Less Consumption, Less Emission
       
       

       

      Lumir K converts the small thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity and it turns on the bright LEDs. This amazing lantern will light up where you want and it make an impact on the world where it is needed.
       
       

       
       

       
      From now,
      Cooking oil turns to the power source of your lamp.

       
      Lumir K uses cooking oil to generate electricity.
      Cooking oil is one of the cheapest and familiar ingredients as it is easily found from grocery stores in the city to tiny kiosk shops in a remote area.
      Olive, canola and sunflower oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. Without any batteries or external power supply, only with tiny flame which is as big as candle, Lumir K gives you an instant and 100 times brighter light.
       

       

       
      Lumir K is an easy, accessible and sustainable solution for those who need a light.
      With a goal to light up the world, team Lumir had a successful campaign with our first product, candle powered LED lamp.
      We promised to keep developing solutions for families in the off-grid area and finally came back with Lumir K by improving efficiency and changing fuel as cooking oil.
      Lumir K achieved CE and its core technology is patented. We are happy to share this achievement with you, and we need your support to take one step further.
      Lumir K will brighten up anywhere light needs to touch.
       


      Lumir has been resolving the light shortages and delivering the beauty of light.
      Our journey started from a small but momentous experience during the trip to India, learning that there are so many places around the world suffering from unreliable or no electricity supply.
      Among 1.2 billion who do not have access to electricity, most of them rely on candles or kerosene lamps which is dark, harmful for health and the environment. Using kerosene lamps indoors has the same effect as smoking 40 cigarettes and the cost for fuel takes up even 30% of the household's income.
       
      Instead of unreliable supply,
      Isn't it be possible to maximize the light from a candle or a kerosene lamp?
       
      That was the question that led us to invent Lumir K as an effective solution for the light shortage issue.
      In the case of kerosene lamps, only 10% of the energy from the fuel is used for illuminating because the flame itself is the direct light, and the rest, 90% of the energy is just scattered in the air as a heat. 
      However, Lumir K harnesses the wasted 90% of the heat energy to turn on the LEDs, so it is pretty economical as it provides a brighter light only with a small flame.
       
      LUMIR K can be used anytime and anywhere while solar lamps has a big weather constraints in many areas like Indonesia where the average rainy days are more than 160 days. 
       
      After our first crowdfunding campaign, we became a partner of KOICA, Korean International Cooperation Agency, and Lumir K was piloted in Indonesia.
      Lumir K provides 4.1 times brighter light than kerosene lamps, while its economic effect was also achieved with 80% lower fuel consumption compared to kerosene lamps. It also reduces carbon emissions by about 90%.

      Didn't see a post on this one and it is in the final 24 hours. It is from Mythic Games, the originators of Mythic Battles series. This one is a bit less serious and more along the lines of Arcadia Quest/MOBA comic-fantasy theme.
       
      It is a skirmish game for 2 or 4 players. Miniatures are on 45mm bases and fall in the 32-45mm range. It appears that the bases are pre-sculpted. If MB:P is any indicator, the quality of the miniatures should be pretty solid as well.

      Dwarven Forge is doing a smaller kickstarter in June.  It's a pseudo sequel to their Caverns Deep line (which was their 6th kickstarter, aka KS6), KS6.66 - Hellscape.  This is different than their 7th Kickstarter - Wildlands which will be outdoor themed (trees and such) in Jan 2020.
       
      Many of you have been asking for smaller Kickstarters that are more digestible. So we're going to try it! We are going to launch a small, two-week KS with a limited scope. Best of all, it's happening very soon -- KS6.66 - Hellscape will launch in late June 2019! As the name implies, the lava-based project will focus on the fiery wasteland the fiends of the Nine Hells inhabit. The collection will consist of a small number of new sculpts as well as some repaints of some Caverns Deep pieces.
       

       

       
      EDIT:  It start on June 16th (Father's Day in the US)

      About
       [...] In the tragic accident of 2006, the world lost the renowned Professor De Carli, but we did not lose his spiritual heritage. While he gained his fame for being the first to theorise the so-called ‘Scale of happiness’, in the final years of his life, the holistic researcher utterly devoted his body and soul to the study of an equally mysterious phenomenon: ‘The swamp of the second-born'. It is widely known, at least in the creative sphere, that successfully duplicating a piece of work is a very difficult undertaking. Many promising artists, even those who experienced outstanding success with their first piece of work, have found themselves mired with Artax in this deadly swamp. I know, I know, that’s a low blow. However, or so the never-too-late Prof. De Carli expressed in front of the three hundred thousand students of the University of Turin during his celebrated lectio magistralis of 2004, "No road will be inaccessible to those who travel it animated by the fire of passion. No road except Corso Grosseto that is."
      Welcome to this new, crazy campaign by Durgin Paint Forge, mighty backers! We have worked hard over the past years to create a new range of miniatures capable of making your little heart race at a million beats a minute. At long last, here we are, eager to throw ourselves into this new adventure like a lemming on the edge of a cliff! With ‘The Second Government of Inneath’, we want to repeat the wonderful experience of two years ago and, if possible, raise the bar a few notches. Just as with ‘The Iron Crows’, our goal has been to make you fall in love with us and our creations, "The Second Government of Inneath" was born to remind you that, despite the passing of years, in our eyes, you are still as beautiful as the day we met.
      We have a single purpose: to create miniatures that are worthy of great heights. Or, at least metaphorically; in as much as 32mm miniatures can be. If you took part in our previous Kickstarter (the blessing of Grundur be upon you!), you already have proof of how uncompromising we are when it comes to the quality of our products. On the other hand, if this is your first experience with us then you are even luckier! Now we have two more years of creative and technical experience that give us a firm belief that this Kickstarter will be even better than the last.
       PLAY 3d prints! NDT: we strongly believe that humans have different heights. Or at least, this is what I learned when I met a Latvian guy and I seemed like his backpack, comparing our heights. For this reason, our human characters represent individuals with different heights and their miniatures reflect this concept, going approximately from 34 to 41mm size.
      Have I failed to dismiss your doubts? Feel free to write to us at info@durginpaintforge.com if you have any more questions!
      The rules of the game are simple: 20 characters, 5 bundles and a large assortment of stretch goals ready to break into your bundle like a commando behind enemy lines. You will be able to support this project and contribute to the success of this range in three ways: you can select the miniatures you like individually, pounce on the convenient bundles for some bulk savings or, if you have an impassioned heart but only a few doubloons in your pocket, we would greatly appreciate if you could share this project far and wide, to wherever you think people might be interested.
      If you are only interested in some specific miniatures from the range, take a look at the table below, crack out a sheet of paper, a pencil and some rounded-tip scissors. Note down the miniatures that interest you and add up their individual prices. Their total will be the amount that you will need to insert as your pledge amount. After the campaign is completed, we will send out a pledge manager in which you will be able to sort out the details of which miniatures you want. 
        We have 5 bundles available: Bluecoat Bundle, Redcoat Bundle, Arcane Bundle, Mighty Mega Box and Friendly Mega Box! If you are interested in buying a bundle, simply select the appropriate pledge and enjoy the anticipation of that little box of goodies being dropped on your doorstep (if you still have those scissors ready, you could cut out some nice origami to pass the time!).
       "What if I want to buy more bundles? Or add more miniatures to my bundle?"
      Easier than shooting an Elf in a barrel (don't feel bad, he deserves it). Just select the reward you are interested in, then modify your pledge by adding the value of the miniatures or any other bundles you want to add; voila!
