Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project

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.

      Risks and challenges
      TAG, are a recognized miniature manufacturer of long standing, In the past 18 years once we commit to a Project, we always complete.
      As such we don't envisage any massive issue with this small ( 6 packs) Kickstarter.
      We have the Original models moulded, master-cast, and in pre-production, ready to move to full production, if and when, full Funding takes place.
      We have our own professional Mail Order facilities, and have completed on over a dozen Kickstarters, for TAG, and for many other small scale mini retailers here in the UK.
      As always, I'm sure there are a few ways we could cluck this up, but we promise that we'll work really hard, to make this a success, and if we don't you can give us a 'basting' on social media.

      The Grand Duchy of Reme awaits!
      Starting in 2002 Necromancer Games began populating its Lost Lands campaign setting one adventure at a time. The Grand Duchy of Reme is the region home to classic adventures released by Necromancer Games for D20/3.x and Frog God Games for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry and Fifth Edition. 
      More than 10 adventures have brought life to the Grand Duchy of Reme. The Lost Lands Campaign Sourcebook funded in January is expected to be over 700 pages and all of them are full of information. By necessity each region was described broadly, but there are still a wealth of history, politics and other details to be explored, experience and expanded in the Grand Duchy of Reme. 
      The Grand Duchy of Reme is a system neutral hardcover volume designed to be useful for campaigns independent of system preference. Specific details that affect the characters in the Lost Lands there are System Encounter Books. These companion volumes are softcover (or PDF), that contain reference stats for use with the Region book along with detailed encounter tables for the region.
      Additionally, 3 classic adventures previously unavailable for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition are back. These are offered as either softcover add-ons in backerkit or as free stretch goals in PDF (see reward sidebar).
      Mock-up of Grand Duchy of Reme. Final release will differ slightly The city of Reme itself is ancient, with world-spanning trade — the eternal citadel of the Loreclans, where the ashes of legendary barbarian kings reside. This land lies near the slow collapse of the nearby Empire of Foere, and the rise of Bard’s Gate to the East. The Rhemish watch these events with cold eyes rather than concern, for they live in vast regions that devour invaders. Their land is eternal; their people can be forced back to the plains, but in the plains they can abide for as long as need be. They are — as a people — the ultimate hunters. The fall of Foere is like the fall of an antelope upon the plains; the rise of Bard’s Gate is little more than the stepping-up of jackals before the body. The Grand Duchy of Reme simply waits and watches — for Reme is the dwelling-place of the world’s wolves.
      Reme is a unique fantasy civilization whose structure is determined by the one overriding fact of its geography — the country is a vast, grassland plain. The realm is dominated by the culture of the ancient Loreclans: the urbanized and settled ones, and the nomadic clans of the interior. The Loreclans owe a certain fealty to the Dukes of Reme, who are the final arbiters of the ancient law of the plains, but between the Loreclans and the Dukes there are also the mysterious Pashtars: arbiters, judges, and mediators who roam the plains where their service takes them.
      The city of Reme, of course, is one of the wonders of the world of the Lost Lands, home of powerful spell-casters and perhaps the greatest mercantile and war fleets of the Crescent Sea. It is also, however, steeped in the culture of the vast plains of the interior. It is a place where assumptions are dangerous, for it is no standard fantasy environment — it is a culture that will be entirely new and foreign to your players, a place to truly explore as well as adventure.
