Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

Recommended Posts

They're very good dwarves, and I like the variety in them. If I was running a dwarf based campaign soon I'd snag some, but my world is dominantly humans, halflings, and some elves. So.... I think I can pass. My weaknesses are elsewhere.

Maybe when ibsee some greens.  These seem a little to light and hunched rather than stocky to me, but I have liked a lot if the previous efforts and a few more female dwarves would be good.  We will see

It’s always puzzled me why Mike doesn’t have at least some greens ready to show off whenever he launches a kickstarter.

 

Speaking of. In the comments section Stonehaven had posted 3 days ago that they were planning to post some pics of greens that day.

So far that hasn’t happened.

I've never tried Stonehaven miniatures before. How do they compare in quality to Reaper? The price is good, assuming at least of mid to upper bones quality. If they are closer to Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures humanoids, I'd probably begrudgingly paint 2 of them, then throw the rest out in frustration.

They're all metal except the plastic based and resin monsters.

 

The detail is sharp, but they're more stylized than hyper realistic.

 

Every sculpt is dead on to the concept art.

 

The only issue I have sometimes is that the designs are a bit flat for casting purposes.

What Lidless said.

 

If you enjoy painting Reaper minis then I’d say you should enjoy painting these.

Man, I'm always the last to know about these....

 

As far as if Stonehaven are fun to paint, I'll give an enthusiastic yes!  I think I've painted maybe six so far and they have all been a joy.

 

Now I just need some spare cash..

Oh man, that makes it hard to resist. On one hand, I just finished 3 Borin Ironbrows today and feel like the last thing I need is more dwarves. On the other hand... more minis never hurt anyone, right?

 

Oh well, might as well just back it for the full set. Anything less is just financially irresponsible.

Like others, the first Stonehaven Dwarf Kickstarter was my first ever. I also backed their Elf, Gnome, and Half-Orc Kickstarters. Lack of funds and/or overlap with Bones Kickstarters prevented me from getting in on later ones. I loved the dwarves I got the first time around, and the quality only got better. Mr. Evans skill has noticeably improved over the years.

 

I may have to jump in on a completionist level for this one.

      A new kickstarter project from Kev White:
       
       https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hasslefriesian/artemis-20/description
       
      Don't think I shall be backing this myself as I don't do much that is bigger than 54mm.
       
      This seems to be happening off Kev's own bat and I don't think Hasslefree is involved. Whether that is a good thing or not I leave to your own judgement.

      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)
