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.

 

This is fairly accurate. One or two of the sculpts differ from the concept art but apart from that the Lidless Eye pretty much nailed it.

If I bought in at the dwarven duet would I then be able to add any dwarf for $5 to then pick and choose any I want?

This is a good question, I'd kind of like to know if there's any way to pick-n-choose too.

...and apparently, my reading comprehension skills are lacking this morning.

 

Thank you for pointing that out!:winkthumbs:

I love the Dwarfette with flail.  There's a great sense of motion on her.

Wow, that's a massive step up sculpt-wise from the first lot of Dwarfs all those years ago (and those ones were still pretty dang good IMO).

 

I might have to look at backing this now, even though I do still have some of those first Dwarfs to paint.

 

Edit:- And backed.

 

It's been ages since I've given a Stonehaven campaign more than a quick look over, and there's a load of minis I like in this one (I'm already looking forward to painting the Mexican Bandit Dwarf!).

Sadly this uses up my Christmas mini money (Sorry Reaper).

Her and the two in the upper left strike me as the most interesting of the five.

I really like Stonehaven’s take on bards. Remember the drum-playing half-orc bard?

It really is. I'm very tempted now.

 

Also 72moonglum thankyou. Your forum avatar is the very first miniature I ever painted back when I was 8 or 9 years old. Obviously mine didn't turn out so well but seeing it once again brings back many fond memories.

More greens.

Not sure how I feel about these.

Upper left looks a lot like a traditional garden gnome. 

Upper right. Bow placement is just...odd. Feel the urge to modify it to the handle of a power jackhammer.

Mid left. Looks okay. Nothing special.

Mid right. My favourite of the five.

Bottom. If you can’t say anything nice...

I don't think they're too bad. Top-left is silly and not my taste, but I know some people (like my wife) would like it. Top-right is a weird bow placement, but I can see it easily justified as "my bow is secondary" character, like a more pacifist nature-oriented ranger.

 

I'm not in love with them. But they're alright.

It’s interesting to see how much has changed since Stonehaven first Dwarf kickstarter and this one.

 

Obviously this has a lot fewer backers but there’s also very little commenting going on in the kickstarter comments section.

The first KS had a very lively and interactive comments area that gave Mike a lot of feedback and ideas which he listened to and acted upon which I think helped him produce more interesting minis.

      Some NSFW minis on the KS page, images not included here
       

      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a medieval fantastic skirmish game in which you direct a Spearhead (name given to your miniatures team). These Spearheads are composed of anthropomorphic animals of 54mm (this is an indicative value, many species are larger).
      The figures are sold unassembled and unpainted.
      It's an ambitious project where you can choose from four different factions from the start. A rules book will detail all phases of the game, as well as equipment, spells and scenarios. A double-sided battle mat completes the game material.
      You can discover the universe and follow most heroes in a novel already available in French (it's a good way to start learning!): Khârn-Ages T1: The Embrasement.
      In KHÂRN-ÂGES, you can modulate your compositions without changing miniatures! Indeed a same figurine can correspond to several LEVELS of profiles, and you can equip it as you wish, you have the possibility to play it with different characteristics while changing its weapons and its equipment, or to have access to many different spells for magicians. KHÂRN-ÂGES is a scenario game, it is not about exterminating your opponent (even if it's feasible sometimes!), but fulfilling your goals to win.
      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a game that only requires a few miniatures to play, so you will not have a huge budget to plan to get started and buy your 500 Krowns of heroes to build your first Spearhead: the cost of recruitment of each mini proposed in this campaign is indicated below each model, it can be modulated by the equipment that will be available in the rulebook.
      This campaign offers you to acquire the figurines, the rules, the play mat to fully enjoy your fun experience from the start. The rules are easy to understand and very permissive, but the level of strategy is very high and will seduce the most demanding players. You can discover the fighting engine on our YOUTUBE channel (with English subtitles).
      Last but not least, KHÂRN-ÂGES is a 100% French game, the entire project is developed in the north of France, 40 km separate the workshop of creation and production of our paper printer.
      To date, after nearly 3 years of development, we are proud to present most of the miniatures that will be available during this campaign, the others are being modeled.
      Rules and profile cards have been tested (by our team and a number of seasoned Briskars players). They are currently finalized and in the process of being formatted.

      If we decide to go through a crowdfunding campaign, it's because this project can not succeed without you!
      TGCM is a modest company but has always kept its commitments and has created a substantial community around its first game, Briskars. However, the costs of such an adventure are much higher than those that allowed us to launch our first game.
      In addition to the design phase, the production and molding of figurines, there are many items related to the creation of a game.
      Your contributions will allow the printing of books and profiles and equipment cards, the modeling, the production and packaging of minitures, the control of the production line in our workshop to guarantee you the best quality and the development (we hope you will reach these levels) of many game accessories.
      The goal we are hoping to reach may seem important, but it reflects the reality of the costs and charges we face.
      Achieving this goal will allow the birth of KHÂRN-ÂGES, not to end our days in the sun!
      We are counting on you all to reach it and bring the world of Safar to life...

      Khârns
      Proud and bellicose, they are the archetype of the warrior people, but they are far from having the same character. Their king gone crazy and paranoid after having tortured his people for too long is on the verge of being overthrown, the nobles are slipping into profit and debauchery at King-Khârns, the capital, and some, like Prince Baudry and his brave Paladins remain upright to the point of wanting to overthrow the established order.
      However, all swear by blood and steel, the secular worship of this people. They have a brutal and organized fighting style, but are distinguished mainly by their diversity of profiles: from the heavy armors worn by paladins to the rapid attacks of the advanced vanguards, they have no real weaknesses except the valor of their fighters. They are the stability that a player preferring to fight back will particularly like.   Size 75mm / Base 50mm   Size 70mm / Base 40mm   Size 65mm / Base 50mm   Size 54mm / Base 50mm

      I backed one of Annie’s previous kickstarters, the one with all the forest animals including beavers and moose and bears (oh my).
      I also bought several of her female minis and the sculpts are quite nice and the castings were great quality. Very sharp and clean. I’m very happy with what I’ve ordered and if finances allowed I would back again.
