The Belsnickel joins the crew (and yes I had to look up what that was)

I really love Stonehaven’s female dwarves and this one is no exception!

It looks like the main video has been quietly updated with additional greens.  I got an email from Stonehaven but not KS regarding it...I'm not sure why it wasn't just an update.

From the email:

The minis look great in those 360o shots, even the wizard is improved when you can see his weird hat is actually some kind of hood.

 

I'll be amazed if guy with the sculpted plaid shirt retains it through the casting process though.

I don't know, from Stonehaven Adventurers 2018 the dwarf trapper had a tartan which retained its pattern in the metal casting. That tartan did look a little more defined than the plaid shirt, but we can always hope.

I'd guess it was so he could send it to backers of all his projects without overwhelming those who backed multiples. I've backed seven, that's a lot of emails.

The Kabukimono is up next:

I have a sad feeling we won't be seeing any resin rivals/big guys this time around.  I noticed the resins from the Stonehaven Giants Kickstarter still were not at retail.  I can only suspect there's an issue with their resin caster.

It’s funded. Reached everything except a big doggy which might be added through post kickstarter pledges if the total is high enough.

But we did reach the only human mini.761B3F78-B72D-43AF-9907-699ABB30F474.jpeg.49c7004db19e3a5c6e91611a5b73a020.jpeg

I quite like her. Thinking we should push Mike for an all female kickstarter. It’s worked before with a different Michael. :poke:

Many Yays! An update posted by Petra today:

 

Wow! It's been 2 months since Mike sent out an update
Posted by Stonehaven Miniatures (Creator)

Hey everyone,

It's Petra.

Here's what's happening: 

  • Everything is still on schedule. 
  • Sculpting is about done (Mike has about two miniatures left to finish). Minis will be the caster shortly.
  • I started a new job in Utah back in January, after finishing school (which is why no one ever hears from me anymore. And why no one ever hears from this project. Artists, am I right?)
  • Mike has been taking care of the project (the most important part: the dwarves) and kids and house and snow removal in NY.
  • Mike is making a cross country move to Utah in March.
  • Project will ship in April!
  • I love all of you.

If you have any questions or comments, please message us. I will try to take care of them in a super timely manner.  Thanks everyone!

I’m a few days behind in posting this, but Stonehaven posted an update that they are about a month behind due to issues with the digital files.

I’m surprised at this, as I don’t recall it being mentioned anywhere in the kickstarter that Mike was going to digitally sculpt some of the minis. I’m not really happy about it as I’ve noticed it can take a physical sculptor quite some time to master digital sculpting and not all are as successful as others.

 

Personally I think it shows in the digital renders shown in the update. I find there’s something a bit off on them, though it’s harder to pin down with some than others. The poses seem even more stiff and static than normal, something that Mike is often criticized for with his physical sculpts, but these are worse.

They also seem to be lacking the character I find appealing in so many of Stonehaven minis.

So a bit disappointed. A few of Reapers sculptors have gone over to digital sculpting and some of their latest work is outstanding, so I know it’s possible for an experienced sculptor to get good results digitally, but I don’t think Mike is there yet.

I thought they looked pretty good (from what I could see in those teeny tiny pictures), but then I've never been too bothered by his rather static posing style.

      A gang of ten 28mm bandits, thugs and ruffians for all of your fantasy miniature games.
       

       
      Already funded in less than 2 hours.
       
      I really like what Midlam generally does and I happen to need bandits, so i’m probably going to get them all 10 (well, 11 as they always add another mini as a stretch goal). They also allow people to get 9 other bandits from their range as an add-on.

      This KS is now live.  URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/450703636/battletech-clan-invasion
       
      Catalyst Game Labs will be launching a Kickstarter project for a Clan Invasion box set for BattleTech on July 17, 2019.  This was announced on the BattleTech forums about two weeks ago.  I've copied the announcement below:
       
       

      In 3050, the true heirs of the lost Star League thunder forth from the depths of the far Periphery and carve deep into the quarreling Successor States. As the Clan juggernaut rolls across the coreward realms of the Inner Sphere, the House Lords scramble to shore up their defenses and devise some way to halt the invaders.
       
      The Clan spear is aimed at the heart of human-occupied space. Do you possess the bold tactics and heroic courage to defeat warriors trained from birth to conquer? Or will you uphold Kerensky’s dream to cast aside the squabbling lords of the Inner Sphere and reignite the flame of the Star League?
       
      Hot on the heels of the wildly successful launch of two new boxed sets, the BattleTech tabletop game comes to Kickstarter for the first time ever to unleash totally remodeled Clan and Inner Sphere ’Mechs on your gaming table. Utilizing the same process that modernized the nine BattleMechs found in those bestselling box sets, each ’Mech has been painstakingly re-imagined, holding to the spirit of their original design while embracing a modern aesthetic. (Click on the images to enlarge.)

      The Clan Invasion box set will add five popular Clan OmniMechs to your arsenal, including the seminal Timber Wolf (Mad Cat). It will also include a bevy of support materials, the rules needed to play Clan technology, all new maps, and more.
       
      Stretch goals will rapidly fill the ranks with more Clan and Inner Sphere ’Mechs boasting all-new looks. The Clan Command Star expansion will include the devastating Dire Wolf (Daishi) and the ever-popular Shadow Cat, while the Clan Attack Star pack will contain the Warhawk (Masakari) and Nova Cat. Meanwhile, the Inner Sphere will take desperate action to try to stave off the invasion. The Inner Sphere Command Lance pack will deploy the beloved Marauder and Archer, while the Warhammer and Phoenix Hawk will hot-drop from the Inner Sphere Battle Lance pack. And there’s more to unlock on both sides!

      Add-ons will include a plethora of exciting new BattleTech merchandise, the latest rulebooks, sourcebooks, boxed sets, and more!

      About
      Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      By pledging to this campaign, you are stating that you have read and understood all terms and conditions described therein and are accepting them. Therefore, all subsequent interactions with Greebo Games regarding this pledge will have to take this fact into consideration 
      In order: Comparative size between physical prodotypes - Digital Paint for Karimat Blitzer - Karimat's physical prototypes Those who pledge to the project will have a team made of several exclusive miniatures, and these will never be available in the store. This might sound peculiar, since most “KickStarter exclusive” pieces are not part of the teams per se, but rather, optional miniatures, or less important ones. What we’re talking about here, fellas, is giving each backer limited edition models. Later on, people will find different ones in the store, and they won’t simply be mirrored versions, or the same model with an added shoulder pad: they’re going to be different pieces, with different poses and clothed differently. Our goal is to create something that will be more precious, and largely exclusive for our backers, but something that will also retain its price – and that’s why you won’t find any miniatures with outrageous price tags on them, “cause hey, they’re limited edition!”. Nope:  the price will stay exactly the same. 
      Will it be worth it to wait more time in order to be sure to receive a custom team, made of detailed pieces created by talented sculptors, with limited edition models, dedicated stretch goals expressly for gaming purposes (as opposed to “stuff to collect dust on top of a shelf”), for the price of a KickStarter campaign that will surely not be the same of the team in the store?
      The choice is entirely up to you all

      I don't think word got around - which is a damned shame, the minis look wonderful.
       

       

       

       

       
      We will be going in for a rulebook and a pirate band each - Megan going for dwarfs while I take the undead.
       
      At $4,589 of $9,944.
       
      We have the dwarfs from their previous KS - and they are very nice -

       
      The Auld Grump - because who wouldn't want a dwarf pirate wench?

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.
