Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

About

 "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."

-J. R. R. Tolkien

Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 

We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:

The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls.

Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves.

Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.

The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both?

The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.

Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:

03d146ddb314f67bcd0262341dc43446_origina

At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.

At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.

As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

I wish Mike would have sought out ideas for new dwarves before drawing all of them out.

 

Theres some great concepts here but also some not so great.

Oh man, I really never need another Dwarf miniature but some of those are really cool.

I love the Dwarf Warforged.  Hopefully they come up with some new Dwarf-adjacent allies/foes as well.  There's SO many Dwarf projects out there (including that their last two sets had some!)

I haven't gotten my pledge-order from the last KS but that's partly my fault as I had to replace my card tied to my paypal account but mostly due to the loopy pledge manager, they used.

 

I only have 1 Stonehaven mini (a gremlin gunslinger) & I'm happy with the mini. I'm gonna judge the minis I get from the last KS first before committing anything to this one.

 

As far as communication with Micheal/Stonehaven, it's been pretty smooth & nothing against that. I just wasn't happy with the PM they used.

The dwarf trapper from Stoneheaven Adventures 2018 is nice. Though how the PM was organised was little confusing, the creator could easily be reached and was quick in answering the questions I had. 
 

I only have 2 dwarves, the one from the last stoneheaven kickstarter and the one from DDS2. Even so, I don't think I will be backing this kickstarter.

This brings me back, Dwarven Adventurers Box Set was the first miniature related kickstarter I ever backed. It launched a month before Bones 1, 6-1/2 years ago. Still some of the nicest minis I've ever seen. Needless to say, I'm in.

Zombicide was the first Kickstarter I ever backed, the Stonehaven Dwarven Adventurers the second!

Yeah, That Dwarforged was the tipping point for me. Getting the Complete level. even though there are a few I am meh about, there are many more that are potentionly inspiring.

P.S.: I played a Warforged warlock that I refluffed as a Dwarf shaped Construct made to house its creater's son's soul in an attempt to save his son from a devestating disease. It worked, sort of. This Dwarforged Mini is almost exactly how I saw Cobolt Brighthammer under his cloak.

They're not in 5E that I know of, but Warforged even had a variant that were Small-sized, the Warforged Scouts.

Also, I JUST noticed the Barber's back decoration is a mirror.  So cool.

I know what you mean about not feeling them all, but I do trade or sell my extras enough that the completionist is usually worth it to me.  I even backed the Elves and wound up keeping maybe 3 of the Elves...but the Companions and Trolls were so cool!

Warforged are in the Wayfinder's Guide to Eberron, which is currently only available digitally, but is an official release.

 

The small warforged aren't officially in a 5e supplement yet.

Ah, yeah, looking it over, it feels like the "Skirmisher" subrace for them feels like it was meant to be Warforged Scout bodies but they are still Medium.

      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.
