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.

      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.
