Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

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:

We have the first greens:

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.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
