Hello there.We would like to introduce you to our miniature painting holders.From the day I started painting miniatures, I confronted with various things that I considered it needed improvement, as  lighting on the miniature, attaching the miniature to the holder, good grip of the holder, airbrushing multiple miniatures at once, and the most important to feel effortless while painting, which I all applied by creating our painting system, and here it is.

The Ice Cream:

This holder is amazing due to its features: 

light on the miniature for a better vision,automatic back and forward rotation and magnetic head (N 52 magnets).Its size is:14 cm height by 5 cm diameter.

                                              These are 3D printed prototypes

The Clamp:

The clamp head  is designed for a secure hold of your miniature,being able to hold various base sizes from 20 mm up to 60 mm! The clamp has two levels as you can see in the picture.The first level holds between 20 and 40 mm bases and the second level holds from 40 up to 60 mm.As well,it uses  N 52 magnet for fast attaching to any of our holders.The magnetic head makes your miniature attaching easier than ever in just one click sound.. It saves you time and effort with no need of using mounting putty or tacky sticks or any other sticking stuff..

Who said that the small can't hold the big?

                                               These are 3D printed prototypes

The Torch:

We call this one the torch because put together with the clamp it looks like one. We should not underestimate it, because of its features: with this holder you will experience the truly smooth rotation due to its ball bearings(no friction). You don't need two fingers to rotate it, it will easily move by just a thumb touch. Its size is:10.5 cm Height by 3 cm diameter.

                                               These are 3D printed prototypes

Wow, another kickstarter for miniature holders? I do like the looks of this one more than others on the market at the moment, but I'm not convinced any of them are "better enough" for the prices they wanted compared to what I use now. The clamp for different size bases does look particularly good though- if anyone does go in on it when it delivers I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on using it.

While not on the snake-oil level of RGG, it's still a product creating a problem for it's own solution.

I'm of the same thought. Too gimmicky to be worthwhile. Though I can appreciate the rubber band clamp for its simplicity, the rest of the handle that needs its own stand is bad design.

 

Though I can appreciate more light while painting, having the USB lamp itself in the way (since having my miniature backlit while I paint is not helping) is just going to make it worse.

 

Anyone else suddenly want to eat a carrot while looking at the prototype?

I would be very interested in the top half piece, that is clever. And by having the magnet in the base, you could put it on any kind of handle that would hold a steel washer.

I saw erm... an adult toy. Not really the multipurpose that I want for my mini painting :rock:

I love the fact that the most useful "innovation" mentioned so far is the rubber band...  ::P:

 

I think we've officially reached the point where so many people have noticed that geeky kickstarters do well that people are creating way more projects than the demand can really support.  See also dice kickstarters.

Yup, I see this one will be on thingiverse in about a month or less. :lol:

 

Again, it doesn't beat my Tamiya paint can with cap & double stick foam tape.

I'm hoping when it shows up there, they have some for hex bases!

I find it a "little" overpriced...
don't know, lately I find that people on KS start thinking about the hobbist like ATM they can milk off trying to sell us every damn piece of plastic s***t for 30€/$/£...
kind of boring...

Yeah, KS definitively attracts the good old fashioned get-rich-quick scammers. Although this one actually seems more like an attempt at humor than a scam ::P: For the most part, a pill bottle with poster tac is more than enough - especially ones with the spinning adult-proof caps, makes it easy to spin the model around without changing my grip. That being said, I did back the Rathcore V3 mini holders when they came out - they function well for my nerve damage hand, the bars are movable and sturdy enough to use as a rest/stabilizer when painting tiny things as my hands shake - they are hand made and assembled, and well worth the money. The first copy-cat that came around after the V3 was a hit on kickstarter, the Hobby Holder, is actually a well thought out product that allows you to use regular bottle caps, but to me seems about double the cost it should be. The last few that have popped up on KS have been nothing less than entertaining to read, I keep imagining a video of a guy trying to sell them out of a covered wagon as he treks across the mid US.

I think it’s due to 3D printing becoming more commonplace. So a heap of people are coming out with stuff where they think something 3D printed solves the problem. Previously they would have had to get a plastic mould made, which is a much more expensive process.

          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

      Yedharo/GT Studio, who haven't delivered on their Orc Busts campaign yet (I know that's important for you*) are running a little 2 week campaign for some dwarf miniatures.
       
      Live Link
       
      Now personally I like some of these but, in many cases, there's something slightly off about them. One of the dwarf warriors has a slab-like square beard. The heavily armoured dwarfs with the big shields feel too Wizards of the Coast and not Old Wordy enough for me. It's mostly those helmet designs. Overall they're not a bad bunch 'though. I keep looking at that jumping trollslayer and hearing the song from Singham in my head.
       


















       
      * Personally when it comes to people starting a new kickstarter before delivering on a previous one my opinion depends on who's behind the project. It depends on their reputation. Are they known for being capable of delivering on their promises? Do I know them well? Have I placed orders with them before with satisfactory results etc? Have I had bad customer service experiences with them in the past? If it's Shadows Of Esteren, for example, then I'd probably be all over it. If it were Norba Miniatures then it would probably get a big fat no from me. If it were Titanforge..... I'd seriously have to think about it because their quality is really good but they don't seem to be so good at delivering their kickstarters. So I tend to moderate my opinion on repeat campaigns before delivering on a case by case basis.

      Didn't see this one on the forums yet.  DreamForge is releasing something new following their past production issues.  Neat looking tank.  I've got a bunch of their other stuff, and while I haven't built the big mech yet, the other vehicles and troops were great kits.  Not sure they're going to hit the goal at this rate though.
