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 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!

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.

      About
      Welcome to the Great Wall draft page – the campaign is not live yet, but we will be gradually adding more and more information about the game here! We are incredibly excited to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think. If it looks interesting to you - make sure to click the "Notify me on launch" button!
      The Great Wall is a new major board game from Awaken Realms (creators of Nemesis, Tainted Grail, Etherfields and many other acclaimed products). Players will take the roles of generals of an ancient oriental empire who lead the defence against ruthless hordes. You will need to gather allied advisors, manage your workers, recruit armies and, together with other players, raise and defend the Great Wall! As the game progresses, you will often need to co-operate or negotiate with other players, but make no mistake – there can be only one winner!
      This fresh worker (and soldier!) placement game for 1-4 players faces them with many difficult choices and often pushes them to interact with each other. You will be assigning your workers to eleven different locations, such as Tea House, Quarry, Messenger Post, or Barracks, using special Command cards that have additional effects. Production in locations activates ONLY when all their slots are filled, but filling them all by yourself can result in a penalty. On top of that, players can buy overseers who will give additional output every time a location becomes activated. This creates a lot of involving long- and short-term strategies.
       Each player starts with one unique General, characterized by their asymmetric power, as well as the production level. From there, you will further customize your economic engine and fine-tune your strategy by recruiting advisors who provide additional bonuses.
      Eventually, a Wall Defence phase beings, where players place previously build armies on Horde Cards – earning Honor (Victory points) and looting resources from the defeated troops. This requires smart management of three types of units: Archers, Spearmen and Cavalry. Players place these soldiers one by one, playing the Tactics cards that create another layer of interaction.
      Gain meditation by shooting with the Zen Archer, then spend meditation on a Cavalry Squad Leader to move your Cavalry around the battlefield faster, and – finally – finish off by getting extra Honor for each of the Cavalry’s engagements thanks to the Banner Holder. There are endless possibilities for great combos and memorable plays.
      On top of that, your Advisors and General might give your troops extra abilities, such as shooting twice or looting twice the resources!
      All of the above makes the Great Wall one of our most strategically involving designs that will be appreciated by many different groups of players: those who love euro-styled games with their intricate economies and engine-building, those who love over-the-table play, bargaining and negotiations – and finally, those who simply like to wage war on a beautiful map.

      I'm not associated with these guys, but they make some pretty good MDF terrain, and are branching out into minis

      You spoke and we listened ...
      Thank you for checking out our project. After our first successful project we are back with the same great detailed miniatures but in the 28mm scale many of you wanted.
      Made from injection moulded PVC we were incredibly happy with the quality of our previous models, the factory we worked with were very efficient allowing us to start to fulfil our Kickstarter a full two months early.
      We worked hard to have our sculpts in place meaning as soon as we are successful we can spring into action and instruct the factory to start the process. 
      Core Box Alpha containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Core Box Beta containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Pledge for both to make a saving. Both Core Boxes containing 4 large Animals (2inch base) and 12 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Containing various animals and companions these 2 core sets are everything you loved in the first but with a 28mm scale. 
        At a staggering 7" tall and 10" long the mighty Tarrasaque attacks... Think yourself lucky, he was originally intended to be 14" in height!
