Recommended Posts

I've backed three of their Kickstarters before and have always been very satisfied. Characterful minis and fast delivery.

 

His Excellency, the Grand Vizier (NOR-01) 

e5838809c86c22c8a63d39ace36fc204_origina

The most trusted confidant of His Highness, the Grand Vizier is the chief courtier and administrator of the highest affairs of state.

 His Highness, the Khan-Sultan of Noresmi (NOR-02)

eb729eb715635dbf1403e0b78f5207e4_origina

Ruler of the City and the surrounding lands of many leagues, the current Khan-Sultan hails from a long line of rulers, some weak, some strong, some cunning, some naïve. Having traveled with the Grand Caravans in his youth, he is determined to maintain and expand Noresmi’s standing, yet keeps court in the lavish style expected in this part of the world. 

 The Khan-Sultan’s Wife and the Royal Chancellor (NOR-03)

d86b8e8ed1d9285277d0aad3fc6b2c3a_origina

From a marriage of reason to cement an alliance with a neighbouring state grew respect and love – these days, the Khan-Sultan’s wife takes great interest in her husband’s duties and advises him as the need arises. Rumour has it that the rode out as a Warrior-Princess, but who would dare to ask her about it?

Supervising the Khan-Sultan’s treasuries, the Royal Chancellor is traditionally appointed from the most successful and proven members of the trader aristocracy. 

 Wise Men of the East (NOR-04)

429791a3ad2fdfb44b6190e3b8c518e0_origina

Knowledge is not a commodity as easily traded as more tangible goods, but still in high demand. The Khan-Sultan, following the example of his great-grandfather, expanded his court by maintaining an academy of sages to collect the wisdom of the world.

 Merchants of Noresmi (NOR-05)

dea76c4606d425ad4dfc0a1598df0d6f_origina

When it comes to preparing a Grand Caravan, the Khan-Sultan summons the foremost merchants of the city, as well as the most-renowned travellers to plan out this great venture. But with trade being such an important part of Noresmian daily life, one will very likely meet those notables on the markets, at their trade houses, remarkably comparable to the Kontors of Bruegelburg.

 Advisors to the Court (NOR-06)

66a6b01e2f50c59e11dc52a28f25fa2f_origina

As merchants grow in age and esteem, it is customary to hand over the daily running of business to their successors. The most esteemed among them may find themselves appointed Advisor to the Court, as the Khan-Sultans seek to put their knowledge and experience to good use (and keep an eye on those of great ambition).

 Courtier of the Hillfolk and Servant (NOR-07)

0c5aead8aeb6f83b3ba6eee7cb849279_origina

In ages past, when the Dwarfs were more adventurous, some clans set out to claim new lands in the East. They maintained some of their ancestral reclusiveness, but some dwell in the city of Noresmi itself, working as blacksmiths and goldsmiths, where their prodigal skill find great acclaim and may even lead to a place on the Khan-Sultan’s council. 

 The Cuisinier Royal (NOR-08)

78c655e938da50fe80c4aedf436f1f66_origina

Noresmian cuisine is known for its exotic combination of foods, spices and specialties from all over the world. Only the most skilled and trusted cooks find themselves appointed to the court kitchens, and closely watched due to their sensitive position. 

 Male Servants (NOR-09)

9259b3b883ca2c9547be6a8c423779c6_origina

The Khan-Sultan’s palace guard maintains a continuous presence on the streets of the city. Still, there are some areas where only the shrewdest and toughest servants are sent to conduct their masters’ business. 

 The Tax Collectors (NOR-10)

2346b2374429d97ae09b37e4a4ba10a9_origina

In order to pay for his court, but also to maintain roads, bridges and other public institutions, the Khan-Sultan levies various taxes and duties. Guarded by trusted palace guards, Tax Collectors are a common sight during market days and at the time of every third moon.

 Streetfolk (NOR-11)

b35ca22c0532283d58dd3ba7bfc73c72_origina

Despite the strange smells, uncommon sights and sounds, life in the city is broadly similar to that in Bruegelburg. On market days, one will meet people from all walks of life.

 Palace Guards (NOR-12)

4ee4d82d17abd4b129ba71f9526e6e03_origina

Palace Guards are hand-picked from veterans of the standing army. It is a posting of high repute, and many a guardsman retired to become chief bodyguard to powerful merchants favoured by the Khan-Sultan. 

 Master of the Armies with Herald (NOR-13)

b940ba04d21ddc1ea825f098822a030b_origina

One of the most trusted positions on the Khan-Sultan’s court, the Master of the Armies is the chief commander of the palace guard and the small standing army maintained to keep peace along the trade routes.

Funded and first stretch goal announced:

 

image.png.69a128f105ccc0439f3bfae9d2f298cd.png

 

Herald at 4.500 Euro: There is a Herald included in Set NOR-13, but we have a second pose of Herald coming as a free adition to your pledges. The two Heralds nicely complemented, each of them turning to a different direction. If we reach this goal, every pledge of at least Chancellor level or 50 Euro will be added the Herald for free.

I love the designs, and I missed the last one (my fault, I forgot to pledge when I had plenty of opportunities).

 

What I'm secretly hoping, is that they open up their back catalog for even more minis!

So I went full-in, and pledged enough to get both or the original "Day at the Fair" and "Dwarven Gold" sets as add-ons.

 

That's a lot of minis with character.

      Miniatures based on the art from the Fighting Fantasy books. 
      I was an avid fan of the books growing up so I'm definitely in
       





       
      WHEN IS THE KICKSTARTER?
      Our kickstarter release will go live approximately October 16th. It will feature all of the new models and the updated versions of some models with plenty of extras. If you can't attend FFF3 or don't get exactly what you want, then join us on Kickstarter and check out what's on offer.

      WHATS BEING ADDED TO THE RANGE?
      The 10 additional models will be gradually revealed on here and social media in the build up to the kickstarter release. Why not generate a little hype! 

      HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN ITS LIVE?
      If you sign up to our newsletter via www.atlantisminiatures.com, email notifications will be sent during the build up and once we are live.

      WILL THERE BE AN EARLY BIRD OFFER?
      This is something we have always struggled to get right. This time we will have a first 48 hour discount on some of the rewards options.
      There will be no super early bird discounts on this release.

      WHAT ABOUT STRETCH GOALS?
      There will be some stretch goal additions to the Collectors options. We will not be using miniatures as stretch goals in this release. Instead, we have tried to get the prices as generous as possible on box offers. It doesn't feel right to separate some of the release as freebies. Each character from the franchise deserve their own spot in the box, which is why we have priced accordingly on the box offers.

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      What are GOAT Dice?
      Polyhedral 20 sided dice that produce a visual swirling effect when rolled. The effect is akin to animation or holographic. Don't believe me? Watch the video!
      Handmade and Artisanal. 
      Each GOAT Dice is produced by hand by one person(me). The process takes 4 days total with many overnight curing processes. The dice are made from resin and secret proprietary ingredients to create the visual effect. 
      Are these dice fair?
      The #1 question asked. The truth is, I don't know, but I think so. I've rolled these dice hundreds of times to shoot the very videos you see here as well as having played with them and they don't seem to be unfair based on my experience. They cannot be tested by the infamous salt water trick because they sink due to their higher than normal weight and density.
      They roll just like any other D20 with one small difference. The inertia from the spinning core causes a drama moment at the end of the roll, sometimes the inertia is strong enough to make the dice flip one more side and other times the inertia is not strong enough and it does a bounce back. This does not effect the randomness, but can create tension. 
      Shipping.
      I've done shipping like this, on a good month working full time I can make 300 total GOAT Dice, so I've split that in half and adjusted the shipping accordingly. The early backers, the first 150 dice, I am expected to get out before the end of December and with any luck delivered before Christmas. Then I batch them into 3 months (450) for each quarter of 2020, so if you miss early backing then your delivery will be targeted for end of march, if you miss March, end of June and so on. Best case scenario all dice are shipped in half the time allotted. When one reward tier is out of stock, another will be added with +3 months on expected delivery. 
       
      GOAT Admirer $1
      You like what you see and want to support this project. You can adjust your pledge at anytime and choose a reward. If you adjust your pledge for a reward, I will do my best to place you in the correct shipping timeline based on your time of pledging. If you want dice, best practice would be to back one of the other tiers. 
      Petting Zoo GOAT $25
      You will receive a single GOAT Dice of your choosing.
      Mountain GOAT $45
      You will receive two GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $22.50 for additional GOAT Dice up to 4, if you want more than 4 you are upgraded to GOAT Shepherd. (you may choose the same color twice or more)

      You will receive five GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $18.00 for additional GOAT Dice, no maximum. (you may choose the same color twice or more)
