Shieldwolf hard plastic forest goblins..

Recommended Posts

Pity that we will probably not be showing off vehicles, warmachines and other goodies we had in store for this project, we did leave some teasers and the promise to follow up on this however in order to complete the range, i.e.  even if we don't unlock the Drotts &Drottchins (they unlock contemporaneously), the funding of the Forest Goblins project will make us commit to make the Drotts & Drottchins our very next KS project.

Dropping these here ^_^
Have a great weekend everyone, here's hoping for an awesome last 5 days of the project! ::D:

I'm a bit sad and quite baffled that this has not funded yet and has not reached a couple of stretch goals. The pricing is great, the sculpts are nice (and we're talking about HIPS plastic here). By now they have almost their whole product line as add-ons on offer (lots of good stuff). They are a great company that has successfully run some KS (and delivered to my full satisfaction). What are they doing wrong, where is the problem?

 

I do not want / need 50 goblins, but I'm in for two boxes (after they said I could switch one of those boxes for a box of those female paladins).

I can see part of the hesitation being "do I really want to buy a boat load of goblins when I just want a few?" They're awesome minis, just wish there was more diversity in the lower level pledges. I was stoked about the frog riders, but ugh, definitely don't want 5 of them. Especially when I am going to have 50 goblins, which is already about 40 more goblins than I wanted.

 

Plus, I think the pledges were more confusing/difficult than they needed to be. Eg, I pledged for the Raiding Party. So I search for "raiding" - 3 results, all of which say nothing. Everything is in the text images. So now I have to scroll through all those different options with no easy way to compare. I'm pretty sure back when I pledged, only the goblins were up, which made "choose any raiding party" even more confusing as there was no option.

 

Not a big deal to me, but I can see where the confusion can come from, and how that can deter pledging.

 

Its a shame, since I really like the looks of these. I just don't do armies...

My battle wyvern from them is really top notch..  I don't understand why they have such issues funding... 

Speaking just for myself, although I suspect others may be in the same situation,  I already have a goblin and orc army from GW and another goblin and orcs armies worth of minis from Mantic. 

 

Any goblin minis would have to be pretty special for me to buy them and while I admit the goblin minis from this KS are likely better sculpts than what I have, they’re not special enough. I just have no need for them.

And I’m not a fan of their frog mounts and beast sculpts.

 

Plus the previews that Mantic has been putting out for their upcoming goblin minis have grabbed my interest.

Hi everyone,

thank you for the consideration (even if some don't decide to pledge, fair enough!) ^_^

 

I just dropped by to answer this, we had also planned for Drotts (common goblins) and Drottchins (sci-fi goblins) plastics, which were supposed to unlock contemporaneously but however did not. That was the initial plan.
Plan "B" was the additional banners that had been prescheduled and popped up all over the place to push things faster,  which they apparently did but without it having funded the progress was steady yet slow. And thus plan "C", to add 4 armies from the existing range (you've seen them above), therefore what @Spodi says is correct because when he first looked there was only a single raiding party. Only now can he pick among 5 different ones!
I hope I made sense and helped clear the confusion. ::):

I really like the look of the minis, and if I had all the money in the world, I'd back and get some of those amazing female knights, but I don't need nearly that many of the soldiers, especially with other KSs and miniatures I've got, so I had to drop my pledge. If I still played Warhammer, I might have considered trying to do something with this, but I have all the Orcs and Goblins I probably ever need, despite how great theirs look.

      Story
      Hello everyone!
      This collection of models is all aquatic themed. There are minis, monsters, and scatter terrain. There are 12 models in the cores set, and 18 stretch goals planned. That is up to 30 models with a buy-all price of $6. Times are tough right now, so I wanted to make something affordable that is still just as awesome.
       MODEL OPTIONS 
      All models come with a no base, simple base, and decorative base option. A $10 pledge gets you all 3 versions in addition to the successfully tested resin pre-supported version.
         THE CORE SET 
                              THE STRETCH GOALS
      Every $500 is a new mini, monster, or piece of scatter terrain. All mounts will have a saddle and no saddle version. More stretch goals will be added to match the funding level. So feel free to leave comments about what else you'd like to see!

      Me personally I'm more or less done with CMON. No way I'm spending more than $1 here, but some of you might be interested or some might find the comment section entertaining.

      OK, Heroes Super Chibi Villains is now live! You can head over to Kickstarter via this link to check it out.
       
      http://tinyurl.com/y22q93kj
       
      This Kickstarter is very special to us. It’s the first time we will be focusing on the evil side of the Super Chibi universe and it’s the first time that 95% of the character was designed and drawn by Brian “Natakue” Saunders himself.
      We are also doing something different this time around to test interest. We have included a digital pledge this time around for the .stl files of the minis. This is for those of you out there who want to print your own minis. We know 3d printing Is an ever-growing market and well, we want to see if Super Chibi can be one of the items people want to print on their personal printers. You can also print these files from any company or retailer who provides printings services. Just to name a few there is Impact Miniatures, Shapeways and much more. Right now this is a Kickstarter only deal but if there is interest we will look into making this a standard pledge in all the upcoming Kickstarters and possibility adding this option to our online store.
       
      So with that said we want to say thank you for supporting us and we will see you at the end of the Kickstarter.
