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.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
