Base pack (early bird) is about $28 (for resin minis!)

 

lots of stretch goals adding minis to that base pack (at the moment, there are five (!) more minis in the above pack), lots of add-ons at a price that's too good to be true ... so I think I'll be a bit careful (especially since my experience with resin KS is not good).

etc ...

 

Anybody heard of this Spanish company?

They have a few nice minis on their homepage, but it's only in Spanish...   

(The domain seems to have been registered back in 2014, so it's possible they've been around a few years)

Yes, they've been around for a little while, and they make some pretty nice figures. (I've got a few I got second hand that are waiting for some paint)

I don't know if they've ever done a kickstarter, though.

afaik it's their first. But if they are an established company, that does not bother me (that much).

All but the last stretch goal (an Ogre!) are actually unlocked. I hope they have a good idea what they can shoulder ... would not be the first KS that went off-course because of stretch-goal inflation.

These look real nice. I am in for the early bird + 10 Euro extra for 5 more minis. These will make great command and unit leaders for my Fireforge games army that's coming. It doesn't hurt that this is a super great deal, even with 15 euro shipping.

 

Their website has "Hijos de Grifo", Sons of the Griffon? some of which are already part of the kick starter, but there is a unit of halberdiers that I would love to get. I asked in the comments if they would consider adding them as an add on... I nice unit of 30 with full command would be great. The cavalry look pretty good too, but don't know how much I can swing for this.

They've been around for a couple of years. They do seem to operate primarily in Spain, but have received some attention in Germany. I know the Brückenkopf Online site covered them at least far back as early 2017, and Battlefield Berlin carried them at one point (I think they haven't restocked lately, though).

 

I've never actually seen any of their stuff myself, though, so I can't really say anything about technical/material quality, unfortunately.

 

EDIT: Also, I wish the campaign had larger images. Just so I actually said that.

I had been so shocked by the shipping cost, I hadn't even looked at the base set price.  Even with both to the US, that's a great deal.  I've been eyeing the existing Greatsword curling his mustache for some time, so I will definitely be adding him on.

These would make an excellent Mordheim warband.

So right now, for 40 Euros... 25 + 15 shipping (US) which is about $45.26 you get 18 human sized minis and 2 Ogres. With another free mini unlocking soon.

 

Edit: The above price is the early bird, which lasts for another 5 days, then goes up 3 Euro.

 

Their cover picture is what you get right now. That's 2 Euro ($2.26 US) per mini currently. With all of them resin and 2 large size guys.

The pricing seems incredibly low for resin. I'm worried that they just aren't going to be able to complete this kickstarter. 

 

It does seem low compared to other companies. Though on their website, the characters offered in this kickstarter are 4 euros vs. the 2 euros here. The regular soldiers are 10 euros for a 10 man unit. So it looks like they normally aren't that high outside of kickstarter either. If they can sell at those prices normally? The 50% reduction on characters is a thing though. From the creator's comments in the comment section, it does not sound like there will be many more stretch goals, so this is probably as good as the deal gets... but its a pretty good deal.

 

On a side note, the Creator said that the halberdiers that I asked about will be available in the pledge manager. So, I am looking at another 34 euros in the pledge manager for 30 halberdiers and 3 command.

 

Edit: So bigger pictures of some on the KS characters, the halberdiers and the knights.

Oh they have. I discovered them a couple of years ago and their Dwarven infantry are really good value for money. When it comes to the dwarven stone golems you can occasionally see sculpt lines and the same applies to some of their regular sized models in a few places but they've really cornered the cheap and cheerful market that a lot of rank and file wargamers are looking for.

      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)
      GOAT Shepherd $95
      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)

      Midlam always has some very nice sculpts, great castings and timely delivery ... and I do not have enough Hobgoblins ... (i.e. less than 20).

      And lots more ... this is a bad time with Reaper Bones and lots of other interesting projects at the same time. Probably the first time I will take full advantage of every "pledge $1 now and rest in pledge manager" offer possible.
