Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, three projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive. Thanks to the support through Kickstarter, 17 miniatures have been made available.

The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Clansmen of Caer Loch. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters).

You can also pick up the other Corvus Corax minis from previous projects as add ons


I've backed the previous projects and been very happy with the results

Pretty cool, but seems a bit pricey for what they are.

Thanks! They are pretty cool, indeed. But I am not sure Joaquin Palacios is able to sculpt something that isn't cool. :D I guess the price depends on what you compare with. If we make a fast comparison with some other resin miniatures we might get a fair idea. These are just a few other companies that are ontop of my mind. There are obviously a lot more. The figures are more pricey than metal and plastic, but lower than comparable other resin figures of equal size. But yeah, only saying that things should be considered in perspective. :)

 

Corvus Corax kickstarter: ~$12 (single and down to ~$7,50 for several)

Games Workshop: $17-25

Kingdom Death: $25

Infamy Miniatures: $17

Demented Games/Twisted: $20

Mierce Miniatures: $18

Arena Rex: $19

Purgatory: $17

Infinity Miniatures (metal): $12-13

I backed the previous project that was cancelled, with these Scot guys and an other clan of Native Americans.

 

I was only interested by the other clan, so I won’t be backing this time.

Funded! And stretch goal #1

Posted by Grefven (Creator)
 

Thanks everyone for the great support. While I had hoped for this project to be successful, I didnt expect it to go this fast. Hopefully, we'll be able to reach one or two stretch goals before the project is over.

Stretch goal #1 - Skult

Skult is a member of the Clansmen of Caer Loch. He will be added for free to anyone who has pledged for the "Pariah" pledge level. So once this goal is reached, the deal will be all the sweeter. Skult has been sculpted by Pedro Fernandez Ramos.

Stretch goal #2 has also been reached, and everyone who joined in at the Pariah pledge level will now receive Selkie for free, bumping the group up to six miniatures included!

Stretch goal #3 will see the first add-on, which will not be a member of the Clansmen, but of the Outcasts of Dur Makeb. If we reach stretch goal #3, Cervus will be available as an add-on. Cervus has been sculpted by Roberto Chaudon.

Stretch goal #4 Posted by Grefven (Creator)

 

Stretch goal #3 has been reached, unlocking Cervus as an add-on. Cervus is a member of the Outcasts of Dur Makeb, and has been sculpted by Roberto Chaudon. Lets just hope that no one drops, or lowers, any pledges now so the total drops below the goal! :)

The next stretch goal, if reached, is another free miniature included in all Pariah pledges, bumping the package up to 8 miniatures. This is an alternate pose of Aktra, a member of the Exiles of the Tetsu Clan, sculpted by Pedro Fernandez Ramos. This version of Aktra is a Kickstarter exclusive miniature and will only be available through Kickstarter, and in a limited amount.

I'm on my way to pledge.  Have to keep my collection complete.  Such wonderful stuff!

 

Thanks mate. :) I hope a couple more also jumps onboard before the end of the project. :)

Stretch goal #4 has been reached, meaning that this Kickstarter-exclusive version of Aktra is added to all Pariah-pledges for free (well, as long as the total doesnt drop down below the goal). The Pariah-pledge will consist out of 7 miniatures. An already good value has become even better!

If we manage to reach Stretch goal #5, Surtr will be made available as an add-on. Surtr is a member of the Nomads, and would increase their amount a bit. Hopefully, we could potentially bolster their numbers a bit more during the campaign, making this faction being able to compete with the others!

Stretch goal #5 has been reached, allowing Surtr to be claimed as an add-on. Surtr is a member of the Nomads, a faction that need some serious reinforcement to bring their strength up to level with the other factios. Surtr is a true colossus on the battlefield!

We've reached stretch goal #6, which means that Aktra "standard miniature" is included in all Pariah pledges. This is, of course, depending of that the project does not see too many failed pledges in the end, that would drop the total down below the goal!

Congrats on a successful campaign!  I will need to add one unlocked model still.  Poor me.  :-)

Thanks for the support everyone who pitched in! :) Now I am just waiting to see how many pledges will fail to collect. Thus far, its a fair bit more than 10%. I hope it clears up a bit before the 2 weeks deadline as it could affect the "final stretchgoal".

      This is an interesting looking project. It's apparently a second edition of a well reviewed game on BGG (8.1 rating). The first edition raised $83k with 909 backers, this one has $446k and 3848 backers with 4 days to go, which seems like a good sign. It's called a semi-cooperative game for 1-5 players, though there is a pvp mode listed under unlocked stretch goals.
       
      The game has three phases, a sea voyage phase that looks like a resource management mini game, a exploration phase that looks to play similar to D&D board games like Wrath of Ashardalon and Castle Ravenloft, and a port phase for upgrading and getting missions.
       
      There aren't a lot of ks exclusives, but the war dog looks great:

      And some add ons, a set of interesting sea miniatures to replace game tokens:

      Can't say I've ever seen a sperm whale mini before, though he's probably minnow sized next to most tabletop minis.
      And the dice tower looks good, with an awesome demo video:

      Looks like Scale75 is about to drop a new paint line on Kickstarter.  Not too much to know right now all they have is a teaser video on their FB saying a new "smooth acrylic" is coming soon to KS. 
       
      I'm not going to post the link because I'm not sure about linking to FB.  I will keep an eye on this and post more once they do. 
       
      I really don't need more paint but if this is decently priced then I may not be able to pass it up.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.

      Belius versus Angus and Branag  
       
      Belius the Black is a giant with mysterious origins. We say about him  that it is the reincarnation of a god, or even,  the guardian of an ancient temple. In short, according to the babarian tribes of the North, it is a black legend  related to Bregan Lorelei’s great-grandfather.
       
      Bélius is a 70 mm figurine sculpted by me, not counting my hours, in order to obtain the incarnation of the warrior of evil, chaos and destruction. The resin cast will be made by Mr Dès, former melter of  Rackham , a pledge of high quality. This project , a range of dark fantasy figurines, is important because I can create from A to Z what i want  while satisfying the fans of my work. 
       
      Indeed,  I have been sculpting figurines for more than 20 years : First, for Rackham for 9 years and then for various freelance brands such as Mierce Miniatures,  Monolith with Conan, Mythic Battles and Claustrophobia which are successful  on Kickstarter.
       
      The Kickstarter platform will allow me to finance the moulds for all the figurines, which are all my personal creations. Knowing that the fans of my work will be able to hold them in hand, paint them, or play with them in any kind of games is really a great pleasure for me. This first step is important because i imagine that these figurines are destined for a game in the future.

                       Belius is accompanied by two brothers, Angus and Branag (35mm): They are barbarians from northern tribes. They are elite soldiers ready to  do anything to protect their lands and the Elebore Forest from any intrusion in the name of their leader, the demigod Siegfried.
