Some NSFW minis on the KS page, images not included here

 

The project

KHÂRN-ÂGES is a medieval fantastic skirmish game in which you direct a Spearhead (name given to your miniatures team). These Spearheads are composed of anthropomorphic animals of 54mm (this is an indicative value, many species are larger).
The figures are sold unassembled and unpainted.
It's an ambitious project where you can choose from four different factions from the start. A rules book will detail all phases of the game, as well as equipment, spells and scenarios. A double-sided battle mat completes the game material.
You can discover the universe and follow most heroes in a novel already available in French (it's a good way to start learning!): Khârn-Ages T1: The Embrasement.

In KHÂRN-ÂGES, you can modulate your compositions without changing miniatures! Indeed a same figurine can correspond to several LEVELS of profiles, and you can equip it as you wish, you have the possibility to play it with different characteristics while changing its weapons and its equipment, or to have access to many different spells for magicians. KHÂRN-ÂGES is a scenario game, it is not about exterminating your opponent (even if it's feasible sometimes!), but fulfilling your goals to win.

KHÂRN-ÂGES is a game that only requires a few miniatures to play, so you will not have a huge budget to plan to get started and buy your 500 Krowns of heroes to build your first Spearhead: the cost of recruitment of each mini proposed in this campaign is indicated below each model, it can be modulated by the equipment that will be available in the rulebook.

This campaign offers you to acquire the figurines, the rules, the play mat to fully enjoy your fun experience from the start. The rules are easy to understand and very permissive, but the level of strategy is very high and will seduce the most demanding players. You can discover the fighting engine on our YOUTUBE channel (with English subtitles).

Last but not least, KHÂRN-ÂGES is a 100% French game, the entire project is developed in the north of France, 40 km separate the workshop of creation and production of our paper printer.

GoalTo date, after nearly 3 years of development, we are proud to present most of the miniatures that will be available during this campaign, the others are being modeled.
Rules and profile cards have been tested (by our team and a number of seasoned Briskars players). They are currently finalized and in the process of being formatted.

If we decide to go through a crowdfunding campaign, it's because this project can not succeed without you!
TGCM is a modest company but has always kept its commitments and has created a substantial community around its first game, Briskars. However, the costs of such an adventure are much higher than those that allowed us to launch our first game.
In addition to the design phase, the production and molding of figurines, there are many items related to the creation of a game.
Your contributions will allow the printing of books and profiles and equipment cards, the modeling, the production and packaging of minitures, the control of the production line in our workshop to guarantee you the best quality and the development (we hope you will reach these levels) of many game accessories.
The goal we are hoping to reach may seem important, but it reflects the reality of the costs and charges we face.

Achieving this goal will allow the birth of KHÂRN-ÂGES, not to end our days in the sun!
We are counting on you all to reach it and bring the world of Safar to life...

Factions

Khârns

Proud and bellicose, they are the archetype of the warrior people, but they are far from having the same character. Their king gone crazy and paranoid after having tortured his people for too long is on the verge of being overthrown, the nobles are slipping into profit and debauchery at King-Khârns, the capital, and some, like Prince Baudry and his brave Paladins remain upright to the point of wanting to overthrow the established order.
However, all swear by blood and steel, the secular worship of this people. They have a brutal and organized fighting style, but are distinguished mainly by their diversity of profiles: from the heavy armors worn by paladins to the rapid attacks of the advanced vanguards, they have no real weaknesses except the valor of their fighters. They are the stability that a player preferring to fight back will particularly like.

Maaaaaaan, I love those gnolls! Super cool sculpts.

 

Too bad they're so large. I'd love those for my D&D games, but at 54mm+, they're just too big.

You had to mention gnolls to make me look again, didn't you..... ::P:

 

Those... As far as I can tell on mobile, are indeed some rather nice looking sculpts... And concepts.. 

 

Wonder why it's such a jump to go from 3 minis to 5 minis, price goes up by 40€ for only two minis. 

 

.. Oh, because brain math is off, that's why.

This is the first time I (and probably the rest of the planet) have ever seen humanoid gnu miniatures.

I rather like those gnolls, but I have no use for them (and no interest in the game they go with), so they'd be display pieces... right now, not something I have space for. 

Ah, well. Another day, perhaps.

I could see a whole adventure for a 28mm game themed around these and the Reaper Savage Avatars from Bones III and the Elephantine characters from Bones IV. An Avatar Crisis/Time of Troubles style adventure with demihuman avatars wandering the world causing (and stopping) mischief. It would be nice to have some different humanoid avatars. Especially the gnollish ones, Yeenoghu shouldn't be the only deity for all of them. I prefer them as feral savages rather than full on demonically evil.

 

Still, as much as I like the idea, I can't justify the cost. I hope if the project is successful (and it seems well on it's way) they will consider re-releasing them in a more affordable scale.

They maybe expect that the pledge will include more free items as the project progress.

The shipping tracker app on my phone just told me that the Norwegian Post just slapped a VAT and handling charge on a package from TGCM Productions, so odds are that it's the minis from this KS... 

And that they actually know how to fill out a customs label correctly. 

They must even have added my phone number on the right place since it showed up in the tracker...   

 

Anyway, I think it just may be time to update status to 'shipping'...

      The only issue I have is the number of claims they are making. Not sure how many have actually been proven.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      Hello dear 3d printing tabletop players and collectors! I’m Francesca Musumeci (from the Artisan Guild Patreon) and this is my personal project I had been working on for a very long time!
      AMAZONS! is a Kickstarter that includes a collection of high-quality figures and terrains, ready to be 3d-printed as miniatures for tabletop gaming or scaled up as huge collectibles for display. Every non-monster figure will be a bad-broccoli heroine! There aren’t enough strong women figures out there and I'm coming in to fill the void!
      David T. Roa Instagram: www.instagram.com/ravenstagg.creative.studios/ WHAT DO I RECEIVE?
      Every sculpt I make will be exported as a high-quality 3d .STL file, that you can print at home with your FDM or resin 3d printer. My quest is to make sure you will have fun through the whole process: from printing the models, to painting them, to using them in your favorite games. The files I'll provide are for personal use. Sharing Links and STLs is extremely prohibited (check the rules at the end of the this page).  
      Scroll at the bottom to get his PDF guid and Profile! Medusa, first Freebie of this Campaign and special "Pinup" model. Available to our 35 Eur Backers! THE CORE SET
      The Core Set is a group of models and scenaries available to our 35Eur backers. Every figure in this Kickstarter is different: even if they belong to the same class each one will have a different pose and unique details, same for the scenaries. Everything is handsculpted in Zbrush. The Core Set is delivered to our backers immediatly after the campaign ends. The Core Set includes the following 3D printable characters: 
      15 Custom Bases 3 Amazon Warriors 3 Amazon Archers 3 Amazon Spearmasters Amazon Hunter Heroine Dwarven Berserker Heroine 3 Giant Bears Epic Boss: Wood Troll FREEBIES! Stay ready for some extra surprises!  It additionally contains the modular Amazon Camp, wich includes:

A preview of the Core Set THE STRETCH GOALS! (scroll down for pics!)
      Thanks to the Stretch Goals we will delivery even more miniatures and terrains, including Units, powerful Heroines, Monsters and special Bosses! As we unlock a Stretch Goal I will immediately start to work on the unlocked model(s).  As descripted before, when a Stretch Goal includes 2 or 3 figures of the same kind, each one is different (pose, details, hairs and so on). I have been working hard to make sure the Core Set is already done, so you start receive models immediately after the campaign ends. For the rest of the Stretch Goals I'll keep you updated often and release them every few days as I finish each sculpt: just the time you need to print the previous ones :)
