Dunkeldorf Miniatures - 28mm Townsfolk Miniatures

Welcome to Dunkeldorf! A dark and grim fantasy town filled with sinister characters, but also a few good-hearted ones too! Our kickstarter focuses on these characterful townsfolk that will fit right into any fantasy RPG or tabletop setting, either as heroes, player characters or NPCs!

I thought these had character but quite pricey

 

Yeah. I’m not sure what it is, but these don’t quite hit the mark for me.

Same. Fine idea but they all are thoroughly uninteresting, both in concept art and sculpt execution. Not sure why, but there isn't an allure, and I do have a need for NPCs in general.

I feel like these would all look best painted in dark, drab colours. As though they were all living in some  grimdark town where there's no joy. The innkeeper still tries to be cheery, but he's fairly new to the town and his spirit hasn't been crushed yet. 

 

I particularly like the scowly blacksmith. She looks ready to pummel the next idiot who asks for a discount on his horse being shod.

Dunkeldorf from German translate to "dark village". I think the feel of the characters captures that haha

Hey folks! I was just made aware of this post and thought I would drop in with a reply, being behind the Kickstarter and all! :P  - Thanks for posting Chaoswolf, much appreciated :) 

The whole idea behind the project is to have a town with a bunch of stories and characters that will eventually turn into an RPG sourcebook, that can be used for different RPG fantasy systems. So as a DM you have a ready-made town with miniatures to follow. 

And yes, it's meant to be a bit of a dark story/setting! Those who are familiar with Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay will probably recognize that as a general theme ;)

 

Our goal was to make non-generic townsfolk with as much character as possible. An example is the scowly blacksmith as redambrosia mentioned, she has a "Leg brace" , due to an injury she sustained in combat.
We tried to add these little touches to give the miniatures more character and to incorporate their background story. 

 

Owning a hobby store myself (And selling Reaper miniatures) I do think the price is pretty fair (We can't go any lower at least, as a small company) - If going for the full set you currently get 15 miniatures, so a little less than 5 USD per miniature. And then you also get quite a lot of free accessories too :) 

 

Wanted to show a couple more pictures from the campaign to anyone interested!

No problem!

I kind of like the look of some of them specifically because they don't look all happy and cheerful. Check out the Burgomaister---he's definitely up to something!

Good to hear! The good thing about miniatures is that you can easily paint them slightly different, so if you want the Burgomeister looking happy it is actually possible! (Tried and tested) 
And yes, that guy is definitely up to something ;) 

 

We recently showed a bit of artwork of him sitting at his desk (Included below). It's an homage to an awesome RPG book from the mid 80's called Shadows over Bogenhafen.

I'll have to see if I can buget this in. I really like these guys, especially the butcher and the blacksmith, but baby stuff comes first.

      BACKERS 1,371 Quick Facts
      Cosmo Communicator is a pocketable clamshell smartphone with a physical backlit keyboard Device features dual colour touchscreen displays and a 24MP camera External 2" touchscreen when device is closed and large 6" touchscreen when device is open - ample space to create on the move.
      Cosmo runs Android 9 (Pie) and also supports Linux OS, such as Sailfish OS and Debian, with a multi-boot option
      Built to be the only device you need to carry, and small enough to fit in your pocket, it’s a true all-in-one replacement for both your mobile phone and your laptop.
       
      Media Coverage

      Slashgear  "This is just the latest and greatest of the machines the company’s made to fill the gaps between smartphone and laptop“
      ZD NET  "Tiny Android, Linux laptop: Cosmo Communicator is also dual-screen phone”
      The Verge “tiny Android laptop …doubles as a phone”
      The Register  "Planet brought the clamshell QWERTY back to the market 17 years after Psion made its last PDA”
      Engadget  “intended to serve as a phone, not just a pocketable productivity machine”
      Liliputing  “… use as a smartphone replacement rather than a smartphone companion”
      Engadget Japan “レトロフューチャーなデザインに最新機能山盛りのGemini PDA後継機”
       
      The Planet Story continues...
      At Planet Computers innovation is at the heart of our company.  Earlier this year,  we successfully delivered our Gemini PDA product to more than 7000 Indiegogo backers who supported our mission to kick start a new mobile computing revolution. 
      Now, we are ready to push our vision even further and you can be part of it.
      In the process of developing our new device we asked our Indiegogo backers, users and followers what features they wanted to have.
      We are excited to announce that we are extending the range of Planet devices with the Cosmo Communicator, our new flagship device.
      The Cosmo Communicator is a modern dual-screen clamshell-based mobile communicator with an integrated keyboard. It is built to be a great pocket computer, a superb mobile phone and an excellent high resolution camera.

      The Cosmo features dual colour displays: it features an external colour touchscreen display for easy phone call control and notifications.  Tucked away inside the beautiful and sleek award winning clamshell design is an ultra-wide 6” colour touchscreen display providing ample space to create on the move with a fully functioning  keyboard integrated into the device. When open, the innovative clamshell also acts as a support of the device, allowing you to type comfortably.

      Cosmo’s newly designed backlit keyboard, allows you to comfortably work at night or in dark spaces such as on long plane journeys without the need of external lighting.
       
       
       
      Disclaimer; I own the Gemini, their previous communicator. 
      Yes, the keyboard works and you can write on it at a decent speed. 
      Unfortunately, on the Gemini, Libreoffice on Debian really lags... like my painting... 
      (Yeah, struggling to catch up.)
      They're promising a faster CPU with more cores on the Cosmo, but so far I don't know how much faster. 
      MUltiboot OS is possible (I have Debian as default, Android as second and Sailfish as the third on my Gemini), but currently it requires a fiddly process where you download OS images, erase the internal storage on the device, then use a PC SW package to flash it with the images. And multibooted devices don't support the usual Android update system.   
      (I expect the process will be improved later)
       
      I'm currently undecided and have about a week left to decide...

      This is a small campaign that features a set of Michael Anderson Models. Only one honest pledge level, that's it.

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