Katai The Chinese Army Kensei Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

I remember their Japanese army KS, there was a ton of choice with great variety. Back then, I went mostly for the singles as they were more PC types instead of NPC grunts.

I have backed two earlier KS, The Undead Samurai and the Wako vs Namban ( Japanese Pirates agains Conquistadores)

I went heavy for the Conquistadores then for my Lost World. The Undead are for my Nippon project.

 

I pledged for 1$ now to be able to access the pledge manager later.

I only want a few characters from the add ons.

Somewhat tempted to get these guys to be LotR Easterlings.  Anyone know of some scale shots with other ranges?

 

Not that I need a bigger backlog of LotR armies.

The Katai will be the same scale as the Kensei and Kensei Undead in this pic.

Glitterwolf (or anyone else),

 

Considering upgrading. How have you found the quality on these vs (day) Reaper. And have they been on time (at least in KS terms)? They seem a little disorganized. 

 

Thanks!

I have backed two Kickstarters from these guys before.

They deliver!

 

I have found them to be good at communication and they fulfilled pretty much on schedule.

 

As for quality, I found them pretty good.

These are metal miniatures, good detail, a tad thinner/leaner maybe than Reaper but they still work well together.

 

Assembly can be a bit more of a pain with some minis.

The Conquistadore riders in particalur were difficult to assemble, they reminded me a bit of the early metal Rackham /Confrontation minis.

But they look good when painted and are worth it.

 

Here are some things from them I painted.

As for Scale comparison:

 

The Dog is from Games Workshop

The Female Monk is from Oathsworn

The Dragon and Ki'rinn are older Ral Partha

The Samurai, Wizard and Oni are from Clan Wars ( Target Games)

And the Demoness from Kensei is on the far left in front.

Thanks for the info! And strong work on the painting. 

 

Good to know they look ok alongside Reaper. Obviously 28mm means different things to different companies.

 

Are there any specific figures besides the conquistadors that you really like? And any thoughts on the game system?

I do not game, I paint for fun and display so I can't say much about that.

 

As for the minis,

I backed before and I have like 80% of their Undead Samurai range, several of the living ones and a large army of Conquistadores.

Looking forward to receive the Katai ones and the rest that I chose.

 

I love the sculpts, some can be a pain to assemble though.

If you scroll further up this thread you can see another scale comparison, not sure if you saw that already.

 

If you're in doubt about the quality, just buy one mini to see if you like it.

      this is my new Kickstarter Project (already funded but moving to new stretch goals)
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aenorminiatures/ogres-and-orcs
       
      the ogres are properly sized monsters at 60mm, cast in resin
      the orcs are 32-33mm, not of the muscular kind but vicious Tolkien inspired ones and are available in both resin and metal
       
      I hope you like them!
       
      the first ogre has 2 heads to chose from


       
      the 3rd one (current SG) is still a WIP

       
      some of the orcs

      About
        Start your journey through deep caverns, and the land of the spiders, before venturing forth into the cursed realms. Ancient demons and foul creatures dwell in the shadows of The Forsaken Lands...lands of ruin, mystery, and decay! Make a pledge to begin your adventure and choose your own path!
      3D printed and painted model depicted above. This piece was printed with a Creality CR-10 and Creality Ender 3. Miniature not included, used to demonstrate overall scale of model. Not affiliated in any way with any companies who produced the 28 mm miniature knight used to show scale in the photographs. The Forsaken Lands terrain collection is designed for 28 mm tabletop wargames and role-playing games. Each pledge is delivered as an STL file pack, designed to be printed on your home 3D printer.
      Each model is to designed to capture your imagination and evoke feelings of mystery, through an ancient lived in world, full of ruin, decay and beautiful imperfection! All files are green lit in Meshmixer and Netfabb, are single shells, and have been extensively test printed and optimized. Printing instructions will be included in each pack.  As a complete set, each piece is designed for a full and diverse setup on your gaming table, intended for games that utilize elevation as well as larger terrain pieces and scatter. Photo/Paint by Wright Terrain Studio/ Alex Wright  NO FILE EXCEEDS 200 mm on any axis and all prototypes featured have been test printed using the Creality Ender 3 and CR-10. Support material is not needed unless stated in select parts, such as roof pieces with larger overhangs.  Explore different lands and locations in the core set with terrain pieces that stand alone, or as a part of larger setup! Begin your long journey in the forsaken caverns where flickers of shadow swell up from the backdrop of ancient rocks and darkened pools amid the torchlight. Enter the land of the spiders as you traverse these narrow paths and hollows with untold numbers of eight-legged, bloodsuckers on the prowl. It would seem that a moment of respite can be found here, as you stumble upon the ruins of an ancient temple. But it is not the holy place it once was. Decayed and covered in thick overgrowth, mystery awaits you as you journey forth. Legend holds that a beautiful and powerful witch once dwelt in this great tower. After a tragic loss, her madness grew in a storm of grief. Some say she still lingers here, immortal, feasting on the flesh of all those who wander into the ancient mountain pass. Creatures of darkness plague this mountain village; there will be no sanctuary for you here. Those who still dwell here may prove even more dangerous than the night hordes responsible for the hundreds of dead buried nearby. An old villager takes you as far as they dare before sending you forth onto what the locals call, The Path of Despair. Here you find the ancient ruins of the city of Irkalla as ghostly moans rise up from the Gate of Souls...
