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.

      Hey all,
      I've got a kickstarter up and running for some modular 3d printable sewer tiles and walls (among other sewer related objects)
      Here are some pictures of the printed versions and the relevant LINK
      Over 100 files are available for this.

      11 different prehistoric animals as well as a Dodo, each one in different poses. Most of them also have juvenile, armored and deceased variants, others have those as stretch goals. The early bird pledge is 20$ and is still available for half a day, after that it will be increased to 25$ which still seems to be a good price for the number of minis.
      I backed their previous Cave Set and was happy with the result.

      Story
      Long gone is the time of Dwarves in Midlam, a city built over the ruins of their Middle Home, which lay between the Lost Mountains and the Southern Holds.  The Barons of Midlam have always claimed their city was gifted to them by the dwarves of old, and claim an ancient alliance, although dwarves have rarely been seen in the city, and must register their presence with the Town Council.
      Far to the North, so they say, lies the Lost Mountains, a place of legend and dragons.  It is said that many years ago, a dwarf came to Midlam in secret, hired two guides and headed North, never to be seen again.  There was also rumours that a group of grizzled dwarven mercenaries made the journey, but they too disappeared into folklore.
      Now rumours abound of Dwarven Adventurers, heading North once more, into the perpetual freezing wastes.  The frightened chatter speaks of their desire to rid the Mountains of the orcs and goblins and return the Dwarven King to his throne.  Nobody knows what truly lies North, but people fear the return of the old wars, rampaging dragons and a dark evil that has no name...
       
      Dwarves - A Class of their Own
       
      A set of 12  Male and Female 28m scale Dwarf Miniatures of different Character Classes for all your Fantasy Games.

      Mojibake quit Patreon and it appears they've decided to go the KS route. This is for 5 statues with their corresponding busts as stretch goals.
