Quite a long time ago, this project was on KS for the first time. The creator had a lot to learn about material, options on sprues, poses etc ... so the first KS lost momentum. He sure took his time and now he's back and it looks to me (at first glance) that he definitely did his homework. It might me a niche "army", but I'm definitely interested in a pack of those fauns.

If some of the stretch goals get unlocked, there is some awesome stuff coming.

Hmm. If this was in individual faun miniatures I may be more interested than in the build-an-army form. I'd rather like one male, one female, one minotaur, one centaur type thing. I have no need for dozens.

Well, the basic box comes with enough to build 20. I'm also not after an army, but with all the options, I guess I can use a group of 10-20.

 

and: lowest pledge level: This reward is an easy way to pledge an amount that can be applied to the end of the kickstarter, without being confined to the warband, war party, and army in a box pledges. We understand you would like to customize your pledge if allowed, so along with this option, we will be offering an online store after the kickstarter to grab items that are due to be unlocked. Backers will be contacted by email to finalize.

 

I don't know if that includes to option to get only one sprue (that's three models) ... maybe you could ask the creator?

hmm. I only want the female ones (if unlocked) but could use 40 of them. Will keep an eye. I have plenty of beastmen that fill the need of the males.

I backed their first project which failed to fund. This relaunch has a higher funding goal and lower cost per model (the first was $25 for 10 fauns, this is $30 for 20 with a pewter minotaur). The time since the first project was well spent, the page looks a lot better this time around. For anyone interested, the first project had a great updates section, with tons of concept art and early renders. It's a good look behind the curtain for what goes into a project like this. Here's a link to check them out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rgdgaming/plastic-injection-mold-for-32mm-fantasy-faun-minia/updates

 

Hopefully it will fund and hit some stretch goals, the females were a lovely design and the centaur options look good as well. I'm am not sure how you get 20 fauns from sprues of three though...

If you check out the concept art and renders their legs look like they are covered by leaves more than fur. It definitely looks rocky the way they painted them.

 

They just did a nice rework of the main page. They show contents of pledges, and mention that the box of 20 includes male and female figures. The reason only males are shown is that's the only sprue they've produced so far.

I asked if they could offer single sprues as add-ons (which means: 3 fauns), the answer is

 

" It wouldn't be too difficult to me. We can even offer the first sprue we made. "

I hate to have to ask this question, but...

Tim Barry was the sculptor for Tony Reidy at Wargames Factory and Defiance Games.  I like his work, but is there any info out there on how he's distanced himself from those fiascoes?  This is the first time that I've seen his name come up since then.  And since there is a singer also named Tim Barry, it's hard to find any info that doesn't tie this Tim back to Tony.

Tim Barry had invested money with Defiance, along with some of his friends. Tony ran off, and left Tim and the others dry when the Defiance project went under. There is no association there. I hired Tim because he is one of the few sculptors in the US with competency in mold design, and line of draft. Pretty cool guy.  Molder just happens to have some experience working under Wargames Factory, hence the similarities. All legit. I wouldn't have bothered otherwise. 

 

I felt that the second round needed at least one mold to show the quality could be done. 

 

Learned that most of the major houses (always exceptions) have been using freeform software in coordination with CNC, and aluminum tooling. Wyrd made a big deal about it in 2012 in the industry press releases.

I have a Forces of Nature army that has never made it past the Points stage, ditto for Herd.

 

Grump can use these for when he runs Kingmaker again, so they would be played with in both KOW and Pathfinder.

 

I see no downside for diving in. ::D:

 

Backerkit for a pledge manager? Make it easy for meeps to add after the KS is done?

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

        My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.    The first sheet The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full.                      Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?
       
      seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      "The Townbuilder is a web application with which you can create custom 3D printable buildings for Tabletop Games. We provide detailed 3D models in the form of small building blocks that you can then use to create the perfect building for your table. All of our buildings can be printed support free and feature playable interior.
      You can either start from scratch or modify one of our many prepared templates to fit your needs."
       
      This might be a huge step in 3d print files for buildings. With HeroForge, you can design your own miniature and get a printfile for it ... this here allows you to design multi-level buildings and get a printfile for them.
       
      This building was created with the use of the software and you can download it from the KS page for free:
       

       
      Open Beta is already up and running (link on KS page)
       
      I'm very impressed (and a bit happy that there finally is a project from Germany that is THAT awesome).
