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...

Their legs painted look more like stone to me, than fur.

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. "

That's pretty cool. I'll keep an eye on this.

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?

      A little more than 48 hours left for this one, I think it looks really cool.

      Kamigakari: God Hunters is a tabletop role-playing game set in modern-day Japan that combines centuries of Japanese mythology with a modern-day setting and urban fantasy action. You play as a God Hunter, a being wielding supernatural strength, magical abilities, and reality-warping spiritual powers. Your mission is to protect an unsuspecting populace from evil beings known as Aramitama, and to prevent the supernatural from leaking into the public eye.
      Originally, the game was released in Japan by Arclight Games on November 2013 as Legendary Arms RPG Kamigakari, to great popularity. In January 2017, a text-only fan translation appeared on the internet, exposing Kamigakari to the attention of English-speaking RPG fans world wide, and creating a thriving fanbase that continues to grow to this day!
      Serpent Sea Games is a team of experienced RPG translation and development professionals, including the creator of the fan translation, who have licensed Kamigakari from the creators at Arclight Games for publication in English and want to bring the game officially to Western audiences.
        But we need your help to bring this book into existence!
      The Game
      The world of Kamigakari features a distinctly seinen action anime  and style to it. With crazy abilities and flashy powers, it's an over-the-top world where you can battle kaijus, giant robots, gods and demons all under the same umbrella. The system is designed to keep interactions as simple and intuitive as possible, for an easy pick-up-and-play. Kamigakari splits its play up into "scenes", which are short, episodic and will often split the focus onto individual players. It's a different experience compared to western systems that often assume the party is always together, which allows for more varied and engaging character focus and development.
      So what is a God Hunter? A God Hunter is a person who, through one means or another, has gained supernatural powers by possessing a shard of a legendary weapon, relic, suit of armor, or maybe even the crystallized soul of a legendary hero. These powers can be anything from a master of the sword or magic, transforming hero, a living avatar of flame, or the ultimate hacker. Instead of a familiar class-based system, Kamigakari uses its own character generation called Styles, which lets you mix and match your power sets to create a gun-slinging samurai, a chainsaw-wielding magical girl, a hacker who codes his magic into existence, or a hunter who stalks his victims through the shadows.
      And it's not just limited to your class: weapons and gear are utilized under the Arms system, a mechanic where a base weapon is upgraded over time by using materials or spending gold. Two basic swords, in the hands of two different god hunters, can end up very different weapons after extensive modification!
      An average God Hunter on a normal day. Does being a God Hunter mean that you hunt gods? Of course it does! With concepts rooted in Shintoism and traditional Japanese folklore, a God Hunter is tasked with tracking down dangerous beings known as Aramitama - a dark god that is born and grows in power by devouring the souls of its victims. Aramitama come in many forms - from recognizable Japanese icons like oni and tengu, mythical beings like the Pegasus or Griffin, to eldritch monstrosities made of gnashing teeth and glowing orbs. Upon defeating an Aramitama, God Hunters can use their remains to create stronger Regalia - magical weapons and equipment, in order to face even even more powerful Aramitama. It's not just a fun gameplay loop, either: These creatures threaten the sanctity of innocents and the world in their lust to reach their ultimate form, the Avatar of Ruin, a true god of destruction capable of ending the world. It's up to the God Hunters to prevent that!
      An Aramitama awakens. Kamigakari utilizes the unique Numen Dice pool. Numen Dice are resource wherein you roll a set of dice and use it to pay for abilities or change the outcome of a roll. There's many ways change, swap and spend dice. Players must be careful how they manage their Numen Pool to both survive the battle and save the perfect set of Numen Dice to activate their ultimate abilities!
      We'd like to support this game far into the future, and plan on translating and releasing supplements if financially viable. Arclight Games has also requested the creation of original content exclusive to the western release, but that can probably wait until we have a few expansion books finished, we're only mentioning it now in the interests of full transparency.

      and much more. You can also get character models and army units à la carte   (that's what I'm going to do). I backed his halflings and was extremely happy with what I received.

      A gang of ten 28mm bandits, thugs and ruffians for all of your fantasy miniature games.
       

       
      Already funded in less than 2 hours.
       
      I really like what Midlam generally does and I happen to need bandits, so i’m probably going to get them all 10 (well, 11 as they always add another mini as a stretch goal). They also allow people to get 9 other bandits from their range as an add-on.
