First Legion Fantasy Line

Recommended Posts

The problem is ... I know this is a different company, but the whole thing (resins, price, freebie pack etc) reminds me a bit of Raging Heroes and their fiasco - that's of course not objective, even unfair. Purely an emotional thing. But I might be willing to take a chance again (as I said, different company, nothing to do with RH).

In comments, they mentioned 4-5 parts including base for the average orc. So probably nowhere near as bad as the Raging Madness™ TGG2 insanity.

 

Might be moot though. The project might have trouble finding even the extra 10k, let alone enough to actually get to stretch goals, unless they change it to any pledge of $200 or more being eligible for freebies. Because seriously, a lot of hardcore miniatures backers will be vastly more interested in those add-ons than in yet another band of orc warriors.

I am thinking of making a Kobold level pledge and just seeing what happens. There are a number of nice looking minis, but I'm not super interested in buying sets.

That’s kinda where I am with this one. Might just get the mounted undead set.

Jack Needles Will we get dragon renders before the KS ends?

FIRST LEGION Toy Soldiers It's unlikely because the modeling is being worked on for other things such as the Elves. So we'll probably show a few more of those during the KS along with more villagers I believe.

7 piece models if you count the base for most Raging Heroes infantry :P.

 

The unit's fully painted now (the video evidence is out there) but I didn't take any more up to date photos than this. (Horribly camera glare kills so many layers of shading and highlighting :().

I find a very interesting line. Although their selection of sizes for their other lines is a bit strange. I’m likely in for the dwarf set. The Parkinson and Elmore influences are very strong.

I just realized they're that First Legion. I've come across them before, that must've been about 6 or 7 years ago, when I visited a historical miniatures shop near work to get paints (they had the full Vallejo palette before the local fantasy/sci-fi hobby stores expanded beyond not-Nottingham colors).

 

Remembering this prompted me do do a quick search and apparently, they're reasonably popular with German large-scale historicals collectors, so I'd figure the company must know what they're doing on a technical level (material/tooling). I don't think they have much, if any, experience with 28mm though, so I guess the question will be whether they can adjust well to that.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
