I backed one of Annie’s previous kickstarters, the one with all the forest animals including beavers and moose and bears (oh my).

I also bought several of her female minis and the sculpts are quite nice and the castings were great quality. Very sharp and clean. I’m very happy with what I’ve ordered and if finances allowed I would back again.

I've had a couple of her ks and was happy with both. One was also super quick. One-ish person operation so things can get bogged down, but never stops communication.

No fair!   

 

I was trying to save a little money this month, and now this...   

(I need to buy some more shelving to store more minis, and that costs money.)

I'm backing this one - only have good things to say about the samurai kickstarter. Distinctive models, good quality, realistic scope (ie not thousands of stretch goals) and great turnaround and delivery. Plus sweets, teabags, badges and Guinea pigs.

I've backed this.

 

I backed three previous KSs ("My Last Sunrise - Gothic Horror 28mm Miniatures", "Freyja's Wrath: Dark Age & Fantasy 28mm Shieldmaidens" and "Onna-bugeisha and the Women of Feudal Japan").  Annie has been good at communicating with the backers, especially when there are delays.  (Freyja's Wrath was delayed due to reasons beyond her control and she was always communicative and kept us backers up-to-date.  Many KS project teams could learn from her example.)

Apologies for the quiet, I've been working at UK Games EXPO in Birmingham, 3 days of super hard work.

There's one more day left, I'm typing this from the hotel before I head back there for the final day, so if you're there and haven't come over yet, here's the map, we're on Sarissa Precision's stand.

So since the last update.....

We unlocked Norbert!
D71VtDiXkAAHbox.jpg

So he's automatically added to the All-in pledges (and two for the....two of everything pledge) and anyone else can add him for £8. He's a delightful little scamp, with his garlic, beers, sleeping bag, cardigan, keg.....

THEN!

...THEN!
We unlocked STICKERS!

More Martin Whitmore delights!
D8CNSG7XsAE0oYe.jpg

If you want any extra, just increase your pledge by £1 (and in the pledge manager you can let us know which ones you want)
AND THEN.............

(I know, I meant to update last night and the night before, but I pretty much fell into the hotel bed)

PEEGASUS!

IT'S HAPPENING!

PEEGASUS!

D8CNshtW4AIxZUM.jpg

Same with the others, if you're not in an all in pledge you can add these for £8 by clicking the "manage your pledge" button. Or if you are in Pledge #4 or #5 and want.....more.... you can add them the same way. Everyone needs more, they're the best thing to ever grace the tabletop world. Not biased of course.

I've been showing everyone at Expo my lil inked peegasus, it's amazing. Many excite!

WHAT'S NEXT?

The peeg sprite that comes with Thea, Amazon captain, will be added to pledges. Starting at #4 and #5 for the £12,000 mark, but subsequent stretches will roll out to basically everyone getting one. These can't be bought as add ons and will only be available post Kickstarter in the pack with Thea.

I had a cast out at the Bad Squiddo Beers meet up and the "awwwwwwwwwwwww" was immense. So smol! And with such a dinky lil rider! Eeeee!
D8CN5MqX4AAIdAR.jpg

Then.... we have another stretch goal.

You will be able to see it before the campaign ends, it's being sculpted right now......

It has an Amazon AND a Dwarf in it! More info to come on that, but it is going to be....hamazing.

INTERACTIVE STUFFS

I did a little impromptu live video on Facebook the other day just showing off some casts and inking them up so you can see the detail better. There's some cool backstory on Norbert that emerges!

https://www.facebook.com/TheDiceBagLady/videos/303294043879685/

In the coming week I'll be doing more live/interactive videos, such as painting some peegasus. I might try Kickstarter LIVE, even though it's been pretty terrible before, I think it was mostly the fault of the connection at my old place. I reckon we meet at KS Live, then if it all goes to pot we can jump over to Kickstarter. Good plan? I'll let you know in advance, it'll be an evening in UK time, and you'll be able to catch it later on too in case you miss it.

Once I'm back from the EXPO I'll be back on more regular updates and show offs and posts and all that! It's just been super hard as I've been glued to the stand.

Apart from Bad Squiddo beers, our annual meet up, which was a hoot as always! The place was super crowded and we couldn't fit everyone in shot, but here's a chunk!
D8COQREW4AA79R2.jpg

I was passing around a load of master casts, and THEY ALL CAME BACK! HOORAY! And nobody dropped the tiny sprite!

Right I better get up and off to this EXPO.

See you soon, and keep telling your friends!

Annie

      About
       "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."
      -J. R. R. Tolkien
      Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! 
      We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior
      The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 
      From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer
      Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator
      Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord
      The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 
      From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian
      The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.
      Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:
      At $7,500 the Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  
      At $10,000 the Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.
      As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

      Some NSFW minis on the KS page, images not included here
       

      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a medieval fantastic skirmish game in which you direct a Spearhead (name given to your miniatures team). These Spearheads are composed of anthropomorphic animals of 54mm (this is an indicative value, many species are larger).
      The figures are sold unassembled and unpainted.
      It's an ambitious project where you can choose from four different factions from the start. A rules book will detail all phases of the game, as well as equipment, spells and scenarios. A double-sided battle mat completes the game material.
      You can discover the universe and follow most heroes in a novel already available in French (it's a good way to start learning!): Khârn-Ages T1: The Embrasement.
      In KHÂRN-ÂGES, you can modulate your compositions without changing miniatures! Indeed a same figurine can correspond to several LEVELS of profiles, and you can equip it as you wish, you have the possibility to play it with different characteristics while changing its weapons and its equipment, or to have access to many different spells for magicians. KHÂRN-ÂGES is a scenario game, it is not about exterminating your opponent (even if it's feasible sometimes!), but fulfilling your goals to win.
      KHÂRN-ÂGES is a game that only requires a few miniatures to play, so you will not have a huge budget to plan to get started and buy your 500 Krowns of heroes to build your first Spearhead: the cost of recruitment of each mini proposed in this campaign is indicated below each model, it can be modulated by the equipment that will be available in the rulebook.
      This campaign offers you to acquire the figurines, the rules, the play mat to fully enjoy your fun experience from the start. The rules are easy to understand and very permissive, but the level of strategy is very high and will seduce the most demanding players. You can discover the fighting engine on our YOUTUBE channel (with English subtitles).
      Last but not least, KHÂRN-ÂGES is a 100% French game, the entire project is developed in the north of France, 40 km separate the workshop of creation and production of our paper printer.
      To date, after nearly 3 years of development, we are proud to present most of the miniatures that will be available during this campaign, the others are being modeled.
      Rules and profile cards have been tested (by our team and a number of seasoned Briskars players). They are currently finalized and in the process of being formatted.

      If we decide to go through a crowdfunding campaign, it's because this project can not succeed without you!
      TGCM is a modest company but has always kept its commitments and has created a substantial community around its first game, Briskars. However, the costs of such an adventure are much higher than those that allowed us to launch our first game.
      In addition to the design phase, the production and molding of figurines, there are many items related to the creation of a game.
      Your contributions will allow the printing of books and profiles and equipment cards, the modeling, the production and packaging of minitures, the control of the production line in our workshop to guarantee you the best quality and the development (we hope you will reach these levels) of many game accessories.
      The goal we are hoping to reach may seem important, but it reflects the reality of the costs and charges we face.
      Achieving this goal will allow the birth of KHÂRN-ÂGES, not to end our days in the sun!
      We are counting on you all to reach it and bring the world of Safar to life...

      Khârns
      Proud and bellicose, they are the archetype of the warrior people, but they are far from having the same character. Their king gone crazy and paranoid after having tortured his people for too long is on the verge of being overthrown, the nobles are slipping into profit and debauchery at King-Khârns, the capital, and some, like Prince Baudry and his brave Paladins remain upright to the point of wanting to overthrow the established order.
      However, all swear by blood and steel, the secular worship of this people. They have a brutal and organized fighting style, but are distinguished mainly by their diversity of profiles: from the heavy armors worn by paladins to the rapid attacks of the advanced vanguards, they have no real weaknesses except the valor of their fighters. They are the stability that a player preferring to fight back will particularly like.   Size 75mm / Base 50mm   Size 70mm / Base 40mm   Size 65mm / Base 50mm   Size 54mm / Base 50mm
