Artemis 2.0 By Kev White

Recommended Posts

A new kickstarter project from Kev White:

Don't think I shall be backing this myself as I don't do much that is bigger than 54mm.

 

This seems to be happening off Kev's own bat and I don't think Hasslefree is involved. Whether that is a good thing or not I leave to your own judgement.

Well I like the figure, but don't know about the nude version... I'll wait to see if this get closed to the SG cause I think she will look great in armor!

And I find it a little expensive for a single figure :/

While I probably shouldn't considering my 40mm version is just gathering dust unpainted, I'm willing to pledge and see if some armor gets unlocked.

I'm not interested in the nude version(no, I'm not sick or anything... ) so I'm going to just hang around(€1) and wait to see if he produces a nice armored version.

The 40mm is a beautifully sculpted miniature I would have had no use for.  The 75mm is a beautifully sculpted miniature that I have no use for.  If the armored one gets made and is fully clothed and has a spear it would be a fantastic Athena statue in games and setups, but I expect it with still show a little to much for a Athena proxy.  If the actual representation of the Greek goddess Artemis gets done it would also be useful in games and setups.

 

I hope this KS is successful for no other reason than I like to see artists push their talents, but I really do not have the space or money for resin sculpts so my opinion should not really influence Kev's sculpts.

The armored version is funded and almost complete already. There will be a (likely hellenic) draped classical version, if it funds (it's close).

There are reasons besides gaming to enjoy sculpture. I'm happy he's making this one, given how much of the industry has been hamstringed by the needs of gamers (until the last few years, anyway).

Four different versions in progress now; clothed and nude variously armed with sword, spear and bow.

 

Five days to go, I think I will weaken enough to get the "huntress Diana" model.

I like his sculpting but dude messed up one figure from the last KS and despite the repeated tellings of "yeah, we'll fix it", it hasn't been fixed so hard pass. Your customer service is your legacy for good and ill.

Never again after the mess that is STILL his first Kickstarter.

 

No, as he makes very clear if you read the Campaign page; he only supplied sculpts for Hasslefree, he had nothing to do with how the kickstarter was run. And Hasslefree has no part in this project.

"

A number of reasons. 
1. Larger scale miniatures don't tend to do well for us, but this sculpt was just lying around and I felt bad that no one would ever be likely to be able to buy it. 
2. There is a huge backlog of unreleased miniatures already on the production schedule at HF. This little lady is about two years behind the front of the queue and she gets pushed back every time I make something that we know will sell better. 
3. This sculpt was a pet project. I don't see why HF should have to pay for things I haven't been asked to make."

 

Kev is hasslefree so not sure what point you're trying to make. He's doing it independently from the company for numerous reasons but it's the same guy.

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!

      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.

      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!
