Etherfields is a new major miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms. We call this totally different BG experience a Dream Crawler – you will dive into surreal and artistically crafted world and follow one of a kind co-op / solo campaign adventure for 1-4 players. Everything you do will change the strange rhythm of the Etherfields dream world, where even the wildest fantasy is possible.

Gameplay created by the Board Game veteran Michał Oracz (author of This War of Mine: TBG, Neuroshima Hex or The Edge: Dawnfall and many others), will test not only your logical skills but also your intuition, deduction, and emotional intelligence. Develop your character from scratch using advanced deck-building, travel through the dream-world map and delve deeper into chosen locations.

Can anyone comment on the quality of their minis?

 

This is the second of their Kickstarters I've been tempted by, but I'm always weary of what boardgame minis will actually end up looking like.

I backed The Edge and Nemesis. For both, the depth of detail seemed good, but there is a decent amount of flash to clean up. I'm happy with the quality, found it comparable to recent CMON plastic, albeit with more flash.

I certainly don't have mine. I can't speak for anyone else, but they're overdue like balls. :/

And I'm not sure what's going on. I've been assured they're on the way, but so far... nada.

Did AR release any large-sized miniatures in their boardgame KS?

 

IIRC, AR had some resins (one large resin of a statue in their This War of Mine KS), so mebbe they'll offer resin versions again. Shoot them a message.

 

I have the This War of Mine expansion, and the miniature details are softer than CMON.

 

Here're the prototypes from the FB page.

Blimey. I got my core box months ago. Still waiting for the expansions/2nd wave. The quality of their big miniatures is okay but the detail on their human sized figures is somewhat shallow or lacking. Something's not translating from the initial sculpts they show off to the final production samples they proudly display (and they seem to be totally fine with this). That being said the games they make are quite fun. If you're backing a Awaken realms project for the miniatures - don't. If you're backing it for the gameplay then by all means back and enjoy :).

 

Aku - Chan. I don't know if we're allowed to post videos here but I'll PM you with a link to a reasonably fair video review of some of their miniatures.

This one now has a start date:- 16th July.

 

Digging through their Facebook, it appears that the original plan was to do a small Kickstarter to create some of the minis in resin, then do another one later in the year for the game itself. But now they're just going to do the one Kickstarter and offer resin minis in the pledge manager.

 

So that's my pledge sorted out, unfortunately it sounds like they're only going to be doing the bigger minis with a resin option, so I'll probably miss out on some cool stuff like the Thorn Knight:-

Now that figure looks very Flower Knight from Kingdom Death doesn't it?

There's a definite KD vibe to the line in general, I think.  And that's not a bad thing at all.

I agree. And with the boxes, and art cards, and the pinups, etc. I dont mind it at all, either. I like this company. :)

      It is time to sharpen thy shovel once again! Shovel Knight makes his auspicious return to Kickstarter in Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels! Based on the hugely successful crowdfunded video game and made in close cooperation with Yacht Club Games, Shovel Knight: Dungeon Duels  is a competitive side-scrolling dungeon crawler for 1-4 players.  Players compete as different colored Shovel Knights to shovel out  justice in spades against the evil Order of No Quarter all while trying  to grab the most treasure to prove that they are the one true Shovel  Knight! 

       

      the relaunch offers a more expensive 3D option shown above, and a cheaper 2D version with card standees in place of the plastic minis for those that prefer it

      I didn't see this listed so:

      I received an engineering sample of the product today. They're made of hard gray injection-molded plastic, my guess would be ABS from its hardness and density. The floor and wall ties fit together tightly, though it takes a bit of effort that likely would wear at paint on those surfaces had they been painted. Due to response from earlier sample recipients, the production tiles will be slightly larger than the samples.

      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.

      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      Hello everyone,
      A warm welcome to our latest Kickstarter called Cyber Belles!
      These fairies have survived the eons and have adapted to modern times. We've placed them in an apocalyptic setting where mankind has all but destroyed the world and... itself! The fairies have evolved and have adjusted to the needs necessary to survive in this dangerous place! 
      The campaign will help us fund the production of three 75mm miniatures and maybe something else... which is small... and cute... ;) 
      The campaign is about three 75mm scale miniatures. Red Belle, Blue Belle and Yellow Belle.
      The artwork
      Red Belle Blue Belle Yellow Belle Note: the sculpts are a little bit different from the artwork shown. We mostly chose to do this to make them a little bit more realistic and also to make sure that the casting were strong enough in the end.
      The artwork
