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

Not a bad thing at all. Merely an observation.

I haven't backed any of their previous projects, but this one might get me.  I'll have to do more research once it goes live.

I was pretty happy with the resins I got from them, and I got the early resin Funeral witch when they released it last spring.. came in a nice wooden box with an assembly sheet

I really need to stop looking at this one, I'm going to be so disappointed when most of the minis end up PVC only.

It's Awaken Realms. They're pretty much all going to be pvc if past experience is anything to go by :(. Lovely sculpts. Not so lovely production values. In my experience the large miniatures were pretty gorgeous but the human sized figures were less so (skinny limbs & weapons, mould lines running down a face or visible seams along an arm etc).

They've said there's going to be a resin option for a few minis in the pledge manager, unfortunately they haven't said which ones.

It's worth going in for a $1 to get in the PM.. thats what I had to do for the resins I got from them in a previous KS..  Tainted Grail was lacking in resin options so I'm glad it was only for $1

I ended up interested in this one as a actual game, so I'm in for base game + monster set (some of those monsters are wacky enough that I want to own them, even if the final versions are not that great).

I'm in for now, but still need to do some research.  Have to say that a stretch goal gap of $375,000 is pretty extreme for that one Harpy miniature.

Hopefully it's just an attempt to not run out of stuff before the campaign ends, there's already been a few odd gaps like that $250k for a box one.

 

Honestly, I wish more companies would go down the Middara route and just do a stretchgoal a day regardless (although I know that's not a popular opinion).

I agree.  I'm enjoying the Middara campaign quite a bit.  With Awaken Realms (and CMON), I've always gotten the feeling that they set the stretch goal gaps based on how quickly they are gaining money.  And this one in particular, they didn't even tell us what the gaps were until they were FAR past some.

Sadly we appear to be in the minority. 

Discussions I've seen elsewhere about Middaras campaign have been full of people complaining about how boring it's been, to the point where some were considering pulling their pledge.

I just don't get the whole "Kickstarter as entertainment" thing.

I understand Kickstarter as entertainment. I follow some projects as entertainment. 

 

I don't really decide to back or pull out of a project based on that, though.  Unless I just want to pay $1 for updates.

I'm finding Etherfields rather dull.  And I get the idea of a narrative gameplay experience, but I think I'd rather just read a book.

      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.

      About
      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
      Red Belle 
       Blue Belle 
       Yellow Belle
