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. :)

      Miniatures based on the art from the Fighting Fantasy books. 
      I was an avid fan of the books growing up so I'm definitely in
       





       
      WHEN IS THE KICKSTARTER?
      Our kickstarter release will go live approximately October 16th. It will feature all of the new models and the updated versions of some models with plenty of extras. If you can't attend FFF3 or don't get exactly what you want, then join us on Kickstarter and check out what's on offer.

      WHATS BEING ADDED TO THE RANGE?
      The 10 additional models will be gradually revealed on here and social media in the build up to the kickstarter release. Why not generate a little hype! 

      HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN ITS LIVE?
      If you sign up to our newsletter via www.atlantisminiatures.com, email notifications will be sent during the build up and once we are live.

      WILL THERE BE AN EARLY BIRD OFFER?
      This is something we have always struggled to get right. This time we will have a first 48 hour discount on some of the rewards options.
      There will be no super early bird discounts on this release.

      WHAT ABOUT STRETCH GOALS?
      There will be some stretch goal additions to the Collectors options. We will not be using miniatures as stretch goals in this release. Instead, we have tried to get the prices as generous as possible on box offers. It doesn't feel right to separate some of the release as freebies. Each character from the franchise deserve their own spot in the box, which is why we have priced accordingly on the box offers.

      Risks and challenges
      TAG, are a recognized miniature manufacturer of long standing, In the past 18 years once we commit to a Project, we always complete.
      As such we don't envisage any massive issue with this small ( 6 packs) Kickstarter.
      We have the Original models moulded, master-cast, and in pre-production, ready to move to full production, if and when, full Funding takes place.
      We have our own professional Mail Order facilities, and have completed on over a dozen Kickstarters, for TAG, and for many other small scale mini retailers here in the UK.
      As always, I'm sure there are a few ways we could cluck this up, but we promise that we'll work really hard, to make this a success, and if we don't you can give us a 'basting' on social media.

      About
        Welcome to Monstrous Lexicon - Series 1 Kickstarter. This is a joint project between Bears Head Miniatures, Arcane Library and The Pickled Dragon.  The Monstrous Lexicon is a huge collection of original monsters as well as four new playable races for the 5th edition of the world's greatest role-playing game and this project is the start of a series to bring the creatures form the pages of the Lexicon to your gaming tables or collections. There are also some creatures and characters that are outside of the manual, but I think they compliment the range and will find a home in your games. The miniatures are 28mm scale.
      The miniatures are traditionally sculpted by hand and will be cast in metal or resin, as detailed in their descriptions. Supplied unpainted with a plastic base as appropriate.
      You can pick up a physical or digital copy of The Monstrous Lexicon from the links below, via Amazon or Drive Thru RPG. 
       Amazon USA 
       Amazon UK 
       Drive Thru RPG (Digital copy) 
      The miniatures are sculpted and ready to be cast, this project is to fund the production cost. Chris at Macrocosm Miniatures is an experienced metal caster and the master casting will be complete before the campaign finishes, I will have metal casts to show you in an update. Then the production casting will commence after I've received the details of your pledges.
      You can pledge by selecting one of the reward tiers given. If you require a selection of miniatures, then adjust your pledge total to reflect the total cost of the miniatures you want.
      You will receive a unique coupon code equal to your pledge amount, roughly two weeks after the campaign finishes. I'll provide instructions on how to complete your order via Kickstarter messages and a link to my online store. You will also have the opportunity to add to your pledge from my existing ranges.
      Postage starts at £2 in the UK and £4 rest of the World for 1-2 miniatures and a flat rate of £4 and £6 for 3+ miniatures. This is collected after the campaign finishes via the pledge manager.
      The profits, after Kickstarter, casting and packaging fees are accounted for will be shared between Bears Head Miniatures and The Pickled Dragon.
      The miniatures will eventually become part of my Bears Head Miniatures range, which includes a number of character sculpts, sci-fi  and fantasy themed miniatures..
      Now lets have a look at the miniatures...
      Valravn £4 
      Valravn. Metal miniature £4. The Valravn is a fiendish blend of humanoid and Raven. Long skinny legs carry the creature in a hunched, upright position, while it's torso is covered in disheveled black feathers. 
      The Valraven is a demonic servant, which scours the mortal World in search of the mortally wounded or sick, to steal their souls back to its Masters nefarious needs.
      Valravn is £4 and cast in White Metal.
        Pact Devil £4
      Pact Devil. £4 cast in White Metal Pact Devil, painted example by John Morris. Lurking in the shadows, ever vigilant, a tall handsome man watches his mortal prey. It's victim is vulnerable due to Pride, greed, or desperation and Pact Devil offers an easy solution for a catastrophic price.
      Pact Devil makes a great recurring character, maybe he helps your adventurers out and is keeping a close eye on his property, or maybe he needs the adventurers help in getting a contract signature from a particularly despicable Lord.
      Pact Devil is £4 and cast in White Metal.
        Dwarf Druid £4
      Dwarf Druid £4, cast in White Metal Happy Dwarf Druid £4, cast in White Metal. He's a happy soul our Dwarf Druid, always full of joy at the wonders of nature. He might just have a rare herb or two in his Grove, but he's also possibly the most annoying NPC your adventurers will ever meet.
      Dwarf Druid is £4 and cast in White Metal.
        Dire Honey Badger £4
      Dire Honey Badger £4, cast in White Metal Dire Honey Badger painted example Dire Honey Badger The Chuck Norris of the animal kingdom. No bigger or faster animal ever gives the honey badger crap. If they did, that animal wouldn't have the chance to regret it and this is the Dire version, so a very handy ally for any adventuring druids out there.
      Dire Honey badger is £4 and cast in White Metal.
