Recommended Posts

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

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.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      Story
      Introduction Early Bird Exclusive Pledge Levels The Miniatures Stretch Goals Fulfilment Delivery  Hello guys, firstly thank you for taking the time to check out my project; High Fantasy Miniature Collection. 
      The aim of the project is to expand my miniature line into well, an actual line rather than my current 3 offerings. My first 2 projects have been critical in deciding whether the business would be a viable venture, I am very pleased to say that I will continue to chip away at my own tiny little corner of the miniature market. 
      Success with this project will set me up to continue to produce more and more fine scale miniatures for gamers and collectors, as a quite new small business I am heavily dependent on your support to continue forward, I am not a long established business with financial backing, when you back me on Kickstarter you are literally the life blood of Throne Down Games and I cannot express in words what it means to me as a small business, as an artist, as an individual, that you offer me your support. 
      In this project you will find a selection of miniatures for your tabletop gaming, painting and collecting. The miniatures are 32mm fine scale resin with the option to pick them up in the larger scales of 54mm and a select few in 75mm, perfect for those who collect to paint and/or diorama build!
      Going forward a select few will be available in 54mm and 75mm for retail along side the 32mm range.
      I have a huge passion not only for miniatures but high fantasy, I hope you find something you like and perhaps a little bit different in my work than what you typically find in the miniature market! Thank you for taking the time to check out my project and I whole heartedly thank you in advance for any and all support you can offer me.
      Early Bird
      For this project I will be running an Early Bird for the £40.00, 10-4 pledge, the Early Bird will run until midnight the day following successful funding. The Early Bird grants the exclusive Story Teller miniature in 32mm absolutely FREE as a massive thank you for pledging early at this level. 
      EB end Example; If the project funds at 20:00 on a Monday, the Early Bird will close at 23:59 Tuesday.
       Exclusive miniature - The Story Teller
      For this project I have designed an exclusive miniature that will only be available as part of this campaign, this miniature will not be available anywhere else once the campaign has ended.
      This exclusive miniature is FREE in 32mm scale for the 10-4 Early Bird pledge and does not count toward one of your 10 miniature selections as a massive thank you for supporting me at this level. 
      This miniature is available as an add-on or one of your miniature selections for the Build Your Own, 5 for 5 and the standard 10-4 pledge.
      The Story Teller; A theatrical mage who literally brings the pages of their story book to life! Pledges
      I have tried to build the pledges to give maximum scope for customization, from 1 or 2 mini's to complete sets, you choose how you pledge **this can always be changed during the pledge manager phase**
      Build Your Own pledge is subject to a small price reduction from the future RRP, the 5 for 5 and 10-4 pledges are subject to further discount against the RRP and when pledging for stand alone miniatures, on top of the set discounts you can also add additional copies and the larger 54mm and 75mm scale miniatures at a reduced price depending on the initial pledge level.
      All miniatures will be supplied with a simple 25mm flagstone scenic resin base, NPC miniatures will additionally be supplied with a 25mm wooden flooring scenic resin base, all 54mm miniatures will be supplied with the above in 50mm and likewise for the 75mm miniatures.
      Pledge: Build Your Own
      The perfect starting point to pickup a few miniatures you like the look of without the larger financial commitment of set pledges. To build your pledge please add £6.00 per 32mm miniature you would like, and/or £12.00 per 54mm miniature, and/or £26.00 per 75mm miniature. Miniature choice can be selected after the campaign ends through the pledge manager.
      Pledge: KS1 Return Backers
      This pledge is only for returning backers from my first project.
      Pledge: 5 for 5
      The 5 for 5 pledge offers you the choice of any 5 32mm miniatures at the reduced price of £5.00 each. Reduced price add-ons are available for this pledge. Miniature choices can be selected after the campaign ends through the pledge manager.

      Pledge: 10-4
      The 10-4 pledge offers you the choice of any 10 32mm miniatures at the reduced price of £4.00 each. Reduced price add-ons are available for this pledge. Miniature choices can be selected after the campaign ends through the pledge manager.
      Add-ons:
