Hi, my name is Raffaele Stumpo and this is my second KS campaign so let me tell you something about me and my work. I work as a sculptor in the fantasy miniatures, sci-fi and board games industry since 2003. My passion for the fantasy world grew more and more when I was a child. At some point, it became my job. I think my enthusiasm shines vividly in my creations. Thanks to my dedication, I won many industry awards and dozens of Golden Demon, and the following Best of Show: Grog 2016, and Grog 2017.

If you want take a look to my profile at CMON site.

In 2008, I started a collaboration with several miniatures studios for the production of fantasy football teams. I worked on dozen of teams, mastering skills and techniques, until I became worldwide known. I prepare my models one by one, that is why they are unique and this is the main reason people appreciate their quality. Everything is handmade. I collaborated in many successful Kickstarter campaigns as a sculptor Designer and as a Guest:

- Galaxy Defenders - The Earth Strikes Back! boardgame;

- Galaxy Defenders - Co-op Sci-Fi Miniature Board Game;

- Sword & Sorcery - Ancient Chronicles;

- Bull Warriors: Chaos Dwarfs for Fantasy Football;

Dwarves: Team Legends

I've always loved the Dwarves... Their culture, their strength, their pride! 

I always chose the Dwarves character in every role playing game I joined, video game or board game.

So, what best opportunity to show my love for the Dwarves than my own sculpting project?

From this premise is born "Dwarves: Kings and Legends"

A set of 28-30 mm scale miniatures of Dwarves, compatible with all the major game settings and all convertible to Fantasy Football.

All the models are completely hand sculpted.
 

I hope you will like them as much as I enjoyed making them!

Raffaele Stumpo

I don't care about having lots of dwarves, as they don't get much play in my Pathfinder games, but that one with the rifle is super tempting...

 

Edit - I'm in for the Early Bird, but we'll see how funds sit when the KS gets to its end and how stretch goals have worked out.

Wow.

 

Just how much flatmodelism can you fit into one project?

You’d have to ask Stonehaven.

 

It’s okay. I can say that. I like Stonehaven.

I like Stonehaven too. I don't mind flatmodelism in general but I do when there seems to be too much of it in one place. One problem that comes with flatmodelism is people positioning models badly on bases because of the flat horizontal plane. I've literally seen units of archers advancing sideways with their bows pointed directly away from the enemy because some idiot had bases with a non diagonal slot and insisted on having it go from side to side instead of forwards. It happened against more than one opponent as well.

 

I like these models too but then I look at the artwork and notice how different angles have been squashed into a flat horizontal plane (to make it easier to get them out of the mould) and wish the original poses had been kept. Take the berserker, for example. His bristling moustache has been lengthened and smoothed down so that it doesn't stick out. Or the mechanic/engineer who's left arm was going somewhat diagonally forwards in the art and now is just sticking out sideways. I don't want to pick apart every tiny detail because I do think these are nice sculpts. I just wish they could be a bit better.

HQ resin (look in the pledge amounts)

 

I had to do a through search for that. You'd think he'd put that in the actual text.

      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.

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      What are GOAT Dice?
      Polyhedral 20 sided dice that produce a visual swirling effect when rolled. The effect is akin to animation or holographic. Don't believe me? Watch the video!
      Handmade and Artisanal. 
      Each GOAT Dice is produced by hand by one person(me). The process takes 4 days total with many overnight curing processes. The dice are made from resin and secret proprietary ingredients to create the visual effect. 
      Are these dice fair?
      The #1 question asked. The truth is, I don't know, but I think so. I've rolled these dice hundreds of times to shoot the very videos you see here as well as having played with them and they don't seem to be unfair based on my experience. They cannot be tested by the infamous salt water trick because they sink due to their higher than normal weight and density.
      They roll just like any other D20 with one small difference. The inertia from the spinning core causes a drama moment at the end of the roll, sometimes the inertia is strong enough to make the dice flip one more side and other times the inertia is not strong enough and it does a bounce back. This does not effect the randomness, but can create tension. 
      Shipping.
      I've done shipping like this, on a good month working full time I can make 300 total GOAT Dice, so I've split that in half and adjusted the shipping accordingly. The early backers, the first 150 dice, I am expected to get out before the end of December and with any luck delivered before Christmas. Then I batch them into 3 months (450) for each quarter of 2020, so if you miss early backing then your delivery will be targeted for end of march, if you miss March, end of June and so on. Best case scenario all dice are shipped in half the time allotted. When one reward tier is out of stock, another will be added with +3 months on expected delivery. 
       
      GOAT Admirer $1
      You like what you see and want to support this project. You can adjust your pledge at anytime and choose a reward. If you adjust your pledge for a reward, I will do my best to place you in the correct shipping timeline based on your time of pledging. If you want dice, best practice would be to back one of the other tiers. 
      Petting Zoo GOAT $25
      You will receive a single GOAT Dice of your choosing.
      Mountain GOAT $45
      You will receive two GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $22.50 for additional GOAT Dice up to 4, if you want more than 4 you are upgraded to GOAT Shepherd. (you may choose the same color twice or more)
      GOAT Shepherd $95
      You will receive five GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $18.00 for additional GOAT Dice, no maximum. (you may choose the same color twice or more)

      Midlam always has some very nice sculpts, great castings and timely delivery ... and I do not have enough Hobgoblins ... (i.e. less than 20).

      Tim Prow, Chaz Ellitott ... do I have to say more?
       
       


       
      And lots more ... this is a bad time with Reaper Bones and lots of other interesting projects at the same time. Probably the first time I will take full advantage of every "pledge $1 now and rest in pledge manager" offer possible.
