Knight of the Dinner Table

Desert of the Dead, fantasy wargaming miniatures!

Recommended Posts

This almost seems like something a certain @Glitterwolf could very well be interested in, assuming there's any room left in the storage areas for more undead stuff...

 

EDIT: Ooooh, this is the one they've been teasing for a little while, huh.... Hmmmmm.  We shall see. ^_^;;;

Thanks for summoning me.

I have pledged for 5 pound ( 1 pound pledge plus 4 pound shipping) for add ons.

 

I don't need the majority of the infantry, I also wonder if they are all the same pose and then they would not be my cup of tea, I want unique looking soldiers.

But I went in for the add ons.

What I find interesting are the Catapult, the lord in the chariot, the resin scenery, the Hydra, the sphinxes, and in the video they teased a giant, a mummified giant snake and a winged T-Rex with Elf Rider.

 

Should the infantry be multipose then I might want the Ushabti things and some of those Elves.

I'm not interested in the Halflings, those little buggers are only meant to be eaten by my wolves.

 

All in all, an interesting project, but too much renders and drawings at the moment.

So I'm in for the minimum and will see how it unfolds.

By the time it's pledge manager time I will make up my decision about what to get.

 

This will be my approach to most kickstarters from now on, including Bones V.

I have been disappointed by a few renders ( Still trying to sell Argent because of that) and te Brexit and China/US trade war are a thing to watch carefully.

Also I'm getting more picky.

 

Since this is an UK based company, I will also see how Brexit stuff will interfere by then. Maybe..hopefully...

 

@Rigel they do have cactusmen!

Maybe you will like it.

They have unlocked an Undead Giant, Chariots and are now approaching an Elven Bolt Thrower in Egyptian Style.

 

The more I look at it, the more I like it all.

Pledged for add ons, basically access to the pledge manager to get what I want.

 

I will certainly go for the War Machines like the Chariot, Catapult, Sphinxes and the Giant.

Probably the Ushabti and maybe more.

 

But I will wait till the pledge manager goes live, this and Bones V might compete for me.

I will do the same there, pledge for a minimum and then see when the Pledge Manager goes live what I will get.

 

Although I love the artwork I want to see minis.

Argent and the Female Frost Giants from Bones IV have teached me to wait till you see as much from the actual sculpt as possible.

i got one of the diversity bundles and a couple add ons in their halfling ks, and they were all recieved in good time, being good quality sculpts, resin and castings.

and ridiculously low prices! A+ will back again.

 

each unit type had several poses.

After talking to the creator and weighing my options, I failed my will save.

Changed my pledge to the Megadeal and an additional 20 for the Liche Lord in Chariot.

 

Meaning I will get it ALL and all the stretch goals that will be added to either the Mummy Army or the Elven Battalion.

This will give me the Legion I need for my Shifting Sands Project.

There are a few stretch goals that are not included, but those are either added in the pledge manager if I want them or not..

 

I figure I can sell off the stuff I don't really need ( MDF terrain, Halflings, Rumbleslam and Adventurers, maybe a few of the duplicates of the slaves and hordes) while getting all stretch goals fro free.

 

Thanks @WhiteWulfe for ambushing my wallet..::P:

 

It's just too much, sphinxes, catapult, Desert Elves with snakes, chariots, Mummies, Zombie Slaves, Giants...

 

 

My girl just laughed when I mentioned it...I wonder why..

Not a problem, had a feeling several things in there would be of interest for the things you enjoy painting, and the themes you've been working on lately ^_^

 

I suspect I'll be signing up for this one too, I just need to figure out which parts I want the most first..

Yes she is!

 

And after calculating the costs for what I would have wanted I figured the Megadeal was the best deal for me.

I can sell some of it and get all I want for a good price.

      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.

      The Grand Duchy of Reme awaits!
      Starting in 2002 Necromancer Games began populating its Lost Lands campaign setting one adventure at a time. The Grand Duchy of Reme is the region home to classic adventures released by Necromancer Games for D20/3.x and Frog God Games for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry and Fifth Edition. 
      More than 10 adventures have brought life to the Grand Duchy of Reme. The Lost Lands Campaign Sourcebook funded in January is expected to be over 700 pages and all of them are full of information. By necessity each region was described broadly, but there are still a wealth of history, politics and other details to be explored, experience and expanded in the Grand Duchy of Reme. 
      The Grand Duchy of Reme is a system neutral hardcover volume designed to be useful for campaigns independent of system preference. Specific details that affect the characters in the Lost Lands there are System Encounter Books. These companion volumes are softcover (or PDF), that contain reference stats for use with the Region book along with detailed encounter tables for the region.
      Additionally, 3 classic adventures previously unavailable for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition are back. These are offered as either softcover add-ons in backerkit or as free stretch goals in PDF (see reward sidebar).
      Mock-up of Grand Duchy of Reme. Final release will differ slightly The city of Reme itself is ancient, with world-spanning trade — the eternal citadel of the Loreclans, where the ashes of legendary barbarian kings reside. This land lies near the slow collapse of the nearby Empire of Foere, and the rise of Bard’s Gate to the East. The Rhemish watch these events with cold eyes rather than concern, for they live in vast regions that devour invaders. Their land is eternal; their people can be forced back to the plains, but in the plains they can abide for as long as need be. They are — as a people — the ultimate hunters. The fall of Foere is like the fall of an antelope upon the plains; the rise of Bard’s Gate is little more than the stepping-up of jackals before the body. The Grand Duchy of Reme simply waits and watches — for Reme is the dwelling-place of the world’s wolves.
      Reme is a unique fantasy civilization whose structure is determined by the one overriding fact of its geography — the country is a vast, grassland plain. The realm is dominated by the culture of the ancient Loreclans: the urbanized and settled ones, and the nomadic clans of the interior. The Loreclans owe a certain fealty to the Dukes of Reme, who are the final arbiters of the ancient law of the plains, but between the Loreclans and the Dukes there are also the mysterious Pashtars: arbiters, judges, and mediators who roam the plains where their service takes them.
      The city of Reme, of course, is one of the wonders of the world of the Lost Lands, home of powerful spell-casters and perhaps the greatest mercantile and war fleets of the Crescent Sea. It is also, however, steeped in the culture of the vast plains of the interior. It is a place where assumptions are dangerous, for it is no standard fantasy environment — it is a culture that will be entirely new and foreign to your players, a place to truly explore as well as adventure.
