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.

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.

      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.
      First Legion Historical
      First Legion Fantasy
      First Legion Facebook
      First Legion Instagram  
      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.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      About
      -Hi everyone, this time I propose you a Fishing Village:
      5 Houses   7 Footbridges  1 Bridge -A few years ago I did something similar for video games 
      here you can see the video: and I've thought of creating models suitable for 3D printing.
      -The models are in scale for 28 mm miniatures and are divided into components to be assembled without glue only joints.
      -Doors, windows, nets and winches are printed separately.
      -Each house is playable inside, with working doors and on the ground floor there is a fireplace with the pipeline out.
      -The prints you see below have been made with an Ender 3, layer 0.2 mm, infill 5%, Pla Geetech white, the models have been designed to have as few supports as possible, I printed them with an overhang of 80 ° -85 °, support Z distance 0,3 mm.
      -I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 20x20x20 cm (for this scale).
      -Paint with cans and acrylic colors.
      -Each house needs about 500-800 grams of filament.
      -I put hooks scattered on the houses to attach cordage or oil lamps 
      -I remind you that only digital models will be sent to you, NOT PHISICAL ONES.
      * Good fishing ... *
      By removing the base you can have houses for a land village.
