Mine arrived today too. Sucked up most of my attention. I was able to play a bit with stuff at lunch. The sorceress on volocigator is pretty awesome... though I managed to break her so I converted her

Greenstuffworld Roller pins, I have cobblestone, Greek, Egyptian, Aztec and Plain. ( the latter is for flattening the putty/clay before you apply a motif) These are awesome!   Some

Actually mine came in the mail today, so no tracking info for my order was ever emailed   But at least it came to the right address

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.

      I'm happy to see they've launched a 2nd KS, as I missed out on the first one.
      Here's the blurb from the Kickstarter, which is live and already funded here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/292543184/wallhalla-2/description
       
      Hey, everyone! We're Ill Gotten Games, and we're back for another round of Wallhalla, the modular, 3d printable miniature display shelves!
      We're kicking this new series off with a Dangerous Dungeon theme that comes in two available styles:

       Classic: (left) the original format found in Series 1, optimized for miniature display. Classic shelf units also include versions with recesses for standard round bases (20mm, 25mm, 32mm, 40mm, 50mm, 60mm, and 70mm).
       Wall Sprawl: a new, terrain-style take that lets you build vertical dungeons and play on your wall space! (It works great as a display as well, especially if you want even more of a diorama look.)
      Both of these sets are 100% compatible with one another and with any of the sets from Series 1. This campaign is for digital STL files, not finished, physical products, and you'll need access to a 3d printer to make them. All of our Wallhalla designs:
      print 100% support free and are optimized for FDM machines!
      assemble with durable, built-in slide-fit connectors, and don't require glue!
      can be configured (and reconfigured) into whatever build suits your fancy!
      are easy to paint!

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      A new Kickstarter that may otherwise go under your radar.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/star-schlock-astros/star-schlock-astroguards-miniatures?ref=project_link

      Very entertaining 70’s/80’s nostalgia aesthetics.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      RPG Sidequest Decks
       
      Ending soon. Card decks, each with a side quest. Pretty straightforward.
