Knight of the Dinner Table

Desert of the Dead, fantasy wargaming miniatures!

Recommended Posts

I so wish I’d got in on this KS in time. (And their previous one!)

 

Halflings are my favorite PC race and it’s so hard to find good, interesting minis for them, especially sculpted like this rather than in their hideous 4e/5e forms.

I wasn't going to buy this, but I'm only on book 4 of the Mummy's Mask AP

 

Mike has been busy on the MDF side of things and completed the tomb dungeon set! I snapped a quick pic for this week and we can look at it in more detail soon.

Did you contact the creator for a late pledge? Seems like a friendly enough guy.

Unless it's changed in the past few days, there should be a link to where you can do late pledging on the Kickstarter page. 

 

Edit: it's the button labeled "pre-order now"

^ Oh thanks! Not being too familiar with Kickstarter, because it didn’t say “Late Backer” I wasn’t sure if “Pre-order” meant the same thing or if those were store prices or something. 

 

I’ll get onto it now.

Hmm That Halfling Sorcerer looks a lot older than his preview art had led me to believe he would. I’m a bit disappointed about that. He looks well sculpted though. As do they all.

Another thing that kinda annoys me about the designs in this campaign is that, other than a few rags here and there on their bodies, there aren’t enough differences between the mummies and the skeletons. 

 

Mummy miniatures seem to be a lot rarer than the ubiquitous skeleton ones so I wish their faces were more covered to distinguish them.

 

No complaints about the craftsmanship on display though.

^ That Titan is indeed a showstopper. 

 

The more I look at that Halfling Sorcerer, the more annoyed I get. He looks like a totally different character to the one in the preview art AND the initial render. Why did they change him from a young man to yet another “wizened old male sorcerer” figure when the market is already flooded with miniatures of that archetype?

 

I’ve sent an email complaining about this change but, as a late backer, I can’t leave a comment in the comments section. Can I request/suggest that anyone who is similarly disappointed with this change leave a comment there?

I'm kind of glad for the larger images of that titan...  I hate to say it, but it's gone from OMG MUST HAVE to "that's a neat sculpt".  Maybe it's the undead bit, ah unno.  Maybe it's me looking at finances too and going "oh gawds, I'm going to have to trim a number of ideas aren't I"...

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.

      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.
