As i've said, I failed my will save the moment they said they were offering a new kickstarter.  Hopefully, i can pick up some additional pieces from the last KS (I know i can just buy them, but i never think about it unless they are running a kickstarter) because I love the badgers!

I like the Badger Mage's personality so much I absolutely had to put it in my initial order with them! 

 

...Which reminds me, I really should put another order in relatively soon... After the Kickstarter of course.

My favorite is still the badger mercenary.  I need to ask and see I'd they still have any metal ones left.  That and the hare warrior.  There is just something about that expession that says 'bring it on' I can't resist.

 

I really can't wait to see what this ks has to offer!

We've only got them in resin now - sorry!
 

We've got a link to the project page now - the project isn't live, but there's a 'Notify Me' button there, so you can get notified when we launch, if you like!  

 

KS 'Notify' Link

 

And here's another beastie:

Such is life, I understand the decision and I will probably order another to see the differences but he did make such a weighty piece.  I will certainly hit the notification button.  Your kickstarters are always worth supporting.  Keep up the great work!

(And if you find a dusty old metal badger or dragon. Keep me in mind :rolleyes:.  Mom always said it never hurt to ask...)

I'm guessing that the 'weighty piece' is the main reason it's only available in Resin now. 

Casting in Metal, particularly when the casting job is outsourced, is expensive. And having a bunch of them sitting on a shelf ties up a lot of money.     

Resin casting is slow, but can be done in-house easily, and on more of an 'on demand' schedule.

I agree, what's this talk of a dragon.  Ears are perked rather curiously, or as some would ay... I'm listening intently... Or whatever the last word in that saying is supposed to be (you have my undivided attention?) ^_^;;;;

The dragon's an old model, from our second Kickstarter, back in the mists of time... I don't personally like it much, TBH! I reckon I could do a much better job now. But I'll give the moulds a spin when I get the chance, and see if they're still OK.

The badger in metal was not really a cost thing - as a big (113g) lump, it used to overheat moulds rapidly, and often suffered significant pitting. So getting decent quality reliable casts meant going to resin, and having done that, it made sense to do it for all the bigger models. But while we can do metal casting in-house, proper resin work is tricky, and something we outsource.

Hey don’t knock yourself. That was a beautiful dragon. 


But, by all means, do another dragon :;):

      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.
