I was just perusing the Pledge Manager, and saw this under the Power-Ups.  I don't recall having seen anything about it previously.

The knight on the right looks like a brother in arms to mini 335 from the Dungeon Dwellers expansion.

 

Well. I want that. Okay, mostly for the dragon and the knight, but.. I want that.

Yeah, I like the mini's. Seems a bit overpriced compared to some similar sets in the power-ups. 

(Demonic Legions has 1 Large and 6 Mediums for $12; this has what appears to be 1 Large and 3 Mediums for $10.) Not overly so, but just enough that I might not get it. At $8 I'd absolutely get it, and might even at $9.

 

The three mediums will end up totaling $10.47 at retail, so you are basically getting the dragon for free... So still a deal, but not as good a deal as some other things.

Do we know anything about the size of that dragon?

 

As far as I know, we haven't heard anything about this aside from the fact it showed up in the PM. 

 

But, the dragon does look like it is an old metal mini they are transitioning to Bones. Maybe someone recognizes the sculpt, or even has it?

 

Edit: Found the sculpt: SKU 03350, Young Forest Dragon.

In pewter it retails for $17. Don't know if others can guesstimate the size based off of that.

It's the Young Forest Dragon (SKU: 03350). No

idea how large it actually is, though.

As the Great and Wiise All-seeing Griffyn, and the only[?] remaining reader of Bryangles, I can tell you the metal one is between 2 and 3 inches tall. (The outboard digit on its left side fore-claw is right at 26mm from the deck; scale from there.)

luckily i can pass on that power up, i've never been a big fan on most pewter dragons, even transitioned to Bones. They're just so...flat, usually. I love the new sculpts for Bones partly due to their much more dynamic poses and curving wings haha

 

i saw most pewter dragons, because i like Blightfang and a few others of the larger pewter dragons despite their flattened wings and poses

Ah! That's the one that was an homage to an old pewter mini from... some board game I'm forgetting the name of. That puts Dungeon Dwellers at 49 mini's, IIRC. On a per-mini basis, it is the best value outside of Core in this KS. 

Edited by ksbsnowowl
49 mini's now; there were 48 originally

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
