Midlam: Cult of the Moon Goddess

Recommended Posts

Posted on the off chance that there's any forumites that still haven't discovered Midlam's Kickstarters...    

 

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/cult-of-the-moon-goddess/description

Story

Alberon is a vast and ancient world, with many unknowable mysteries, whether that be in the depths of the earth, across exotic lands and the very heavens themselves. There are thirteen major moons that may be seen in the night sky at different times, and their behaviour, phases and conjunctions are oft studied for omens and portents by astrologers and diviners. Some moons are worshipped as deities in their own right.

One of the most powerful and ancient moon cults, with devotees in many of the lands and city states which once formed the Old Empire, is the Cult of the Moon Goddess. Little is known of this cult, for it is highly secretive.  What is known is that they worship only one of the moons of Alberon's skies, the old moon.  This moon is said to be able drive men mad and grant great powers to those it favours, when it is full.

The Cult of the Moon Goddess is not proscribed in Midlam, although in some cities it has attracted heavy sanctions, which has resulted in the cult directing it's wrath on the often patriarchal governments.  But what the cults greater motives are, whether good or ill, it is difficult to say, for their inner workings and identities are protected by sacred oaths.   But you would be wise not cross their path...

Cult of the Moon Goddess

A collection of twelve 28mm cultists, for all of your fantasy adventures, from Midlam Miniatures.

Welcome to our third Kickstarter to cover some of the strange and unusual cults that operate within old Midlam town.

NOTE:  We aim to ship this May 2020, not May 2022 as it says in the description.  

We fear the Moon Goddess Cult knows we're onto them and are using their powerful magic against us!

Will there be a Stretch Goal?

We typically announce a modest (and most importantly - achievable without delays!) stretch goal of an extra miniature, a week or so into the campaign. This will be free (with no extra postage) for those who back the full pledge (and anyone pledging for one or two miniatures will be able to choose that miniature as one of their reward miniatures).

Another interesting Midlam Kickstarter.

 

Most of the time sets of cultists do not interest me, sure I may want one to three of the sculpts but I know I will not use 12 sculpts of dagger holding Ku Klux Klan nuts. But this set looks like many will work as not just cultist but as normal priestess, and devout followers.  Plus I love the inclusion of #12 one does not find minis in a kneeling pose often.

I can always use more cultists.  How do these look next to Reaper figures?  

 

Midlam's are more 'true 28mm scale' so they will be slightly smaller than the average Reaper metal minis of the same gender and race. 

Can't remember if I've ever seen a comparison picture, though.

[Damnit! Midlam is making another desirable KS.]

 

These cultists look really interesting in their simplicity.

 

With the right colour scheme, they can be a dark blood cult who need to consume my heart, or a righteous group of nuns about to send you off on your holy quest.

 

Male cultists always look too angry, or too happy.

I wonder if I had two of #10 and painted her in stone colors and put a stone or wooden beam/header over them if it would make a great entrance to a temple or drinking hall?

Are these metal, resin, plastic? I looked at the KS page but I don’t see the material listed anywhere ...

      “I’m the last one... and now a silent cloak of darkness has fallen on the small vault in which I found shelter a few days ago! I thought I’d be safe here for a while. But that has turned out not to be true as danger lurks everywhere and nowhere all at once... However, I am the last… and the improvised torch I had made with a scrap of wood and some fabric from my clothes has started to flicker... I’m thus truly the last, and the shadows dancing to the rhythm of the flames across these cracked walls will soon give way to a cold and immobile void! Until then, I’m taking advantage of the final glow of my torch to write these few lines in the small booklet that’s never far from me... I am the last survivor of the mad expedition to this lost, nay, damned city… yes, as in a few hours the sand will have soaked up even the last drop of the blood now flowing from my leg, which was crushed by a large boulder, which I neither have the strength nor the will to move. I’m stuck here and condemned to remain here for eternity, or at least until my final breath... It’s my unbound pride which has led me to this desperate situation with no end possible other than this atrocious and pointless death... yet things started out so well... I had finally discovered the famous City of the Sands, and I naively believed that History would remember my feat as well as my name... the truth is much more cruel! I remain alone in the silence of the night… slowly agonizing... I am… the last… the last!”
      For this fifth Kickstarter campaign, THM has been burning the midnight oil and is proud to introduce a whole new line: DESERT.
      A complete line of new products. .STL digital versions to print at home.  The possibility to get the All-In box and all Stretch Goals PAINTED.  Perfectly scaled for 25 to 32 mm miniatures or simply for the pleasure of collecting, these sceneries will answer to the most demanding among you. THM terrain pieces are cast in the best resin available on the market making them robust and modular.
      For this range, THMiniatures uses pressure casting, which totally suppresses bubbles  and displays the smallest details of these finely-sculpted pieces.
       
      Mat from PWorkWargame.com On the right you will find different pledges. Each pledge level has the cost and what items are included.
      With the  exception of the DESERT ALL-IN, the PREMIUM and the 3D pledges, it is not necessary to immediately choose your items when you pledge. THMiniatures will send an access to the pledge manager once the campaign has been finished. This ensures that you can still pick items that will get unlocked during the campaign!

      Looks interesting. Though i dont really have $95 or $120 to throw at it right now. 
       
      The Hero minis are said to be 35mm - 40mm. The minion monsters look pretty cool. Apparently its based on some digital game, but i have no actual experience with that. Just think the minis look cool.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
