Blackstone Heath, the Village Folk: Part 1 : 28mm Medieval / Fantasy Villagers - 48 hours left!

Creator has eight completed miniatures KS, including the Albedo one, if you remember awhile back.


Myself, I backed it because of guys *sitting*. Yes, sitting. It's pretty difficult to find miniatures of people sitting, despite the tavern trope. Everyone's armed with a sword or something, ready to lop your head off. Makes sense in a dungeon, not so when you're talking with the barkeep. Also, this set has guys fighting *unarmed*. Farmers didn't exactly need swords to tend their fields, and it's silly to enter a bar with a pitchfork. Yet, pretty much every generic miniature you see that's up for a fight has some sort of weapon, which works in a dungeon, but doesn't make sense in a tavern. One of the additional sets, btw, is an exorcism, no doubt a reference to the movie. Despite the narrowness of the overall theme, the individual figures can be used in multiple genres.

Anyway, if you've backed one of his previous projects, please let me know what you thought of it!



 I was amazed a year ago to see Evocatus’ project on Kickstarter to digitally sculpt the most animated and believable villagers that I had ever seen. I immediately feel in love with the range, but did not have a high end resin 3D printer. I thought, I bet there are a lot of other gamers like me who would love these miniatures but have not got a resin printer, or would just prefer packs of the miniatures, cast in metal, delivered ready to paint so I contacted the sculptor and agreed a collaboration to mould and cast this lovely range. This campaign is Part 1 or Blackstone Heath: Village Folk and represents about half of the village folk available. If it is popular the remainder will follow is a second campaign latter this year.

Sheep and barrel unlocked!

It's like a barrel of monkeys, except no monkeys and only one sheep.


Pic of the Exorcist set from the LA forums. While the theme is pretty specific, the individual miniatures should be useful for a variety of genres and situations. 

This is the only cleric / monk miniature I've seen not wielding a weapon or cross.

Creator uploaded a YouTube video of the miniatures. Dunno if direct links to YT are allowed, so here's a link to the update of the video :P 



Pugilistic villagers. Guy in dark clothing seems to be taking bets. :lol: Figures should work as generic rioters or ruffians.

SG's unlocked: Sheep, barrel, and dog!

Sally 4th also has a thread on Lead Adventurers of his own town the miniatures come from. Thread includes terrain tips for the crafters!



"Joe, you should use stand on one of these 'base' things instead of sitting on that slimy old log."




Those guys are fighting everywhere!

      Hi everyone!
      My name is David R. Sainz, a sculptor at Adaevy Creations. Welcome to my second Kickstarter campaign.
      In this second trip we will delve into Japanese folklore at the hands of the yokai, enigmatic creatures deeply rooted in the Japanese community. A selection of 8 creatures will form the basic set, which can be used for board games.
      The basic set of this collection consists of:
      Each miniature has its own personalized base. All the miniatures are scaled 32mm and 75 mm with high detail, so you can print it in any scale you want.

      Pretty straightforward, a lady with more or less clothes.
      Introducing "Misa, a Night to Remember"! 
      On our store there is already an alternative version of Misa. In this project we decided to make it with more accessories, and through the objects, a different pose and always ... less dressed!
      She will be available in 75mm as well as 32mm scale, base and fullbody. By pledging you will receive the .STL files (unsupported and pre-supported) once the campaign has ended.
      So Happy 3D Printing everyone!

      They will be as dark as you paint them...
      About the project:
      In this project, I created a set of 14 dark miniatures of creatures and demons all with it's own base. all of these miniatures are test printed on a resin printer and come Pre-supported and will be delivered as digital .Stl files. (Unsupported, supported and the chitubox project files)

      Lots and lots of dragonborn.
      With the release of the most recent D&D book detailing new ways to play dragon-folk characters and even covering dragons themselves in greater detail, I figured people would need some miniatures to compliment their gaming tables! My very first D&D character was a Dragonborn, and I've been a big fan of them ever since, so this is quite a fun project for me to undertake. These miniatures will cover a wide variety of archetypes to suit any class, and if stretch goals are met, even more options will open up! Backers will receive 14 pre-supported miniature STLs (DIGITAL FILES ONLY) at 32mm scale, which will be added to their Myminifactory libraries so that they will always have the file available to download. Backers will also receive the following stretch goal rewards (if they are met) as part of their initial chosen tier!
