Tavern & Townsfolk Miniatures "Dunkeldorf: The Prancing Peacock"

Recommended Posts

Metal holds more details and, if cast right, has fewer mold line problems than plastics.

 

More importantly, I hope you turn that chicken sketch into a downloadable wallpaper! 

 

I have plenty of townfolk already, but towncritters? I'd like to see a KS for them!

@Marc Hehe, I can understand that. I think Reaper has spoiled a lot of us in regards to that. They've done a great job with the Bones line and improved them so much compared to the quality of the very first Bones Kickstarter. Price and quality makes it super attractive, but unfortunately it's hard for smaller companies such as ours to get that sort of operation set up as we would need to get them produced in China and get A LOT of miniatures made before it would make sense. Reaper has probably also spent what I expect to be a huge amount of time perfecting their "Bones recipe" and I wouldn't even know where to start even if it did make sense for us to venture into that area/material :D 

 

Resin is of course an option, but we would need to raise the price of the miniatures for that, which we would prefer not to do and the resin casting process is a lot more time consuming than metal production. So in the end we went for the "Old school" choice :) 

I'm pleased to hear you like the miniatures though!

Completely understood!

If you ever do a Kickstarter for PVC / plastic, I’ll be there! :)

I love the bounty hunter's pistol crossbow and the bolts strapped conveniently to her wrist. And I need that sitting halfling. ::D:

The sculpt for the Bounty Huntress pushed me over.

 

That and the Courtesans.  I need more populace for the House of Swans I just printed out.

I wasn't going to back it at first. I've grown a bit tired of humans / player characters, and for me, townsfolk are basically "less 'exciting' looking humans that are even less likely to see table use." But I recently started painting my Dunkeldorfs from the previous Kickstarter, and now I'm definitely backing. They definitely have a lot of personality, and their styles all fit together so well. Incredibly easy to see how you can have a small town of these colorful characters.

@TheUncannyAK - Glad you like them both :D

@Lidless Eye - Thank you for the support!

 

@Spodi - Thank you so much, that's a huge compliment as our goal was to give them as much character as possible to avoid "Generic townsfolk". 

 

Here are 2 of the latest pictures from the last update. A little mood picture with a bunch of the miniatures and a render of Heinz the Noble Kid and his dog Felix.

I quite like some of these but after doing the math the exchange is too much. I can't justify 20$/per mini and shipping. I will keep an eye out in future for something that works for my budget.

@lexomatic I think your calculation is pretty far off :) 

If you went for the Innkeeper Pledge you would get 18 miniatures for 475 DKK which is just around 71 USD, so that's about 4 USD per miniature plus you're getting accessories and some pets for free as well :) 

 

@Disciple of Sakura Thank you for backing! :) 

 

@knight of the Dinner Table Thank you too! Hope you'll be happy with your picks :)

I would only be getting a handful as addons which drives the cost up per mini. I'm also not in the USA.  I'm only going by kickstarter conversion which had 5DKK as 2 $ so an animal at 25 would be 10$ and a person at 45 would be 18$ per. My wild guess at USA to CDN would roughly double. That would be mich better value, but also more than I want. That's why I posted that it didnt make sense for me.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.

      "I have great admiration for the Norse mythology, and I find the style behind this culture fascinating. So, I decided that my third Kickstarter project should be related to this style that I admire so much. On this opportunity, I will present some characters to you that I hold very dear. These Norse Goddesses are among my most recent personal creation, and I hope you like them as much as I do."

      Monster Terrain (Monster Fight Club) has fir/pine trees now available, as well as an unpainted and STL option.  The trees look good!
       
      I have their trees from last year and they are second best to Dwarven Forge in terms of quality for plastic trees.

      Return to Planet Apocalypse, via @Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/petersengames/return-to-planet-apocalypse?ref=android_project_share
      Yes, Petersen Games is doing a Kickstarter Exclusive again! Just this once! Planet Apocalypse was designed by Sandy Petersen, one of the best-known designers in horror gaming. In the early eighties he wrote the Call of Cthulhu role-playing game for Chaosium. In the nineties, he was a key designer for the ground-breaking video games Doom, Doom 2, and Quake. And in 2015, he released Cthulhu Wars. Now he returns to the topic of apocalyptic horror with a game Shut Up and Sit Down described as "[having] cemented Sandy Petersen as the king of games where you roll dice and things die."
      This Kickstarter offers two separate tabletop experiences:
      The board game (core game reprint) with new expansions. 
      A 325+ role-playing book for 5th edition D&D with TONS of content to bring the apocalypse to your fantasy world, plus new adventures, monsters and more.
