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 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.

@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.

      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. 👀
