It is my impression  or all of them share the same facial features? :rock:

 

Its not unlikely that they share the same mannquin for the body proportions. That would go faster than sculpting all anew.

Decided to go for the early bird for the whole group. Not sure if I'll keep it, some of them are too modern for the games I run/play. They look good though, realistic proportions and poses :)

Looked at it, realized no resin version for the small scale, and decided to not participate. Also, as mentioned above, the faces for all the figures are more or less the same. That's also a shame. :/

Yeah, I would have much preferred a resin option. 
 

1 interesting thing. The pick 10 level is for 1 of each of the initial 10. Last time the pick 10 let you pick any 10 you wanted (so could double up on models). I picked 4 copies of the swashbuckler last time. I asked in the comments and the creator said that you could message them During the pledge manager stage and work something out. 
 

so I may do the pick 10 level. 

1st stretch goal teased

Not sure how they are doing stretch goals this time. Last time, it opened the new girl as an option you can choose to buy. But the creator said this in teh comments of this one "There is also no reason to choose girls from SG as you will get them for free :)" This prompted me to upgrade to the pick 10 level

I've decided not to back this one. 

They just lack that.... awesomness I'm looking for. 

 

That, and there are one or two upcoming projects that I'm more excited about and should probably be saving money for.

I'm actually rather tempted by that one.

Oddly enough, it's down to the sculpt looking very much like a young man. 

 

Still needs a longer sword though.

 

Hmm... She's only $16, I'm putting this on remind.

That sword is way too short for a Landsknecht.

I like the uniform though.

That, too. 

 

All Landsknechte also carried a Katzbalger, but it's not that because she already have that by her side.

(Even those equipped with Zweihanders had a Katzbalger, for close quarters combat) 

 

The model isn't even carrying a proper Zweihander. The drawing shows an early Zweihander, though. 

(It lacks a set of parrying hooks in front of the ricasso. That's the 'blunt' area between the hilt and where the sharp edges start. The slight flare that's drwn there just... no... ) 

But the drawing also shows the side rings, and they are later additions. 

Sure, there may be later swords without the parrying hooks, but that limits the usefullness of the sword.   

The model in the picture also seems to be missing the guard. Side rings alone would not have been enough. This isn't a 'fancy-pants, count the layers, oh, and when you shake your head it'll fall off because my blade is so sharp' Katana. The Sweihander is the embodiment of Hack'n Slash brute force combat. 

 

And it was a devastating weapon in the right hands....

nicked from Wikipedia:

Quote

Frisian hero Pier Gerlofs Donia is reputed to have wielded a Zweihänder with such skill, strength and efficiency that he managed to behead several people with it in a single blow. The Zweihänder ascribed to him is, as of 2008, on display in the Fries Museum. It has a length of 213 cm (84 in) and a mass/weight of about 6.6 kg (15 lb)

 

They were used to break up pike formations, which is an incredibly dangerous operation. If you failed your initial strike you might just as well change your name to Friederik von Pinkussion... or hope that your buddies didn't put that on your gravestone...

The sword is longer than it looks in the picture. They have the video with the model turning around in the update. 
 And here is the next stretch goal.

The spin around looks better. 

 

But how can she balance that sword on her shoulder like that?  That's a lot of weight up in the air behind her. 

She really should carry it with the guard in front of her neck like in the art. That way the balance point of the blade is resting on her shoulder so the blade is much more controllable.

      Story
      In the depths of Agaldurs Keep, where the deep roots of the ancient Dwarven king's mines break into the natural homeland of the Gnomes, the magicks of the Darkewood begin to take hold. In the years after the Dwarves had left these lands the Gnomes took up residence in the lower sections of the Keep finding it infinitely more comfortable than their underground holes. Moving here exposed the Gnomes to new creatures, new tools and of course the magick that weaves through the Darkewood. Over time Gnomish society changed and began revolving around frogs and fairies instead of just dirt.
          More Gnomes? is this just an excuse for Bad puns?
      No of course not,  but when opportunity knocks it would be rude not to open the door eh?  We originally launched the 'Gnome More MR. Nice Guys' miniatures in 2018 and had always hoped to explore deeper into the history of these strange creatures. Where did they come from, What are they wearing and Why do they get so angry?  With your help in funding this project not only will we be able to answer some of these burning questions but we will also be able to bring a whole heap of brand new Northumbrian Tin Minis into production for general release next year. 
      We spent a fair amount of time considering how these gnomes fit into the world along with the rest of the Nightfolk and the Denizens of the Wood and so to help you bring a little bit more of that world to life they also come equipped with a small free digital adventure. Rumor has it that our author Ken became so engaged with the characters and lore that he built a whole campaign around it, which he may or may not have committed to paper - we shall have to see!
      We have 8 Gnomes and 5 Toads as well as an epic Toad mounted Deathstealer, Several stretch goals which include Additional free Minis!
        What do you get out of this? Well, you can get all of those fantastic miniatures we just mentioned and some addons with a fantastic discount on the usual retail price and perhaps bag yourself some free stretch goals on top!  You also get to lend us a hand in shaping these characters and the lore that surrounds them.

      I assume that everyone is already aware that Midlam is running a new KS, but...

      Story
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
