The Dragon's Lair at $120 knocks down the dragons to $20 each. However, if you just want a dragon, Reaper Bones KS dragons were $10 each. I'm finally getting a five-headed dragon, Marduk, through this KS, although I'd rather have a dragon that looks more like Tiamat. Reaper has a five-headed Bones dragon, which is larger and more expensive.



Oh I have all the Reaper dragons.. except the new Shadow dragon.. i'm not a fan of that sculpt..  I've got it on remind and I'll see how the core pack looks down the road..

I’ve backed this one at the $99 DM pledge level. 

A dragon of my choice, plus a core set and 3 rooms or a total of 5 rooms. I can get a couple of Dwarven mines, maybe a couple of hive rooms and then an extra one room of something else; it’ll really diversify the themes I can lay down.

Hopefully, this is an OK spot to ask this question.


As someone who doesn't own any tiles or terrain pieces and is therefore attracted to this KS, do the tiles from this company fit in/match with those of other companies (e.g. Dwarven Forge, TTCombat, Deathray Designs, etc.)? And do those companies' tiles fit with each other in turn?


I guess I'm asking: if I buy this or any other company's tiles, am I locked into only being able to use that company's tiles per set-up?

No. D&L uses a proprietary system.


However, in ye olden days, game tiles didn't lock together, anyway. Most can still be set up so they don't lock together. Don't expect D&L walls to fit into another company's floor tile, of course. D&L walls are thinner than Dwarven Forge, so may look too thin aesthetically. However, thin walls allows you to make walls in rooms and are easier to store. Pretty much every company makes 1" square floor tiles. Most companies make some sort of 2" x 2" floor tiles with 1" squares, but look closely how these tiles may differ, such as in the first picture in the spoiler (DF walls with the walls inside the 2x2 square, Rampart with the walls outside the 2x2 square).


You can use a different manufacturer for a different section of your dungeon. Frex, you could build a D&L torture room and put it right next to a Dwarven Forge game tile. They just won't lock. IMO, you only really care about locking if you have to transport a room from home, or if you want to build multi-level dungeons. 


Note that no single manufacturer will create all the varieties of game tiles possible. Likewise, you'll spend less money if you're willing to buy from different manufacturers when they offer lower prices. I do know that D&L looks like they'll have the same core sets in their D&L3, so you don't feel pressure to buy an entire dungeon from them in on KS. 


I don't have D&L tiles, but, in the spoiler, I've included an example of Rampart dungeon tiles with DF ones, as well as a 2D sewer game tile from a D&D tile set.

I'm really eyeing those dragons, but I'm not sure if they'll be gargantuan or huge. They look like they're probably on a 2" diameter base, so they could probably be placed on a 3" base overall, but I'm worried that they might still run too large and outsize my existing gargantuan-based dragons...

Campaign page mentions how tall each dragon is, though now how wide. Dragons are about 6" tall. 


Free dragon SG at 1M. Ridiculous number of SG's unlocked, and you can even get additional SG sets for $20.

Legacy items are still being shipped. 


Material is this sandable plastic. Very durable. Not soft like Mantic or boardgame plastic, not brittle like resin.

Shipping gets even more rapid: We have planned shipping of Second Edition items for August of 2021. Well, things got changed and we are planning to start shipping late February/early March 2021. Yes, 5 months earlier than planned.

      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
      "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.

      The Project

      This is our 12th Chibi miniatures project. Over the last 5 years at conventions, our Pony Chibi from our previous KickStarters are always the most popular figures and we love hearing the happy sounds of people seeing them for the first time in the display cases. Now as technology has greatly changed we wanted to add new ponies and accessories to the model line and now offer them to everyone as digital models to print at home for yourself!

      The Miniatures
      The digital models will be sent as STL one piece models within a month of the project ending. Models will be sent without supports (we will have a stretch goal to buy software and add supports to all the files).

      Due to Stretch Goal #1, the ponies will also be provided with STLs for the different components of the models, so you can use a free product like Meshmixer to mix and match parts from the different models to create your own ponies.

      In addition, if you want the models will be available as physical one piece 3-D prints as well in super high quality resin prints. Prints will be grey and will come with bases (as most are not free standing models)

      The miniatures will come in two sizes. The base pony figures will normally be 30mm tall to the top of the figurine's head and a couple large pony figures will normally be 50mm tall to the top of the figurine's head (the Nightmare and Kirin are large ponies)

      This time they have 150 EB slots (35$ instead of 40$) for minis + terrain. They also added a 220$ level that gets you all the add-ons (but not everything from their previous campaigns).
