Stonehaven Adventurers 2020

Recommended Posts

Another fun one from Stonehaven, with some of my favorite rarities: female Goblins and Orcs!

Story

“Every individual matters. Every individual has a role to play.” – Jane Goodall

There are doors a hulking orc warrior can bash open in a single blow that would take a party of kobolds a month to chisel through and there are priceless artifacts that a goblin catburglar can swipe without a sound that an army of dwarves would have a great deal of trouble acquiring. Our differences make us strong.

With the Stonehaven Adventurers 2020 project, we are creating a variety of adventuring parties. Some will include variations of a single fantasy race, others will be a mix of different fantasy races. The parties will not all include the same number of miniatures becuase of the difference in the cost of production due to size, and not all of the parties will be included in the Core Set. Some are only available as add-ons.

The miniatures will be made in the USA. They will be cast in 100% lead free pewter (or polyurethane resin in the case of the dragon) and some assembly will be required. They will be sculpted on the standard 28 mm scale. Slotted round bases will be included with miniatures that are pictured on round bases.

And now we present the Core Set:

Cold Blood Clan! Though they come from disparate backgrounds, these heroes have been bound together by cruel circumstance. Finding themselves aboard a prison vessel bound for the quicksilver mines, they combined their strengths, made their escape,  and discovered that they weren't so different after all. (Want another one?Add-on cost: $25)

These scavengers follow the great armies, stealing gear, treasure, and other supplies from the casualties of war. They are not above creating a few extra casualties in order to "find" a few more treasures! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)

Lord Rhatagon's players travel from town to town, performing for the peasants and generally distracting from the privations of peasant life. Each has their own past that they are running from, but none moreso than Rhatagon himself, who travels with his minstrels seeking to rebuild the honor of his house. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)

Goblins seldom get the chance to determine their own destinies. They are the pawns of greater powers and are seen as vermin by the "civilized" races. But just as men can surely be evil, goblins can surely be good. (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)

The Doublecreek Watch has had its hands full lately with escaped convicts, charlatans, and would-be heroes running around stirring up trouble! It's going to be one zany adventure, culminating in the wacky awakening of ancient horrors! (Want another one? Add-on cost: $25)

In addition to the Core Set, we've got some other stuff that is only available as add-ons. This is that stuff!

The massive mountain Orcs have formed an uneasy alliance with the mountain queen. Orc warriors, once feared and killed on sight, are now commonplace among the caravan guards and mercenary companies that come down from the northern steppes. (Add-on cost: $37)

The Mushroom Folk have lived under the dark trees for as long as time has been counted. Mercurial creatures, they can change their form to best suit the needs of the coming day. Although many will prefer to maintain a single form, others will change form each night: from simple form to warrior form, or from spore form to mage form. Each form has its strengths and drawbacks.

The Mushroom Folk have interchangeable parts and can be assembled into thousands of different combinations.

The Reclining Dragon rests comfortably on your tabletop, awaiting delicious adventurers to walk into its jaws. Or you could barter with it, or whatever, he's pretty chill that way! 

This dragon is big! It measures 105mm across and will be cast in polyurethane resin. The wings come unattached. (Add-on cost: $25)

As we hit these stretch goals, more miniatures will be added to the Core Set, Mushroom Set, and/or made available as add-ons!

First up:

9c629503687b5fe3c486af50c577a4c9_origina

When we reach $12,000, Cyragnome the gnomish swashbuckler will be added to the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Cyragnome is a fearless fighter with a flair for the dramatic. Many a bandit has had his knees bloodied by Cyragnome's flashing blade!

f8bbd3e13b45d0233d8290fa2bb75084_origina

When we reach $14,500 the Male Goblin Warrior will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. He will also be available as a $4 add-on. Goblin warriors are fearless in battle. Often facing much larger foes, they often triumph through a combination of lucky crits and really bad attack rolls from lvl 1 adventurers!

When we reach $17,000 the Female Goblin Ranger will be unlocked and added to the Otker and the Mob adventuring party in the Core Set. She will also be available as a $4 add-on. Ricochet the goblin ranger got her nickname by bouncing a bolt off a guard's shield and into another guard's exposed back. 

Once these goals are reached, we will introduce new ones!

Wow! You scrolled so far! Thanks for taking the time you check out our project; you are the best!

Jumped straight in for the half-dragon. I swear those are the best things they do.

Since I am so far behind on painting previous Stonehaven miniatures, I decided that I was not buying in.  OK, just kidding, but I probably won’t get the fungus folk...

Their Swashbuckler Dragonborn is one of my favorite Dragonmen sculpts.  I'm not even sure what set it was from anymore...maybe the Half-Orcs

Yep, the duelist, he was with the half-orcs. Absolutely top-shelf mini.

Unfortunately, Stonehaven up-priced their minis out of what I'm willing to spend for minis. Good looking minis thou.

Gotta see if it’s possible to only get the dragon... I’ve wanted a sleepy dragon for a while now.

The kickstarter prices are usually reasonable, though I will admit their store prices have gotten ridiculous.  Need to see what this ks brings before I jump on board.  I already have so many....

Honestly, I have never gotten them outside of Kickstarter and agree that when they went to that weird new CrystalCommerce style site, prices jumped to a crazy degree.

The prices for individuals during this KS seem more than fair, but I always go for Completionist and sell/trade my extras.

Hubby and I pledged for the dragon. $31 seems a reasonable price for a 4” wide sleeping dragon.

I backed Stonehaven's Dwarves Vol 2, and those looked awesome. Nice variety and personality, amazing reference pictures, and the sculpts all looked great. 

 

These... don't look so great. Not bad, just more "amateur". I think (hope) it is the way they're pictured. It is not easy to photograph an unpainted mini. I'm sure doing drawings like they did for the dwarves would be a lot of work, but seems like they could benefit from at least a quick zenithal highlight or even a wash to help show the details.

 

If I wasn't familiar with Stonehaven already, I probably wouldn't give it a second thought. But I know they'll be better than they look here, and likely end up getting the Adventurers set.

I've had similar issues; the photos from their previous campaigns, and even on their site, don't really do the models justice, and it wasn't until this year that I actually bought some. The actual models are SO much better than the pictures would suggest.

      Twisted are returning to Kickstarter soon, it's still in the teasing stage at the moment but there should be more details next week.
       
      Since their first Kickstarter wrapped up pretty dang late (even by usual Kickstarter standards), I'm hoping they've learnt a few lessons and keep this one fairly small and manageable.

      "Crosslances is an artistic reality consolidated for many years, we have dedicated ourselves very often to model making and playing miniatures in 28/32mm scale.
      This time, however, we want to launch a completely different project, an absolute novelty, our original idea.
      In fact, we want to make available to you these fantastic sculptures of ours, which can be printed directly at home, painted and placed inside your bookshelves to obtain stunning effects!"

      This is the old school, mega dungeon you've been waiting for!
       
      And, it will be of particular interest to folks here, because one of the things the Scarlet Citadel Kickstarter will offer are a set of beautiful, poster-sized, table-ready battle maps to play on (and use all our awesome minis on! :)

      PDF is an inexpensive $1 supplement by Philip Reed, who has run multiple KS campaigns, and has been writing RPG material for 20+ years. He's also head bean counter at Steve Jackson Games.
       
      The rumors are essentially adventure seeds, mostly for single encounters. You have to stat out the details. See the free sample.
       
      Most of the material has been previously published in previous KS as articles. This KS is for a collection of his work. Sometimes, he'll give free PDFs of his previous work during a campaign.
       
      Personally, I recommend the PDF because you're only going to need a few pages at a time, and can cut up the printout for any illustration handouts.
       
      Dead tree copies are available through DriveThruRPG. See the KS for details.

      Fantasy Football - FANS!
       
      These would have been perfect for the 'gang fight' that opened the fantasy cops campaign -

      The way the orc is commiserating with the human.
       

       
      I don't play Blood Bowl, but even so, these tempt me.
       

       
      And a place for the fans to sit -

      It captures the feel I want for the city - a place where humans, elves, dwarfs, orcs, and others live together as a community. Where a human and an orc can both mourn for a bad play from their team.
       
      *EDIT* €15 for the STLs - pretty reasonable - and I think the bleachers will see a fair amount of use.
