Their miniatures are not 32mm.  There the exact same size as Reapers.  They are heroic 28mm and as a matter of fact they have the exact same sculptures as reaper.  I don't know where you got the minis are 32mm????

 

32mm or 28mm I'm not buying minis that size anymore..

Sadly, allot of stretch goals don't get unlocked for these guys. It may be the $$$ to reach or what not but just look at the one I just posted. They only unlocked a couple stretch figures. Thou, I was mostly in that KS for the ogre as the resin copy is like half the cost of the metal one. Heck, I can't even remember what I ordered with that one. It'll be a surprise!!! lol

 

It's a shame because it appears this company does some really nice stuff; but not even the nicest miniatures in the world are enough if no one notices your campaigns.

 

They're going to have to create some real buzz if they want to get on people's radars; and exciting, achievable stretch goals seem to me to be the best way to do that. Blacklist Miniatures' very successful KS is probably the greatest recent example of a company that came out of nowhere and created ENORMOUS excitement via it's insanely fun stretch goal journey. I have no doubt that a lot of buyers added them to their "Following" lists as a result of it.

Wow!  Never heard of them but damn, 1.6M!  Im sure a lot of people are following them.  I am now.  Lol   

 

Hopefully Tomb Guardians follows this site.   But even if they don't maybe someone tells them to lower the stretch goal amounts.  Still 11 miniatures now in resin are only $3.27.  There also made in the states not overseas, if that matters to anyone.  But they are really nice miniatures.  I have a lot of them.

^ That Blacklist KS is still open for late pledges if you want to jump on board. The $ value per miniature is INCREDIBLY good.

I think part of the issue was how much they used to promote on social media and mailing lists.  I would put it just shy of spam, if a Kickstarter launched or got an update I would get 3-4 emails about it, then there'd be 2-3 posts in a row on every FB minis page (including other companies that usually don't promote other lines).  It was a bit nuts.

I get what your saying but they are a relative new company and I'm sure they dont have the capital to spend for advertising like the larger companies and that is one of their means to get their name out there to the masses.  I agree a little too much but hey I don't care as long as they make great minis.  

 

They just posted this:

"Good Morning everyone!
Tomb Guardians has a HUGE announcement for everyone that has pledged, followers of the Kickstarter and future pledgers! Don’t miss our announcement today at 12pm EST!
We are very excited about this and we know you will be too!"

Well this is exciting. I wonder if they read my post? ::D:

I think GamerPrincess is actually the guy who runs their company. 
 

What helped Blacklist is the quality sculpt for the prices, yes, but also the fact that they dove-tailed this into their board game; Altar Quest. They used their KS to make the Altar Quest game more attractive and to help further drive up the dollar amounts by having the game and its expansions be add-ons during and after the campaign. It was saavy.

Lol no Adrift Im not the guy who runs their company, nor a guy!  Just excited about their minis. 

 

That was clever of Blacklist.  Did you get in on that KS?

Indeed, as did 3 members of my dnd group when I told them; 2 want to learn to paint and will use their minis as a jumping off point.

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
