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.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
