Hello people! i would like to share with you an upcoming Kickstarter campaign that will start on April 20 and last until May 10.
This is the preview page https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joygamesinteractive/the-holy-roman-empire?ref=d1ay07&token=6758305e
As the title says, it will offer Rank & file 3d printable models to make an Imperial Army (15-16th century Germany/Holy Roman Empire), including chracters, commanders, and special troops/artillery
The main pledge of $30 usd, gives 63 models (core units). As add-ons, at 75% off (compared to webstore prices), there will be sets of models (from previous releases in the patreon) and scenery.
The base pledge:
There will be some freebies stretch goals, and other payed, Like ogres mercenaries(x3), Giant, volley gun, heavy arquebusier/sharpshooter, and moarrr!
Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly Reaper Facebook Contest. I was honored to receive an honorable mention. There were dozens of fantastic entries.
I wanted to try a white dragon coloration. I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run. His scales are Dragon White. The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash.
His dagger is a green NMM. His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils. The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color. I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base.
I had a lot of fun with this one. I wanted to keep him as a rogue, so I chose a dagger and loot bag from his hand choices. I also painted his armor as leather with some gold NMM.

Here comes another one from EC3D, aimed for easy to print, supportless, hordes of lower CR traditional monsters and encounters:
Welcome to "Beasts and Baddies" from EC3D, your one-stop shop for the fastest, easiest to print, and highly-reusable tabletop fantasy mini STLS!
This campaign was designed with a few goals in mind:
#1 - Give DMs and gamers a beautiful set of minis to cover the bases for MANY common beasts and baddies they might encounter across most games (particularly low-to-medium level ones)
#2 - Make those minis DEAD SIMPLE to print - no supports required on resin or FDM printers.
#3 - Design those minis so they can be painted fast, but detailed enough to paint to a high quality if you wish.
#4 - Make those minis resilient - aka less prone to breakage with small pieces, easy to travel with, survive drops on the floor, etc
Thus this campaign was born! Many Patreons and Kickstarters have crazy good looking sculpts of various huge bosses, or overly fragile dynamically posed monsters - but nobody is designing minis for the working DM, who wants to throw a set of monsters on the printer before work, come home and they are sitting there finished (with no print errors), slap some paint on them quick, and use them in tonight's session.
This Kickstarter is designed for every DM - regardless of what kind of fantasy game you run, what kind of printer you have, or what kind of models you are looking to fill out your ranks with, this campaign will have something for you. We have sets of all your basic monsters (orcs, goblins, gnolls, kobolds, undead, etc) plus MANY stretch goals planned out, with a backer voting to help add even more stuff to the pledge.
These minis are designed for your standard fantasy game, and are scaled ~32mm with somewhat heroic proportions. They'll look great next to your existing 3D printable figs, HeroForge, Reaper Bones, etc.
Minis are designed to print with zero slicer supports - just drop it on your build plate and print away. Each mini is provided unbased, based on a simple flat base (for you to decorate to your own liking), and also based on a "quick release" bevelled and channeled base (for resin printing, which makes removal from the build plate easy).
In addition to carefully modeling designs to be support free, we have another advantage: I am a software engineer by trade, and developed an algorithm to help check and remove overhangs in the modeling/repair process, which leads to even easier to print minis!
This campaign is easy to understand. There is one pledge level, and it gets you everything pictured on this page! All the minis below are included with your pledge. These minis will be delivered to you as STL files, with all the base options noted above. I've also release a ton of BASES , and am working on another free base pack for this campaign you can use to base these minis if you want more decorative bases.
As new stretch goals are unlocked, I'll add them to the list of included minis below. There's 31 minis in the core pack, and I'm expecting to have nearly 100 minis in this campaign when all is said and done!
** PLEASE NOTE - This Kickstarter is for digital files (STLs) to make all these items on your own home 3D printer - these are not physical goods **
I am not good at telling stories on paper. my mind races far ahead of where the story wants to go and I never get it right so I will let the diorama tell itself. this is an original copy of the Clutch of Fear produced by Ral Partha in the early 1990s. The piece is high lead content. so soft infact that without some strategic pinning the joints fail (or so I have been told).
The basic story is that 2 egg thieves come to relieve a mother dragon of one of her eggs and she comes back early catching them just as they are leaving. The setting on the box seems to be some type of sulfur spring or volcanic hot spring and I get the impression of stillness of morning broken only by the shriek of an enraged mother.
I went pretty classic on this one, going with the red dragon and robin blue eggs like the box art but decided that the spines and chest plates should be more contrast than the slightly darker red of the box. I took the original base pieces included in the box and expanded them to a small diorama of a hotspring using Magic water, a transparent epoxy to create the water around the spring. The resin developed a little bit of a lip at the edge but I wasn't willing to cut it down and risk the clarity of the water by trying to sand and polish the resin. (its more rubbery that solid and difficult to polish -- I tried on two sample pieces and it didn't work out well.)
anyway the WIP is here if your interested: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94482-a-new-year-a-new-old-dragon/
and here are the images of the final project. Hope everyone has as much fun looking as I did creating this. Feel free to comment and question away as always. The project was a lot of fun and the they got the expression of the egg thief who is looking back to see an enraged mother dragon bearing down on him just about right!
One shot from the human's perspective to give an idea of the trouble they are in....
And one from a mothers perspective as she hones in on the ones who are trying to steal her precious eggs!
