I believe the Bard says it best.  

I'm struggling to find polite words to describe how I feel about this right now.     Canada and United States only. This means it's literally impossible to "legitimately" purchase

Well, looks like Hasbro is doing their own version of a kickstarter for a new release of one of the all-time classics.  I don't know if their site for the crowdfunding would be considered as a commerc

I know of a Patreon that is specifically "Heroquest" mini releases..... :lol:

 

I think they are called "Retro Crusade" or something. I know it was "Retroquest" but they had to change due to someone else had the name.

 

I'll look into it, but I really wasn't into Heroquest back in the day.

I actually have been painting their tribute to the original Zombie mixed in with the mass of other Zeds.

 

I'm excited about this, I like the look and the updates toward modern sensibilities (more female Heroes and Monsters).  Heroquest is what got me into miniatures to begin with

This is super tempting. I owned the original Hero Quest, and I'm still sad I didn't hold on to it for the terrain, if nothing else. They were the first minis I got into painting, and my first real introduction to fantasy RP style games. This is a major nostalgia itch for me, but I'm not sure if it's worth it or not...

Lawl, even better it also isn't available in Quebec... 

 

And no shipping cost info on the main page, at least that I can find anyways. 

One of the first things I noticed. :angry:

 

Most likely because of our language laws that require a French translation included somewhere. Our contest laws are also something that eliminates us from lots of fun stuff.

 

If I want it hard enough, I'll find a way.

 

Also: A MINIMUM goal of $1,000,000 USD?!

 

Seeing the current progress, they're at $566,000 at the time of this writing, so no worries there. But seeing the foreseeable unlockable goals, they're not the most generous.

I still have a somewhat beat up copy of the original and 2 expansions. From the look of this it's the same game with updated minis. Don't like them enough to pay nearly $400 with shipping. My oldest was obsessed with it for awhile and we played so much I got kind of sick of it. If it was cheaper I'd be tempted but now not really interested.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "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.

      I leave this here:

      Looking quite good! I'm backing for the character set.

      I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. 
       
      IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.)
