What do people know about this company? 6 created but seems like an awful lot of stretch goals even at the low tier


A couple of years ago I went all in for one of their undead graveyard kickstarters. There was a slight delay getting it out if I remember correctly but everything looked great and was just as advertised in the KS campaign. The resin pieces needed very little prep to get them paint ready and the details were great. I went in on their Battleruins: Temple of the Damned KS recently and those appear to be on track for completing on time. Their communication is pretty good too. They publicize their production timeline and let backers know when they hit goals on that timeline so you can see how closely they stick to their schedule. It's a bit on the pricey side, especially with shipping to US from Spain, but it's a good product that I think is worth it. I'm still on the fence for this one, but only because it's the holidays and don't know if I want to spend money for a kickstarter right now. If this had come up in the summer I'd almost certainly have pledged already.

So lowest tier for 12 Euros (19 Cdn) gets you either the skull, the statue, or the 3 stones, and 5 skulls. And stretch goals: 1 gargoyle, 2 obelisk, 1 menhir, 1 beast skull, 10 skulls , 1 books set (2?), 2 tentacles, 2 piles of books and 1 set of candles, 1 necronomicon, 3 daggers, a sprue of skulls and a banner, likely 1 m of bronze chain, and unlikely a pool with skulls. That seems reasonable for bits.

Edit estimated shipping is 16 euros, which makes it seem a lot less reasonable, but that still works out to about 45$

You can price out the retail value of the stretch goals pretty easily on their website - e.g. the 10 skulls and 5 candles are each about half of a 5eu set, so those are about 5eu. Probably about 10eu in stretch goals.

I remember now not backing the undead graveyards because of the shipping and the stuff I wanted was way more than getting a skull wall mold and casting a bunch of stuff.

I think the retail value of stretch goals could be more than 10€, about 15€ approx.
But even if we take 10€ as an example, that means that for a 12€ pledge you get 10€ of extra stuff for free, so really the shipping cost you pay is 6€. I think it's a good deal.

I'm in with all in pledge, and I want the cultists! I hope the goal is achieved.
I'm helping to share the project, I want the free cultists miniatures ::D:

I have supported several Hammerlot campaigns, the models are very detailed as seen in the photos, and of good quality, I did not find air bubbles in the resin pieces.

Campaign is over. They did end up topping €21k, and this unlocked the last revealed stretch goal. 



I’m stoked for these, and will likely get several of the extra add-on menhirs (there is a KS exclusive €5 add-on of two Cthulhu menhirs, which is a killer deal; 3 arcane menhirs is €11).

I'm going to have my Mourngul for my army, fantastic!

      "Over 1800 Jungle Themed Terrain Pieces Made for the World's Greatest Roleplaying Game, and Others Like it."

      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."
      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)

      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
