Yippers and Squealers : 28mm Pigfaced Goblins and Dogfaced Kobolds : Free mini at 7K


Recommended Posts

I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers! ::):

 

$100 level has 40+ miniatures and FREE USA shipping!

 

RBJ Game Company has created 18 KS projects, mostly miniatures. Let me know your experience with them if you backed before.

Oy, these look mighty nice. Actually characterful, not just rank and file, despite the numbers. I can't this year, but luckily next year is just around the corner and I might be able to go in on this before it's run its course.

 

EDIT: Ah, bloody hell, ends on the 31st, not the 1st. That'll be a problem.

Fuifilled!

 

Reposting from KS comments:

 

Wow! Just received mine today. Need to do inventory, but, living in CA, the package took only a few days from IN. Big difference compared to other KS, where the miniatures are made overseas and take weeks to ship. Also, no major delays, drama, or other KS worries on the backer's part -- hope things went reasonably well for the creator.

 

Terriers are a clever way of interpreting kobolds, who were indeed dog-faced back in AD&D or so. And, of course, orcs were sculpted with pig-faces, and some sculpts still have them that way. I really do like the whimsical sculpts, as they add to my over-burgeoning collection of generic fantasy miniatures. As much as I like generic fantasy, my collection is filled up with the conventional orc, goblin, kobold, etc. sculpts and I normally don't buy them anymore.

 

Hopefully, RBJ's next project will capture a way to get another $100+ out of my wallet. Maybe even contact the Oathmark / Osprey folks and have a Yipper crossover with the Burrows and Badgers skirmish game. Even have those pesky Hareballs as an uncontrolled threat on the board that both players have to be wary of...!

      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?

      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.

      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.
