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...!

      (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'm a fan of Boss Monster, so I backed this too. Already funded and delivery projected for October of this year.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
