28mm hard plastic Scythians

Recommended Posts

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rgdgaming/28mm-hard-plastic-satyrs-and-scythians/?ref=kicktraq

these guys did the plastic fauns set. 

 

This time Its satyrs and Scythians. With unlocks for Scythian cavalry and Amazon’s. 
 

im in for the $40 level. It starts at 1 box, but unlocks a second at $6000 and a 3rd at $12,000. Not bad for $40. Shipping is a flat $8. 
 

You can mix snd match.., so if you want one each of the plastic sets or all Amazon’s.

I have mixed feelings about this KS. I like the sculpts well enough, but there's a lot of Greek-inspired stuff. I probably would use those parts anyway in my game world, but I'd rather see more of the Mongol-esque Scythians I fell in love with the first time I saw them in high school. I'm also not fond of the delivery options.

Like the Alans? Massagetae? The Scythians are worth it alone to make a couple of box sets for the amount of material and background. Lots of good stuff. Cool thing is we are working with Wargames Atlantic to pool boxes in the UK, Australia, and the US. Haven't figured out what's up with the Brexit import tax scenario. Logic would say to just import in a EU participant, pay the customs, and ship like normal. 

 

As for the relative stiffness, I can understand why a lot of folks have gone pewter over the years. Their movements are very organic. Line of draft confined us a bit, so we will have to do some more tweaking as we go along, which we would show in our updates.

Some pics from the last couple of Updates... plus, they are allowing the fauns and Centaurs from KS 1 as options when you pick plastic sets.

I will back this if it gets to Amazons.

Yeah, I am backing at the $40 level, and only really want the Amazons... but if this reaches minimum funding level then thats 2 boxes of hard plastic minis for $20 each... I am not sold on the beast men, but I could see getting some of their fauns... and $20 is not a bad discount. 

 

At $12,000 the amazons unlock, and the $40 nets you 3 boxes. And at $18,000 the horses unlock and nets you 4 boxes. Which makes them $10 a box. If the Amazons unlock, then I will get all amazons... if it reaches $18,000 i may do 3 amazons and 1 scythian... but if they only reach the $6,000 and are too short to reach the $12,000 needed for the amazons, I will keep my pledge and just get some fauns.

Depending on how this goes, we could reach a hypothetical compromise combining the Scyths and Amazons in a 6x9 sprue, vs a 4x6. I was hoping to keep them separate, but the option is there.

New update

 

Alright guys, based on the research from the backers, and looking at my options for molding, we are going to cut the obstacles once more. 

 

If we reach 6k, we will create a Satyr 4x6 mold, and combine the Scythians and Amazons into a 6x9 mold, allowing us to make 8 miniatures per sprue and with 50+ parts. Creating 8 sprues would net 64 models, allowing the original 32 and 32 as intended. 

 

Focusing on the two molds would achieve a lowered mold cost overall, while achieving the same goal. As the more we mold, the more the anticipated sprue sales come (the real money maker for the factory). 

 

For you

  • Amazons become an option at 6k. The difference needed would be covered by myself. If we can raise more, we can then round out the horses. 
  • We would honor the $20 Scythian box pledges with the same combination 32/32 (Scythians and Amazons). 
  • Progression tier would benefit fast, allowing themselves to have access to Amazons and Scythians much faster, and the base Satyrs. So if you have a steppe desire, the progression tier is going to rock your world. 

 

So if you got the $20 box of Scythian, you get 32 Scythian and 32 Amazons?

What do you get at the $40 progression tier?
 

The Scythians and Amazons would be put together in one box, thus making 64 models. Two boxes would be available at the bare minimum. Thus, if wanted, you could nab two of those boxes for 128 models. Or 64 and 32 on the Satyrs.

      Loke BattleMats is running a campaign for their third "Set of 2 spiral-bound Battle Map Books for RPG", after Dungeons and Town and Taverns. 
      Loke has finished shipping their previous KS, and has fulfilled all six of their previous KS. The Wilderness Battle Map Books follow the same format as their previous two. 
      Loke BattleMats will also have digital maps for VTT at a low price, including freebies.
      Previous SG's included free vinyl cling sets (reusable stickers) and Little Book (supplementary maps).
       
      I have a review of their Town and Taverns Battle Map Books on RPG.net, as well as some other of their maps, Dungeon Little Book, and vinyl clings.
