While I don't use oriental stuff that much in my rpgs, I do like Twin Goddess sculpting style.  I'll have to think on this one.

 

There are still early bird slots at 25 too.

Well, luckily I don't have an Oriental Project going on, so this is useless to me!!!

 

Sigh...

 

I backed, Early Bird..

 

 

 

Yah I ended up backing. Again, I love Twin Goddess's style + who know what other sculptors/companies will show up. I absolutely love the giant shrine-mtn-statue piece. I really need to replace that belt on my Ender 6!!

Journey to the west, one of the 4 great works of Chinese litterature.

 

Sun WuKong is the Chinese name for the Monkey King, the hero of the story.

 

In 1927, part of it was filmatised as Pan Si Dong(Cave of the Silken Spider), a movie that was long thought lost forever, until a complete copy was found in the Norwegian National Library in Mo i Rana in 2013.  

The follow up Xu Pan Si Dong  has not been found there, though, so it must be assumed lost.

 

I'm in for the early bird.

 

The $30 pledge with a rebate coupon for a Sonic Mighty doesn't really tempt me. The mighty may be a 4K model, but it also has a 9" screen, so X/Y resolution is still52um.

My next Resin printer will have both larger volume and better resolution.

I cancelled.

 

Took a good look at the files and I realised I can find more that suits my need for less.

I would end up with at least half of these that I wouldn't print.

So I was a bit too eager.

The price seems pretty high compared to Patreon releases. Pit Fighter was already a mixed bag, but offered far more in comparison.

Yeah, there definitely isn’t the value in this one for my interest.

Nickey's Hatchery has a Set for $10 on MMF.

Journey to the East.

It's different but it has Monkey fighters/Demonic Apes and such in an Asian setting.

It could be either an alternative or an addition to this.

 

These are the main thing, but there are some busts and buildings in there as well.

They STILL have early birds.

 

IF we go in it will be the $30 level, for the discount on the Sonic Mighty.

 

I want to like it, I really do, but instead of more monsters for stretch goals they just added a naked version of the female character.

 

Nice, but an adventure needs monsters more than it needs naked ninjas doing a fan dance.

well, the original story had 7 spider monsters who took the form of beautiful, young women in order to seduce and trap the heroes...    

 

The Mighty isn't all that much to lust after. It has about the same resolution as the Photon/Photon S or any other of tat generation. 

It just has a larger build plate than the others.

Yeah, definitely seeing mixed reviews on the Mighty.

 

EPax seems to be the best regarded in that size and generation, with a 5K upgrade, and not that big of a price increase.

 

The Saturn is less expensive, but impossible to get right now.

 

Grump described Journey to the West as an epic quest, with meaningful and deeply layered allegory.

 

And monkeys, because EVERYTHING'S better with monkeys. ::D:

What, you don't like fan service?

Good thing this one still has over a week to go, personal interest is waning for it. I do like that huge terrain piece but overall I wish there was more to it.

      Hi Chums! Sorry I left it so late to post, I have been ill the whole Kickstarter! Just scrambling now in the last few hours - despite this though it's going brilliantly!
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/badsquiddogames/women-of-ww2-soviet-russia-28mm-miniatures

      We are close to the last stretch goal now - an adoring fan for our guitar player! Yes you heard that right!
       
        

       


      Unlocks have been:
      Winter Tank Riders Pack A
      Winter Tank Riders Pack B
      Winter Tank Command
      Winter Tank Hunters
      Dzhulbars the Mine Hunting German Shepherd with handler
      Kneeling Sniper Team in snow suits
      Lyudmila Pavlichenko
      Anti Tank Rifle Team
      Traffic Controllers
      Winter Advancing Command
      Dancers
      Guitarist
       
       
      The Eastern Front is obviously a very grim setting, and whilst fascinating to research, it can get very heavy! This range has a much less jolly feel than the last load of Home Front British miniatures, for obvious reasons (being more front line based) but I wanted to add some endearment in there to make people smile. And when I research these projects, the people definitely make their way into my heart through the memoirs and photographs. So I'd like them to be having a bit of fun.

      So far we have the accordion player and dancers, and these will fit brilliantly with them to make a nice camp fire diorama (check out our camp fires too!).
       



      Cheers all!

      I didn't see this KS listed after a quick search.  I like the painters, and I like HD, but there's just so much free stuff out there now...

      I have some of Zabavka Workshop's resin but haven't played with any of their .stl files.
       
      Wargame Resin & .STL Base Toppers
       
      We know creating bases for miniatures is a struggle for many of us, especially when it comes to armies.
      It's a hell of a work...
      We realized that we are not alone thanks to the feedback from the backers of 2 previous projects on Kickstarter and our community.
      We share your pain and that's why we decided to create 100+ Unique Resin and 3D Printable (.STL) Base Toppers for our community.
      For this campaign, we've prepared 10 thematic sets of base toppers and several sets of elements for decoration.
      And this is just for the start, the rest depends on the speed of unlocking stretch goals😉
       
      We've specially designed them in the form of toppers to reduce the cost of printing for you.
      Because the cost of printing a round base is more expensive than the cost of buying a black plastic base.

      Another 7 days KS by Medusa Minis. I have been quite happy with their previous campaigns. 9 pounds for the whole set or 25 if you missed the previous orc sets.
