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.

      10 types and crews as add-ons
       
      The award winning Rafm Miniatures Siege Equipment was first created in the 1980's. These miniatures have been in production for years but we need your help to retool them, and produce new moulds to continue selling the figures. With your help we can update these items for the modern era.
      This Kickstarter offers eleven items including Bombards, Ballista and Catapults. These items were originally sculpted in 25mm scale but fit nicely with 28mm figures. See the Kickstarter video for images of the pieces in scale to 28mm Peasant Siege Crew sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.
      The All-In pledge will give you ten pieces of Siege Equipment for use in any miniature tabletop game. More items can be added to these offerings as we reach greater amounts and open stretch goals. The line has up to 40 different pieces that we can get retooled in this program. Join us and lets see how many of these items we can get retooled.
      All figures are produced in unpainted scaled white metal. Available for use in multiple scales.
      All figures ship in unpainted white metal. The Peasant Seige Crew is 28mm scale and is sculpted by Bob Murch of Pulp Figures.

      A very fitting tribute to the classic days of Mordheim.  I'm glad they're doing both physical and STLs...I like to copy everything and mirror it when I print multi-part pieces to get more variety.

      They've also got several add-ons of some of their existing conversion sets.

      "Mighty backers, welcome to the second campaign by Grimforge Miniatures!
      A difficult year has passed for all and we have worked hard on a lot of projects but the main project which has lead our work is to create a new range of multicomponent miniatures capable to give you the opportunity to assembly a lot of different warbands, an evolving  expandable system born to integrate old and new models and kit for the best kitbash you can imagine.
      we have decide to keep the grimdark fantasy style full of citations from the 90's period and from the paint of artists like hyeronimus bosch.
      We have also taken the big decision to release for the first time also a digital version of this kit to give everyone the opportunity to print their scoundrels at home.  So you have 2 options: traditional resin models or Stl files. 
       
      We have sculpted a complete multicomponent kit and we have a solid range of Stretch Goals to give you the opportunity to unleash your scoundrels during your games. All our miniatures are cast in Italy with high quality resin, the best way to give you miniatures as faithful as possible to the original sculptures. If you already know our models, you already have proof of the quality of our products. On the other hand, if this is your first experience with us then you are even luckier! in the last year we have improved the quality of our models and our efficiency so you will receive our best job!
      here are the "Scoundrels of the damned ruins": mercenaries, treasure seekers, cutthroats... these are the scum who are ravaging the Damned Ruins and you will be able to assembly a warband in a lot of different styles, from pirate to landsknecht with a moltitutide of weapons and accessories."
