Six new fantasy-themed rooms, plus previous fantasy-themed D&L products. Pledges are for 5- and 11-room pledges. Mebbe $20 for a room add-on and $40 for the fantasy core set. Stuff is good, but the walls are thin, which made the mining room look like a Disney dark ride. Otherwise, thin walls are fine for wooden village walls, and the plastic is a sorta resin plastic? I backed D&L2 and it's the best budget modular plastic terrain I've found that's still good quality for gaming, plus D&L throws in a TON of SG's. And, last KS, you could buy a second set of SG's for $20, a really good price for what you got. Previews showed more buildings. Battle Systems (?) is a good alternative, if you like papercraft, don't want to paint everything, and didn't want the miniatures and SG's.

 

They're gonna add plenty of townsfolk, but the starter has 63 city guardsmen out of 67 mini's. That's a lot, but if the bases are separate, then you can use 'em (the ones that aren't asleep on duty!) for generic infantry armies.

These guards have a ton more character than other ‘guards’ I have. I definitely have plenty of townsfolk figures otherwise. 
 

I backed their last Kickstarter and assuming the quality is the same then I’m probably in for a few rooms for certain. 
 

Their project updates are usually thorough.

I’m intrigued. I like the instant conquistador army. And the Xenodragon? Awesome. 
 

Basically will depend on prices for the various stuff as to if I back or not. I really like the Ettinstone magnetic tiles I got, so I wasn’t really looking for more terrain. But if the deal is good enough...

Do we have a launch date for this?

 

Second half of April, after they ship out D&L2. 

 

fwiw, Black List Games has five city guards of the same sculpt, but they don't look as good as Archon's. 

 

Archon also said you can swap out the townsfolk for a room. Time to spend ahead your refund! :upside:

I saw reported on another forum that in a stream of some sort, the creator of this project stated the “x3” guard sculpts will be reduced to two of each, rather than three of each sculpt. I didn’t see the stream myself, so take with a grain of salt. 

 

On the preview  page, they changed the 3 of each to 2 or each. But looks like some other minis will be added. I asked them on their facebook page if there will be a minis only pledge. They advised no. But did state that the minis will be available as an add-on. So you could just back for $1 and add the minis... just no stretch goals.

There should be an add-on only pledge. so you can get the Townsfolk box. They also have some previous Stretch Goal and animal companions boxes you may be interested in. The guards in Fantasy Series 2 aren't as good, imo, but take a look there if you're looking for plastic generic fantasy miniatures!

      First of all, I have lots of people to thank for inspiration. This particular piece, the dilapidated fort, was directly taken from a project at Onyx Workshop. My other major inspiration is Le Golem Qui Reve, a French fellow who has been doing Sandgrave for a number of years. Check out his amazing blog. (If you're going to cite sources, it's not plagerism, right?) 
       
      This one was done using Hirst Arts Egyptian moulds: Floor tiles, sandblasted pyramid and regular walls. My go-to colours are P3 Rucksack Tan for the base, washed with GW Seraphim sepia. The bricks are done using a variety of tan and off whites available at the dollar store. The whole thing is drybrushed a cream, then flocked. I use regular plaster of paris and wood glue, with Aileen's tacky craft glue for the flocking. I use so much of the sand base I had it custom mixed at the hardware as a gallon. House paint stinks for minis, but it covers sand really well. The sand is locally collected from my yard.
       
      To create the chipped look, I used a dull hobby knife blade and hacked at the wall. I'm very happy with how this looks and it has become my new way of making convincing ruins. The ladder is a leftover piece from an MDF kitbash. Each of the straight blocks is 1" long. The base is a piece from Charlie Foxtrot out of the UK. He's an amazing guy to purchase from. I believe it is from bases set one. I will admit I screwed up when I made it, it should be 5 inches long to accomodate a full unit for Wargods, which brings us to...
       
      The minis are Crocodile Games. They have shields, and as part of my spring cleaning of the paint desk, they will soon receive them. The metal (or bones) mummy warriors complement this range very nicely, being comparable in size and asthetic. If you aren't fussy about duplicates, choose the bones version. The metal version seems to me like it could use a new mould --some of the detail seems shallow.

      An entire town, if it fits the era you play in.

      A town.  I passed on their last one and will probably pass here as well.  IIRC the prior campaigns ended up in the late pledge section of MMF.
