Next Level Miniatures is on Kickstarter (Rappan Athuk, a giant dragon, fantasy minis galore)

Recommended Posts

Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.


I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

Hey Everyone! We are excited to introduce ourselves to the community, and look forward to interacting with everyone! We are a new miniatures company based in the US, and we've already funded our first Kickstarter and knocking out stretch goals.  We'd love if you stopped by and if you have questions, just ask!


KICKSTARTER: https://bit.ly/3gYSTWS


Some of the key details:
💥Our goal is to produce high-quality resin miniatures at a fair price in North America to avoid shipping difficulties
💥Our miniatures are 28mm in scale
💥We use a thermoplastic resin that is highly resilient and has good flexibility, yet still takes paint exceptionally well.
💥We are already up to 93 minis for your $80 all-in pledge (and counting)

First Created, so I'm eagerly waiting for their second KS. 🙂


We're already discussing the "flexible resin" in the KS, which is "thermoplastic resin" in Dakka and Dwarven Forge. It's a plastic that can accommodate undercuts better than boardgame plastic. Speculation is that it's SioCast, though none of us seem to have asked NLM directly. 🙃 Of course, just because you use a better plastic / resin technology, doesn't mean your production miniatures automagically are better than other plastic / resin miniatures. The prices are certainly better than resin, but not as good as plastic.

Siocast is what Galladoria Games has converted to, and I love seeing their stuff here at ReaperCon. Galladoria has even said they’re taking outside contracts, so who knows, maybe Galladoria is fulfilling production???

Hey everyone!


We really appreciate the chatter about our project. We're very excited to bring some amazing minis into the hobby at a fair price, and are excited to hear from everyone in the community. This is the first of what we hope is many campaigns, and we do indeed plan to continue our operations in the US. 


If there's any questions you have, we'd be happy to answer them, whether it's here or in the project comments where we also try to be very active. 


We have some great partnerships with the team over at Frog God (Rappan Athuk) and Punga, and we are very excited to be off and running!

Thanks! So will the flexible resin / thermoplastic resin be done through Siocast, or a different thermoplastic resin company or whatnot?


What other miniature products and projects have the company and its staff done?


What's the name of your sculptor and what other projects have they done? The sculpts look great and hope the renders translate well into production.


What sculpts will you be doing in your next KS? Some longertime miniature collectors already have sculpts similar to the ones in the present KS. (I actually don't have any stirges in my collection!)


Best wishes with the KS!

It does look like a very tempting set of 'classic' monsters, good for the tabletop, with a few sculpts in there that I don't already have another model for. That non-Mindflayer in the latest episode is definitely one.

I tend to lose the will to paint a bit when I'm painting multiples of the exact same sculpt, but in this case they're clearly meant for the tabletop, so you could knock out a paintjob faster.

I'm also keeping an eye out to see if anything else still gets unlocked. Not 100% sold yet! I do like the dragon, the flying pose looks right and the size looks reasonable too (I'm assuming a fair bit smaller than the Bones 5 ones, though I don't have those yet, and "Huge" would still mean Adult in D&D terms...)

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.

      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!

      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
