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

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

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...)

      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      More villagers for your town!
       
      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.
       
      All In Pledge shows all sets available in this KS. Sets and smaller bundlers are available, and sets from the previous Villagers KS are available now from the creator's website.

      Already well over fund target, with 19 days to go

      Another one from Crippled God Foundry, focusing on ruined terrain (with non-ruins as a future stretch goal) and more creepy Undead and graveyard dwellers.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crippledgodfoundry/ruins-of-hollow-hills/description

       
      “Ruins of Hollow Hills” is a collection of Fantasy Ruined Buildings, Thematic Scenery Pieces and Miniatures as 3D Printable Files for Resin and FDM printing.
      All the buildings, scenery and miniatures from this campaign are designed for tabletop role play, skirmish games, wargames of 28-32 miniature scale or for use with your scale model projects!
       All the Buildings, Scenery & Miniatures from this Campaign are 3D PRINTABLE FILES ONLY!
      This means that you have to print the miniatures in a Resin or FDM 3D Printer .
       
      In the picture below you can see all the buildings, terrain pieces & miniatures included in the Core Set:



      They also have add-ons with STLs from their previous projects as well as their ended Monstrober promotions.

      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden
