Title: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Midaski on July 08, 2017, 04:59:41 PM
We have had odd ones with their own thread being run by forum regulars, like Westfalia for example, but I thought it might be an idea to have a dedicated thread for odd ones members spot that could be of interest.

I'll kick off with this one from Midlam Miniatures:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/the-winter-adventurers/description


It runs until July 23rd
I have supported a couple of theirs before, and bought off their stand at Salute.
Nice little growing company that does simple small projects.

Seriously tempted by the Bruegelburg Kickstarter. Women & children with this combination of character, realism and finesse are hard to find. But the balalaika extra is just silly, methinks.


Was initially skeptic about the the Reaper Bones 4 Kickstarter. But now the sheer amount of minis - and those more recent monster additions - begin to make it more tempting. Maybe I should sell some unpainted GW metal Goblins and Trolls and replace them with these?

Judging from the Bones 3 minis, their casting medium and molds have got somewhat better. Finer detail and small/thin weapons are still a problem, though.


Uh... I don't actually need a single miniature more... But...

I quite like the simple ruleset they have put together actually.

The sample game is a bit like a Trumps card game - I lay this car, you counter, I lay another countering that.
Is that MtG with minis.  :engel:

Nice enough, but foresee add-on after add-on of other armies and figures - a 10 year ongoing project at least.
Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Kallstrom on August 09, 2017, 08:30:07 AM
Yeah I have grown to like the simplified rules as well! I would like too see if i can rebase them though, put the infantry on 20mm square bases and the cavalry on 25x50mm square bases. That way I could still play "A Song of Ice & Fire" with them (since the movement tray and number of models is all that counts there) and also play Empire/Bretonnia with them by placing the models on other movement trays.

Right now I have pledged for 2x Starter Sets, 2x boxes of Cutthroats and 1x extra box of Knights of Casterly Rock. If they release some more sweet stretch goals and addons I will try to get them too. At the moment the KS is picking up momentum with only 6 days to go, and the next stretch goal will unlock 8 additional archers for the base box/pledge, rounding it up to a total of 12x Archers.
They have hinted that Bolton Cavalry is coming, and their artwork looks really menacing and great!

I would recommend joining in on this Ks, I think this is a nice deal for the amount of miniatures you get. :)

"Players may also choose to spend points on various Non-Combat Units (NCU), such as Tyrion Lannister and Catelyn Stark. These individuals work behind the scenes, influencing the course of events through their skills at politics, negotiation, or battlefield strategy."

if you buy Catelyn stark, you auto lose your game.

Post by: Zygmund on August 09, 2017, 11:21:43 AM
Is the funding rate of 311% atm good or bad for ASOIAF? I somehow think CMON & the licencees might have hoped for better at this stage. There are definitely fewer pledges than on some previous bestselling CMON Kickstarter miniature games. Despite the fantasy setting being viral over the globe. Is the miniatures hobby aspect really this niche for ASOIAF?

On the other hand, the actual pledged sum is approaching a million dollars, which is huge for a miniature tabletop game on Kickstarter.

Now speculate. :)

Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Finlay on August 09, 2017, 11:38:16 AM
1) $150 is fairly expensive to the point where you can't just invest as a random throwaway. Hence why there is a lower number but a higher $ of pledge. I think it's weird it's a kickstarter honestly, should be popular enough to standalone.
2) Maybe more response if it came out a few years ago?
Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Kallstrom on August 09, 2017, 12:01:42 PM
Cmon has mentioned that they are focusing on the retail release of this game since that will promote long-livity for the game. The Ks works more like a pre-order where you get the units/startbox cheaper and gets some alternative sculpts of characters.  They are of the point of view that if they treat this Ks like a regular Ks and shower us with everything they got in store they might kill the will of the retailers to stock this game in the future, hence making it harder to generate hype and build a new playerbase over time. They want this game to succeed and they believe that the key to that is to build the game's releases from the ground up once it hits the stores.

I like that they want to focus on keeping this game alive for many years to come by supporting it over time, so I am okay with not getting everything at once. At the moment we have three factions. Starks, Lannisters, and Mercenaries. More will come in the future. :)

$150 for the starter box gives you 137 miniatures as of now. That is pretty sweet.
Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Finlay on August 09, 2017, 12:49:07 PM
and when the TV series finishes in 2 years time, you end up with a game based on a non-popular culture hyped media ie the gw lotr and hobbit games...

not convinced!
Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Kallstrom on August 09, 2017, 01:16:01 PM
"Non-popular culture hyped media"? Well, each to their own, I guess. :) The game is based on the books, and not the tv-show. Of course one cannot foresee the future, but one can hope that the game will still will be fun and exciting for people that are fans of the books and the ASoI&F-universe. Otherwise you end up with miniatures you could always use for other games, like Warhammer, Ninth Age, Kings of War, Frostgrave etc.

This does not have to convince you, and backing a Kickstarter is always a risk (even though more established companies like Cmon often is a safe bet), but only time will tell how this game will fare. I am hoping for the best, since I long for a rankNfile-game that is not over-complex, and combining that with the tactics deck gives me a cozy Triumph & Treachery-feel, which feels nice. It will add some more random element to the games, which spice things up and makes each game a little more unique. ;)
Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Finlay on August 09, 2017, 01:20:48 PM
I didn't mean asoif or LOTR aren't good, just that once the tv/film ends they lack the widespread "popular culture" boost they gained from the tv/film.

asoif has always been good, but it was not like this in terms of popular culture recognition until the TV show.
In the same way that LotR and Hobbit books are still really good, and available for people to read. but the cultural seepage of them has slipped back down after the films were finished being released.

Of course asoif has 2 more books to be published which might re-hype for future releases... if you think GRRM is ever going to finish writing them.

that's what I meant, I didn't word it that well in the above post.


the minis are nice and the game looks fun, I hope you enjoy it!
Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Kallstrom on August 09, 2017, 01:51:14 PM
Yeah, they will probably not get a surge of hype like we are used to with the tv-show running from time to time, but as you say the coming books might generate some more interest. Hehe, but yes who knows if we will get those books or not - GRRM might fall off the deep end before that happens, unfortunately. :)

Aye, I hope that I will enjoy it too! Otherwise I will just use the miniatures for other games, so I think I will manage to come out on top from backing this Ks no matter what happens to the game in the future, which at least for me justifies spending the amount of money they are asking for. Cheers!

Post by: Zygmund on August 09, 2017, 04:51:19 PM
Agree on what you wrote above on the ASOI&F game niche in the market. Thanks for these insights. :)

Is there a size comparison of the ASOI&F figures? Their proportions are rather realistic, so they might fit better with historical minis than the flamboyant fantasy-anime that rules these days in popular fantasy figures (like, the Bones kickstarter mentioned above). Could they be more like the 'true-scale' 28mm than the 'heroic'? (Of course some of them are big for obvious reasons, like the Mountain).

Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Gankom on August 09, 2017, 05:08:10 PM
The faq says theyre 32 mm. So probably a bit large. The mountain probably will tower over a normal guy but that's rather fitting.

Pretty tall & large, then. Their 4x3 infantry movement tray is probably the size of a traditional 5x4 movement tray, if not even larger.

Wouldn't fit with any of my existing armies/projects. Already many Reaper humans are too tall or thick. A skip for me. But many thanks for the comparison photos!

Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Kallstrom on August 10, 2017, 01:21:50 PM
No problemo, the game and the miniatures cannot be something for everybody, after all! :)

The tray sizes are 14cm wide x 12cm deep for infantry, and 14cm wide x 12,5cm deep for cavalry. So the trays are larger than their counterpart when it comes to usual Warhammer sizes!

I also really think theh should have brought this out 4 years ago. They would have been able to ride the financial success better while the TV series airs. This time next year and its all over for the mass market - they will only be left with the book readers.
Title: Re: Kickstarters - Ongoing list
Post by: Kallstrom on August 15, 2017, 09:07:46 AM
The next season will probably be 1,5 years in the future, and this game will be released around april, so hopefully there will still be time to build a playerbase while the hype is going and when the game is a little more established I think it will be fine. If you like a game, its lore, and the miniatures you won't mind sticking to it, right? New fluff content is sweet and all but like with Warhammer people could still enjoy the game and get more new blood into the hobby even if new fluff was not on the horizon. But we will have to see, and I'll keep my fingers crossed. ;)

Last day of the kickstarter btw (15 hours to go), if anyone wants to get in on it! Less than $1 per miniature in the Starter Box now!

The LAM Bruegelburg kickstarter (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/822163699/bruegelburg-a-day-at-the-fair) is going strong, with some really nice unlocked stretch goals/add-ons. Part of the older series is also available as add-ons now.

The Reaper Bones 4 seems to go as usual. Hard to see what I'd do with so many more generic/special figures, but it's already become a sweet deal.

Only problem is these run at the same time...

I was pretty pumped when Reaper 4 started, but I'm actually losing a bit of interest. It's a sweet deal and the models are great, but I've backed the past two so I'm kind of drowning in adventurer models and the more generic stuff. This one doesn't have quite as many big things or special things grabbing my attention. The core set and the expansions have great value, and the Dreadmere one especially has me interested.

I was a bit disappointed by the first Mantic Kings of war kickstarter. My package was badly late, sent to the wrong address, etc.

I was almost tempted by the night stalkers and dwarves, but I think I'm going to sit it out. I have enough models between the previous reaper kicks and the next one.

These are good models, and realistic too. The only unreal thing is semi-naked berserkers in furs. According to the saga descriptions, they would look quite similar to other warriors. That said, within the fantasy-viking genre, this is likely as realistic it can ever get. I'm afraid my wallet will cry a little after these ladies...

In most games, Elves have many small skirmishing units. I think the Atlantisminiatures ones would work nicely as such.

They should probably make a head sprue for people who want an uniform look in their armies and whish to mix these with GW, Mantic, Northstar etc. ones.

That's the same lot that made the halflings Warlord Games are selling I think.

A lot of interesting stuff there - the only question I have is are the units of 20 single model figures? One unit shows some graphics of 5 different figures, but the others look the same.

I had a quick look in the comments and I think within every unit there will be several poses for the miniatures. But better check for yourself again.

I have some of them as a friend and I split a Kickstarter pledge. There are multiples of various poses in most units, so a bit old school but they aren't all the same pose like the old 90s GW units. Paint variations will help them look more variant.

Got my Ogres in the mail today ... only pledged for one set of three (set V1), yet after the fact picked up another (set V2), and the Ogre sized bull dog, too.  Might buy a third set (V3), maybe the leader next too.

Here's the kickstarter from before ... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/atlantisminiatures/atlantis-miniatures-ogres/description ... looks like late pledges are still being accepted.

Hoping to use these with my halfmen from Westfalia.  Someday. :icon_wink:

Kickstarter for a tutorial book on building miniature terrain from XPS foam. I have seen some terrain and tutorials on youtube by the author before - very good ideas and designs!

So many terrain tutors in the Youtube, and now they are making their own technique manuals. I still have my old Hints and Tips for the Plastic Modeller from the 80's, and haven't used all the techniques there. How many of these technique manuald does a man need (in addition to the Youtube videos)?

Can't recall which guy had a terrain manual recently, but I ordered one.  And it did seem to be very popular.  It might end up being more inspirational for me than anything else, and it'll allow me to rifle through it, without having to take too much time to view multiple videos.

The Reaper Bones 5 started yesterday.

Pizza dungeon? OMG what nonesense stories these Reape campaigns have!

Very undecided about most of the figures shown thus far. Hope to see them offering smaller sets from the core set. But the Trollbridge addition is a must!

I'm disappointed by Bones 5 and as of last night, there was nothing making me want to pledge.

I might want the towsfolk. Maybe one or two other figures that cant be purchased separately.

I'm not hyped about Bones 5. I think I'm just a little burned out by Reaper Kickstarters, but really there's not much there to grab me. I'm kind of interested in the mammoth and townsfolk, I generally like the giant, but not even any of them super interest me.

I also find the comment section to be especially whinny this time. Lots of people upset that there's no updates during (America) night, the updates have been slow (Because they blew through two weeks worth of updates in 24 hours), and even just lots of complaints about the models.

Wow! A real oldschool band of Empire characters! It's like a Mordheim band.  :smile2:

Pretty much my feelings too. Burned out is a good description.

I think the crowd at the gates got pretty annoying during Bones 4 already. Actually, I saw somewhere Reaper directed people to their FB site.

I like the group of Empire characters, although not thrilled with the dwarf, and really not interested in that halfling.  The Ogres and humans are tempting.

Same here. Not interested in the dwarf or halfling, but want the humans & ogres.

Hobgoblins - rather tall ones - from Midlam.

I really like Midlam - they've done several modest KS and deliver regularly.

I really like the figures, but wish they were more suited to regiment building. And that the KS was more suited to regiment building. That said, a good chance I'll get the set.

I feel like I am constantly faced with more Kickstarters than I have the capacity to support. I wish I had the money to buy and time to paint about 5x as many as I actually manage to.

Yeah - Midlam tend to do small KS with about 12 minis at a time, and seem focussed on figures for skirmish or warband style games.
I have sometimes bought two sets - which they usually offer - and then done some simple weapon conversions.

The gnomes sets I have managed to turn into small units of combat troops, with great weapons, spears or swords, supported by archers or crossbows.
If I want a 20 man unit I can put all the halberds/axes in the front ranks, and spears at the back.
