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.


Sounds like you can add on extras during the survey after the KS, so I'm in for a set for now.

New KS, raven and bear folk. Not of any use to me, but thought I'd share since it's an interesting idea (and Effin Cool is run by a nice guy.)

Seems the Reaper Bones KS grew to have something of a maritime theme, in addition to the normal DnD, dragons and monsters. A huge ship for 100 USD.

They're doing small diorama type encounters, each with a terrain piece and some goodies and baddies facing off.

They've also started to reveal a last minute steampunkish Chronoscope expansion.

Still 21 hours to go.

Forget the 6'x4' game, focus on the story beyond that. Because fantasy matters.

More elfs from Lastsword ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/lastsword/elven-lords-the-queens-duty

Mostly females, although one can also pledge for other previously released figures as well.

Kev Adams, The Goblinmaster, is sculpting some more goblins.

Two days to go. It's funded, and there is more to come should the support get better.

I'm all for nostalgia and the Olde World, but those last two are literally reinventing the wheel, and frankly, who cares for that?

My Midlam KS hobgoblins arrived. Beautiful figures. I may need to get some more, even if poses are limited. I had already planned on converting a few of the figures I already have.

I got some too - really nice figures

I like Midlam a lot - they do regular small KS and deliver on time.  :biggriin:

It sounds like they will be doing a second set of hobgoblins at some point, which makes me happy.

In the meantime, another hobgob KS incoming...

Definitely a bit more cartoon-y. Almost Rankin-Bass like. I'm on the fence about them.

I've been painting some of the Midlam hobgoblins and I'm totally on Team Midlam now. They are really great figuers. I was looking at their web site when the latest KS popped up in my email...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/cult-of-the-moon-goddess



I notice that there is a considerable savings in supporting their KS vs. buying later. So I'm tempted to get a set or two o these figures just because I like them and could possibly find a role for them in my plans at some point in the future. On the other hand, I'm torn because I'm trying to stop buying for "maybe someday" and trying to focus on "what will I paint this year".  :unsure:

Those look great!  I hear ya on not buying things for "maybe someday".  I'm not even sure I have an idea for what I'd use these for anyway, and I'm still interested.  Bad me! :icon_lol:

I got the KS notification through too.

I will probably get a set, as although I doubt I will use them as a 'cult', I can see uses for them as civilians, townsfolk, Ladies alongside Lords, nuns, and even fighters as some have easy conversion options.

Those look interesting enough that they might be usable with some tweaks and modifications. The human miniatures are not good though (some look like garbage to be honest). And the fact that the writing on the tank apparently says "norba miniatures" is also not too clever.

I pledged for two war wagons, one with soldiers on top, one with cannon and crew on top. :icon_cool:

Newest kickstarter from Westfalia ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/heroes-of-aventuria-2-siebenstreich

The orks are a different style.  I like the undead!  The humans are cool. :icon_biggrin:

Kickstarter by MOM miniatures: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/84134537/momminiaturas-novedades

They have some Empire-esque miniatures including Ogres and a Giant. Quality could be better, but they are very .. let's say affordable.

They've added some warbands to this project for purchases, and figures can also be purchased in groups of 10 or 20.

So I went ahead and pledged in the newest Westfalia campaign for the group of human infantry and the three viking like figures, plus postage.  It was nice to see that the $120 in Canadian dollars came out to a little over $84 in American dollars.

I've been tempted to get the undead figures too, but we'll see.

These are some fairly cool looking miniatures ...

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kmg/winged-death-undead-miniatures/description

Can't see a current use for them, unless I get more into fantasy.  I did pick up some undead from Westphalia's last kickstarter, so who knows what might heppen.  These are terribly evil looking bad guys, that's for sure.

Sold. Those look awesome. I'm hesitant to buy new miniatures right now due to concerns about job security. But I couldn't pass those up - the temptation was too great.
