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.

Goblins with bat wings!

And some hunting dwarfs/gnomes?  These figures look wonderful!

The Reaper Bones 5 started yesterday.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/reaperbones5/reaper-miniatures-bones-5-escape-from-pizza-dungeon/description

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.

Took a better look.... I'm interest in the hunters and the gobbo characters. Would like the previous gobbo warband too.

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.

OK, the Greenskin Hunters got me. I'm in. Also, it was just funded, so rather safe to join now. There's a nice bonus figure coming at 5700 .

Three more Kickstarts that may be of interest to the Empire hobbyist:

MDF terrain, easy to storage, with options for Gothic, timber-framed, and timber-framed ruins (think Mordheim)
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/madbobminiatures/folding-terrain-by-mad-bob-miniatures

3d printable fishing village, very ramshackle oldschool, with a bit of Laketown influences
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/968660672/fishing-village

Female witch hunter band of five! (resin)

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.

Missed posting this, its over, but great figures (again).  :oops:

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.
