Crowdfunding Spotlight: Star Hat Miniatures: Heroic Scale Metal Figures Kickstarter

11 Aug

Well, how could I not feature this KS, given that the tagline for these minis is “Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom!” it’s pretty much right up my alley! Star Hat miniatures are a company I haven’t come across before, but they have my attention now!

As you will gather, these are a set of generic adventurer types typical for dungeon exploration as per the usual RPG/wargaming fantasy fare. There is an old skool feeling to these, very similar to some ancient citadel sculpts and a few other older UK miniature firms work, which is a good thing, although some purists might disagree.

I like them, that’s for sure, and there are more than enough options for classes that’d fit many an RPG group needing some miniatures to fit their party for some dungeon bashing tomfoolery!

I feel that the only criticism I can aim at Star Hat Miniatures, is that the “Dungeons of Doom” moniker is used, and i should be at least getting a free set of them to pay for the favorable review and the royalty bonus for using that in the set title! But joking aside, they look fine to me and (hint, hint!) If you ever want me to review a set in person on here, please do!!!

No doubt this KS will be fully funded, as it’s already almost there, but do your bit and check them out if old skool D&D type figures is your thing. Check out the link to visit the project KS page for more info:

Cthulhu calling! Mythos Foundry Kickstarter!

18 Feb

From time to time I forget to mention stuff, and this is one of the times. Maybe it’s a kind of dementia caused by something unseen, unholy and lurking in the recesses of m psyche…Like something certainly Lovecraftian as illustrated by this excellent KS I honestly forgot to blog about. You too can own a huge great old one in miniature, (if you can say that!).

The folks at Mythos foundry have lots of great looking stuff in this KS, including a cracking miniature of HP Lovecraft mimself! For those out there that love all things HPL it truly is a n excellent thing to get involved in as when it comes to getting a decent sized effigy of the tentacled one, they are few and far between. Scaled at 1/61 or Tru30 (TM? Tru30 is 30mm if you haven’t guessed) its a real monster coming in at 21 inches total (oo-er Cthulhu!) Pledges for backers to get one of these start at $150 (That’s £96.64 for those in the UK)

Can you imagine this terrorising your opponents on the battlefield? They would be shitting bricks!

There are only 6 days left to be in on this, so if you have the funds rattling round and your wondering as to what you’d like to buy yourself or that special deranged cultist in your life, go and take a gander at the project!

Cthulhu, Mythos Foundry Style! by Mythos Foundry.

Right, I’m off to make a sanity check now….
