Crowdfunding Spotlight: Miniature Wargaming the Movie

1 Jul

It seems like an age has passed since I did a Crowdfunding Spotlight here, so I thought I’d draw attention to this very interesting documentary, all about the roots and whole aspect of the miniature wargaming hobby.

Containing interviews from industry luminaries, as well as the up and coming too, all in all it sounds like a great watch, and something different too (Well, as far as I know, there haven’t been any such documentaries before, let alone a movie!!) It’s something that we as a community should be supporting and doing our bit, so even if you won’t be donating to the cause, I’d emplore that you share the links to the KS page, to make sure that the film gets 100% funded in time (I’m pretty sure it will, since at the moment of writing it’s hit just over £7,000 of the target £10K needed!)

You can check out the KS page here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/954318608/miniature-wargaming-the-movie-0 and the website http://miniaturewargamingthemovie.com/ for more details on the project.

Good Luck guys!!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Halfling Adventurers Miniatures Kickstarter

9 Aug

Another crowdfunder here I wanted to highlight, is the Stone haven miniatures halfling adventurers kickstarter, which is offering many great looking 28mm halfling minis.

These are lovely looking concept pictures, and if they are anything to go by, their miniature counterparts will be impressive. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a comprehensive array of different character types for the wee hobbits, and some are quite adorable.

Stonehaven has a good track record for their KS projects, so no worries there as far as fulfillment is concerned.

You’ve got less than a week if you want to get involved, click below to visit the project.

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Reaper Miniatures Bones II Kickstarter

2 Oct

Now this KS is the one I’ve been waiting for! Yes, it’s the second Reaper Miniatures Bones 2 campaign over on Kickstarter.

Having missed out on the last one, which believe me, I’m still kicking myself about. If you don’t know, Reaper Bones miniatures are a cheaper alternative to their usual metal lines, made up from the majority of their already existing figures, just made in a soft polymer type plastic. The first KS was to expand the initial releases from a handful, to many new bones figures. So successful was the last campaign, the second one was sure to come!

Now, with this new KS, they again want to bring out lots more new figures, both big and small, but need us to help fund this task! What do you get for helping support this campaign? Oh my friends….lots and lots and lots of bones minis!!

I was pretty gutted I never got in on the last one to be honest, cash flow and  stuff gets in the way sometimes, so I ducked out, but wished I hadn’t, and I imagine lots of others did too.

So for a $100 pledge what do you get I hear you ask again? Well, take a look at this, and this is just the start, as the stretch goals get passed, they will be adding more figures to the core set, plus you can purchase add ons too. You know the score, more they raise, more goodies for those who pledge at the $100 level.

Expect the core set to expand a fair bit, they aint even at $1 million yet (the last one hit nearly $3.5 Million!) just what exactly will be added will be revealed when the goals are reached, but no doubt everyone in on this will bag plenty of nice miniatures. Yes, and before I get someone saying “You only do 15mm” etc, indeed that is true, but me and my boy do play warhammer as well, and while I love 15mm, lots of the core set will get used as nice proxies for our forces, as well as make a start on some new ones. I’m also seeing us revisit dungeoneering in 28mm (Oh my lord, what am I doing…..)

By now your guessing that I’ve backed this KS, and that is true as well, me and my kid are splitting this between us, and even so I’m a bit unsure about where I’m going to get the cash to pay for my pledge, I know that we’ll be well rewarded for what we put in. Reaper have a solid record for delivering a KS of this scale, so I’m in no doubt they’ll end up sending me a lovely parcel when everything is sorted.

Seriously, if your interested in this great KS, you should get yourself in on it, I missed out last time (I really wanted Cthulhu, but he never calls!) and realise my mistake when I saw what was up for offer. I say go for it and pledge, if you don’t have the money, go and find it, sell a kidney/grandmother/etc to raise it, you have a few weeks (well, that’s my plan anyway!)

Crowdfunding Spotlight: DINO WARZ Kickstarter

5 Sep

Not sure what to think about this one, and as much as I don’t want to poo poo anyone’s efforts with trying to crowdfunding a mini related project, but I feel there’s something amiss with this particular one.

I think the problem comes from the pic of the prototypes on the project page, which are woefully poor, which is a shame since the featured art is pretty cool, as is the protoceratops green that’s on there as well.

You see, that one pic is enough to put me off getting involved, which is a shame since I love dinos and big creatures.

If you’d like to get involved, follow the link below. Myself I think I’ll pass this time….

Bug Hunt Corridors by Fantasy Arc Kickstarter

13 Jan

Bug Hunt Corridors by Fantasy Arc — Kickstarter.

I would sell my grandma for a set of these! Seriously, these are way cool scenics being offered on KS at the moment.

The point is I really would have to sell my Granny, or an organ to afford enough to get a full enough set!

They are really good, don’t you think? Still, I recommend that if you do have some cash to splash, you couldn’t do far wrong with a set, they are among the best laser cut terrain I have seen. I can imagine this could inspire you to new ideas for 40k, Infinity and any other games with a scifi theme. Your Aliens will thank you for it.

I hate you Kickstarter for showing me things I like, but can never afford!

TTFN
