beautiful batch of dwarves you have there. Did you sculpt and cast them yourself?

This is what I would like to see WGF do in plastic! Sets of Fantasy Gaming figures. I know they have done the Orcs and Skeletons but I would love to see characters like the new Frostgrave Soldiers set in plastic. These could be combined for parts (i.e. Dwarf weapon hand placed on end of Elf arm, etc).

As for these figures, they are nicely sculpted and painted. (I like the idea of the peg leg dwarf!)

Thank you for your flattering opinion of my work.
Soon the project will be on Kickstarter.

These are nice minis sergey, they look like LOTR dwarves except with more black powder options and comic book character thrown in, which is awesome. :D

You really don't want them that way wmyers, trust me on this, dwarf hands will never look good on anything but dwarf arms (I learned that the hard way :( ). If you really want elves to be armed with dwarf weapons than you must either hope for open hands with separate weapons* or be prepared to do bit surgery because otherwise proportion issues are just to telling (elves and dwarves are not the same body shape, just aren't :roll: ).

*which have a lot more advantages from a diorama/customization/model building point of view than weapon with hands attached to them.

That tells me that you care about proportions - which is good - not like some of the metal miniatures makers who make figures with hands that look like they are wearing baseball mitts!

[Kickstarter] 28 mm miniatures with individual character

Hi.
We plan to launch on September 1st. 7:00 am New York time (12:00 London time).
Express your opinion about my project before its launch.
Write about it on the project page at Kickstarter.

Thank you.

Hi Everyone,

This is one of those ‘Good News / Bad News’ updates. So let us get the ‘Bad News’ over first.

The ‘Bad News’

On Monday the 7th September we will be closing down this kickstarter project. The simple fact is that it needs to be totally redesigned and reorganised.

Obviously to all of you who have shown us support by backing this kickstarter project we would like to give our whole hearted thanks. In fact it is because so many have backed it that we feel we should redesign and reorganise the kickstarter.

Right, that is the ‘Bad News’ bit over with, now let’s get to the more important ‘Good News’ bit.

The ‘Good News’

We are now working on redesigning and reorganising a brand new kickstarter to replace this one. Our aim is to produce a kickstarter where from the start potential backers will have the vast majority of information readily available to them in photos (size of miniatures, comparison with like figures from other manufacturers, whole painted units so that backers can see exactly what a unit looks like, photos of how our figures mix and match within units made up of other companies figures so that more variety is achievable for the gamer on the board or table top, and a whole lot more).

What might just interest some of you is that we are looking at how we can get the shipping costs reduced. (Shipping from Ukraine to either the EU or USA / Canada is not cheap, but we are investigating ways of getting the costs as low as we can, we make no promises except that we will get it as low as we can whilst keeping your pledges safe in the shipping process.)

One thing that will change is that we have been offering during this kickstarter a choice of all figures in either lead-free pewter or plastic. This has caused some negative reaction on some of the miniatures and gaming forums and we think this has caused many to hold off from backing this project. We have therefore decided that the new kickstarter will be solely for pewter figures. We will launch the plastic figure ranges at some time in the future, but for now we will solely concentrate on production of the lead-free pewter figures.

Although we were on target financially to reach our goal of course a successful kickstarter will also break through stretch goals whereby backers start getting bonuses for backing the project. With the new kickstarter the funding goal will be lower than it was for this project, this will be for the ‘core pledge level’ that is offered in the new kickstarter which may be slightly different to that offered in this kickstarter, but we are still working on that.

So overall the main points are:

- This kickstarter will close on Monday

- A new kickstarter is aimed to be launched to replace this kickstarter in the very near future

- The new kickstarter will be for purely lead-free pewter figures (no plastic figures)

- The new kickstarter will have a much lower ‘funding goal’ allowing for stretch goals to be unlocked

- Shipping costs will ‘hopefully’ be lower.

Yours, Rodrigo, Sergey, Alex.

You guys; Bvandewalker & Wmyers are so Right. Dwarf and Elf interchangable limbs/ hands (short and stocky - tall and slender) lets face it, it just will not look right. To me it would be the same as if you put a Wolf head on a Jaguar.

Hmm from a company that was at first at its best a "Good miniature maker, that became a Great miniature maker, then to basically a Subcontractor for others, now being the platform for Kickstarter promotions".
(sigh) Yea.. the curtain is really coming down on a good thing. :cry:
