[Kickstarter] Midlam Miniatures Dwarfs
« on: October 02, 2021, 03:19:50 PM »
Haven't seen this one mentioned. Midlam Miniature have just started another kickstarter, this time for dwarfs

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/dwarves-a-class-of-their-own



12 figures in total, at £30 for the 12. Delivery December 2021

Project runs until October 16 and already well over its target

I am very tempted, despite having more than enough dwarfs. Does anyone know how these scale to old GW dwarfs, or even modern Reaper ones?

The image you linked has the height in mm, surely that should give you a pretty good ballpark for relative sizes?

Made the mistake of poking around their catalog.  Holy cats, they've put out a lot of stuff since I last did a proper look-through over there.  So many figs I want for Frostgrave and adjacent projects now.  Sigh.

And man, I'd almost forgotten Dragondice even existed.  Nostalgic.

Thanks :D I'd actually managed to miss that when looking at the pictures. I'll dig out some figs and have a check.

I backed their Pulp halflings KS earlier this year, but so far I've managed to resist buying more figures. So far...

I've decided to back them, even though they may be a bit small.

The heights quoted seem to be overall figure height. Most are around 22mm, while the wizards are 28mm, presumably because of the hats.

These are pretty much the same height as some Ral Partha dwarfs I backed in another KS a few years ago. They are lovely figures, but almost too small to use alongside even old school GW figs.

At best the Midlam ones will work with old school GW and Reaper, at worst they should work with Ral Partha. Either way, they should prove useful :D

Well, they are Dwarves, after all.  :)

And surely they vary in height like humans do.  The last gaming group I was in before COVID ended that sort of thing had over two feet of difference between the tallest and shortest people in it.

Yes.  Even if I could have resisted, aardtacha would have made me back it.
