Excellent!  Bob does dwarfs quite well, I would say.  :D

I so very nearly broke my no Kickstarter stance with these but didn't so that serves me right

These are great and a couple are absolutely awesome  :-* :-* :-*

;-) They'll be on the shop once I've sent all the KS orders out.

Out of interest, why do you avoid KS? I've never used it before myself and probably stay away because I would soon spend all my money, but as a way for companies (or individuals) to launch a project I think it's great… just interested, not judging.

While I am not averse to the KS scene, as you may well know, I would venture a guess that the results for the holdouts are:

- they are grumpy and old  ;D
- some folks just prefer the traditional model of buying models as they are released
- many people are wary due to the lack of recourse a backer has if a project goes belly-up (we have seen a few of them)
- some have moral reservations about large companies using the service as a 'pre-order' system when it was originally envisioned as a platform for smaller independent companies to secure capital.
- others don't like the idea of pledging for a miniature/product which has not yet been sculpted and thus the quality/style cannot be evaluated prior to purchase.

Those things being said, I would think that you, as the project creator, would agree that to produce so many figures would not be possible in such a short time span using traditional financing methods?

Agree with all of those, although "old grumpy" should probably be changed to "used to doing things the old way" or something similar ;-)

From my viewpoint I am thinking it will allow me to propose several options to the marketplace and then go with those that you actually want, rather than launching figures that I like but nobody is interested in.

I play a lot of 15mm napoleonics but don't make them (for obvious reasons) and doubt I could sell enough of them if I did so I need to try other things, which is always risky.

Old and grumpy was surely in jest... though I would admit most of us here on the board could qualify every once in a while  :D

I would start a new thread for these, Gary  ;)

The concept art looks stellar, even if they are not goblins.  lol
