Zenit Miniatures announced that they will be running a Kickstarter campaign for a new expansion for their Nemesis line. The Rise of the Juggers is coming.

From the announcement:

It is our pleasure to announce that we are working on a new crowdfunding for the Zenit Miniatures Nemesis range of models. In this new adventure, and with your help, we intend to make Juggers, great size creatures which to expand the game with. Moreover, we will also focus on the creation of two new factions: the Exiled and the Nefalites.

We are currently working on the design of all these elements and we will be showing some of them. Stay tuned at the new Némesis adventure which we expect to be a success thanks to your help and support.

    Juggers? Aren’t those the girls from the Man Show?

  • estrus

    no no they are those inbred trashy clown rapper fans.

  • Bobofreak

    Or they will be some great new large miniatures from Zenit for their Nemisis game. The “Two drink Minimum, I’ll be here all the week” comments get tired after a while.

      I can bring you along to the next Pentecostal Grognard Revival if you like. We talk deadly serious about plastic soldiers and try our best not to dance.

    Brave after their Indigogo campaign for the same game (which also sought to make the ‘Nephalites’) failed hard:

    https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/nemesis-wargame#home

    They couldn’t even get the one guy at our club who’s been trying to push Nemesis to bother pledging for it.

    • They wouldn’t be the first company to learn from a previous failed campaign and hopefully Kickstarter will give them better options than indiegogo.

  • grimbergen

    Don’t trust these thieves at all — I never received my rewards for the Zenit Kensei indiegogo campaign and they are completing ignoring all my emails and messages.

    • That’s too hard. They haven’t produced all miniatures yet.

      It’s interesting when people argues that about little companies and then keep pledging for CMON crowdfundings which have same problems XD

      About this crowdfunding… Well, I hope they think of it MUCH harder than of last one XD

      • grimbergen

        If that’s the case, at least they can reply. I’m been sending them emails and posting messages at least once a month for the past few months and they never replied. I don’t mind delays but need to be kept in the loop.

          Of course you can choose what you like with this amount. Just look in our indiegogo. If you choose the Early backers miniatures you will have 35 euros still to choose.

          Another thing: Wich starter clan would you like?

          Cheers!

          Thanks!

          Your package was shipped two weeks ago you have to be about to receibe it.

          • roninjotatan

            You should removed the email address!

          • KENSEI MINIATURES

            sorry for the e-mail adress, I made copy paste without removing it. The package have been delivered. We have check it with the shippign company. So why do he call us thief?

          • KENSEI MINIATURES

            We shipped the package this date 24/3/2014 and it was deliverd 7/4/2014

  • After the indiegogo campaign failure, Daniel Pro Gil promised pledgers would receive their stock and, as far as I know, though it took more time, me and one of my gaming friend received it.
    In my case there has been a delay probably due to a wrong adress on the parcel. Daniel replied to my emails and I received an extra free figure with my pledge. There can be some delays with such a small company but usually you can trust them to correct mistakes and give feedback.

    By the way the second rulebook is much better than the first edition.

      Woah.. private disputes should remain that way. You should have contacted him by e-mail and if you felt compelled to reply here you could’ve just said “I’ll contact you by e-mail to resolve this”. Posting all of the details here is extremely unprofessional.

      • Bobofreak

        I disagree, someone calls me a “Thief” in public and I have written proof to the contrary, I share it with the same audience.

        • 4tonmantis

          If that’s the case, the first response should not just be “bam” here’s all your personal info.. it should be to diffuse the situation. That’s how professionals handle it. If he persists after that, then sure.. and even then you don’t list dollar amounts, e-mail addresses etc.. It would have been enough to show just the correspondence.

          • KENSEI MINIATURES

            Hello again. We want to apologize again for the e-mail adress not undeleted, that have been a mistake I didnt see it when I copy paste the messages. But we want to tell you that we have not publish his name or any other personal info like tracking number or anything like that. Sorry again.

          • KENSEI MINIATURES

            fortunately tabletop gaming news have deleted it. We want to thank them for doing that.

  • I backed the Nemesis Indigogo and got my stuff in February of this year. It did take longer but they didn’t meet their funding goal.

  • I’m pretty sure this was not voluntary.

    Zenit is a very small company it has some drawbacks but I’ve been one of their customers since the release of their 1st edition rulebook, I never had to complain about their after sale service and they are usually quite quick to answer any concern.

    @Bobofreak : luckily Zenit is a very small compagny. Such public accusation is not always welcomed by more wealthy companies or people… This is very prejudicial to a SME.
    I don’t know why grimbergen did not find a way to solve his issue with them privately. I wrote to Daniel Pro Gil, owner of Zenit Miniatures, today and got 2 answers by e mail today.
    IMHO this is either a technical issue or a misunderstanding.

    As far as I know there might be delays, occasionaly, with Zenit but they are trustwothy and they always deliver what you paid for.

    • Bobofreak

      I have quite a bit of their stuff, I love the aesthetic and I have never had an issue with customer service though I did not take part in their Kensai crowd funding. Just reading through the 2.0 rulebook and it seems to be a big improvement to me. I will definitely be taking part in their upcoming KS. I don’t seem to get the same level of frustration with KS that other people do as far as timeframe goes, I understand delivery of the product is a risk and delivery of the product on the original set date is a big risk. I accept that risk freely before throwing my money at something.

  • Lemminkaeinen

    I find the Nemesis aesthetic charming and unique. Their early stuff was a bit clumsy in parts but now they’ve found an interesting style. The Orpshans and the Rocavivas are especially nice, I think.

  • papasmrf667

    I really like that a) Zenit stands up to being called thieves (who knows if they are but still, b) The minis line is getting better and better. I may actually buy in this time.

    • grimbergen

      Well this sure got a response from Zenit, finally. Interesting that it takes a public outing to get an actual response. I like how they just tried to peg my username to an email address with the same…. I feel sorry for that person. If PB wants to, he can validate that my username is not anywhere near my email address.

      • You’re right (though I deleted it out of their comments anyway). I know that your e-mail address is really deep breath … oh… wait… I probably shouldn’t type that out now, should I? :p
