Fairytale Games is running a Kickstarter to create miniatures for their Battle Royale-esque card game. They’ve already more-than-doubled their goal, so it’s stretches for the next 33 days.
For those that want a bit more editorial coming from me: I think these look awesome, especially the Jabberwock.

From the campaign:

Fairytale Games: The Battle Royale has grown from a survival tabletop card game, where fairytale/folklore heroes and villains are pitted against each other in a Hunger Games (or Battle Royale) style deathmatch, to now a universe of massive story arcs which can be found in each game. By requests from many backers of our previous campaign, we’ve created this one to expand on the storyline with detailed miniatures to reflect the beautiful illustrations from the games that can be used in the games. Each of the characters we’ve selected for injection-molded immortalization are integral to the storylines of our main game, Horror Edition, Steampunk Edition, Zombie Edition, and our Fairytale and Legends of Time Expansions.

    Have you seen photos of physical minis or are you talking about the renders?
    Cause a render does not a mini make.

    • That’s fair.
      But the statement still stands that I think it looks awesome, render or not.

        It’s more a matter of managing ones expectations, which I fear many of the backers engaging in the projects kickstarter comments section aren’t doing.

        @Polar_Bear. With your connection to CMON, you should know better than most what the result of unmet expectations can lead to. 😉

        • Hehe. I am managing my own expectations by no longer participating in KSs that don’t properly present what they are selling. I find it interesting that this KS is doing injection molding, but not stating what the material is other than it being harder than X. For all I know they could be injection molding the figures in corn starch. I am not going to hunt for this info – it should be be obvious and up front. They want to sell their product I assume.
