Impact! Miniatures

Wednesday is spelled wrong. - Demitri Martin

Yeah, I am sure I've used that before, but I love Ice Bear, so there we are.

Anyway, it's the middle of the week. Halfway back to the weekend. Then, Gaming. Or, at least, I hope that for everyone. In the meantime, Snacks.

Today on the platter we have: Kraken Dice Releases Nightshade Set Tonight, The Little Soldier Company Releases Tenoch Lizardmen, Saddle-Goose Designs Releases Cthulhu Dice Bags, Single Metal Mystery Bags and Buy 3 Get 1 Free Back at Kraken Dice, and Impact! Miniatures Running Dice of Unusual Size Kickstarter.

We're halfway there, folks. Halfway back to the weekend. Woo! After this, it's just that slide downhill. I've got D&D coming up. I'm ridiculously happy about that, as I'm hoping we can finish off the story arc we're currently on. Not that I've disliked the arc, of course, just that it's hitting a climax point and it'll be nice to move on to a new adventure. You don't become an adventurer to stay just in 1 town for your whole career, after all. So, as I get prepped to take over a town because they were allowing an underground slavery ring to operate there, I should make sure I'm well-fed on bite-size gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Roll 4 Initiative Diffusion Dice Up On Kickstarter, Kraken Dice Releasing Trapped Innocence Dice Today, Talk Wargaming Teaches Us About Airbrushing, Impact! Miniatures Presents: The Lost KS Mini Project, and New Dwarves Available From Scibor Miniatures.

Impact! Miniatures is no stranger when it comes to Kickstarter campaigns. In fact, they're currently working on their 40th. In this case, it's for a trio of new fantasy football teams. There's the Ogres, the Halflings, and a female Norse team all going right now.
Halfway there, everyone. We're halfway there. The weekend is making its way inexorably towards us. And it's a 3-day weekend, too. It's looking like I'll be getting in some Guild Ball on Sunday, along with some grilling. So that's gonna be fun. Whatever you might have planned, be sure you're not famished by snacking on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: Sci-Fi Stock Art For RPGs Up On Kickstarter, Brigade Models Releases New 15mm Hammer's Slammers Vehicles, Happy Birthday To Through Gamer Goggles, The DASIK Shelf Up On Kickstarter, Eflix's Plague Demon Prince on Kickstarter, and Impact! Miniatures Running WHISPER Wave 2 Kickstarter.

Halfway there.
We're halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I'm going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don't really play, so I'll probably just veg at my place. I could use a relaxing couple of days, anyway. Though it does mean I still need to wait to break in my custom Guild Ball mat (more on that tomorrow. Stay tuned). In the meantime, I'm feeling a bit peckish, so how about noshing on some bite-sized gaming stories?

Today on the platter we have: New Options For Really Useful Box Storage System From Sally 4th, Statuesque Starport Able Spacewomen Now Available, New 3mm C-130 Hercules at PicoArmor, New Orc Hand Grenades Available From Kromlech, Impact! Miniatures D3 to D30 Dice Chains on KickStarter now with Cotton Candy dice, 3D Printable Tanks Up On Kickstarter, and Fantasy Stock Art & RPG Minis Up On Kickstarter.

This week feels like it's going by quickly. I was waking up this morning and went, "whoah... it's already Wednesday." Seems those podcasts are helping. Either that, or it's because I'm pretty busy over here. Lots going on behind the scenes. My screen's pretty full of stuff, to be honest. And if I'm going to get through all of it, I should power up on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: LARC 32mm Resin VTOL up on Kickstarter, Matilda Tanks Available to Pre-Order From Victoria Miniatures, New Legionary Banners Available from Kromlech, Final Days For Impact! Miniatures Elf Fantasy Football Teams Kickstarter, and Ratgard Previews Leader Ratss Battle Tank.

The week of "getting back to usual" continues along. Of course, we'll get back off schedule a little, since it's a 3-day weekend here in the States. But still, good to be on schedule while you can. But, seeing as we're getting ready for a 3-day weekend, that means we should be fully-powered up on gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New Skull Wound Markers Available From Kromlech, Last days for bargain deal at EZPainter, Chibi Giants & Swarms Fantasy RPG Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Acheson Creations Releases Short-Faced Bear Mini, and Final Week For Archmage Origins Up On Kickstarter.

It's amazing how different a figure can cost when made out of different materials. I know that's pretty common knowledge, but it still often blows my mind. Case in point: Impact! Miniatures and Royal Art Games have a Kickstarter running now in order to make a couple of Rolljordan fantasy football teams out of resin, as opposed to the metal that they're currently made in. Doing so will basically cut the price in half for said teams. Go check them out now.
Well, with a company name like Impact! Miniatures, it seems only right that they've got some teams out there for fantasy football (it's sort of what they were known for before they went into the chibi and dice market for a while there). Well, they're back with not one, or two, but three teams, upsized to 32mm, over on Kickstarter.
As we've seen from time to time here on TGN, games can occasionally go from one company to another to be produced. That happened with Impact City Roller Derby. Impact! Miniatures originally created it, but it was Game Salute that produced it. Well, Game Salute doesn't want it anymore and are looking to sell the license. Impact! Miniatures is taking the opportunity to get the game back, and they've started a Kickstarter campaign in order to raise the funds for it, as well as create new resin figures for it.
Wednesday already? This week sure seems to be moving along. That's very much not a complaint, mind you. I've got board game day coming up this Saturday. We're also going to be starting our new D&D game. So I'm very much ready for it to be Saturday. But if I want to keep up this pace, I'd better refuel on some bite-sized gaming stories.

Today on the platter we have: New female Torsos and First BFG Sledgehammer Pics From Victoria Miniatures, Suede Dice Bags Up On Kickstarter, Purgatory Miniatures Up On Kickstarter, Impact! Miniatures Running Chibi Knights of the Dinner Table Kickstarter, Legionary APC Turret Lascannon With Twin Plasma Gun Available From Kromlech, Ruins of Sanctuary 25mm Bases Now Available From Tabletop-Art, Minis Production Company Up On Kickstarter, Prism: Day & Dusk Playing Cards Up On Kickstarter, HSD Anthro Sci-Fi Miniatures Now Available, Flatminis releases first monsters in their 2D miniatures range, Two More APC Turrets Available From Kromlech, and The Army Painter's 9th Anniversary Sale Happening Now.

The work week continues along. It's already half-over, in fact. Hopefully yours is going well. Mine's not been great, but I'm making it through. Got board game day at the library coming up this weekend again. Should be a good time. But in the meantime, let's bulk up on some bite-size gaming stories.

On the platter today we have: Final Day For D13 and D15 On Kickstarter: Now with Glow-in-the-Dark Dice, BugBear Miniatures WW2 US Troopers Preview, Rebel Minis Dark Hold Goblin Adventures RPG Last Days On Kickstarter, Divine Art Playing Cards Up On Kickstarter, New Iberian Cavalry Available From Victrix, Relicblade: Bone and Darkness Coming To Kickstarter Next Month, Ashton Campbell rides into Blackwater Gulch, and Kromlech New Release: Legionary Lascannon.

The week rolls on. We're halfway there. The weekend is ever-closer as time marches on, and other sayings of "it's not yesterday anymore!" It seems people around me are feeling a bit drained. Tuesday wasn't the best for them, so they're gonna try and regroup today. Along with that, getting some bite-size gaming stories in their brain will help out, I'm sure. So let's get to that.

On today's platter we have: Jess is done for Purgatory, Men and Monsters of Ethiopia Cardstock Characters Now Available, Final Week For The Lords of Rock On Kickstarter, Triple Ace Games Running Viking Dice Kickstarter, New Kromlech Release: Legionary Frag Launcher, and True 13 and 15 sided Dice now funding on Kickstarter.

Who else here is looking forward to the re-release of Blood Bowl? I know I am. But what if you don't want to use one of the teams that comes with the official re-release? Thankfully, there's plenty of options out there for alternate teams and RollJordan and Impact! Miniatures are giving you another two to choose from over on Kickstarter.
And now for Fantasy Football of another type. Impact! Miniatures is running a Kickstarter campaign to get a couple new fantasy football teams created. There's a Human team and a Chaos team they're looking to fund. And by gum, they've already made it over their starting goal.
Impact! Miniatures keeps rolling along with their Chibi Dungeon Monster 2 Kickstarter campaign. They've been headed through stretch goals, unlocking 7 new Chibis. The campaign is just about to enter into the final week, and there's still more unlocks to be had. Be sure to check it out.

From the campaign:
Impact! Miniatures took a bit of a break from them for a while, but now they've launched another Kickstarter campaign. This time it's expanding their Chibi Dungeon Monster range. And it seems people are excited about it, since they've already made it up and over their funding goal. It certainly helps that there's an art book as well as a new RPG game to go along with the minis.

From the campaign:
Impact! Miniatures got a new Kickstarter campaign underway. This one's for Earthdawn fantasy RPG minis.



From the campaign:

The Earthdawn RPG mixes the familiar with the exotic; dwarves, elves, and humans mingle with the lizard-like t’skrang, the earth-skinned obsidimen, and the small, flighty windlings. This KickStarter will bring all of these varied races along with unique monsters for them to face to improve your experience playing the RPG. Since several of the races in Earthdawn are unique in fantasy RPGs, this project will be an opportunity to have miniatures cast that match better with your characters while playing Earthdawn.

The miniatures are 28mm scale and are all aimed to be very affordable on the gamer budget with costs of $2.33 to $5 each.

Airships vs. Aliens, from ZN Games and Impact Miniatures, has added a new game system to their Airships vs. Aliens miniatures Kickstarter.
What would you rather do, defend the Earth or invade it?

Airships vs Aliens


From the campaign:

Airships vs Aliens is a quick strategy board game for 2 players with one player defending the Earth with 10 Steampunk Airship miniatures while the opposing player attempts to win the invasion using 10 Alien ship miniatures. The game is pure strategy with no luck elements involved.

Airships vs Aliens has an easy to learn with just 2 pages of rules for gameplay but includes more complex strategies due to the use of limited command tokens offering an extra move during a single turn and possible reinforcements of previous destroyed ships. Rules for the game can be found at the KickStarter.

The Airships vs Aliens board game with the 20 miniatures is offered at $50 with free shipping (domestic or international) as part of the KickStarter

Impact! Miniatures has added new insectoid monsters and alien ships to their ZN Games Fantasy Miniatures Kickstarter campaign.



From the update:

Impact! has added 3 Insectoid dungeon monster miniatures to their current KickStarter. The figures are 26mm to 33mm in size and are designed to use with flight stands (which are included with the miniatures).

The Warp Flies are a base price of $4, the Acid Fly $5 and the Karapis $6 (with higher rewards levels able to get the figures for less).

The figures are also sold in swarm packs at a discount.

The miniatures can also be used as an Alien faction to battle the Airships currently in the KickStarter.

Impact! Miniatures has their latest Kickstarter campaign off the ground. This time it's for fantasy minis and steampunk airships for ZN Games.

ZN Games


From the campaign:

Impact! Miniatures is working directly with Kevin Bledsoe to relaunch 41 miniatures from the ZN Games miniatures line originally founded by Kevin's son, Chris Bledsoe. 6mm scale Steampunk Airships as well as 28mm Fantasy miniatures are included in the Kickstarter campaign running during September.
Impact! Miniatures has just a couple days left in their Chibi Pony Adventurers Kickstarter campaign. They've made 3x their goal, so check out the unlocks and extras for the campaign before it's too late.

Chibi Pony Adventurers


From the campaign:

Impact! Miniatures has entered their final 3 days of their KickStarter to create new Chibi Ponies. The KickStarter started with 6 new pony sculpts including Clockwork, Skeleton and Wizard ponies and they have be able to fund 8 extra new ones such as Druid, Sea Horse and Time Travelers.

The ponies are roughly 30mm in height and about $5 or less each as part of a KickStarter reward level.

Impact! has set a goal to unlock 7 extra figures before the project is over (First Mate Pirate, Barbarian, Bard, Alchemist, Chaos Hunter, Frankiepony and Vampire Pony). Stop by and check it out before it ends.

Impact! Miniatures has made it well over their goal for their Chibi Pony Adventurers Kickstarter campaign. They're now headed their way though stretch goals, as well as to GenCon.

Time Traveler Pony


From the update:

We unlocked the Ranger Pony tonight! Thank you backers! Great to see another stretch goal reached. The Ranger Pony will be a 5 point pony if you want to plan for it ahead of getting it into the miniatures list.

I'm packing up the truck for Gen Con tonight and our artist Lorraine is out the door as well so it might be Monday or Tuesday of next week before we can show you art for the Ranger ... but we have requested it and will show it as soon as it is finished.

The next Stretch Goal is at $9,750. For this one we are going to do a poll for what Monster Pony you would like to see unlocked and added to the list of figures you can choose with your points.. You have 3 choices for this one:

1) Hippocampus (Sea Pony)
2) Vampire Pony (with optional Cape Accessory (which could be used to make a Superpony))
3) Patchwork Pony (aka ... stitches all over by being assembled from different ponies and then animated by science (or magic) ... probably will have small lug nuts in the neck).

Impact! Miniatures has launched a new Kickstarter campaign. This one's to fund new Chibi Pony Adventurers minis.

Chibi Pony KickStarter


From the campaign:

Looking for great adventures and monsters for your next Ponyfinder game? Want to introduce your young ones to painting? Looking for new chibi miniatures for your favorite chibi dungeon crawl adventure?

Impact! is running a KickStarter to create 30mm Chibi style pony adventurers and monsters.

Impact! Miniatures is in their final hours for their Little Urban Achievers campaign.
They've added some new dice.

Dude Dice


From the campaign:

Okay so Chris and I are blown away with how well this project has done and definitely wanted to thank everyone as we enter the final days.

So I went through the entire stockroom including my personal collection and found a very small quantity of the dice remaining and have put those in the rewards for anyone that wants them.

Thanks again to all our great backers for your support!
