Now I found this wonderful Kickstarter - you really should check it out, if nothing else than for the fantastic Rhino/Razorback variant that is being offered for almost £10 less than what GW wants you to pay. I am going backing this right now.

Brothers of Iron by curtis fell - Kickstarter



And then I found another one, and this one is tragically underfunded, and really needs attention, because this is really cute and useful.

Brothers in Iron now have their pictures up of models, infantry, the MASSIVE apc and the heavy weapons. Looks really nice. I am getting a bunch!


Oh wow, I am on a Kickstarter -roll!

Yes I know that might narrow the field somewhat, but still, fans are bound to be around, and they are crowdfunding their sequel RIGHT NOW!

I enjoyed the first one. Just not a fan of Indiegogo due to some issues in the past with projects that got funded but there wasn't really any accountability for where the money was actually spent. Hopefully that's changed.

Well that's the first kickstarter I've thrown money at. Does seem quite cool, pity the basic stamp wasn't 40mm so here's hoping he carries on and makes more of the 40mm stamps. 8)

As a side note I've always been a bit worried about kickstarters, watched a couple that have promised the backers a lot for stretch goals and then months past the deadlines still not delivered. This one seams pretty straight forward and upfront.  :)

Wrath of Kings by CoolMiniOrNot - Kickstarter looks interesting you certainly get a good amount in the starter boxes given that they say model size per game is 10-50 and the starter boxes are currently sitting at 24-30

Another base stamper project.

I like the idea of the bigger pad and being able to use it for larger bases or just use different areas for smaller bases... Will be interesting to see the rest of their range.

Bunkers galore. Pretty cool I thought, a bit simple but very nicely executed.

Forward Operating Base: Kiris - 28mm Scifi Terrain by CorSec Engineering -


When it rains it pours.
The possibilities for something like this are... interesting. And at the price they are offering this is a steal, and then some.

Feeling vulnerable and exposed? Feel that your current defensive position just won't cut it? Well, I am sure we can find something to help you with that!
I found this Kickstarter for some awesome-looking defenses for your armies. I am getting a bunch of these as they are cheaper and better-looking that GW's Aegis defense line at least.

Based on my previous experience with Defiance Games, I'm extremely hesitant about backing this, although they do look pretty good.

Yeah they had bad production runs in the past, with long lead-times. However, the people I know who have gotten the products are extremely happy with the quality.

Battle Systems? Sci-fi Modular Terrain by Battle Systems Ltd - Kickstarter

Looks pretty good, might take a while to set up, but limitless potential for different terrain set ups.

They mostly come at night; mostly.

Also found this...
Don't think I'd back this but do think that it could be the future of table top miniatures.
