A bumper week for new Kickstarter projects this week, so much so that I’ve had to spli them down into sub-categories for this week!
Hasslefree Miniatures have a KS project, which is funding a new project – Kev White is sculpting miniatures based upon the fantasy artwork of Matt Dixon, who has produced a series of female ‘pin-up’ illustrations. Each picture will inspire three different miniatures – the first based on the artwork, the second being a ‘skyclad’ version of the miniature, and the third being dressed in garb suitable for winter (and thus a certain Frost-based skirmish game?)
Funding for this has gone mad, having currently exceeded it’s £4,000 funding goal by over 900%, and it still has 16 days to run! It finishes on October 2nd 2016.
Axe and Brimstone is new expansion for Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes. The project is funding a new campaign book for these rules, plus two new warbands – Possessed Dwarfs and Halflings. Certain pledges also include a 3′ x 3′ terrain mat.
The project is over 100% funded, and is due to finish on the 11th October 2016.
Turncoat Games WW2 CavalryTurncoat Games are designing a range of 28mm World War II Cavalry figures for the Russian and Japanese armies. These are planned to be produced in a mix of resin and metal, and have separate arms, legs and heads to give multi-pose figures.

Shieldwolf Miniatures are running a project to fund a new box of 28mm multi-part plastic Forest Goblins. A box will contain 25 miniatures.

Stonehaven Miniatures are funding a range of RPG characters with a difference…they are all giant races! (Trolls and Giants)
These are proving popular, and the project has reached almost 200% of it’s original $7.500 funding goal. It’s running until the 4th October 2016.
Masters of the Deep is a Miniatures War Game based on the boardgame of the same name. The game will contain 55 plastic miniatures from four different factions – it certainly looks interesting!

Finally, if your 28mm Pulp/Steampunk/WW1 game demands a big playing area, how about 73 inch long Zeppelin?
Better hurry though, as according to the project, there are only three more available, although at $350 a time, this might be something of a luxury purchase!

They are looking for a $1,000 funding goal, and are currently around 20% funded. The project is running until the 3rd October 2016
Something of a luxury product, but interesting all the same. The Box of Holding is a Dice Vault, Dice Tray and miniatures storage box, created in luxury wood.
The project is after $5,000 and is currently 80% funded – it finishes on the 12th October
