Thankfully safe. No more kickstarters for me.

I just bought in:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ho ... miniatures

Could have been a clearer offer, took me two goes. But the Angevin War is looking like an interruption to my painting schedule.
Turning Gold into Lead (and plastic, resin and slightly charred MDF)

Me too, I am going for metal rather than resin.
I was stunned to see that both the £450 top pledges went in the first two minutes!

I hope this doesn't get out of hand, small KS projects that get too many backers can be a problem.

Yes, a little worrying. In theory as the masters are made and he's Mr Footsore it should reduce the risk.

Edit: just found some old Slingshot articles on the Angevin War, essentially a PhD thesis by Andrew Fisher which amounts to a lot of detailed information, plus a ‘solo’ campaign and some specialised DBM lists. This needs celebrating :moredrink:

If I could have justified the expense I was tempted by the "Have Paul Hicks sculpt you as a character" pledge level. But I've realised that I might just be able to scan my own head and print it out...if i'm that desperate to get my ugly mug on a figure :D

I've got a couple of books that cover the war. I've also got a lot more figures that are suitable hidden in the garage. So as basement Mark has a few days off at the end of the month I might put him to work getting all the boxes out :)

I’ve decided it’s a firm no for me. The figures are gorgeous, but I really can’t do with another Dark Age army. I have 5 or 6 already.
