Otherworld Miniatures Crowd-Funding: Dungeon Adventurers
Otherworld Miniatures is running a crowd-funding campaign on indiegogo, featuring four, 12-miniature sets of dungeon adventurers. And you're not participating in this, why?
For $280, you get all four, 12-miniature figure sets (a total of 48 miniatures): male adventurers, demi-humans, females, and hirelings and henchmen. Plus, as the stretch goals are unlocked, a whole raft of additional figures and adventure-dressing get added to your pledge.
Check out some of the miniatures that have already been produced for this crowd-funding campaign: here are the fighter, magic-user, cleric and thief miniatures from the first 12-figure set.
It's no secret that I consider Otherworld Miniatures the premium producer of old-school minis. I've posted about their miniatures on several occasions, about their pig-faced orcs and lizardmen, both faithful reproductions of the original artwork for those monsters. They also recently released an awesome lich, which is on my "must-buy" list.
The Dungeon Adventurers crowd-funding campaign is attractive to me because the figures are incredibly old-school, complete with light-sources and backpacks (see below).
Compare that to your typical figure from other manufacturers, which are uniformly heroically posed and are absent any evidence that the represented characters are actually dungeon-delving.
