Some of the wagons from the Empire of the dead kickstarter
I bought 4 of the Hansom cabs and was very surprised to see the two occupants inside which are integral to the casting. "A night out at the Opera my dear"
The Wizard and cart Kickstater bonus figures.
Super figures, hardly any cleanup needed and they paint up really well.

My Otherworld miniatures from the Indiegogo crowd funding campaign have begun to arrive, and although it’s been a year in the making I must say so far these are excellent miniatures. So let’s focus on the good.
I have receive about half of the order the1st 2 box sets of Dungeon adventurers 1&2 + a lot of the stretch goal figures. The box arrived well packaged with the ubiquitous packing peanuts and the boxes were wrapped in large plastic bags. Each box set comes in a sleeve with great artwork on the front and painted examples on the back. They come in their own storage cases of a soft zippered, padded shell with foam inserts for each figure (a really nice touch).
Now I have not checked out each figure yet but the ones I looked at closely have almost to no mold lines/flash or any other imperfections that need to be cleaned up. The figures come with your choice of a detail metal base of dungeon floors or a plastic slota base plus another nice touch, felt pads for the bottom of the bases. The stretch goal figures were a great addition, my favorites being the henchmen figures but the camp site/treasure trove and supplies were such a great bonus. I have already primed the scenery sets and as stated no clean up needed just right out of the box.
As crowd funding campaigns go a lot of people have been disappointed but when you see the quality of the figures both in sculpting and in casting, most of the sting leaves. All in all I could not be happier with the product

Since birth Roneth and Aidelquar had been matched and had grown into a fearsome combination for the mountain kingdom of Reths Hold. As a Dragon rider and Dragon mount, they had lived and trained as one and Roneth did not consider Aidelquar as any less than that of a brother(and the more intelligent of the two). It was on Roneth 21st birthday that Aidelquar had made a fine warriors helmet and had given the Blacksmith two of his neck spines to add to the helmet s fearsome look. It was a great offering for a Dragon to make to his rider and one never forgotten. It was now many years later the two stood on the fell fields searching the Horizon for a marauding band of Se’leth Orcs. These Orcs were far too brave or stupid to be raiding this far into Reths Hold, but soon they would hear a roar and look upon Death from the sky.
Aidelquar; is from the toy company Papo, and started out as a two headed gold dragon(see below) I sniped off one head and most of the back spines and then re sculpted the area. I added the harness, saddle, blanket roll and storage trunk out of green stuff and other bits from the bit box.
All in all I am pretty happy with how they turned out :)
Roneth is a Bronze age miniature death dealer that came free with my last order. As always I am more than happy with Bronze age miniatures and their figures. The figure had little clean up, painted up well. and had a great pose.
