Speaking of Kickstarted minis, Iron Wind is doing a Chaos Wars Kickstarter.
Remember the adds for Ral Partha Chaos Wars back in Dragon magazine?
I sure do.
Looking at the pledge levels, I'm 99% sure I'm going to sit this out. There really isn't any level I could pledge at that will give me the minis I really want. There is a small temptation to just dive in for add-ons, if I can. I'm not sure.
But I sure do covet more of the Black Prince's Elite Guard, aka "Armored Bodyguard":
My veteran players might remember them as Prince Morlan Hagan's personal guard from that time they represented his rival Prince Vladimir Morfailov at a challenge match between the two wizard-princes in my previous 10-year-long GURPS game. Or not.
Hopefully this gets fund and goes well - Iron Wind already cranks out minis, so this seems like a relatively safe bet. If the minis come back into production, I will buy a bunch of that particular mini and any other of the Black Prince's troops. I spend a good amount of time back in 1999 and 2000 buying up all the sealed packs any hobby store or collector had on the internet, which netted me all of four packs of halberdiers and crossbowmen and orcs. I could use more.
