Atlantis Miniatures Kickstarter

The Atlantis Miniatures Dwarf Kickstarter is now live. I pledged within the first few minutes, being a massive dwarf fan. Not that dwarfs are massive of course, or me for that matter, it's my fandom that is of huge proporions.

I pledged for the V2 level, which gives a unit of dwarf warriors, a unit of dwarf crossbow, a unit of dwarf ram riders and a unit of dwarf hog riders, plus a leader riding a huge yak style beast. In truth, I have never been a fan of dwarf cavalry, but the yak mount just looks so awesome. I can also live with the ram riders. The hog riders - not a fan. However, the bundle was cheaper than buying the units separately, maybe I can get a hog fan to swap some figures.

So now I just have to sit back and wait for the campaign to finish. There is the unlocked items to look forward to, which includes a female unit, a war bear, villagers and more. It would be nice if a few characters were released too.

The kickstarter runs until March 29th, with an estimated delivery date of April 2018, a year from now. Yes, that is a long wait for those unfamiliar with kickstarters. And for those who are familiar, yes it's likely to slip by two or three months, or even more if we are really unlucky. It does sound like the first kickstarter they ran completed nearly on time and they have learnt lessons from it, so hopefully delays will be kept to a minimum.

Get along and take a look - you can never have too many dwarfs!
