Now to the matter at hand. I have a little problem, it turns out I am addicted to Kickstarter. Who would have guessed. This little addiction has brought me some long waits and some disappointment along the way.
Now, none of this applies to the excellent Kickstarter run out of Michael Lovejoys company Oathsworn miniatures. Some run kickstarters for what appear to be months. Michael kept his to 28 days. He took part on the comments chat and his modelling changed to reflect the comments made on-line. In the end he produced 16 No. 28mm scale dwarfs for £32 GBP. Not too shabby at all. Then the best bit, at the time when all other kickstarters go quite, he kept up the momentum. Weekly updates followed and within a month the first parcels were being sent, EARLY!!!

If you like what you see, I am advised that Michael will be hosting a second kickstarter in the near future. I would keep an eye on his facebook page for news...
