About

 "...Aulë made the dwarves strong to endure. Therefore they are stone-hard, stubborn, fast in friendship and in enmity, and they suffer toil and hunger and hurt of body more hardily than all other speaking peoples; and they live long, far beyond the span of Men, yet not forever."

-J. R. R. Tolkien

Dwarves really are the best! While they're often a bit rough around the edges, they have the best accents, are insatiably loot-hungry, and will fight anything that moves—so we are going to make a bunch more of them! The dwarves will be cast in lead free white-metal pewter and will be on a 28mm scale.

We've assembled them into adventuring parties to make it easier for us to pack and ship. You can add an additional adventuring party to your base reward for $22. Additional individual dwarves can be added to your base reward for $5 each. For a slightly larger view of the minis, check them out on our blog. Here are the adventuring parties:

From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Brawler, Female Dwarven Bard, Male Dwarven Deathknight, Male Dwarven Druid, Female Dwarven Warrior

The League seeks out the ancient dwarven knowledge hidden deep within the lost caverns. They hope that, in time, civilized dwarves will once again inhabit those hallowed halls. 

From Left to Right: Male Dwarven Rogue, Female Dwarven Sheildbreaker, Male Dwarven Battlerager, Male Dwarven Mage, Female Dwarven Archer

Hogg's Tavern is not the sort of place that anyone should visit . . . at least not anyone who values their life or health. Surprisingly, it has regulars. Its patrons are usually adventures past their prime or looking to make a name for themselves. 

From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Mechanist, Male Dwarven Automaton, Male Dwarven Gunslinger, Female Dwarven Automage, Male Dwarven Investigator

Not everyone has embraced the "advances" made in the Steam Valley workshops. When the Savages descended on the valley, the Seigebreakers and their constructs helped turn the tide against the invading armies.

From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Vampire Hunter, Male Dwarven Undead Elite, Male Dwarven Necromancer, Female Dwarven Huntsman, Male Dwarven Warlord

The lands beyond Raven's Gate are shrouded in perpetual mists and haunted by the undead. Only the very brave or the very foolish venture there. Why not both? 

From Left to Right: Female Dwarven Barbarian, Female Dwarven Berserker, Female Dwarven Wandsmith, Male Dwarven Fighter, Male Dwarven Barbarian

The Iron Hills are not an easy country to grow up in. There's bitter cold winters and orcish armies locked in perpetual combat. That's not even mentioning the greatwolves. No one ever mentions the greatwolves.

Every Stretch Goal we hit will add more dwarves (or dwarf-related miniature items/companions) to the Completionist Set. When we have enough of these for a new adventuring party, a new party will be formed. Here are our stretch goals:

We hit $7,500! The Female Dwarven Cleric will be unlocked and added to the Dwarves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also made available as a $5 add-on.  

We hit $10,000! The Male Dwarven Buccaneer will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.

We hit $12,500! The Male Dwarven Barber will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on.

Dwarven beards are notoriously wiry and strong.  Consequently, a dwarven barber must also be a master bladesmith and chemist. His blades are kept razor sharp and (when fresh) his shampoos and conditioners are powerful enough to take the skin off an elf. 

We reached $15,000! The Male Dwarven Gray Warden will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on. 

At $17,500 the Female Dwarven Sorceress will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. She will also be made available as a $5 add-on. Is she evil? I don't know. Probably. You don't create a Hand of Glory by carefully following the ways of Moradin after all! 

At $20,000 the Male Dwarven Hammersmith will be unlocked and added to the Dwaves Vol. 2 Completionist Reward. He will also be made available as a $5 add-on. 

As we hit these stretch goals, more dwarves will be unleashed!

Risks and challenges

While we are fairly familiar with the process of sculpting and casting miniatures by now, there is still some risk that our project will be significantly delayed by factors beyond our control. To mitigate this, we will be working with manufacturers that are here in the United States that we have worked with in the past. Additionally, a large amount of the sculpting for these miniatures has already been completed.

We will do everything we can to make sure that the miniatures are to our backers by the date indicated on the reward, but our top priority in relation to the project is ensuring that the miniatures are of the highest possible quality.
