The Dwarfs of Kragnor dwelt in their deep holds for thousands of years mining for gold and treasure. They seldom ventured out to the outside world.
Then 100 years ago a young dwarf - Yerrin was exploring outside on a snowy day and slipped while carrying a plank of wood and discovered the joy of speed. He landed on the plank which had split in two and flew down the mountainside. Something unknown by his fellow dwarfs. He thought about it for a short while and this time tied the planks to his feet. He had invented Skiing.
When he returned to the hold with tales of his downhill exploits the greybeards scoffed at his stupidity and called him Yerrin the mad. Yerrin was not one to easily give up and he persuaded some of the other young dwarfs to try 'skiing'. Before long among the young it became a popular pursuit.
Then 20 years ago the Chaos Dwarfs started to attack Yerrins hold and Yerrin led a group of intrepid dwarfs to climb the mountain behind the Chaos Dwarfs Deamon Cannon emplacement and they swept down the mountain at lightning speed and with their blunderbusses blasting destroyed all six of the Deamon battery.
From that day forth the Royal Dwarf Mountain Ski troops were formed and we present them here for addition to your army.
Extras - free with each unit
size comparison to the classic that inspired us
OK, now we have a £2,000 strech goal. Will be free to anyone who backs at least at the level of dwarf
Now we were not going to do any so as not to delay the project. However, if we reach £2500 then everyone who backed us for a Unit or bigger will get a self-assembly dwarf - he might be musician or a standard bearer or perhaps the leader..... its going to be random. Now a word of warning - these are not simple to put together but thats your problem
All miniatures supplied unpainted - may require assembly - these are not toys and are not suitable for children
Risks and challenges
This is our third KS - These Dwarfs are almost ready to go. We have learned the lessons of our previous two KS. No stretch goals this time - last time the extras ended up delaying delivery by slightly longer than we expected due to waiting for sculpts and moulds to be made. The gnomes have finally gone into production and will all be shipped before this KS ends.
So keeping it simple this time. A short sharp KS three weeks and the dwarfs should ship within three weeks of the end - may be quite a lot sooner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
