The Fantasy Game Figures project provides backers with unique wooden fantasy figures at an affordable price. 

Figures with this level of detail have only recently been possible due to new precision laser-cutting technology. Each figure is highly detailed and much stronger than your typical meeples ensuring that every tail, horn, and sword tip are durable and incredibly difficult to break. 

The figures range from 19mm to 32mm tall making them perfect size for RPGers, board gamers, and collectors alike. This set includes everything a game master needs to set the stage for an epic RPG adventure; heroes and monsters, large and small.

As a game designer and RPG gamer myself, I have always had a need for affordable figures. However, as much as I love molded miniatures, I simply cannot afford to build the large, diverse collection needed for most role playing games. That's why I have set out to create a high-quality, inexpensive alternative to molded miniatures. 

With 30 unique figures for just $20, you can now quickly build a large collection and have an army of Goblins, Orcs, and Dragons chasing a party of Heroes on the cheap. For instance, at the Game Master Reward Tier you can get 120 figures for only $60, that’s only $0.50 a figure. Or better yet the Army Builder Reward Tier, 300 figures at $0.42 a figure! Compare that to the cost of miniatures.

So, if you are like me and want an army of figures to use in games like Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, or any number of board games, even replacing the plastic pawns from old classics, then this project is for you. Whether you’re a fantasy buff and would love to have these figures to spark creativity or to make your desk at work that much more awesome, please show your support and help make this project a reality. Thank You!

P.S. What a great Christmas gift this would be for any gamer!

P.S.S. You don't have to take my word for it!

Excellent Idea Review - Fantasy Gaming Figures <<< CLICK HERE!

What exactly are you getting!? 30 unique fantasy figures! Featuring Heroes, Monsters and Fantasy Creatures. 

Each set contains (one) of each of the following figures:

PLUS potential FREE figures added through stretch goals!

Looking for even more awesome figures? and maybe a fun new game while you're at it? Check out Dungeon Heroes, your lunch break dungeon crawl! Dungeon Heroes with the Expansion Pack brings another 18 figures to your collection (12 unique designs).

Dungeon Heroes is a fast paced, tile-placement dungeon crawl, involving press-your-luck and memory aspects. 

One player controls an adventure party of four heroes: a warrior, a wizard, a cleric and a rogue. The other player is the dungeon lord and is responsible for creating the dungeon and controlling the monsters within. 

The dungeon lord constructs dangerous floor layouts by placing tiles he has drawn turn by turn. During the dungeon setup, the Hero player has an opportunity to capitalize on any mishaps made by the dungeon player. However, after the ninth turn, the monsters within the dungeon enrage and begin to hunt down the heroes at the command of the dungeon lord. The heroes must unravel the dungeon lord's scheme by collecting items, disarming traps, killing monsters and using powerful magic to reveal hidden areas. The Heroes must locate three treasures within to win the game. The dungeon lord, quite naturally, must stop the heroes from doing this...

The Dungeon Heroes: Expansion Pack includes two separate expansions to the base game. This pack introduces a new Hero, new monsters, new tiles all that feature new and exciting game mechanics.

The Dragon & the Damsel:

This expansion features an exciting classic tale of rescuing a damsel in distress from an all powerful dragon. If you rescue the damsel, she joins the party as a 5th Hero and lends her aid to your quest for treasure. Be careful though, for while you are searching for her you may encounter the toughest monster yet, the Dragon!

Lords of the Undead:

Beware of the trapped souls that linger in the dungeon. This expansion features the ghostly story of a lady long forgotten and a necromancer dabbling in dark magic. Amongst this angst, the Heroes come across an underground marketplace offering its help.

A special thanks goes out to Brittany Coe for her amazing talent. Brittany is the artist for the Fantasy Gaming Figures project and she has really been able to capture the imaginative Heroes and Monsters that make up the adventures we love! 

Thank you very much for taking the time to visit this project. Without Kickstarter and it's supportive community, Gamelyn Games would not have gotten the start that it did with Dungeon Heroes. I would not have the experience or pleasure of having published Rise! and The Lost Dutchman with Crash Games. 

Please know that I value you, the Kickstarter backer, at the highest level. I understand that you are the most important part of my business and I will work everyday to prove that. I strive for perfection in everything I do; and you can trust that I will always deliver a top notch product that is engaging and long lasting.

Furthermore, I believe communication is the key to all successful relationships. I make myself available via email any day and any time to answer any and all questions. 

Please do not hesitate to email me directly at Michael@GamelynGames.com, contact me on Twitter @Gamelyn_Games, find me on Facebook.com/GamelynGames or send me a message on Kickstarter.

Thank you very much for helping me live my dream! Please share this project with your friends.

Sincerely, 

Michael Coe, Founder & CEO

Risks and challenges

I'm proud to say that I am working with Panda Games Manufacturing again to produce these high quality figures. Panda Games has earned a wonderful reputation within the board game industry for always producing products of top notch quality.

I have worked with them on several projects and have developed a fluid working relationship. I have a complete understanding of their manufacturing expectations including time frames and file requirements.

Being that the Fantasy Game Pieces have a fairly straight forward production, I do not expect any delays in production.

PREVIOUS WORK WITH PANDA GAMES MANUFACTURING:

I bring the experience of having worked on three publications with Panda Games; Rise!, The Lost Dutchman and Dungeon Heroes.

Dungeon Heroes with the Expansion Pack features 18 highly detailed wood figures just like the ones in this project. I am very familiar with the requirements for developing these Fantasy Game Pieces.

SHIPPING:

I am proud to say the professionals at Game Salute will be handling the distribution of the Fantasy Game Pieces in the same timely and professional manner they have developed a positive reputation for.

Thank you ahead of time for your understanding and patience regarding any unexpected obstacles that may arise. Know that I will work fervently every day to assure this project runs smoothly and is delivered on time and intact.

DUNGEON HEROES STATUS:

Dungeon Heroes, my most recent KS project, concluded production mid April. It shipped from the Chinese production facility April 23rd and is expected to reach the Game Salute warehouse at the end of May. The games will then be shipped out to backers in June, one month ahead of schedule. July will be it's release date for retail. Thanks to everyone who made Dungeon Heroes a reality! It couldn't have been done with out you.
