plus KS exclusive



Alongside our range of miniatures, we are proud to present and include in our campaign a full set of digital rules and a unique adventure that provides a perfect setting for a great one-shot RPG experience, for absolutely free!



Our rules set contains OGL fifth edition racial rules for creating an intelligent dog, unique canine feats and class options, notes on a canine deity for divine doggies and magic items specially tuned for dog use (which of course, are chew proof as well!).

The accompanying adventure, titled “Who’ll let the Dogs Out?”, is designed to be played either with the characters included in the rules or with any party of equivalent level and tells the fateful tale of sinister magics, dark druids and a chance for some brave dogs to save themselves, their canine cousins and the local village from a terrible fate!

Both the adventure and the rules pack feature stunning artwork from professional illustrator and dog lover April Prime, who’s previous work includes the excellent Baby Bestiary for Metal Weave Games.





So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

I'm going to need every one of these. Who is doing the Kickstarter?

That's supposed to be a Corgi in the bottom row, right? It looks more like my dog Penelope, who is a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix than it does a Corgi. For that reason alone I'll need to back this.

PaintingPolygons (https://www.facebook.com/PaintingPolygons/) which looks to be a new venture from Rus Charles who used to sculpt & art for Warlord Games, and Mat (Hart?) who if he's who I think he is from his twitter feed is somebody involved in Steamforged Games

Thanks -- the more miniatures project management experience you (and we!) can find out, the better. I'm a little wary that Steamforged Games is currently running a KS, though.

Russ Charle's FB page : https://www.facebook.com/russ.charles.7


EDIT: Found Mat Hart's twitter: https://twitter.com/C4RP3R

I guess I have some concerns. First, is that Steamforged is already running a KS campaign for its Critical Role miniatures. Although Steamforged and PP are two different companies, Mat Hart looks to be part of both of them. I prefer for smaller companies to fulfill one project before undergoing another, though, if the two projects can be done simultaneously (eg. casting metal miniatures), then this is less of an issue. Second, is that Steamforged looks to have a negative reputation, as seen on the Critical Role thread. 

EDIT: Okay, got a FB reply! Hope to see more info in the KS. : "Hi and yes we will, the short answer is it's a partnership between two of us from the games industry as an indie project. Between us we have worked on and coordinated over 12 kickstarters under other labels

But this self-confidence can turn into "do nothing wrong" blindness, which prevents these people from admitting mistakes and improving themselves." -- September 3, 2014

Since when did SFG have a negative rep?

I had a look at the thread regarding the Critical Role minis Kickstarter on here, and didn't see anything there.

Note that the material is PVC.

Think that's a deal-killer for any of you?

If they wanted to offer a more expensive pledge for higher quality collector's versions, I'd be all for that, but I have no issue with it otherwise. Unless I should be concerned? Same material as the new Guild Ball sets, have there been complaints of low quality regarding those?

Yes, but only in the sense that most things attract complaints, especially when they represent a change from something else.

The quality can be a little patchy judging by what I've seen online, personal experience is fine, but based only on one box so far, but it seems each new release has progressively eliminated issues, and they're up to their sixth box when the Falconers Guild drops in August, plus the models from the Kick Off starter.

So I'd say you're almost certainly fine, unless you set your expectations sky high.

I'm fine with PVC. And it makes sense given that it seems to be geared more toward the RPG crowd. I'm sure if they are using a good enough company the minis will be fine.
