Critical Role announced plans to produce and sell two separate sets of miniatures featuring characters from its Vox Machina and Mighty Nein campaigns. Critical Role has partnered with Steamforged Games, the maker of Dark Souls: The Board Game, Guild Ball, and Godtear. The full set.

They look like the ones you can design at HeroForge (I think). I designed one for a PC I can playing, but it came to around $15.00. They could get a volume discount or make a mold if the numbers get high.

It is $60 plus shipping for 22 unpainted minis. NOt too bad, but not great, either - in terms of costs. The minis themselves look evocative and fun.

I wish they'd put in Jester's Spiritual Weapon and Kiri.

The $60.00 does not include shipping.

Looks like they have the files done, not sure why this is not slated to ship until March, 2019...

Probably when they could schedule the factory in China to produce. There's only a couple that do quality PVC, so hopefully they're using them and not something like Panda. CMON is doing HATE and Zombicide Invader, Monolith is doing a Pantheon reprint and Gotham Chronicles, etc.

Even with the files done you still need to mill the molds, get production samples, Q/A, etc. Shipping from China to the hub and customs takes about a month. The company is smallish, so they likely want this container to coincide with other releases in the pipeline. It's in keeping with other projects like this.

The spiritual weapon would have brilliant. As would a Bigby’s hand. (Bigby’s haaaaaand!)
I imagine Kirk is too new for a sculpt.

Ya, Shakaste was a cool character, but such a minor part of the story, I'm not sure why he was included. Jester's spiritual weapon would have been fun.

The price is OK - I would prefer to spend $ on minis I'd use at the game table and I'm not sure I would get much game play out of these. I wish I could find out more information if the price includes shipping or not. :p

"I killed people." "Yes, I’m very sweet!"

I imagine it was a timing thing. They wanted to have a comparable number of minis in each set but needed to get the sketches and sculpts done months ago, before characters like Kiri had even been introduced.

Fair enough.
Let me direct you to.... every other miniature Kickstarter and set on the market. :p

I agree, but I wish they'd been able to include The Gentleman, instead.

In all seriousness, I think these will paint up beautifully, but they are clearly intended for fans of the shows. They might get some general use, but clearly, this is not the intent of the KS.

IMO, they look generic enough to be used for a wide range of characters. A little creative painting and you'd never know. I'd think only fans of the show would really recognize them.

But by that token, I don't really need "generic adventuring party" minis. So I see the niche appeal, but that's about it.
