Over 1000% funded, and all but one stretch goal has been met. (Looks like they will meet it later tonight or early tomorrow, at the current rate.) And still 30 days to go.

Daaaaang.

Y'know, the color printed ones, with just 5 minutes of "anyone can do it" inkwash and/or drybrush, would probably come close enough to the hand-painted ones for general use. It's really contours/highlights that they are missing.

Smoked the recent mini Kickstarter of Eldritch Foundry. Not as easy as it seems to make a quality site and 3D printing. Hero forge has developed into a pretty nice business, my few minis have turned out great.

Wow! Those prices are actually really reasonable with the quality being about one step above WizKids. A good deal and a nice base to do extra highlighting if wanted. I might actually back this!.

I bought from them a while back, two figures and both of them fell apart. Not useable for tabletop, but for a shelf. Maybe the plastic they use is better now, but I'll stay away from them.

I was unfamiliar with Eldritch Foundry. Those are some nice looking minis - thank you for pointing me in their direction

I've only ordered the metal figures and they have held up fine. My kids are really irritated that my ranger's bow doesn't actually have a string, though, so I may have to add that.

Since they claim to use "cutting-edge 3D printing technology", I was hoping for a higher level of customization. I generally have very specific ideas about how my character should look, but I doubt they would be met by Hero Forge 2.0.

The 3D printing tech i not the limit, it is the ability to model your 3D figure. There is a lot of variation / custimization available in their online 3D modeling tool, but it is not infinite. Though if you have the ability to make a 3D model yourself, then that is another thing all together.

If you're more interested in the options for 3D modeling than the full-color printing, you should check out the stretch goals in this Kickstarter. (Most of which have already been met). Multiple limbs are now unlocked, high heel footwear has been unlocked, hand poses, multiple tails, new dragonborn head options, epic weapons, magic weapon effects, all of them have been unlocked.

Correction, 3000% funded. They met every stretch goal in the first few hours, so they added more. They met them just a few hours later, so they add more, and more, and more. Currently they are up to 29 stretch goals, and have already met 24 of them. There's still 28 days to go.

Hard to say, @darjr . I funded it because I already use their service and I want to help them add new features. I don't know how often I'll use the color printing service (I like to paint them myself), but I'm still going to benefit from the new stretch goal features. I feel like I've been waiting ages for custom hand poses, and I really like the new body features, new bases and new weapons.

Right now, you can get an unpainted custom mini for $20 + shipping. I don't know if that constitutes a "good deal" for you, but it is for me.

So... I LOVE this idea but is this Kickstarter a good deal?
From what I can tell, if you want the color printed minis you only get 1 dollar off now that the early bird deals are sold out. That's assuming the 40 dollar price for color printed minis stays the same from now until launch. The main draw for me was early access to the new tools. Whatever your feelings on a good deal is, I can say that compared to waiting and buying once it releases it's certainly not a bad deal.
