A Vast Variety of Dwarves: Can Be Yours!

(This post respectfully stolen from Laughing Ferret.)
A large party of Dwarves.. looking for a home... No, not the plot of The Hobbit, a Kickstarter project with just a handful of days left. It seems Kickstarter is getting ever more productive with gaming projects, and it can be hard to decide which to jump in on and which to let pass by. Stonehaven Miniatures' Dwarf Adventurers is one I had to jump in on. -- Click the dwarf to go check it out:

Stonehaven has come up with concepts for a set of 15 dwarves, each unique in a different adventuring archetype. In addition, they have added several more dwarves as they continue to reach stretch goals.
I found the rewards a bit difficult to grasp compared to some, but they have a nice check-chart to help out.
The $40 reward gets you the full set of 15 dwarves! You can also add on the further Dwarves at $4 each.
There are some really great Dwarf characters here- things not often seen, like a mage, witch, monk, even a necromancer. Also, several of the dwarves are female- also pretty rare to find. There are the standard iconic dwarves as well: fighter, berzerker, miner, brewer and more. These would make great additions to an RPG or as characters for a miniatures army. I'm thinking they'd make a good source for a skirmish warband for games like Songs of Blades & Heroes, Mordheim or other fantasy skirmish game.I'm a sucker for characterful minis, and I especially love Dwarves. And I can't find fault with the price. They look very fun to paint.
Some of the Greens are shown now, and that's probably the best way to judge them for yourself:

-I love that paladin's maul!

If you like characterful Dwarves, go check them out, there's still 5 more days to get in.
