Personally, I backed this project for the cardstock laminate minis. I don't have the money or time for real minis. I was impressed by the minis that came with the Pathfinder Beginner Box and my son loves them, so I figured this Kickstarter was a no-brainer - you get about 400 minis and 16 stands for $25. Plus the art is great, here are some samples:
The project is about $500 away from its third stretch goal of $7500. If you have any interest in the project, make sure to pledge soon.
