    Atlantis Miniatures Ogres

    I got a bunch of stuff from the first project and they are great! Kind of regret not getting some of the dwarves.
  2. Ok....I'll probably watch the campaign. But my will seems to be stronger these days. Dropped Confrontation (and would have despite the obvious issues). Dropped Signum (despite being gorgeous models). Stayed out of Black Rose Wars. Stayed out of Zombiecide: Invader. Did not add the Joan of Arc dragon.... Pledged $1 to Chronicle X and won't be adding to it. And so far I've only pledged $1 to Bones 4. That one will change though.
  3. I already have Cthulhu Wars, and Deep Madness is coming. I'll probably skip this one.

    Templar's Forge: Miercendise

    Rob wasn't even thinking about doing a KS project, but the fans kind of talked him into it. Not a big miniatures one, but for "stuff". As for the business itself, they've acquired their own production quality 3D printer and reportedly will bring metal production in-house sometime soon too.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    I do too. But I'm staying strong.

    Deep Madness

    I'm eagerly awaiting this one. Should be delivering this fall if I remember correctly.

    Zombicide: Green Horde

    Mine arrived Monday.

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    I can safely skip this one, I think. Kind of have to. Car repairs add up quickly.

    Legends of Signum

    At the very least I need those wulfen sometime.

    Mythic Battles: Pantheon 1.5

    You definitely had a much better experience. Unfortunately, the problem with the US fulfillment partner is that they couldn't get any additional stock from Monolith to actually fulfill the missing items. Supposedly Monolith was pulling stock from Asia to help with this, but that was at least 3 months ago. And now they have switched partners - in theory. So I'm really not expecting to get any of my outstanding items until they complete the reprints for this new KS.

    Mythic Battles: Pantheon 1.5

    Agreed. And honestly, Batman was a re-skinned version of Conan. This is a reboot of something that they haven't even completely fulfilled from the first time. And the new models just aren't grabbing me. And actually, I had a chat with a friend last night and decided that this game is much more about the minis than it is about the gameplay. Not to mention that it takes up a ton of storage space. So, off to ebay it will go.

    Mythic Battles: Pantheon 1.5

    So, let me define "fun" a little more. Effectively, the game comes down to luck of the draw on getting the cards you need/want in order to activate the unit(s) you want to. But at the same time, you can't be too aggressive in playing cards out of your hand or you then end up with only being able to draw and play a single card each turn. That can be desperately frustrating. The mechanics themselves are easy enough, but as normal these days there are a plethora of special abilities to try and keep straight. You'll also need a fairly sizable table to put the board and all the unit dashboards out. I don't think it's any bigger than Chthulu Wars though.. If I remember correctly, human units are approximately 30/32mm. The monsters and gods can be MUCH larger, of course. As for my personal frustration, I'm missing somehere around 8 items from my pledge. I contacted the fulfillment center in February and we got everything logged. Followed up in late March...got a canned response about how they had the request and it would be processed. Contacted Monolith directly in late April - no response, but I did get an email from Funagain stating that they were closing up shop and to contact Monolith directly. An hour later I got another email from Funagain stating that they were, in fact, still handling distribution. All went silent for about 10 days - when I got another email from Funagain stating that they were no longer handling fulfillment. A few days later Monolith finally acknowledged it in a KS update and stated that ShipNaked would be handling the rest of the fulfillment (for North America and Japan, anyway). And that's where we stand. No idea when I'll actually get those missing (and 1 damaged) items. My suspicion is that they won't be coming until they get everything reprinted as part of this 1.5 campaign.

    Mythic Battles: Pantheon 1.5

    I'd like to get in on this one, but since I've been waiting months for all the stuff they didn't ship (and absolutely no idea when they will get shipped), I'm actually leaning toward just selling the game and being done with Monolith. The game itself is rather fun. But primarily a 2-player game - despite having options for 3/4 player games.

    Slumbering Oblivion

    Already have a thread for this one.

    Scenic Grass Tufts and Flowers Kickstarter

    I ended up with Burnt Debris tufts (for western models), Black Flowers (for my Jutes horde), Mossy tufts, and Warm Mix flowers. Have a feeling that I'll need many more when these hit retail.
