    I love Mike's maps. I've got a couple of his Forgotten Realms maps blown up and printed on vinyl. I've backed this campaign too.
  2. Pre-launch

    I'm with you there. For human-sized minis I prefer metal as the detail is better. For big minis though (and especially bulky minis) it's Bones all the way. I'm sure you could get your money back and then some by re-selling any big minis you no longer want.
  3. Pre-launch

    I managed to hold off on the core pledge for Bones 3 (I backed both Bones 1 and 2 quite heavily). I still backed it for add-ons, such as the coloured plastic weapons and paints, just not the core set. I've gotten to the point now where I have enough PC/NPC-type minis for most situations and, if I don't, I'm happy to buy a metal version as the casting and details are a bit sharper in metal and the price of a human-sized mini isn't too bad.. For big stuff though, Bones is definitely the way to go. It's much cheaper, pinning is less of an issue and they're not so heavy to lug around.

    I thought about backing it, but it was $40 for the PDFs. That was just too high a price point for me to back at for a PDF rulebook without having seen the game before. Strange as the hard copy and PDF combo was only $60.

    And $540 short of $630k. Apparently the pledge manager funds will go towards stretch goals. In which case I fully expect the $640k stretch goal will be reached as well.

    $2k to go to $630k with 7 minutes left! How the heck did you make that post then?

    I was the same as you, except it was more of an internal monologue. I think I jumped on the 3 crate early bird when they were down to about 70-odd. The fences are definitely bigger pieces. Bigger pieces = More resin = Higher cost = Less pieces per set

    I wasn't planning on backing this, but I am tempted. I've got a 48 hour reminder set, so I'll see what sort of value it has at that point.
  9. My Paranoia package arrived yesterday too. I need to double check, but I think that was my most outstanding Kickstarter by far.

    I got a couple of sets even though I own a set of Tact-Tiles that I'm happy with. So when my set arrives they will likely see some initial use so I can compare them to my Tact-Tiles, possibly followed by them sitting on my shelf not being used for some time!

    I got something in the post yesterday, but didn't get a chance to open it. Hopefully it is all there when I get a chance to look at it tonight.

    I wanted to add some isometric paper to my Backerkit order, but shipping to Australia really doesn't make it cost effective. $20 shipping, which is more than twice the cost of the product. :(

    Despite owning a set of Tact-Tiles that I'm personally happy with, I decided to back for a couple of sets of these, just to see how they compare. Those GNL mats look pretty good too. I may end up grabbing some of those as well once they finally make it out to market. After years of waiting for such a product to re-enter the market (I just missed out on the original Tact-Tiles before they went OOP), it it nice to have a choice of products.

    How are they better than Tact-Tiles? I was pretty sure you could use both dry and wet erase on Tact-Tiles.

    I'm at least backing for the base program. For $25 it seems like it's worth a look.
