    Mantic Terrain Crate

    If they did, then it's a shame Mantic never updated the kickstarter FAQ. Even now it still states it's the same as The Walking Dead plastic, and as I stated previously, the Walking Dead terrain is not bendy at all.

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    I can answer that, cause it's the reason I dropped out of the kickstarter. Mantic was never clear on the hardness of the plastic being used. They kept on saying it would be the same as the minis found in their Walking Dead game. Mantic made the exact same statement regarding The Star Saga plastic. The problem with that statement is The Walking Dead terrain, the vehicles, batticades, and supply tokens, are made of a hard non bendy plastic. Similar to that of the Bones container or Wyrmgears wings. The minis of the Walking Dead Characters are made of a slightly softer plastic, still firmer than Bones though. The Star Saga character minis are made of a similar plastic as the Walking Dead characters. Howevet The Star Saga terrain is a much softer bendy plastic that is nowhere near the hardness of the Walking Dead terrain. Fear of not knowing what I'd be getting is what made me back out of this campaign.

    I'd be very interested in hearing your thoughts on it after you've used it. And congrats on getting your hands on the beholders.

    I understand what you're saying, but I think your suggestions would have made her look a lot like many of Reapers already existing albeit smaller dragons. In my own opinion... The chunkiness, in addition to her size, help make her unique.

    I don't think I've ever seen Sir Forscale look so tiny.

    From what was said in the video, it would seem to be different from that. Should also note that the minis in the core set will still be in the current Bones material. Minis in the expansions and some if not all of the addons will be in the new material. Very curious to see it in person.

    There's been an extension. You actually have until September 3rd to add to your pledge. You're welcome.

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    In April 1921, Lt.-Col. James “Buster” Sutherland Brown, Canada’s director of military operations and intelligence, drafted the Canadian plan to invade the United States, known as Defence Scheme No. 1. While Brown is often described as a loose cannon, he was actually following orders from the chief of the general staff, who was concerned about an American invasion. After the First World War, America began to supplant Britain as the pre-eminent global power (Britain owed America $22 billion after the war) and so the concern that Canada might once again become a battleground for conflict between the two more powerful countries made some sense. By May 1930, when the Americans came up with their scheme to invade Canada, called War Plan Red, senior American officials were seriously considering the possibility of a war with Britain. The Americans shared the same concern the Canadian drafters of Defence Scheme No. 1 had back in 1921: namely that growing economic competition between the United States and Britain could boil over into a military conflict with Canada as the battleground.

    Plus people who buy multiples just to keep for themselves* cause it's such a great value for that sculpt. *Although I did send one to the forums favourite Beagle.
  11. OMG! OMG! OMG! No. I haven't acquired this mini... yet. But I will as soon as Reaper puts it up on the online store during(or just after) Reapercon.

    It's actually the handling fees they charge for collecting the customs fees that are the killer.

    Oh carp. I really need to pay more attention to who is being used for deliveries. I was thinking Mantic was using Royal Mail. I didn't back this, but I did back Mantics Star Saga and Vanguard kickstarters. UPS or FedEx means price gouging for the use of their services. Carp.

    Not familiar with this company. They state this is their second crowdfunding campaign, but it's unclear if that was under a different creators name or if it was on a site other than kickstarter. If you can find that first project the comments section should be a good indicator. It does sound like they were burned by including shipping costs in the first project. This time shipping costs will be calculated and charged after the kickstarter ends, so that's a good sign. There's a lot of talented artists and sculptors in Spain, but I'm not very familiar with any of them except for Gamezone. The sculpts kind of remind me of their style. I wouldn't be surprised if they were using some of the same sculptors.

    I won't have access to view the livestream so I'm counting on the forumites here to provide updates on any new info.

    None of my locals have received a restock or the May releases. Not sure what's going on as the line has been a popular seller in just about every store here.

    Box arrived just as I'm leaving for work! Will open it tonight when I'm back.

    Tracking shows that delivery is expected tomorrow. I'm excited cause that would be a very fast shipping time considering that Kevin only shipped it out on Friday. Less than a week. Hope it arrives before I leave for work.
  24. Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search From the Mantic Newsletter: "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns. The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers." If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for. Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.
