    I really wish uk companies would stick with Royal Mail and Canada Post.

    Since it appears for all intents and purposes this kickstarter is dead, I'm locking down the thread. Should any major developments happen, PM me and I'll unlock it.

    Another interesting thing. Within the past hour or so Mythic Games in their latest kickstarter update thank backers who brought the issues with this kickstarter to light and mention that they themselves had shared concerns about the project with others in the hobby industry. Also within the last hour Antenociti Workshop has posted a warning about this kickstarter on Facebook. Dont recall seeing companies publicly warning off people from a kickstarter project before.

    Interesting. When kickstarter has suspended previous projects, they basically removed the project and the link would go to a simple statement saying the project had been suspended. With this project, kickstarter has allowed continued full visibility to the project and the comments section remains active.

    I have a bit of a different take. I don't know that this is a scam, though it certainly has many of the earmarks of one. But I also don't believe that naivety, incompetence, arrogance, and outright stupidity should be rewarded. Especially when it comes to my money. These project creators, especially early in the kickstarter, were given a lot of good advice about their project which they ignored or responded very negatively to.

    I'm going to need a bigger bowl of popcorn.

    Regarding Kicktraq. Some are wondering if it's reappearance is due to software automatically updating the totals and overriding the removal. I'm hoping it's Kicktraq rethinking removing it despite the project creators request... or possibly threat.

    Well this is something I've never seen before. Kicktraq has removed this project from their site and has posted the following statement there instead. "This project owner has asked us to no longer share their project data. Feel free to contact the project owner if you have any questions."

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    That whole release with the Xorn and Slaad, the one due last May, never made it to Western Canada. I'm not even clear on whether it was actually released or not.
  10. Edit: Now Live: This came across my newsfeed on Facebook and I thought the minis looked interesting.

    In addition to the copying of the rules text from CMON's game, it has now been pointed out that Foxtales kickstarter profile is a direct copy of Mythics Games kickstarter profile. For myself, if there was any doubt before, all this makes me believe this is not naivety on behalf of the project creators, but an attempt at willful deceit with no intention of fulfilment. Theres also reports that CMON will be sending a DMCA takedown notice to kickstarter.
  12. Have to admit I've found most of my vehicles at local toy stores, but some here might be interested if they're looking for something a bit more unique. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/978361943/32mm-big-vehicles-goliath-land-train/description

    Whoa! That mini looks like broccoli*! *No. NOT what the Reaper filters edit out. I mean the actual green veggies.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Just been looking at a couple of pics of the BIG sailing ship WizKids is planning on releasing in a prepainted version later this year. It's impressive and what I was hoping Reaper would come out with. Should look good with the Dreadmere pieces. I'm hoping it'll work well with the Adventurescape docks I recently received. No word yet on cost or if it will be released in a nonpainted version.

    Boxed Sets Restock?

    Wow! Reaper must have hundreds if not thousands of sku's. I didn't realize that someone would have to be counting inventory manually on a weekly basis.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    I paid $5 CAD back when I bought mine. Doubt that WIZKIDS has raised their prices that much. Sounds like there's some shenanigans going on somewhere in the distributor/retail chain.

    Life comes at you fast.

    That's horrible. Glad to hear that everyone is safe. I hope/wish/pray/have my fingers crossed/ that you haven't lost much.

    Happy Birthday Darsc Zacal

    Thanks for the Birthday Wishes everyone! Sorry for the late reply but I'm away on vacation right now.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Wow! That baby is tiny! Assuming the mini is 32-35mm, the baby can't be more than 25mm.

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    That was my thinking too.

    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.
  23. Darsc Zacal

    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.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    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.
