    Confrontation: Classic

    Similarly when Impact! Miniatures did their first Chibi KS they had characters based on the Dungeons and Dragons cartoon and the IP owner was satisfied with them not being painted up in the same colours as the cartoon

    Exo - Mankind Reborn : A miniatures boardgame by Plast Craft Games

    It's a very weird one, but I think it probably really is just that there's too much competion

    Arcadia Quest: Riders kickstarter by CMON (5 days only)

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/arcadia-quest-riders?ref=c54ccn Arcadia Quest: Riders features a brand-new campaign that tells the story of the Guilds attempting to push Malkhor back from the city. In this campaign, 3 alternative scenarios plug into the previously released Beyond the Grave and Pets expansions, bringing a fun mix of Mounts, Pets and Undead together. There's even a scenario that mixes Riders with the other 2 expansions! Based on past experience, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends, using PayPal. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options. We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a single Arcadia Quest: Riders pledge. • USA: $10-$15 to most states. $35 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. •CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities. •LATIN AMERICA: $60 to most countries. •ASIA: $10 to China and Hong Kong. $20-$25 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). •OCEANIA: $15-$30 to Australia. $20 to New Zealand. •AFRICA: $75 to most countries. •EUROPE: $15-$30 to most countries. • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia. • $35-$45 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland. • $60 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries. *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan. So, pledge based on shipping hub (shipping paid after campaign), one copy of riders only available for June, more available in pledge manager 5 days only no stretch goals (apparently), what you see is what you get, cost $65 + shipping personally it looks expensive (especially as I don't like the way the mounts are done although I see why they've gone the way they have), but if you play a bunch of AQ it might be worth it..... maybe? If it doesn't work out I could see CMON not bothering with anything for retail when they reprint, on the other hand a discount from an online seller would look pretty good if you wanted to wait

    Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

    Hellboy (and all non-human stuff works fine whatever), its just going to be the Nazis and presumably the BPRD agents that may be a bit big, although it's always going to be tricky to tell until you see how much shrinkage happens in the casting in PVC If you want Hellboy (£7) & Horned Hellboy (no doubt it would be the same) the 4 hellboy pack in resin (£20) begins to look worth having

    Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

    and that image is gone again as they seek further clarification, so things may yet change........ or not this is mantic after all

    Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

    Well an official answer for the scale question (and not what I expected) The miniatures in Hellboy: The Board Game are 35mm scale. Here's a line-up to show how they stack up against one of our 28mm scale Star Saga Marine. a bit disappointing (not so much the 35mm scale, but the 'human' Nazis seeming to be a bit oversized even for that) time for a bit of a value rethink based on new info

    Adrian Smith's HATE

    so unlike most CMON projects if you miss the deadline you run a real risk of not getting anything (other than an eventual refund -KS fees)

    Anyone in the US ever order hobby stuff from Russia?

    The only problem I've had with Russian companies is the time it can take for a package to get out of Russia. Maybe 1 in every 5 times I've ordered the item has set off briskly (as shown by tracking if I've paid for it) then taken a 3 or 4 week holiday before actually exiting the country. Whether it's the postal service, customs or just log-jams at the airport is unclear but I'd keep it in mind if you get jittery about stuff taking ages to arrive (as has been said above recasting is a big issue so if the seller has lots of 'new' stuff from a western company it's likely to be dodgy, and i'd prefer to pay via paypal or other 3rd party than handing over CC details directly)

    Super Chibi Round 4

    Final day 21 hours to go at time of posting, 5 minis with the basic pledge, and the new bust and wolf with orc rider unlocked as paid add ons so if you fancy some Chibi goodness from a genuinely small company that depends on your backing to make said goodies jump onboard without delay

    Confrontation: Classic

    They probably do have to (at least try) to do a big release to get anything like the costs they are implying they've got (i'm doubtful but a decent volume discount would certainly explain the price they can achieve)

    Super Chibi Round 4

    Update #9 Quick side views. Ok, just a very quick update here. It was asked in the comment section if we have any views of the miniatures from the sides. I was able to get a few shots of the sculpts but they are not renders, they are just quick views from the .stl files we have. Also, note that these are still subject to change depending on casting needs. Right now it appears Sakura and Nona do not need any parting out but that could change also Tenago's body is the only thing shown at this time. Tenago Nona Sakura 55 hours to go

    Godtear - Steamforged Games

    I think it's suffered from the problems with the Darksouls KS delays are part of KS, but I bet a load of 1st timers who were otherwise into Streamforged via guildball got stung and the unsuccessful pair of indiegogos for the switching existing guildball teams to plastic where the lack of any real company input annoyed a bunch of folk

    Confrontation: Classic

    Since most of the ex-Rackham sculptors are 'names' in the industry you'd probably be looking at at least $750-1000 per sculpt if they were having to pay for them, which at around 200 individual pieces would be a huge cost I'm still not convinced they've got enough money to pay for all the moulds they'll need, but at least it sounds like they're talking to the right factories about production (although there can end up being a big difference between and informal, can you do X for us, and a final signed contract where prices tend to go up and time frames slip a fair bit)

    Super Chibi Round 4

    Oh yes, bust and wolfy-wolf unlocked Update #7 Takata Bust and Grog Unlocked! WE DID IT! Yes, we did it! It was a little bumpy there for a moment but we hit $3700 and blew past it. So, you know what that means right? Yep, Takata Bust and Grog are now unlocked. YEAH! Ok, so how does this work? It's simple both Takata and Grog are set Add-ons of $12 each. So, if you want one just increase your pledge by $12 for the number you want. It's that easy. **Note: Takata bust has two head options. You will receive both in your pledge. Now time to be honest with you all. Takata and Grog were set to be our last Stretch goal. There was a number of reasons why we did this, the primary reason is because of the time frame we like to fulfill our Kickstarter. We like to have a turn around of 6 months. (We overshot that but a small factor in our last one) But, my partners asked that I add one more. So here is the deal I have been thinking about this and running some numbers. If we hit over $5200 we can add one more Stretch goal. It will be another Add-on and it will be another bust. Now again I'm going to be honest with you I have no concept art for this but if I see we are getting close then I will share with you what I have in mind. So thanks again for all the support and let's keep moving forward. Natakue
