    Black Friday Deals

    I got a bunch of stuff, they fulfilled it all but were very, very, very slow (and rubbish at communicating)…. to the point that some were putting in paypal claims so as long as they've got a lot in stock (some folk reported refunds on stuff that was only around in very limited numbers) and you don't mind it showing up next year i'd say go for it

    Claustrophobia 1643 kickstarter by Monolith

    It had some distinct pluses, fast delivery after backing, being a game that already existed and had positive feedback gameplay wise, a French language version built in (ok not important for the majority, but looking at the numbers France backed a lot more heavily in proportion than most boardgame projects) but a number of minuses too no stretch goals (remind people when they moan about fake stretch goals, and ask why companies don't offer everything planned to be in the box at the start), being a re-release of an existing game (some potential buyers will already have it), being precisely 2 player (it's not really solo-able either), too close to black Friday & Xmas, a lot of the cost is in (nice) cardboard not minis so while what you get are good the value isn't there for the folk who buy stuff mainly to (horde) use the minis for something else so they lost a bunch of the regular big box boardgame backers that way and clearly a well advertised KS with no stretch goals is too long at 10 days (less well advertised and they'd have had more discovering it later to balance the drop outs, but probably no better final results)

    Apparently Canada post has asked their international partners to stop shipping to Canada until the stike (& backlog clearing) is over, I've stuck up a separate post about it, but that may explain why some stuff is not reaching you even though it's set off

    Canada is closed (well postaly anyway)

    https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/canada-post-strike-1.4909208?cmp=FB_Post_News I guess the Canadians are probably aware of this, but just in case you're not into news Canada Post has asked all international partners to stop shipping stuff to them as there is too much of a backlog already due to the strike/work to rule So if you're waiting for a KS coming in from outside of Canada there's going to be delays until this is settled, and then delays until the backlog within Canada is cleared, and further delays until the backlog of stuff building up outside of Canada gets shipped over etc So please don't scream at the KS companies (or their shipping partners), there's nothing that can do to get your goodies to you faster

    Hi all Russ here! This is a super exciting Pupdate for me… In the previous pupdate, I explained the tooling and revision process where I was commenting on the minis as they got set up for production. Well, since then our manufacturing partners have tooled up and sent the first plastic prototypes through! I am super pleased and very happy to be able to share with you these first images of the minis in the material and quality that you will receive! I am sure you would agree that these look absolutely amazing! They capture all the character and detail I hoped we would see on the minis. The only significant change now is that these are in a neutral grey, the default for when miniatures are being checked for detail quality. The final versions will be in a different colour, but other than this, what you’re seeing is what you’re getting! Furthermore we have settled all of the packaging designs and the tooling on the boxes is beginning as well. I am waiting on a built box to share this, but I assure you, the box looks really great and evokes the upbeat atmosphere of the project really well. I hope to reveal this soon, and I am really pleased to be at this stage before Christmas- it puts us in a great place for delivery next year. Until next time, enjoy the pics and may your dice always roll high! Russ

    Check the delivery date on this one, June 2020 so they're giving themselves 19 months now this may just be a KS company being realistic (especially if stuff has to go off for approval), or it might be a lot earlier in development of the game than is implied (or they know approvals will be a real problem) and still subject to the normal KS slippage punting it to 2021

    Carnevale 2.0 kickstarter by TT Combat

    Aww, poor Beagle, I thought this was going to be an 'it's on it's way post' (unless you emailed them and said you wanted the fancy, delayed, retail box which is only due to arrive with them on Friday)

    I'd imagine the late pledge money isn't addressed as this is a complaint about the KS, so it's just not relevant In that context (much as it is relevant to those involved although they will have far stronger, already established legal remedies foe non delivery of a pre ordered item) and as for the KS money being used to cover running costs all KS projects should include a proportion of the target to pay their wages & other necessary expenses, they're part and parcel of getting whatever it is made, what would be more dubious would be paying staff in the company not involved with the project but doing something else, or paying all of the companies bills (eg rent/power) rather than an appropriate proportion and the letter isn't detailed enough to tell us that (I wouldn't be surprised if this had gone wrong at least to some extent

    Impact Miniatures Chibi Siblings of Conflict

    Alright. Now that the hype is in it's rightful place, IT'S THE FINAL 3 DAYS OF THE CAMPAIGN! and now that all the new characters have been revealed, it's time to see how far can we get this one. Our last character is Two-Handed Tina. If you think about how difficult is to even shoot ONE gun while flying, you'll see why she's very much appreciated in combat. Not all siblings are protagonists! but we do need our troops. Our FINAL stretch goals are MORE troopers to fill that battlefield with support roles in packs of four. Thanks for everything, looking forward to the closing of the campaign! at 60 hours to go

    Well that's a decent first step, hopefully you can 'cash out' and walk away with something at least

    Tomb Guardians miniatures - 11/6

    All the creator gets at the end of the KS is what Ladystorm said, however you can do a KS survey (or whatever they call it) to gather info like addresses, but it's reputedly very clunky and non user friendly both in what you can ask, and in the output that you get so maybe worth doing for a small project with 1 or 2 pledge levels, you're going to fulfil yourself by handwriting addresses in the kitchen, but pretty much useless if its a large project with lots of pledge levels/add ons being fulfilled by a warehouse by people who might want the info in a database they can query & print out from (that's why all these project creators pay backerkit, crowdox etc, I'm sure they'd love it if they didn't have to)

    Punga Miniatures- Canitaurs and Felitaurs

    funded stretch goal achieved stretch goal achived First of all, SNOWY is added to add-ons back. We received many questions like “Where is Snowy?”. Snowy was a real dog, the story about her you can read below: This story touched our hearts so hard so we decided to create another Canitaur for Snowy. Now Snowy is passed away. Many of us have lost our little friends, so her miniature will help to memorialize all our feelings. Sculpting of Snowy is now in progress and miniature soon will be shown. Second, we reached another Felitaur Stretch Goal — the Orange Tabby Fencer is unlocked and now is available to order as the add-on! And it means that soon (when we reach €30,000) all the Felitaurs will become an Emerald Set and could be ordered with a discount. Third, Shiba, Akita, Husky and Pug will be redesigned in 4-paws adapted version so the Red Set backers will get the full human-like "Mercs for Hirey" team! That last bit means there will be 2 'humanoid' sets available

    I wonder what excuse he'll come up with
