    Kickstarter failures and moral/financial choices.

    Sadly if you run a KS and for what ever reason are going to have problems fulfilling it the best thing to do is stay quite, don't update, don't rock the boat most KS backers aren't like us and don't keep on top of their projects very well, just look at how many people forget to fill out pledge managers or even just provide a postal address when KS asks for one, (you even get people complaining about monthly/bi monthly updates as being too frequent, and being rabidly annoyed about weekly ones) so i'd guess a solid 80% of backers will never even think to bother you if you don't post an update (of the more engaged you probably start with a pretty even split of those who'll be patient and those that will start getting grumpy and a few of those will already have started looking for refunds) and of course refunds are the very last thing you can afford to start giving as you've spent the money (hopefully getting some way towards fulfilment in the process since i'm talking about projects that aren't deliberate scams). You may be able to trade your way out of trouble but it will be slow going, you may be able to sell out to somebody who'll finish the KS instead but both options need as calm a situation as possible. Letting all your backers know you're in major trouble doesn't help, your non KS business will get trashed, more people will call you a crook, more people will send death threats to you and your family, investors will be scared off etc You'll eventually come unstuck anyway but going silent will give you a year, maybe 18 months which if you're clever/lucky/have another income may be enough to let you deliver. You'll have burned 10% of your customers, you'll have ongoing problems but as long as what you delivered met expectations the 10% who were actively involved and trusted you will feel vindicated and probably support you more strongly it may not be the 'right' thing to do but it's the smart one, if however you put out an update saying we've got problems, your probably not getting your stuff but we're going to carry on trading anyway you'll get all of the problems above but from a load more backers, you might get really unlucky and find one of them is angry enough spend money on real lawyers and court which will kill your business anyway as you won't be able to defend the case (that costs money you don't have) now if there isn't any prospect of turning stuff around be open and honest to the extent legal obligations let you and shut the business (Hysterical games recent shut down seems a good example, most backers myself included were gutted but supportive)

    and to you too my doggie chum, hopefully yours arrives soon (and with everything in the box too)

    Confrontation: Classic

    It probably shouldn't have a delayed tag yet since the official delivery date is November 2019 and they haven't officially said it's going to be late (even though it's looking very likely to be a disaster, even more so than during the campaign)

    it's also that a lot of repeat projects aren't pulling in as many backers as previously (even where the spend is maintained), and backers are more experienced so have less need to ask questions which then start discussions (and the new KS reply feature is a nuisance in the comments as people use it and unless everybody involved in actually watching in real time those responses can get buried far enough back that the first poster never sees them so thinks nobody's talking to them so why bother commenting)

    Well my CMON haul arrived safely and complete today about 2 months faster than last time (and with a lot better coms)… I placed the order within a few hours of the BF sale going live so they clearly started from the right end of the order pile this time unlike last year that's me pretty much completed my Wrath of Kings collection (or at least anything I like to any degree) so I can play (and provide any opponents a selection of forces too), pretty much essential as i'm certain the game is dead even if CMON never makes the official announcement plus a few duplicates for conversion (more flying pig men that I don't need to worry about cutting up, why yes I think I will) A selection of The Others: Seven Sins boxes to be robbed for body horror minis (plus dice for the dice jar I hadn't realised were in there)…. the game didn't grab me but the minis are decent and most useful a huge number of plastic SF doors, gun turrets and other bits in the sedition wars terrain

    Reaper/Bones large fire elemental - Huge base??

    Or go the no hassle slightly more expensive route and get a second to cut up to add to the base as flames (which will be the same colour as the elemental, naturally)

    NoMAD A 28mm anthropomorphic post-apocalyptic miniature line

    I wonder if the airship is already in progress (or done) hence the need to include in for all backers as that's the thing that HAS to be paid for I suspect the 100 casts of each is the minimum order for their caster, so it this is a genuine KS (ie they have little or nothing beyond the designs) the will need to get the funds to get the stuff made

    No time frame given, just they've started and will be shipping in this order Shipments have been divided in the following tiers: 1) Bloodshed without add-ons 2) Contagion without add-ons 3) Cruelty without add-ons 4) Malice without add-ons 5) Blood Malice without add-ons 6) Alastoran Bundle without add-ons 7) All teams with add-ons without the Demogorgon 8) All other orders with the Demogorgon and once each is done they'll let us know Edit: although some add ons are still being printed so not clear how that will impact things
