Does anyone else keep checking the KICKSTARTER website?

88 posts in this topic

Unfortunately, if you don't go through KS/Amazon, your pledge won't count toward the goals, and I haven't seen anywhere that Reaper will accept checks or PayPal for this.

 

I can't comment on the pre-aid cards, however as I've never used one.

Just another 4000 till the next update (at 235k). ::D:

 

On those prepaid mastercards.. do you have to pay any sort of extra fee? Can you get one with about $500, spend it, and then pretty much toss the card?

It depends on where you buy it from. Stay away from the ones at Walmart - they essentially make you setup a non-free checking account to use them. Got one for a gift one time, and it was a freaking major headache to finally use the money on the card. Read the terms and conditions carefully of any other of the "off the rack" ones you see at other stores.

 

The best sources for something like this are Credit Unions. Most of the time they're free or very cheap to set up for higher dollar amounts. If you're not a credit union member, typically if you know someone who is, they can set the account up for you. However, there may be a wait to get the card, so be careful on that front.

On their facebook post: Matthew Paul Clark We are working on some sort of solution to this problem... I'll get back with you.

 

I'll bug em again about it when there's less than 15 days left to pledge. Hate to bug em much right now about it. Besides, I should be moving soon so I might need to have the minis shipped to a different address anyways.

 

Edit: Besides, I'm sure they'd want to include anyone who frequently uses their online store. They have a paypal option for their store, so why not include it in this as well? It will probably be an option near the end of the kickstarter.. though I wish I could contribute to the total.

 

Credit cards just don't agree with me. I don't like the idea of all the red tape, commitments, interest, etc..

Kickstarter doesn't care if we send a link to paypal to our users, but you're right, it doesn't contribute to the overall goal.

 

We'll have something that will appeal to you at the end of the campaign.

 

But for obvious reasons, we would prefer that people who can pledge do. It helps us and everyone else who pledges.

If I can give you guys a bit of advice do not use Paypal for pre orders. If you receive/make X amount of money withing Y amount of time your Paypal account will be locked up.

 

Use Google Check out or something else. I do not want this to happen to reaper Miniatures.

No worries. PayPal wants to keep our business. They told me so.

Just I Stray on the side of caution... When it comes to pay pal at least.

 

As I get deeper and deeper into Kickstarter-ism (Yes it is almost a religion now)

I have to ask when will Reaper take my money?!

Kinda reading between the lines there, and the after campaign deal sounds good, but not as good as the KS campaign itself. I guess that's expected though.

Maybe I can convince a friend to let me use their debit card on Amazon. Then I could cancel the account after I get the last minis.

just get a prepaid visa from the grocery store with the amount you want to spend and once it's gone it's gone. Problem solved and no having to drag a friend into money issues.

Which card brand would be the most trustworthy from a grocery store?

I'd trust any of the major Visa/MC/AMex, but watch where you get it - you want to avoid ones with fees or contracts.

Contact your local bank branches and see if any of them sell American Express or Visa gift cards to non-members. You'll pay a premium upfront for them, but they are a universaly accepted at any retailer that accepts Amx or Visa. At bank I worked at we sold gift cards to members at a better fee than non-members, but we did sell them to anyone.

There are two types of cards: Pre-paid and Gift. Pre-paid are unofficial checking accounts with lots of hidden fees. The benefit is they can be reloaded and usually have a lower up front fee. Gift Cards OTOH have a one time up front fee and after that the money is on the card until it is gone. Some Gift Cards will start charging maintainence fees if the money isn't gone within a year or two, so just use the card up as soon as possible. Always get gift cards, not pre-paid cards if you're trying to live without debit/credit cards.

Get one of the Giftcards from those brands, they don't have fees that I'm aware of.

This sequel to the smash hit Zombicide: Black Plague, will bring players back into a world of deadly medieval fantasy, this time filled with infected orcs and goblins who will put survivors to the ultimate test. This green menace is not only stronger than their human counterparts, but they also tend to gather into massive hordes that ambush the survivors when they least expect it. Uncover the many surprises the Green Horde has in store for you!
        Stay tuned to CMON.com, Twitter, and the CMON and Guillotine Games Facebook pages for updates on this new menace that threatens anything and anyone that stands in its way. If Zombicide: Black Plague gave you nightmares, Zombicide: Green Horde will make them come true.

      No exact date yet, but they're planning to release in October, so very soon.
       
       
      I will be backing this one.

      About this project
      I've been making miniatures for about three years now, during that time I've made sculpts for various miniature companies as a freelancer sculptor. Now I've decide do to take the plunge and produce some of my own miniatures. That aspiration led me to Kickstarter.
       
      I've been busy sculpting the range of undead miniatures presented here over the last few months. They're predominantly 28mm sculpts, the Undead Heroes are larger at 32mm scale, to fit their powerful status. I consciously made them an eclectic bunch, including animals. My vision of the undead force is a terrifying mix of all forms of life, bent to the will of their masters. 
       
      During the course of this campaign, I'll continue to sculpt miniatures to add to the range. I have a Facebook Group - March of the Dead, where I'm working on suggestions offered by the groups members. The more popular ones will be joining the miniatures here.
       
      The objectives of this project are to firstly see the miniatures produced in white metal by Macrocosm Miniatures and in your possession In a timely manner. 
       
      If things go really well, then hopefully I can also get a shiny website made, so I can continue producing miniatures and offer them online.
       
      Anyway. I think that covers the background. Time to show you the miniatures on offer.....
       
      To select multiple rewards, pick one of your choices, then amend the total to include the grand total. I'll then collect the details of your order with the Pledge Manager.
