I only raised my pledge $8. Had a water leak AND a washing machine die since the KS ended. I'll just have to wait and order them when they hit the retail chain. After I've painted the 240+ I'm already getting, of course.

Increased my spend by 15% beyond my final pledge during KS. Most of that increase was my daughter picking up additional options with her allowance.

It was a real mental battle to hold the line and at times over the last 6 weeks my planning spreadsheet showed as much as a 60% increase. I had to impose a few simple rules
1) ask the question of each option, would I use it. If the answer was "no", then it is not a smart buy regardless of discount, and it got cut
2) I restricted my option choices so that they did not overlap with those of my daughter
I am relieved in a way that now my choices are locked in. Only thing left on my part is to receive delivery, oh, and a craptastic ammount of painting.. ::D:

The entire family has now been put on notice to paint the 1000+ minis coming in March. Between this, Demons and Devils and Bombshell, we are going to be busy. Must clear shelf space.

Since the KS closed right after my daughter started college and right before I went on vacation to Alaska, I was a little conservative with my pledge. As a long-time Reaper supporter, I have quite literally thousands of Reaper minis, plus paints. It is only that which spared me from being hit even harder by the release of the RPM. As is, I think my total in the RPM will at least double before I finalize it.

Not me. I figured pretty good when I made my initial pledge of $350. I only had to increase it $3. Of course when I made that initial pledge, I was feeling pretty poor.

i ended up adding a lot to my pledge, the deal was just too good to pass up, went from 4 vamp sets to 12, although I did trim some of the extras to only those I wanted to use for sure. I have over 3000 minis coming in March, it will be fun!

Wow! With that volume, you could field any of the units in a squad! A whole infantry of harpies and medusas. Hundreds of kobolds and goblins...

exactly! Armies, I'm building them - that and for trading to get more monsters and giving single figures. Plus, I'm thinking of donating one set of vamp to a local military base, there are games in the military who'd love to get these minis.

Even $250 on KS is STILL cheaper than five boardgames! :D

Dang, even with an army of painters it will be a while.

Thousands of minis is an unacceptible reason for not adding thousands more. Everything else will be accepted as valid.

I spent $238 on KS..Vampire, paint set 2 and some extras...
Then I got RPMed for $100 more...the rest of the paints and a bit more extras.
Had to hold off at 100, and finally resisted hitting the Vampire + button again, if Vampire was mostly monsters instead of characters (which I only need one of) I would have hit it 3+ times lol
Im loving it!
Question: when do we get our PDFs?

I tried not to spend too much more but with those last stretch goals there was not way I couldn't. I mean, I think I'm the only vampire person who didn't get the clockwork dragon.

Maybe my wife will forgive me by the time next March rolls around. She's not a gamer (her only flaw).
