Dragon Bait Indie Go Go

Recommended Posts

Too bad the three I like are all in different packs. Makes the will save a little too easy...

I like the concepts. The half-orc druid is inspired. I have faith in Kev Adams' sculpting.

 

But I ain't gonna IndieGoGo. Nuh-uh. I'll wait for retail on these puppies.

Great googley moogily!  It's my friends 1/2 Orc Druid complete with wild boar companion!!!  I want to support this just for that alone!

Is INdieGoGo somehow worse/inferior to kickstarter?

Ehhh...  It's not inherently worse, but it depends on which funding option they choose.  Unfortunately, this one went with flexible funding.  That means that even if the Kickstarter isn't successful, they keep your money.  If they'd gone with fixed funding, it would be basically like a Kickstarter, but with lower exposure.

Seriously?  Thank you for telling me this - I would never, ever back anything under those terms.  I mean that just sounds insane.

The project owners are still obliged to complete the project if they go for 'flexible' funding...I've backed two which have done so.

 

The only difference between IGG and KS is that you pay up front for IGG.

I like the look of this project, but with P&P and customs charges I'm only supporting UK/Euro projects these days

I had the same experience here. Orcs! only raised a little over half of it's funding, but still managed to have many happy customers. I know I was very satisfied by my Orc Hunting Pack: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/orcs/x/87644

 

One very big positive to indiegogo projects, is that fulfillment is usually much faster due to the smaller scope. This project seems already well underway, so minis should be ready pretty quickly.

 

I think I will end up backing. A dozen old school styled minis by Kev Adams for $65 sounds pretty good to me. Although, when I hear Dragonbait, I expect to see this guy:

These are some lovely pieces, but I share the problem of the pieces I like the most being spread across several packs.  I do wonder if we'll see any fun stretch goals past the first two mentioned.

Thanks for that Suden! :) I was the one behind Orcs! and it does me good hearing people being positive about it!

I love old school miniatures but I won't back flex funding projects on Indigogo.  I hope they get made so I can search them out at a retail level.

      This is by Bob Naismith, who has a long pedigree in figure design.
       
       I really like all of it, especially the hoverbikes. But the prices are steep. I might buy a couple of display pieces, wish I could afford an army.

      Skirmish game in the Kings of War setting.  There's a rules preview link in the kickstarter description.
       
      For new models there are two forces to choose from initially.  Big images in the Hidden Contents below.

      Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search
       
      From the Mantic Newsletter:
      "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.
       
      The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers."
       
      If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for.
      Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.

      I don't think I saw this one posted here before, but with 48 hours left, I thought I'd share this fun-looking little film project.

      So, as I mentioned, I was given a pristine old Grenadier set of Champions supervillains for Christmas.
       
      On the cover is a little splash logo: “FREE Starter Scenario Game Aid and Figure Accessories”
       
      The “Starter Scenario Game Aid” is just a folded piece of paper with a hex map on one side and some suggestions on the other.
       
      But the “Figure Accessories” are two actual, substantial molded pieces: a pair of rockets and what I think is a hover-scooter.
       
      You can see them in the middle row on the far right, between two figures, here:
      https://mobile.twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1078009215850029058
       
      These two pieces are not pictured on the box art, nor are they listed in the set description.
       
      They definitely go with the set. The box was sealed when I received it.
       
      They are not mentioned nor shown on the Lost Minis Wiki page of the set: 
      http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Champions_(Grenadier)#4002_Super_Villains_Box_Set
       
      Question: Should I document and upload pictures of these accessories to the wiki?
