I was trying to figure out how to better store and light my craft nook yesterday. I have multiple hobbies, so room can be diffcult to come by.

I have been focusing on painting so I can probably move some stuff out of the way....

 

My husband saw the concept art and knew I would be getting a bunch :)

Still waiting on my first KS.  While I hear the quality is phenomenal, I want them all in hand before I consider backing something else.

Well you're sort of in luck as apparently they're sending out the free minis to everyone that qualified them for free while the rest of the minis are being produced.

 

We hope that you'll love those minis.

We hope this bonus shipment will help you wait for your final shipment.

Maybe this will make you get out your paintbrushes.

Maybe this will make you want to support us again for our new Kickstarter.

No matter what, we value your trust in us and your continuing support, and we are so happy to have you be part of the Raging Heroes adventures.

 

Yeah I saw that, and started cussing, because not having minis in hand was a great Will save.

 

Since I win't be able to goto ReaperCon this year, I might kick a little of the stupid money I would have spent on RCon to this.

Hmmm, this is a maybe for me, I'm mostly interested in fantasy, and I guess I've just never been that big on dark elves. I'm sure they'll be a couple of pieces I'd like to have though, from what I've heard around here this is high quality stuff. Actually, it's interesting that everyone in this thread seems really pumped, but the homologous thread on Dakkadakka is filled with quite cynical 'this will not end well'-posts. So what were the problems with the previous KS? Delays? A lot of people still waiting on all of their stuff? Crappy communication?

Delays for the sake of quality.

I'm still waiting on two minis.  I'd happily trade them out for things that are already available though.  That or finish my army via retail.

Remember they see /everything/ through GW eyes. If the scale is off from WHFB/40k, it's trash. If it's not usable for either game's armies, trash.

 

They also tend to be unforgiving of just about any flaw, real or perceived; and less polite about expressing it. So while I applaud RH for taking their time, reworking the masters until they are the best they can be...there are a lot of folks over there that just want everything as fast as possible. I understand a lot of their complaints, I just don't agree with most of them; so they tend to be a community I avoid though I have a buddy I've known for years on another forum who is a long time member (and posts here with painted stuff sporadically).

 

One guy mentioned KD:M which is long delayed and I have zero problems with that because the delays have resulted in better quality and more stuff as Adam keeps tossing more stuff in while certain folks are idle.

 

IMO people who complain about the 'estimated delivery' as if it's some kind of meaningful thing need to stay away from KS (but they also want the 'deal' without the balancing factor of unknown production times).

They did a bunch of pre-launch promotion on Dakka before the first KS, promising launch dates which slipped, and slipped, and slipped (If I remember right the eventual launch was about 6 months after it was promised)

 

Then during the first KS they said 80% of the work was done (big mistake as clearly even discounting stretch goals this was not remotely true)

 

The had the Raging Herald program which was intended to use volunteers to collate info, spread the word to potential backer & generally help out, and signed up at least a couple of the major posters in the thread, then proceeded to generally ignore them

 

Plus promising updates 'tomorrow' or 'next week' but then not coming out with them for months

 

and even worse than normal KS lateness (the moving minis around waves hit some folk badly as they'd picked specifically to get fullfilled sooner rather than later, and ended up with stuff that had been moved to wave 3 which is still not done)

 

so there's a lot of cynicism over there (for example I knew the company and expected delays, re-do's on the  models and lots of general artistic faffing around, but the amount amazed even me),

 

but even with the cynicism there's not so much actual dislike, we generally know that the minis will (eventually) arrive and look great when they do.

 

I'm certainly backing again for at least some of this but probably not as heavily as last time (I like less of the concepts, and have less spare cash) but if you are not relaxed about your KS then I think this is one to seer clear of as you will get frustrated.

I fully expect any and all KS projects to be heavily delayed. Expect the worse and you will never be disappointed!

Thanks for filling me in on some of the Raging Heroes KS1 history guys; it's good to hear different views. As Bathory said delays I'm well accustomed to, and have no problem with per se.

I'm also wondering what they'll list as the delivery date. THAT more than anything else will tell me how much BS they're trying to peddle. If they have it listed too close, you know their full of crap. NO ifs, ands, or buts. You can sit here and talk about why the first one was late, but now that they definitely know all of the perils of a KS, especially a popular one, if they throw some bogus delivery date into there, it ain't going to be done on time.

      About this project
      The Hobby Holder is a better way to paint miniatures, period.
      There are so many awesome miniature games on the market right now like Kingdom Death, Shadows of Brimstone and Descent to name a few as well as some great RPGs (anyone else excited about Starfinder?) and tabletop and wargames. Not to mention all those Bones miniatures from Reaper that will need more than a little bit of paint.

      Welcome to the Infinity RPG Kickstarter, help us fund an RPG based on the massive Infinity skirmish miniatures game!

      The Infinity universe was launched by Corvus Belli as a hugely-popular tabletop skirmish game in which sci-fi themed miniatures simulated futuristic battles across the alien battlefronts of Paradiso and the internecine conflicts of the Human Sphere. Before there was a skirmish game, though, there was an RPG: Infinity started life as a homemade RPG setting for the early roleplaying adventures of Corvus Belli founders Alberto, Carlos, Fernando, and Gutier. We've been playtesting the Infinity RPG with hundreds of people for the last 9 months, working hard to recapture the excitement of those first sessions and ensure that the feel of the Infinity universe will be captured in your own campaign!
      This Kickstarter has funded the production of a beautiful full colour, hardback 368 page core rulebook for the roleplaying game. It will be sent out in PDF in December and the printed books in February 2016. We are also going to fund Faction supplements, campaign, amazing geomorphic tiles, custom dice, accessories, upgrades to increase the content in certain books and much more.

      In the twisted jungles of Paradiso, humanity fights for its survival. The fierce, alien warriors of the Combined Army have poured through the Acheron Gate, descending upon the emerald jungles of the newest colonial world in a seemingly unstoppable torrent. The bestial Morat pound the Paradiso Front, where brave men and women fight ceaselessly to maintain a desperate defensive line which the sly Shasvastii penetrate with devastating ease. In the star-swept skies above, the collected might of humanity’s armadas maintain a life-or-death blockade to cut off an endless horde of alien reinforcements. And if any of humanity’s fractious forces should falter, then all may be lost…
      But beyond that terrifying holding action, the intrigues and adventures of the Human Sphere spin on. Space pirates cruise through the shattered planetoids of Human Edge. Scientist adventurers delve the oceans of Varuna. Merchant guilds scheme amidst the scourging sands of Bourak. From Yutang, the Emperor gazes forth from an uneasy throne. Titanic war machines stride across the icy plains of Svalarheima. Byzantine hypercorps struggle for dominance amidst the chrome towers of Neoterra.
      For the last ten years, players have tested their mettle upon the battlefields of the Human Sphere in Corvus Belli’s hugely-popular Infinity skirmish game. Now you can expand your adventures, diving deep into the amazing, never-before-seen depths of the Infinity universe with the ultimate science fiction roleplaying game.

      Play with the full dynamic 2d20 game system featuring:
      Cinematic action driven by the twin engines of Heat and Momentum The triple battlefields of Warfare, Infowar, and Psywar A multifaceted Zones system which brings the game world to life All New Artwork of the Infinity universe commissioned by Modiphius and Corvus Belli Find out more about the 2d20 System further down the page Explore the definitive guide to the Infinity universe with: A complete Chronology of the Human Sphere detailing centuries of bloodshed The culture, history, and intrigue of seven powerful factions Gazetteers for all twelve planets of the Human Sphere, including beautiful, full-color maps Leap into your character by: Forging your identity with an immersive Lifepath character creation system Fighting for your faction with the fractious, innovative Wilderness of Mirrors scenario design system Facing dozens of fearsome, ready-to-play adversaries who stand between you and your destiny! A 368 page book packed with everything you need to roleplay in the Human Sphere and beyond!
      Here are our popular Pledge Levels, we'll be adding more as they are unlocked. Note: There will be more Bostria Art Pledges for the Core and Supplements unlocked, we'll send an update before they are so you have a chance to grab one
