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.

      28mm metal Renaissance-style skeleton army for war games based on art by Hans Holbein, Durer, and such like. It's a cool style. It's only got a week left and I wasn't able to find another thread for it. I'm not affiliated but thought it looked cool and backed it.

      About this project
       
       Trio is born from my videogames experience, is born by my idea to create a variegated set that include different types of subjects including animals, armours, textiles and skins of various types. The busts of this campaign are all handsculpted by Alberto Acquaviva and me and all are in resin cast. Through this busts i want to show you how the wisdom can be beautiful and delicate, how the courage can be aggressive in front of a trial and how the power can corrupt your face...and your soul. All this collection busts are composed just by one piece except Heero, the courage that is composed by three parts. The collection has been conceived to be easy to assemple and ready from the unboxing to be painted. Is a good trial for both beginners and veteran painters. You can play with colors, lighting effects or freehanding on open surfaces, on little details or animal mantles. So,I hope my project excites and involves you like it did to me. Thanks for reading. Below you'll find the description of all characters, their size and more details on this campaign.
      Regarding the shipping costs there are two price ranges.  
      First range: shipping up to 4 figures, 5€  
      Second range: 5+ figures,10€ However be informed that the more models you'll purchase, the bigger will be the discount applied, so your shipping will be anyway cheap.

      After the success of the first campaign for 16th century Knights I'm now expanding my 28mm Renaissance range with charging mounted Knights!
      These new Knights will have couched lances or be using hand weapons on galloping horses.
      Further I have reworked the figures from the first Knights campaign to make them easier to assemble, they now have sockets to attach the hands and heads. There are also some revised poses and new heads.
      Sets one-three painted so you can get a feel for how these figures can look. Please note these sets are being revised and pictures of the new ones will be added as the campaign continues. These figures are in the popular 28mm scale and will fit well with figures such as Perry miniatures, they can be used for many periods and settings in the 16th century but also for fantasy collections.
      Please note that the figures are unpainted and require assembly they are not toys for children. Also the figures shown still have minor refinements to be made before casting.
      My figures have been highly researched and are packed with details, I have tried to give many of them an explosive sense of movement. Every mounted knight figure comes with a choice of two heads and two plumes the horses are all separate from the riders and all nessesary weapons are included. This means you can customise your figures to create a very unique collection.
      if you back the campaign you will receive you figures at a 25% discount of normal website prices, which means that for the campaign a pack of two mounted Knights cost £15
      Also if the main campaign is a succes as a stretch goal the first pikemen figures will be released...these figures will be in full forward motion with levelled pikes. They can be used for either Landsknechts or Swiss pike.

      In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.
       
      Spirit Island is a cooperative, settler-destruction strategy game for 1 to 4 players designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players are different spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Work with your fellow spirits and the native islanders to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.
       

       
      This game was playtested at some of my Fourth of July parties, and though I haven't had a chance to play it yet myself, the game comes highly recommended.
       
      The interesting bit here is that you play neither the Invaders nor the Inhabitants of the island, but the spirits trying to alter the balance of power in defense of the Inhabitants themselves.
