Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

Recommended Posts

Finally got my shipping despatch! Usually about ten days out from the UK, so hopefully I'll have some goodies for next weekend...

Still waiting on a response or follow up from the "ooops, your rewards are sort of messed up" general message.  I'm jealous of those who've gotten their stuff or at least a shipping notice.  trying to be patient, but it's hard with the communications being what they are.  apparently, he's not getting pms from KS.  sooooo, yeah.....

 

it'd be worse today if I wasn't still in a loop from the pathfinder 2.0 announcement.

I wasn't a backer during the kickstarter but I did order a dozen minis through the pledge manager.

Those arrived today.

Oh Darsc Zacal, you're doing it all wrong! The "reason" Hasslefree put sweets in the parcel is that you have something nice to gobble up while prepping your miniatures for painting.

 

That, and the fact that they've got kids of their own :).

Got mine at last, pretty good considering the rotten weather this week. Artemis threw in a free Shamanic Boudi, which is generous beyond belief:

All beatifully detailed and clean castings, as per usual.

I guess I'm in the last batch of shipments as I still haven't gotten a shipping notice... I'm not typically one to complain, but it kinda sucks to go pretty much all in to a kickstarter and then see late backers getting their orders long before you even get word that yours is on the way. I'm not like, ragingly upset or anything and I know they had a lot of setbacks out of their control and I've backed a lot of kickstarters so I know that sort of thing is par for the course but...eh, I'm kinda bummed.

I haven't received anything either.  Backerkit status shows the package was marked as shipped on 2/12, which put me right at the upper range of how long things have historically taken to reach me in Texas.  Since there State of the Union update says they are all caught up, I figured I'd wait at least through the weekend before I reach out.

Keep in mind that backerkit marked it shipped when he printed the label and added it to his pile.  he's said the pile had hundreds in it a time..

That said, in the State of the HF Union posted on FB yesterday, he said that :

as of this coming week will have finally finished with our big Kickstarter and the Pledge Manager was a successful part of that. It's still going, it'll close this coming week,

So, one can hope that yours is actually in the post or close to it, by now..

If it doesn't arrive within 3 weeks of being shipped, let them know though. That's when they can contact the postal service or go into replacement mode.

My backer kit doesn’t even say shipped. Soooooo my label hasn’t even been printed? I’ll wait through the week to see if I get any kind of notice. I think there’s supposed to be a KS update today, maybe? 

I don’t know. I think I wouldn’t be bothered had it not been for the email they sent asking if you wanted to make another purchase to combine with KS shipping. Don’t get me wrong, I think that’s a great service to offer people who’d already made orders, but the fact that you had to reply to that email or else your stuff wouldn’t ship really rubbed me the wrong way. I responded to that email within 10 minutes of receiving it. I shouldn’t have had to respond at all. It should’ve been a 48 hour notice that if you wanted it combined you should get your orders in and put it in the order notes within that time frame. But making the response to that email required and then never hearing back and still not getting a shipping notice made me feel like if I would’ve spent more money in the shop, I would’ve gotten my pledge by now. Maybe that’s unfounded, but my brain definitely responded with “How about you just send me the stuff I already paid you for instead of trying to get me to give you even more money?”

 

I’m really not trying to be salty about it, I don’t think I’ve ever complained about a Kickstarter before, and this isn’t the first time I’ve had one deliver very, very late, but I just feel very meh about how they’ve gone about things.

Nothing wrong with sending them email or contacting on the book of faces.. especially as he's saying that as of this week, everything should be wrapped up!

Well the update went out and while it answers everything except for my situation where my backerkit doesn’t say shipped at all, I’m still going to give it the rest of the week before I decide there’s truly a problem with my pledge. Like I said, I’m really not trying to be salty about it, I know they’re going to deliver my pledge, I just would’ve preferred if they’d communicated a bit differently than they have.

I'm really not happy with the update.  Since my backerkit ship date was 1/7, I'm reading that I should have everything.  I have nothing.  Not even a shipping notice.  I've sent another KS PM and another email.  I really hope he responds, but given the track record so far, I'll be pleasantly surprised if that happens.

 

My shipping date is still 1/7 in backerkit.

 

My frustration with the lack of fulfillment and lack of communications is making me angry at the entire situation.

I never received a shipping notice, but I figured it would be shipped within a few days of the "would you like to buy more" email. Since that was a month and a half ago I emailed today to check that nothing was lost in shipping. When I get a response I can let you all know. It never really occurred to me that it might not have been sent

      About
      Many years ago, I accidentally started a story about a man who accidentally started a war, and that was a wild ride to the end, or at least, to what I thought was the end. Until I accidentally started a short story sequel that became a novel that made it clear that if we're going to start a war, we should at least see it through to the conclusion of its opening stages.
      Which is where this book comes in.
      Some Things Transcend is the second book in the Princes' Game series, which picks up directly where Book 1, Even the Wingless, leaves off. This is a six-book series, and only Book 1 has a paperback or audio edition. It's time to change that.
      But wait! You say. I'm one of your fans, but I don't know this series. Why should I contribute to this? And lo, I say to you: the Princes' Game series interweaves with most of the other "modern" Peltedverse novels. Don't believe me? Have a look at this sketch of a timeline, where the stories of Reese and Hirianthial are in green, and the events of Princes' Game in red:
      Even if epic war stories with violence, "adult situations," headgames, crazy redemption arcs, alcohol and drugs, revolts and revolutions, more crazy redemption arcs, and moral, ethical, and philosophical discussions are not your cup of tea, the events of the PG series will inform future series in the Peltedverse, which I am already at work on!
      But wait AGAIN! You say. What if I've never read any of your work at all! And then I would say to you, "You can start with the free novel Earthrise" if you want a space opera romp in a universe populated with friendly aliens, fuzzy critters, space elves, and humans all working together, or you can start with the novel Mindtouch if you want a gentle "forever friendship" story of college students coming of age, or you can leap right into the R-rated, HBO-compatible Princes' Game series with Even the Wingless. Because epic war stories with violence, "adult situations," headgames, crazy redemption arcs, alcohol and drugs, revolts and revolutions, more crazy redemption arcs, and moral, ethical, and philosophical discussions!
      But wait a THIRD time! I'm not into HBO-compatible anything! Or I don't like difficult stories without preparation! Don't worry, I've got you covered. I have a set of summaries of the entire series so you can read "ahead" and know what to prepare yourself for. (It's full of spoilers, but that's the point!) Go pick it up! Or don't, if you hate spoilers and prefer surprises!
      Stretch Goals
      So, some stretch goals! Just in case, even though this is only a week!  
      $750 - Are you tired of bookmarks yet? I hope you're not tired of bookmarks yet! At $750, everyone who gets a physical reward will receive one! You need more bookmarks!   $1000 - I will write a short story about Vasiht'h telling Sehvi about his experiences during the events of Dreamhealers 5, "Family"! You know you want more Vasiht'h and Sehvi time. Everyone will receive an e-copy! $1500 - Wait, another short? Yes, absolutely! This one will be a vignette, with Jahir's POV of acquiring the jackal chest and amulet rampant and communicating with 'the ambassador' during the events of Wingless. Everyone will receive an e-copy! Over $1500 - I will wiggle a lot! And then tuck that money away to pay for the audiobook, which will probably cost about $3000. No, I am not expecting you all to hit $3000 in a week. I love y'all but please, buy groceries and stuff. <3 But Jaguar! You say. Why are your stretch goals so modest! Why don't you do Chatcaava plushes! We would totally be on board with Chatcaava plushes! 
      Because, dear backers, I don't want to fall down on this job for you, and that means humble goals. *bows* I admit Chatcaava plushes would be adorbs though. 
      But Jaguar, AGAIN! What if we want more vignettes or shorts!? 
      I'm not opposed to this idea. Tell me what you're interested in seeing. >.>
      Oh, and before I forget, the original for the Collector Level:
      Risks and challenges
      As much as possible I've streamlined this one so it takes very little by way of work. I've gotten very good at packing and shipping things!
      I think the biggest risks are:
      1. I get hyper and start throwing in prizes and things that I shouldn't because I like running myself to ragged shreds doing stuff;
      2. I get too perfectionist about the things and fuss them to death over millimeter differences in whitespace only I am going to care about.
      I think I'll be able to handle #2 since I've done OVER NINE THOUSAND of these Kickstarters. It's #1 you all are going to have to help me with. Sit on me if I start gibbering about something that sounds impossible, please?

       Manufacturing of the miniatures will be done here in the UK. The resin casting will be done at the Dark-Art-Studios HQ headed up by Byron Townshend the original caster from the first project. We have a solid team here in the UK, so pledge with confidence!  
      Please note the miniatures will be supplied unpainted and some will be supplied in kit form. all figurines & scenery featured in the project will be cast in a high quality resin, grey in colour with a slight flex to it similar to the forge world formula.

      A kickstarter for Crooked Dice's "Children of the Field" is set to start on 1st May;
       

       
      Quite a lot of detail on the company web-page: http://www.crooked-dice.co.uk/wp/
       
      I really like this companys' figures; crisp, unusual metals that don't break the bank. Clever rules too. 
       
      I had a nice chat with Karl at SALUTE, who hinted that he plans a post-apocalyptic kickstarter at the end of the year.
