I've just sat down and worked out how much I've spent on Bones and CAV Kickstarters . . .   :blink:

 

You are braver than I. :wacko:

 

My problem is that my purchasing habits for the Bones kickstarters have been influenced by the fact that I didn't get any of the big ones from Bones 1, so I've had to slowly acquire them at retail price ever since.

 

Which is why I will likely get Baba Yaga's hut.

 

Do we need it? No. Do we have a place to store it? No. Will it be used in a game? Probably not. Is it awesome? Yes. Will it cost a lot more to get it later if we need/want it? Oh yes.

 

IF answer to questions 4 or 5 = Yes, THEN addto KSPledge. :blink:

 

Huzzah!

That right there is why we have a tendency to pick up the big stuff that we want, even though we have no idea where we might store it. We /know/ retail will kick our butts if we don't. ^^;

... also, the big stuff has a tendency to be DRAGON! which .. um.. yes, I'm obsessed. Don't judge me. ;p

I think at this point I have more unpainted minis than I got in Bones I, so I may find myself cherry-picking for Boes IV. OTOH, Bones III had some truly amazing things that I didn't know I needed, so maybe I won't...

Sadly, I don't have to work that number out. It glares at me each time I open up my budget program. I've reached two paycheck territory in "debt" (to myself) that I'd really like to zero out before the next KS. Not going to happen, but I could always get a magical income at some point. That has happened before (either a bonus paycheck as an award, or gifts from family), but not regularly enough to count on it.

Seriously... I generally know what I spent, but only generally.

well ... looking at the cobra in the Reaper Con pictures ... they are doing "larger than life-size", too ...

 

That's not going to be a Reaper product.  There will be a KS for it though.

Ok so I'm confused....The cobra la thing is going to be in CONAN: RISE OF MONSTERS.  Ok...Its going to get its own kickstarter.  OK

​who is making cobra la?  Who is in charge of distribution and such.  Is it Reaper or a different company?  Or is Cobra La going to be available in the reaper KS as well

​+2 nerd points if you get the Cobra La reference...

Fixed that for you.

 

The model will be made by Reaper and shipped to the folks making Conan: Rise of Monsters aka CROM to be included in that game. CROM is a different game than Rise of Conan. I spoke with the makers of CROM at ReaperCon and the Reaper made minis will be available as add-ons for the CROM KS.

I did not hear anything at ReaperCon or from ReaperBryan about the CROM minis being a part of Bones IV. So I'd say for right now don't count on them being in Bones IV until an official ReaperPeep says. It will be possible to pledge at the $1 level on the CROM KS and get them as add-ons according to the folks running that KS.

 

Pulpasaurus Games is the company that will be running Conan: Rise of Monsters (CROM). They ran demos of the game, including some samples of the product prototypes at ReaperCon.

 

The snake and elephant deities are planned to be purchasable add-ons for that campaign, and it is currently my understanding that it would be possible to back the project and just receive those models. 

 

I have no data at this time about Reaper having any kind of permission to include these models in Bones IV, But that would be odd anyway, since Pulpasaurus' project will fund the molds and production of these product, so it would not be necessary to Reaper to raise funds for either the mold or production.

Were the multi-part soldiers for CROM as well, or are they Reaper's?

I tend to figure out what I can afford, and then stick to it.  Until the pledge manager come in.  Then I add as I can afford.

      Description
       
      Enter the Dark Ages of Greece, ruled by mighty Gods wielding advanced technology. Control asymmetric heroes and choose your path to victory, either by strategic control or adventure style monster hunting and quests.
      Build majestic multi-part monuments of Gods on the board and unlock their mighty powers that will help you win and survive the raids of monsters, who travel through land and rain havoc.
      In Lords of Hellas, you control an asymmetric hero, developed by increasing his 3 basic statistics and gathering artifacts. The main statistics are:
      Leadership that will help you to move your armies
      Strength that will empower you to successfully hunt for monsters
      Speed that will make your hero move faster
      Through the game you can choose from various actions and influence the game thanks to the mighty monuments of base Gods: Zeus, Athena, and Hermes. You need to strategically move your armies and hero as well as manage your actions in order to win. There are also random events, where players need to vote or take action together.
      Players can win in various ways: by controlling area, temples, or slaying monsters that are wandering through the map and interfere in various ways. Once any victory condition is met, the game ends (there is no point system).

      This is a pre-launch thread, but should be launching on Kickstarter in April.
       
       
      Darkholds is a dungeon crawler boardgame - think Space Hulk crossed with Zombicide - containing lots of undead (including Wihtgar, Wihtboga, Wihtax, Gasts, Dreaguth and Tomb Spider) and six heroes, all in plastic. It's heroes versus the game.
      The heroes are Carrowek, Penda, Nerys, Gnith and Sáthach, plus a special KS only miniature that you can ONLY get if you purchase the boardgame, Morag of Mann. You can't get her separately and she will only be available during the Kickstarter. The retail version won't include her.
       

      I don't know why it keeps merging into a single post.  But hopefully it stays.

      Conan: Rise of Monsters Update
      For the last year, Conan: Rise of Monsters has undergone thorough playtesting and development. The team has reworked and improved miniatures, added and adjusted rules, and – most excitingly – worked with Reaper to develop gorgeous new terrain pieces that all make Conan’s heroic battles come alive!

      At ReaperCon 2016, numerous fans had an opportunity to try out the game, and soon it will be your turn.


      In the coming weeks, we will be releasing a Quick-Start version of the rules that you can use to play CROM right away. We’ll invite your feedback and questions to help us make the game the best it can be.

      Then, in February, Conan: Rise of Monsters will launch its new Kickstarter campaign, complete with updated miniatures and rules, and of course the new terrain pieces. We’re preparing a long list of add-ons and stretch goals to make this an exciting and rewarding campaign!
