And just for general info, since the forum update it appears that the tags can now be changed without breaking the links to images so it should be okay to post images in the first post.

At least until proven otherwise.

I am just crossing my fingers that this and Bones 4 will not be live at the same time, or very close together.

During the KickstarterI can survive on the adrenaline alone. Beyond that, malnourishment/starvation is an issue.

Exactly my thoughts (although I have bought a few sets at retail later).

I am thinking Bones will start first, though no way to know. DF communicates poorly day to day or week to week, but I am sre they will tell us when they will start fulfilling the last KS.

Since DF is still in production I would expect Bones 3 to start to ship first, and if it does I would expect Bones 4 to start before DF KS5.  But with all the extra unexpected delays to Bones 3 I will wait till I have my minis, paint and videos in my hands before I will call Bones 4 hatched.

I managed to make my will-roll for every Dwarven Forge Kickstarter ... reasons being: it's not cheap (that in itself is not really a bonus to my will-roll), it's heavy (meaning shipping to Germany is expensive) and not-cheap plus high shipping means I have to pay a lot of import taxes and fees ...

Doesnt Dwarven Forge of a European distributor?

Problem with this European distributor is, they don't have nearly everything. For example, right now they just have 1 set of the medieval building stuff, which is prepainted and fairly expensive (85 £). And shipping to a country other than the UK is still pretty expensive.

Sadly, they seem to have some sort of exclusive deal, since I can't find Dwarven Forge anywhere in the usual German miniature online shops.

I am no expert on DF's business workings but as I understand it.

 

Long ago DF tried the retail way of business and in the end it did not work and moved DF toward going out of business. 

 

So DF moved toward selling off the web and while that worked in many ways it was not good for European customers but a certain customer asked if he could become a European web store distributor of DF.  This model worked for DF and DF Europe in the days of DF resin products.

 

When DF made the decision to try and make products out of a PVC like substance (Dwarvenite), KS was the best option to get it done.  Now if half of DF Europe's customers take part in the KS to get their stuff they do not buy it from DF Europe's web site.  So while KS is a great option it does have it's drawbacks.

fwiw, DF was (and I think still is) known for selling out of product in the states as well, sometimes pretty quickly. That's one of the advantage of KS. Small companies can offer the wide variety of products they *want* to offer, but couldn't otherwise because of cash flow. With KS, creators know exactly how much stuff to make and avoid inventory problems.

 

Kodiak, you're expert enough for me! The DF forums have too much chaff to read through for DF5 information. Keep up the concise work!

Them selling out of stuff in the US is something that might change how I order from the next one. The things that I think might sell out first might be good to purchase during Kickstarter. While the more generic stuff might be good to pick up later, especially for duplicates.

      Who Are we?
      Antediluvian Miniatures are new company producing an ever expanding range of 28mm miniatures for the war gamer, collector and role player. You can see our existing miniatures at www.antediluvianminiatures.com
      The Plan.
      We would like to add to our ever expanding range of unique and unusual figures by producing this range of Medieval Devils and Demons inspired by the freakish illustrated manuscripts of the medieval period! 
      These figures are sculpted by Andrew May ( Demons ), Ian Mountain ( Witch ), and Jo Brumby ( Terrence the Goat ). We think these will be great fun and an unusual addition for fantasy wargames, skirmish and role playing games. There are all 28mm scale, cast in metal- they will come with plastic bases supplied.

      If the campaign goes well we have some extra characters and a potential terrain feature we'll add in as stretch goals and freebies.

      More details of the pledges and locked figures are below.
      What do you get. 
      all the are figures metal cast and supplied with bases. Figures are 28mm scale.

      About this project
      Thank you! 
      We will come up with more information, infographics and some stretch goals tomorrow (really! You may be curious.)
      This modular game building system is the result of months of prototyping. Saga World Builder makes it easy for you to play the table-top games you love. 
      The system consists of a large number of double-sided modular map tiles and features hundreds of environmental objects, magic items, weapons, decorations, and equipment.
      All Saga tiles are 6x6 inch as well as 3x6 inch (metric: 15,24 x 15,24 cm as well as 7,62 x 15,24 cm).
      Saga World Builder is a highly modular game-building system for creating gaming maps and environments. 
      We’ve been enjoying role playing games for many years and have developed Saga World Builder with you in mind! From gamers for gamers. All design elements are hand-painted and highly modular. Due to the game’s unique and engaging illustration style, it’s super easy to add your own ideas and designs to Saga maps! 
      Wet- and dry-erase compatible and super durable!
      Saga map tiles are wet- and dry-erase compatible, super durable, laminated on both sides, and reinforced for extra weight and durability.
      Objects printed on adhesion film
      Thanks to the magic of adhesion and electrostatic, all elements stick to the map and can easily be placed, removed, and reused again and again and again. 
      All this is included!
      Beautiful hand-painted game-building system. Dungeon System with hundreds of modular dungeon tiles. Mine System with hundreds of modular mine tiles. Hundreds of weapons, magic items, and decorative objects. Pitfalls, traps, and tricky adventure elements. Environmental objects and props. Kickstarter bonus: Inventory and neutral tiles.  Features
      Saga World Builder is: 
      Completely modular.  Hand-painted illustrations that fit every style. Our objects are printed on adhesion film, which sticks to shining surfaces 
without glue and can be easily removed. 
  Works with any kind of marker: wet, dry, permanent, and nonpermanent.  Cleans up easily and quickly so you can draw on it and erase over and over again. Can cover any size or shape of table. Let’s you create an exciting chase scene. Doesn’t slide around on the table. Allows for a wide variety of terrain, dungeon, or miniatures.  And is Affordable  Rewards 
      (We have two sizes of tiles: 6”x6" and 3"x6. We did a small typo in the description of some rewards where we wrote "All tiles are 6”x6" and 3"x3” / But all tiles are 6”x6" and 3"x6”.)

      Expansion sets for the Blood and Plunder tabletop game.  Live on Kickstarter.
       
       
      About this project
      Blood is on the horizon! The iron grip of Iberian Domination is eclipsing the 17th century Caribbean as the world races to seize its spoils. Join the emerging Dutch Republic as it battles for its place among the established European powers or defy foreign incursion as a Darien King in this expansion to Blood and Plunder, No Peace Beyond the Line.
      No Peace Beyond the Line is the first major expansion for the Blood and Plunder miniatures game. This expansion will revolve around the No Peace Beyond the Line book that will feature:
      Optional rules for playing games at a greater scale or with more than two players A campaign system Special characters that players will be able to add to units New units and factions for the existing nationalities New nationalities including the Dutch and Native Caribbeans New ships: Piragua, Fluyt and  the Galleon!  Factions for expanded nationalities such as Danes, Swedes, Prussians, and Portuguese This Kickstarter allows us to raise the funding needed to expand our product line to this scale in a short period of time as opposed to having slow, continuous releases. Firelock Games is excited to have the opportunity to continue expanding the world and timeline of Blood and Plunder in order to create a more exciting and expansive line for its player base.
