The campaign is over and i'm already thinking about adding the passage wall add-on in the PM

 

Honestly, I feel like the passage walls and corners are the pieces I'm most excited about. I never bought the original passage sets because I just wasn't feeling the design; and they're costly since each piece uses as much plastic as a corner. I have seen how the passages actually help make for solid elevated builds, so I had been tempted to get some. I just think these new pieces are going to be so versatile, whether in rooms or hallways.

I'm excited about dungeon elevation stuff. The lack of decent elevation tools is what's kept me from getting ks1 stuff. I am also getting more excited about the passages as time goes on, but the blocks and ramps and daises have me so keen. I am already in for one elevation mega set, it's so hard to convince myself not to get even more elevations.

I ended the campaign with a pledge in but still in considerable uncertainty about what I'll actually pick in the pledge manager. DF KS's have way too many moving parts.

Quite a bit more expensive than just getting one of the two passage add ons, but you could also take a look at Doomrollers.  The more I looked at that encounter the more I realized it was chock full of bread and butter.  A ton of passage walls, corners and regular 2x2 floors. I'm debating on it because honestly, I wasn't all that worked up about the boulder and ramp since that's a gimmick I'd use probably no more than once a campaign, but the value still seems to be there. For me, its just about deciding whether I want a bunch of bread and butter, or if I want less BnB and some elevation stuff.

I am thinking I will add Acid Bath for the passage walls and the elevation stuff.

This is exactly how I feel. I dropped from Level 4 to 3 to make room for Doomroller because I want that Bread & Butter. Maybe I can sell or trade away the Doomroller.  I don't dislike it, I just don't need it. I'll have to triple check this against multiple Passage Intersection packs, but I'll probably stay with this.  (Also, note there are 3 passage add-ons. They made a third one just for people who already have a ton of floors.)

So they are sending out preliminary pledge manager invites and I somehow got one.  Ended up going in for a level 5 unpainted pledge with the magnets.  I'm still trying to figure out a way to push it up to a DoD before it closes, but I have a feeling I'm going to settle for just shrine as an add on instead.

From update 32 at the bottom they are saying October 8th is when it will close.  So it'll be open for less than a month unfortunately.  

Thanks! Hopefully I can scratch together enough disposable funds for what I want to add.

We are sitting on the eve of the PM closing. I have very little funds to add anything and lots I want to add.

 

I pledged at Level 3, but am thinking of switching to Acid Pool+Jade Sysuul instead. Thoughts?

I’m personally sitting at level 5 plus jade shrine.  I think the shrine is a good choice.   It has some unique stuff and the special jade dwarvenite adds some flare. I guess it just depends what pieces you really want with your other choices.

 

If I wasn’t going dungeon lvl 5, my top picks were gorgon tiers, eldritch pools, and the menagerie.  Those were my personal favorites and they have some fairly unique pieces in each one.

 

This is my first DF purchase so I’m going as all in as I can.

I have quite a bit of DF already. I am torn between:

 

Level 1 ($82), Acid Pool ($129), Jade Sysuul ($394), Force Walls ($14), Puzzles ($23), Cages x2 ($30), Floor Trap Pack ($27) - total ($689)

 

-OR-

 

Level 1 ($82), Acid Pool ($129), Fanatics Trove ($99), Puzzles ($23), Cages x2 ($30), Epic Stairs ($20), Classic Dungeon LED Walls ($28), Classic Dungeon Magnetic Wall Set ($27), Elrid's Mystic Trove ($55), Wicked Dungeon Trove ($67), Jade  Inner Sanctum ($67), Floor Trap Pack ($30), Dungeon Bridge ($44) - total ($701)

 

 

I would love to add more passage walls to either (especially magnetic), but that taps out the budget. Any advice on what I have listed?

I might instead adjust slightly to this:

 

Level 1 ($82), Gauntlet ($92), Acid Pool ($129), Fanatics Trove ($99), Puzzles ($23), Cages x2 ($30), Epic Stairs ($20), Classic Dungeon LED Walls ($28), Elrid's Mystic Trove ($55), Wicked Dungeon Trove ($67), Jade Pillars ($20), Dungeon Bridge ($44) - total ($689)

 

If I can get confirmation that there will be a preorder time and I can preorder Jade Sysuul, then I think this is my order (and I cross my fingers I can save enough for the preorder window).

      About this project
       
       
      A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
      The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

      The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

      Attachments
      A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."

      Legendary Duck! YOU be the HERO! Stretch Goals
      There is a Stretch Goal unleashed for every 1k funding goal reached and each one is a game changer: a new Duck will appear! Either a new Duck Hero or Legendary Duck will be made available for you to choose as part of your pledge.
      1k Stretch Goal Unleashed: Oduck!  
      2k Stretch Goal Unleashed: The Quack Knight!  
       
       
      Glen Fidduck is almost a must-have for me ;)

      About this project
      Samples of painted resins supplied by Studio Giraldez. Resin masterclass models supplied unpainted Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Don rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you'll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or find brand new planets to explore. Whether you're making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you'll need each other.
      ADVENTURE: The Starfinder Adventure Pledge level is a great entry point for the start of your collection of Masterclass figures. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 6 Hero Slots and 4 Encounter Pack Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      CAMPAIGN: The Starfinder Campaign Pledge level is the perfect pledge for the miniature enthusiast. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 12 Hero Slots, 6 Encounter Pack Slots, 2 Fleet Pack Slots, and 4 Creature Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      Stretch Goals are items that unlock as the campaign reaches new heights. More options for heroes, encounter packs, creatures, and fleets will be revealed over time. There are three types of goals: Freebies, Optionals, and Social Media Stretch Goals.
      Freebies will be added to the Adventure Pledge and Campaign Pledge as soon as they unlock. Optionals will provide additional options to use on those Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet Slots. Social Media unlocks depend on the number of shares the following post receives on Paizo and Ninja Division’s Facebook pages.
      How the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Slot System Works
      To offer the most customizable pledge rewards possible we have developed the Kickstarter Slot System. There are 4 kinds of Slots: Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet. The Adventure and Campaign pledges come not only with specific models but several types of Slots to customize the pledge. Every item option has a Slot type and cost. Additional Slots beyond those in the Adventure and Campaign Pledge can be purchased for the cost listed in the Additional Slots section. As the campaign progresses and more stretch goals are unlocked the type of Slot and cost of each unlocked model will be listed in the appropriate section.
      Freebie Stretch goals add one free model or upgrade to the pledge. Additional models of that unlocked Freebie may be purchased as listed in the appropriate section.
      HEROES: Each Hero represents an individual pulled from the varied Starfinder races, character classes, and themes. These heroes double as playable characters and non-player characters, providing numerous options for players and gamemasters alike!
      ENCOUNTER PACK: Encounter Packs include a mix of creatures and hero-like characters that the heroes may encounter in their adventures. Each pack is designed to supply figures for a standard encounter. More ambitious adventurers may encounter larger groups so it never hurts to get multiples of each encounter pack!
