When you say "thinly disguised", do you mean "finally available for individual purchase"?

 

If you need to pledge for the game in order to qualify to select add-on terrain elements, then it's not really available for individual purchase.

well ... later on through their webstore as far as I know, you can get that terrain without buying a core set.

I'm interested in the terrain but not the game :mellow:  Wish there was an add-on only option.

I thought that Grumpy was just being grumpy, but he's right. Those models are not worth that price. I could use the war rhino, but pre painted takes half the fun out.

I would have been very interested in the Bones terrain, and am not at all interested in a $150 game that allows you to add on the terrain.

The add-on terrain is all resin, not Bones. This may explain some of the higher cost of the individual terrain pieces.

The $150 game has cardboard tiles.  The resin terrain are all add-ons.  I'm wondering if I can find someone to back the game so I can piggyback a terrain order onto.  Or if I should back the game and let other piggy back on my order.  Considering.

Good point; I corrected my post to clarify.

 

Huzzah!

It is an interesting re-appearance of this piece and makes you go "hmm."  But it is also kind of an odd choice.  According to legend Kaladrax wasn't meant to be as big as it ended up (so a 10 dollar add-on became a 75 dollar retail item) and you can see this in the detail on the base: the skulls are slightly too big, the casket hidden at the back is too large, and surface scoring too big. 

 

But it is still a very nice piece of scenery and the big size makes it useful as an independent item.

 

Correct. China swapped Kaladrax & Nethrymal sizes. To be honest I'd rather have it  the way it was suppose to be.

 

As far as the Conan goes I'm just hoping maybe some of the terrain makes it into Bones 4. Thou I can see why it wouldn't.

For that price and pre-paints this is an easy skip. 

 

And I just noticed that the help @ reaper email address spammed me for this KS. ::(:  Option disabled.

I don't know that a single email about a kickstarter they're involved in counts as spamming...:huh:

 

Personally I'm looking forward to being about to snag some of that great terrain! (After the kickstarter since there's no terrain only option)

When seeing an email from the "help" Reaper address I expected some issues with an order, not a KS add. Also the tone was strange (not really selling it, not really marketing it, what?) 

 

Really turned me off the KS even if I was slightly interested. With the huge amount of selections out there this sour taste will probably turn me somewhere else even at retail.

I don't remember getting a message like that for the Secret Weapons terrain project -- but I could be forgetting.  This one seems like a half-hearted shout-out to me.  It makes me no more interested in the project than I already was.

 

Moreover, the recent addition of a bonus stretch goal would be a major turn-off if I was interested in the project.  It really sets off my caution radar when projects start to change their plans and throw in extra extras.  They said emphatically there would be no more miniatures and now they are changing it.

 

They also declared right up front that they would be putting a lot of their own money into this because they believe in the game.  Fair enough!  But now they are saying they just got some quotes and the game won't be a retail store item.  Is that meant to be enticing?  Because it isn't (to me).

The August 2016 Reaper newsletter started with the Tablescapes project..  

 

It's not uncommon for them to promote a KS in the newsletter.

      This will be Oz Clay Creations' first Kickstarter campaign release.  
      Our goal is to bring a complete range of scatter terrain pieces to the community that fulfills all the needs of the scenarios for the Frozen City and its expansions. 
      No more using toilet rolls for pillars or missing pieces when purchasing dungeon sets not specific to the game or even replacing needed pieces with close likenesses. All our pieces are hand sculpted in fine detail, cast in quality resin and then hand-painted in the theme suited to the frozen city. Despite our pieces' versatility, each piece has been designed to fit a specific goal, yet still have diverse uses.
      We are thrilled to finally release The Frost Collection to the community, with the hope that you will find a treasured place for our pieces among your finished collections. The aim of future campaigns like this will be to give us the opportunity to produce for the community quality scatter terrain pieces for those collections of RPG, skirmish and tabletop games so popular today, bringing our backers the sets they need that are ready out of the box to hit the tabletop running.
      Our project includes three special sets that will open up the opportunity for gamers to uniquely create a setting that matches the feel of the game so many of us love. Our pledge of The Deluxe Set targets the needs of a two-person game, whereas pledges of two full sets covers four players.  
       
       
      A pledge on our Core Set will fulfill the scatter terrain pieces needed for the base game. The two other sets round out what is needed for all the extra expansions that followed.

      About this project
      The Defense of the Citadel is a cooperative hero defense board game for 1 to 4 players. It is set in a high fantasy world where you as the hero need to defend the holy citadel against waves of enemy invasion.
       
      There are 2 ways to play and enjoy 'Defense of the Citadel', referred to as 'Missions' and 'Campaign' in the game. 
      'Missions' have predefined settings and last no more than an hour to play, which is perfect when you just want a quick short game. 'Missions' are also sequential, connected to each other through a story line. 

      'Campaign' on the other hand is the opposite with no particular predefined settings. The map tiles are randomized, events are randomized and your performance and decisions through the phases as well as crafted items and wounds will carry onto the next until you reach the final objective. 'Campaign' is meant for a long game, and you may need to record the status of the game to carry on the game on another day.
      After selecting the game mode, players first need to select their characters. Each character represents a race in the world of 'Defense of the Citadel'. Each one comes with a unique racial trait, abilities, strength and weaknesses.

      There are 3 primary attributes, strength, agility and magic. All actions, whether for crafting or combat, require an attribute dice roll of some sorts.
      The Jyujin is agile, able to succeed an agility roll with a 2+ dice roll You can choose a class your character is proficient in. The race determines the probability of success, whereas, classes define what you are able to do.
      each class offers a unique style of gameplay The player may choose to be a duel class, selecting 2 classes instead of 1. However, selecting 2 reduces the efficiency of that player's being able to perform the classes perks and abilities.
      Before the enemy waves arrive, you can make use of the time before the confrontation to balance the odds against you. This time can be used to craft useful items, lay traps or possibly even reshape the citadel!
      traps are one of the many things you can craft Some advanced crafting requires multiple conditions, with multiple attribute rolls and necessary class requirements. However, you do not need to do it alone! You can collaborate with other players to divide the requirement between each other. 
      The remote controlled 'rune bomb', the enemy is in for quite a blast. When all the preparation turn has been used up, the invasion begins!

      Hello all!

      I've started a Kickstarterpoject about our first cardgame, Ready Set Train - The workoutgame. A game which can be played with 2-99 players.
      It's a game in which you have to exercise in order to complete your secret mission. There are 31 unique training cards, with an exercise depicted on it.
      Through games like these, we want to make people healthier and happier. The game brings people closer while working on their health.
      The game has two modes, one for 2-5 players and one for 6-99 players. So you can play it with small groups and with very large groups.
      Interested? Then look at our Kickstartervideo below. Visit our Kickstarter here:

      If you have any questions, then feel free to ask!
       
      Have a very nice day!
