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 Auld Grump

 

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'm going to wait until retail to GE the terrain pieces.

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.
