I caved.  I'm in for the base pledge, MD crossover, the Deadeye Walkers (since I regret not getting them during BP), and maybe an expansion.

In for $1 and will decide in the pledge Manager - but shipping costs will influence that decision, I've been burned by CMON now twice with the shipping costs being substantially higher than their "estimates", so I I think backing for a buck and waiting for the pledge manager will be my strategy when it comes to CMON or similar Kickstarters. It of course affects stretch goals, but I think this is the logical effect of what CMON has been doing in the past (seeing $32 add-ons for Massive Darkness sold as preorders for $27 does also not really encourage me to back CMON campaigns during the KS with more than just a token pledge).

And yeah, it can be done better - look at the shipping costs for Mantic's Dungeon Terrain, for example.

I'm in for $1 too.  It's actually my first KS, if it even counts since I'm still up in the air.  

 

My problem is figuring out if I have the funds to buy this.  Hoping the PM stays open for awhile so I can save up a little bit.

 

Also might do what I did with Rising Sun and just get the KS through my FLGS.  That way I have a year(+) to save and I was a really late backer so I think I might get it faster if I go through my local game store.

I'm in for the core + MD crossover + ultimates. Artist boxes I can add if I have the spare cash when the PM hits or just wait for retail. Might also get the deadeye walkers, liked those the first time 'round.

 

Considering getting the expansions and selling the entire set of Stranger tributes, because they do nothing for me and I could probably pay for the expansions with them...

Yeah I will probably sell a significant chunk of my kse models, the huge number of weird homages has no real interest. I only really like the ones with little resemblance to their source material.

Hey guys.  Have any of you tried selling (or purchasing) any of the CMON kickstarters in the past?  With Bones 4 and stuff I'm not sure I am going to keep GH or Rising Sun.  

 

I backed Rising Sun and GH but do you guys think I might be able to double my money on them if I sell them right when I receive them?

 

Having a bit of a hard time financially and I really want to back Bones 4 so any information would be a huge help!

Looking over Evil Bay seems to show that you'd get some good return on your money.. also might depend if you want to break it down into individual exclusives or not

For ease I would probably just keep it all together.  But I guess if I can get more I might just break it up.

Last I read on Dakka, CMON projects aren't returning as much money as they used to. Skipped GH and RS myself.

Well, that makes sense.  As more and more people back the projects, the supply of pledges goes up, and thus the price people might pay goes down.

Dang!  Well hopefully I can make my money back plus a little bit but I guess we'll see.  Thanks for your help!

You would be best served listing it as a pre-order once you get information about shipping.  As soon as they post an update saying that the containers have arrived I would put it out there.  That is usually your best bet for getting a good return.  I would also do it as a fixed price, but accept offers.

      The busts from the base game of Kaosball. It is the latest in my 'Grab a Game and Paint Everything in the Box' projects.
      I have done this so far with 5 other board games and is a fun way to motivate myself to get more stuff painted.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 4 Kickstarter.
      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.   
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.

      About this project
      Overview
      Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love.   Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. 
      You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures.
      Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need.
      Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price.  We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists.  So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use.
      Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility.  We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. 
       
       
      The Process
      First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story.

      Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories.  But made sure they could easily fit your stories too.

      Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below.

      What you get for your support:
      Set #1 - Human Adventurers
      Concept design:
      Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples:
      Male Viking Warrior  
      Female Blademaster  
      Male Cleric  
      Male Ranger  
      Male Wizard  
      Female Archer

      About this project
      Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt  
      Newly Cast Bust  
       In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. 
      Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. 
       
      For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures.
       
       
      Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.
