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.

      About this project
      In this third Frills & Fauna installment, we delve into the darker side of the Stargrind universe. The Overlords Kickstarter looks at one of the species in the galaxy that subdue others.  Overlords
      Behind every thrall is a master. A major antagonist in Stargrind is the Overlords. A wholly alien species best described as floating brains. Physically, the overlords are quite weak, as they have evolved to interact with the physical realm using their minds. Powerful with both telepathy and telekinesis, the overlords can control everything (and almost everyone) around them with a simple thought.  
      These models will involve two sets of components: bodies and tentacles. Different sets of tentacles may become available though stretch-goals to mix and match with the bodies. The number of "slots" on each body for attaching appendages is referred to as "soft points."
      Being cast in resin means they are very easily manipulated into different poses by placing them into hot water.
        Classes of Overlords
      Drone
      The most commonly spotted Overlord has been labelled the drone. Drones are slightly armoured in comparison to other classes of overlord, lending to their common presence on the battlefield where they are most vulnerable.
      The drone has 6 soft points.
      Watcher
      Named for its assumed purpose of being a scout, as it lurks the battlefields and rarely engages. Its single eye beholds locations and movements of creatures, communicating back to the overlords' hivemind. Unlike the drone, its eye is exposed for greater vision, but more susceptible to damage.
      The watcher has 8 soft points.
      Reaper
      If the overlords can't initially control a species, the reapers emerge to consume brain matter and learn the secrets of its biology. Equipped to tackle specimens still living, the reapers entangle their foes with tentacles before feasting on the head.
      The Reaper has 8 soft points.
       Infiltrator
      The infiltrators carry large egg-like spores on their bodies, which they disperse in secluded areas that are rich with organic material. This appears to be their only purpose, as their flaccid husks are abandoned with their deposits, perhaps to catalyze the growth process.
      The watcher has no soft points.
      Matriarch
      Meet the Matriarch! It's uncertain whether the matriarch is a mature version of the infiltrator, or a seperate class altogether, but she also bears overlord spores. Perhaps since infiltrators expire upon plantation, this class of overlord is indeed an alternative path, growing larger and more dominant rather than concluding in sacrifice.   The matriarch has 12 soft points. Sporeling
      Once an invader (or better) transplants its cargo of spores (chlamydospore) onto biomass, the spores begin to absorb the biomatter and grow. Some take on traits of their "food." Once they complete germination, the spores detach from the husk and float around until they either form self awareness, link into the hivemind of a mature overlord or fall prey to something else. Adolescent
      As sporelings grow, their embryonic roots retract, wither and harden. Often mistaken for horns or teeth, these scabby protrusions are reborn as tentacles or other feeler/manipulator devices. Scale shots

      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
