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.

      It's 2 years in the making, and larger than Zelda: Link's Awakening, and still fits in your pocket!
       
      There's still a few Arduventure edition Arduboy pledges left... 
      (The game will work on the Standard edition, also. but the KS exclusive eition looks good... )

      Always have loved this style of mapping ever since Castle Ravenloft came out way back when.

      So, here's one I tripped over on Kickstarter:

      Basically, someone's doing miniatures... which didn't really grab me, until I saw the one for Edgar Allen Poe.  I'm from Baltimore, so I have to get that one.  And there's an HP Lovecraft, and some other cool stuff.  What do others think?
