Do you think the game would be Worth it at retail? I had to skip it for the kickstarter and missing all these exclusive is a bummer...

Eh... depends if you like zombie orcs. BGG has some reviews. Sometimes you'll see a Zombicide base game on sale, though I haven't seen them recently, with CMON instituting a MAP policy (Minimum Advertised Pricing).

 

If you can wait, Zombicide: Invader KS starts in a few weeks, so you can get your unnecessary KS exclusives.

I imagine the exclusives do little for the game, but, if your like me and mostly after miniatures to paint, then the exclusives are pretty awesome and a good value.

Well, the Zombicide games typically have "homage" miniatures to various celebrities and characters. Since CMON hasn't tapped space yet, we're looking at all sorts of potential ripoff --- er, homage -- miniatures, such as Star Wars, Star Trek. Spaceballs, etc. Worked then, will work again.

Not much into sci-fi, but was looking for mor mobs and NPC for my games of DnD, and to paint of course ! Those exclusives would have been nice.. The base game in comparison looks so bland

my first impression was an immediate "where are all the cool minis I expected"? and then realising they would be in wave 2. 

Also,  "the orcs are smaller than I had hoped."

Unfortunately they do not let you change your shipping address at all once shipping has begun, even for later waves. I have seen many complaints about this on various CMON projects. The only thing you can do it seems it try to arrange with the carrier (USPS or UPS). 

 

 

This seems to be true. I put a support ticket in to request address change, but have yet to hear back.

Canadians (including me) are receiving shipping notices and in some cases delivery the same day.

I got a shipping notice from Canada Post Wednesday, notice from Geekfunder Thursday and the game today. Everything looks good, with the typical high quality zombicide miniatures. The trebuchet is really nice, it'll get a lot of use in and out of this game. The runners and some walkers look too similar though, I think they'll need to be painted or there will be confusion on the table.

I'm not a big Stranger Things fan, so I'll probably be looking to sell off those characters.  

 

On the other hand, 'not Prince' and 'not Freddy Mercury' were fun, if I remember correctly.

Finally heard back:

 

Hello (Talae),
I apologize for the delay in responding. Unfortunately once the packing slips have generated, we cannot make any additional changes to your packing slips. We strongly recommend that you fill out the address forwarding paper work with USPS, and sign up for a free account with USPS and FedEx on the address listed in the pledge manager. You can opt in to receive delivery notifications through both carriers, and you should be able to reroute your packages online. 

 

Thank you,

CSR Cecilia

I've had to pay $5 to Fedex to get it delivered after 5pm so I can sign for it...and then the driver will call me and try to talk me out of it because it's inconvenient for him.

They wanted to charge me $6 to redirect a package to my new address (since CMON wouldn't let me change it), but it was free to have it sent to a pick up location - a Walgreens Drugstore of all places.

Well, the latest update is very cool - getting to see all the bits being sent out was very nice.  I think the only new thing they don't show off is the extra Fatty Burster sets.

 

Which I guess is my cue to start making room for more plastic.  My daughter can live out of the shed, right?

      only a small selection (namely four) of miniatures, but I like them and I also like the idea of using plywood bases instead of plastic.

      About
      The concept for Mother of Dragons was born a few years ago.
      I still recall seeing the beautiful illustration made by Stéphane Wootha Richard posted on his Facebook profile and I fell in love with her immediately – I knew immediately that I wanted to bring her to life in miniature form.
      Fortunately, Stéphane was also very excited about the idea of a collaboration.
      We were inspired and driven to start working on the project that we both felt so passionate about and now, with much pride we can finally share this project with you all.

      What you see here required 2 years of committed development, during which time, our team has created and implemented many variants until we made of it a full range, indeed in addition to the varied scale of the main subject , you will find unique versions such as the bust or the lovely "super deformed" miniature. In fact, this is the characteristic of all of our Kickstarter campaigns — we always enjoy experimenting with new products and offering you something you've never seen before.
      Every successful kickstarter campaign enable us to share our dreams with the most supportive community in the world.

      In Mother of Dragons you will find exciting new figures as well as numerous artefacts (artefacts? – I hear you say. Exactly)! Be ready for an ancient Dragon Jar, or a real dragon’s tooth. One thing is certain. They will not be the only exclusives to catch your attention.

      Now with your continued help and support; it’s time to bring this project to life!
      So why support this project?
      Well, first because you’re a hobbyist and a modeller and you can’t wait to lay your hands on a new figure.
      Second, because the Mother of Dragons will also appeal to your collector’s side; she will be the “queen” of your showcase, no matter the scale, you choose.
      Apart from the main subject of this campaign, as usual, we’re offering great deals, rewards, add-ons and freebies, indeed Kabuki Studio places great importance to Kickstarter and for this reason the benefits/conditions offered will never be seen again outside the campaign, not even in the pledge manager/late backer's option.

      Riccardo Agostini (Italy) – 1/50 scale
      Keigo Murakami (Japan) – 1/24 scale
      Arnau Lazaro Azcarate (Spain) – bust (1/8 scale)
      Keigo Murakami (Japan) – 1/8 scale (full figure)
      You qualify for the guide even you have required the painted versions. Please be sure to provide a valid email address.

      KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE!
       
       
      What is this, and how does it work I hear you say?
      Well it’s simple. At some point during the campaign we will show some super-secret stuff that isn’t quite ready yet. You, as Kickstarter backers will have the exclusive first chance to grab some of this cool stuff.

      Any funds gathered from this boost will be added to the total campaign fund and will also go towards unlocking goodies for the qualifying pledges
       
       
      It’s simple, we need your support in order to fund the project and unlock all the amazing items we’ve designed!
      To donate, select a pledge amount and reward on either the right-hand side of a project page or after clicking the “Back this project” button and selecting “Continue”. From here you’ll be taken to a page where you can continue as a guest, or login if you already have an account.
      If you would like to continue as a guest, just enter your email address and select “Continue as Guest”.
      Next, fill in your payment details and take a minute to review your pledge details. When you’re ready, just click the green “Pledge” button and the job is done! Easy, isn’t it?

      During the campaign, thanks to your help, we will unlock several new rewards so you may want to review your current pledge, well how do you do that? To change your pledge amount, visit the project page and click the “Manage your pledge" button that appears next to your pledge amount and then select "Change your pledge" on the following page.
      From here, you’ll be able to adjust your pledge amount or choose a new reward tier you'd like to pledge for and your pledge amount will update automatically.
      If you don't want to receive a reward, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your new pledge amount. Alternatively, you may change your pledge amount within the reward tier modal.

      Note: you are not adding to your existing pledge; the amount you enter will be the total amount collected if the project is successfully funded.
      Everything will be dispatched from Roma (Italy).
      You don’t have to be worried about customs tax because we’ll provide a special invoice for that purpose.
      All the pledges will be posted through DHL Express and the delivery time is brutally fast!
      18-24 hours for Europe
      2-3 days for rest of the world (customs clearance included)
      So even the delivery time is a “problem solved”.
      Average costs:
      up to 1kg to Europe 14.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to USA/Canada 19.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Asia 31.50 Euro
      up to 1kg to Australia/South America 38.50 Euro
      We removed “Poste Italiane” from the carriers choice because the price difference is almost zero and the reliability of that carrier is particularly low, that means you could save 3 or 4 euro from shipping cost, but have great delays in your delivery or pay more in custom taxes, or even have the parcel lost.
