What a clever Idea. I really liked how the handles overlap. ::):

Just relaunched the Kickstarter today. Check it out. This is the last time though. We have had other version of these for awhile but these are to restock and get the new Clear ones. I say this so that everyone knows that this is not a high risk purchase. We will get them manufactured and though we cannot guarantee the date of delivery we expect we should be reasonably close based on previous production runs.

Do you have a realistic estimate for how much it might cost to ship 3 x-cases (X-case oddity level) to the US?

Ken with ActiveMindsGames is local to me and let me check out a couple of the current run of the solid color styles this last week. These things are pretty awesome. I really want to see these in an all clear style. I'm looking forward to using these on my bookshelf as displays for my Malifaux crews between games. When it's time to play, I can just grab the cases I want, snap them together and go. With the magnetic bases, I have no worries using them for transport. Having light come in from all angles will make these stand out for display units.

 

These things really need to be produced in clear. There's about a week left on the campaign now. Ken has upped the ante on getting these produced, and the first 150 backers that go in for $40 pledges will receive two free original opaque units added to their pledge. (There were about 80 openings last I checked.) I'll probably use my opaque units to carry paints. 39 Reaper/Vallejo/Scale75 dropper bottles fit nicely into the case.

That would be very tempting if Ken would answer shipping cost questions and actually had a $40 pledge level. It's troubling that he's only made one comment in this KS and seems to be ignoring the questions that his few backers have been asking. 

 

These cases would be useful to me, but every time I check the KS I see more unanswered questions and think, no way.

He could have spelled that out better, but the limit would be met either by pledging for 4 or more plain cases, or three cases with the magnetic inserts. He probably should have just said "Pledge for 4 or more cases..."

 

He does call out that the US shipping will be at least $1.50 per unit. A cost range here would have been nice to see, but I get why what appears to be a one-man shop wouldn't have accurate numbers for all shipping options.

      We just launched our Heavy Gear Blitz Utopia Armed Forces Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter at 7:02 pm EST today (January 17th, 2018). The Kickstarter campaigns initial goal is to raise $30,000 CAD (about 23K USD) needed to make the plastic injection mold for the new plastic miniatures and backer rewards. The campaign will run for 17 days ending on Saturday evening at 7:02 pm EST (February 3rd, 2018). We need everyone's support to make these new plastic miniatures for the Utopia faction a reality and if you can share news of the Kickstarter with friends and the online community it would be a great help.
       
      We have a great Captain Reward Level at $70 CAD (about $53.85 USD) that includes a Utopia Patch and 3 squads (Strike, Recce, and Support) with a total of 18 plastic miniatures. Stretch Goals, once unlocked, will increase the total to 36 plastic miniatures. Plus higher reward levels add the new MAR-DK drone (resin model) and the large Gilgamesh Command Tank (resin model); see below for artwork and details.

      About
      Welcome to the world of Nemesis! This new board game, designed by Adam Kwapiński, is the result of a collaboration between Awaken Realms (creators of This War of Mine: TBG, The Edge: Dawnfall and Lords of Hellas) and Rebel (creators of Drako, Dream Home and K2) .It's a 1-5 players semi-cooperative Sci-Fi horror where you and your friends try to survive while attempting to fulfill your secret objectives that may sometimes collide. It will also enable full co-op as well as solo play experience. 
      Nemesis offers one-of-a-kind gameplay, that you currently won't find anywhere else in the board game world. It has been in professional development for over three years, so it already plays very well, provides good balance and contains a multitude of interesting mechanics, as proven by the prototype reviews below. 

      If you like Sci-Fi survival settings and ships swarming with alien life forms, you will love it - and if that genre was never on your radar, this game is likely to change your mind! 
       
       *We will be lagging a little bit with the Stretch Goals presentation due to too high funding speed! 
       
       
       
       *Out of all reviews / movies two were paid: Cardboard Rhino (rules presentation / tutorial how to play that took a lot of time to make!) and Man vs Meeple (which is a preview showing the game in detail). All other videos were not paid.

      About
      A lone light is on over the table. The players are getting their drinks, snacks, and dice ready as the GM rifles through her notes once more. Last week's map has been rolled out. Michael grabs his phone to look at the picture he took and the end of the last session so you can all get your miniatures in the right spot. Except this time is different. This time you have a new miniature, one that actually represents your character's race. As your compatriots drag out their pre-colored, plastic humans and elves you smile. Pulling out the half-orc you've been using to represent your Netherstorm character, you  flick it across the room. In the same fluid motion, you set your new miniature down on the table. A four-armed, metal monster. He has been cast. You have painted him. And now, he is ready for blood. The room goes silent with awe.
      When we created Netherstorm, we wanted to really show people who we are and how we game. Part of that was coming up with our own, non-standard player races. It was a lot of fun creating, and later playing, characters that weren't the same old elf, dwarf, or half-whatever, however there was a downside. No minis! Maybe you're the GM who likes a good, meticulously drawn map.  Maybe you're a player who enjoys finding the perfect likeness of their character, painting it exactly so, and showing it off on the hexagonal battlefield. The bottom line is, miniatures are awesome. But when you have a unique race, miniatures that encapsulate your character are thin on the ground. Finally, we are making our own minis for use with Netherstorm, as well as other systems. We are starting with our four-armed warrior race, the Kentrona. These desert-born brutes boast many great traits, whether as an impressive PC, an NPC, or a monster for the second greatest role-playing game and other
       
      and from the comments by the creator:
       
      "I can tell you that prompting from others prompted us to commission art for a second miniature, a female Kentrona soldier. We should have it early next week.
      I will update as changes are made, and rest assured, we will be making some changes very soon. (Including removing all additional shipping charges.)
      In the meantime, Netherstorm is available on Drive-thru RPG."
