Good gracious. They've priced themselves right out of the market. Even the Kickstarter pricing is skewed too high, at least at the lower levels.

 

Disappointing.

Looks like cherry-picking gets you around $5/100 points (higher price for lower volume, only a bit lower at the top point levels. But completionist is around $3/100 points. The former is basically retail price at most companies, while the latter is a significant discount if you actually want enough.

 

Break-even (assuming $5/100) is around 2300 points, assuming that you place no value at all on the pieces you would not order but for the completionist deal.

 

Waffling right now.

The pricing issue aside, its been like 5 days since they even commented much less updated. I dropped out. I only really wanted 2 of the figures and the extra 100 points for backing the Giant Kickstarter was tempting...

I kicked in my twelve bucks (well 15, they add 3 bucks for shipping), so now I just await the end of the KS so I can choose my mini's. That's how it works,right? they e-mail me, I tell em what I want and give them my address, correct? Such a newb as far as KS goes:(

In the past, yes, that's how Stonehaven has done it.

I've been sort of disappointed with their last couple of kickstarters.  I really do understand that everyone's got to make a living but there is really nothing special or thematic about this one and the giants had very limited appeal.  Wish they would go back to the race KS.  I have use for the matron goblin or the stableboy tiefling, not so much for yet another adventurer.

$15 is a little high for a horse, but it's very unique and I haven't seen one before. And, well, I have a need for one. 

 

The horse is actually pretty big. 40mm is about 1.5 inches tall and 64mm is 2.5 inches long. Reaper charges 12.99 for an unmounted unicorn, and with shipping that would work out to around $15. So I take it back, $15 is about standard for a tin horse. 

 

We've just gotten spoiled by plastic horses. :lol:

I have backed two previous Kickstarters with StoneHaven and love the quality of the miniatures I just hope they start unlocking more miniatures because so far I am not ready to pull the trigger on this kickstarter just yet.

They just had an update today on their KS, and they pretty much said no stretch goals as far as any new mini's. They pretty much said stretch goals will be digital, first one would be PDF's of character sheets for pathfinder and DnD 3.5??? Isn't that kind of lame, seeing as 5E is out? seemed odd to me.

Character sheets is not a bad stretch goal.... but... If no more minis then there is no real value in the completionist sets... not sure why you would go for that.... I am starting to wonder if there is a money issue... The super increased prices on the webstore, the increased prices on this set vs the last ones and the Giants not being shipped yet... Also the Giants set had free shipping in US... where as this one has shipping fees...

 

Stonehaven are great. They have always been super friendly. I moved 3 or 4 years ago and I had an issue where my kickstarter rewards were returned back to them. I contacted Petra and she shipped them to my new address and didn't want another payment to cover the shipment. Said it was my house warming present. That is a very great customer service... Above and Beyond. I wish them success, and they really do deserve it, but there are some warning signs on this one...

Right now, completionist is about a 40% discount from most of the "Point" pledge levels. If you like most of the stuff, it's probably a better choice.

      Interesting and focused KS for skulls and other bones (not Reaper Bones!) in resin. You get a fair amount for the price.

      About this project
      Hello again!  
      About a year and a half ago you all helped bring Fantasy RPG coasters to life.  Since then I've still been making sawdust, developing new products and taking the coasters on the road. While exhibiting at conventions (GenCon, GameHole Con, GaryCon) the question I had the most was "Do you have anything for Cthulhu?"  To which I had to reply "Cthulhu F'htaghn!" and also "Not yet."
      Well now I've got a few and if it pleases The Great Old Ones we'll make quite a few more!
      Why Kickstarter... again?
      Artwork is expensive and there's so much in the realm of Cthulhu RPGs that can be brought out with your help.   I also need a new table saw, the tentacle-laden heart of any workshop, which is where the initial goal will be going!
      I'll be partnering again with Dan Warren, who you may know from those awesome Steve Lichman campaigns.  Dan has worked on a ton of stuff and I'm delighted to be working with him again to bring these maddening coasters to your game table. 
      About the coasters
      All of the coasters I make are made from solid hardwood and are about 3.75" in diameter by a quarter inch thick.  They've got 1/16" felt on the bottom to provide a nice cushion and not scratch any of your beautiful tables!
      New Products & Add-ons
      Since the last campaign, I've made a couple new products that have been well received.  I'm offering them at a discount through this campaign.  They'll be Add-ons to any backers pledge.  When inputting your pledge amount add an extra amount to cover whatever the Add-On is that you'd like.  After the campaign you'll be able to manage your add-ons with Backerkit. 
      The dice boxes are 5.5" in diameter and work well for dice storage and rolling, and they fit perfectly behind a Keeper/GM screen. The lid is held in place with four magnets that defy the natural order with their strength.  It's quite tough to pry the lid off, but a simple twist will open them right up.  The suede flocking on the inside is red or green.
       Warning - The magnets in any of my products are very strong and can be dangerous, especially if swallowed.  They're not toys and shouldn't be given to children.  Please see the manufacturers guidelines.  I've not had any installed magnets come out of my products, but I thought I'd mention it. 
      Do you love some of the artwork enough to put a huge 13.5" diameter wall coaster on your wall? This is for you!

      About this project
      Pledge to fund The Assault Group's transfer of five 28mm Landsknecht Zombie miniatures, from White Knight's Miniature Imperium.
      With two large Kickstarters under our belt, and with a least two more to come to complete the transfer of White Knight's private range, we looked at what we still have left to release; Sea Elves, Dwarf Bear Knights on foot, the Land Griffons, all exciting stuff, but we have these great zombie minis, that didn't really fit in anywhere with anything else...
      ...grr... But, as these are excellent minis, and well-worth bringing fully to as large an audience as possible, we have decided to run them as a tiny (miniature even) Kickstarter all of their own.
      As the low Fund Goal indicates, we don't anticipate that this a large or difficult undertaking; the minis are made, the master mould prepared, and all we really need to do is make a new Production mould and cast the numbers required of this Kickstarter.
      ...ahhhh... Pledge Levels.
      Pledge £15, for one of each of the 5 different 28mm size white metal models. Pledge £45, for five of each of the 5 different 28mm size white metal models. ...roar...  
      Stretch Goals.
      £1000+ Add a Special Addition Freebie miniature, to all Pledges at £45+ £2000+ Add a Limited Edition Landsknecht Zombie all Pledges. (more details to follow)
      Mini Size.
      Scale shot. As you can see these are large 28mm, or 30mm model.
      ...mumble...

      Dear Friends, I wanted to invite you to join me for a new musical adventure, "Dawnstar: Eternity"! The music features cinematic and fantasy stylistics, and this album is the third in the Dawnstar series, which I have been conjuring inspired by astronomy and The Elder Scrolls during the past year. I hope that you may join me on this quest for musical exploration as this new album is inspired also by several art and science disciplines. I am currently running a Kickstarter campaign in hopes to make the production possible, and I hope that you may consider joining this new project and enjoy being a part of it. Thank you very much for supporting and inspiring me! Julia <3
