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.

      We have a set of 28mm Science Fiction Dwarves in heavy armour that we want to bring to you, our backers.
    • By Knight of the Dinner Table
      Their last Kickstarter (Dwarves) was full of great, characterful sculpts and delivered very much on time. This here seems a worthy successor (look, Beagle, no Dwarves):
       
       
      Balalaika Maiden: The Gardariki Trade Caravans always include entertainers, poets and the like as well as the more pecuniary-inclined. When the day’s work is done, they string up a tune to entertain at the banquet table.
      Set 01 – Market Women: Although the actual Fair focuses on the trade of commodities and precious goods from near and far, supplies for daily life in the bustling town is provided by the peasants and small craftsmen from the city’s bailiwick. In many cases, it is the women who man the stalls and wander the market square proffering their goods.
      Set 02 – No time to chat!: As the market opens, there is always a jostle for the best spots. No time for a friendly chat then, although once the hunting grounds have been staked out, call and chatter fills the various market areas.
      Set 03 – Georg von Würstenberg, Master of the Butchers’ Guild: Formerly a mere butcher, Georg von Würstenberg made his way to the top of the prestigious Butchers’ Guild, his paunch equalling his influence and power. Some say that, along the way, various rivals ended up in his product, but not to his face! Wherever he goes, he is announced by his herald, Peter Pfefferbeis.
      Set 04 – Guardsmen of the Butchers’ Guild: The Guilds of Bruegelburg always vie for the prime spot in the City Council, and many are not above using nefarious means to advance their own position. Hence, prominent Guild members are escorted by armed guards, who also make up militias policing various areas of the town where the Town Guards cannot or will not go.
      Set 05 – Patricians: The richest and most powerful merchants of Bruegelburg are commonly called “Patricians”, and it is they who head the various factions in the City Council. As the Fair opens, they can be seen ambulating across the Grand Hall, sampling wares and making deals.
      Set 06 – Country Nobles: The City of Bruegelburg is surrounded by various small villages and fiefs, some loyal to regional potentates, some allied with the city. The heads of these fiefs invariably visit the city for the great Fair to see and be seen.
      Set 07 – Paupers of Bruegelburg: At the bottom of the social ladder, a teeming mass of paupers and beggars, pickpockets and thugs makes a living in the meaner parts of town. As the market opens, they venture forth to profit from charity and carelessness, respectively. 
      Set 08 – A Word in Jest: Entertainment is a key aspect of the Market Day, and Jesters from near and far are happy to provide. Just don’t forget to guard your purse as you watch their antics on the stage! 
      Set 09 – A jesting Tjost: An increasingly popular pageant in recent years is the “Jesters’ Tjost”, a parody of the grand tournaments that hail back to the great days of knights long past, with the entertainers striving for the most amusing way to “unhorse” each other and poke fun at their betters. 
      Set 10 – Days of Childhood: Market Day is a welcome diversion from the often dull and dreary life of kids in Bruegelburg, and gaggles of children can be seen everywhere.

      Who Are we?
      Antediluvian Miniatures are new company producing an ever expanding range of 28mm miniatures for the war gamer, collector and role player. You can see our existing miniatures at www.antediluvianminiatures.com
      The Plan.
      We would like to add to our ever expanding range of unique and unusual figures by producing this range of Medieval Devils and Demons inspired by the freakish illustrated manuscripts of the medieval period! 
      These figures are sculpted by Andrew May ( Demons ), Ian Mountain ( Witch ), and Jo Brumby ( Terrence the Goat ). We think these will be great fun and an unusual addition for fantasy wargames, skirmish and role playing games. There are all 28mm scale, cast in metal- they will come with plastic bases supplied.

      If the campaign goes well we have some extra characters and a potential terrain feature we'll add in as stretch goals and freebies.

      More details of the pledges and locked figures are below.
      What do you get. 
      all the are figures metal cast and supplied with bases. Figures are 28mm scale.

      If we are able to hit the £1000 stretch goal for the campaign it will unlock the Young Shambler miniature.
      If unlocked this figure will be added FREE to all backers.
      This is a World Wide campaign with the postage as follows:
      United Kingdom 4GBP, Europe 5GBP and Rest of the World 6GBP.
      Campaign Rewards.
      There are 3 reward levels.

       SM 2: Shambler Attacking is a two part model and will need assembly. Use superglue to attach seperate arm.
      Stretch goal!
      We start the campaign with this initial stretch goal to aim for. If we get to the goal of £1000 the the Young Shambler will be unlocked and added FREE to all pledges. Additional Young Shambler models can be added for £2.
