Less than $5000 to next stretch goal!  

 

I've got to give Reaper credit, these Friday Facebook Share to unlock figures are really doing what they're supposed to!

Posted my prediction in the KS comments.  Figure I'll repeat it here.

 

Ron said the next expansion will be dark fantasy featuring something from Ad on.  I say Dreadmere.  Possibly getting the Dreadmere Townsfolk and Mercenaries in Bones.

Really? I don't see any blip in pledges. Been pretty steady. Might take a day or so to have any effect, I'll admit. But I don't think it has done a lot based on the 24 hour numbers, pledge/backer wise.

I think the Tree of woe, and the Tophet will be included as well. Since those are both dark fantasy.

I did, it's not as huge as the blip we got from Reaper sending the announcement to all the previous KS's, but prior to the bases, and the Dice Tower mention, and the FB share, we were on track to unlock on Saturday or Sunday. From what I've seen we almost double or tripled our pledges.

 

We had hours in the bare hundreds and a negative hour before Reaper sent out the FB thing, since then most hours have been in the $1,000's. Now I'll grant you that it doesn't feel like much of a blip, because the day before and since the beginning we have been tracking at least that. However, we are cooling down in the slow steady burn. That's why I love the graphs Bryan posted, showing always a slow steady increase. And even though it may seem slow, those days still add up over time. Additionally, it brings eyes, and people who star the project for more people who back at the end. So it's all good.

The link is buried somewhere in the fifteen thousand KS comments, and I don't get the Dice Tower Weekly KS round up. But Dice tower does that, and a blurb about the Bones KS was in there. 

 

Met Tom Vassel at Dice Tower con this year. Seems like a nice guy. The con was fun. It sucks that they limit the number of tickets sold, but at the same time, I think that's part of the reason why we had a good time at a full, but not over crowded con. 

 

I will mention, that Dice Tower is far more board game centered. Though I ended up playing Pathfinder almost the entire weekend, because I play board games when I don't have an opportunity to play RPG's. :lol:

Actually, I could swear that I recently saw a stock photo of a new bones cavalry unit that wasn't Sir Lorenth and wasn't from a kickstarter. Anybody have a link to that? I can't find it so now I feel kinda crazy.

 

Well someone did post a photo of Sir Danel, who was supposed to hit retail after Bones 2, but because of his backwards hands he never did.  I checked the store recently and there is only one Bones cavalry unit.  

 

Bones 3 had Kyra and Lavaranth and a dwarf wizard on a pony.  Both are awesome, but not exactly what I normally mean by "cavalry".  There's also a female dwarf fighter riding a bear from Bones 2, but that falls into the same category of "awesome, but not what I meant".

Right, but there's no blip just a steady burn. The day before and today look constant, as were the days before, at about 1k coming in an hour. When a new expansion shows, or another large must-have, then we will should see a blip. If things drop dramatically between now and the next Facebook-like push, then I'd agree we had a blip fill a dip. But right now I don't think it is obvious that it happened.

I thought you meant there would be a Dice Tower in the Kickstarter. Made me happy for a second. Now I see it is a website apparently. Sad!

      About this project
      In this third Frills & Fauna installment, we delve into the darker side of the Stargrind universe. The Overlords Kickstarter looks at one of the species in the galaxy that subdue others.  Overlords
      Behind every thrall is a master. A major antagonist in Stargrind is the Overlords. A wholly alien species best described as floating brains. Physically, the overlords are quite weak, as they have evolved to interact with the physical realm using their minds. Powerful with both telepathy and telekinesis, the overlords can control everything (and almost everyone) around them with a simple thought.  
      These models will involve two sets of components: bodies and tentacles. Different sets of tentacles may become available though stretch-goals to mix and match with the bodies. The number of "slots" on each body for attaching appendages is referred to as "soft points."
      Being cast in resin means they are very easily manipulated into different poses by placing them into hot water.
        Classes of Overlords
      Drone
      The most commonly spotted Overlord has been labelled the drone. Drones are slightly armoured in comparison to other classes of overlord, lending to their common presence on the battlefield where they are most vulnerable.
      The drone has 6 soft points.
      Watcher
      Named for its assumed purpose of being a scout, as it lurks the battlefields and rarely engages. Its single eye beholds locations and movements of creatures, communicating back to the overlords' hivemind. Unlike the drone, its eye is exposed for greater vision, but more susceptible to damage.
      The watcher has 8 soft points.
      Reaper
      If the overlords can't initially control a species, the reapers emerge to consume brain matter and learn the secrets of its biology. Equipped to tackle specimens still living, the reapers entangle their foes with tentacles before feasting on the head.
      The Reaper has 8 soft points.
       Infiltrator
      The infiltrators carry large egg-like spores on their bodies, which they disperse in secluded areas that are rich with organic material. This appears to be their only purpose, as their flaccid husks are abandoned with their deposits, perhaps to catalyze the growth process.
      The watcher has no soft points.
      Matriarch
      Meet the Matriarch! It's uncertain whether the matriarch is a mature version of the infiltrator, or a seperate class altogether, but she also bears overlord spores. Perhaps since infiltrators expire upon plantation, this class of overlord is indeed an alternative path, growing larger and more dominant rather than concluding in sacrifice.   The matriarch has 12 soft points. Sporeling
      Once an invader (or better) transplants its cargo of spores (chlamydospore) onto biomass, the spores begin to absorb the biomatter and grow. Some take on traits of their "food." Once they complete germination, the spores detach from the husk and float around until they either form self awareness, link into the hivemind of a mature overlord or fall prey to something else. Adolescent
      As sporelings grow, their embryonic roots retract, wither and harden. Often mistaken for horns or teeth, these scabby protrusions are reborn as tentacles or other feeler/manipulator devices. Scale shots

      About this project
      Overview
      Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love.   Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. 
      You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures.
      Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need.
      Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price.  We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists.  So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use.
      Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility.  We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. 
       
       
      The Process
      First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story.

      Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories.  But made sure they could easily fit your stories too.

      Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below.

      What you get for your support:
      Set #1 - Human Adventurers
      Concept design:
      Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples:
      Male Viking Warrior  
      Female Blademaster  
      Male Cleric  
      Male Ranger  
      Male Wizard  
      Female Archer

      About this project
      Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt  
      Newly Cast Bust  
       In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. 
      Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. 
       
      For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures.
       
       
      Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.
