The Heavy Gear Blitz! Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter will fund the plastic injection mold needed to make new high-quality multi-part plastic miniatures for the tabletop wargame. Dream Pod 9 needs your support and pledges to make this project possible. Our initial goal is to raise $25,000 CAD to cover the manufacturing cost of the initial mold and to give Backers some nice plastic miniatures for the game. The next major stretch goal is $50K CAD for a second mold that will include Fire Support and Recon models. And at $75K CAD a third mold with two more models and Stoneheads Badlands Terrain.
For our Peace River fans we have a Peace River Army Commander Level for a pledge of $70 CAD that includes 1 Peace River Patch and starts with 8 plastic minis (4 Warrior and 4 Warrior IV) to make a starter army of General Purpose and Strike Squads. Planned Stretch Goals will increase the number of plastic minis to 19 (6x Warrior, 6x Warrior IV, 3x Crusader IV, 3x Skirmisher, and 1x Argos).
And for our NuCoal fans we have a NuCoal Army Commander Level for a pledge of $70 CAD that includes 1 NuCoal Patch and starts with 8 plastic minis (4 Chasseur and 4 Cuirassier) to make a starter army of General Purpose and Strike Squads.

Arcadia Quest: Riders features a brand-new campaign that tells the story of the Guilds attempting to push Malkhor back from the city. In this campaign, 3 alternative scenarios plug into the previously released Beyond the Grave and Pets expansions, bringing a fun mix of Mounts, Pets and Undead together. There's even a scenario that mixes Riders with the other 2 expansions!
Based on past experience, we will be charging shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends, using PayPal. This is so we can be fair to all our backers as shipping is rarely one size fits all, and also give you more stretch goodies and possibly a choice of carrier options.
We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a single Arcadia Quest: Riders pledge.
• USA: $10-$15 to most states. $35 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
•CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.
•LATIN AMERICA: $60 to most countries.
•ASIA: $10 to China and Hong Kong. $20-$25 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia).
•OCEANIA: $15-$30 to Australia. $20 to New Zealand.
•AFRICA: $75 to most countries.
•EUROPE: $15-$30 to most countries.
• $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.
• $35-$45 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.
• $60 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.
Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
*WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
So, pledge based on shipping hub (shipping paid after campaign), one copy of riders only available for June, more available in pledge manager
5 days only
no stretch goals (apparently), what you see is what you get, cost $65 + shipping
personally it looks expensive (especially as I don't like the way the mounts are done although I see why they've gone the way they have), but if you play a bunch of AQ it might be worth it..... maybe? If it doesn't work out I could see CMON not bothering with anything for retail when they reprint, on the other hand a discount from an online seller would look pretty good if you wanted to wait

EDIT: link to the live kickstarter:
The Hellboy board game will be a co-operative experience in which players face off against some of the comic’s most famous foes. Up to four people take control of iconic BRPD members, such as Hellboy, Abe Sapien and Roger the Homunculus, before exploring gothic locations and uncovering ancient artifacts.
Set to make its Kickstarter debut in April 2018, the Hellboy board game will feature stunning, pre-assembled plastic miniatures that accurately capture the look and feel of Mike Mignola’s world famous comic series.
“Hellboy has a great cast of characters, diverse locations and legendary monsters from the pages of folklore and myth,” said Ronnie Renton, Mantic CEO. “The comics provide a fantastic foundation on which to build an immersive, fun and fast-paced co-operative board game that will let players experience some of their favorite moments from the series.”

Kickstarter is live:
An upcoming kickstarter by Plast Craft games, an established maker of terrain for various genres.
This is their first foray into miniatures as well as an actual game.
Should note that English is not their first language, but they've been very responsive whenever I've sent a query about one of their buildings.
The link below is to a draft of the kickstarter not the kickstarter itself which will launch on May 2nd.
