I know I'll beat myself up later if I don't get the core set but I also can't get myself to commit to it. 

 

I'm not crazy about a lot of but there are a few things I really like.  It would also give the kids a pile of figures to paint. 

 

I ended up just picking the stuff we wanted from the core set, it was only about $37.  I then got chibi adventurers and Rocky the dragon for kids to paint.  It helps if I remind myself that I prefer regular PCs in metal, and that metal releases don't have stock shortages.  

 

Currently waffling on the expansions, namely the fan favorite and the stone age theme.  Time to sit down and look through the pledge manager again.

Just think of the unwanted mini's as test fodder:) That's what is happening to my unwanted core 3&4 mini's. I just consider them skill builders and *-bay fodder:poke:

To tide us over from the delayed update, here's a render of the Half-Orc Pirate from the Stygian Barge set, fresh from Jason Wiebe's Facebook page.5acaecd4851c3_halforcpirate.thumb.jpg.20e8d037e7b8b630c513d5f71ca0a1ce.jpg
 

I may need to get a second one - to paint up as a living version. (Player characters may be what happens to him....)

Yay! I has money. It sucks only getting paid a few times a year but at least when the cheques come in it's a decent amount. Time to decide how much I want to throw at this right now. Even have a little time this morning to stare at the pledge manager and prioritize what's left on my wish list.

My plan was to paint him up alive.   Most of the ghost passengers in that set aren't your typical bedsheet clad spirits and would work well as either.

According to my tracking sheet, I have $113 to go before I have one of everything on my must have list.

Hmmm, my tracking sheet consists of the PM with those Items I want checked. When I decide to put money against the list I uncheck enough so the money I have covers it, make my pledge, then recheck those things I still want . . . I think there may be some drift, though, in what I want when I go to recheck what's left of what I want . . .  :huh:

I have a tab on my miniatures tracking sheet just for Bones IV, listing out the things I want. Once it arrives I'll update it to show all the mins added to my collection... Which reminds me... Has anyone put a list together yet that I can copy?

At this point, I'm just trying to figure out how to explain to my current fiancee/future wife about the giant mountain of minis that'll be showing up in February... Ah well, she'll be stuck with me by then! :poke::lol:

1)You could act surprised when they show up..."Where did these all come from!?!? :lol:

 

2) Or, simply explain what a wise investor you are, and how it would have just ended up costing the pair of you so much more if you hadn't grabbed all of them them when you did. ::D:

 

3) Plan to be home and intercept the package before she sees it, store it somewhere safe, then introduce the minis one set at a time over the next year....:ph34r:

      About
                                        1 CHF = 0,88 EUR = 1,02 USD
      Through this project we want to expand our new series of collectibles miniatures inspired by The Divine Comedy, the Dante Alighieri's poem, the book that recounts about the mystical and fabulous journey that the italian poet Dante Alighieri accomplished through the three realms of the afterlife: INFERNO, PURGATORIO and PARADISO.  
      Last year we have completed an amazing campaign here on Kickstarter dedicated to the launch of the first figures of this new series. The welcome that the project received was exceptional and many backers asked us about the characters of the poem of Dante Alighieri that we didn't produce during the first wave of releases. Well, in this campaign you'll find the expansion: a second series of figures inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri is ready to be produced, they are just waiting your support.
      1. You'll get the NEW miniatures of Dante's Inferno series several months before their official launch: these figures are NOT going to be released soon!!  
      2. Our designs are unique, we take care carefully about every detail of our productions in order to offer you the most spectacular miniatures for your collection.  
      3. Geryon is KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, it means that this creature won't be available in the future! This Kickstarter is your only chanche to get it.  
      4. The other amazing figures will NOT have the same price when released: their price on Kickstarter is the cheaper price.  
      5. You're a fan of Aradia and your support will allow this company to continue to bring out fantastic models and dioramas - real pieces of art.  
      6. We have already managed successfully 2 Kickstarter campaigns in the past and intend to stand for it in the future.  
      7. We are equipped to produce high quality resin miniatures in large quantities and ship them in a reasonable time.  
      8. Returning Backers receive extra bonus.  
      9. You'll have the possibility to buy Add-Ons from previous series of Dante's Inferno at Kickstarter prices and get freebies.  
      10. You'll be part of a fantastic adventure to make this project reality for us all, keeping alive this unique miniatures series based on The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno.
      There are 2 kind of backers for this campaign, the old heroes who already descended to Inferno and are not afraid to return in that gloomy place and the new heroes who are descinding right now.  
      We have planned, for some add-ons, 2 different prices: one for "returning backers" and another one for "new backers".  
      - RETURNING BACKERS = Backers who already backed our first campaign of Dante's Inferno during 2017 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1201812263/aradia-miniatures-the-divine-comedy-dantes-inferno  
      - NEW BACKERS = Backers who are backing Dante's Inferno for the first time  
      ALL THE BACKERS OF THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BECOME AUTOMATICALLY "RETURNING BACKERS" IN THE NEXT ARADIA KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, BEING ABLE TO ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF "RETURNING BACKERS".
