Ooooh, purdies and.. Whatever  the other guys are.  Badlands Commander is tempting, as I'd be able to add on some of the North and South armies too...

There first kickstarter was a deal dreams were made of but I don't think they made a dime on it.  This one has a bit more realistic costs.  I probably wouldn't bother (still have 2 of the first factions unbuilt)  but peace river is the faction I actually play.

 

The product from the last kickstarter was very late because they had a lot of details and learning to do, but the minis came out truly spectacular, as in I've only had to clean up one or two mold lines in 60 figures and I'm still not sure if they were intentional.  As they learned a lot i would also expect delivery time to be a lot shorter.  

 

Oh, and these Don t require you to pin them together to prevent them from exploding like a frag grenade when they hit the cement or tile floor ::D:

 

 

Overall, good company, great product so far, I will be backing for both fractions.

Heavy Gear Blitz Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter Final Week Update!

Dream Pod 9's Heavy Gear Blitz Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter is now into its final week, ending Saturday Evening May 26th, 2018. After reaching our initial funding goal of $25,000 CAD, early in the campaign, to make a first plastic injection mold and give Backers some nice plastic miniatures for the game. We've unlocked the first 4 stretch goals with over $36,000 CAD pledged. We have looked at whats reasonable to expect in the final week of the Kickstarter and updated our stretch goals and plans accordingly. The campaign page text, reward levels graphics, stretch goal graphic, some add-ons graphics, and pledge calculator excel sheet link have all been updated.

The next major goal is Stretch Goal 09 at $50K CAD pledged for a second plastic injection mold that will include core Fire Support and Recon models for Peace River and NuCoal. Dream Pod 9 is committed to reaching this goal and unlocking the second mold and making the Backer Reward Packages some really amazing deals. If needed we will run an extra funding campaign after the Kickstarter ends using our pledge manager website to reach the $50K CAD goal.

We have updated Stretch Goal 09 to give Backers an amazing reward. At $50K CAD pledged we`ll be adding 3 Crusader IV (FS support unit) and 3 Skirmisher (RC support unit) plastic miniatures to the Peace River Army Commander, Badlands Commander and their Hero of version Reward Level packages. Plus we`ll be adding 3 Chevalier (FS support unit) and 3 Jerboa (RC support unit) plastic miniatures to the NuCoal Army Commander, Badlands Commander and their Hero of version Reward Level packages. With this a Peace River or NuCoal Army Commander reward level will each include 18 plastic miniatures for $70 CAD pledged ($3.89 per mini). And the Badlands Commander reward level will include 36 plastic miniatures for $100 CAD pledged ($2.78 per mini). Plus we have made available all 4 of plastic miniatures as Add-Ons for an Extra Pledge right now for Backers that want to pickup extras, and make full Fire Support or Recon squads (combat groups) instead of support units for the GP and Strike squads.

FinalWeekHGBPeaceRiverandNuCoalKickstart

We had planned for a 3rd plastic injection mold at $75K CAD pledged that would have included the Peace River Argos, NuCoal Arbalestier, and Stoneheads badlands terrain as plastic miniatures. But for the Final Week we have pulled back on that plan and are now offering the Argos and Arbalestier as pewter miniatures in the Add-Ons for an Extra Pledge of $22 CAD each. Plus added our previously available resin terrain packs of Four Stoneheads in Sand ($22 CAD) and Four Stoneheads ($28 CAD) to the Add-Ons for an Extra Pledge for Backers that want to add some gaming terrain.

Thank You to all our Backers for your amazing support so far, we`ll be working hard to get the word out to more potential Backers this final week. We think the updated reward packages at $50K CAD pledged are amazing deals and should help convince a few more to show their support and click the Kickstarter Link below.

Another Successful Kickstarter, Thank You All!

 

PeaceRiverandNuCoalKickstarterThankYouAl

 

Thank you to all our amazing backers for your support of the Heavy Gear Blitz Peace River & NuCoal Core Plastic Miniatures Kickstarter. Your pledges raised $40,912 CAD, which gives us our initial funding goal of $25K for the first plastic injection mold and unlocked the first 6 Stretch Goals.

 

Kickstarter will process all the pledges over the next 2 weeks and we'll work on the Pledge Manager website to have it ready to send out invites to Backers soon after that. About a week after we email out invites to the Pledge Manager we plan to open it to outside Backers and start our extra funding campaign to get Stretch Goal 09 unlocked at $50K CAD and fund the second plastic injection mold. We'll make updates when the invites go out and when the Pledge Manager is opened to outside Backers.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/782735675/legendary-dragons-a-5th-edition-supplement?ref=user_menu
       
      Red dragons, black dragons, green dragons, gold dragons. They are great, but we’ve seen them before.  What makes a dragon unique among all others of its kin? What is its history, what are its motivations, and most importantly, what makes it legendary? Legendary Dragons answers all this and much, much more!
      Jetpack7 aims to bring back the mystery to Dragons and to make an "ordinary" Dragon encounter... extraordinary!
      12 New Unique Legendary Dragons with Stretch Goals of up to 20 Dragons! We’re cooking up content for your 5th Edition game! You’ll not only have brand new Legendary Dragons and their lore to throw at your players, but some new monsters, too!
      New Dragons New Wyverns New Drakes New Hydras Not only will GMs and Players get 12+ Legendary Dragons (with the option for up to 20), we have some other dragon-related goodies that we are planning:
      New Kobolds New Dragon Races New Lairs Dragon Cults Dragon Riders Dragon Hunters Dragon Hunting Factions Dragon Hunting & Monster Hunting Economies New spell components you can only get by hunting Dragons Enhance existing spells with your new Dragon spell components Dragon hoard Items Dragon Tactics and how to use Dragons effectively in your game!

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      I was in on the Chibi project they did earlier this year and it was delivered on-time and the quality was good.  This looks like an interesting assortment of figures, including good deals on  bunch of Heartbreaker stuff!
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/impact-miniatures-presents-the-lost-ks-mini-projec?ref=friends_launched
       
      Their synopsis:
       
      Not All Minis go to Heaven
       Impact! believes that lost and forgotten or unmade miniatures shouldn't stay lost to the hard drive abyss they've been relegated to.  
      Whether they were from discontinued lines, failed or undelivered projects we think they deserve to be resurected, brought into the light, and that's why this project is dedicated that end.   
      Today we give you a chance to get minis that are either no longer available, or never made it the light of day.  
      Over the past year Impact! has reached out to different Kickstarter Creators whose lines of miniatures failed to fund, were never got delivered or finished, or simply were discontinued after an initial printing run.     
      We've licensed or outright purchased everything shown in this project and now all that is left raise the capital for molds and materials and bring these amazing miniatures to backers to you, your friends, and your families and for gamers on tables everywhere!

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), Singapore (Singaporean 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 standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. 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.
