Dang there are a couple minis in there that I really like!  But alas I am still waiting for LoW and of course Limbo so I have to sit this one out. 

 

The ones I do like though are Persephone, Atlas, dude on Pegasus, Icarus and Athena.  I don't know about Atlas but I think Reaper sells some minis close to the other ones I listed so maybe I'll just grab them.

I've put it on remind.

 

Was really disappointed I missed it the first time, but I don't think I'll be able to get in on this one either.

can I just say that these minis are without a doubt the best PVC minis I have had the pleasure of owning. Or even seen elsewhere. They are that good. I have the original set with many expansions, and am getting the new stuff this time round.

 

Of course, many of the infantry-size minis suffer a bit from "one piece casting" poses, but the gods and monsters... :wow:

I'd like to get in on this one, but since I've been waiting months for all the stuff they didn't ship (and absolutely no idea when they will get shipped), I'm actually leaning toward just selling the game and being done with Monolith.

 

The game itself is rather fun.  But primarily a 2-player game - despite having options for 3/4 player games.

I have a friend that went all-in on the first campaign, but sold it off due to frustration with Monolith before he even got it. He said he wasn't a fan of the gameplay videos and how Monolith was dealing with things. I haven't had a chance to delve further into that at all. It is interesting that you mention it being fun, though. It has me tempted to seek out gameplay videos, but honestly the frustration with the company has me more than a little hesitant.

So, let me define "fun" a little more.  Effectively, the game comes down to luck of the draw on getting the cards you need/want in order to activate the unit(s) you want to.  But at the same time, you can't be too aggressive in playing cards out of your hand or you then end up with only being able to draw and play a single card each turn.  That can be desperately frustrating.  The mechanics themselves are easy enough, but as normal these days there are a plethora of special abilities to try and keep straight.  You'll also need a fairly sizable table to put the board and all the unit dashboards out.  I don't think it's any bigger than Chthulu Wars though..

 

If I remember correctly, human units are approximately 30/32mm.  The monsters and gods can be MUCH larger, of course.

 

As for my personal frustration, I'm missing somehere around 8 items from my pledge.  I contacted the fulfillment center in February and we got everything logged.  Followed up in late March...got a canned response about how they had the request and it would be processed.  Contacted Monolith directly in late April - no response, but I did get an email from Funagain stating that they were closing up shop and to contact Monolith directly.  An hour later I got another email from Funagain stating that they were, in fact, still handling distribution.  All went silent for about 10 days - when I got another email from Funagain stating that they were no longer handling fulfillment.  A few days later Monolith finally acknowledged it in a KS update and stated that ShipNaked would be handling the rest of the fulfillment (for North America and Japan, anyway).  And that's where we stand.  No idea when I'll actually get those missing (and 1 damaged) items.  My suspicion is that they won't be coming until they get everything reprinted as part of this 1.5 campaign.

That doesn't sound like something I want to be a part of...

I am also concerned how the split with Mythic Games plays into their production options for this round.

Agreed.  And honestly, Batman was a re-skinned version of Conan.  This is a reboot of something that they haven't even completely fulfilled from the first time. And the new models just aren't grabbing me.  And actually, I had a chat with a friend last night and decided that this game is much more about the minis than it is about the gameplay.  Not to mention that it takes up a ton of storage space.  So, off to ebay it will go.

Might many of the problems outlined above have to do with the american shipping partner more than anything else? My own experience with fulfilment of this game is good, but I am in Norway, and so have had to do with the European Pilibert. 

 

I got the main shipment which sadly was missing the "rise of the titans" expansion and a single hellhound from the core box. So I sent a missing items claim to Philibert via the link provided. The forms to fill out were a bit draconic but I do understand why as it reduces the possibility of misunderstanings drastically.

 

Maybe a week or two went by, I got a "please confirm" email which I replied to, and a week or so after that I got the missing items and fulfilment was complete. So that is a plus in my book. Sorry to hear about others having problems here.

 

anyway, I am in it for the lovely, lovely minis, and cannot comment on the gameplay.

      Some neat looking alien terrain.  I like the idea of curved walls as it should make handling miniatures easier.  Looks like this creator has delivered a resin project before (a dice tower).
       
      *edit* Not sure why images aren't working, I'll try again later.
       
      Also some cool stuff in the stretch goals.

      The Hunters 2114 is a fully cooperative game which enables you to play solo or with a group of friends.
      Players become machine hunters who participate in a complex and gripping campaign comprised of 200 story cards. The narrative presented on the cards is full of story twists and difficult decisions to make.
      During the campaign, players execute missions. Each of them takes 30 to 60 minutes to play. It may take place during the day or at nighttime, in various weather conditions. Every time players must choose proper tactics and equipment matching current circumstances.
      Players may barter with local inhabitants, undertake various jobs, overcome unexpected obstacles or expand their base in order to manufacture over 70 different types of gear from parts scavenged during the game.

      I always liked the Idea of a KS for a complete RP module, minis, terrain and all. FOI is a nice company.

      WHAT IS THIS KICKSTARTER ABOUT?

      To produce three new resin 32mm scale fantasy football complete teams along with the DeathChariot.

      This KickStarter is a joint venture between Rolljordan Miniatures, Heresy Miniatures and Impact! Miniatures to bring three incredible looking metal Fantasy Football teams into affordable resin for about half the price of the metal teams to give more gamers the opportunity to own these great models.

      The miniatures in the teams are the new resin that Impact! started using this month that has good flexibility while still being able to filed. The resin is to be painted as easily (both brush and spray primers can work). The miniatures all come with bases and are provided unpainted. The miniatures will require light clean up and assembly. Impact! Miniatures has created several KickStarters and delivered to all backers on all our previous KickStarters so bid with confidence.

      I know for many coaches I talk to that making sure a new team fits in with the current 32mm scale is very important. All 3 of the new teams fit very well with the 32mm scale. From left to right, Norse Ice Trolless, Norse Thrower, Human Lineman, Kalle Imp, Heresy Ogre, Legio Halfling and Legio Treeman.


      another Impact! fantasy football KS, they're nice and reliable so if you want any of the stuff back with confidence
