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.

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.

      If you pledge before November 14th 11:59 EST (17:59 Paris/CET, 16:59 London) you will get the Ezio the Assassin miniature for free (a $7 USD/ 7€ / 6 £ / $10 CAD value). The miniature will be available as an add-on after that and does not have any effect on the gameplay. 
      Cliquez ici pour une version française de cette page.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a tabletop board game with miniatures aiming to capture the essence of Assassin's Creed® and turn it into a fun, fully cooperative game for 1 to 4 players. 
      It is played in a campaign spanning several months in 1509 in which you play a small team of Assassins in charge of developing the Headquarters of the Brotherhood of Assassins in Venice, after Ezio Auditore da Firenze has defeated Cesare Borgia and his allies, between the events of Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood and Assassin’s Creed®: Revelations.
      Players will use their Assassin's skills, equipment and their own sense of tactics to complete various objectives while evading detection from the Guards.
      The campaign will pit you against Templars, let you explore unknown events of the Brotherhood in Venice, and determine the fate of the Brotherhood in the famous City of Masks.
      Assassin’s Creed®: Brotherhood of Venice is a Triton Noir game under license by Ubisoft Entertainment.
      First time on Kickstarter ? Click here to see how it works.
      The game will be available in English or French. You will be able to choose your language in the pledge manager (after the Kickstarter campaign). In addition, we will offer free pdf files for German, Spanish and Italian languages with the rules, the campaign book and the cards' text.

      Imagine a camera with no lens, no focus, no mirror and definitely no batteries that can create images like this.
      No need to imagine anymore, it is here. This will change the way you think about light, time and memories. We have created the ONDU pinhole camera series MK III to reignite your spark in photography, and most of all to enable you to create captivating images with light in the simplest way possible.  
       
       
      There's a lot of nice pictures on the project page. Enjoy them, then back the project. 
      I own the very limited edition 'Box' from the first KS(less than 20 were made), and the 6x17 OnduRama from the second KS, and both are very nice cameras. They did have issues that caused delays back then(with getting the machinery delivered and so on), but they were pretty good at keeping backers updated. But now they have all the machines in the workshop, so I expect there won't be any big delays this time
       
      Necessary disclaimer; they considered me so helpful in the comments section that they gave me a 135 pocket camera as a bonus. so yeah, I may not necessarily be completely impartial.

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.
