Wow, those are pricy.  Pretty, but pricy. 

 

Wish they would stop calling it CNC Molding though, since it's actually CNC Milling that's being done... :p

Forgive the dumb question, what does the CNC part stand for?

Given what it takes to work with the stuff, I was surprised that the Titanium was NOT the most expensive option!

It isn't a dumb question at all :)

I didn't realize it was hard to work with but it would make sense, seeing that you can have it permanently get colour distortions with "relative ease" through various means.  It's also stupidly expensive in thee first place because of its unique properties. 

 

I'm surprised silver is even offered, most of the other metals are at least reasonably hard, but... Silver?  Not used to seeing silver as an option for something that will see regular wear and tear..

The silver just gains more character over time ^_^

The thing that bothers me about this, even though the creator has several small successful kickstarters behind them, is that there is no information about the company or where production is taking place.

 

The projects location says it's here in Vancouver Canada, but the project creator is in Winnipeg, yet whomever wrote the kickstarters text obviously does not have English as their first language.

 

This reminds me of other kickstarters Ive seen where it's turned out the creator is simply importing already existing product from china and promoting it on kickstarter as something new.

 

Even without the high prices this would be an easy pass for me.

The day I pay $300 for a single die is the day I officially have too much money and need to start a foundation to feed or house the homeless. 

 

Sheesh!  If anyone cares or thinks this is an investment, its approximately a 1000% markup on the price of the raw silver.  Its also very easy to work...

      There's only a few days left in this KS, but I just realized that there's no thread for it here, and it looks like a great game. There's nothing in it to paint, but I know that a lot of people here are role-players, so I'm sure more than a few are interested in Shadowrun.

      Not sure how many here are wargamers, but these are pretty cool!  I have a number of them and they keep coming out with new designs.  Useful for a variety of games, or just a really different blanket.

      Hi Guys,
       
      I have read the guidelines of posting kickstarters and hope I am doing this correctly.
       
      If anyone has a chance come along and check out my kickstarter project specialising in hardwood dice boxes.
      If you have any thoughts or future stretch goal ideas then please I would love to hear them.

      Playmats.Eu isn't a new name for many gamers. They've been supplying playmats, 2D terrain and even some 3D accessories to retail customers worldwide and even provided components for a few successful Kickstarters. Now they've launched a campaign for Resinarium Bridges - a new product line of exclusive, hand painted bridges for wargames.

      With the new brand, they hope to provide customers with high-end 3D terrain: the sculpts are detailed and made of resin, and they come hand-painted out of the box (though there is an option to buy a plain resin cast too, if you fancy painting them yourself). Anyone looking for a nice-looking tactical chokepoint for their battles, can back their Kickstarter to bring the new line to life.

      You can see the campaign for yourself here: http://kck.st/2JEME8c

      If it sounds like something up your alley don't wait too long - in the first 48 hours of the campaign, every backer gets one of their modular rivers (with an anti-slip foam base) for free.

      You can currently choose from four models: Wooden, Stone, Orcish Wooden and Orcish Stone. The first two fit pretty much any heroic-scale game, while the latter work great in fantasy settings. More bridges, including an Elven one and a Sci Fi one, are planned if Stretch Goals are met. In a rather nice twist,  you don't have to make a decision on the Bridge model(s) the moment you pledge. You will choose which models you'd like to receive after the campaign ends, in the Pledge Manager.
       
      Let me know your thoughts!
