I was expecting to get reeled in, but so far only Hastur tempts me, and looks like it might be retailed in a separate box. Holding off for now, will see how long my resolve holds.

Feeling this as well. For 160$, I think I can hold off until retail if I still want it.

I can't wait to see what people are selling the giant Cthulhu for on eBay!  

 

I think I might try to pick up the Hastur figure of eBay once its out but overall this is an easy pass for me.

You dont get the giant Cthulhu and I think there is some exclusive content as well that you would miss out on. 

 

Looks like they are talking about doing something to make the game content for the giant Cthulhu a separate add on for people who don't want the big mini. Apparently the miniature doubles as the game board for that content so they'd have to do some other game board to make it an add on.

Looking at the mini though, I'm not seeing it.  Sure there's some space around the base of the mini, but his hands aren't out to allow you to put on there, his stance and shape aren't going to allow the investigator minis to rest on him anywhere...  

 

I'm in for now and slowly climbing the pledge levels, one month at a time, but I have a feeling I'm going to drop to the 100 level or all together by the end.  Trying to talk a buddy into pledging for it as he's a huge Cthulhu fan so I can paint some of his minis instead of owning them.

I really don't like how CMON is stretching out the goals on this one.  $170k to unlock Dagon, and then another $90k for cards and tokens.  A quarter of a million dollars for one complete stretch goal is crazy.

You can come to Denver and paint mine! :)

I agree.  This is already a boring Kickstarter campaign.    Which is not to say the game won't be fun.  Certainly bound to be more fun than this project so far.

 

The fact that they decided in advance that it would only be 14 days suggests that they don't have enough fun content to keep the stretch goals popping up regularly.  Zombicide Invader (a meh campaign from my perspective) was 24 days.

 

Zombicide Green Horde (the last cmon campaign I personally backed) was 29 days (twice as long as this!), and managed to get me enthusiastic with the imaginative stretch goals. 

 

The stretch goals so far seem like placeholders to me.   In particular they lack one obvious quality which seems peculiar in its exclusion.  

 

The game is based on the provocative premise that:

 

"Madness is always at your side when battling unthinkable monstrosities from other dimensions. In fact, the investigators already start the game with a diagnosed insanity, which will will be triggered by your encounters with the occult. You may be doomed by your mental breakdown, or learn to use it to your advantage. The closer you are to losing your mind completely, the more powerful your skills will become."

 

Imagery on cards reflects this idea but the miniatures themselves don't, from what I can see.  Just a bunch of people standing around holding guns and looking pensive.  This is a missed opportunity to do something really engaging and original.

 

If the KS exclusives were alternative sculpts of the key heroes in increasing states of mental distress, now THAT would get my attention.  Like those classic Murch sculpts for the Rafm CoC line.

Yep. 

 

I'm rapidly losing interest, it all feels very 'by the numbers', a classic example of when Kickstarter becomes a simple preorder rather than something the community have helped shape

I was kind of shocked we didnt get marble or frosted dice.

 

I expect a dice bag to follow at some point.

 

Definitely "meh."

Exactly! CMON made zombie versions of their zombicide heroes, so making crazed versions of their Cthulhu Investigators seems like a natural.

      The Homestarrunner folks have a kickstarter up for Trogdor!! the Board Game.

      There is an option to get the game with some cute meeples, or a set of miniatures.

      Anyone think they can make those minis look really good?  It is certainly a challenge.

      Hello All,
      My miniatures company, Deraj Studios, is launching a kickstarter campaign to produce a new line of true-scale 32mm miniatures from a fantastical version of the Sub-Sahara on Tuesday, July 31st. The eventual purpose of these miniatures is for use in my in-development skirmish game, Portals: Worlds Collide. 
      In the meantime, they're an excellent choice of miniatures for your favorite flavor of pen & paper roleplaying game, as well as in games of Frostgrave, Kings of War, Open Combat and a variety of other 'minis-agnostic' games in the 28mm-32mm scales.
      Here are some of the miniatures that are going to be featured in the campaign:
       
       

      Mudlings - 18 and 19mm to the top of their heads.
       
       
       
       
       

      Brute Boulder Tosser - 28mm to the top of his head
       
       
       
       

      Brute Beater - 34mm to the top of his head
       
       
       
       
       

      Slorn Packbeast & Tryl Merchant - 65mm to the top of Merchant's head, 55mm to the top of Slorn Packbeast's head.
       
       
       
       

      Grum Snatcher - This miniature will be 85mm to the top of his head. 
       
       
       
       
       

      Grum Shaman - This miniature will be 85mm to the top of his head.
       
       
       
       
       

      Grum Berserker - this miniature will be 85mm to the top of his head.
       
       
       
       
       

      Grum Seer - This miniature will be 35mm to the top of his head.
       
       
       
       
       

      Grum Berserker & Shaman Set, WIP Sculpt.
       
       
       
       
      We are a growing tabletop games company producing a line of true 32mm fantasy figures inspired by various folklore around the world. Our previous campaign and the resulting miniatures from it were based on Slavic fantasy, I'm excited to explore my ideas for fantastical versions of different cultures with you all.
       
      I'll be updating this post as the launch date draws nearer with more of the miniatures and concept art featured in the campaign, as well as a few spotlights on the artists of Deraj Studios.
       
      Thank you all, c&c appreciated.
       
      - Jared Anderson of Deraj Studios

      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Hi all, 
       
      I feel a bit bad that this is my first post here on Reaper Forum advertising a kickstarter. I used to go by the Moniker Kaybee or Kaybee81 (can't remember) but as I'm known as beefcake on other fora I thought it best to go by the same name everywhere. Anyway here is a link to some STL files for purchase.


      The Wizard's Tower contains stackable tower sections to create your own unique Wizard's Tower. 
      Files have been scaled for 28mm miniatures but, as with all 3d printable files, you have the ability to scale them up or down to suit your gaming needs.
      The initial reward consists of 7 different modular tower pieces and a ladder. All of which have been created on Blender, run through a repair tool, to check for any non-manifold parts and other errors, and printed.

      [li]Tower roof[/li]
      [li]Single window tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower section with door[/li]
      [li]Tower bridge (2 bridge sections link together)[/li]
      [li]Double window tower section[/li]
      [li]Windowless tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower base[/li]
      [li]and a ladder[/li]

      [/li]
      [/list] All for NZD $10 (roughly USD $6.80)
       
      The tower pieces can be oriented in almost any direction to provide a different look each time you game.
