I need* that skeleton.

 

* for a given value of need not correlating to any kind of actual necessity

That pledge system and their self-contradictory comments on it are a train wreck, on a level that I personally feel it violates the "clearly presented" rule.

 

Also, they're technically offering prohibited items (you're apparently pledging for certificates/coupons to use on their website), for which they give this explanation:

Quote

The reason we are doing the gift certificate is because KS doesn't provide addresses for us to ship the product to our customers. Yes these are Dragonlock tiles.

 

I suppose that may just be the project creator bumbling along because they don't know the first thing about clear communications and how Kickstarter actually works (cf. getting the address through Kickstarter's survey), but it is certainly is one hell of a red flag.

I really like the medusa and the four-armed skeleton. But I will not back this as I still have no clear idea how that "gift certificate" system works. If it works like "pledge $50 and get minis for $60" (for example) why have such strange pledge levels that seemingly give you a certain pack of miniatures at all?

And I always thought that KS WOULD INDEED provide addresses (maybe something changed) as not every KS I backed had a pledge manager.

 

So I think (!) I got a clear answer: If you back, you get exactly those miniatures listed for your pledge level and can add more at a discounted price. (Which is exactly what one of the updates, said, too, but posts in the KS comment section seemed to contradict that). That means I'm definitely out.

no, all Kickstarter provides to the Creators are the pledge level you pick, your pledge amount, and your email address., and the money.

I've been told they have started adding a backer number, but I've not seen that.

Love the minis but I'm not a fan of the pledge level contents. Example, I like the skeleton, but not enough to want it. I do like the dwarf(s). Kinda torn on this one right now. Jason & Bobby are probably my top 2 favorite (if not top 5) sculptors right now + both are great guys so we shall see.

Huh? That's not how it is supposed to work. Kickstarter's creator handbook says in the fulfillment section (and has for some time):

Quote

If you designated that a reward requires physical shipping, the survey will automatically ask backers for their mailing addresses.

 

I know that's indeed how it used to work for quite some time, and I wwas pretty sure it still does.

 

If Kickstarter has stealth changed this detail without properly documenting it, this is indeed a red flag for trusting Kickstarter any longer.

All the creator gets at the end of the KS is what Ladystorm said,

 

however you can  do a KS survey (or whatever they call it) to gather info like addresses, but it's reputedly very clunky and non user friendly both in what you can ask, and in the output that you get

 

so maybe worth doing for a small project with 1 or 2 pledge levels, you're going to fulfil yourself by handwriting addresses in the kitchen,

 

but pretty much useless if its a large project with lots of pledge levels/add ons being fulfilled by a warehouse by people who might want the info in a database they can query & print out from (that's why all these project creators pay backerkit, crowdox etc, I'm sure they'd love it if they didn't have to)

I’m considering the monster level pledge. I already have so many dwarves from Oathsworn that haven’t gotten any love. But I’m always down for different takes on monsters for my dnd games!!

 

Having read through the comments, and what with all the changes being made, I am a bit concerned as to how fulfillment will end up happening. Jason and Bobby are amazing talents, but it seems like the project is drawing some red flags due to the mutable nature from the onset.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.

      Good day everyone. Here is 77293, Wererat Berserker a Dark Heaven Bones model sculpted by Jason Wiebe. I cut off some of the original plastic base and used it to change the model's posture. I like the dinumic pose of this malicious evil doer.

      Artipia Games was robbed at Essen last month, and they're Kickstarting packs of promo cards to make up for the loss.

      I don't think anyone has flagged up this yet:

      Starting on October 15th. I rather like the Samurai Chow, and some of the others look good too.

      This goes live today (i'll add a link when it does)
       

      (almost complete pre-production image, minor changes possible)

      unboxing of the game
       
      (now if you want tiles for a dungeon crawl this looks a good deal)
       
      this is a reprint of the well regarded boardgame  Caustrophobia (https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/36932/claustrophobia) and it's first expansion with all new art assets and minis (unpainted)
       
      Monolith has already manufactured the game so it will be limited to 10,000 copies *I;ve asked and there are spares to cope with loss/damage during delivery)and deliveries are scheduled for January so minimal risk so ideal is you want to KS but worry about getting stung (but on the other hand if you don't like KS as a shop probably not for you)
