    The following is just good-natured conjecture on my part:

     

    I’m really wondering what all will be in the Bones 5.5 (V.V?) pledge manager. 

    Just going off what Reaper has stated in the past, IMO, the following things are likely to be available in the second PM:

    Core Set
    Greek Odyssey expansion
    Dungeon Dwellers expansion
    Dark Depths expansion
    War Mammoth
    Valfuryx (green dragon)
    Aganzarax (black dragon)
    Shavynra (blue dragon)
    Ildraedis (white dragon)
    Kalanzar (red dragon)
    Krateryx (smokey gray translucent shadow dragon)
    Dwarf King’s Crypt encounter
    Pirate Ship

     

    I’m sure some of the other encounter sets will be there, too, but I can’t recall how popular each individual one was, aside from Dwarf King’s Crypt.

     

    If Brinewind is offered I may get one. And the accessory set. I had been in kind of a funk towards the end of the open pledge and didnt really feel up to a lot of what I now want...

  2. I am wave 1… the only power up I got was the henchwomen… 😞

     

    if some one else gets their minis before me because of the henchwomen… those 

    henchwomem will get all the worst npc jobs in my pathfinder game! They will get eaten by dragons, get kidnapped and suffer abuse thst only the pc’s can save them from! They will rue the day that delayed my order…

  3.  I Dropped out. I am still following though. Pretty light in new minis.., but… they teased a 3D obstacle pack that has tables, barrels , market stalls , etc. these elements will have special rules that you can interact with… like searching the stalls for items or rolling barrels etc… 

     

    also two new game modes. A solo mode, so you can play by yourself if say a pandemic hits…and a new campaign mode where you can combine factions in like a grand alliance game. 
     

    the Solo mode sounds interesting… and I wouldn’t mind several packs of the 3D terrain… but am not back in just yet.

    My suggestion is in the top 12! Go vote for "Hooded/Robed monks/cultists" right now! 

     

    Male and female torsos, heads and possibly arms. 


    Hmmm. I hadn’t considered this set would include females, as wargames Atlantic has said in comments that they may do female sets but wouldn’t do mixed sets of male and female. They have said it would limit choices for one or the other as they would need to be distinct and seperate parts. 
     

    I didn’t vote for cultists as the Frostgrave ones are not bad, and plastic.
     

    I voted for landsknecht ogres… as I can use them in my pathfinder campaign and there was not a whole lot of other fantasy choices. That and I think these will look cool. But since the majority of things that made it to the final round are scifi…I’m guessing a sci-fi choice will win it.

  5. The Creator advised that Effin Cool is still waiting to get their new SiOCast machine, but he will post examples of other company's SiOCast minis in their next update. 

     

    Doing some searching on Google, it looks like its a way to use plastic (actual plastic not resin) with metal molds. The review i saw of the 15mm minis said that they are crisp and good, with some slight flexibility. But also said that mold lines are a bit difficult to remove. So it kind of sounded like something similar to BONES Black material. 

     

    Does anyone here have any experience with it? It looks like it has been around for at least a year, but I will admit that I never heard of it. 

  6. I dropped out... the new Addon, the Cardinal's Guard, look really good, and $15 for 3 sculpts looks like a fair price... but in general it looks too expensive for what I would be getting and the miniatures the core pledge arent super enticing. I like 2... The good swordmaster and the Noble lady with frog... I kind of like reloading servant boy with musket too... 

     

    Will keep an eye, i may still be lured back in. 

  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/darkmaenad/dark-maenad-fire-and-steel/description

     

    A kickstarter for basically 2 warbands with access to the minis from their first kickstarter as well. 

     

    Interesting part is they are available in 3 formats. 

     

    .STL files, Metal and injection plastic using something called SiOCast. The physical minis are being produced for them by Effincool Miniatures. And the desert girls will be featured in a miniature game produced by some other company. 

     

    The 2 warbands look cool. The black powder girls... look very Empire/landsknechty... and the Cold Steel girls, look very Araby... 

     

    All of the new minis are safe for work, but some of the addons from their last campaign (which i did not include pictures of) have some female frontal nudity. 

     

    I am interested in the SiOCast minis... I saw a review of some 15mm in that material. I only backed a $1... right now. But I like both new warbands and the original one they did... so I will see what i want in the pledge manager.

    For me it's a bit expensive for what is offered (might have to do with all the other projects that I have my eyes on ... looking for reasons not to back this or that ...). Though if those stretch goal minis keep coming in and are all as nice as Arnold ... uh oh ...

    I have to agree with the current value. I am in for the plastic set. $66 for 11 plastic miniatures and no new boards, does not seem like a great value. Though the creator said the stretch goals will make it a good value…

     

    however… I don’t like the Arnold mini… I mean I do like it, but it really does not seem to fit. Someone pointed out that arm grafts were around… ok.., but articulated robot arms with working fingers… to that sophistication… no. And the next stretch goal is more cards for the commoners… I may not stay in this one… or if I do I may just get a couple metal minis…

    I saw reported on another forum that in a stream of some sort, the creator of this project stated the “x3” guard sculpts will be reduced to two of each, rather than three of each sculpt. I didn’t see the stream myself, so take with a grain of salt. 

     

    On the preview  page, they changed the 3 of each to 2 or each. But looks like some other minis will be added. I asked them on their facebook page if there will be a minis only pledge. They advised no. But did state that the minis will be available as an add-on. So you could just back for $1 and add the minis... just no stretch goals.

    I really like the design of the figures from the first Kickstarter.  I got the minis in plastic, which was a bit of a mistake since some of the minis have hands that look like blobs.  Others are just fine.  I will probably go for the metal ones even if they are a tad larger this time.

     

    vutpakdi. What minis did you get that had the issue with the hands? I kind of want to go and check now. :) I didnt look too hard when I got them. I kind of just did a once over... did some hot water straitening on a couple, then boxed them by gang type/nationality. Which shows the mindset i was in when i got them... I was kind of on a hobby break and just going through the motions...

    Will think about it. I was quite satisfied with what I got from their Kickstarter and how they handled it ... but I'm trying to reduce my KS spending and my mini hoard (yeah, you can stop laughing now).

     

    Yeah... i feel that too. There are 3 kickstarters in April (this one, Fireforge Dwarves and Dungoens and Lasers)... after not really doing any for the last couple months. I havent played a single game of Anno Domini. I liked the minis, but they are teh tiniest bit smaller than my other gaming minis. They will be used next time i run my Pathfinder game, but i already have plenty i could do that with...

  11. Anno Domini 1666 was a Kickstarter for a swashbuckling board game with some magic and supernatural elements.  Players run a "gang" of characters based on literary heroes... like the 3 musketeers.

     

    You have objectives and can use skills and combat to acheive objectives. The game takes place in a fantasy Vienna.
     

    I was satisfied with all the minis I got in the first Kickstarter, though due to certain world events never have gotten a game played ...yet.

     

    so they will be kickstarting an expansion.  Just got a preview of one of the exclusive characters. On a side note, I had no idea that Alexander Dumas was biracial. His father was a noble and his mother a native. Being of similar racial stock, I find that interesting. 
     

    “And here is a miniature of Alexandre Dumas (3D render to be more precise). 

    Alexandre Dumas will be our Kickstarter and convention only miniature. Well, we hope there will be any conventions we can visit in the future...  He will be also narrator of our campaign and you will be informed about some events from his perspective (or rather from the perspective he wants to impose on you - be careful!).

    Dumas is not an amazing fencer. If necessary, he can draw a sword or shoot a pistol, but he believes that a feather is more powerful than a sword. Charisma (quite high), Intelligence and Connections help him with his reporter's tasks but his most powerful weapon is his modest notebook. It may happen that the story told by Dumas looks completely different than in reality and the heroic deeds will be forgotten or even presented in a completely negative way. In the game's mechanic, this means that once during game you will be able to prevent your opponent of getting point(s) for killing your character. Obviously only if Dumas manages to survive to the end of the game and will describe the situation in the way he would like it to be presented to a wide audience...”
