    I think if you could actually get a good scifi tabletop RPG.  You might get more scifi miniatures.  
    Sadly there just isn't anything on par with D&D and Pathfinder.

     

    My group has enjoyed both Starwars and Starfinder.... but we are more of a fantasy group... Still some of the chrnoscope stuff has great crossover appeal even for fantasy.

    I went in for a dollar and am still waiting to up.

    If Reaper would confirm the material of the ship and the price tag it would help.

    Also when it is clear what's in the expansions I might up.

    As of now, I'm waiting.

     

    I am kind of in the same boat.... see what i did there? I am at $120 because I wanted Wave 1.... but not sure if I will stay in.

    Yay! I finally caught up!  (Now that I’m past my work deadline) I’m pretty excited about the ship. When talking about the size, it reminded me of the USS Constellation which is docked in the harbor in Baltimore (which @Chris Palmer and @Smokestack may know about as they are from Maryland). It is a pretty cool ship. 
     

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Constellation_(1854)

     

    Yeah, I think every child in Maryland goes on a field trip to Fort McHenry, the Shot tower, Betsy Ross's house and the Constellation. And now i don't live far from John Wilkes Booth house here in Bel Air. Though as an adult I have passed these things, I havent been to them in 30 years...

  4. With my eyes continuing to get worse..,.. My last eye exam i had bleeding in my Macula but not Macular degeneration... but the Doc did not want to prescribe glasses until my next eye exam in 4 months to see if the swelling goes down... I have not really painted in a couple months and the last things I did paint I did not enjoy... 

     

    So, With the ship. I think having the ship in bones color looks fine for playing. But if I have to put effort in to painting on it just to be able to use it in a game, that is a big turn off. Sure i could probably spray paint in brown and dry brush or apply a wash or something... but that's more effort and will still leave it looking not great just to be able to use it at all. And if all the things involved like canons are also translucent then it would require more than a simple spray, unless I am spending effort to have brown cannons an ship. 

     

    I am happy that people who want translucent ships will get them, but admit that I am disappointed.  Who knows though, i may still get one if its clear, but i doubt it.

     

    Wagons, that is something i want though... Unless of course people want ghost wagons and they become translucent too... or ghost catapults... or ghost greeks...

    From the campaign page:

     

    (quote)

    YOUR BACKER RESPONSIBILITY IN THIS KICKSTARTER

    If you do not log in and confirm your pledge in the Reaper Pledge Manager by August 31, 2020 you agree that we have fulfilled our obligations to you in full for payment or donations received. However, we may, at our discretion, refund or ship your pledge if you contact us and confirm your pledge after August 31, 2020.

    Unconfirmed pledges make it difficult for us to plan production and logistics. If you confirm your pledge late (after April 30, 2021) some items may not still be available. This means that part, if not all, of your rewards may not be available and/or your pledge may be forfeit.

    (End quote)

    So it looks like a soft close on April 30 (6 months), and a hard close on Aug 31 (10 months). Also note that Reaper DID extend the pledge manager for 1 month (at backer request) for Bones 4. Could happen again, but I would not count on it.

     

    Just noticed the date in the second bit is 2021. Emailed Reaper to ask, I will share the response.

     

    Well, April 2021 is the estimated delivery date. So, maybe if you contact them after that they will still try to fufill but cant guarantee they will have everything on hand to be able to deliver. 

    ESTIMATED DELIVERYApr 2021

    Was it just a mention or they showed stuff?

     

    To me this is surprising. Really was not expecting that. Do cloud Giants fit within Greek lore?

     

    Storm giant , you can say looks Greek, but cloud?

     

    Sanjay

    The showed a graphic that had Yephima and said Greek expansion 2... 

     

    I wasn’t planning on getting the Greek expansion so this probably means I have to wait til retail for her. But who knows what I will add in the PM. 
     

    they also said they will talk to Ed about a cannon pack. I am excited for a canon pack.

    It's most likely out of my price range, so I'm happy for them to offer whatever brings in the most pledges.


    well, currently... if the ship is solid, and...

     

    * under $100. Then I will get 2

    * under $150. Then I will get 1

    * $60 (I can dream!) then I will get 3

     

    other than that not much else has interested me in the ks. I may get the blue dragon to make in to a linnorn. And the child heroes...

     

    I like the dark sea expansion but the stuff I like in it (merfolk and sehaughin) I would need several for a good encounter and can’t pay $50 x 5 sets to get them. 
     

    oh if they offer cannons for individual sale, I will get a bunch extra for my play Mobil and fisher price ships.

    I will try to temper my excitement about the ship in case it won't be a solid one.

     

    For now there is little else I really really need, most of the stuff I want is part of sets which contain too much I don't want.

    Those minis will be bought in retail then, like that Hydra.

     

    I do hope the rest of the underwater set will be to my liking. And I might get that Goroloth.

    Maybe the paints.

     

     

    I share this feeling. 
     

    I may not paint the ship for a long while. If it’s in Grey I can still use it effectively until I do. If it’s clear, I can’t and it would not have any detail until it gets painted. So, unfortunately if it is only available in clear plastic then I would pass too.

  10. Looks like 30 figures. 2 large and 1 huge. And then 18 bones 4 kobolds. So 48 figures for $120. I know it will get better as more stuff is added but that initial offer looks lighter than previous. I have been getting 2 cores each is 1-4. May pass on the core this time. Don’t need any more kobolds. I do like the dragon, the fat mayor looking guy, and the stag though. And Krampus. But don’t really need a krampus. 

    Oh, and need a couple snake sword ladies to go with all my other snake people from 4. Too bad no gorilla ladies.

    Not gonna lie, I'm kind of wishing I hadn't had to back out, but such is life.  Stupid surprise bills jumping out at you even when you have budgets and funds for various things... 

    I actually felt bad about backing. I mean, I had already told my wife I was. Spent less then I had quoted. But.... We had a few surprise expenses come up, as well as expenses that we knew were coming... but... still felt bad.
