    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.

    I played Massive Darkness. You're not missing anything. <_<

     

    It wasn't a bad game. My group played about 4 times. It was fun. We did stumble on a character/gear combination that was really broken looking.  We couldn't find anything in the rule book, and initially found conflicting arguments on the web. after about 30 minutes of the game coming to a halt for us to look it up, we eventually did find an official ruling and we were in fact doing it wrong. (I dont remember the specifics but one player got a relic thing that let them do damage anytime they entered a square to all enemies... It did damage to all enemies... and the damage amount basically killed all enemies in teh square... The character had an ability that let them move out of squares with enemies and move into a new square... So the player moved into a zone. Killed all the enemies, then moved to another zone and killed all the enemies their too. So, all the bad guys were getting insta-killed and that player was getting lots of loot and xp... Once that was resolved the game got back on track. 

     

    I have not been interested in CMON games in a while. Still like the minis. If i thought it would be worth the effort, I would sell Zombicide ,1 2 and 4, as well as the Others, Blood Rage, (and while not CMON) would also sell Conan and Mythic Battles Pantheon.

     

    Edit: Would probably only keep Zombicide Black Plague/Green Horde and Massive Darkness.

  4. Well, as we all know, the pyramids were power plants gifted by our ancient alien astronaut visitors that served as Tesla Towers and helped the flow of Vril across the empire. This Pyramid/Vril battery is small, because it is on the outskirts of the empire and power needs are modest. We just need some  Dendera light bulbs to complete the scene. Though this one could also be in disrepair as the working one would have been encased in polished limestone and had a smooth reflective surface and been capped in gold. 

     

    Perhaps the shifty Halflings stole the gold, and dismantled the limestone to be used in other construction, not realizing what the true purpose of the pyramid was. Maybe the undead, once an ancient advanced power, took the secrets of the pyramids with them in their eternal sleepless slumber. Or, maybe the elves, knowing that mankind could not be trusted with such power, now wage an eternal war to rid the world of all traces of this dangerous technology.

  5. I am just finishing my Council of Wyrms game this Friday. It was Greek/bronze aged themed with a party of all dragons. So... I probably wont need greek minis or dragons anytime in the near future. (though will still likely be interested in dragons, especially "Large or smaller" 50mm or less. I like asian themed miniatures, but... havent played an asian inspired game in over 12 years... Not since a 3rd edition Oriental Adventures/ LOt5R game.  So not sure if I would get an Asian themed expansion.... But Undersea? Yes! Pirates? Yes! Pirate Ship(s)!!!!!? YES!!!! Demon girls? Yes! 

     

    I am not sure what I am looking for in this, but I do know that I don't use the epically big minis often.... Even in a game with a party of dragons, the largest we encountered was a Gargantuan T-Rex (thank you bones T-Rex). So it will be interesting to see what catches my fancy this time. 

     

    Edit: Having a Gargantuan T-Rex swallow whole a large silver dragon was pretty fun... But ultimately spelled doom for the T-Rex as the dragon was able to full attack from inside the belly.... where the natural armor was weaker.... that meal really turned against him...

  6. Another interesting thing is, they have another project going on right now for minis too. The other one is for Steam punk humans and bondage elves. The Steam punk guys look like they could fit malifaux. The elves are kind of dark elf-y. With the female ones a little more on the bondage side (and less clothed) than the male. Not a criticism, just an interesting choice. They even mentioned that you can combine shipping between projects as they will be  produced and fulfilled at the same time. 


  7. I do hope they have the $1 pledge level again this time. I just backed a pretty expensive ks and my wife took issue with it... :unsure: I guess having a daughter just enter college and a son who will be entering next year will do that...,

     

    so so I really can’t have much of a visible presence on this one. Though by my birthday and tax refund season I will be fine...

    Nothing for me yet.

     

    So, the project before this one, the lost minis project, has not delivered yet either. I have not received anything yet... he did say that he would hopefully have up to backer #40 done by the end of this week. I’m backer 50... so hopefully soon... I guess delays have caused both projects to be behind but find it odd that he is fulfilling orders on a subsequent project before finishing the earlier one...

    I would send them a complaint and ask for replacements

     

    Its worth a try. The packaging was pretty bad, but they countered comments in the ks saying “well it was free shipping”. This is true, but they did not offer any alternatives for shipping. The creator did say they would offer tracking numbers in future projects (at buyers expense upon request). 

     

    I put in the comments “

     

    On that note. Jean Christian Sokol had items that were damaged in delivery. Your response was "nothing glue cant fix". I am a little disappointed by that response. Most companies would ask for pictures and some would offer replacements or at the very least an apology. Your position seems to be "oh Well" which i find disappointing.  I think you guys are a good company and I really like your products but people stick with companies based on customer service and your responses seem to be a bit... cold.”

     

    the response was:

    “About customer service, all people that contact us by PM, not in public, get all they need, i think nice people first ask by PM about problems and if didn´t get solution, is logic, talk in public, but if some throw hate is rare get love. Otherwise, thanks for contacting privately, we take our work very seriously and hope to do our best from here on out. We are sorry if any answer from us has caused you a problem. Thank you for supporting us.”

     

    edit: just want to restate that I didn’t have any damaged models. The minis were rattling inside the box, so I likely just got lucky. But all mine were undamaged.

  10. I'm impressed with the giant. This is looking good. I thought the halfling fliers would have a desert theme... these look more european. Not a bad thing, just not what i was expecting. They don't fit with the Halfling raiders. So that's at least one set i can probably skip. 

     

    They haven't said the Elf Bath is still coming, but his comments keep heavily implying that it will.

  11. Got my minis today. I know @Gadgetman! got his as well. There was a complaint about the packaging and some damaged minis. Mine arrived in one piece (or rather without damage for the multi-part ones) but I agree that the packaging was not great. 

     

    The minis are gorgeous. I will post some pics later. I will back more projects from this creator.

     

    edit: here are 2 minis I picked at random. I like that the female is one piece.

    These look interesting!  Not sure the budget is there, but I'll keep an eye out.  I like that if you go for the 75mm figure they give you the 32mm one as well.

     

    Yeah, I had an Idea for making a pathfinder character based around enlarge person shenanigans. But...its about $50 for 1 x 75mm and the 1 32mm mini.... Plus about $20 shipping. $70 seems a bit much for that... I am not sure now.

     Morana, 75 mm

    Morana was once a champion of the sacred order of the Radiant Fist. During a mission, the dark wizard Shahrivar cast a curse over her and traped her soul in a gem. Since then his body has become the wizard´s tool, bringing death and disease wherever she goes.

     Akanksha, 75 mm

    Heiress to the throne of Shin Kingdom was always known for her diplomatic skills and her sword mastery. In one of her many diplomatic meetings, she received as a gift a pendant in the shape of a heart and, since then, there has been no desire which have refused or a lover that have rejected. It must be said that the tensions between the neighbouring kingdoms are more relaxed than ever.

     Najwa, 75 mm

     At another time, Najwa was the high priestess in the Sharated Temple. The Great Tremorrevealed an ancient buried room in the depths of the temple that contained writings from a thousand years ago. She was the first to study them and learned dark and forbidden knowledge which poisoned her body and soul. The high wizard Lucianus tried to save her but it was too late, she destroyed the temple and was lost in the night.

    Here you can see a comparative image of the projected height for the miniatures in both versions. Has you can see, the 75 mm scale will offer an excellent miniature for your shelf and the 32 mm scale will fit in any boardgame and wargames that you can imagine.

     
     

    In adition, some parts have been changed from the 75 mm scale to the 32 mm scale to avoid too small details and give the best painting experience.

    Here you can see the reward levels offered in this campaign. You can find the full information about every offer in the reward list of the campaign and, if you have any doubt, don´t hesitate to ask.

    Here you can see the stretch goals that are planned for this campaign and they correspond to new extra characters that will be fully revealed during the campaign. When we reach the corresponding objective, their miniatures in both versions will be added to the available Add-Ons.  All those who opt for the Fallen Maidens reward may access to a special offer of these characters.

    Although only tree Strech goals are scheduled, I would add new characters in case the campaign reached higher goals. If this happens I will consider your suggestions to create new characters that captivate you.

    5fc2aff69ae46863e7437e902a0d538e_origina

    The add-ons are additional items you may be interested in adding to the rewards that correspond to your pledge level. To include an add-on, simply add its specified value in € to the amount of your pledge.

    When the campaign ends you will receive the backer survey where you will be able to specify which add-ons you want to include.

     Here you will find the available fantasy football products. If you missed the Asgard´s Sons campaign, this is your chance to get them and obtain exclusive characters.

    All shipping will be delivered by ordinary postal mail. How is it possible that there is a great disparity in the size of the packages, the shipping costs will be calculated according to each order to be fair. When the campaign ends and once the survey is done, the backers will be contacted to collect the shipping costs through Paypal just before sending each order. We can not ship to PO Boxes.

    If you come to Pamplona to pick up your order you will save these expenses and we can also meet in person!

    So you can get an idea of how much these costs will be, here you have a list of the estimated value of the shipments.

    b4f6ed89faa8421ccd7f2f3323a044ce_origina

    I will do my best to keep these cost to the minimum possible. The shipping is planned to begin in March 2020. However, depending on the production requirements, it might change. 

    For those who opt for the Add-Ons level, it is possible that they receive their rewards sooner, It will depend if I have already available what they want to purchase or it must be manufactured.

    Further information will be posted on the updates of this project. 

    febe4f8e6646d8d43804db51b8ba47e0_origina

    The master model of every miniature will be printed by 3DA Impresiones, a company that specializes in prototype.

    e880c257ec2eebcb157bba2b1c964a32_origina

    The resin miniatures will be manufactured by GRX Creations known by his high quality.

    Risks and challenges

    All designs are not a final product and can suffer changes during the manufacturing process. 
    Due to production requirements, the planned date to begin the shipping process might be changed due to the amount of the pieces needed and other factors out of my control. However, I will keep you updated on any changes.

    If you do not accept the terms of the campaign, please do not pledge on this project but instead wait for the general release.

    ...Additionally, I'm seriously thinking about the Exclusive Lord, Undead Lord, Battle Standard, MDF Monuments, and maybe the MDF die tower. 

     

    Edit: Difficult part is I know I want to put something like $4-500 USD more into BattleTech.. 

     

    Well, the good news is that the majority of the stuff will be available at retail. So Its not like you need to get everything all at once. I am hoping to be able to put more in at the pledge manager stage. I can't really get the Raiders or halflings right now...
