  1. So as feared, Bones 2 and Stonehaven elves in October... Anyone want to help me rob a bank?
  2. From the latest update!!! "Be prepared. The elves are approaching. We have a few things to touch up, but we expect the elves KS to launch in early October."
  3. Whooohooo! now I got to sweet talk the wife for some extra cash....
  4. I backed Wrath of Kings... All the models came with bases. The add on was for base inserts not bases. So the bases have a hollowed out area and the plastic inserts fit in them.,.. So there was no actual extra bases for sale...
  5. I hope there is an option to purchase bases. It would be nice to be able to get everything in one KS... I dont think including bases is cost efficient, but having them as an optional purchase would be nice... Your choice of round or square (round for me). 20mm for small, 25mm, 30mm, 40mm... I do not if they could offer all the ranges... but 20mm and either 25mm or 30mm would be great... I usually base my human size guys on 25mm and heroes or important NPC's on 30mm...
  6. I checked today and they don't even have the old ticketing system that I used anymore. Probably because it sucked. @smokestack FRPGames does have stocking issues. Your problem comes not on their end but how long it takes them to get stuff back in stock. What Cash mentioned is they're shopping cart system doesn't remove things from stock if in a cart so two people can buy the last item but the first one to complete the order is the one that gets it. No, actually it was a stocking issue. The Product was marked as in stock. I sent my order... And then got an e-mail saying part of my order had shipped and that the Celts were actually out of stock (despite being marked as instock) and would ship as soon as they were back in stock. Thats when I e-mailed and was told about 4 weeks...
  7. Bob, I agree, But 2 successful KS campaigns I was in, Zombicide 2 and Raging heroes... both had low funding levels that were met almost as soon as the KS started... They we flew past the funding, then way past... The an update from the creator saying they would post stretch goals soon (starting at the current total, not from when funding was met... ). So funding was $50,000 we are at $200,000 and we are just now talking about stretch goals moving forward. No retro goals for all the money raised past $50,000? I don't think that would happen here, but a higher base funding on something almost guaranteed to fund would help prevent that.
  8. Funny you should say that, I actually have an issue I'm trying to resolve with them. Last time I ordered, I noticed there was only one item left of the Studio McVey 'Morgana' mini, so I added it (I had been eyeing that one for a while, I think it's a really cool mini). Anyway, order went through, and I eventually got confirmation and shipping notification emails (took about a week though). When the package got here, just the other day, no Morgana though, and the included packing slip said I'd been refunded for that item. I haven't seen any refunding on my end, so I emailed them but haven't heard back. These are the first time I've ordered from CMoN, but you guys have had good experiences with them then? I had a similar issue last year with FRP games with a box of Warlord games Celts... They didn't automatically refund me, they told me they had to wait to get it back in stock which could be 4 weeks... I asked if I could substitute a different item ( a pathfinder rpg book) which was a little more expensive... They said yes, and just sent me a bill for the balance... Overall not a bad experience... though I did want those celts... Just realized you were talking about CMoN shop not FRP games like The first part of CashWiley's post. I have never had a problem through CMOn, and I have ordered from them about 4 times...
  9. This is a great idea... This prevents the immediate rush of $1,000,000 when the goal was $50,000 and no stretches between the $50k and $1M. I just sold a bunch of old RPGs for this kickstarter... Cant wait...
  10. Wargames factory is pretty good. Especially when you factor in price. I have at least one of all their set except the world war 2 stuff and the new female survivors... The new stuff is better. I also got a set of the dreamforge troops. They are better still. I wish they would do more fantasy stuff... Or at least more historical ancient stuff. The female marines from the Defiance kickstarter sound interesting but 14 girls for $28 retail seems a bit expensive. Especially when you factor in the quality of what they have produced so far...
  11. The Aztec/Mayan stuff is really cool. I wish there was more of this theme available. I would run an Apacolypto type game...
  12. Its a similar theme. The minis may not look the same, but the subject is not unique... The Shadow Sea ones do look better .
  13. CashWiley that would be ok if there was no mention of stretch goals or future unlocks. If the kickstarter was like the second Bombshel Babes KS that said, this is to fund this one mini, or this 1 diorama, etc and there will not be any stretch goals then that would be ok. But he has a couple pictures on teh front marked as stretch goals. No mention of how you get them, how much they will cost,. Nothing that looks like a mini associated with it, just a picture. What sizes will they be available in? the Main one was in 2 sizes, will these be? The free resin base is nice... but what will it look like? Is it just for the diorama model, or the girl, or both? I think teh worst thing you can do in a KS is not communicate enough... I think most people when spending money for something months in advance want to see/know what they are getting...
  14. Thanks. At least that is one expense I have a little time to save for.
  15. So are these Part of the first kickstarter (October) or the second (Q1 2014)... I like the look of them, and will probably use them for a fantsay race in my table top game...
  16. I pledged but just cancelled. No updates in 4 days, then an update saying he will update this weekend (4 more days). Project has 19 days left out of 30... I dont know if he realizes how short of time that is... Anyway as far as porn PDF's I did not request one so not sire what is on it....
  17. Jo, any word as to when the KS will start? Next week, 2 weeks? Etc?
  18. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/coolminiornot/wrath-of-kings/posts New stretch goals $275k- 6 additional troop miniature and 1 additional leader to all faction boxes. $300k- 1 additional specialist to all faction boxes. That puts ancient king at 199 minis for $200
  19. I agree with Prophetic_joe... big armies... I would love to have a who Khamsin army... And could use it in RPGs liek Dark sun, or Alqadin... or as a Warhammer army... Please give me some khamsin...
  20. I would like some soldier types that I could use mulitiples of... Like http://www.reapermin.../sku-down/14581 Oakhearth Warden Or a whole army with related figs...

  22. I am super excited about this.. Now I will have to look for gaming stuff around the house to sell... I hope they do some generic soldiers and mounted troops... Things I could use multiples of... So, Backing Wrath of kings is gonna kill my budget for the year...and I still want Bones 2, and Stonehaven 2.... And Confrontation, and ..... gah.!!!!
  23. New stretch just posted Stretch on towards 200! Update #5 · Aug 15, 2013 · 1 comment As we get closer to unlocking the last infantry variant, by popular request here are the next two stretches! We've got a great looking dice bag for Wrath of Kings which we want to give you! It's a neat piece of swag which you'll find handy for your games. If (when?) we hit this stretch each Faction Starter will get 1 additional leader model. Useful for commanding all those extra infantry you got for free!
  24. For those interested. The last three stretch goals are for alternate scuplts. We are closing in on the $150k one... The $75,000 stretch goal added 6 additional models to 3 of the factions and 3 additional models to the other 2 factions (larger infantry). So the get all pledeg was boosted by 24 models... One of the backers posted this break down of what you you are getting so far. Ian Hunter about 3 hours ago ... it should be noted that if you take one of each starter for Ancient King you end up with 157 models for $200 ($190 if you got the EB) and a rule book. Shael Han (total 27 models) - 9x The Wrath (this includes the three from the 75k stretch goal) - 12x Dragon Legionnair - 2x Big Sister - 2x Dragon Legion Keeper - 1x Hammer of Heaven - 1x Shield of Taelfon Nasier (total 36 models) - 18x Ashmen (this includes the six from the 75k stretch goal) - 12x Pelegarth - 2x Ashmen Hakar - 2x Pelagarth Howl - 1x Rathor - 1x Longhorn Teknes (total 36 modles) - 18x Union Workers (this includes the six from the 75k stretch goal) - 12x Defender Lineman - 2x Union Boss - 2x Defender Lineman Controller - 1x Galvanic Defender - 1x Zallak Goritsi (total 27 models) - 9x Skorza Skirmisher (this includes the three from the 75k stretch goal) - 12x Blood Dancer - 2x Skorza Alpha - 2x Dance Master - 1x Scourge Hound - 1x Sheildbreaker Hadross (total models 30) - 6x Sevridan Gutters - 18x Deepman Spearmen (this includes the six from the 75k stretch goal) - 2x Gutter Friar - 2x Deepman Kaxes - 1x Deep Caller - 1x Calith Reaver Irene von Goritsi – 1 Total for Ancient King: 157
