  1. I'm pretty interested in this one. Unique art style
  2. The next one is going to be all new adventure Mode content. The new minis from the BtM campaign, some new minis that weren't in the last one (they just showed some ghouls on their fb page), the temple map (and possibly another map), and the tome of skelos. There will be limited Barbarian and King level pledges from the first campaign, and they might have some remaining stock of the smaller add-ons in the pm.
  3. It wasn't for MBP, it was for this campaign. If you read his statement, because BtM was risky, and his project, he took out a loan on his house so that if it didn't work, Monolith wouldn't suffer. It went live on Monday, so up for two days (I know, that's nitpicky), but the preview was also up for two weeks before that. There were more pledges for legacy content than there were for BtM content, and the whole point of the campaign was to launch BtM. Essentially what he did was set his pride aside to listen to what the backers were saying which was basically two things: 1.
  4. It won't work that way. They'll probably release what they are calling a "second life kit" for Mythic Battles (Pantheon and/or Ragnarok), but that would essentially be all the non-miniature components you would need (activation tiles, scenarios, etc...) to use your Mythic Battles minis with the new VS system.
  5. The first wave of Tainted Grail started shipping a week or two ago.
  6. They've said that the Mystery Chest (the box of enemy minis) will be available as an add-on in the pledge manager, but I'm not sure if you need to have a base pledge to get it or if you can pledge $1 and do so.
  7. The finally cancelled the campaign yesterday.
  8. I think price is one thing. It's not the plastic fest that you get from a lot of other campaigns. While it's not quite the value of other games, I don't think the base game itself is too overpriced (it is a little, though). The trees add-on seems to be, though. I'm not sure why two more trees would cost that much. The War game at least had a BoW playthrough video, so I wouldn't say there's no substance behind it, but they need to have a workable version of the rulebook if/when they relaunch. The Origins game, on the other hand, was concerning a lot of people because of the lack of informa
  9. Even more on the discord channel (I don't have the link on hand). They've asked that those be kept on that channel, though, as it's not an "official" release. They have said that the all-n (for Season 2 only) will be $300, but that there will be a fair amount of alt-sculpts and minor characters that you might not feel you need.
  10. I was an all in and I got my notice last night. I believe I saw someone in the comments (or maybe on Discord) say they had only ordered a couple of Dragons, and had gotten their notice.
  11. They've said today that they plan on lowering the price of the reforestation box. I'm not sure how that's going to work since it would affect the all in price and you can't change a pledge tier once it has backers in it. They have been pretty responsive to questions and concerns however. Here's what they said about the first campaign; "WYSIWYGames launched a KS over last the year to help a game already made to be funded to produce other chapters for this boardgame but the KS had been finaly canceled because the offer didn't match a KS campain. This boardgame had been well sold thro
  12. Yeah, they added the Backer's Choice pledge after people asked for it. Not sure if they messed up the price, or what, but it does come out to cheaper if you do it that way.
  13. There are actually two different solo modes. They also just unlocked all the components for a 1v mode.
  14. Regarding the scale, hopefully they will have pictures soon, but during today's KS live, Leo showed comparisons with Conan, Mythic Battles, Warhammer, and I think some more, but I missed a bit of it, and it's basicallty in scale with all of those.
  15. One thing that they've said about the game play videos is that you have to liken this more to something like a role playing game. Watching videos of people playing D&D can be a downright snoozefest, whereas playing the game yourself is obviously much more engaging. It's been a really odd campaign. They're still gaining backers, but so many people seem to have jumped on that early bird "just because" and are now leaving that it's grinding to a standstill. Hopefully they can get it moving forward again.
  16. I'm also in the U.S. and had minimal problems with shipping. I got everything on time except for the RPG book, which Funagain said the post office lost. I also had one mini that was bent to an extreme that I was uncomfortable trying the hot water treatment with, and my core box was split at a cormer. I sent an e-mail to Funagain, and in about three weeks I had replacements for all three. Gameplay wise I love it. There's so many different mechanics that play into effect, from the draft to the dice to card management. I haven't tried the scenarios yet, but skirmish is loads of fun, a
  17. Mine was FedEx in WI. Got it last Thursday.
  18. Thinking about backing this to replace some of the Mythic Battles minis I'm not overly fond of (Heracles). These look great, but at the price point I'm not sure. Not that they're not worth what they're asking, just for my needs it might not be worth it.
  19. People are already reporting getting tracking numbers in the KS comments. I'm assuming these are just core pledges. Now is when being patient becomes incredibly hard.
  20. From everything they've been saying, MB:Pantheon is still on track to ship on time, barring things that are out of their control (Customs, etc...). I'm willing to bet that it was either launch this now, or with the holidays they would probably have to wait until next year. Given that we've pretty much seen production samples for almost everything from MB, and I do believe Quirkworthy has stated that things are on boats, I'm not too worried about them launching this one, except where my wallet is concerned.
  21. Oh man am I glad to read this. I was concerned with this and Village Attacks happening at the same time, and the PM for Vampire Hunters launching soon, that I'd be in big trouble.
  22. Not sure where you're getting the bolded information from. They've repeatedly stated the opposite, that they are very much planning on having organized play. How much not having the game in normal retail outlets will affect this might be a point for discussion, but I've never seen them say anywhere that there will not be OP. They've also said that the retail availability through their store will be mostly affected by the popularity of the items, so it's not necessarily that they will only have an amount of copies equal to the amount needed to fulfill KS orders, sell the rest, and then never be
  23. They've added 28mm as a pledge level. Unfortunately, having gone all in on MB, and saving up for Rising Sun, these are still a bit expensive for me. A shame, because they look great.
  24. Mine was one of the last to ship, so I won't see it until probably mid-January. Then I have to wait for wave 2 to get my Epics. Really looking forward to finally getting it!
  25. Anytime! I'm just glad I found the quote from Clark because I'm pretty sure I wasn't being very clear. In other news... Dun dun duuuun! Actually, I think your reply was more helpful to me than his.
