  1. Yeah, I have to admit I was a little conflicted when I heard that they were moving production stateside. I'm all for made-in-the-usa, but half the reason I supported the Bones KS was in hopes of making more sculpts available for the LE line. Though I suppose it's still possible to ship the molds to China for LE production and have them returned for more Bones production in the US. It might even be that the figs would be sculpted here and shipped to China for painting. Or maybe they could be painted in the US without too much of a price hike. Wishful thinking? Yep, it's the best kind. :-)
  2. Now that the Bones are (mostly) delievered, I was wondering if there's any news to be had about the future of the LE line. I'm hoping for a new Kickstarter to get all the Bones into the LE line, but almost any news would be good news.
  3. I'm with you, DarkUncleBoh. A Legendary Encounters Kickstarter would be fantastic (assuming it's at least a few months away, so I can recover from the Dwarven Forge KS. My wallet's a-hurtin'.)
  4. The first stretch goal was posted as an update yesterday (a jungle-themed mercenaries set!). The post helps explain the credit system as well: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1941357427/dungeon-crawler-minis-tidal-wave-dcm/posts Basicaly, it boils down to one credit per set, with bigger sets (like the first one) counting as two credits. So, if they meet the first stretch goal, and you have 12 credits, you can buy 12 of the Mercenaries set, 6 of the Tidal Wave set, or some combination of both. Alternate paint jobs are getting thrown in for free, and how many of those you get depends
  5. They just previewed the first set of stretch goals. A four-figure mercenary set. The Amazon Warrior looks really slick: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1941357427/dungeon-crawler-minis-tidal-wave-dcm/posts
  6. On Auggie's site, they're about $3 for the prepaints and $1.30 for the unpainted: http://www.auggiesgamesonline.com/Dungeon-Crawler_c_321.html http://www.auggiesgamesonline.com/Dungeon-Crawler_c_253.html I couldn't say for sure, but I imagine the Kickstarter prices would be the same or (hopefully) a little less.
  7. I know. The way they worded things is a little cumbersome. Over on another forum, he's been clarifying things a bit. Basically, pledging gets you some or all of the new set (either painted or unpainted depending on the reward you choose.) Some reward levels give you credits that you can use toward other sets that will be revealed as stretch goals. Each set will be one or two credits, depending on how big of a set it is. They're also adding sets of alternate paint miniatures to various pledge levels as rewards as the KS goes on. Hopefully it will become more clear as the KS progresses. I'll
  8. Hi all, I just wanted to let everybody know about a new minis Kickstarter that just launched yesterday: http://www.kickstart...-tidal-wave-dcm For the initial goal, they're doing a pirate/water themed set that includes some male and female human pirates, a mermaid and a huge water elemental. They're being produced in both prepainted and unpainted versions, so there's a lot of flexibility. They have stretch goals planned as well, but haven't said what they are. I have their earlier sets, so I can vouch for the quality of the work they do. Judging by the icons they're using for s
  9. The restocks are awesome news, as are the new releases. I'd just hate to see the line suffer because of a perceived lack of support or interest on the part of Reaper. I know there's only so much you can say about a release of 4-5 figures, but there are lots of other things you can do to generate excitement. For example, since each reorder gets a new paint job, each paint job is effectively a limited edition. That's a pretty big selling point that hasn't really been highlighted. I remember reading a while back that there were something like 100 sculpts that were selected to be part of the
  10. I've been a fan of Reaper Miniatures for a long time. When I got back into gaming about ten years ago, one of the first things I did was purchase a ton of Reaper minis, because I wanted figures for my game, and Reaper had the best sculpts out there. Almost all of them are still sitting, unpainted, in boxes in my basement. I love them, but I just don't have the time or the talent (mostly the time) to paint. So, when WOTC came out with the D&D miniatures line, I jumped on board. I put up with the random packaging, the less-detailed sculpts, and the sometimes (often) disappointing pai
