  1. I like their production values very much, but this is expensive: 129 us plus 37 us for Canadian shipping. This is about 235 Canadian for the base pledge. They are making it too easy to pass on this. I wish them the best since they have always been a fun company to back, but no.
  2. This just showed up and is currently detoxing in isolation for a few days. A heavy duty box.
  3. Truly a baffling and disorganized project from a company with an established track record. A real head-scratcher this one. I couldn't make heads or tails of it after several attempts to decipher the page. Were they trying to fail? EDIT: Although that last update is pretty good and makes up for the weird project, to some degree.
  4. Thank you Dilvish! Sounds like I have some paint travelling adventures in my future.
  5. First of all, a robust ho ho ho to you all. So ... I spend a fair amount of time travelling from North America to New Zealand and have often wanted to bring some paints and miniatures with me. But roughly 24 hours of travel in the belly of a plane sounds like a bad thing to do to all my Reaper paint. Based on past experiences, it seems like weird things happen down there in the dark. Stuff comes out ... different. My favorite is that bags of coffee beans get conveniently vacuum freeze-dried. So I figure I better not. Am I being too cautious? Any international travellers with positive experiences and tips? Or should I just buy Vallejo and Army Painter paints from Mighty Ape instead? Your thoughts are much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  6. Received this last week and played the first scenario a couple of times this weekend. Overall a very pleasant surprise: A) The miniatures are amazing. Better than I expected. In fact the whole visual presentation is really eye-catching and impressive. B) The game is both really easy to learn and very fun to play (so far). I didn't know what to expect and like it a lot. The sanity loss theme is highly engaging. I am glad I went all-in (except for Big Boy Cthulhu, which I am happy I skipped).
  7. Well, in the end, I consider myself lucky. I finally received almost everything I ordered, barring one item. I have just been informed that said item is no longer in stock because they were "shorted by the manufacturer." I have received a paypal refund, minus paypal's gouge. Sadly, I can't bring myself to back any more of their projects. Fulfillment on this project for those less fortunate than myself seems to be never-ending. Is anyone else on this forum still waiting for anything?
  8. After Mantic lit a fire under Snakes and Lattes butts, Canadians (me anyway) have got their wave two.
  9. I grabbed a Black Friday Lantern from KD 1.5 on January 7th, the last day of the campaign. They were limited but not timed.
  10. I meant the "ivory" renders (whatever those are supposed to be) don't do them justice. There are some grey (resins?) photos on BGG that show what the sculpts for a few actually look like. Pretty nice. There was somebody criticizing how "flat" many of the minis look -- single piece minis with arms spread out for easy manufacturing. And the ivory renders flatten them out further. Apparently Bloodborne shipping caught some people by surprise so they are more cautious now. Makes sense to me.
  11. Ankh was announced last weekend. Ivory effect for minis makes them look shallower than they actually are. Kind of ugly actually. Backers who dropped their EBs aren't going to come back for full price. So numbers are continuing to drop. Funding is from add-ons. The big announcement was: we promise you a stretch goal a day for the next week (small promise really). And if you buy this 45 dollar add-on you might also get some other stretch goals. Possible pledge troll activity isn't encouraging since the total dropped 1100 in the last hour, unfunding the Jordirum stretch goal (at least for a bit -- seems to be going back up as I write.) PS. drawing chits out of bags and reading cards are the two things I like least in board games. Personal opinion.
  12. This is noteworthy. I don't think I've seen a Cmon project lose funding like this before. And they are offering radio silence in response. It's the kind of huge drop usually seen when projects are suspected of being scams or some other extreme concern.
