  1. Statuesque Miniatures Ok. We're all set. The Kickstarter launches on Tuesday! It's not a massively long campaign, so tell everyone! Your friends, your family, even your enemies - maybe they just need tiny metal toys in their lives and will forever more be much better people! You'll be able to grab the full set of miniatures or choose from smaller sets in any combination. There will also be a very limited number of hand-finished (by me) sets just like the miniatures in the photos. The perfect labour-free gift for yourself or someone you love. Awwww.

    they're generally very good in terms of fidelity/detail, so if you're happy converting from metal, go for it
  3. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/steamforged/devil-may-crytm-the-bloody-palace now live Automatically Appended Next Post: About Based on the Bloody Palace mode from the critically acclaimed Devil May Cry™ 5 video game, Devil May Cry™: The Bloody Palace is a dynamic and fast-paced board game for 2 to 4 players where style counts for everything. Players each take control of an iconic Devil May Cry™ devil hunter and try to outscore each other by building the most impressive attack combos and achieving the highest style rank. Automatically Appended Next Post: Unfortunately, we are unable to ship pledge rewards to the following countries: Afghanistan, Argentina, Belarus, Bolivia, Brazil, Burma, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ecuador, Egypt, Eritrea, Falkland Islands, French Guiana, French Polynesia, Republic of Guinea, Republic of Guinea-Bissau, Gyana, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Syria, Libya, Mali, Martinique, Mexico, New Caledonia, North Korea, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico, Reunion Island, Somalia, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, South Sudan, Sudan, Suriname, Syria, The Republic of Maldives, Ukraine, Uruguay, Venezuela, Yemen and Zimbabwe. If your territory is listed above we hope to be able to offer this product to you at retail but are unable to commit to shipping to these territories during the Kickstarter. Whilst we will strive to deliver your rewards in a timely manner, you may not receive your reward before the product is available for purchase at retail, or other promotional opportunities such as conventions. We have ensured that the pledge reward offered is packed with fantastic value and Kickstarter exclusives to compensate for any potential delays. However, if this unacceptable to you, please do not back this project and instead wait for the retail release. Thank you for your understanding. Any pledges confirmed after our pledge manager deadline will be shipped from the UK hub at a later date and will likely incur increased shipping costs. Note: they've got several open project, but have also just got £5million in extra investment funding so while timeliness of delivery may be an issue, worries about whether their ongoing projects can be afforded are probably no longer an issue

    Good catch on that Smokestack, I've removed her

    Confrontation: Classic

    after a long silence (and plenty of ignoring Chaosium, Peterson games etc) it looks like somebody at San Detour is back at work since we have an update Updated information -- Les Informations de reprise Posted by Joss (Collaborator) Hello everyone, For the past six months, the agenda and activity of Éditions Sans-détour have greatly changed. All of our energy has gone into the transition we’re currently undergoing and we’ve had to make important changes in order to continue operating, all while continuing to work on the Confrontation Classic project. We have to admit that we haven’t given enough of our time to this massive project, whether for project leadership or, more importantly, for communication. We’d like to sincerely apologize to the community. We’re taking back the management of this project firmly in hand, as it should be, with the goal of keeping you informed on a regular basis. 1- Let’s start with the resin Collector’s Choice models. As we’ve already announced, De Tinnen Roos is Sans-Détour’s partner for the production of the Collector’s Choice resin models for Confrontation Classic. Since Hysterical Games closed down, we chose this production company for their good reputation. Thanks to them, we’re resuming the production of the Collector’s Choice. We have the pleasure of revealing the first control castings made by DTR for the resin models of the Kickstarter which have also allowed us to check the quality and rework some parts as needed. These first castings were made using a blue resin, but let’s reassure indigophobes right away, regular production will be made in a more traditional magnificent gray. [image removed due to bare breasts] The schedule is as follows for these resins: • May 13th to the 20th: production of the resin models, as agreed with De Tinnen Roos. • Around May 25th: reception of the models at our warehouse. • Starting on May 27th: beginning of the packaging for shipping. • Starting on May 31st: Beginning of the shipping of resin models to the backers who have decided to receive them separately, or who have only these resin models in their pledge. Some of the Skull Warriors have gotten some touch-ups and will be delivered to us with a few days of delays. As for the Mid-Nor Hydra and the Cynwall Wyrm models, the size of some of the parts means slightly longer detail work so that these are of the best possible quality (example: the wings of the Wyrm) Our team will visit the De Tinnen Roos workshop in the last week of May in order to check the process for these parts and validate the quality of the casts. Shipping for these models will thus be pushed back 2 or 3 weeks. We’ll let you know the expected delays once we’ve met with the De Tinnen Roos team. Their team has also passed along a technical detail we’d like to share with you: At the beginning of the year, they’ve chosen to use a less fragile resin than the one they used to use. This upgrade has required a few technical changes and a bit of time to adjust to working with it. But in the end, the DTR team is up to date and able to produce quality models with a less brittle material! 2- Confrontation Classic We’ll be strengthening the project team and dedicating additional human resources to management and communication. We’re re-examining multiple fabrication and delivery solutions. We’ll give you more complete information and a tentative schedule as soon as they are greenlit on our side. 3- Others Projects As you know, the return of Confrontation is accompanied by the development of Confrontation Resurrection and other projects, such as the roleplaying game. We’ll also have new news we’ll be communicating with you on a regular basis about those. Once again, we’re deeply sorry for the radio silence and we’ll do what’s needed to broadcast information in this space on a regular basis. Sans-Détour

    Planet of the Apes The miniatures Boardgame

    I wonder if they paid (or had) somebody with a better grasp of English to put together the KS page, but once the KS began they didn't have access to them (in a timely manner) any more?

    How do you feel about multiple projects being open by the same creator

    I don't hate it, especially where you've got a long wait for sub contactors do stuff (eg make, pack and ship a boardgame) as there's not a lot game designers/sculptors/artists can do while they wait but you have to have convinced me your on top of the existing project with good coms and regular updates or I wont believe you can manage your contactors I wouldn't want to back a second project from a sculptor who hadn't finished sculpting a previous project, or a game designer who was still fiddling with the earlier game game but overall it is a gamble, and if you throw more money in the pot you've got more at risk. As always with KS, never spend more that your prepared to loose (let alone more than you can afford to loose), never spend all of your fun money..... not being able to do real shopping too sucks and if you feel jittery about the first project don't back the second as your just not going to have fun, and the wait will be painful even if it eventually delivers

    How Many Books is a Lot?

    Hmmmm, probably about 5000 in paper, (and about 3000 in electronic only, although a lot of them don't count as I only grabbed them as they were free), bulging shelves everywhere (most with at least 2 layers on), a wardrobe that now has boxes of books inside, a big stack in the lounge about the size of an armchair base I use as a side table, I'm pretty much at capacity but it hurts to contemplate getting rid of any of them. The one real frustration I have with ebooks is it's so much harder to re-read stuff, with real books I could quickly scan across the shelves until memory caught on a title or author, something i remembered that fitted my mood, scanning through an ebook library is so much harder, and what you see doesn't provide the memory cues a book of a certain size, spine design, cover, etc does.

    I wonder if it's got something to do with state sales tax collection, if they've got an official presence in Rhode Island and 'sell' there, and KS have recently been adjudged to be sales for these purposes, they will need to do a whole bucket load of paperwork, collect taxes etc (https://www.taxjar.com/states/rhode-island-sales-tax-online/undefined#how-to-collect-sales-tax-in-rhode-island ) So rather than do it (especially at short notice) it could have been simpler to go No shipping to RI Edit: but I can't find any info to back it up so I may well be wrong

    Bloodborne : 24 hour EB

    Typically IF expansions make it to retail they'll be cheaper than KS with CMON project but it's a gamble as if not enough people bit during the KS they may decide not to go to retail with it at all (especially if you're outside the US where even if they do go to retail you may not be able to get hold of them)

    Cats & Catacombs

    Hey Folks! We’re into the final days of the campaign and at over 1000x funded we’re, quite simply, gobsmacked at the support you’ve shown! Every retweet, share, comment and like has meant the world to me and the team. Kate has been hard at work putting the finishing touches on the kittie’s backstories and thought it would be nice to give them to you to get your creative juices flowing. If you’ve got any ideas for your cat’s backstory then put them in the comment section and we’ll have a read through! Right, enough from me. Hope you enjoy the story! Russ The room was full of books, spilling out of the bookshelves onto the simple wooden tables and chairs, even in one or two cases onto the tiled floor. It lent the room an air of chaos, but looking more closely, it was clear that each of these books related to the others in the stacks or shelves, and each and every one of them was spotlessly clean, free of dust, and, aside from a little wear and tear on the older tomes, pristine. Hesta could have put her claw onto any book she wished to in an instant. She knew the location of each and every one of her treasured volumes, every spell component, the levels of ink in each well, and exactly how many quills she had, and in what state of sharpness each of them was. It was irritating therefore, that Maven kept stealing things. The raven stood before her now, in a huff, the offending item lying accusingly between them. The bird shifted slightly in what passed for the Corvid version of guilt. “Look at me, Maven.” Hesta tried again. The bird met her gaze for just an instant, then looked away again. It’s clawed foot moved ever so slightly towards the coin, then curled and moved away again. “I know you like it, Dearest, but it’s an important part of the spell, and I need it.” Hesta reached out with an ethereal hand, picked up the coin, and inspected it once again, ensuring that it was not scratched or dented after its adventure in the raven’s secret stash. The ritual spell, which was to be enacted that evening, would use the coin to ascertain the whereabouts of the evil Goblin King’s Castle. The adventuring party of which she was an occasional member had tracked his minions to a cave and had liberated this coin, one of the Goblin King’s prize possessions, from their corpses. “Once we’ve done the spell and the Goblin King is dead and burned, you can have it forever.” Hesta offered, her soft heart breaking for the raven’s obvious distress. She reached out her paw, and with one claw extended, scritched the raven exactly where he liked it the most, just at the back of his head. His claws uncurled, and his shoulders unhunched. He began purring in pleasure, the coin temporarily forgotten. That evening, after hours of battle, an elven cleric, a dwarven fighter, a genasi rogue with fires dampened, two human rangers, and Hesta, stood over the vanquished form of the Goblin king, his minions either dead or fleeing. Hesta leaned on her staff, breathing heavily. She was out of spells, the last of her slots being spent on the decisive blast of a lightning bolt. But the Goblin King was dead, and although his goblin hordes would take some clearing out of their hideaways in the hills and caves of the surrounding valley, the core of the threat was gone. “Hesta!” the Genasi rogue called, “Look what I’ve found for Maven!” He poked his head out of the side room they’d missed in the heat of the battle with a grin. Hesta limped over - she hadn’t quite managed to skip out of the way of a barbed goblin arrow - and looked. The Pile of treasure was enough to astound even her. She marvelled at the amount of gold coins - no-one would miss one or two, and they would look splendid in Maven’s secret stash.

    Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught Three

    Hopefully it's a glitch and therefore 'easy' to resolve (since they've got the stock), rather than the shipper loosing a whole bunch of stock and making excuses about why they 'can't' send it out rather than admit it's gone
