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

    Solomon Kane Board Game (Mythic Games)

    I'm getting it as well, it's going to be something different gameplay wise (still not 100% whether this is going to be a good or a bad thing), and for mini representation of so much of the stories
  3. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/554542735/space-raiders-the-space-goblins?ref=creator_nav&fbclid=IwAR2h-8VsOTVqQQ_gMAqIGt7JgDvMDxwHvFgWQzDCAKXjyUCuYXr2m1TbpFY Space Riders "The Space Goblins!" This is the 4th chapter in the Space Raiders range. Bringing miniatures with the classic late 80's and early 90's oldschool look and cast in metal (except for those especified). This time focusing on the Space Goblins and the Mind Controllers. They will the perfect reinforcements for your classic armies or maybe you'll start right from here! You can see more pics of all of them at my Facebook group, Space Raiders:https://www.facebook.com/groups/775315502580794/ The new Goblins and orc arms are sculpted by the goblin master himself KEVIN ADAMS, while the Mind controller is no other than Bob Olley! Two true oldhammer legends!

    What are required "Japanese Anime" Movies

    The Ancient Magus Bride is good and has a pretty interesting world too from the glimpses we get of it via the story Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex & Ghost in the Shell: S.A.C. 2nd GIG are good 'alternate universe' interpretation of the movie if you like the Major, Batu, etc, plus it's got Tachikomas in Black Lagoon is excellent (I think it's been mentioned already)
  5. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806316071/batman-gotham-city-chronicles-season-2 (Note: this is a follow up to the recently delivered Batman Gotham City Chronicles which is based on their Conan game engine, and lets you pick up the existing content if you didn't get it before, plus the new season 2 content) Batman™: Gotham City Chronicles is a mission-based miniatures board game where 2 to 4 players control the Dark Knight and his allies in their never-ending battle against crime through an asymmetrical and open game system. Each game involves an action-packed fight where two sides face off. One of the players assumes the role of the Villain and controls the most notorious criminals of Gotham City. The remaining players take control of the Heroes, who must work together as a team to foil the Villain’s plots. Each side takes turns, pitting their strategies against each other in order to achieve their objectives. [NOTE the core box image above is taken from the first KS so the 'stretch' tags are irrelevant, I've done so as the current KS doesn't show the contents as fully] Batman™: Gotham City Chronicles Season 2’s primary focus is Versus mode. Adventure mode racked up 42 missions in season 1, is still supported with 9 NEW missions in season 2. And, some of the new season 2 characters can also be used in S1 core box adventure mode missions. Finally, all season 2 characters come with their own tile, opening up a wider Versus mode selection pool for the 10 NEW versus mode missions.

    Confrontation: Classic

    The could cheap out and do party moulds (instead of say 20 copies of an archer for example, put 20 different minis in there), these are less desirable as it's tricky to sell individual items from later as your often left with a build up of the less popular figures from the mould (you can remelt them but as casters charge per spin if say 1/2 of the casts get dumped your profit margins take a big hit), and because if a cavity fails either right away or later as the mould wears out you've got to make a whole new mould where with a single figure mould you've got a bunch of others that are ok (again the duds can just be remelted and if only 1 or 2 cavities are invlived the spin cost isn't effected too badly) so if they want to cheap out they can certainly do that effectively (if, they don't already have a bunch of them in stock from the old Rackham casts as Grefven says)

    Batman: Gotham City Chronicles - Season 2 by Monolith Kickstarter

    As with a lot of boardgames (both KS & direct to retail) the base box is much better value than the expansions (which will not sell as well so do have some excuse for being more expensive) so don't feel bad if you just want the basic game (especially if your going in for mini plundering as your primary cause),

    Batman: Gotham City Chronicles - Season 2 by Monolith Kickstarter

    The minis are decent, certainly well worth having if you want to run superhero stuff, I can't comment on gameplay as I've not had a chance to play yet

    What are the "Required Viewing" Sci-Fi Movies?

    lots of solid choices I'll throw in The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension Event Horizon

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

    Wonder if that's a consequence of Brian moving on?

    Raid on the Temple of Serpent

    I got their steampunk dwarves which was prior to dragon empire/lobotomy etc and at that point they were casting in house and doing a decent job of it (their communication less so)
  12. 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.

    Devil May Cry boardgame by Steamforged Games, Kickstarter

    (they've had a £5 million investment from a local business development fund so even if they had misjudged their funding they'll have the moneyto finish it off the previous projects now Edit: although I think it's more likely they just ran out of steam on the game as they don't want it to all be just the same with new sculpts & since other stuff like RE2 has delivered and no doubt pinched design time)

    Greebo Primal Scales

    they're generally very good in terms of fidelity/detail, so if you're happy converting from metal, go for it

    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
  23. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806316071/batmantm-gotham-city-chronicles/comments KS only (not coming to retail as Monolith made a loss on the retail version of their Conan game) optional buys plus lots of unlocked stretch goals game roughly based on the fairly well recived Conan game engine, they did a decent job with the Conan minis too so if your into batman and have the (significant) buy in it's probably a wise pick.

    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.
