    Okay, now you should have Dakka's attention. Who doesn't need a reasonably priced demonic head on their apocalyptic battlefield?? https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/0/775660.page#10452833

    Bones mini turning sticky after a while

    Keep up the science! I just painted some Oh Rats with craft paints as the first coat. If Reaper says I don't need primer, sure, I'll do less work!

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    From Reddit: "I am a licensed Customs Broker in the US. I literally deal with these tariffs ALL day long. People sit here and complain that "Well a 25% price increase is going to kill businesses". Here is some news for you to get a better perspective on this situation: So let's say a game publisher has a game with an MSRP of $60.00. The actual cost they declare to Customs is around $8-$11, on average. The rest of the cost goes to paying for things like ocean freight charges (which are non-dutiable and thus, the tariffs do not impact), and warehousing and trucking and profit and labor costs and other local charges, none of which are dutiable and thus the tariffs do not affect. That means, on a game that has an import cost of $8.00, the tariff adds $2 to the price of importation of that copy of the game. $2 to a $60 game is a total increase of 3.33%. That sort of cost can be absorbed with barely any notice to the consumer. And if you think I making things up, these tariffs have been in place for virtually everything from China since September. How many things have you noticed huge cost hikes on? Anything that jumped 25%? Any small businesses that were thriving prior to Sep 4 that are now out of business? Most people here seem to think of this like a VAT, or a Value Added Tax, which is a flat tax added at the time of sales tax, which means you are taxed on all the freight and trucking and warehousing and whatever charges. That is not how tariffs work. So that $95 copy of Gloomhaven, were it imported from China after these tariffs, would (assuming the cost was fully passed on) cost about $98-100. Again, not a 25% cost increase. And the reality of this is that the additional tariffs they take in from China and a few other countries help offset the ridiculous runaway spending that Congress does so that it offsets some of the money we end up borrowing from China to pay for their nonsense." https://www.reddit.com/r/boardgames/comments/boej7d/toys_board_games_dice_included_in_proposed/enhgp0r/ https://www.reddit.com/r/boardgames/comments/bphyo3/board_games_are_about_to_be_hit_with_a_25_tariff/

    Devil May Cry boardgame by Steamforged Games, Kickstarter

    If you're not familiar with Steamforged Games, do your due diligence. We just had a thread on creators with multiple open projects, and SFG has three open. I'm ambivalent about investors, and consider them a yellow flag. I've seen a KS fail because an investor pulled out, leaving the backers with a project that could not be fulfilled (Fairy Tale Battle Royale (?)). Investors may also interfere with a project, causing delays. However, CMON now has investors, and it's possible that many KS that deliver have investors without telling their backers. The Dark Souls backers are not happy with SFG's fulfillment. : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/steamforged/dark-soulstm-the-board-game?ref=discovery_popular&term=dark souls BGG reviews of their Resident Evil 2 game are mixed. Common complaint is about their tiles that are too dark. Details on character mini's are soft. Gameplay depends on a random item draw. : https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/233896/resident-evil-2-board-game/forums/63 While miniature costs vary, I'm seeing 27 different sculpts, including expensive ones, but the funding is only $230,000. Molds can cost 5K to 15K+ for a single sculpt. If you can wait for a sale at retail, you can sometimes find the base game at half of the pledge plus shipping. I'm fine with just the main characters, so will be doing this. The designer, James M. Hewitt, has a good amount of game design experience.

    "Hey, let's stick half a crocodile on it." "Okay." Just noticed these would make proxies for KDM. Y'know, while I (still not) paint my KDM miniatures.

    I don't watch them. Unless they involve cats. Japanese ones, of course. Japanese Twitter loves adorable cats’ reactions to Monster Hunter: World’s Felyne voices https://soranews24.com/2018/01/31/japanese-twitter-loves-adorable-cats-reactions-to-monster-hunter-worlds-felyne-voice-sounds/

    Loke Battle Mat's The Dungeon

    Eh, I didn't mention free shipping. fwiw, The project says they will not increase shipping, which may make buying add-ons less expensive compared to retailers or their website. Emphasis is on *may* since at least one UK retailer is a better buy for UK backers than the KS (and will ship stuff sooner, of course).
