    BattleSystems - Fantasy Terrain 2

    How so? Do you mean to make it match the sides? I've used black pens on the white edges of cardstock before (which works pretty well), but I haven't used other colors.

    Planet of the Apes The miniatures Boardgame

    I'd guess: Speculative Earlybird lock-ins opting out, and The campaign announced a reboot Hopefully they'll get an opportunity to make those trees (and tree-bridges) at an affordable price in the future. Seriously: just selling trees (from a single mold) could make them a mint.

    The Path to El Dorado - Aztec Dungeon Tiles

    Ditto. I too was very happy with their final product (and how they handled their kickstarter), and will be backing them again.

    Planet of the Apes The miniatures Boardgame

    I too really like the trees, and they appear to offer them separately via their first pledge level ("Reforestation"). However, it appears to be $65 for two trees (plus $15 shipping). Ouch. Did I get that right?
  5. This Kickstarter did not disappoint! I've been using this as a prop for my Call of Cthulhu game. The artwork and presentation is incredible... exactly what I wanted (at a very reasonable price).

    Cthulhu: The Harbinger

    I really like that they re-purpose minis: I got a great deal with the first Kickstarter, and I'm glad PF and 5e players got a similar chance to obtain the same cool minis. Well: if I'm going represent actual Cthulhu as a mini, it should probably be at least toddler sized. Anything smaller is suitable only as an avatar or spawn ("Gogobeg or go home"). Before the 'Death May Die' Cthulhu came along, I had been eyeing the Horrorclix Cthulhu (and thinking it was still too small).

    Mantic : Terrain Crate 2 KS

    I did something similar for my Reaper Bones, but Army Painter Leather Brown primer came out far too dark when combined with Army Painter Strong Tone ink/dip (aka Minwax Polyshades Tudor satin stain). Army Painter Fur Brown primer seemed to work better for dark brown results, while Desert Yellow primer worked well for a light brown/sepia results. I dipped several hundred Bones this way, but I didn't like this technique when I tried it on terrain. Dry-brushing seemed more suitable (plus: it didn't require a mat spray afterwards to take off the gloss).

    Mantic : Terrain Crate 2 KS

    Ditto. I mostly play D&D and Call of Cthulhu, so these new sets seem perfect for me. The only down-side is that I have too much unpainted terrain. Any tips for getting Terrain Crates table-ready easily? I dry-brushed some of the brown pieces with light-brown... it seemed good enough.

    Mantic : Terrain Crate 2 KS

    Really? Out of the 80+ Kickstarters I've backed, the Terrain Crates was actually one of my favorites. It felt well run to me, and I was extremely pleased with the results, which seemed exactly like the concepts. I now have an obscene amount of (non-fragile) terrain at a ludicrously low price (I almost felt like I ripped them off)... so I'm pretty darn happy I didn't miss this one.

    Deep Madness Second Printing Kickstarter

    Can you elaborate? Are the tiles different in this set? (I didn't back the previous one, and want to re-purpose the tiles for RPG's)

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    I'm pretty happy with my shipment. I suppose I could use them unpainted, but I'd prefer not. Still: I don't have the desire to spend a lot of time. What's the quickest way to get these done? Can I just drybrush the brown pieces with light brown? Or do I really need to base-coat first?

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Ah: I hadn't used their rules, I just really liked having alternate sculpts (especially for re-use in RPG's), and it seemed like an excellent option for miniature games in general. It's too bad that the associated rules in that case didn't live up to the potential, but I'd like to see more innovative uses for miniatures, like: Representing a condition (binary state) via an alternate sculpt Representing gear with snap-on or magnetic bits Representing resource attrition (hit-points, ammo, crew) on larger models with removable bits (or even movable bits... just something more aesthetic than click-bases) Representing combos (kinda like the Small-World races) via a snap-together method (upper/lower? alternate bases? Chimeric creations?)

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Exactly! CMON made zombie versions of their zombicide heroes, so making crazed versions of their Cthulhu Investigators seems like a natural.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Exactly. They nailed this one. I would never have pledged for it... until I noticed the price creeping up... which challenged me to start hitting refresh.

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    Luckily, I only use Army Painter now, after a 'tacky' experience with the some (non-Bones) minis. Yup. Actually I use Minwax Polyshades (Tudor Satin) instead of Army Painter QuickShade (due to it being much cheaper), but same difference.
