Kickstarter Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

I'm dumb. I saw the kickstarter notice at the top of the front page and ignored it until after I bought the miniatures I'd come to buy -- 65111 Frost Giant Warrior, 65100 Frost Giant Warrior, 14599 Frost Giant Jarl, and 03431 Frost Giant Princess -- and then I checked the kickstarter. And discovered I could have picked up the Jarl and Princess for $10 instead of $40. And in plastic, which I have to admit is a lot easier to work with when dealing with really large figures.

Just remember the TIME angle. Vampire level rewards won't show until March 2013.

Just keep telling yourself you're not dumb, you're just impatient, and that you couldn't wait until March to have those giants...

Another question that I can't seem to find the complete answer to:

 

If I pledge a given amount, when the kickstarter ends will I be able to increase that amount or am I limited to how much I pledged?

 

Basically, I'm wondering if I can pledge-and-forget at "Vampire" and then check back when it's over to add on my goodies/upgrades, or do I have to follow the kickstarter every day to make sure that everything I want has been completely pledged-for before the kickstarter expires?

Wow, good question!

Generally no, at least not though Kickstarter itself, so you'll want to make sure your totals are correct before it ends.

 

Some campaigns, however, do create paypal accounts and let backers adjust their totals via that if they need an increase for a short time after the KS ends.

Which I hope Reaper does because my "pledge" is a gift from a friend.

Eilif - what I would recommend doing is to pledge what you'll think you'll be able to spend and want to spend overall regardless of what the award levels are right now. Basically, just assume there will be cool stuff you'll spend on. Then come back a day or two before the KS ends, and adjust your total up or down to reflect what you actually want, based on the new rewards you see there.

 

You don't have to be obsessive like the rest of us...

It's not obsessive - it's needed! Everyone knows that you have to watch the ticker and concentrate really hard to make it go up.

 

Either we'll reach a million or I'll have an aneurism!

 

Must... concentrate... on... more... minis......

These things can explode over the last few hours though, I'm concerned what I might miss out on if I'm at work when the whole thing finishes and the last stretch goals are being unveiled. Maybe I can get that day off... :;):

Unfortunately, that makes it even more likely that I'll be working. Though I guess it'll be Sunday here when it finishes, so then it depends what time... time zones are hard. :wacko:

      This is one I've had "in progress" for ages. I finally mustered the courage to tackle all the eyes and then had fun with drool!

      Just thought i would put these up to show off the new party making their way through saltmarsh.  A party of six graduates from the civilized lands, roped into fulfilling a debt by their mentors.  At least they are working together...  they arent my finest work but for 6 hours of painting, they will do nicely for our little gaming group and the group enjoyed the surprise of coming to their second session to discover they all had custom painted minis!
       
      we have a Halfling fighter
      an elven thief with a fixation for daggers
      a halfling bard
      the blue dragonborn priest of Protos
      the black Dragonborn warlock (had to create the head.  I couldnt find a dragonborn mini with an 8 strength...)
      and a Human ranger from the backstreets and slums
       
      hope you enjoy them, i dont know how long they will last....

      Here is my Callie.
      I painted her as a second WIP for my BONES 1 attempts.
      I really like the sculpt.  I painted her as a half-orc or orc.  She has some freckles, nice green gems, and some ivy freehand on the cloak.
       
      Here is a link to the WIP.

      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome.

      Got this one done at a painting day in about 3 hours of work, but interrupted by cups of tea. :)

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
