Does anyone else keep checking the KICKSTARTER website?

Just another 4000 till the next update (at 235k). ::D:

 

On those prepaid mastercards.. do you have to pay any sort of extra fee? Can you get one with about $500, spend it, and then pretty much toss the card?

It depends on where you buy it from. Stay away from the ones at Walmart - they essentially make you setup a non-free checking account to use them. Got one for a gift one time, and it was a freaking major headache to finally use the money on the card. Read the terms and conditions carefully of any other of the "off the rack" ones you see at other stores.

 

The best sources for something like this are Credit Unions. Most of the time they're free or very cheap to set up for higher dollar amounts. If you're not a credit union member, typically if you know someone who is, they can set the account up for you. However, there may be a wait to get the card, so be careful on that front.

On their facebook post: Matthew Paul Clark We are working on some sort of solution to this problem... I'll get back with you.

 

I'll bug em again about it when there's less than 15 days left to pledge. Hate to bug em much right now about it. Besides, I should be moving soon so I might need to have the minis shipped to a different address anyways.

 

Edit: Besides, I'm sure they'd want to include anyone who frequently uses their online store. They have a paypal option for their store, so why not include it in this as well? It will probably be an option near the end of the kickstarter.. though I wish I could contribute to the total.

 

Credit cards just don't agree with me. I don't like the idea of all the red tape, commitments, interest, etc..

Kickstarter doesn't care if we send a link to paypal to our users, but you're right, it doesn't contribute to the overall goal.

 

We'll have something that will appeal to you at the end of the campaign.

 

But for obvious reasons, we would prefer that people who can pledge do. It helps us and everyone else who pledges.

If I can give you guys a bit of advice do not use Paypal for pre orders. If you receive/make X amount of money withing Y amount of time your Paypal account will be locked up.

 

Use Google Check out or something else. I do not want this to happen to reaper Miniatures.

No worries. PayPal wants to keep our business. They told me so.

Good to hear!

 

Just I Stray on the side of caution... When it comes to pay pal at least.

 

As I get deeper and deeper into Kickstarter-ism (Yes it is almost a religion now)

I have to ask when will Reaper take my money?!

 

Reaper mini's this is aimed at you!

You did not take enough of MY money!

 

I know what I pledged! Just take more! I need my toy soldiers and monsters!

 

My life is complete! :upside:

 

In all seriousness - Reaper keep up the AWESOME work -

Keep your prices low for the average Joe gamer and Keep churning out those awesome minis and you will keep my business.

Kinda reading between the lines there, and the after campaign deal sounds good, but not as good as the KS campaign itself. I guess that's expected though.

Maybe I can convince a friend to let me use their debit card on Amazon. Then I could cancel the account after I get the last minis.

Contact your local bank branches and see if any of them sell American Express or Visa gift cards to non-members. You'll pay a premium upfront for them, but they are a universaly accepted at any retailer that accepts Amx or Visa. At bank I worked at we sold gift cards to members at a better fee than non-members, but we did sell them to anyone.

There are two types of cards: Pre-paid and Gift. Pre-paid are unofficial checking accounts with lots of hidden fees. The benefit is they can be reloaded and usually have a lower up front fee. Gift Cards OTOH have a one time up front fee and after that the money is on the card until it is gone. Some Gift Cards will start charging maintainence fees if the money isn't gone within a year or two, so just use the card up as soon as possible. Always get gift cards, not pre-paid cards if you're trying to live without debit/credit cards.

Visa gift cards lack fees, period. Pick one up at Walgreens. Last I saw, they were trying to put a Walgreens on every street corner on the planet...

 

And anyplace that can manage a Visa card can handle a Visa gift card.

      I'm just gonna let them sell it:
       
      Story
      This Kickstarter campaign is intended to expand the Going Native line of models. We have a lot of new models sculpted and ready to be cast, along with scores of newly designed models that are ready to head off to the sculptors. We are doing a lot of new things with this campaign than we have done with earlier campaigns. So lets get started -
       
      Rise of the City States
      In the Americas, as in Europe, powerful states would rise out of small chiefdoms or towns. These states were mighty cities with formidable militaries often lead by savvy and charismatic kings, queens or princes.  While we will stretch beyond this from time to time, the City States will be the main theme of this campaign.
       
      Physical Products
      Unlike Kickstarter campaigns, all of my models and kit Physical products and not printable files. The vast majority of my models have be hand sculpted and classically cast. This campaign is very much a celebration of craftsmanship. Man sized models are planned to be spun cast in metal. The larger than man sized models will be cast in resin.
       
      It's shiny. There's a guy riding a giant starfish. How can you go wrong with that? >.>

      Sod all to do with gaming, but I know we've got cat people with their own voids at home; and some of you might be into pins and need a Void of Blep of your own.
      Or.. heck, I'unno. Maybe you need void stickers or something.

      Another fun project from Midlam, this time Gnome and Halfling Children.

      Unlike most of their previous projects, they're having multiple stretch goals.


       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/gnome-and-halfling-children/description

       
      Story
       
      Most Halfling children (or Quarterlings) lead a happy carefree existence in the sleepy backwaters of the halfling lands, in preparation for their happy care free adulthood that they will spend in those same lands. 
      Gnome Children (or Gnomelings) generally play around their Gnome hill homes, told not to go too far, but equally, not to hang around inside the hill getting in everyone's way.
      Quarterlings and Gnomelings
      Welcome to our latest project, where we bring you the much anticipated junior Gnomes and Halflings!  These compliment Midlam Miniatures' large and growing range of Adult Gnomes and Halflings.  Here you can back one, the other, or both sets!
      Stretch Goal Levels #1 - #3 Unlocked!
       
      Stretch Goals
      Unlike most of our Kickstarters which offer 1 or perhaps 2 miniatures, we are going to add a Halfling and Gnome Child miniature for ever £1000 we reach, until the classes are empty and we have run out of miniatures.  Some stretch goal miniatures might be  bigger than others and may count as two stretch goals (over £2000) due to their size and weight.
