Otherworld Indiegogo Campaign


Recommended Posts

Can I just ask if people here have received their rewards from this campaign (aside from Nocturne above, who seems to have gotten his one mini already in February ::):), I'm getting a bit worried about this one. According to the last update, everything from phase I was supposed to have been shipped out a couple weeks ago. There has been no word from the project creator for a month now, neither on the Indiegogo comments section or the Otherworld forums (people are starting to sound grumpy). Also, there are some people on the Otherworld forums asking about orders placed way back in April (with no reply).

 

I still really like Otherworld Miniatures but It is sad that we are coming up on 2 years late.    :down:

 

 

Oh well as a whole we are still way better off with OW than CSM.    :wacko:

 

 

Awesome old school mini KS's must have a curse like dragons gold.   :;,;:

OMG! OMG! You could knock me over with a feather.   My Otherworld rewards arrived today, well... Most of them. The weapon/equipment conversion kit was missing as was the treasure chest assortment a

I've just had a mail from Richard stating that my minis will be delivered in England tomorrow

I think the problem might be lack of planning on creators side.... but that said yes... not nearly as bad as CSM... but still very very frustrating.  And that said as someone who has their minis...

 

Nice minis.  Great cases.  Very very slow delivery!

The lack of communication is what hurts. I've had kickstarters go south and I would much rather be informed. I would much rather hear "we shipped X this month, and have Y left to ship" or "I miscalculated the shipping costs. If you are willing to pay extra for shipping please contact us. Otherwise I will be shipping out X a month out of my other funds" (two examples from kickstarters that had problems) than hear Nothing.

I can't understand why Otherworld aren't talking. It must truly be hurting business.

People have been asking for how much shipped/how much left for years, but they refuse to answer.

 

I imagine it would have been better to make a loan of 5000$ or whatever is needed, and just produce and ship the stuff, rather than expecting to let profit off a much smaller sale income cover it.

 

Otherworld are alienating their customer base this way, something I think is extremely sad. They have great products and also great products in the pipeline. I would love to see them reach their full potential!

Well by this time saying nothing is (sadly) the best thing they can do (except for saying 'I have now sent everything out, KS fulfilled')

 

 

everybody effected is well and truly fed up with them by no, so there is little real possibility of salvaging this set of buyers

 

KS liabilities probably outweigh the liquid (or total) assets of the business 

 

and any communication will remind the backers who have forgotten/given up on this already they are owed something and all it would take is one of them to react by reaching for a lawyer for the whole business to be scuppered

 

so keep quite (and keep shipping what they can when they can to those who are complaining in private or complaining or just  active on KS)

Can this be closed? Are there folks here still waiting?

 

 

I have not received every last item, so I am still waiting.

I'm curious what you're still waiting for. I received all the adventurer minis and some of the accessory minis but never did receive them all. Pretty much gave up on those a long time ago now.

It's been awhile and I was wondering if anyone had anything new to report.

Oh, crud I forgot to post.  I got the last of the items in October, I think.

 

I emailed and said that I wanted to place a store order but only when the last of the indiegogo items were ready.  He emailed me back about 2 weeks later and said the items were ready and so I ordered a few items from the store and it all came.

 

 

 

Like I said before

I placed another small store order in Jan and it came in Feb, took about the same amount of time as all my other orders with Otherworld over the years. So he just really did a bad job on this indiegogo campaign.

 

More than likely hurt his business more than it helped.

It made me way more leery about buying Otherworld figures, despite really liking the frost giant and unicorns I initially got.

Ugh -- We need a thread of successful IGG campaigns.

 

Creator James Mathe has written an article why creator's shouldn't use IGG (less funding than KS), and IGG has a reputation of less reputable products than KS (haven't heard of any for miniatures or boardgames).

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "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
