Blackwater Gulch: Rebels and Reinforcements Kickstarter

Recommended Posts

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/springboard/blackwater-gulch-rebels-and-reinforcements

 

Project is a followup to the western themed Blackwater Gulch game campaign a couple months back. Here, we have large amounts of various gangs of minis.

 

Sweet spots seem to be at between $100 and $150 (each one gives you different amounts of starter sets, but all give you every single unlocked solo mini)

 

Points of interest:

$25 add-on for 10 bottles of Army Painter paints. Essential colors.

$10 for 10 scenic bases

$50 for a Battlefoam C4 bag

$60 for 2 Gamecraft buildings and 2 outhouses

$60 for Battleflag bundle of a sheriff's office and a gallows

These ones in particular, Tombstone is one of my favorite modern westerns.

Suppose I should add that all pledge levels include free shipping to the US, Canada, UK, EU, and Australia. That's pretty impressive!

I expect the Tranquility crew will be popular but I think they should have placed them earlier due to their obvious appeal to more than just Western gamers. 90k is quite a ways to go so theres a danger of.people backing for those then pulling late on if they're not going to make it.

Hope I'm wrong as they look great but as I'm personally going to be backing just for Tranquility I'd be surprised that I'm alone.

The danger of homage figures and stretch goals.

I've been struggling to keep away from any more kickstarters right now, and I only took a peek at this thread cause I thought I was safe as I already have enough Old West minis thanks to Black Scorpion and Reaper... But then the first thing is see is the Tranquilty crew and I can ready feel my resolve begin to buckle.

 

So far I've manage to resist going to check out the kickstarter, but I would like to know if any sculptors have been mentioned yet.

Carp! :(

 

Might as well take my wallet out behind the woodshed right now and shoot it to put it out of its misery.

You still have a wallet? I have my paychecks direct deposited into the Kickstarter account, now.

Okay, these minis I don't really need, but the Colt 45 d6's might be a major must get. I have an ex-army buddy that will most likely make me order some for him.

@dariustad. Yep. All my hobby money, and a bit more, has been going into kickstarter since April. ;)

 

Okay. So I went to the site and I do have a few concerns. I see that their previous kickstarter topped out at $21,000. Which leaves me wondering how likely we'll see those $90,000 rewards met. Especially as the kickstarter is only running for 22 days. Over a week shorter than most similar kickstarters I've backed. Add into the mix that this is running pretty close to the Christmas season, plus it seems to me that mini kickstarters in general have been reaching more modest levels lately, and I really have to wonder if they'll reach the sets that I really want.

 

Won't stop me from backing them completely though. I've been interested in trying out buildings from both those companies that are being offered in the add-ons, and while not a terribly great savings over ordering them direct from the manufacturer, with free shipping of this kickstarter it's worth it to give them a try.

 

I'll be see'in ya'll over on the Blackwater Gulch kickstarter pardners!

Also all the current purchasable stuff is from the first KS and you don't even have the option to buy the new stuff until it hits 10k which means everyone who bought into the first KS has no reason to join in right away.

 

For doing a KS to get extra starters they really seam to just be raising money as it's 10k until they add 1 and then 20k after that turns me off completely to this.

Well, keep in mind, the 10k mark is their original goal, so until they hit that, they really don't have anything new to offer! The first new set has 5 minis, so that is 2k per mini to launch. That includes shipping, KS fees, potential taxes. Apparently they swam in red ink from the last one, but managed to fulfill. I get the feeling they are just trying to be more realistic, much like the ShadowSea KS.

It's a bit different from the Shadow seas one as what was offered was new stuff, this KS is just selling what they already have. I understand not wanting to be in the red from KSers, it's way to common for first time people to over discount, but this one is totally being presented wrong and just seams like they're using KS as a glorified store front.

      Rescued this pair from the Box of Goodwill over the summer, and tried for a quick tabletop job during my Thanksgiving paint binge. Didn't quite get them finished in November, but they are done now.  Spent way too much time on them because I didn't start with a color scheme in mind and ended up having to repaint a couple areas.

      Well, I figured that the market for cactus-folk was small enough that I shouldn't wait on it, so I decided to get to work on a Saguaro Cowboy and a Cactus Dryad. I got the inspiration to get up and get to work when I saw a picture of a crested saguaro:



      which really settled the question of "how do I put dryad hair on a cactus lady and make it work?" 
      Twisted up an armature for a dude and a lady, 


      and started slapping green stuff on.
       
       
      Here's a very rough outline of the dryad's torso with a preliminary series of grooves, almost none of which will probably make it to the finished product.
       

      Both she and the lariat-wielding saguaro vaquero will have blunt, stubby feet and arms with little muscle or joint definition, both because that's how saguaros do and because I am...not a professional sculptor by a long chalk. 

      C&C welcome; this is the rough draft of the first draft of each of them and I'll be doing a lot of trimming and repositioning, no doubt.

      Truly delightful sculpts by Bombshell that work well for a Weird West of gun-toting saloon gals and persnickety varmints. 

      The sculpt listed as "Warfare Wombat" is clearly procyonid and in no way meant to represent a marsupial. Thus does copyright law make fools of us all (well, all except copyright lawyers, I suppose). While he might have been intended for a spacefuture setting, that uniform with the two rows of buttons looked like it could be retconned for a strange American Civil War. So I slapped together a half-assed kepi from greenstuff and painted him in Union blue. I didn't want to obscure the markings on his forehead, so the kepi is being blasted cartoonishly back by recoil. 

      "Rocket's red glare," indeed. 


      Eloise Covington is much more refined, all flounces and furbelows, bustle, ribbons, and lace. Still, she is one determined lady, and a mean shot! 
      The pink-on-pink color scheme is admittedly rather tacky, but tacky in a recognizably Victorian way. 

      Eyes didn't come out too badly on her either.

      My first mini of 2019, she is part of a group I am painting for a steampunk/time travel game my group is playing.
       
       

       
      For inspiration I used this fashion plate, the figure on the right:
