Worst Value Kickstarter Option.

Recommended Posts

I got two vampires so I traded in one Sophie. I also got the Force of Nature but I don't feel bad at all about the price (adding sales tax where I live would bump the cost over $15 anyway), I ordered plenty of other add-ons that more than make up for any possible loss.

 

I'm just happy that we should be getting our stuff soon.

This was because, like unidentifiable, I also have zero use for a succubus on a motorcycle for gaming (that, and I'm also a self-professed prude).

 

I have no use for a naked succubus on a motorcycle in my campaign, but now that I have UL Sophie, I have reason to find a way to work one into my game.

 

It's going to be harder justifying the Nova Corps soldiers, but that's why they invented Time Travel.

 

 

Just have a player or NPC push an undefined button on a Cubic Gate while inside a Bag of Holding while a Portable Hole is opened at the same time. Should be able to use Sophie, Nova Corps and Sasha at the same time.

This news actually makes me happy - I hemmed and hawed over the Forces of Nature add on, but really only wanted multiples of one of the two figures. Now I can get them for less than I would have.

I look at it this way: I may have "overpaid" for the Forces of Nature, but that extra money that I pledged went into unlocking more figures, many of which came free. So I did still get something for that additional $2 or so. From a certain point of view.

And even if you say Force of Nature was a bad option value wise - you still needed Vampire first.

So you can really first complain that your deal was bad, if your pledge was Vampire and 300+ Force of Nature and nothing else (and I can't imagine anyone having such a pledge).

A couple comments on the year of metal Crown Jewel. It also included a full vampire pledge, so technically it was a $900 buy-in for the metal. I looked back at the store value of the previous year of releases (once I pinned Matt and Bryan down on what was actually included :)) and came up with roughly $1600.

 

As we went over a little in another thread, the KS basically shut down new production for Reaper in March, probably until shipping completes (so still not putting out new minis into a 4th month now). Bryan likes to say optimistically that they're actually releasing a slew of minis, but they're not metal :) Anyway, the powers that be came up with a very generous solution and I feel no matter which option was taken I'd be satisfied that it was FAR from the worst value.

 

Not the ridiculous value of the $100 vamp box, not the value of Kaladrax, but far from the bottom end of the scale. In my own case, I intend on saving some of my credit for Reapercon next year, so technically part of my reward was RCon 2014 classes! My apologies in advance to the artists.

Worst value kickstarter option? Anything that involved giving up Sophie. Other then that, yeah, you pretty well came ahead on everything, even the one option where you came a little behind on retail, you came ahead on everything. unless you gave up Sophie, in which case i need to revoke your 'Sophie Fan Club' card, after I design and make a Sophie fan club card.

 

Having never bought Reaper miniatures prior to backing this Kickstarter, and never even hearing of ReaperCon or Sophie, I didn't even know what the big deal was with a motorcycle-riding succubus. So I had no problem trading her away for models I can actually use in my games. I plead ignorance.

I traded Sophie for more minis.

 

It was an easy choice; big awesome dragon, or useless succubus on motorbike?

 

Now if Sophie had of been riding a nightmare it would have been different.

That sounds hard to arrange.

 

In a previous campaign, one I might return to, the party traveled through time (into the past) to retrieve a lost key, and the wizard who helped them do it ended up getting dragged off to "somewhere beyond time" by the Time Lords to serve out his punishment. The players were really quick to sell him out and let him take all the blame, and I always thought it would be fun to bring that wizard back seeking revenge. And, of course, his allies would be selected from throughout time. Dinosaurs, cowboys, Space Marines, whatever.

Sophie riding a nightmare belongs in the minis I'd like to see thread.
