Bummer. Which ones?

 

 

there was one for metal dinosaur skulls/skeletons. the guy got too far over his head. this is his 2nd kickstarter, his first one went off splendidly so i thought it was safe. It's been over 3 years now, he's stopped posting on facebook and there are no updates, i suspect i'm never getting my $600 worth of skulls and bronze mounted skeletons

 

2 video game ones where one has basically died, and the other is in limbo without a word to what's happening to it

 

my desert of the dead miniatures came to me broken and missing pieces, and i'm just tired of that happening with non-bones minis i back on kickstarter

60- Hobgoblin Raiding Party, (Midlam Miniatures), January 2020, The Hobgoblin Raiding Party. Midlam has nice sculpts and has an impeccable record on quality and delivery.

61- 2' Tower: A Tall Tale for 3D Printing (+ Free Siege Tower), (Jeremy Gosser), December 2019, The Tower. A basic 3D model that got a plenty of stretch goals for cheap.

62- Waylaid by Bandits Vol.2, (Midlam Miniatures), February 2020, Vol 1 and 2, I skipped their first male all Bandit KS, so I got to add it to the all female group. Stop being so awesome Midlam!

63- Pulp Figures Dangerous Dames 28mm Miniatures, (Crucible Crush), April 2020, Dangerous Dames Miniatures. Very few female pulp figures exist, and it's Canadian, so this was an easy pledge.

64- Halflings Gone Bad, Volume 2, (Midlam Miniatures), April 2020, the whole set of 16. Midlam does it again and is still awesome.

65- Cult of the Moon Goddess, (Midlam Miniatures), May 2020, complete set of 13. Midlam successfully lured me again with an interesting selection with various uses.

66- 28-mm Fantasy Female Amazons, (Tomb Guardians), March 2020, Amazon Faction, very nice female tough looking adventuresses with a few bonus goals.

67- THE STORY ENGINE deck of endless storytelling prompts + book, (Peter Chiykowski), June 2020, Physical copy of deck + 3 expansions. Not a new concept, but elegant execution.

71- Sisters of the Kraken Cult, (Midlam Miniatures), July 2021, Sisters of the Kraken Cult + Fish Folk. Half-fish/half-people and women who smell of the sea, ergo MERMAIDS that don't conform to your standards of beauty.

72- Reaper Miniatures Bones 5: Escape from Pizza Dungeon, (Reaper), April 2021. Wave 2 Canada Europe non-UK. I think we all know this one.

73- Critical Role: The Legend of Vox Machina Animated Special, (Critical Role), May 2020, Protector pledge level. I recently got hooked to their second campaign, so I got excited. The series got picked up by Amazon Prime and will get a second season. This curiously means that backers aren't getting as much value due to it not being as exclusive anymore. Instead we'll get early access to the first season. Oh well, that's the nature KS, you back something you believe in, not just for the stuff

 

Shipped or about to be shipped:

74- 28mm Fantasy Dwarven Miniature Collection II, (Tomb Guardians), February 2021, Dwarven II Metal Collection, I was impressed by their previous Amazon Heroes set and like the current selection.

 

Still within expected production/development period:

  Reveal hidden contents

75- Tiny Epic Dungeons, (Gamelyn Games), December 2021, Gameplay All-In. The Deluxe version + expansion. I own several of their games, and they've delivered. The minis are what won me over.

76- THE STORY ENGINE Deck of Worlds, (Peter Chiykowski), October 2022, All New Decks. I liked the first Story Engine KS, and though pricey, it's a good source of inspiration for world building.

77- The Kingpin of Dunkeldorf, (King Games), December 2021, The Kingpin pledge (early bird). Colorful characters, and I missed the last one by them, which I regret.

 

Delayed:

  Reveal hidden contents

78- The Catastrophes of Blightmoor, (Bear Clan Creative),  July 2020, Evil Plans. Very nice 3D models and some very big dragon pieces. Only a handful of models have been completed and released.

  Reveal hidden contents

79- IMMORTAL - Mythology Board Game (Game-O-Gami), March 2016

81- The Official Settlers of Catan Gaming Board (Bill Trammel), June 2013. Partially complete. I got the main board and 5-6 expansion years ago. Currently in IP trade dispute between game owner and mold maker for the Seafarers boards. I'm no longer expecting much from this one

Completed

Spoiler

Stonehaven Dwarf Adventurers:- Received with no issues. Have backed again.

 

Reaper Bones 1:- Slightly late, but no real issues. Didn't back any of the subsequent Bones Kickstarters (not a fan of the material).

 

Stonehaven Gnome Adventurers:- Also received with no issues. Have backed again.

 

Super Dungeon Explore - Forgotten King:- Late, but no other issues. Did not back any further Kickstarters from them (lost interest in chibi-style minis).

 

Wolsung:- Very late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (I have enough at the moment).

 

Carnevale:- Late, I considered the postage charges excessive and the mini I received was very poorly cast and sculpted. Will not back (or buy) anything from them in future.

 

Basius 2:- Late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (Don't use the 2 I got as much as I thought I would).

 

Minion Miniatures - Monsters of Underdeep:- Received late, but with no issues. Would recommend them.

 

Corvus Corax - Outcasts:- Received early, no issues. Have backed again.

 

Corvus Corax - Dawning:- Received early (again!), no issues (again!), would recommend them.

 

Kingdom Death - Monster:- Final expansion was cancelled and received a refund, so is now officially completed. Despite being VERY late I did back their latest project in the hope that lessons were learnt.

 

Song of Blades - Hammer and Forge:- Received on time. Looks good, would recommend.

 

Infamy - Goblin Chief:- Received 3 months (!?!) early. Lovely mini, would recommend.

 

Wild West Exodus - Unfinished Business:- Received on time. Pretty disappointed by the minis in the end, they seem to have been cast on the cheap, would not recommend backing anything of theirs again.

 

Bombshell Babes 2:- Received slightly early. Very nice minis, but would have appreciated some better packaging, they've all been a bit bashed and bent during transit. Would recommend.

 

Heroines in Sensible Shoes:- Received on time. Very nice minis, would recommend.

 

Going Native - New World Monsters:- Received late, but the quality is very nice. Would recommend.

 

Stonehaven Halfling Adeventurers:- Received late (but for good reasons), minis are up to the usual high Stonehaven standards. Would recommend.

 

Norsgard - Second Wave:- Received early, Very nice minis. Would recommend.

 

The Pantheon Of Chaos:- Received late, but was very pleased with what I got. Would recommend.

 

TGG2 - Light and Darkness:-  Received late. Decided to go with resin minis in the end just to get it over with, despite the minis being decent a lot of little things about this one annoyed me no end, would not back any more of their Kickstarters.

 

Shadows of Brimstone:- Received late (est. delivery Aug 2014). Finally arrived in early 2018, however it did look like they had spent the years putting a lot of work into the game, wouldn't back another one though.

 

Twisted:- Received late (est. delivery Nov 2016). Even taking into account that this was a two man team running their very first Kickstarter this one was extremely late, I would back another campaign though (I really like the minis), but I wonder if the delays in getting it out have killed any chances the game had.

 

Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3:- Received early (est. delivery May 2018). Straight into the completed column, why can't more Kickstarters be like this? Highly recommended, even if I personally probably won't be backing any more.

 

Carnvale:- Received late (est. delivery Feb 2018). This one got held up by rule-book issues (And considering I wasn't getting a rule-book was somewhat annoying), minis were nice but in quite a few small pieces. Would still recommend them though.

 

Daughters of the Burning Rose:- Received late (est. delivery Oct 2018). A fairly well run Kickstarter, they were very upfront that it was a lot more successful than expected and so would take a lot more time to fulfil. Unfortunately soon after I backed this one, the minis I wanted were superseded by (IMO) superior versions from another company, so this one was kinda a waste of money. Would recommend. 

 

Unbroken:- Received late (est. delivery Dec 2018). A decently made if not particularly good game, certainly not worth all the drama it generated. Would not back any further kickstarters or have any dealings with Golden Bell Studios in general, they're just not a particularly competent company.

 

The Stygian Depths:- Received slightly late (est. delivery May 2019). No real problems beyond a few communication issues (despite my griping), minis were nice and well packed. Would recommend even though I am unlikely to back any more of their Kickstarters myself (I have enough).

 

Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2:- Received slightly late (est. delivery April 2019). Not as well run as previous Stonehaven Kickstarters I have backed and the minis were rather poorly packed. I personally won't be backing any more and I'm not sure I'd recommend them to others either.

 

Twisted Monstrous Marvels:- Received slightly late due to understandable Covid/Brexit stuff, very snazzy minis. Probably one of the few companies I will back on Kickstarter at this point.

 

Middara:- Received Wave 1 a year late, looks great but I'm not going to up my pledge for the rest of it.

 

Pending

Spoiler

Kingdom Death: Monster 1.5:-

2017 Update:- Late, but Wave 1 shipments have started so it has only slipped by a couple of months. Sadly communication is just as lacking and irregular as it was in the previous Kickstarter.

2018 Update:- Getting later, Wave 3 delayed by at least a year. Amazingly, communication has gotten even worse (still waiting on the promised post-Gencon update), I know it'll get here one day and it'll be amazing when it does, but the situation is frustrating.

2019 Update:- Still getting later, Wave 3 delayed until next year (for now). My feelings are still mixed on this one, it's hard to argue against getting a load of new stuff for free, but I'm still annoyed with how this one is being run. At least there was a Gencon update this year.

2020 Update:- Communications have improved, but still no idea when Wave 3 will ship never mind Wave 4. (Update:- While this one is still moving with all the speed of continental drift, things are finally happening. Should get Wave 3 Part 1 (Pin-ups) in Jan or Feb with Part 2 (Gamblers Chest) late 2021).

 

Aeon Trespass: Odyssey:- Due Jan 2021. Too early to know with this one, but I get the feeling the creators expected this to be a lot more successful then it has been so far, so I will probably only stick with the base game pledge just in case.

2020 Update:- Regular, if not particularly informative updates (unless you own Tabletop Simulator). Think everything is still on track, but still undecided if I want to up my pledge. (Update:- Apart from the fact it's (understandably) going to be late, nothings changed on this one).

 

Reaper Bones V:- Due Apr 2021. Finally backing another Bones Kickstarter! Yay! From past Kickstarters I'm expecting this one to be late but no other issues.

2020 Update:- Everything seems to be going well.

 

Dawn of Madness:- Due Oct 2021. To early to tell how this one is doing. Don't think it was as successful as hoped for, so I'm not sure if I should add to my basic pledge, unfortunately a lot of the minis I really like are in the expansions ::(:.

2020 Update:- Seems to be going well. Upped my pledge because the minis are looking very nice, not sure about the game though. It's changed significantly from the initial pitch, but any info they put out about it is just so much word salad to me.

 

The Elves of Inneath:- Due Sep 2021. I think this is going well, a bit too early to tell. 

 

Failed

Spoiler

Imbrian Arts:-  No updates in years, I'm officially calling this one dead. Considering the on-line store is gone now, I'm not sure if I can even trade in my remaining pledge for existing minis anymore.

 

Mierce Miniatures - Savage Hordes 4:- While this one isn't officially dead, I'm no longer expecting to get anything else. Not a total failure, I did get all the existing minis I pledged for, but there's been no mention of the ones I'm waiting on since the Kickstarter ran.

 

Had a surprising amount of success getting refunds so I can cross a few of these off my list.

 

Etherfields:- Got my Wave 2 stuff refunded. They looked like nice minis but I've barely touched the ones I already have.

 

The Isofarian Guard:- Full refund. I kind of regret not sticking with this one as it was looking like a nifty game.

 

Batman - The Animated Adventures:- Full refund. Wasn't too happy with how this one was going any ways.

 

Supposedly Aeon Trespass Odyssey will refund me at some point, still waiting on a response from Dawn of Madness (judging by the comments section, this is a common issue).

 

Just 3 Kickstarters left! (Although I'm not sure if one of those will fulfil in my lifetime.)

What I've noticed is that funding does not improve companies. Palladium... Gamezone... CMON... KDM... business as usual after funding. Yet another reason to yellow-flag a First Created project, because you don't know the behavior of the company. About the only company that I've seen actually change is Prodos / Archon. Looks like they've stopped trying to plagiarize, er, make, boardgames and I haven't seen owner Jared / Jarek in a *long* while.

 

Oh, and my Tiny Furniture "Harvest of War" and Archon "Dungeons and Lasers 2" stuff arrived. Very happy with the resin miniatures (on the 25mm side) and plastic (restic??) sprues.

You can't really blame companies for continuing to run Kickstarters the way they always have when idiots like me keep backing their campaigns despite not being happy with how they do things :lol:

 

One thing I've finally realised is just how rare it is for a Kickstarter to have regular updates, despite it being something I've always moaned about, not sure why I didn't notice before.

I finally got to check a big Kickstarter off my list, The Mimic's Grid: The Adaptable RPG Adventure Tile. I went in for this to the tune of several hundred dollars. It was originally meant to deliver in Oct 2019, but various production and quality control issues pushed delivery into 2020, which meant it ran into a host of COVID-10-related problems. The creators regularly communicated with backers, and some people had received items, which gave me hope it would deliver in the end. However, the longer things went without a concrete timeframe for delivery, the more I was worried it would eventually fall over.

 

I've been searching for the holy grail of battle mat for many years now, having owned vinyl mats, Paizo laminated mats and several different tile battlemats from Kickstarter and Amazon. Several of those were good, but never fully hit all the points I was after. These ones feel like I've finally got the battle mat I've been looking for. Sorry if it sounds like a bit of hyperbole, but I super happy to both finally get my product and have it live up to the high expectations I'd set for it.

 

The tiles themselves are a coated metal, so they're really sturdy and should last a very long time. What really sets these apart the others I own is that the tiles are magnetic. That would be cool by itself, but the creators also made magnetic art objects and background map sheets to go with the tiles, so you can easily create really detailed and cool scenes by slapping some magnets down. I used them at my game last night and it just looked so much better than the hand drawn scenes I was creating before.

Checking the updates here got me looking at my KS list for the first time in awhile.  Now that Limbo has delivered I'm down to just three outstanding KS, and once I get my pirate ship it'll be just two.

 

What little I have pledged for recently has been for files delivered quickly over the internets.

Updated with Reaper Miniatures Bones V, which delivered today!

There was an update to Seelie Playing Cards.  Time will tell whether Gendron follows through.  If he does, it will absolutely be to his credit, as it's been quite the experience (and not a good one).  As I understand, he did eventually follow through on his other outstanding Kickstarter.

Yeah, I had the Monster Numbers book  in my list of outstanding ones, and he eventually managed to get that one completed.

Completed:-

Spoiler

Stonehaven Dwarf Adventurers:- Received with no issues. Have backed again.

 

Reaper Bones 1:- Slightly late, but no real issues. Didn't back any of the subsequent Bones Kickstarters (not a fan of the material).

 

Stonehaven Gnome Adventurers:- Also received with no issues. Have backed again.

 

Super Dungeon Explore - Forgotten King:- Late, but no other issues. Did not back any further Kickstarters from them (lost interest in chibi-style minis).

 

Wolsung:- Very late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (I have enough at the moment).

 

Carnevale:- Late, I considered the postage charges excessive and the mini I received was very poorly cast and sculpted. Will not back (or buy) anything from them in future.

 

Basius 2:- Late, but no other issues. No plans to back any future Kickstarters (Don't use the 2 I got as much as I thought I would).

 

Minion Miniatures - Monsters of Underdeep:- Received late, but with no issues. Would recommend them.

 

Corvus Corax - Outcasts:- Received early, no issues. Have backed again.

 

Corvus Corax - Dawning:- Received early (again!), no issues (again!), would recommend them.

 

Kingdom Death - Monster:- Final expansion was cancelled and received a refund, so is now officially completed. Despite being VERY late I did back their latest project in the hope that lessons were learnt.

 

Song of Blades - Hammer and Forge:- Received on time. Looks good, would recommend.

 

Infamy - Goblin Chief:- Received 3 months (!?!) early. Lovely mini, would recommend.

 

Wild West Exodus - Unfinished Business:- Received on time. Pretty disappointed by the minis in the end, they seem to have been cast on the cheap, would not recommend backing anything of theirs again.

 

Bombshell Babes 2:- Received slightly early. Very nice minis, but would have appreciated some better packaging, they've all been a bit bashed and bent during transit. Would recommend.

 

Heroines in Sensible Shoes:- Received on time. Very nice minis, would recommend.

 

Going Native - New World Monsters:- Received late, but the quality is very nice. Would recommend.

 

Stonehaven Halfling Adeventurers:- Received late (but for good reasons), minis are up to the usual high Stonehaven standards. Would recommend.

 

Norsgard - Second Wave:- Received early, Very nice minis. Would recommend.

 

The Pantheon Of Chaos:- Received late, but was very pleased with what I got. Would recommend.

 

TGG2 - Light and Darkness:-  Received late. Decided to go with resin minis in the end just to get it over with, despite the minis being decent a lot of little things about this one annoyed me no end, would not back any more of their Kickstarters.

 

Shadows of Brimstone:- Received late (est. delivery Aug 2014). Finally arrived in early 2018, however it did look like they had spent the years putting a lot of work into the game, wouldn't back another one though.

 

Twisted:- Received late (est. delivery Nov 2016). Even taking into account that this was a two man team running their very first Kickstarter this one was extremely late, I would back another campaign though (I really like the minis), but I wonder if the delays in getting it out have killed any chances the game had.

 

Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3:- Received early (est. delivery May 2018). Straight into the completed column, why can't more Kickstarters be like this? Highly recommended, even if I personally probably won't be backing any more.

 

Carnvale:- Received late (est. delivery Feb 2018). This one got held up by rule-book issues (And considering I wasn't getting a rule-book was somewhat annoying), minis were nice but in quite a few small pieces. Would still recommend them though.

 

Daughters of the Burning Rose:- Received late (est. delivery Oct 2018). A fairly well run Kickstarter, they were very upfront that it was a lot more successful than expected and so would take a lot more time to fulfil. Unfortunately soon after I backed this one, the minis I wanted were superseded by (IMO) superior versions from another company, so this one was kinda a waste of money. Would recommend. 

 

Unbroken:- Received late (est. delivery Dec 2018). A decently made if not particularly good game, certainly not worth all the drama it generated. Would not back any further kickstarters or have any dealings with Golden Bell Studios in general, they're just not a particularly competent company.

 

The Stygian Depths:- Received slightly late (est. delivery May 2019). No real problems beyond a few communication issues (despite my griping), minis were nice and well packed. Would recommend even though I am unlikely to back any more of their Kickstarters myself (I have enough).

 

Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2:- Received slightly late (est. delivery April 2019). Not as well run as previous Stonehaven Kickstarters I have backed and the minis were rather poorly packed. I personally won't be backing any more and I'm not sure I'd recommend them to others either.

 

Twisted Monstrous Marvels:- Received slightly late due to understandable Covid/Brexit stuff, very snazzy minis. Probably one of the few companies I will back on Kickstarter at this point.

 

Middara:- Received Wave 1 a year late, looks great but I'm not going to up my pledge for the rest of it.

 

Reaper Bones 5:- Received slightly late. Great minis but I had the same reaction I've been having with my Kickstarters for a while, get really excited when it's shipping, get really excited going through all the cool new stuff, then pack it all away and paint something from Games Workshop :down:. While I can't recommend the Bones Kickstarters enough, I probably won't be taking part in the next one.

 

Pending:-

 

Kingdom Death Monster:-

Spoiler

2017 Update:- Late, but Wave 1 shipments have started so it has only slipped by a couple of months. Sadly communication is just as lacking and irregular as it was in the previous Kickstarter.

2018 Update:- Getting later, Wave 3 delayed by at least a year. Amazingly, communication has gotten even worse (still waiting on the promised post-Gencon update), I know it'll get here one day and it'll be amazing when it does, but the situation is frustrating.

2019 Update:- Still getting later, Wave 3 delayed until next year (for now). My feelings are still mixed on this one, it's hard to argue against getting a load of new stuff for free, but I'm still annoyed with how this one is being run. At least there was a Gencon update this year.

2020 Update:- Communications have improved, but still no idea when Wave 3 will ship never mind Wave 4. (Update:- While this one is still moving with all the speed of continental drift, things are finally happening. Should get Wave 3 Part 1 (Pin-ups) in Jan or Feb with Part 2 (Gamblers Chest) late 2021).

2021 Update:- Received Wave 3 Part 1 (Pin-ups) earlier in the year. Wave 3 Part 2 (Gambler's Chest) remains trapped in the limbo of endless tinkering but creeps slowly towards the finish line, Wave 3 Part 3 (Campaigns of Death) and Wave 4 (Everything else) stay an unknown quantity.

 

Aeon Trespass: Odyssey:-

Spoiler

Due Jan 2021. Too early to know with this one, but I get the feeling the creators expected this to be a lot more successful then it has been so far, so I will probably only stick with the base game pledge just in case.

2020 Update:- Regular, if not particularly informative updates (unless you own Tabletop Simulator). Think everything is still on track, but still undecided if I want to up my pledge. (Update:- Apart from the fact it's (understandably) going to be late, nothings changed on this one).

2021 Update:- From the somewhat sporadic updates everything appears to be chugging along slowly, never did hear from them again about that refund though.

 

Dawn of Madness:-

Spoiler

Due Oct 2021. To early to tell how this one is doing. Don't think it was as successful as hoped for, so I'm not sure if I should add to my basic pledge, unfortunately a lot of the minis I really like are in the expansions ::(:.

2020 Update:- Seems to be going well. Upped my pledge because the minis are looking very nice, not sure about the game though. It's changed significantly from the initial pitch, but any info they put out about it is just so much word salad to me.

2021 Update:- Another one with infrequent updates that give an impression of slow progress. Never received a response to my e-mails about a refund, so I'll take that as a sign that they don't do them.

 

The Elves of Inneath:- Due Sep 2021. I think this is going well, a bit too early to tell. 

2021 Update:- This one appears like it might actually be on time.

 

Failed:-

Spoiler

Imbrian Arts:-  No updates in years, I'm officially calling this one dead. Considering the on-line store is gone now, I'm not sure if I can even trade in my remaining pledge for existing minis anymore.

 

Mierce Miniatures - Savage Hordes 4:- While this one isn't officially dead, I'm no longer expecting to get anything else. Not a total failure, I did get all the existing minis I pledged for, but there's been no mention of the ones I'm waiting on since the Kickstarter ran.

 

Refunded:-

Spoiler

Etherfields:- Got my Wave 2 stuff refunded. They looked like nice minis but I've barely touched the ones I already have.

 

The Isofarian Guard:- Full refund. I kind of regret not sticking with this one as it was looking like a nifty game.

 

Batman - The Animated Adventures:- Full refund. Wasn't too happy with how this one was going any ways.

 

Doing well on not pledging to any new Kickstarters, it hasn't been that hard though, nothing has really grabbed me in ages. At this point unless Twisted or (because I'm a big idiot) Kingdom Death do another one I think that's it for me.
