Those Early Bird Jumps are very offputting. Between $325 and $475 for the exact same thing.... I' feel like a chump if I was at the tail end of that personally.

It also suggest that it could be a very expensive game in the end, I didn't even drop $475 on Cthulhu Wars for everything.

Looks like awesome fun but boy it is easy to keep your wallet tucked away when you see that huge early bird versus late bird gap. What, honestly, is the point of doing that for such a small amount of early backers? Creates poor optics.

 

EDIT: maybe it is because people think that the Minecart level is the only way to get stretch goals, when it looks like the Outlaw level should have some too -- although that will remain to be seen.

There's already several stretch goals unlocked that are added into the outlaw level (10 figures and 15 encounter cards) and a few more upcoming ones reviealed (7 figures, 20 tiles). All of the free stretch goals go to Outlaw, the paid add ons are given to minecart for "free".

 

EDIT: Current add ons given to Minecart total $186 for a grand total with games of $336

I think it's safe to assume that even the top level minecart level will still end up with a reasonable discout once everything is in. They've released a few high profile games, I doubt they'd drop the ball on this.

Seeing that ti could cost you in the $500 region for everything on day one though is quiite a psychological barrier. I spent more on Kingdom Death but it worked it's way up there over time.

I went in on the $150 outlaw level. The big controversy about early birds doesn't really bother me since I cant spend the money on the mine cart level anyway.

Some of the figures look pretty nice. I love the sand kraken, and the burrower can be used as a rattler in Savage Worlds Hell on Earth Reloaded/Deadlands.

If I count correctly, there's just 186 dollars' worth of mine car add-ons so far (or 233, if you go by MSRP). So... they give a good deal to early mine cart backers and stagger cost up to where they're (apparently) ripping off the later ones (mine cart 7 is deluxe outlaw + 250, so more even than MSRTP)?

 

That may not be the best way of making yourself look like a honest business, and it certainly does make the negativity in the comments section fairly well-deserved...

Yeah, the $25 increase each wave seems a bit steep, especially when it's so early in the campaign. The 25 people in on that wave 1 early bird mind as well just sit back and watch their investment grow. Essentially, they no longer have to contribute to the KS at all past their initial pledge, since everything in the add-ons (so far) is also included for free in the Minecart (don't type Minecraft...don't type Minecraft) pledge.

 

Bit weird, if you ask me, since I'd want people adding add-ons into their pledge as the KS progresses. Granted, there's only ~100 backers in the real juicy EB slots. Definitely one to keep an eye on. I don't do either Wild West or C'thulu stuff currently, but the sculpts and designs look excellent.

This will be an interesting one to much, that much is certain. Will it crash and burn because too many people sitting on the overpriced Mine Carts pull out at the end (feeling they're not really getting their money's worth), leaving the company with a ton of achieved unlocks they have to provide to the backers who got the underpriced MCs?

 

Bad thing is you almost have to hope it will - because otherwise, we might see this kind off grossly unfair early bird practice really take off...

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      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
