Mass confusion on shipping already. Two of us in the UK got completely different totals.

 

EDIT:

For reference; you need to go to their store (linked on the front page of the kickstarter), create an account, add the reward you want to the cart and select the Kickstarter delivery option which will give you the price in euros. Convert that to Canadian dollars to get the postage cost to add to your pledge amount.

For the UK it was $56 CAD for the everything set.

Over 500 backers, and rapidly approaching $100k. I hope they planned for rousing success...

 

I've put this as a "remind me," and I'll check back next month, after the holidays, in time for the finish. It certainly looks awesome, but the greater their success the more difficulties they're going to encounter. Fingers crossed.

This might be a weird / obvious question...but do we have any confirmation of what language is this going to be printed in?

 

I want to delve into that site, read as much as I can...and its not in English, so I have no idea what I would receive.

 

The ad is in English. The Kickstarter listing is in English. All graphics are in English....but maybe I don't know enough about the company or something??

 

I have been waiting on this one for a while, and absolutely want to back it....but I want to receive a game that I can read. :)

 

As soon as I get that confirmation, I'll be pledging.

 

My poor wallet. :(

I'm sure there is a perfectly good reason for a Spanish company to run their Kickstarter in a currency that about three people not living in a frozen wasteland are actually intimately familiar with.

 

I'm also sure there is a perfectly good reason for having a "shipping calculator" that requires a registration.

 

Given the overall level of professionalism they've displayed so far, I'm starting to have serious doubts they'd actually have sorted out the legal side of offering this product internationally...

Thank you, Nocturne. :)

 

Had to translate...BUT......

So, they are calling Heroquest "abandongame" (below the stretch goals), seemingly as a portmanteau of abandonware. Is this a translation problem, or are they seriously saying that they are pursuing this project without dealing with GW, Hasbro (MB), or the original designer?

I'll preface this with: I am not an expert on international distribution laws - and what I say below is from memory cause I read it a while back.

 

They've said they got the rights to distribute in Spain, while they can sell online to anyone (they just can't distribute worldwide).

 

They did use footage from the original commercial, that should be a colossal trademark infringement if a lawsuit was to take place, I'd say that would trigger it.

They say they have the rights from Hasbro Spain. Which I expect means, within Spain, they have the full rights (except to GW IP, which means pretty much just the Fimir). See, the thing is, I'm pretty sure it's a Hasbro product, not GW. And Hasbro likely has subsidiaries all over the place to optimise their position WRT local laws, taxes and duties. So the whole deal sounds quite plausible. And this particular minis co has been around a while, so it's not a straight up con.

 

Could still be a screw-up, though.

      Hold on to your butts...
       
      This thread is going to be sizable because I'm starting my HeroQuest core box (Mythic Tier).  The expansions will get their own threads, which should be much shorter (as there are far fewer minis).
       
      I've already started painting and have (nearly) completed many doors, and made significant progress on the bookshelves and cabinet.  In an effort to get me to finish Tyrants of Lothal (an ongoing issue), I am forcing myself to complete the boring scenery elements first.  Which means doors.  Lots of doors.  And, when you've finished with the doors, you realize that you need to do some more doors.
       
      Where's Jim Morrison when you need him?
       
      Except as noted, the paints on the scenery are Delta Ceramcoat.  No exceptions yet, but maybe on the bookshelves...
       



       
       
      I would like to take this opportunity to not thank the individual that decided we needed vines on the doors.  It doesn't really show in the pictures, but I've used a medium green (Medium Foliage Green, to be specific) on some of the vines.  Khaki has been used on the others.  I have another door or two that were trimmed from the pictures, but you get the idea.  The stone has been set up with Black, Charcoal, Deep Taupe, Rain Grey, and White.  Start iwith Black, Charcoal or Deep Taupe and then work up through the next two colors with a solid drybrushing.  So much drybrushing.
       
      And still eight doors to be done.
       
      I felt that I needed something a little more interesting than simple stone for the keystones, and since this is a magical realm I figured that maybe a mad wizard might have spells worked into the doors to keep him informed of what has happening and give him a chance to taunt the heroes at inappropriate times--just like Zargon's twitter feed.  So I decided to use Gold instead of more black/grey stone.   I am looking for a good metallic on the iron bands and rings.  Silver is just too bright.  The wood was done with yet more drybrushing.  Starting with a base of either Black, Chocolate Cherry, or Burnt Sienna and then working up eventually to Golden Brown or Khaki.  It seems to work pretty well.
       


       
      The same theory from the doors works with the bookshelves and cupboard.  I'm thinking about using some color on the scroll work--some sort of gilding, maybe.  The hinges and handles on the cupboard will get a similar treatment to the hinges and handle on the doors--once I figure out exactly what that is.
       
      I'm about nine hours into the doors, and three into the bookshelves and cupboard.
       
      Now to finish some of these doors so I can work on some of those other doors.

      I'm in love with this mini, that retro feel it has is just great!
      I had a lot of fun painting it and tried being bold with the basing 
      Really happy with how it turned out

      It's been a while but finally got my Orc Horde done from Heroquest!

      Since HeroQuest was one of my gateways into miniatures, I felt it appropriate to pay homage to that when I got Dungeon Saga.

      The freehand on the wizard came out better than I'd expected.
