Well, neverminid. I can't get in at the tier I want, since I guess they're not using USPS and flat-rate shipping.

 

I'm "international" now? Keen.

You can pledge and have them shipped to me. I will then ship them to you however you wish.

 

This is a legitimate offer, not a joke. I'm in Southern California.

I was wondering if there was SOME way to mark them in a permanent way.  The reason I ask is that we often stop gaming in the middle of a battle and having the squares or hexes numbered help keep track of where people are until the next week (or many weeks) session.  Then I could label each map with a unique letter, and then number the hexes and squares on each.  That let's me say the cleric was at B56, the fighter at A24, etc.

 

I asked them the question of course and will see what they reply.

What about using a sticker or post it with an arrow?

Well, their demonstration of using wet erase, dry erase and permanent marker on the same tile shows that this should totally work. He was able to remove one (and only one) type of ink at a time depending on method (dry cloth, wet cloth and cloth/rubbing alcohol).

 

I get more and more excited about these...

Yes, the demo video really make it quite clear how easy it would be to use various marker types and only erase the one you want to.  This looks better and better and something I needed years ago!

Contact the creator. They respond quickly to email and may be able to help clarify things.

This kickstarter project is impressive. I'm tempted to pledge, but I'm afraid of unknown companies now. XD

Kickstarter is a dangerous place. I consider all pledges to be lost money until fulfilled. That said, it's pretty clear they have a product, which gives them a leg up on most of the vaporware out there.

Yeah the whole "we're not businessmen" bit in the intro made me wary as how this thing has taken off

I've only been burned once in over 45 projects. Admittedly, that Once was a new company from a dude in his house, but several of the others have been, too, and they delivered.

 

Am I confident that this will go of without a hitch? Not in the least. I expect delays problems, corrections, confusion.  But I see a TON of working prototypes, which means they at least somewhat know what they are doing. The one fail I backed didn't have a prototype and half his problems stemmed from his process of trying to actually get one.

 

Am I confident that this will eventually deliver? Yes. And that's the difference.

I'm not sure I'm confident, per se. But I judge the risks to be reasonable for the reward, which worked out to a pledge for me.

 

So that might be a distinction without a difference.

My biggest concern about this project is that he's not charging enough.  I was actually thinking of asking a question about it but I thought it might seem rude.

That is one of my major concerns. Average per tile for one of the lower pledge was $2.50. I'm curious if it's that low because they can mass produce. But then, Bone miniatures came out to around 44 or 42 cents a miniature in the first kickstarter.

The tiles start at $3/each at the lower levels down to $2.25 per tile at the top end.

 

I'm fairly confident in this project since, as he explained in the video, he already got with the manufacturer, got the item just as they desired it made and worked out with the manufacturer just what was needed (money wise) for a large production run. It's a fairly straight forward project and it appears they've done their homework. I'm even more confident, in fact, with the fact that he's talking about the terrain stickers as a follow on project instead of getting over-confident and trying to promise the world in this one go.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
