So it is $150.00. No early birds. Will sit back a while and decide. So far looks nice but I don't plan on playing the game, and so don't really need that many human troops.... though on the other hand, Pathfinder Bestiary 6 introduced "troop" rules, so maybe I do have a use for them...

I don't know if I'd ever have time for the game part. Still, ~100 figures for that cost is pretty good. And I'm a big fan of pre-assembled. 

 

Also still waiting on a paycheck. I will keep oodling this and decide later.

As said before: I don't care about the game (despite being a huge fan of the books). I am interested in miniatures. $150 and $30 for shipping ... $180. Over 100 miniatures, but as far as I can see not a lot of diversity (and a number of - to me - plain boring sculpts). Waiting for Massive Darkness (and Rising Sun and Green Horde)- CMON milking their business model as much as they can ... I think I'll sit this one out and drop my money on Bones IV.

I'm in so far.  I don't need KS exclusives, just some solid added value over the next couple of weeks to justify the staggering price tag on this project.    I also skipped all those other Cmon projects  (MD, RS, Z:GH) so I could justify this if it rolls out the bling.

 

I do like the miniature designs although they are pretty different from the Dark Sword GRRM series.  The rules book gives some good detail images.

I like Darkswords minis but I prefer their more fantastical sculpts. I'd rather spend the money on finally acquiring some of those that are on my want list.

 

Plus I already have several armies worth of minis already and a ruleset I'm happy with.

 

I can see this being a good entry point set for a novice war gamer though.

This game just comes way too late.

If I didn't already have my Dark Elves to play with I would actually be interested, being a GoT fan.

 

I also wonder if there's still room for a playerbase for this game.

These days the market is really saturated with so (too) many wargames already.

I'm sure if I were a Song of Ice and Fire fan or looking for a miniatures wargame, I'd pick this up. Hand of Glory hit my wallet, and Reaper is coming.

 

Reaper's core has the best price per mini and sculpt. Some of the add-ons are just crazy and impossible to find at their prices elsewhere. Also, of course, Reaper is reliable, so I don't have trouble dropping the most money on their KS compared to other KS I've backed. (Hand of Glory, at least, theoretically replaces 27K of miniatures, and comes down to a third of a cent per theoretical replacement!)

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
       
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
       
      Thanks for having a look!

      Another Rum & Bones pirate painted up for you.

      This is Captain Sarah Kale from the Mercenary Heroes #1 expansion set.  She's packing heat and is destined to serve as the gunner in my nautical campaign.  You can see more pirates and read more about this explosive lady in my Dark Tide WIP thread here.
       


      Like I said last time, CMON minis have a lot of character which can be a blessing or a curse, but here it works really well.

      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?
