I might have to cut Dreadmere from my pledge... this whole thing is getting expensive fast.

 

Although once I get the KS then I won't need to buy miniatures for a long time!

 

the way im figuring it pledge as much as you can without it hurting you, then you have 11 months, which is 44 or 22 checks to add small amounts until the july end date of the pm even if you only add 5 dollars per pay check thats either an extra 220-110 to your pledge which can get you alot of extra minis

 

atleast this is my plan

It went by in the middle of the missing image mishap without any fanfare,  but kudos to all for reaching and passing page 400 of this thread! 

 

Outstanding!!

Now, only 594 more to go. Post, people, post!!

 

...etr, PLEDGE!! I meant pledge!!

 

Do both! Pledge, then post about it.

 

 

If my math is correct (and it's probably not:lol:) $600 will get me one of everything I want.

Of course, there's at least a couple things in the core I want more than one of....

And....

 

Oh boy. This might get expensive. :blink:

This is what I plan on trying for but the unfortunate thing is that I only get paid once a month <_<

 

But the PM won't close until after tax return time :lol:

Your math might be correct... Until the next reveal!

I hope the pace starts picking back up. The CDN problems last night seem to have really crippled the KS's momentum. :(

What does CDN stand for ?

 

Are they allowed to extend for a day or two to make up for the technical glitch Time? (I am guessing not.)

MOAR POSTALINGS!!!!

 

Yeah, I have several things I wanted to get multiple of... and then Lost Valley came along and I currently dropped them all back to singles.  

I'm sure in the next few days there will be further cuts made as I carve out more room.

CDN = Content Delivery Network

Basically a distributed caching layer so that you grab images from servers geographically close to you as opposed to the main webserver. Reduces load on the main webserver as well as making pages (usually) load faster for you.

As much as I want this to be a great Campaign I don't want them to extend it. I'm driving 4+ hours to get to the send off party at Reaper HQ.

 

Many Brownie Points died to give us this trip... :)

Even if they could my guess is they would not with the party already planned for Sat.

I wonder how it works on a technical side. It's all authomatized, when it reaches certain reward authomatically unlocks the next one, but is there someone taking decisions according to the numbers or other stats? particularly these last days. 

Reaper seems to be overwhelmed with all this. The 25th anniversary miniature for september apparently giving problems, the new releases announced for August 28th not beeing released yet... 

 

Since Bryan is making an effort to be awake for each goal achieved I am going to guess and say he is doing it manually.  I believe KS has an option to do it automatically, but that is not what Reaper is doing this time. 

 

It may feel overwhelming, but they have handled 5 other Kickstarter projects, and something like a problem with a new mold is a mere hiccup to the company.  I am confident, having dealt with the company and the people behind it for years, that all is well in hand.

      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.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      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
