IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

Just a guess here, but looking at that last map, it looks like Reaper might be priming us to hot a solid $3 mil.

 

My feeling is they are preparing for pie.

   This is from before the Lost Valley completed, but...

 

 

All you have to do is work out from previous KSes what the various sizes cost in retail and you should be good to go.

 

I have not gone through and attempted to take a guess at what their current retail cost would be. But I can tell you for everything, even the lost world prior to unlocking, is cheaper than it would be at retail. 

 

I was worried for a moment when I first broke apart chronoscope. But then I realized I was still dividing $100 by the total number of size units and not $50. Halved the prices immediately right there.

Raptors!

 

It is always a great feeling to see something hit the Kickstarter that you have been wanting. Raptors are one I have asked for since KS1...albeit I did specify halfling riders, but that seems overly picky at this point.

For reference, typical Bones human-sized figures seem to run about $2.79 each. Using Thes's calculations, medium-sized figures in Core are running on the order of $0.53 each, which is to say, just under 20% of retail. Even the Chronoscope expansion is running at right about 40% of eventual retail price.

 

Money spent today is worth more than money spent in 18 months (because if you've spent it, you can't earn anything with it). But there's a fair chance that figures in 18 months will be more expensive as well.

 

I make this as a rockin' deal, which isn't a surprise to anyone who has gone in on the previous projects, but might not be so apparent to a new backer.

 

YMMV, obviously.

 

NB: Other assumptions result in somewhat different numbers, btw. If you don't like these, you can certainly use your own.

Alright, who's going to be the first to put googly eyes on the Gazebo?

 

Pfft, I'm going to sculpt a whole scary face that I can whip out and tack on after it turns out to be a mimic! 

 

Huzzah!

So with less then 2 days left, the core set broke out and NO NEW reveal (which should have been core), is core set done? And just add-ons at this point?

No, they will still add to Core from the hints dropped.

 

But Reaper only reveals what they expect to unlock. So they scale it back until they are only showing 2 stretch goals ahead. Saturday they'll probably be down to showing only one stretch goal at a time.

So, my little 2-year old niece is just CRAZY about dinosaurs. 

 

I showed her the pictures of the Triceratops and the dinos in the Lost Valley expansion, and she got SUPER excited! 

 

...Yeah, I'm going to be adding all of the dinosaurs now. I couldn't resist! NieceBoot used Adorable Excited Face! It's super effective! :lol:

 

Huzzah!

      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
