Or find someone you trust that is already pledging and see if they will add it on for you....

That's a good idea but unfortunately none of my friends are into games or miniatures so I know no one getting the game.

I have no experience, but this being completely KS exclusive, I could imagine the prices on ebay being quite high.

You might be right about that.  Maybe I should get the core game and the add-on and then just sell the core game and make a profit and get the figures I want :B):

My experience has been that CMON Kickstarter Exclusives are quite valuable at retail.  I made back more than what I put in for "Blood Rage" by selling some of the KS monsters, and I made rent by selling "Dave the Geek" from Zombicide 1.

Is that still true for their later releases? Blood Rage caught BGG unaware. At the time, Eric Lang's best known game was Chaos in the Old World, whose theme did not appeal to Eurogamers. Dakkanauts have been saying that they're not making as much money as the earlier days.

I think part of the problem is the over-saturation of Kickstarter exclusives they put out.  The Zombicide stuff had a lot of obvious homages as KS exclusives (and was also before anyone expected a KS game to get as big as it did).  The Blood Rage stuff sold for quite a bit, but no where near as crazy as hundreds of dollars for a single new character.  I've only tried to flip stuff from "Blood Rage" and "Zombicide Season 1" so I can't speak to other game's post-KS value.

I just sold a copy of Green Horde and Rising Sun.  It was enough to cover my personal copies of each game and still make a little cash profit. Maybe could have made more by piecing them out but I didn't want that much work and  really just wanted my copies to be free so I accomplished that. 

 

It was nice too since I backed GH and RS through my FLGS so I don't have to pay for any of the copies till I pick them up.  If I can back Hate through them again then I will probably get a couple of copies. If not, I think I'll pass.

It will be interesting to see what happens with this game. Unlike previous CMON games this one won't be available at retail. So it's possible the core game could be more valuable, but it's also possible no one will be looking for ks exclusives, since people picking up the game from ks will likely have grabbed any extras they really wanted.

I could see this one going going either way, but I'm planning to take the risk that this will do well on the secondary market.  But really, my hope is to just be able to pay for my own copy.  Where I really think I might make some cash is on a game called Middara...delivering this summer.

 

But back on topic, will be interesting to see what comes after they finish this current tribe.  The last 2 warriors are almost unlocked and then it's just the prince left, I think.  And the 48 hour mark is coming up fast.

I just read on Beasts of War- a commenter claims the "Must buy core set" policy has changed:

As of January 16th that ( the FAQ ) changed. You can now put down a few dollars and will get access to the PM :D . It’s what i’ve done.

 

 

I suspect that this will lead to many more sales of Vore Nash minis.

Is it bad that this Kickstarter makes me want to try and sell off my Zombicide: Season 1 stuff?

From the FAQ posted the same day and time.

 

Can I make just a $1 pledge now?
You can make a $1 pledge now, and when the Pledge Manager goes live after the campaign has ended you can add more funds to get a full pledge and any add-ons you'd like.

 

Can I purchase just the optional buys?
No. A full Tyrant pledge is required to purchase any optional buys.

So... CMON just added another complete tribe to the core set.  All in all, there are going to be 102 minis for $120.  I think that's reasonable per mini, but have to agree that many look the same-ish.  I'm still in, but kind of reconsidering if I want to get extra stuff to sell.  Thinking about it.

      Someone in a podcast I listen to (an actual play d&d weekly affair, if I remember correctly) has this rpg based on 80s video nasties. It sounds intriguing and fun.

      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.

      Atlantis Miniatures is dropping a new Kickstarters campaign next week.  Looks like ogres this time. 
       
      I have yet to get anything from them but I might have to bite this time as I've heard great things.

      The kickstarter is Live:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/163050832/animal-companion-miniatures-by-critit?ref=category_newest&ref=discovery
       
      They don't seem to have anything on Kickstarter yet, their Facebook site says they launch on October 1st. It'll be one all-in pledge for the 10 starter minis & everything afterward will be an included freebie. Looks like some cool sculpts; I'll be interested as to what the pledge will be.

      About
      The siblings  of conflict are here!
      Attack! this interstellar army of hardboiled girls are ready to conquer your tabletop! Assemble unique squads with powerful weapons, led by brave leaders. They're cute, they're rowdy, they are the siblings of conflict!
      STRETCH GOALS
      We're planning amazing, unique hero characters, and more! Surprises await! New Stretch Goals will appear as the campaign advances!
      Chibi miniatures!
      Chibis are adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia.
      This is the NINTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with  Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Siblings of Conflict chibi miniatures along with sci-fi allies & enemies for them to combat!
      The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures.
       The Miniatures    
      ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint).   As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts.  The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible).  
      You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing above.
      Miniature Quality
      While many of the miniatures in this KickStarter will be 3-D printed, the quality will be a very high level since they are 25 to 50 micron 3-D SLA prints which are very different than ABS prints.   Below is an extreme close -up example of a printed figure and how it shows no print lines when primed and painted (with no other prep work).    Many thanks to Yeji Kim for her painting of Vanguard Leader Anna (top row) and Jason Turner for the painting of Vanguard Leader Anna and Vanguard Trooper #3 (bottom row)!
      Shipping   
      Shipping will be charged in the pledge manager after the project.  At this time we are estimating $5 for US backers, $13 for Canada and $17 for Rest of World. Shipping of the KickStarter will be EU Friendly and should not incur any customs fees.
