Hellboy Boardgame kickstarter by Mantic

They are going to drive me nuts with updates.  One a day is fine. 

 

This is the big rush through stretch goals in the first 48 hours.  Once the flood of pledges levels off, it'll probably be one a day for a while, I'm sure.

 

Personally, I like that they did a "Pancakes" Hellboy figure.

And man it is a month long Kickstarter.  I forgot you could do those.  Most pledges come in at the very beginning and very end.

Does anyone have experience with Mantic shipping to Canada?  I'm concerned about this statement near the bottom of the page:

 

"See below regarding import duties and taxes."

 

There is nothing about import duties and taxes below that, that I can see.  Just shipping costs.

 

Under the 'Terms and Conditions' section near the very bottom of the page it says: "By pledging on this Kickstarter you agree that will pay for any shipping and any import or other duties required in your country."

 

That's all it says regarding import duties and taxes, which probably isn't terribly helpful. -_-

 

Even if the minis turn out just okay, I'll still be happy to own them. Because Hellboy. ^_^ It's been quite awhile since I last read one of the comics, though, so Krauss' appearance took me by surprise. I love the look of him in the movies and forgot that the original version looks a bit different (particularly the head). 

 

Huzzah!

Latest update says "Firstly, we just wanted to pop in with some good news for our Canadian backers. Towards the end of last week we've secured a partner to handle a Canadian shipping hub. We realise it can often be expensive to ship items into Canada so we're delighted to have this in hand. Please spread the word Canadian backers and let your fellow country people know the good news."

 

Great to hear because I am very excited about this project and hope they don't drop the ball on the final miniatures.

 

Also, coming soon: MEXICAN WRESTLERS.

They've got Baba Yaga coming up if they hit 1 million pounds, which will go nicely with her house which is coming from Reaper Bones 4.

About a Third come in at the start, and about a third come in at the end.  The other third happen in between.

It doesn't seem to matter how long the kickstarter is- you can usually get a pretty good prediction by tripling the initial spike.

There are kickstarters that don't follow this pattern, but most of the big board game kickstarters fit pretty nicely into this predictive model.

Well an official answer for the scale question (and not what I expected)

8725f0cf6e1ba91a30e3036bde6a22b4_original.png?w=680&fit=max&v=1526562643&auto=format&lossless=true&s=837d4658e68c575db0835e6ea27849d3
The miniatures in Hellboy: The Board Game are 35mm scale. Here's a line-up to show how they stack up against one of our 28mm scale Star Saga Marine.

a bit disappointing (not so much the 35mm scale, but the 'human' Nazis seeming to be a bit oversized even for that)

time for a bit of a value rethink based on new info

Thanks for posting that.

I think this decides it for me.

 

While there's a few minis I really like, there's an awful lot I'm meh on or simply dislike.

Plus the gameplay doesn't seem like what Im looking for.

What do you mean 35mm scale? Those are just 25mm super heroic scale minis.

Even at this size I would still really want to get hold of the "Original Hellboy" and "Horned Hellboy" in resin. I'll keep my eyes out on it in case they change their mind about those resin packages.

Hellboy (and all non-human stuff works fine whatever),

 

its just going to be the Nazis and presumably the BPRD agents that may be a bit big, although it's always going to be tricky to tell until you see how much shrinkage happens in the casting in PVC

 

If you want Hellboy (£7) & Horned Hellboy  (no doubt it would be the same) the 4 hellboy pack in resin (£20) begins to look worth having

      Main Game ($80)

       
      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

       
      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.
      Basically a Tweaked version of Arcadia Quest designed to run faster and be easier to set up, with Sci-Fi-ification

      About
      The Edge: Dawnfall is new miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms for 1-4 players. It was created by Michał Oracz (man behind 13 years of Neuroshima Hex and recent hit Cry Havoc) and it brings next level of competitive gameplay to the table. Fresh, exciting, pure and rewarding.
      It’s a living organism with a very passionate community. It’s thousands of hours of development, hundreds of unique art pieces, over hundreds of pages of rich and unique campaigns, 7 extremely asymmetric and unique factions and finally and most importantly a fast, dynamic and very exciting skirmish game with tons of cinematic skills and turn the tide moments.
      This is a second Edge the Boadgame Kicstarter, a reprint of our naive 2016 kickstarter promise of an unreasonably high amount of content that not only we still managed to reach, but even overdeliver. It’s our biggest and most ambitious project yet, it’s our favorite child, our blood tears and sweat. It’s a Beast!

      Remember this thread?
       
      You know, the Yedharo/GT project that was cancelled and they said they'd reluanch it?
       
      Well they relaunched it.
       
      There's a lot less units this time and far more characters (some of whom appear to have been inspired by the Atlantis Dwarfs or are attempting to copy their success but with a Yedharo/GT spin on it).
       
      I might jump in for a small handful of character models but I won't go in big on this one. Then again why would dwarfs go big? They're small. It's one of their defining features :).
       
      'cause Atlantis did dwarven women with shaved sides and some goat riders......
       

       
      He's baaaaack!
       

       
      She got off the goat
       

       
      Hammer Man is back again
       

       
      Apparently she's really "Busty"
       

       
      At least the leaping Trollslayer is back again :)
       

       
      Mr Ugly Sword is back again (don't know why).
       

       
      I like this new hammer man
       

       
      The ugly rectangular shield unit with hammers is back (the only returning unit).
      They really should've fixed those shields and the "3rd edition/Dragonpunk helmets".
       

       
      The Bloodbowl team is back as well (obviously).
