My wife hasn't asked me that. First, I think, because she sees how insanely happy it makes me; and second, because she immediately goes and buys another houseful of yarn every time I get a delivery. 

I think our wives are kindred spirits.  this was my wife's reaction as well.

 

this KS was full of shock and amazement.  the first half was nice but the last 4 encounters have me just blown away.  they really outdid themselves this time.  I only wish they were not so expensive.  I spent more on the car I drive to work, but not by much. (its not that impressive a car but still...)

The Apex Primordial has convinced me to get the Dreadhollow Adventure Pack, I think. I hadn't planned on it, but... that guy is intense. And big.

I was really hoping for some grass/forest floor terrain trays. Would have been nice for having a nice flat clearing or a field.

Word is there is a strong chance these will arrive in the PM, along with forest banks.

It seems like such an obvious oversight. I look forward to picking them up.

I think the forests probably came last and felt to them somewhat different, so they weren't really thinking in terms of negative space with the forests.  The videos and pics they shot last night using the water trays "outside" with the forest looked awesome. Even better, I think, than they look in the caverns, where they look pretty good.  So far this is the only thing I've really heard bandied about by DF for the pledge manager, so it seems to be the most likely. Every year, at least a small handful of new things appear there. We'll see.

Got my pledge manager email and trying to decide about what to get. Stuff escalated in price pretty quickly. I'm wondering about how people value time over the extra cost of pre-painted.

Does it delay shipping at all to get painted stuff?

I'm planning on a few things a la carte. Minimum for my must buys painted would be 120 incl shipping.

Stairway to Violence, Natural Bridge, Webbed Lair adventure pack, Cave Pool pack

Unpainted vs painted would cost about 75$ more

Stuff is big, but there's not many pieces to paint.

Looking for people's experiences as to value.

I have always gone unpainted. I am hoping to convince myself to go painted this time. It doesn't add to shipping time...and is table ready out of the box.

still waiting on my pledge manager.  It will get there eventually.  I know what I want so there should be no surprises. (please let there be no surprises, I really don't need an excuse to spend more money...)

I received I my invite yesterday also.  So far I’m sitting st the adventure essentials 1-6.  I’d like to put more in as I don’t have a lot of caverns yet, but I have other expenses coming up.  I’m hoping to be able to upgrade to the 1-11 or 1-9 pledge before the manager closes.

 

edit:  I didn’t mention, I’m going all unpainted. I got almost everything from KS5 unpainted and am pretty much down to doors, encounter specials (like the golems) and the jade shrine.  It’s quite a bit of work to get stuff painted though.

      So I got a newsletter with super early (2020) kickstarter tease (image behind the spoiler).

      Well mostly scenic base.  Made a town centre that will get dressed up as a market once finished. Basing material is foamex with a plastic receipt spool covered in Milliput.  Painted with a mix of craft, PP and GW paints.  Further tinted with a treatment of oils.

      From the team behind hit games Hellboy: The Board Game and Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf’s Kings Quest, League of Infamy is an occasionally co-operative dungeon crawler for up to 5 players, where it pays to commit dastardly deeds and partake in foul thievery – often against your own party.
      Join a rogue’s gallery of misfits, ne’er-do-wells and miscreants on a disgraceful mission to kidnap cute little baby Drakons, steal their eggs and viciously wipe out any irritating, goody-goody Elves that try to stop your nefarious schemes.
      But it’s not just the Elves you’ll need to keep a wary eye on. Your fellow (mis)adventurers are just as likely to betray you and steal your loot, shove you into harm’s way or just leave you in a dungeon full of unbeatable foes. As they like to say in the League of Infamy – ‘keep your enemies close but keep your friends at knifepoint’. 
       
      In the limited edition No Half Measures expansion, you must investigate reports of an ancient form of long-forgotten magic: gastromancy! Deal with halflings as strong as an ogre or tricky traps with toxic poisons. It's not all bad though, because you might come across a tasty pie or two to loot!
      In the Kickstarter Exclusive Siren's Wrath expansion, the League is furious that the Trident Realm is messing with one of its most important trade routes... which absolutely won't do! You're sent in to raid the Trident Realm keep and gather as many goods as you can. However, this will be your hardest mission yet, as the Keep Master takes advantage of the aquatic landscape to boost their Defenders.

      Online, from a certain market of miniatures, I found some "Kaosball" team expansion packs on clearance (for a better price than what they're listed at now, as of this writing).  Each pack contains 13 32mm-scale minis in 2 poses (6 of one pose on 25mm square bases, and 7 of an alt pose on 25mm round bases), a "bust" that represents the "team coach," and a game-specific 12-sided die (which I suppose isn't much use for anything, unless I actually wanted to play the game).  Anyway, this worked out to being under $1 a figure, and the sculpts looked interesting, so I got a few packs.  (I find it hilarious, though, that while most of the packs are marked down, the "Felinia Hellcats" -- scantily-clad gun-toting cat-girls -- are specifically marked as "[CLEARANCE]" and yet they're priced at about 3x the asking price for each of the other teams.)
       
      I originally picked these guys up (the "Samaria Barbarians") with a vague intent that "someday" I would run a Savage Worlds convention one-shot scenario heavily inspired by the "Brütal Legend" video game ... but it occurred to me that few if any of my players would have heard of that game, and I'm no particular "expert" on anything rock-and-roll-related, so maybe I'm not the best person to GM such a setting.

      However, I could always use a few more post-apocalyptic wastelanders.  The "big hair" style here doesn't necessarily look like it would fit the current Fallout aesthetic as established in Fallout 4 and Fallout 76, but I think these guys wouldn't look terribly out of place in the original Fallout 1 & 2 (what with all the "Mad Max" and "Fist of the North Star" wannabes wandering about in those games).  I removed the figures from their bases, putty-and-texture-stamped the 25mm round bases, putty-and-texture-stamped some plastic 25mm rounds for the remaining figures, and did a few hand swaps and bit-add-ons to give a few of the figures visible ranged weaponry.  (I figured that would give me a little more buy-in if I were to field a gang of these guys for an encounter and then they start FIRING on the PCs, versus what pushback I might get if they *appeared* to only be armed with axes.)

      I used some paper printed license plates to add some "junk armor" elements to further reinforce the "post-apocalyptic" vibe.

      Each team pack also comes with a "bust" to represent the team coach.  I went with a bronze-and-verdigris scheme for each.
