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.

      Came across this article. Oh to have money, time, and space.

      About
      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.

      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99
