I backed their first KS ... it was a mixed bag. The price for what I got was very good and what I got was at least ok, some parts were good. But people reported a number of problems (lots of bubbles in the resin, lots of things to clean up because resin spilled out of the mold etc). But I'm willing to back them again, because this looks very nice.

My first thoughts?  I wonder how I could mod that to be taken over by gnolls... Or I suppose orks could steal it too.

Interestingly, in the comments section they've claimed that any stretch goals not unlocked will be available for purchase afterwards separately.

 

Kind of sounds like they don't need our money.

 

Or, to be imaginative and give them the benefit of the doubt, they can afford to make all these pieces anyway and the stretch goals are just to include them in everybody's pledge as freebies. if we want the non freebie stuff (like the work bench at the back of the boat) then we'll have to pay for them.

 

It does make the initial pledge images rather misleading 'though. I'm considering dropping my pledge based on the confusion & the attitude they've expressed in response to criticism. They don't seem to handle criticism well but it's still a good model and I'm very tempted to remain in for it.

I'm going to pass on this one myself.

I was unthrilled both with quality of the last one and their packing job (sacks of resin, loose in a box do not travel well. It's a miracle I only had a couple of pieces arrive damaged).

Heard about the packaging from a number of people ... guess I was lucky, only had one broken part and that was easily glued. In view of the price I paid (especially for that temple ruin), I was quite satisfied. But yeah, I'm not really happy about the way they are handling things (stretch goals included).

Woah. I've backed out now after hearing about the packaging. I'd heard a fair bit about people not receiving rewards from previous campaigns or even people who'd placed orders with them. Orders going missing in the post and then refusing to send out replacements but now, if stuff's going to get broken up because they won't pack it properly then that's too much of a risk for me.

      This small project is to fund a collection of little encounters that can be dropped into an existing adventure for low level adventurers.  I backed his previous project for alternate character backgrounds, and he delivered the PDFs early.

      What are GOAT Dice?
      Polyhedral 20 sided dice that produce a visual swirling effect when rolled. The effect is akin to animation or holographic. Don't believe me? Watch the video!
      Handmade and Artisanal. 
      Each GOAT Dice is produced by hand by one person(me). The process takes 4 days total with many overnight curing processes. The dice are made from resin and secret proprietary ingredients to create the visual effect. 
      Are these dice fair?
      The #1 question asked. The truth is, I don't know, but I think so. I've rolled these dice hundreds of times to shoot the very videos you see here as well as having played with them and they don't seem to be unfair based on my experience. They cannot be tested by the infamous salt water trick because they sink due to their higher than normal weight and density.
      They roll just like any other D20 with one small difference. The inertia from the spinning core causes a drama moment at the end of the roll, sometimes the inertia is strong enough to make the dice flip one more side and other times the inertia is not strong enough and it does a bounce back. This does not effect the randomness, but can create tension. 
      Shipping.
      I've done shipping like this, on a good month working full time I can make 300 total GOAT Dice, so I've split that in half and adjusted the shipping accordingly. The early backers, the first 150 dice, I am expected to get out before the end of December and with any luck delivered before Christmas. Then I batch them into 3 months (450) for each quarter of 2020, so if you miss early backing then your delivery will be targeted for end of march, if you miss March, end of June and so on. Best case scenario all dice are shipped in half the time allotted. When one reward tier is out of stock, another will be added with +3 months on expected delivery. 
       
      GOAT Admirer $1
      You like what you see and want to support this project. You can adjust your pledge at anytime and choose a reward. If you adjust your pledge for a reward, I will do my best to place you in the correct shipping timeline based on your time of pledging. If you want dice, best practice would be to back one of the other tiers. 
      Petting Zoo GOAT $25
      You will receive a single GOAT Dice of your choosing.
      Mountain GOAT $45
      You will receive two GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $22.50 for additional GOAT Dice up to 4, if you want more than 4 you are upgraded to GOAT Shepherd. (you may choose the same color twice or more)
      GOAT Shepherd $95
      You will receive five GOAT Dice of your choosing. Add $18.00 for additional GOAT Dice, no maximum. (you may choose the same color twice or more)

      Midlam always has some very nice sculpts, great castings and timely delivery ... and I do not have enough Hobgoblins ... (i.e. less than 20).

      And lots more ... this is a bad time with Reaper Bones and lots of other interesting projects at the same time. Probably the first time I will take full advantage of every "pledge $1 now and rest in pledge manager" offer possible.

      Not sure if anyone cares, but thought i'd post it in case
       
      well articulated (19 points on average), scientifically accurate action figures of 1/18th Ceratopsians. Not all have been unlocked yet though, and probably won't be before it's done
       
      He has 1 successful kickstarter that he's fully delivered on in a timely manner and came out pretty well
