Congratulations, Confrontation backers.

 

You won't get your mini's, but you'll be happy to hear you'll be paying Stellar's legal bills. Oh, and the salary of the SD folks.

I'm thinking it might be time to do a bit of sympathy shopping over on the Cadwallon site...

You know, I actually thought the same thing. I'm more inclined now to increase my pledge in the Kickstarter rather than lowering it because of this if it turns out that the SD-team is behind this.

 

According to the creators of the KS they were not involved with Cadwallon other than to sell their miniatures through the Cadwallon web store.

 

The first day of the KS there were a couple people giving the creators a hard time about selling through Cadwallon.  Saying that Cadwallon were recasting Confrontation sculpts without permission. But the creators insisted that they had nothing to do with Cadwallon and knew nothing of their business practices. 

 

But if the creators of the KS turn out to be Cadwallon then I would be hesitant to shop over there as they said that Cadwallon was not associated with LoS or the KS.  Unless I'm miss understanding you and you're saying Cadwallon is the real victim from LoW and SD. 

 

Can concept art be considered IP?  Just seems like creators probably have hundreds of drawings for concept when creating a game. Seems like most miniatures probably could be considered violating IP on concept art. 

 

Still hope LoS is legit and this comes back!  Doesn't look like too many have bailed yet... Knock on wood!

I'm no lawyer, but if somebody paid an artist to make concept images for them and the artist exchanged that art for money, then...yes? The problem would be proving that the new minis where based on it. Hard to prove unless they have the original art and can connect the mini artist to it.

This claim was apparently placed on the 9th so while the timing might look suspicious it could be coincidental.

 

That sounds even more fishy. When I first read about this and the possibility it was the Confrontation people, I thought they would be better served if they did this before their project ended, hoping people would flee this ks for theirs. But since it happened after theirs ended, they don't stand to gain as much. With the news the claim was placed a week before theirs ended, this seems like a much more likely scenario.

 

I hope this whole thing gets sorted out without too much fuss. This could end up killing this kickstarter and company even if they have done nothing wrong. Lost backers, potential legal battles, a small company might not survive.

Soooooo glad to see this back!  Can't wait for the official update from them, and what plans are such are. 

 

Such a pity that $20k or so in people have dropped...  But should come back readily ^_^

I'm super excited!  Glad they extended the campaign too I'm still trying to decide if I want to get this or go all in on Limbo.

It's actually impressive that they didn't lose more. They've got a lot of faithful backers (myself included).

I'm curious how many backers even noticed. I sometimes back a ks, and unless it's active here, only really notice when there is an update. I do check backed projects every couple weeks around payday just to make sure there are no forgotten surprises, but otherwise depend heavily on project updates. This was a little different for me in that I joined the FB page for the early bird option though.

 

They have shared some pics on the fb page while this thread was locked.

Nice looking archer wip:

And a painted version of the crouching wulfen, I think she looks even better painted, I thought she looked a bit misshapen in the original render:

And a mysterious* WIP:

*Kidding, it's totally another wulfen.

I stuck around too, mostly because the game and minis are already finished to a large portion and because they did a good job communicating during the freeze over Facebook. I'm glad the extended the time since I may have backed another project or too in the meantime xD

      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.

      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).
