Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

Recommended Posts

Sounds like resin is scheduled to deliver on time so there is some good news.

 

Unfortunately I am in for a good chunk and I am only interested in the models so hopefully the characters come out unscathed (I thought the troops were the least of all the concepts anyways).  The Veronique figure looks really good though so I am holding out hope!

I backed mostly for the character models, though I really liked a lot of the soldier models. Moving scabbards and such around isn't much of a concern for me, but I guess we'll have to see how satisfied I am of this KS once it finally arrives. There's been times that I've gotten Bones minis that didn't match the previews and were disappointing, hopefully this isn't any more egregious than that. It's nice that they're focusing on reducing the number of molds used for rank and file moreso than the centerpiece miniatures.

That pledge manager is really tempting me. I didn't originally include any of the 75mm resin figures but I might snag one now to use as a giant or something to help support the company. There were a few I really fancied.

I'm not listening....  And isn't there going to be a 1.5 KS  sometime this spring?

What? First thing I've heard about it. I'd better get saving now!

 

Yes Limbo 1.5 is supposed to be Vikings and Dragons I believe.  However, it is most definitely delayed until this one delivers (June-August) and depending on how this one turns out it could be delayed for awhile.

I'm a bit surprised/shocked about their "miscalculation". 80k is no small amount ... their selling point were those detailed, dynamic minis and they repeatedly stated that that's what they would deliver (even had photos of plastic - resin comparisons). I find it a sign of bad preparation to have to tell people months later that the factory cannot produce the minis at a certain price point and that (gu)estimates were 80k off ... and now all bets are off (reduce quality of minis slightly - sword placement does not bother me THAT much, but there are some other changes visible ... even change the manufacturer - but I doubt a cheaper one can produce those minis at the same quality, just at a lower price).

I wonder if it's because of all the extra kickstarter exclusive mini's? I feel like those models really bloated the production costs since many of them were large and very detailed.

I think they should maybe just stick with some resin campaigns on KS for awhile.  Could help them build a fan base so that future board game projects may bring in more money.  

I'll tell you they are walking a thin line right now as many backers backed for the minis so If they mess those up they could be in a world of hurt in future campaigns.

Vikings and dragons? I almost wet myself with excitement!

Now that's a very encouraging photo.

 

Given the size of that drill those are probably the 75mm versions. I really should check that pledge manager to see if I can sneak in a 75mm sculpt or two.

These are not available in Resin.. they might just be larger prints for box art.. 

 

I know but there are 3 of the 75mm resin options that really speak to me. Those would be Godfrey, Rodrigo and Tiriel.

The creator posted a message in the comments page that they now plan to have the miniatures be self assembly.  Which honestly, I think is super cool!  I don't do enough of it and I'm only in for the miniatures so self assembly leaves a lot for conversions.

 

They may get some blow back from it but a lot less than if they would have had they changed the minis or lowered the quality of the minis. 

 

They also acknowledged that this probably won't cover the $80K but that it will help a lot.  I am not sure if they are going to eat the rest of the bill or what they will do to cover the remainder.

      A new kickstarter project from Kev White:
       
       https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/hasslefriesian/artemis-20/description
       
      Don't think I shall be backing this myself as I don't do much that is bigger than 54mm.
       
      This seems to be happening off Kev's own bat and I don't think Hasslefree is involved. Whether that is a good thing or not I leave to your own judgement.

      A bit late, as there's only 21Hours left at this time, but...
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lumir-k-the-one-and-only-cooking-oil-led-lamp/x/10803452#/
       
      I'm at the 'Get 1 Give 1' which means I'm getting one of these weird lamps, and a family without electricity in Cambodia also gets one. 
       
      -----------
       
      Overview Lumir K is a cooking oil powered LED lamp that converts the thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity. ▶Make an Impact- Bring the light to the people living without electricity. ▶1 Lumir K = 100X candlelight ▶Easy to Use-Just placing the lamp over the lit wick will turn the LED light on. ▶Accessible-Olive or canola oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. ▶Instant light-No need of charging or battery ▶Efficient-Consumes the only 5ml of oil for 1 hour of light ▶10-year life span
       
      Small heat energy turns
      the 100 times brighter LED light.

      Less Consumption, Less Emission
       
       

       

      Lumir K converts the small thermal energy of cooking oil into electricity and it turns on the bright LEDs. This amazing lantern will light up where you want and it make an impact on the world where it is needed.
       
       

       
       

       
      From now,
      Cooking oil turns to the power source of your lamp.

       
      Lumir K uses cooking oil to generate electricity.
      Cooking oil is one of the cheapest and familiar ingredients as it is easily found from grocery stores in the city to tiny kiosk shops in a remote area.
      Olive, canola and sunflower oil, it doesn't matter what kind of cooking oil is. Without any batteries or external power supply, only with tiny flame which is as big as candle, Lumir K gives you an instant and 100 times brighter light.
       

       

       
      Lumir K is an easy, accessible and sustainable solution for those who need a light.
      With a goal to light up the world, team Lumir had a successful campaign with our first product, candle powered LED lamp.
      We promised to keep developing solutions for families in the off-grid area and finally came back with Lumir K by improving efficiency and changing fuel as cooking oil.
      Lumir K achieved CE and its core technology is patented. We are happy to share this achievement with you, and we need your support to take one step further.
      Lumir K will brighten up anywhere light needs to touch.
       


      Lumir has been resolving the light shortages and delivering the beauty of light.
      Our journey started from a small but momentous experience during the trip to India, learning that there are so many places around the world suffering from unreliable or no electricity supply.
      Among 1.2 billion who do not have access to electricity, most of them rely on candles or kerosene lamps which is dark, harmful for health and the environment. Using kerosene lamps indoors has the same effect as smoking 40 cigarettes and the cost for fuel takes up even 30% of the household's income.
       
      Instead of unreliable supply,
      Isn't it be possible to maximize the light from a candle or a kerosene lamp?
       
      That was the question that led us to invent Lumir K as an effective solution for the light shortage issue.
      In the case of kerosene lamps, only 10% of the energy from the fuel is used for illuminating because the flame itself is the direct light, and the rest, 90% of the energy is just scattered in the air as a heat. 
      However, Lumir K harnesses the wasted 90% of the heat energy to turn on the LEDs, so it is pretty economical as it provides a brighter light only with a small flame.
       
      LUMIR K can be used anytime and anywhere while solar lamps has a big weather constraints in many areas like Indonesia where the average rainy days are more than 160 days. 
       
      After our first crowdfunding campaign, we became a partner of KOICA, Korean International Cooperation Agency, and Lumir K was piloted in Indonesia.
      Lumir K provides 4.1 times brighter light than kerosene lamps, while its economic effect was also achieved with 80% lower fuel consumption compared to kerosene lamps. It also reduces carbon emissions by about 90%.

      Didn't see a post on this one and it is in the final 24 hours. It is from Mythic Games, the originators of Mythic Battles series. This one is a bit less serious and more along the lines of Arcadia Quest/MOBA comic-fantasy theme.
       
      It is a skirmish game for 2 or 4 players. Miniatures are on 45mm bases and fall in the 32-45mm range. It appears that the bases are pre-sculpted. If MB:P is any indicator, the quality of the miniatures should be pretty solid as well.

      Dwarven Forge is doing a smaller kickstarter in June.  It's a pseudo sequel to their Caverns Deep line (which was their 6th kickstarter, aka KS6), KS6.66 - Hellscape.  This is different than their 7th Kickstarter - Wildlands which will be outdoor themed (trees and such) in Jan 2020.
       
      Many of you have been asking for smaller Kickstarters that are more digestible. So we're going to try it! We are going to launch a small, two-week KS with a limited scope. Best of all, it's happening very soon -- KS6.66 - Hellscape will launch in late June 2019! As the name implies, the lava-based project will focus on the fiery wasteland the fiends of the Nine Hells inhabit. The collection will consist of a small number of new sculpts as well as some repaints of some Caverns Deep pieces.
       

       

       
      EDIT:  It start on June 16th (Father's Day in the US)
