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.

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 gang of ten 28mm bandits, thugs and ruffians for all of your fantasy miniature games.
       

       
      Already funded in less than 2 hours.
       
      I really like what Midlam generally does and I happen to need bandits, so i’m probably going to get them all 10 (well, 11 as they always add another mini as a stretch goal). They also allow people to get 9 other bandits from their range as an add-on.

      This KS is now live.  URL: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/450703636/battletech-clan-invasion
       
      Catalyst Game Labs will be launching a Kickstarter project for a Clan Invasion box set for BattleTech on July 17, 2019.  This was announced on the BattleTech forums about two weeks ago.  I've copied the announcement below:
       
       

      In 3050, the true heirs of the lost Star League thunder forth from the depths of the far Periphery and carve deep into the quarreling Successor States. As the Clan juggernaut rolls across the coreward realms of the Inner Sphere, the House Lords scramble to shore up their defenses and devise some way to halt the invaders.
       
      The Clan spear is aimed at the heart of human-occupied space. Do you possess the bold tactics and heroic courage to defeat warriors trained from birth to conquer? Or will you uphold Kerensky’s dream to cast aside the squabbling lords of the Inner Sphere and reignite the flame of the Star League?
       
      Hot on the heels of the wildly successful launch of two new boxed sets, the BattleTech tabletop game comes to Kickstarter for the first time ever to unleash totally remodeled Clan and Inner Sphere ’Mechs on your gaming table. Utilizing the same process that modernized the nine BattleMechs found in those bestselling box sets, each ’Mech has been painstakingly re-imagined, holding to the spirit of their original design while embracing a modern aesthetic. (Click on the images to enlarge.)

      The Clan Invasion box set will add five popular Clan OmniMechs to your arsenal, including the seminal Timber Wolf (Mad Cat). It will also include a bevy of support materials, the rules needed to play Clan technology, all new maps, and more.
       
      Stretch goals will rapidly fill the ranks with more Clan and Inner Sphere ’Mechs boasting all-new looks. The Clan Command Star expansion will include the devastating Dire Wolf (Daishi) and the ever-popular Shadow Cat, while the Clan Attack Star pack will contain the Warhawk (Masakari) and Nova Cat. Meanwhile, the Inner Sphere will take desperate action to try to stave off the invasion. The Inner Sphere Command Lance pack will deploy the beloved Marauder and Archer, while the Warhammer and Phoenix Hawk will hot-drop from the Inner Sphere Battle Lance pack. And there’s more to unlock on both sides!

      Add-ons will include a plethora of exciting new BattleTech merchandise, the latest rulebooks, sourcebooks, boxed sets, and more!

      About
      Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      By pledging to this campaign, you are stating that you have read and understood all terms and conditions described therein and are accepting them. Therefore, all subsequent interactions with Greebo Games regarding this pledge will have to take this fact into consideration 
      In order: Comparative size between physical prodotypes - Digital Paint for Karimat Blitzer - Karimat's physical prototypes Those who pledge to the project will have a team made of several exclusive miniatures, and these will never be available in the store. This might sound peculiar, since most “KickStarter exclusive” pieces are not part of the teams per se, but rather, optional miniatures, or less important ones. What we’re talking about here, fellas, is giving each backer limited edition models. Later on, people will find different ones in the store, and they won’t simply be mirrored versions, or the same model with an added shoulder pad: they’re going to be different pieces, with different poses and clothed differently. Our goal is to create something that will be more precious, and largely exclusive for our backers, but something that will also retain its price – and that’s why you won’t find any miniatures with outrageous price tags on them, “cause hey, they’re limited edition!”. Nope:  the price will stay exactly the same. 
      Will it be worth it to wait more time in order to be sure to receive a custom team, made of detailed pieces created by talented sculptors, with limited edition models, dedicated stretch goals expressly for gaming purposes (as opposed to “stuff to collect dust on top of a shelf”), for the price of a KickStarter campaign that will surely not be the same of the team in the store?
      The choice is entirely up to you all

      I don't think word got around - which is a damned shame, the minis look wonderful.
       

       

       

       

       
      We will be going in for a rulebook and a pirate band each - Megan going for dwarfs while I take the undead.
       
      At $4,589 of $9,944.
       
      We have the dwarfs from their previous KS - and they are very nice -

       
      The Auld Grump - because who wouldn't want a dwarf pirate wench?

      Nocturna is getting on the new paint band wagon. These seem to be a different line than their already existing paints collaborated with Vallejo. Plus some new figures. Wooo.
