Dang there are a couple minis in there that I really like!  But alas I am still waiting for LoW and of course Limbo so I have to sit this one out. 

 

The ones I do like though are Persephone, Atlas, dude on Pegasus, Icarus and Athena.  I don't know about Atlas but I think Reaper sells some minis close to the other ones I listed so maybe I'll just grab them.

I've put it on remind.

 

Was really disappointed I missed it the first time, but I don't think I'll be able to get in on this one either.

can I just say that these minis are without a doubt the best PVC minis I have had the pleasure of owning. Or even seen elsewhere. They are that good. I have the original set with many expansions, and am getting the new stuff this time round.

 

Of course, many of the infantry-size minis suffer a bit from "one piece casting" poses, but the gods and monsters... :wow:

I'd like to get in on this one, but since I've been waiting months for all the stuff they didn't ship (and absolutely no idea when they will get shipped), I'm actually leaning toward just selling the game and being done with Monolith.

 

The game itself is rather fun.  But primarily a 2-player game - despite having options for 3/4 player games.

I have a friend that went all-in on the first campaign, but sold it off due to frustration with Monolith before he even got it. He said he wasn't a fan of the gameplay videos and how Monolith was dealing with things. I haven't had a chance to delve further into that at all. It is interesting that you mention it being fun, though. It has me tempted to seek out gameplay videos, but honestly the frustration with the company has me more than a little hesitant.

So, let me define "fun" a little more.  Effectively, the game comes down to luck of the draw on getting the cards you need/want in order to activate the unit(s) you want to.  But at the same time, you can't be too aggressive in playing cards out of your hand or you then end up with only being able to draw and play a single card each turn.  That can be desperately frustrating.  The mechanics themselves are easy enough, but as normal these days there are a plethora of special abilities to try and keep straight.  You'll also need a fairly sizable table to put the board and all the unit dashboards out.  I don't think it's any bigger than Chthulu Wars though..

 

If I remember correctly, human units are approximately 30/32mm.  The monsters and gods can be MUCH larger, of course.

 

As for my personal frustration, I'm missing somehere around 8 items from my pledge.  I contacted the fulfillment center in February and we got everything logged.  Followed up in late March...got a canned response about how they had the request and it would be processed.  Contacted Monolith directly in late April - no response, but I did get an email from Funagain stating that they were closing up shop and to contact Monolith directly.  An hour later I got another email from Funagain stating that they were, in fact, still handling distribution.  All went silent for about 10 days - when I got another email from Funagain stating that they were no longer handling fulfillment.  A few days later Monolith finally acknowledged it in a KS update and stated that ShipNaked would be handling the rest of the fulfillment (for North America and Japan, anyway).  And that's where we stand.  No idea when I'll actually get those missing (and 1 damaged) items.  My suspicion is that they won't be coming until they get everything reprinted as part of this 1.5 campaign.

I am also concerned how the split with Mythic Games plays into their production options for this round.

Agreed.  And honestly, Batman was a re-skinned version of Conan.  This is a reboot of something that they haven't even completely fulfilled from the first time. And the new models just aren't grabbing me.  And actually, I had a chat with a friend last night and decided that this game is much more about the minis than it is about the gameplay.  Not to mention that it takes up a ton of storage space.  So, off to ebay it will go.

Might many of the problems outlined above have to do with the american shipping partner more than anything else? My own experience with fulfilment of this game is good, but I am in Norway, and so have had to do with the European Pilibert. 

 

I got the main shipment which sadly was missing the "rise of the titans" expansion and a single hellhound from the core box. So I sent a missing items claim to Philibert via the link provided. The forms to fill out were a bit draconic but I do understand why as it reduces the possibility of misunderstanings drastically.

 

Maybe a week or two went by, I got a "please confirm" email which I replied to, and a week or so after that I got the missing items and fulfilment was complete. So that is a plus in my book. Sorry to hear about others having problems here.

 

anyway, I am in it for the lovely, lovely minis, and cannot comment on the gameplay.

      I know there were people on here loving this project when it went live in July.  It got cancelled then, but it's back and could use some support.  Let's get it funded this time around!!!

      They're coming to get you, Barbara...
       
      "Night of the Living Dead: A Zombicide Game, a new standalone addition to the Zombicide franchise, will bring two great horror franchises together. The George A. Romero movie set the standard for zombie movies. Meanwhile, Zombicide set the standard for cooperative zombie-fighting games. Both were filled with groundbreaking innovations. Bringing the two together has brought more innovations to bear. In this article, we’re taking a look at some of the new elements in Zombicide that make it a loving homage to the movie that started it all. ... For example, the game’s tiles recreate not only the interior of the house, but also the surrounding land. Fans of the movie will see that the house has been lovingly recreated in detail and they’ll be able to pick out specific elements from the film on the game board. This recreation has been updated with Zombicide’s usual movement system, with different spaces delineated for gameplay. ... The zombies (or, more appropriately, ghouls) have also been reworked to fit a more Night of the Living Dead feel. Zombicide players will recognize the Walkers and Fatties from previous games, however, they will now have to deal with new threats in the form of Breakers and Ghoul Relatives. Yes, Runners and Abominations have been removed from the game! But players shouldn’t breathe a sigh of relief yet. Breakers can, as the name suggests, break through the barricades that the survivors have created. What was once thought a safe haven will no longer be once a Breaker ghoul has its way. Meanwhile, Ghoul Relatives represent characters that the survivors had once known in life. Their appearance will cause mental anguish to the survivors. It’s not easy to have to shoot someone you’ve known and loved. The addition of these two new ghouls will pose different, and arguably more dangerous, types of threats. Using old tactics will not be feasible in these new games. Forget what you know about Zombicide’s main antagonists." https://cmon.com/news/melding-undead-classics-together
       
      Ghouls, btw, were really what these creatures were called. Zombies wasn't used until later. "For anyone that isn't familiar with the classic 1968 film directed by the late George Romero, Night of the Living Dead never uses the word "zombie," referring to the shuffling, virus-infected living dead as "ghouls" (which is more appropriate, given their hunger for human flesh). The association with zombies largely came from the sequel, Dawn of the Dead (1978), which used "zombie" in place of "ghoul" and which was distributed internationally under the title Zombi. ... Perhaps Romero changed the name because he discovered the word "zombie" in the interim. Ghouls were quite popular across the western world for centuries, or at least since Grimm's fairy tales. But zombies are from Haitian voodoo, and were largely unknown to the public at the time." https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistorians/comments/6ntim5/how_did_the_ghouls_from_night_of_the_living_dead/
       
      CMON's FB page has preview pics and a video overview of the game. : https://www.facebook.com/coolminiornot/
       
      Yes, the KS is coming out right after the Zombicide 2nd edition KS, and in the middle of the holiday shopping season. The game's had delays in development (makes sense, with the most game changes I've seen in a Zombicide game) and, iirc, was meant for retail.
       
      And Barbara, evidently, must be the name of my wallet.

      Hello!
       
      We're back with another small campaign. 9 minis sculpted by Boris Woloszyn, we cast in crisp resin and the whole set is 50USD. (40USD if you pledge during the first 12 hours)
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/barbarians-bards-and-buccaneers
       
      Thanks or having a look!

      I didn’t see this one posted.  This is a small campaign for 2 craggy stone plinths cast in resin for CA$ 34, with a stretch goal of a castle balcony design.  It’s in the last 2 days and very close to funding.

      Our big office project is Car Wars Sixth Edition, a completely new edition of the classic game of autoduelling.
       
      The project launches tomorrow morning and runs through January 6th. We're running pre-campaign stretch goals based on number of followers to this page: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sjgames/car-wars-sixth-edition-by-steve-jackson-games
       
      One last pre-campaign stretch goal remains to unlock. 
       
      Any questions? Please ask away and I'll answer as best I can.
