I was expecting to get reeled in, but so far only Hastur tempts me, and looks like it might be retailed in a separate box. Holding off for now, will see how long my resolve holds.

Feeling this as well. For 160$, I think I can hold off until retail if I still want it.

I can't wait to see what people are selling the giant Cthulhu for on eBay!  

 

I think I might try to pick up the Hastur figure of eBay once its out but overall this is an easy pass for me.

You dont get the giant Cthulhu and I think there is some exclusive content as well that you would miss out on. 

 

Looks like they are talking about doing something to make the game content for the giant Cthulhu a separate add on for people who don't want the big mini. Apparently the miniature doubles as the game board for that content so they'd have to do some other game board to make it an add on.

Looking at the mini though, I'm not seeing it.  Sure there's some space around the base of the mini, but his hands aren't out to allow you to put on there, his stance and shape aren't going to allow the investigator minis to rest on him anywhere...  

 

I'm in for now and slowly climbing the pledge levels, one month at a time, but I have a feeling I'm going to drop to the 100 level or all together by the end.  Trying to talk a buddy into pledging for it as he's a huge Cthulhu fan so I can paint some of his minis instead of owning them.

I really don't like how CMON is stretching out the goals on this one.  $170k to unlock Dagon, and then another $90k for cards and tokens.  A quarter of a million dollars for one complete stretch goal is crazy.

You can come to Denver and paint mine! :)

I agree.  This is already a boring Kickstarter campaign.    Which is not to say the game won't be fun.  Certainly bound to be more fun than this project so far.

 

The fact that they decided in advance that it would only be 14 days suggests that they don't have enough fun content to keep the stretch goals popping up regularly.  Zombicide Invader (a meh campaign from my perspective) was 24 days.

 

Zombicide Green Horde (the last cmon campaign I personally backed) was 29 days (twice as long as this!), and managed to get me enthusiastic with the imaginative stretch goals. 

 

The stretch goals so far seem like placeholders to me.   In particular they lack one obvious quality which seems peculiar in its exclusion.  

 

The game is based on the provocative premise that:

 

"Madness is always at your side when battling unthinkable monstrosities from other dimensions. In fact, the investigators already start the game with a diagnosed insanity, which will will be triggered by your encounters with the occult. You may be doomed by your mental breakdown, or learn to use it to your advantage. The closer you are to losing your mind completely, the more powerful your skills will become."

 

Imagery on cards reflects this idea but the miniatures themselves don't, from what I can see.  Just a bunch of people standing around holding guns and looking pensive.  This is a missed opportunity to do something really engaging and original.

 

If the KS exclusives were alternative sculpts of the key heroes in increasing states of mental distress, now THAT would get my attention.  Like those classic Murch sculpts for the Rafm CoC line.

Yep. 

 

I'm rapidly losing interest, it all feels very 'by the numbers', a classic example of when Kickstarter becomes a simple preorder rather than something the community have helped shape

I was kind of shocked we didnt get marble or frosted dice.

 

I expect a dice bag to follow at some point.

 

Definitely "meh."

Exactly! CMON made zombie versions of their zombicide heroes, so making crazed versions of their Cthulhu Investigators seems like a natural.

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.
