I'm in for the $100 level, but I'm not interested in the baby-sized expansion.  I mean, what am I going to do, set up a crib to store the game in?   "Oh, you have a baby?  What's their name?

Baby for scale:

If I buy this I'm going to keep it hidden, paint it when noone is around, and then volunteer to DM the next time either of my groups finishes our adventures... and lead up to a big boss fight at the e

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.

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.

You can come to Denver and paint mine! :)

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.

 

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.

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

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers! 
       
      $100 level has 40+ miniatures and FREE USA shipping!
       
      RBJ Game Company has created 18 KS projects, mostly miniatures. Let me know your experience with them if you backed before.
