CAV: Strike Ops III Kickstarter September 19th 2018

Recommended Posts

Seeing that swag pic reaaaally makes me wish I hadn't had to drop my pledge level down during Kickstarter >.>;;;;

 

And also, out of sheer curiosity @CAVBOSS, what CAV is that blueprint poster of, and is it something people can buy by chance?

@CAVBOSS can I request you to hold shipping my order until after Thanksgiving, I will be out of town and not home that week. I can't post on the KS page, so I am asking here.

That's actually an old Titanfall poster, but we have talked about doing one up for the dictator at some point.

To be honest, Im not even sure we have that capability with the way orders are pulled and handled. With almost 1000 of them going out, it gets a bit crazy. Your better option is to change to an alternate address in an email to me at the custserv(at)talon-games(dot)com as I can change that right now.

I will be asking the Post Office to hold our mail and hope it works. I am also going to ask a friend to drive by every couple of days to check. Thanks, fingers crossed!

Just notified that our box is on hold for an "agricultural exam" and a new expected delivery date of Nov 20th. This delay has not changed our intent to get out before the 27th.

I'd say that sounds bad...except that biosecurity is rather important, and I'm sure it's a random chance as to whether or not they get flagged for checking ;-)

My bet is something we shared the railcar with. We have cleared customs and the models are in Texas, but final delivery hasn't been scheduled yet.

See the source image

For CAV KS3 Backers, we currently have 53 outstanding invoices for shipping unpaid. Most of these have not been "viewed" so I'm assuming they are going into a junk folder or a spam catcher email address.
If you backed the KS and haven't received a shipping invoice to pay, you might ought to figure out what's up fast! It's not such a big deal for US backers down the road as shipping amounts wont change, but for the rest of the world with orders going out together, shipping later separately is pretty drastic. US International mail for a Core Set starts at $91 USD (with no duties or taxes prepaid).


The list of the following 17 backers have no order on file for us to send out shipping invoices or even know what they want to do with their rewards...

Wow, that's....  A few names to say the least.  I'm rather surprised.  Is this something that happens with all Kickstarters, where people don't even try to lock in a pledge? o_O

Yes. I had people ask for KS2 stuff 18 months later..and a couple of months back we had one show up from KS1. That was what, five years ago now? Hence why the disclaimer now as to when we cut bait and move on. Part of the problem is people use "spam" catcher emails for their accounts and then never check them. Whats worst is most of these are $150+ pledges.

Was just notified that our shipment is still being held for the agricultural exam, so no delivery tomorrow (the 20th) as hoped. With this getting into the back half of this week and Thanksgiving next week, looks like fulfillment will have to be moved to first week of December.

 

Sorry folks, I tried.

Two options going on here.

 

Either somebody took the work 'terrain' on the shipping manifest seriously or there's a bunch of Customs agents somewhere playing with tiny robots.

      Story
      Welcome to our newest Kickstarter! You'll notice this one is a little different. In this Kickstarter we are offering the STL Files of some of our classic models for you to print on your home 3D printers. These files, created and designed by John Bear Ross, offer tons of combinations and entrance into an amazing realm of sci-fi models. These models come scaled in 15mm AND 28mm!
      Now, keep in mind, these are for personal use, not for commercial or resale. We own the copyrights and designs but for the sake of this Kickstarter, we are allowing the files to go to you, our loyal supporters.
      So why are we doing this Kickstarter?
      Short answer…We are raising funds to increase our in-house printing capabilities. This will allow us to develop more detailed models, models in larger scales, and bring out even more product lines. Rebel Minis is growing and we want you guys to be part of it.
      But we can’t do it without you, so please consider pledging, and spreading the word!
      Thank you,
      Mike and JBR
      The Reward
      We have only one. ALL the files listed to be available for one pledged amount.  You get the files to everything you see scaled in both 15mm and 28mm.
      Your pledge of $40 gets the whole kit n’ caboodle.  Once again, this is for PERSONAL USE! You do not have permission to distribute, copy or sell the files. *C'mon man, you know that ain’t cool!*
      Stretch Goals
      If we reach our goals, we will unlock stretch goals. These files will be added to the reward and download at the same time.
      Delivery
      After the Kickstarter ends, and if it is successful, you will get a survey to confirm your email. Later, when they are ready, we will email you the links for download.
      The Files
      Look at all these Glorious Files, they can be yours!
      Can I print the weapons and vehicles on FDM and Resin Printers? 
      Yes, everything should be printable on both types of printers found in common use. Most of our prints are optimized for desktop resin printers like the Anycubic Photon or the Elegoo Mars, but FDM should be able to support most builds. If we encounter files that are too large for resin printers, we will happily go back and supply sliced and optimized files to be printed in smaller chunks

      15mm Painted Gunbot examples Gunbots and Gun Carriages Painted Example of 15mm Scaled Gun Turret The Sci-Fi Cycle build is a Fan Favorite. Weapon mounts on each side could be scaled for a variety of weapons.

      My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago.  2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
      I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
      I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter.  I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
      So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.

      I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest,  so I guess they are alright.
       
      It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see?  Sloooooow.)
      But the whole unit is finally done.

       
      Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
       
      Now back to all those Stormtroopers.

      Story
      The fabric of reality is twisting anew, and Fate herself groans in agony. An adventurer has received an artifact both ancient and strange: the Deck of Many Things, which deals boon and woe with the capriciousness of a fey princess.
      But something else is contained herein.
      Another deck, alike in power, bearing spells and shames never before seen in this world or any other. I present you, wise man or fool, with the Deck of Many Fates.
       Two Decks. Infinite Fates.
      All dungeon masters, veteran and novice alike, have heard the legends of the Deck of Many Things. A treasured artifact which can infuse any campaign with danger, wonder, and delight. But look here: another deck has emerged from behind the veil of mystery. A deck equal in power, yet bursting with epic confrontations and sinister secrets. The Deck of Many Fates.
      Comprised of two decks totaling 49 jumbo-size tarot cards, The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates are the perfect accessory for your adventuring party. Our finest sages have also included a guide on the use of these cards, as irresponsible operation may lead to disfigurement, death, and worse. 
      The Deck of Many Things has been an RPG mainstay for over 40 years. It is an artifact of immense power and extreme chaos. Twenty-two cards each contain a strange, potent, and often game-changing effect. Perhaps you shall draw the fabled Flame card, and with it the enmity of a powerful nemesis. Or, just as likely, you may draw the Gem card, blessing you with immense wealth.
      Unlike its relative, the Deck of Many Fates is a relatively new artifact, unknown to most. It contains a staggering twenty-seven cards, each with a new power, curse, or opportunity. The Deck of Many Fates may be used on its own as an independent deck, or shuffled together with the Deck of Many Things to create a 49 card hybrid of magic, terror, and destiny.
      The Deck of Many Things and the Deck of Many Fates includes 49 jumbo tarot cards, sized at 120mm x 70mm (~4.75" x 2.75") in two hand-illustrated tuck boxes, and helpful instructions for use and play.
        Shipping
      Hopefully this step is nice and easy. We've designed a lightweight, tightly-packed product that ships nicely. Domestic (USA) orders ship free, and all International Orders pay a flat $5.
      Campaign Updates & Stretch Goals
      This campaign will have no stretch goals; what you see is what you get. We'll be using the updates to reveal more cards from our mysterious, proprietary Deck of Many Fates.
      Risks and challenges
      Common risks for cards items and RPG accessories typically include product and fulfillment issues. We're partnering with an experienced supplier we've worked with on several major projects like Wolves of Mercia, Derby Day Horse Racing, Michigan Rummy, and Faerie Chess. We're confident in their ability to produce and deliver, as we've seen it for ourselves dozens of times!
       
       
      EDIT: I am in. $15 for 2 Decks, 49 Tarot sized cards with free shipping to US. Seems like a good deal and a small risk.

      Didn't see a topic for this yet.
      2 Limited edition miniatures in 80mm scale. 'Lady Godiva' and 'The Mirror', both based on classical paintings.
      Older miniatures in the series can be bought as an add-on. Comments on previous kickstarters are pretty positive, apparently the casts are good, they're well packaged and sent out on time.
