I need* that skeleton.

 

* for a given value of need not correlating to any kind of actual necessity

That pledge system and their self-contradictory comments on it are a train wreck, on a level that I personally feel it violates the "clearly presented" rule.

 

Also, they're technically offering prohibited items (you're apparently pledging for certificates/coupons to use on their website), for which they give this explanation:

Quote

The reason we are doing the gift certificate is because KS doesn't provide addresses for us to ship the product to our customers. Yes these are Dragonlock tiles.

 

I suppose that may just be the project creator bumbling along because they don't know the first thing about clear communications and how Kickstarter actually works (cf. getting the address through Kickstarter's survey), but it is certainly is one hell of a red flag.

I really like the medusa and the four-armed skeleton. But I will not back this as I still have no clear idea how that "gift certificate" system works. If it works like "pledge $50 and get minis for $60" (for example) why have such strange pledge levels that seemingly give you a certain pack of miniatures at all?

And I always thought that KS WOULD INDEED provide addresses (maybe something changed) as not every KS I backed had a pledge manager.

 

So I think (!) I got a clear answer: If you back, you get exactly those miniatures listed for your pledge level and can add more at a discounted price. (Which is exactly what one of the updates, said, too, but posts in the KS comment section seemed to contradict that). That means I'm definitely out.

no, all Kickstarter provides to the Creators are the pledge level you pick, your pledge amount, and your email address., and the money.

I've been told they have started adding a backer number, but I've not seen that.

Love the minis but I'm not a fan of the pledge level contents. Example, I like the skeleton, but not enough to want it. I do like the dwarf(s). Kinda torn on this one right now. Jason & Bobby are probably my top 2 favorite (if not top 5) sculptors right now + both are great guys so we shall see.

Huh? That's not how it is supposed to work. Kickstarter's creator handbook says in the fulfillment section (and has for some time):

Quote

If you designated that a reward requires physical shipping, the survey will automatically ask backers for their mailing addresses.

 

I know that's indeed how it used to work for quite some time, and I wwas pretty sure it still does.

 

If Kickstarter has stealth changed this detail without properly documenting it, this is indeed a red flag for trusting Kickstarter any longer.

All the creator gets at the end of the KS is what Ladystorm said,

 

however you can  do a KS survey (or whatever they call it) to gather info like addresses, but it's reputedly very clunky and non user friendly both in what you can ask, and in the output that you get

 

so maybe worth doing for a small project with 1 or 2 pledge levels, you're going to fulfil yourself by handwriting addresses in the kitchen,

 

but pretty much useless if its a large project with lots of pledge levels/add ons being fulfilled by a warehouse by people who might want the info in a database they can query & print out from (that's why all these project creators pay backerkit, crowdox etc, I'm sure they'd love it if they didn't have to)

I’m considering the monster level pledge. I already have so many dwarves from Oathsworn that haven’t gotten any love. But I’m always down for different takes on monsters for my dnd games!!

 

Having read through the comments, and what with all the changes being made, I am a bit concerned as to how fulfillment will end up happening. Jason and Bobby are amazing talents, but it seems like the project is drawing some red flags due to the mutable nature from the onset.

      I'm not associated with these guys, but they make some pretty good MDF terrain, and are branching out into minis

      Mirrors of Tullarn is a new range of 28mm miniatures from Knights of Dice, set in a distinctive fantasy setting and cast in glorious metal!
      These characterful figures have been sculpted by Anton Ducrot (from Flytrap Factory) for tabletop miniature wargames and would look amazing in any fantasy setting, whether that is your Dungeons & Dragons or other roleplaying campaigns or as weary adventurers in your Frostgrave warbands or other tabletop games.
      We are using this campaign to fund the production molds and the initial release of 28 figures from four factions, the Anram, Tarusa, Lahari and Saresh, in glorious white-metal!  Hopefully (with your help!) we can also release a host additional figures in the form of freebies, add-ons and awesome stretch goals!
      A small band of Lahari faces of against some Saresh warriors All the miniatures have been sculpted and master molds created, we simply need the funds to make the production molds to put these figures into full production.
      With your help, we can bring these figures to market and hopefully get a good headstart on expanding the range quickly.
      The Anram defend their mountain hide-away from a marauding band of Tarusa raiders There are 8 simple pledge levels to choose from, we’ve broken them into easy to understand groups. Simply pick a pledge level, (each one represents a group of figures from the different factions), you'll then receive any FREE STRETCH GOALS unlocked during the campaign ... the more stretch goals that are unlocked, the more figures you get for free!
      A group of hired knights accompanied by their paymaster The Wanderer - no rewards, select this pledge to simply show your support!  Thank you!
      The Nomad - back the project at this level and you'll receive the Kickstarter Exclusive 'Void Witch', and gain access to the Add-ons and Stretch Goals to add more when they are unlocked. This pledge does not qualify for any free add-ons.
      Anram Nobility - receive the 7 Anram figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Tarusa Chieftain - receive the 7 Tarusa figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Lahari Seafarer - receive the 7 Lahari figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Saresh Labourer - receive the 7 Saresh figures, all FREE stretch goals, access to Add-Ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      Warlord of Tullarn - You will receive all initial 28 figures from the Anram Nobility, Tarusa Chieftain, Lahari Seafarer & Saresh Labourer  pledges.  You'll also receive all FREE stretch goals, access to add-ons and the Kickstarter Exclusive figure - the Void Witch!
      All-In! - You will receive all 28 figures from the Anram Nobility, Tarusa Chieftain, Lahari Seafarer & Saresh Labourer  pledges.  You'll also receive FOR FREE every unlocked stretch goal, add-on and the Kickstarter Exclusive 'Void Witch'!  This pledge is a little  bit of a gamble, but as the stretch goals start unlocking this pledge level really starts paying dividends!
      *25mm Round slotted base included with every miniature. 
      The masters of time, the Anram live high on the highest peaks across Tullarn Savage mountain clansmen, bent on domination and oppression! Masters of the oceans, rivers and trade the Lahari wear the finest silks and flaunt oppulent treasures Saresh tend to the fertile valleys and vast farmlands of Tullarn A true Warlord knows how to bring people together, and then pitch them at each others throat!

      Plonking away a the Bones 4 core set, this is number 5:
       
       
      I am not a number! I am a free man!
       
       
      The metal version of this is called Ankoa, Barbarian Hero.
       
      He has a really small head compared to most of the other minis. I expect he is not too bright. Probably not destined to bear the jeweled crown of Aquilonia upon a troubled brow.
       

      There's a new playah in town! Come get some!
       
      B4Core #5 Barbarian

      Here is a Bones inspired kickstarter that I think my fellow painters will appreciate, a travel and display case for your mini.
