If they offer just the trees for a cheap add on, I might be in for those. I have no other need for this.

 

I too really like the trees, and they appear to offer them separately via their first pledge level ("Reforestation"). However, it appears to be $65 for two trees (plus $15 shipping). Ouch. Did I get that right?

Am I just stupid or does the "all-in" pledge (not early bird) cost five dollars more than the backer's choice pledge plus the reforestation add-on?

 

Yeah, they added the Backer's Choice pledge after people asked for it. Not sure if they messed up the price, or what, but it does come out to cheaper if you do it that way.

Those Savage Ones would make great villagers for Mythic Battles: Pantheon! 

 

Sure wish someone would make some panicked generic fantasy townsfolk. I mean, goblins raiding the fields, right?? :lol:

 

Creator's previous project was cancelled, making this a First Created project.

The main game has three trees plus a bunch of other stuff for $110 bucks.  If you wanted more trees it makes more sense to just get two base games and go bananas with the extra monkeys.

 

The previous project they ran was a staggeringly unsuccessful zombicide clone.

 

I am also wary of Kickstarters with licensed Fox IP (ahem cough prodos AvP...) as just bad luck.

They've said today that they plan on lowering the price of the reforestation box. I'm not sure how that's going to work since it would affect the all in price and you can't change a pledge tier once it has backers in it. They have been pretty responsive to questions and concerns however.

 

Here's what they said about the first campaign; "WYSIWYGames launched a KS over last the year to help a game already made to be funded to produce other chapters for this boardgame but the KS had been finaly canceled because the offer didn't match a KS campain. This boardgame had been well sold through retailers instead In France and Belgium."

 

I'm not entirely sure if that means they took the expansions to retail instead of using Kickstarter, or if they're saying the campaign didn't do well because the game was available retail.

I've seen a few comments on one of the boardgame groups i'm part of on facebook from people who said they'd played a prototype at a convention and not been impressed with the gameplay, anecdotal but worth keeping in mind that it may not stand up if you intend to back for more that looting the minis

It unfunded yesterday, and continues bleeding backers. A damn shame because I would have loved to get those minis.

Hopefully they'll listen to the constructive comments, cancel now and return in September with a better structured and realistic campaign.

And I hope they won't lose the license in the mean time.

 

$65 for 2 trees? That means the three trees in the WAR box would amount to $90 of the total $110 cost. So a whole game without the trees for $20?

        "The Mrs. had followed her grandmother's gingerbread cookie recipe exactly as she had been taught as a child, however, she was extra cautious not to add too much pixie dust and rum to the bowl of ingredients this time.
      Amid the dry heat of her convection oven the gingerbread dough began to blend with the magical components, and everything was slowly activated by the steady warmth of the preheated oven. 
      When the leavening agents and other alchemical ingredients puffed out the enchanted dough, The Gingerbread Gang began to magically come to life, and the kitchen was suddenly filled with the scent of cinnamon, nutmeg, and something else I didn’t quite recognize."

And amid quite a bit of chuckling, I overheard The Mrs. softly sing some sort of ditty about "Sugar, and spice, and things not quite nice.".  
      I think she may have had a nip, or three, of rum."

          Hello guys, gals, and non-binary pals, 
      Thank you for making the previous War in Christmas Village Kickstarters a success, and welcome back to another crowdfunding venture! 
      We are seeking funds to create our newest batch of tabletop holiday gaming miniatures, as well as, create a packaged war band set of our two most popular snowmen minis, per our backer community request.
      War in Christmas Village tabletop gaming miniatures are perfectly scaled for most popular tabletop role playing games, miniatures war games, railroad hobbyists, Christmas Village displays, and other holiday dioramas. 
      War in Christmas Village tabletop minis are highly detailed, mold injected PVC, arrive unpainted, and are scaled 28mm boot to eye. 
      But, don't take our word for it check out some of the reviews of our prior War in Christmas Village tabletop miniatures releases :)

      Hello all - Chroniclers of Barbaric Splendor is now live. It features licensed miniatures from creators of swords and sorcery such as David C. Smith (Oron, Red Sonja, Bran Mak Morn) and Howie Bentley (The Snake-Man's Bane).

      It is perfectly reasonable that this will come up, so I wanted to post this here as well:
       
      It is no secret my first campaign was delayed, although fulfilled. Part of that was poor planning and expectations, and part was health issues that exacerbated each other and financial issues that arose from that. All such issues are in the past, and I am proud that I overcame them to fulfill what I feel was an amazing Kickstarter with amazing miniatures. Since then I have been operating Barbaric Splendor Miniatures and have been delivering excellent service and product. I have learned also from others in the industry and feel confident I am offering a well-thought out campaign that will be a success for all of us! 5 of the miniatures have already been sculpted, and sculptors lined up for the rest, including add-ons and stretch goals. Dark Platypus studio will be doing the casting - from previous experience I can attest to both the quality and timeliness of their work. Thus, the only risks would be possible delays in sculptor schedules for stretch goals and the fact that I will be doing all the packing and shipping myself when not working my regular job could lead to slower times getting things out if the campaign is wildly successful. I understand that some will be displeased with the delays of the first campaign, but I feel I have proven myself over the past year with Barbaric Splendor Miniatures, and I look forward to bringing more great Swords and Sorcery miniatures to you!

      You spoke and we listened ...
      Thank you for checking out our project. After our first successful project we are back with the same great detailed miniatures but in the 28mm scale many of you wanted.
      Made from injection moulded PVC we were incredibly happy with the quality of our previous models, the factory we worked with were very efficient allowing us to start to fulfil our Kickstarter a full two months early.
      We worked hard to have our sculpts in place meaning as soon as we are successful we can spring into action and instruct the factory to start the process. 
      Core Box Alpha containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Core Box Beta containing 2 large Animals (2inch base) and 6 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Hero Forge Models next to our Animal Miniatures Pledge for both to make a saving. Both Core Boxes containing 4 large Animals (2inch base) and 12 medium Animals (1inch base) 28mm scale Models Containing various animals and companions these 2 core sets are everything you loved in the first but with a 28mm scale.
