$6.69 for a single mini for shipping?? :blink:

 

I was for sure going to get 1 mini, a possibility of 2 or more but if that's gonna be the cost for a single mini to ship, forget it!

 

I'll just wait till they go retail at places I normally shop online & pay their much lower costs.

I am guessing that is per figure for the pledge price plus shipping for a full pledge (so if there were 10 figures, a pledge plus shipping would be $66.90). At least that is the info they had on their last KS as i recall (and then decreased it as stretch goals were added).

I saw tonight the Kickstarter page for Tomb Guardians's Amazon campaign has gotten rid of most of their shipping costs.  If you buy 1 or 2 figures, you will pay like $6.  I've bought from the company before and generally up to 5 or 6 figures will cost only $6-7 to ship (for the whole thing not per figure).  But the full set on the Kickstarter only costs $5 now to ship and everything after that has free shipping.  I haven't seen any Kickstarters that have given free shipping to customers outside of just doing it as a stretch goal. Outside of Amazon (the online retailer), I don't really see it often with any retailer.  I think this is pretty reasonable and better than anything else I've seen.  I don't know if it matters to anyone on this forum, but I also saw that they have really low, flat rates for outside of the USA too.  I have a friend who lives in Switzerland who looked at the KS too and he said the company is definitely paying the VAT tax for the figures they are shipping to his country. He always pays like 4-5 times the cost to have things shipped to him compared to what he will pay for his figures with this KS.  I'm going to be in for the dwarves and amazons for sure.  I'm hoping I can afford the painted set by the time I pledge.

Also, I just want to say, as a female, not only am I super excited about an all female faction.  It is especially exciting to see the minis are all DIFFERENT body types and are not set up to be totally naked and objectified like most of the female minis that are out there.  On the rare occasion that I do see gaming stuff that have females in it, it's either most of the time skinny women who are basically naked with big boobs, or all enormous women who are made to be evil or slobs.  These are all different sizes, and just as importantly they are all strong and can do stuff.  I don't know if this guy's girlfriend gave him the low down on what women who like this stuff would like to see, but he nailed it.  These are my favorite so far.image.png.87a5efc5cf106e2a5652d58a345929a4.pngimage.png.a839bb6c11506fdce66912856c15e44a.pngimage.png.0858291ba7ab3b79a0ad7d9f9f389741.png

All three of the sculptors for this project, Jason Wiebe, Gene Van Horne, Patrick Keith, are long time Reaper sculptors. If you search Reapers online store under each of their names, you’ll be able to see their work available through Reaper.

Thanks.  I know they do work for both companies.  I like the Reaper stuff (obviously) but I also like the Tomb Guardians stuff.  I've bought the Reaper stuff for a long time, but I like having the figures in pewter and TG just has more of that for the figures that I like.  Especially this line.

If you want your females dressed more sensibly, you should probably check out Oathsworn's Heroines in Sensible Shoes series...   

 

Or Bad Squiddo Games. 

(You may be able to 'Follow along' on their Amazons & Dwarves KS. )

The price in parenthesis is the price per mini if all stretch goals are met for that pledge level. Shipping is handled in the pledge manager, but it was very reasonable within the US. And I think it was a flat rate after so many minis, I'd have to go and check my pledge manager later. 

If you use twitch at all, Cass is doing Q&As all week, tonight he's on Lyn's channel metalhead mini's. 

 

Edited to correct myself. I hadn't read the campaign description until now. On previous mini KS the number in () referred to cost per mini before shipping.

Just talked with the creator on Twitch. The single mini shipping price is $6.69 for 1-5 or 6 minis (depending on weight) for the US, RoW is $8.93. The next pledge level is a flat $5/$15 US/RoW and every level above that is free shipping US, RoW Amazon/Dwarf alliance $5 shipping RoW and above that free shipping RoW. Cass is fixing the verbiage and removing the confusing parentheses to be clearer.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
