$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.

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.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
