If the pledges are $100 plus shipping each, that's $20 for a building. Much less than resin, less painting than MDF and 3D printing, but still more expensive than papercraft and 3D printing.

I'll bet it's more like £60-70 per building with maybe a couple smaller buildings together. £15-30 for the playmat. And smaller one sheet sets for £8-12. It is not cheap and the shipping is brutal too. Looks pretty though.

I'm curious why you think it'll be so high? They've already previewed the base pledges in the linked blog post, so "$20 per building" is just doing the math of "announced pledge price" ÷ "announced pledge contents".

Yeah each set will be £70-75 going be every other KS they have done.

 

Each sheet of card is £4 so additional addon items are costed accordingly if it takes 2 sheets then the add-on costs £8. 

 

With their KS you get a ton of additional sheets as SG. 

 

You get a lot of bang for your buck, shipping is high, but a single set weighs over 2.5kg.

Now the only questions are: is the playmat included (like it was with their dungeon terrain)? And: what about bushes and plants ;) ?

 

A 2ft by 2ft playmat is general standard. Bush's and plants probably not, the guys avoid making "Organic" scenery as it looks weird in card.

it's live ... playmat unfortunately NOT included (but add-on price is ok and I don't care that much - the pledge is worth the money in my opinion even without the mat - and there are stretch goals to come).

I'm really tempted to go all in on this one to give me a foundation for towns; I do like the ruined monastery as well.

They didn't even include the play mats in a pledge, *sigh*:down:, it looks like there's not as much to a pledge now either, that battlefield is pretty weak for content, SG's might make it more worth it but considering what the last Battlesystem KS cost me, (its NOT Canada friendly fyi) I'll pass on this one too. Looks cool, but I can make houses from dollar store foamcore that'll look just as good and waaay cheaper. For those who pledge, enjoy.

I have a 3d printer (and have been printing a lot lately) - and I'm still backing this because:

 

- I don't have to wait for 24+ hours to have a house ready

- I don't have to paint the Battlesystem houses

- I can put those Battlesystem houses together in variant ways

- I don't need a whole cupboard to store them

 

But yes, the fact that shipping to Germany should not cost an arm and a leg is important, too.

Their last fantasy kickstarter was shipped to Canada by DHL, who charged me a $14 handling fee plus GST and PST.  It has been said on these forums that a previous scifi KS was fulfilled in Canada via Snakes and Lattes, thus avoiding such charges.  But Battle Systems make no such claims or promises here. 

 

Agreed that the value isn't there yet -- at least not for Canada.  if they add more buildings to the stretch goals that might change.

Are people often paring this with Dwarven Forge on their tables? Would be interested in seeing pics with both on a table if they are out there.

the last Battlesystem KS

Can you comment on the quality of the components, ease of assembly and so on?

 

I heard from their sewer set that it is nice but basically an afternoon project to assemble by itself.

quality of components: I have nothing to criticize there.

 

ease of assembly: I have the Fantasy "dungeon" terrain and yeah, it requires some planning in advance. Putting it together then is - depending on the intended size - not THAT time-consuming. I think because those houses have easier layouts than a dungeon, it will even be quicker to assemble the village.

      Story
      By popular demand, we are giving everyone a second chance to own a gorgeous piece of Myth lore!
      The World of Myth is based on the highly sought-after Myth Limited Edition book. It shares the same high-quality leather binding and gilded pages, as well as much of the exceptional art and lore from the original. However, it also includes dozens of pages of brand-new content!
      These new pages will provide readers their first look at parts of the Myth story that have yet to be told, including stories by Brian Shotton:
      After the siege of Farrenroc, a Wall-commander loses faith in the Bright Legion, challenges the Commander-General's strategy and loyalties, and begins a journey to expose the secrets that have led to the deaths of so many of her soldiers. A master storyteller weaves a tale of love and jealousy between Anunkara, the Sun, and Lunankanen, the Moon. But is there more truth to the story than she knows? For those who are new to Myth or who missed the Myth Limited Edition rulebook, this book still includes much of the fantastic world-building from that previous volume, such as:
      Lore overviews for every hero class introduced so far Guidance for solo play, including multi-class deck construction The Art of Myth A full bestiary, including brand-new information about the Lucanines Whether you are a veteran hero or are just beginning your journey into Myth, The World of Myth has many wonderful new things to discover. 
      This is a small, straightforward campaign, so we’ve kept our reward levels to a minimum. We are mostly concerned with offering a leatherbound Myth lore book for everyone who couldn’t get one before. However, we wanted to make sure that anyone who had picked up the previous LE book had a chance to see the exciting new content!
      Digital Acolyte
      This is the perfect level for everyone who already owns the Myth LE book and doesn’t want to pay for another physical book with overlapping content. We’ll send you a full PDF of World of Myth, plus you’ll get digital versions of all the stretch goals. That means that you can print them and play with them as soon as we have them ready to go! 
      World Weaver
      This is the core reward level for the campaign. It features the physical World of Myth book, a gorgeous leatherbound collector’s item that you can proudly display with your Myth collection, whether you have one already or are getting ready to start one. You will also receive a digital version of the full book, and both physical and digital versions of every stretch goal unlocked. 
      We want to keep our goals manageable so that we can get you your rewards as soon as possible. With that in mind, we’re sticking to a combination of cards (which we can print quickly) and digital rewards that do not depend on shipping. The cards will be available digitally so that all backers can play with them, regardless of reward level.

      Story
      Five years ago, CONAN the board game became a massive hit and spawned a faithful community of players, designers, and enthusiasts. Brand new content has been long in coming, but it’s finally time to unlock the remaining quantities of 1st Edition boxes alongside the release of our biggest Hyborian Age expansion ever.
      Those who wish to wet their swords for the first time and veterans from previous campaigns shall join ranks and heed the call of Conan the Conqueror!
      Not only is the Adventure Mode (our original one vs many system) gameplay you know and love making its return, but we’re also adding a revised version of the solo/co-op rules featured in the Conan Monolith Sourcebook. Regardless of which version of Conan you own, or plan to purchase, all of the new content will pair perfectly with what you have.
      To celebrate its 5th Anniversary, we are making the Conan: The Boardgame, the 2015 classic 1st Edition available again in limited quantities. Combined with the new mega-Conqueror expansion you’ll be able to enter the savage worlds and raise your own bloodied sword. 
      This new expansion will boost options for ALL owners of the Conan Board Game. To play all of these new scenarios, you require only the core version of the game; however, King Pledge and Barbarian Pledge owners will find further options in some of the included scenarios.
      All of these scenarios will be presented in the Tome of Skelos: a 60+ page hardcover book in the style of our previous titles. Inside, you will find 6 brand new scenarios for the original Conan Adventure mode (one vs many mode) that make use of all the new miniatures, maps and tiles. We will add a seventh scenario if its Stretch Goal is unlocked.
      We’ve also included an updated version of the solo/co-op rules that debuted in the Conan Monolith Sourcebook as well as a campaign of 7 specially designed solo co-op scenarios, where players will choose their heroes, gather equipment, and gain powerful Boons to complete their escape across the Pictish Wilderness. The Version 1 rules can be found below as well as a description of the gameplay. The Tome will also feature brand new artwork created for this campaign.
