The impression I got was “wow, there’s a lot of figures” in there. Makes me a bit nervous simple because of the scale of the KS. But, like you said, if they are an established company then perhaps they know what they are doing.

For once orcs and goblins very much so catch my attention... As do the minotaurs and werewolves... 

 

I'll have to think about it, those prices add up rather quickly.

Ohh man, I'm worried how much I may drop on this from just the add-ons alone. I like me giants.

My thoughts as well, I was kinda overwhelmed with all of it.

 

I do like the Femme Fatales and the Undead a lot.

And even if I don't need them, those Orc and Human Villagers and craftsmen are an awesome idea.

 

I need to think about it since I already have a huge backlog.

 

Hm, those femme fatales are 28mm in the kickstarter, but the say they will become available in 75mm after the kickstarter in retail as well.

I think I will want one or two of those in 75mm then!

Orc villagers ... that's something I don't have and could use. Femme Fatales would simply be "want" ...  I also like the elves. But as others have said: They have put A LOT on their plate and prices add up quickly. I also do not really like the idea that you have to spend $200 before you get a single freebie.

I'm seeing lots of pretty figures but I'm also seeing a lot of concept art aaaand the figures which also have concept art revealed display how close to the art they are (or how much they've changed) so I need to take that into account when considering what the concept art only figures are likely to look like.

Well, they're honest about it at least.

 

And while it may suck that you need to get so many core sets to get freebies, if any are unlocked, at least it means it's less likely that they overextend themselves.

The prices seem reasonable enough that I'm not too worried about freebies, but they aren't exactly cheap either. I do like the sculpts. On the other hand, I'm well stocked with goblins, kobolds, undead and townsfolk after Bones 4.

 

I might get the orc or mounted goblin core, but most likely I'll just cherry pick a few add-ons and keep my price tag as low as possible.

I agree, doubly so because that amount plus add ons plus shipping and currency conversion make that tier one that's definitely out of reach for me...  And that if you pledge for lower than the $200 tier, you don't get the freebies even if you surpass $200...

 

I probably won't go into this one, even with liking the orcs a decent amount, simply because, well, I'm uncertain if  I can afford the decent amount of coin to get the two sets and several add-ons I want.

Absolutely and I like that.

 

One miniature, for example, has some nice curves and contours that were absent in the concept art (which was more angular). In this case I prefer the final sculpted version over the artwork. Assuming the sculptor might have a style or bias then I can look at the concept art for the un-sculpted figures and imagine them being less angular.

This one is dangerous... those resin castings they put up as a preview look awesome.

 

Gonna have to keep my eye one this one, might be another 'Here's a $1, I'll see you at the pledge manager' one for me though.

I like the villager sets, especially some of the add-on villager extras, but I'm trying to talk myself out of backing it. The renders look really nice on a lot of the stuff, though. Really, really nice...

      Succubus Publishing fulfilled (very late) on their first Kickstarter, and have returned for a reprint, along with two sequel games.  They've been updating their Kickstarter preview, and should be launching later today.

      Overview The 1000 page Hardcover Series by Jason Brubaker has finally come to it's epic conclusion. Now is your chance to collect all six hardcover books at a massive discount! All six books are first printing. The series will NOT be reprinted in this form again. Once they run out-of-stock, these collector books will be out-of-print. There will only be 2000 to 2500 copies of the complete series available. Hi, I'm Jason Brubaker and this is my new COMPLETE comic called Sithrah.
      I've worked as a professional Storyboard Artist, Animator and Visual Development Artist in Hollywood for 20 years on movies like Blade, Pitch Black, and the Kung Fu Panda Trilogy. In 2015 I quit my coveted and cushy job at Dreamworks Animation to pursue self-publishing my own graphic novels and I've been doing it ever since. My first graphic novel series is called reMIND and it won a few awards. 
      Sithrah 5 - 176 pages
      Sithrah 6 - 208 pages 
      Sithrah is a project very close to my heart. It is a journey about "the Leap of Faith" of a little girl who travels in and out of the spirit world to try to find her missing father. It is heavily inspired by my love for Miyazaki's movies but with a western worldview. 
      For this final campaign, I am printing the last 2 books in the series. The artwork is complete and pretty much ready for the printer. The last 2 books contain a total of 380 full color pages.
      Best of all, the final book is not scheduled to be released until the end of 2020 and so only backers will be able to read the full story without having to wait for the release date. If this campaign does really well and we sell out of copies, you will be the ONLY PEOPLE who will have copies of Sithrah 5 and 6. 

      The only reason I am able to print these high quality books is because of you. You guys have come through for each campaign and made it possible for my crazy stories to get published. You are my financiers, friends, editors, collaborators, inspiration, motivation, mentors and marketing partners. I could not have done any of this without you. You have changed and blessed my life in so many ways on this 5 year journey to complete Sithrah and I cannot thank you enough for helping me get these books made and onto coffee tables around the world.

      50% off of my entire back catalogue.
      Indiegogo exclusive! I am slashing the prices on all my old books for this campaign. This will be the cheapest price that you will be able to purchase Sithrah or reMIND. That means that you can get the entire Sithrah 6-book hardcover set for as low as $99. 
      Get Sithrah 6 a YEAR before anyone else!
      The release dates for each book is spaced out by a year for retailer orders and Amazon orders. That means that only you will be able to read the final Sithrah book a year and a half before it's release date and 6 months early for Sithrah 5.
      And if we sell all of the print run in this campaign then it means that you will be the ONLY ones who have a copy and I not release it in stores or on Amazon. Why would I limit the print run? Because the previous books only had a print run of 2500 copies and in order to print more copies of Sithrah 5 & 6, I would also have to reprint Sithrah 4, 3 and 2. And since I don't have that kind of money laying around I will not be reprinting those older books again.
      Win Exclusive Gifts
      You are my marketing experts! I need your help in spreading the word to all your friends and family and in return I will give you exclusive gifts and rewards. Watch the video below to see just how easy it will be to get something unique from this campaign like a sticker, art print or original inked page from the books.
      VIDEO
      Book Specs.
      Sithrah 1: Kingdom of the Air -  96 pages
      Sithrah 2: Propositions - 160 pages
      Sithrah 3: The Symbol - 188 pages
      Sithrah 4: The Deep - 176 pages
      Sithrah 5: Light City - 176 pages (NEW)
       Sithrah 6: The End - 208 pages (NEW)
      Only 500 copies of the new books have a signed and a numbered collectors bookplate.

      Art Contest - Get Your Art Printed in the Book!
      Just like my past publications, I want to include some guest art in the back of the printed books. And so… ART CONTEST!!! Submit your art while the campaign is active to get a chance at getting it published in the gallery of Sithrah: Book 5 or 6. Send me your amazing artistic version of the Sithrah characters to be printed in the book... FOREVER! If you make it into the book, you will be credited with your art. 

      The page dimensions are 6.75 inches (wide) x 10.5 inches (tall). Please make sure all art is 300dpi when scanned. The deadline for submission is the end of the campaign. Please send all submissions to CoffeeTableComics@gmail.com for consideration. I'll pick the final winner(s) for the book. :)
      Add-Ons
      I will be offering Add-ons when you take the survey after the campaign is finished. You will then have the option to add single books to your order as well as copies of reMIND and other books of mine at a discounted price. Because there are already so many books and options with this campaign I decided to keep the Add-Ons separate. But not to worry, you will have the option of adding things to your order prior to shipping.
      Timeframe
      The books are pretty much ready to go to the printer. I'll be preparing the files in InDesign while the campaign is active. The moment the campaign is finished I will deliver the files to the printer. The printing schedule will be about 2 months and so you will get your books before Christmas. International orders might take a little longer. 
      Why so Much Money?
      I've been making beautiful hardcover graphic novels for 10 years now. Sithrah: Books 1 - 4have already been printed with high quality cloth bindings, foil stamped covers and thick delicious paper. Yes, I said delicious. 
      To wrap up this series, I am trying to print the final two books at the same time. It usually costs about $12,000 to $15,000 to print just one book like this, and not only am I printing two books, I plan to make a collectors slipcase as well. The shipping costs have been anywhere between $8000 to $30,000 on my past campings and so that is why my funding goal is $45,000. If I don't reach this goal then you will be refunded and the books will not go to print. But I am confident that we can easily make this happen.
      Win Inked Pages and Prints!

       
       
      --------------------
      I'm a backer of the previous 4 books, and have also backed for these two books.

      Hello all,
       
      I will be running a Kickstarter next week, Tuesday June 19th, for a set of 5 horror based miniatures i have sculpted.
       
      Here is the preview link for the campaign:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/73621027/demons-from-hell?ref=1iqkkt&token=80ad317d
       
      I hope you will take a moment to check it out if interested!
       
      Thanks,
       
      Isaac

      So, I just realized there isn't a thread here yet on that officially licensed game based on everyone's favorite the best known dinosaur franchise (sorry, I prefer Xenozoic Tales, here):
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jurassicworld/jurassic-worldtm-miniature-game
       
      I can't say I'm overly impressed, given they don't seem to have anything but renders yet (making that Jun. 2020 delivery date look... optimistic, to say the least), and given the English project page certainly hasn't been run by anyone legitimately 'bilingual', casting some doubt on whether they'll manage to pick a 'specialized game translator' that can actually deliver quality English text (particularly, I'm concerned they'll use someone normally doing English to French translation without considering that doesn't really prove they're good at doing the reverse).
       
      I also don't like how they're being a little obtuse with the company(s) behind the project. Who exactly is Cimmeria? Why doesn't Exod have an actual website under that address? What does Bandecine have to do with anything?
       
      Overall, I guess I just convinced myself to give this a pass. Backing French companies waving - maybe not the brightest, but still - red flags on Kickstarter has a tradition of being a bad idea. Not risking this being the exception to the rule.
