CMON Trudvang

Recommended Posts

Thankfully, they're not springing the shipping surprise that they did with Bloodborne, where shipping was $45 for the east and west coasts of USA, and MUCH higher internationally, just for a base pledge. CMON will be charging "actual costs" for shipping, though, which means that you should expect the same shipping prices they charged for Bloodborne.

 

Reaper's KS starts in September, so I'll be saving up for it. I've found CMON base games on sale at half the price of the pledge plus shipping. (No points if you knew where you could get them last week!) CMON KS are essentially the "deluxe version" (and prices) of their games.

Had this one on my watch list, but now I've had a good look at it, it just doesn't grab me.

 

It's a shame, but there's still another 3 upcoming kickstarter on my list so my wallet's happy I've managed to pass on at least one of them.

I have read the designer's diaries, which aren't as detailed as I like.  But.

 

They do give me the sense this is not a miniatures combat game but really a storytelling-card reading-choose your own adventure game with occasional moments of combat with miniatures for adornment/bling. 

 

Maybe a little like Solomon Kane?

 

Can anyone confirm or deny this?  I suppose I could wade into the comments.  Shudder.

I backed Altar Quest and will do at least a little dip in Bones 5, so this really isn't in the cards for me. I'm totally happy with AQ instead of this anyway though. None of these minis really grab me.

I have to give credit to CMON: they assured me by PM they actually have some kind of back-up plan for EU friendly shipping in the works just in case Boris Johnson is every bit as incapable of reaching a workable Brexit compromise within 3 months as he's looked for what's by now the better part of a decade. Some other US creators are busy happily sticking their heads into the sand hoping the entire mess will magically go away...

that's very much the feel I get too,

 

which is why as a Solomon Kane backer I probably won't get in on this (I don't think we'll get the normal plastic avalanche as the cards are going to cost a fair bit to make & ship too)

 

edit: it will be decent enough but you'll need to want the game as well as the plastic, unlike some of their offerings

From the original pitch, I think I was expecting more of a dungeon crawler.  But this looks like it is a strategic events based fantasy game- and probably belongs in a genre with Tainted Grail and Folklore the Affliction.

Problem for me: The huge number of KS exclusives (I like a number of them already). There are not many stores in my vicinity backing Kickstarters ...

Yeah, it's the exclusives that get me in. They make some fantastic figures that you can never get again if you don't back. Hell, I'd love to see them do a KS just for the KS Exclusives at this point.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for conversations, enthusiasm, and commentary.
        
      This thread will be lightly moderated to ensure forum rules are followed and specific questions may be relocated to the Official Information thread.
