I really hope Reaper takes their time in its design and have a lot of open communication with the manufacturer so we don’t end up with issues where the manufacturer treats it like manufacturing a toy and not a hobbyist item like they did with Baba Yagas hut.

 

What happened with Baba Yaga's Hut


 

When originally shown, the hut  was intended to be open on the inside with thin walls and a removable roof to allow the inside to be playable space.  
 

Edit:  and yes, like others have mentioned, the legs were planned to come as separate pieces.

They look like the ones from the dark reach xpack, which I love.  The only think I dislike about them is that they all have the same hair style.  I kinda hope there's a part 2 for this kickstarter, I can always use more dark elves.

I forgot about that part.

So what you’re saying is we’re going to need a bigger squid.

The Legion Of Tentacled Species has already made that need known.

They asked for a core add on, they got one. They can now pony up the cash and shut their pie holes.

I wouldn't be surprised if they do one of those updates that shows an upcoming mini but doesn't show the goal amount so they can generate some more interest.

 

But I mean... it should drive some sales anyways, it's adding to the core value.

Hey, the "core is weak" complainers needed their non-fund-driving stretch goal...

yeah but i imagine ppl who want the core already spent $120.  core sets, unless they get brand new people, dont drive more money as its one price for all. same with expansions. just $50 unless ppl dont like part 1 and instead want to see whats in part 2 or 3.  the general add ons help more if they are impressive enough.

Hmm, just noticed something interesting on the Reaper store. The Bones 4 "Not packaged for resale" placeholders have disappeared. Maybe some releases coming down the pipe?

They said on ... yesterdays (?) Twitch stream that they just had a new shipment of Bones mini's arrive.

Those from Bones 1-3 will hit the store as soon as they can get them packaged.  The Bones 4 ones will release in a new wave on November 1st.

Some people could be like me, though, and be on the edge of buying an extra core set.  There's minis I want doubles of.  I know they usually split the core set later down the line but I'm thinking 2 cores might be worth it.

Well, with the Dark Elves bring it up to 131, the cost per mini is 92 cents each. That includes the big figs in there. If you are a fantasy player, wow. Just wow.

That's a true and fair thing to keep in mind.  I'm technically planning to get a 2nd core set, because I'm splitting the first one with a friend.

Though, I'm not going to be able to pledge any more, I don't think.  Today was a very bad, very expensive day... ::(:

Same here.  It's always nice to have a decent sized squad of things such as the Dark Elves, etc.  Or even two separate groupings in case of conflict within the race.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      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!
