Hope not. Although that might reduce the amount I have to pay for by the end of this thing.

 

I have no interest in anything Lovecraftian unless it can easily be repurposed to something else.

 

(See also: fantasy figures with giant weapons, horned helmets, and spiky armor.)

I would hope that it's all Mythos.  

Trying to mix Mythos and sci-fi or western or superhero probably won't go over very well.

I'm with you on that. Lovecraft never really did it for me.

On the other hand, it's starting to look like those of us who like cowboys, supers, and robots are gonna get left out in the cold completely this kickstarter. :down:

It's on a 2" base so as dragons go, yes.

I'm wondering if we can convince them to do a Chronoscope Bones KS project? 

I know Ron said they've talked about it before, but always rolled it into the next Bones campaign.  Given the lack of love Chronoscope has gotten from Reaper, I think a Chronoscope specific one would be a way for both them and the fans to figure out if the line deserves a future.

Which means you can afford to order extras for variant Gem Dragons of all the different gemstones.

GEM

i dont use the same model for various things.  i'll have to wait to get unique larger gem dragons i guess or decide to actually attempt to make my own...

 

i wonder if any good gem molds around there.

 

before that, i need to finish my borys project, and then want to do a Time Dragon (from one of the last dragon magazines.. its a crazy epic god like powerful dragon for 3.5E)

If Chrono does go mythos, I hope the adventurers look like 20th Century adventurers, basing this on the mentions of the Model A Ford.

You're probably right, but it shouldn't have to be that way:  Lovecraft himself wasn't beyond writing sci-fi (at least one of his collaboration stories was set on Old Solar System Venus, and the various Elder monsters in his later stories were actually aliens), the Weird West is a popular Mythos setting and would be the Americanized version of the even more popular Gaslight Mythos setting), and the pulp spawned both the Superhero and Weird Fiction genres virtually side-by-side, with the pulpier side of Weird Fiction overlapping the early superhero genre with the likes of the diabolical Doctor Fu Manchu (one of the original super-villains) sharing a great deal of territory between the two pulp genres (and, not to mention that a Lovecraftian monster intrusion was actually the backbone for the entire plot of The Watchmen superhero comic!)

 

On paper, pulp western, sci-fi, detective, superhero, and Mythos minis should mix well, but you'll probably have a hard time convincing most backers of that.  "Hey - you got chocolate in my peanut butter!"  "And you got peanut butter in my chocolate!"  "Our childhood has been ruined forever!"  :D

That would be cool.

 

  • A set with Zulus and British Colonial Troops expanding the metal line with more poses.
  • Alien and IMEF Troops , several poses per race, armoured vehicles/flyer?
  • A Superhero/villain set including a large Death Ray weapon and some vehicles.
  • Mythos set with modern / 20th century explorers.
  • Some kind of Not Stargate with scientists, soldiers and otherworlders.
  • Mad scientist set with all sort of medical equipment, incubator tubes and strange creatures

I know, I'm the one who asked Ron about it LOL!

I would absolutely be there for such a project. I think the line is more sustainable than a lot of people think. The problem is that the kickstarters fill up with very vocal "you must not contaminate MY precious FANTASY project with robots! because I'LL never use it!" types.

There's been a lack of Mythos stuff in this KS so far. Traditionally, we've had a Great Old One in each KS.

Given the fact they've teased a Model A Ford, I doubt the snowy encounter will be Chronoscope.  The Snow Leopard also fits fantasy better than mythos by a fair margin.

In D&D terms it is Large (2" base).  Small would be a ~20mm base.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
