I suspect the original would have been more like Kah-tah-bleh-pahs, since it comes from "καταβλέπω, (katablépō)". But by the time we reach later Gygaxian, it's unclear what the preferred pronunciation would have been. :B):

Meh, I'll just put a sombrero on mine and call it a Cataramba!

 The value of the core set is bonkers.  Generally I *think* you can expect somewhere between 2x and 3x the price.

 

Basically, here's how I'd break it down:

If you like/would use the minis and have the money, pledge for it.

If you like/would use the minis and will have the money in the next year, pledge the minimum and add funds later.

If you aren't that interested in it, wait for retail.  You can always add last minute funds to the pledge manager if you really want to.

 

For example, your friend can pledge $1 now, and whether he decides to order $8 or $800 worth of stuff in the pledge manager later it will all work out.

 

Edit: Also, in years past there has been the option to pledge for specific subgroups of the core set.  The value isn't quite as good, but it's still decent.  If you only want certain sections of the core set that's probably the best bang for your buck.

I'm mixed on my response so far.. there are some awesome minis in the core set.. but there are also some I hope are just rough WIPs and won't be as cartoony when they are made..  I'm also a little disappointed that they chose to use the Limited release VIP Reapercon dragon bust instead of commissioning a new one.  Sure, Bones vs Resin but still.. 

 

Lots of good add ons, love the paint set.  Not sure how I feel about the DD Expansion yet.  Just not a lot I need there.

What would the Catoblepas cost at retail?  Trying to get a friend to join the KS and he is trying to figure out the value of the core set.  I am myself am in at $250

With all the different mini sizes within the core set, it's hard to put a price on any single mini.

 

However, once the campaign ends and the pledge manager opens up, you generally get the option of getting individual minis from the core set at a fraction of the retail price. Overall, expect it to be about 50% of the retail price.

Izzy just gave me permission to post her concept art:

I love this guy!  I like the pebbly skin texture on the sculpt.  You captured the personality in the brow ridge and underbite really well!

 

Does he really fit on a 2” round base?  I thought he looked longer than that.

My best guess (not a Reaper representative) would be $5-7 US, given the size and complexity and comparing the figure to other Bones figures already available at retail.

Not sure if anyone has made one of these yet, or even wants one, but there's a guy who usually makes one for the Dwarven Forge kickstarters and I've always found them very useful.  Here's a link to a very simple spreadsheet for what's on the kickstarter so far.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.

      Hi everyone, I wanted to share that we have just launched the third Dunkeldorf Kickstarter! Our last Kickstarter was focusing on "The Prancing Peacock" more or less a full tavern setting. 

      Our new Kickstarter still focuses on the town of Dunkeldorf, but this time it's all about a Brewer "Sven Wentzel" who's also the leader of a ruthless gang of thugs. There's also more focus on the mutants that dwell in the sewers beneath the town. Finally, the third "Faction" for this campaign is Witch Hunters and their Hired Swords who are en route towards Dunkeldorf to root out the mutants they've heard continued rumours about. 

      The Kickstarter can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kinggames/the-kingpin-of-dunkeldorf - With our last 2 campaigns we unlocked a lot of Stretch Goals and included a bunch of extra free miniatures, accessories and pets and we hope to achieve the same this time! 🙂

      One of my fellow party members is publishing their first adventure path on KS!
       
      "Lament of The Widow is a tale of thrilling mystery and cosmic horror, spanning over 20 elegantly appointed and thoroughly haunted rooms in the labyrinthine world of Moorehouse, each of which contains the potential for rich rewards, powerful magical items, or painful, agonizing failure. Behind our beautifully illustrated cover, players and Game Masters alike will be thrilled to find over 100 pages of carefully crafted maps, incredible illustrations, and detailed descriptions, as well as a new setting-appropriate background option,  brand new magic items, an update to a classic tabletop monster, and an array of original creatures created just for this setting, all brought to life by our passionate, talented team of artists. Will you brave the perils of the Infinite Manor, unravel its secrets and escape with your lives? Or will you remain forevermore within its halls, trapped in a cycle of suffering and torment without end? The choice is yours...if you have the strength to make it."
       
      It's got some really great art and cool monster concepts! Dalimar is pretty amazingly creative, too - I have 0 doubts it's going to be an awesome adventure.
