They are stepping back from the "Ship details on Monday" statement... Might not be until tomorrow or Wednesday.

that's likely going to make today one of the worst Bones KS days ever.

Aw no!

That could've brought in the money!

 

Is the KS getting too succesful maybe?

See, this is the main downside of daily info streams.

 

Don't promise content unless you KNOW you can deliver! People take you seriously no matter how often you claim "lol not professionals tee hee". It makes people more likely to dismiss you in the future when you ARE trying to be serious!

Very un-professional to not have the promised info today. Extremely aggravating, having a very hard time at not making some snarky comments

As an aside, I for one am happy that Reaper's included some dragons in assorted smaller sizes this time around! 

 

I started a project in which a dragon that fit a 2" base would have been perfect, and found that Reaper really didn't have very much of a selection for that sort of thing.  I managed to improvise, but the dragon I went with wasn't quite what I had in mind, while everything else was just way too big!

 

And yeah, I'm betting on a fantasy-themed arctic encounter, but it is fun for me to imagine what an arctic-themed Mythos encounter might be like.  I'm definitely right there with everyone supporting a Chronoscope Kickstarter, in any event:  I'm primarily a fantasy gamer, but I think we'd all be richer for having better miniatures support for other genres, while I love finding ways to adapt "non-fantasy" minis into the fantasy genre. 

 

It seems like, in spite of the likes of "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks", Burroughs' John Cater/Barsoom series, Star Wars, Yor: Hunter from the Future, and Masters of the Universe, fantasy began to atrophy in the 1980s, losing a great deal of its broad scope and willingness to play and experiment with settings and ideas, to a narrowly-defined "generic medieval European fantasy" where almost anything else gets rejected as being "not realistic enough" for "generic fantasy", which, fairly or not, I blame in part on the merger in the '70s and '80s between fantasy as a form of art and literature, and the (largely Euro-centric) historical tabletop wargaming genre in D&D, while D&D and its' clones effectively elbowed anything else out of the way....

Outside of the disappointing ship no new, anything interesting on the twitch stream today?

15 minutes in, and nothing new.

Make the snarky comment! Sign it "from the hamster" if it helps!

And frankly, they ARE the professionals. They should know better by now. If they didn't specifically know, a note of "info on the ship as soon as we can, probably in the next few days" is better than "on Monday".

 

I imagine a lot of the slow pledging right now is due to people waiting to hear about the ship price, then drop more in. Without that, they'll need to do something to compensate.

      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!
