I, personally, would like more flat, static pawns that get the point across.

A nice thing about the simpler, more static sculpts is that they often paint up faster, too.

If it wasn't for the Dark Depths expansion and me being loyal...I'm almost considering cancelling after all the hype about the ship and now this....almost...

I know I'll stay in for the rest, but I'm not really happy with this.

 

I was excited for this KS and it's been a real disappointment.  I think I just need to back away from this.

TBH, that makes it look as if the Chronoscope expansion is going to be scattershot again. 
 

 

Yeah, really. Santa was what they came up with?

I do hope the ship is not going to be the Argent of Bones V.

 

 

I'm going to call mine Argent, if it ever gets made.

I'm good with static pawns AND dynamic poses, but I like the variety. For a bunch of townsfolk I'm fine with everyone standing around. They don't need to be doing jazz hands in the background.

I'm aware of this. It would be just as easy for more experienced or percfectionist painters to break the glue and reglue it to their tastes. Either way you're dismissing the other person's concerns and making them do something they don't want to do. If my choice is paint minis or glue minis (which I couldn't really do even a few months ago) how much am I actually going to spend on Reaper product? A lot less because of retail markup.

No intention to be dismissive.

As to breaking and regluing.  Sometimes it's possible, in other examples the glue joint may be stronger than the adjacent plastic.

As others have pointed out, I trust my own assembly skills more than those  people who would fall under the bans of the Child Labor Laws in my nation, especially when those children are being paid piecework rates to encourage speed over accuracy.

If having to do assembly work is such a concern, then I would advise you to be extremely selective in your purchases, regardless of who the manufacturer is.

This is my first Kickstarter of any kind, and overall, I haven't been too disappointed, other then some small things I wish were offered separately in some of the expansions, but there you go. I'm actually glad there's a couple expansions and add-ons I don't care for, saves me money. What I don't get are some of the comments -not in here so much- about various minis. If you don't like it, don't get it. Just because I don't like the kids minis or the gem dragon doesn't mean I'm gonna broccoli on someone who does.

 

Gabba gooba, one of us!  :)  You've got the right idea there.

 

I think it's fair to wish the Expansions could be broken down the same way they break down the Core Set - lots of folks do, and I'd certainly pledge differently if that were the case (I'd pledge more than I am now!)  The Expansions seem to run on a different philosophy from the Core Set, in any case, and seem to have been pretty solidly set in stone as an all-or-nothing situation (unfortunately).

 

And I agree completely about the complaining and dogging on the minis that people don't like.  I think it's fair enough to talk up the minis for those who don't like them - they don't have to agree, but positive comments about unpopular minis - or just minis That One Guy doesn't like, are harmless.  Sadly, a few people take both sides of the equation pretty seriously - even constructive criticism can seem like an attack to some people, while saying something nice about something someone doesn't like can be fighting words for other people.  Whatever the case, constructive criticism and positive comments are OK in my book, while trash-talking the Kickstarter and models is just poor form!

I tend to avoid the Kickstarter comments, but I might need to start avoiding here too. I know people have legitimate concerns and worries , but I just want to enjoy the final few days and see what unlocks and hope I get the last two dragons before it is all over

I am genuinely sorry to hear this Siri as I suspect my airing of my concerns has contributed to your feeling this way.

 

The good news is that this too shall pass and I expect this thread to be back to normal in a day or two, so don’t avoid it for too long. :poke:

Back to the Twitch, I do have to give props to the paint woman and the beard man for being generally affable and likable enough to keep that stream from becoming an angry mob.

Yes very good to practice on.  Skin tones, cloth colors.  Very good training.

huge disappointment. 

Another one here hoping for the ship's price to be unveiled in order to help up the pledges. 

It has been a final weekend of pure stagnation. Since Greek III is already in sight I guess at least I will be able to complete that, but I seriously doubt we can unlock the two remaining dragons + tier 3 of depths, + tier 2 AND 3 of Brin, + whatever add-ons, encounters and/or core stuff there's remaining. Maybe it will be a miracle, but it's just too many stuff, there's just 4 more days... 

 

I feel like this KS has been a roller coaster with a great start, slow developement at the end of the first week and all second week, then another high with Greek and... really, really slow since then. Weird management.

      Right now it's just a Notify Me page.
      Not sure when it goes Live, but it's set to let me know.

      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.
