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.

Help me Obi-wan, you're my only hope.

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.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
