4 Days to go and I have us at a 50/50 to catch Bones 1. Nice movement today. I haven't factored in CR appearance so that may blow me out of the water. Backers is the same story. We are way ahead of Bones 4 but I think it is unlikely we will match their endgame (we don't need to). It will be a fun last couple of days.

Hmmm... 1400+ backers in 3 days will be a tough one. 

Need to average 16 new backers per hour to break Bones One record.

I see that as doable for the last two days and a big question mark for the time between now and the reminder emails kicking in.

I haven't read it, but I assume it's great as I love his other books. It also reminds me of the mummy 3, and Uncharted yeti scenes. 

I haven’t read the book, but the movie was pretty good. Tim Curry, Ernie Hudson. Cast was pretty good too. 
 

Congo, that is... and Amy is a good gorilla.

Bones 2 got 1530 backers in the last 4 days and seems to be the most similar Ks to this one. So tough but I think 50% is the best guess for right now.

okay even in my 40's I'm still a little embarrassed when painting female nudes. 

scantily clad is fine.  I have never tried see-through cloth, but I imagine that I would have to be so focused on technique that I would feel no embarrassment (unless it turned out badly)  

 

Whereas I like painting semi-nude men, especially if they are larger than 32mm, so I have room for fun muscle details. 

- never painted fully nude male, but it would likely be just as embarrassing. 

 

:lol: You aren't alone; it's still feels kind of weird when I'm painting female bits. 

 

These lovely fellas, though... Well, one of the nice things about being married is I'll have a handsome scale model for reference. Plus an excuse to have him lounge invitingly on a couch nearby while I'm painting... :devil:  :lol:

 

Yeah I'm totally getting these when they're unlocked! :lol:

Agreed. I'm leaning toward we'll be close but not quite make it. However, this KS has surprised me several times, so we'll see. I do like the treasure golem (yes, our party has legit fought such a thing before :lol:)

 

Huzzah!

I wonder if we get close when the KS ends  whether they will just go ahead and unlock it.  Reaper has seldom just left a revealed stretch goal like that locked.  Or, their analysis shows them there is a very very good chance we will reach the required numbers.

Hmmm, so far, none of the encounters has really done it for me, a fact for which my wallet is eternally grateful since I think all of them added together is more than the ship. What did surprise me was that the last reveal for the Greek Odyssey really pushed me from "wait for retail" to "man I really need this".

 

My sentiments exactly.  I pledged $120 but knew I was never going to get the core set, rather that was my 'kitty' to spend as I saw fit.  Was getting concerned that I wouldnt really find enough of interest this time around but that Greek Xpac part 3  moved it into must buy territory.  Just waiting for the last dragon or two (and Murkillor dammit!) and i should be good...

My guess is that it will depend on how close we get vs how many people they expect to sign up in the pledge manager post KS. 

Could be one of those like part three of the Stygian Barge, where it "unlocked" a few weeks after the pledge manager opened.

      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
