Good for that audience, but also a little odd due to the wait time with this KS. It isn't an "ooh, I can get that as a holiday gift because it fulfills in a month" sort of KS. It also is odd to go "In two years, I'd like to learn to paint". If you want to learn to paint, and are inspired now, you'll be a pretty good painter by the time this fulfills.

 

The best use of the LTPK, in regards to the Kickstarter, I think....

Buying it for younger family or friends. Gifts for kids who are 6-10 now, who would be ready to paint when they're 8-12 years old.

 

Not that this is a bad addition - it is nice. But it is a bit of an odd niche. Critical Role certainly is a great spot for advertising though. I suspect the Core set would be a good way to tease that crowd too, since gamers need flingable minis.

So at 8:00 PM Reaper time we had 16,226 backers, and had picked up 8 in the previous hour.

 

We now, at 9:30 have 16,271 backers.  A noticeable bump versus the previous hour, but not the hundreds people were hoping for.  But, the show is still on.  Maybe more will check it out after Talks Machina is over?

The learn to paint kit with 12 of the Bones V minis is a bit of a puzzler to me.

Wonder if there’ll be an option just for the paints.

Intriguing, but so odd they don't mention the actual colour names...

My GUESS (I don't actually know anything about this) is that they are probably going to be new paint colors, which have not yet been named (or possibly mixed). /speculation

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

Here's hoping such is the case ^_^

If I'm not mistaken, I think the basic Learn to Paint kit that is already out actually has a paint color or two that Reaper doesn't sell otherwise, so it's certainly possible.

Based on other promotional stuff in previous campaigns, the bump is usually spread out over a day or so.    A lot of those nearly 15k watching it now are going to wait until the show is over to check things out.   And then we have the people who will watch it tomorrow or Thursday.

      Nice models and one of the SG is a 20% discount on the Kimera Colors range (They will open a pre-order for their "almost-impossible-to-buy" colors at the end of April)

      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      More villagers for your town!
       
      Many of these poses are unique and, afaik, unavailable elsewhere.
       
      All In Pledge shows all sets available in this KS. Sets and smaller bundlers are available, and sets from the previous Villagers KS are available now from the creator's website.

      Another one from Crippled God Foundry, focusing on ruined terrain (with non-ruins as a future stretch goal) and more creepy Undead and graveyard dwellers.
