A high level gantt chart would go well with your infographic, especially to show how much time 5 and 6 take, and that it's happening for 300+ minis. 



Hmm… wouldn't that bring back the problem of being too specific? Or am I overthinking what you have in mind?

They should be available as separate add ons like all the other Core Set minis. 


Also they are already available in metal, if that’s an option for you.

I'd wager there will be a good chance they could go on sale late september or early october 2021 ;)

Possibly, i was thinking something vaguely like this with the colors matching your descriptions put at the bottom of your graphic. No dates need to be added to it (please excusethe terrible finger drawing, best i could do on the phone)

So I just went back through the updates at the end of the Bones 4 campaign to see what some of the "special" unlock points were:

Core Set Extras were not added until 4 days before the end of the campaign (update 55)
at 46 hours to go, Fantasy Scenics were added as an additional stretch goal along side the previously revealed Blacksting at $2.21M (update 58)
Update 60, which announced the unlock of a core add-on at  $2.29M  also added the Blacktooth terror add-on stretch goal along side the previously revealed Stones Tiles add on at $2.38M
at 30 hours to go, Dance of Death was added along side the Blacktooth Terror and Stones Tiles add on at $2.38M (update 61)
At the $2.38M unlock, a core addition AND the skeletal dragon add on were announced for $2.48M (update 62)

at 24 hours to go, Treebeard was added to the $2.48M stretch goal. (update 63)
at 21 hours to go, Fan Favorites part one was unlocked (update 64)

Update 65 announced the unlock of the $2.48M goal. Nothing new was revealed in this update. 

Update 66 revealed a core addition stretch goal at $2.63M
Update 67 unlocked the $2.63M core addition, and announced the Stygian Barge pt 1 stretch goal at $2.8M

at 6 hours to go, Fan Favorites part 2 was unlocked (update 68)

Update 69 unlocked Stygian Barge pt one at $2.8M and announced the Stygian Barge pt 2 stretch goal at $3M
at 3 hours left, Nyarlathotep was announced as a $2.9M stretch goal (update 70)
Update 71 unlocked Nyarlathotep, and announced the addition of the Argent stretch goal at $3M along side Stygian Barge Part 2
at 90 minutes to go, Fan Favorites part 3 was unlocked (update 72)

at one hour to go, Sophie and Friends was added as a Core Stretch goal of $3.1M (update 73)
at 40 minutes to go, Fan Favorites part 4 was unlocked (update 74)
update 75 announced the unlock of the $3M stretch goals of Argent and Sygian Barge pt 2
at 15 minutes to go, the Talin Art Book add on was unlocked (update 76).
update 77 was the close of the KS at  $3.051M, and Reaper added the Sophie and Friends to the core anyway, even though the $3.1M goal had not been reached. 

Now, we can't assume that they'll do the same things at the same points this time, but I thought it would be helpful for people to see this. 


Thank you so much for breaking this all down!  I scanned through the B4 updates last night but didn’t have time to put it all together.


I first looked at the B4 maps and realized there were MANY things not even shown.  I think only Darkreach pt1 was even on a map.


I think once the pace of pledging accelerates, it’s just not possible to keep up, so they just started setting SGs $100k+ apart, unlocking multiple things per SG, and unlocking things without even having posted a SG for them ahead of time.

      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. :)

      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.
      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
