Reaper still succeeding at taking my money. I drastically cropped my wish list and still need to throw more money at this. At least this way I can sneak in a bit more now and continue to top up later.

I backed Reaper Bones KS 1-4 and thought for sure that I wouldn't 'need' much from Bones 5 and still ended up dropping $700-800 on this one. 

Surely, I can resist going hard on Bones 6.

That sounds familiar! LOL I said, as long as they don't have a bunch of dragons, I'm set. Then they did a pirate ship, the undead pirates, the undersea stuff, the stuff my daughter will love.... I'm saying now, I don't anticipate buying much in Bones VI, but darn it I know that's probably not going to be true.

:lol: Yeah. I have been trying to be good with kickstarters, not spending too much on them, but it's been tough LOL Almost got in on a 3D printer, but I have to be good, we're going to be moving hopefully next year so have to get finances in order between now and then. But, VI will be something I set aside some money for whenever it rolls around. Even at the 26 or so dragons I'll have by April, I could always use more, especially with how Julie sculpts them!

I've been in on all of them too. The first was my lowest amount. After that I decided to hedge my bets and not regret not buying something so went for $5-600 each. Even IV which didn't excite me a lot saw me buying hundreds of dollars worth. I'm trying to keep V small and still floating around $300 having trimmed to a "minimum". Finances and the fact I'm spending money on other stuff means I've been putting off paying for the last $150 on my wish list. But now I get to prolong the indecisive agony, I mean fun.

I'm pretty sure I said the same thing. I figured with the 3d printers & the library of figures I'd be safe. I still dropped about the same & still have some things for retail when they eventually come out. Reaper is about the only physical product I'll back now on Kickstarter. There is a couple mini makers but for sure Reaper.

You only need to pledge $1 to gain access to all the loot.

 

Just one teeny tiny dollar.

 

Then you can stop anytime you like. No pressure.

My Bones backing has increased with each KS. I missed out on Bones 1 due to losing my job that year, so Bones 2 was my first Reaper KS. I went "light" on that one, and still was above $200, and each one has become a larger dollar value overall. It's helped that I've gotten a better paying job since then, but now I'm dreading what the bill will be for Bones 6...

Well, I don't want to sound like a spoilsport, but as things are these days Bones V will probably be my last Physical KS I'll back.

I'm switching to pledging for STL KS only.

Physical minis I'll buy in retail from now on.

Maybe when the whole Brexit thing has cleared up and we'll know how it'll affect customs/shipping/vat etc.

But for now, I'll hold off.

 

I already almost regret backing TT Combat Desert of the Dead, supposed to deliver in May, then stuff happened and it's now not even shipped.

With Brexit looming it could turn out okay, but it could also mean having to pay 33% customs fee if it arrives after December.

And yes they told us it would not happen, but I'm not sure.

 

As for Bones 6.

Unless Reaper is going to find an European HUB I will not back.

Shipping from an UK HUB will have the same consquences for me as shipping from an US Depot.

I will have to see what happens when Bones V gets delivered and how customs will handle that.

Then I can decide.

      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
