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.

      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.
