I hope it is miniature less. Chibi and Marvel will be my downfall. Trying to swear off CMON due to their other projects and the stupidly expensive shipping.

Your hopes are in vain, sir.

 

I found a preview vid that had some renders in it for the announced characters.  I'm not sure if it will be enough to get me to pull the trigger on a CMON project or not, but they've certainly got my attention.

The shipping really has gotten out of hand with CMON. We'll have to see how this turns out...

Shipping has been subsidized for so long that the real costs have been hidden (particularly for Americans).

 

I was so excited for this until I saw chibi which makes it a hard pass.

yes people are now seeing what shipping actually costs (which keeps rising fast too)

 

 I do like chibis but i'm not interested as the proportions on these are just not to my taste (thankfully)



Yeah- I shipped something in the latest box I got from CMON.  The stuff I was shipping was lighter, and I was shipping domestic, but it still cost $60.

I get the impression that CMON are the only ones charging actual shipping costs right now.

This is now live.

 

They've unlocked the first few models, and CMON are definitely taking some direction from the MCU: Blade, Shang-Chi, Ms. Marvel, Taskmaster, etc.

 

The base pledge is $60, the Infinity Stone expansion is $30.

 

want to, but I'm sensing a lot of add-ons.  That, and what's left of my common sense/restraint, may keep me out.  I still think it will be fun to watch, though.

=====================================================================================================================

For some reason, I can't add a new post, but I can edit this one...

 

Lots of KS Exclusive items.  That seals the deal for me...I loathe exclusives.  I don't mind promotional materials, special packaging, etc. but game play exclusives really rub me the wrong way.

Good thing they have minis because the gameplay looks fairly uninteresting.

So many KS exclusives it hurts.  It is clear how they want to drag you in on this.  Seven heroes (so far) you can only get if you pledge? Lordy, CMON.

Yeah, not big on the chibi's, either. Random guess is that WizKids has the rights for the 28mm sculpts.

 

Also, with the short-term economic impact of the coronavirus on China, most small and medium companies having cash reserves for up to two months, factories only being opened for essential items (definitely not plastic miniatures), and CMON itself located in Shanghai, one of the countries hit hard by the virus, I'm jumping off the fence. Maybe by the time the PM opens, everything will be fine, at least until it's not. Also not helping is that some miniatures I like are in the expansion sets, so I'd pay $25 for five miniatures, of which only one I want.

 

Well, at least today you have more choice in your Marvel game of choice. Back in ye olden days, a company would have exclusive rights for a boardgame, and, more often than not, the game wasn't worth playing. Now, you have, what five Marvel games to choose from? FFG's Marvel card game, SJG's Munchkin Marvel, HeroClix, that nonstandard scale miniatures game, and now Marvel Chibi.

      Story
      By popular demand, we are giving everyone a second chance to own a gorgeous piece of Myth lore!
      The World of Myth is based on the highly sought-after Myth Limited Edition book. It shares the same high-quality leather binding and gilded pages, as well as much of the exceptional art and lore from the original. However, it also includes dozens of pages of brand-new content!
      These new pages will provide readers their first look at parts of the Myth story that have yet to be told, including stories by Brian Shotton:
      After the siege of Farrenroc, a Wall-commander loses faith in the Bright Legion, challenges the Commander-General's strategy and loyalties, and begins a journey to expose the secrets that have led to the deaths of so many of her soldiers. A master storyteller weaves a tale of love and jealousy between Anunkara, the Sun, and Lunankanen, the Moon. But is there more truth to the story than she knows? For those who are new to Myth or who missed the Myth Limited Edition rulebook, this book still includes much of the fantastic world-building from that previous volume, such as:
      Lore overviews for every hero class introduced so far Guidance for solo play, including multi-class deck construction The Art of Myth A full bestiary, including brand-new information about the Lucanines Whether you are a veteran hero or are just beginning your journey into Myth, The World of Myth has many wonderful new things to discover. 
      This is a small, straightforward campaign, so we’ve kept our reward levels to a minimum. We are mostly concerned with offering a leatherbound Myth lore book for everyone who couldn’t get one before. However, we wanted to make sure that anyone who had picked up the previous LE book had a chance to see the exciting new content!
      Digital Acolyte
      This is the perfect level for everyone who already owns the Myth LE book and doesn’t want to pay for another physical book with overlapping content. We’ll send you a full PDF of World of Myth, plus you’ll get digital versions of all the stretch goals. That means that you can print them and play with them as soon as we have them ready to go! 
      World Weaver
      This is the core reward level for the campaign. It features the physical World of Myth book, a gorgeous leatherbound collector’s item that you can proudly display with your Myth collection, whether you have one already or are getting ready to start one. You will also receive a digital version of the full book, and both physical and digital versions of every stretch goal unlocked. 
      We want to keep our goals manageable so that we can get you your rewards as soon as possible. With that in mind, we’re sticking to a combination of cards (which we can print quickly) and digital rewards that do not depend on shipping. The cards will be available digitally so that all backers can play with them, regardless of reward level.

      Story
      Five years ago, CONAN the board game became a massive hit and spawned a faithful community of players, designers, and enthusiasts. Brand new content has been long in coming, but it’s finally time to unlock the remaining quantities of 1st Edition boxes alongside the release of our biggest Hyborian Age expansion ever.
      Those who wish to wet their swords for the first time and veterans from previous campaigns shall join ranks and heed the call of Conan the Conqueror!
      Not only is the Adventure Mode (our original one vs many system) gameplay you know and love making its return, but we’re also adding a revised version of the solo/co-op rules featured in the Conan Monolith Sourcebook. Regardless of which version of Conan you own, or plan to purchase, all of the new content will pair perfectly with what you have.
      To celebrate its 5th Anniversary, we are making the Conan: The Boardgame, the 2015 classic 1st Edition available again in limited quantities. Combined with the new mega-Conqueror expansion you’ll be able to enter the savage worlds and raise your own bloodied sword. 
      This new expansion will boost options for ALL owners of the Conan Board Game. To play all of these new scenarios, you require only the core version of the game; however, King Pledge and Barbarian Pledge owners will find further options in some of the included scenarios.
      All of these scenarios will be presented in the Tome of Skelos: a 60+ page hardcover book in the style of our previous titles. Inside, you will find 6 brand new scenarios for the original Conan Adventure mode (one vs many mode) that make use of all the new miniatures, maps and tiles. We will add a seventh scenario if its Stretch Goal is unlocked.
      We’ve also included an updated version of the solo/co-op rules that debuted in the Conan Monolith Sourcebook as well as a campaign of 7 specially designed solo co-op scenarios, where players will choose their heroes, gather equipment, and gain powerful Boons to complete their escape across the Pictish Wilderness. The Version 1 rules can be found below as well as a description of the gameplay. The Tome will also feature brand new artwork created for this campaign.
