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.

Oh, man. I really wasn't sure what to expect with later add-ons, but now there's an Into the Spider-Verse add-on with Spider-Gwen in it. I'm going to have to buy that, for sure. Dang it...

      a new Impact! project offers 12 frog folk either for RPGs (with smaller heads etc) or as Chibis (with larger heads etc)



      you can buy the minis directly as physical prints

      or you can buy the STLs if you have a 3D printer of your own

      Digital Models - You can purchase the STL 3-D Print file for any of the below 24 models for $2 each. One entire set of STL 3-D Print files for the 12 models in either RPG or Chibi format is $15. All 24 STL 3-D Print files are $25.

      (NOTE: The RPG Frog Folk Merchant is available for as a free download below .. you do not need to buy it!)

      Physical Models - You can purchase individual physical copies of the miniatures for any of the below 24 models (see the image for price per a model). One entire set of 12 physical miniatures in either RPG or Chibi format is $65. All 24 physical miniatures for this KickStarter (both sets) is only $110. The sets are discounted for this KickStarter from the expected retail prices of $70 and $130 for the sets when/if they go to into our retail store.

      The physical models both RPG and Chibi are designed for an average Frog Folk Villager to be 28mm in total height when standing. Since most Frog Folk are shown of smaller stature than a Human in most RPG settings we feel this scale helps show that well.

      Free Sample!
      If you want a sample of the models, Cute Loot Miniatures is providing the RPG version of the Frog Folk Merchant for free to download for your review!

       This is a collection of Greek-inspired terrain pieces designed for 28mm tabletop  adventures. Build beautiful gardens for your adventurers to explore.
      Inspiration
      I built this set with the upcoming Theros campaign in mind. I wanted to start making scatter terrain pieces that could fit into that world and capture the beauty of Greek Architecture. Since all pieces are scatter terrain, the possibilities are endless on how you want to lay out your garden. I will be adding new pieces through the stretch goals that focus on changing the state of the garden. I am thinking of adding vines to create more of an overgrown, abandoned garden, as well as creating damaged versions of pieces for an ancient look.

      Hello all,
       
      We launched our Kickstarter for Studio X four days ago, and it's funded. The Studio X Mobile Painting Studio is for the miniature painter on the go, or has a limited work area.  It's lightweight, compact (8" x 8" x 13.5") and durable; it's perfect for going to conventions, your local gaming store, or painting with friends. 
       
      Studio X holds up to 60 standard dropper style paint bottles as well as a combination of miniatures, tools, bits, and sprues.  It also comes with a removable brush/tool hanger that can be mounted in your work area.  
       
      Come check out our Kickstarter .  
       
      If you have any questions, please ask; we are more than happy to answer.
       
      Thank you
