I think Gloomhaven is an awesome game, but in our family we've only played it a couple of times for various reasons.

 

It'll be available for retail at the same price on sale. I know some groups who have played the GH campaign at least twice, so this KS is for them. We only got halfway, and I bought Forgotten Circles on sale.

 

The KS does have some nice coins. $20 for 60 pieces, although I've never needed more than the 1's for Loot tokens. Still, hope they make retail as well.

 

Also, the $50 big box Jaws of a Lion will go direct to retail. I presume Amazon will have it at a discount. If you don't play GH too often, Jaws might be a better fit.

Not convinced on this one which is idd because I thought I would be all over it.

Here's something interesting:

- Frosthaven set a record for the first day in games (and probably for the first day on Kickstarter) since it brought in 5 million in its first 24 hours.

- If Frosthaven follows the thirds funding pattern, it will top Kingdom Death 1.5 and be the top funded game ever.

There are reasons Frosthaven might not follow the pattern- mostly because it lacks add ons which usually fuel most of the end spike.  However, Gloomhaven 2 only came short of tripling its initial funding by 10%.  If the same thing happens here, Frosthaven will end up very close to the funding total that Kingdom Death 1.5 brought in, and it is impossible to say whether it will end just a little higher or lower.

- So far, Frosthaven is bringing in enough to make it (ie- the slump is still being strong enough to bring in another 5 million before the end spike begins).

Definitely interesting! 

 

Ironically, I think I've spent more money hunting down miniatures for GH proxies than KD. :P Buying multiples of single miniatures is costly, yet multiples of a sculpt are too often sold as part of a larger package. And, GH has original designs for many of its races. Thank goodness I backed Bones, Massive Darkness, and Zombicide : Black Plague, but that's $350+ for skeletons, zombies, and orcs and goblins as bandit and Inox proxies.

 

I sure wish Reaper or even CMON would tap into the GH market by licensing miniatures. Both companies have clearly shown they can produce boxed sets of inexpensive miniatures. CMON routinely includes colored base markers and Reaper has experience making bases. The total cost might be much for boardgamers, but the GH product line would have fewer SKU's than the already existing blister pack SKU's.

I backed it with the intention of adding GH to the pledge manager later on.  Then they added the new pledge option that included both and I upgraded to that...  

and then I cancelled my pledge.  Not sure but the more this goes on, the less interested I am in the product, despite being really interested in the base and solo aspects of the game.

It has a retailer level. I'll try to get my FLGS to bring one in that way for me.

My FLGS burned down. Looks like I'll probably be getting this one directly.

10M and they are gunning to veat the KD:M total of 12.4M

 

10 MILLION DOLLARS!

This is an absurd amount of money! When we were planning this out, I may have wistfully mentioned that it would be nice to hit $10 million, but it was a pipe dream. And then once the pandemic hit, I thought it for sure wouldn't happen. But we threw the party anyway, and now look where we are! Thanks to everyone for making this pipe dream come true (the game as well as the absurd funding level)!

And we still have about 28 hours left! What other numbers can we reach? Well, I'm going to be perfectly honest with all of you: I want to hit $12.4 million, a number that would make us the #1 most funded board game project of all time

Blacklist Games teased in the comments that there would be some sort of announcement in the Frosthaven KS about BL's Fantasy Series I miniatures set.

 

If anyone backing FH can post the announcement, I'd appreciate it.

 

Dunno if there's really any cross between FH and FS1, as FS1 is mostly generic fantasy, while GH had many unique monsters. I do know that Isaac designed some stuff for BL's Altar Quest game, so they at least know each other. Hopefully, BL will make 'Haven miniatures sometime in the future!

Heh.  Kingdom Death just posted an update cheering Frosthaven on, and even backed the project as well. :)

This is all the info I have; no idea about cost, canon status, etc.

I decided to back Frosthaven in part due to Kingdom Death's post.  I guess I better finish the first one then.

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

        My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.    The first sheet The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full.                      Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?
       
      seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      "The Townbuilder is a web application with which you can create custom 3D printable buildings for Tabletop Games. We provide detailed 3D models in the form of small building blocks that you can then use to create the perfect building for your table. All of our buildings can be printed support free and feature playable interior.
      You can either start from scratch or modify one of our many prepared templates to fit your needs."
       
      This might be a huge step in 3d print files for buildings. With HeroForge, you can design your own miniature and get a printfile for it ... this here allows you to design multi-level buildings and get a printfile for them.
       
      This building was created with the use of the software and you can download it from the KS page for free:
       

       
      Open Beta is already up and running (link on KS page)
       
      I'm very impressed (and a bit happy that there finally is a project from Germany that is THAT awesome).
