“The lady doth protest too much, methinks”

 


I’d say it’s 100% clear that GamerPrincess is a salesperson for the company, if not the guy that owns the company. Take a look at every post “she” has ever made on these forums - they are only to promote and hype this company’s KS. And the over the top way he or she hypes them, all the while claiming not to be affiliate with the company, or “know the company from Adam” while clearly being closely connected with them feels like listening to a particularly bad late-nite infomercial.


Attempting (and poorly at that) to portray yourself as just a fan, when it’s painfully obvious that you are connected with the company is just lame.
 

The blatantly sneaky and deceptive nature of these obvious company-backed sales posts has frankly made me extremely negative toward the company. I also wonder if it breaks any of the forum guidelines ...

If it doesn't break the guidelines, then the guidelines would need rewriting. 

Anyone affiliated with a company 'in the hobby' really should declare it in their tagline.

Especially considering the only things she posts about are Tomb Guardian KS projects.  How....coincidental.

The irony of it is that forumites here are perfectly happy to interact with company reps who identify themselves as such. There’s no good reason to pretend to be unaffiliated (and as others have noted it tends to be counterproductive, giving a negative impression of the company). The folks here are not dumb and don’t like being treated as if they are. 

 

Another irony is that the company’s product is actually quite good, as you’d expect given the sculptors they use. I have a bunch of them myself. The minis can speak for themselves if the marketing could just get out of its own way. I’m sure they lose sales by coming off as some combination of too aggressive and borderline desperate in tone, and those lost sales are probably with just to sort of people they need to build word of mouth interest in their projects. 

 

I will probably stay in this project, since I don’t have that many dwarves yet, but I have dropped out in the past and wish I didn’t have to decide whether the tone of communications is a red flag or just misplaced enthusiasm every time.

Good Evening everyone

 

I am the owner of Tomb Guardians and I was emailed by a few supporter who watches and blogs on the Reaper site.  They told me about what is going on here and I wanted to reach out and post a message.

 

First let me thank everyone that has supported us in the past, currently and hopefully in the future.  Next, I want to apologize for upsetting a lot of you due to our marketing attempts.  I was not aware of this until a little while ago.  Yes we are aggressive because as the owner I’m extremely excited and proud of our products.  I consider them some of the best miniatures on the market and we are very privileged to have the sculptures we do work for us.  I will have our email campaign back down and will go over that with our marketing manager tomorrow.  The last thing I want to do as an owner is piss off our clients.  
 

Lastly, we are being accused of having an employee posting in this KS page.  This is not correct Or accurate because no one in my company will push our products on a competitors site.  Gamerprincess is not our employee or any attachment to our company.  I understand she is promoting our KS but she is not my employee.  If anyone wants to discuss this or any other topics please feel free to call me at 614-656-7025 or email me at [email protected]  I have no issue discussing this matter or anything else.  I love my company and hobby!  
 

Tomb Guardians has a good relationship with Reaper Miniatures and I do not wish to end this relationship and only build it stronger in the future.  Again I apologize for the inconvience and thank everyone that has supported us in the past, current and hopefully future.    Please stay safe and pray you and your families remain healthy.
 

Cass Suwinski

Wow my post wasn’t to scare everyone away.  Lol.  We just hit our 9th stretch goal a couple of days ago.  11 days left in our campaign and a big add on coming Tuesday!  Can anyone guess what it might be?

Classic Jason Wiebe style. I like those. If anything, I do have a need for undead demi-humans.

^ Yes. Kind of a letdown, hey? I hope the next stretch goal is at $20,000 for the nice round number of it but also so we can quickly move on from these salamanders that all have way too similar of a sculpt.

 

On another note, I know there were a lot of people complaining about Tomb Guardians' excessive advertising earlier in this thread, but I think the unfortunate truth is that advertising works. This seems to be their most successful KS to date, by some margin.

I have backed, but am also a little disappointed by the 3rd Fire Salamander in a row. That being said, I think it is a decent bargain even without the SGs, so they are just a bonus for me. On the other hand, anyone still on the fence after 2 FS are unlikely to buy in based on a 3rd. I think the issue is I have only really seen them advertising through email- not anywhere else. I only clicked on the KS itself because of the sculptors they listed in the first paragraph- my Reaper purchases by that group have always kept me happy.

I am honestly surprised they didn't try and buy a mention at reapercon or similar- with such a large audience of miniature enthusiasts who already like the sculptors is would make sense to me. Given that the store's man models don't compete on price with Reaper, I don't think either company would need to worry about loosing sales to the other- people will go to each for their respective offerings.

Oh well- hopefully it continues to tick along through another few SGs before the close.

      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
