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. 

 

 

 

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.

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.

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      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!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
