Right?  Fedex International Economy!  "Economy" indeed.

At that price and their buying power it should be overnight express, not economy! 

 

..Yeah, I know, in most cases economy gets here almost as fast but express is guaranteed one day, not 2-5...

What on earth are they using to ship it if its that bloody much? O_o

 

They're going to fire it out of an enormous cannon of course. 

 

So deeply hilariously pleased to know that "offer not valid in Quebec" still happens.  Nothing elfing changes.  Happy to keep money in pocket.

Horrible shipping costs to Canada, seriously. And the expected exclusion for Quebec.

 

Not even sure this is worth it...

I mean the base price for that amount of stuff is nice...

 

But I am no fan of these over-stylized, World of Warcraft-y aesthetics the new minis sport.


Obviously they couldn't go back to Warhammer aesthetics, but still.

(kinda funny how the original was Warhammer-adjacent and now this new one is made by the company that owns D&D)

I must admit I was saving up for a very special kickstarter (which doesn't have a thread yet) which is due to launch some time around late October/early November. I was struggling to work out how I was going to also afford whatever this new Heroquest announcement would be then Hasbro went and made it nice and easy for me with their regional restriction. Those orcs looks very Yedharo/GT STudios don't they? The Goblins have big Pathfinder goblin heads as well. Some of the new hero sculpts look similar in style to the Gamezone ones.

 

I suppose I should leave it a few more weeks before starting that special kickstarter thread. I know I want to be the one to start it but I don't want to start it too early as that might seem inconsiderate and rude. It still would have been nice if I had a way to scrounge up the money as I do have friends and relatives in America-land that I could post it to and then ask them kindly to send it on to me.

It would be interesting to know the market price for the game, once it is released.

 

With the insane shipping, it might be best for those outside of the US to wait for retail.

 

This looks like it's HasLab, and HasLab stuff doesn't go to retail.  It's get it now or get it never, like Jabba's Sail Barge.  I also believe this explains the high cost per item, the high shipping outside US, and the limited availability.  It's pretty standard for HasLab.  So anyone sizing this up should make their decisions accordingly.

This is one of those rare cases where it could be cheaper to get off of eBay.

 

As it is right now, it's a very easy pass.

      "And some good news here. We're preparing the new Kickstarter right now, called "Sitting Folks". Yes, we want to create a lot of miniatures in sitting poses. The launching date is about the middle of November. Yes, we're still painting rewards from the previous campaign, but the new one will not affect the process." -- from the Dwarven Forge Gaming Talk forum!

      Story
      Long gone is the time of Dwarves in Midlam, a city built over the ruins of their Middle Home, which lay between the Lost Mountains and the Southern Holds.  The Barons of Midlam have always claimed their city was gifted to them by the dwarves of old, and claim an ancient alliance, although dwarves have rarely been seen in the city, and must register their presence with the Town Council.
      Far to the North, so they say, lies the Lost Mountains, a place of legend and dragons.  It is said that many years ago, a dwarf came to Midlam in secret, hired two guides and headed North, never to be seen again.  There was also rumours that a group of grizzled dwarven mercenaries made the journey, but they too disappeared into folklore.
      Now rumours abound of Dwarven Adventurers, heading North once more, into the perpetual freezing wastes.  The frightened chatter speaks of their desire to rid the Mountains of the orcs and goblins and return the Dwarven King to his throne.  Nobody knows what truly lies North, but people fear the return of the old wars, rampaging dragons and a dark evil that has no name...

      is not your typical 3D printable figurine campaign. It is a fundraiser to help the evacuees whose home was destroyed by the volcano.
      100% of the profits will go to the Town Hall of Los Llanos de Aridane.
      And as a thank you for your help, you will get the 3D printable of the Fire Giant Epic Boss Hefesto, made just for this occasion, and his exclusive bust for this campaign.
       

      -----
      This bust is exclusive to this campaign, but there's also a full statue that may end up for regular sale later. 
      It's crowdfunded on a popular wbsite for buying .STL files, so I can't link there. 
       
      3 pledge levels, $15, $50, and $100.
       
      And there's way too many of the $15 pledges right now...   
      (I'm in for $50)

      I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. 
       
      IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.)
