MMF is now offering their own Patreon alternative called Tribes.

 

I subbed to Print My Minis.....I might just go for White Werewolf Tavern for this month. We'll see how it goes.

I hope tribes goes better than the attempt at replacing KS.......

I never really cared for MMF's requirement to pre-pay for projects on their crowdfunding platform.   The only thing it really prevented was removing the ability to back out if something goes sideways.  I rarely backed out of Kickstarters, so it is what it is.

 

The only downside I see to tribes right now is just the proliferation of platforms that provide these services.  I think I'd prefer a single mediocre platform than having to remember/track all the subs and payments that I'll have as everything spreads out.  With Tribes, this will be the 4th platform (Patreon, Tribes, Loot and Infinite Heroes stand-alone)

 

My biggest beef with MMF is all the elfing pop-up adds.  Oh my God!!  Has anyone subscribed to their MMF+ offering?  Would it be worth it just to remove the adds?

I hopped on the 'Fantastic Plants and Rocks', I backed both previous Kickstarters (well, one was an MMF campaign...) and it's cheap so, eh. I'll keep my eye on the rest for now, and see if anyone else joins in.

It is particularly awful if you try to browse their mobile page. But, I haven't noticed anything since I switched to using Brave instead of Chrome.

I don't think I've seen any ads for MMF on my desktop.....my phone is a completely different monster. Ads you can't get rid of, or are next to impossible to navigate around.....

As for MMF+......the benefits, to me, don't outweigh the cost of the subscription. Maybe if they offered the Mars again (at least I think they stopped that promotion), then I might think about it. 

 

For now, some of the tribes are pretty affordable, so I will be keeping an eye of a few of them.

What's holding me back from joining a "tribe" is the lack of information about how it works.

Suddenly there;s this frontpage telling me I can join tribes..

No idea what's the catch/deal.

 

So far I have Heroes Infinite Stand Alone and I Support Patreon, switching from one to another depending on the theme.

How does this Tribes thing work exactly?

Wow,

I had a pleasant surprise again..

 

Subbed for CastNPlay for their Ancient Sands theme in September and now they provided me with the Deep Sea Tales from last Month as well.

It happened with ClayCyanide before.

Basically two sets for the price of one.

I wonder how this happens.

 

Not complaining of course.

Man, just when I thought RN Estudio wasn't going to offer anything cool in October, they go and do this:( (yah, my wife loves He-Man, so I lost the roll on this one).

I used to game with the guy that wrote the He Man RPG, back in the eighties.

Yeah... probably going to be re-subbing for that. Curious that they called it 'Those Woderful 80's', the poll had referenced He-Man. Makes me want to see what they might do with the theme in the future.

 

Also, a teaser from Lord of the Print, the Elder Brine Dragon:
