Well there goes any enthusiasm I had for this one.

Thanks for letting us know. BLG says they're using IGG as a "pre-order platform" though I dunno if I'd take that at face value.

 

"As explained in recent updates, we have severed ties with our previous fulfillment partner/the company that bought them out. While we had originally been waiting on them to get the job done, the delays had stretched way beyond your patience and our patience. Our inventory there is scattered, missing, or in the wrong countries and they cannot provide us with proper information as to why. Rather than continue dealing with delays that are beyond our control and no info on how to fix things, we announced that we would take the financial hit to reprint products and restart with a clean slate by ensuring we have all this new, reprinted inventory at the QML warehouses." (QML = Quarterman Logistics) BLG is paying for this inventory by not paying one of their staff members, who headed the funding of the previously undelivered game.

 

That said, they're delivering Altar Quest. KS also has a policy that you can't run two campaigns at the same time, and BLG said they were out of SM stock now. And, of course, that reprint material has a greater profit per box, since the molds were already paid for.

Aha. Looks like BLG is planning to use the game system for other themes (they're keeping the dice generic for the game system instead of theming them to the horror genre). So, passing is a good idea if you're not enamored with the theme, and have the Fantasy Series I miniatures, which I'm sure they'll use in a future Dire Alliance game. Not only will you have reviews to read for a future KS using the same game system, but the designers will improve the game with any revisions to the game system. KS is not a store, but it's often a beta test program! :P

 

Of course, if BLG decides to make Altar Quest crossover content with the Horror miniatures as new monsters or Lurkers... :P

 

EDIT: Almost 30 additional miniatures, one hero, and one faction added, though Timed EB's skew the funding. Game comes with four heroes and two factions.

I may jump in on this.  I received an email the other day to confirm my address for Altar Quest, so should be showing up soon.

Yep. Altar Quest has been delivered, and someone posted pics. Mini's look good, and the backer enjoyed his first game. : https://www.instagram.com/p/CG1IDL_BmAR/

 

I would say that BLG has a high level of integrity and are not ones to walk away from a project (cf Cryptozoic), but that still doesn't mean they can't run into financial problems or project management risks. As said, before Quarterman Logistics, their previous fulfillment partner lost their inventory. We don't know what further financial hit the company can take. BLG is expanding, with the Sadler Brothers managing the company and spending less time designing games, and I don't know their previous management experience, other than they have fulfilled several KS and have some company management experience. (They met Alex LIm through Alex's assisting BLG entering the Chinese market.)

 

That said, you're probably still taking greater risks with less experienced one-man shops, especially on First Created projects. 3D printed .stl file projects look to be the least risky projects on KS.

I backed the fantasy KS as well. The minis are supposed to deliver in December, so we will see soon enough if the follow through it would seem!

Hey guys! So in regards to this:

the three projects we "haven't delivered" are all in various stages, one of which is currently delivering to backers, the other two on schedule for delivery:

- Altar Quest is fulfilling as we speak (AUS/NZ has gotten theirs, US/CAN is next week, EU too)
- Hour of Need is at the factory being manufactured and will be delivered roughly a month late due to COVID
- Fantasy Series 1 is also at the factory at this point, and is on track for its Dec 2020 date.

We have photos of the FS1 minis in our latest updates:

It's important to note that most small companies that rely on Kickstarter for funds (like us) need to run at least 2 projects a year to ensure we have enough capital to stay afloat! That's just the reality these days.

 

As for the Street Masters IndieGogo campaign, you'll note it is at "flexible funding" which means we keep whatever is raised regardless of if we hit out goal or not. In other words, this campaign is a pre-order campaign and is being produced no matter what (something we've been up front with our backers about, of course!), which explains why there aren't stretch goals, etc. The only reason it's on IGG is because of the sheer amount of SKUs we are offering for pre-order (2 campaigns worth of stuff! From 2017 and 2018, in other words).  This is not a project we consider a crowdfunding campaign, even if Indiegogo is essentially crowdfunding. To us, it was just a way to maximize exposure to potential new fans and also use a platform that allows us to organize large amounts of orders for large amounts of SKUS easily. Also, the reason we launched it now as opposed to waiting later is because we have a small amount of backers in the last Street Masters campaign who didn't get some products because our last fulfillment partner (who we broke ties with) decided to drop the ball (and lost inventory). So we are reprinting this line earlier than planned so our new fulfillment partner (who has proven to be AMAZING) will have our stock and those unfortunate backers can get the goods they are owed as soon as possible.

Sounds good!

 

Game-only : $50 : One additional faction, three leaders, two heros.

Mini's-only : $70 : About 30 additional miniatures, for about 100 mini's total.

 

If you have the Fantasy Series I set, then you already have the mini's for the Desecrated Faction Pack Add-on.

      This will have to do for now. This is short,  or it's been on a while. 8 days left.
      1-4 minis, kids on bikes (and/or skateboards) style, shipping included.

      Story
      Welcome to the Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Return to the Black Root Forest Kickstarter Campaign.  For many years, renowned sculptor Ben Siens has added great sculpts to our line of fantasy figures.  A year ago, we ran a successful campaign adding beastmen and treemen into our range of miniatures.  Over the past year, Siens has sculpted more wonderful figures for us and we decided to offer them to you via a second Kickstarter.
          Our primary goal for this campaign is getting the funds needed for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we get the funding for production molds, we can also keep Ben sculpting new figures for future lines.  We need you help to get this done so please pledge today!
        Our plan is to have 11 new codes but we will also be offering these along with the entire range of Ben Siens sculpted figures.
       
       
       
       
      There's only 4 days left in the campaign, so if you want some well-made 15mm goodness...

      Story
      Before the great rot, death was permanent. Unfortunately, death for those who were affected by the Soul Rot wasn't the end.
      The Soul Rot forced the soul to live on after the body gave up, condemning the soul to live forever in the state it left the body. These poor souls are known as Geists.
        Welcome to the first campaign by Fleshcraft studio!
              Working on a scary campaign for your DnD group? Or wanna expand the looks of your undead armies? Well, “unfortunately” for you, the ghosts have come to haunt you! In this campaign, you will receive a set of terrifying digital 3D ghosts in the .stl format.

                  Every model will have 2 options included:
      Presupported STL file. Download and print! Clean model. No supports   Pledges are very simple, and is boiled down to 2 types of pledges:
      1. Personal use - Get the core set + all stretch goals in the stl format. Ready to download right after the end of the campaign. Personal use only. Print ‘n’ Play.
      2. Merchant License - All of the above, but including a Merchant license, allowing you to sell physical copies of these models in your shop.
      This Kickstarter is the first of many more campaigns to come from Fleshcraft Studio! Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you can be a part of this growing community!
      When pledging to this campaign, you will receive the core set.
              The core set contains the following:
        5 x Unique modelled cavalry units on their trusty steed.   Geist Hunters in life, now cursed to eternally hunt the living on their ethereal mount.   All models come with a customized 60x35mm oval base
       
       
      5 x Unique modelled Infantry units with lethal finger claws.
      Dangerous criminals hidden away from society in the deepest dungeons, these crooks were sentenced to never see daylight again, yet, the Great Rot managed to find a way down to them. After succumbing to the Rot, these criminals are now bloodthirsty revenants seeking out to ravage anything in their way!
       All models come with a customized 32mm round base
