What do people know about this company? 6 created but seems like an awful lot of stretch goals even at the low tier

 

A couple of years ago I went all in for one of their undead graveyard kickstarters. There was a slight delay getting it out if I remember correctly but everything looked great and was just as advertised in the KS campaign. The resin pieces needed very little prep to get them paint ready and the details were great. I went in on their Battleruins: Temple of the Damned KS recently and those appear to be on track for completing on time. Their communication is pretty good too. They publicize their production timeline and let backers know when they hit goals on that timeline so you can see how closely they stick to their schedule. It's a bit on the pricey side, especially with shipping to US from Spain, but it's a good product that I think is worth it. I'm still on the fence for this one, but only because it's the holidays and don't know if I want to spend money for a kickstarter right now. If this had come up in the summer I'd almost certainly have pledged already.

So lowest tier for 12 Euros (19 Cdn) gets you either the skull, the statue, or the 3 stones, and 5 skulls. And stretch goals: 1 gargoyle, 2 obelisk, 1 menhir, 1 beast skull, 10 skulls , 1 books set (2?), 2 tentacles, 2 piles of books and 1 set of candles, 1 necronomicon, 3 daggers, a sprue of skulls and a banner, likely 1 m of bronze chain, and unlikely a pool with skulls. That seems reasonable for bits.

Edit estimated shipping is 16 euros, which makes it seem a lot less reasonable, but that still works out to about 45$

You can price out the retail value of the stretch goals pretty easily on their website - e.g. the 10 skulls and 5 candles are each about half of a 5eu set, so those are about 5eu. Probably about 10eu in stretch goals.

I remember now not backing the undead graveyards because of the shipping and the stuff I wanted was way more than getting a skull wall mold and casting a bunch of stuff.

I think the retail value of stretch goals could be more than 10€, about 15€ approx.
But even if we take 10€ as an example, that means that for a 12€ pledge you get 10€ of extra stuff for free, so really the shipping cost you pay is 6€. I think it's a good deal.

I'm in with all in pledge, and I want the cultists! I hope the goal is achieved.
I'm helping to share the project, I want the free cultists miniatures ::D:
 

I have supported several Hammerlot campaigns, the models are very detailed as seen in the photos, and of good quality, I did not find air bubbles in the resin pieces.

I think I will upgrade my pledge to All-in, the free cultists miniatures will be unlocked very soon.
They also have to unlock a creature that can be used with my undead army!
Great job.

The cultists are unlocked, and they are very close to the next unlock already (the skull-filled cauldron?) I’m very happy about the 4 cultists. I was really hoping we would unlock those, and they were a small part of the reason I backed at the €120 level. 
 

22 hours to go!

Campaign is over. They did end up topping €21k, and this unlocked the last revealed stretch goal.

I’m stoked for these, and will likely get several of the extra add-on menhirs (there is a KS exclusive €5 add-on of two Cthulhu menhirs, which is a killer deal; 3 arcane menhirs is €11).

      The huge core set of 80+ interlocking spaceship wreckage parts is delivered as stl files. It features incredibly detailed, double sided hull plates with internal features, computer terminals, piping, machinery, airlocks, windows, rooftops, debris sections as well as attachable ship featuressuch as boosters, engines, landing gears, weaponry and hi-tech gadgetry such as sensor arrays.

      This is the Bones 5 Information Thread.

      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 5 Kickstarter.

      This is the thread for information and questions.  
      This thread will be moderated to ensure forum rules are followed.  
      Posts of chatter and enthusiasm will be relocated to the Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89441-reaper-bones-5-enthusiasm-and-commentary-thread/
