I wonder if this will be a new method for digital fundraisers. I'm in but I wonder if people will like using this as opposed to KS or Indiegogo. 

 

I backed, mostly because I backed the first one on KS.

But like I mentioned in another thread, I wouldn't back a company I didn't know well like this.

The big difference is paying up front, I would probably wait till the goal was met and then back just to make sure.

With KS one could cancel his/her pledge if a red flag would pop up or if something happened in your financial situation.

 

So, this is not what I would prefer.

 

All in all, this one is a great one.

I got a discount because I backed nr. 1 and getting a few exclusive files as well.

It's great value.

It's pretty much just a direct purchase at this point. Files to be delivered in 30 days.

Ditto. I pretty much did the same thing and not sure I like this approach.

Yup. I learned about the Fearsome Creatures Kickstarter after it was done and was able to back on MMF at the same KS price and was able to down load it immediately which makes backing before it is available not very helpful. I probably wouldn't have backed this on except for the early bird and discount fir backing the first one.

There is a comment section, though, as well as an update section that is currently unused.

Considering that a majority of STL KS are already using MMF for fulfilment, this is just the next step. Compared to Kickstarter + Backerkit + some hosting service this is an all-in-one service. Another advantage compared to KS is that there is no need for a credit card. On the other hand, you pay upfront and can't back out, so it's mostly for safe KS, but most STL KS fall into that category anyway.

They'll probably go after Patreon next, which I appreciate, especially if I no longer have to pay 19% VAT.

(MOD) I removed the link because MMF is not an approved Crowdfunding site.. yet  I'm working on expanding the site options, but I worry that MMF is too close to a commerce/pre-order link more than a crowdfunding link.. I'll leave the topic open for discussion though

Sorry, wasn't aware of that.

Maybe next time we should just say...crowdfunding on MMF for Company X?

Many Patreons offer their minis on MMF.

For Patreons the monthly theme pops up in their library to download then.

So I doubt that MMF is going to take over and eliminating VAT.

Yeah, I don't see Patreon going away anytime soon.  For a lot of creators that is a great source of ongoing monthly income and it's only growing as 3d printing becomes more and more popular.

 

Sadly, I'm not backing this project simply because I got so much variety from the first one and this one just isn't grabbing me.

And I also miss the community aspect of KS.

With this typ of crowdfunding it's just a sale.

I have mixed emotions about that.  When The community is good its great!  Then it's not it can turn vicious and toxic almost overnight.  At least this stays neutral.

 

On the flip side there really isn't much incentive not to wait until it's done and then cherry pick what I really want

I'm happy to back in this case, since I liked nr. 1 and I can use small terrain.

It does feel more like a sale than a kickstarter to me.

Not much anticipation it just feels different.

      Before the known ages, the ancient gods, who were traveling through time and space, between galaxies and systems, between planets and moons, finally reached this small blue planet and its light gray moon. Millions of years ago, searching for the force on the dark side of this moon, they found the crystals that emitted enormous energy.
       
      They took it with them and returned to the blue planet. With the use of the power from other dimensions they try to warp the crystal and use it for their own dark plans.
      It quickly turned out that the crystal emitted too much power, a power that did not harmonize with the forces of the Ancient One. The symbiosis caused conflict and damage to the ancients. The warped crystal had been abandoned by them here... and for millions of years, it had lain, covered by layers of earth and sand in the darkness and silence...

      Hi.
      Greetings from Andrzej (Ater), Jakub (MiniaturesArtTeam), and Pawel  (PJG_sculptor). For some time we were working together on something on the side which finally became a big miniature project. We plan to put it together in a board-battle game!
       
      But let's take small steps and start gently. In our first project, we want to offer you some miniatures from the world which were shown to us in the dreams by one guy, who calls himself Cthulhu (we know... it is quite weird, but the dreams were really cool).
       
      Inspired by these visions, we create a new universe in the dark, steampunk/dieselpunk climate. Now we want to show you our project and we cordially invite you not only to participate in the project itself but also to create it. Please, share your thoughts and opinions with us! Please come closer, sit down and hear a story about the Crystocracy.

      Another KS by Titan Forge. I have to admit that I haven't played Bloodfields yet, but I like the minis.
