KS : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-undead-or-alive/

 

Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale. <_<

I'm tempted as my FLGS plays the regular version all the time but I have  very hard distaste for CMoN thanks to their holiday sale a few years ago. Most likely I won't pledge.

What did they do in their holiday sale?

 

More or less reduced almost everything in their webstore, but it took forever to fulfill & things that were sold to people ended up not being in their orders after they confirmed items were in there. It was a mess. I think I got most of my order, but I recall there were a few items that went Out of Stock before I got my order, even thou they were in my order when I placed it.

 

They did charge me for items that I ordered but weren't in my order. I ended up getting back around 15 dollars worth in a refund. Which for that sale was quite a few figures. Overall they fulfilled but it took way longer then it should have. It was a Black Friday sale. Communication was iffy throughout the sale as well.

My guess is that they're not going to repeat that experience again, because, with Asmodee taking over things, they're not going to have a warehouse (or Time Machine) any more. Both were mess, but it looks like CMON's selling its excess inventory to Miniature Market (last seen with the HATE sale, but MM has been selling Wrath of Kings stock for years). 

 

That said, look at the comments for shipping issues. Night of the Living Dead (?) had French games sent to American backers (or something). CMON refunds to Massive Darkness 2 backers (because of unexpected VAT charges) are taking 2-3 weeks to process (?). CMON's sheer number of backers means you'll see more customer service issues, and that still means they need to improve customer service.

I'm pretty sure if I bring another Zombicide game into the house (after Zombicide 2 comes...) my wife is going to murder me.  I've got pretty much all of it thus far and we do play it a lot.  That said, the whole West theme doesn't do it for me so other than reading through the rulebook to see what special rules hey have have come up with that are worth including in our current versions.  Think I'm safe on this one...

When Marvel United arrives I'm already going to get dirty looks.. if any of the exclusives are cool I might look for them on the auction site..

 

Have they not fulfilled the entire KS yet? I ask cause I see minis on here & the basic box with Venom (wallymart exc) is at Wallymart here.

It's Two Waves.. the company they partnered with decided to release the core box to retail last August so they sent core boxes out if you wanted them, expansion boxes and wave 2 are just starting to get shipped

I am still on the fence with this one. I am a Zcide fan.  Starting with Green Horde and then getting base game Black Plague. Easy to teach new people.  Fun for kids and adults.  I enjoy painting the figures.  Looking forward to Z 2nd when it comes in April.  I am not a wild west fan but what will draw me in is the figures.  At $120 for the base I think it still a decent deal with all the figures.  It will get enough game time.

      A huge 2 for 1 KS!  
      (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! )
      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      Hi Chums! Sorry I left it so late to post, I have been ill the whole Kickstarter! Just scrambling now in the last few hours - despite this though it's going brilliantly!
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/badsquiddogames/women-of-ww2-soviet-russia-28mm-miniatures

      We are close to the last stretch goal now - an adoring fan for our guitar player! Yes you heard that right!
       
        

       


      Unlocks have been:
      Winter Tank Riders Pack A
      Winter Tank Riders Pack B
      Winter Tank Command
      Winter Tank Hunters
      Dzhulbars the Mine Hunting German Shepherd with handler
      Kneeling Sniper Team in snow suits
      Lyudmila Pavlichenko
      Anti Tank Rifle Team
      Traffic Controllers
      Winter Advancing Command
      Dancers
      Guitarist
       
       
      The Eastern Front is obviously a very grim setting, and whilst fascinating to research, it can get very heavy! This range has a much less jolly feel than the last load of Home Front British miniatures, for obvious reasons (being more front line based) but I wanted to add some endearment in there to make people smile. And when I research these projects, the people definitely make their way into my heart through the memoirs and photographs. So I'd like them to be having a bit of fun.

      So far we have the accordion player and dancers, and these will fit brilliantly with them to make a nice camp fire diorama (check out our camp fires too!).
       



      Cheers all!

      I didn't see this KS listed after a quick search.  I like the painters, and I like HD, but there's just so much free stuff out there now...
       
      Miniature Painting Masters
       


       
       
      Story
      Welcome Table-Top Fans!
      Welcome to the Miniature Painting Masters video series. Here you will learn the secrets of the world's best miniature painters!
      We have partnered up with 4 of the best painters in the industry. Each one will paint 12 different miniatures to their highest level of quality. Then you, the backers, will choose 24 miniatures for us to paint on camera (6 models from each painter). This gives you the opportunity to select only the very best work from each painter!
      NO EXPERIENCE REQUIRED! This series is perfect for beginners and professionals alike. Our goal is to help you quickly improve your skills by building upon each subsequent lesson. Each video will introduce new skills and techniques to help you quickly master the art of miniature painting. By end of the series - you will be a miniature painting GOD!

      I have some of Zabavka Workshop's resin but haven't played with any of their .stl files.
       
      Wargame Resin & .STL Base Toppers
       
      We know creating bases for miniatures is a struggle for many of us, especially when it comes to armies.
      It's a hell of a work...
      We realized that we are not alone thanks to the feedback from the backers of 2 previous projects on Kickstarter and our community.
      We share your pain and that's why we decided to create 100+ Unique Resin and 3D Printable (.STL) Base Toppers for our community.
      For this campaign, we've prepared 10 thematic sets of base toppers and several sets of elements for decoration.
      And this is just for the start, the rest depends on the speed of unlocking stretch goals😉
       
      We've specially designed them in the form of toppers to reduce the cost of printing for you.
      Because the cost of printing a round base is more expensive than the cost of buying a black plastic base.
