(Unofficial title: BaseBoss 2 - Electric Boogaloo ::P: )

 

The project is expected to drop sometime SOON™ so I wanted to go ahead and put up a topic here so y'all have a place to discuss. Please try to keep things reasonably on topic. We may make a separate information thread later on that specific questions and/or information may be moved to if it's deemed necessary.

I don’t keep up with social media anymore, so I’m definitely bereft of any rumors or details. 
 

If it’s just for common bases, I don’t need any of those. If however, they’re expanding their Bones USA line to begin producing cool bases I can re-base figures on (cobblestone, brick, terrain, sewer grates, etc.), then I’m def in.

I'll give it a look, but if the bases are anything like the current "small" base, as I see "angled", I'm out. (I really hope they add a new version of that base as the current one is sub-standard compared to the rest of the plastic bases they offer). If not there are other companies offering better ones right now.

 

Also, I'm not sure which lipped bases they are referring too either. I despise the round display aka "Dark Age" style of lipped base.

 

Again it all comes down to if I can use them in my games (mainly D&D 5e) or not. Again, hoping for the best with this one.

I'm really hoping they won't just be Games Workshop size bases.  There's a real need for 55mm as well as 70mm for those who play Infinity and want consistent bases. 

 

I also really do hope for some textured ones, since there have been a few teasers over time for such, and they'd be rather useful, doubly so since I presume they'd be in Bones USA so could be restocked and/or made on site (or in the same plastic the current ones are, that works too if they're as durable)

I'm in for any size or shape RPG style (straight sides) base they want to make.  If there aren't any of those, I'm likely to pass. 

ETA: Although, I will likely put in a dollar just to spam the comments with requests for RPG bases and in case they add them to the Pledge Manager afterwards.

Same, but...
 

Ed said all pledge tiers would be $10.

 

I’m not interested in any of the bases Ed said they’ll be producing in the Base Boss 2 KS. But I’ll happily spam the comments for 20mm RPG bases, 20mm slotted bases, 4” RPG bases, and 6” RPG bases. 
 

Details start just before the 49 minute mark of the Nov 4th Reaper Live stream. 

Lipped display bases: 120mm, 100mm, 80mm, 50mm, 40mm, and 30mm.


Game line (angled edge): 60mm, 28mm w/o slot, 25mm w/o slot, and 40mm.

 

Here’s a link to the video. Ed starts talking about it at the linked time stamp.

As a painter, I would love to see something similar to the "Green Stuff World" new hollow bases, as they are fantastic to make custom bases.

The Reaper RPG bases turned upside down work for this - they just have straight sides, instead of the angle.

Yeah I’ve been doing that trick for a while! It’s great because you don’t have to cut a base off of a figure. Just bury it beneath some moulding paste.

Yeah pretty much this. Interesting bases would get me. Plain bases wouldn't.

      Hey guys!

      I thought you might like to know that Dragon's Forge Miniatures is going to be running a dwarf themed Kickstarter in the new year, with loads of modular dwarf town terrain, an army of dwarf warriors and some fun townsfolk characters - all available to download as STLs for 3D printing, and with resin casts of the terrain available for those without access to a printer.

      We're posting updates and reveals regularly leading up to the campaign. Here are some links to all the preview articles so far:

      Build Your Own Dwarf Town in our New Kickstarter!

      The First Karvenheim Test Print Is Here!

      And here's a link to the pre-launch page, where you can sign up to be notified on launch: Karvenheim Pre-Launch Page

      Pre-launch page  here - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/reinaroja/suenos-the-art-of-gary-villarreal
       
      like their other one (Sombras) Reina Roja has chosen an artist with some just askew of normal surreal artwork to draw from.    His insta is here Gary Villarreal
       
      Looks like the only complaints on their previous KS (Sombras) were shipping delays and people who didn't seem to understand that they were ordering multipart resin models and were determined to kick up a storm about how this wasn't what they thought they were ordering.

      Our last update:
      Getting ready to relaunch!
      Dear backers,
      We wanted to share with you that we are working hard in the future relaunch of our miniatures campaign, and we already have the link to the pre-launch page, if you click on it, Kickstarter will inform you once we launch the campaign:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/juegorama/the-adventurers-and-monsters-28mm-plastic-miniatures-edition
      We expect to have everything ready for the relaunch in the next weeks, although we will inform you of the exact date before that.
      We also wanted to thank you for your feedback and for participating in our last survey.
      From a total of 239 votes.
      60% of our backers prefer miniatures in a 28mm scale.
      20% of our backers prefer miniatures in a 32mm scale.
      And 20% of our backers said that they would be fine with either option.
      This means that there is a huge majority of our backers who prefer a 28mm scale, so we can announce that we will relaunch the campaign with 28mm figures.
      We are currently working in several surprises for the campaign, and we’ll soon tell you more about them!
      Thank you for your support, more news coming soon.
      Juegorama

      But before launching on Kickstarter, I wanted to get some pre-feedback on the game box design that we've come up so far. Please refer to the photo below. We'd love to hear your thoughts! Thank you so much! 🙂 
       
       
       
      (August 27) Edit: Just finished reading the guidelines, so far I think I might not be violating any rules, except for the gif photo that I've posted here which I've taken down and replaced with a non-moving png 🙂 If I did misunderstand the guidelines please let me know so that I don't do this again. Thank you so much! 
       
      (August 26) Original:
      Hello folks! I'm not sure if this post is allowed and if it's not, I can remove it right away. 🙂 
       
      Just wanted to ask for feedback on the box design of a game that I'm currently developing. Hoping to hear from y'all, most of you guys are pretty experienced in board/card games. Thanks so much! 🙂 
       
      Gonna leave the Kickstarter project page link here as well as the Instagram link
