Not a fan of the two box format, but as a lifelong Marvel fan (and I dig Zombicide), I'm in. So many great sculpts in the box...except those dopey tanks. Definitely going to have to proxy in something less ridiculous.

 

And I play KDM with Zombicide minis, so I do have tolerance for ridiculous 😄

Massive Darkness 2?  Late.

 

Trudvang?  Much later.

 

Pass on anything CMON until I get those in.

At this point, if being late (from a company that has been delivering consistent quality projects for almost a decade) is a deal-breaker, I don't know why you're still doing KS. I personally prefer companies to push past fake deadlines and take the time it takes (my utter love for KDM is proof enough of that).

 

I have zero worries about MD2 coming in and being awesome (I like MD best of all the CMoN miniature games thus far). CMoN isn't exactly Low Life or Imbrian, nor even a Mierce.

There's a difference between being a month late, six months late, and over a year late.   Trudvang was supposed to be delivered December 2020.

And? Setting aside a 2-year-and-counting global pandemic that has disrupted all production and shipping worldwide.... Wouldn't you rather have a product that is more likely to be finished with some level of polished, rather than shoved out the door to appease some completely fabricated and meaningless "deadline" that was an educated guess at best?

How much more upset would you be with a half-baked and error-filled product? Hey, at least it was on time!

Also, every company I named in my post, both good and bad, are years late. Plural.

I backed the Star Realms Deluxe Kickstarter. That was meant to deliver in November 2020. However, it has been very clear that they're taking their time to ensure that the product meets the deluxe vision they had for the product, which has meant several things have needed to go back and forth through several iterations with the manufacturer to get them right.

 

I'm disappointed the product will be 18 months late, but the creators have been very transparent about everything and have shown us backers exactly what was wrong, how it was wrong and how it would be fixed. As a result, I've never felt like they were stalling or worried that they wouldn't deliver and would prefer they keep working through everything to deliver the best product possible.

I'm in on this one, even though I don't often get CMoN ones.

I'm backing it through my FLGS, so should save on some shipping.  And since I know the store is in on it (and at least one of the store owners has been talking about this for a few months now) I know local folks will be playing at the store, which is a big bonus.

I'm not a CMON backer either, but I enjoyed my friend's copy of Zombicide - Black Plague and I'm a sucker for super hero stuff, so I'm in.  

 

Not Galactus though.  That's a bit much for me.

Honestly, I don't think they delay these to perfect the games, they do it because they get one shot at printing and casting it all and putting it on boats and they won't do that at a time when they will lose money, or at least not make enough money, because of increased costs. 

This is turning my head but don't think I need half of the collection to comprise famous zombies.

      Story

                 Eerie in the contrast of their lethal size and silent movement, ScorpionMechs are deployed on the orbital and planetside battlefield when no quarter is to be given to the enemy, and none expected.  
                  They're colony killers.  

                  You send them in when you want the enemy base and any feeble defenders protecting it razed to the ground.
                These scuttling terrors can chop enemy armors in half in close quarters or pound them to pieces from a distance.  Using a variety of modular payloads, the ScorpionMech can tailor its weapons suite to the mission, whether it be cold, quiet up-close killing, napalm and gatling cascades at ballistic distances, or missiles beyond the horizon.
      (Pre-production 28mm ScorpionMech sample shown with additional Viper Suit weaponry.  Waldo and PugBots shown for size ref)

               Though they usually make their way overland to the target, there are rumors of ScorpionMechs deploying from orbit with bolted-on belly packs containing fuel and maneuvering thrusters.  The thought of an orbital insertion of these lethal machines is terrifying, but not beyond reason.  There is even a confirmed case of a jetpack-equipped ScorpionMech being used to rip a pirate raider's ship to pieces during an attempted boarding action.  Needless to say, scratch one pirate ship.
                Viper suit pilots may try and put a brave face on it, but when faced with a ScorpionMech, they know that the best place to be is somewhere else.

      Just launched a Kickstarter for a comprehensive line of 6mm Chinese Warring States miniatures.  There are 16 different packs to choose from, with all miniatures sculpted by Chris Smith of Wakes Emporium.  
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-chinese-warring-states
       
      The sculptor also has a Patreon focused on small scale miniatures, and is definitely worth a look for any 3D printing hobbyists with an interest in the smaller scales:

      Due to my inability to collect VAT, the KS is closed to pledges in the UK, but all miniatures will be made available to UK customers after the campaign via my Etsy store which remits the VAT for me.
       
      Some shots of the packs on offer:
