I'm hoping the walrus and keeper are fully removeable with minimal touchup on the lighthouse because it will make an excellent beacon tower..

That’s just it, the ‘lighthouse’ can be soooo many things for RPG use at my game table. The versatility of such a piece is grossly unconsidered.

We will start adding Extras from the Core Set tomorrow, notably:

Wolf Pack

Mudmen

Town Guard

Honeythorn Lancers

 

Oh perfect. I want a pile of mudmen. I don't actually own any wolves, so I was hoping they'd split these from the core set.

I had no idea I wanted a lighthouse mini bigature.  And a walrus. Guess I might want to pick up an overtime shift or two lol

Yeah, I only wanted to see a lighthouse because I expected it to drive pledges; I never intended to get one.  But based on the concept art, and considering the lower-than-expected price, I want one.

I was literally just thinking that it would be cool to have some sort of tower scenery for the table. Spent my lunch break looking at the Renedra tower, and then this came out. Now I can have a tower with a walrus!

I like the caravan idea being thrown around. But I guess it's save to say at this point they've made all their plans and sketches already and we're just waiting for the reveals.

Nice to see the campaign picking up speed even before the 48h mails go out, we're 13k away from the last unlock already and should see the Bugbears unlocking tonight.

I was initially annoyed by the whole lighthouse joke/meme thing, but now that someone drew it up and sent it to Reaper,  I'm glad they decided to go forward with producing one. I think I'm going to get 2, I can see a lot of uses for them.

Lighthouse - Check. Initially missed the joke about it, got sick of hearing about it, but part of me wondered if it was going to pop up anyway. 

 

Very happy it did. It'll go well with the ship, be a very cool terrain piece, and for $30 with the minis, I think it's a steal. (I don't know where you all are finding cheaper scenery! If I ever saw something like this in a store, with two detachable minis - especially if one was a walrus, and one with a seagull on his shoulder, I'd grab it without hesitation. And I don't think I could DIY something as good for the money/time) Plus, as it's a KS only, if I didn't get one I'd get FOMO for sure!

 

Core set - I'd already decided to get this, had justified the cost and was committed, so I'm always happy to see it get bigger (and I'll grab a couple more bee lancers to make a full squadron). 

 

I'm going in for all the expansions - for me, there's enough easily in the revealed ones to justify them to myself. I'm just on the edge of my seat for Tombs and Dungeons, I want to get the full sets of those.

 

GG was an on-the-fencer, but based on how much I still love the Brinewind set and am blown away by the quality of the terrain I'm trusting in Reaper to pull it off. (Plus their old fire place is 10 bucks by itself and I was eyeing it off for dressing anyway, the GG one is way cooler). 

 

Paints, yup, no brainer

 

Add ons - tbh, I'm pretty keen on them too. all of them pretty much, except the chibis (not my style) and the orcs (nothing against Jackson - I'm just orced out).

 

Sometimes I feel like either my tastes mustn't be as selective as others; I'm finding it very easy to talk myself into pledging more than my pre-KS brain budgeted.  

 

Whenever the tiny unwelcome voice of adult budgeting peeps up, I just look at my past Reaper orders (all over USD 100, all with substantially less in them) and compare them to the value offered in the KS. 

 

The next 2 days are going to be a wild and emotional ride!

This is how I have been feeling too.  It might have something to do with me not having a big pile of unpainted plastic at the start of this because I am relatively new to collecting and painting miniatures.  On the other hand I do have hundreds of old and new metal minis, between a bunch of inherited ones that I used as a kid and a bunch I have purchased over the last year, more than a few still unpainted.  Also, I do now have a pile of plastic minis, the Bones 5 core set freshly purchased from Ebay (I couldn't resist, and it will be a long wait for Bones 6 to ship!), and that did not dampen my enthusiasm even a little.  So I will be buying most of the things, including a lighthouse I really don't need, some gnolls that are just too good to pass by despite how many I already have, and a really big dragon that I don't have the faintest idea what I am going to do with him.  The bottom line is that almost all of these minis are really, really good, and the value is fantastic.
