Teaser from Jason Weibe today:

Plus Ed says there's a secret stretch goal where they'll add bases to the KS.  

 

 

Generic plastic disks or sculpted bases? Another bag of basic plastic disk bases does precisely zero for my interest, especially 2 years out.

I believe the words "Base Boss" were mentioned, no specifics were given.

...oh no.  That's promising in a 'guess I have seven owlbears now' way.

It's the traditional 50 1inch rounds.  It's in one of the KS updates

Also revealed in the KS updates is the 3-stage barbarian we'd seen before:

I like the 3 stages. Thought they could have made it a little more fun. Add one more stage. The Old King, he should be Fat and Decadent! Or the baby Prince, cute and loveable. 

 

Looking at Briarwood, I see one small problem I have with it. There are only three redcaps. In past expansions if there were small figures there were more. 6 unmounted goblins and kobolds in the Dungeon Dwellers, 5 deep (plus 5 bloodstone) gnomes in Darkreach, 4 ninja goblins in Daimyo , 5 brine goblins in Dark Depths, 5 mephits and 4 blood imps in Fan Favourite. In addition to those there generally was a figure that would work as leader of the encounter, whether that was a a mounted version or some oni.

Those Old Grenadier Sets were among the first sets I bought.

Awesome stuff.

 

Hoping for something like that.

I've got a few of those old gems!

 

Something along those lines would be pretty cool.

and sometimes you don't even realize how helpful a core set has been for this until years after you got it.  I can't count the number of times a mini from a core set that I didn't really care about during the KS has inspired something that made me happy I bought it years later. 

I completely agree.

And no barbarian queen. Who doesn't want a barbarian queen? Gets around the "but the impractical armor!!" issue because Conan the fella doesn't really wear much, so a barbarian queen can be as unconstrained as she wants to be.

While I love Bobby Jackson's work (& Bobby himself!!), this is kinda of Eh kinda figure. For a figure to try & bring in people this one doesn't really inspire. I see the Conq & King being added later on down the road for purchase, after the KS is over & we are waiting for fulfillment. I don't think this KS is gonna reach those backer numbers, maybe the Conq, but not the King.

 

I like the above idea of a fatter, older version of the King. The way the sculpts are, it looks like he a 3 stage character in a matter of weeks. :lol:

 

Bases, I can always use bases, even 2 years from now, I can uses bases. Speaking of bases, I'm waiting to see what I'll use my Base Boss 2 pledge on.

 

Chonk is a neat dragon & I'll probably get it. It is mind-blowing exciting? I'm not sure of that, still a nice addition to help jumpstart the KS again at least.

The Fey doth thrive in Threes and Eights
The Seelie and the Un-
For Two may clash and thus equates
The pair, now halved is One
Four Five and Six are a tedious pain
Seven's too safe a bet
But Redcaps Nine thee shall obtain
If you'll simply buy three sets...

Forgot the Chorus:
You should buy three sets (three sets!)
You ought to buy three sets (three sets!)
Briarwood looks so dang good 
You've got to buy three sets (three sets!)

It's better with the music I hear in my head...

Base Boss bases have been added to the Kickstarter page and have been unlocked.

cool idea. I actually like all 3 sculpts ... but 15,000?  thast asking a lot of the last 48 Hours

I mean, we currently have 6,700 with 17 days to go. So not quite half way done timewise, and we need 8,300 backers. That averages out to... oof, 489 people per day? Yikes.

 

Bones 5 had 18,587.

Bones 4 had 16,200.

It's doable. Just going to take a lot of people pulling the trigger that haven't been so far.

Like the idea of a three stage unlock.  In most cases Reaper will unlock if we're close so my assumption is we're going to get them all.

 

Dislike that we're not getting more 3-stage characters. Mind you I'm old and the Ral Partha 3-stage bits were great for the various multi-class combos that were standard in the 1st and 2nd ed days.

 

I hope we start seeing some more pieces like more dragons and whatever the 'encounters' are going to be.

I second this point of view. If the armor is impractical or inefficient, why bother. Just skip it all together!

 

Can somebody tell me what color dragon Chonky Boy (girl?) might be?
