Lord Cthulhu slipped in under the buzzer.  

$10 for a huge Cthulhu miniature?  Hmmmm....   I wonder if I want a $25 miniature of an out-sized chick on a motorcycle  :roll:  ...or....  Maybe I want to get the $10 Cthulhu instead.  What to do?  What to do?  :lol:

(I got a feeling that Sophie will be the most un-selected miniature in history.)

Congratulations, Reaper.

As far as I understand, you can de-select Sophie (naked or clothed...your choice) and use the $25 for one or more sets of actually useful miniatures.  What do you want...let's see...one Sophie or...say...four giants?

Now:   Go back and review that dwarven miniature kickstarter I was snarking about.....

Should You :

A)  Set things up so supporters have NO incentive to jump in and raise the total?

or

B)  Set things up so supporters have HUGE incentives to jump in and raise the total?


I realize the dwarven miniature guys were not Reaper and had only a tiny fraction of Reaper's power, but the object lesson should be clear for future Kickstarters.

I am dumping Sophie like a hot potato.  I'll go with something useful any day.  I was going to go with the case, but I'm taking the hydra and a dragon instead.   8)

Yep, no Sophie here either. After pricing the larger figs at the FLGS in Phoenix, all the extra money goes to figs.

I thought the OGRE KS had it going on, but Reaper did a very fine job, all the way to the bank :)

They got me for over $300, but I got the paints too.

March is a long way away, sigh.

Ouch indeed! Lol... But worth it, I'm sure.

I think I'm going to (with my $125) go for the Hydra and driders, that's $25 and swap out Sophie for either demons and something or the case. Seems a good sized case, but I might take a look over here first as well, then I can get more minis! :)

I love miniatures some times a bit over zealous with needing them rather then wanting them.

With figures in mind I have come across some lovely concepts and wanted to share...


Eastern Front Studios

http://www.easternfront-studios.net/


http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/135 ... s?ref=live

A highly detailed line of miniatures based on the weird and whimsical Low Life game by Andy Hopp (but usable with any system)

LOW LIFE RPG


COMING OUT SHORTLY - Dwarven Gladiators

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVKDDUni ... e=youtu.be


Eastern Front Studios is now the official miniature producer for Kobold Quarterly starting with their Midgard line of miniatures, more news to follow...

Marauders of the Frozen North -  Barbarian miniatures

Undead - Miniatures

http://www.koboldquarterly.com/KQForums ... php?t=2678 for the most recent news...

Interesting pictures and such, but I don't think I'll support this Kickstarter.  In particular, this question caught my attention.

Where's the stuff we haven't yet received from the last kickstarter you did?

If you missed out on the Reaper Kickstarter, it is apparently not too late to participate.   8O  

I received a Kickstarter e-mail which states:  

OK, this link is for newbies only!!!
If you missed the Kickstarter and want to get involved, go enter in the e-mail you would like us to contact when the post KS Reaper pledge manager goes live.  If you've already pledge, this is not for you!  This is NOT a link to the Reaper Pledge Manager!

Sheesh.  Apparently they are confident they'll be able to process all these orders on time.  Either that or they're just greedy.   :?

I got that too and am rather narked. I presume that 'newbies' won't be able to get the Options at the price those who bought into the actual KS did. That'd be bad ethics I think.

not to get too OT, but here's an interesting KS for those who like STTNG, pinball and emulation ...

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/106 ... generation

The licensing obviously isn't cheap, but I would've expected it to be higher than $60k.

I wonder if there is an established set of ethics for Kickstarter style projects.
