It's tempting, but I don't paint and have a hard enough time getting my paper minis and Pathfinder Pawns to the table, let alone that much metal plastic.

Plus I'm about KS'ed out for the moment with OGRE 6, T5, the Ouya and TBZ.

Just backed both Planetary Annihilation and the Vampire bones collection, going to get *all* the dragons (that are not undead at least) and hyrda, now I'll just need to start an in-person all drake campaign when they get here.


I really wish I could get the 'There Be Dragons' set at least but I just can't quite do it, I chopped the $15 Demon set from my pledge. I am getting the Clockwork Dragon though...

Since they announced the option to swap out the metal Sophie KS mini to get $25 to put towards other things I think I may grab the Orcpocalypse, 'cause who doesn't need 20 more Orc minions?
I enjoy four things: Giant Robots, Giant Monsters, Zombies, and Steampunk. But, just because something contains one or a combination of those doesn't mean I will like it.

Mantic are making their own sci-fi fantasy football game, Dreadball. There are four teams at the moment, one for each of the Warpath races.

It goes without saying that it has already reached the funding goal, but Mantic appear to be a lot more coy about the stretch goals this time around.

Well, in their first Kickstarter they did not think that it was likely that they were going to hit $20,000, and all that they really needed was $5,000...

It was a lot of fun watching their ecstatic panic when it passed $20,000 the first day..  ;D Then the numbers just kept rushing by.

I think that it is safe to say that Mantic is quite happy with the results.

Last four hours for the Bones Kickstarter.

They had a bit of a dud - a novel in PDF format, but now have Familiars up.


If this makes it then there will be 240 minis with the Vampire pledge. :)

I ended up ordering one of them in metal after looking it up - the fellow accompanying her is perfect for a PC in my game:


I had somehow missed the fellow before.

She's nice too - that is why I went digging - but I could have waited for her. Him... he looks an awful lot like the guy playing the character. I think that I have my first Christmas present for the year picked out. :)

Another 100,000 or so and up comes C'thulhu. Booyah!

Yeah - that pretty much broke up tonight's game - we were watching the results like it was election night!

And then the Kickstarter site went down, followed by the Reaper site - with $24 remaining before Cthulhu rose....

When the site recovered the total was better than $10,000 over the needed amount, but it was close when the screen went dark.

In that one room of six people was over $1,500 worth of pledges, $300 of it mine. (Ow!)

I blame this guy -


And, kind of important - they will be putting up a site to Pledge even though the KS is over, in part because that crash prevented folks that were waiting until the last minute from making their pledges.

If you are signing up new and you don't select the Vampire or Undertaker Level you will have to pay more for options then what they were originally listed at, but they will be available to you.  If you did pledge and you didn't pledge Vampire or Undertaker or don't upgrade to one, the same applies.

More details to come later!

For me:
Vampire.
Fire Giant King & Queen
Ebonwrath
Frost Giant King & Queen
Mind Your 'Manors'
There Be Dragons
Demons
Deathsleet
Undead Giant
Clockwork Dragon
Spider Centaurs
Fire Giant Warriors
Deep Dwellers
Nethermaul
Hydra
Kaladrak Reborn
Cthulhu

Because of a misunderstanding with Jen I also have $3 pledged for Nekkid Sophie instead of regular - I will probably just add $15 and get the undead paint set instead of the Nekkid Sophie. (I thought that she wanted to buy my Sophie off of me, instead she went for a Vampire level of her own, and added $3 herself.)

I actually changed what I did since my last post:

Vampire Pledge
Fire Giant King & Queen
Frost Giant King & Queen
There Be Dragons
Mind Your Manors
Figure Case
Clockwork Dragon
Forces of Nature
Fire Giant Warriors
And I am trading out the Sophie mini for an Orcpocalypse

Depending on how long we are given to add stuff to our pledge and what options we have post KS I may also tack on the Undead Giant, the Pathfinder Red Dragon and maaaaybe Nethermaul and Kalarax Reborn. I'm not sure I would find much use out of the two skeletal dragons, though I am sure they will look awesome. I already have ideas forming for an Undead Giant and the Pathfinder Red Dragon could easily be a FC Drake, it's about the right size. My only disappointment is that we didn't see any Water/Ice or Air Elementals in that clear material, hopefully we'll see them at a later date.

 In March when all of this stuff is released I am also going to invest in some more of the smaller mini's such as the skeletons. In the mean time I should pick up a few of the ones that have already been released though, that minotaur looks spiffy.

Shoot, I forgot the spider centaurs. But I also need to find a place to fit Cthulhu. I may end up ditching the case.

Just so that you know - the Pledge Manager will allow you to add money from PayPal - and will be up for about thirty days. Two to four pay periods....

Because KS crashed under load they are opening it to folks that didn't pledge as well - from their KS update:

Reaper will have a post KS pledge manager website!
Update #57 Aug. 25, 2012 71 comments

Thanks to all of you that backed our project!  It was absolutely amazing!

Using our post Kickstarter Pledge Manager website (if you pledged you will get a link in you backer survey e-mail later) you can make additions and adjustments (you can't lower your pledge).

We will also post the link as an update to our Kickstarter.  It may be two weeks from now so keep checking.  We have to get and then assimilate the Kickstarter data.

You can sign up there. You can also use pay-pal too.

If you are signing up new and you don't select the Vampire or Undertaker Level you will have to pay more for options then what they were originally listed at, but they will be available to you.  If you did pledge and you didn't pledge Vampire or Undertaker or don't upgrade to one, the same applies.

More details to come later!

If this does not answer you question, please send another message to us in a day or two as we are going to sleep now!

So, a bit more time and a few more paychecks, but no new Bones being added to the pile. Sounds fair to me!

So, those of us who didn't have a chance to pledge yet... will have some option at the KS pledge levels / rewards?
I aim to misbehave.

And now for something a little more modern: the Fabled Environments ENTIRE MALL.

It's already made its goal, but the stretch goals look like fun. And as a Spycraft 3.0 kickoff convention special, how does Hostage Situation at the Mall grab you?

I just wonder how big this thing will be at 5' square scale.
