Which one is that?

Love me some Kaiju...

I see it - and it looks like we just missed it.

No idea if they’ll release it anyway in the PM via the ‘close enough’ rule.

If not, then it’s another case of The Highlord Jinx!

Reaper usually adds add-ons after the KS, so I'm sure the kaiju will be available. Possibly even the Chimera some backers wanted.

151 mini's plus dice in the Core Set.

Nice. The Not-godzilla is pretty cool.

Also noticed they added a Buglips Mini. Pretty awesome as he's a cool guy.

That fan favorite set ended up being quite the interesting assortment.

My kid want those Axolotls. I'd like to see what that mammoth centaur thing ends up like. It's goofy enough that it just might work. Perhaps as a dragon ogre stand in?

The not- Demogorgon was a nice bonus. Seems I'm going to end up with an awful lot of expansions this time around...

Same. I pretty much want all of them but the Chronoscope and possibly Daimyo which is just too random for me with useful stuff and random D&D oddities (dino & orc samurai) that don't have enough things in either bones or other lines to be useful at any level. So it might just be a pick up things in a general release like I did with the Stone age one from last KSer.

There are a few things I might get via pledge piggybacking, or “pledgybacking”, but the campaign in general feels scattershot, trying to appeal to everyone at the expense of value for the more focused customers. Each expansion or subset of the core has one or two things I want, but not enough appealing minis in any of them to justify the purchase.

We got some really cool stuff towards the end. I'm worried if they'll be able to sort out an EU hub after Brexit but I left my $120 wave 4 pledge stand anyway. If a no-customs shipping solution is confirmed before the PM closes I'll probably triple the pledge.

Yep, scattershot.

As I understand it, Reaper gives their artists a fair amount of license, but, of course, this means they risk creating what *they* want, vs. something more marketable. I also think they appeal more to painters than gamers, compared to other companies.

At the same time, after Bones I-IV, I guess you're gonna run out of "staple" monsters and run into repeats or resort to edge-cases. I dropped to $1 when they offered the zombies in the core. (Have plenty thanks to CMON.) Gorgon yes. Catoblepa, no.

Most of the add-ons were thematic, although some were on the miss side.

I saw a good amount of new backers, and they're still getting a good deal with the core -- even if all they fight are kobolds (and two dragons).

Personally, I'm looking for Gloomhaven proxies, so that may have colored things. Although that didn't prevent me from picking up some halflings mounted on armored chickens!

Well, some neat stuff cropped up at the very end. Does anyone know if there are better pictures around anywhere? Some of those sets are so small and dark it is hard to see what you're getting.

They should open a late pledge. Believe they have done that in the past with their other ksers.

I wussed out and dropped from a $120 pledge to a $1 pledge quite early on and never upped it. If we get a no-customs shipping solution I'm sitting at $120 of expansions before temptation kicks in.

The core set is incredible value but I just don't think I'll have a use for most of it. The dungeon dwellers and Greek ones are no brainers though.

Yeah I think unfortunately Core, while had some great bits, isn’t worth it enough for me.
$30(+$6) gets me the bits I Want/Need, then the rest I’d be paying $90(+$18) for some nice bits but not necessary (though is any of it..).

Then it’s two expansions, and possibly that Brinewind extras bit..

There is just so much in the core set I will never use, so dropped to $1 and will pick up a few items - notably the war mammoth.

I so do not need a bunch of kid heroes and cat people...

I only went with a $1 pledge to get access to the pledge manager. No point in giving them money now when the goods won't get delivered for over 2 years. But before the pledge mananger closes next year I will be adding on a bunch of dragons, warmachines and probably a couple of the scenic expansions.

It's a real shame this stuff is still so hard to get hold of in the UK outside of the kickstarters.

it's the quiet ones you have to look out for. Their the ones that change the world, the loud ones just take the credit for it.

They do allow late pledges, but it will be for a higher price. So much better to join on a pledge.

I have a pledge -- if any UK people want part but not all of the core set, feel free to DM me. I do not, for example, need the undead giant (I have one from Zombicide: Green Horde already). I'm still not 100% sure I want the core at all, though, so ideally you'd want a bit more than just the giant.

I backed for the Core Set and I might add on some of the dragons. I haven't painted much in the way of larger-sized models; biggest one I've done, I think, is the 15mm Leviathan Crusader.

I would agree on the Greek stuff, but I backed MBP so I'm rolling in Classical heroes, gods, and monsters.
