Woo! Finally!

I haven't backed since MB 1.0, so lemme know what sort of problems the company has been having, how many projects they have outstanding, etc. etc.

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/806316071/mythic-battles-pantheon-15/posts/2978447

Friends, it’s been a long time. Too long to be honest. The Beyond the Monolith failure, the Conan the Conqueror success, Covid, unfortunately everything Mythic Battles - Ragnarök moved much slower than we expected.
But now we are ready, ready to start revealing the next instalment in the Mythic Battles series.Mythic Battles: Ragnarök. . Totally standalone, playable in its own right or fully compatible with Mythic Battles: Pantheon OR test your mettle Pantheon to Pantheon, God to God.

Week by week as we march towards the kickstarter we'll show you insight after insight

We've shared some previous insights with you before the slow down, and here's our most recent insight, the first gameboard, Naglfar from the core box if you missed seeing its glory on Facebook,

But this forward movement with MB: Ragnarök, doesn’t sigh MB: Pantheons death warrant, quite the contrary.

Depending on the results of the upcoming online survey, uploaded next month, a reprint of part or the whole of the MB: Pantheon content will be offered as addons in the Pledge Manager, we chose the Pledge Manager so that any new backers wouldn’t be confused by the product selection during the Kickstarter.

The MB: Ragnarök Kickstarter itself WILL contain the MB: Pantheon core box and some amazing bundles.

We’ll talk about MB: Ragnarök and next campaign in the coming weeks, tonight, WE DINE IN HELL
.

Also, see the link for "MB: Pantheon 1.5 FAQ – Finished and ready to solve your ruling questions:"

Conan is on target as far as we know,

Batman Gotham City Chronicles 2 delivered ok to most, but since they don't do their own fulfilment there seems to have been a few that fell through the cracks between monolith and the fulfilment firm

however the rules were still not great (or possibly not well translated) so they're planning another rulebook update for Batman 3 so I imagine there rules for this will need a fair bit of interpretation

(not necessarily a deal breaker, but if you/your group isn't prepared to work around wonky translation and ambiguous rules something to consider)

Shipping on Conan was also painful even though I don't normally moan about that sort of thing (to the point I didn't get stuff I had intended to). My 32 Euro estimate ended up at 55 Euro, yes I was getting more stuff, and I expected to pay a bit more but the size of the increase, and the fact that adding any of the big box expansions would have made it significantly more hurt

now in part that's probably because Monolith was tied to use the companies they had they old stock warehoused with but sadly I expect it might well apply here too

Hmm, I'll see. Shipping for Conan was very expensive and I didn't really feel like I got much for my money.

I hear good things about MB though. I'll be watching to see how many sculpts repeat (Monolith tends to only do a single sculpt per troop type). I do appreciate that Monolith only books the absolute best sculptors, so at least the sculpts you do get are works of art.

Obviously it's subjective but I felt like Conan The Conqueror was a good deal. A lot of the figures are huge and at retail, looking at similar sized creatures, would run $40-$60 each MSRP. Add that to OG conan being my top used mini set for fantasy RPGS over the past few years and I know I'll get a lot out of the set.

I wouldn't expect MB:R to be a free flowing with minis as OG Conan or MB as those days are long gone on KSer in general but it will most likely have more for your money if that's the biggest concern for reasons below. We know Conan The Conqueror was more reigned in too due to budgetary reasons. Failure of the Beyond the Monolith KSer and Fred's partners walking away and wanting to cash out their shares of Batman which have been discussed to death. But one that really wasn't was Fred not sure there was really any interests in Conan due to retail failure so he didn't want to do a expansion with a lot of cash invested that he wasn't sure he could make back through shear sales numbers. Mythic Battle games have always had a strong demand post KSer and they're looking to do another reprint of MB (might be a partial, they haven't committed to everything yet) so that fear that it's a dead game isn't holding back Fred.

Several previews and updates recently

First form a post today
We've never been so close! We are aiming for a launch in the second half of this quarter and will be able to publish the exact date in the next two weeks.
We are still waiting for some information from our partner factories before we publish the survey from which we will gauge demand for what Mythic Battles: Pantheon products we would include in the upcoming Mythic Battles: Ragnarök campaign.
This survey will allow backers to indicate their choice of Mythic Battles: Pantheon products from the entire MB-P product range and not just those products that have already been reprinted. If there is sufficient demand, those products will be added to the range of available products in the Mythic Battles: Ragnarök Kickstarter campaign or Pledge manager.
The only MB-P product we will offer during the Mythic Battles Ragnarök Kickstarter campaign will be the Mythic Battles Pantheon 1.5 core box (and its Stretch Goals).
All other Mythic Battles Pantheon products we elect to add (including the MB-P1.5 core box) will be available in the Mythic Battles Ragnarök pledge manager.
It’s our attempt not to overwhelm or complicate choices for new players of the game.
The next few weeks will see a series of news on MBR, revealing to you before the launch all


also news on a webstore
It is time! By mid-year, once all Conan: the Conqueror pledges are delivered, we will be opening the online store we've been working on for some time. It will offer products from several ranges, in limited quantities, as well as new products. We're not planning to make it just a clearance or pre-order space but give it a life of its own. It is also part of a more comprehensive restructuring project for our pledge manager and our after-sales service, which will be overhauled this year. We point out in advance that there are no plans, with very specific exceptions, to make the products available on our store at a price lower than that which was theirs during our campaigns. We want our early supporters to be most rewarded. Likewise, pre-orders will not offer a lower price than campaigns.


Now for some previews (I've hidden the larger images that are just alternative views). I'm not sure how I feel about the giants so far. I didn't like their Yimir at all and I'm on the fence here. I guess they need to do something different then just traditional stuff but it's not working for me.

None of your image links show up for me Monkey Sloth. Maybe on my end? Are they showing up for other people?

That being said, I found the image on their Facebook page, and boy does Thor's hammer look stupid.

Shows for me too, and usually stuff doesn't while I'm at work (which is over and done with before people get cheeky with me).

Handle of the hammer seems too short or something. Or too big of head. Everything else looks good.

This will be one I'm less interested in the gods, more interested in the human sized models. Hel had some cool stuff- can they top those for Ragnarok?

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

They're direct linked the Facebook page. I checked in some incognito windows to make sure they'd show up if not logged in so it's odd you cannot see them but can access facebook.

The hammer is a very traditional style for Thor -- which I agree has never looked that good to me due to how squat it is but they do have lots of references for the basic design of the hammer from old art.

For MB: P I use the gods as statues as they're very static and work great for that in generic D&D settings and such. While I don't like the giants shown so far in MB:R thor will be an ice giant for me in other games.

I don't care how much that handle is based on peer-reviewed papers analysing period accurate representation of Norse folklore - it looks daft.

Rule of cool trumps everything.

If I get on board this KS, the handle is getting modded.

Thor himself would probably appreciate it as the hammer's handle is shorter then it's suppose to be due to Loki.

While making the boar Gullinbursti, a gadfly, often thought to be Loki himself, came and bit Brokkr on the hand. Brokkr was not disturbed though and kept blowing into the fire. While making the golden arm ring Draupnir the gadfly came again and bit Brokkr, this time in the neck but Brokkr kept on blowing. Finally, while making the hammer Mjölnir the gadfly bit Brokkr on the eye this time. This temporarily caused Brokkr to stop blowing. That brief stoppage of blowing into the fire caused Mjölnir's handle to become shorter than it should have been. Because of this, Thor had to wear the iron gauntlets Járngreipr to handle it.

March 23d is the KSer date



from some KSer comments:

"VAT is included for EU and UK, concerning postage, we are actually exploring different solutions for shipping" This is in response to a common about CMoN's shipping/VAT issues

Less expansions the MBP (We knew that already though)

No knew MPB stuff but they're open to the concept.
