Ankh is Q1 of 2020 I last heard.

The turtles are totally proxiable too if you can't get the official ones.

I know there's some sculptors who've made some straight from the comic versions, Greebo did a bunch of feudal Japanese turtles that I've been meaning to get for some time as well as a bunch of peripheral characters as kind of a side thing for their samurat team.

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

You can also get the heroclix versions cheap and just repaint them.

Nice. Both look quite good. Anyone who complains about either one of them deserves to be smacked with a (full) reboot box.

Well, people are screaming about President 45 in the comments. "I'm never using this!" "Should have been an Abomination!" "I'm melting the mini down". TDS on full display (it's a board game kids - get over it!).

I think it's fun. I still would have preferred an Obamination because the word-play is just funny, but what's there is quite cool.

The important thing is that people won't refuse to buy the game. Presidents as zombies could be misinterpreted as a political statement. Presidents as survivors doesn't carry that weight. Though I agree that Obamination would have been a clever play on Obamanation.

I'm not bothered by Presidents. I wouldn't mind hero and zombie versions. Also, Andrew Jackson apparently too OP for the game.

I am, however, bothered by the fact that CMON has a habit of making a game, supporting it briefly, and then making a variant or another game and completely abandoning support. I just bought Invader and the expansions. Let me guess- I won't see a damned thing for them after this, right? Because that's what Black Plague felt like it did to the original, and what Invader did to Black Plague.

So is Ankh pushed back even farther because of another zombicide? Not that I don't mind I'm just trying to figure out what their schedule is as it really seams to have changed a lot from Gencon.

Riiiight. I bet they don't, either.

Principles tend to be easier spoken, when toys are on the line.

I think it's the same guy, Micah, posting in at least three different places.

Several backers did say they didn't want politicians in their game, but at $3.4M, nobody cares. (I would have stayed in if Teddy Roosevelt with his bear cub and FDR in his deathchair showed up). $3.4M is actually on the low side for a Z game, about the same amount as Invader.

I didn't back because I wanted more walkers per sculpt (like previous KS), didn't recognize many of the pop-culture Survivors (but you need more Survivors since Zombivores have been dropped), and didn't like the urban Abomination sculpts.

Not sure why NotLD is KS before Ankh (or why it was KS at all), but CMON will get my money somehow, sooner or later.

None of the people who threatened to pull out over the 45 did not actually pull out. You can see it in the KS comments when someone pulls out. All of his comments changes into a message that the Backer has pulled out...

I don't really need any of the presidents as a playing piece, but I'm glad we got 6 of them as now you can play a full squad of presidents if you want.

I have the results of the last chamber: You are a horrible person.

This will not happen if they ask refund after the project is funded, the kickstarter system is not the best out there and will keep such backers as active despite getting a refund.

I find odd such reaction though.

Why go through the refund process when you can just cancel your pledge before the KS ends and be done with it?
Cancelling your pledge also tells people you were serious. Asking for refund won't let your "protest" show.

Anyway, most negative reactoners just said that they will throw 45 into trash or burn it. So, I guess they Still want to keep their pledge and are opposed just the one toy soldier in the box.

CMON being careful? Or maybe that was the joke?

Well, anyway, I'm glad that CMON waited till the very end before revealing the pair. That Limited the amount of bickering to the final hours.
It would have been droll to wade through the comment section for days if they were revealed earlier.

CMON's policy is that, after 14 days, they will only refund 90% of the pledge. And I'm sure CMON makes excess product for replacements and freebies around the office, anyway. Seems a bit of the nose to cut off for one's face, imo.

I dunno...

Probably the funniest thing I've seen poking fun at President Trump was an hilarious video (in English) made by a Dutch group. It's probably a coincidence, but...

Just got my turtles expansion. Pretty cool!

It comes with specific equipment cards and the player cards for V1 and V2. Going to try and play a game with them this weekend.

Box cover:

Spoiler:


"CMON have already previously teamed up with Living Dead Media to produce a board game based on the hit Netflix series Narcos. That game is due to arrive in stores on November 23rd, so Romero fans will be able to get an early idea of the quality of this collaboration.

CMON have again reported losses for the year ending in September, but no where near the $4.1 million losses they had last year at this time. The company stated in its 3rd Quarter financials a loss of about $0.5 million for the period.

CMON might have been profitable if it wasn’t for the $1.2 million cost and fees associated to moving to the Hong Kong Main Exchange. Its application was approved earlier this month. The company will debut on the new exchange tomorrow. The company sees the new listing as a positive for company and shareholders.

Despite the losses, revenue increased to $18.9 million, up from $11.8 million in 2018. This was more in line with 2017 revenue of $17.5 million.

The company attributed the increase in revenue to wholesale orders, as it continues to see a decline in Kickstarter revenue. Kickstarter revenue declined from $3.3 million last year to just $2 million in the period, while wholesale revenue increased 121% from $7.6 million in 2018 to $16.8 million this year.

Gross profit was up, but the company attributes that to the increased revenue. The company has not issued dividend this year


https://tabletopwire.com/cmon-reports-smaller-losses-as-wholesale-revenues-more-than-double/

so no longer a mainly KS company

Interesting, especially as they’ve certainly alienated a large-ish portion of their non-Kickstarter customer base...
