Decados: At least this time they were honest about screwing the brick and mortar retailers who got them on the map in the first place and just cut us out of the loop altogether, instead of the anemic offering we were given before.


Its a sad fact that manufacturing businesses often can't make it just selling through brick and mortar stores anymore because so many retail outlets shuttered their doors in the last 6 years. However the whole industry will get a big shake up when the cheap 3D printers become available in Jan 2014.

How long do you think it will take for crowdsourced figurine design to completely saturate the market? A year? 6 months? If your brick and mortar store makes a substantial amount of income on figurines you might want to think about how you can stay ahead of that trend.

Also, not a tabletop/warhammer whatever the hell they're used for gamer but . I kind of want the mouslings and rats for chess pieces. I could paint the white squares yellow and make a cheese board!

I was thinking why I had never supported anything on Kickstarter...then I went to the site and it didn't take long to remind me.

It's like the worlds worst flea market.

I understand nothing in that link and little to nothing in this thread.

Am I too old or too young to get what's happening?

mrlewish: If the initial kickstarter was so successful why do they need another?


My guess is that they haven't sold nearly as much since.  And since the first did so well, why not see if it will do well again?  So far it seems to have been a safe bet for them.  This is probably not the last one we'll ever see.

Benevolent Misanthrope: So, how does this work?  You pay $100, and you get the starter set... plus everything listed in the massive pic, as the total amount sold goes up?  Or do you have to keep buying each new "level" or "bonus"?


Based on the last one, your $100 set will grow as the total increases -- you also have the option of picking up certain pieces for an extra donation (like the $15 kraken).
