[Kickstarter] Warren of Vile Fungi by Mortal Arrow
« on: November 15, 2019, 03:45:30 AM »
I got sucked in by a KS up right now and thought I would shamelessly promote it here.  :D

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263884974/warren-of-vile-fungi



There are other shroom-folk/myconid Kickstarters I've passed by but this one drew me in. Three days left and there's been a lot of action recently, and it's reaching a 5k threshold and beyond lie a lot more cool fungi.
















In addition to the myconids there are many fungus monsters, and the latest to be unveiled is a giant demon mother.

I'm going to use these for 25mm D&D and what's cool about Myconids is that they have variable hit dice by size. I'm working on an encounter group and have 1HD ones covered by Ral Partha and am modding some Reaper bones ones for 2-3HD, but am in need of 4+. The Mortal Arrow ones should do nicely!

Here is my circle so far:

A link to said Kickstarter would be adequate, given the promotion  lol

Say what?  How long has that been running?  They sent me a handful of figs to paint for the KS page ages ago and then never heard back from him after I sent over the images.  Apparently he didn't like them much since all the KS stuff is unpainted, but cripes, you'd think he'd have at least let me know it was starting.  Pfui.

Well, the final crop of figs do look nice and I see he's hit funding easily, but I wish I'd known earlier.  Would've been signal boosting from word one, and every bit helps.

Huh, I wonder what happened!   ??? Your fungi look really nice and I'd be surprised if it was turning them down by means of silence!  You are kind to give a boost, as you say, despite what happened!

His communications on other things have always been kind of slow/erratic, I think MA is very much a side business for him.  Didn't really think much of it at first and then I frankly forgot about it myself.  Like I said, super surprised to see the KS already going.  Any idea when it actually started?  It was below 36 hours when I first looked.

Yeah, it started November 1. A good way to check for any KS is to look at its kicktraq page: https://www.kicktraq.com/projects/1263884974/warren-of-vile-fungi/.



Also, it's the final 10 hours and counting, all! At 6.4K and with some more support we could hit 7k and unlock a fungus toad, and ultimately I think 10k or more is in reach!





A free 5e monster manual for all the figs was also added for all backers.

Well, got the toadstool unlocked, at least.  Hopefully he revisits the theme in the future and we see some of the other locked stuff.  The fungus-covered treant sounded fun, but $16K was out of reach for such a short KS run and light publicity.  I didn't see this mentioned anywhere but here, and the groups I posted too on Facebook.

@Spooktalker - Thanks for posting, the final push was phenomenal. Pedro and I were definitely happy with the results. 97 Backers will keep us busy for the next 6 months.

@Hobby Service - Sorry about the radio silence. I do appreciate your last minute signal boost!! It's nice to see the painted versions of some of the early minis. Thanks!

FYI - I did send out a pre-KS email to all former MA customers, but I see your email was somehow missed -- maybe I shouldn't have done it by hand. :-( We're hoping to get to some additional fungal minis from Pedro (Sporous Treant is on the list), but no guarantee considering he has 8 already on his docket.
