Hell On Earth Post Apoc Miniature Kickstarter
« on: October 24, 2012, 09:00:38 PM »
I just realized I had not seen a thread here about this particularly Post Apoc themed Miniatures Kickstarter.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1176616619/hell-on-earth-miniature-mega-release

Their pricing is a bit odd, but in general for $25 you get 4 "Core" miniatures. 

Then for each $6 you pledge above that you get your pick of those miniatures that get unlocked as goals are reached.

There is now an option to get 10 picks for about a $5 saving (you get the core 4 and 10 picks, normally $85, now for $80) that also gets you any bonus "freebies" like if they reach $15K you will get a 3-pack of wormlings.   

They got a lot of goals to reach to unlock all the various miniatures (my personal hope is it break $50K as thats where the reckoners are (mutant priests).

So if you are a fan of PA minis check them out.

(Note: I am just a backer and no way represent PEGInc or any of its properties).

Greens looks very promising.  Need to think about supporting this project.

Two of those initial 4 figures are Kickstarter exclusives, although I suspect there will be alternate versions in the released set.

I really want to back this as I'm a Deadlands fan, but I've backed a few already this year and my wife has called a stop. She'll let me if it's worth it though :)

My issue with this one is the initial buy ins don't really get you much (unless you want the books and haven't already pre-ordered them). Even the figure buy ins are a bit of an issue as everything in the kickstarter is based on them reaching their stretch goals. Currently I can buy a bundle of 10 extra figures, of which only 2 new ones are available....

There really isn't much of an incentive to join up early, which makes it harder to reach those stretch goals, which in turn makes it harder to get more interest. If they're running it like this where you buy your options, they should have had some of those options available from the start.
So many projects..... so little time.......

Yeah, all this..if it gets further along I'm sure I will jump in.
I am looking for the following Deadlands minis:  Shotgun Thug, Lost Soul, Cleaners, Railroad Workers & Feral Dead. If you have any of these minis, or if you are one, please send me a PM.

Since they didnt put a cap on the number of $80 10 (+4) figure levels, I am starting with 25 + 6/figure released, adjusting up as they rescue new ones,  and once they break 10 figures I will then switch over.  No need to have 10 of 2 poses.

Kicktraq has them hitting around $40K at their current pace.  I am crossing my fingers for $50K.

Both of which make my point perfectly  :D ;)

I still have hopes for it...

I do love the Deadlands setting...it's tempting to get some figures.

Well someone got the generous bug at this Kickstarter.
They dropped the stretch goals by 20%, so now they get unlocked every $4K instead of every $5K.  And since they just broke $15K the wormlings are out and they are just a smidge away from the next Scrapper.  So all in all making it easier to get in on this.

Sorry Mate, I've hit over-saturation with KS projects, especially 'zombie' or 'pa' offerings.

Still very tempting, but I've spent a LOT of money of crowd funded projects this year. Dunno if I can do any more... At least I have a few weeks to think about it.

That is something I am seeing a lot of.   Guess kickstarter is reaching saturation levels.

I guess they needed to update the images to show the new lower price levels because I see them there.

I didnt mean this as a slam to the project, I wish you guys success.  But my average investment in a KS project is WAY over $100.00, and my cup is empty :(

The figs look great and I hope you guys do very well with them!
