I appreciate the effort but the price point for basically random mini's is insane. Now if I could submit some of my old and much beloved characters I would totally pay.

What do you mean by "random"? You would have to specify which weaponry/accessory in each hand, the armor, the clothing, the pose, the sex, the race, the height, the muscular tone, the face, the helmet and more... no randomness here. You might think that the choice for each of these categories will be limited but I believe it has not been disclosed yet how many options there will be. I sure wish it would be.

Anyway, whether I jump in in this ks or not, I'm psyched at seeing how 3D printing will affect our hobby in the years to come.

I totally agree. I jumped in on the Personalized MIni campaign and this is sort of the same idea. I predict within a short time we will be able to do full customized minis. Yeah the price will be high, but this wouldn't be for the army of orcs. For your PC who will hopefully last 2-3 years in a campaign it is a small price to pay to have a totally unique miniature.

There is nothing worse than someone playing a character witha D&D mini that has seen a lot of table time before. I retire PC's. Which is to say the 6 minis that represented the PC's in the last few campaigns are not available for people to choose from for the current campaign (our whole group uses my minis). Sad but true but a little $2 piece of plastic can BECOME a character and it is hard to lookj at it and see the new character it is supposed to represent.

@kitenerd I agree. I think the nicest part about it will be that not only can you get a customized mini for yur PC, but another of him mounted, another of him in cooler gear for when he is higher level, etc etc.

Yeah, it's a bit spendy. They'll have to work on that if they're going to be competitive in the minis industry.

If only they could figure out how to build them in full custom color! :)

Did anyone else wind up getting in on this? I had to do it, the excitment was too tempting. I felt like it was something i just needed to support. I pledged $30 for the detailed plastic

Jumping in late here (3 days left) but I'm intrigued as well. I have some "long in the tooth" gamer friends that I've queried to see if they would want a crack at building their "avatar" at $23 a pop ($230 for 10). I'll also probably splurge and pay $75 for a mounted version of my character.

So, when is Game Tiles 2 - The Cavern Edition Kickstarter starting??? ;-)

I'm also working on convincing my groups to go in on a larger bundle. I'm shooting for the 6 minis for $145 though. If they agree I'll just up my pledge to $145. I'm very interested in the mount as well. What I would like is a custom mini, same mini mounted, and same mini in epic gear
