Re:Upcoming "Band of Gnomes" Kickstarter from ADW 4 Months ago  
I'm going to give them a chance and I really hate when people prematurely bash KS projects in the comments (see Myth), but when I saw someone else complain about the sculpt quality I had to comment. There's still a chance they could fulfill something good, but we're at DEFCON 3 and the WOPR isn't happy.

I jumped in at like 15 dollars because I thought it was a good deal for the birds... and the sample bird was outstanding and dynamic.... but I am starting the suspect that the remainder of the bird sculpts will be more like angry chickens... and that may be optimistic. =)

I threw $15 at them as well; I figure I've spent $15 on worse things.

I am in for 15 plus 10 bucks shipping. I hope I get some good sculpts. The ones on the original page were quite good overall, but the ones done after the Ks are not good at all.

They have started their new KS.

Same thing. A lot of enthusiasm, not many (hardly any) sculpts.

They promise to cancel the KS if not all of the sculpts are complete by the end, which I don't get. Why not just wait 3 weeks to launch (the length of the KS) and start then? Why the rush to make yourself look like you don't have your stuff together? I think it will hit the $2.5k funding goal, but I don't think I'll be in on it unless something is AMAZING or I get my IAM minis miraculously first.

It really feels like a bunch of teenagers trying to pull off being a big business. High hopes but lack of experience showing through.

This makes their fourth KS. Two cancelled, one yet to be fulfilled, and this new one.

Does not inspire confidence.

I really agree with the sculpts. So many KS do this, promising the moon and doing stuff on the fly. At least DF had the basics there, and several levels of stretch goals. Certainly, some was sculpted min-Ks, but these guys have not even the basic stuff done.

Plus I am not a sculptor, but doesn't it take longer than 3 weeks to do 20 or so sculpts? At lest to a good standard?

In addition, their first iceage KS is no closer to completion despite a lot of updates making it look like they are progressing. Guys, finish one first, then go for the next. SOrry, but I would have to get my Iceage figs before I pledged for anything else they did, and that is just impossible.

I'm not pledging for this one. I put $30 in for 3 mammoths, so I hope that i will be happy. Munchkin put $30 of his own money in for 3 sabertooths, so i at least HOPE that the sabortooths look okay. at least to a 7 year old. Here's to hoping he is much more forgiving than I am.

I fell for that mini mammoth sculpt bc it was really well done.

won't make that mistake again. I would rather buy from their shop at full price than gamble on them again before I see what quality I ACTUALLY get from them...

fingers crossed all around

When I first saw the sloth sculpts, I honestly thought it was sculpts of Alf. It wasn't until reading farther that I realize what it was...
