@Gifted Vision & @ Tim ::
Unfortunately, with Reaper you were only given the options for add-on after they reached their goal, I am sure that we will see some really great add-ons & bundles much like Reaper had once their goal is achieved. Reaper also has a massive following, given the many many years they have been making minis. This following spurred conversations WHERE EVER gamers gathered, and all over the web.
Their campaign was a rehash of sculpts they already have made in resin, so featuring sculpts was easy for them to show. But they did have concept art to showcase the new minis to be made. Not to mention that given their years of manufacturing they probably own their own processing plant or get an insanely incredible deal manufacturing because of their aged seniority with their factory.
The Gifted Vision Campaign is VERY different than Reaper because of these things. We have been making miniatures for less than a year. As a new indie [url="http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dungeoncrawler/dungeon-crawler-minis-dcm-tidal-wave-redeux/comments#"]business to the industry, the companies hurdles to over come are much higher as the standards of miniatures very from one gamer to the next. Gifted Vision has a great desire to produce vinyl plastic miniatures.
Reaper was an incredible campaign, and a person would have had to have been insane to not have backed that project, but even Reaper has announced that they are facing many troubles that they had not anticipated with their campaign. And that they are producing the result of the campaign at a massive loss.
Why do I have my doubts as to the veracity of some of these claims?
*EDIT* I was going to pledge, but between a $15 shipping and handling fee on a $15 pledge, and that little bit of whining, I decided that a large pizza would serve me as a better allocation of funds.
