Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

The backer count is still trending upward, it may have picked up a little steam this morning.

Its a good sign that the number has gone up every time I look at it. The projects that didn't do well mostly flatlined, or even started going backwards like Ghost Rider.

This. I think it would look much better with darker colors and less like a children's game this way.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Just not seeing it worth it to move into the territory of personal sniping back and forth, which that thread was getting into. Lets avoid that over here, please.

I also love my family and friends.

That's the thing that I'm currently a bit unsure about, is if there even is a next product for HS even if this does succeed. If they had to go all-in or nothing with this set, what will be the case after? I know they've teased possibilities after the fact if it hits its goal, but that could just be talk to get this initial batch out and get the money. Nothing is inherently promised after of course.

So when I think of biting the bullet, ordering/backing(and later selling), for the greater good of potentially getting stuff I actually want down the line, that later down the line may very well not be in the cards. Especially if its based on demand, and if this thing just barely scratches and claws its way across the finish line, meeting the bare minimum of support from many backers who likely purchased several, is that considered "demand"?

I have to assume there will be sufficient demand for the sets that sell in multiples. Whales (like me) love that stuff. Commons and terrain. Lots of it.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

I think at the very least they would sell a retail version of the master set and a big fig wave of the stretch goals if we donít meet them. All speculative of course.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

Agreed. There's talk of upfront tooling costs in order to make the terrain. Once they've invested the money to make that tooling, there would have to be a really good reason not to use it again, whether that's the terrain or miniatures. The costs of producing new product would be much cheaper. How they market to and find new players beyond the existing fan base is another puzzle to solve.

I could see a Ruin set quickly sitting beside the main set in stores. After proving a one and done (I know a lot of us buy more than 1 of the unique figures) assuming a successful campaign it would be a fantastic seller IMHO.
They already have the ruins set up and with minimal terrain and 2 squads of attackers and repulsors that wouldn't be such a huge investment in tooling or design costs.

Just when you thought it was all right, someone made it alright.

Good trades with - Porkins / xraine69 / mac122 (x2) / frylock / Ztimster (x2) and probably others I forgotten to mention...sorry.

Re: Age of Annihilation - Backer Trend and Discussion

We just hit 30% Its still not moving at light speed or anything, but the rate/number of backers seems to have increased today. Did anything change besides adding the terrain contents to the bottom of the campaign page?
