Conan Monolith Kickstarter Arived!!!

Hi everyone,

I have interrupted my Viking project posts to show off many newly arrived Conan Kickstarter.

I have been waiting for this for around a year and a half I think.  Overall I think it was worth the wait. I bought into the Barbarian Pledge, which at 90 dollars is super bargain with all the unlock stretch goals.

The firsts pictures shows just how big the parcel is. The box was slightly damaged, but the contents were OK.  I have included a Space Marine for scale purposes.


As you can see below, along with the game box, I got another box full of stretch goals, besides all the add-ons I bought.



The contents of the game box for the standard game (Barbarian Pledge) is packed with stuff.  The quality is high and the miniatures are great, but not all the miniatures are as defined as their sculpts and renders.  This is especially obvious with the dainty female models.

The other box contains mostly miniatures with the same quality and slight definition problems. It also has extra boards, cards and scenarios from the unlocked stretch goals.  Personally, I wished all the stretch goals were just miniatures!


My favourite figure though is the big sea monster!  This piece is a true gem and is screaming out DIORAMA!
I am dying to start painting some of this stuff, but I have to refrain and soldier on with the Vikings and my Merkava diorama.

So overall I am super happy with it all, but I am slightly disappointed with the lack of definition with some of the models.  I will have to compensate with the painting I guess.

That is all for today.  See you in 7, until then farewell and good health.

  1. Hi Anthony it looks interesting and it's worth it for sure,what I hate most when you pledge on on kickstarter is you have to wait a long time ( I am still waiting for my reaper miniatures stuff to arrive Been a year all ready) any way it's the worthiness of the deal that compensate the waiting

    1. That is true, but you have to think of it in a different perspective. Say to yourself, 'Is this a project I would like to see happen and succeed?' If the answer is 'yes' then pledge and help make it happen and enjoy the progress as the plan comes together - the rewards are secondary. This is the true spirit of Kickstarter - helping others fulfil a dream you would like to share. This is my philosophy and how I cope with the waiting - looking at the big picture!

      P.S. It does not always work :)

    1. Thanks. I try to post once a week over the weekend. I have been very consistent, but it does take an effort. It is the only way I have to keep in touch with the community.

  3. Yes I agree with you about the projects being done thanks to the community help,projects that I would do if I had the time and money but still the waiting is a bit to long once I pledge on a project it took only 6 months that reasonable then a year or more
