Beautiful work, but I think pieces from the expansions would be more attractive stretch goals than the alternate stuff you currently have. I suppose people who are so much into the game to buy expensive custom pieces probably have expansions and would like to have full sets.

I'd strongly agree with this. If you really like Catan then chances are you play with at least one expansion meaning that these base set only custom piece aren't that appealing to a significant number of your core market.

They look really nice, but for the cost I would rather get another board game.

You two are right, Like a catan fan player I have all the expansions and they add soo much to the game.
I want to do all the components, but my first idea is make the basic game first and after do a pack with all the expansions...and I will do it because I want custom ships, walls and metropolies for me.
Your right, and I must think about it, but now its too late to make those changes , Behing that there are months of hard work and I want to respect the times of the proyect.
All I can say is that in the future I will do it and the persons that now arent secure to support the proyect will have their change to adquire the expansions pieces and the basic game pieces too

Cool pieces. You should also try to expand to make minis for other very popular games, you could probably do well.

You should also post here:

You've easily met your goal and still have many days to go! Good for you for your entreperneural spirit and doing something to help others increase their enjoyment.
If you wish to continue to make other miniatures in the future--for other games or expansions, and if you wish to continue to use crowdfunding to do so, I would recommend you use Kickstarter next time. Nothing wrong with Indigogo, but for boardgames, Kickstarter is much more popular and has a wider gaming audience. You would probably get much more revenue through Kickstarter than Indigogo. But either way, keep up the good work. These look great.

Thanks Wesley!
I hope we can reach the $8000 to make the most complete project with all the stretch goals. Now we are near 2000.
I know Kickstarter is a better choice, but Im Spanish and thats the best web where I can put my project, I hope Kickstarter opens their borderline soon!

Hi all!

I'm new here on boardgamegeek, but I stumbled across this post and thought it pertained to something I've been working on. I wanted to provide an alternative means of custom pieces I've been working on for the past few months now. Take a look at the catan pieces I've created using 3D printing and let me know what you think!

Also, I'm wide open to other suggestions for 3D printing and board gaming!

David

I had forgotten about this. Have backers already received their rewards? I was on the fence about backing and missed the deadline.
