  1. They are based out of Utah and try to do most of their stuff in their facility I believe, but whether they are producing this specific model in-house would be beyond my knowledge.

    Frozen Ninja 3D - Fantasy/Sci-Fi minis and busts

    They were at ReaperCon with some 3D prints of their past work and a couple from this one I think. They looked pretty good.
  3. KickTraq might be helping, looks like CAV is on the hotlist! no idea what kind of traffic that generates, but it cant be a bad thing. Sure would be nice to get a Kickstarter frontpage or something though ! ;)
  4. Whoa! the kickstarter is trucking right long now! out of curiousity was there another marketing breakthrough today or are these all the people that have been waiting until the last minute finally jumping on board? i hate to look a gift horse in the mouth but im curious if anyone knows... especially as it applies to the next kickstarter.
  5. I have been telling this to a few of the people that are interested but not fully committed or those on a tight budget. Select at least the $5 pledge level to lock in your backer status and you can add more in the pledge manager. I explain that it wont help as much with unlocking stretch goals, but its better than nothing. I also have been telling them that if there's anything they know they can afford to add in then they can do the best of both worlds to help with stretch goals and get in the pledge manager!
  6. Over 46! Get the word out, this Terrain is awesome!
  7. OH! I got that from Ed.. I'm not good about checking my personal email ;)

    Basing your models in CAV

    I like this Idea! I may take the lazy route and glue some under my bases...
  9. Back up over 40k with 20+ new backers today! that's exciting, not sure if its payday for mech-fans or what, but I'm hoping the momentum continues!
  10. Im sure @CAVBOSS has already considered this, but a dropship Kickstarter sure would pair well with the removed/remaining aircraft as stretch goals.... and maybe terrain as well...
  11. Maybe they were Warlords... I think he killed me with PGBs not MACs, so that would check out... So Warlords and Warhammers then. *jaws theme plays* we're gonna need more Backers....
  12. Nope, no proxies, @jsalyers has spent a good amount of time sourcing old metal Templars for his force. but yes, the Blaster 1 kicked my tail.
  13. After getting stomped by a few of @jsalyers warhammers this weekend I am certainly hoping we reach that stretch goal so I can get some of my own. would have been funny to unlock the spartan at 300 backers and the warhammer at 40k ;) lol!

    Check with your FLGS, if not then there's never been a better time than now to start one. You and a few can go in on the Kickstarter together and get a core set or two and get starter! I think people have answered most of your questions now, but just incase anything got lost in the shuffle, I went through with a quick answer line-by-line. Does it use a hex grid, or rulers? Rulers, commonly I see tape measures and rulers for shorter distances where a tape measure would be unruly I don't see any infantry in this KS, or previous ones (just looked quickly though), how often do you use infantry in your games? What's their battlefield role? @CAVBOSS has said that the infantry will not be converted to plastic, they are small enough that its more cost effective to cast them in metal than it would be to machine the expensive moulds for plastic, that is why they are not in the Kickstarters, but they are available on the web store or reaper's store The vehicles also look super cool. How often do you see them on the battlefield, and do they have their own cards too (ie, become weaker as they take damage)? They are very awesome and a few players even base entire strategies around them (ahem:chieftains) they have their own cards and everything just like other units Related to that: does every figure on the board get a card, or just the big stompy robots? How are vehicles, aircraft, troops, etc. treated in the game? Every unit gets a card, many people only print a single card per unit type though (if you have 4 Dictators on the board you would just use the one card for all 4) What's the initiative deck for, in the starter set? randomizing turn order, makes for an interesting dynamic when you don't know who will go next until the card flips How many factions are there? I'm thinking of backing the $100 pledge, but really just want figures for two factions. It looks like the current KS base pledge is just for two factions (that's good IMO!) This kickstarter is only dealing with these two factions, so no worries there, but there are others out there. Terran, Rach, Adon, and Amirithil all have a pretty good selection available in plastic from previous kickstarters, the others have a few but older models can sometimes be found on ebay and such in the old metal (these are more expensive)

    Some of the grizzled vets could probably provide much better answers than I so I will let them. I'm sure they will be along shortly. But in the meantime, Welcome!! I will be sure and check back later tonight (when I'm not at work) in case nobody else responds. I'd hate to leave you hanging out there.
