CAV II KICKSTARTER UPDATE 7 JULY 2017

 

Greetings all!

This is the OFFICIAL announcement that as of July 31st, 2017 the CAV II Kickstarter Pledge Manager will be closing so we can get final numbers and start planning for final fulfillment.

This means you need to finalize your selections for the amount you pledged and/or add any final models you may want and lock in your pledge.

If you do not lock in your pledge by this date you may miss the initial shipping of product. Don't be the guy or gal who says they never realized this step was required or didn't see this update.

If you need any help or have questions email help@reapermini.com and make sure to include your name, your email address used on your Kickstarter and/or pledge manager accounts, backer number, and a phone number just in case. We will get back with you as soon as possible.

For final fulfillment we will process and ship everyone's order in the same batch so I doubt you will see any noticeable delay.

Happy Groundhog Day! While it looks like winter is not quite over yet, it's certainly "heating" up here at CAV HQ!

We have received our shipping notice from our manufacturer at last! Next week they will be delivering to the port in Hong Kong for shipment through Los Angles to our receiving area in Dallas.

Our container will be traveling aboard the APL SENTOSA (you can track the ship at: https://www.vesselfinder.com/vessels/APL-SENTOSA-IMO-9632040-MMSI-563251000 ) and is expected to be loaded and leaving port on 14-FEB with an estimated delivery date in Dallas of 08-MAR. This is of course dependent on weather, customs, etc.

Provided these dates stay on target, we should be ready to start fulfillment in the later half of March. I had hoped they would get it to us by end of Feb so we could fulfill before we start hitting convention season but at least we are getting to the end.

We will be attending the GAMA Retail show March 12-16 in Reno, NV and AdeptiCon March 22-25 in Chicago, IL and will have production copies of all the figures for display so if you are at either show, make sure to stop by and say hi!

So there you have it. I hope you are as excited as I am to finally be getting these figures in hand very soon!

Guessing that after the Kickstarters ship, we will see them trickle to retail over time?  Will there be packs of minis at retail as well? ^_^

Good to hear that its on its way soon, now which army to start after I finish the UTF?? Possibly do the small Rach force I have from the 1st KS or start the Ritterlich in preparation for the reinforcements coming ::D:

 

Now how many more Cav's are there left to Boneify? Any news on a possible KS III once shipping has started?

Templar and Malvernis have the least bones I believe, then several holes elsewhere.  Lots of gunships and vehicles.  Definitely enough left for another kickstarter if the interest is there.  Would love to see the Adon crawlers return, for example a Recluse model is impossible to find and it's the only Adon ECM unit.

Thanks Jeneki just downloaded the full list and I can see what you mean, my gaming buddy (well arch nemesis) has some of those crawlers I can remember put a few of them together a while a go for him :poke: he's not painted any yet of course....

 

Lets hope theres another KS if CavBoss can stand the stress ::D: hopefully the Convention season might help get a gauge to whether it will be welcomed or not but tanks and aircraft can easily be picked up by other gamers to be used in other sci-fi games my aircraft will make an appearance as 6mm dropships or heavy bombers for my games.

As soon as we have fulfillment done we will send them out to retail. Be ready to grab them as we have a lot of retail orders on hold waiting on just these!

 

We are working on a third KS centered around Malvernis and the Templars. I would expect it around August 2018. We are putting together some extra goodies for this one plus we are already sending models over so they will already be prepped ready to go as soon as we close the KS. If we get it going good, we will work on some of the other factions that have models missing.

 

Alas the crawlers wont be coming in plastic but we are working on some new model types for all the factions to fill in gaps and will have an announcement for those in April.

 

Also we will be doing variants on existing models that should help as well. The Adon Javelin will be getting an ECM variant very soon.

I wouldn't mind a couple of minis from other factions mixed in, if it plugs holes in the role-roster. I'm not sure I'll get as many as last time, but I'll get the basic and what looks cool.

      About this project
       
       
      A Song of Ice & Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game is a competitive miniatures game for two or more players. Each player controls one of the Great Houses of Westeros, commanding battlefield units, recruiting legendary Heroes, and manipulating the political stage, in the attempt to claim the greatest prize of all: The Iron Throne. Featuring House Stark and House Lannister, the Starter Set comes with over one hundred amazing, preassembled miniatures that are ready to play out of the box! All-new sculpts are based off original art created for the game by our crew under the direct supervision of George R.R. Martin and Dark Sword Miniatures, to ensure that the game delivers what fans have been envisioning for years.
      The Stark vs Lannister Starter Set is a perfect introduction to a new miniatures game. With accessible and streamlined gameplay designed by Eric M. Lang and Michael Shinall, A Song of Ice and Fire: Tabletop Miniatures Game features 5 different Game Modes, Army Building and Customization options, and choices of Commanders and Attachments. This Set packs a lot of gameplay for 2 players!

      The loyal followers of the Direwolf Banner rally to defend the North! Miniatures come unpainted. Just before starting a game, players must build their armies, based on an agreed upon amount of points. Using these points, players forge the core of their army with powerful  Combat Units, such as the Stark Sworn Swords or Lannister Guards into their army. Each of these units has its own strengths and weaknesses.

      Attachments
      A player can also augment these units with powerful Attachments, which range from generic additions, like the Lannister Guard Captain, to legendary figures such as Ser Gregor Clegane: The Mountain.

      This Kickstarter campaign is a collaboration between legendary game designer Jennell Jaquays and sculptor Darcy Perry, following the appearance of ducks in the previous Star Hat Miniatures Kickstarter: Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom III. 
      This is also an opportunity for YOU to contribute! With the Legendary Hero pledge, YOU can collaborate with us to bring new characters to the Quack Keep module and gaming table.
      The Module  
      This Kickstarter will provide funds for Quack Keep - inspired by classic game adventure modules of the past but written to be more approachable for a new generation of role-players and workable with a wide range of game rules thanks to the 5th Wall Generic Rank System. It even comes with a fold-out GM screen as a cover!
       
      The title is a nod to Quag Keep, the first novel based on a roleplaying game, published by Andre Norton in 1978 - around the same time that Jennell Jaquays began producing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Runequest modules for Judges Guild. The Caverns of Thracia and Dark Tower are both best-selling examples of her early work, both still in print after almost 40 years.  
      The later inspired Legendary Duck Tower and other Tales, which included a ducky-pastiche of her original Dark Tower cover. It was due to this and her work for Chaosium that Jennell Jaquays "was pretty much labeled as that designer and artist who did the ducks."

      The Grey Moulter.  Join us for an adventure with Ducks Lost in the Dungeons of Doom IV: Quack Keep!
      Legendary Duck! YOU be the HERO! Stretch Goals
      There is a Stretch Goal unleashed for every 1k funding goal reached and each one is a game changer: a new Duck will appear! Either a new Duck Hero or Legendary Duck will be made available for you to choose as part of your pledge.
      1k Stretch Goal Unleashed: Oduck!  
      2k Stretch Goal Unleashed: The Quack Knight!  
       
       
      Glen Fidduck is almost a must-have for me ;)

      About this project
      Samples of painted resins supplied by Studio Giraldez. Resin masterclass models supplied unpainted Strap in and blast off! The Starfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a bold science-fantasy explorer, investigating the mysteries of a weird and magical universe as part of a starship crew. Will you delve for lost artifacts in the ruins of alien temples? Don rune-enhanced armor and a laser rifle to battle undead empires in fleets of bone ships, or defend colonists from a swarm of ravenous monsters? Maybe you'll hack into the mainframe of a god-run corporation, or search the stars for clues to the secret history of the universe or find brand new planets to explore. Whether you're making first contact with new cultures on uncharted worlds or fighting to survive in the neon-lit back alleys of Absalom Station, you and your team will need all your wits, combat skill, and magic to make it through. But most of all, you'll need each other.
      ADVENTURE: The Starfinder Adventure Pledge level is a great entry point for the start of your collection of Masterclass figures. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 6 Hero Slots and 4 Encounter Pack Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      CAMPAIGN: The Starfinder Campaign Pledge level is the perfect pledge for the miniature enthusiast. This pledge includes 8 Kickstarter exclusives, including Candy cosplaying as Navasi and Cola cosplaying as Quig, along with heroes from the Pathfinder RPG Legacy Races. Also included is a gang of Space Goblin Zaperators. Customize your pledge with the added 12 Hero Slots, 6 Encounter Pack Slots, 2 Fleet Pack Slots, and 4 Creature Slots. Also all unlocked Freebies!
      Stretch Goals are items that unlock as the campaign reaches new heights. More options for heroes, encounter packs, creatures, and fleets will be revealed over time. There are three types of goals: Freebies, Optionals, and Social Media Stretch Goals.
      Freebies will be added to the Adventure Pledge and Campaign Pledge as soon as they unlock. Optionals will provide additional options to use on those Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet Slots. Social Media unlocks depend on the number of shares the following post receives on Paizo and Ninja Division’s Facebook pages.
      How the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Slot System Works
      To offer the most customizable pledge rewards possible we have developed the Kickstarter Slot System. There are 4 kinds of Slots: Hero, Encounter Pack, Creature, and Fleet. The Adventure and Campaign pledges come not only with specific models but several types of Slots to customize the pledge. Every item option has a Slot type and cost. Additional Slots beyond those in the Adventure and Campaign Pledge can be purchased for the cost listed in the Additional Slots section. As the campaign progresses and more stretch goals are unlocked the type of Slot and cost of each unlocked model will be listed in the appropriate section.
      Freebie Stretch goals add one free model or upgrade to the pledge. Additional models of that unlocked Freebie may be purchased as listed in the appropriate section.
      HEROES: Each Hero represents an individual pulled from the varied Starfinder races, character classes, and themes. These heroes double as playable characters and non-player characters, providing numerous options for players and gamemasters alike!
      ENCOUNTER PACK: Encounter Packs include a mix of creatures and hero-like characters that the heroes may encounter in their adventures. Each pack is designed to supply figures for a standard encounter. More ambitious adventurers may encounter larger groups so it never hurts to get multiples of each encounter pack!
