I really want to go all in on this {and may once the pledge manager is up), but for now I'm in for just the updated rules, and unit cards.

So the difference between the questing knight and the relic knight pledge appears to be the void break expansion rulebook, does anyone know what is in the book?  More than anything I just think the models look really cool so I'm not sure if I would need the book.

I think the void break book is all the characters that weren't in first edition, but they haven't been very clear on that.

The Void Break book will primarily contain more fluff.  The story lines that were started in the main book (Black Diamond attack on Doctrine, Malaneach(sp?) invasion, etc), as well as blurbs about the new characters and units.  There may also be a hobby section, etc.  Although it will contain rules for models not found in the 2.0 rulebook, you'll have cards for those models so you don't necessarily need the book.  The only exception might be for new unit types or keywords, like Avatar.

 

If you only care about models: get questing knight

If you like fluff: get relic knight

If you're a gamer: either is probably fine

Screw it, I'm glad to see Sodapop Miniatures putting out an actual miniatures game as opposed to yet another board game with miniatures.  Relic Knights has never been my favorite as a gaming line (a bit too "bunch of random stuff" to feel like a coherent game), but who needs a reason to paint minis.

 

I don't think I'll go all in though, probably just Enforcers squad, Diamond Corps squad, and a few other items.

So, I am out (at least for now). I went through all my Relic knights 1st edition stuff. I got Noh, Circi speed circuit and Black Diamond, as well as some Void and Prism stuff. I actually got 2X Black Diamond and 3X Noh stuff... All great stuff. But.... I have not touched any of it since assembling when I first got it... So I really cant justify getting any more. I may look for some of the core box minis (Bang Bang and the Starburst guys...) and may cave again if the unlocks get better or are more aligned with my tastes... but for now... No, no for now.

the question for me is "can I justify making this a triple marie-claude kickstarter?"

To be fair, I don't think it is often reasonable to go "all in" on any tabletop minis game.  Prices get unreasonable much faster than with a non-Kingdom Death board game.

 

 

I don't know if this was mentioned before- but the Upgrade deck is being very inclusive- they're going to have the Penny Arcade characters and the Kingdom Death crossovers as well as all the promo RK minis (I think this means that we'll have rules for the Candy with the huge cannon.  The pinata list gets larger).

      About this project
      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers range of metal miniatures.
      Why are we making them?
      Because we want them! And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. Some will want to use them for wargaming or roleplaying. That's what we do with ours - and there's a link below to a free .pdf copy of the Burrows & Badgers Skirmish Game rules for you to download, if you feel like trying it out.
      Other people love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 13 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the moulds made, and get the casting process started.
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.
      And if you are interested in doing some anthro skirmish gaming, here's the link to the Burrows & Badgers website, where you can download .pdf files of the rules, warband rosters, FAQs and more:
       
      The Pledges
      Below you'll see pictures of the different Pledge levels available. Each picture shows you what's included in the Pledge, then below them you can see close-up pictures of the individual miniatures, which also include the prices if you want to add extra miniatures to any Pledge. Shipping costs vary depending on where you are; there's a graphic at the bottom of this page that lists all the shipping costs. All Pledges are set for an estimated delivery of December 2017, but we're hoping to deliver sooner than that.
           
       
       
      Pictures of the miniature sculpts
      Below you can see pictures of each of the miniatures, and there's a scale image at the bottom right of each picture to show the height of the model in millimetres. There's also a price at the bottom of each picture, for the Pick'n'Mix pledge, or to add extra models to any pledge.

      And now, for something completely different.
       
      Yes, yes. I know. Not miniatures. But! Shiny! Art! With.. with .. with stuff. *Sage nod*
      The book part usually gets shipped with efficiency; medals and patches and things seem to depend on the efficiency of the crafter making them, but communication is good and things generally show up. I haven't grabbed hardbacks; I've been happy with the soft covers.

      Seet update #1 for details.
      Extraordinarily versatile, the Tablebreaker has as many uses as you can imagine:
      Express your individuality at work or home!
      Use it as a gorgeous, eye-catching desk display!
      Spruce up your game room with a colorful, themed accent piece!
      Incorporate your passion into your living space with a sleek bookend or mantle decor!
      With options for both Standard and Countdown number orientation, the Tablebreaker is the perfect life-counter that all your friends are sure to envy!
       
      The Tablebreaker was designed from the ground up with 3D modeling software; this allows us to ensure the greatest manufacturability and quality control. The Tablebreaker is then precision machined on a multi-axis CNC mill using a solid billet of 6063 architectural aluminum. After machining, the dice are color anodized to MIL-A-8625 specification. Finally, each die is etched using a CO2 laser. This process selectively removes the anodization and exposes the aluminum underneath to reveal the numbers on each face.
      Why Architectural Aluminium (6063)?
      Aluminum has a superb strength to weight ratio, making it the ideal material for a beautiful, yet durable display piece. Architectural Aluminum (6063) facilitates the most vibrant anodize colors. It’s always been our goal to bring you beautiful gaming accessories with as little risk as possible. Before launching this Kickstarter, we invested a lot of time, money and effort to make sure it was possible to bring our vision to life with a quality that we're proud of.  
      During our testing, we’ve found that in order to maintain a flawless finish, a small, shallow hole needed to be made in the otherwise solid block of aluminum to allow the die to be hung during the anodization process. We worked tirelessly to incorporate this into the overall design for a beautiful and complete finish. We solved the design change by adding a second hole, and incorporating them into distinguishing markers for the 6 and the 9. Our final product will feature two small, flush, stainless steel accent screws to complete this modern look.
