Still nothing here in Oz.

 

Bit annoying that we don’t get the plastic inserts like the retail box. Do the Kickstarter boxes have more items in them than the retail versions?

Yes we got quite a bit more irc

I can answer that, cause it's the reason I dropped out of the kickstarter.

 

Mantic was never clear on the hardness of the plastic being used. They kept on saying it would be the same as the minis found in their Walking Dead game.

Mantic made the exact same statement regarding The Star Saga plastic.

 

The problem with that statement is The Walking Dead terrain, the vehicles, batticades, and supply tokens, are made of a hard non bendy plastic. Similar to that of the Bones container or Wyrmgears wings.

The minis of the Walking Dead Characters are made of a slightly softer plastic, still firmer than Bones though.

 

The Star Saga character minis are made of a similar plastic as the Walking Dead characters.

Howevet The Star Saga terrain is a much softer bendy plastic that is nowhere near the hardness of the Walking Dead terrain.

 

Fear of not knowing what I'd be getting is what made me back out of this campaign.

 

 

Thanks, Pretty much this ^^, il also make it clear i wasnt expecting resin or hard plastic like GW but the same grade PVC that was used on TWD terrain and the actual sculpts are good and i have no probs with them just the material used, i did go to the beginning of the KS comments but went to another tab(FB)and when i come back it refreshed and went back to the top :( il try again tonight.

Neither did I, thanks for that.

Yep - and add in the library ladders - I have plans.... (Mostly involving a wizard/sorcerer type casting spells as his ladder goes 'Wheee!' - Animate Object + Too Many Disney Cartoons = Fun For The Whole Family.... ::D: )

I know the feeling!  It was a big relief to get my email last night.  Good luck!

The primer and liner seem to give similar results. The paint only is not enough...unfortunately. 

Ashen Brown coated well and stuck well - maybe because it was an HD color? (One of the models does, indeed, look like crap... and can go either behind the horse or into the wheelbarrow - I have plans for the kids game.... ::P: )

 

The Auld Grump - I should have bought another Town crate....

The Woodstain Brown coated and stuck just fine, but rubbed off easily.

No problem with the Ashen Brown coming off - but I think that I may be sending for some Army Painter leather brown primer... I'm gonna need a lot of brown....

 

The Auld Grump - still kind of amazed that Army Painter got the license for 'official' D&D paints....

I pulled back from this for the same reason. I just wasn't sure what the final material would be like. I bought some of their retail Dungeon Saga sets a few years back and like those quite a bit. The plastic is quite firm. For this project, trying to get a clear answer from Mantic during the kickstarter actually left me more unsure about what the final material would be like. If these are good and firm, I'll be happy to order some at retail. Luckily I already have lots of tents and wagons from the Tabletop Props KSs. Definitely could use those walls and fences though.

I just got mine. They delivered it, like 10 minutes ago! I love it! The cart was a little twisty but a hot water bath should work perfectly! 

 

The material feels nice and sturdy and I can’t wait to paint the comfy chair!

 

the walls are a little short but really they’re to the scale they showed in the KS. It’s just shorter than I thought when it’s in my hand

Yeay! A forum I can post in for my TerrainCrate order! I got in late via BackerKit so I can't post on KS. I'd say order is completely random, since mine is arriving Monday via UPS and I only got in on pre-order. Town Crate, Wizard's Study, Dungeon Debris, Torture Chamber, Temple, and DS Furniture are on the way.

 

I regret not ordering the campsite and will probably get one or two once they show up in retail. Bed pallets and tents are useful things in most adventures.

      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.

      3D Render of the Lannister Guards. 2 copies of this unit are included in the Starter Set!  
      Combat Unit cards  
      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 came across my newsfeed on Facebook and I thought the minis looked interesting.

      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."

      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 ;)
