Was teased at Reapercon (well, it was on the product list) but was not available yet, @CAVBOSS mentioned it should be available next year sometime during one of the youtube chats but would not be included in the Kickstarter.

 

A little birdy told me that the awesome painter helping to put it together is doing a "Savage" job...

Good to know.  Hopefully this means Reaper will be carrying the full line of CAV paints on their site soon, since it's the only way for international customers to get it (without resorting to a reshipping service). 

 

As for that little bird, I've heard her skill is legendary but @Wren is no savage! ::P:  If it's Adam, aren't these a tad... Small in scale for what he's usually all over?  Usually he's drooling over 4"+ size stuff :ph34r:

 

Edit: oh, probably referring to Savage Coyote, I suspect..

@Savage Coyote would certainly do a great job :poke:

 

From my understanding, nothing is fully set in stone though. Could decide to go a completely different direction. Personally I think it would be awesome to use the Warhawk/Starhawk V and some of the paints from this kickstarter. CAVBOSS has also said the LTPK will not be in the Kickstarter though, so that seems unlikely. The Dictator seems to be a very popular model for things like this.

CAV KICKSTARTER 3 UPDATE:

For those people looking to try out the game for the first time and are just not sure of what they need, we have put together a new Basic Training set as an Add-On option. This should give everyone the greatest flexibility in choosing what will work best for them if they are looking at the game for the first time! Possible options include:

Option One: Choose the Rookie Pilot Option and pledge $25. This will allow you to start with the rulebook and by adding additional funds, whatever other miniatures, etc. you would like to add.

Option Two: Choose the Rookie Pilot Option and pledge $50. This will allow you to start with the Basic Training Set add-on and by adding additional funds, whatever other miniatures, etc. you would like to add.

Option Three: Choose the Ace Pilot Option and pledge $100. This will allow you to start with the Core Set Reward (miniatures only) and by adding additional funds, whatever other miniatures and add-ons you would like to add.

Option Four: Choose the Dropship Pilot Option and pledge $125. This will allow you to start with the Core Set Reward (miniatures only) and give you an extra $25 to spend on any other miniatures and add-ons you want to select (like the rulebook add-on). Adding additional funds will allow even more choice, and with this pledge level you will also receive the Dropship special reward package.

Option Five: The "I Just Can't Wait for the Rulebook" option. Go to talon(dot)games website and select the rulebook along with a squad of four figures that we will add for FREE. Purchases over $35 include FREE SHIPPING (US only).

There hasn't been much movement in the past few days, but there wasn't at this point in the last kickstarter either. We're actually ahead of where we were.

 

I've got hope of getting those aircraft.

Yeah...these tend to be more of a slow burner as people wait to see what opens (which kinda defeats the purpose of pledging, but its just the way I guess). We have a lot of the more focused advertising starting on Monday, so my hope is to have the first SG by then to make it a better value. I wish we could get to the aircraft as well, there are 16 different models in that expansion total...that pales to the amount of terrain there is! ')

I don't play Templar or merc and have no plans to start...but I think I NEED those Mambas. I just have no idea what I'll be doing with them!

 

Aside from the Wrongart hover and maybe the DropShip, those are the first things that have caught my interest in this run.

The eagle-eyed may have noticed the Mamba changed from being a Hard vehicle to a Soft in the recent update. This mini is partly responsible.

 

As for the Wrongart hover, I wonder if there's another vehicle very similar to the Charger...?

16 models? Is that sixteen different models? Or is that four models each of four different models? :rolleyes:

Update? How recent? I might need to go back and re-download some cards...

Reverend Shartan

Looks like they're running the Kickstarter similar to how Reaper did the Bones ones, in that pledge levels are predominately just an amount of money that will be available to use in the pledge manager that comes after the Kickstarter finishes.  The only difference with this is the dropship pledge level, which includes a few extras alongside your pledge amount.

 

If you are looking at just the paints, and none of the models, I'd say go for the $5 tier, and then set the pledge amount to $24.  Shipping costs would be covered later on, once pledge manager opens.

Yep. Pledge at the $5 level and then add enough on top of the $5 to a total equal to the value of the paints you want.

 

So, as an example, you pledge $5, and as the paints are $12 per set, and there are two different sets, and assuming you want one of each, you would add $19 to your pledge. After the KS, when the pledge manager is made available, you would log into the PM, select the two paint sets, and then pay the shipping, and you're done.

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      Can't believe I missed this one until now.  I didn't have a printer during their previous projects, but I'm definitely in on this one.  Less than 48 hours to go.  Link added.

      Seek adventure amongst the stars! Explore strange new worlds, smuggle illicit cargos across the hyperspace lanes or launch a space to ground assault, in your Scout Ship, Transport, or Space Shuttle!
      Somewhere in the outer reaches... Starship III introduces three original, fully 3D-printable spaceships scaled for 28mm play in your favourite Tabletop RPGs or Wargames. Complete with OpenLOCK-compatible modular interiors, the ships are detailed inside and out and a variety of configurations can be used to customise the deck plans.
      Each ship comes detailed inside and out (Scout ship standard interior shown here) As the campaign unfolds, new starship hull variants and modules will be unlocked as stretch goals to bring even more variety to your game and increase the pledge value for everyone.
      Each pledge is designed to be printed on your own 3D printer or via a print service, allowing you to print as many parts as you like, for non-commercial use. Deliverable files will be made available digitally in STL zip packs via DriveThruRPG.com (see Printing Requirements details below for print bed size requirements)
      Hangar 01: Space Shuttle Alpha Need a way to get your units from the ground to orbit? This space shuttle is fully modular and can be configured as a dropship, cargo shuttle, or even a small starship. The stock standard aerodynamic fuselage comes complete with manoeuvring thrusters, sensors, landing gear and articulated main thrusters for VTOL operations.
      The standard layout below is included in any pledges that include the shuttle Modular standard deck plan of shuttle interior. Hangar 02: Scout Ship Beta Explore deep space and final frontiers with this full 28mm scale scout ship, designed stock-standard for long haul endurance scout missions. Includes two manned turrets for defending in rough territory, a full sensor suite package for scanning new systems, a well equipped engineering section, cargo hold, living quarters and a 5-station forward bridge.
      These are the unique parts that compose the scout ship interior, which come as a part of any scout ship pledge Closeup of the Engineering Standard Deck Plan for the Scout Ship Beta Hangar 03: Transport Delta Cruise the hyperspace lanes in this high-speed transport. Haul cargo - legal or illicit - with two massive engines to get you from point A to point B.

      Just noticed this KS was posted here. Only 53 hours left....

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/wowbuildings/wowbuildings-further-space-adventures-3d-print-stl/description
       
      Here we are folks, WOWBuildings is expanding further into space, with the infrastructure now for several types of scenarios, this KS will be a mix of vehicles and Buildings so you will have an even bigger range of choices for your tabletops. all will come in STL format and cuts will be made where needed so boot up those 3D printers once again and jump on board for what hopefully will be a great sack full of goodies to enjoy.
      I am adding a couple of special adds that are for personal print use only as a little treat for you top end backers, all files will be initially 28mm scaled (but slightly over scaled to allow for GW sized figures) and optimized for 15-32mm scales so hopefully something for all.
      Again human based faction designs for this KS with other races in the pipeline if all goes well, so hello again and as usual keep the feedback coming and if you want anything specific added then just ask, if it can be done it will be so
      Stretch Goals as you see will start at £1000, and £500, but this time i am toying with adding some £250 jump points too here and there to add to the fun.
      I have tried to keep the pledge level prices as low as i can as well including the licence which is an absolute bargain price for this KS as a thank you for continued support and to help with those after Xmas blues.
      £10 Road Builder
      £30 Asteroid Miner
      £40 Planet Settler
