  1. short answer: no but.., “Someone asked for a comparison shot, so here you go. 3 on the left are 3d prints of the new plastics and 3 on the right are metal models” edit: I (Smokestack) don’t own any of their models so I don’t know how big the metal models in the pic below really are. But the plastic look to match up well with them... also under the militia box update they posted: "What we can tell you is that this box will allow you to field non-uniformed units such as militia men, rangers, and rebels! This box will feature a lot of compatibility with the sailors box. Heads, weapons, etc. will be interchangeable with models from this and the sailors box. This will give you EVEN MORE variability and uniqueness for your armies. " i asked the following : “I like this statement, but that leads me to ask about compatibility with the soldiers box. I added a militia box. May add another depending on what else gets unlocked. Still waiting to see more of the head options on the soldiers before I add them.” they answered: “I plan to have some compatibility with the soldier set, but can't make any promises yet. We'll update on that as we get the sculpts rolling.” in another post he mentioned the plastic minis are 31mm to eyes. Was trying to find the post but 800+ comments I gave up. edit: also the plastic sets come with round bases with a wood plank effect.
  2. Nothing is marked Kickstarter exclusive (to my knowledge) so presumably it will be available on its on at retail. you can buy the box of plunder separately for $25. But you can’t buy individual items from the box seperate in the Kickstarter.
  3. sorry. Yes. They label things a little differently in this. Their “stretch goals” that are reached by reaching a certain pledge level, aren’t free. They are added as add-ons that you can add to your pledge. The free “stretch goals” are called “box of plunder” and are added free to the levels that include the box of plunder. These goals are not reached by achieving a certain funding level. They are unlocked by doing social media stuff. Like posting pictures of painted pirates, singing sea chantys and posting them, sharing your favorite book about 18th century, etc. You can purchase the box of plunder if you want additional copies or are at a pledge level that doesn’t come with it. It currently has an alternate black beard miniature, and one of the current goals is a priest. Though my favorites are cannon crew arms and extra heads and command options that will fit their sailor or militia boxes. Other than the little tease about female pirates in the comments, there hasn’t been any other mention so I doubt that will be a thing in this Kickstarter, but there is still the possibility of plastic native Americans and plastic soldier cavalry. People have asked if the plastic natives will be northern natives or Caribbean natives. I don’t know if that’s been answered yet.
  4. They added a new pledge level for Roleplayers. its $64 and comes with one box of miniatures of choice, 1 plastic ship, and the stretch goal box. A bunch of stretch goals have been reached adding some crates, extra heads, animals, weapons and such.
  5. The following is a list of units that can be built using just the parts found in the sailor box: This box will include tons of options for players to create sailor miniatures of any European power from the 17th or 18th century. Check out just some of the options available in beautiful detail :D
  6. 3 stretch goals announced. No pictures yet. funding is currently at $178,760
  7. I saw Knight of the Dinner table asked in the comments about how big the plastic minis are. They answered 31mm to the eyes. The creators had a live chat last night. I only caught the end on it, but they mentioned that the campaign is doing better than expected and it was asked if there would be another ship in this campaign. The answer was it’s possible but the campaign would have to do extremely better than expected and even then they would have to be sure as to not delay what’s already here. So I would read that as not likely.
  8. I asked about plastic female pirates in the comments, the creator implied they might bd coming,
  9. im not interested in the game. Well I kind of am but doubt I can convince my friends to play. But I do like the ships and the crew. Just the ships and crew come to $101 if you buy separately. So for $17 you get black beard, Maynard and the stretch goal box. Plus the game mat looks good. though I could just get a bunch of crew... anyway, I’m in for the $119 now. Will see though. just realized the unit boxes come with 12 figures... so the base game is actually valued at $126 for just the 2 ships and 24 crew. I will probably keep the base game pledge. I actually don’t like that all the metal heroes have to be purchased, I only really wanted Anne Bonny and Mary Read.
  10. Saw an info video they had posted on YouTube. The starter set will come with 2 ships. Multipart plastic “Bermuda sloops” that they said were around 10” in length. It will be armed with 8 cannons and 4 swivel guns. Stretch goals may include some sail options. Amongst other things. the starter set will be under $150. And come with 2 crews. they also teased some metal heroes. Including Jack Racham, Stede Bonnet, Anne Bonney and Black Beard. I’m definitely interested. These ships will make cool small ships to harass the reaper ship in a Pirate game. Or perhaps the reaper ship will be the pirates and my players can have one of these smaller ships. Kickstarter starts tomorrow at 2 pm eastern time
  11. I plan on getting some ghost Archipelago crew if I get the firelock ones. I don’t mind if they are slightly smaller or larger. I mixed some frostgrave wizards with shield maidens and the size differences looked more pronounced but still kit bashed well. The only reason I haven’t gotten the ghost archipelago crew yet is their lack of black powder weapons. edit: there is a metal bit upgrade you can buy for the ghost archipelago crew but I prefer plastic bits

  13. Dear backers, Our campaign is over. We would like to thank for for your generous support. Overall we're quite happy. We have gathered slightly more money than in the Season I, we have also much more backers than previously. Obviously it doesn't mean there is no room for improvement. I'm sure that both we and you feel that result could be little bit better. Happily we know what to change – w have received a lot of feedback from you so we know how to improve our campaign in Season III. Yes, there will be season III. And its design will be more similar to Season I than to Season II as its clearly your will :) We can blame covid too. Many of you strictly expressed that due to uncertain economical situation could afford just few miniatures instead of full Season II. We fully undestand it and are deeply grateful that you decided to support us in this circumstances. As we didn't manage to unlock Fujiko, she will appear in Pledge Manager as add-on. She and Misaki will receive rules to use them as part of Hot and Dangerous faction in Anno Domini 1666. More details in the next update. Please expect an update in 2-3 weeks. We'll open pledge manager and explain how to use it (Our returning backers should be familiar with it). In the Pledge Manager you will be able to add miniatures to your order, we'll also have entire range of Anno Domini 1666 sets available :) Thanks again for your support! Wargamer Team
  14. I like the harpy minions and boss... but I’m still out. Hopefully I will find someone selling them on eBay later on.
