  1. agreed on both counts. And apparently others feel the same way as the question about just a pledge for minis has been asked several times on the Kickstarter but the creator has said no. so yeah I’m not interested in the game, and the cost is just too high for only using the minis..,, so it’s a no go for me.
  2. New update Alright guys, based on the research from the backers, and looking at my options for molding, we are going to cut the obstacles once more. If we reach 6k, we will create a Satyr 4x6 mold, and combine the Scythians and Amazons into a 6x9 mold, allowing us to make 8 miniatures per sprue and with 50+ parts. Creating 8 sprues would net 64 models, allowing the original 32 and 32 as intended. Focusing on the two molds would achieve a lowered mold cost overall, while achieving the same goal. As the more we mold, the more the anticipated sprue sales come (the real money maker for the factory). For you Amazons become an option at 6k. The difference needed would be covered by myself. If we can raise more, we can then round out the horses. We would honor the $20 Scythian box pledges with the same combination 32/32 (Scythians and Amazons). Progression tier would benefit fast, allowing themselves to have access to Amazons and Scythians much faster, and the base Satyrs. So if you have a steppe desire, the progression tier is going to rock your world. So if you got the $20 box of Scythian, you get 32 Scythian and 32 Amazons? What do you get at the $40 progression tier? The Scythians and Amazons would be put together in one box, thus making 64 models. Two boxes would be available at the bare minimum. Thus, if wanted, you could nab two of those boxes for 128 models. Or 64 and 32 on the Satyrs.
  3. There are daily unlocks and stretch goals. The Free mini stretch goals seem to only be for teh $120 level.
  4. Yeah, I am backing at the $40 level, and only really want the Amazons... but if this reaches minimum funding level then thats 2 boxes of hard plastic minis for $20 each... I am not sold on the beast men, but I could see getting some of their fauns... and $20 is not a bad discount. At $12,000 the amazons unlock, and the $40 nets you 3 boxes. And at $18,000 the horses unlock and nets you 4 boxes. Which makes them $10 a box. If the Amazons unlock, then I will get all amazons... if it reaches $18,000 i may do 3 amazons and 1 scythian... but if they only reach the $6,000 and are too short to reach the $12,000 needed for the amazons, I will keep my pledge and just get some fauns.
  5. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/farsidegames/epic-seven-arise-the-board-game?ref=profile_saved_projects_live Looks interesting. Though i dont really have $95 or $120 to throw at it right now. The Hero minis are said to be 35mm - 40mm. The minion monsters look pretty cool. Apparently its based on some digital game, but i have no actual experience with that. Just think the minis look cool.
  6. We stopped gaming in person in February (shortly after my birthday), but continued playing on line... We did most of Rise of teh Runelords that way. When things kind of got back to normal here in Maryland we went back to in-person gaming. man i hated playing through Skype and that other one... (forgot the name). We did a Starfinder campaign and are now doing a starwars EOTE campaign. Honestly if playing virtually became the only way to cpntinue playing, i think I would probably quit. I am looking forward to minis coming, but this year's gaming issues probably contributed as to why i didnt go very big on this one. Only got the Ship, the henchwoman, the vampire encounter. the ghoul encounter, the halloween knight , the kids and the demon sex clubbers. Just added another Shadows of Ravenhome...
  7. Some pics from the last couple of Updates... plus, they are allowing the fauns and Centaurs from KS 1 as options when you pick plastic sets.
  8. Thanks! Ok... I sense an early self bough birthday present.
  9. Hello, does anyone have any of the female legends of Signum models? If so could you possibly give a size comparison next to a reaper mini? I am looking to buy Aurora Corentyne the Sword of Aria... but the site says she is 43mm tall... which sounds like she would tower over everything else and be if no use for me... but I can’t find any comparison pics on line. Any one got any?
  10. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rgdgaming/28mm-hard-plastic-satyrs-and-scythians/?ref=kicktraq these guys did the plastic fauns set. This time Its satyrs and Scythians. With unlocks for Scythian cavalry and Amazon’s. im in for the $40 level. It starts at 1 box, but unlocks a second at $6000 and a 3rd at $12,000. Not bad for $40. Shipping is a flat $8. You can mix snd match.., so if you want one each of the plastic sets or all Amazon’s.
  11. The Hydra is cool, as is the elf flying mount... My favorite troops are the Hexes. Though I do appreciate that the Swordsman, and Crossbows are one piece.
  12. I didn’t get any free undead halflings... though from the comments I probably should have, the creator seemed surprised that I didn’t. Not a big deal for me as I have no use for undead halflings. my sorceress on flying mount had a big air bubble on the mount’s torso where the rider torso would attach to the mount. It basically ate the waist and saddle meaning the rider can’t attach. I emailed them and their customer service is great. They said they would replace.
  13. Well... since there seems to be no standard practice with the shipping, it could have been. But... mine did not require a signature... so maybe?
  14. The Jackaks were medium. The Jackal horrors were large. The Alpha should be large. And he is large... but mostly because of the base pillar thing he is on, but he is smaller than the horrors. He could probably pass as medium but won’t fit on a medium base because of the pillar. Edit: I had the Kickstarter photos that showed the units as advertised... but I can’t seem to get the photos to work today... so just imagine...
  15. So, someone pointed out that update 13 says this “ We plan to keep this open for as long as possible until we need to confirm information for fulfillment. So, it should be open until at least June of 2021. “ so looks like it will be open until June.
  16. Only thing the creator has said is “at least 3 months”... so March?
  17. Mine arrived today too. Sucked up most of my attention. I was able to play a bit with stuff at lunch. The sorceress on volocigator is pretty awesome... though I managed to break her so I converted her a bit with some dark elf bits, pretty happy with the stuff I got. Though I have no idea where I will put stuff. I am only 2 units in of like 20 and already no space. oh and I love the jackals but... the jackal alpha is smaller than the jackal horrors... I had thought he would be at least as big as he was more expensive and supposed to be on a 50mm base.
  18. Got access to the pledge survey today. It’s been open since last Monday but there was a bug and some (me included) hadn’t gotten the link, or access, but that’s now been resolved. the survey is pretty nice and straight forward. I finalized my pledge and then promptly went back in and added another box just to make sure I could. I plan on adding another box of soldiers, and maybe a native box and cavalry box before it closes for good. currently I am set for: i basic game box.. that has 2 ships 2 sailor boxes Blackbeard and Maynard snd a loot box as well as 1 more ship 2 boxes of militia 1 pirates of legend 1 soldiers box
  19. My tracking says my shipment should be here... yesterday... then updated to today. Then updated to tomorrow...
  20. well, that’s better news! But kind of makes what they have been saying ... not universally accurate. But my order has now been updated as “picked up by carrier” so ... ah least that’s something. the hydra pic in your other post looks great. I have one of those coming too as part of the elf army.
  21. I had a big long response that got eaten... so here is my summed up response. it seems like there are several steps to their “shipped”. The pm stating shipped isn’t the final step. from what they have said on the message section. Once the pm says shipped, your order is moved to the packing area. There it is packed by the packing team. That team then sends to the shipping team who contact whatever shipping company is used for your area. They then contact that shipper who sends out an email to you with tracking. So it’s sounds like your order is still at the packing stage. Mine is at the shipper sends out email stage. But mine hasn’t shipped yet either. It still just says label created. so.., I think you will get tracking, it’s just not at that stage yet. So we still wait...
  22. Got a tracking notice. The label was created today. So it takes a couple days for them to pack it up after the pm status changes. Excited now. Soon an army of dark elves will make it to maryland after crossing the narrow sea...
  23. Gah...now that the countdown is ticking i kind of want another ship. I have no use for it, have no where to store it... but man do i want it... and I know I will will regret not getting it.
  24. Mine were shipped 2 weeks ago but I haven’t received them yet. I have never had an issue with lost packages but 2 weeks has me worried. I sent them a message to see if they have any tracking as I wasn’t provided any.
