Drake KS

Recommended Posts

I finally broke down and got the $85 army box pledge. I have a hard time resisting dragon stuff even though I doubt that I'll play the actual wargame.


I'm getting the Rish army because I think a lot of the smaller minis will be useful for Pathfinder and the armored dragons are pretty unique. I also threw in an extra $10 to get the mini of the big cat rider :)


Must resist putting even more money in... with this I've already dropped like $500 on kickstarters, ick.

Oh this one is getting so juicy towards the end. 24 HOURS LEFT!


It appears that the 99k goal will fall for sure (just $750 away atm). After that is the next big dragon at $105. I think that's possible, but it's cutting it close. It's of interest that there has been $3-4K increase in pledges since I last checked at the 28 hour mark. At that rate we could actually hit the terrain bonus. I would go bo-nanners if that happened.


I wish I could get into a $129 pledge, that'd be sick.. I'm really into this kickstarter but there really does seem to be some nice Kickstarters going on right now. The Itar's workshop dungeon kickstarter is looking good enough to possibly lure me away from the Dwarven Forge one for less money, which would make it easier going in big on Drake. So many things to figure out, fast.

I've had to cut out of several KS's I wouldn't have normally....and regret some expenditures earlier in the year that I would have preferred to spend on stuff thats out now.

It very well could. I'm actually a bit worried about all the freebies they've added to the $240 level, I hope they did their math correctly as they've added a LOT of stuff to that level in the past two days.

I think this game was initially trying to get funded on Indigogo and failed. What a difference KS has made! (and maybe some different structuring?)

One of the big things that affected the Indigogo was the funding amount (they wanted $60k) and that the cheapest buy in was over $100. They also only had one miniature finished.


Even though they probably still needed 60k to make what they needed going with 10k and hoping they'd get to 60k worked out as high initial goals really drive a lot of pledgers away.

      Welcome to The Land and the world of Spitfyre, our exciting game of aerial warfare in a fantasy world. Enter a world where Dwarves and Orcs fly giant creatures and arm them with bombs and machine guns to continue their millennia long struggles... Come fight in the skies of Spitfyre and see if you can reign supreme over The Land!
      Spitfyre is a fun 'Historo-Fantasy' miniature aerial wargame in which 10mm scale miniatures are used to depict the everyday struggles of standard fantasy races such as Orcs and Dwarves fight out battles with 20th century weaponry.
      We are keeping this Kickstarter very simple with three basic pledge levels. The key one is 'Pilot' where pledgers will receive a discounted copy of the core game and ALL stretch goals added in FREE of charge.
      THE TARGET - £1000
      Spitfyre - the core game The target goal is to produce the core game which will include the rulebook, a flight of three 10mm scale resin Orc Spitfyre wyverns, a flight of four 10mm scale polyurethane resin Dwarf War-Eagles and seven flying bases.
      STRETCH GOAL I - £1500
      If we reach Stretch Goal I, all Pilot backers will have one polyurethane resin 10mm scale Dwarf KampfGrier 87 vulture dive bomber and flying base added to their pledge for free and the rules will be extended to include dive bombing.
       More Stretch Goals to come...

      Well, the HeroQuest Kickstarter  crowdfunding is in its final few hours - I ended up being pushed over the event horizon by my girlfriend, and went in for the 110 Euro pledge.
      HeroQuest was her introduction to fantasy gaming - I brought my old, battered, but much loved original copies over to her mum's house for Thanksgiving.
      She still loves that game.
      And... there are some elements that I am seeing that I really like - the mummies look like dried cadavers instead of Egyptian mummies, and the terrain looks fantastic.
      Hopefully.... I will be able to drag the Anniversary edition to her mum's for next Christmas.
