For those who missed out on the Kickstarter, Mr. Dubois has added a backdoor timeframe for those who wish to join in the Kickstarter by going directly to Fundafull and signing in to get their own Core Starter Set.

 

The most recent update from the KS reads:

 

"First a quick update on the Pledge Manager. Total pledges are now at $149,085 CAD with 931 Backers registered and we have sent out another round of invite reminders to the 93 who still need to register. The Fundafull team have also unlock the Pledge Manager to allow new outside backers to join for our additional funding campaign to reach $185K CAD in total pledges and unlock a few more desired stretch goals not reached during the Kickstarter. 
 
Here is the new direct link to setup an account on the War for Terra Nova Pledge Manager, for new backers who missed the Kickstarter campaign. If you already backed the Kickstarter don't use this link, you need to register using the invite email that was sent out to you previously."

So, if you noticed the Heavy Gear KS, or your friends or family did and were not able to join in, the chance is now.
 
Peace, and Happy New Year!

The latest update is pretty important for backers to read.

I'll copy/paste the important bits here:

 

 

We hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, we've be busy on our side going over mold quotes and crunching the numbers. When planing the Kickstarter in the summer of 2014 we did a lot of research, talked to a lot of people and got estimated quotes and costing on every aspect of plastic injection mold making and production. We gave ourselves a good 15% safety margin on all the quotes and even on the $CAD to $USD exchange rate, as most suppliers are paid in US dollars. The Canadian dollar has had a very rocky ride this last year and lost more that 30% of its value. Went we looked at the final mold manufacturing quotes we received in early January, based on the final parts sprues, we needed to face reality. We had planned on doing 6 molds originally with 4 models in each mold. But the final quotes came in a bit higher than expected and coupled with the lower Canadian dollar, we need to play it safe and have decided to just make 5 molds instead. We have managed to fit all but two of the originally announced models into the 5 molds. We agonized over which 2 models we would cut and final decided on the cutting Tiger and Sidewinder, as they fill a similar roll to the Hunter and Jager in the game. On the positive side we have added 1 extra Acco Mount to the Core Starter Set and more options for the Caprice Mounts and lots of extra weapons for all the models, read all details below. We apologize and hope everyone with understand our decision.

 

...

 

Right now some Backers have Tiger and Sidewinder plastic models selected as Add-ons in the Pledge Manager, which we will not be able to ship. We have unlocked all the Backer orders on the Pledge Manager and would like everyone to login, using the link below (if you forgot your password there is recoverlink on the login page). Once your logged in please check your Add-ons and if you have any platic Tigers or Sidewinders selected please zero them out and use your extra available funding pledge to select some other available Add-ons.

Okay, the long wait is over.  finally received this kickstarter in all its glory.  the final product is really nice and well worth the wait.  the plastic used for the minis is a really strong hard plastic and takes both super glue and standard plastic cement depending on how you want to put the pieces together. There are plenty of optional parts to customize the force with and the rule book is also very nice and is really well set up for teaching the game. 

 

Even though the wait was long, and they were waaaaay over due, I think I would back them again.  The product was well done and the communication continued to be good throughout the entire delay process

that's odd.  all of my sprues have a little tab on them with the name of the model on the sprue.  Weird.  they also have a free construction guide that is in drivethru RPG that you can get that has a picture of each sprue and the name and number of each part on the sprue

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.
