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:

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.

Reverend Shartan

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.

      Hi all,
       
      Andrew May launched the second season of Black Crab Miniatures. I backed the first season, and was pretty happy with it. They’re resin minis with very creepy looks, I thought you guys might be interested. :)
       
      The campaign is very short, there’s already less than 24 hours to back it.

      About
      Welcome to the most thrilling raid in the miniature history! Choose your side, fight until the end and get greatly rewarded for your engagement!
      This campaign features 2 lines of miniatures!
      "Temple of Serpent" is a brand new collection inspired by the lost civilizations of Amazonia and Mesoamerica. It envisions an utopian enclave hidden so deep in the wilderness that it is considered forbidden territory. The tribe is focused on preserving an ancient magic with the help of gods and dinosaurs. Be the first to explore it!
      "Bloodsail Island" is an established line of ruthless ogre pirates. Upon discovering the Temple of Serpent they have became overpowered by the desire to plunder its treasures. They are going to need every hand on deck for this one, so the line is getting a massive extension! 
      Our products are in 28mm scale and come with square bases. Check pictures at the bottom of our campaign to see the size comparisons. All miniatures are made from high-quality resin that ensures highest details, durability and flexibility. 
      Based on our Kickstarter experience and community feedback we have came up with the simplest Reward System to date. You can choose one of the following pledges.
      Deckhand Pledge is for you if you are not sure what you need but you want to be a part of the campaing. It will give you the access to the Pledge Manager where you will be able to spend your additional funds on any miniatures you want. 
        Basic Pledge is for you if you do not want to pick a side. It is really simple. You plede $99 and you receive $99 to spend on addons. But on top of that you will choose and receive either a set of Serpent Freebies OR Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with those freebies packs.
      In Captain Pledge you become the commander of ogre pirate army! Pledge $199 to get Captain Krabor in special offer for $40. The rest of your funds ($159) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Ogre Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
      In Serpent Pledge you become the deity of the Temple! Pledge $199 to get High Priestess on Pterossus in a special offer for $50. The rest of your funds ($149) you will be able to spend in the Pledge Manager on any addons that you see fit. On top of that, you will receive  a set of Serpent Freebies. The more SG we unlock the more value will come with your freebies packs.
        After the campaign ends, we will open a Pledge Manager. You will receive an e-mail address with a link to it. When you log in, you will be able to pick your rewards and spend your funds on any chosen add-ons from the campaign. You will also be able to transfer additional funds via PayPal. After finishing an order a shipping cost will be charged, based on your address and the package weight. 
      All additional funds you pledge over your reward price you will be able to spend on add-ons.
      When our Campaign is live we will post a link to an online calculator that will help you in figuring out how much you need to pledge to get all the miniatures you want. 
      Example 1: You want just 3 units of Raptor Riders that are $39 each. In order to get them you need to choose Basic Pledge and pledge $117 (3x $39) for it. This will allow you to spend that $117 in Pledge Manager and choose 3x Raptor Riders. On top of that you will be able to choose a set of freebies (either Serpent of Ogre one).
      Example 2: You want Captain Krabor, 3 units of Sharkman that are $39 each and 5 units of goblins that are $12 each. In order to get those you should choose Captain Pledge and pledge $217 for it. In this pledge Captain Krabor is in a better price and you will also get $159 for other addons. You need 3x $39 + 5x $12 = $177 so you need to pledge $18 on top of the pledge price to cover everything. 
      In case of any mistakes, there will be no problem with make a correction. You will always be able to add funds in the Pledge Manager via PayPal, so if you do not pledge enough through Kickstarter, you will still be able to get everything you need after the campaign ends.

        Risks and challenges
      Risks and challenges that are a part of every campaign with tabletop collectible miniatures are usually:
      - Delay in delivery
      - Production difficulties
      - Digital models conversion and creation of production molds
      - Communication with the Backers that are postponing filling out the Pledge Manager that creates a delay for the start of targeted production
      We have a lot of experience as for the miniatures production and delivery and we will do our best to keep risk levels at minimum and deliver the best miniatures that you have always wanted.

      Enter a Realm of Unending Darkness

      About
          Welcome to our latest Kickstarter release: Wood Elves
      A collection of wood elf miniatures that will continue to grow after the completion of this project. So let us know what else you want to see. We may even squeeze a few more miniatures into this campaign! 
       
      Artist (Dan Jack): "This was quite an exciting project to work on.  I have always pictured wood elves to be more feral and slightly darker than modern interpretations. The horns for me, are a way of depicting an elder, in an otherwise young looking race. As the elves become more integrated with the forest, they start to develop horns, which are seen as a nod to their stature with in the force. You will see some of the leaders with horns. This in turn, is a foundation we will be building into the narrative of our game. The death of an elf works in both directions. As they come closer to death and old age, you shall see a more warped by the forest aesthetic. I am looking forward to pushing this further with characters in the expansion of this range, as well as more young'uns."
        Please note that the items that are shown in black are a guaranteed addition to box sets. They will be revealed as stretch goals to generate excitement!
       
      Shipping Date:  APRIL 2020
      If you don't want the full box set, you can build your own custom order, by adding up the value of the items you want, and then pledge that amount in the 'build you own pledge' reward. You will get to pick and choose what you want in the pledge manager using your credit.

      Quite a long time ago, this project was on KS for the first time. The creator had a lot to learn about material, options on sprues, poses etc ... so the first KS lost momentum. He sure took his time and now he's back and it looks to me (at first glance) that he definitely did his homework. It might me a niche "army", but I'm definitely interested in a pack of those fauns.
      If some of the stretch goals get unlocked, there is some awesome stuff coming.
