I backed one of Annie’s previous kickstarters, the one with all the forest animals including beavers and moose and bears (oh my).

I also bought several of her female minis and the sculpts are quite nice and the castings were great quality. Very sharp and clean. I’m very happy with what I’ve ordered and if finances allowed I would back again.

I've had a couple of her ks and was happy with both. One was also super quick. One-ish person operation so things can get bogged down, but never stops communication.

No fair!   

 

I was trying to save a little money this month, and now this...   

(I need to buy some more shelving to store more minis, and that costs money.)

It's exciting!

 

We unlocked Norbert the pony earlier too! :D

I'm backing this one - only have good things to say about the samurai kickstarter. Distinctive models, good quality, realistic scope (ie not thousands of stretch goals) and great turnaround and delivery. Plus sweets, teabags, badges and Guinea pigs.

I've backed this.

 

I backed three previous KSs ("My Last Sunrise - Gothic Horror 28mm Miniatures", "Freyja's Wrath: Dark Age & Fantasy 28mm Shieldmaidens" and "Onna-bugeisha and the Women of Feudal Japan").  Annie has been good at communicating with the backers, especially when there are delays.  (Freyja's Wrath was delayed due to reasons beyond her control and she was always communicative and kept us backers up-to-date.  Many KS project teams could learn from her example.)

Apologies for the quiet, I've been working at UK Games EXPO in Birmingham, 3 days of super hard work.

There's one more day left, I'm typing this from the hotel before I head back there for the final day, so if you're there and haven't come over yet, here's the map, we're on Sarissa Precision's stand.

So since the last update.....

We unlocked Norbert!
D71VtDiXkAAHbox.jpg

So he's automatically added to the All-in pledges (and two for the....two of everything pledge) and anyone else can add him for £8. He's a delightful little scamp, with his garlic, beers, sleeping bag, cardigan, keg.....

THEN!

...THEN!
We unlocked STICKERS!

More Martin Whitmore delights!

If you want any extra, just increase your pledge by £1 (and in the pledge manager you can let us know which ones you want)
AND THEN.............

(I know, I meant to update last night and the night before, but I pretty much fell into the hotel bed)

PEEGASUS!

IT'S HAPPENING!

PEEGASUS!

D8CNshtW4AIxZUM.jpg

Same with the others, if you're not in an all in pledge you can add these for £8 by clicking the "manage your pledge" button. Or if you are in Pledge #4 or #5 and want.....more.... you can add them the same way. Everyone needs more, they're the best thing to ever grace the tabletop world. Not biased of course.

I've been showing everyone at Expo my lil inked peegasus, it's amazing. Many excite!

WHAT'S NEXT?

The peeg sprite that comes with Thea, Amazon captain, will be added to pledges. Starting at #4 and #5 for the £12,000 mark, but subsequent stretches will roll out to basically everyone getting one. These can't be bought as add ons and will only be available post Kickstarter in the pack with Thea.

I had a cast out at the Bad Squiddo Beers meet up and the "awwwwwwwwwwwww" was immense. So smol! And with such a dinky lil rider! Eeeee!

Then.... we have another stretch goal.

You will be able to see it before the campaign ends, it's being sculpted right now......

It has an Amazon AND a Dwarf in it! More info to come on that, but it is going to be....hamazing.

INTERACTIVE STUFFS

I did a little impromptu live video on Facebook the other day just showing off some casts and inking them up so you can see the detail better. There's some cool backstory on Norbert that emerges!

https://www.facebook.com/TheDiceBagLady/videos/303294043879685/

In the coming week I'll be doing more live/interactive videos, such as painting some peegasus. I might try Kickstarter LIVE, even though it's been pretty terrible before, I think it was mostly the fault of the connection at my old place. I reckon we meet at KS Live, then if it all goes to pot we can jump over to Kickstarter. Good plan? I'll let you know in advance, it'll be an evening in UK time, and you'll be able to catch it later on too in case you miss it.

Once I'm back from the EXPO I'll be back on more regular updates and show offs and posts and all that! It's just been super hard as I've been glued to the stand.

Apart from Bad Squiddo beers, our annual meet up, which was a hoot as always! The place was super crowded and we couldn't fit everyone in shot, but here's a chunk!

I was passing around a load of master casts, and THEY ALL CAME BACK! HOORAY! And nobody dropped the tiny sprite!

Right I better get up and off to this EXPO.

See you soon, and keep telling your friends!

Annie

      Main Game ($80)

       
      Expansion Box ($40, so $120 total)

       
      We will ship your rewards at our cost to our international hubs. Depending on where in the world you are, we will either ship to you from our hub in the UK (EU backers), China (Asia Pacific backers), Singapore (Singaporean backers), Canada (Canadian backers), Australia (Australia and New Zealand backers) or Atlanta (USA and the rest of the world). Following is a list of rough estimates for shipping a standard game package (4kg volumetric weight). Keep in mind these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional buys you choose.
      USA: $10-$20 to most states. $50 to Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.  CANADA: $15-$30 to most cities.  LATIN AMERICA: $70-$80 to most countries.  ASIA: $10 to China, Hong Kong, and Singapore. $35 to most other countries (we can’t predict an estimate cost to Malaysia). OCEANIA: $20-$45 to Australia. $40 to New Zealand.  AFRICA: $95 to most countries.  EUROPE: $20-$30 to most countries.   • $35 to Norway, Switzerland, Finland, Estonia, and Latvia.   • $50 to Bosnia/Herzegowina, Croatia, and Iceland.   • $70-$80 to Israel, Liechtenstein, and Serbia.  • $90 to Belarus. Unfortunately, different import laws and customs have made it impossible for CMON to ship games to certain specific countries.
      *WE DO NOT SHIP TO:* Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan.

      About
      The Edge: Dawnfall is new miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms for 1-4 players. It was created by Michał Oracz (man behind 13 years of Neuroshima Hex and recent hit Cry Havoc) and it brings next level of competitive gameplay to the table. Fresh, exciting, pure and rewarding.
      It’s a living organism with a very passionate community. It’s thousands of hours of development, hundreds of unique art pieces, over hundreds of pages of rich and unique campaigns, 7 extremely asymmetric and unique factions and finally and most importantly a fast, dynamic and very exciting skirmish game with tons of cinematic skills and turn the tide moments.
      This is a second Edge the Boadgame Kicstarter, a reprint of our naive 2016 kickstarter promise of an unreasonably high amount of content that not only we still managed to reach, but even overdeliver. It’s our biggest and most ambitious project yet, it’s our favorite child, our blood tears and sweat. It’s a Beast!

      Remember this thread?
       
      You know, the Yedharo/GT project that was cancelled and they said they'd reluanch it?
       
      Well they relaunched it.
       
      There's a lot less units this time and far more characters (some of whom appear to have been inspired by the Atlantis Dwarfs or are attempting to copy their success but with a Yedharo/GT spin on it).
       
      I might jump in for a small handful of character models but I won't go in big on this one. Then again why would dwarfs go big? They're small. It's one of their defining features :).
       
      'cause Atlantis did dwarven women with shaved sides and some goat riders......
       

       
      He's baaaaack!
       

       
      She got off the goat
       

       
      Hammer Man is back again
       

       
      Apparently she's really "Busty"
       

       
      At least the leaping Trollslayer is back again :)
       

       
      Mr Ugly Sword is back again (don't know why).
       

       
      I like this new hammer man
       

       
      The ugly rectangular shield unit with hammers is back (the only returning unit).
      They really should've fixed those shields and the "3rd edition/Dragonpunk helmets".
       

       
      The Bloodbowl team is back as well (obviously).
