Le sigh. Still no hydra, phoenix, or the other minis I'm actually wanting to buy. I think, of the minis that have been previewed, only 1 is a figure I have on my buy list (the elf queen). I wonder what time on the 31st they'll lock the PM...

They mentioned this in the previous update: Lockdown will be 10PM UK time on Friday 31st.

 

I'm hoping to see a few dinos before locking in, but that's going to be tricky

Thanks for that. Sounds like they're about 5 hours ahead of EST, so I won't be home when it closes on Friday. So I'll have to finalize it by Thursday evening. Good to know.

Added this because she is a KS Exclusive.

Will pick up more Elves in retail.

I'm going back and forth on how big I want to go on this. I'm working a lot of overtime, so I feel like I can kind of justify a buy, but I also have Bones 5 to pay for, and I'm not sure if I really want to spring for the elf on the chicken-rex or the monster pack with the fire elemental. They're potentially really cool, and I like the look of several of those monsters, but I'm just not sure...

If you are looking at them for gaming, and you are a GM, then I recommend thinking about what encounters you can pull off with them.

 

That is why I am already statting out Dark Elf blood sports, and wondering how to build a Dark Elf arena....

 

I like this rendition of Dark Elves more than GW's. And the feathery dinos are a great touch.

 

They are not 'cold ones' - these are hot blooded dino critters.

 

For the undead... I have Gary Gygax's Necropolis as well as the as-yet-unread Mummy's Mask adventure path. (I don't want to run it, I want to play it.)

Ugh. Spent way too much and still didnt' get everything I wanted. Oh well. I'm still painting the halfling stuff anyway so... More of a collector I guess.

I know the feeling, I went in for almost all the Undead and still regret not getting all the Elves.

And in the meanwhile I only just started painting the first mini  of a whole army of lizardmen I got in the Lost Kingdoms KS, not to mention Bones..

Has there been any info on them actually delivering in March? Seems ambitious considering we haven't seen all the renders and next to no production pieces. With the scale of this KS I would be completly fine with my desert elves being late, just wondering ^^

Their last (halfling) Kickstarter was also quite successful - not as many miniatures as this one. I believe that if there was a delay it was not enough to really have an effect on me. And they also had not shown every model as a sculpt before they closed the pledge manager. They did most of the halflings (as far as I remember) in-house and they were FAST.

So....I originally pledged for the elf battalion.  How do I go about upgrading to the elf army?  I don't want both.

When you log into backerkit there's an option to change your pledge level - if you click on your pledge reward at the top of the page you then will see a screen showing your choices and a link to change pledge levels.

 

Screenshots attached (links circled).

Thanks!  I must have missed that.

It's not really clear that you can click on the pledge level, I only knew what to do because I clicked around until I found the right link for myself...

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
