You'll get the female figurehead with the ship - but it's not the same as the pirate lady figurehead. So if you want that instead, you'll have to add it. :)

Ron posted this in the comments of the update. 

  • The Pirate Maiden is the default. Apologies for not making that clear in the update.

And this:

  • The Pirate Maiden comes with the ship. It's in the pledge manager just for folks who want extras or who just want one to paint (without having to order a ship).

So it looks like that pirate maiden is already included with the ship. So I can spend that $8 on werewolves.

Thanks for correcting me on this - I thought the pirate maiden was a new one, along with the other two. :)

So I cant believe I am the first to pun this....  The Sea Giant really thinks he is something, he has a ship on his shoulder...

Looks like a ship off the ol' dock to me.. >.>

 

 

I don't know if I'm getting him. I'm kinda drooling on those werewolves, though; those are great.

Does anyone know if the ship prow pauldron on the Sea Giant is a separate piece or moulded on? It would make a nice piece f scenery just on its own.

Oh yes, the real Sea Giant:

Is that the Ship once known as Seawise Giant (almost 600,000 tons) or a different vessel? @paintybeard

Is that a genuine concern?  I mean, has that happened before, and if so, how much was it jacked up?  I waited til the end to lock in last time, and I don't recall the shipping being unusually high.  Memory fades, though.

 

Also, that's still an impressive list of Bones for someone who's holding back.

There's always a chance that a shipper will change it's rates.  The software Reaper uses tries to select the most economical shipper, but there are no guarantees.  To my understanding, shipping rate / total shipping cost has nothing to do with when you locked in.  Only the size and weight of the boxes.

No, they are different ships, both flippin' big mind you.

 

Easy ID; Sea Giant had 2 funnels, Seawise Giant had only 1.

I'm also hoping for cannons to be added separately. Either individually, or in sets of 2, 5 or 10. My Fisher price ships need arming.

 

So Far, My locked in consists of: 

Pirate ship x 1

Female henchmen x 1

 

I don't know. There is plenty I like, but something keeps stopping me from adding more. I kind of wish there was a "all rainbow sculptor" Option. But even then I am not sure I would bump up right now.

I've only added the Core set & the ship so far. Just no interest in adding more to my order. I'm sure that'll change in the coming months but the one thing that really sticks out is the ship & currently I kinda wish I hadn't bought it.

I alternate between regretting i got it, and wanting to add a second one.

Yah no way I'll be doing that & I really don't care what materials they decide to cast it in. If anything, I can always try to sell it off on ebay whenever I get it, if the love for it never comes back.

      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.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.
