They added a new pledge level for Roleplayers. its $64 and comes with one box of miniatures of choice, 1 plastic ship, and the stretch goal box.

sorry. Yes. They label things a little differently in this.

 

Their “stretch goals” that are reached by reaching a certain pledge level, aren’t free. They are added as add-ons that you can add to your pledge. 
 

The free “stretch goals” are called “box of plunder” and are added free to the levels that include the box of plunder. These goals are not reached by achieving a certain funding level. They are unlocked by doing social media stuff. Like posting pictures of painted pirates, singing sea chantys and posting them, sharing your favorite book about 18th century, etc. 

 

You can purchase the box of plunder if you want additional copies or are at a pledge level that doesn’t come with it. It currently has an alternate black beard miniature, and one of the current goals is a priest. Though my favorites are cannon crew arms and extra heads and command options that will fit their sailor or militia boxes. 
 

Other than the little tease about female pirates in the comments, there hasn’t been any other mention so I doubt that will be a thing in this Kickstarter, but there is still the possibility of plastic native Americans and plastic soldier cavalry. People have asked if the plastic natives will be northern natives or Caribbean natives. I don’t know if that’s been answered yet.

Does anyone know if one is able to pick up only that kickstarter guest artist miniature from the Box of Plunder? I would not mind picking up that one.

Nothing is marked Kickstarter exclusive (to my knowledge) so presumably it will be available on its on at retail. 
 

you can buy the box of plunder separately for $25. But you can’t buy individual items from the box seperate in the Kickstarter.

This just became more tempting...

Have they talked about sprue compatibility anywhere or done size comparisons?


short answer: no

 

but..,

 


“Someone asked for a comparison shot, so here you go. 3 on the left are 3d prints of the new plastics and 3 on the right are metal models”

 
edit: I (Smokestack) don’t own any of their models so I don’t know how big the metal models in the pic below really are. But the plastic look to match up well with them...
 

also under the militia box update they posted: 

 "What we can tell you is that this box will allow you to field non-uniformed units such as militia men, rangers, and rebels! This box will feature a lot of compatibility with the sailors box. Heads, weapons, etc. will be interchangeable with models from this and the sailors box. This will give you EVEN MORE variability and uniqueness for your armies. "

 

i asked the following : “I like this statement, but that leads me to ask about compatibility with the soldiers box. I added a militia box. May add another depending on what else gets unlocked. Still waiting to see more of the head options on the soldiers before I add them.”

 

they answered:

“I plan to have some compatibility with the soldier set, but can't make any promises yet. We'll update on that as we get the sculpts rolling.”

 

in another post he mentioned the plastic minis are 31mm to eyes. Was trying to find the post but 800+ comments I gave up. 
 

edit: also the plastic sets come with round bases with a wood plank effect.

I think I might wait until retail and see if I want to complement my Brinemere/Dreadwind stuff. If anything I'd get the pirates of legends, because it's got fancy pants and regular sailors of note. Some casualties would be nice. I guess I could always make some from a sailor box.

3 more days. 

 

The native american (Caribbean) set has been unlocked. That's 4 sets now of multi-part hips that are available. 

 

Soldiers

Sailors

Militia

Caribbean natives

 

These sets are $25 each and come with enough bodies to make 12 figures each with lots of head options and weapon options...

 

But... I had misunderstood about the character models and stretch goal. All of the figures in this kickstarter are multi-part HIPS plastic. So Blackbeard, Maynard, the alternate Blackbeard, the priest, the unlocked heads and weapons, etc... as well ad the "pirates of Legend" box. That comes with 10 multi-part HIPS pirate characters. So. Even if you were not looking for a "Stede Bonnet" or "Anne Bonnie" mini... being multi-part plastic makes it easier to convert into something you do want and can use.... So that is the Pirates of Legend set added for me...

 

My all in while this is live is $258.00 which includes the bases set (game, 24 sailors, 2 pirate ships) the box of plunder, 2 boxes of militia, another pirate ship, and the pirates of legend...

      Story
      In the depths of Agaldurs Keep, where the deep roots of the ancient Dwarven king's mines break into the natural homeland of the Gnomes, the magicks of the Darkewood begin to take hold. In the years after the Dwarves had left these lands the Gnomes took up residence in the lower sections of the Keep finding it infinitely more comfortable than their underground holes. Moving here exposed the Gnomes to new creatures, new tools and of course the magick that weaves through the Darkewood. Over time Gnomish society changed and began revolving around frogs and fairies instead of just dirt.
          More Gnomes? is this just an excuse for Bad puns?
      No of course not,  but when opportunity knocks it would be rude not to open the door eh?  We originally launched the 'Gnome More MR. Nice Guys' miniatures in 2018 and had always hoped to explore deeper into the history of these strange creatures. Where did they come from, What are they wearing and Why do they get so angry?  With your help in funding this project not only will we be able to answer some of these burning questions but we will also be able to bring a whole heap of brand new Northumbrian Tin Minis into production for general release next year. 
      We spent a fair amount of time considering how these gnomes fit into the world along with the rest of the Nightfolk and the Denizens of the Wood and so to help you bring a little bit more of that world to life they also come equipped with a small free digital adventure. Rumor has it that our author Ken became so engaged with the characters and lore that he built a whole campaign around it, which he may or may not have committed to paper - we shall have to see!
      We have 8 Gnomes and 5 Toads as well as an epic Toad mounted Deathstealer, Several stretch goals which include Additional free Minis!
        What do you get out of this? Well, you can get all of those fantastic miniatures we just mentioned and some addons with a fantastic discount on the usual retail price and perhaps bag yourself some free stretch goals on top!  You also get to lend us a hand in shaping these characters and the lore that surrounds them.

      Story
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
