That's a free stretchgoal 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...

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
