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...

      This will have to do for now. This is short,  or it's been on a while. 8 days left.
      1-4 minis, kids on bikes (and/or skateboards) style, shipping included.

      Story
      Welcome to the Splintered Light Miniatures 15mm Return to the Black Root Forest Kickstarter Campaign.  For many years, renowned sculptor Ben Siens has added great sculpts to our line of fantasy figures.  A year ago, we ran a successful campaign adding beastmen and treemen into our range of miniatures.  Over the past year, Siens has sculpted more wonderful figures for us and we decided to offer them to you via a second Kickstarter.
          Our primary goal for this campaign is getting the funds needed for the production molds and initial castings.  Our hope is that as we get the funding for production molds, we can also keep Ben sculpting new figures for future lines.  We need you help to get this done so please pledge today!
        Our plan is to have 11 new codes but we will also be offering these along with the entire range of Ben Siens sculpted figures.
       
       
       
       
      There's only 4 days left in the campaign, so if you want some well-made 15mm goodness...

      Story
      Before the great rot, death was permanent. Unfortunately, death for those who were affected by the Soul Rot wasn't the end.
      The Soul Rot forced the soul to live on after the body gave up, condemning the soul to live forever in the state it left the body. These poor souls are known as Geists.
        Welcome to the first campaign by Fleshcraft studio!
              Working on a scary campaign for your DnD group? Or wanna expand the looks of your undead armies? Well, “unfortunately” for you, the ghosts have come to haunt you! In this campaign, you will receive a set of terrifying digital 3D ghosts in the .stl format.

                  Every model will have 2 options included:
      Presupported STL file. Download and print! Clean model. No supports   Pledges are very simple, and is boiled down to 2 types of pledges:
      1. Personal use - Get the core set + all stretch goals in the stl format. Ready to download right after the end of the campaign. Personal use only. Print ‘n’ Play.
      2. Merchant License - All of the above, but including a Merchant license, allowing you to sell physical copies of these models in your shop.
      This Kickstarter is the first of many more campaigns to come from Fleshcraft Studio! Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram so you can be a part of this growing community!
      When pledging to this campaign, you will receive the core set.
              The core set contains the following:
        5 x Unique modelled cavalry units on their trusty steed.   Geist Hunters in life, now cursed to eternally hunt the living on their ethereal mount.   All models come with a customized 60x35mm oval base
       
       
      5 x Unique modelled Infantry units with lethal finger claws.
      Dangerous criminals hidden away from society in the deepest dungeons, these crooks were sentenced to never see daylight again, yet, the Great Rot managed to find a way down to them. After succumbing to the Rot, these criminals are now bloodthirsty revenants seeking out to ravage anything in their way!
       All models come with a customized 32mm round base
