After reading the comments on the Forums, Facebook and by E-mail we have revised our plan and are now getting ready for the launch.
This plan is more condensed than the previous version. We will be limiting our scope to the North, South, and CEF factions for good reasons:
1) We already have a bunch of the required 3D models made which will speed up the process to molds.
2) North, South, and CEF models can be used in any faction as allies and are the iconic factions of the game.
3) This allows us to place a reliable delivery date of November 2015.
We have also amended our plan to give stretch goal rewards to all Core Starter Set Backers.
We believe that being an early supporter should be encouraged so we are setting our reward levels so that the early Core Starter Set Backers will get their rewards shipped out in the first wave. Sign up for the Core Starter Set early to lock in your shipping order and watch as stretch goals bolster your forces!
The first goal of this Kickstarter is to fund the molds required to make a new two player starter set including 16 high quality plastic miniatures, with four different models from 2 factions. Our old two player starter kit only included 6 pewter miniatures and had a high price point due to the material costs. Plastic has a very high mold cost, but a low material cost, as Backers help us cover the mold costs we'll be able to put more into the start set. Further stretch goals would allow us to upgrade it and transform it into our desired plastic starter set of 46 miniatures, including a variety of eighteen different models from 4 factions and up to four players.
Reaching all our stretch goals will allow us to give our Backers even more, with 52 miniatures, twenty-four different models, for the cost of the Core Starter Set.
All unlocked models will also be available at a special price for this Kickstarter to all backers as add-ons for purchase.
The Kickstarter will be going live the week of October 20th and we look forward to your support.
