The Big Wave 1.5 Update - All the Details plus Hot Pics of Production Plastic Minis! A Second Chance to Get Colonel Scafford!
Hello Brimstone Gang!
Summer has flown by and Fall is upon us. We have been working late nights and weekends to make the new expansion material awesome and get as much stuff as possible completed in time to be included in Wave 1.5.
What is Wave 1.5
Before we start talking details about Wave 1.5, let's be sure that everyone knows what Wave 1.5 is about. During the Pledge Manager, we offered an option for Kickstarter Backers to purchase an extra shipping wave (Wave 1.5) between Wave 1 (the actual Core Game Sets, KS Exclusive Outlaw, Paint Sets) and Wave 2 (Everything else, once every last bit is completed - currently estimated to ship in Fall 2016). Wave 1.5 is not part of the shipping plan discussed during the Kickstarter Campaign and will be sent from within the USA.
After overwhelming requests from Backers, we decided to make this option available again. Backers can purchase the optional Shipping Wave 1.5 in our Official Flying Frog Web Store now! While you're there, we have also re-opened the option to purchase Legendary Scafford Gang Leader, Colonel Scafford - because he will be packaged with the Scafford Gang in the same box when they hit retail stores next year. You can find more on Colonel Scafford later in the update.
Wave 1.5 Updated Contents
We put together a huge list of items to be included in Wave 1.5. But, there are more miniature sets that are very close to completion. By pushing back our Wave 1.5 shipping date to start in December, we will be able to include a lot more stuff, including the Lord of Cynder, Scourge of Worlds, Last of the Shadow Kings... BELI'AL!
See below for our updated list of Wave 1.5 items. Please note that a lot of these items are coming in hot and it is still possible that one or more may fall through. This update is filled with images showing actual production plastic models from Wave 1.5! Our current estimate for contents of Wave 1.5 should include:
- Caverns of Cynder OtherWorld Expansion (including Lava Men)
- Frontier Town Expansion (including Bandits)
- Scourge Rats (including Rat's Nest as a free bonus)
- Serpentmen Warriors
- Serpentmen Shaman
- Void Sorcerers (was just a single Sorcerer in the KS, but we are including extra 2 Void Sorcerers as a free bonus)
- Void Hounds
- Undead Outlaw Gang
- The Undead Gunslinger
- Trederran Raiders
- Targa Pylons
- XL Dark Stone Hydra
- Scafford Gang
- XXL Beli'al
- Dead Man's Bounty Game Supplement
- Treasures of the Void Game Supplement
- Badlands Expedition Game Supplement
- Prospector Hero Class - with Male and Female Miniatures
- Orphan Hero Class - with Male and Female Miniatures
- Drifter Hero Class - with Male and Female Miniatures
- Outlaw Hero Miniatures - Male and Female
- Doorways Into Darkness Set - including Into the Darkness Card Set as a Free Bonus (Minecart or Add-on)
- XXL Burrower (Minecart or Add-on)

Minecart Backers are receiving the Scafford Gang Leader, Colonel Scafford. Some non-Minecart Backers purchased Colonel Scafford from the Add-ons menu. But many Backers are not currently receiving Colonel Scafford. He will be sold together with the Scafford Gang as a Deluxe Enemy Pack when they hit retail stores next year. We suspect that upon opening your Wave 1.5 and checking out all of the cool new expansion material, those who did not get Colonel Scafford, will want him. To stay ahead of the flood of inquiries about how to get Colonel Scafford, we are making him available to Backers again for a limited time in the Official Web Store for $10. If you purchase him with Wave 1.5, he will be included in your Wave 1.5 shipment.
Adding the Optional Wave 1.5
We have just added the optional Shipping Wave 1.5 to the Official Flying Frog Web Store. There are two options - US Address and Non-US Address. Be sure to select only the correct option for you. When you make the Web Store purchase of Wave 1.5, be sure to list in the notes the following information:
- Your Name and Email Address as it appears in the Kickstarter Records
- Your Current Address
- List any additional Pledges purchased in the Pledge Manager
Your Wave 1.5 Shipping purchase will include the available items for ALL of your pledges under a single Kickstarter Account (so if you purchased an Extra Outlaw Pledge in the Pledge Manager, you will receive the 1.5 items for both pledges). If you pledged in the Kickstarter under multiple accounts, you will need to purchase a Wave 1.5 Shipping for each account.
One topic that we know is on the minds of many non-US Backers interested in Wave 1.5 Shipping, is what will be the declared value of Wave 1.5. Because much of the contents are stretch goal rewards, we are planning to list a value way below the estimated retail value.
For an Outlaw Backer, we plan to list $50 value. For a Minecart Backer, we plan to list $75 value.
Well, that's it for now. This Wave 1.5 shipping will be a lot of work, but we are very excited to get more Brimstoney goodness into the hands of our faithful backers! Thanks again to all of you who have believed in and supported this project. It is an XXL-sized demon monster that we have to wrangle every day, but when we hear from you guys at conventions or in email about how much fun your game groups and families are having adventuring into the mines and beyond, it makes it all worth it!
