Update # 3 Belegast the Bloodthirsty and House Keeping redux

Posted by tre manor (Creator)


   Hello all,

   Well despite hours of preparation I apparently had very little grasp of how to run a kickstarter properly. This resulted in the delay of the first stretch goal and a botched realization of it. The intent was to fund the war staff high enough to add the figures into the unit pack without having to adjust the unit deal price. The intent coupled with a little bit of math error created a goal level that worked against it's original intent. Also the lack of forethought as to how the pledge editor works did not make it any easier. 

  I wanted to adjust the descriptions of the pledge levels to reflect the contents of the pledge reward as it developed but once a pledge is backed it apparently cannot be edited. The best way I can think of to work with this limitation is to make all future additions to the project work with the current contributory levels and be sure to make any new contributory levels work with all current and future project additions or to at the very least be sure that the both the description of the pledge reward and the corresponding project match.

   To this end I am lowering the Stretch Goal for the Gynnade Krigare War Staff to $12,000 in the hope that by getting to it faster I can then further expand the contributory levels and move on to expand the scope of the Kickstarter in general.

  Further I am adding the Belegast the Bloodthirsty to the current reward pool. I have already had this figure retooled as it was the test for the process and had the intention of using it somewhere as a reward, I just was not sure where. So, now this figure is available as a reward option for the Enda and Tva and Tre pledge levels. As new character figures are funded they too will become available as rewards for this option.

    For now though behold Belegast the Bloodthirsty!!!

    Cheers!

Update #2 House keeping

Posted by tre manor (Creator)


  Ah! Proper Wording can be tricky! The new Pledge level " Battle Party " refers to 2 units. Each Unit is described as it is updated. But the only units eligible for this pledge level are the units which have successfully funded. So for now only the Gynnade Krigare are eligible for choice as the reward for this pledge level. Further the description of the unit can change as stretch goals are reached. 

  For Example: As of now 1 Gynnade Krigare unit consists of 15 modular kits ( this includes 3 sets of 5 bodies ( 15 total ) fitted for universally interchangeable Head / helms, 3 sprues of right hands with weapons ( 1 sword, 2 axes, and 2 maces ) and 3 sprues of left hands with weapons ( 1 sword, 1 dagger, 1 axe, 1 mace, and 1 hammer ), 15 left hands with shields, 3 closed face helm option sprues, 3 open faced helm option sprues ( 30 options total. ). 

   However if the first stretch goal is reached this will then be added to with one Champion, one Standard Bearer, and one Horn Bearer. Bringing the total number of figures in the unit to 18.

   So 2 units of the Gynnade Krigare would include 30 figures right now and 36 figures after the first stretch goal is reached.

SUCCESS!!! Now for Stretch Goal #1........

  Well WOW! I honestly did not expect this kind of success! Thank you all so very much for contributing to this effort. This means that the Gynnade Krigare are now set for production and will be en route to the mold maker by Friday. Hopefully this will also mean that I should have test castings of these parts within the next couple of weeks. 

Now that the first set is funded I would like to introduce the first stretch goal. This goal is to fund the production of the Gynnade Krigare War Staff. Included in the War Staff set are three non modular models cast in the same resin plastic hybrid as the Gynnade Krigare. These models are a Champion, a Horn Bearer, and a Standard Bearer.



If we reach the stretch goal of $15,000 then the War Staff will be included in every " Tredje " level Pledge. So this will mean that IF the first stretch goal is successful all Tredje level pledges will include 15 bodies fitted for universally interchangeable Head / helms, 3 sprues of right hands with weapons ( 1 sword, 2 axes, and 2 maces ) and 3 sprues of left hands with weapons ( 1 sword, 1 dagger, 1 axe, 1 mace, and 1 hammer ), 15 left hands with shields, 3 closed face helm option sprues, 3 open faced helm option sprues ( 30 options total. ), 1 Champion, 1 Horn Bearer, and 1 Standard Bearer for a total of 18 figures. After the kickstarter this will be a $75.00 set.

The War Staff can also be purchased individually by selecting the " Hero Set " pledge option.

Pictured below are the concept art for the Gynnade Kriagre Champion, Horn Bearer and Standard Bearer. These designs are subject to change as need to insure ideal production, but I don't think that there will eb any need to make any changes. I hope you will like them! 

  I apologize that this update took so long to post. Truth be told my head is swimming from how quickly the funding goal was reached!

 Cheers Guys!
