El Capitan unlocked. The final (yes, definitely final) Stretch Goals

Dear backers,

Wow! Just wow! We have Diego 'El Captain' Montoya

Diego was born in the year 1622, which makes him 44 years old. He’s a seasoned soldier and a veteran of many battles. Beginning his military career at a young age as a camp follower, at the age of 17 he joined the ranks of the famous Gran Tercio Viejo de Nápoles as a musketeer. He fought in many battles and sieges, from Thionville (learning the ropes of the art of war when he was just 17 years old) to the battle at the dunes of Dunkirk, where he was taken prisoner. By the time of the bloodbath at Rocroi he has attained the rank of corporal. It was then that his tercio got the nickname “El Sangriento” - “The Bloody”. Diego was heavily wounded, but survived. He had many opportunities for a promotion since then, but his brashness and noncompliance always got in the way.  

Diego is a wetwork man. Poor, but straight. His life is cheap, so the wealthy use him for low-key assignments. If thing go wrong, he can be easily abandoned. El Capitan is a nickname - he never attained a rank above corporal (cabo).

To not let him be alone please unlock El Baratero too ;)

Ok, this is crazy day when everything is possible and it deserves a crazy SG or even two.

Catalina de Tortosa

Catalina is next member of Spanish faction

and Basilisk!

Vienna has a legend about foul basilisk living in a sewers at Schönlaterngasse. The original one was killed in 1212, but apparently he managed to lay an egg ;) Now second basilisk is free and ready to roam the city. Picture You can see is not our own drawing, but original 17th cent etching of a basilisk. Basilisks were also called cocatrice, but it was in fact the same creature. You can also see basilisk head in the hands of our Gerard mini.

Please have in mind that campaign in Poland will last 3 more hours than at KS, so a lot of things may happen... 

If this SG will not be unlocked we'll add them in pledge manager.

      A basilisk is a cockatrice without wings - it has lived in a well of the house Schönlaterngasse Nr 7 in Vienna - according to a well known Viennese legend.
