      The Wartoads are NOT molded on the 50mm round bases. We will be providing the bases (warhammer style) separately.

      Where will the EU pledges be shipping from?

      Are the Wartoad Calvary molded to the 50mm rounds bases? If not it would it be possible to rank them up on 25x50mm rectangular bases?

      Thanks!

      We will be supplying all miniatures from this project with round bases. BUT we will also be allowing backers to SWITCH all their bases with square ones during the pledge manager.

      will there be square bases as well as round? I want to use them in 8th warhammer and need 20mm bases

      If things go really really well, we have some truly awesome stuff prepared. But (unlike other projects of ours perhaps), we will be happy if the project funds. :-)
      I wager you'll be pretty surprised at what may come along the way for this project :-D

      @Hudson
      What @Weresheep said. Note only it's "silver" level Stretch Goals, not "gold" level Stretch Goals.
      @David
      There's some spider chariots planned as a SG (we had also shown artwork of these), but things have to go pretty well to unlock that. Our main focus is funding the infantry kit(s) first, we mean to be honest about that. That's what we are cofunding after all, the rest goes without Shieldwolf's cofunding (i.e. backers will have to unlock those).

      I’ll rephrase that. I love the spider theme with these figures but I would love to more spiders (so I’m odd...) but what would be great would be goblins riding proper spiders, swarms of squig type spiders etc. Oddly I’m not feeling the toads

      Any chance of goblins riding believable spiders...please??

      No, $50 for two boxes (with 25 Goblins each) plus two shamen/leader minis and stretch goals ;)

    16. Hudson Adams on

      $50 for 25 figures? Is that what I'm seeing on this?

    17. Shieldwolf Miniatures 5-time creator on

      @Larabic
      We hear you on the main picture, certainly going to change.
      Command is a SG. Cooking pot you say? I'd Google "stew forest goblins: from our previous KS ;-)

    18. Larabic on

      Def need to change the main picture you can't see the Goblin! Most people are here for goblins not for frog things! Also should show an optional command, i would want them to match the unit they are with, you already have the champs done just need a banner and musician! You guys have any schemes to make unit fillers? Some kind of extra piece that can be added to give more theme and feel that can take places of a few models, a bonfire, spider shrine, or cooking pot full of bones or something?

    19. Shieldwolf Miniatures 5-time creator on

      @Deimos
      That's because initial feedback from our FaceBook page (and some other forums we monitor) was against our plan to have the bows held in the right hands, so we went ahead and sculpted them on the left instead. This created an additional issue since there were no bare right hands. So we sculpted and added these too.
      I see what you mean about the number of items, yes, we will make it more clear then :)

    20. Deimos Dit le Padré on

      Hello Shieldwolf! I notice that your "Box Content" is showing 5 left arms with bows, but on the box picture and the Pledge level picture, you have a goblin with a bow in his right hand. Also, because of the component lineup, it is not clear how many of each thing we are getting. 5 times those 4 goblins + 1 of that other model? 5 times which bows? all of them or just that first one? Maybe color background or lines around components to indicate more clearly what is what?

    21. Shieldwolf Miniatures 5-time creator on

      Hmmm... perhaps tomorrow morning, we are now debating if we shoudl drop a couple fo hand weapons in favor of a couple of shields. (with the rest coming back as a SG for additional goodies added to the sprues).
      Although we are happy people recognise the value for money the project is offering, we always listen :)

    22. Shieldwolf Miniatures 5-time creator on

      Thank you guys, we will revisit these issues and adding more images tonight (such as the add-on image which we didn't upload!).
      The Command sprue has deliberately not been added not only due to people saying they will be using Games' Workshops spider goblins pieces but also in order to keep the funding target low and doable.

      Ok, some feedback:
      -I am with 3DG on the intro-picture. It is not optimal, since you cannot properly see the Goblin (Title of this KS is "WiC: Goblins" not "WiC: Toads")

      -I would suggest, that you write 2-3 more sentences about the biggest benefit of this KS in the introduction: The Goblins are made of HIP and not this horrible wobbly board game plastic!!! A veteran tabletop-gamer knows the benefits and why the production of the molds is so damn expansive, but a tabletop-newcomer will just ask himself why you want so much money for a couple of board game minis.

      -In the category "pledge levels" you should briefly explain how backers can buy individual products (like the Brutgoth or the Wartoads) as add-ons, especially in conjunction with the Scout pledge-level, because a lot of people might just want to bolster their existing goblin armies instead of buying a new one.

      -The picture of the Scout PL also shows 6 goblins, but you don't get any miniatures on this PL. In order to avoid confusion, I suggest you remove the goblins and explain again, that this PL is perfect for buying individual stuff as add-ons.

      -Spotted a couple of spelling errors in the gold/silver stretch goal section

      Thats it for now. I wish you the best of luck!

    24. lone dirty dog on

      Over all I like the look of this but was a little surprised to see no sign of a hq or command unit ? Also will you being adding prices for individual add ons for the brutgoth ?

    25. Shieldwolf Miniatures 5-time creator on

      @3rd Dimension
      We find the renders of the heroes/characters too small ourselves, that's why we posted the Shaman below. We must enlarge them huh?
      Who else thinks Green render instead of Grey looks better?

      @Bill
      Thank you. The wartoads are a free SG for gold levels, yes. The Campaign army that's got 5 of them to start with will bump up to 10. And in the awesome scenario we reach 400 backers it's +1 for every pack of 5 (thus campaign armies will get 12 each).

    26. Bill Redford on

      So, the wartoads are a free stretch goal for gold levels?

    27. Bill Redford on

      I like the look of these. The campaign army looks really tempting.

      Hey Shieldwolf! I think your green renders shown other places (of, for example, the Master Archer and Master Spearman) look much better than the renders shown on this page. Could you go with the bigger green renders?
      Like this one, it is perfect:
      https://i.imgur.com/Jkqzqvx.jpg
      I also think you should change the main image for the campaign - maybe even use that one I just linked to, but you want the main image to show one of your best / most flattering views, and I think the one currently shown as the main image is one of your weaker images (does not even show the goblin's face, which look so good on the green renders).

The fuel driving us is to bring to life an entire new and unique range of fantasy (and sci-fi!) models, perfect for your wargames and roleplaying campaigns.

Shieldwolf Miniatures is the largest Southeast European tabletop wargaming company, with proven expertise in the creation and distribution of fantasy & sci-fi miniature figures. Our products are made with the highest quality Hard Plastic (HIP) and resin to assemble and paint. The production of our kits take place in the E.U., under our complete control.

This Kickstarter campaign seeks funds to release new and unique armies for our game, War is Coming.

These are representing items all included in the final product.

Risks and challenges

Shieldwolf Miniatures (TM) currently holds a 100% track record in regards to fulfilling Kickstarters with two under our belt totalling more than 100,000$ and 750+ backers.
Risks are mainly limited to grave misfortunes (knock wood!) and unforseen issues but otherwise we have twice proven our ability to successfully deliver what we promised!

We consider the main challenge to be in the over-extention of the project; we like challenges, we'll see how that goes. We have every confidence we will be up to the task due to the augmented passion we have when creating these new projects.
