Have a question?
I saw River Horse over at the UK Games Expo, their minis look awesome.
I am seriously very excited about this now.
@JR West - You so funny. I still have some KS over a year past due date.
You'll have to do that on Backerkit, if you use this link it should help: https://highlander.backerkit.com/backer/share
You may need to get a link sent to the e-mail you use for Kickstarter to retrieve it, but you should be able to get to the confirmation page for this project and edit your address there. Hope this helps :)
How do I go about changing my address for this Kickstarter?
Hope that this game moves along, Seems like forever since it was funded.
Thanks for keeping us updated, i dont usually like marble dice but these look great!
Thanks for the update, much appreciated.
Please keep communicating and keep us informed!
There's a quick update over on the left which will give you guys a little more info on where we stand with the project (it's going from approvals to print right now!)
It fell short of funding...
Terminator Genisys: Rise of the Resistance
Riverhorse, ALC, and Lynnvander all contributing(ALC and Lynnvander seemed to be handling that one the most tho, that's why it doesn't make sense anymore)
No one at Riverhorse has got 5 minutes to type a couple comments?
I can't even find their Terminator project. It disappeared....
Only 11 hours left to go on Terminator:Genisys:Rise of the Resistance, so hopefully Riverhorse will check in on this game soon.
Odd that since ALC and Lyynvander have been mostly handling that one, that Riverhorse doesn't have a few moments to "check in" with us...even if only to say nothing much to report.
Personally...I do not care for campaigns that go dormant on the communication front once they have our money, poor business ethics there.
I even tried to be patient while Riverhorse obviously has other boats in the water...but a quick appearance and or post would be appreciated by all the backers.
Been REALLY quiet over here lately. 😞
Agreed. As a professional courtesy, a check-in would be doing the bare minimum at this point given the last update was 6 weeks ago.
Looks like pre-orders are up on Miniature Market, Cool Stuff Inc. and a few sellers on Amazon.
@Creator - You are alive on Pacific Rim project. Why not here? What about a quick update to calm things down?
Has enough time gone past now to reasonably expect RH to check in at this point?
Let's give Riverhorse a little bit more time, they are probably busy with their project over on Terminator: Genisys Rise of the Resistance.
But yes, we could use an update on how this project is doing...
There can be only one!
Long overdue for an update.
Any way we could get the pretty box as well?
It would be great to know how the game is progressing.
The Highlander Kickstarter will include the Princes of the Universe expansion (this is essentially the extra cards and miniatures you have unlocked through stretch goals, but put in a pretty box!).
I'd guess that the Princes of the Universe expansion is probably some or all of the extra characters we're getting, as River Horse said that the 5 initial characters would be the base game and the rest would be expansion content later if I recall correctly
Hold on to your knickers the creator will pop back in to answer questions soon (UKtime) ~Z
Does this contain the Princes of the Universe Expansion that is for pre-order at FLGs?
When is the pledge manager deadline please?
How about Highlander: The Animated Series: The Boardgame..... sounds like a winner to me!
Seriously though, I can not wait for this!
Hi DMac, the shipping is not a mistake, The difference between untracked and tracked shipping options is the main reason we wanted to give our customers a choice - we understand that as a British company the shipping costs for tracked shipping are higher than would be expected for an American company, and we apologise for that shock.
I'm so glad to see a game based on one of my favorite movies of all time. Not sure if I'm more excited over highlander, darklight, lucidity, or the veil. +1 on confusing pledge mgr.
Are we sure that the US tracking shipping cost isn't a mistake? If you add it, when you get to the confirmation page it lists the price of the tracked shipping upgrade as "£15.00 (incl. shipping)" which seems to imply that £15.00 should be the new shipping price as opposed to an additional cost on top of £9.
Is the tracked shipping like it is with other GB companies I've dealt with? Expidited shipping via DHL?
Ok wow, I have to add my voice to the others. The order of questions is strange, and the tracked option shows it costs 0 GBP. The additional 15 doesn't appear until the Confirm page.
I was shocked at the jump from un-tracked to tracked. An extra 15GBP to add tracking? As a small business owner fairly familiar with shipping costs...this is very high and the layout of the backerkit does a poor job of communicating this.
have we heard how long the pledge manager is running for?
@Riverhorse; thank you for checking it. I completed the survey and look forward to receiving it. Hopefully, it won't get lost without tracking, but fingers crossed hasn't happened yet : )
I am looking at your pledge manager and it all seems to work out. You pledged £39, which covers the £29 pledge and £10 extra. When you choose Vasilek it will add £10 onto costs (which you have already paid), bring your balance up to 0, leaving you with just the shipping costs to pay. If you like you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can look into this closer.
@Creator; still no option to select Vasilek without being charged another 10 in gbp despite having added that amount onto my original pledge level....
The difference between untracked and tracked shipping options is the main reason we wanted to give our customers a choice - we understand that as a British company the shipping costs for tracked shipping are higher than would be expected for an American company, and we apologise for that shock.
So... tracked shipping is $20, as in $20 on top of the $12.50 for the actual shipping charges? So with tracking information, shipping to U.S. is $32.50? This seems ridiculous. Do shipping companies charge that much to track a package?
This is ridiculous and exceptionally confusing. The tracked shipping upgrade states £0, when selected it adds £15 to the total, this is in addition to the £9 shipping cost already on there, not in place of it??? how heavy is this game? Who is it being posted and tracked by?
Like others have stated, I also cannot justify paying this extra amount, it saddens me to have to leave off the tracking.
I am also confused by the Tracking price hike. Why does it say $0.00 for the add-on, but then charge you $15.00 at confirmation??
I remain excited for the game,but seriously? An additional $20 for a tracking number? The shipping rates, if accurate, will prevent me from taking part in any future River Horse Kickstarters...
The confusing/confused part of ordering from the US is that as an add-on you show Tracked Shipping as £0. And in the add-ons section of the total (where the delete button is) you still show £0. However it triggers a £15 charge which shows up in the Shipping Total for Add-Ons. Wow, I assumed £15 would be instead of the £9 rate for shipping, but it's actually added? This is the most expensive shipping from Europe I've encountered. I hate to not have tracking on a package, but I can't justify paying half the cost of the product in ship-tracking alone! If it gets lost I guess I'll just chalk it up to a painful learning exercise.
Man that shipping really sky rockets the price, nearly the same cost of the game.... but my love of Highlander and miniature painting is blind. With the final $120 price tag for a board game its time to go fluff the pillows on that basement couch... because in the end... there is no excuse in the world... none... where I'm winning this argument with my wife. Geek men and their toys lol
Hi Robert, glad you were able to sort it out. It should start without tracking - I'm not sure what was up in your case, if you have any further problems please don't hesitate to contact us on email@example.com
Ok so I figured it out, for the people who selected no on the tracking. Go back to your order and under the tracking info there's a box with a 1 in it, change it to a 0 and it takes of the tracking.
That would be awesome, but one I already paid so I don't care anymore. But the backer-kit I was sent only had two options, one to add the charater and one to add the tracking for 0.00. There was no removal option.
Hi Robert, If you remove the tracked shipping add-on from your shopping cart it is removed from your order.
Can I ask who you would be shipping to Canada with? Because Royal Mail usually has a tracking number anyway.
Shipping is almost as much as my pledge. sadly this is something I'll have to take into account for future Kickstarters
