Have a question?
Hey everything is great! I seemed to have gotten duplicates of one team. I received the british, french and I think portuguese? I got 2 of the same spanish card and an extra set of portuguese cards. Not sure I am new to gaming so will get it sorted out lol. Once this game is sold retail I can always go and get what I am missing and add new teams as you produce them. But thanks so much for the delivery and I really enjoy the models.
I have replied privately to the email address given on your Kickstarter details David
Thanks for letting us know
Still nothing here in Derbyshire... only about 10miles from Forager HQ! :-(
Hi Team Forager,
My stuff arrived today, but I’m missing Diego Ojeda?
Mine has just arrived. Firstly let me say that I'm happy with the models and the contents, so please accept the following as minor constructive feedback
1 - Just an observation - I got two El Cuchillo cards
2 - The two Portuguese soldiers Tomas Pinto and Nuno Lopes are very similar, hard to tell apart
3 - Whilst the quality of the cardstock is excellent, I find the choice of fonts and colours a little disappointing. Whilst perfectly serviceable, the text looks blurry, some appearing to be overprinted with a different colour. It is also inconsistent across the cards with the Spanish being the poorest.
My parcel arrived in the UK today. I’d completely forgotten about it, so great surprise!
Those cards - wow! I’ve never seen such robust ones - they put my credit card to shame ;-)
Likewise, packet received in the UK. I'd forgotten that these were due to be sent so it was a very pleasant surprise. The figures are really good, looking forward to painting them.
Nigel, I got mine today in London UK, so yes you should be.
How is the UK shipping going - should I be waiting by the letterbox in anticipation?
Sorry not looked here for a while. El Chuchillo was the KS exclusive figure so no one else gets her. The Spanish command is 6 figures Officer, NCO, 4 rank and file so to speak, as not everyone did the KS. In essence if you did the KS you will get 7 Spanish guerilla figures you can use. If you buy the Spanish command retail you get 6 figures but no El Chuchillo.
The display at Robin showed 6 Spanish figures in addition to the one that arrived in Wave 1. I had thought that the stretch goals added 5 figures to the Spanish Command to give a total of 6. Has that changed?
Hi we have a forum if you search Stand to Games forum it should come up. Your question is a very good one a blunders and Shotgun should be on a six and a volley gun one use only
What’s the best place to ask rules questions? Is there an official forum somewhere?
Question: What score is required to reload a blunderbus, shotgun, or volley Gun... or are they too complicated be reloaded during a game?
Thanks - received today. Looking forward to getting the cards
Rules arrived today in New Zealand . Can’t wait to get stuck into them.
Entry made awaiting mods
Will you put up a boardgamegeek entry? Cheers
Rules arrived in Denmark today!! Spiffy!!!
Got mine today in Michigan, USA!
Still waiting here in Denmark. Hope it arrives shortly!
The rulebook is clear and easy to read but the only demo game example I’ve found online has really bad sound quality. Any chance we might get a better learn to play video soon?
Mine arrived today, in the Midwest USA. I got the rules and both British and French miniatures. Everything is very well done! The rule book is designed so that everything is written in short segments and lots of blank space helps keep sections apart, which makes for an easy read and makes it easier to find particular sections. The miniatures are nicely sculpted and are solid an clean. None hand any bent weaponry etc. and there was very little mold line or flash to clean up. Bravo!
Still waiting for my rule set in New Zealand. Anyone else here received there’s yet?
Just received my French and British commands and the rule book today! Cant wait to get the Portuguese and the other stuff. Very nice book and miniatures. I am well pleased with this kickstarter!
Recieved the package today in IL U.S.A. Today. Looks good looking forward to painting the miniatures. Should have the time since freezing here. The rule book is very nice being spiral bound is a big plus. No need to go to kinko's to get it done. Glad the book has colored pictures can use them a a color guide not to familiar with the proper napoleonic uniform colors.
Still haven't recieved the package, but the danish mail is abysmal anyways so it may arrive in a few days :)
Please see KS update 23 about the cards, they will be shipped with the Stretch goals in the next month or so.
I also thought we were supposed to get character cards.
Got my book in California today! Happy New Year!!!
I live in Indiana and am waiting patiently. I enjoyed the kickstarter and look forward to seeing the models. I loved the patches on the pants and the character of each. I havent read the rules yet but will enjoy painting and playimg with my firends.
Guys all the overseas pledges got shipped 20th Dec taking into account the Christmas and New Year delays I would not get concerned until next week at least. Please would you post here if you are outside the UK and you have received your pledge so others can see that your country is being delivered to. Cheers Quinton
Still waiting for the parcel to arrive in Australia?! Do you send us tracking numbers?
I think they said some would ship with wave 2. Yeah I am excited I do hope I didnt screw up my survey and they know how much I pledged so that I get the extras I paid for lol
Were we supposed to get character cards?
Mine arrived today. Looks great. Looking forward to playing
I am still waiting for mine. Excited tonget it though. Thimgs from Europe take timw to get to Indiana but I am excited!
Minor points and too late now
I think there is too much space between the two lines of the weapon description (where applicable). For example too much vertical space between 'Smoothbore musket' and 'and Bayonet'
Also capitalisation is a bit duff on the British cards - why isn't 'musket' capitalised?
I’d rather pay a little extra for postage to keep the next books use this paper. So much better and I love the wire bound book. Again I’d love you to keep this idea too. So much easier to use on the table top.
Arrived yesterday (Surrey)...isn't the book lovely!!! Love the quality of yhe paper. Saving it for some holiday reading while I'm visiting family over xmas.
@Stand to Games
As for shipping being twice what you expected. I was charged £5.00, the Royal Mail frank on the envelope is £2.90. There are other costs but I think what I paid more than covered the costs that my package incurred.
Can’t imagine how you ever thought shipping would be £1.45?
@Stand to Games
When you ask about sticking to this weight of paper going forward, do you mean for Forager or for other rulebooks/kickstarters you might do.
Personally I like the thickness of paper but I think it works well because it is a short set of rules. Were to use it on more hefty rulesets then the book may become too big.
But had you used thin paper on Forager it would have looked a bit skinny and may have prompted responses of ‘is that it?”
So I think it was the right choice for Forager.
Hi Steve Large
Yes Butchers Bill Markers are available retail, I just added them to the facebook page simply email email@example.com if you want some and we will sort through paypal.
Thanks all for the kind words.
We do like the paper used, its 250 gsm, the cover is 300 gsm card so yes the internal pages are almost card stock for robustness. The downside though was the shipping it was double what we expected however we took that hit. This does lead to a question.............
Should we stick with this weight of rulebook going forward and have the increased shipping costs or reduce it to make shipping cheaper for all ?
Arrived today in good condition. I'm very intrigued with the backer list, my name appears twice; or there's another me out there.
Thanks boys, packaged arrived safe and well in god own county. Now just got to get to grips with painting them up. Looking forward to reading the rule book
What size bases are you going to use. 25mm (1 inch) round look best to me. Could use 2p coins - metal and cheaper than MDF!
Arrived today - was a little concerned when I saw that the packaging was just a jiffy bag and the figures just packed together in a plastic bag. Expecting the corners of the rulebook to be bashed but all was good. Also the figures don't seem to suffered any damage from being packed together.
Impressed with the quality of the book - like that it is ring bound so stays flat open and that the pages are so thick they are practically card stock. The figures all look good but will know for sure when I hit them with some primer. But looking very promising so far.
Arrived today. Very nice figures. Already based and under coated! Wish I had added the markers to my pledge. Will they be available retail?
Got it. Very happy with the quality. Mrs doesn't know that there is anything to grab and wrap!
Arrived today. Very nice rule book.
Great idea the ring binding.
Alas Mrs grabbed it and wrapped it.
Arrived today. Top work guys. Glad I backed the project. Looking forward to playing a few games in the new year
