Agreed. I'm at the Strike team level and I can't really go over. It's pretty disappointing seeing models get released as add-on only.
@Mantic, have to say I'm with Erico on this. These guys are great, but having to pay an extra $27 to have all of them included in the Strike Team really sucks.
Rebs Craw - Head Alt C or B please
For the Add-On PDF, can I request that it indicate if the item is already included in the various pledge levels?
This will help people like me to avoid adding on items that would already be in the $150 pledge level.
@Dustin E. Veesart & Mantic - Not alone! I also love the look of the human rebels and would like to see more of them. More poses, more options, equipment, specialists, etc.
Yes, please no beak! Big bird doesn't play DZ! Option A is good.
Not happy with this new streetch goal. Not because the stuff in it, but because the decision you made to enshort the goal, and not give the new things for free in the Strike Team level.
I want that enforcer with heavy weapon, as the winged reb, but i really expected only mercs do be added as "extras pay to get only" (or big miniatures, like the marauder).
Anyway, i like the concepts...
Great work on the Rebel Kraaw Specialist, leave the head that's in the main basic full drawing. I have to agree also that we need some more female models like the female rebel leader.
Hopping to see more women and female miniature?

As long as its not Alt. C then I'll take one, otherwise... Nah that beak really doesn't fit the model.
Sorry folks. I'm gonna have to vote for the serrated hornet jaw that comes on the full model. Not a fan of B or C at all.
@ Mantic - In the addon guide, you appear to have the accessory and connector sprue #s reversed.
Extra Sorok! My Dream SG :D
@ Mantic I might be in the minority here, but I love the look of the human rebel troopers. Anyway we can get more of those with different poses. I am all for aliens and whatnot but we need more humies in the rebel faction.
Absolutely love the new specialists. Hulk looks mean, the enforcer is awesome, awesomeness rev looks incredible (I prefer the original head, not any of the alts) and the new 3rd gen plague is super. Plus I'm loving the new sketches fir the plague (especially the new guy AND the guy with the knife)
I'm loving this, cannot wait for more
Nice update! Please keep them coming in pairs. Looking at the Reb specialist really liking the Alt B. Very alien, unlike any other I have seen. I would also like to+ for alternateheads for most faction (reallyno point for the enforcers. Hoping thatthe Enforcer Spec has both options (magnatized for versitility)
I'm using pose & sculpt interchangeably I guess--sculpt might be more exact of a term.
Is there any chance these additional models being added to the starter sets will be alternate poses?
Or, should we assume that all the models of the same type will be identically posed?
I would have been happier with specialists as free minis, but I'm greedy. I don't know if I can afford to add them to my pledge, but hopefully I can as the two I want look promising.
I also vote for alt head a. I gotta saw I am loving this project and cannot wait to see how it ends, to bad my wife and wallet may end up hating me for it. :)
I like the head thats on the Kraaw and Alt A. Not a fan of the overly avian one.
ps. I vote for the Kraaw Alt. A head- that looks by far the best in my opinion. (Assuming the mini isn't already sculpted of course- in which case who cares what I voted for ;) )
Dwarves & elves? Must-have but my wallet is protesting...
Ouch! I swore to myself I'd only add on a bit for extra scenery, but it looks like that's not gonna be everything! I love all the new additions so thank goodness it's my birthday in a couple of weeks (18 woooo) as I'm going to need some more money.
Keep it up mantic, you'll have me broke before the week is out. ;)
@Andrew and Nick - Mantic have announced that the next factions will be Forge Fathers (Space Dwarves) and Asterians (Space Elves commanding remote Robot units). Exactly when they're coming in the KS has not been stated, but I'm sure we'll be seeing them before it's over.
More factions are always good!
Dang I missed what the two new factions will be. Where was that announced?
Just a guess, but since the only other $12 add on is the 1st gen, I'd bet he's at least close to that size. There are some pics floating around that give an idea of the 1st gen's size, but I don't recall where.
Hmmm more factions is good or bad thing?
The beak head looks the best for the Rebs!
@Mantic will we be seeing any new commander models as Jake mentioned in his blog that it would also affect force composition if we opt to take one at all? also liking the new 3rd gen weapon mix, pose, and look!
I agree really think those 3rd generation heads look a little funny would prefer them more like the first or second gen.
I like the concept one and alt.A
Error 404. LOL
Can I get an idea of scale for the hulk? $12 makes him sound HUGE! :D
"Furthermore, we’ll be adding more freebies – both brand new and existing models to your pledges, as well as a few more Kickstarter Exclusives. There will be more mercs coming as well!"
@ Mantic - I'm sorry, guys. I really need to learn to look before I leap. This sounds excellent, and I'm excited for what's ahead.
@Mantic - One last comment. I have no complaint, and no argument that "everything should be free."
Having said that, I very much hope that Strike Team / Recon backers will be seeing more free, new unit sculpts in the future, however sporadically. Speaking only for myself, I appreciate the gesture of adding in duplicate figures, but it's not really my thing.
Nice specialists... but that means more money... oh no!
I really wish all these lesser gen plague guys were bald. But that's really a minor quibble.
great update Mantic , lovely figures and set at a good balance
@ Mantic - When alternate heads are posted in the sketches, should we take this to mean that it's worth "voting" for our favorite in these comments? Or have you guys already decided on a head (for the Kraaw and Marauder, in this case), and we're just wasting your time?
Also, would you consider doing a figures with 3rd Gen Plague heads more like those in the Lithograph art - Bald and more like the 1st and 2nd Gen's - for this or future releases?
* Alt C please!
* Love the new plage 3rd gen, specially with the hair, coat and pose.
* Orx solution is always a good slam, no matter where they are :P
* Incinerator looks amazing!
Regarding the Enforcer with Incinerator/Burst Laser weapon options. If we buy one model it has both options, or they are 2 models one with each weapon?
nice that you showed us the 2 SG in one go :)
This is a bit different from Dreadball. They were gonna have LOTS of different teams and you purchased the teams as add-ons. Here they have fewer yet deeper factions, so it was natural that the whole faction wasn't gonna be given to ya. I wonder if they'll make a different pledge level eventually though where they pretty much do give you EVERYTHING!! Might be something to explore.
Oh my aching wallet :(
Doesn't look like it. We knew that was gonna happen eventually. Not everything is gonna get crammed in.
@ Damien - yep.
@ Jason - yep.
That's what it says.
