Can you sculpt Nastanza in a shooting pose!?
Will Nastanza be available to buy separately?
An chance for a pistol option to replace the knife?
For Strike team pledges and above (provided with a 5th free starter set) do you anticipate providing the option to trade that free starter for credit, for example to get another 2 battlezones or purchase other add-ons? I'm just comparing the $50 price tags and thinking I could make use of more terrain pieces more than additional figures. Apologies if the question has already been raised elsewhere or if it is too early to consider. Thanks for a great KS!
Hey guys! As before, to keep the pages clear and easy for people to follow, could you send any shipping questions to us as a message? That way we can answer your specific query without crowding the comments page :)
@James - Jake's now given us the rules and Curis (our resident graphic design ninja) is laying them out as we speak! They'll be up as soon as they're ready, definitely by the end of the week but hopefully sooner :)
Great update, looking forward to locking in more figures and terrain sprues!
@Kenn, I wouldn't worry too much, we're still 10 days away. We'll meet all these stretch goals and then some easily.
Now Simmonds is in for Plague and Recon Unit N32-19 is in for the Enforcers.
Why not finsih the 4 factionsand make one special character for Marauders and Reps, instead of making a whole lot of stuff for the expansion pack and leave 2 factions unboosted?
I love the stuff we get, but a cant help thinking, that Rep and Mara players will feel a little disappointed?
Make the 2 other special characters and THEN make the boost to the expansion factions please. That would only be fair to all 4 core factions.
By the way, thank you for this game, i cant wait to get my hands on it :)
@mantic: any news on beta rules?
@Mantic Well More Terrain for me then!
i am really really excited about seeing solo play options lets get funding!
To help us get to the next stretch goal what about adding a purchase only add-on merc like the Chovar and the Helfather? :)
I'm in Canada, so I have to pay the $5 shipping fee for Strike Team. Which is awesome, by the way. Equivalent Kickstarters always seem to want to charge me 20 or 30 bucks.
Say I pick Asterions for my free fifth faction, and get at least $20 worth of add-ons. Do I have to pay anything further for shipping?
So do we have to as International backers (Australia) have to pay the second shipping option of $10 for the expanded universe faction bundle that is due after the main release still (I've added a $95 battlezone add on) or is that considered free shipping if we've added a total of $20+ in add ons to the base pledge level (Strike Team for myself)?
Nice! Thanks, I cant wait.
@ Brian - the Asterian Cyphers in the concept art aren't posed. Either our artist will draw some posed variants, or the sculptors take the static concepts and poses them :)
@ Philip - with the proviso that you're in the UK or USA, yep. That's what it says.
@ David- "you have selected less than $20 worth of add-ons (this applies to all add-ons listed)."
Shipment 1 and 2 add-ons.
This is so ridiculously suite! Nastanza - I love her and what she represents. Not cold-blooded killing capability (at least not solely based on that), but powerful character models in a skirmish level game.
Great update. So glad I'm on board (takes the sting out of missing KoW on KS and having to play catch-up). Next ten days are gonna be exciting; next seven months....excruciating!
You guys are awesome. Great updates - I love being able to see the next couple rewards every time one is unlocked - so much value!! I cannot wait to get my hands on all these amazing models and scenery!!!
Hmmm thanks for informing us.
@Mantic: Any possibility of a crouching Cypher or posed in a back against the wall stance rifle high? I think the Cyphers as they currently stand (flux rifles) are too cookie cutter. Are there alternate poses in the works? P.S. Your latest update rocks!
@david and philip
Thats how it reads so thats how im taking it!
Awesome! Like all the shiny goodness we've got coming our way! A big shout out for Nastanza, and hope we see more like that one in our near future.
I'm with David. If I put at least $20 of add ons, I have no additional shipping fees for anything, even if I order the FF or Asterians?
David any add ons :)
At least make one of the Cyphers left handed....Is there any model yet who is left handed ?
Wasn't confused about 2nd shipping before, but am now. So, this $20 of add-ons to get free shipping for shipment 2, does this have to come from shipment 2 add-ons or any add-ons?
Does Brokr having heat hammers in here suggest that they will also be getting heat hammers added in warpath. Or will there still be the option not to have them?
I would not disagree with that.
Come on mantic give us some fast scout vehicles. :) or light armoured walkers :) I'm going mercs all the way but I like the astrians so will prob add $50 to my strike 150 to buy some extras at the end and to qualify for free astrians worse case scenario I will have a huge merc force :)
that's what i hope ^^
That is a lot of stuff to shoot for, awesome stuff at that! This should really help bring the EU factions into line with the starter four!
thats true, can only agree
I doubt the new one stands any chance on winning that vote.
@Mantic - If the Cyphers will be 3-d sculpted, and if that translates into them all having varied poses like the dynamic Enforcer faction, you should say so - it will boost sales if people know they're not going to get 5 identically posed Cyphers with a gun swap (as the current concept art would lead you to believe).
There is literally not one single thing I don't love about this kickstarter!
Great update fellas :D
@mantic could you sell a beta playing field in your shop?
really thinking about buying some Enforcers and marauders to test the rules when i have some money (again) in July/august ^^
That is awesome news indeed, I'm going to spend my extra $10 on Captain Jellyfish. I like the look of the Teraton art with the helmetted head. If that makes it in, are the other big figures like the Enforcer captains and 1st generation plague going to have alternate heads as well?
@mantic could you make a vote on the Enforcer captain (old warpath versus new) and/or mold the old one in plastic?
Thinking about it the cyphers are a bit disappointing, 3 more of something we've got already isn't much to write home about. Everything else is pretty awesome though- just hope that in the next expansion SG for the asterians we get something a little more unique.
Oh and just to reiterate- Beardless Brokkr for the win!
Ok, and how about $600.000 - Reworked captain grumpy pants?
Other than that, outstanding work! And I have 10 bucks to spend on more stuff!
SO MANY FREE MODELS. You are spoiling us, Mantic! This is ridiculous!
I was not impressed with the brokkrs (not my cup of tea)
and i was hoping for more on the Asterian front than a weapon plattform we already know (just with different upgrades) and the same Cypher with just different weapons.
But i'am really thinking about a 3rd Nastanza
@Mantic As Brokkrs can be taken on mass in Warpath (unlike the Forge Guard) will you be returning to them later in hard plastic for Warpath or are these miniatures it (in which case a few of us will need an add on, hint, hint)?
I can haz Nastanza? I need moar evil for my evil evil!
Incredible update! If this doesn't get the total rocketing along I don't know what will.
Now I need to decide whether to keep my EU bundle and double up on a faction (probably enforcers) or put $15 into other add ons and not bother doubling one up. Essentially $15 for 2x enforcer faction is very tempting!
I like the Brokkrs - especialy those at the sides and the Astarian weapon drone in addition to Nastanza. Remember that this is only concept art - some can improve with the transition to miniature form
Fantastic update! Please, please, please include the Brokkrs as an add on. I need them way more than the Forge Guard, so 3 will not be enough.
Please make her exactly like that, she looks perfect! ( obviously holding the rifle with one arm),
About the inferno drill, it should be able to destroy terrain if you focus fire for a few turns or something, is a freaking inferno drill!
Like the Shield generators and light fast support weapons for the Asterians, fast and tricky playing is what i expect from Asterians.
Also thanks for the $20 add-ons free second shipment thing, works as a incentive for us to buy more stuff ;)
I agree, I LOVE Nastanza. If that remains her pose, I'll have to pick a second of her up to convert into Dreadball as an MVP.
not too impressed with the new Asterian/FF units but i love Nastanza.
