Add-on Wednesday is here!
It’s a double-update for you today since a) we’re close to breaking the initial number of backers that the original Kings of War campaign generated, and b) it’s Add-on Wednesday!
So let’s tackle that backer number first shall we?
BONUS 1569 Backers - Kickstarter Exclusive "Map of Mantica" and Poster
1568 people backed the project making the original Kings of War campaign in 2012 a roaring success. In just 5 days we’ve nearly matched that, so it’s only right we celebrate!
One of the great goals in the original campaign was a lithoprint of the Mantic Map.
In an act of nostalgia, when we break the 1568 mark, we will enhance the Kings of War Map of Mantica to a whole new level of detail. We will then print a limited Kickstarter-only commemorative run of this brand new Map of Mantica and add it free in every pledge of Living Legend ($50) and up.
The reverse side of the map will be a poster featuring the new Kings of War 2nd Edition artwork.
We think this great looking piece of art will look great up on the wall, and really celebrates this milestone with something very fitting.
Welcome to the first Add-on Wednesday!
For those of you who don’t know, every Wednesday during a Kickstarter we release a crop of great value extras we think you might want to add on to your pledge. It might be gameplay aids or some hobby bits and pieces – these are things that don’t need funding but can get you extra value from the campaign.
And if there’s nothing that takes your fancy, well there’s always next time.
So here's what we have got on offer today…
NEW! Army Dice - $10 for 10 custom engraved Army Dice
We’ve got 9 different sets of dice with specially engraved army logos on the “6”
That’s right, there’s a set each for Abyssal Dwarfs, Basilea, Dwarfs, Elves, Forces of the Abyss, Goblins, Ogres, Orcs and Undead. Let us know your preference on colours in the comments!
NEW! Battle Dice - $5 for 50 Dice
For Kings of War, you need a lot of six-sided dice – whole handfuls of them! This add-on is there just to get you lots of plain simple white dice, for a great value-for-money price. Can’t argue with that, can ya?
NEW! Kings of War Army Painter Paint Set - $25
All of the classic colours (and a brush!) to get you started painting your Starter Armies.
NEW! Movement Trays
Ah yes, movement trays. Our friends over at Warbases have got a fantastic range of MDF movement trays for your armies.
As every army has a different mix of miniatures with 20mm, 25mm, 40mm and even 50mm based miniatures - which can be configured in different ways - we've simplified how you choose your movement trays.
Below are 3 easy bundles so you can get the trays you want for your armies:
For example, if I have an Undead army, I might choose:
- 2 Horde Trays for the 40 Skeletons and 40 Zombies.
- 2 Regiment Trays for the 20 Ghouls and 20 Revenants.
- 2 Troop Trays for the 10 Wraiths and 3 Werewolves.
Alternatively, I might decide to use the two spare Troops Trays with the 20 Ghouls, giving me a second Regiment tray to split the Skeletons and run them as units of 20. Total flexibility!
To clarify the descriptions:
- Troops - 10 Infantry, 5 Cavalry or 3 Large Infantry
- Regiments - 20 Infantry, 10 Cavalry or 6 Large Infantry
- Hordes - 40 Infantry, 20 Cavalry or 12 Large Infantry
For a list of base sizes for each of the units available so far, click here.
You don't need to make your choices until after the Kickstarter has finished - if you are unsure on what trays you need for your army, don't panic. You can always add them on later and we'll be happy to help you work out what you need.
Pledging and selecting Optional Add-ons
To get an Optional Add-on, click “Manage my Pledge” in the top right corner of the Kickstarter page and input the total value of everything you want. For example, if you’re at God of War ($150) and want an Abyssal Starter Army ($50), you would enter $200 as your total pledge.
When the campaign has finished, we will send you access to an automated Pledge Manager. On here you will input your choices and let us know what you would like for your pledge.
We’ve introduced the new $1 Adventurer pledge level.
This pledge level is to make a clearer step-on for people who only just want the add-ons, whether that’s the exclusive Blaine on Gramakh or just an army.
Please help us spread the word and we'll be back very shortly with a new stretch goal...
