Abyssal Golems are in - Final Stretch Goal Added

Well we hadn’t anticipated that – another stretch goal passed!

We cannot thank you all enough.

Abyssal Golems are in and a unit of 3 is now being included in all pledges of $175 and up. The Abyssal Golems are also now featured in the Buy One Get One Free!

With 12 hours of this epic journey left to go, we’ve got one last stretch goal remaining...

$289,999 - Ogre Hero
We will produce the Ogre Hero that has been the face of our project in plastic.
This is our final stretch goal, and one that brings us full circle to when we started with nothing but a simple plan and 3 sketches. Seems like an age ago!

The Ogre Hero means you can now build a complete Mantic Ogre army

Everyone who has pledged $100 or more will get a sprueless plastic Ogre hero included.

Everyone who has pledged $500 or more will get a modified limited Kickstarter edition version produced in high quality resin. You'll be in exclusive company with one of these.

This has been such an immense experience. We think $300,000 is achievable but we wanted to be sure that there was going to be a final reward in there to say thank you, and we think the Ogre hero is a fitting way to finish.

If we do break this goal, anything extra that is pledged will go towards the development of these kits and there are still a number we haven’t listed in this project, including Celestian Paladin Cavalry and the Goblin Mincer, that can be worked on as a result. It's also been suggested that we use anything extra to speed up the time we take producing all of the new stuff so you don't have to wait as long!

Thank you all once again – this last 12 hours promises to be very exciting and we can't wait to see where we finish. Please keep leaving us your comments and spreading the word.

      @Mantic's reply to the pm I sent them: "The heroes are the models from Eternal Warrior and Living Legend, making five new models :)"

    2. Creator mvi on June 24, 2012

      @Bolognesus: thanks mate. I agree that some clarification would be great. For example in the latest update, they say that the ogre "hero" comes in at the $100 level.

    3. Creator Bolognesus on June 24, 2012

      @mvime they're the one created from the crazy-expensive pledge levels. 3000 and up I'm sure; those at the 2500 not so much, just asked that question myself.
      Perhaps @mantic could clarify.

    4. Creator mvi on June 24, 2012

      @Jackson, @Bruno & @KevinR: Thanks guys. Which are the hero models. Are there any images posted either here on in Mantic's website? I've gone through all the updates again, but it's hard to say which ones are heroes or just cool elite figures.

    5. Creator KevinR on June 24, 2012

      @mvime -- the top of the Project Home has a fairly up-to-date list of the extra units added for $100, $175, and $225 total pledges.

    6. Creator Bruno Santos on June 24, 2012

      @mvime the difference is the inclusion of an elite army, which is made of plastic and metal so more expensive to produce.

    7. Creator Jackson Callinan on June 24, 2012

      @mvime different army choices mostly

    8. Creator mvi on June 24, 2012

      Hi guys, I'm a little lost with all the updates here. Could someone please detail what the differences between the $175 and $225 levels are now?

    9. Creator Darklord on June 24, 2012

      @Jackson Callinan, Mantic will send out a survey after the kickstarter ends to find out what extras everyone would like. Make sure you add the extra money before it ends though!

    10. Creator Kim Boisen on June 24, 2012

      Whatever you do with the golems, make sure to keep the huge hands, really gives it that automaton feel

      @anyone who has donated $175+ or has gotten extras,
      i recently donated $175 for the 1000 point army and some extras, and i was wondering where i put what i wanted

    13. Creator Kris P on June 24, 2012

      Thanks a lot Mantic, I would have preferred the Goblin Mincer or the Celestian Pali Cav over the Ogre Hero, but it does make sense to include him in the goals swing as he is the concept for the Ogres in general.
      $500 is a little steep for me too unfortunately, at least he'll still be included in $100+ pledges, even if only the generic version.
      The Golbin Mincer in particular would be great to see artwork for, and the Celestian Cavalry too (would they fly?).
      I would like to see they extra money go towards the Goblin Mincer, and then towards making these fantastic models quicker on the long term time frame.

    14. Creator HaWior on June 24, 2012

      Great! Thanks Mantic and sorry but to pledge to 500$ is then to much for me at the moment. :(

    15. Creator Kieran Billings on June 24, 2012

      Id like to see any extra money go into getting these things up and running as quick as possible. saying that Mantic all deserve holidays on a sunny beach somewhere for such an awesome kickstarter.

    16. Creator André on June 24, 2012

      Please use the money also for converting as much core units to plastic as possible!

    17. Creator cesareborgia on June 24, 2012

      Thanks Mantic for this kickstarter.

    18. Creator Darklord on June 24, 2012

      Good choice!

    19. Creator Kieran Billings on June 24, 2012

      Ogre Hero, That sounds very cool. Congrats Mantic on getting so much of a kickstarter. a quarter of a million is a hefty amount. Well done!!!

    21. Creator Wim D. on June 24, 2012

      +1 for the speed-up and thank you so much for the free ogre (been loving him from the start). In fact, thank you Mantic for this exciting, great value-for-money kickstarter project you let us be part of!

    22. Creator Jonathan Haythornthwaite on June 24, 2012
