      So by the time we get to Onslaught 9 will we get a life-sized Cthulhu Wars? With an Azathoth roughly the size of several galaxies lumped together?

      That actually sounds quite cool. A statue with practical purposes is more like it! Onslaght 5 at the latest please! :D

      We could have a mega-big Cthulhu with doors in the stomach to store all the trays and with wheels in the sole of the paws. LOL

      I did not perceive you comments as such, so no worries there.

      Hmm, maybe you logged in after getting the receipt via mail and it has returned to english? You should contact petersen games about that to be safe.

      I have also ordered the german versions and my online receipt shows DE.

    7. Sascha Heib 1 day ago

      When logging in, my order summary says i ordered everything in english. My pledge receipt (via mail) says german / DE. Can i count on the email receipt or should i get in contact with Sandy?

      @Michael Pflug

      I think this is what you are looking for.

      After logging in, you can take a look to your Cthulhu Wars Pledge.

      You can also change your adress there

      Hey guys, is it still possible to log into OS3 Pledgemaster to see your recipe? Or is there any other way to see what exactly I pledged for, including all add ons in the pledge manager?

      Please no CW statues! The game already takes up a small room with all the expansions and onslaughts!

      Also "rudimentary" is not synonymous with "small".

      @Michel Godbout, read their update. Its a very complex model to make. E.g it takes time, and CMON can't make time go faster. They also said that they didn't anticipate such high demand for the mini so they will manufacture more moulds to speed up the process which in turn will get backers their mini faster than announced in the pledges.
      People usually don't do things out of spite or to be mean. There's generally a good explanation to why everything isn't exactly the way we want it to be. This is a good example of such an event.

    14. Michel Godbout 4 days ago

      Even though it is expensive, it is the kind of thing I might pledge for but I totally do not understand why the current offering for the huge pledge has an expected delivery in 2020. This to me is absurd. Just because you backed late is no reason for you to get your stuff in march 2020 instead of july 2019.

    15. Peter "Apple Head" Andersson

      I totally agree with you guys! The CW minis looks a lot better. But... 57 cm. I just can't resist. Even if it looks like a man in a costume with the baggy skin and strange skin flap over the shoulders.
      I sincerely hope that @PG will take on the challenge and produce something of similar size though.
      Regarding the wings, Lovecraft described them as "rudimentary" so the wings on the CMON figure is closer to what Lovecraft described than the CW mini.
      But who cares about accuracy when you've got as beautiful a mini as the CW Cthulhu.

      I went to my LFGS and saw Cthulhu Wars on the shelves. Damn it's big. And heavy. Exciting

      @Nicolas, I thought Hastur looked pretty cool (OS4, Dire Hastur?), but I completely agree on the rest. Cthulhu in both sizes looked a little fat, and the wings... don't get me started on those wings. Sandy sure makes great miniatures!

      I am not a fan of the design of the CMON Cthulhu figs I have to say... They do produce good games but that one, especially after CW is a bit of a hit and miss to me. Cthulhu Wars all the way for me! And the 57cm statue seems a bit pointless...

    21. Michel Godbout 6 days ago

      Thanks Peter
      Annnnnnnd pass! They keep adding figs with higher prices as time goes by when in fact production prices are probably less the more they make. Bloodsuckers!

      Sorry for the question but is the PM still open to add something? I am a german language backer so our games will be shipped a little later then the english ones...right?

      @Flo1983 - @ Flo1983 - Leider, nein, der Spenden-Manager ist gesperrt und Unterstützer können zu diesem Zeitpunkt keine Gegenstände zu ihren Versprechen hinzufügen. Dies liegt daran, dass die endgültigen Zahlen gezählt und an das Unternehmen gesendet wurden, damit sie wissen, wie viel Inventar zu produzieren ist. Wir haben zwar einen gewissen "Überdruck", aber wir warten, bis die Kickstarter-Unterstützer ihre Aufträge erfüllt haben, bevor sie auf unserer Website zum Verkauf angeboten werden. Ich ermutige Sie, sich für unseren Newsletter für die neuesten Updates anzumelden!

      **Unfortunately, no, the Pledge Manager is locked down and backers are unable to add items to their pledges at this time. This is because the final numbers were tallied and sent to the company so they would know how much inventory to manufacture. While we do have some 'overprint', we are waiting until Kickstarter backers have had their orders fulfilled before making it available for sale on our website. I encourage you to sign up for our newsletter for the latest updates!

      It irks me that both FFG and now CMON have Cthonians in their games, and Cthulhu Wars does not.

      So Cthulhu wars is loosing their status as having the largest Cthulhu 'mini'... Maybe pick up this challenge and make a bigger one! ;-)

      oooo. looks like petersen games is hiring a new sales rep! Info on their facebook page!

      Don't have facebook. So what is the deal?

      @Peter....geeeeeeezzz. I actually love the size but what cost are we looking like?

    33. Peter "Apple Head" Andersson

      I want to hear anyone from Petersen Games say "challenge accepted".

      Because even if I don't particularly like the sculpt I do love the size!

      @Rob Nice video!

    37. Fleabag on

      Thanks for the update! Keep up the good work. I will say I'm pretty disapointed to hear OS3 item will be sold tho. I'm not a fan of general public getting anything before backers, it's kinda not cool. Not a huge issue in the case of an event, and it does support Petersen games, which contiues to come out with wickedly awesome products!

    38. Missing avatar


      @Equivocal Second more production pictures they are great. Having missed OS2 and only having the core game all those figures are new to me. I did find this video if anyone else new to the expansions wants to see the box contents.…

      There are two sizes of every map - normal and oversized.

      •102cm x 51cm
      •This size is for 3, 4 and 5 players.
      •the Earth-map in this size is part of the core game

      •140cm x 70cm
      •This size is for 6, 7 and 8 players

      During the Onslaught 3 - Kickstarterproject they offered a special version of the Earth-map for 3, 4 and 5 players (oversized: 140cm x 70cm)

    40. Missing avatar

      Thomas Wimmer on

      You mean the normal map of the core game?

    41. Flo1983 on

      Can anyone tell me how big (size in cm) the gameboard for 5 players will be? (world map)

      Equivocal on

      I don't think I mind either way, to be honest. I'm not likely to start thinking PG has dropped off the face of the planet anytime soon, and they're probably not about to abandon CW. Would rather they spend their time on useful things than posting updates with no content in them.

      Would love more production photos tho. Those are awesome.

    43. Artem Holubiev on

      Well, just to summarize - I would prefer a regular "We are not there yet, nothing we can't handle" update than no updates at all.
      And I was looking at "Mythic Games" and "Rule & Make" (Hand of Fate: Ordeals) which can hardly be treated as a big retailers :)

      People have a tendency to read too much into things.

      Giving backers a glimpse into the production process is one of the most interesting parts of Kickstarter, in my opinion. But by doing so, the creators open themselves up to things like their estimates being taken as literal fact. China-ready does not mean "there will be exactly zero issues at any stage, and our estimate is not an estimate, but a fact". It means the game is ready for production. Production still has a bunch of steps where things might not always go as planned, and time slotting might push a project back a few weeks. Doesn't mean anything is horribly wrong in the land of PG. Just means not everything is 100% deterministic, and things happen that must be dealt with.

      If you look at big retailers with professionals handling PR, you realize that they deal with expectation management by giving customers exactly nothing to go on. The effect of applying this to a Kickstarter would be less updates about timelines, not more.

    45. Artem Holubiev on

      As an illustration of my concerns - to get a glimpse of what's going on you need to monitor comments of other campaign ran by PG (Strartropolis this time), to read through a ton of complaints, accusations, arguments etc. And finally find out that everything funded before 2018 would ship in the upcoming months.
      August doesn't seem realistic now.

    46. Artem Holubiev on

      Trying act objective here - these goodies are far from customs at the moment. What we would like to have here is higher level of transparency (envious glance at projects with weekly updates!). OS3 was claimed to be "China-Ready" which was supposed to minimize factory-related risks. It obviously didn't work, so it's not nice to play "China-Ready" card again in other projects imho... And starting numerous projects while there is a huge gap in communication looks like mocking us, backers!

      Any doubts on Sandy or Peterson Games is not justified. I have backed a previous KS (os2) that had delays a plenty however, it was all worth it when a properly packed box filled with all my goodies came to greet me one day after work. Things take time. Be patient please. I cannot imagine how folks will react to the customs issue with os2 that could possibly occur with os3. But that’s stuff you cannot always plan for or even predict.
