      Ok. Thanks for the clarification. I read miniatures as including GOOs, and I guess vice versa.

      This doesn't change my earlier comment - had some of my friends known, they would bought things in a different way, since they were more into the miniatures than say the Dreamlands figure packs.

      Ah, my money was on a H.P. Lovecraft figure as the mystery GOO. Wanders around the board, and scares the monsters away from the area he stops in.

      Ah, what a terrifying revelation!
      I hope you are not sacrificed to the Old Ones for revealing this disturbing secret!

      @AI Lew, I believe we already have a GOO sculpt of Sandy--the H----- model is based on what Sandy looks like without his glasses on. He's kind of like Superman in that way. When mild-mannered Sandy Petersen takes off his glasses he transforms into He Who Must Not Be Named!

      @Sandy, that's fantastic. Glad you are adding to the canon.

      The mystery GOO should be like your avatar picture Sandy. Basically a shrunken down version of your head with glasses, a big smile and tentacles :)

      @Sandy That sounds so awesome! Can't wait to see the rest of the concept art for it!

      Also just to clarify. The new "Cthuilhu Wars Exclusive G.O.O." is a brand new Great Old One never before revealed. Despite my reluctance, my son Arthur and my partners have prevailed upon me to add, for the first time, my own Great Old One. You can think of it, if you will, as the Thing that the hero does not see in the final scene of the Mountains of Madness that drives his partner wild.

      +1 to just making the cultists an add on for $ if we hit the Bhole. It would still likely be cheaper than getting cultist from the fenris games down the road, which would alsobe reasonable for anyone that wants extras that badly.

    10. Seth Drebitko on July 6, 2013

      @Johnathon well we can't discount that at around 4k in backers there aren't at least a couple ridiculous expectations :P

      @ sandy, yea AFAIK there hasnt been people asking for 5-6 FREE cultists, merely to have them available as an addon in which we can purchases. no one expects you to buy the out of pocket.

      Leigh Spence on July 6, 2013

      I, too, believe that the call has been to simply make the 5 Cultists available for purchase, not as a freebie.

      @Seth, +1

    14. Seth Drebitko on July 6, 2013

      @sandy I actually didn't personally feel that the extra grey cultists should have been free. I assumed (and I'm thinking plenty of others do) that the extra greys would have been an add on we would have,willingly, paid for.

    15. Fourpaws on July 6, 2013

      Sandy, you are a class act to offer that. even down the final stretch everything keeps looking better and better.

      @Jamie - I missed that. Thanks.

    17. Jamie B. on July 6, 2013

      Yes. I'm not Sandy, but yes. It's in the FAQ.

      @Sandy - Does that mean if I pledge at Cultist and add enough extras to hit $200 I get the free GOOs?

    19. Arturo Cavari on July 6, 2013

      Oh well, I'll give up my quest for the original GOO

    20. mmcfarlin on July 6, 2013

      Thanks for the clarification for how the CE figures work.

      @Sandy,

      You sir, are AWESOME! Thank you so much for creating this amazing game and the minis. A wonderful legacy to leave in this terrible, terrible universe. :)

      I see that we have kind of a weird muddle of which figures are available to which pledge.

      So here is the intent, regardless of text:

      1) every bid of cultist or higher gets all of the "collectible" miniatures. Rules do not come with these for use in the game. They are just for display, Christmas tree ornaments, or whatever.

      2) every bid of Cultes des Goules or $200 gets the 9 add-on Great Old Ones. from Yig to Hydra. These come with complete rules for use.

      3) every bid of Book of Eibon or De Vermiis Mysteriis gets the new mystery Great Old One. He comes with complete rules for use.

      There is no plan at this time to add 5 free gray cultist figures. However, I personally promise that we WILL add the 5 extra gray cultists if and only if the Bhole gets unlocked, so it will have something to snack on. I have not checked this out with my partners, so they may balk. If they do, I'll pay for the extra gray cultists out of my own pocket.

      Nice! I know some people are 'meh' on these collector figures, but to me it's one I can paint

      a) without dirupting the faction colours if I were to choose to keep the game pieces unpainted
      b) first to test out a scheme for the ones for the game
      c) differently from the ones for the game and use for CoC or AH without confusing which are for what
      d) all of the above.

      The're such a great add-on, I hope they're available for individual sale after the KS is over.

    24. mmcfarlin on July 6, 2013

      The detail in these miniatures is amazing. I really hope we make it all the way to the Bhole, or if not then have a way for us to purchase the ones that didn't get unlocked.
