Update #23

125000! REALLY!?!?!!?!

I told Mike he was making me a liar...

Well, the idea of progression miniatures was tossed out awhile ago, which led to an amusing discussion about babies and tombstones (it may have gone the way of zombie babies as well). So this is what we've got:

So, to our Backers! At the 125000 goal level (100x our original goal!) we are going to give every backer (from the $12 backer level and higher) 1 sprue that has a baby dwarf, boy dwarf, girl dwarf, and a tombstone. You read that correctly, IT'S FREE (the first one is free!). We are not planning on painting them (painting levels can discuss this with us via messages). No .pdfs attached to these guys. Bases are not included. The kids will be 15mm to the eyes. The tombstone will be 25mm tall. The baby will be proportional to the kids in size. ($4 for additional sprues - if you want them)

Concept Art:

We're not making you pay any more, but we are pestering you to keep telling everyone (like reddit, facebook, twitter, forums, local game store, your favorite rich benefactor, etc.) [If of course this interests you...]

      Wah, I hadn't even noticed the knitting needles! As a knitter myself, I love it. She's totally a punk-rock DIY little lady - approved!

      Its x1 per backer irrespective of the number of sets in your reward level and any additional beyond one will be $4 for each addition.

      Creator Rusty Q. Shackleford on July 25, 2012

      So, firstly. Where do I get a sprue with beards to give these kids?

      Secondly, what about the x2/x5 ones? Will they only receive 1 sprue of these or will they receive 2 and 5 respectively?

      Remember everyone, you will, at certain levels, get extra weapons to customize the kids with.

      @Jason - Yes.
      .
      The Boy is supposed to be scared, cause he's been kidnapped!
      .
      I say she's a statement about how some feminist women are trying get back to do all those stereotypical things they were trying to get away from on top of being the independent driven gals they are today. Or.. wouldn't you rather have a nice wooly shirt, rather than an axe? Plus, knitting needles are the new weapon of choice for any little girl who is serious about taking on the hordes of evil.

    11. Ks_profile_pic.small

      Creator Eva S on July 24, 2012

      While I love the idea of the little girl having an axe (yay axes!), I immediately thought about the character in Homestuck who murders people with knitting needles when people started talking about her not having a weapon. :)

      How do I message Stonehaven about getting the extra troll and dwarf? I want to get one of each XD

    17. Csio-thumb.small

      Creator Jackson Starky on July 24, 2012

      That's at the $56 backer level, + $4 for the blacksmith, + $10 for the troll

    18. Csio-thumb.small

      Creator Jackson Starky on July 24, 2012

      @Beautifulfatman0: At $70, you'll get one of everything, including the troll. Add another $10 for the t-shirt, and another $10 for international shipping if needed.

    19. Nice%20moustache.small

      Creator Beautifulfatman0 on July 24, 2012

      So what do I need to pay to get everything, the troll, the kids, all the dwarves? What do I need to put in on top of the Ultimate adventures package? Where exactly do the Add-on goals end?

    20. Csio-thumb.small

      Creator Jackson Starky on July 24, 2012

      This is awesome. In fairness to the concept artist, these are dwarves we're talking about, not elves or even humans, but I agree; kids should be happier. They haven't yet figured out what life will do to them. ;-) So yes, make the kids happier, please? And I agree: give the girl an axe! A wooden axe, similar to the boy's sword. I mean, knitting needles are fine weapons in a pinch, but no self-respecting dwarf woman will go without learning to swing an axe or a hammer, so the same should be true of her daughter. :-)

    21. Bradley_zakany_-_zombified_profile.small

      Creator Bradley Zakany on July 24, 2012

      Those knitting needles are probably pretty dangerous if she goes for the eyes.

      Oh man, that's so not fair - I have to pay RENT here guys!

      Right-o - I want HAPPY kids, or at least, not about to bust into tears - do you see that boy's face? I bet the unconscious/dead dwarf is his daddy. Sheesh - lighten the poor kid's mood! Here's my offer - If the kids get happier (and girl dwarf gets a hammer or axe doll), I'll up my pledge again. :)

      I am usually pretty strong on the side of give the gals some weapons, but I really liked the knitting needles, too. Well, the boy gets a sword and hammer; maybe her other little hand is clutching that axe ^_~

      @Duncan: Update #22 seems crystal clear on this:
      "The Blacksmith, Troll (except the $425 painted level), & T-Shirt are not a part of any packages. They are Extras, meaning you have to add them by increasing your pledge for them!"

      Just to clarify though, the "ULTIMATE ADVENTURES PACKAGE - Everything from the $40 level + all of the Add-on Goals. Also includes scenic bases & .pdfs for all your dwarves! (add $10 for international shipping)." Says that it includes add-ons- does that not include the Troll and Blacksmith?

      At this point I no longer can tell what each pledge level includes. What is considered "Add-On Goals" for the purposes of the Ultimate Adventures package? I can't tell if things like the Troll are included in that, or if you have to pay extra on top of that...
      This project has become very confusing.

      To confirm, is this per backer or per set? I'm in for 2x everything so want to know if I should chip in an extra $4 to guarantee getting the kids for my partner too.
