      @Jeffrey Glad to see you received the product in good condition at the very least. Hopefully our packaging protected the product decent enough against the ravages of postal workers.

      @Scott The Cyborg - Sarn was unlocked before the Acid Trap Plant.

      Thank you both for letting us know! Would love to see what you do with them!!

      My turn to receive my double Commander mound of minis! My package was received in good condition and complete! Like Jeffrey I am also excited and looking forward to your next MA mini-line; I was just going over your updates and remembered all the new casts you were teasing us with.
      Quick question - what is the name of the mini that was unlocked just before the Acid Trap Plant?

    5. Jeffrey Olesky on November 3, 2016

      I just received my double Commander mound of minis!!! Packaging was a bit damaged but all contents were intact and in good shape! I am very pleased with how they look and excited to get them assembled and painted!

      Hopefully ya'll do a MA II mini line soon!

      Hi Bob, We are just waiting till the project is wrapped before putting items up for sale. Should be a week or two, and we will be releasing a flood of products to our website. Keep an eye out as we plan to send our backers a discount code for that week!

      A friend of mine asked when "Arise the Ancients" and the "Directory of Denizens" will be available for purchase by non-backers. Personally, I'm regretting not having gotten them in hard copy when I had the chance...

    8. Mark B on October 20, 2016

      Woot! I found a wonderful surprise on my doorstep today when I arrived home from work. The Commander level pledge box was loaded with mighty metal goodness. Great work, John and team!

      @Scott Jones Goodman has done a re-issue of MA 1E in a soft cover also. You can order right from their site, which they just updated!!

      Thanks, I had done some research and kind of figured that. I had just read the free 5th edition rules I had been sent and noticed the rules didn't match. I have the 4th edition and asked our local FLGS to bring in the Goodman Games stuff but our local distributor is out of stock until their next re-order. First-world problems.

      @Scott Jones - James M. Ward wrote the adventure for his system Metamorphosis Alpha(tm) and I believe this adventure is 1st & 4th edition compatible. I am not positive, but maybe some of the other Die-Hard fans who have looked through it could give more information? I know their RolePlaying Systems are available here:

      What game system do the supplements "Arise the Ancients" and "Denizens" use?

    13. Kip Corriveau on September 24, 2016

      I got my minis yesterday. All of them are good and some are just Amazing! I think the the Rabbitoid is my favorite.

      Can we get an update please. If nothing more than to say you're still working on things. If something is not ready, can you let us know to get a rough idea where things stand.

      Hi John. I haven't received any of the PDF downloads or a request for shipping. I want to make sure everything is okay with my order. If you could let me know it would be very much appreciated.

      @ Eric S. I will have Felipe look into it for you. You should have gotten the .PDF links already

      I haven't received anything either. No digital rewards, no minis and no link to pay for anything.

    19. John Popson 6-time creator
      on August 8, 2016

      @ Tracy Eric and David. If you have not received a link to pay for shipping, then we have not shipped your stuff yet. I am finishing off the dice today, which is pretty much the last thing that needed to be done. We have been shipping minis in groups, starting with the lowest pledges first. I will make a formal update in a few minutes. Sorry about the lack of communication!

      Hi John, how many more to ship? I haven't received the minis yet.

    23. Craig J. Brain on July 12, 2016

      I've had trouble getting online for a while and finally found the backer kit. The adventure and denizen book are awesome!!!

      I am just so impressed with the rage of miniatures that you have created. Have you got any painted examples to show off at all John?

      @Creator. Will you be at GenCon? Maybe I could arrange to pick them up there? Maybe it will save you some shipping.

    25. John Popson 6-time creator
      on July 5, 2016

      @Jeff. No, all of the minis have not shipped yet. We are breaking it up into sections. you should get a message with a link to purchase shipping in the next week or 2, depending on where you fall in line. Unless you just want to drive down from Toledo and pick em up in person!! ;-)

    26. Jeffrey Runokivi on June 29, 2016

      Have all the miniatures been shipped? Not gotten mine yet. The PDFs, however, came through fine. Thanks.

      @Creator - It's awesome to hear the miniatures are starting to arrive! Can't wait to get mine. Is there any way to get a timeline for shipping based on backer number or pledge level? I'm on a double commander plus a bunch of extras, so I'm assuming I'll be at the back of the bus getting my figs.

      @Glenn - Glad you received your miniatures. If anyone is still looking for their PDFs, they are located on your BackerKit confirmation page.

    29. Glenn Wilson on June 26, 2016

      Have miniatures. Look good. Thanks. PDFs are optional to mre.

      Just got a message from John about the Denizens and Arise PDFs. They are located on your BackerKit confirmation page. Look for a link/button that says, "Get Your Digital Downloads." I was not expecting to have them delivered there so I did not look there.

      Thanks John. The PDFs look great.

      ok, got it. Felipe, put me down for missing PDF links to both Denizens and Arise. Thanks.

      Hey gang. There seems to be some goofiness with the.PDF's First of all, we have not given the list of people for the 5E rules to Jamie Chambers yet. We are waiting for him to return from a convention, so we will try to take care of that in the next few days. As far as people who did not get links at all, I will get Felipe on it tomorrow in the morning. :-) Glad that the people who have got the PDFs that we produced are happy so far. Felipe and Jim worked very hard to excellent content for this Kickstarter, so hats of to them!

      I only pledged for the two books, but wow, I've got to say that I'm TOTALLY satisfied, more than satisfied, with the quality of what I got for my pledge. If I used minis, I'd have bought them, but I am VERY pleased to have been able to have been a part of this KS despite my theater of the mind approach. I will certainly be watching for more Kickstarters like this one in the future.

      AWESOME, would pledge again. :)

    40. David Crowell on May 14, 2016

      Curious to know who else has read the Denizens Guide and the Arise the Ancients adventure.

      A few spoiler free thoughts on the adventure.

      At first I thought "Wow! This is a deadly adventure." Then I realized that the characters each get to start with a combat knife, a laser pistol, and ten items of special forces gear of their choice. This should help to give them a fighting chance.

      The adventure does a nice job of showcasing some of the new creatures from the miniatures range and Denizens Guide. Some appear as encounters, some as possible PCs. Not everything from the minis makes it in, but it's pretty close.

      The map has a couple of intentionally blank spaces. These can be left sealed off or filled in by the referee.

      This would make a nice convention module or one shot adventure or it could be used as the start of a campaign. Note though that the PCs are going to be quite powerful compared to the usual starting characters in MA.

      If anyone else you know was hoping to get in on these before waiting to get these from our web-store, they are available for preorder at backerkit.

      @James, I really feel like I have not been communicating enough!! It was tough for a while. It seemed like nothing was going right. Just one setback after another, but that can always happen when a project basically doubles the initial idea. We probably should have gave a bit more time on the fulfillment, but it is really tough to gauge that kind of stuff before the project is even launched. Thanks again for the support, and understanding. :-)

      @James Once the surveys are complete, we have to provide Jamie with a list of emails for the people who get the .PDF, and he will email you all links to the file. Hope that helps clear things up!

    48. David Crowell on April 27, 2016

      It is worth clicking on the concept art in the shop on Backer Kit to see the finished minis. A lot of these look even better than the concept art we have all been drooling over.

      @ Glenn Happy to say that everything that was held up, showed up on Wed. last week. I put them into master molds right away, and just have to finish the production molds for 6 pieces. I will have an update later tonight, but I can do a bit more here. The print publications are at the printer, and proofs have been printed. The printer is mailing them out tomorrow, so we should have them by Wed. this week. If all is good there, we will give the greenlight, and should have all of the print stuff in our hands in about a week past that point. I am assembling a 3 of the multi-part pieces so that we can get final weights on them, and get them photographed tonight, and then the surveys should be ready to head out as well. I assure you that know hookers or blow have been purchased with your money and that we are busting our butts to get this done! ;-)

      How is the Customs thing going?
