      @Kenny, there is some cool minis already, definitely looking forward to seeing the rest once they are sculpted!

      I went in at "EB survival of the fittest" so I should be getting one of each except the James Ward mini, I might get the book add-on too!

      @John/Phillip, Grats on the KS! With all the extra minis we picked up in the last couple of days, I'm going to have to soul searching to decide where my dollars are going. And that's a good thing. :)

      Great last few days! I'm happy
      for you guys. Excited to see what is still to come from this new line of miniatures. I'm glad to hear you will keep working on PC mini's.

      @Ron. We will do some player character stuff now that we will be licensed. The problem with doing PCs is that with the varied amounts of physical mutation combinations that are available in MA, it is tough to make minis that represent them well. Trust me when I say, that we are working on it!

      Merry Christmas everyone!

      Please pass my apreciations on to your artist. For a non-RPGer who knew nothing about MA he has knocked it out of the park.

      Size and painting will differentiate the hyena-oid from its wolfoid cousins.

    18. John Popson 6-time creator

      @Matthew, safe travels to you as well sir. It is actually a Hyena-oid. It is much smaller than a wolfoid. When we first presented that artwork to Jim for approval, he said "I like it a lot, but thats not a wolfoid!" :-) Our concept artist has done a great job, considering he does not play roleplaying games, let alone knew anything about Metamorphosis Alpha. He has just ran with the ideas we have given him over the last 6 months.

      @John/Phillip, Nice one, i see you updated the main campaign page!

      Il do one last update, lets see if we can get the "Wolfoid cousin" mini unlocked

      Good luck for the last few hrs

      @Kenny, Looks like "Wyrmipede" has made it to the main paige ;)

    25. Tom aka "Original Timmy"
      Superbacker

      @John/Phillip, so the $14,500 is a Frogoid!? What is "Wyrmipede" really called?

    26. John Popson 6-time creator
      Superbacker
      on

      Felipe: @David I agree. That particular piece of concept art was not stage 2 developed towards the direction of creatures we wanted to create for this line. I have a feeling with the chaos of creature genetics on the Warden our Frogoids may have stronger amphibian abilities giving a stronger fish-like appearance. Perhaps a better creature term would be Amphiboids?

      Felipe: @Kenny We created the names with some thought that every surviving tribe would have their own name for what they see on the Warden, but we are assuming Mr. Ward may have his own ideas on the creature names.

      Felipe: @Scott not sure if I over complicated the text, but the ability to Add-On another pledge level was a "Yes" answer to your question regarding the $400 for 4x miniatures.

    29. David Crowell on

      And the Frogoid, although it looks more fish than frog to me in the drawing. Kinda cute though. In a mutated "I want to eat your face" sort of way.

    30. John Popson 6-time creator
      Superbacker

      Felipe: @David The upcoming stretch goal is not a Wolfoid, but it is a cousin... ;-)

      @Tom - Wyrmipede, i like that better then Wurmipede. Hope Jim W likes it and it sticks :)

      Still Felipe: For the question of having the option to pledge now to get multiple rewards at your pledge level and the question of having the option to gain pledges during the survey we will honor Add-On amounts equal to the minimum pledge levels for the rewards anyone is looking to receive. We added the text to the "ADD-ONS" section:

      "As a Tier 1 option anyone can treat all non-Early Bird Pledge Levels as an Add-On. We will include these options in the survey portion. For example you can Add-On +$200 to gain the Commander Pledge Level rewards multiple times."

      @John/Phillip, Looks like the "Wyrmipede" is unlocked!

      @Kenny, I nicked your Wyrmipede name for my updates ;)

      Felipe Again: @Andrew Perry - The commander level already includes 2 sets of all the unlocked miniatures. To receive more than the 2 sets, adjust your pledge level as Tracy Vierra explained. At the end of the Kickstarter part of the survey is a set of questions sent to everyone that asks for an account of which add-ons any extra pledge amounts should be applied to. Hope that helps!! :-)

      @Kenny,Cool, yeah i did the rounds of dropping off presents earlier, just chilling before the madness of Christmas day!

      No worries, thanks for the quick response. I take things too literally sometimes or just plain get confused if it's possible. Glad to see the Kickstarter taking off on the last lap! Also excited about the 5e pdf, that's great! Another no-brainer question but is it possible to do TWO Commander pledges for $400? That way I get 4 of each miniature, with the exception of the James Ward figure of which I would get two. One could be a mutated version. Or be an evil version with a goatee. Or both.

    38. David Crowell on

      Wurmipede, eh? I like it. One of my favorite pieces of concept art, it just looks all kinds of nasty. And is that a second Wolfoid I see lurking?

      I did the math on the Commander level pledge and if you take out $20 for the two print supplements it's about five bucks per figure. Not bad at all, especially considering some are larger figures.

    39. John Popson 6-time creator
      Superbacker
      on

      Felipe here: @scott the large models should not be mixed. For tier 2, It is a group of 3 of the same models for $18 add-on regardless of size, and only certain "larger" models do not have an option for x5 of the same at a discount. When it comes to the larger miniatures, we will have those groups named uniquely so that it is clearer when taking the survey.

      John and I are often like a two-headed creature each head going different routes trying to reach the same goal. We both worked on that graphic. Sorry it has lent to some confusion. The repeated images may have been too much where a x3 or a x5 next to the solitary image may have been the less confusing option?

      Hi, I am confused regarding the last update when you mentioned the add-ons. Assuming I have a tier 2 pledge (I do) for $18 I can get a unit of 3 small models (ie. 3 Gorilloids). For $18 I can get 3 LARGE models. Same price. Same amount of models. Correct? Why are the add-ons even listed seperately if they are the same? The large models can be mixed I guess and there is no option for a group of 5, is that the only difference?

      @John/Phillip - Cool concept sketches you added, Rocking close to to the Wurmipede (sorry had to call it something). Lets hope it keeps rolling along here.

      @Tom- Doing good, Christmas eve got a few family things to do.

      Just calculate and add it in to your pledge. You can change the number under manage your pledge.

      Hi John,

      I love MA - Which is why I backed this - it looks like we are unlocking all sorts of other figures. I would like to add them. How do I update my pledge to reflect that I want to get these additional figures?

      @Kenny, we will be monitoring it as close as we can today. If we crush the next 3 stretch goals, I have to pick more from our concept art. Our artist has been churning out concepts for us for 6 mos. So we actually have a pretty big file of stuff!
