The campaign purpose.
The purpose of this campaign is to get the funds to produce these new hobgoblin miniatures and also expand their range with new models and allies like Bugbears , Ogre , characters , etc.
So we will have a new cool race to add into the Greenskin Wars universe.
* All the miniatures are made of lead free white metal and are supplied unnassembled, unpainted and without bases (bases can be supplied at request for a small extra cost) I decided to not include bases because there's a wide variety of clients who want square bases for regiments , some round or hex for skirmish games... so we better avoid the extra cost of adding bases that you might not use in the end.
Hobgoblins are the most cunning and evil of all the greenskins. They are almost as tall as a common orc but slender and thinner. They have a strange green skin tone with shades from brown till red or orange. They dominate the eastern lands and dig deep into the mountains to build theit lairs and underground towns, where they inhabit with other dangorus races like Bugbears , Ogres and sometimes even some Doom Goblin tribes that reach that far to the East. They are famous amongst the other greenskin races for being the only goblinoids who grow facial hair, even though not all of them have, it's a mistery what makes them grow that hair or not , probably some strange mutation from their ancestors...
The Hobgoblins starting group comes with : 1 Hobgoblin Lord, 1 Champion , 1 Musician, 1 Standard Bearer, 1 shaman and 3 regular warriors.
You can see a video of them here! : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tTuwN7S86kI

SKRAAG - Tainted Hobgoblin Legend
Some people asked for him to be available again , and this is a Hobgoblins campaign afterall so....
SKRAAG is known as the first hobgoblin to fall into the dark powers, he was vanished from his tribe, and cursed to walk alone across the land...but far to surrender he became stronger and more powerfull but also really twisted and regretfull for those who "betray" him. With the years Skraag managed to embrace under his command many other greenskins who also felt to the dark gods promises, now they all fight together against any other creature that cross in their path.
Skraag is a huge mutated Hobgoblin Lord. To add Skraag to your pledge just increase your total by 8 €.

Risks and challenges
The risks are very low , because the main sculpts are done , and only possible goals unlocked will need to be sculpted as the campaign goes on and after. At this point I've run 4 succesfully kickstarter campaigns and I've learn a lot , sometimes the hardway... , but all counts in the end :)
So I'm very confident now with my stimations BUT even though , keep in mind this are just "stimations" there's always room for delays , accidents or simply some thing may need some changes or fixes , and any of those things will affect the stimated times.
If you are not "open minded" about stimated times and will not have the patience to carry with any further delay , please do not backe the project and wait for its regular release ( but you'll miss the cool campaign prices, hey you can't have it all , can you?)
