This is Steve, with a note about Ogre Miniatures Set 2. Yes, 2.
We have reached a thousand backers for Set 1, which exceeds our expectations – and with over a week still to go! I don’t think we will hit the really crazy stretch goals, but you could still surprise me.
We’ve reached the point where Kickstarter supporters not only get Set 1 sooner, but save $5 over retail prices. If enough stretch goals are reached, there will be more savings. I see your enthusiasm here and it feeds my own!
So it’s definitely time to talk about a second set. There are two options on this: the Combine versions of the same units, or the rest of the PE units. I’m going to put my two cents in now and say that I’d rather do the advanced units.
So my initial proposal for Set 2, at a backer price of $30, would include:
A Mark IV (red)
A Fencer (blue, with extra Fencer-B turret)
Defense units in blue, as follows:
SHVY – 4, going up to 6 with stretch goals
MHWZ – 2, going up to 4
GEV-PC, with infantry – 4, going up to 6
LGEV – 6, going up (by pairs) to 10
Light Tank – 6, going up (also by pairs) to 10.
Maybe: trucks. Maybe: a couple of missile crawlers. Those might add another $5 to the set’s initial cost, but you might tell me that it’s worth it.
Here’s a survey. Let me know what you think.
