2,639 backers pledged $82,499 to help bring this project to life.

A Victory for Ijad, Solar Union, and the Free Colonies!

Thank you backers!

I've got a lot of work ahead of me. Your enthusiasm has thrown me for a loop — instead of writing, drawing, and designing, I've been dealing with printers, Bricklinkers, fulfillers, and manufacturers. But now everything is worked out.

Still, I've got a draft of the rules from Vincent that needs formatting badly before even I can understand it, I've got illustrators to give feedback, I've got text to finish.

As these things come to completion, I'll send things along to you. I want you to be able to start playing as soon as possible, so I'll get you rules just as soon as I can. They'll be followed by setting material, illustrations, building instructions (still haven't done the Hi-Leg!), and other little pieces.

When they're all synthesized into a single piece, I'll send you the PDF of the complete text. I'm concluding that it might be best if you guys come back to me with feedback before I go to press, so we'll have some back-and-forth over the next few months.

Thank you for doing this. Thank you for being enthusiastic for the things we make and being willing to support us. I can't wait to see what you make.

      I've gotta say you guys are doinig this whole thing right. Getting feedback from your backers, putting out the unfinished rules for a communty lookover is a bolder move than most people might think. I'm really looking forward to the finished product andf any help I can be to make this great I am more than willing. Thanks again to the whole team!

      I am ridiculously excited about this, and will spend the time between now and publication rooting through the bottom of my kid's lego bins for 'the good parts'.

    3. Creator Augustine Von Freiburg on April 12, 2012

      Well I assume we're all going to be mentioned in the hundred or so extra pages you will need to add to the back of the book for the credits right?

    4. Creator Joshua A.C. Newman on April 12, 2012

      Well, they don't have this intense, passionate community!

      Actually, as I understand it, Heavy Gear *was* sorta done like this. Check out that credits page sometime. Yikes. That's like a billion people.

      Congratulations on the successful project. Also I'm glad to hear that you will be doing a community edit before the release. A lot of higher budget miniature games would be better off if they did something similar.

    6. Creator Augustine Von Freiburg on April 12, 2012

      It's not often that I am excited to see a large chunk of money come out of my checking account but in this case I am thrilled. Congrats guys. Sincerely looking forward to helping with the final spot checking of the rules once you have them done.

    7. Creator Joshua A.C. Newman on April 12, 2012

      Devon, yeah. Not only is it a nasty weapon, but it's great for busting through walls.

    8. Creator Devon on April 12, 2012

      The Fat Snake looks great. I really like the pile bunker on the left arm!

    9. Creator Julio Ángel Escajedo on April 12, 2012

      Congratulations! Can't wait to see the rulebook!

    10. Creator Pantherx69 on April 12, 2012

      Awesome! I literally stumbled across this today (with just 8 hours left to go), showed it to my 11 year old son and he was stoked. He spent the rest of the evening sifting through his Lego crate and building frames.

      Needless to say I pledged and we're both looking forward to some fierce battles!

    11. Creator T0mu on April 12, 2012

      Way to go!
      Eager to beta test the whole thing with my sons!

    12. Creator Karl Nyborg on April 12, 2012

      Yaaaay! I can't wait. :D I definitely think having a back and forth with the backers with the rules would be for the best to make sure the best version goes to the print. You'll have about 2,000 of us spell checking and making sure the rules are correct. xD

      Fantastic! I'm really looking forward to reading just the bare naked rules text, let alone the finished, formatted, illustrated and printed rulebook!
