Yes. Love the rule book. Am getting it. Passing on the rulers. Like someone said, as a gamer, I have a box of tape measures. :) Totally cool with these items being add-ons. I much prefer minis for SGs over this stuff.
I'm personally happy these are add ons. I don't need em and it both frees up stretch goals for the stuff I do want to see more of & helps push us closer to unlocking them, as others (more completionists) add them to their pledges. It's win-win for all involved.
Bravo, keep up the good work
There is always someone who is going to be unhappy with whatever CMON does and then that someone will threaten to drop their pledge. As such I would be unhappy/disappointed that a 30K stretch goal, that takes a day to unlock now at the current pace, was some plastic ruler or velvet dice bag instead of miniatures of a unit to be unlocked in full. So it is a lose lose scenario for CMON. No pleasing everybody.
So it comes down to mathematics: will more people drop their pledge for not having plastic rulers, or for not having a unit completed? I am inclined to believe the latter.
That rulebook though... AWESOME! Added.
You're losing me, CMON. More and more paid add-on bits that look like they should be stretch goals are not what I want. I'm about to drop my pledge.
Sorry, Infantry units are 12 miniatures (so there will be 3 stretch goals with 4 miniatures each)
Infantry units are 12 miniature (so there will be 3 stretch goals with 3 units each)
Cavalry units are 4 miniatures (so there will be 2 stretch goals with 2 units each)
They promised, that backers will get this 2 units complete within the stretchgoals (so in worst case, they give a free gift of the remaining ones) so it is guaranteed, that every backer get added 2 complete unit boxes with his pledge. That's what they promised.
The rulers are doing nothing for me. To be honest... they look really cheap. Rather like something one would expect as the regular contents of the box set not as a add-on.
The book onnthe other hand really ricks my boxes though.
Not sure I really understand the "We are very close to unlocking the first half of the Knights of Casterly Rock at $830k:"
Does this mean we have to wait for some time in the indeterminate future for the other half of this unit? Are we expected to purchase the other half of this unit?
Also, the 4 bowman from the previous.. Is that 1/2 of a unit? The infantry movement trays are 12s..
Umber sigil description from the Wiki:
"In the books, the sigil is a roaring giant in chains, but in the TV show it is just the chains."
Hurra for that rulebook, om on :-) :-)
Ahhhh... Good call Metodi. That could be as well.
Just found the reference from Game of Thrones Wiki:
"The sigil of House Bolton in the books is a red flayed man on a field of pink with red blood drops"
I say - that's chained giant - House Umber.
Rulers? Back to school sales have definitely begun...
I'd have to say Bolton as well. The face and hands do appear flayed along with the drops of blood.
7 dollars for little plastic rulers that any pet would rip to shreds? come on guys. Any wargamer worth their salt uses a tape measure.
@Davide Not sure Davide, looks like it could be a variant of the Boltons but I can't find any example of this heraldry from anywhere.
@Davide the final is house Bolton.
I'm pretty excited about this kickstarter but those rulers don't do anything for me. I'll pass.
That book maybe i'll get :)
There are 6 symbols on the book's cover
3 for faction. Help me find houses:
1) wolf - stark
2) bear - mormont / umber
3) fish - Tully
4) lion - lannister
5) 3dogs - cleagane
Always ready for an "artbook"!
@Creator - Will there be a web store so I can keep up with all of these figures? I frackin love this campaign!
LOL, "will the backside mark range" that's what the front does in inches.
"We may just have the help and encouragement we need to reach our next stretch goals: New Optional Buys!"
made me laugh
But maybe they will do that anyway and just leave the rulebook as the exclusive version.
I know it's too late, but they shouldn't make the "Deluxe Rulebook" a KS exclusive. I wouldn't even sell it as a rulebook but rather an art book for all of the art in the game.
I can resist dices, bags, rulers but I just can't resist a beautiful book. :)
I have one BIG question about the Rulers. Will the backside mark range?
Not sure how I feel about a rulebook, but I will bite for nicer rulers. I still want some more substantial stretch goals...
Rulebook is nice, I'm glad the rulers aren't a SG as i wouldn't want them.
Honestly disagree with Michael :)
Honestly, the rulers should have been a SG.
I want that rulebook all of my table
Very very nice!!
