      Awesome Paul! By the Power of GreyDuck!

      Thanks Andrew, I haven't added stretch goals yet but I do remember your Kobolds Kickstarter campaign. I was thinking of a Quest Book with additional quests as stretch goals... your One Shot adventure stretch goals would be a good fit for that.

      I am keeping with the duck/anthropomorphic theme, so the duck adventurers from Quack Keep will be available as well as some of the Law Vs Chaos minis - I am trying to get them all painted for the campaign page but that may be a bridge too far - there are over forty additional miniatures from the back catalogue.

      Hey Ben, that's a great idea! A duck-bull :)

      Looks awesome Darcy - ill be in for Seated Morduk on Throne!

      If you have any stretch goals I can't see them. If you check out Rebel Minis you can see some of teh stretch goals we use that have been successful. one page adventures tend to work well.

      also I see you have bundles with previous kickstarters. great idea don't forget to allow them to be added in as singles to your pledge manager.

      I've always been a fan of minotaurs, how about a duckotaur? Horns, bill, webbed feet!

      Hi Travis, I am glad you're quack! Er, back! Something fishy, eh? I will see what I can do...

    9. Darcy Perry 5-time creator 4 days ago

      Hi Ezekial, I like that idea and would have each small set available as an add-on (I am still working on the artwork), so you could get the set of magic mushies as an add-on. So each set will have it's own add-on price to a "Pick-your-sets" type tier. I prefer your suggestion to cherry picking individual minis. However, I know there will be some who say, "I just want the turtle with an axe..." or, "I only want the crow ranger."

    10. Ezekiel Bones 4 days ago

      I understand this adds complications but I totally collect mushroom people and would be discouraged to see that I would need to do an all in or close pledge to get them. Would rather have tiers that were like "get 3 duck quest sets" and "get 5 duck quest sets" and then get to pick which figure sets I want vs having to buy more to get what I want (or having to pay a lot extra one figure at a time)

      I am already looking to go all in on this one. Duck, turtles, crows, Mushrooms! How about some fish-men (who look more fish than man) - Deep ones of Duckthulu, maybe Father Duckgon and Mother Hyduckra.

      Hi David! First off, thank you for your continued support. It really means a lot. :) Getting previous backers involved a couple of weeks before the official launch is going to help shape the campaign before the feathers fly! :)

      There is bound to be a Quack Keep tie-in of some sort. I am not certain what that will look like yet. Although terrain is not my main focus, I couldn't help but throw in a few pieces... and I agree with you - there is a lot out there already. You will like the sarcophagus though - it is duckified. The throne is made of bones with a variety of skulls thrown on for good measure; duck, crow... platypus! Additional terrain will be of a ducky nature.

      Requests for more anthropomorphic adversaries is duly noted. That's the most asked for addition and I will do the best (with the time I have available) to fulfill that - to a degree. It has taken months to get to this point and the pressure will be on in a couple of weeks from now. I may squeeze in a range of non-duck mercenaries to help diversify the range.

      Once again, thank you!

    14. David Drake on

      Hi Darcy! Looks great! Will be buying more ducks! A couple of thoughts. Will there be more character figures for Quack Keep? Terrain, lots of companies are already making the terrain you list, I personally have plenty of them. Rather than a treasure chest, hoard or stairs (leave the sarcophagus), instead have more stuff to fill out Morducks temple/throne room, such as an altar to Duckthulhu, duck themed dais for his throne to sit upon, etc. I realize this KS is designed for HeroQuest, so maybe a add-on for more minions? Will there be write-ups for the models similar to the ones in Quack Keep? How about Rabbit adventurers? Squirrels? Final thought, A Duckthulhu themed portal designed around the famous demon portal from Tomb of Horrors? Thanks for the notification about this project!

      Hi Robert, we have Hedgehogs visit on occasion - I will see what I can rustle up. Thank you for your feedback. The crows have proved popular!

    16. Darcy Perry 5-time creator on

      Hi Baron, Newtlings, Otters and Froglings... awesome suggestions! I am going to keep sculpting!

      I’m looking forward to more ducks, and especially all the crows. I agree that having other anthropomorphic animals would be good additions for this or a future project. I would be particularly in favor of hedgehogs.

    18. Darcy Perry 5-time creator on

      Hi Edward, thanks for the great feedback. I have some snapping turtles as "Fimir" and a few ideas for other creatures. The Throne of Bones is definitely Duck-Themed! I could always sculpt some more with the duck theme in mind. :)

      I don't have John onboard for this Kickstarter. Everything will be cast by Chris in the UK. Getting the miniatures cast in three countries at once was problematic.

    19. Baron on

      They look good. But to go with the ducks I got in the prior project, I'd love to see some Newtlings they might encounter in life on a river. Maybe some Otters or Froglings. Sort of a Kenneth Grahame or Beatrix Potter meets your favorite -Quest game. Best of luck!

      Edward Marchena on

      Looks great Darcy! Fimir (chameleons, maybe?) for a stretch goal add on? Or some furniture duck themed replacements for Heroquest? Is Effin Cool onboard as well? Looking forward to this!
