A week or so ago we launched a fantastic Kickstarter project - Darklands: Savage Hordes - to fund miniatures armed with ranged weapons for all of the various kindreds of Darklands, along with the Savage Hordes muster book.
Now, as well as providing you with a Support Starter Host in either metal or resin that includes a commander, infantry support unit and a monstrous infantry support unit for just £60 ($90) in metal or £90 ($130) in resin (saving you over 30% from the eventual RRP!), we're also giving you the opportunity to get a hold of these amazing Infantry Hosts which, with a Support Host or another Infantry Host, will boost your host to at least 1,000 gold!
Here's all the Infantry Hosts you can go for in one graphic:
Led by a commander that's not yet been produced in metal, each Infantry Host features a unit of infantry (usually ten strong, with full command) and a monstrous beast to batter your enemies to death with.
1,000 Gold with the Support Host
We've thought long and hard about what's in each infantry host, and they'll compliment your Support Hosts extremely well. Suffice to say, if you have an Infantry Host and a Support Host for the same kindred, you'll have a host of at least 1,000 gold ready and able to take on the enemy!
Increase your pledge by £60 to purchase an Infantry Host in metal (although the monster will always be resin), or £90 to purchase the Infantry Host in resin.
Limited Edition Sell-Swords
As well as the new Infantry Hosts, we're also giving you the opportunity to get a hold of these superb, strictly limited edition Sell-Swords!
Produced in metal only and presented to you in a numbered Mierce Miniatures blister pack, each Sell-Sword is limited to 50 casts only on a first come, first served basis. You are also limited to a maximum of 2 each per backer - one to use, one to keep!
So that we know how many are left on this project, we ask everyone who increases their pledge by £10 (or multiple of £10, or £20 for Urbad) - and who intends to purchase a sell-sword with that increase - to send an e-mail to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know how many of each sell-sword are to be purchased. The sell-swords won't be available to purchase on the webstore - we'll simply remove the Moneyback from your eventual pledge total and create an order for you with your sell-swords.
We'll keep you updated on the comments section of the project as to how many of each have been sold every day, and even every minute if stocks get low... but we can tell you what the totals are right now of course!
Totals correct at 3:00pm, Wednesday 7th of October 2015:
- Urbad - 11
- Uhtred Uhtredson - 25
- Finnan - 16
- Danilo Cruz on Beast Skull - 16 69
(34%) sold of 200
As you can see, you'd better get pledging for them now - because once they're gone, they're gone forever!
Backing Darklands: Savage Hordes
Backing Darklands: Savage Hordes is a great opportunity to get into the dark fantasy world of Darklands for the first time, to expand your existing Darklands collection or maybe just to grab some fantastic miniatures to paint. We'll give you the option to purchase everything in resin, too, if you're more of a painter than a gamer!
Darklands: Savage Hordes ends on Tuesday the 13th of October, which means you've around six days to get a pledge in!
Support Hosts contain a small Darklands host of around 499 gold - so Encounter Host size - where possible, and you can add the rulebook, order tokens and D10 dice to your pledge to ensure you have everything you need to get started!
The Support Hosts currently available to go for are outlined below.
There will be more Support hosts as the project continues!
There's also a couple of amazing units to go for, too!
There will be more Stretch Goals as the project continues!
