      @Arthur and others - the hosts are designed for gaming, not for painters or collectors. That's why they're called hosts and are set to a certain amount of gold, so I think you're looking at it in completely the wrong way.

      For playing games of Darklands, they're a perfect start to a host. That is what they are designed to do.

      Yeah, I agree... not really happy with the pledge tiers this time. Seems only focused on people who either want very little, or a lot of duplicates. Nothing for the painter/collector non-gamer who just wants lots of variety.

      @Rick: yes, that is quite a good deal. 2 units of Byzantii with commander is cheaper than 2 units without him - that is a no-brainer. I do not yet have the Tarask, so the new deal would be good, but as I am not sure if I want 2 or 3 units of Legionaries the added commander is tipping me over to two units.

      I'm not going for the skirmish hosts myself due to having all the monsters already ;) The encounter hosts though..For the price of the units in them (which I was going to get anyway) I get another commander and the tokens + dice for free, no complaints from me for that double there ;)

      @Rick: actually that is the main point that is keeping me from pledging Nobles. I am not sure if it is a wise decission to have a KS structure that results in loads of doubles for the people who pledge for that tier. I really have no use for those - I am more of a collector and painter anyway, that is why Nobles is nice as I would not mind having Drunes that I do not plan to collect, but I want some of the skirmish hosts and that would result in to many dooubles for my taste. For me the result is that I will stay at a lower pledge amount during the campaign.

      Those of us who pledged for the nobles have them all already..I don't mind a couple of doubles ;)

      Nice hosts. The Norse one is really good, but why does the Byzantii host have Equitus Durio as a Commander? Those of us who buy the mounted model get him on foot anyway - another commeander would have been better value.
