"News of a Bayourk warband plaguing the Hobbleshire town of Milwood summon a garrisoned Albionnican warband accompanied by the local Halfling Militia. They find the villainous Bayourk tribe taking residence upon the infamous Troll Bridge, spoiling for a fight.
However, on hearing a mighty roar, the local Halflings shake with fear, for they know how the bridge earned it’s name. Old Grogg, the largest River Troll ever seen, emerges from beneath, and he is not happy that his slumber has been disturbed..."

Throughout the campaign, there may be Stretch Goals broken that unlock Add-Ons for your pledge. These will be listed here. Please note, some Add-Ons may impact the production time of your pledge, but they will be clearly marked.
Shipping is not included in your pledge and will need to be added after the conclusion of the campaign. I will provide you with full instructions at the end, through the pledge manager.
I am still finalising the exact shipping costs but to give you a rough idea here are a couple of preliminary estimates:
● For pledges WITHOUT the box packaging, such as WARBAND, OLD GROGG or SWIFTY GRAB: £3 to the UK, £6 EU and £8 ROW.
● For pledges WITH the box packaging, such as VANGUARD, WARCHEST, TREASURE CHEST or BATTLE CHEST: £5 to the UK, £9 EU and £12 ROW.
These estimates might increase if you add a lot of Add-ons to your core pledge.
The final shipping cost is subject to change, and will be based on your location and specific rewards.
There will also be an option to pick up your pledges at the Salute 2016 gaming show. I plan on selling the boxes there, so they will be ready to collect. I have put May as a delivery date to take into account the shipping times overseas, but if all goes to plan they will be ready in April. I will try and have all pledges sent off by then, but if not they will be sent very soon afterwards.
Risks and challenges
Any undertaking of this nature is a huge commitment and a lot of work for everyone involved. Miniatures need sculpting, manufacturing, packing and eventually shipping to the backers.
It is at these hurdles that some Kickstarters have faltered in the past, so, I have given careful consideration to each part of the process to minimise potential risk. I have a contact list of reputable manufacturers that I have worked with before, as well as an in-house resin caster and a local metal caster.
Also, instead of relying purely on concept art and work-in-progress sculpts to illustrate my products, all of the initial models that I am offering have already been completed. All components of the Battle for Troll Bridge boxed set are moulded and ready to go into production. I also have many more models sculpted, so backers know exactly what they are investing in.
To ensure the campaign runs smoothly I will be working on it full-time. Even though this time I will be going solo, I will still ensure that all your questions will be answered and updates will posted at all hours.
Finally, I have set achievable delivery date estimates. During my last Kickstarter I was somewhat overwhelmed by the support and as such had too much work to do to hit the original delivery date. This time I have prepared much more before the campaign, and each of the stretch goals have been carefully planned as to not affect the production time of the project. This will increase the likelihood that product will be delivered on time or, perhaps even ahead of schedule.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
