BattleTech: Clan Invasion Kickstarter Link and FAQ
« on: 22 July 2019, 14:23:43 »

Kickstarter campaign is LIVE!

In 3050, the true heirs of the lost Star League thunder forth from the depths of the far Periphery and carve deep into the quarreling Successor States. As the Clan juggernaut rolls across the coreward realms of the Inner Sphere, the House Lords scramble to shore up their defenses and devise some way to halt the invaders.

The Clan spear is aimed at the heart of human-occupied space. Do you possess the bold tactics and heroic courage to defeat warriors trained from birth to conquer? Or will you uphold Kerensky’s dream to cast aside the squabbling lords of the Inner Sphere and reignite the flame of the Star League?

Note: this FAQ will mirror the same information provided via the official Kickstarter page.

How do I Add-on things?
Select the pledge you want and then when you're checking out, just manually add the amount of the add-on's $ value to the pledge. After the campaign we'll send you a pledge manager survey and you can select the items you want there for checkout so we know what to send you.

Will there be a Pledge Manager?
Yes :) [CrowdOx]

Will all of these [miniatures] be Redesigns?
YES! They will all go through the redesign process.

Will the Elementals be different or will they be all the same?
There will be at least a few different poses. We are not sure how many yet, and we are working in very tight quarters on that base! We will do out best!

What Minis are the Salvage Boxes drawn from?
They will be drawn from the Clan Invasion and the first 2-4 Clan Star Packs. Basically, the ones that are done or will be done in time for the First Wave of product.

Are the additional neoprene mats for the Tukayyid maps going to be Exclusive?
They are not exclusive. All exclusive product will say so very specifically. Doesn't mean they will appear right away. All neoprene maps will appear on the add-on list. Don't forget, Star Colonels get one Strana Mechty BattleMat already.

How many dice bag options are there?
There are two. One Clan, one Inner Sphere.

Are the additional Star/Lance Orbital Drop Stretch goal rewards doubled under DOUBLE FORCES?
We aren't sure if Kickstarter considers them "rewards" by the usual definition, but we will! They will be doubled.

How do the canon character/custom art work? Will this be "us?"
Yes. The whole idea here is that you will become part of the BattleTech universe. As a canon character, you will get to name a character and can provide a short bio. Faction. Unit. Maybe homeward and honors and rank.

We reserve editorial rights to prevent obscenities or internet goofiness. No Boaty McBoatface!

With custom art, we will ask you for a photo to base the sketch on and it will also be used in a sourcebook our other product in order to permanently add your likeness into the lore of BattleTech.

Please be patient. We expect to have several hundred, even a thousand, characters from this. It will take time, and we will naturally start with higher pledge levels. It's a truly incredible undertaking, but we will find a way!

Full Kerensky VS Orbital Drop
Full Kerensky gets 4 Clan/Star Packs from the Orbital Drop as they "Start with double the rewards listed at the KHAN pledge level" Which includes the Orbital Drop!

How will shipping be arranged?
There is a larger shipping section at the bottom of the campaign page, which we will be adding to, but here are some of the basics:

Our plan is to ship the Invasion Box, -at least- the first two Star/Lance packs, and most if not all non-minis rewards on or before March 2020. A few items are specifically exempt from this, but most of those are fiction or digital sourcebooks which we feel will take longer than that to finish.

Second and maybe third waves will be organized once we know exactly how many products there will be to coordinate. Our goal is to get as much into your hands as soon as we can, but the sheer massif minis work will take time to complete.
