They are on a boat with the urbie lance, proliferation pack, and iirc the Target box. So expect them around that time.

The last ama covered this briefly, Cubby (I think) said it was ~2 months out.

Yeah, I got an email saying that they had unlocked the items I requested.  It took a day or so, which is understandable as they have to do these one at a time manually and I'm sure they got thousands of requests.  Given that they are probably getting more and more every day as more emails are sent I wouldn't worry about it unless it has been more than two days since you sent the message.

Such good news. I didnt get any of them in the Kickstarter because I didn't want to wait a year on something that is already out. Didn't want to make the same mistake as I did with the Clan Invasion Kickstarter

Did my survey, excited for the eventual loot.  Question:  what about the surveys for those of us who got sets of the gimped dice from the last KS?  I bought four pair of those, but there was no where in the survey to indicate that.

I thought about that, but, in the end, I wanted to do what I could to hit the next goals, and, I have too many minis waiting for paint anyway, lol.

*wince*

I always feel guilty when I spend large amounts of money on myself. (Especially since once the parents are gone, I am likely going to be struggling, but it's not like I can fricking save any, are it, not these days?)

But, well. Having had it take literally six months for a restock for stuff from the first kickstarter to come into stock, I looked at the indie eight bundle and sighed.

I might have to pack them a bit tight, but in theory it's only three tins on top of what I've got all told. Now, I won't say that I MIGHT have a pile of shame for a bit this time next year, since it wil take a lot of painting.



On the other hand, Rimworld is very cheap for umpteen hundred hours and there are now no PC games on the horizon that are not themselves in Kickstarter I give two fracks about any time this year; so and currently my remaining entertainment budget for the year might be stretching to £7 for the Gog version of X-Wing alliance, assuming there's not a sale before I finally get to it, so. Yeah.

And to be clear, it's two different vehicles, unless you pull a Long Tom then you get both pieces in the box.

Done my BackerKit survey, and kept myself cool, not picking too many add-ons. It was really hard to pass on the battlemats, but had to. With any luck they will appear at the online shop I use in my UE country someday and if I can I will pick them up.

Now I only need to gather willpower for the last days of the pledge manager when they reopen it so that I will not give in to temptation.

The dices.

I went the safe way. Some packs interest me just for 1 mech so I'll just hope I get it through salvage boxes, notably the goliath, though if I don't get it I'll simply buy it at the hobby store that can get some battletech stuff (gotta buy 1 or 2 things from there, keep the interest going in the line). Also that hermes...no way I'm paying for a pack since I already own every mech, but having my kid throw a tantrum whenever someone uses the hermes, and I'm a sucker for the hermes III, I'm praying Hermes to get a hermes.

So I just got the recon lance for mechs, need those javelin and firestarter, they're all I'm missing to have an option for every desire. I stocked on vehicles, all my needs will be met, more then enough for proxying...though I might be tempted in a forcepack with many wheeled AFV in a later project, JUST IN CASE we play some alpha strike someday. Choosing between the goliath and the VTOLs was a real soul tearing choice, which my players will resent, but again, if needed, local hobby store. No add-ons, thought about the family budget that I've already, with much shame I must add, gimped by discovering FoW and finding the core rules can be used by a kindergardner (with much overseeing and a handicap in force points for the opposing team, fun for the whole family! If only the wife was not so allergic to all that is not realistic, I'd try alpha strike), stayed safe, no funny buisness. Was kind of proud of myself.

But the dices.

When the pledge manager re-opens, temptation will be strong indeed.

Thank god for the BT forum that enables one to vent his miniature wargame related sins.

It'll unlock eventually, or just ask them to unlock if you want to do it before then.

Nice. I held about $40 back for shipping. Time for revisions once the pledge manager opens again.

So, plastic vs DIY kit from before? ...

I thought I was done, but when the PM opens for a last look see I'll probably add a Union, maybe go for the bigger one.

So, as some people have completed and locked their pledges, I just want to verify: Did your money get taken right away? Or are you still waiting? I know supposedly it is supposed to take payment upon lock, but I would love to have verification from real people, not hypothetical "It is supposed to work this way..."

Been 5 days since I messaged on KS about getting it unlocked. No reply, but I'm already getting reminder emails to complete the Backerkit. Argh...

Wish I knew the mass of the Overlord. I've got one of the resin ones, but if this one's lighter and it's feasible to give it a removable flying horizontal flying mount, I'd be very tempted.

Also, does anyone know if the other DropShips are available through this, plastic or otherwise? I didn't get the Fortress during the last one.

The fortress is still available from IWM. But I don’t remember seeing it on the KS page, but I also wasn’t looking.
