Short Verson: Kasi(Nether Assassin) and Lumi(Ruby) are available. The other three are pre-order. Not sure about free minis, but I've sent them an email.

EDIT:Only posting the first two. The rest are downloads, so if anyone can add actual JPEGs....

We are manufacturing the Way of the Fighter miniatures in batches as funds become available. However, manufacturing costs are only one of the costs associated with fulfillment. Shipping costs are the final hurdle. To help with these costs and to get you miniatures as quickly as we can we are adopting two strategies:
1.When new miniatures are manufactured we will announce them here and on Kickstarter. We will then automatically include any available miniatures with your future ninjadivision.com orders.
2.Miniatures that are going into manufacturing will be available for preorder by fans who missed them on Kickstarter. The profits from these preorders, as well as from future sales of the miniatures, will go towards shipping the models to backers who have not made an order through ninjadivision.com.

(Please Note: We will ship as many rewards as we can based on the earnings from presales. We will then use profits from the continued sale of Way of the Fighter and Masterclass miniatures to ship remaining rewards that presales did not cover. We cannot guarantee the timeline of these shipments because they will be entirely as funds become available.)

Molds have been made for all five of these miniatures. Kasi and Lumi have completed manufacturing. Preorders will close at the end of the month and we will then complete their manufacturing run and begin shipping. (Kasi and Lumi will continue shipping worldwide with ninjadivision.com orders since they have already completed manufacturing.)

Should this strategy prove successful we will explore the potential of adopting it for our other resin line Relic Knights.

We thank you for your patience and your continued support as we continually look for solutions to provide all of our backers with their rewards. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at info@ninjadivision.com. We are delighted to be able to begin providing you with your rewards!

Did anyone back the Starfinder minis KS by Ninja Division now taken over by Prodos? Alternately, does anyone care about updates for it? No sarcasm meant but I'm genuinely curious if I should continue to post them here. Fwiw, a poll was out up to see which minis they should work on next.

New Releases for Super Dungeon!

This week sees the release of six incredible new models for your Super Dungeon collections. Most exciting of all is the release of one of the five Princesses of Prophecy, Citrine!



Princess Citrine

With her commanding presence, Citrine found her calling as a warrior and general. She possesses a keen insight for battlefield maneuvers, and her boisterous and bawdy personality ingratiated her immediately with the soldiery. Joining her father on many campaigns, her mere presence serves as a rallying cry to the soldiers of Crystalia and her strength at arms turns many a battle in the King’s favor.



Chuy and Apprentice

Blasting their way south from Arcadia alongside Steelhorse Candy, Chuy and his misfit sidekick, known only as The Apprentice, have an uncommon knack for stirring up trouble. The minions of the Dark Consul have become obsessed with The Apprentice's capture. No doubt they are drawn to the young Apprentice Mage's unique connection to the magicks of Crystalia.

Chuy and Apprentice are Limited Edition miniatures that can be used in your games of Super Dungeon and Rail Raiders Infinite!



Witch Exterminator

The sprawling metropolis of Areals at the heart of Clockwork Cove is a twisting labyrinthine city of technological wonder and ceaseless change. As new structures are built upon the old, less savory denizens begin to fill the abandoned districts and subterranean depths of the city. When infestations of chimeric rats, Undercove goblins, and malfunctioning clockworks grow too large Witch Exterminators are called in cull their numbers and maintain the safety of the city.



Faris

Dedicated to bringing the killer of his uncle to justice, Faris has developed the skills of a hunter. Always patient, a master of tracking, and unerring once the prey is in his sights—all traits shared by the renowned Princess Emerald



Jun

A major otaku and video game enthusiast, Jun is no stranger to cosplay and loves attending conventions dressed as her favorite characters. She is always drawn to adorable witches, such as the Sanctioned Witch, and their lovely, pointy hats.

Note: Faris and Jun are both part of the Way of the Fighter Kickstarter. Their sale will function in the same manner as the last wave of Way of the Fighter miniatures. Details can be found here.

Good luck with that model not getting blocked. Disney stopped CMoN from making the Princess Leia model for Zombicide after the initial showing of it. I don’t see Ninja Division getting away with it.

Disney could pump a little cash into the IP and make tons of money, but probably not worth their time. They would just crush them to protect their own IP.

Latest KS update - At least the Master series has kept them afloat and releasing a new print on demand SDE core game with existing miniatures should help fund the 2nd edition that we are owed.

Soda Pop Kickstarter Update

Posted by Soda Pop Miniatures
Jul 29, 2020
External link.png?ixlib=rb 2.1
View on Kickstarter
Hello Backers

This update is going out across all three of our Kickstarters: Way of the Fighter, Relic Knights, and Super Dungeon and contains an update on what has been happening at Soda Pop and Ninja for the last several months, and updates for all three Kickstarters.

A little over a year ago our publisher Ninja Division launched the resin Masterclass Miniatures line, with the aim of stabilizing Ninja Division and Soda Pop and working towards the twin goals of fulfilling Kickstarter while providing you, our fans, with new miniatures to collect, paint, and play with.

In these goals, Masterclass has shown immense promise and proved successful in moving us forward, albeit at a “slow and steady wins the race” pace. Masterclass has succeeded in stabilizing Ninja Division and Soda Pop, and provided us room to expand upon Masterclass in its second year and begin accelerating towards the achievement of our goals.

In discussions with fans over the course of the last year, we have found that one of the biggest hurdles for Masterclass and all of our games is that there is no easy way to play! Indeed, the gap between Forgotten King’s stocks drying up and 2nd Edition’s delay and the inability to get out the Relic Knights starter were the proverbial “cracks in the dam” which led to the flood. To that end, we are adopting several new strategies to provide you with gameplay options for your existing collections and for future Masterclass miniatures.

Here is how each Kickstarter campaign is affected, and how we are working to get you playing—

Way of the Fighter
Way of the Fighter fans are fortunate, in that you already have all of your game materials and are able to enjoy fast and furious fighting action. The only outstanding items for Way of the Fighter are the miniatures.

Masterclass has allowed us to complete manufacturing for ALL of the Way of the Fighter x Super Dungeon miniatures. We have also completed approximately 50% of the traditional Way of the Fighter miniatures, and are in the process of manufacturing the remainder.

Currently, backers who make any order through Ninja Division’s webstore automatically have any rewards we have manufactured included with their order. In this way, hundreds of backers all over the world have already received their miniatures, while also getting a cool new item. You don’t need to do anything. We check each order specifically.

As we close in on completing production of the traditional Way of the Fighter miniatures, we are working on our plans to send final rewards to all backers and complete Way of the Fighter fulfillment. Timelines are constantly fluid because they are inextricably linked to Masterclass sales. As such, we can not provide a firm timeline for this final fulfillment step, but it’s getting close. In the meantime, checkout our KS Backer discount code down below for a way to get your items right away!

Relic Knights
Building on the success of the Way of the Fighter model, we are bringing it to Relic Knights to begin getting miniatures in your hands! In fact, we’ve already begun the miniature build up on the first round of products.

Beginning in October, we will be including manufactured plastics, resins, rulebook digest, and card decks into any order a backer makes through ninjadivision.com. Like Way of the Fighter, we will include these items automatically, and any items being fulfilled in this manner will also be available for purchase through our store. Just like all Masterclass purchases, revenue from these products will go towards base expenses to keep Ninja and Soda Pop moving forward and the production of new items to continue the process.

While miniatures are great, the first priority is the rulebook digest and card decks. We want to make sure that you have the materials you and your friends need to start playing!

Super Dungeon
This brings us to Super Dungeon. Needless to say, the size of Super Dungeon makes it the biggest challenge. And since it is all plastic, fulfillment in tiny bites like Way of the Fighter and Relic Knights is currently not feasible.

However, we do have two very exciting ways to allow you to begin playing games with your collection of Super Dungeon miniatures and with future Masterclass releases.

SUPER DUNGEON: CONQUEST

Next week sees the launch of a new range of Super Dungeon Masterclass Miniatures — Super Dungeon: Conquest.

Super Dungeon: Conquest is a skirmish system designed for your Masterclass miniatures. As an extension of the Masterclass line, Conquest provides us with a game system that veterans and purchasers of Masterclass can use their existing collections to play, while allowing us to push the boundaries of Masterclass with new miniature designs and concepts that aren't restricted to the board game. We can also explore more of the world of Crystalia through new stories and new ways to play.

Please note. Conquest will exist purely as a living rulebook. We are investing no capital into Conquest beyond what would already go into Masterclass’ continued expansion.

Last, but certainly not least, we LOVE this style of skirmish campaign game. Super Dungeon: Arena and Ninja All-Stars beat around the edges of it and we felt both of them deserved a worthy successor.

SUPER DUNGEON: EXPLORE - DEVIL ISLAND

Super Dungeon: Explore - Devil Island is designed specifically to get players the core materials you need to play games of Super Dungeon: Explore as affordably as possible.

Devil Island is a complete game and will include all the rulebooks, cards, dice, dungeon tiles, and miniatures that any player needs to play Super Dungeon: Explore. Unique within Devil Island is the Devil Island Adventure Book. This campaign for Super Dungeon: Explore includes narrative adventures, hero quests, unique equipment that Heroes retain from game-to-game, consul power-up cards, new dungeon tiles, and more!

The miniatures from this set will be drawn from the existing range for Clan Ijin, Momotaro and other heroes from Kagejima, and also include Saru, a new exclusive Masterclass miniature.

We are incredibly excited about this set and the possibilities it opens up for Super Dungeon going forward!

Please note. The resources required to create this print-on-demand product, which utilizes existing miniatures and Masterclass miniatures, are in no way equivalent to that of manufacturing and fulfilling the Super Dungeon: Explore 2nd Edition core game. Nor is it a replacement for that reward. Devil Island is us finding creative and cost efficient ways to provide both backers and new customers an easy entry point into playing Super Dungeon: Explore 2nd Edition.

To supplement Devil Island, we will also release a print edition of the Super Dungeon: Explore 2nd Edition core rules. This print edition will include the rulebook, mighty monster chart, tokens, and all essential cards you need to play Super Dungeon. It is designed to be easily playable by anyone with a collection of Super Dungeon miniatures and some common gaming materials such as 1-inch gridded dungeon tiles and six-sided dice. Super Dungeon Legends backers will be able to get this print edition of the core rules at cost.

Super Dungeon: Explore - Devil Island will launch this September. Super Dungeon: Legends Kickstarter backers will receive a discount on Devil Island. We want these entry points to be a way to get you the materials you need to play as efficiently and affordably as we possibly can.

SUPER DUNGEON GOING FORWARD

Super Dungeon’s release cycle will be focused around new Masterclass releases for Conquest, Explore, and Arcade. More specifically, they will all be focused on giving you and your friends ways to play.

Super Dungeon: Conquest will get new and revised rules through its living rulebook. These will be supported by its growing range of Conquest specific Masterclass miniatures.

Super Dungeon: Explore - Devil Island will be followed by Super Dungeon: Arcade - Rocktop Rumble. Additional releases will focus around gameplay releases, including Masterclass miniatures, adventures, and campaign supplements (including adventures from the Kickstarter and released to you).

Thank You!
We know the Kickstarter road has been rough and rocky. The Dark Consul and the Darkspace Calamity have been in full force for some time now, however we here at Soda Pop and Ninja Division do not know the word “defeat” and continue pushing ever forward.

We would like to thank all of you for your patience, the kind words of encouragement we have received, and for your support of the Masterclass miniature line and us. You have made it so that the first year of Masterclass has been a success that we can build on together.

As you can see, our emphasis for this second year of Masterclass is on getting you ways to play games with your collections. The success of these plans, and their ability to continue making gains towards Kickstarter fulfillment, relies a great deal on you playing games and enjoying the new content we are working hard to create for you. The more people we have playing games the faster we can move to each fulfillment step and ultimately move on to the next exciting adventure!

Thank you.

I guess the others that they messed up don't count anymore. *starfinder* cough *starfinder* I suppose they consider their hands washed of their mess on that one since they pawned it off on Prodos/Archon.

Summary from DaveC(sorry. Love ya, but some people don't wanna read anything by 'em these days):

WotF: 50% of minis done, rest being worked on.

Relic Knights: Producing first wave out the butt. Dropping in OCT, Esper decks, upgrade cards and book first priority.

Super Dungeon(this is a woozie):

Conquest: Squad based game involving Masterclass minis.
Rules are 'living'. Dunno about cost.
First minis could be dropping next week. Minis may only work for Conquest.

Devil Island: New Starter.
Seems to be themed around Momotaro, contains Ijin clan, three ronin(Momo, Ondori and Inu) and a new masterclass hero(definitely a monkey).
Not sure if Bomechan and Yobuko get hero cards or are strictly monsters.
Contains Adventure book similar to Legends quests.
Drops in SEPT.
Will not replace 2.0 or Legends. Backers get discount.

Rocktop Rumble- released after Devil Island. Arcade set. No further info.

2.0: Rulebook, cards and chart for Explore. Not sure about release(KS exclusive or what?)

Orlando, Warboss- I remember someone from Paizo saying someone messed things up. It was definitely someone from ND, but not the higher ups.

I find the SDE update confusing. So they're producing a "new" SDE game - using minis from the Ninja game? Also a "skirmish" SDE game - that I'm not really sure how that works? 1on1 fights? And then another at some point in the future.

Are those using the new SDE 3.0 rules that were to be coming from the KS?

Honestly it's been so long since I backed Legends that I don't even really remember what is supposed to be coming.

Looking at their site - wow they've put out a TON of new minis for SDE that I haven't seen.

It's a shame - I really used to love the SDE look and even liked how they were slowly building out the world and the fluff. But things are such a mess now - and there's so much stuff all over - that even if I ever do get my pledge I've lost all interest.

They went too hard and too fast IMO - SDE was in a much better, more sustainable way pre the Kickstarter.

Yes, it seems they're releasing a game format for "league" play, like NAS or "Blood Bowl", but for SDE, based on the NAS Ijin Clan.

But the Kickstarter SDE is 2.0, not 3.0, and Devil Island is supposed to use 2.0 rules.

I've been trying very hard to stay on top of all the changes, but they've put out more models to make money and really squandered the opportunity to expand the world, other than their novels, which I refuse to read.

Was Forgotten King 2.0 though and Legends was a new version of the rules (because people didn't like the 2.0 rules)?

I feel like splitting the rules and deciding to expand everything was a big part of what got them in so much trouble in the first place.

Legends is supposed to be like an RPG. 2.0 is after Forgotten King. Devil's Island is going to be a new starter.

Also, you guys didn't know they redid NAS figs for SD? They've been doing that for three years now.

Short version- the numbering gets messy. The Forgotten King rules are the ones that fans don't like, the 2.0 rules are actually the 3rd edition of the game.



Long version:

Super Dungeon Explore 1 was published by CMON. When SPM split with CMON, they created a second edition of the game with all new monsters, heroes and tiles. The starter for the game's second edition is The Forgotten King (and it is generally considered the worst of the SDE rules sets, though the fan made "lootimeter mode" restores the good parts of first edition).

They decided that they wanted to update the original box to the new rules (with updated minis and tiles). So they presented "Super Dungeon Explore 2nd edition" as an update of the original starter box to the Forgotten King rules. Also, they made it a bit smaller as a starter set, so that they could charge less for it. This was presented as part of the Super Dungeon Legends Kickstarter.

They planned to create some small tweaks to the Forgotten King rules through an open beta- but the fans made it clear that they'd prefer a more drastic overhaul of the FK rules. So the SDE 2.0 rules became a true 3rd edition of the game (but no one changed the name). While the rules have only been available in PDF format, most fans prefer this set of rules above all the previous ones (including some fan made tweaks.

Also, as part of this process, they separated out the coop rules for the game (the Forgotten King set contains both coop and PvP modes of play). So their Super Dungeon Legends box set was now meant to contain the Super Dungeon Legends expansion/game as well as two new core sets for Super Dungeon (Explore= 1vAll and Arcade=Coop).



Unfortunately, they failed to deliver all of these nice things and don't have the money for the plastic production involved. Players who want to play with the current rules set have been doing some print and play.



- And that brings us to the present. If they can grow SDE back to where it once was, they would be able to deliver on the Kickstarter promises, but the game really can't grow without core sets. So they're taking some of the items they have in excess from their previous releases and cobbling together two new core boxes (Rocktop Rumble for Arcade and Devil's Island for Explore mode). We know that the Devil's Island will also include a resin mini (probably a boss).

These two box sets will use mostly the plastic minis that they have on hand and combine them with new tiles and some new resin minis to fill out a core set to play. The idea is to make it so that people who want to play the game do not have to go print their own components (and to have a core product available for new players).


I honestly think it is a good move. I'm waiting to see what the price is, but I admit that as a fan of the game, I will consider getting it.

Maybe they shouldn't have spent the money collected on Starfinder apparentl on their other delinquent projects in a crowdfunding version of musical chairs where everyone but them loses... It's like they learned all the wrong lessons from their interactions with Palladium on Robotech Tactics.

Interesting ...

Weird that it's not using SDE mechanics though (uses D10 dice!)

And I don't see how it lets you use your existing collection to play. That works out OK for bad-guy factions (where a spawn point would have a few types of themed mobs that would conceivably work as grunt-type soldiers) - but one of the starter sets is "knights" - and from the rulebook it seems like only 1-2 of the existing heroes can be added to the starter set. (Where-as the undead have a lot more options)

I like that they minis need to be put together - and surprised that they actually come with some alt heads/weapons/pose-ability.

But $60 for a starter set with 8 minis in it is yowch. (Especially since 3 of those are spawn points). And I just don't see many people clamoring for a very small-scale chibi skirmish game.
