IMO it's the sharp creases in the clothing, it makes it seem like the person underneath must be rail thin.

Here's an overall detailed view of all the pledges.
It's a 2 week campaign, here's hoping we fund and get to unlock as many stretch goals as possible.



Thank you.

Is getting to plastic a goal? I didn’t see that in the campaign though they only list “coming soon” under stretch goals. Under the “what are the miniatures made of” section it just lists their resin.

If plastic might be coming then I will get on board.

On the other hand have you seen how many companies have done Mandalorian inspired models? Ninja Division included!

Not a huge Star Wars fan myself so it's an easy skip for me, but I do like they've got rules for both Rail Raiders and Super Dungeon included.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

They have referred on their facebook that resin is the start but plastic would be a stretch based on actual participation, although how much of a realistic stretch that is, is what remains to be seen.

they're not putting it officially as it's caused problems before

The experience from our previous projects has taught us not to promise ahead of time, as that has caused more harm than good.

We take it little by little and go as far as we can, it all depends on the backers!


it may not be realistic here but I've got my fingers crossed it goes well enough that they might consider it for the troops at least

He's in the wrong thread - looks like he's talking about Soda Pop's latest "homage" - a not-Leia model for Super Whatever Walkabout.

Blame it on the lizard brain...

As far as this campaign goes, have to decide how much I want to commit here!

Ah okay.
I like the overall look of these, but likea lot of current KS the current worldwide situation and crashed AU$ makes it a bit expensive for me. besides, as much as I'd like HIPS plastic, the last thing I need is more resin troops in anoither unique style right now (I have a kill team or two worth of DKOK, but never went in hard to make an army etc) so I'll keep an eye on it as much as I can...

I'd like to back since the shieldmaidens came out pretty well but paying more than gw price per infantry model for resin guardsmen just isn't something I'm in for. I'll keep an eye out and if they go HIP's I'd likely be in for most of an army. Just can't justify it in any other material.

Depending on the price if they get enough of the ogre models I might grab a big unit of them. That'll be it unless the troops at least go plastic. I'd love to have the infantry in HIPs.

Since 99% will use these as imperial guard, there are plenty other options for a tank to stick him in.

Hehe! :-)

Tanks haven't unlocked yet but they have been planned for. They will be add-ons but the further we reach before revealing them the lower the tag price they'll have (because the difference will be ulteriorly been funded via the kickstarter!)."

How does the machine gunner swivel his weapon? Also, nice to see someone finally found a use for a NordicTrack.

There seems to be a swivel point at the mounting point, but with those rails you'd only get around 5 degrees total of arc. Not the best design but as I'm poor now I can't back it so my opinion, rightly, doesn't matter much.

Probably not ideal for mobile opps, but for trench warfare with defined overlapping fire lanes they should be ideal (and makes sure the gunner doesn't get carried away and 'chase' targets rather than covering what he's been told to cover

(but I might be tempted to remove the 'horns' from the mount to give a wider field of fire, simple enough with resin)

(note the bulwark ogres are separate minis from the earlier ones, NOT just an alternate shield arm that would mean you'd have to chose which to build)


so silver level backers get 4 extra minis and a bit of scatter terrain
gold level backers get 17 extra minis and a bit of scatter terrain (or more if you're getting an artillery option where there are extra crew too)

Not sure what the Commandant is doing. Shouldn’t his pinky also be extended?

That Bulwark Ogre looks way better, imo! Models that chunky need a big shield... maybe they'll offer the shield as an add-on piece so you could build the other three ogres with it, as well?
