Garrison of the Araves for me, but definitely want a box of Valkyries as well.

Should have had a "new plastics two player starter" pledge with valks versus araves.


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

The campaign doesn’t seem to load for me, even though everything else does. Something going on?

Its loading for me on google chrome.

Here is a picture of the Arivises for those who havent looked at the campaign yet. No pics of the Valkyries or other plastic sets yet.

Im in for a a Garrison army for the Arivises... But i want to add some Valkyries and some other stuff too. I am not too fond of the transparent resin that was shown in the scifi kickstarter. Are the camel riders and heroes in that transparent resin? Or are they the gray resin that the cavalry and heroes were in during the shield maiden kickstarter?

Edit: Shield wolf responded. "The transparent resin was the Wolfcast, which will not be used ever again in our KS projects. So yes, everything will be hand-cast in the "white-chocolate" resin like the one you mention like the camel riders, Ogres etc."

This makes me happy.


That's the cream-coloured resin? They're not using the grey resin anymore? That's unfortunate. My Yetis had issues that I ended up not mentioning to them but just fixing myself while I never had any issues with the grey.

they paint up decently, though.

Hmmm. I dont think I ever got any of the cream colored resin. I assumed the "white chocolate" was the grey... Will ask them if I see them in the comments again.

I hope they consider adding some left arms with swords/knives and open right arms to the Aravises. At present there are no left arms with weapons - it would be great for dual wielding weapons, combining bows with knives or just more variety if using a single weapon. Also that drummer arm is a bit awkward as is I think the arm should wrap around the drum. Very glad there's enough quivers to go around Forest Goblins are short on quivers (which is okay if you have multiple boxes but not ideal)

That's a bloody good (and obvious) idea. I've bought the last two KoW Starter sets for that very reason - getting their new HIPS models, but not too many, and not a bunch of extra resins I'm not that interested in.

Good points, Dave. Hopefully they're not too far down the path already. I find SW are super nice people but they can be blinkered sometimes to the bleeding obvious due to their closeness to the project.

You mean any swords/knives left arms, yes? Well, there are so many we can simply "mirror" (that's how we call it) a couple of them to be left handed. With so many it's a non-issue for us (not only because it's a very easy switch but also the sprue space remains the same), BUT we'll need to hear it from everyone before altering anything promised during the project :-)

I saw that okay and added a comment backing the idea but KS comments can disappear down the list quick enough. I guess they want enough backers to ask for it before committing to a change.

Also saw a post on Ninth Age forum that if it gets far enough they'll swap the 5 camels for 15 HIPS ones but it needs serious funding to happen.

Well, if they're keeping track, I'll put my hand up for arm swaps to make the kit a lot more versatile.

How about a bit of a poll (with thanks to Smokestack)

Yes, we'll ask you all on the very first update, at first glance it's a good/solid suggestion and that's what we like about crowdfunding;

we create all this together! :-)

They do now €100 starter sets added although it’s basically 2 €50 sets put together with double Valkyries instead.

There seems to be more forest goblin heroes than I remember having, I'll have to go to the basement of shame and check which I'm missing.

Hi everyone!
We try monitor most forums and read the feedback; it's true we have been more rigid to changes in the past, mainly due to our not wanting to risk going out of schedule and derailing from what we have initially promised. That said, we have learned to listen and with the augmented experience in delivering projects we are much more comfortable now in small deviations from our initial planned schedule.

With very slight variations this is also true. The main draw to the 2-player starter sets is they are eligible to the Gold rewards instead of the Silver ones, so when a miniature unlocks for a certain faction these are more probable to be added it for free to their pledge.
As for the left handed weapon option, we will have a poll in our very first update (going up after the first 24 hours since launch), it's best we have the OK from everyone at the very start so nobody misses it! It was a very solid suggestion and we would be happy to apply the change should all backers ask for it.
Once again we appreciate the consideration and support!

The first update is up and has a poll for some left handed options.

Also interesting note from Shieldwolf that the valkyries will deliver this July!

"..we will be delivering everything (including the Valkyries plastic kits) this July, it's only the Araves faction that's going to be delivered on December this year."

I see you asked and they answered about split shipping. Shipping is low enough that if you have 2 KS accounts it might be worth putting the Araves on one account and the rest on another. I might do that myself as I have a second account.

Also thanks to Shieldwolf for taking the feedback and suggestions appreciate it.

I am wondering if the Valkyrie wings will fit on the paladins to make some battle angels.

The arivises dont have cloaks or backpacks, so I am guessing the wings wont fit on them.

response from Shieldwolf. "We haven't tried that but our guess would be yes, size wise at least. Probably not an "exact" fit, but with a tiny greenstuff work they should match nicely. Do you have something in mind?

Blizzard's Tyrael comes to mind, using wings from the Valkyries, body and weapons from the paladin Sisters and one of the cloaked head versions from the Shieldmaiden kit?"

I love the wings but I LOVE those helmets. I hope they include enough for every Valkyrie to wear a helmet.

Thank you. 16 helmets per 20 minis in total, spears for all models.
Standing by for video reviews, we are expecting them this week!

Hm. Not funded yet. That's a real shame. :(

I think not having at least renders and (realistically) 3d prints of the Valkyries - both "raw" as well as assembled and professionally painted before the campaign was an unfortuate choice. Just having silhouettes (and now, a week or so into the campaign, half-painted assembled models in an awkward angle) isn't the best way to sell people on giving their money.

Having the same finished raw-and-painted prototypes for the Araves would also have made a lot of sense...
