I’m not sure on those stretches.
80k seems really far. Certainly big gaps between.
(I guess if they weren’t planned, there’d be costs to get it organised, so it’s fair enough on their end, but for us..)

I did however think we’d be getting the other two missing metals as stretches.

At the very least, including the flamethrower in place of one of the mystics would have been nice.

This bloody flamethrower talk, will we ever get past it?

But on a serious note, yeah it probably would have been a better choice (in place of the second mystic. Not that amazing first one).

Nope. In decades to come, everyone will be reminiscing about where they were when they found out the Stargrave minis didn't come with a flamethrower...

Just treat any of the guns as a flamer. It’s sci fi. Paint it red or something.

Even worse when the kit was redone years later it still didn’t have one.

There’s a ‘filthy casual’ joke lying around here somewhere.
That’s how you wind up with people playing with paper standees and worrying about ‘the narrative’ or some such.

Just kidding, by the way. Sort of annoyed that I hadn’t thought of just making flame weapons red, plasma blue, or whatever. It’s so simple and so workable.

2 flamer thrower dudes in this pic.

Maybe all the stretch goals from here out will be flame throwers?

The community has spoken, and that word was flamethrower! The rules will now be amended to remove all other ranged weapon types

Note:

Unlike previously when you could politely ask to combine orders (made at different times) to save postage NorthStar have said they can't offer to do so for this Nickstarter as it's just generating too many orders (combined with covid social distancing working|)

so either grab everything you might want in one go,

Is that a set you can buy or something, all the metals together?

Seen as we know the goals to 80k, it’ll be a long way before they add in a flamethrower or two, and the other cool looking guy.

Going back to the Cultist frame, if we do get there, irrelevant of the hooded heads etc' I’d probably be sticking some of the alien heads onto them anyway, gotta get as much use from them as possible.
I guess people could use them for Necromunda, though they’d probably come up a bit small.

Assuming they follow the same practice as with Frostgrave and Ghost Archipelago, the metals will eventually come in packs of two for Specialists, and singles for some. Just take a look at the Northstar store for examples.

As for the cultists, they have undead bits on the frame if you want space zombies. Skeletal arm and head with blaster pistol on the other arm.

I’ve got loads of Mantic Plague 3A, the sprues Of 5.
So if stuff like that mixes well, that could be a good one.

Now you’ve got me thinking, I could make this guys up as alternate GCPS builds, so I could have some cool alien figures and use them in Deadzone.
Unfortunately I don’t have any GCPS or that’d be a good source of spares yeah..

Well I think the last Mystic is in the bag.
With the others (and potentially further ones), I guess it’ll depend where we are in 15 days time, as if a rush happens, it still needs a large base to go from to get a lot higher.

Last mystic is in the bag. And still don't have the US and EU orders yet. I think we're gonna smash that 80k

The updates are erratic on this one.

Checked just now, still under 40k, refreshed once, 44k, refreshed again and now it's almost 54k.

I think it's manual updates with updates from US and EU partners added when they come in/have time.

Not quite the same as Kickstarter's up to the millisecond, up to the penny updates.

80k seems very real
Not that I super care about the freebies

My own pledge isn't in yet because I'm waiting for MiniaturicuM to maybe get some more UK stock in before I place my big order but count on me for the book and all unit boxes.

I will be doing same but dreaming of assembly while my pile of shame grows to new heights.

Are there female models in the kit, these could be useful for my Star Wars role playing group.

n'oublie jamais - It appears I now have to highlight this again.

It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion. By the juice of the brew my thoughts aquire speed, my mind becomes strained, the strain becomes a warning. It is by tea alone I set my mind in motion.

I think only the Trooper box has a few female heads, reasoning that with that much carapace armour the bodies can be the same.

Yeah just two or three heads in the troopers.

But then the other two kits are planning on getting a second kit, which will be female variants.
