That's right, there's also Oathmark fantasy plastics. But these Fireforge ones look WAY better than the Oathmark stuff.

Depends on what you're talking about. That's also subjective due to tastes in armor

No doubt the zombies, folk rabble and Northmen will eventually find their way into my collection for various skirmisher, but right now, I better invest in Zealot Miniatures Backerkit and upcoming Relicblade KS.


Yeah, the rules were disappointing.

I was hoping to see the old Warhammer Strength v Toughness table.

I am still happy with my Earlybird, I was thinking about bumping for the rulebook but the rules need so much work that I will wait for reviews.

Oathmark plastic kits are indeed a smaller scale. Also less modular (body in one piece).

That's what Fireforge explained on 9th Age forum, the link is on this topic a few pages before.

It's not just the visual here.

7 hours to go currently at €139,545 resin mounted heroes at €140,000 so they are all but guaranteed and that's it barring any last minute change by Fireforge or an exodus of funds. Plastic heroes at €180,000 are to far a way, at the start I would have thought they would be a given but it didn't pan out that way. but Fireforge has a solid base to build on for the future.

I hope the 102 backers at €1 know that they won't get access to the pledge manager with just €1 they need to buy something now.

No sign of a final 48 bump but it got it's bump 6 and 4 days out €150,000 is still possible

Not sure if that was in any of the updates or not. I certainly found out via the discussions. Still, if they don't allow €1 backers access to the PM (out of a similar sort of attitude that we saw here to Bob) then that's their choice, as ultimately they'll be leaving money on the table.

Still regardless of all the rest and even the potential funding shenanigans, it's good to see that this was successful in the end.

Oh, I've missed some drama here. Such sad, much disappoint. Well, there goes my interest in any project consisting of Fireforge miniatures - down the drain. Congratulations on reaching their goal, that's sure, but I'll never be their customer. Maybe I would not go as far as openly ridiculing anyone even mentioning their company name... I am lazy and not that vocal.

Considering the amount of KSes that lately fail to reach even much smaller goals this was still a remarkable campaign to watch.

Everything negative about Fireforge aside that's been said these last few pages, the do listen to backers.

Latest update has a change of heart about 1€ pledges: you can swap now in Pledge Manager to a higher pledge and late pledges will also be available.
We'll see if they allow for stretchgoals to be unlocked with this. Depends on the demand I guess.

So the whole "no PM" thing was an attempt to force the hand of backers who were on the fence, and now that it's funded (with those large pledges) they're not only going back on that - as I said - people not knowing and money left on the table regardless - they're also allowing late pledges of people.

I guess you can look at one or both as listening to the people, or you can view it a bit (or a lot) more cynically. The late pledges thing really puts it towards the latter.

Makes sense to allow €1 backers to up their pledge as they are nearly 10% of backers - they will be treated as late backers but the update doesn’t say anything about other backers changing pledge level.

We will also allow to who pledged supporter with just 1€ to join late pledge (we discovered that in the last 48hrs, most of them didn't know that we don't allow pledge changes like we wrote in the faqs)


No PayPal in the PM only credit card through Stripe - that shouldn’t be an issue for KS backers as you have to use a credit card to pay KS anyway.

Update in full the Wolf and Dragon shield icons are facing the wrong way they should face the enemy

Spoiler:

Greetings backers!

We are working to start the production as soon as possible. We still have to adjust and fix something (like someone saw about the faction shield, we did a mistake on the side where are turned the symbols). So, what will happen now?

As soon as possible we will launch our post pledge campaign, probably with pledge-manager.com

With Pledge Manager, you will let us know which products taken with your pledge and you will be able to pay for the shipping costs. Probably payments will be processed by Stripe, it will be not possible by Paypal.

With pledge manager we will open for a late pledge to all who asked in these days who didn't joined in time on the campaign.

We will also allow to who pledged supporter with just 1€ to join late pledge (we discovered that in the last 48€, most of them didn't know that we don't allow pledge changes like we wrote in the faqs)

Someone asked about folk rabble: we are still working on them, we are trying to obtain a plastic set that will be useful to get angry peasants/rabble levies and normal villagers to be used in roleplaying games. Naturally we want launch pledge manager only once we will have their layout to show, so everyone will be able to choose folk rabble among their boxes

The same for free frames: we are still in production progress, so the layout can suffer small changes. We will show the final layout of the frames in pledge manager so you will be able to get the frame you need

We are almost ready with starting beta of the rules, everyone who backed for forgotten world starter set or forgotten world rulebook will get an invitation and will receive a pdf with the beta rules.

If you have further infos please write here so we will be able to answer to everyone and everyone will be able to read our answer.

Yup. As I said before this update & info, it leaves a lot of potential money on the table to hold firm with it.

Folk Rabble ready

Greetings backers! Our work on folk rabble plastic set is now complete and following there are some example of the assembled models
The box will content enough parts to assemble normal villagers or rioters, perfect to create your levy unit or for your roleplaying games.
It has been not easy to create a multi-part kit like this, but you will be able to assemble your paesants entirely like workers or fighters, depending by your need.

We will plan after their release some other resin figures to expand your village taking inspiration by your suggestions (children for example).


Nice “dual” kit the extra bits should mix well with the zombies too.

Yeah those are fantastic. Think I'll go 2x zombies, 2x rabble. Which is 72 minis for 64€ plus shipping.

KS is definitely 18 per box. It will be interesting to see the sprue layout to see how they got all the extras on 1 sprue although the other unit sprues are also packed with extras so shouldn’t be an issue. They can do 18 per box for zombies and Folk Rabble as it’s just 1 sprue 3 times - no command sprue.

Can we just take a moment...to celebrate how f-ing pissed off the woman sweeping the floor (bottom right) is? What a great figure. I will agree, any fantasy or historical gamer is going to definitely consider these. I think peasants capable of being armed, or not...is something the gaming community could absolutely find a use for.
