So, I am not a happy camper.

Yeah got an email that I under paid shipping. I paid 45 Euro for my 2 early birds which was already more than the shipping they quoted in the campaign. Now they want 35 euro more 3 weeks after shipping has started, more than 6 months after I filled out the pledge manager where you told me that my shipping was paid... and add insult to injury you reset my pledge manager and tell me to fill it out again, but only put one of my rewards in it because "double early bird" has to be manually loaded. This is a joke. WTF!!!

If my shipping really is 80 euro then I will be asking for a refund.

I got the email as well (as did a lot of others) but as it was just €1.50 extra I paid it. But I wouldn't be happy about my postage nearly doubling either.

They've handled this badly and should have notified backers in advance rather than sending a private message. I actually thought it was a scam email at first but all the details checked out in my saved PM link.

I get that miscalculating shipping can sink a project but there must have been a better cheaper way of compromising with international backers.

UPDATE: Fireforge say they didn't send it, Pledgemanager are now saying they will cover the extra shipping with an additional credit you just need to reconfirm your pledge something odd going on at Pledgemanager?

I was already charged double what the listed estimate was on the campaign page and now I am supposed to add another 50%.

Fireforge has been aware of the issue for a few hours now, if they didn't sent this email then their FIRST action should be sending out a KS update warning people not to pay. Not sitting around "investigating" while people who didn't check KS comments are inputting their credit card info again.

Update clarifies what happened

long story short they discovered that the PM under charged some backers by up to half of what their shipping costs. It appears that Pledge Manager did not input the correct shipping costs FF sent them. It's enough to put them under financial pressure so they asked Pledge Manager to seek additional Voluntary payments from backers to cover the short fall. Pledge Manager issued the email before FF had a chance to communicate this to backers and they omitted the voluntary part. Basically if you want to pay it pay it if not contact Pledge Manager and they will apply a credit to cancel the additional charge. This will not affect your shipping. If you paid and want it back contact Pledge Manager about it.

Surely if Pledge Manager didn't put in the shipping costs FF gave them then they should be coughing up the missing cash ?

they shouldn't even be asking for voluntary contributions as it's all down to them

I thought the first email was a scam too.

I don't mind paying a little extra for postage, but I don't want to do it with my credit card.

Repeating what I said in the KS comments page...

I'm a UK backer on a 3 box pledge = €1 more for me. I don't mind paying that. Although I feel for those in the US with massive increases.

The main problem: I know my credit card will now get put on cancel as my bank seems to *always* view $1.00/$€1.00 transactions from abroad as test payments for stolen credit card numbers.

I'm off to await my next payment anywhere being cancelled and a long phone call to the bank. :-(

Also a couple resin heroes and a frostgrave wizard for comparison.

They look very good but the 2 non wizard heroes look very out of scale with the plastics? I'll have mine tomorrow so I'll have a proper look then. I got this for plastics so the resin heroes don't bother me one way or another but it would be nice if they matched size wise.

I have them now only had a quick look but plastics are great well cast, good details, nice and chunky IMO they are a step up from their historicals.

I’ll have to see how they scale with other models later but I don’t think it will be an issue.

I already plan on getting some more and I’d back another KS for the other human faction.

Here is a dark elf executioner on a 30mm base, a manticores fish guy on 30mm, and 2 nemarti on 32mm bases. And a gw greatsworn in a 25mm base.

They're definitely "Oldhammer" scale (i.e. larger than some...but will all be dwarfed by AoS size increases). They showcased old Empire minis next to them when they launched the Kickstarter. Their chunky/heroic proportions are extremely GW-esque too (not a bad thing, personally). I want several boxes for kitbashing for dungeon crawls.

So, next to a Stormcast they are definitely tiny. But next to a chaos guy they aren’t bad. I put him on top of s 30mm base to that the base heights would be the same.

I backed this to get the not-Starks as my generic men at arms for D&D, and my peasants and zombie peasants for same. Through the zombie peasants might get redirected to serve as extra fodder for my Vampire Counts army.

I nearly pre-ordered the "peasants" box to find out to my horror it's the ZOMBIE peasants (but you can't see that unless you really zoom in). I would have been so freakin' mad if, in a few month's time, I got a box of zombies instead of (what I assumed I was ordering) the peasants...!!!

That's is some TERRIBLE UI right there. Damn.

I play...

Sigh.

I mean...aren't all peasants going to end up as zombies eventually?

At least they didn't pull a Warlord Games and just issue the same box with different cover art.

No only the Living Dead Peasants (Zombies) are up for preorder, Backers are due to get the Folk Rabble (Living Peasants) late 2019 as they are in wave 2 so it could be early 2020 before they go on general release. Fireforge haven't called them anything other than Folk Rabble and the Zombies as Living Dead Peasants so from their point of view the website is correct but I can see how it would cause confusion.

I had placed a hefty order during the KS, but the pledge manager screwed it all up and I was kicked out!! Luckily, I was able to place all as a late pledge (with the KS exclusive goodies), but now that I no longer have a backer number, I have no clue when I will get mine - and, for insult to injury, I cannot even add comments on their KS page, since I am no longer considered a backer.
