Just wanted to let anyone who was interested, rgdgaming will be releasing four new box sets for April. These sets focus on Satyrs (a previous piece from our faun kickstarter) and a horde of new Amazons, Scythians, and of course, the widely needed steppe horses.

All made in Hard Plastic, with eventual release in the UK and US.

What scale are they? if they are the same size as historicals from Victrix, or the fantasy oathmark and frostgrave ranges I'd be very keen on the amazons.

Whoo boy am I excited for those Satyrs.

A couple of the weapon hafts look unusably frail, but there is plenty to love on that sprue.

I'm excited to get my pledge.

Tall and spindly. Think Wargames Factory, for example Apocalypse Survivors now sold by Warlord.

Might go really well with Shieldwolf girls.

Congratulations on getting these to market!

I can see the tall and spindly part

I'm curious about height though, as advertised scale doesn't always count for much. Assuming they are the same height as Victrix/North Star/ Wargames Atlantic, I could very much see myself getting some of these.

Scythian and Satyr relevance attached.

Amazon slightly shorter than our Scythian counterpart. Amazon was a tough choice because they were described athletically thin, whereas the female scythians could have also had some healthy weight to them. They appear closer to the Fauns in relative height, making them a decent counterpart for the upper historical end, but workable enough to blend in with the Scythian counterpart.

Hard plastic really helped balance look and impact resistance

I will wait to see them in hand, but I am a little concerned that the Amazons seem way smaller than the Scythians... I mean either all the Scythians are 6'6 or the Amazons are all 12 year old girls...

Still look good though.

Just comparing their heads makes them look completely out of scale with each other.

Not a dealbreaker if the Amazons are 28mm and the Scythians are just big chonks, but much more concerning if the Scythians are 28mm.

Yea that looks more like one model in two different scales than two different models in the same scale.

well, I may have gone overboard on this kickstarter.

I had upgraded to the double revised tier which is 8 boxes for $120 + $8 flat shipping.

I am not sure the final numbers as the box art shows 44 minis per box... though what was said in the kickstarter was the Steppe Warhost box comes with 32 Amazons, 32 Scythians and 8 cavalry for 72 minis per box. The Satyr box is 40 Satyrs per box.

So, based on the kickstarter numbers this comes out to

224 Scythians

224 Amazons

56 cavalry that can be Amazon or Scythian

40 satyrs

544 minis total

If the Amazons are small... then I will look to make a sizeable 12 year old girl army... Still looking forward to this.

Basically shooting a box of each, totaling 8 boxes to make that happen.

Comparative shots to warlord minis.

Scythians were an interesting bit, the people were notorious for being pudgy, or thin. They have found people in their 6 feet reach, some others smaller because they might have eaten less. Everything led me to believe the females were quite noticeably smaller than the men, and Amazons being on athletic turf, stood to be particularly thin to their male counterparts. Backers also suggested wanting the males to stand out, as opposed to being on the punier side. Creative compromise was the clothing and firm standing armors.

Amazons look to be a good match for historical minis and the Scythians look more like a fantasy scale.

I'm very excited for some nice big plastics.

Probably also something to note is we should probably offer access to the rider platforms in case one would be prone to be more scythian centric vs amazon vice versa. Was able to print them on Elegoo Mars level printers without much fuss.

Shooting for April. Molds need transport to US, sprues need to be shot, boxes need printing, and boxes need filling, boxes need transporting and some need redirecting.


Have a video meeting with the UK end tomorrow for fulfillment needs.


No exact date can be given till cogs are in place.

I know we have all had a long wait, but we can finally start fulfilling the long-awaited pledges. "


Today's update! So these should be shipping soon. I have 7 Steppe combo boxes and 1 Satyrs box coming.

If you want me to, I could forward a message through the Kickstarter messenger system. That might be something easier to notice?
