Yeah, I have a Striker pledge since day one, and I'd like to add-on only that which I won't be able to buy in retail. It's hard to figure out what will be available for purchase next year and what won't be.

Gabe is totally a limited add on only, right? and Nightshare and Wynn are freebies at Striker but limited after that?

Anything else that's super limited?

You're currently at 160. I don't think the League Sponsor trophies are exclusive, but they might not be easy to get outside the kickstarter, so that's 10 more if you want those. All shirts and dice are exclusive, dice running at 40 for 30(or each set 10 bucks separate for 6 dice), shirts 25 per. I THINK that's all the exclusive this time.

Lead the team to victory!

Just opened up my December Striker slot...hurry.

I was sorta on the fence all along...nothing against the game, Mantic, etc.

Jonathan "Gabe" Gabriel @ $10 is about the only thing not included in Striker that is limited.

As I did not find an answer on the kickstarter page, perhaps someone from here knows it: are there keeper miniatures in the base game or are they only available via extras?
I would like to know it before I update my pledge to a final amount.

Thanks for your help

Thanks a lot, I saw this in the rules section of DB. So the new miniatures for the guards are rather cosmetical and are not in the box I suppose.

keepers are upgrade figures and are available as 2 for $8 or 4 for $15... basically buy one get one free.

Can't believe this ends this Sunday. Hope everyone gets their pledge in on time...

I decided to take the plunge and pledge at the Striker level. Any suggestions for other things to get? Mainly debating if I want to grab some Keepers or an alternate board.. trying to make sure I have a fairly full game, but I don't want to drop $300 either. Thought I'd check with the peanut gallery on Dakka and see if I'm missing any amazing opportunities.

I would start by tossing in at least $25 for the extra teams(You're getting 16 figures at less than $1.60 per. That's better than Striker!). I'm considering getting the MDF playfield, but whether you stick with the one you get in the box or go for a new one's up to you(I'm reserving my judgement until we see the Ultimate playfield.). Also, paints. Don't know how good the ones Mantic's offering are(I'm very new to this), but at 2 bucks a pot for 10 colors, that's a pretty damn good deal.

Lead the team to victory!

I believe they are Army Painter. I just recently got the Mega set from Army Painter and I like them as much as Citadel - except more, since they're cheaper and dropper bottles.

Sad to hear they are Army Painter paints. I tried one and just wasn't impressed by it. Still a great deal for paint though!

(Not saying they are bad paints, I just didn't enjoy painting with the color I was using)

I've been painting for, hmm, 20 years or so. I've almost always used Citadel exclusively. But I'm transitioning to the AP... just a good consistency, color matched to their sprays, easy to use... I like 'em. I still love citadel, but AP will probably get more of my business going forward. Just my review

Well, looks like I'll be indulging in TWO Doubleteams now(now just to figure out the 4th. Currently, Femcorp, Z'zor, and now the Nameless). Also, kudos to Dreadball for getting 'Cthulhu' out earlier than Bones

All these stretches are getting quite expensive when you add them all up! I was all ready to get every model they pump out but at the rate they are going I may need to step back and see which ones I really want.

Ooooooooh Nameless = Great.

Not enough squid-people in wargaming out there. I am really excited for the 'something different' that these teams have been showing. This is turning out so much better than just BB in space.

Very true. I think I may have to drop some of the season 2 teams, because really I don't need all 4 of them. Plus the coaches and keepers are more useful I think. I already am getting more teams then I will use.

great thing is you can pick up all the stuff you want now and still get more in the future when the wallets recovered because all of this stuff will hit retail stores...

I've pledged my maximum and will get the options i want to suit and then probably pick up the rest of the stuff later, though it's a shame I'm going to miss out on the BOGOF which sound like it's continuing over to the Season 3 teams...

Yup the offer continues, $20 for one S2/3 team, or $25 for 2

and a wee bit of detail from Ronnie on the new season 3 pitch add on ($20)

"@Lee - the upgrade ptich for ultimate - obviously Jake is still writing this but the brief he has is that the middle piece must accomodate the exisitng MDF and Acrylic pitch peices (without the central strip) - with 1 addition in the middle. It will be hexagonal connector - so you can set up to 6 'spokes'. We have not put this up as an add-on becuase we don't know exactly what size it will be just yet (such as exact size and makrings/scoring zones) but we know they will fit with the exisitng pitches so you will waste nothing you have spent on (the opposite you will now be able to get more minis on the table!!).
The great news is that before we send out the second delivery we will survety anyone to see if they want the nex connector and offer a special KS price - and by then we will have photos and eveything sorted."

yup, I know how you feel. Worst part for me is that I'm not all too interested in the marauders or FF teams, the veermyn I like and the corp is okay too - still those four (the ones included in striker...) are the ones I'd least want to get my mitts on. I'd happily exchange two or even three of those for other things on the KS but of course those would happen to be the ones included in base striker!... oh well

Holy crap! Can you imagine a 6 way game with 6 'spokes' sticking out?

Also; I can't wait for these races to be in Warpath with proper guns and stuff. Sci fi space gaming is on the verge of a miniatures revolution...

As it is somewhat confusing the $20 Utlimate pitch option is as follows:

Mantic-logo.small
Creator Mantic Games 4 minutes ago

- it will be the 'full' pitch - so for a 6 way hex pitch you'll get the middle section and all 6 spokes really nicely drawn on 1 BIG card board pitch (folded a few times!). You'll need nothing else - that will give you the full 6 player game. With just that $20 pitch and the free the digital rules you have if you have pledged you will be able to play Ultimate - using up to 6 teams, loads of MVPs and monsters - for a massive game of massive carnage!

Well, that's good news about the pitch!

I am not too sure how I feel about monsters, giant pitches, etc. Seems a little out of place. However, it could be fun and hopefully the races will each get a cool and groovy looking mech.

Now hoping for Evil Cat Girl team and Cute Dinos!

Team upgrade packs will be available tomorrow - $12 for 3 extra miniatures and 1 Prone marker. They will be BOGOF although it appears the second pack would be a duplicate of the first from Mantic's comment not a different teams - will have to wait for the official update to be sure.

But...what about JUST getting the Prones individually? I want a pronepack
