Ha ha. None of us backers have got any Kickstarter extras yet, so you aren't missing out on anything

Backers are getting a massive amount of content at the end of the year (depending on backer level, obviously), but most of it is going to retail too, so nothing to worry about.

The best news is, the game is absolutely brilliant out of the box.

I don't think you miss much of anything. Did you get the alternate Leader ("Maxine") in your set? I thought maybe she was a KS bonus, but she has no rules at all: she's just a different mini and card you can use for a Leader.

Other than that, almost all the extra content was a Kickstarter add-on (in other words, people paid for it) and will be available to you as well. Unless Emergent can't afford to produce them for retail, perhaps.

The stuff that isn't available later is the dog specialist ("Herc"), the female variant squad ("Fireteam Delta," again with no different rules or abilities), and the two Multi-Squad Packs.

That last thing is a pair of special sets that let you combine two sets of region tiles to make a bigger map and have two squads fighting two families of monsters. Honestly, I can't imagine making this happen. 8P epic Fireteam Zero? Sounds like a bit of a fantasy.

So you didn't miss nothing, but you missed almost nothing. All the regular expansions and bonus sets are intended to be available.

I think this will be the real difficulty. Not necessarily getting it to retail but once that first print is done, I don't think it'll be easy to get stuff reprinted unless they do another KS. Pure speculation on my part but Emergent Games doesn't have any other game at this moment. So, my advice is to pick stuff up from retail as soon as you can.

Night fell and the hours dragged on, but still we murmured to each other of the King and the Pallid Mask, and midnight sounded from the misty spires in the fog-wrapped city.

We spoke of Hastur and of Cassilda, while outside the fog rolled against the blank window-panes as the cloud waves roll and break on the shores of Hali.

Kind of wishing I'd sprung for fireteam delta, but even heavy assault was pushing my budget shake cry

Aaaah, I wondered why eBay wasn't awash with exclusive stuff. That's the explanation

Cheers, peeps. I'll keep a keen eye out.

Dare I expose my ignorance and ask what Meeplemart is?

It is a local game store in Toronto, Canada. Carries a ton of games.

I was actually looking through this again because I did order the Female Variant which is KS exclusive and I believe the Specialist that comes with this pack is unique to this pack. If you scroll down the KS page to the Specialist section they have Griota "Majka" Novak as an example beside Herc the dog, another specialist. Herc is definitely KS exclusive and Griota only seems to appear in Fireteam Delta as far as I can see.
