Hi everyone once more,
We have plenty news this week regarding the progress of the game, so let's start.
Pledge Manager. We will close the pledge manager in about 11 days (end of the month) so if you have any pending order left in there please complete it. When we originally launched the pledge manager we received emails regarding the painted cannons. We did not add any painted option in the pledge manager because new backers can join us as well but the facotry cannot take more painted minis. We know who pledged for the painted cannon since we can see it in the survey but also from the amount you pledged. We also did not add the Essen option because we did not know if we will catch Essen due to the very tight deadlines so we did not want to cause any confusion.
We don't have to wait until the end of the month. The factory informed us that they still test the molds/tools in order to fix some small details so we do not catch Essen in no case, that's standard. The point is to make the minis as they should be and not with inperfections. We will contact those of you who wanted to collect the game at the fair so don't worry about that. We can read from the surveys who wanted that, so is easy for us to find you.
As you know from the beginning of the campaign we had mentioned that were working on the coloring of the dice in order to choose correct at the end and it was really hard. So firsty we completed the colored ships/miniatures of the Navy Commander and they work perfectly considering that the commander's dice must follow his ships/minis' coloring:
The colored ships for the base game are below: HMS Dauntless (orange-gold) & HMS Dominion (purple)
The colored ships for the Clash of Corsairs are below: Dervish (azure) & Peakhope (beige/cream)
You already know the colors of the War-Captains' minis/ships. For those we had chosen the basic colors (red, green, blue, red).
ou can still join the project since our pledge manager will be active until the end of the month: https://mage.pledgemanager.com/projects/aether-captains/part...
Stay tuned until our next update
