Wish they had a 2 pack of Raptors for those of us getting 1 during Wave 2. I won't need the cards and don't need 3. So seems they are missing an option for KS backers.

I'm wondering if the corpse set in Wave 2 will be resin or plastic. I only bought 1 set and would like more but would rather wait for plastic if they are planning to offer it later. I'm not a big fan of the resin since it's difficult to work with.

The three pack comes with triples of everything.

Ask if they would allow you an upgrade via the store like they have for some of the other pieces. They're obviously not adverse to it!

Does anybody know if FFP is going to be in Essen? And maybe having a sale there?

you have the option to buy 1 too, so you can choose how many you take.

You can buy one Swamp Raptor for $25, two for $50, or three for $65.

I was thinking the same thing.

Apparently "sale" now just means "for sale", as opposed to "on sale" (implying discount).

What I'd like to see is a Raptor 2 pack with no cards. KS backers don't need the cards, just the 2 extra Raptors to fill out for the 3x raptor encounter.

But I'll probably just not bother getting 2 more and use the elite ability gets added for each missing miniature rule.

I picked up Frontier Doc and Jargono Native heros, mostly because I'm unwilling to wait for retail. But otherwise, I completely agree with what's been said here already: there don't appear to be any discounts for most of the SoB stuff and the items they have are rather pricey. Better to wait for retail if you can.

Anyone know if the new classes will be in retail? I always assumed they wouldn't be, given that the hero models have always been exclusive to FFP's store.

My understanding is that they will be. And based on how the cowboy, doc, and natives tokens are packaged (all on one sheet) I think they'll come in one box. (Those 3 at least)

I would think they would be a hard sell to retailers as single-figure packs. SOB isn't a huge-selling franchise.

Not huge selling compared to what?

My three pack I just got from the FFP store came with only one set of cards, they must have changed it since GenCon

As a head's up, CSI has the Sand Kraken and the Swamp Raptors on pre-order with expected release of November. The Swamp Raptors are at 16.49 and the Sand Kraken at 23.49. So that 65.00 pack isn't the best way to get your count up to 3 Raptors.

If I understand you correctly, you roll for two different Elite abilities when you have to place 3 models, but have only one (left). That's not how I play the game...

Rulebook, p. 22 (right) wrote:
If you are called on to place more Enemies of a particular Enemy Type than you have models available (for instance, you must place 4 Tentacles, but you only have 2 models as the rest are already on the board), place all of the models that you do have available, and ALL Enemies of that Type become Elite for the duration of this Fight.

My interpretation of that rule is: every time (=Threat card) you don't have enough models, roll for ONE (unique) Elite ability. See also this thread.

Although, re-reading the text, it might even be: if they are not yet Elite, make them Elite (1). But that somehow does not seem right to me. Especially if the Enemies were Elite at the start of the Fight. The rules are a little fuzzy here and there...

I think a new rule text could be:
revised rule wrote:

You're correct. Anytime a card (threat or otherwise) calls for you to place a model, and you dont have enough, you add one elite ability to the other monsters of that type. You only add one elite ability no matter how many minis you are lacking.
So 2 swamp raptor cards would need to come up to add 2 elite abilities.
