New stretch goals have been posted!
Cyclops and minotaur! Metal coins!

I have just backed this and now I the new goals popped.
I am happy that Orc Boss was reached and I am quite enthusiastic about
the rats and additional tiles. I am however bit mixed about the ordering and content of stretch goals in general.
I would rather get more heroes like skald and content like treasure and quest decks, because I am not going to get any add ons.
Also if elemental boss will be only an add on, it seems we will specific cards that will make all elementals more special.
Also the inclusion of orc boss as far as at 300k goal was quite strange given that orcs are core stuff.

But this being my first backed kickstarter (I am from central Europe),
I am more and more excited about this project.

The minotaur looks either ill or sleepy or both.
I hope the pose etc. will be reworked yet a bit.

Maybe you should read the text in the bottom right corner of the minataur

I have read it and I base my hope on it that it will be redesigned for better :)

Pretty standard for BF. They make a great product. Personally, I'm not a fan of the "in box" foam storage because it can't be expanded. I'll be waiting on the trays they create for their PACK system so the trays can grow as the game does. I have the X-Wing trays for a PACK 216 and they are amazing.

Yarp, I just bumped my pledge by $100 thanks to addons (haven't updated it lately since I knew new stuff would become available). Getting down to crunch time...need that 500K mark.

Getting a bit lost with all that's added to this game. Two quick questions:

1) If we hit $475k, how many figures will be included at the $100 level?
2) If we hit $475k, which races will be "missing" components (not having a mini-boss or a boss)

The 6 tile add-ons are 6"x6" while the stretch is (not sure how many) 12"x12" tiles. So, yep.

In the cyclops lair, there is no shampoo... Just eye wash! laugh

Seriously though, at 450K, Apprentice will give us 66 additional miniatures, yes?

The new tiles, are they double-sided so technically the tiles of the game doubles. Maybe like snow/desert now as well.

It hasn't been said, but I am 90% sure the new tiles are double sided. Because all of the other tiles are, and MERC seems to be smart enough to know how to add value cost effectively.

Trying to answer #2 on my own:

Skeletons:
Minions
Captains
Mini boss
Boss

Rats
Minions
Captains
Mini boss
Boss

Orcs
Minions
Captains
Boss

Arachnids
Minions
Captains
Boss

Elementals
Minions
Captains
Boss (add-on)

Cyclops
Minions
Captains

Stand-Alone
Minotaur mini boss
Razorfiend mini boss

So...it looks like 2 races come with a mini-boss, 1 comes with a paid add-on boss, 1 does not have a boss figure, and there are 2 "extra" mini bosses.

I think generally speaking the Mini-Bosses haven't been closely tied to the races. There may be a loose association in some cases, but they're not like Captains, so there's not necessarily a need for a race specific Mini-Boss.

And also the Master-Blaster Rat-Ogre is a feasible Mini-Boss for Rats AND Orcs.

What I find interesting is that the 425k solves a major gripe for apprentice backers..then they turn around at 450k and recreate the problem with cyclopses...es.

yes, indeed!!

further more i would have prefered to get the new cyclopses race first instead of 2x 2 captains...
what about switching the stretch goals and getting 2 cyclopses captains at 450k, too?

Will the BattleFoam trays only hold the stuff from the retail game or will it hold Captain level or Apprentice level?

What about add-ons such as Skald and the Elemental boss?

Here's what Brian said on the KS...

Quote:
Creator MERCS Miniatures about 3 hours ago
The battlefoam inserts at this point hold all the base game and 20 more figures. We are working on a solution to find a home for the other miniatures. No option is off the table.
