Some look nice, but those shields are far too small!

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2017 10:51 a.m. PST

Agree!

Okay we can look at that and make some larger ones.

Would people prefer separate shields or all in one castings

Gone Fishing Supporting Member of TMP10 Feb 2017 1:03 p.m. PST

Sorry Oops, I hope the above didn't come across as harsh. They really do look nice except for the shield issue!

I'm not really in the market for Ancient Greeks at the moment, so take with a grain of salt: gluing shields can be very fiddly, but having them cast separately generally allows for cleaner casting (I think?). So, if made separate, I'd give them generous plugs to help one along. Having said this, I still think my vote would be for the whole thing to be cast together. Makes for a much more durable figure, to my mind. But again, potential customers should have the last word!

Best of luck with it!

Thanks Gone Fishing :)

Made a pledge today, I chose the 25 pounds level, but would like to add a group of 8 slingers to it, and add in an appropriate increase to my pledge. Wondering if the campaign can provide for adding figures to it like this?

TKindred Supporting Member of TMP16 Feb 2017 5:27 a.m. PST

Separate shields. Much easier to paint and detail as separate pieces.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP16 Feb 2017 11:24 a.m. PST

My choice would also be for separate shields.

sausagesca16 Feb 2017 1:42 p.m. PST

I would prefer cast on shields. I like the look of the figures and have enjoyed the recent purchases I made from Tiger (Spanish Renaissance).

oopsdoubleone17 Feb 2017 10:39 a.m. PST

Add-ons can be accommodated, I will get the updates added to the kickstarter in the next few days, away for a couple of days working but ASAP.

Thanks to all our backers

Campaign reached the first stretch goal.

oopsdoubleone20 Feb 2017 4:45 a.m. PST

Sorry I've been quiet but I have been busy.. and with the figures too.
added Athenian command figures to group.

see the updates link

Are the add on figures mentioned on the campaign, and going for 3.75 per pack, a group of 4 figures?

Which would then mean if I wanted 8 slingers added to my pledge level it would be 7.5.

oopsdoubleone20 Feb 2017 10:09 a.m. PST

They are packs of 5 figures so that would be 10 figures =7.50 or 75p each.

If you only wanted 8 that could be arranged for £6.00 GBP

Huzzar! fantastic Goal ~2 Unlocked

Thracian hoplites are now an pledge option

Thanks for the support

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP23 Feb 2017 6:19 a.m. PST

So if my pledge level is upgraded from 25 pounds to 50 pounds, would I be able to replace the Hoplites with the Corinthian helmets for Thracian Hoplites instead?

oopsdoubleone23 Feb 2017 7:59 a.m. PST

GamePoet Yes I think during the request for information at the end of the campaign I will ask for your preferance to helmet types etc, it might make thing easier for backers to get what they want.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP24 Feb 2017 2:34 a.m. PST

It is great that there will be choices!

I see the campaign is close to the third stretch goal to have attacking hoplites. I'm thinking some of my hoplites might be requested to be these.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP26 Feb 2017 4:48 a.m. PST

The campaign made it to the third stretch goal, and the attacking hoplites are now free to move forward.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP27 Feb 2017 6:36 a.m. PST

And now close to the fourth stretch goal. Maybe it'll reach the Greek Mercenaries, and then the cavalry next!

oopsdoubleone01 Mar 2017 8:22 a.m. PST

GOAL#3 UNLOCKED.

heading for goal #4
Thanks for the support.

Reached Goal 4, the Greek command set.

The Greek mercenaries goal is not far off, and hopefully the Greek Cavalry can be reached, too.

I've noticed that at the 50 pounds/approx. $60 USD level, that is under a dollar per metal figure.

Under a week to go!

oopsdoubleone05 Mar 2017 6:38 a.m. PST

Only five days to go, first molds being made so we are well on track.

Thanks to everyone for the support.

oopsdoubleone06 Mar 2017 5:30 a.m. PST

Four days to go and GOAL#5 is near.
Greek Mercenary Hoplites. So if your interested support us now and see if we can unlock this goal before the end.

Again Thanks to everyone.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP08 Mar 2017 11:33 a.m. PST

Well unfortunately it looks like two backers withdrew their pledges, and we're a bit further off from the Mercenary Greeks. Under two days to go, so maybe.

oopsdoubleone09 Mar 2017 9:06 a.m. PST

A few dropped out but more backers join.
we have a few figures back and hope to have more tomorrow to show you. As requested we will offer backers the widest choice of figures we can, and all will be pictured before choices need to be made.We have separated shields from most figures as requested.
thanks again to all backers. only 24 hours to go if you still would like to back us.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP09 Mar 2017 7:56 p.m. PST

Only 100 pounds off from the 1,000 pound goal. Going to watch for if last few hour bids come thru, and if it can be put it over the top with 25 more pounds, then I'll do it.

oopsdoubleone10 Mar 2017 9:02 a.m. PST

Hurry we are Funded.

Thank you to all our backers.

GamesPoet Supporting Member of TMP10 Mar 2017 2:25 p.m. PST

Looks like it picked up a pair of small backers, but not enough to put it in range of me placing an additional 25 pounds to put it over the edge for the Greek Mercenaries.

That's ok. Congrats on the campaign! Looking forward to having the miniatures.
