I hate to hijack the post, Mason 1, but are you "in the way of knowin'" if BB's "Leomade Wars" minis are going to be released at some point?

Knowing? I hope so!

There will be a relaunch of the Lemonade Wars campaign on Kickstarter next month, this time with accompanying rules.

Yes, Blind Beggar has some very unique stuff.

Thank you for the kind words.

The campaign has almost Funded, just a few more Backers and we are there….

Three new 'Riders' are being added to the campaign.

The new additions are from the People of the Sands faction who make ideal Skyriders as they already wear breathing apparatus and eye protection, so the speed that a 'Wing' can reach will not affect them, neither will the inevitable dust when riding the dunes where they reside.

They will have their slotted tabs removed and pegs affixed to their feet instead.

There has also been a change to the Pledge levels, changing the 'Skyrider Gang' level from five to six 'Wings' and 'Riders' to make it possible to Back for all six options currently available in one Pledge level.

The campaign has now Funded!

So, a huge 'THANK YOU!' to all that have helped us get this far, we can now push on to that Stretch Goal, which will be announced later…..

The Parawing Glider…..

An optional Add-On is being made available during the final 48 hours of the campaign: The Parawing Glider will be available at the price of £10.00 GBP per 'Wing' and 'Pilot'.

Please take note: It is available as an 'Add-On' only and is not an alternate 'Rider' option!

The Parawing Glider features a different configuration which enables the 'Pilot' to hang underneath the 'Wing' itself and achieve a much higher altitude.

This kit comes in three pieces: the 'wing', the 'pilot' and the harness section which holds the pilot in place.

The pictured 'wing' is a metal master casting. The 'wing' that you will receive will be a resin version.

The pilot and harness pieces will be cast in metal……

Here is a terrible picture of a painted version of an assembled 'Parawing Glider' showing a model 'in flight'…
