iT'S not that I _need_ any more unpainted figures, especially not EIR, but ….

Hope this'll get funded, mayhaps you'll check them out.

Multi part 15s are a hard pass for me.

Those look great.

I'm all in favour of 15mm plastics, but I don't want EIR, especially not in those numbers.

Wish them well but cannot see it progressing far.

The sculpts look excellent, especially the command and the marching legionary with the pila (the old airfix Roman in this position was my favourite), but you only get 6 of them in a box. I think the rest are mainly for diorama builders.

Kickstarter now standing at just under £8,000.00 GBP, but needs to reach £30.00 GBPk just to get funding.

The stretch goals set at £30.00 GBPk a stage, so they have to get to £270.00 GBPk before you get the archers.

At £40.00 GBP a box for the kickstarter backers, I am curious to know how much they will retail at.

Boxes of 150 figures (or 78 cav) are rather big. Fine for the legions as they are the core of the army, not so good for the auxillia and cavalry. The cost per figure of approx 27p is great, but if you have 1/2 or 1/3 of a box spare there goes a lot of your savings.

I wish them well, but it is not for me.

Multipart 15mm with separate arms is slightly crazy.. And most Roman players will want their EIR in identical poses.

Seems a strange thing to produce.

Regretably, I have been proven to be right. The kickstarter has been cancelled by its creators.
