Just a quick update to let you know how things are going.
As you can see on the image above, our planning schedule for the first wave is getting greener and greener!
All the TROOPS boxes for the Iron Empire Heavy and Regular Troops as well as the Kurganova Shock Troops Heavy and Regular are done.
We are putting the final touches to the Jailbirds' Troops box.
And we are very close to finishing all the Command Group boxes as well.
As soon as the Jailbirds' Troops are finished, we will show you all 25 miniatures from the Troops Boxes, + a couple of extras, so that each army gets some love :)
Not far behind will come the 25 miniatures from the Command Groups.
And after that, we will be finalising all the Heroines planned for the first wave.
However, because we're sure you are as impatient as we are, we are going to post the images of the 25 Troops sculpts as soon as they're all done, rather than wait for the Command Groups and the Heroines and do one Big Update!
In the last update, we asked you about the sets of Heavy Weapons options that should be available in the Command Boxes. We were wondering if some of them would not double-up with what is available in the Artillery boxes.
From your many replies, it appears obvious that you prefer to have as many weapons as possible in the kits, so that's what we'll be doing.
However, just so you know, we do intend to release extra bits for customising your Troops even further with new heads and accessories. Nothing's carved in stone yet, though; we'll most likely wait for your feedback once you've seen the Troops and Supports to assess what are the most wanted additional parts that we could create.
You are about to receive an initial survey for the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Kickstarter. It will take you less than one minute to complete. We will use this info to later on send you the Pledge Manager.
The Pledge Manager, as we mentioned before, will come in a few weeks, after you see the sculpts for the minis that are included in the First Wave.
So, at this point in time, we just need to know your contact information. We'll also assess if you're eligible for the Sculpting and Art Direction webinar which was available either as a pledge (the 3D SCULPTING WEBINAR and the CONNOISSEUR BOX) or as the CONNOISSEUR add-on, so that we can contact and book you. And finally, we'll ask if you also pledged on the Paypal page so that we can begin to match the Kickstarter and Paypal pledges of those who did.
By the way, if you have only pledged via Paypal, we already have your contact info. We will however contact the eligible pledges to determine if and/or confirm that they are to be part of the Webinar.
We know that many of you want to be able to get their miniatures as soon as they become available, even if they cannot have access to a Drop Ship location. Well, we got you covered: the upcoming Pledge Manager will allow you to choose partial shipments, and will let you know very precisely what the additional fee for this will be for this.
So, we'll be talking again shortly. Get ready to see some kick-ass ladies very very soon!
