Yes, very original! And thank goodness it's an unarmored unbraided version  ;). Good luck with the KS, won't join but I will pick up a few items eventually.

That's a Musk Ox, not a Yak.

Just sayin'.

Regardless, I think it looks great! A very original miniature, I have not seen anything like it before.  Would love to get one eventually.

Ok, I've jumped on board. Would like to see more of the braids/plaited hair as mentioned. Also any extra fur/light armour torsos would be good. Not to keen on the giant weapons, but as it's plastic it's an easy get-around.

Any news about other troop types? Archers javlins/atl-atl etc.

The faith is much appreciated! Weaponry is not going to be that big, but yes, heroic scale for sure!  :D

In the other kits, let's just say we started out with the "traditional" version.
Like we say on our rulebook (IIRC page 96) downloadable from our website, there are Shieldmaiden Rangers; these have missile weaponry...  ;)

Each of the boxes = 20 multipart HIPS miniatures!!!  8)

That could potentially make the boxed game valued at 100$ for 135 miniatures!!!  o_o

2 stretch goals down, 3rd is something like a few hundred $ away from being unlocked, and more to come!!!  :D

Take a look at this graphic here, isn't this deal amazing?  8)

Seems like it's going to start getting hard to make people pledge money with this habit of cancelling projects.

Yeah, I had planned to get in for the boxed game despite it being pretty unlikely I'd ever need that many warrior maidens or orcs.
Someone in the KS comments mentioned this:

Quote from: Someone in the KS comments
I'm not sure if this is an honest way to run a KS campaign.
You set a realistic funding goal and if that is met, you produce what you promised.
I have a bit of a problem with "Oh, but we had much more planned, we were hoping for more, let's cancel it despite being funded on the 2nd day".

I can't help but to agree with his/her sentiment.  :?

I really have no idea what I'm doing.

I'm not sure they're using the term 'Funding Goal' in the same way everyone else does.
