I exchanged a couple of messages with them and they confirmed June launch but didn't give a date.

The kick starter has now gone live.

The figures look great.  :-*

They will also be releasing a mass battle ruleset "Samurai Battles" written by Craig Woodfield - the author of the Ronin rules.

Wow. These look amazing. Glad they are doing Monks and Ikko Ikki!!!

There's a long way to go financially in this kickstarter before they make Monks and Ikko Ikki.

I was impressed they have finally managed to do a nice looking set of plastic samurai. I am glad its reached its goal. From the 3d print prototypes they show, it looks like they are aiming to be scale compatible with the Perry samurai range (which will work it my current collection). The command pack looks like it has a lot of customisable options, so I hope it'll reach these as a strech goal.

Stretch goals have been modified and they have added new dice.

Great to see some more samurai options in plastic. The warlord / old wargames factory lads were getting lonely.

Seems people were only after the basic box sets. The kickstarter seems to have stopped growing since it cleared its minimum pledge. Still hoping Cavalry and Command make their targets.

The curious thing is that the campaign isn't really very visible outside facebook. I might not have heard about it only for a particular facebook group (though I guess I'd have seen it here). No mention on TMP that I can see.
I think that visibility is live or die for a Kickstarter. Also the minimum buy-in for figures is 90 euros which is a bit steep for the casual buyer.

That said I've not run a Kickstarter before and Fireforge have, so I am going to assume they know how to do it better than I do.

You can't post about kickstarters on TMP - the post will be deleted. Unless the company concerned pays for sponsorship.

One of the reasons I have abandoned it. Plus all the nutjobs.

Yeah, I think I saw it mentioned in a TMP post last week (not by the company, just a gamer) and it was deleted in a couple of hours.

Last few hours for this one if you want to jump on. I nearly missed it.

Will there be a range of decals for these in the future ?
