The Aravises/Charemises dual kit remains the same, this once again is a make-it-or-break it scenario (just like the relaunch of the Forest Goblins which managed to fund and now are a great kit available to the public).

Here's a picture we'll be showing again for the arabian faction, but it's not only female (hard plastic kits for males are planned as well).



Here's another one but better images are being worked on.


One of our main feedbacks we listened to the last couple of years was how we did injustice to our range with mediocre images/photos (hence the rebranding of our webstore www.shieldwolfminiatures.com), we hope you like them!  :D

If not, we still appreciate the consideration!  :)

Will the Valkyries be available in the smaller pledges this time or only in the big army sets like they were in the last failed Kickstarter?

Good morning @robh!

Yes they will.  :D

Also as a side note, we never considered it a "failed" kickstarter, just not funded. We've witnessed "successful" kickstarters that took in hundreds of thousands of $$$ and took ages to deliver, changes on the promised items, didn't deliver at all or any combination of the above. Just sharing our point of view of why we consider we have always had succesful kickstarters and hoping this time around we fund and (once again) deliver as promised.  :)

Good news, I have no need for a set of them but a few to convert for use with my WWW2 Germans will be great.

No particular need for these figures, but can anyone tell me if the mountain orcs are compatible with GW Space Ork arms and heads?  I like the savage look but the head is a bit too different from the rest of the army.

Yes they are but don't take our word for it, google the image or check forums they have asked that repeatdely for snakesomething tribe, here's a link i found from the T9A fantasy forum

Thanks for that! looks like the shoulder joint might need a bit of tweaking, but entirely do-able and it looks like the bulk and stance matches well.
Much Appreciated!

@eilif
Ah apologies for that, YES, the arms are compatible scale wise but they will certainly need tweaking if you intend to replace with the GW ones.

Thanks,
  Yeah, I'd be putting GW arms and heads on them.  I've got a massive bag of them.
