Default Re: Helpful links for Kickstarter

As of now (4/12), this is what I know of the nine $4.5K sponsored sheets. These sheets will only be available from the people who pledged at the $4.5K level, not from SJGames. (Latest updates in red.)

Commentary: Considering the current schedule for Ogre (landing in Austin in late July 2013 per Update #74, these sheets likely will not begin shipping until at least late August or early September (from each $4.5K sponsor separately).

BoardGameGeek has a thread tracking similar information.
Per Update #76 and the "Read Me First" sheet, SJG is putting together a webpage to organize information. Not yet live SJG page. [Unconfirmed rumors of ordering links on this page.]

Other info
One of the sheets has a Mark III scheme by FireHorse; Steve Jackson might have called them "awesome", but Firehorse thinks they are only "pretty cool".

By my count, the nine $4.5K sheets include:
* 2 sheets of (mostly) terrain overlays (BGG, Knockman).
* 2-3 sheets of flat units (wolf90, Thirdpower, maybe FMG).
* 4-5 sheets of 3-D units and buildings (BGG, Walt Freitag, ACD Distribution, at least one of FMG's two sheets).

Potential confusion: see comment by Daniel Jew on BGG on how these nine sheets have each been replaced by 1-2 sheets in the current design.
