Woo hoo! I'm in.

I'm looking forward to 6th Edition, too.

While I'm not a huge minutes fan, this seems like just the ticket to introduce my kids (6 and 4) to Ogre without risking the cardboard pieces!

Oh, and a question: I know you don't like to talk about future stuff too much, but are there any theoretical plans to make minis using the Combine sculpts as well? I'm debating whether or not to get a reverse color set now, or just wait until real Combine armor is available...

We will have to see how this project plays out before we spend much time on future sets.

Totally understandable. I'll take that to mean that it's possible, but don't hold my breath :)

Thanks!

P.S. The link on the KS page to Reinforcements is currently [FNORD]...

You sure about those prices, Phil? That's substantially lower than I'd guessed. (Or maybe I should just shut up.)

i'm in for two boxes.

I think I'm in for 5 minis sets plus Reinforcements:
  1. 2 original color for me
  2. 2 reversed color for me
  3. 1 original color for my 4-year-old daughter to play with

The Kickstarter specifically says that Ogre 6e will be in stores well before this Kickstarter ships. What about Reinforcements?

I also note that the Reinforcements countersheets depicted in teh Kickstarter represent our first really good look at Reinforcement's contents. Looks like color-reversed standard MKIIIs and a MkV and red PE(?) armor.

What it actually says (for both 6E and Reinforcements) is
Quote:
Note: Kickstarter delivery of this item is scheduled for after its launch in stores. If you want this [game/supplement] as soon as itís available, we suggest pre-ordering at your favorite local game store and NOT ordering through this Kickstarter project.
That's not "well before" anything. It just means the scheduled date to hit stores is before the scheduled ship date of the KS contents. That could be 1 day, it could be several months. No concrete date of arrival in stores for either 6E or Reinforcements has been stated yet, AFAIK.

Cool.

Yep, just pledged for $160. 5 sets - 3 original, 2 reversed, and the posters.
