What's the other one?

Edit: Obvious question - will the figures be available outside of the Kickstarter after it's finished? I'm not certain I want an Ogre army just at the moment. After I've worked my way through the lead mountain in front of me - next year sometime at this rate - I might be interested.

Certainly hope so, if the Kickstarter funds. However, there will be discounts and free stuff in the Kickstarter that will be exclusive to that campaign.

This is exciting.

I would /beg/ that, especially if the funding continues to climb up, you consider swapping out the Giant level with artillery options, as there are already some great giant proxies available right now and at least one more coming that I know of.

I've cross posted it on my forum - are you going to post it on Tactical Command and other forums?

Yes, i agree about the Giant and if the Snow Ogres could swap places with the Mammoth Riders, that would be helpful too.

Copplestones 15mm Snow Trolls could be said to fill the Yhetee slot in the army list, whereas there's nothing easily available to make Rhinox Riders, apart from Eureka's Woolly Rhinos - but they need riders adding to them  :(

So bringing the cavalry closer to the start of the list lets backers create a more varied army, assuming the later goals aren't reached.

I'm not sure Greenlings are needed. There are plenty of goblinoid figures on the market already.

I'm thinking of going in for the Chieftain level but really hoping that it gets to cannon wielding or armoured chaps to add some variety to the units.

Hmm, yes indeed. Despite what I posted upthread, I must admit I'm very tempted. Might go for the Chieftain level and possibly add an extra couple of units to it. The Character pack would be nice as well.

With some Magister Militum goblin units I've already got and giants, I'd only need to get some Copplestone Snow Trolls to have a >2000 point army.

Must admit, a 1000 seems a big jump to get to release a 4 figure character pack and later a single Chieftain figure, which is then free to the bigger backers. Not sure how that's going to go TBH.

29 days to decide whether to go for it or not.

This should definitely get cross-posted on the warmaster.fr community, I'm sure it would attract some attention there.
