Any idea when these'll be purchasable on your web store? I'm holding off putting in an order for various Empire stuff until I can add these in.

I plan on picking them up at the caster next Wednesday. Given the bagging and shipping I'll have to do, along with snapping and touching up pics of them for the store , I'd say the 23rd. In any case, I'll send out an e-mail to my mailing list (you can sign up on the website) and post here when they're ready to go.

You can also do your order now, I can hold that and invoice you separately for the Halberdiers once I have them. You'd get them slightly quicker that way, as it would be before I put them to the store.

What they just said! Looks likely that any 'Tale of WM painters' for June 2016 might show a lot of Warmonger minis being painted around the world?

Thanks guys. I'll be bagging the next couple of nights (256 units, 160 of them halberdiers).

Pledges will ship as I get the invoices, so people ought to be getting them next week. The June Tale will definitely be an option for people.

They look very good.

Which is good, as postage seems to have got more expensive  :'(
Or perhaps in the past with shared pledges we bought lots of packs so it seemed cheaper per pack.
Anyway, happy to support the production of new 10mm figures - especially ones that are so lovely.

Ya, postage keeps creeping up every year it seems. It's also incredibly non-granular now, with regards to the weight. 8, 32, 48 or 64oz are the only categories for the most part. The sweet spot for the cheapest shipping per pack is just shy of 32oz. That's roughly 20-24 packs depending on what's ordered.

Another good Kickstarter under wraps it seems. When can we expect the next one?  ;)

I'm waiting for the dust to settle and KS to actually send me the money so I can get a clear picture of that.

The halberdiers ended up costing me $1.05 more than my conservative estimate, so the proceeds aren't going to be much this time around. That, coupled with how I want to precede with cavalry (see below) means the wait might be longer than average. Who knows though, maybe people looking to start an Empire army will order a bunch of them and we'll be good to go. To that end, please review them, spread the word and link to the store when you get a chance outside these forums.

On the cavalry, I'm looking to commission 7 bare horses (walking, trotting and cantering) from Bob first, mold and cast them, and then send sets of metal horses back to him. He would then take a set and sculpt the knights, a set and sculpt the reiters, etc. It will effectively front load my costs, but will be cheaper to commission the sculpts in the long run as I won't have to pay for horse sculpts each time (just the riders).
