Hell is that way...

A massive, heart-felt thank you from Mike and myself! To have a thousand join us on this (un)holy pilgrimage is simply mind-blowing! Thank you. 

Only 9 days to go. Like the guy in the pulpit is saying, hell is that way...

Cheers!

The heretic tank will burn in holy fire.

Quick update (I'm out with family today - it's Sunday AND the school holidays)...

Illuminator Michael has prepared some sketches of alternative poses for the communicant. Your lord bishop bids you to cleanse yourself of your sins and prepare for absolution.

CONCEPT ART
Alternative communicant poses. Concept art by Mike Franchina.

I will be re-posing and sculpting these as stretch goals. Many have been petitioning for alternative poses, so we hope this goes some way to answering your prayers! Essentially, once I receive the resin masters from Zealot Miniatures, I can convert some in order to give you more variety on the battlefield. My favourite is number 2. Which is yours?

May the heretics tremble in fear.

Cheers!

Slaughtering stretch goals like heretics in a trench.

Well, to say the Kickstarter has totally exploded in a cloud of holy napalm would be an understatement! Yet another stretch goal slaughtered. Thank you once again to all of our backers for helping to bring the Trench Crusade from the artwork to the tabletop!

Mike and I are busy discussing what's next and, when we have made some decisions, we will post updates accordingly. I am also talking to a couple of fulfilment centres about shipping, customs duty etc. I had no idea this would explode like it has, so my initial plans for packing and posting a hundred parcels myself, from my living room, has gone out of the window like a live grenade. Will let everyone know about shipping and whatnot as soon as I have some concrete figures from the fulfilment companies.

Can't believe we are almost at 1000 backers... totally bonkers! :) 

Cheers!

How do I get add-ons and what is a pledge manager?

BackerKit pledge manager - How it works for backers

For the Trench Crusade Kickstarter, we will be using BackerKit as our post-campaign pledge manager. Here is how it works:

1. After the Kickstarter campaign ends: You will get an email from the creator (that’s me!) with a survey to help you manage any updates and simplify communication.

2. Update your info and pledges: In the survey, you’ll add your shipping info and reward preferences and grab any add-ons unlocked during the campaign (for example, add-on miniatures). If anything changes (like your address) you can head back to the survey to update it.

3. Easy for everyone: By having your information on BackerKit, you help make life easier on us creators who have rather big to-do lists! Easily accessible information for both creators and backers leads to faster, more efficient communication and delivery.

Some backers have been asking about how to add-on miniatures - is it done now, or after the campaign? The answer is that you can do it after the campaign ends through the pledge manager!

To keep things as simple as possible for everyone, we only have one pledge level. Everyone who backs the project will automatically have access to the BackerKit pledge manager, where you can update your address, change your pledge, add those add-ons, get multiple set and so forth. Basically:

 1. Back the project

 2. Sit back and enjoy the ride

 3. Campaign ends and we pass details on to BackerKit

 4. Backer survey sent to all backers

 5. You can now choose what you want!

If anyone wants any more detail, you can also check out the BackerKit website.

I hope that all makes sense, but if you have any questions at all, pop them in the comments or drop me a message via Kickstarter.

Cheers!

You have been found... worthy.

You have been weighed, and not found wanting.

Mike and I are utterly blown away by all your support! It truly is incredible and extremely humbling. We thank you for your support - it is obvious to us that the Trench Crusade is something that has piqued your interest and, we believe, should be developed further. In what form(s)? We cannot yet say, but deep within the crypts Mike and I can be found, bent over our desks - eyes bloodshot, fingers gnarled, minds twisted, mouths gibbering...

So, it appears we slaughtered a couple more stretch goals and, in addition to the Combat Medic (updates on her progress coming soon) we now have the Trench Pilgrim to sculpt. Chatting with Mike about this today, we may be going for a different pose to the original artwork. More on that soon, too!

You have petitioned your priests for further stretch goals, and the Cardinal answers your prayers. Behold where we are, and where we can go...

You have joined us in the trenches. Now join us as we go over the top, into no-man's land.

Cheers!

James
