We're halfway through our campaign and we've smashed through another stretch goal, unlocking the Leaders for each of our factions! We've contacted the sculptor and work has started on these so we'll have pictures for you as soon as we receive them.

These will be individual character types:

- A suited Colombian drug lord for our Cartel soldiers.
- An African general for our Insurgents, a bit like an Idi Amin style figure.
- A Republican Guard officer, not quite the obvious candidate but similar.
- A more rotund chap for the Survivalists, who definitely wants to to make America great again...
- And a female hacker type for our Rioters, co-ordinating things on social media.

Each of these is a £2 Add-On to your Pledge or you can add all 5 for £8 which means 45% discount over RRP!

Our next stretch goal is £6000 where two things will happen:

1. Firstly we'll add a 5th pose to the Crossover Miniatures range of Robots which we acquired earlier this year. There are two sets, Advancing and Firing, and each set comes with two head options as well. The sculptor is poised and ready to start work on these straightaway. These will be an Add-On, priced at £6 for 5 robots.

2. We're also getting a gunner figure made, as a conversion on our original Strike mercenary, which will be added as a freebie to every Humvee purchased. This is getting done either way, so if we don't hit the £6000 we can offer it as a paid Add-On.


If we're able to hit £7000 then we'll be adding a completely new set to campaign, so another 5 'Regulars' and 5 'Specials'. We've got a few ideas of our own about what to add but let us know what you'd like to see!

And that's it for now, we've got 7 days left so keep those pledges coming in!

The Robots are now unlocked so those will be getting a 5th pose. All of the Humvees are getting a free gunner figure as well.

I can bring some along if you like? We've got the pics of the 'Bad Guys' as well as a physical model of the Humvee on the stand as well.

We've hit the £6000 target and so we've now unlocked:

Robots!

We acquired these Robots from Crossover Miniatures earlier this year and they come in packs of 4 normally. We're adding a 5th pose to each pack and they are now available to add to your Pledge at the bargain price of £6 per 5 robots.

There are 3 types: Firing / Advancing / Command, so have a look at the pictures below and if you want any including, simply add £6 per pack to your pledge.

Gunner!

We're getting one of our original Mercs converted to be a new gunner for our excellent Humvee model, so everyone who has purchased a Humvee will get a free gunner per vehicle. Buy 1 Humvee, get 1 gunner, buy 3 Humvees, get 3 gunners... You get the idea!

Next up is the £7000 target which is certainly possible with 4 days remaining. At this point we'll be unlocking a completely new set of sculpts, but we've not yet decided what to do! So, let us know your favourite movie bad guys and we'll see what's the most popular option.

Keep the pledges coming in and we'll have some pics of the Leader sculpts for you very soon.

Hi everyone,

After hitting the £7000 last night and talking to the sculptor today, we can now announce that our bonus set is going to be...

1980's European terrorists!

Leather jackets, bad hair, tight jeans, everything you need to take over Nakatomi Plaza and defeat that pesky chap in the vest. We had a lot of excellent suggestions from folks over the past couple of days but these guys won the vote! And it's quite appropriate at this time of year to be adding something from the best Christmas movie of all time...

We'll be adding a Leader for them as well of course, no worries there.

So, what does this mean for pledging? Well we won't have any pictures of these new sculpts for several weeks as the sculptor has had to reschedule a few things to fit us in. The sculpting will of course be the same excellent standard as the sets we've already previewed but we understand that you many of you will want to see the figures before deciding whether you want them!

So if you like the idea of some 1980's terrorists, there's a couple of options:

- Increase your pledge by £8 per pack (or £7.50 if buying more than 10 packs in total) to cover these new sculpts. Add an additional £2 if you'd like the Leader as well. If you see the eventual sculpts and decide that you don't like them, then we'll refund that additional pledge amount. You can of course take some of the other sets instead, or we could exchange the amount for Minibits store credit.

- Wait until we've previewed the sculpts and then decide whether to add any of the new sculpts to your pledge. This would be done after the Kickstarter has ended and would be invoiced separately.

Leaders

The Leader sculpts are in progress and we'll have some pictures of them before the Kickstarter ends on Saturday.

And that's about it for now, less than 48 hours to go now!
