It just tripped $300K. I signed up within the first day or so. I went with the Battlecry package, and am really liking all the bonus stuff I'm picking up as the funding climbs higher and higher. 57 minis that are cross useable into Battletech and represent some really good looking concept unseens for less than $3 a piece. Plus dice and a game as a freebie? Yeah... It's a good deal and it's getting better.

I have only seen a couple of their miniatures so far and i am quite impressed with the few that i have managed to see, I've read that the miniatures are about the same scale as the classic Unseens give or take the odd MM. If anyone can provide me with a link to the miniatures they intend to produce and their future releases that would be much appreciated. :D thanks Zac

On the updates page, they just posted up a new graphic of what we're getting in the Battle Cry pledge level, and there's also a projected actual size measurement in millimeters comparing a typical 32mm tall gaming mini with a battloid and battle pod. Great comparison. There are also updated images of the other miniatures.

Thanks Dread Ok now i have seen some of the figures i'm pretty sure they are the same casts from Harmony Golds bubble gun trading toy figures they produced several years ago and if this is the case all of the Valkyries including the LAM's will be roughly N scale, the others Tomahawks/Warhammer, Defnders/Rifleman, Phalanx/Longbow, Spartan/Archer should be smaller if they are indeed the same molds used for the bubble gum trading toys. You can still find some of the LAM's on E-Bay for about $7-10 which i think is still a bit of a bargain as they have great detail and the few i have owned in the past were completely free of any mold lines.I have to say that i wouldn't mind getting a couple of those MAC II's, hopefully they might even think about doing the Mini MAC and the MAC III, I always wanted to kitbash a Mini MAC but never got around to doing so...

I was VERY tempted but decided since I don't regularly game any more that they would just take up space and collect dust. However, I am really interested in seeing what you guys get.
