We would like to issue a formal update about the Kickstarter for Flint and Feather.
As you all know we have been working on getting the Kickstarter ready to go to present to our supporters. We had the preview posted last week and we have since taken it down.
Thank you for all who provided feedback on the Kickstarter.
However, two things came up over and over again from those who provided feedback for the Kickstarter. First, people were looking for the rules. The Flint and Feather rules are in playtesting right now. Some of you have played them at conventions. This is great and we will continue to run games such as at Little Wars on the upcoming weekend. We are scheduled to run a playtest game on Saturday night. If you are available please join us.
The second thing that came up was the fact that some people only wanted one set of miniatures rather than both box sets that we were offering in the basic pledge.
So we had to reconsider the Kickstarter given these two requests.
After hours of discussion and planning on how we can work out the timing, we came up with a solution. It was decided that we would run the Kickstarter with the purpose of getting the miniatures released as soon as possible while raising funds to complete the rule set. With this in mind our plan is to move forward with getting the miniatures funded and shipped by July 2016 while getting the rules funded and shipped by December 2016.
We realize this schedule is aggressive but we believe it will be achievable. Therefore we spent the weekend working on the Kickstarter and we should have something ready to begin this week. Believe us we want this Kickstarter underway, but we also want to be able to present a great product to our loyal fans. Thanks for the patience but we are trying to get this done correctly up front so the end of the Kickstarter is achieved in a timely manner.
Also, in order to have a video about the gameplay in the Kickstarter we completed our first (hopefully) game play video where we show the Close Combat rules for Flint and Feather. So for the loyal followers of our blog, here is that video for you to see. Thanks all and keep an ear open for the Kickstarter kickoff later this week.
