Did my part! Can't wait for the models to come out.

Also, who is it from you guys that we got to watch on the video?

Could someone colour the Naga in the (faction) green?

Atm it looks a bit "out of faction" to me even with the tail, but iam not sure wether its the colour or the amount of armor while the others wear nothing or silk...

Hmm... I don't know if he looks that out-of-place. When I get the faction I might try and paint up the different units as different patterns of snakes. Some will be jade green, others dusty brown, others black, etc.

Though I need to be painting up the stuff I've got currently, first. Thankfully, with the semester over, I've now got time on my hands to do such.

So the Indiegogo campaign is set to finish 1st June 2012.  How soon after realistically would we be looking at seeing the Ito being released.

If the campaign goes over the $5000 mark, is there concept art and scope for introducing companion waves to match the starter?

Oh, I'm in! I mean, snake samurai!

I had some trouble when I tried to pay at first, but an hour later it worked, though it took  a little while to connect.

I would think this is a very strong and realistic stretch goal, enabling the faction parity in terms of number of models available would be a great thing to have at release.

Thanks for the feedback, I have emailed indiegogo to see if they can sort it out.

I just wish I had the $750 to spare so I could heavily suggest the idea of a "Chinese-boxing Ursine." :p

$1000 mark broken, lets push onwards.

Greeny got a response from indiegogo -

Thank you for reaching out. We apologize for the disruption. The reason for any individual unsuccessful contribution may be due to a variety of factors, including insufficient funds, international restrictions, internet connectivity, outdated browsers, incorrect login or card information, and etc. In order to pinpoint the problem, it would be helpful if you could send us a bit more information:

> What page were they on and what did they click when you encountered the problem?
> Did they get an error message? If so, what did it say?
> Can they share any screenshots of the issue?

Any other information you can provide will is greatly appreciated.

Any of this apply?

I've posted about it in the Bell Of Lost Souls forum. No-one has mentioned the system on there before, so I posted some pictures to inspire interest.

I wavered and being skint went for the $50 contribution but I just couldn't press click on the mouse. I knew eventually I would cave in and want the Temple faction so the, I want I-Two claimed my contribution. I'm so weak for shiny Oriental mythology miniatures.

@raggedyman: Yes. (This comes from my experience with the now finished Dark Potential indiegogo campaign)

Also, once payday hits I will see if I can't contribute because the Ito have stolen my soul from the Prefecture. ^_^

@Hayabusa, congratulations that's great news, I hope you have a great day and a love filled marriage.

@Raggedy Man, indiegogo does each transaction independently however if you add aditional funds to get a better perk just let us know. We will be happy to keep a track of the total you have donated and what perk you actually want and ship that to you accordingly.

In fact we'd love to keep track of your increased donations ;-) One step or slither closer to the Ito!

@ Kahuna Dave, Roll on Friday :-)

Wow, walked away from the computer for half an hour and this happens, well eventhough the goal was reached I'll still be pledging at the end of the month. 

Just out of curiosity if you pledge you pay, right? it's not that the $2000 pledger can suddenly backtrack out of his pledge?

Edit: Son of a ..... The second $750 pedge is gone now too, I'm so jealous of all these people that have that amount of money to spent. 

Well I guess a wedding is pretty special too... I guess... sigh ;) Nah i'm kidding it's great to see this going so well.

Goddamn! This morning I was even all like, "Cool, 3/5 of the way there. This is gonna be awesome when it makes it there" and then I went to lunch and now KABLAMMOO! (or "Skadoosh!" if my avatar is to be considered). Booyah, guys! That's awesome... though, I am jealous of the two $750 and the $2k pledges. I only wish I'd had the ability to help out like that. But it's still frikkin' awesome!\

Also, if you guys update with something new before tomorrow and want that put up instead, lemme know. :p

Kudos to everyone that has backed it at any level and anyone that has shared it on forums or social networking... We're getting new fans because of you guys, which is awesome because it also means more opponents to crush into the Jwarian soil!

Lets keep up the momentum.

@Henrix, Loving the forum ninja'ing :-)

@Jason, Think it's worth sharing about the indiegogo exclusive stat cards anyway.

Congrats, I'm pleased to know that the Ito are on their way and I like Hayabusa will still be pledging as I would hope one of the stretch goals is for the Ito to play catch up with other 4.

I can't wait to getsss them. ;)

Oh definitely. And I'm excited to be getting mine. I'll just be re-wording the overall update to no longer be "Bushido doing well" to "Bushido busting through the roof!" or somesuch. :p

Really looking forward to reporting on the stretch goals when they come around, too. :D

It is very exciting to see it all grow.
I have often looked at kickstarter projects and be amazed at ow successful they are as a way to raise capital for new / existing projects... This is the first crowd funded project I've actually taken part in, and am very proud to be a part of it.
Just wondering what things you could do with the extra money... :)

BOOOOM $10000 - kudos to the guys chipping in with the high pledges. If only I had the spare cash available.

Would love to see announcements made to the fact that a full nice glossy Rulebook could be in the pipeline now.

Plus extra Ito to push the faction along side the other ones.
