amazing level of support, really feeling the hobby love! I would rather more Ito or the Ronin faction we saw at salute before a rulebook, rulebooks really have to be right, and I'd rather wait a while longer than have to carry 8 pages of errata with me to every game:) however, a lovely colour map would be pretty nice:)

A ronin faction sounds awesome!

And I agree fully about the rulebook. Don't rush it.

Oh yes, a full map would be great. Intriguged why the preview map has an area of ocean called three brothers.

I was fantastic! And it was a bloody good laugh!

I got my pledge in too. Didn't especially want the models, but I'm sure I'll be happy painting them. Bushido has a lovely range, so I imagine they'll be more of the same.

I mostly pledged because bushido is a game I'd like to see grow. Its a refreshing break from anime-scifi, high fantasy and steampunk. (Which are nice genres, but seem to be done to death.)

I do request though that my "donation" be put towards something frivilous :P Have the studio table lowered maybe? And gold hubcaps...

Hi
I am rather interested in a Two set pledge - but when I would get the existing faction? (I do not want to wait for too long to get my hands on them :))

thanks!

Woo! New Stretch Goasl! Really excited about them. All I ask... is a donation level (and new goal level) where we can get the new-new model (along with Itsunagi). :D

 

Edit: Also, announcement of the new goals up on TGN. Woo!

Those full art Profile Cards look fantastic. I think this sort of thing would go down well as tournament prizes.

have the lower tier pledges disappeared now then? the minimum one on the page looks like it is the $50 one.

If that the case, what happens to people who previously pledged for the lower ones?

Quit your moanin' Ronin.

I belive the few that were on the lower tier upgraded their  pledge ...

I'd like to see a rulebook, given the art/background as an indication of what it could be like, it could be awesome. I can see why they may want more people to playtest it first though, some other systems have masses of errata to the point where the primary rulebook is already redundant, and it'd be nice to have one solid reference tome to go from!

Fantastic. Triple the goal in just under a week. There are three weeks left, could we get twelve times the goal? That'd be epic.

As cool as it sounds I'm more perplexed by the fact Tentacle Bentô kickstarter has raised the same quantity of funds in just 3 days. Funny enough It seems anime busty japanese highschoolgirls trend beats fantasy samurais...  lol 

Anyway so far I'm liking what I see of the Ito, If the miniatures manage to live up to the concepts it's going to be a cool faction.

So... I've done $50, but now definitely want to be in (and can afford to be in) at $100. So I believe I just say I'm in for another $50, but whom do I contact to say, "Yeah, I've got two $50s, so make sure that counts at $100"?

Well, I'm in now for $115. You guys went and had to strike at my major weakness... dice.

Though, if you make one type of Ito faction dice, you'll also have to make something like a reverse-color version as well, so someone can have Ito dice for both attack and defense.

Oh, and of course, make/sell a 3rd type as a single for a Wound die.

:p

Dice are my weakness to, but I'd really like to know more before I throw cash in for them...

Are they to be 12mm or 16mm dice? (My personal preference is definately for 16mm) Or will they be the wierd little 8mm dice that came in the starter?

Will there be attack and defence dice? What colours do you intend to use on the dice? What about the pips? :P

Will you be adding a symbol? Will you put it on the 6 or the 1? (The 1 is stupid, don't do it! :P )

 

I might be a dice addict... :P

It's a bit unfair to aim for weak spots such as dice! :-)

jswiers is right, 16mm is good for showy dice! And it should be a good experience seeing the faction symbol, not a bad one, so put it on the 6.

I know I'm a dice addict.

Yeah, I saw that on beasts of war and was baffled. My general philosophy is that minis>cards, so I'm biased.

Maybe people just really like anime schoolgirls... I think that trope is tired. (opinion)

You're right. It is. Glad I went in for it (by way of $50 twice) and a $15 one so I don't have to make the brutally difficult (no joking here, really) choice of dice OR model. :p

From the FAQ thread, it's last QTR of 2012 at the latest. So Oct/Nov/Dec, but hopefully before that. Maybe as soon as August? *hopehope*

August would be nice. I plan to demo the game at a local miniatures convention, Gubbspel Galore, at the end of the month. Being able to show them would be nice.

We need to get GCT to come across the pond and make it to GenCon, even in some sort of unofficial form. I'm going to be swamped with other stuff, and won't have much time to do any demoing or the like, myself. But hopefully someone else will be able to.

I think my brother is running an Urban War demo on the 26th? Is your local game store Battleworlds in Hitchin?

Most game stores would probably be happy to have demos run in them, playing games is the best way to build a player base. It only took me one play of Bushido before I started eagerly spending my hard-earned cash on all the models :-D

Nice, John (my brother) is really getting into Bushido at the moment too. He's just made a load of scenery and has started collecting the Savage Wave.

Are there any Retainers in Hertfordshire?
