I too assumed we would get one random mini from what we had already been offered (guards, ratmen, villagers). I am excited that we get new and different but disturbed that they do not seem to be random. I do feel it is wrong that they will not be available to purchase. I have said before but will repeat that i feel the sewer mini should have been more noteworthy (like the 2 headed croc).

They did a LOT right on this KS, but i think the minis thing is kinda missing - too bad it was one of the exciting things we were all looking forward to.

I was thinking it was going to be a random sampling from the villagers, guards, and rats. Hard to describe the smile when I found those Crocs in the goody bag. I am convinced that they are exactly what you can find in the Sewers of New York ;)

Hopefully, DF will find a way to sell more of these in the future.

I thought it sounded like it would be a random draw from the existing minis (city guards, townsfolk, ratmen). OK, I ASSUMED, and we all know that means... ;-)

Thank you, Dwarven Forge!!!
Yeah, that was my assumption too. It wasn't overly clear in the update, but those were some pretty chaotic last few days. It's a damn fine reward! I just hope they're available later since they have the molds already. But if we're judging by free-standing walls...

Historically promo pieces had been sold with some of the resin sets, but from what I have seen those were advertised as limited edition promo pieces.

KS1 had the free standing walls and a limited edition painted version of the Chamber of Sorrows. Did KS2 have anything like that?

In all honesty I cannot say that I WOULD have changed my pledge, but I can say that it would have been a consideration.

Anyway... I am very happy with my Village and plethora of add-ons. :-) My friends and I will get many many awesome gaming hours from them!

Thank you, Dwarven Forge!!!

my sewers had a rat with 2 wounds on its back, my village had a rat, a dwarven smith, and a bearded man with a mug.

I'm feeling a little disappointed then... I got the Capital City, Imperial Streets, and the Monster Sewer, and all I saw were three villagers, one ratman, and a rat on all fours. :( I was kind of hoping the mystery sewer monster would be substantial. Not to mention one of my streets was missing a grate.

Thanjs for the "plague mask" tip. I found this on the Web Image

I bet the Lord High Undertaker needs a mask like that!
