The Kickstart closes midday Saturday. Last time the KS Servers were slow on the last day until
they crashed half an hour before the KS finished so I don't recommend leaving it till the last

Reaper have put up a Pledge Manager we can use that includes shipping costs.
They are guaranteeing these costs and absorbing any cost increases between now and next year.
Better for the KS and unlocking stretch goals if you pledge all in before the KS ends but
Reaper have said they'll keep the Pledge Manager open until the end of December, we can tweak
what we get or increase (but not decrease) pledges until then and pay for the increase via
PayPal - the KS only supports paying by Credit Card via Amazon. So if budget this month is bad
you can pledge $1 for now and top it up in Nov/Dec to get what you want.

US$100 core set is up to about 150 figures and 70 round bases. Or you can cherry pick groups
from the core for about $10 for 6-8 figures.

The currently open pledge levels are for Dec 2014 shipping. But earlier shipping slots do
occasionally open up as other people cancel or change their pledge level.

This is an unofficial listing of everything currently available with mouse-over enlargements
of the miniatures:

Cheers, Stephen.
