Correct, nothing exact. I wonder how big delay the general project gets due to the chibis. To save on shipping everything should be delivered at the same time in my opinion. I'm also wondering does the factory handling Siege of the Citadels also manufactures chibis?

There really hasn't been any news on the SotC chibi miniatures for a loooong time?


This was posted from the July 31st Update - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/27 ... ts/1950799

"- A week ago we had a meeting with Ninja Division to discuss the Chibi Bundle and production. We're waiting on an update proposal to share with you all - not long now and sorry for the wait on this. "

It appears based on the May 19th update and July 31st update that the two companies are working on a "new proposal." I assume the cost of the original proposal/production was not feasible for one or both sides.

Either that, or ND has been holding up their production timelines with their own stuff...

The Chibi minis aren't holding up Siege of the Citadel. The chibis were announced as Resin minis so that they won't be done in the same factory as the Siege plastics.

And the sculpting has already been done.

I mean, Modiphius did basically promise a new level box from NJ. We haven't exactly had that confirmed from NJ- but the chibi exoghoul does mean that the NJ people are on board with expanding the chibi Mutant Chronicles stuff.

Confirmation that SDE-SotC will be a warband.
That means heroes, mini-boss and a full spawnpoint. I'm crossing my fingers for paired spawners.

Is there some reason to think they are changing the makeup of the spawn point from what was previously announced?

I have the same feeling as Imriel, it sounds exactly like what they mentioned at the end of the campaign. Modiphius teased about additional miniatures, so i guess we will see in a week, unless more delays again.

I'm hoping additional miniatures for the price we paid for a full spawning point or a discount for purchasing everything to make a full spawning point.

My guess? Same reason it always is: "Money"

That's a reason it might change, not that it did change.
We've already seen the Ezoghoul for the mini-boss, and they've announced the Nephrite spawn point (1 Nephrite mobile spawner, 3 Necromutants, 3 Legionnaires), leaving only the hero for the Warband but my guess would be that they bundle in all the heroes but Murdoch. It would have been interesting if they said level box but Warband doesn't leave much room for speculation.

My thought would be that it would be a deluxe levl box like with the ninja ambush. They pony up all the heroes in it with 2 spawn points worth of dudes and at least 1 (if not 2) ezoghoul mini boss (es). It makes more sense that way as they can sell it retail and force people to buy everything rather than just picking and choosing.

It's not going to retail. Modiphius might sell extra stock on their site or at conventions but that's it.

I mean... did they SAY that recently, because they didn't really advertise a bundle off the bat, nor was the Ezhogoul originally even advertized as purchaseable, so I'd have to assume at this point that "the game has changed".

Except there never having been much clarity of exactly what we were getting? :?
And people wanting to buy ONE box and be able to play e.g. a game of Arena.
People were displeased with the thought of having to buy two sets just to field a themed Arena game or even normal SDE game. Iirc the first proposed deal even gave you a useless surplus of some models.
It's all shaping up I think, but this whole thing wasn't really thought through from the beginning.

Anyways Idunno... To me it sounds like there's still a lot of balls in the air on SPM's side of the court.

When did the purchase structure change? I waited until almost the last day to finalize my pledge and still ended up with the "useless surplus" options of purchasing... :?: :?: :?: :?:

All of which is why we're getting a larger bundle. I'm more asking why the hope of the Nephrite spawn becoming paired.

technically it hasn't yet but they've been saying a bundle was coming since before the pledge manager opened.

Ah okay... Got'cha

I'm of the opinion that if you want to cram a lot of different models into a spawnpoint you are better off with a paired as that allow for both more and stronger models. That bill seems to fit what they are trying to do with SotC

Note, this is not a deal breaker to me though ;)
Paired or single, it's all good...

A new update just went up:
Quote:
Hi guys we have some news on the long awaited chibi bundle. We've just finished a series of calls with the Ninja Division team to nail down details. We can announce that there will be a special Dark Legion Warband fully playable in the Super Dungeon Explore boardgame.

The Dark Legion Warband will come with the following:

8 x chibi Legionnaires
4 x chibi Necromutants
1 x chibi Necromutant
1 x chibi Ezoghoul
All the cards needed for the Dark Legion Warband AND all 5 chibi heroes.
The Necromutant counts as a mobile spawn point. This bundle will be $75 and includes everything you need to play. We'll be updating the Pledge Manager to allow you to select the Dark Legion Warband and previewing an image of the contents to remind you how they look early next week. Please be patient until it's ready.

I assume Necromutant in place of Nephrite is a typo.

Hurrah. I still have to wait for them to update the pledge manager, but I'll be able to add that wonderful ezoghoul to my order.

I'm getting enough chibis to play SotC, by the way, and re-doing my pledge manager to include cute lil' Ezo will be $15. Seems like a good deal for a big resin badass.


The set does cost more than SPM's plastic warband sets, but that's what we expected (since this is all resin).
