Looking at it I'll be going with Major. I've got a feeling that'll be the sweet spot.

It will be that or Colonel, I think (and we will be making Colonel more attractive as the KS goes on). One thing to remember is that Big Stuff is worth more sets. So, the Skorpion, for example, takes up two sets in a pledge, whereas a Blackmare tank orSeraphim flyer are likely to be four sets.

All depends on the kind of army you want, which is why we have tried to make this as flexible as possible!

Damn....I'm interested in a Rogue Trooper game. Although when you've seen one Nort miniature, you've seen them all ;)

I think Major will attract the most people. I definitely can not afford the £500 drop on colonel!! Don't matter how many freebies you throw in.

Not many people have £500 to drop on toy soldiers though, and Major will account for my Feb/March treating myself and eating named meat budget. I think that will be the case with most people.

I think Colonel should be fabulous, but Major and Kapten will attract the most people. A £150 pledge between the two might see a lot of people who would go Kapten go for an extra £50.

What might be an idea is £25 or £50 bolt ons (£25 extra on pledges on Kapten or over gets you another set plus something) to encourage additional pledging.

Being able to add to it after the Kickstarter is over is a good idea, and if Major + Kapten is good might lead to people going Major to start with and then adding Kapten a month later.

What I would say is have you got anyone who's really good at female faces/forms?

You could do both the Ursula Andress Venus Bluegenes, and a standard one.

Though lets not get creepy porny like Kingdom Death, just make sure a woman looks like a woman and doesn't have giant hands.

£100 - 5 boxes + 3 Rogue Trooper models with variety of armaments plus possible stretch goal stuff.

For the purposes of how big an army you get, assume 1 box gives you 75-100 points worth.

So the Kapten level gives you a 500 odd point force, Major 1000, plus any stretch stuff.
