So what's next?
Right now, we are hard at work on all of the fantastic miniatures and extras that we promised! Chris is busy sculpting away and I (Debs) am compiling all of the responses to the surveys, trying to answer questions in a timely fashion and pack croc orders! It will take a while to get of all this together, but we'll be posting progress updates along the way, and we appreciate your patience.
But you can still help! If you are a veteran WarGods player why not talk to your local gaming store or club about organizing a game or running a demo, be active on the forum posting pictures from your games and getting involved in the discussions.
If you are new to the game, come join our community! You will find lots of helpful information and resources on the forum, along with a new WarGods players google map. We will be adding new content as time goes on, so stay tuned!
Thanks again for your support!

We are into the final few hours of the WarGods of Olympus Kickstarter - the program will end at 5:05pm EST today.
The walls of the city of Troy are said to have been built by Poseidon, and invulnerable to the force of men.You call forth the limping son of Hephaestus from the rear of your army. He advances forward, accompanied by a towering colossus of bronze with the head of a bull. Three times the Automaton strikes the gates of Troy, and with the third blow the gates shatter. Your army surges forward into the city, and the battle wages throughout the day. By nightfall the defenders are either slain, fled, or captured, and the beautiful Helen is yours at last!
Both the Kickstarter Exclusive Helen of Troy miniature and the Hydra have been unlocked and we on our way to unlocking the Harpies! There is still time, so please keep spreading the word and if you haven't backed us yet, now is your chance!
Thanks for your support!

We are into the final 30 hours of the WarGods of Olympus Kickstarter and we just unlocked the Amazon Cavalry! Thank you to all of our backers for your support and for helping to spread the word, you all have made this possible!
Now that the Amazon Cavalry has been unlocked, here are the details... the release will have 3 packs - Mounted Horse Archers (5 miniatures for $40), Mounted Amazons with Spear and Shield (5 miniatures for $40) and Mounted Queen Penthesilea ($20). Kickstarter backers can get the whole set of 11 miniatures for $80, and save $20 off the retail price! We expect these miniatures to be ready in September, 2014 - you can add these to your pledge, and we can have them shipped when the are available (US backers for an additional $6, International varies depending on what country.)
The battle is still being waged for the city of Troy. As of this moment, we are only $8,500 away from unlocking Helen of Troy, and when that happens, her miniature will be included in ALL reward levels of $160 or more. Based on our progress over the last day, there is a great chance that this can happen - so long as we continue to get the word out. Please tell your friends, Facebook, and online gaming forums, and we can make this happen!
Last of all, we have another set of concepts to show off - the one-eyed giants known as the Cyclopes! These guys can be used in a warband lead by a Demigod of Hephaestus for a little extra muscle!
Thanks again for your support!

The Automatons have been unlocked! Thank you to all of our backers for helping to make this possible! We've now added the Clockwork Owl to ALL reward levels that include miniatures (basically, everything except Watcher and Warrior.) So, if you have miniatures coming, you'll also get this little guy:
You now also have the option of purchasing the rest of the Automatons as Add-Ons. You can get the whole set (Minotaur, Bull, Hoplite, Warhound, and Owl) for a special Kickstarter price of $42 - that's saving $10 on the set!
Our next stretch goal is at $100,000 - the Gates of Troy! This is the big battle we've been working toward... if we can unlock the Gates of Troy, we'll be adding a second wave of Trojans that can be purchased as Add-Ons, or grouped together for a special Kickstarter pre-order price. The new Trojan miniatures planned are: Trojan Chariot, Trojan War Altar & Guards, Trojan Seer and Temple Guards, Tragic Hero, and Price Hector and Paris! Check out the great concept art by John Wigley:
Above we have 'Man-Killing Hector' and his brother Paris - that womanizing rascal that started all the trouble!
And here's a peek at the new Trojan Specialists we have planned:
The god Apollo is the primary god of the city of Troy. He has gifted some of his priestesses with the ability to see the future, but there is a price... for her foresight, the priestess has lost the sight of her eyes. On the battlefield, she can make predictions that often come true. And she is protected by two temple guards (like the Honor Guards allowed to Demigods). The other Specialist is the Tragic Hero, a great warrior who is fated to die heroically in battle, and the knowledge of his certain doom instills him with a supernatural bravery!
That's all for this time - let's keep spreading the word, and thanks again for all of your support so far!
