If memory serves me her pictures during the whole of the this order never showed her painted staff. I fell in love with her on the second pre-order when they did. I broke my figure list into "buy, maybe buy, and no" Many on my no list are now some of my favorites. Their stock photos don't do them any favors. Between your reviews and Instagram pictures certain figures really pop.


This is exactly why I have tried to save big before orders so I can always go "All In". I have had so many figures arrive that I didn't much care for at first which end up really surprising me once I have them in hand. A few examples:

- Sir Gideon Heavensbrand
- Scaphoid
- Adamonn

Those are 3 figures I likely would've skipped had I not gone "All In", and all 3 of them blew me away to the point that I have since bought multiples of each to use in my customs! I know that not everyone can afford to go "All In" due to the crazy size of these Kickstarters, but if you can do so and grab at least 1 of each, that is the way to go IMO.

Herra 33


I'm surprised the Cavern Dwarf is so high on the list. Don't get me wrong, I love Dwarves and ordered several of this guy myself, but It was the only figure in the wave that was a repaint. It felt more in line with a midwave release than a kickstarter release, and I assumed many would pass on it for that reason. I'm glad to see Dwarves getting love, I just didn't expect this one to.

I was a bit disappointed with this figure when it was first revealed as a stretch goal for that very reason but I think the fact it's a dwarf (which we need more of btw), the low cost and the addition of the new dwarf weapons really helped it sell more than it would have otherwise. I ended up getting a couple myself after the inclusion of extras were revealed during the kickstarter.

Just a note, the numbers I posted are probably not 100% accurate (as Gowron was able to notice immediately). My eyes aren't what they used to be. Please contribute any corrections or additions if you find them.

You know I wonder if the Horsemen just put in an order for an X amount of all the head sculpts and bodies then just tell the factory to change the paints for when they do Variant sales.

Like say for example the tell the factory to produce 10,000 1.0 Knight figures to save on costs have the ones they need painted for the 1.0 KS and Pre Orders maybe selling 5,000 units then when they do another run with different colored Knights they just have the factory paint from the remaining 5,000 units for whatever the pre order numbers are and what we in left over will either be for another variant batch or just have the numbers upped for the previous orders.

I don't know the mechanics of toy factories that well, but I can't imagine they'd be willing to sit on thousands of unused figure parts of months/years at a time.

My first box arrived in a Steel Knight Legion Builder box. The box says there are 74 boxes of 24 Steel Knight figures, so 1776 figures.

Elf Ranger has 63 boxes
Ba’lam has 54 boxes
Knubnik has 74 boxes

I did not see these 3 figures mentioned in the current tally. The numbers come from the boxes 4H has shipped to me.

Skeleton soldier builder is already in the tally.

I wonder how the goblin LB will place? Elf LB came with a lot of extras but goblins very popular.
