We have decided to shake things up a bit today, as the Kickstarter stalled over the weekend. So the staff got together over Skype on Sunday to discuss Backer messages and feedback. We came to the conclusion that Backers want the new ships first and not smaller stretch goals with extra cargo, fuel pods, and parts, so we brainstormed and reworked the Kickstarter plan.

To get things moving again we have pushed forward the next four new ships (Narwal, Hammerhead, Forge, and Ypres) and hopefully with more ship variety the Kickstarter will attract more Backers and Pledges . All four ships are now available as Add-Ons for your Pilot, Captain, and Captain+All Exo & Fighter Squad Add-Ons Reward Levels with the extra pledge. Plus we have add two new reward levels (Commodore and Commodore+All Exo & Fighter Squad Add-Ons), all the details follow. Normally we should have reached the $14000 pledge mark to have all 4 of these ships unlocked so this will also be a test to see if enough Backers change their Captain level rewards to the Commodore level ones to get all the new ships. If its successful we'll do the same thing for the next group of five new ships (Hydra, Ch'in, Detroit, Corsair, and Intrepid) and announce new reward levels with them and the earlier ships.

Commodore ($160): This reward level includes All the Captain Level rewards and any of their unlocked stretch goals. Plus 1 of each of the four new resin spaceship miniatures included in the Commodore Rewards plus any unlocked stretch goals for the ships. It also allows you to select and pledge for any Add-Ons you want (spaceships will also included any unlocked stretch goals for them as well). Fixed shipping cost based on Backer location will charged after the Kickstarter has ended.

Commodore +All Exo & Fighter Squad Add-Ons ($260): This reward level includes All the Captain Level rewards and any of their unlocked stretch goals. Plus 1 of each of the four new resin spaceship miniatures included in the Commodore Rewards plus any unlocked stretch goals for the ships. Plus all 8 CEGA Exo & Fighter Squads and all 8 Jovian Exo & Fighter Squads from the Add-Ons. It also allows you to select and pledge for any other Add-Ons you want (spaceships will also included any unlocked stretch goals for them as well). Fixed shipping cost based on Backer location will charged after the Kickstarter has ended.

We also updated the Pledge Calculator Excel File to include the new ships in the Add-Ons list and added the two new Commodore Reward Levels at the top, here is a link to download the updated excel file.

Plus we updated the image on the campaign page with side views of the all ships and ruler at the top to include the 4 new ships, check it out below.

Some other news, Dave is currently work on some force examples for CEGA and Jovian Fleets of ships and exo/fighter squads. Once they are ready with post links to them. We also also working a graphic with all the fleet scale exo-armors and fighters painted up, so Backers can see how nice they look painted.
