Day 15, officially our slowest day since the launch of the project. We are still moving forward but these last to goals are defining what the word stretch means. I still fully believe that we will hit every stretch goal but, as backers, we need to get the word out. Find some people that have not heard of this project and show off this flock. Some great news and pictures of the wings at Source Horsemen (http://www.sourcehorsemen.com/forum/vie ... ?f=2&t=415) that, I hope, will get posted to the project page as an update soon.

You can pledge for one of the base amounts now and then adjust your pledge, up or down, right up until the end of the project period (7-12-2013 7:14 EST). As the two wings unlock their price will be posted and pledges can be adjusted.

I never pledge until the last couple days. I want to know exactly how many stretch goals I am getting so I can better determine value. Kinda bummed they aren't actually adding much in the way of free stuff like many other KS's do. Allowing me to simply spend more money is hardly a perk. :lol:

Day 16! Welcome to the Middle of the Project! (my apologies to the Pythons) We are half way to end date of this project and 87% of the way to funding of our Bone Wings. That said we are currently $1000.00 shy of the Feathered Wings. I had predicted the wings would land this weekend but I may have missed. Again this is to be expected during this middle section. There should be a last minute surge during the last 5 days as people feel the pressure of time and pull the trigger but I would rather not wait. I want to know that my wings are coming as soon as possible.

...and then it went back down almost $150 so the number is below feathered wings again... :x

EDIT: Nevermind... Almost $300 over now. :)

Should be stable now and over 145K. there is a great thread at Source Horsemen that shows the idea behind the Feathered Wing scale and design. There should be an official update at the project page on Monday with more information and possible pricing.

As for adding free stuff. We have all ready got webbed feet for Minotaur the Duck but this really isn't the kind of project that can offer freebies as stretch goals since there were so many figures. It doesn't mean we wont see a weapons pack or shields get thrown in after the bone wings. If you have ideas for freebies pleas post at the Project Page or in the thread for ideas at Source Horsemen so the guys can read and consider them.

Thanks for all the support.

UPDATE:
$18.00 for articulated Feathered Wings.

See, that's what I mean. They aren't adding the wings, they're just allowing us to buy them.
That's not how stretch goals are supposed to work. And $18 is a lot for just wings! I can get an entire Marvel Legend for that price, including Archangel . . . who has wings. :roll:

Disappointing.

Please keep checking back as we push on towards the last stretch goal, the Bone Wings.

Day 18 and for the first time in a week our averages have gone back up. More posts, more backers, more money today. Well, on average at least. We also are right on the edge of another milestone - 900 individual backers. 900 people who feel these birds are worth flocking to. For the expected lull that happens in most Kickstarters this project ha plenty of life and those Bone Wings are not that far off.

Day 19 is now behind us. We are now less than $10,000.00 away from gaining our last, at this time, stretch goal, the Bone Wings. Here's a question, Would you people like to see more paid stretch goals or something that might be thrown in as a freebie. What about some of the accessories from older Fan Ex projects in new colors, new Tee shirt designs, other 4H product?

What I want to see during these last days of Four Horsemen Studios first (of many, please) Kickstarter project is more background about Gothitropolis? Tell us about the world of Gothitropolis. Who is Scarabus? What are the Time Keepers? What role do the Ravens and their brethren play in all of this? How about you? Speak up here, at Source Horsemen, or on the project page and tell us what you would like.

Freebies are always nice. Like alternate heads or extra weapons.

But I wouldn't mind some background on the actual world itself. Maybe a poster map or something. Not more stickers or shirts, though. I want action figure stuff.

Day 20 is over and we have passed the $160,000.00 mark. Less than $5000.00 away from getting our Bone Wings. We also got lots of clarification from NJ about plans to offer some of the Flock at Store Horsemen after the KS fulfillment is completed. While this is great they do point out that there will need to be minimums of each item ordered through the KS to make sure extras can be order for the web store. The more we order through the KS the more likely those individual birds will make it to Store Horsemen.

Day 21 brings us… Flamingos! Flamingos? Well, It seams that several retailers have approached the Studio asking for additional birds that they could sell. Keep in mind that Kickstarter will not allow pledge levels or multiple pledges that allow for re-sale. This is great news as it means word is out about our little flock here and having additional retailers could mean higher quantities at Store Horsemen. The down side will be hunting another set of birds that will have landed all over the web. So how many retailers do you think are sniffing around the studio? 3? 6? 12? How big could our flock become.
