Just so I understand this - Do I get everything in all those stretch goals with my $70?

And the counters don't need to be clipped?

Wowza.

do they actually have all that developed yet?  Or is this like one of those Reaper minis Kickstarters: "hey, just throwing shit in there!"

David Heath has mentioned a few times that everything in the KS is ready to go to the printers the moment it finishes so I take that as a yes.

Do you think they wish now that the stretch goals were set higher.

Don't think so. They have all this stuff printer ready. Pretty sure David wanted to give it all to us. He's pretty generous that way.

yeah, I know David's pretty squared away about those things. My comment was as much tongue in cheek as anything

What's amazing is how much of the weapons in this game, could be ported to a current times game 33 years later.  Abrams, T-72/80, Mi-24, Apache.

Thing is how much they've changed though. A 1986 Abrams or Apache is not close to the same as the 2019 models. Same for the Soviet/Russian stuff. Same names, but very different equipment.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

Yea, I was thinking of that while I was typing.  Everything has been updated/modified, but there hasn't been a large amount of new systems.

No one can afford it ;)

Kind of like one point in the Honor Harrington books.  The Navy couldn't build new classes of ships, but they could modify existing classes.  Results were the same.

It's fun watching that pledged amount move closer to the next stretch goal.  :D
