Excerpt from the update in the Croc Kickstarter:
"The Amazons and Automatons are BY FAR the largest single release that Crocodile Games has ever done - with over 50 individual production molds, thousands of miniatures to cast, sort and pack, and over 200 pounds of metal used thus far! But the work is not yet over, as we still need to get these to our backers. Indeed, it is a bit like Santa's Workshop around here, and we are trying to get as many rewards shipped before Christmas!"
I received my shipment notice on Sunday (12/21). I anxiously started tracking the shipment figuring that even though it was being sent via 2 Day Priority Mail that it wouldn't make it till Friday. It was picked up by USPS on Monday, arrived sometime early, early this morning in Aurora and was out for delivery around 7am. I kept doing the F5 dance on the keyboard until it showed up as delivered on the doorstep at 12:15. This was confirmed by the youngest spawn.
Since I'm in Ft Collins this week they brought it up for the family Christmas Eve celebration at my parents' house. I found a quite place to do the now traditional Kickstarter loot un-boxing pictures. I maybe re-considering some of my painting entries for Genghis Con and ReaperCon. The quality of the casting and the sculpting is awesome, mold lines are light to non-existent and the number of poses is great. This kickstarter was well worth backing. I'm extremely pleased.

|The command set|
|One of three Amazon Hoplite units that I received. My pledge came with one and I ordered two more|
|Front and middle rankers depending on which arm you use.|
|Rear rankers, I love the variety in the poses|
|An Amazon Hero, Champion and a casualty|
|Archer captain on the right|
|Peltasts or light infantry armed with javelins|
|That's the captain with the sword|
|I also ordered two sets of front/middle/rear rank hoplites to increase the size of my units|
|And a couple of things I decided to tack on|
|A Sobeki from Wargods of Aegyptus that I didn't have and the demigoddess of Athena|
|The sculpting is stunning.|
