Mythic Legions are getting a new kickstarter tomorrow?
For the game, and it looks like it will have figures as part of the rewards — they have only shown the new Gorgo and Attila, which are definite improvements over the old ones.

Nice. Is this a new game cause I remember they already did a ks for a game.

Nope, same game. This is an official kickstarter. The other crowdfunding was to get the game off the ground / let in early adopters into the decision making process.

So are the figures in the Kickstarter limited quantity? From the email today:
We are expecting demand for these new figures to be very high, so get in on the campaign early and secure yours!
I'd love to get both of these but if the prices on the run similar to the private campaign figures(a little over $50) I'm not sure I could this week.

It's Kickstarter, so you won't be charged anything until the end of the campaign.

What you quoted is just marketing hype. There is no way these will sell out during the campaign period as they will make at least as many as are ordered.

That's what I was thinking with it being a Kickstarter, it'd hopefully follow their standard preorder procedure.

Bad wording I suppose. I've never backed anything on Kickstarter so I wasn't aware of the pay time, thanks for that info!

They’re rereleasing Attila and Gorgo as a 2pk. Obviously some changes are being made on the figures. Attila looks much better. New shoulder armor and weapon. Brighter gold.

Also, the orc and elf Builders from the private campaign will be offered but without the bonus 4th heads.

The main site says its live but the link just directs me to the games website.

Not seeing it on their Kickstarter profile either.

$100 for the two pack seems a little...absurd

Looking closer at the new bits like the shields and pauldrons makes it seem a little less absurd but...yeah

Feel like it's kinda a mix. The detail on these looks incredible assuming it's not just a render. $6 less than the builders from the game, but with a lot less accessories.

Those aren't renders. @onesix_shooter (on Instagram) took those photos. They're fully painted up samples.

EDIT: I have to add this though...$100 for two figures and a game I'll never play is a bit steep.

They look fantastic then. The cost doesn't feel too steep to me, I love SHF/Mafex as well and God knows the prices on those have blown up. Also got into Mythic late, so ended up paying retail prices for some figures from waves that had closed preorders, those were $50 as well.

Definitely couldn't care less about the game though lol.

I don't think the $100 includes the game.

I think at least part of the cost for the 2 pack is the fancy, wired capes.

Mythic Legions figures are usually priced so well, I think some people just may be shocked when they're priced more on par with similar product. Even though I own the original Attila and Gorgo figures, I'm definitely getting this 2pk. The improvements on Attila are amazing! I see they resurrected the KS1 long axe, which I was hoping was gone for good. Small "complaint" though.

And yeah...I have no interest in the game. Being able to mix armor and color to create your own character is a neat feature if you're considering doing the same with the figures and want to see what it'll look like.
