From the update:

What can I say? The Kickstarter campaign is thundering forward and we’re all in for a crazy ride in this last week! We unlocked more new Stretch Goals including the Undead Gunslinger and have revealed the next round of Stretch Goals through the $1M mark. The big $1M Stretch Goal is Beli’al.

    I haven’t been paying attention but looking at it now, I find the KS unclear. All those unlocked stretch goals for new heros and enemies, those are actual minis you will get included and not just stretches for add on purchases?

      All the stretch goals marked with the Outlaw Icon (which are currently all stretch goals) are included in Outlaw Level ($150) and above.
      In addition if you have a Mine Cart Level (currently $480) you get a copy of all the purchase add-ons that are marked with the Mine Cart Icon.

    Also, some more info on the Mine Cart levels that had early bird deals which are now not available anymore, consolation prizes for late backers:

    All backers of the Round 5 Mine Cart ($425) will get an additional $25 bonus credit for extra Add-Ons.All backers of the Round 6 Mine Cart ($450) will get an additional $50 bonus credit for extra Add-Ons. And all backers of the Round 7 Mine Cart ($475) will get an additional $75 bonus credit for extra Add-Ons.

      That’s a pretty crappy consolation prize… “hey we’ll make it up to you buy letting you spend an extra $75 on stuff you don’t want or need!”.

        From the way backers keep buying into it very few share your opinion.

        As has been stated many times, most of the optional extras included in the Mine Cart (or available for purchase with the additional credit) will not be available for sale at retail for a year or more so there’s also the expediency of having a complete game at the get-go.

        Plus the credit can be used to purchase additional core game(s).

          Now let’s not confuse people picking an option because there are no alternatives with people thinking it is a good option.

    Then don’t back it. Sheesh, this sense of entitlement for KS projects. A company puts up what it feels is best, people buy or don’t buy. Expecting them to offer it the way ‘you’ want it…just wow.

      And people say what they want and what not. It’s called “giving feedback” and many crowdfunding campaigns have benefitted greatly from it.

      It is the companies free decision to listen to that feedback or not (and please note that I am in no way saying that all feedback is justifed or good) as it is the free decision of people to back a campaign or not.

      The important part is that no-one should be an ass about it.
