    It makes sense that the walls don't to me. To buiild a decent fort we are looking at a minimum of 2-4 wall sections to make the smallest fort. Wall sections will likely be purchased in quantities that would match the base soldier packages. Hoping that since the walls do not come with figures that they are cheap. Hoping no more than 30 dollars a piece.

    Funny, BBTS just put the individual soldiers in my PoL, but Orn is still in preorder status even though I ordered him well before.

    Anyone else already have their Orn from them? I’m curious if they already had a wave come in and ship and he’ll be a restock in the Frostlight shipment, or if I should be expecting him soon.

    If I were Rogal Dorn, I would say all of them. But I might consider starting with four, or maybe five. The price will be the issue.

    I got Orn from ShowZ a while back and the other first wave guys should be here any day now. :D 

    I'm feeling like I'll need at least five of the siege towers and at least six wall sets :S

    Man the fort and walls look awesome

    but its a dangerous slope….could end up getting too many

    Maybe start with 3 each for a triangular setup?

    See the above, unless its a separate release. Could be wrong, but given the modularity of the line.

    I think base on the older videos

    Stonehenge , Walls, watch tower ramp, bunker, catapult attachment and the tank thread that you attach the stone henge into to make em bigger.

    You son of a bitch. I'm in.

    So, we're still waiting on the massive trailer with cannons on, the catapult/trebuchet and at least one variant of Frost Light to all be revealed in colour and then we've seen everything seen so far, I think.

    So, folks who have them, what's the joint quality on these guys? Because i'm sorely tempted to cancel some pre-orders to get these instead.

    Tolerance wise they're sometimes too tight if anything; especially on the lateral should hinges and bicep swivels on mine.
    The right thigh swivel on one of my trooper guys (the one with the open faced helm) also really likes popping out; my Orn has a similar issue but to a lesser degree.

    Other than that though they're very solid despite being so small.

    Yeah the fortifications are a little steeper price-wise than I was hoping.

    The walls are less money then the starfall squad and you get four of them, seems ok to me.
    The tower is a little pricey and those new pictures show it with the roof section which is not included in this first release so they'll probably be a deluxe tower before long.

    Whilst they look incredibly fun; price wise Im a little bummed with the building sets, like if you were to replicate this build it's going to cost around 200 bucks for the towers alone:
