    I wonder, how soon would we get regular Defiance.
    Not all of us could join Kickstarter, and that’s sorry. Any ideas about date or possibility of that?

    And the main moment here for me...
    If it would be regular edition, would it be also metal miniatures there?
    Plastic or resin are much less interesting for me. (To talk about resin, it’s material I prefer not to buy at all)

    So, two question.
    1). Would it be regular Defiance not only for Kickstarter?
    2). If it would... could we expect metal miniatures there?

    Defiance was a Kickstarter-only product. There were some retailer pledges, but apparently without much take-up due to low margins.

    For what it’s worth, I think the player character models are the only ones unique to the box, and I assume they’ll eventually get a regular release (if they don’t have regular versions already)...

    I kind of hope that some day a retail version of Defiance exists, even if it’s all plastic minis / cardboard standees. It would be a nice way to spread the Infinity universe to some adjacent hobby niches.

    A lot of Kickstarter only games also offer reprints in subsequent campaigns, so if CB do a Defiance 2, they might offer Defiance 1 as an add-on during that campaign.

    They have tokens for everyone, I think, so they could easily do a mini-less version. Not that they wanted to, but it's easy enough to do.

    You could wait for ebay or buy/swap/sell groups on the zuccbook because KS remorse IS a thing, and copies will show up there from people wanting to recoup their "overspending" (I'd use "investment" but too many gamers can't tell the difference between overspending and over-investment at the best of times).

    They stated numerous times that this is a one time thing and there will be no general release. Even though there's enough tokens in a box to cover everything. There will be no further expansions. And as we all know, when some company states something it will be 100% true. Long term - defiance will be dead due to lack of support, and with relatevely low numbers of backers, community will wither as well.

    I'm more curious if they will release digital rules and stuff at all, cause it has pretty good mechanics and people should have a way to enjoy it before they will go on a KS with 2nd ed (which they will totally not do since they stated it). Even if its for TTS.
    Oh, and digital rules might help with finding all these numerous errors and vague wordings in english version.

    I was under the impression they left the door open for future Defiance or Defiance related Kickstarters, it just wasn't viable as a general retail product.

    The guy who made the Aristeia TTS module is porting Defiance to TTS, but it's Spanish. (dunno if there's plans to add English support)
