Roberto Chaudon, the amazing sculptor who works faster than many other fast things, has finished Hrudinn very early indeed! This means we can show you finished images of the mighty raven-giant for the Norse...
Of course, if you were unsure about the concept (and many of you were) you can now see the miniature in all its glory, finished and ready to go, six months early - and thus if the miniature has changed your mind, feel free to get hold of him as he'll still be available until the Norse ship!
Here's a scale shot, too, next to Galhwch Lladd Llaw the Pendyndraig, who is not small either (a human is roughly half his size):
Mneriiss, Harbinger of Khthon
Stéphane Simon's been beavering away on the first of the new Gorgonares, namely the musician - Mneriiis, Harbinger of Khthon! He's got a right grumpy expression!
The QuickStarter Rules
Unfortunately, there will be a further delay with the QuickStarter Rules. It is likely that the rules will not be downloadable until later on in June, perhaps even early July.
The reasons for this are quite simple - I'm not satisfied with a few aspects at the moment and a few other bits and pieces need nailing down. The meat (bulk?) of the rules are absolutely nailed down, it's just a few niggles that are niggling at me. Any changes made at the moment also alter profiles so they need revising, which is not a quick process.
Simply put, I don't want to unveil the rules until I'm ready; I am determined not to rush for the sake of it, because I really want these rules to work well... and also because I'm a perfectionist! Well, most of the time.
As well as that, next week I am on holiday (thanks to the school holidays being next week, so it's the only opportunity for me to take the kids away until August) and thus I don't want to be fretting about how the rules are being received whilst trying to relax!
So, guys and girls, whilst I know this is not ideal and you all want a go at Darklands, the best way to look at this is that when you receive the rules - I'm aiming for them to ship when the Angelcynn ship - you will have a better game system to play than you would if I unveiled them to you now. As well as that, it gives you time to get some miniatures assembled and perhaps even painted!
It may be that I can show you all a few snippets of the rules when I get back, we shall see, but for now - watch this space. It's annoying because I really want you all to get playing, but hey ho...
We're shipping everything out as fast as we possibly can guys - some of you have already got your orders - but again, PLEASE be patient. We're getting there, based on the way we stated previously in date order, and we WILL get to your order soon if it hasn't been shipped yet.
Whilst I am on holiday
While I'm holiday, please direct any questions to Tim of course, but PLEASE bear in mind that he is up to his eyeballs in rubber and resin at the moment and he will only have so much time in a day to answer questions. He'll pop onto the Kickstarter comments page every day, but please don't worry if e-mails or questions aren't answered immediately.
Also, please bear in mind that it's me that does the website stuff and so any changes to orders, refunds or technical things will just have to wait until I get back (June 2nd). I'm still contactable during the week - I'm holidaying in the UK - but my kids need me more than you lot next week I'm afraid ;o)
Until then my friends, enjoy your Mierce Miniatures and spread the word!
