First of all, I hope everyone is well and please accept my apologies for the silence since our Militia Miniatures KS campaign was completed. I hope you've all enjoyed the miniatures!
When the project finished we were planning on a quick follow-up of some vehicles and bad guys, but unfortunately a few things conspired against us in that endeavour. Firstly our sculptor was unable to take on more work, so the bad guys were put on the back burner. Secondly my day job at Pendraken over the past 9 months has been crazy, with us buying up the Blitzkrieg Commander rulesets and releasing our Warband Fantasy rules, it's just been non-stop.
There is good news though, in that we did start getting some new vehicles sculpted using 3D design and printing. The first of these is a 1:56th Humvee which is away with a resin company at the moment being moulded up. The quality of this model is outstanding (you'll have to take my word for that!) there are ZERO print lines on the master print and a level of detail I'd not even realised was possible in this new technology.
The main model will be cast in resin and will come with separate wheels, suspension mounts, rear bumper and front bullbars, all cast in metal. We'll have a couple of gun options for it, along with a couple of different gunners for up top.
Timewise and release wise, it's not going to be a quick turnaround, but we're hoping to have the first models ready for release around the end of the year / early 2016. These will be a traditional release on the Militia and Minibits websites rather than another KS.
On the figures side of things, we are still looking for a new sculptor and are hoping to make some progress on that front in early 2016. There are a lot of sculptors out there, but we want to make sure we get the right person who can put out quality sculpts that fit in character wise with our initial 10 Merc's.
That's pretty much everything for now, once again I hope everyone is enjoying their miniatures and we'll keep you all updated as we progress with these new items.
