Castings. Large Pieces. Nearly starting fulfilling! - Progress 20 June

37 likes

This week is mainly a picture spam update of images of nearly every piece cast up :D Since some people have been waiting to see final castings, we provide ;)

"So how come your are not shipping yet? You're bad at these estimates, Eddie!" I know, I know. If only things would run smoothly, life would be easy! :P So that we keep the quality of these minis to a high level, i want to tackle any problems and issues with them, which require changes and remoulds, premaster fixes and remould or reprints on the models.. and remoulds!

The easy option would be to make do and ship the stuff out as it is, but the right option for happy backers is to make any changes and tweaks to make sure every piece is something we can be proud to have in our dungeon ;)

Here is a pretty extensive list of all the pieces. Although, there are a handful missing.
The cast pictures are just raw casts straight out the mould, not much cleanup done :)

 And some of the big parts which we have got back after being outsourced. Material is a little hard to see the detail but would be good to hear feedback on these :)

 If "a picture paints a thousand words"; i wrote quite a lot for this update ;)

Good luck down there, adventurer!

Eddie

      @Alpha: Yea one of miniature scenery's biggest problems comes from how to do effective usable steps! A slope would unfortunately make most minis fall over at that incline.
      What i tend to do is use a dice on the lower step so the mini can stand on the upper step and the dice ok :) Will think more about new types of steps in future releases though :)
      @Michael: Just finishing last moulds and remoulds and first orders will be going on end of next week :D Will write an update at the weekend. :)

      Where are we on this?

    3. Alphastream on June 25, 2015

      The steps are too small for minis. Could they be changed to be fewer steps so that minis could be placed upon them? Or as ramps?

      @Weresheep: Lol i guess that's a good response then ;) almost there :D
      @Terry: Wise choice xD
      @William: Thanks Bill, that's high praise indeed! Just the last hurdle to get over now, im looking forward to seeing how people paint these up :D
      @Autarkis: Haha ok, ill try and get an assembled dragon image soon ;) Yea, that alchemy table is fiddly to put together though! Im having to get a few parts revised. Hope you have some good tweezers! ;)
      @Zach: Lol, nearly there man :P
      @Deborah: I look forward to seeing how they turn out :)
      @Robert: Glad you like ;)
      @Josh: Thanks! 3D methods certainly had some big advantages over this campaign, but also some drawbacks too i guess, what with the print-time.
      @Rick: Yep, all on DF 1 inch tiles. There are more door types, but i didnt photo them all for this update. To name the types, going down:
      Single Extended Open Door

      Looks awesome!
      Thanksfor keeping us in the loop!

      Not quite. The whole LotR approx. word count is 455,125.
      Come on, Eddie, that just means we need more pics.

      Always assuming I counted correctly 84 Pictures, at 1,000 words a piece........Yeah, that pretty well covers Tolken, and covers all of the important parts of Wheel of Time I am pretty sure.

      Eddie if a picture is really worth a thousand words, i think you just re-wrote the Lord of the Rings, maybe Wheel of Time. Awesome pictures, great looking miniatures, really looking forward to my mountain of Resin.

      You guys never cease to amaze me. I'm really looking forward to painting some of this stuff. Keep up the good work.

      They are all looking brilliant, and I must say im very pleased with my bunnies lol. Cant wait to they come.

    14. Rick on June 20, 2015

      They look fantastic. I'm guessing that the seven doors are on Dwarven Forge tiles. If so, starting with the door beneath the skulls, could you tell us the width of each of the doors?

      Thanks, and keep up the amazing work.

      ... to my first point below: I was specifically thinking that now I have a one-stop shop for many of my accessory needs. That's a big deal since when you start buying all over the place shipping really starts to add up.

      Spectacular!

      ... I can't wait to get these!... I think one of the things that really blows me away is that in one Kickstarter you accomplished some amazing stuff that likely many here don't really consider:

      - created a huge line of new 28mm accessories in one fell swoop that runs the gamut of useful accessories for roleplaying, gaming, and dioramas
      - used 3D modelling techniques that are as skilful and artful as traditional sculpting
      - used 3D printing techniques in this whole process that, I'm sure, will become a major part of most, if not all, miniature companies in the future.

      I can't wait to paint these up and use them with my Dwarven Forge layouts!

      Shut up and take my money! ...oh wait, you already did! Can't wait!!!

    20. Autarkis on June 20, 2015

      These tiny glimpses of the dragon is seriously cruel and unusual punishment. Why would you treat me this way after I threw so much money at you, Zealot?
      Seriously though, aside from that, I love the Living & Boss doors, the map table and the alchemy bench the most.

    21. Willy on June 20, 2015

      Wow just wow ...

      This is probably the best Kickstarter ever, you have achieved so much lol while keeping up the communication with your backer base.

      Hat off Mister!

      I need to book a flight to pick my stuff up...now! (What was that sweetheart?) Um, maybe I should wait until it ships.

      Houston, we have a problem ... I was very much willing to wait, no hurry ... but seeing those pieces ... sorry, I have to say: GIMMMMEEEEEE - why aren't you shipping yet? ;)
