Nothing makes me more happy, than being able to say; there are just 35 pieces left to prototype for the Kickstarter! :D
Once all the design tweaks and prototypes are done, moulds are made - its a linear process of casting what pieces everyone has chosen, and delivering it to you! (..time consuming... but linear! ;) )
So what pieces have i found to take pictures of today for a much needed update? :D
Elkor is cooking up some heroic brew with the new cauldrons casts. Casting thin walled, hollow cauldrons? No problem :D
Here is the original Fireplace, still wet :) Ill be adding all sorts of clutter on the mantlepiece when i get around to painting mine :D
Many backers wanted more variety to their treasure chests, so here is the print of the Treasure Chest Upgrades set. Clothing, Potions, Snakes and a Spear Trap!
The Magic Portal underwent a big change in the breakdown, its much more flexible now because you can assemble it as an inactive or active version, by using the portal insert or not.
Game of Thrones? ;)
Can you guess what just printed? Still encased in the wax support material
Or can you guess what is printing right now from this wax support raft? :P
The Chaos Stone is casting fine. I love how it defies gravity :D
All the Equipment is also done. Kudos to Mikhail on a great set of sculpts there :)
And Elkor tries to switch the Goblin Idol out from the Treasure Trap ....
..but he's misjudged the Idol's weight with his bag of sand! ;) The trap's center section lowers down!
Gargoyles are getting there gradually. Going to be an awesome pair of models ;)
A serious bit of info at the end here :)
According to the revised plan we are aiming to dispatch Early Backers at the end of April (that's next month!) and then straight after, Regular Backers will be sent in waves of 100 people according to your backer number and if we have received your Pledge Manager, if we dont have your manager at the time, you move to the following wave.
Best case scenario is we start shipping end of April, if everything goes without any problems from now on.
In the reality, it only takes one pieces of scenery to give us a problem going from digital -> cast (im looking at you, Unholy Circle!), dropping a prototype (have reprinted the previously broken double portcullis now), sculpts holding us up (yep the Dragon (Drags-on..) and gargoyles are still being worked on) or printer issues - and dispatch could be pushed back a couple of weeks.
Ill aim to keep everyone informed, here in the updates or in the comments, during the countdown to the start of shipping :D
Good luck down there, adventurer!
