Yes, these were the ones, we tried saving it but it was way too much trouble and really not worth it for either parties; for us it would have been a pain, for the backers it would have been frustrating and (in the end) useless...
@Shieldwolf, I hope you all had a good holiday and brought back a stick of rock for whoever stayed back and managed the webstore!
A bit of a shame about the tusks but i see where your coming from, its been a while since the chains were spoken off, was they like the ones in the concept pic, on each tusk and flailing about?
We are back! :-)
Yep, those are mammo(o)th tusks in the baggies, had to take a picture of something regarding the huge beast but didn't know which! This is also a good time to communicate a number of issues we encountered with the chains on the tusks :-(
a. They kept destroying our molds after 4-5 casts, detail was going away. Not acceptable.
b. They resulted in problematic transfer due to the space occupied (one even broke). Not acceptable.
c. They caused gameplay issues (not possible to line up the enemy unit in front of the model). Again, not acceptable.
We have moved forward to abandoning the chain version I'm afraid and have included only the more "traditional" one. Hopefully people will comprehend the reasons behind this.
As for the tin cans, they are meant for something..."special" :-)
PS. If you drop in our FB page later on today we will be uploading a couple more pics of the production in progress (PiP)
@Shieldwolf, Great update, what is in the metal tins? Is there mammoth tusks pictured in the baggies?
Everyone at Shieldwolf have a good week off and enjoy the sun!
