November Update - Shipping of Wave 2 has commenced!

Posted by Shieldwolf Miniatures (Creator)

Hello everyone! :-)

We start straight away by saying that we would have liked this to be the final update for this campaign, but it seems there's still a (small) number of parcels that will not be able to be mailed tomorrow morning as we had planned. Although we put in very long hours of work this wekend to pull this through, we simply had to call it a day (it is 01.00 a.m. here in Athens) and have the rest packed and shipped during the 1st week of December. The main reason is that most of these parcels are large (much larger than wave-1) and we are taking care to pack them as neatly as possible (to overpower the abuse Post Offices around the globe usually have instored for them) so they may reach you safe and sound. We think people who have already received their rewards can testify of our good packing procedures.
 
Therefore it's going to be update #40 and not #39 that will conclude this project. Please expect it in the next days of December.

 360 degree view on the Shieldwolf website

We are also upgrading our 360 views on our webstore (or at least we are in the process of trying to do so). Although we already believe to offer a very clear visual of our range, we think we can do more! More precisely the files we have on our website (for those who are interested in the technical details) are .flash and do not show/play via Adobe on smart phones and similar devices. We are working on changing that to .html code so they literally show/play everywhere. This has to do with all the miniatures that you helped fund in this project but also substituting the old files.

In the meanwhile we have uploaded a few on YouTube, you can see by clicking on the images below.

Great War Mammoth conversion

We thought we'd post this over here since we liked the work done, although it's obviously for another game, our hobby side came out and we wanted to share it with you nonetheless. This is what one of the backers from this project did with his Great War Mammooth and kindly shared it with us!

Kickstarter-2: "Shieldmaidens vs Orcs"

There's no reason to hide our excitement for the upcoming Kickstarter. We may be packing rewards for KS-1 but everyone's mind is in what we have to show you in something like 40 days from now!
We have prepared a number of goodies for both sides, but given the weight is on the Shieldmaidens, well... ladies first, no? :-)

Here are two more designs we have been working on, the 1st is the evolution of what we showed you last month and still not absolute final design.
The second is a version we had not yet revealed. As always these are 28mm "heroic" scale models.

 We would like to make it clear that a T-stance is how we design the miniatures and not how they are posed. Given in this Kickstarter-2 we are again co-funding the product (and therefore will need it to sell at retail too in order to make back the investment), it is safe to expect dynamic and believable poses from these plastic models.

Please expect even more in the #40 update, where you will see final designs of a couple more Shieldmaidens. Valley Orc teasers are to be expected too but at a later date.

Hope you like them as much as we do :-)

Thank you.
The Shieldwolf Team.
