Use this space to cheer the creator along, and talk to your fellow backers.
Have a question?
Almost three months without an update. I guess that that means "no progress here" but please give a sign of life that some time is being put into this at least. I do not think that you have abandoned this project, but a small ping every month is not that much to ask considering what some of us put into this :)
Looks like Andy Hopp isn't talking to me, even though he has logged on at least twice since I messaged him more than two weeks ago. Maybe a review on his products over at DTRPG might get a response. Very disappointed Andy, very disappointed.
Did I see you post new minis on your FB page?
Did you get the message I sent last week?
So if we've moved since this ended, how do we let you know what our current mailing address is? I'd hate for these to go to my address 3 places ago (I'm in the Army and move every 2-3 years).
Yay for good news!
Ok how much is shipping on what you have completed and where do I send it?
"I'm sorry it's been a while since I've posted an update. I should have a more in depth update for you very soon"
Happy Birthday, Andy!
These are the fifth Birthday wishes in this campaign. I Wonder what will be first:
men on mars or minis in mail �
To join the choir: please communicate. It has now been more than two months since the latest update.
At this point I'd accept to get the existing minis and at a potential later point when everything is done pay additional shipping for the rest or something.
Andy - After all our waiting can you please provide options on where to go from here. I am not confident that this kickstarter is ever going to deliver. :(
Backed this all those years ago and have up until now declined to make any comments but I felt that now is the time. I love the art style and the minis already made look great (though I have only seen them in pictures...). But the amount of communication from Andy isn't acceptable right now i feel. The project is delayed by years! The fact that virtually nothing has happened in a long time makes me doubt that the effort put in from the creator is anywhere near what it should be. Regardless of how off initial estimates where, how badly one is conned by business partners and how life unfolds it is my sincere opinion that this operation should have been completed a long time ago had the effort been there. The least I would expect is taking the time to actually write updates monthly, when now even that is not happening i felt I had to make myself heard. Is there a plan how to complete this project in plan? I would really like to see a updated spreadsheet with all models, at which step they are in production and a planned timeframe for the ones not finished. I do not at all wish to come out in a rude disrespectful fashion and have a huge respect for Andys artistical talent, I just feel that with the time passed and the lack of communication I'm obliged to make myself heard. My patience is very long but the line has to be drawn somewhere. If the project is in such a bad shape that I suspect I would also be interested in the refund mentioned below. Again, sorry if the tone is too grumpy, english is not my first language...
Andy - I assume the refund is not open to all? If it is then I'm interested.
After years of waiting and checking progress of this kickstarter I have accepted Andy's offer of a refund.
Good luck to those of you who continue to wait.
I'm trying, but I'm getting very sore fingers
Don't stop believing
Hold on to the feeling
Don't stop believing
Don't stop believing
Hold on to the feeling
The level of comms isn't acceptable, after such a massive delay I expect more effort from Andy to let us know what's going on.
So - any updates?
Happy New Year True Believers
So good news from Armorcast?
I think you might be right, Cash. Armorcast has promised they will have a significant number of minis ready by Con on the Cob (November 10). If they do not we will end our association with them and move on. It took a lot for them to convince me to give them another chance (another another) and wait until Con on the Cob, and I hope to be pleasantly surprised (but I'm not holding my breath). In the meantime, I am sending one green over to another local caster to see what kind of quality and timeliness we can get from him. If that doesn't work out it looks like I'll just have to eat the cost and go back to Valiant.
In related news, I'm sorry I missed a few comment lately. One of the consequences of our recent email/website hacks is that I wasn't getting emails from kickstarter when someone posts a comment. I think I fixed it now.
Yeah, looks like it's time to call Valiant :)
Still nothing to report?
So, some good news?
There is only one Blue Hiney. It has indeed been sculpted but Armorcast hasn't gotten around to casting it yet.
Which Blue Hiney was sculpted and cast up? #1 or #2?
I have a meeting coming up (probably next week) with yet another caster. While I like the terms of my deal with Armorcast, they are either not taking the project seriously or they are just too busy to get it done as promised.
We have 3 weeks and 6 days left to get this project finished, otherwise it will have taken longer to conclude than the American Civil War
Thanks for the reminder Kottjorgen. I just got back from GenCon, but I will post another update very soon.
Hi Andy! I would very much appreciate an official update even if there are no big news, just as an official sign of life. Since the last update was two months ago. Cheers!
Most of those are in Steve's hands at Armorcast waiting to be cast. :(
what about the Cremefillian riding the mutant land fish we saw a year or so ago? and the Tiznt?
Any news on sculpts for the Cornthulhu, horde of scary ass muthas & many hot dammits? Cremefillian War Party? thanks!
Thanks, Beagle. That means a lot to me.
I don't blame you Andy. The worst kind of frustration is when you don't know who or what to be frustrated at
I completely agree with you. I am more than a little displeased with the lack of progress.
Please remember, the offer laid out a couple of updates ago still stands (the one where people are free to choose from a variety of other products if they decide not to wait for the miniatures).
This is disappointing, there has been very little progress in the last six months.
Unfortunately only Clamsack the Corpulant (and only 15 copies of him at that). We spoke with Steve from Armorcast the week before last and he assured us production will soon step up. We'll see how that goes. I'll post an update as soon as I have any news to report.
It's been 6 weeks since the last update, how many more minis have been added to the list of those available in your post of 4th April?
Steve brought me about 15 copies of the completed Clamsack the Corpulant at Origins. We had a conversation about ways to help him get things together more quickly in the future. He did mention that he is working on several more molds and on fixing some problems in the original squoork sculpt. I am overwhelmed with work this week, but next week I will try to meet with him again to see what we can do to speed things up.
Let's hope it's not the Hubbel telescope
Time to exchange my binoculars for a microscope perhaps :-)
It's been a couple of weeks, how are things progressing Andy?
There is. Perhaps it's time to exchange our telescopes for binoculars...
Awesome, so there's actually an end in sight :)
