Have a question?
I just wanted to say that I asked Andy to send me the existing models and he did that directly. I know that this means that I might have to pay extra for shipping if there is a second batch, but now I at least have the currently existing ones.
Thanks for doing that Andy!
Also: the models are very nice and very quirky!
It may be time to visit Andy's Facebook page and other Kickstarter's in an effort to get noticed....
Well another 3 months with no word on anything. Andy please just an update a week, heck even a month even just to say no new news would make things better. But this silence makes us feel you dont care about this project at all.
And one more thing: is there actually a list of currently existing models?
As an international backer that has not received anything yet I asked Andy send me the models that currently exists.
When (if) the rest of the modells show up, I'll pay for a second batch of shipping.
This is not what I hoped for, but at least this way I get something tangible even if it not the amount of stuff I pledged for.
So I'm at least looking forward to getting something to paint :)
So how DO I get a refund? Another international backer here with zilch to show for a 190$ pledge and 5 years.
How about an update once a week until you actually start delivery???? This lack of respect for backers is pathetic.
ANYTHING about the delivery of the figures.... I understand the situation and the explanations - but surely after 5 years something..... yours very disappointed..
I agree with Jodee. I pledged $500 and have received VERY little in return. Pdf stuff means NOTHING to me, so promises of "pdf goodies" is CRAP. You took my money and have done what with it? I probably can't "legally" get my money back. As Jodee Maddock so aptly put it, "This will be the last. Andy, I would like to see some form of return on this investment or refund. Should you not be able to do this then I will go to the effort of ensuring I leave honest and lengthy reviews of your lack of capability and business ethics wherever I can. I encourage all other backers to do the same. This is deceit plain and simple."
Hey. Andy isn’t able to comment atm but will message you later today. We are actually still working on the minis. I backed it for at least one of every mini and I am waiting as well. He will chat with you today to go over options. Sorry about this.
I'm an international back so unlike some I haven't received a single mini from this in 5 years despite pledging over $200. Now I am a fairly generous person, and I get that kickstarter is not a storefront however when someone takes money without any intention of returning it or providing what was promised then that is theft. I see below that someone was successful in getting a refund...I have asked several times. This will be the last. Andy, I would like to see some form of return on this investment or refund. Should you not be able to do this then I will go to the effort of ensuring I leave honest and lengthy reviews of your lack of capability and business ethics wherever I can. I encourage all other backers to do the same. This is deceit plain and simple.
Love an update, will be awkward at gencon or some convention where i might run into you
Andy, that pic is the most buttfugliestcombobulation of all buttfugly pics! I will be more than happy to snag some of these new cool dudes too.
Groovy yet again.,..
Thanks for latest update; sample miniature picture looks awesome
Hey andy any signs of life for us? Its been so many years now. Ive personally finished college, advanced pretty high up on my field, and lost 180 pounds. This is wholly unacceptable to be this silent to those who have waited so long for this project. And on that note what about any of the special edition minis that were addon purchases? Have not seen word one on those in years. You owe us better treatment than we are getting from you.
I believe Andy has run out of money and has no intention of fulfilling this project. He has not bothered to respond to any of my messages where I offered to accept a refund now instead of product later and the rather expensive shipping costs associated with it. Prove me wrong Andy.
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?
