Production Update

Hello all,

With the risk of sounding like a broken record... production is still going well! In fact, we are not far off being finished with the metal casting completely! 

The resin casting however, has been a slower process than we expected. Removing the casts from the moulds is a delicate art and we have to take our time with it.  We are doing something to try and counteract this increase in production time: we've purchased a second pressure tank! 

So, for this brief update, we'd like to say we're still on track for March shipping, but just slightly later in March. 

One final bit of info, many of you will have had the notification that we locked the pledge manager down mid-Feb, so you can no longer change your pledge or address. We have been accepting the odd request to change pledge sizes via messages, but we're now at the point where we really can no longer change sizes as our pick lists have been populated and the bulk of the miniatures have been cast. Though if you need a last minute change of address - we can sort that for you.

 We've primed up a few of the cast 28mm metal miniatures using our normal pre-shading technique (Black, grey & white primer) to show you some of the detail on them.

 KICKSTARTER UPDATE -

It looks like we may have a delay with the Kickstarter release time. Kickstarter have still to review the project and it looks like they don't work weekends, unlike ourselves!

Kickstarter say -
"Due to the high volume of project submissions we're currently receiving, our turnaround time is longer than usual. Rest assured, we're working diligently to respond as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your patience in the meantime."

We will keep you updated with any news, but worst case, it looks like will will have to delay the launch until tomorrow at the earliest.

Just to give you a quick update on progress, we are still on schedule for estimated shipping date. We have about 3 weeks worth of casting to complete, but in the mean time we will start the packing process.


At the moment all miniatures are being quality checked for defects (Helen has this awesome job!). They then go through a wash process, so when you receive them they are ready to assemble and paint.


We'll post images of the resin 75mm versions next week once we have some bases cast.

This image shows the metal miniatures that have their bases cast, we'll post more images soon.
