Production photos, new Odyssey sculpts
Production of the Nymph sets is in full swing and moves along smoothly. Well, there was one slight hiccup, but it has no bearing on the production schedule or fulfillment timing. You’ll find production sample photos below.
That one small hiccup was the Labyrinth Nymph’s head. We even showed it in the last update, but were ultimately disappointed with the quality of the cast. The head is round-shaped and the face is slightly protruding from the hair, meaning we always lost a tiny bit of detail no matter how we tried to cast it. Dissatisfied, we went back and retooled the model. No worries, we didn’t change the way she looks! We just added an additional cut through the head - we scooped it up, so now it comes in to parts, the face and the hair.
Most of the Nymph’s are really straightforward, with few separate parts, but as we were reworking the head - and preparing the Night Nymph for casting - we thought it would be neat to create these small guides for you to fall back on. I fondly remember putting together Lego with a manual in hand and sorely missing one when trying to build the KDM Phoenix or Lonely Tree. So, it’s almost 100% confirmed we’ll be doing graphical guides for putting together the Nymphs. It’ll be a great exercise before the larger and more elaborate Odyssey figures (well, see below). I don’t know if we’ll be able to add the guides to the boxes, but if not, we’ll put them online.

So, here’s a few photos taken by your truly (so excuse my lack of photo skills!).
Aeon Trespass: Odyssey production
Odyssey is also coming along nicely. We’re hiring additional 2D and 3D artists to help with the workload, we’ve just charted two additional sets (I know I’m a bit vague here) with their separate color palettes, so we can branch out and do a lot of stuff out of order, which greatly improves our workflow. We’re gearing up to do a test run in resin of some on the new miniatures this Summer. This will greatly help our 3D graphic artists, both with the scale and with figuring out what is and isn’t feasible.
I’ll leave you with a few of the new sculpts. Like Herodotus, these titans are the very first ones you’ll get to use in-game, and their equipment reflects that. Herodotus was armed with a Shipbreaker Shield made of a bireme’s bow. Here, Solon (known also as Athens Prime) is brandishing a club made from a petrified great tree recovered from the bottom of the sea, with a hastily attached ram’s head taken from a local statue. Ulyssea is armed with a Longmast Spear (with some tattered sail and a crow’s nest still attached) and a Wheel Net.
Oh, we also have a WIP Hekaton, along with his very own Drum-heart!
