Quick update

Hey folks,

Just to quickly update you on last week.

Rob's got new replacement moulds on delivery for this week so we should see more metal moulds made this week to replace the failed moulds reported in the last update. Resin casting continues.

Notes from the casting room:

"Right, I'm still hoping to start shipping in August.
I'm still waiting on a batch of rubber to arrive from Italy.
I've done a full stock check and a number of things are completed. I've also made a couple more production moulds this week as well as a couple of replacement master moulds. The last batch weren't suitable for a couple of pieces (Mostly Viridian Turrets with mouldlines running right across the bloody top and a few bubbly Syntha tank Hulls).
I still believe that the resin will all be done by end of June. There may well be a couple of stragglers, but I want to keep those to a minimum."

So it will not be long now folks, we are almost there, it's been a long road and we are immensely grateful for all your support through this learning curve. The next one will take a fraction of the time.

Templates arrived from Red Vectors too.

      Cheers Shawn. Just sorry it's taken so long. After Prodos failed to deliver on time we had to fall back on Rob and his crew, and they took up the fight with great gusto, however the learning curve on the 6mm figures has been a real challenge, resins are fine, it's those wee fellas that have given all the grief. However, the guys are on top of it now, and things look very promising for the next expansion which we will start to tackle in September. More updated soon, keep the faith brothers :D

      Great news, we would love to see this shipping in August. Thanks for all your hard work.
      Blast markers look awesome and I will definitely be picking two up once they're available retail.
      Speaking of when this is available: We have 2-3 more members that may be getting full companies. Steven and I would like to get recon, urban, air supports, and of course more tanks to expand our vasa , syntha mixed companies.
      Cheers~
