Production Update - Wave 2

13 likes

Happy new year to all our backers!

We hope you had a relaxing and pleasant holiday season and that you are looking forward to 2018 as much as we are. It's going to be a BIG year for Twisted!

The early part of this year will see Wave 2 complete and on its way to all of you who are awaiting Wave 2 Rewards. Thank you all very much for your patience. We are working hard to get everything complete and, after resolving some small issues with a few minis that needed work before production, we are now making very good progress.

All of our miniatures go through the same process: Once we have the master sculpt in hand from our brilliant sculptors (or Sebastian himself) it is checked over for potential moulding issues. Often some initial small adjustments are made to ensure a sculpt will cast properly.

A few 'master' copies are then cast in a heat resistant resin and again checked for faults. If all is OK at this stage these masters are sent to Nic at Eureka, who makes a test mould as part of one of his general production runs. This sometimes reveals other problems as metal behaves differently to resin and, on occasion, further adjustments need to be made.

Once we are sure the minis are casting properly and we're happy with the quality, Eureka makes tough, vulcanised production moulds which are spun multiple times to provide us with production samples. These are then sent back to us and we check again for any faults before giving Eureka the OK to produce a full run of the models in question.

As you can see it's a bit of process, as this needs to happen for every single miniature! We do thank all of you for your patience. We'll have a good idea of the shipping timeframe for Wave 2 soon but it's not that far off - production is well underway.

On the Wave 2 rules front everything is proceeding well. We are going through internal testing for a few mechanics at the moment for the Egyptians and Guild of Harmony, and will be running some other, external, playtesting of them soon.

That's all for now - in the next update we might talk more about the Guild of Harmony and how the Mercenary rules will work in Twisted.
