Risks and challenges

In any project where freelance talent is involved there is always the potential for unforeseen circumstances to push back the production schedule. Where possible we minimise this by conducting works in-house allowing us to rapidly respond.

Sculpting - We have an established working relationship with our freelance sculpting team and are able to work together in a timely fashion to rectify any issues that may arise.

Metal Mould Making - This work will be contracted out to professionals who we have worked with in the past and offer a reliable service.

Resin Mould Making - Dale has specialised in resin mould making for the last 20 years creating any moulds that are needed in house.

Metal Casting - Carried out by Craig in house who has 10 years experience with casting white metal.

Resin Casting - Carried out by Dale in house who has 20 years experience with vacuum and pressure casting.

Shipping - Shipping is always a concern, so we are offering free worldwide to help you help us.

Shipping Dates - Whilst we will do our very best to meet our estimated shipping dates there is always the potential with a project of this type where the required quantities involved by all the backers may exceed expectations. If this is the case we will work to keep backers informed of our progress through regular updates and expedite the work to completion.

Campaign management - Critical Mass Games has successfully completed the ZAS 15mm Mercs Campaign. This project funded at over 700% of it's initial target, it taught us many things regarding the running of a Kickstarter campaign.
The project was completed and delivered to all our backers in a timely fashion.
