Dear contributors and painters,  

Here are some important news about the work in progress on the kickstarter "World of Jean-Baptiste MONGE".

  • 1. Delay  

Despite all the energy and care given to our project and our achievements, we are behind by several months.

We do not want to postpone a delivery date for now but probably early in 2018.

But instead of good news: "Tinkerbell", "Ferret" and "Knocker with Maul" are entirely sculpted and the miniatures are breathtaking finesse and quality!

  • 2. "Knocker with Maul"

Admire the finesse of sculpture work by Stéphane CAMOSSETO on this magnificent concept of Jean-Baptiste MONGE!

 

  • 3. "Ferret"

Big slap artistic by Valentin ZAK on a beautiful illustration.

Look at the details and texture rendering!

 

 

  • 4. "Tinkerbell"

A little gem see a little masterpiece that this fairy tribute to Peter Pan's bell fairy on this beautiful tit.

Imagine the number of hours of work on this sculpture!

Thank you Patrick MASSON.

 

Only the reference "Beheading Trunk" has not yet been realized: the sculpture begins in the next days

  • 5. Realization of prints

Major work of technical adjustment, molding and production by “GRX creations” which partly explains the delivery time

He has to rework certain elements with the sculptors to guarantee an optimal casting of series and a level of certain quality: it's the big challenge of the next weeks!

  • 6. Painting

Jean-Marc BRISSET has almost completed his long and painstaking custom painting work and unique (he has 1 or 2 copies left)

  • 7. Packaging and sending

Big work for our team that will require all our energy in early 2018.

We are currently working on the choice of blister models and packaging visuals. Thanking you for your support for this wonderful project

Chers contributeurs et peintres,

Voici quelques nouvelles de grandes importances concernant le travail en cours sur le kickstarter “World of Jean-Baptiste MONGE”.

  • 1. Délai

Malgré toute l’énergie et le soin apporté à notre projet et à nos réalisations, nous accusons un retard de plusieurs mois.

Nous ne voulons pas avancer de date de livraison pour l’instant mais probablement en début d’année 2018.

Mais place aux bonnes nouvelles: “Tinkerbell”, “Ferret” et “Knocker with Maul” sont sculptés intégralement et les figurines sont époustouflantes de finesse et de qualité!

  • 2. ”Knocker with Maul”

Admirez la finesse de travail de sculpture de Stéphane CAMOSSETO sur ce magnifique concept de Jean Baptiste MONGE!

 

 

  •  3.”Ferret”  

Grosse claque artistique de Valentin ZAK sur une magnifique illustration.

Regardez les détails et le rendu des textures!

 

 

  • 4.”Tinkerbell” 

Un petit bijou voir un petit chef d’oeuvre que cette fée hommage à la fée clochette de Peter Pan sur cette superbe mésange. 

Imaginez le nombre d’heures de travail sur cette sculpture! 

Merci Patrick MASSON

 

Seule la référence “Beheading Trunk” n’a pas encore été réalisée: la sculpture débute dans les prochains jours 

  • 5. Réalisation des tirages 

Gros travail d’ajustement technique, de moulage et de production par la société GRX créations qui explique en partie le délai de livraison 

Il lui faut retravailler certains éléments avec les sculpteurs pour garantir un moulage optimal de série et un niveau de qualité certain : c’est le gros défi des prochaines semaines! 

  • 6. Peinture de commande

Jean-Marc BRISSET a quasiment terminé son long et minutieux travail de peinture personnalisée et unique (il lui reste 1 ou 2 exemplaires) 

  • 7. Packaging et envoi 

Gros travail pour notre équipe qui va nécessiter toute notre énergie en début d’année 2018.

Nous travaillons actuellement sur le choix des modèles de blisters et les visuels du packaging. 

En vous remerciant de votre soutien pour ce magnifique projet

      The minis look wonderful - well worth the wait.

      I am soo glad I took the Knocker with Maul. Looks incredible!!

      How tall is the Tinkerbell Miniature in total (including the branch and the bird)? This is one of the finest minis I have ever seen! I am really thinking about buying this one, as well. What a beauty...

      Thank you so much for your comment.
      Superb work of the scultpeurs.
      The miniatures of the kickstarter will be on sale in the trade but end 2018 and at a higher price than the kickstarter if it is the question

    4. Randalee Grubinski on

      So excited to see the work thats completed, it is well worth the wait for these exciting pieces!! Will there be extra pieces to purchase once they are ready??

      @Black Phoenix Games
      Thank you for your comment
      The pledge manager is still open so you can make new purchases and add the thumbnails you want.
      However, the pledge manager is only accessible to kickstarter participants

      @Paint'Riot Studio

      On clôturera le pledge manager le 10 janvier à minuit !

      @hithwen

      thank you for your advice.
      In fact the elves on the ferret look less "evil" from other angles of view.
      The concept shown during the kicksarter was reworked and the large format glasses were difficult to achieve and moldable
      "Ferret" is incredible in real life.
      very soon other viewers of this miniature

      Also, hope it is ok, I just shared the image of the Tinkerbell model and I think, if you allow late pledges on the manager, I have just made 2 sales for you :-) Don't worry, I don't charge much commission ;-)

    10. Black Phoenix Games on

      Oh my good lord... that Tinkerbell is amazing, truly one of the most incredible miniatures I have seen.... please tell me that there will be a pledge manager option where backers will be able to buy additional miniatures they didn't originally pledge for? :-)

      Le pledge manager est étendu jusqu'à début 2018 ?

      Tinkerbell is awesome. I am however not very happy with the ferret change of the elf with the glasses shown in the original illustration (the one we got in the mail update) to this version. While with the glasses he looked a lovely elderly now he looks evilish
