Dear customers, 

Dear painters,  

For some time we have not given you news of the progress of the project "World of Jean-Baptiste MONGE".  

All our energy was spent on order preparation and quality control.  

Our main delay is due to the waiting for series castings of several pieces, especially Tinkerbell and Ferret as well as several Crooks that we have made again after a minimal defect.    

Those who have already had the chance to receive their order know our requirement of fineness and quality of sculpture and also of molding but necessarily a manufacture of molds slow and complicated.  

Nevertheless our subcontractor the molding company "GRX creations" works hard to their fabrications as evidenced by these recent photos:

We delivered about 300 "pledger" customers out of the 500 who contributed to the project. 

We thank very much the customers not yet delivered for the reasons mentioned above for their patience and trust.  

We have recovered all the miniatures painted by Jean-Marc BRISSET and they are beautiful: it is a joy to admire them with their little details

The 3 tutorials offered as gifts to kickstarter participants have been unlocked and you have received one or more emails.

Chers clients,

Chers peintres,  

Depuis quelques temps nous ne vous avions pas donné de nouvelles de l’avancement du projet « World of Jean-Baptiste MONGE ».  

Tout notre énergie a été consacrée à la préparation des commandes et au contrôle qualité.  

Notre principal retard est dû à l’attente des moulages séries de plusieurs pièces dont particulièrement Tinkerbell et Ferret ainsi que plusieurs Crooks que nous avons refait fabriquer suite à un défaut minime. 

Ceux qui ont déjà eu la chance de recevoir leur commande savent notre exigence de finesse et de qualité de sculpture et aussi de moulage mais nécessairement une fabrication des moules lente et compliquée

Néanmoins notre sous-traitant la société de moulage « GRX créations » travaille d’arrache-pied à leurs fabrications comme en témoigne ces photos récentes :

Nous avons livré environ 300 clients « pledgeurs » sur les 500 qui ont contribués au projet. Nous remercions énormément les clients pas encore livré pour les raisons évoquées ci-dessus pour leurs patiences et confiances. 

Nous avons récupéré toutes les figurines peintes par jean-Marc BRISSET et elles sont magnifiques: c'est un vrai bonheur de les admirer avec leurs petits détails minutieux

Les 3 tutoriels offerts comme cadeaux aux participants du kickstarter ont été débloqué et vous avez reçu un ou plusieurs email.  

Bonne lecture!  

Il est possible que vous ayez reçu plusieurs fois chaque tutoriels suite à un bugg de notre logiciel d'envoi.Ne tenez pas compte des doublons ou autres, il y a bien que 3 tutoriels différents.

      @Ivan Berov
      Hello Ivan, your package was sent only yesterday but with a registered number and insurance.

      Just wanted to ask what delivery service are you using?
      Are we to expect a tracking number?

      Asking because I don't exactly trust my local post office. I might have to regularly check for updates on their side. I confirmed my address on 24 04 2018. What time does it take for the package to be sent and delivered?

      Awesome work!

      I am more than happy to wait. I loved the concept of these minis from day 1 and I would rather the time was taken to properly produce them.
      So excited! They look fantastic!

      They look fantastic! Believe me these are worth the wait - thank you for taking care to make sure they are the best quality. Great update!
