Chaotic Alliance update

Okay had some good conversation offline and some of the posts on this thread have given me insight.

TP's post was good ... it asked the question:   When the original 500 castings of each of the limited figures was made ... was there a promise that no more of the model would never be created?

It was many years ago and I just do not know 100% the answer to that question.

So with that in mind ... I'm going to err on the expensive side as I said ... this is not about making money but doing the right thing by the backers and the community.

I will work with a sculptor to have the 7 older figures that were the limited to 500 castings sculpted again and I'll show them in future updates.

The metal versions will still be the original figures as that is from the original casting run of 500 and they are not extra castings so they are the original limited edition run of the figures.

The Trollcast team will only use the new versions of those 7 figures.   This will absolutely guarantee beyond any question that the mass produced team in Trollcast does not have any limited edition models in it.

This is not the cheap plan as I now need to have 7 new models created instead of spending that money making a Ogre Oni for the Divine Wind or a Djinn for the Desert Dogs ... but it makes sure that I am putting my money where my mouth is that reputation and integrity are really very important to me.

So consider this official.   The Trollcast version of the Chaotic Alliance will be getting 7 new sculpts that will look similar to the previous limited edition models but will not be brand new thus preserving the limited edition status of the metals.

As I get images of them ... I'll post them up.

      I agree with Jason York.
      Thank you Tom, and Impact, for continuing to be awesome members of our community.

      I don't think people should be worried about the value of their miniatures for a handful of different reasons.
      Mainly, their are many more important things to be worried about than the value of your minis. I am sure that their are hungry, underprivileged, under-educated, or elderly that could use the energy that they are wasting on on worrying about than value of minis.

      Also, if you buying individual minis as an investment, then I believe you should re-evaluate your investment strategies. I don't beleive that anyone is really going to be able to retire off of selling their miniature collection for more than the value of time and $ that they have put into it.

      Lastly, please everyone, remember that this is a hobby, it is entertainment, and the first priority if for all of us to have fun.

      I'm disappointed that you had to make this decision. Hopefully it will bring back some of the people that left, and I think it continues to speak volumes of you and your company for trying to do the right thing for everyone.

      As much as I want to see that Oni and Djinn... I think that this is the right move.
