Campaign Update #49 - Coins are here! Final Mass Production Begins!

Hi there backers,

We're back for our regular weekly update and with some great news for the new year. 

The Coins Have Arrived

 
That's right. The Fedex delivery arrived on Friday and Allen from Rule & Make has spent the weekend going over them. Apart from a minor error with the 3 during pre-production sampling (the back side was mirrored) the video below shows that the final production pieces have been corrected.

At first, we made the faces of the coins higher than the edges so that players with chubby no-nailed fingers (like Allen and myself) can easily pick up the coins druing the game but seeing them in person now, I'm blown away how much that fine detail adds to the dwarvish nature of the coins. What fantasy dwarf doesn't have chubby fingers?

Even more coins...

So, with the base game in production, the KS-Exclusive items getting approved last week, and the coins being approved this week, that can only mean one thing...

Smiths of Winterforge Enters Mass Production

That's right backers. Everything has been approved at a production level so the entirety of Smiths of Winterforge's components are now in mass production at our manufacturers. Alistair from Rule & Make will be talking to our contact this week to lock down time estimates for manufacturing completion so we can put together a solid fulfilment window in time for next week's update.

Until then, 

- Dylan, Aaron, and the Smiths of Winterforge team

      @Danilo The Anvil pledge comes with 50 metal coins. Each add-on pack also has 50 coins.

      How many coins came in a pack?

      Every backer will receive a pack just for pleadging right? How many coins I will find in the standard pledge if I do not any extra?

      Let me know until the closing of add on order.

      Hey backers. In case you missed our email a few days ago, Smiths of Winterforge has now entered mass production which means it's time for us to lock down add-ons. As of Monday, 15th of Janurary at 9 PM AEST, you will no longer be able to include add-ons with your pledge.

      In particular, our custom metal coins will no longer be available; and we aren't planning on making them again.

      If you would like to add extra sets of metal coins to your pledge, log into the Smiths of Winterforge pledge manager at https://kickd.net/sowf/ and go to the add-ons section to purchase any add-ons.

      Thanks :)

      @Joshua Germenis: The manufacturer only sent a smaller sample of the coins. What you see in the photo are only 33 coins.

      Is the pile of coins in the video a standard set of 50?

      There just added 4 more sets for a total of 8 extra sets. Metal coins are insanly expensive in Europe due to tax. I could resell these for dubbel the amount per pack hands down.

      Not that im gonna. Just a exempel of how expensive it would be to import.

      @Acesofdeath7 I on the other hand am disappointed in myself for NOT adding more coin packs, these are beautiful!
