As I'm sure many of you are aware, we are very quickly creeping up to our second phase of shipping!
I can confirm that by the end of November we will have started shipping phase 2 and will be able to complete approximately 90 percent or more of current orders! The expectation was 100 percent but we are still soldiering on and appreciate the continued patience and trust that you have given us!
There has of course been concerns over certain models and more specifically whether they will be ready in time. I am visiting casting tomorrow to question the capabilities of a rapid turnaround for the few select items that are yet to pass through production in it's entirety.
- What items?
- Goblin King
- Magma Trolls
- Orc Wyvern
- Wyvern Adolescent
- Great Eagle
Although certain items are in production, it will be tight with a few items that are currently in casting ( information will be attained tomorrow). The good news is that as we receive the new casts, they will be added to stock and orders will be unlocked on a daily basis for instant shipping once all items in stock for each order.
The incorporation of so many large scale models has certainly challenged us and added to our production time line; far beyond what we initially expected on our first release. Future releases will feature a smaller proportion of large and challenging models and give us a much faster turnaround! Check out some of the exciting and limited amount of larger models/stretch goals we have for our dwarves below!
This is a very exciting time for us as we reveal our first painting competition!
3 Categories and 4 prizes!
The most exciting part of the competition is undoubtedly the 'Pick a Character Prizes'!
If you win one of the 3 troll categories you will get the opportunity to work along side us as a creative consultant on a miniature!!
First of all you will pick what we make!
Must be :
or Dwarf related!
You will then be incorporated into the entire process of creation.. from initial sculpt to the final draft, in which time you will also be able to provide feedback!
You will also be acknowledged in the product description and be the first person to receive the samples of the miniature (excluding us of course)
So if you want to get involved for fun, or with full intent of taking the prize; if you know a painter who can steal this opportunity then please get involved!
The upload window goes live November 1st. But there is no sign up....you just need to have uploaded your final image by December 14th!
If you havn't got trolls already, there is still plenty of time to order!
Below is some of the progress we have made with our Dwarf Range! We've got some exciting mounts in the works and are still very much experimenting! So feel free to offer feedback and contribute to the development of the range!
Hand Sculpted Busts
We are constantly looking to challenge ourselves and have experimented with traditional methods. For me personally, it has been a very long time since I've worked with Clay. It is undeniably addictive and has its own charm.
Below are two busts we've been working on!
The life size bust is very unlikely to go into production due to the production costs and revenue we'd have to generate to take on such a venture. But it has opened up our experimentation of dwarves and helped to outline the style we'd like to achieve!
The smaller bust will be a stretch goal and will very likely go into production! The small bust will be steered more in the direction of what can be seen on the bigger guy!
