We are definitely entering the last stages of the Kickstarter but have a final hurdle to clear.

What has been done:

The full production of the Ogre Warriors has been completed.

The full production of the Ogre Cannoneers has been completed. A picture of the first painted unit is below.

The bases and custom dice have ordered, received and packaged up .

I have also completed production of 7 of the 9 Armoured Warriors.

What is left is to produce is the Armoured Warrior Standard Bearer and the guy with a spiked mace / morning star.

The reason the my production has slowed a little, is that I needed to get the spiked mace guy re-sculpted. I wasn't confident in how he would mould and cast up and wanted to give you the best product I could, and so took a delay rather than compromise on quality. The picture below shows the problem. Left is the sculpt, middle is the 1st generation cast (with softening detail on the spikes), right is the new master (with much bigger spikes). A couple of the spikes are deliberately left short to simulate battle damage. Hopefully this new sculpt casts up better.

I now have a planned weeks break, due to kids and the Easter Holidays, and will then crack on with the remaining production and have everything out for delivery by the end of the month.

Thanks again for helping making this project a reality.

Cheers.
