Design and Sculpting of Ancient Ruins II

Since its launch, Ancient Ruins has been one of the most popular base series at Dragon Forge Design. It is now time for a breath of fresh air with a well deserved complement series:  Ancient Ruins II. Such additions are usually implemented 2 or 3 sets at a time in order to gradually absorb the financial and labor cost of creating and producing new bases. With Ancient Ruins II, we could not limit our excitement. It is 15 new sets with over 50 new bases that will be released at once.  After months of overtime labor, we can say with pride that the sculpting is done, the masters are crafted and we are ready to move to production.

 Ancient Ruins II offer you a variation on its little brother. Even though the styles are slightly different, Ancient Ruins and Ancient Ruins II are fully compatible. Furthermore, Ancient Ruins II will offer you great possibilities for water effects with more "Waters Edge" than ever. These are recessed areas that allow you to pour your favorite water medium to recreate water, blood or toxic waste. A tutorial on water effect will be offered with every pledge. 

Six new bases sets will be offered at launch. They are as follows:

Round Lip Base Fans, Consider them unlocked! I decided I could unlock them early and move on to some extras for the round lips and some more terrain items!

 * I added these base sets as a stretch goal as I need the funding from it to release them and to keep sculpting more sets.

I added the $48.00 pledge level to make it easier for those only wishing round lip bases to pledge.

If you wish a mix of both bevel edge and round lip I will work it all out in the end in the pledge manager and you may add these sets to your pledge. These base sets can be added to any pledge. What is most important here is getting them funded :) 

Well you did it, you convinced me to add Round Lip style bases in the Ancient Ruins II theme to this Kickstarter. So welcome to Ancient Ruins II- Wave II 

28 new sculpts and conversions and 3 sleepless nights of non-stop work I bring you the following sets ready to go into molds.

These are the originals, ready for master molding so unlike the Bevel Edge, no painted copies yet to present.

Risks and challenges

Risks and Challenges

Even though this is Dragon Forge Design's first Kickstarter, we have proven our expertise in producing resin bases over our 7 years of existence.

All the bases are sculpted and master molded. So this product exists and is ready to go. No time will be spent sculpting as it is all done.

At completion of this campaign and funding, masters will be cast, production molds created and casting will follow. The only things that could cause any possible light delays are the following:

Replacement of worn out molds.
Material delays
Weather related delays.
The final size of this Kickstarter. As previously mentioned, this is our first Kickstarter campaign. If expectations are surpassed, measures will need to be taken in order to increase our production capabilities.

Serious issues to delay the completion time, listed as February 2015, are not expected.
