For those who have been awaiting the core 8(for ages) here is your update!
The core 8 was mastered in the summer, however production was delayed as there were some issues we found with some weak points, as well as the fact some of the minis (Arthur and Lancelot) were multiple parts.
We decided to hold production until after a meeting (at Gencon) with the manufacturer. After discussion we solved some of the issues, and made certain they could all be done in one piece, and have the weaker areas corrected.
The core 8 were then sent together with the other 19 to be mastered and produced all together.
We plan to make pre-orders available before delivering the minis to backers. This will give Albion's mini backers the chance to order any of the additional minis they want and still get free shipping. It also allows other backers from this campaign to grab some at a slight discount before we set them for retail.
Backers will get priority order for shipping.
We don't have a date yet as Lynnvander's production is occurring first, to meet his shipping deadlines and satisfy his 3 Kickstarters. Once they are finished, our production will begin. We will make another update here or on our facebook page
PHOTOS OF THE MINIS!
Now here are some shots of some of the other 19 Albion's minis and another shot of Lancelot who now comes in one piece!
REVISED LANCELOT (now one piece)
The masters for the core 8 miniatures for Albion's Legacy have arrived. They are outstanding! The metal is very high quality, for those who know miniatures, its the same metal used by Infinity the game.
These minis have an impressive weight to them, which may not be ideal for shipping, but when you have them in your hands, there's no doubt the to the quality and they have a feeling of... majesty? Its awesome!!!
Casting will begin shortly once Lynnvander receives their copies and gives the go ahead :)
For those who may be attending Origins Game Fair Lynnvander should have his copies in time to bring down with him for you to see in person!
For those wondering how the rest are progressing, we will be releasing a completed sculpt every day for the next two-three weeks, starting.... Monday I believe.
So what else is in the pipeline?
You may remember the one dragon character we had in this campaign as a stretch goal!
Well, we mentioned it while back, last year actually, that we decided to do a full campaign on them! But, as we were working, it became more, not just a set of miniatures, but an entire world..
