Those look stunning, i purchased the early bird package 1 min before the offer ended after contemplating the cost etc. but seeing so many amazing stuff packed in it, makes me super happy. Get them Glinthawks bois!
Maarten, this is the beauty of economies of scale. The cost of making a thing decreases when the number of those things you make increases. So the more backers there are, the cheaper it becomes for Steamforged to make each box of stuff, and they can afford to put more stuff in.
Let's say it costs $1000 to build the tools to make a miniature, and it costs $1 in plastic to make a miniature, then the cost of making just 1 is $1001. You sell it for $2 and you've lost a lot of money. If you make 1000 then the cost is $2000, you sell them for $2, you break even. Make 1000 more and hey presto, $1000 profit!
Hope that helps to make you feel less nervous.
I just hope it gets funded enough to get the more popular characters from the game. I think other Derek is right and that is Dervahl. It would suck to have him without A Rost or an Erend.
Actually... bulk makes everything cheaper, going to a factory with 500k or 100k makes a lot of difference.
The models are being paid for, that's why they're stretch goals. Raise 'x' more than the goal, that money will be used to produce additional content.
Okay so I don't want to complain, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. There's already a lot of stuff in the base pack and all these extra models that you're giving to -every- backer aren't exactly being paid for.
Having said that though, any chance for an Ikrie model? She'd fit right in.
Looks like Dervahl is after the Glinthawks.
Awesome work guys. Thanks.
