ello Backers!

So, we're in the last couple of weeks of the campaign now, time for an Upgrade goal!?


Buttresses.


This here is a buttress. Ya'll add it to buildings to make the buildings pretty-like.

If we make it to 2600 pledged, all Gothic Sets will be upgraded to include two buttresses on each plastic sprue.

Yes, that's right, for every Hamlet sized set (10 sprues) purchased, you'll get twenty buttresses!


Also known as Butts.
 

Please pledge unwisely, because I'd like to include buttresses in every Gothic Set!

Thanks,

- The Team @ Troublemaker Games

Hello Backers!

So, we have achieved our 2600 stretch goal target of the free Buttresses on the Gothic Theme sprues, hooray!

Now, as the campaign looks unlikely to bring in enough cashola to open up the Cyberhive Theme tiles, I've suspended them until our next campaign (or unless we get a huge run on pledges in the next twelve hours, in which case they'll come back into play?!?), and the next Stretch Goal will now be at 3250 - Upgraded Details for the Mixed Theme Sprues.



In this Stretch Goal, the rear sides of the Industrial style panels, which currently are smooth & plain, will be upgraded to have some cool industrial details on them!

And to help us on our way, how about a fun Top Up extra?



Resin Domes!

These Resin Domes are now available for pledging in two different kit sizes, 4x Domes or 10x Domes. They're sized to fit onto the plastic building tiles, and add some cool aesthetic choices for your gaming table.

As a Top Up, only Backers that pledge for a Plastic Buildings Set of Hamlet size or above are eligible to pledge for them, and there will be no extra postage & packaging charge for Domes.


Thanks for listening!

Tooling Ordered, plus a new plastic set UNLOCKED?!?!
Hi Backers!

So, it's taken us a couple of weeks of back and forth work with our toolers, and we've now ordered the sprue moulds to be created... and here's one last surprise...



Plastic Gothic Details

We've now unlocked Gothic Details sets for purchase!

The sprues contain bridge support arches, quarter-arches, and parapets, and we hope you like them!?



Sprue Layout

The sprue mould has already been ordered, so they'll be delivered alongside the rest of the moulds for ~late November...

...so, if you want to add a top-up of Gothic Details Sprues to your pledge, we'll keep the Indiegogo funding page running for another week or so in order to take orders for them.

Thanks for all the support!

Hello Backers!

The factory have sent me some pictures of initial production testing - we should have samples in hand by Wednesday or Thursday to check over, but they look good from what we can see this end...

There is some discolouration in the plastic mix used for this test shot, but the factory say that it shouldn't happen on the production run, and won't affect surface texture even if it does.

Note, nobody is going to be receiving live ducklings in the post.

Thanks for the support everyone; we'll be closing the Crowdfunding page to new contributions once we have the production run in. If you want to take advantage of the discounted big pledges, now's the time. Or, like, tomorrow. Now-ish, anyway.

Thanks everyone!

Resin Dome test cast & Brandon the Architect!
Hi Backers!

First off: We now have about a third of the plastics sprues delivered to us, and are expecting the remainder within the week, at which point the Crowdfunder will be closed to new bids, ye have been advised, last orders gentlepeople!

We've also had a test cast of the resin dome delivered to us:


It is dome shaped!

It fits nicely onto the plastic wall pieces as expected, and looks vaguely dome shaped, so we've thus ordered the full production run; we've been advised we'll have those in during December.

Ben has also finalized the design of Brandon the Architect, the free 6mm scale Cybershadows Supreme Commander figure for every Backer that was the final Stretch Goal target. He'll be rushed into production ASAP, and should also be ready for December.



Despite being humanoid in shape, Brandon the Architect stands a full 9mm tall - just as he constructs many buildings for his clients, so too has he apparently constructed a new hulking body for himself. Whether anything biological at all remains under his robes, none can say.

Thanks for your patience everyone, we're getting closer and closer to delivery every time the planet spins about a bit.

Thanks,

- The Team @ Troublemaker Games
