Campaign Over, now the work begins!
Hello Backers!

I'd just like to say thankyou on behalf of John and his sculpting team for the huge support shown for this campaign, over £10k now!

We've elected to use the "InDemand" function on the campaign to keep it open for any last minute top up pledges for the next week.

The current plan is that, due to the unexpectedly huge amount of support shown for the campaign, dispatches will be sent in March rather than the originally planned February.

 

Thanks everyone,

- Ben, Campaign Manager

Tiny update on the Skinnerz' heavy artillery:

We have been tweaking the heavy artillery limbers, ready use ammo for the cannon, fuel pod for the missile and power cell for the energy weapon.

Final prints for funder 1.

Hello backers,

Quick update, the final set of prints have arrived been cleaned up and will ship to the casters this week, that took longer than expected but that is the nature of the beast I suppose. Casting has begun with the first print batch moulds, and batch two mould making is in progress, the images below show the batch three prints shipping this week.

As can be seen we now have two variant Hierarch's in the tainted command set and I decided that the Skinnerz tractor needed an engine boost plug in in order to tow those heavy arty carriages and we have a portable generator option too all added to pledges for free.

Regards John

Update from the crowdfunder:

State of play for the campaign pledges.

Hello again Backer's,

A little update to keep you all informed on just what's happening.

Good news, I have received this week another batch of campaign casts with more to follow by the end of next week. I will be checking over all this mountain of casts and separating them into individual pledges ASAP.

Bad news, there have been some issues with a lot of the infantry casts so in order to get the best casts possible to you all I have been working on correcting the problems this week and have just shipped the figures back to the casters for moulding. This obviously means that these figure sets will be further delayed with late May sometime as the best estimate for delivery to me I can give at present.

The following sets will be delayed, Tainted command, Tainted heavy armour, both Urban regulars sets, Skinnerz artillery crews, Eloi Phase walkers and female commissars.

So what I intend to do as far as practicable is ship out all pledges with what models I have available and send the delayed infantry sets in a second shipping wave once they are in. Obviously this is not ideal but at least you guys will be getting the majority of your orders and I clear a load of castings I have lying around here. Costly for me to do it this way but I hate to keep people waiting.

Hope you guys find this an acceptable solution.

King regards John
