Raging Heroes: Produktion kommt gut voran
Raging Heroes sind mit der Produktion ihrer Kickstarter-Modelle beschäftigt und sie kommen dabei offensichtlich gut voran.
Zum einen können sie neue Sculpts zeigen:
Und die Produktion läuft offenbar gut (Hervorhebungen durch BK-Online):
We’ve also involved ourselves much more in the mould-making process, and this week’s tests are showing that we should be able to fit up to twice as many miniatures per mould as originally planned. So, of course, this means quicker production time, which is a good thing given the volume of this Kickstarter. And we’re also working on other secret-weapon techniques for casting…
Also, if things go as planned with the casting process, we could end up with nice little sprues that will greatly help with the picking and sorting (which means, again, faster production) and will help keep sorting errors to a minimum. And if these little sprues happen the way we want them to, they will be great to help you pick, choose and sort the various parts you want to use and make your mix-and-match process of the multipart units more pleasant.
Upcoming first wave
This has also a great impact on what the waves will be. Even at this time, it’s hard to give you a definitive list of the Troops, Support and Heroines for each wave, because the workflow keeps on evolving and improving nearly every day, and so, it opens up new options for us. This new workflow is like a big locomotive: it started slowly, and was very demanding at the beginning, it pushed everybody here out of his/her comfort zone, but every day, it’s picking up speed and is getting more efficient.
What it means for you is that the first wave might actually be larger than originally planned, although it will probably be available later in the Fall rather than earlier.
Right now, here is what COULD BE in the first wave:
- all the Regular and Heavy Troops (both the Troops and the Command Boxes) for all 3 armies (so 50 different sculpts)
- between 10 and 15 Heroines (which should include Cruz, Tanya, Bernadette, Mimi, Punky, Krüger, Hilda, Nepharyaa, Volga, Karmina, Aaqila, Drusilla)
- Harry the Hippo
- Possibly a few more Heroines
- And maybe all the Artillery for all the 3 armies (this means 9 other box sets)
Again, please note that this is not a FIRM schedule, but we are doing everything we can to make all this part of the first wave. Depending on the sculpting workflow as well as the casting, we may end up releasing a slightly different selection of miniatures.
