All quiet on the Martian Front: Produktionsbilder
Alien Dungeon zeigen ein Update ihrer Kickstarter-Produktion!
We have been making strong progress but alas the plastics are not on pace at the moment. So, I am not sure what the final ship date is…yet. Still shooting for this month – January 2014. We will keep you posted.
Plastic Tooling – All the tooling is done, but I don’t have any shots yet. At the vendors, it seems everybody left for two weeks over the holiday. So, at this moment, we are still waiting for “first shots”. That will tell us how long the debug will take. “Debug” is the process of adjusting the tools to get the molds running perfectly. Once that is done, we start cranking out sprues – one every 13 seconds or so. NO ONE is more anxious for the presses to run on these than me so YES, I will keep you posted. Below, you will also find a picture of the plastic injection molding tools.
A huge amount of the metal and resin production is done and pack out has actually begun. There is a picture below of Zombies and Dough boys being packed. Yes, those are actually yours. Below is our first Martian Army done up all in production pieces. Sadly, we haven’t had time to use it much.
Print proofs are in too. They don’t have the right covers in terms of material, but they are complete and the inside is spot on with the right paper weight and resolution. We are reading through these and doing a final/final accuracy check right now. See the picture below.
We have lots of stuff – BEF, guns, guns, guns, Ironclads and so on. The trenches in both sizes are coming in as well. So lots on and we are busy. We feel concentrating on getting the manufacturing done and the ship date nailed down takes priority over everything else… but we will do our best to be more “regular” with updates.
Yours Ernie and the Alien Dungeon Team
