Last Saga: Modelle und Lieferupdate
Der Last Saga Kickstarter ist trotz aller Hürden auf dem Weg nun beinahe abgeschlossen! Spätestens Anfang nächster Woche sollen die letzten Pakete verschickt werden! In dem Newsupdate dazu gibt es viele Informationen zu veränderten Modellen (und leider einem, das nicht erscheinen wird), sowie zu Versand, Regeln und Andeutungen für Zukunftspläne. Außerdem dürfen natürlich Bilder der Modelle nicht fehlen!
Apologies first for taking so long in the promised update; but good news! After such a long time, the Last Saga Kickstarter is almost finished! This has been an unexpectedly long journey, but we are now in a position to finally fulfill the project and have a commercial release next month.
During this time, some aspects of the project have changed, so we are going to cover these issues right now:
Some models have changed from what was intended in the original project. Either simply because the original modeling was subpar, and it needed to be reworked to match the rest of the cast better; or because the original plan and agreement for the models were no longer possible.
Also, one model had to be left out undone: the Calamity for the Uruhvel has not been produced. While it seems the sculptor in charge had the T-pose of the model complete, we haven’t received any news for months; we didn’t want to wait any longer, so we have discarded that model from the project.
Because of that, all the backers that had included the Calamity in their pledge rewards will receive compensation, in the form of a coupon valid for the online store of Last Saga. Also, all Last Saga backers will receive a special code as was previously announced; it will apply a good discount to their first purchase in the online store. Those will be sent out in near future, when the online store is opened simultaneously to the commercialization of the game.
This is the full list of models in the Last Saga Kickstarter.
The changes and adjustments have been always on behalf the quality of the final model and product, trying to close the project as successfully as possible despite all the problems. We hope you understand!
Some backers have given us feedback about the difficulties when mounting some miniatures. Specially the Assault Biodrone can be hard to handle without having visual references, so we are posting an image here of its render and the painted miniature, along many others. In near future, this information will be included in the Last Saga website, which is almost finished.
About the Recruitment Cards, our initial plan was to provide them for each one of the models to help to keep track of the units in and out of games. As we focused all the efforts in having the best possible models, we discarded their production (no pun intended) because the high number of cards required was an inefficient way to spend the resources. Instead we preferred to add that information into the rulebook, making it much bigger than originally intended, and make available other forms of helping with unit’s information in games and outside of them.
The current rulebook is in Spanish language, being tested by a closed group of players: we did that because it is easier for us to test the system in our native language, and constantly updating both versions is inefficient speaking time-wise. During this month it will be polished and translated, so the English version will be released at the same time the Spanish version does. This release will be digital and free to download, as we had planned from the beginning. After its release, we might prepare physical version of the rulebook if the demand for it is high enough.
Finally, the shipping! It is almost done. It is. Believe it. All the packages are ready, only waiting for the Matriarch and Stalker to be included, whose are being produced while you read these lines; as the copies come out, the shipping will be done. Here some images of the final models:
The shipping should finish this week, maximum within the first days of the next one. When everything has been sent, another update will come, to finally close the project. As a final addendum, some more images of painted miniatures, in preparation for the commercialization of the range:
See you soon in the next update!
