Hysterical Games haben ein Update zu ihrem erfolgreichen Spitfyre Kickstarter online gestellt in dem Master Castings zu sehen sind.
So all of the figures for our first wave (the Starter Set and all unlocked freebies that come with that set) are 3D rendered, 3D printed and have made their way into Master Moulds. The next step will be to start making Production moulds and casting the miniatures to fulfil the first wave of shipments.
Worth pointing out that we played around with the Wings on the Wyverns and we think they better represent their historical counterparts!
Please also be advised that these are master castings, which we will use to make production moulds. There may be some variation in terms of placement of the supporting rods, to aid better casting, etc.
Leider gibt es in dem Update auch eine schlechte Nachricht. Die Flight Stands, welche über einen externen Zulieferer bezogen werden, verzögern sehr wahrscheinlich die Auslieferung des Kickstarters.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but there has been a little stumbling point beyond our control and, in the interest of open and honest communication, we thought we should tell you. Dice.co.uk are the UK and Europe’s main supplier of gaming components, including many of the plastic bases you will get from other manufacturers. They have been supplying flyings stands for a good number of years and well, sadly, their mould tool for the Flying Stands has broken and they have been out of stock for quite some time now. We have calculated that we’ll need roughly 10,000 flying stands, so we have been added to their queue of people waiting to get them. I cannot stress enough that we have costed the Kickstarter around these particular bases, at a price previously agreed with them so, although we would appreciate any suggestions you may have, please understand there may well be other reasons than ‘we don’t like them’ that we decide to not go with your suggestion.
We will, of course, keep you in the loop with this. If it’s clear the original plan has completely fallen on it’s face, then we will absolutely make sure to find another solution.
