Stretch Goal #1 unlocked

October 28th - via:
I think we are safely past 21K finally, so we can officially unlock the first stretch goal item. The figure is already done, so this is not too surprising. Now onto Azcalta, which has two minis and a staircase base.  (Read More)

Here we are with a couple of days left. I'm trying to get some WIP shots of starter figures so hopefully people will like what they see and join in. This is the Iron Conqueror Mech Construct for the Fortune Hunter starter, by Paolo Fabiani, with the... (Read More)

Cephalid Remote Viewer

October 26th - via:
Well, given that we are yet again unfunded it is probably a bit presumptuous to have a finished stretch item, but here we are, the Cephalid Remote Viewer by Bob Olley. This one is meant to be unlocked at 21K, so it is not out of reach anyhow.  (Read More)

Blast from the past

October 21st - via:
One thing brought up a while back in comments was Kalath the Reaver. This was really nice model that happened to die in production as the master copy was lost and we could not make more resin molds. When the Dragonblood line was sold to Cavalcade all... (Read More)

DeepWars Rewards

October 18th - via:
One thing we are trying to do is offer an option to get DeepWars items shipped in the November/December timeframe for the holidays, like what we did last year for the mini-kicker. I may need to temper that a bit by saying that metal items will be no... (Read More)

New Bonus Stretch Rewards

October 17th - via:
We now have additional bonus "points" as stretch rewards. Each point is roughly equivalent to one 30mm miniature, but multiple points can be used for books, starter sets, and other items. See the rewards sections to see what points can be used for.... (Read More)

Painted Dagathonan Brute

October 15th - via:
It is a bit slow right now, but at least I have a new painted mini to show. This is the Dagathonan Brute, a huge model that can work in ShadowSea and DeepWars due to it amphibious ability. As part of the Scaly Horde it is actually a mercenary that... (Read More)

Past 20K - to first stretch goal

October 11th - via:
Thanks to all that pledged! Nicholas's big pledge put us over the top, so we are now ready to go for the first stretch goal, the Cephalid Remote Viewer. This one will be unlocked at 21K, so we are already close. Once unlocked, it can be added for $8... (Read More)

Now that the Dragonblood minis have become rewards, one thing that is becoming clear is that the Order of Yosoth will have a few models coming out, but they are not currently scheduled on the stretch goals. What should happen is to put the Order... (Read More)

Bringing Dragonblood Back into the Fold

Templar Demon Slayer Sculpt

October 5th - via:
Here we have the almost completed Demon Slayer for the Fortune Hunters. Paolo did a great job capturing the motion of the figure. We're still working as fast as we can to finish miniatures before the end of the kickstarter so we can get some... (Read More)

Painted Heavy Biomech

October 1st - via:
Just a quick update. Here is the painted version of the Heavy Combat Biomech for the Dark Mariners. This one was originally meant for ShadowSea, but was made as part of a DeepWars kickstarter. It functions on land and underwater though, so it can be... (Read More)

More sculpting & some painting

September 30th - via:
It has been a turbulent last few days but we are still going. In the meantime, we got some more pictures of sculpting progress and a studio version of the Nautiloid Chrysalid for DeepWars, just to show what can be done when painting these minis using... (Read More)

Richard Hale from Battleboards.UK has come up with a more affordable way to make the fabric maps with rubber backing, so we will work with him and do a short run for the Kickstarter, to "test the waters" as it were. If this is a popular item, we may... (Read More)

Swim Stands Added to Reward Options

September 23rd - via:
We added the DepWars acrylic swim stands as optional rewards. These are a nice way to show depth for models and can double as flight stands fro flying creatures in ShadowSea (just remove the seaweed). They are expensive to produce but we priced them... (Read More)

possible painted minis and battleboards

September 21st - via:
I'm thinking of going against my better judgement and re-introducing the painted miniatures into the rewards, and even possibly including battleboards like the Shallow Shelf one from Gencon, and a new product, printed mats with the picture from the... (Read More)

September 20th - via:
