It’s that random time again of our irregular, regular updates. We’ve been busy getting everything moving forward here and as those of you who have been following us on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook will have seen we have been making big steps towards our end goal and getting all the sculpts finished.
For those of you who haven’t here are some of the recent developments.
Heavy Battle robot
The 3D files have been completed and are now with the printer. As you can see in the picture the Elsor-Varo Heavy Battle Robot stands taller than the standard Battle Robot and has a new style of arm. The only two things left to do on the miniature is the shoulder mounted launcher and the left hand battle shield, which we are waiting for the actual arm to be printed out before we make it as It is going to be traditionally sculpted, not CG. The set will contain over 20 components for the Kickstarter as there are two different sets of feet that will come with it. We will release a full list of components in the coming weeks.
Mechanical Upgrade set
The Mechanical upgrade set has been complete. The master model components for metal casting are with our caster ready to go and the resin components are in their mould box curing.
We have added a second body into the set with the rear section missing so you can have a choice of either the modified mech version or the standard version with your mechanical arm backpack. There is also a plate in there to attach to the back of either body which basically, with the two heads and two different arms, gives you two miniatures for the price of one upgrade set if you wanted to or share the upgrades amongst your entire force.
Void Hound and Thief
The Void Hound has been started and we will have some pictures of that coming your way soon, so keep an eye out on our social media pages for updates on that.
The Void Thief has been completely re-sculpted. I wasn’t happy with the pose she had and as I didn’t feel that the picture was dynamic enough for the type of character she was supposed to be, so started from scratch.
She now has more of a dynamic pose that gives more of a feel of what a Void Thief is all about. More pictures of her will be coming your way soon, too. The hands holding the weapons will be sculpted separate to the model so you can kit her out with whatever you want, but she will have the pistol and sonic dagger weapon load out as standard.
The resin casting is going to be going on hold for the next few weeks. It’s usually around this time of year (my birthday) that I take my annual holiday, but this year I am only taking a part holiday. What I mean is I will still be sculpting bits for the Kickstarter, but I will also be taking some time out from the general running of the business (orders from the online store, admin, logistics, etc). This leads me to my next topic I wanted to talk about…
Yes, I’m sorry to say there are a few delays with the printing and casting of the Robot parts and the metal components. Our caster is a bit swamped at the moment, but we have spoken with them and they are saying that they should be able to have all the work done by mid to late June. Unfortunately these things do happen, but we’re on it and will let you guys know if there are any changes to this time frame.
This is a reminder for those that have missed the survey to get in touch with us so that we can sort out your postage and packaging for your Kickstarter items and any add-ons you wish to include in your rewards. If you don’t contact us we can’t send out your items, and we want you to get your rewards for supporting this project.
I’d like to say thank you again to all of you who have supported us and kept the dialog going outside of the Kickstarter via the social media sites. I would also like to invite you to join us in our Kickstarter backer and supporters group over on Facebook. THE DWEORG – Kickstarter backer and supporters group where you can get more updates about the current project status and get behind the scenes information and updates as we continue to evolve the Dweorg and their universe. It’s only for backers and supporters so let us know that you’ve backed us when you request to join.
Cheers guys, and I’ll catch you all in the next update.
