May update and Survey reminder

Hi guys,

So it’s about time that you all had a bit of an update. First things first though, i need to remind those that are still to fulfil their pledge manager to do so.

I have been keeping it open at the request of some of you needing more time for various reasons, but i can not keep it open for too much longer. So with that in mind i need to let you know that the pledge manager will be closing on the 12th of May. That is the last date i can leave it to as i need to know numbers for any extra add-ons you guys my want. This also means that if any of you who have already fulfilled your pledge manager wish to add some extras, now is your last chance. Any postage will be combined on additional add-ons

Now, on to the update. So, i have some photos for you lets start with the Commander upgrade set.

 

The Commander upgrade set is on its way to being done. The new helmet needs to be sculpted and as you can see by this picture there is some cleanup work that is still pending.

Next, on to the Void Thief. I haven’t been happy with what i’ve been doing with the Void Thief miniature so i have scrapped the current pose and will be starting from scratch. I was finding her too static and didn’t embody the essence of the character. I am going to be starting a new armature today with a new pose so i will update again later on in the week with her progress.

 

This is the Void Thief prior to the sculpt being scrapped. The new one will have a more dynamic pose.

Now, on to the heavy battle robot. This is the one i’ve been looking forward to getting my teeth into. This guy is a mix of traditional sculpting/model making and 3D modelling.

 

The torso with some modifications ready for the 3D components to arrive.

As you can see the body is traditional sculpting/model making but there are some components that we are waiting on.

 

A bracket component that will be an option in the kit to add. The sphere is only 6mm diameter.

As soon as they arrive they will be going straight into a mould for the resin versions to be cast up ready for modification and additional work.

The next part that will be being worked on this week are the legs. I will post some pictures up along with the Void Thief later on in the week. This leaves on the Void Hound and the Breacher set left to do once these are finished. I will not be starting those until i have these done.

I am looking to get the first lot of metal casting off to our caster by the end of the week, so things are starting to move ever so closer towards fulfilment. If you guys have any questions please get in touch and i will answer them as soon as i can.

Thank you to all of you for being patient with the space between updates and i will catch you all in an update later on this week.

Cheers

John
