Yup, it is this time of year :P . So if you're not faint of heart and can stand mumblings of tabletop figures company guy read on.
In the last couple of weeks I've been trying to wrap up our workshop's 2014 – what has changed, what went good and what went bad. Not an easy thing for me considering amount of things I've been involved in. So why do it you may ask? Well, I think it gives us a certain perspective and ability to catch a breath a tad. Which is definitely welcome considering the pace of the changes.
I'll start with something you haven't seen but I think it had greatest impact on us. The crew has changed – MUCH. Now I can...
The countdown has begun - last days of the campaign have started. What a ride - this Kickstarter turned out to be so much more than we expected. The reception is great and all the stretch goals have unlocked - simply awesome!
So we were more than happy to throw some exclusives to the mix. Zuzanna Lapies is working on a concepts for gen. Smacton with his trusty pet. Sooooo characterful - Konrad seems to be really into starting sculpting this fella.
The 2nd exclusive is sneaky gobbo for which concept has been graciously provided by Kerim.
Gen. Smacton will be added to leader lvl pledges and higher, sneaky gobbo to...
Oh yeah! Our Kickstarter campaign funded in no time - stretch goals fell one after another. Still lots to do but this Orc & Goblins army will be awesome!
In this video I have tried to sum 1st week up:
And here's a quick pic of the item recently added - artillery:
The wait is over - TheGreenAlliance KS is live! I'm super excited and can't wait to see which WW2 US themed Orc&Goblin goodies unlock.
The campaign can be found here:
Good times! If you like it please help in spreading the word :) .
You may wonder what can you expect from TheGreenAlliance Kickstarter campaign. In this article I will try to shed some light on the matter.
First of all – expect a whole bunch of fun models :)!
The campaign will be launched through UK site. This means that default currency will be GBP – we have no influence on that. But if you find currency translations a chore fear not – all pledge levels have a clear translation to USD. We've did our best to make it very simple and straightforward.
Another important factor is that pledges are meant to be flexible, so you can choose contents of your army. Yup – no "fixed", pre-built sets :) .
Good news - we've just got a confirmation from KS staff that our campaign is all fine. So the campaign aiming to bring a full sci-fi Orc&Goblins army inspired by WW2 US equipment will start on September 10.
Summer is in full swing out here - super hot and lovely weather :) . But even though part of the team makes use of their holidays , the work in the workshop is as usual at full pace. In fact most of us work more than usual - to make for the lucky fellas that have their breaks ;) .
Pace of new releases has calmed a tad (but only for now - Green Alliance is coming! - and we can get to working on regular ranges) , but this does not mean it stopped. In fact we had some cool additions recently.
First of all - Andromech. It was something that has been sketched out by Tadzio Piccirillo aka FreakForge and waited for a good opportunity to...
One of the craziest Creative Fridays creations hits the store - Zug the Magnificent is here :) . Not only super cool sculpt by Konrad but also a fancy studio paintjob by Chris (I hope that Chris will bring a tutorial on how he did this one).
The model is cast in high quality resin and comes in 2 parts - orc with cannon and a jolly gobbo.
And if you overlooked render of teh sculpt here it is :
