Waves are gone...
We've decided to remove the "Wave" system, for the simple reason that we just try to get stuff out when we can; it's confusing for us, let alone you guys, so we're just going to give you months instead of waves.
Regardless, we will try to get everything out as soon as we can, but there's a lot to ship - and as always we prioritise orders in date sequence; i.e., if you ordered early, you'll get your stuff sent early.
What we're saying, basically, is - please be patient! We are doing everything as fast as we can without compromising on quality.
Metals will ship at separate times
The metal versions of miniatures (if there are any) will ship at least one wave later than the resin versions; it takes a while to get them ready to be cast in metal.
Now that we're used to working with the external casters we can give you a little idea of what goes on. Usually, it takes at least a month to get the master metal moulds from sending the miniatures to them; and then we must check these masters for errors and then either amend or okay them. Then they go into production, which takes another month.
Whilst we are using metal casters that are second to none in terms of quality, they are so busy it can take a while to get miniatures from them!
What Ships When
Here's an up to date list of what we think will be shipped when.
- SHIPMENT WAVE 0 (complete): Existing miniatures
SHIPMENT WAVE 22 (June 2018): Bānbreca, Ettenwiht of Lind Combe - Tower Bānbreca, Ettenwiht of Lind Combe with War Tower
SHIPMENT WAVE 28 (August 2019): Shieldwall Aadolf - Great Cleaver Aadolf
AUGUST 2020: Konraad's Mob, Great Club Ograx Reiver Unit (Konraad - Maanfrad - Kaarl - Aalric - Ottaa - Fraad - Aarlo) - Kaanrod's Mob, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit (Kaanrod - Fraanko - Kraal - Raalic - Aatto - Graanko - Kraalo) - Schyrós - The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit (Kerberós - Koma - Ýlós)
Items in green will DEFINITELY be sent in that wave as we have them in hand.
Items in yellow italics have been received from the sculptor or printer but not yet moulded. They should be sent in that wave, but it's possible they will slip into the next wave.
Items in italics are in progress and should make it into that wave, but we don't yet have the sculpt or 3d print.
Items not in bold or in italics may still make it into that wave, but may not.
There's still time to purchase everything from this project...
- Wave 26 Miniatures: 25th April 2019
The Rest: until they ship!
Keep watching this list as it may well change - and if you have any issues with the above timings, please let us know and we may well be able to push the deadline back a little for you.
We reserve the right to change any of the above dates without notice.
Sculpts and Sculptors
Here's the big list of who's sculpting what and when for Darklands: New Kindreds! Please bear in mind that this list may change over time, so don't take it as set in stone until the first work in progress shots appear.
We've split the lists into completely new sculpts and alterations to make life easier for us all!
- RAFAEL DIOLI: Rafael has completed the The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit, and that's him for this project!
YANNICK FUSIER: Yannick has completed sculpting the Great Club Ograx Reiver Unit, and after those he will sculpt Murcunn and the Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit.
BOB PŁOCIENNIK: Bob has completed the Leiptrolls and that's it for him, for this project!
- YANNICK FUSIER: Yannick has converted the Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit, just about!
Just three conversions left to do for this project!
We thought this would be a good idea, as things are cracking on - a list of completed sculpts, in kindred order! Completed sculpts are in green bold; in progress sculpts are in yellow italics.
New Sculpts and Alterations:
- ALBAINN: Murcunn - Oghu Wardens, Oghureach Unit
ATALANTES: The Sentinels, Kerberokolossos Unit (Kerberós - Koma - Ýlós)
FOMORAIC: Shieldwall Aadolf - Great Cleaver Aadolf - Konraad's Mob, Great Club Ograx Reiver Unit (Konraad - Maanfrad - Kaarl - Aalric - Ottaa - Fraad - Aarlo) - Kaanrod's Mob, Shieldwall Ograx Reiver Unit (Kaanrod - Fraanko - Kraal - Raalic - Aatto - Graanko - Kraalo)
