Wave 18 and 19 shipments are underway
Waves 18 and 19 are ongoing and Wave 20 will begin shortly. 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!

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 18 Miniatures: October 9th 2017
Wave 19 Miniatures: November 6th 2017
Wave 20 Miniatures: February 19th 2018
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!
- ALLAN CARRASCO: Allan's completed work on the Beasts of Machairá Peat, and that concludes his work for us on this project!
BOB PŁOCIENNIK: Bob has Selkilias, Scethæn and the Hydrar Unit from this project. He's doing Marzaon too, now...
- YANNICK FUSIER: He'll be converting the Oghu Watchers, Armoured Oghurithne Unit of course.
TIM PROW: Tim's done Murderous Cúlaítar and Cowering Scecchus, and then he's going to do the Shieldwall Dyndraig and the Cowering Fiends of Dis from this project.
Many sculpts to go, but we're getting there...
