So saw the official announcement that the pre-order starts the 28th. Guess all these US shops jumped the gun quite a bit when they started pre-orders almost 2 months ago.


I believed the 28th is for preordering directly from the official webstore, they gave retail stores a 2 month window for preorders first.

Preorders are up now with a bonus transparent Dragonborn. Hopefully they make it available separately in the future as I have already already preordered elsewhere. Boxes are available in HIPS and Resin, would be interested to see the different. They also have some scenery and playmat available (shame the transparent Dragonborn isn’t included with the scenery bundle).

I would like the transparent figure, as free is free, but even then I'm still happy I preordered locally as once you add shipping in to the US I probably would have paid 60% more then what I paid for my pre-order here.

I didn’t realise the plastic retail bundle doesn’t come with the scenic bases which is a shame as the Fallout ones are really good. They are exclusive to the resin versions.

That's a bummer but basing is not really a big deal for me at least. Odd that the plastic version wouldn't have them.

Morning folks. Some answers to your questions

Yes, we let the retail guys have a few months clear air to put their pre-orders up. We were also waiting for final confirmation that the stock had shipped. The current health situation in China had an impact with our product made and in containers, but unable to leave port.

The plastic is 100% HIPS/hard plastic. No PVC/plastic resin etc here.

The resin sets are available direct from us at present, though there will be some resin in retail for sets that are not having styrene versions produced.

The HIPS models don't include the scenic bases as tooling them would have added a huge cost to both production and final product cost. We are planning on doing themed sets of bases in the future that will allow those who buy the styrene but want the detail bases will be able to pick them up.

The alt Dragonborn will move into retail/general release in time. It might be standard resin not the transparent version but if we do go that way, we'll likely keep ghost guy as a show promo.

Comparison shots of the resin minis vs the plastic are coming. There are a few details that had to be changed/removed for the plastics (plus the basing difference) but they are very close in detail.

If folks have specifics they want answering, drop me a line here and I'll do what I can to help.

Thanks very much Jon. Especially happy to hear scenic bases will be available in future separately. Any idea how close to release?

That depends on what I push back from sculpting and what space I make in production...

Its a quick(ish) win as we can reuse many of the assets that went into creating the current ones, but that does mean less time on all the exciting new things that I can't talk about yet

I'll speak to 3D and see how much they throw at me when I ask for them

Question on the terrain. Looks like from the scale shots posted today it's roughly 4" (10cm) long for your standard gaming tile? Just wondering if the puzzle door will fit in with some of my 3D printing stuff.

I'll also add that even though I have STLs for some various dungeon themes if Modiphius released a STL set for delve or the eventual RPG I'd buy them but hard to justify buying physical terrain unless it's a pretty unique thing like the door.

I’ll measure up on Monday.

We are very interested in exploring the 3D printing sphere as much as physical trust me. Let’s face it, if we don’t, someone else will, or already has in some cases...

Chris pushed hard for the scenery to be ready for launch and there are more sets coming.

Yep the 3D printing sphere moves fast. I'm planning on running Fallout 2d20 when it's out and just got a slew of vault tiles for printing. Elder Scrolls are hard to compete in that area as so much is generic fantasy but there's nothing that quite matches the barrows in feel. I also like to support the people making the games.

These look really nice!

Sorry if I missed it, but what are the scale on the guys? 30mm? Or a bit bigger?

Thanks!

I play...

Sigh.

Who am I kidding? I only paint these days...

Almost Monday...

The walls are 14cm/5.5" long, 6cm/2.33" high and 2cm/0.6" deep
The door is basically the same
The pillars are the same height and about 2cm on each face for the triangles and 3cm on the trapezoid.

The arch is about 15cm high and each section is 13cm end to end on the base with the arch extending about another 5cm.

You all think the scale will fit in well with Mierce miniatures? Wondering whether I can mix the collections.

older Mierce probably not as they're more 25mm. Newer stuff probably.

Has the Elder Scrolls stuff already been shipped into the retail market, or will it have to wait until May for release?

Hey folks.

We are still waiting to hear when we will be able to release the game, product has now landed here and the US, but is snarled up in freight backlog, plus warehouse, distro and stores are all on lockdown.

To keep you entertained while you wait, we've put the rulebook and get started guide up for free, plus the campaign book is also available for a small fee.

As soon as we know more on the release front, we'll advise.
