Wow, nicely done. Congratulations.

So a big chunk of time that I had an issue with was that, the molders capable of doing this stuff were not hard to find persay, but they had lower levels of detail from the cnc, compared to the amount the sculpts went into it. We also needed a molder capable of streamlining in freeform to CNC, and to beat the 0.2 that was so frequently common.

In the end, the waiting on details paid off.

This is the first test shot example, and I've been told the mold is going to be refined a bit more to bring out the details that much more. Despite that, take a look for yourself what HIPS is capable of ,and the level of detail.

From what I can tell from the photo he is looking good. I love the head style in particular.

Updated with box cover, and new pewter accessories for fauns. Centaur mold is last in production. Production starts in November. Discussing some details, but we are preparing to have this available for US and EU/UK markets in time.

Nice!
Has shipping commenced yet? Did you get the UK and US distributors sorted? If you are looking for an Oceania based one it could be worth while to speak to Might Ape (either NZ or OZ).

UK, North Star Figures will start with the pick up, Wargames Atlantic will be helping us with Australia, NZ, and even some retailer support with Golden Games in the US, including ourselves. Shipping should start soon in January. A centaur box and a faun box will be made available.

That Satyr is very creepy! I really like it. Can we see some scale shots of the centaurs with something like a CMON zcide mini or Perry plastic or something standard 28-32mm scale? That one review on a blog uses Mantic minis which are all over the place in terms of scale.

Some quick shots, the models are 28mm skeletons from WGA and the other a more historical appropriate scale from a hael Caesar spartan.

Update on box design cover, a sprue pic, and some examples of put together centaurs. We've also updated the website to reflect the options a tad better.

Wargames Atlantic will be helping with distribution in the UK, and US, as well as what we stock here at HQ. As soon as boxes hit the US, backers get the first half of their centaur and faun sprues.

So amidst the corona virus situation, borders closing and air restrictions, we've run into an issue where there is a panic surge for cargo space on the few planes that are flying out of China.

As a result, we have a situation where it is cost prohibitive at the current rate to fly product. Until this situation gets better, we will unfortunately have more delays. We're trying to reach out to the boat sector in the mean time, but either scenario has us waiting.

Deep apologies for the situation, I have had optimistic views for the past months, only to have it explode in the face as the world goes nuts.

In the mean time, enjoy your families, paint some minis, and hopefully we can get some stuff out soon.



just posted on facebook,

Air freight was ideal, 7-10 days, but less than ideal when you face a 300% mark up (ouch!). So plastics are on the boat for early May, and pewter will be expressed by DHL, but still has a wait in Hong Kong as the planes are catching up to the payloads. Should be here long before the plastics.

Either way, they are moving.

Then we can put this corona nonsense behind us, as we get the mail out. Though I understand some areas are still impacted according to UPS/Fedex, so results will vary.

Me and him were in agreeance air freight would have been the best bang for the buck, unfortunately the cost was dramatically high. Boat was best option amidst the virus. Should be good news in April and May. Especially May.

I received the package. It’s staying in my garage for a few days as a precaution, then I’ll open it up and check it out.

Nice one RGD!

For those in NZ who are waiting for retail for the Fauns and Centaurs, Mighty Ape says they will have them in stock by the end of this month (I presume that this also holds true for OZ).

If WGA got it in time, should come out in June for the restocks, and you guys will get first dibs. Depends on boat. The UK gobbled up a lot of the boxes. Noticed Northstar, and Miniature Market are already low or out of stock, Noble Knight in the US has some, and plenty of other smaller UK sellers.

Let me know, last thing I need to do is get the remainder of the shields and arms to those without. Had a surprise tariff around Jan-Feb, importing 10 k or so of pewter netted a 20% fee.
