Cheers Orlando for doing my job for me and sharing the update! The KS has been such a runaway success so far, I've been inundated with messages and questions - it's surprising how full on running a KS can be!

The next stretch goal beyond £15k will be announced soon...

Cheers for backing everyone!

Good day, backers!

Twenty lucky individuals (you know who you are) managed to pledge at the Grim Collector level (a set of Grim Tarock cards with additional hand-drawn squiggles/doodles by Ian Miller on the box). This pledge 'sold out' within something like ten minutes of the project launching. Subsequently, quite a few of you whomissed out have asked us if it would be possible to make more Grim Collector boxes available to backers.

Well, after speaking with Ian, it would appear the answer is yes. Yes, we can!

Ian has agreed to make 15 more Grim Collector decks available to backers. These additional 15 decks will be available at GBP30 on a new pledge level that will be created at some point tomorrow Tuesday 19th November. Apologies for the deliberate vagueness, but hopefully this gives most backers a chance to read this update before the pledge goes live. It is the fairest way we could think of.

Naturally, as this pledge is limited to 15 collector decks, it is first come, first served. We will not be making anymore since Ian does not want to over commit himself - these doodles take time, you know!

So, keep your eyes peeled tomorrow, folks... And good luck!

Yep, Creature of Havoc cover from the 1980s. Classic

A couple of you mentioned something that I totally forgot to include: What do the back of the cards look like? I apologise for this oversight on my part and will attempt to rectify this now.

Behold the back of the cards!




Another question raised was, "Will all the cards, including stretch goal cards, fit in the box?" The answer to this one is YES! The printer will ensure the template they use for the boxes fits however many cards we end up with (currently 78+4). Talking of stretch goals...

An announcement will be made very soon regarding the next couple of stretch goals. Since the Grim Tarock Kickstarter has been going so well, we have been frantically trying to keep up with all you backers, whilst at the same time ensuring we a) give you the best bang for your buck, and b) we do not inadvertently over-promise and end up getting our costs wrong. But do not fear; there is at least one more freebie stretch goal on the horizon!

Next update coming soon...

Cheers!

Ian & James


P.S. We also have some mockups of the art book interior coming soon



Automatically Appended Next Post:
Art book

Just thought we'd share a mockup of the art book showing the cover and an interior spread. Please note that this is just a mockup - the final printed book may look slightly different, although only in a better way, of course.

The book will feature one plate per page, per card (including those unlocked during the campaign). So as things stand, we are looking at around 90 pages. Full colour, printed on a lovely paper stock with a beautiful cover, perfect bound in soft back format. This should give you a good idea of the type of book you will be getting. Not bad for a tenner!*







(*British slang for GBP10)


More stretch goals

The latest stretch goals are now up and ready to be had when we hit £18k and £21k:







Thanks for backing!

Hello! Hope you are all safe and well

Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well and keeping safe during these times.

This is just a very quick update to share the link to the official Cartamundi COVID-19 response (this is actually dated from a few days ago). You can read their company-wide update here.

In other, Ian Miller-related news, there is a very big project underway - one that Ian and myself have been collaborating on for the past couple of years. We will be making an announcement fairly soon, but in the meantime all I can say is that it is a board game and that it is set in a fantasy world born from his wonderfully grim, deliciously dark artwork.

As a teaser, here is a piece of concept art from the project.



I hope to have some news from my print manager at Cartamundi soon, and when I do I will be sharing that news here.

In the meantime, stay safe people!



Board Game?...….. Ian Miller art...…. consider me interested

Hi everyone! I trust you are all safe and well.

I received this email today from my print manager at Cartamundi:

"At the moment, it is due to be ready to leave Belgium on 17th July, then delivery is 2 – 3 days... If it is ready any earlier, I will make sure we send it out earlier, sometimes they do manage to gain a few days."

I am very sorry that this date is not any sooner, but I hope that you can appreciate the COVID-shaped spanner that has been thrown into the works! As soon as I get the decks from Belgium, I will commence shipping.

In the meantime, here is another piece of concept artwork by Ian for the upcoming tabletop game project. More info on that soon...



Stay safe folks!
