April 18, 2015 Update

We have 3 days left on our Kickstarter and we unlocked our first Stretch Goal opening up the Repeating Crossbow, Shieldbearers, and alternate poses for the Archers and Crossbowmen. We are getting close to unlocking the next Stretch Goal which is going to be the Undead - reanimated corpses of fallen warriors and civilians who died building the Great Wall.

Over the past few days we also opened up some new Add-on items for purchase. The Drunken Master and Swordmaster below and we also had a backer purchase the highest pledge enabling him to have a miniature sculpted based on his design. Well, with the concept art approved we decided to offer that hero as an Add-on. You can check out all the action on the Kickstarter and jump in while the water is warm. :)

I completely understand but as a start-up company it is far cheaper to get into the industry with metals than with plastics. Plastic manufacturing is still incredibly expensive and we didn't want to take loans and risk the integrity of the business on taking a chance in plastic. Believe me when I say that I love plastic and most of my armies I build and paint are all plastic but I had to separate my opinion from a realistic approach to building our business. Believe me if we earn the money to justify making plastics it is the first thing on my list of things to do.

While these look good the fact that they are metal turns me off more than anything. Any reason you're not doing these in plastic?
