Update 7 - Campaign Close Out, Backerkit Information, Surveys and More
12 months ago – Sat, Dec 14, 2019 at 07:10:39 AM

Hello Backers! 

As we near the final weekend of the campaign, I thought today would be a good time to outline some of the upcoming steps ahead for when the campaign closes.  First though, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your overwhelming support of this campaign! 

These finished models are the result of countless hours of experimentation, new challenges, and sculpting benchmarks I have set for myself, and I am super excited to get these files out to everyone and onto your printers. Your support and words of encouragement have kept me working hard and learning new ways to bring my ideas into reality!  Without that, I would not be able to dedicate myself or my time to the process, and words can not express the gratitude I have for each of you! You are all awesome, and I hope you get many years of enjoyment out of each of these terrain pieces! 

As we approach the final few days of the campaign, here are some things to keep in mind for the days ahead. The campaign will close on Tuesday at midnight Eastern Time in the U.S. From there the Backerkit page will launch within one to three days following its closure if not sooner. The Backerkit page is going to allow Ranger's Pass pledges to select individual sets with the $5 pledge already set as a credit in the service. 

In addition, the first set of Backer Surveys will go out via Kickstarter's own survey system. This survey process will include an area for Backer suggestions which will be used to formulate the ideas for voting on the terrain sets in all unlocked in stretch goals! 

From there a second survey will go out within one week via Backerkit which will arrive directly to Backer emails, this will allow every backer to finalize their pledge, make changes to their pledge if needed, and also allow another chance to suggest stretch goal pieces if you missed the first survey. 

It is approximately a two week waiting period between the close of a Kickstarter campaign and the time frame Backerkit allows for distribution. The core set will be delivered within that time frame, but I will keep everyone updated on an exact day!

Once all the suggestions are in and all of the core set models have been delivered, I will make an announcement sometime in early January 2020 and send a polling link out either through a closed update, or through the survey system directly to your email, which will begin the voting process. 

Once the votes are tallied, planning and construction of the stretch goals will begin, with frequent updates so you can see the renders and print tests as they are being created! (And maybe just a few more surprises for you wonderful folks that aren't officially planned!) 

If you have any questions about anything, please direct message me, or send me a shout out in the comments sections! I will get back to you as soon as possible! If there are any questions once Backerkit surveys go out, I can walk you through the process to get you set up to receive your direct downloads.  

Thank you all; I will have more exciting news to share very soon!   

Sincerely, 

Michael

Hello Backers! 

Just a brief announcement today to share some very exciting news!  We have now officially unlocked Level 2 of the  Backers'Roulette, which means another customized terrain set has been added for everyone in the Holy Knight pledge level! As with the first unlock, the stretch goal is completely open to your suggestions for its creation! 

Please check out those earlier updates for information on the stretch goal unlocking, or get in touch with  me through a message or comment if you have any additional questions. 

Thank you all so much for your support! I will have more information for everyone over the next 10 days as the campaign begins to near its close with core set deliveries set to begin shortly after!

Update 5 - Journey through the Spider's Lair
12 months ago – Fri, Dec 06, 2019 at 12:16:52 AM

Hello Backers! 

Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! I just wanted to share some photos of the cavern and spiders' lair terrain pieces in action from my friend Alex, with Wright Terrain Studio.

Alex was nice enough to test print and paint some of the terrain pieces in this set during the early stages of development, and is still hard at work with these in his studio!  He really helped me out when I was getting the project started, and I wanted to take some time to share his recent builds.

 Alex has been incorporating my printed terrain pieces into his own games, and building customized platforms and rock sections of his own for some of them, which I thought was super exciting!

He has done an outstanding job painting these pieces! Here is a close up, which really captures the nuances and textures of each rock section embedded in the finished prints. The dry brush really highlights the details, and brings out more of the realism in each rock face.

Also, here is a good photo to show the size of the overall pieces in relation to some 28 mm scale miniatures. My goal with these was to make sure the texture was there for a fun painting experience, so every model really takes a dry brush well, and will highlight those details to provide some interesting results.

Wright Terrain Studio has posted more photographs featured on the studio Facebook page, if you want to check them out! Also, we are nearing another unlock goal on the Backer's Roulette scale, which means the potential for another added terrain set for everyone! For those who may have missed some of the details on the stretch goal unlocking process, please check out Updates 2 and 3 for more information.

After the campaign closes, backer surveys will include an area for suggestions, which will then be voted on for the creation of each new set. The roulette will continue to scale into additional unique, customized terrain sets that will be added as the campaign progresses! 

Thank you all for your overwhelming support! I can't wait to share these files with you, and start working on the new terrain pieces for the unlocked stretch goals! I am very curious to see what you have in mind for those, so please drop your ideas in the comment section to discuss with the other party members. Hope you all have a great weekend! 

Sincerely,

Update 3 - Backers' Roulette Stretch Goal Opened!
12 months ago – Thu, Dec 05, 2019 at 02:55:33 PM

Hello Backers! 

Today will be a quick update! The backers' roulette stretch goal for backer suggestions and customized models has officially unlocked! As mentioned in the last update, please feel free to share all of your ideas on what you would like to see for the stretch goals in the comments. Instead of one model per stretch goal in the roulette, the plan is to make an entire set of pieces, which can include a modular set like the Tormented Village or one large scale structure like the Cursed Tower. Anything can be suggested, and the entire party will decide which path to take following the campaign!

Sewers, catacombs, and underground dungeon sets seem to be very popular in the recent comments from Update 2, so I am currently penning up some concept art for those, and seeing how we might bring that into reality! If the set is voted on and is modular, perhaps it might be fun to incorporate OpenLOCK again if that is something everyone is interested in. Please let me know if you have any questions and jump into the discussion with your party members in the comments section! Thank you so much for your support; I am excited to see what everyone has in mind! 

Sincerely, 

Michael 

Update 2 - Concept Art and Backer Ideas!
12 months ago – Thu, Dec 05, 2019 at 02:52:26 PM

Hello Backers! 

Thank you all for your overwhelming support and for making the first week of the campaign such an outstanding success! Your support keeps me going and working hard!  As we near the potential unlocking of the backers' roulette stretch goal, I thought today might be a good day to share some of my  concept art, and also open up the book for suggestions and new backer ideas! I read every comment and check my messages daily, but want to use this update to allow backers to discuss ideas with one another. 

Fortress of the Snow Hag concept art.

Instead of just one single model per stretch goal unlocking in the backers' roulette, my hope is to stick with the pledge level designs from the core set with backers directing the creation process! Each stretch goal can be either a multi-piece scatter set that fits a specific theme, or environment. They can also be a modular set like the Tormented Village,  or a large scale structure similar to The Cursed Tower. Also, expansions to any existing sets is something we can do as well! In addition, I also have some ideas in the sketchbook I can toss into the mix, so these artist ponderings are also going to be available for everyone to draw inspiration from! 

In the meantime, through your comments and discussions,  I will start work on designing concept sketches and brainstorming how to make those ideas become a reality.  Please message me directly or get at me in the comments if you have any questions. Thank you all so much; I look forward to seeing what you have in mind! Have a wonderful weekend!

Sincerely, 

Michael
