I'm not sure about the long-term longevity of the prints. I have seen some people echo your concern about prints weakening or getting brittle over time. I would think the primary issue would be if you left them in sunlight for months on end...but if you have them in a drawer or prime them, I don't s...

I definitely won't be able to match the detail of Excellent Miniatures, they are using some $10k Asiga machines I think. For the New Terra MBT specifically, sales look like: Year 1: 20 Year 2: 10 Year 3: 24 Year 4: 19 Which is actually fairly unusual, as the first year I typically sell the lion's sh...

For some added color, I recently sent a new 6mm scifi release to a moldmaker. The high-res prints alone cost me about $400, the molds will run me at least another $8-$900, and then of course the cost to have a single MBT cast will probably be 75 cents to a 1 dollar given the rise in tin costs. So th...

This will be a ramble-ish post. I have been running the business for over 10 years now, which is crazy to me. in that time I have seen the wargaming landscape change, drastically at times. The rise of crowdfunding, the explosion in 3D sculpting both from professionals and hobbyists, the impact of ar...

It took a while to actually get them to recognize that I was a real business, that part was difficult. Other than that, the planning of the rewards and the number crunching takes some time, and actually setting up the campaign page maybe took me a day and a half. Altogether, not a huge ton of work. ...

For this particular KS, since it is my first one, I was trying to keep it pretty small, limited to one army really.

I also think that KS is the way forward in general. It boggles my mind how much better sales via KS are than straight to retail. it is hard to wrap my head around.

I've been in business for I think just about 12 years now, which is crazy to actually think about. During that time we have managed to release 18 distinct fantasy armies, as well as a ton of other stuff across multiple genres and scales, the newest of which being the 3mm fantasy line. A consequence ...

It has been a number of years, I don't think the author is updating the rules any longer.

@moredakka You might be better off asking on Facebook, or in the dedicated 3mm group on FB. @Templar2 Just got these pics from the sculptor yesterday...after 10 months, so quite the wait. https://i.imgur.com/AkaVBXl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/gmIqImy.jpg https://i.imgur.com/oDa7py8.jpg https://i.imgur....

Just a little update 3 months on from my last post. As usual, I have totally missed the release schedule I was trying to hit. My primary moldmaker and caster is focusing on his own Kickstarter projects for the second half of the year, which does cause some delays for my releases as moldmaking resour...
