The amount of feedback and interest we have received on our 3 upcoming Kickstarters (the Kurganova Shock Troops, the Dark Elves invasion, the Sisters of Eternal Mercy) has been way beyond our expectations and for many of you, the Dark Elves fans in particular, waiting for the Kurganova KS (Kickstarter) to be done before moving on to the next project is (quote) 'excruciating' (unquote).
So, we've organized our workflow to try to meet everybody's expectations are fast as possible.
The development phase (research, design, posing, sculpting, and 3D printing) is not really an issue as we've been working on these 3 projects for about 9 months now, and much has already been done. We are also currently increasing the size of our creative team to make sure that we can easily meet our internal deadlines.
However, it is crucial to know that manufacturing is the longer part of the process. A full manufacturing cycle (which comes after the masters are done: creating the moulds, casting prototypes, making production moulds, and then casting the minis) can take from 3 to 6 months when a full army is to be cast.
So we're faced with a tough decision: should we sit on the Dark Elves project and wait until the Kurganova KS is finished and delivered (which means around 5 months after the KS while the manufacturing process takes place), or, since we will have the sculpts ready, launch the Dark Elves Invasion KS a few weeks after the end of the Kurganova KS?
→ So, what do you think about this?
We'd very much like to hear from people who are thinking of participating in these KS campaigns.
Please keep in mind that this question is really about trying hard to figure out how to to please you if you intend to pledge on our Dark Elves or our (SF) Sisters of Eternal Mercy KS while at the same time having minis of top quality and as affordable as we can.
Well, as you know, to make this work, we need YOU! A smart reader suggested that we provide banners to help spread the word on the Kurganova Shock Troops Kickstarter. So, DONE! You can grab the banner below and link it to this Kickstarter page (http://www.ragingheroes.com/pages/kickstarter-news) we've just set up (until the Kickstarter is actually live). You can put it on your blog, or as your signature in forum posts, or anywhere else you can think of...
Or the French version:
→ Oh, and in case you haven't yet done so... please FRIEND US!
We've mentioned it before, but may we also strongly suggest that you ask us (Asharah Raging) as a friend on Facebook, (for communication purposes, "Friending" Asharah is more effective than "Liking" the Raging Heroes page). At this point in time, Facebook is probably the best way to get real time info on what's going on with our Kickstarter and other projects. Asharah Raging is already up 310+ Friends since we've started communicating on this! You can also follow us on Twitter. We're not very effective Twitterers yet, (but working on it); and all our Facebook posts do get an automatic Twitter update.
