It has been a long slog but Monsters of Underdeep 2 is nearing completion. Fulfillment for the KS has taken longer than expected and we have made inroads into making sure we do not take as long to fulfill on our next Kickstarter. We have had two main issues. The primary issue was the pledge manager. I thought, after some research, that we had improved the KS pledge manager since our first KS however we ended up having more missing, not completed and incorrect PM’s than last time. This lead to me having to break fulfillment into waves, something we would not have had to do if we used a bona fide, dedicated pledge manager system. We will be doing this for the Goblin-kind KS.
Secondly, we have had issues due to the speed of manufacture. I have taken the decision to split the manufacturing on our next KS between two separate companies. This will allow them to focus on specific miniatures each and cut down on the complexity of the orders.
On to the exciting news… the Goblin sculpts have been started and we have had some WIP images. Some of you may have seen on our Facebook page that we have redesigned the Goblin Skulk for this new KS and more Goblin renders will be available very soon. The next KS is likely to be later this year and will be your chance to help fund the ENTIRE goblin-kind range. This will include additional Bugbears (a generic warrior type known as the Brute and with a two handed weapon), Hobgoblins, Wolf-raiders, the Goblin King, Shamans, Champions, Goblin Warriors, monsters and a myriad of other bits and bobs.
Keep an eye out on our blog or on the KS page for more information. For now have a look at the new WIP Goblin Skulk sculpt. His cloak will be more flowing and defined on the finished model but we would love to hear your thoughts. Please comment below!
