We are very happy and excited to tell you that our foundry has been working round the clock and has cast virtually all pre-orders. The dispatch of pre-orders has already started, with the rest to follow on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Although it has been a fairly long endeavour, we have now established a good process for the future and we will be able to release more resin figures and large kits such as the Manticore in the coming months.
The additional delays of the past few weeks were due to a major technical setback just after we had begun casting the first 20 Manticores. The issues were eventually solved, but it was a bit touch-and-go for quite a few days, and we probably all have a few more grey hair then when we started. However, everything was masterfully resolved by the foundry, and the final casts came out even better.
We have excellent news for you today. Our foundry has just confirmed to us that the first batch of Manticores / Lamassus is being delivered tomorrow. Production will continue throughout the week and we expect all pre-orders to be fulfilled by next Monday.
We will post pics of the first casts tomorrow. (Tuesday).
We want to thank you all again for your patience. We won't bore you with the gory details, but this project has been quite an epic task from the very beginning, and we are really excited to be able to provide such a miniature at a reasonable price. (Speaking of which, pre-order pricing ends Wednesday…)
Once again, thank you all for your confidence and for making this Manticore such a success!
