Edit June 4th: The Kickstarter is LIVE!! Click here!!
Until now, we had only shown concepts of heroine characters for the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy Kickstarter.
But what makes the bulk of an army are the troops.
So here is a first image of what you can expect in terms of Troops:
Note: Latest Kickstarter update continues below image...
And if you want to know what got us started on the Toughest Girls of the Galaxy, check out the Kurganova sisters...
We do realize that some of you are wondering what is taking us so long to launch the KS.
Believe us when we say that we are at the point where we'd like to throw caution to the wind and get it launched!
But in a way, the administrative delays we faced have been a blessing:
- as mentioned earlier, it gave us the opportunity to raise more awareness for the project and thus give it a better chance of success and a broader scope (more stretch goals!);
- we spent more time planning the production process with our suppliers, which among other things has allowed to come up with a new optimisation of the moulding process,giving us the opportunity to put more things in the multi-part kits than we originally expected;
- we also are very aware that other Kickstarters have had planning difficulties; we truly sympathise with what the backers as well as the Kickstarter creators are going through, it is really hard to imagine the amount of work and preparation involved in such large endeavours... This is also the reason why we don't want to launch unless we are fully ready (which is really soon now);
- we've read on many forums that "if the sculpts are even half as good as the concepts, I'm in"; well, we strive to have sculpts that are virtually IDENTICAL to the concepts!
But such work takes time, not only in sculpting, but more importantly, in posing, so as to achieve the same emotions and feelings that each concept has. A base sculpt is often done in a few days. But finalising it to our exacting standards can sometimes take several weeks, and several people. If things take time, it's because we want to provide you with the best miniatures that we can achieve.
As a special treat, though, know that we're working on a kick-ass video for the launch! Our most recent nights have been filled with compositing, 3D renderings, HRDI environments, sound editing...
And enter our 2nd Sweepstakes to win Raging Heroes miniatures!
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 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:
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 420+ 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.
