  1. I would like to chime in as a creator. Kickstarter allows people like me to build a product line and to make big and complicated models in a single go. It would take me, at my pay level, 1 to 2 years to save the amount of money that I could get from a single campaign. One of the greatest accomplishments I am the most proud of is that I have delivered on every campaign and better yet delivered good models. For any company delays are common and can come up for any reason. Using myself as an example I have had delays because of because of artists, larger companies taking my spot in line, re-sculpting of models that did not measure up, red tape, shipping from all over the world, cutting down models to prep them for casting, running out of and the reordering of supplies, I have had to wait until after Gencon to even place order for casting, this list does not even stop their. One of the biggest thing that causes delays is success. Success creates a ton more work that was not in the original campaign. If a campaign was for lets say 5 28mm models that would take 3 weeks to hand sculpt, and then lets say every thing goes well at the caster it can take another 3 weeks for the whole casting process. If the campaign is successful and has stretch goals like additional models, this stretches out the sculpting and casting time needed just to get your goods too you. So unless the campaign stays small, the successful campaign you backed will be late. I have done allot to speed up the production of my last campaign, I hired 5 sculptors, 3 artists, and did everything in my power to try to plan around large shows and holidays, and I still ran late. As to the second part of this question, I have not thought about running a second campaign while I still had a active/ fulfilling campaign. I have started the planning process to build another campaign when the last campaign was finishing up.
  2. I am supplying models to this campaign. The prices listed are retail. I should let you know that the price for several models in my Out of the Mysts campaign was estimated. For example, Quetzacoalt ended up almost 2 to 3 times larger then it was meant to be so its retail price went up. So did several other modes. Other models dropped in price and others stayed the same. You guys and gals have no idea how bad I feel when I get the prices wrong like that during a campaign.
  3. Just so you know the pre-order store is now closed. We have finished building a web store and we are looking for opinions on how we did and to see if we need to make any fixes. Here is a link to their facebook page if you want to help with this effort. https://www.facebook.com/Paymaster-Games-359212084153483/
  4. Lexomatic, I am sorry that the shipping was a bad experience. I will look into the problem for the future deliveries to The Great White North. Did the models and package arrive alright?
  5. I am looking at redoing the Ahklut this year. I had a lot of problems with that sculpt so I want to address this with a new pose and greater detail.
  6. I am getting allot of requests for more models. The pre-order store is still open. Please help your self. Accouple of notes - I only have a few restocks to do (I know I am a down to less then 5 of the Cloud Serpents, a couple of goddesses and Quetzalcoatl). I still several other monsters, pack llamas, Dog Travois (my wife calls them a dog cart). Please do not order any of the Aztec Commoner troops (warriors, Spears, Archers, and Slingers) or the Ahklut, the orca-wolf, I have discontinued these models and sold the last ones I had in stock. If you want to order something that you think might be out of stock
  7. I do not know if I am allowed to post links to other my store. My Pre-order store is still open. I only have a few restocks to do (I know I am a down to less then 5 of the Cloud Serpents, a couple of goddesses and Quetzalcoatl). I still several other monsters, pack llamas, Dog Travois (my wife calls them a dog cart). Please do not order any of the Aztec Commoner troops (warriors, Spears, Archers, and Slingers) or the Ahklut, the orca-wolf, I have discontinued these models and sold the last ones I had in stock. Moderators if you read this can I share the link?
  8. Larger companies have distributors in different territories. I have attempting to go the same route with a lot of difficulty. I just finished sending allot packages to the Netherlands and the heaviest package postage was about $25.
  9. Thanks for the honest reviews. I glad you guys liked the sculpts on the models and kits.
  10. Sorry about that labeling thing, it never crossed my mind. Thanks for the compliments on the model kits.
  11. All orders have been shipped as of today. Let me know how you like your models.
  12. I am sorry about the delay. As of right now I am looking to have all of the orders out on Monday.
  13. Hello Everyone, This is the last weekend of the pre-order store. Those of you that place a new order this weekend will receive a couple of free packs of discontinued models from my early days. Please pass this note off to your friends and your game groups about this offer. Thanks everyone, Marc w/ Paymaster Games
  14. most of the heroes are planned as one piece models, allot of times the model ends up getting cut up during the casting process. As the models are planned as multi-part models - - Itzpapalotl, the Obsidian Wings (her butterfly) - Both forms of Coatlicue (Her back pack/serpent heads) - aztec temple priest (his backpack will have two different options) - Pacific Northwest Shaman (3 different masks) - White Buffalo Woman (i do not think their will be any way to do this model with out it being a multi-part model) As to the rest of the heroes it will be impossible to tell at this time.

  21. they are one piece models instead of the multi part model. The PNW troops are a combination of different pnw tribes, the Makah Harpooner are based on the old photos of the Makah Tribe. I also wanted to make models of this tribe because they are local to me in Washington state. here is the models, the center model is the leader.
