Z One Design - Black Hallows Townsfolk

Recommended Posts

As I read the latest update, the issue is not shipping prices ... but running out of money.  And whatever monies are remaining are frozen in order to pay a tax bill ... which is, I intuit, a bill claiming more than the frozen remaining monies.  In addition, staffing issue are mentioned ... which, I intuit, may mean that no monies are available to pay staff.  These issues have led to the possibility of bankruptcy.  Finally, threats by backers to take legal action might result in the company being "seized" (whatever the UK process is?) by HM Revenue & Customs (in the US, the IRS) ... which would be the fault of anyone taking legal action against the creator.  

 

And other revenues to address these issues may or may not be generated by a past "industry".

 

Note that we haven't gotten to postage at all.

...We discussed in the last update about returning to our previous industry to raise funds to finish and deliver your pledges. We own two large cnc machines and a laser cutter that we plan to run. This type of work is perfect because the machines do most of the work with very little labour so our man power can be concentrated on finishing the models. This has started off really well with a large contract for one of the cnc machines machining motorsport parts and we are currently marketing for work for the other.

 

We are also producing other products for gaming which we will sell through our online store, ebay & etsy, which include dice boxes similar to our Dragon Realms Kickstarter boxes. Again, the machines do most of the work with little labour.

 

...

 

So the main thing now is to push to raise the funds we require and we will get back to manufacture as soon as possible. We will keep you updated with our progress on a regular basis.

 

 

So, I conclude, from this, that money is still the issue.  And, specifically, that the minis themselves have not, at all or in part, been produced.  But that, at some time in the future, the creator is hopeful that production of minis will commence.  Also, income from another business will hopefully be sufficient to satisfy the campaign's promises.

Sucks for everyone who backed this and are stuck in this state of Limbo. I backed both, but backed out of each one due to a lack of funds at the time. I really liked the look of these minis, too. They were some gorgeous villagers.

      Here is my most recent Townsfolk figure from the Bones 4 core set. He is also available in metal (SKU 03859). Two things I tried differently on this one were 1. no under-painting and 2. letting go. I usually apply an coat of German Camouflage Black-Brown over the whole figure to start when working with Bones. I know it has been shown many times that Bones are designed to go from blister to paint but I wanted to check it out for myself. I just went straight to the base colours, shading and highlighting with no issues.
       
      The second was more difficult. This was me telling myself to trust myself and the figure and not overwork the paint. I had to remind myself to pull back when I started thinking, "maybe I should add another blend or work that edge some more..." At first it was a little uncomfortable but after awhile everything sort of fell into place and I am happy with the results.

      This figure is available in metal sold as a single figure - Townsfolk: Sage. While I used the same base colours as my other townsfolk, I wanted to give the impression of somewhat fancier clothes. After shading and highlighting, I brightened the cloak and frock with GW inks (Biel-Tan Greeen and Carroburg Crimson respectively).

      Here is the Bones 4 version of the metal figure that is found in another townsfolk blister (referenced in tags). I continued to play with texture and also challenged my self to push the contrast.

      This is the Bones 4 version of the metal one that is found in a 3-pack of townsfolk figures. I took the opportunity to do some experimentation with rendering texture.

      I am churning out the Bones 4 core set NPC-types just to get them out of the way before I can get stuck in with the more interesting monsters and creatures. Apologies in advance for my lack of photographic skill. I thought I had found a good setting, but clearly not for all.
