    Congrats!! Just pledged for a set. Take a deep breathe and relax mate, there is only so much you can do in one day. Opening my own business so I know how tiring it can and how much work it takes.

    Enjoy the rest of the campaign! and congrats again!!

    It's been a load of fun and a load of work. As addictive and fun as it has been, I can't wait for next Sunday to be able to get a little sleep!

    Don't get me wrong guys, I wasn't complaining, as I'd assumed it was always voluntary, but was just curious. Sparks is doing an amazing job with the Facebook page! I actually have a hard time keeping up with his postings and the mini-comp he's doing there has been a lot of fun to watch.

    From what I hear, this Brambleton person is an all around amazing person, able to leap small buildings in a single bound. :)

    Portal will most certainly be here in 2015. Its basically become a voluntary thing now. As Alex says its done by folks fitting in their spare time so takes a good while longer.

    As for Brambleton hes a Mackem sympathiser

    Who's this Brambleton? I see the name pop up everywhere but I've never seen them post anything ;)

    Looking forward to seeing everything unfold, hope everything goes to plan for the year.

    VC - As fas as I am aware Sparks is trying his best to keep everything ticking over but when everyone involved is doing it on their own time it can sometimes stall a little when real life takes over for even one or two people. That said, he is doing a rather nifty job with the Facebook page at the moment to keep the name visible.

    All sounds good brother! Looks like 2015 will be the year of WAMP with all the good stuff going on. Just curious, will Portal be making a comeback this year?

    thanks guys.

    @Phatkid a lot of the delay can be down to just waiting. if you are using a well renowned caster or sculptor.painter then they often have a long waiting list. Some sculptors I know are currently booked up for the next 12 months. Another aspect to consider is kick-starter has booked up a lot of casters. Again I know of companies that have sculpts waiting for casting a year down the road.

    Brilliant article and very informative. I am certainly in the category of one day commissioning a one off sculpt to call my own. That seems a step closer now that I have a rough insight into the cost involved. I certainly have a few ideas (the easy bit). It also makes a bit more sense now in terms of the long wait customers have to endure after seeing artist impressions from the renowned miniature companies. Who knew there was so much involved! Anyway, lots of food for thought there - nice one bud!

    A good read, and I expect part II to be even more interesting.
    I'm particularly curious to the difference in manufacturing process between resin and metal (and to a lesser extent plastic), so I hope that will make an appearance.

    Out of interest, will you be covering the casting/manufacturing process? I'd be very interested as to how a sculpt is cut up and cast.

    Looking forward to the next article.
    I will touch on it in the second part though only what I know which is somewhat limited but hopefully enough for a decent overview
